Enrile, Santiago call ceasefire

As their bitter and very public feud entered the 10th day, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago made separate decisions to lie low and rest.

Santiago cited doctors’ warnings that the “slightest provocation” could cause her to have a second and possibly more serious stroke after she burst a blood vessel in the right eye because of hypertension following a television appearance last Wednesday.

One of Santiago’s doctors, former health secretary Esperanza Cabral, reportedly warned her that “her political enemies might be dancing on her grave if she continues to fight them single-handedly.”

Enrile said he would pray for Santiago’s recovery and asked reporters to stop questioning him further about his conflict with the senator over the allegedly unequal distribution of Senate largesse.

“If you please, don’t ask me any more questions just to pit the senators against one another. I don’t like that. Don’t destroy the image of the Senate, please,” he said in Filipino in a phone-patch interview.

Santiago came out swinging the day the Inquirer ran a story that Enrile had excluded her and three other senators from the distribution of P1.618 million each for additional maintenance and other operational expenditures (MOOE) last December.

Santiago and Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Pia Cayetano and Antonio Trillanes were, however, given the first tranche of P600,000 each in additional MOOE in November as well as a P250,000 each cash gift. Santiago returned the P250,00 to Enrile’s office, saying that he had also returned her Christmas present of cookies to him.

While audit rules allow the Senate President to realign the chamber’s savings and convert these to MOOE, Santiago deplored the practice as “unconstitutional” and “unconscionable.”

Enrile said his and Santiago’s individual decisions to refrain from making statements on the MOOE were by no means a ceasefire.

“I have stopped speaking about the issue for a long time. This is not a ceasefire because I have no enemies,” he stressed.

Lacson offensive


Their statements were a letdown to Senate observers, particularly after Sen. Panfilo Lacson went on the attack on radio yesterday, saying an unnamed colleague in the chamber had listed his/her maids on the government payroll.

Meanwhile, the senator’s spouse was using Senate funds for “grocery allowance” and also government money to pay rent for a satellite office located in a building that the same senator owns, Lacson claimed.

On COA’s hands


Lacson told radio anchor Korina Sanchez he would rather that the Commission on Audit (COA) determine who the unnamed senator was based on the information he gave.

Told about Lacson’s latest disclosure, Enrile said the senator would know as Lacson is chairman of the Senate accounts committee which, according to the Senate website, is in charge of “all matters relating to the auditing and adjustment of all accounts chargeable against the funds for the expenses and activities” of the chamber.

Lacson earlier accused Santiago of being a “crusading crook” for alluding to him as Enrile’s “attack dog.” He also chided Santiago for making a fuss about her colleagues getting the additional MOOE in December but did not say anything when her office got the first tranche of the MOOE in November.

Santiago did not respond to Lacson’s accusations Thursday.

Her media officer Tom Tolibas announced that the senator “will no longer be available for media interviews starting (Thursday), to continue indefinitely until her blood pressure stabilizes.”

In an e-mailed statement, Santiago said her blood pressure as of Thursday was 184/100.

Cabral was also quoted as saying that the senator had a mild stroke about 10 years ago and that her two younger brothers had died of heart attacks.

Medical history


“With that kind of medical history, Senator Santiago will be placing herself in harm’s way if she continues her battle against her fellow senators,” Cabral said.

Santiago said she would have to be absent when the Senate resumes session on Monday as she has been advised by Cabral and ophthalmologist Dr. Rodolfo Chuanico of the East Avenue Medical Center to “disengage from politics” and “be insulated from political news for the time being.”

Santiago’s statement quoted Chuanico as saying that the blood clot in her right eye “is already a warning that another abrupt rise in blood pressure might cause a stroke.”

2nd stroke imminent


“Technically, Senator Santiago suffered a mild stroke after her TV interview.  Fortunately, the stroke went to her eye instead of her brain. If she continues as usual, a second stroke will be imminent,” Chuanico said.

At the Kapihan sa Senado, Sen. Francis Escudero joined Santiago’s call for a COA audit of all expenses incurred by the senators’ offices.

