The message is ‘Don’t displease Enrile,’ says Alan Cayetano

MANILA, Philippines—A warning against displeasing Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

This was the message behind the exclusion of four senators from the list of those who got P1.6 million each in additional budget from the Senate savings, Senate minority leader Alan Peter Cayetano said.

“[Enrile] wanted to send a message to all the senators: ‘If you cross [me], this is what happens,’” Cayetano told reporters at a dinner on Thursday.  “This definitely sends a chilling effect [and sets] a bad precedent,” he added.

Enrile came under fire on Tuesday after an unnamed senator accused him of committing an “unconstitutional” and “unconscionable” act of converting Senate savings to additional MOOE (maintenance and other operating expenses) and distributing these to selected senators.

Cayetano, along with Senators Pia Cayetano, Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Antonio Trillanes IV, known Enrile critics in the Senate, received only P250,000 each as additional MOOE instead of the P1.6 million given to 18 other senators.

Cayetano said he is issuing this warning to Enrile’s allies in the Senate because they could suffer the same fate if they suddenly found themselves in the minority bloc.

He added that Enrile’s selective approach in the issuance of additional MOOE ran counter to his campaign slogan, “Gusto Ko, Happy Ka! (I want you to be happy!)”

“The new rule is, ‘Gusto Ko, Ako Ang Happy (I want me to be happy).’ And if he’s happy with you, you get P1.6 million,” the minority leader noted.

The more dangerous thing, he added, is that Enrile’s act of exclusion might set a precedent.

“What if Malacañang takes the cue and does the same thing to those who benefit from Palace largesse, like senators and congressmen?” Cayetano asked, recalling how, during the Arroyo administration, he and other opposition members in both chambers experienced having their perks withheld (“inipit”) for upsetting the chief executive.

Cayetano, however, pointed out that there were no indications so far that Malacañang has refused to release the Senate President’s perks (like pork barrel) just because his stand on bills certified as urgent ran counter to the administration’s position.

Enrile very publicly opposed the administration-backed sin tax bill and reproductive health (RH) measure when these were still pending in the Senate.

As this developed, Senate President Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, a known Enrile ally, called the INQUIRER to say that he would ask the four senators from the Liberal Party (LP) to come up with a position on whether Enrile indeed committed an “unconstitutional” and “unconscionable” act for converting Senate savings to MOOE, as alleged by an unidentified colleague.

This, after Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang refused to comment on the issue on behalf of Malacañang, describing it as an “internal matter.”

Estrada said he believes LP Senators Franklin Drilon, Francis Pangilinan, Ralph Recto and Teofisto Guingona III could issue a statement that reflects the position of President Aquino as they belong to the same party.

    Once I met a proud Marcos kleptocrat crony who was a logger, Enrile style.
    He explained me logging was the best way to control Peoples as it drive them starving while the live support is gone, fertile soil wash up to the sea, destroying on same time rivers and the fishing ground.

    Forest need one thousand years to produce one centimeter of fertile soil !

    Do Pilipino’s are plain stupid, not only to let this kind of criminals destroying their future for ever on that way, but to vote for them as respected leaders ?

  • joshmale2004

    Bottomline is that only Miriam Santiago has the right to speak against Enrile as she was the only one who returned the MOOE to Enrile. What we want to hear from Cayetano is, was the action of Enrile legal, ethical and moral or not?

Sana tanggalin na ang pork barrel na yan, hindi naman talaga kailangan yan (proven by Sen. Arroyo at Lacson). Ibigay nalang ang budget nayan sa edukasyon o research.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OHOD5EA75DBBUH53UKLRXRK764 Mang Teban

    This only confirms Alan Peter Cayetano is a disgrace. What he is saying is distributing “savings” is okay as long as every senator gets equal share. But, he forgot, the practice is the decision belongs to the head alone. Well, the practice itself s u c k s. But, this undeserving senator shows lack of delicadeza. If he is against the practice, he should say so and not only to insinuate that the decision maker is selective. Puro gahaman itong mga senador na ito. Tulad ni Miriam Santiago, pa-eklat din akala mo tuloy malilinis.

       Ping Lacson and Joker Arroyo never received such pork barrel, They filed a resolution in the senate but to no avail. Marami kasi ang mukhang pera una na si Jinggoy Estrada.

