Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. File photo

In a wide-ranging interview with radio station dzBB Sunday, Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago accused Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile of plunder and challenged him to explain his role as martial law administrator in the disappearances of opponents of the Ferdinand Marcos regime.

Santiago also took Enrile to task for allegedly funding coup attempts against President Corazon Aquino after the ouster of Marcos in the 1986 Edsa People Power Revolution.

The feisty former judge was continuing a word war that followed revelations of alleged improprieties in Enrile’s distribution of savings from the Senate’s operating expenses as Christmas gift of P1.6 million to each of 18 “nice” senators and P250,000 to their four “naughty” colleagues.

The Commission on Audit has said that Enrile’s action was aboveboard and provided for under the General Appropriations Act.

Santiago, who got the lower amount and returned it to Enrile, said the Senate President “profited” as defense minister during the martial law years, using the term “namunini.” She said this word meant that Enrile “profited, he enjoyed himself, he was master of the universe during martial law.”

She said Enrile must now answer for his role in that dark side of Philippine history. She added that Enrile “should now answer for the crime of plunder. Why is he that wealthy? He should answer for the crime of causing what the Spanish call ‘desaparecidos’ … He should be held accountable for that.”

The radio station later interviewed Enrile for his reaction to Santiago’s statements. Enrile said he was investigated by the Corazon Aquino administration, but no plunder charges were ever brought against him.

“I will probably not reply to what she had said. We will just let the public decide who is right,” Enrile told dzBB.

Pressed about the plunder charge, he said that whatever wealth he had was a result of his private law practice before he joined the government, which he added could not be true of Santiago, whose income was derived from the government service.

Godfather

Enrile said Santiago herself has some explaining to do. He pointed out that Santiago had worked for the late Ambassador Kokoy Romualdez, brother of former First Lady Imelda Marcos. The Marcoses have been accused of having amassed ill-gotten wealth while in power.

The Senate President also dismissed Santiago’s claims that he harbored a grudge against her for not supporting him even though he stood as a godfather during her wedding. He said this had nothing to do with the issues she had raised.

In the radio interview, Santiago accused Enrile of harboring a personal agenda when he played a role in Marcos’ ouster in February 1986. “He wanted to get rid of Marcos because he was hoping that he would replace him. But the public wanted Cory Aquino.”

Santiago said Enrile financed coup attempts against Corazon Aquino and that this was why she fired him as her defense secretary. He said Enrile was turning 89 years old in February and was still in power, profiting from his position as Senate President.

Santiago also referred to the controversy surrounding the supposed ambush of Enrile on the night Marcos declared martial law in 1972. Upon the ouster of Marcos, Enrile in a news conference revealed that the ambush was staged to justify the imposition of the emergency, but in his book released last year, he said that the incident indeed happened and was not faked.

Question of credibility

Santiago reminded Enrile that the Supreme Court considered a retraction “more credible than the original testimony” because it accommodated the possibility that the witness could have been tortured or confused when he gave his first story.

However, she also noted that the tribunal regarded “a person who makes a retraction of the reaction [as] absolutely incredible … What kind of person is he?”

Enrile said investigations showed that he had not stolen from the government.

He referred to accusations that he benefited from the coconut levy imposed during the martial law years. He said that the levy resulted in the collection of P9.6 billion of which the government spent P7.1 billion and another P2.5 billion was invested by him and businessman Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco.

He said this investment expanded and reached P130 billion and was now the object of so much controversy, referring to returns from shares of stock of San Miguel Corp.

“I’m not saying this so I will look handsome in the eyes of the people, but that is the truth. I don’t want to reply to this. But this issue keeps coming back … I don’t want this to get out of hand.”

Enrile said Santiago “as a brilliant lawyer seeking a new career in the International Criminal Court” should instead charge him before the global juridical body or the Office of the Ombudsman if she believed he was guilty.

Santiago said in an earlier interview she would not spearhead any move to have Enrile investigated so as not to “sink to the level of the vulgar.”

    Kahit sinabi ng COA ok lang ginawa ni Enrile, sa akin e hindi tama na ipamudmud sa mga senators yung savings. Mas ok pa sana na binigyan pansin yung kahirapan ng mga nabagyo sa Mindanao kaso mga sarili ang inuna. E di lumabas yung talagang kulay ng mga ito.

  • http://enria.org/ scconcern

    Enrile should still be charge since he is public servant for life. He can not practice as private lawyer. This is violation of conflict of interest. In Canada, a politician with business is obligated to detached from his business, by putting his interest in a blind trust.
    Even with private practice, he can not amasse such wealth to level of with ayala, zobel o cojuangco (? luna war chest from Ongsiaco), combined.
    Mirriam has a point to charge him of plunder and crimes brought by Martial Law. There is no statute of limitation for the above crimes.
    Suggestion if she get to ICC, she file the case there, Pinoy justice is elitist and dysfunctional. Only the plutocrats get justice.

  • Benito Juarez

    Garrulous Miriam vs clever Enrile. Miriam’s words have become thorns in Enrile’s heart (sorry heart, Enrile has none.) So, Enrile only hear what he wants to hear and believe what he wants to believe. Behind a treacherous facade lies a tricky, clever Enrile. Watch out Miriam, quick-witted Enrile can also be carried away. These grown ups have lots of secrets in their closets. Juan dela Cruz, did you hire these senators to trade cheap shots? See now, these politicians dig the dirt of their enemies, even if they have to dig their ancestors’ grieves for personal gain.

  • efriend

    Enrile is very powerful.  Nobody crosses his path.  Not even Fidel Ramos.  Not even Cory.  Thank you Miriam for putting this man in his place.  Too bad, now on his final years of his career, he goes down with a very bad record in PHL history.

    Kudos to Sen Santiago. Time to bring in your big guns to attack this long time cancerous mole Mr Enrile. SEn Santiago must muster all her intelligence and panache to bring to justice this devil Mr Enrile (a wolf hiding in a sheep’s barnyard) before the Pino Nation and ultimately when she sits at the International Court Tribunal at the Hague. Since Mr Enrile’s actions in the past constituted a wide range of dark orders to implement martial law and Marcos’ idea of Ilocandio Superiority with US backings , then it corrresponded to human right abuses and violation of human rights. 