    01. The issue of cash-gift and the abused MOOE have been overshadowed by Kuratong Baleleng 2.0 or better known as Quezon Massacre.

    02. Crusading against crooks in the senate is detrimental to Senator Santiago’s health. Crossing swords with Senator Santiago is detrimental to Jackie Enrile’s chances of getting into the senate. Squealing on fellow senators is tantamount to breaking the senate’s honor code according to Lacson.

    03. Speaking up and taking a stand on the cash-gift and the abused MOOE will put the LP senators in an awkward position. Drilon is the champion of overstaffing and overbudget that gets converted into savings and then into bonuses by yearend. Long live hypocrisy!

    04. The pro-administration bias of PDI precludes it from giving too much coverage on the issue.

    05. Both UNA and LP will be glad to see the issue of cash-gift and the abused MOOE die a natural death.

    06. That’s how news cycles go. They come and they go and come again and go again. The Filipino people have been given the runaround and taken for a ride again.

      • cogito728sum

        As long as there’s something left, no matter how little it is, we have to protect it from the depredations of those obligated to afford such protection.  We squander integrity and we forfeit the ability to face our fellowman with head help up high.  Merci!

    • where_I_stand

      The cease and desist is more proper to be issued to the yellow media.
      Let the two legislators stop their word war.

      • leubas


    • where_I_stand

      On integrity of the institution.

      The intrusion of the Executive to the Legislative caused more damage than the word war between and among senators. 

      • cogito728sum

        I don’t know about your credentials and I won’t prejudge your arguments solely on the basis thereof.  But this notion about “yellow media” and your over emphasis on it in your arguments certainly betrays your independence of thought.  It seems to me that anyone who does not conform to your train of thought is “yellow” in your perception of pigmentation.  Well, let me emphasize to you, Sir, that I maintain my brown complexion irrespective of political issues and other considerations.  I have criticized this President and any other president or high public officials for that matter and will continue to do so because I believe that the general weal, as you have rightly emphasized in one of your commentaries, prevails over any personal considerations.

        As to the intrusion of the “Executive to the Legislative”, I may agree with you as far as unwarranted or questionable intrusion is concerned.  Such should be discouraged.  But if your statement runs along the line of absolute non-intrusion, non-interference, I beg to respectfully disagree and suggest that you revisit your political law, political science, or the basic concepts of democratic form of government assuming you bear credentials in those fields.  There is no such thing as absolute independence among the three branches of our government.  They work hand in hand in the service and the betterment of the citizenry.

        If you reread my post, the wordings “cease and desist must be mandated by both parties” precludes the necessity of your asssertion to “Let the two legislators stop their war.”  It just muddle the issue unnecessarily.  And please, let’s not inject in our dialogue, our association with friends with various Ph. D’s after their name in epicurean atmosphere because that doesn’t impress me at all.  What matters in us is not those letters after our name but the logic and clarity of our thoughts and the sincerity of our character, factors wanting among present day politicians.  Those letters after ones name, such as those of Corona are meaningless if they are not backed up by sincerity and integrity. 

        In parting, we can maintain our dialogue without any semblance of swaggering, only with utmost equanimity.    Merci!

        He hi he hom!  This is fun read, my good friend!  And our overly color-motivated  friend where_I_stand or where_I_kneel, the latter being how I honestly and without malice read his Disqus ID to be, would have an improved visual sense if he makes some effort to see that color is as much a property of the environment as it is of the color receptors in our eyes which, incidentally ,altthough trichromatic, does not include yellow.  The implication being, no offense meant to our friend, that if one keeps on seeing yellow, seeing an ophthalmologist would be advisable. Kudos!

      • cogito728sum

        Thanks my friend!

      • vince_bugaboo

        It is when you and Mad come out blazing that I decide it’s more fascinating to watch and observe in a given thread.