  • boybakal

    Enrile was just honest in giving MOOE leftovers to senators.
    Good that he disclosed the gift giving to the public.
    People ask for transparency, Enrile is transparent and honest on to whom and how he distributed the money.
    It is bad if He took home the money or Sinolo.

    Wala kayong pasuutan, seguro kaya umaangal ang mga Senador, maliit o barya lang.
    Kasi nga pork barrel, hundred million.
    Yon kay Enrile, barya barya lang.

      Nagmamaktol itong bruhong Cayetano pero si PNoy at Abad ang nagpauso niyang pangigipit ng pera. After challenging PNoy to sign his unconditional waiver, he rushed to coalesce with the LP. Kung itinuloy niya yong unang pagkontra niya kay PNoy kasama rin sana siyang umiyak gaya ni Mitos Magsaysay. Maswerte nga siya at kumpleto ang pork barrel niya, may additional pa. Sandamakmak yon samantalang itong cash gift na gakulangot lang kung ikumpara sa pork barrel niya ay nagmamaktol pa. Sugapa rin sa pera ang hitad.

    Look at this senate jester named Peter Alan Cayetano. He is not complaining about the people being raped of their hard end money.

    The problem is the constitution. Under the constitution, the senate president has the sole authority on how to divide the fund among the senators. E kung gusto nyang bigyan lang ng 250k yung iba, manigas sila. Kailangan baguhin yung constitution mismo.

    The time invested by these senators – hurting each other – is also the time they squandered for the betterment of the people.  Many bills – AMLC & FOI, etc. – are left undone. How can they unite and win the trust of the people if they can’t even agree to disagree? Let’s help them by showing the EXIT door comes election time. A few month ago someone says, “The NPA has greater chances of defeating the Philippine military than several government officials’ chances of reforming their corrupt ways.”

    The REAL message is: The money is public funds for public use. It is NOT for Senators to give/ receive, much less be treated as a Christmas bonus. The issue of Mr. Enrile being vindictive by using the money against Mr. Cayetano and Ms. Defensor-Santiago is off point and very insulting.   

  • Bansot

    Senator Jingoy Estrada, you only have to think  that nearly 1/3 of our population are living on or below the poverty lines, and there are millions of calamity victims who are still without food, medicine, shelters, and means of livelihood, and ergo you will realize that what Mr Enrile did was really “unconscionable.” Unfortunately that word only applies to people with conscience!!!

  • Philcruz

    Jinggoy’s proposal is so Jinggoy. 

    The Palace has already said it has no comments on the matter as it is a Senate internal matter.  Yet he still proposes to have a Liberal Party stand on the matter so as to drag PNoy into it.

    This dumb proposal is so like him. Enrile’s hatchetman just loves this job given him to plant and spread “intrigas”.

    • speaksoftlylove

       Yes, it’s of course dumb but you are dumber. The reason why the palace does not want to comment on this issue is that they are protecting the four Liberal senators who also mulct the people of their hard earned money in the persons of Drilon, Pangilinan, Recto and Guingona. Tanungin mo ang sarili mo kung bakit makabinging katahimikan yong apat? Sagot – dahil kuimpleto sa palamon, kuha mo na ang moral of the story ni Jinggoy?

  • Philcruz

    It used to be that no senator dared talk against Enrile.

     Things have changed. And it all started when the youngest and newest senator, Trillanes, stood up to him on the Senate floor last year.  Enrile’s star further lost its luster when he decided to write a fairy tale book on martial law.  Then he lost his battle in the RH issue. He lost against two women Zorros, Pia and Miriam, who bravely and deftly crossed swords with him on the Senate floor. His latest mis-step is this cash gifts to senators.. for which he got a drubbing from Miriam. And now this from Alan Cayetano.

    Enrile’s shining star after the Corona impeachment has dimmed and dimmed greatly and so fast. The shooting star has turned into a falling star.

    I guess you just can’t change a leopard’s spots.