    Sen Miriam , who is an Ilonggo and Bisaya , must challenge the Pino Nation to bring Enrile into the light from his dark past.  Syaro naman ang daming mga biktima dyan noong panahon, lalabas na kayo lahat at mag te testify to prosecute Enrile. The Pino Nation can only move forward if it deals with the past and have closure of the crimes committed during Marcos time of which old fxrt Enrile played the right hand implementor. 2013 seems to be the end of his days in govt.

    Time to posas the man is now ! . Also Sen Trillanes can take over the Senate and sway this govt to a new beginning.  Erase the vestiges of the past and corrupt Ilocandio Tagalegleg monopoly and oligarchy since 1946 !  The Pino Nation is not a republic but rightfully called the Republic of Luzon, as all top leaders hailed from the northern tribes. WHille Visayas and Mindanao are marginalized and misrepresented since the founding of this republic.

    I heard the DZBB interviews late Sunday morning from beginning to end hosted by Nimfa Ravello. It was not really so much an interview as it is a set up to bait Senator Santiago to talk more with the radio talkshow host egging her for more. Miriam was followed by Lacson and then Enrile on the air, separately and successively. After Miriam, Lacson and Enrile took turns attacking the gentle lady from Iloilo. Whenever Lacson and Enrile forgot certain points, the host Nimfa Ravello made sure to ask them leading questions with coaxing fillers of “tama kayo” and “oo nga”. It was an interview both Lacson and Enrile enjoyed with the help of media (I hope GMA7 news & public affairs chief reviews the interview). Lacson, in many words, particularly resented Miriam for making the senators look bad. Making the senators look bad was the heart of Lacson’s discontent. The former police chief even challenged the squealing senator to lead by example, otherwise the other 22 senators need not rise to the challenge of transparency. For some strange reason, the DZBB radio host agreed entirely with that statement. As for Enrile, we all know his place in history.

    Bottom line is, this is clearly an attempt to bully Senator Santiago into silence. For evil to triumph, all it takes is for good men to do nothing. For corruption to be exposed, all it took was for one courageous woman like Miriam to speak out. The ball is now in the hands of the lesser men in the senate. Will they rise to the occasion or are they all spineless and impotent?

    • $18209031

      Yan si Lacson ay tuta rin yan sa dating Phil Constabulary pinagpanguluhan ni Gen Ramos. They were the spear implementing Martial Law . Phil Constabulary a paramilitary police force wearing combat uniforms and M16s  . They were military but carried police actions and duties. They were more powerful than the actual Phil Army who are confined in the boondooks and fighting hardcore rebels but have no police action. Basta nasa police , may pera as you deal in capturing drugs and crimes and civilians . THe loots are yours to keep and mga permits sa logging , checkpoints, etc

    Nasa likod mo kami Miriam-Go, go, go…I am one of those who hated you before, but this time, kakampi mo ako.

    Miriam, refute the revised history written by this old, wily, black rabbit in his memoir or a self-serving bio-data. We all know that the “facts” written by this old, wily, black rabbit are not “facts” but li//es intended to change history, deodorize his legacy, and to help the candidacy of a bully named jack and only the likes of loyal dogs like a honasan would believe for a loyal dog like a honasan was part of those li//es.No one can change history. It is already written and can’t be unwritten by a simple memoir or bio-data.

    So many died, tortured, disappeared during ML and as everyone knows, the bloods of those victims were on the hand of this old, wily black rabbit. Those are facts already known all-over the world.  

    And when this black rabbit chea/t//ed cory, turned trai/tor to his mentor, godfather and sponsor, financed and led coups against Cory, and initialized and institutionalized “dagdag-bawas”, all the more showed the $viciou//sness and $sava//geness of this black rabbit.

    I like what I am seeing. Through the years, we live in the shadows of li/es of the black rabbit and for the first time, a senator privy and a key player to what happened in our history is coming out to expose the li//es  and the reasons behind those li//es.

    What is happening now is just the beginning. Miriam is going to be the game changer. The culminations of these events are the rejection of a son in the coming election, the crumbling of UNA and the downfall of an old, wily, black rabbit. 

    Time to “un-write” the wrong written in a memoir or self-serving bio-data and the feisty Miriam is the most credible person to do it.

    • arthur1410

      I wonder, what is the agenda of Ping Lacson, what he is up to? Why is he making sawsaw in this issue? Why is he defending enrile? Is it because he he had bloods in his hands in the implementation of ML?
      Ping, shut up. You have enough of your own misadventure. allow Miriam to do what the people wanted her to do, that is, to expose all the skeleton in Enrile’s closet. Wag ka ng makialam.

        Ping Lacson played an important part in the rounding up of the opposition during the implementation of Martial Law as member of batch 1971 of the PMA together with members of batches 1968 to 1970 save for Corpus, Tagamolila and few others.They are the graduates of that institution that Marcos Martial Law foisted upon the Filipino people, adeptly handled by JPE as the Martial Law administrator. Most members who have come from humble beginnings are now filthy rich and still wielding power over the powerless together with JPE. Members of these batches are the most politicized graduates of the said institution whose fealty and loyalty were to their politician and businessmen backers and mentors and not to the Philippine Republic they only play lip service to cover their real intentions, hunger for unabated power and greed for riches for themselves and their families even for their extended ones. Plutocracy and oligarchy fueled by violence or kleptocracy.

      Senator and Professor Miriam Defensor-Santiago has raised many valid points that some old sages in politics would rather stay mum about. Senator Enrile is well-known in Philippine history as a notorious Marcos crony, martial law chief architect, and an ambitious power grabber during the time of Dictator Marcos’ ouster and before and after the eventual victory of the late President Cory Aquino. Old folks find it shocking that the oldest and most influential traditional politician is still in power as Senate President. For whatever it’s worth, I hope that this “expose” will improve politics and make our current batch of politicians more mature.

      Kudos to Senator Miriam. Mabuhay po kayo!