      • cogito728sum

        My friend I think I can speak for mad with confidence and without  hurting his sensibilities that when we come out in what you call “blazing” we mean no offense to anyone, personal or otherwise, but simply to straighten out things.  Just to put matters in their proper perspective, especially when they involve ideas that serve to divide us as a people.  I believe I have built enough rapport with mad, have studied enough his opinions and sentiments to involve his name in this regard.  And I can safely say as well that all we are after is to clarify issues and, if we can, close this ever widening cleavage that separates us as a  people.  Mad is one of the very few whose unbiased ideas are worth our esteem.  One who doesn’t resort to scathing remarks or cursing as some are wont to do.  I, in particular, just would like to be able to contribute to the education of some of our fellowmen and women especially when it comes to showing off and other indiscretions.  And mind you there are many countering posts to others that are unnecessary except to show some semblance of egotism or narrowness of mind.  There are also those who derive pleasure from being inveterate faultfinders bad mouthing everything and everyone without restraint.  We dont need those traits my friend, as you yourself knows, as you yourself stays away from.

        To quote Aldous Huxley, all I wish is “…order upon confusion, to bring harmony out of dissonance, and unity out of multiplicity…a primary and fundamental urge of the mind.”

        Merci, my friend good luck to you and take care!

      • vince_bugaboo

        I should have put “guns” before the blazing. If I had, you probably did not imply that I was somewhat critical when I used “blazing” in describing your “best” when poked  unnecessarily, both of you. With “your coming out with Guns blazing” would have described you as terrifying forces when provoked, not in any way to offend anyone but simply to straighten matters and confusions with more forceful clarification. 
        You don’t have to explain and rationalize  to me anything you project because I was not implying any negativity on the way you deal and interact with others with my utilization of the word blazing. 
        To be more direct, I am in awe of you two when you come out (with guns) “blazing” from time to time, that’s why I said it’s more fun to watch from the sidelines when that happnes.

      • cogito728sum

        My friend no need to be apologitic.  I understood the tenor of your statement.  And please don’t hold us in awe.  We are just as simple and ordinary as anyone.  But we have to defend our turf if need be from the forces that tend to break us as a people.  There’s too much division in our society already that to let it prevail in this milieu will not allow us to save the ship.  I’m sure you’ll do the same.  Take care and good to talk to you.  Merci!

  • Hey_Dudes

    This is no longer just a matter of party affiliation nor having the numbers to keep one’s position.

    What’s missing are the words “integrity, decency and principle” as far as Mr. Johnny Ponce Enrile is concerned. He always say he is willing to step down as senate president whenever crisis arises but turn around giving loots to his buddies to make sure he remain as such?

    In the meantime, while the senate is seen more of a circus show rather than a respectable institution by the majority of Filipino people, they are using sharp knives destroying each other?  If only Mr. Enrile is defined by the three words, he would have save his institution from public derision by stepping down voluntarily.

    • where_I_stand

      On the accusation that Enrile bribed his fellow senators to stay as Senate President (SP) is rather a partisan political judgment than a description of facts.

      GAA or budget law, allows the SP to realign Senate’s savings. This SP does not necessarily has a name Enrile [It can be Drilon, Cayetano, Legarda, Angara, or any of the senators] because regardless of who sits as SP, he/she would still realign the savings and distribute the same to other senators. Moreover, such accusation holds no water because the issue is not the distribution itself but the unequal distribution of the funds. Furthermore, how can it be a shared loots when it is subject to liquidation and audit?

      Interpretation of what makes a person with integrity, decency and principle, in our political culture, is highly subjective. Political colors and affiliation distorts any objective interpretations.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3IFSWGHJPHPOKSCK57TSLFJQJ4 X

    Why can’t these people be prosecuted?? I do not understand why are they always above the law??? Public Officials are voted by the People. They should remember that!

    • where_I_stand

      Prosecuted for what case?

      Are they above the law? I think not.

      Since these two great legislators are perceived by the vindictive administration as political foes–or less of being allies–of its political party, they are vulnerable targets of their selective cleansing. A mere infraction of the law committed by these two controversial political figures, even an administrative case, would move the assassins in Malacanang to turn every stone to persecute and prosecute them. See what happened to Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia.

      In this administration, political enemies of the Liberal Party, especially politicians with close ties with VP Binay, are easy preys for planned political assassination. They have to walk on tiptoe rather than act like above the law. Conversely, erring politicians considered as assets [concretely can harness huge numbers of voters] or friends [kaklase, kaibigan, kabarilan] of the Aquino administration can easily escape prosecution.