    All is said against the old man and that included mine. On the other hand since the funds that was given to the all senators except the four is a  discretionary MOOE funds then we  let the Commission on Audit  check if the funds was used for intended purposes. Baka naman may pupuntahan naman yung pers at hindi lang pang office requirements at bonuses nang staff sa senado. Whee!!! Same with the house of representative who gave all the congressmen same funds od 0.5M each.OMG lahat?  More likely hindi lang si Enrile ang dapat sisihin dito but all the senators including the  four na during the happy and peaceful days at the senate ay tumangap sila nang parehong funds but a bit smaller amount said whistle blower Miriam. The senators and congressmen should be honorable enough to return the money.Kakahiya di ba? Sana mag resign ang lahat nang senador ar congressman na tumangap nang questionable funds sa senate president and speaker of the house. Lahat sila ay accoutable dahil traditional practice pala ito sa congress. Naiinis tayo sa ginawa ni De |Venecia nuon sa pag bibiggay nang 100k additional bonus sa lower house nuon. History repeated itself so inis na naman tayo. Matanda na ang lider sa senate at lower house, palitan na nang mas batang corrupt din?

    pls if you have savings, save it for the rainy days nalang, OR give it to build something for the poor people, not on the pockets or the senators. kaya sila nagaaway eh, nakakahiya naman kasi nagaaway sila sa pera.

    Like it or not someone will win this coming election. Kaya ang pakiusap ko mga kababayan, simulan na nating tingnan ang mga credentials at track records ng mga no-names or mga senatorial candidates outside of the major political parties. Sila ang iboto natin. Ipakita nating sa mga politiko na tayo ang makapangyarihan.

    Do not rationalize that voting for no-names and neophyte candidates will bring our government down or render Congress incompetent. Congress has always been incompetent and corrupt, IS incompetent and corrupt and will always be incompetent and corrupt with the current breed of TRAPOS. If the no-names win and end up being thieves anyway, what difference does it make? They would most probably steal much less because they still have to learn the ropes of corruption. By the time they become proficient with stealing, they are already almost at the end of their terms and we will vote another set of candidates. WE HAVE THE POWER OF THE VOTES WHICH IS THE MOST LETHAL POWER IN ANY POLITICAL LANDSCAPE.

    GAGARANTIYAHAN KO SA INYO. IF NOBODY AMONG THE CURRENT BREED OF TRAPOS WINS IN MAY 2013, MAGTITINO NA ANG MGA YAN DAHIL ALAM NILANG TAYO AY NAGMAMASID AT NAGBABANTAY SA MGA KILOS NILA AT HINDI TAYO BOBOTO SA MGA CORRUPT.

    Genius. Here comes one of the great minds of the senate with a brilliant idea. Senator Junggoy wants to have a statement from the LP senators that will reflect President Aquino’s position on this issue. He wants reflection. What he is doing is deflection. 

    Putting other senators on the spot, to say the least, is to add  clutter to the confused state the senate is in, not to mention his mind is in too. Why the f**k do we need that statement for? Will it right this wrong? Forget the unconstitutionality, this unconscionable act is plain thievery. 

    If he wants a statement , the statement should be: We will return the money.

    Wow, Malacanang is quiet on the issue because he is an ally. So do other senators. Normally, Guingona would be noisy about such corruption practices but tapalan lang sya tatahimik na iyan. Nasaan na si Kiko at Drilon na anti-corruption daw? P1.6M lang pala ipipikit na ang mata. Si Kiko nagiging spokesman pa ng Supreme Court. Madaldal sya pero hindi sya megasupreme spokesman. Si Drilon, baboy na nga ang itsura, baboy pa ang pagkatao. IT IS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES kapag kaalyado ka ni Pnoy. Kaya nga sabi ng Heritage Foundation, di naman daw nabago ang corruption sa PH. Hindi kasi nababayaran ang foundation kaya ganun pero ang mga senator at congressmen, pera lang ang katapat. May prinsipyo ba sina Risa Hontiveros, Ricky Carandang, Dinky Soliman, Butch Abad, etc? HYPOCRISY is the name of the game. PWE!. Pnoy should be on top of the list in the MOST HYPOCRITE LEADERS IN THE WORLD OF ALL TIME.

    In the meantime, let’s celebrate in our stupidity and self destruction as leaders are screwing us. Cheers to our bleak future. Hurray, Mr. President for screwing us big time.

    • Moany Noisy

      Sabi ni Carandang, internal matter daw iyon ng senado. Really? Kapag kalaban ang nagkakaroon ng iskandalo, malacanang (including Carandang, especially) would use all the media spin to demonize the political enemies. Pero kapag kaalyado, they will act like a PIPING SUPERMAN (i.e. will not keep quiet but save the allies with all the President’s might). Pwe to Carandang. Pwe to Pnoy.