    “whatever wealth I have was a result of my private law practice before I joined the government…”

    I believe the IMPEACHED chief Justice Corona also said the same thing when asked about all his accumulated millions of dollars. Maybe JPE also did some dollar investing when he was younger and the exchange is 50 centavos to a dollar. (do i sound sarcastic?) JPE better watch what he’s saying, he can be “PLAGIARIZED” by stealing CORONA’s line. Tito Sotto has indeed learned alot from being JPE’s protegee. In any case, such ridiculous action by a senator of a republic deserves no less than his resignation from office with a corresponding criminal/civil liability… hes already lost the public’s trust and confidence. Aren’t those the very grounds why they impeached Corona in the first place?

    Two geriatric senators trade barbs and underwear; they appear to have no shame anymore. Both are graduates of old UP, and that’s what they got for having had a cheap education- NO SHAME. One is a proud Ilongga, and the other is just as proud, an Ilocano; only money can patch the deuced two together. No one is pressing charges against each other but they seriously smear each other. It must be election time again in this forgotten country. And the people just love seeing what they see, and hearing what they hear.  Meanwhile, the man at the Palace rubs both his hands with lotion, and is having ecstatic convulsion. The people don’t have a clue of what’s going on and heck, why should they care anyway! hehehehe

    maybe we should put senatong enrile on trial by publicity the way he did to former sc justice corona.whatever method they employed to corona should also be introduced as evidence to his plunder during and after martial law.he was one of the best recipient of not being on trial because of his association with the RAM boys.until now at 89 yrs no charges have been imputed on him because everyone is scared the way they were scared of ping lacson.put him on trial in public view to be fair with others

    Thank god, finally someone had the balls to confront Enrile of his “dark” past during the Marcos regime and ironically it had to be Santiago. We all know he was instrumental in the ouster of the strongman and unfortunately, the people had accepted this as Enrile’s act of contrition. But a new generation of filipinos has come and eager to know what really was his role in the disappearance of so many of the regime’s opponets or how many of these orders did he sign off? How many did he authorize for torture or worst execution?
    I know it would be wishful thinking to have Enrile address these inquiries. Knowing his record he’ll take all the facts surrounding his controversial life with him to his grave and deny the people the truth. 

    • RHumabon

      “Knowing his record he’ll take all the facts surrounding his controversial life with him to his grave and deny the people the truth.”

      I disagree. No one can suppress the TRUTH. It’s just a question as to when it will surface.  Will it come out before or after one’s demise?

      One of the worst, if not the worst case yet to be prosecuted and if found guilty, meted out a just punishment – is the seven (7) failed coup attempts during Pres. Cory Aquino’s term. Billions upon Billions of Pesos were lost in the economy. Lives were also lost. Most noteworthy was a loyalist soldier, in the fog of firefight,  shot & killed his own brother, a soldier who was one of the mutineers. . .Another thing to note is the irony among ironies of the several attempts to overthrow the government – the dependants of jailed mutineers did not go to the leaders of the coup for their subsistence. They obtained support they requested from the object of the mutineers assassination: Pres. Cory Aquino.

      Had one of the seven coups succeeded, the Philippines today could still be under a Military Junta with some civilian leadership.

      It’s only fair & just to bring to justice those responsible for the coups of the 1990’s.

        May karanasan ka bang maki pag enkuentro sa mga cattle rustlers that roam in the provinces of Iloilo, Antique, Capiz, and Aklan?
        May karanasan ka bang maki pag barilan sa mga warlord sa Mindanao?

        How do I know that Inday Mirriam is the great grandniece of the lady heroine, Teresita MAGBANUA?

        If you have ample intelligence, you can easily make a deduction why I call the “Joan of Arc” of the Visayas, as Nanay Isa.

    “she would not spearhead any move to have Enrile investigated so as not to “sink to the level of the vulgar.”” ~Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago

    Why not initiates an investigation?

    You have a duty to pursue the truth. Negating it makes you a conspirator too!! Santiago groupies are all ecstatic. And vehemently missed the hidden design. That the big fuss are nothing but a fuzzy allegations.

    4x coup attempt against Cory

    Juan Ponce Enrile charged with involvement in the bloody military rebellion on  Aug 28,1987  that left at least nine people dead.

    • ThudOthwacker

      Actually the coup was Ramos idea. To make Cory toe the line. Why did Cory picked Ramos over Mitra? Despite the agreement of respecting party nomination.

      What is the first thing Ramos did after winning the presidency? Pardon Gringo Honasan.

      • batangpaslit

        not exactly a precise story
        patapos na ang term in Pres Cory when Ramos formed a new political party.
        Ramos was not personally handpicked by Pres Cory

      • speaksoftlylove

        Ramos was personally handpicked by Cory because I know it based on personal knowledge. I was then a legal officer of a congressman who incidentally was the kingpin for the entire LDP faction in Mindanao. LDP was the late Mitra’s party. My boss was a faithful disciple of Cory. When the convention which was designed to elect the official presidential candidate that will be backed by Cory ended, Mitra was overwhelmingly elected as the official candidate. But Cory preferred Ramos so Ramos organized his own party and my boss was an original member of Ramos’ party. He was able to convinced the LDPs in Mindanao thus Ramos garnered enough votes to win the presidential election at the expense of the grieving Santiago. The rest is history. I have worked in the House of Representatives for almost ten years and at the same time studied law. I’ve watched how the hard earned taxpayers money are wasted and went straight to politician’s pockets of Congress. Those top reporters in the main stream media always received dole outs after every interview. It was my job to hand them either check or cash after each interview so they know me. There are no exceptions, all are corrupt including my former boss.