    2. Bakit may grocery allowance yang asawa ni Merriam? Magkano? Hiwalay ba sila ng groceries, parang hiwalay ang pula sa puti? Abay’s talo pa ang may CCT allowance si Mr. Santiago ano?

    Sumurender si Merriam di dahil sa high blood. Takot lang si Merriam na tuluyan siyang ibisto ni Pinky, tindi yata ng intel nyan ang dami pang pondo kaya di na kailangan ang pork barrel dahil peanuts lang ang pork barrel. Maging “fugitive senator” ka ba tapos babalik kundi matindi ang intel mo at pondo mo? Kaya ayun, bumahag ang buntot ng pobreng Merriam. Next time pagisipan muna bago gumawa ng iskanlo para maging bayani ha, Mrs. Santiago?

    In short, pareparehong burong talangka.

    A truce.wow, I don’t know if this be rejoicing news to be informed of or a pity to be dismayed by the turn of the events that this hocus pocus of public funds hadn’t see the light of day to assuage all our eager minds and feelings of the truth before Enrile and Santiago called the  burying of the hatchet.

    Nonetheless, the health reason of Santiago poses a serious threat to her life so, I, for one has to pray for her immediate recovery even though most often I share some nasty things about her due to her arrogance and haughtiness but be that as it may, I am pleased of her tact to protect public funds though as Enrile and the others said, she too dipped her hand on the cookie jar (savings)

  • speedstream2

    Just when things were getting really interesting, a “ceasefire”? When will “hostilities” resume, if ever? Public tiffs by so-called public servants about public funds can be quite educational for the citizenry as it provides us with an inkling about the processes and the finer details involved in the use of hard-earned taxpayers’ money. And this, once again, highlights the importance of the FOI bill, which now appears to be in limbo.

    We have the “attack dogs” of the globalist corporate elites assaulting JPE because of his pro-Filipino stand on 2 controversial laws: RH  law and Sin Tax law. The globalist snarling-attack dogs are PNOYCHIO (the Mongoloid) BRENDA (Brain-damage).Why Enrile’s being anti-RH law and anti-Sin Tax law pro-Filipino? First. the globalist elites are eugenic-control freaks who want to depopulate the world  down to 500 million people. For control purposes, this number of people are manageable and can be used as global slaves on a below-human-standard-of-living wage pay. These eugenic-control freaks would not hesitate to even use destructive means to depopulate the human race either through war, cancer-causing food, drinks or vaccines.Of course, family planning is one other means by using the cancer-causing contraceptive pills and abortive methods.

    What has the Sin Tax law to do with JPE’s nationalistic stand? It’s now an open-secret globalist elites have been orchestrating a world economic collapse in order to take over the world economy. Proof of this is, they have been pushing their tools of  global control and economic collapse through GATT and WTO. The whole world is now on the brink of economic crisis engineered by them. Through privatization and controlled central banks they have put many countries into perpetual debt and effectively destroyed their self-sustaining industries. ‘The Phl is not exempted, we have much of our industries destroyed by GATT, WTO, privatization, etc. But we have a few left, still. And through sin tax, one of the very few surviving industry, our tobacco industry,will suffer an economic “death blow” due to the heavy taxes imposed on it.

        Denzel,I understand your sentiments perfectly because I also belong to the Filipino diaspora. We Filipinos, including the future generations, don’t need to be dispersed all over the world if we could live comfortably enough in our country. But, as it is and due to the perennial kawalanghiyaan of our so-called leaders, we have to spend ang kaisa-isang buhay natin sa ibang bansa, away from kins, friends and everything. That’s an extreme sacrifice for us and our families to be able to live decently, and before we know it, we’re old and dying while our children have to follow in our footsteps, leaving us and their own families behind. It’s a never ending cycle that’s caused directly by the unscrupulousness of these tulisans in government. 
        However, hindi man masarap lagi ang magtrabaho sa ibang bansa, cheer-up, anyway, because we are still luckier that those who have no choice but to stay in the Philippines and struggle perpetually with all adversities. take care.