      Again, in the meantime, let’s celebrate in our society’s stupidity and self destruction

    Cayetano, you are an aggrieved party to this issue and a senator voted to serve the country and its people but what are you doing? Political propaganda won’t raised your rating but action can. Once you took the cudgel to file action against Enrile then you’ll become a darling of the people for you’ll be looked up as an action man. Filipinos are searching for an able leader to replace Aquino come 2016, and apparently no one among the aspirants like Binay, Roxas and Escudero, can fit the shoe of Pnoy.

    Not one among the three is a doer as gleaned from their performances now, all of them are talkers but if you take the grit to oppose what Enrile had done to the people’s fund then the ladder is available for you to reach the top

  • muddygoose

    Converting savings to cash gifts = mali! Arbitrarily determining who gets the gifts = mali! I think Enrile should resign as senate president or even as senator.

    Sorry, the “message” I received is:

    That a senator can blatantly give money to other senators, call it a gift, when it came from the treasury, and this is OK?  

    That’s the only message I understood…LOUD AND CLEAR.  
    I promise all you senators, I will not vote for a single one of you.

  • reychard678

    Talking in the press Cayetano to aver that what Enrile had done to the senate’s savings is unconstitutional and unconscionable doesn’t solve the issue rather it would only provide displeasure to the people since what we want is the filing of the appropriate complaint against Enrile so that his alleged misconduct if proven to be true shall deliver him to the cell where he’s ought to languish.

    It seems that all senators are scared to lock horns with the aged Enrile, Cayetano, even the feisty Miriam is acting this moment like a clown devoid of the stance and look of a growling tigerthat she casually projects when facing an adversary. But if you can deliver the coup de grace then how happy the Filipinos will be. You’ll be adored and be revered for you’ve accomplished what your peers are scared to do. You can also become a hero not in the class of Ninoy but at least you’re there in every Filipino’s heart and mind.

    • janglegirl

      Politicians do that all the time. They use the nation’s coffer as if its their own money, and at this time when the people of Mindanao has just gone through the worst devastation from Pablo.  The president is also selective in releasing the pork barrel to his allies and extending priority assistance to storm-hit places where the mayor or governor is from his political party. In the end, its always the people who suffer from the misuse and mismanagement of public funds. 

  • AlexanderAmproz

    Philippines is a multi layers fake Christian Democratic, a deadly poisonous cake for the Population and Mother Nature(almost already dead)

    —–On the top you have king’s, the Plutocrats

    The Cojuangco’s, Consunji, Enrile’s, Licio Tan, the Sy’s, and some others,
    all of them are Chinese and Killer Thieves.
    This is the fattest layer.

    —–The second layer is

    The Senate, Congress and Clergy

    —–The third are a mix up of high Officials

    The General’s of PNP and AFP, the head of any administrations

    —–The fourth, Governors, Mayors and Politicians

    —–The fifth Businessmen’s

    Almost all of them are Chinoy’s

    The ultra thin University Educated Meddle Class is the spices and sugar,
    Doctors, Architect’s, Scientist’s, Teachers, Lawyer’s, Journalist’s, etc. mostly Chinoy’s

    This is maybe 2% of the population, half of them are INQUIRER readers

    The Population is the uneducated flour to grind and bought voters under control

    The US is the kitchen Chief Cook !

    Religion and Democracy are an artificial toxic chemical to keep the cake fresh longer.
    Real healthy Democracy existing, but hard to get, expensive and never allowed.

    The first one who will not play the game is immediately eliminated on an atrocious way to impress the Gullible and some others.

    Sooner or later every-things will be self destroyed with the disappearance of life support, Mother Nature.
    Then only mining, the Plutocrat’s and minions with few slaves workers will left, that why the supposed “Elites” stashing the money abroad.

    United Nations Organizations could help to get out of that, but it is under US control.
    US will move only if its good for them while needing it, but if the Plutocrat’s and mining staying under their control, its still OK for them.

    Internet informations diffusion and access to knowledge on a wide scale could help to improve the situation for a less darker Future…

    Today the easiest solution to escape and help is to be establish outside the Country for international politics lobbying, in the US is the best for that, and support the left behind family, friends and activists who are today tag as rebells, communist, criminals and what ever to discredit them.

    Still believed P-Noy is a Patriot Captain of the sinking boat.
    To support him is a good solution as no others showing up at the moment.