    Santiago has made her point about the supposed Enrile’s Christmas gift. But she must substantiate her accusation by filing a case against him in court else she would be accused of nothing but just a character assassination. The commission on audit has already cleared Enrile and as quoted in the article,  ” The Commission on Audit has said that Enrile’s action was aboveboard and provided for under the General Appropriations Act.” As far as his Martial Law sins I guess kinalimutan na ito nang mga Filipino at ibinoto pa siya sa senate several times. Kung yumaman man si Enrile ito ay dahil sa political position niya at tama naman si Miriam but sino ba naman ang politikong naghirap lalo na at maraming beses nang nanging senador or congressman. Sino ba ang politiko na di yumaman sa position. Even PNoy know how to be become more richer as a politician. Hindo porke Cojuangco si Noy na mayaman siya. Check on his SALN biglang lumaki ang yaman niya na di proportionate sa sahod niya as senator and as president. Dahil sa mana kay Cory? Oh well that’s a fiction, di ganon kayaman si Cory, tanong nyo kay Peping. Again Miriam is ending her term in the senate and no longer eligible to run in 2013. Unless di nag kakaso si Miriam sa mga paratang niya sa matandang Enrile, I would just accused her of peddling hearsay’s. Tanong ko lang kay Miriam, if Enrile’s action about the so called Christmas gift in form of MOOE ay mali bakit wala akong naririning sa mga 16 na senador lalo na sa kaalyado ni PNoy. Pork Drillon, Mega Koko Pangilinan, Koko Pimentel at Guingona.

Did I not start living in a rented apartment when I was just a mere judge but then accumulated millions of moolah when I started to enter politics? Santiago went to the extent of teaching Enrile about presumptions of law. Yet, she forgot some basic presumptions that “When you go to the court to ask remedies, you have to come clean otherwise the court will leave you as you are.” Have you heard of the latin maxim, “in pare delicto” Mirriam?

  • Opinyon_ni_Juan

    The debate about the appropriateness of issuing unspent money of government agencies as bonus to employees (aka MOOE) at the end of the year is continually sidetracked by the character assassinations between Senators Enrile and Santiago.  While their accusations against each other merits serious attention, this should not be highlighted in the current debate.  The real issue is whether Enrile’s actions are illegal or not.  The news article says that the Commission on Audit had already made a determination that Enrile’s actions were above-board. Can this determination be challenged in the courts.  I believe this practice should be openly questioned in the court.  The court will then make a ruling to make this practice criminal, not only for Enrile, but for all other government agencies.  Until then, Enrile and other government agencies will resort to this practice every end of the year, much to the dismay of the public, but still back to the status quo.

    I strongly suggest to the Inquirer editors and newswriters to stick to the real issue. Lessen the emphasis on the verbal attacks. It is a good entertainment but it will not achieve any real reform.  

    • manual47

      You are right…..Juan.  it will not achieve any real reform.  But then, someone has to start or initiate on something to achieve that reform.  And that is what lacking with filipinos.   However, if you read all the comments posted since the ousted of Corona, filipinos sounds fed up.  Who knows, it may be the spark that is needed to start the action in achieving that reform.   I am sure if someone start this action, caring filipinos will come and do something…….

        Indeed, I wish there is a cause oriented group that will bring this matter to the court. Nothing will come out of this expose’ if, after all the news coverage, the real issue is not discussed. The issue is: can heads of government agencies use the unspent budget of their agencies in a fiscal year for the personal benefits of their employees? I believe this is not legal, aside from being unethical and immoral. This issue is faced by all head of agencies in the Philippines. Enrile made it simply worse by playing favorites in the distribution of the bonuses.

        That is why, I hope the Inquirer will steer back to the real issue.

    • ARIKUTIK

      Do you really longed for something to be challenge in the court ? That MOOE bonus is only worth 20 + million. Chicken feed in terms of govt. expenses. The yearly CCT fund of Penoy is 30 + BIllion given out as CASH for the monkeys in mountain tops. Now, is it legal to give away DIRECT CASH ? That is a sure reciepe for corruption. The USA helps the poor through Food Stamp NOT direct cash. The Indian government helps the poor through Coupon Subsidy NOT cash. Only real poor will use Charity Coupons that can only be exchange for basic needs. It can never be deposited into secret bank accounts nor a rich creature will ever dare walking around with coupons. Lets take a look in PH > Penoy CCT charity fund is given out in the form of CASH which can easily be deposited in secret bank accounts and cash can be use even by a super rich creature. CCT direct CASH givde away is the greatest corruption ever cooked up And only practiced by corrupt PH government. Direct CASH give away is the main reason why Boy AB loves so much CCT BILLIONS FUND. Challenge that in court “WHY DIRECT CASH in giving away BILLIONS of CCT fund”.

        cash for monkeys in mountain tops?   Medyo masakit sa tenga ang dating nito lalo na kung dito ka nakatira sa mindanao at sa mga bondok nga namamalagi.  Think about it… ang LRT / MRT ay subsidized ng national government para sa mga urbanites like you. Kami dito wala. Bakit cash? kasi ang mga “monkeys in mountain tops” di marunong ng food stamp, checks, ATM etc. Kaya cash. Any spending by the government helps the economy. Kaya this CCT is one of the drivers of the economy in Mindanao. For many many years ang Imperial Manila lang ang nakikinabang sa largesse ng gobyerno. Kaming mahihirap dito sa mindanao ay naghihintay kung kailan kami mabibiyayaan. It is a big help. Bantayan lang talaga na hindi nabubulsa ng mga kurakot. 

      • Opinyon_ni_Juan

        I believe, the practice of distributing unspent agency budget at the end of the year is a legal issue that can be resolved by the courts. Without being challenged in the Courts, there will be no government body that will declare that this practice is illegal.

        You are also correct about the CCT. It is also subject to corruption. It could also be challenged in the courts. It doesn’t mean however that challenging Enrile’s practice in courts will make the CCT legitimate. Both can be reviewed.

    The 2013 election campaign Philippine style has officially started with a bang!  It was a perfectly top drawer curtain raiser never before seen and heard between a godfather and goddaughter hurling accusations so intense and hatred so bitter against each other on issues taken for granted in years.  The timing is a suspect but has some validity only because no one has ever had the moral courage to raise it up in the halls of Congress, no one to stand out and investigate the Martial Law players as well as the raids on the national coffers via pork barrels and entitlements.  Their reluctance and cowardice turned them into a feebling that placed them now under moral estoppel.  The public is most convinced than ever before that the institution which they so deeply respect then is now bereft of any moral and ethical.standard and was already transformed into a private enterprise. 

    Today’s election campaign will just be a zarzuela scripted for reruns fitted at the now closed “Manila Grand Opera House” or better still at TV talk shows hosted by either Tito, Vic, and Joey, or Vice Ganda.

    Enrile has no shame at all ! It reminds me of the NO SHAME Marcos family, these people robbed the country’s future which until today our beloved country pays for it. Before they took power, the Philippines was number two and seen by many asian countries as a role model. After they were removed from power the country was deyond repair for the damaged they’ve done,Ferdinand Marcos and his cronies left the country and it’s people $30 billion external debt. Many analysts believes that the marcosses pocketed a third of that money. SADLY, the culture of corruptions continues even after we removed Ferdinand Marcos from power. TRAGIC ! The filipino people accepted this kind of desease by electing corrupt,useless leaders every elections.WORST ! we became our own enemy, our bad habits and set of minds continue to put our country at the rock bottom amongs asian countries. I’m just wondering what our founding fathers are saying up above looking at us,  the way we became as a nation

    • Touch_Me_, Nuts!

      And who were your founding fathers? Had someone of them really put up a nation? They were all a bunch of losers, and it was the foreigners who put up a decrepit nation for us from the start.

  • cogito728sum

    Manong Johnny is really full of double talk.  While his remark the other day  of someone hardly passing the bar exam was an insinuation to Miriam, now he’s refering to her as a “brilliant lawyer.”  This is a take two of his ambivalence in his true role in his ambush igniting martial law.  Indeed, its very difficult to trust the words of some politicians, especially the Enrile type.  And inspite her irascibility and grandstanding in the Corona impeachment, Miriam is now closer to the sympathy of the people more than Manong Johnny if only for his being so generous of the people’s money.

    Whatever the true caliber of Miriam as a lawyer, she’s indeed praiseworthy for standing her ground against a man intoxicated by fleeting popularity.  A man who will carry till the end an unextracted thorn in his side inflicting unbearable personal pain for being beaten to the presidency by a non-politician.  Ah, the vagaries of fate indeed!  Merci!

      Yes indeed, your penultimate sentence says it all, as I posted earlier poor Mr Enrile was ‘always a bridesmaid but never the bride’, never hooked the golden ring, never became the ‘head honcho’ the ‘big cheese’ ‘el numero uno’, the BIG guy etc- and now in his frail dotage must dream of things that could have been, but never came to pass. Yes ’merci’ or in my words, thank God, on my bended knees every day it never did…..

  • Emilio

    You gotta hand it to enrile . Before this senate gift scandal, this old man was in Cebu advising the old lady governor garcia to defy the suspension order of the dilg. So the governor , because of the support and bad advise, got bolder, and organized a prayer rally for her support. She used the govt buses to fetch the health workers in the different municipalities to go to the Capitol, under the guise to fetch their Xmas bonuses. She gave them meals, accomodation in a hotel, and allowance, money coming from the taxpayers. The municipal mayors granted time off with pay for those who attended the rally, also money coming from the taxpayers.
    Now the governor is in big trouble because of this illegal practice, and enrile and company is keeping silent about it. They should visit the governor and show support that they are in favor of her doing illegal acts. Anyway everyone’s a crook, in one way or another.

    Also, do not forget the rape of the forests of the Philippines… they were involved in the logging business… who can stop them during the Martial Law years from raping the forests? Now, their defense will be “Our involvement in the logging business before was legitimate. Nothing was illegal” pero halos kinalbo nila ang kagubatan. Maraming mga Marcos cronies ang lalong yumaman dahil sa logging industry noong panahon ng diktadura ni Marcos.

    • $40855351

      Tutuo yan, I have first hand information of a general during the Marcos regime who enrich his family thru a logging business based in Canlubang, Laguna, despite the fact that logging was illegal during that time.

    • buttones

      No we will not forget, in fact ALL the logging licenses during the time of Marcos were handed out to his cronies, his apparatchiks, loyal unquestioning servants of Marcos, and there was nobody more loyal to Marcos than Enrile -[apart from old Imelda- goes without saying….]

    Only Miriam Defensor-Santiago has the balls among the senators to accuse Juan Ponce Enrile about his supposed crimes. I admire her for her bravery and brilliance. It’s about time someone stood up to Enrile’s apparent political invincibility and challenged his claims as an honest guy during the dark years of the Marcos era.

  • rjimenez1226

    How can the  Filipino people allow this guy Enrile to roam free after all the  sins he committed against the  people? He should be arrested for his  role as  martial law administrator and  also have civil and crimnal liabilities after his particpation in the disappearance of  hundreds of Filipinos during the martial law regime. Justice has been delayed too long againts this evil  and arrogant warlord.

    3) How was he able to continue his logging business despite the log ban?
    4) How much he profited in the illegal activities in the Cagayan Freeport?
    5) As defense minister during the Marcos era, what was his participation in the disappearances of individuals?

    • Touch_Me_, Nuts!

      I think you ask too many questions, and I don’t think you’re even ready to take and handle the true answers.  It will do us good as a matter of practice to process each question one step at a time to avoid messing up the pot. hehehe As it is, the only son of Benigno Aquino Jr. cannot even figure out who slaughtered his father, and yet he’s got the whole army in his arsenal.  The widow president whose term was too close to the incident did not flourish finding out the elusive answer either. And yet there are too many theories and alleged conspiracies that are going around from the bleachers three decades later. hehehe The thing is, Filipinos love to ask too many questions – which generally is fine- but we do not know how to handle valuable information and much less protect the source of the information.  Soon even a credible source will hesitate to provide the missing valuable information.  I tend to think that as a people we tend to over-analyze situations but unfortunately either we stop there or come up with an even more convoluted conclusion. In short, many of us- at all levels- have a very undisciplined mind that no one can trust, and sometimes even ourselves cannot be trusted either. It hurts to face it, doesn’t it? Now, the same is true with your too many questions. I’m just sorry to say….(now hit me on the face). hehehe

    To non-lawyers, Brenda is brilliant.  But to those who studied law (not necessarily lawyers), what she says which has relation to law is just an ordinary passage/article/jurisprudence.