    Sad to know The Philippines was one of the World best Paradise before Magellan,
    inhabited by lovely innocent peoples, have no doubts about it, as Mother Nature providing all the needs, no need to fight to survived as it was in Bali, Hawaii, Tahiti, etc. All of them where known as paradise at the time they where discovered by Westerners. The population of those wonderful places used to be have an Austro-Melanesian origins, as well in the Philippines and South-East Asia, Aetas and Manobo’s excepted.

    A FORMER whistleblower in high-profile graft corruption controversies turned-head of government’s financial watchdog yesterday linked the wife of Vice President Jejomar Binay, an incumbent and several former Makati City officials to alleged deception in the public bidding for a Php72.06 million supply contract awarded by the city government in 2001.

    Parepareho lang si Enrile at si Butch Abad at ang amo niya….masama loob ni Cayetano di naambunan ng malaking pera….

  • manangjuana

    This is a standard practice in Congress.  Okay, fine.  But a practice isn’t always moral, isn’t it.  If the SP and Speaker have consciences, how about NOT distributing their discretionary fund to their lawmakers and instead transfer them back to the country’s coffers.  Papalakpak pa ako if this happens.  Boo them!

    Maliit na halaga ang perang dito. Kung hindi natin tinatanggap ang pamumulitika ni Enrile at sa paraan ng pamahagi ng MOOES sa mga kasamahang niyang mga senador,

    ipahayag natin ang disapproval natin sa darating na halalan sa Mayo, 2013..

    Tatakbo po na senador si JACKIE ENRILE JUNIOR, ANAK NI SENATE PRESIDENT JUAN PONCE ENRILE SENIOR.

    Bihira sa atin ang hindi nakakakilalala sa mag-amang ito at kung anong klase ng pagkatao meron sila.

    Sa halalan ng 2013, boboto po tayong lahat nang buong talino at ilaglag ang mga buhong at masasamang kandidato.

         Tama ang sinabi mo pero kung tatanggapin natin ang masamang kinagisnang ugali na ito ay talo na tayo . Mahalaga ay umpisahan natin sa ating sarile ang pagbabagong gusto natin. Tandaan natin ang tagumpay na maraming revolution sa mundong ito ay karaniwang sinisimulan ng isang tao lang. Isang hambawa ay si Andres Bonifacio ng KKKK.

    Enrile is definitely guilty on this one for being selective instead of equality among them. Bad and an becoming trait as a senator and as a senate president! You should tender your resignation now to save the institution and to redeem the bad image you created!

    Even Manong Johnny gave P1.6m equally to all Senators,the Pamasko move is still not justified,even they say it’s their savings.Dahil pera yan galing sa mga taxpayers na Pilipino.
    18×1.6m=can feed 28 800 families if given P1000/family sa typhoon victims ng Pablo.Actually kulang pa yun.At least napangiti niyo mga tao dun.

    • $22369910

      this.

      what’s worse is that legislators should never ever have control over the actual disbursement (ie pork barrel) of funds as it runs counter to their purpose- creating (good) laws. sure, the constitution allows for congress to set tax rates and craft tax laws but it’s quite absurd that they actually have a hand in distributing what the state gets. it only perpetuates the patronage system to the detriment of the platforms- “ah si congressman? i don’t know what he stands for, but he gave out rice and canned goods during christmas.” then of course, these idiots will then vote for the same guy and complain again when it all goes to hell. and on and on…

      The Legislature (Senators & Congressmen) have 
      no business handling and disposing funds of the Country. 

      Their only duty is to submit & approve Bills that may/will turn into Law.
      These lawmakers are usurping the functions of the Executive Branch.

      WHAT Happened to the “CHECK & BALANCE” in our Constitution.
      Ditto, also, for the “Anti-Dynasty” Provision of the Constitution.

    In other words, Alan Peter will say “Amen” to whatever Enrile
    does, whatever Enrile wants, Enrile gets?

    What kind of young totoy na totoy senator is this? Just
    another big mistake of Pinoy voters.

    sana naman kung meron, kung meron lang namang delikadesa itong mga nabigyan ay ibalik na sa national treasury ang ibinigay ni enrile o di kaya ibigay sa mga probinsyang naganagailangan ng pagpapagawa ng mga classrooms na sinira ng mga kalamidad, kasi bakit itong mga hindi nabigyan ang pumuputak lang, MAHIYA NAMAN KAYO.