    I also do not like Enrile.   I’d heard that interview of him when he confessed of the staged ambush which he is now saying as a real ambush.  That’s personal knowledge on my part.  It’s just sad that the one who challenge Enrile has no credibility.  Brenda.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      so you just bend forward and get shafted everytime?

  • Atawid

    Probably during the height of EDSA 1, Enrile bargained with Cory administration that no charges whatsoever will be filed against him if he (Enrile) can oust FM. Proof is the admission of Enrile on national TV at the height of EDSA 1 that he (Enrile) mastered the dagdag bawas in favor of FM. Wonder of all wonders, a first account confession of election cheating and yet Cory admin did not even bother to file charges (kahit man lang pitik sa tainga wala). I think Miriam is correct to say that Enrile funded the coup (Enrile’s God Save the Queen coup plot) against Cory because Enrile did not even bother to help Cory when the Palace was attacked instead he just played golf. Great plot planner

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/T6LZKWWWOJTNBOOZJVX4FLC5MA Marcela

      The rumor at that time why Enrile and his RAMbutan boys tried to destabilized Cory’s gov’t was that they want 50-50 share on the gov’t. They want 50% military controlled, thru them of course, and 50% civilian headed by Cory, but Cory opted for complete civilian control. I guess from the very beginning, Enrile was power hungry. He resented on Fabian Ver being too powerful and likewise on Imelda Marcos for being the same especially during the last years of Ferdinand Marcos where majority in the gov’t knows that it was Imelda who was calling the shot, so to speak, at that time. 

      • Atawid

        Maybe we can ask Binay or Sen Arroyo, these were the “bulong brigade” and advisers of Cory. But for sure, lumabas na ang tunay na kulay (is it black) ni Binay and surely he will all praises now with Enrile. But maybe Binay is just too forward minded that he manipulated Cory that’s why Enrile and Honasan, etal are off the hook and now, they are dancing the same music

  • speaksoftlylove

    Kung di lang ako naging trusted official ng dating mambabatas ay maniniwala ako dito kay Santiago hook, line, and sinker.  That 1.6 cash gift is just peanuts to them. Aside from the Senate President, Majority Leader, and Minority Leader, Chairpersons of Committees are targets of regular lobbyists. Money flows from these lobbyists regularly in such amounts that you can’t even imagine. Every senator is a Chairman or Vice chairman of Committees. Some are chairpersons of more than one committee. Added to this are sub committees and there are also oversight commjittees. Finally they are members of several committes. Mantakin mo kung magkanong pera ang kinakabig ng mga yan? Buti kung local lobbyists lang ang lalapit sa kanila. There are multinational companies just like what happened to the enactment of RH law. Sometimes they even forgot to cash or deposit their salaries sa dami gaya ni Loren. Tapos magmamaktol si Santiago sa 250,000? The only motive that I can see in Santiago is her selfish bloated ego kaya kahit isang sentimo ayaw palugi. As I have said lahat sila corrupt, no exceptions.  And, being less corrupt does not make anyone credible of course, because there is no such thing as less corrupt hence more credible.

  • concern_netizen

    I am really enjoying my love-hate relationship with Miriam.  Enrile is desperately cleaning up his mess because he knows his time is running out.  Like typical Filipinos, we were more forgiving, giving an old man his chance for repentance.  We gave him the chance to mend his ways and even kept an open mind while reading his memoir.  After all, a dying man tells no lies(?).  It takes a Miriam to snap us back to consciousness.  Give Enrile his day in court. After all, justice is not for the dead but for the living.

    If the country’s house of congress is one we Filipinos can really be proud of, one we will not be ridiculing now and then for their mediocrity and idiocy, we would not even reach this point we see them struggling to keep their names off the mud fields?  Decent senators and congressmen and women should not engage in petty intramural while media is around sniffing their dirty linens?  Hindi man lang makuhang mahiya ng mga ito they are like children going at it everyday?  Shameless people is what these are.

    Si Enrile, sinasabing legal yung ginawa niya, pero kahit legal iyon, hindi ibig sabihin tama. Pera ng bayan iyon. bakit niya ibibgay iyon na pamasko sa mga senador. tapos hindi pa lahat binigyan. halatang may hinanakit siya sa 4 na hindi niya binigyan e!

      i concur. when marcos with the conivance of enrile declared martial law, he envoked the four way test, namely: (1) is it legal? (2) is it moral? (3) is it germane to the general interest of the public? (4) is it beneficial to all concerned? under the circumtance, there is no doubt in my mind that he misarably fails to meet the criteria which mr. marcos and him enunciated.

    SANTIAGO: It’s what the Filipino wants that you immediately file the case against Enrile to settle your word war in a professional manner. Please refrain from grandstanding in the Media for it’s not good to our country furthermore it would just degrade our institutions and the integrity of our government since the eye of the world is watching.

    Both of you and Enrile spewing vile words at each other depicts the mannerism of the predatory animals screwing each other in hostility for the leadership of the turf. Both of you are setting a very nasty example not suitable for public view since it greatly influences the young people–the upcoming leaders. And the hilarity it exacts is both of you are lawyers guided by the knowledge that the court holds the key to to the disposition of your recriminations and not the Tri Media.

    Both of you aren’t stage players but honorable senators so please act like one. Resign if both of you desires to be comical actor and actress in the cinema which honestly I say is awaiting your kind. He he he.

    Enrile is a sure loser in this scrimmage. You cant go low further when fighting a lady nicknamed Brenda. While Santiago can always get away unscathed, just look at the impeachment trial, people were hurling bad words at her way but at the end of the day, she is still one of the more respected senator (compared to Revilla, Sotto, Estrada, Lapid and Honasan)

    Now that elections are coming, it appears the Philippines Senate is turning into a free for all wrestling match, and with its cast of charlatans, it will hopefully become a no holds barred, mud slinging contest that the world can sit and watch with some amusement. One must admit that there is some pleasure in watching your adversaries tear, scratch, and kick each other apart. If any good is to come out of this, it will be that ALL the senators and politicians reveal their SALN, just as Corona had to, so the Nation can see once and for all who their real public servants are, and those who are propagating the cancer of corruption. So, let’s bring it on…. it’s showtime !!!!!

  • buttones

    Quote’ – “I will probably not reply to what she had said. We will just let the public decide who is right,” Enrile told dzBB.
    Yes Mr Enrile, I think most of us have decided who is right in this matter, sorry to say dear but looking at the posts it seems it’s not you- Do you care? I doubt it, not in your frail dotage, all efforts must now be expended on getting the offspring into the House- at ALL costs eh -Mr Enrile?
    Personally speaking I think deep down Mr Enrile is a bitter, disappointed old man- he was ‘always the bridesmaid but never the bride’ as they say- too late now….

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3TWVIBNBHJIBKXLUC5IT2JYM5E Harry

      Frustrated old man. He plotted against the dying Marcos and could have become the next hero-dictator of the country but at the most critical moment of his life his courage betrayed him.
      Thereafter, every coup was designed to install him as the head but when all attempts failed, all he can do is to occupy the position closest to the presidency still hoping ….

      Some politicians will wish that Goethe’ s Faust is true. A 24 years extension is not too bad for old men.

      • buttones

        Not that familiar with Faust other than to know it’s a tragedy; bit like PH really. Who knows what goes on in the minds of dithering old men who have witnessed and condoned rampant corruption, martial Law, false imprisonment and all that entails, the environmental destruction of an entire country and never even bothered to offer a single protest? I doubt Enrile harbors any feeling of guilt at all, he is not that sort of person.
        If indeed he is ’still hoping’- well there is a saying that those who live in hope will die in despair, and that’s probably how Enrile will end up. From an observers view the man has done quite well really, a peso billionaire, a long life, people hanging on to his every word as gospel in order to get a few extra pennies in their purse at Xmas time, the polyester robe he wears is bit tacky, but yes, on the whole he did ok…..

      • Jane Tan

        Of course, he was actually the most powerful man in the country, but without the title.

      • buttones

        A king without a crown? A man desperately seeking legitimacy? Could be true- probably was/is ….still is. I always view Enrile as a sad sort of figure, the word ‘pathos’ springs to mind….a few other words as well but this being a family newspaper better not to mention……

      • catmanjohn

        I think he preferred it that way. This man is a clever survivor, who as the front man for the U.S. War Machine against Vietnam and communism, played his cards well. Unfortunately, instead of putting the welfare of the People first with socialistic policies, like South Korea, he misused his position for personal power and fortunes, thus keeping the endemic corruption alive.

        Thanks Harry, you remind me to brush up on my Faust- I read English Lit in the UK, heard of the guy but it was mainly Dickens, Bronte, and so many others, even Chekov and Camus and all the dead poets as well- If it is the case that the ’gentleman’ in question has/ did sell his soul to the devil for 24 years for youth and power, well evidently the ‘youth’ went many years ago, and it seems to me the ‘power’ has come down to handing out pennies to those around him in order to cling on to that ‘power’ he desperately seeks…..What a tragic portrait of a human being Enrile really is…

    Brenda was right. Enrile’s fashion of becoming President had time and again thwarted by history. He tried overthrowing the dictator Marcos (No.1 tuta siya ni Apo Marcos noon) in 1986 thinking he would have been installed the President but Cory was the unanimous choice of the people then. When Cory took over, Enrile admitted cheating on that Snap Election in his regions giving Marcos more than 600,000 votes over Cory and he also confessed before the public that his supposed ambush was fake.  But in the course of Cory’s reign, he began to criticize Cory as being left-leaning (with Cory’s men in govt. then were Joker Arroyo, Saguisag, etal) and initiated a series of coups headed by his top bodyguard Gringo Honasan (who still acts as bodyguard today even if he is now a senator). The RAM movement headed by Gringo and Red Kapunan launched a series of destabilizing attempts to overthrow Cory but the United States intervened thus defeating the RAM coups. Enrile’s riches did not come mainly from his profession as a lawyer but in Illegal Logging. Besides, when he was Martial Law Administrator, he was the 2nd most powerful man in the Phil. and he wielded too much power and influence thus accumulating too much money via local and foreign lobbyists and other behind the door transactions. DO NOT VOTE FOR UNA CANDIDATES AND STOP THE DYNATIES AND REJECT ALL ANTI-RH POLITICIANS!

        Nag-survey ka na ba? Kahit sabihin mo pa na college graduate na si Jay dela Cruz hindi pa rin maaalis ang bumoto sa di dapat iboto. Educated saan?  We should have strick rules sa qualification ng dapat mag-serbisyo sa mamamayan. “Serbis, Sir?”

      • litotan

        with due respect to your opinion, what is the relevance of the survey you are talking about? education is not limited to classroom education. there are many mediums that can be availed of. with respect to the last sentence in your answer, the sa,me is already dealt with under the constitution. even if we are to stick sa rules sa qualification ha sinabi mo still, the decission making rests in the electorate.

      • Jane Tan

        Frankly, I agree with both you and Marlou. I think both of your sides should be applied. I don’t think that one can exist without the other, lest we elect another Erap.

    Di tulad sa Atimonan, ratratan agad.

    On the other hand, if these two were in the US and behaving badly, Enrile would be in Convalescent Hospital or Nursing Home while Miriam is in Board and Care facility.

  • Reorita

    Enrile really profited in gargantuan proportion during martial law. Just as an example are the logging company he owned in Samar and Agusan provinces. He also have a 3000 ha coconut plantation that was distributed to the farmers through CARP in Lamitan, Basilan.

    if jpe became our president after marcos…the PHILIPPINES could be a FIRST WORLD COUNTRY by now…maybe strongest in ASIA…….only setback is  we could still be under military rule & human rights violations is chart breaking …….following his rags to riches life story….he can duplicate that for our country..maybe 1/6 of ASEAN is now RP TERRITORY…..INTELLIGENT people should be ADMIRED not necessarily their SINS & GREED….long live JPE……please make a STATESMAN  EXIT as your legacy….sayang po…your stand against imperialists china & usa show your inner core..pursue on that…history will be kind… : > )

    • Jane Tan

      Actually, in this rare instance, I would have to agree with AE on the fact that the Philippines would have been a better country if placed under military rule. Though I would disagree with JPE being the person to lead us.

      Giving democracy to a nation whose countrymen (majority) exhibit no discipline and self-respect is like wildfire, it only stops once every resource that can be taken to fuel itself is gone.

    Enrile is one of those anti-rh bill proponents. And besides…. RH pills, divorces and contraceptive medicines are prevalent in most countries in the world and even in Italy where the Vatican is located. We’ve long been fooled by the priests (even during the Spanish time) that half of our lands in the Philippines are owned by the religious orders and they dont even pay taxes. Enrile and his ilks want us to continue that route and I honestly believe that the Almighty does not want his children to “multiply” non-stop, populate the world and create a situation that children as we see now are roaming the streets, without proper education, without clothings, without proper health coverage and without proper care.  Hindi ginusto ng Diyos na dumami ng husto ang mundo at maghirap ang mga anak niya tulad ngayon. I may differ from the anti-rh proponents but waking up to reality is the best remedy.  Kung di kayang pag-aralin, palakihin, damitan at bigyan ng sapat na kalusugan ang mga bata…. HUWAG MUNANG MAGANAK! Enrile and his tutas are the ones pushing against the RH bill and his tiff against  Brenda only worsens the situation. Again, DO NOT VOTE FOR UNA CANDIDATES WHO ARE KNOWN TRAPOS!

    • cute79

      agree!

    • grace888

       you are pro RH yet you call the author of the bill brenda??!!! Where are you coming from??!!! How did Sen. Santiago “worsen the situation” may i ask??! You should appreciate what she’s doing… going head-on with a liar & the most indecent person in the senate!!! she’s the only one who has the balls to do that!

    • Komen To

      Did you miss your medicine again, Benjie? We need more senators like Miriam in this issue. She’s got balls, do you?

    Palagay ko ay dapat ng palitan si Lolong Johnny bilang senate president. Huwag ng hintayin ang kanyang pagreretiro. Hindi na makatwiran ang kanyang pinaggagagawa… Isipin mong dahil lang sa RH Bill ay naging isip bata na siya. Dahil si Alan at Pia Cayetnao ay pro RH Bill lalo na si Pia at Miriam na mga may pakana ng RH Bill, ito naman si Trillanes ay ginalit na husto si Lolong Johnny, kaya ang resulta ay parang isip bata si Lolong Johnny binigyan lang sila ng karampot doon sa savings ng senado… Pero hanga ako kay Senator Miriam binanatan ba naman si Lolong Johnny ng tungkol sa naging papel nito sa panahon ng Martial Law. Hindi masagot ni Lolong ang kanyang partisipasyon noong panahon ng Martial Law na siya mismo ang may akda. Kaya takot siyang makipagdebate kay senator Miriam kasi ibabaon siya ng buhay sa kahihiyan kapag lumaban siya… Go! GO! GO! Senator Miriam!!!!

    • Marx Louis Wang

      Hindi rin. Kasi kung hindi pa nabigyan si Miriam ng 1/4 na katumbas ng ibinigays sa ibang senador hindi naman siya magtatatalak sa nakaraang baho. So, parang may mali rin siya kasi ngayong nag-aaway-away na sila saka lang nabunyag ito. Parang: “Hindi na kita lab kaya i-e-expose na kita.” 

    • Rolly257

      Lolong…pangalan iyon ng buwaya ah.

    • RHumabon

      Sino kaya sa dalawa ang ma K.O.?

  • cute79

    bakit kaya wala man lang masabi si Pnoy sa ginawa ni Enrile?milyones ang bonus ng mga senador samantalang ang BOSS nya ay nagugutom.Pera ng Boss nya ang pinaghati-hatian ng mga pulitikos tapos wala man lang sya masabi?hmm bakit kaya???

    • Marx Louis Wang

      Bakit kaya? Kasi hindi maliliit na mga bata ang kailangang pagalitan. Nangangamoy lupa na nga pati bulbol nila kaya si P-Noy nag-oobserba lang. P-Noy is leading a good example so let the people analyze the scenario.

    • litotan

      coa opined that it’s beyond their reach. remember, the pres. was accused of controlling the court during the corona hearing. if he say something about it, do you think his critics will keep their mouth close? we have to be realistic. under the principle of checks and balances the most the president can do is to veto any law pass by both houses. removal of the senate president is the domain of the senate.

      • RHumabon

        Besides why get in the middle of a fight. Let the two slug it out. Just enjoy watching it in the sidelines. . .Am I hearing “sa pula, sa puti?”

  • cute79

    Kapag si GMA pa ang namigay ng milyones na bonus sa mga senador at galing sa pera ng taong bayan ,sigurado may komento si Mr President araw-araw,sa pilipinas or sa ibang bansa man kahit saan lupalop sya mkrating .

    • litotan

    Dapat mag-ingat si Miriam. Rolando Olalia was tortured and murdered hours after criticizing Enrile on national TV.

      Si Mar Roxas lang naman ang gustong ampunin ng LP ang mga Ampatuan.
      Mapapakinabangan daw niya sa 2016 presidential elections.

    Patuloy ang atake ni Miriam kay Enrile sa cash gift issue. That’s LP’s
    new ‘attack dog’.

  • Guest

    LP’s Mar Roxas is just waiting January 21 where they will launch coup plan against Enrile. Sana di ako nagkamali sa A1 info ko. Hehehe!

  • Guest

    No need for LP to speak. They just leave it to Miriam Santiago, the new spokesman of LP. Bwahaha!

  • Guest

    Kahit nga yung ibang senators na kaalyado ni PNoy mas gusto pa nila si Enrile. Kesa naman daw si Drilon ang pumalit. Mababoy lang ang Senado.

  • tilamsik

    Why has it been allowed in the Appropriations Act anyway?  And why has these people been silent for so long about this?
