More placards for ‘Ma’am Gigi’ in pro-Enrile rally



It was supposed to be an hourlong sympathy rally of Senate employees for the chamber’s beleaguered chief, Juan Ponce Enrile.Strangely, there were more placards with messages of support for the Senate President’s resigned chief of staff, Jessica “Gigi” Gonzales-Reyes.Scores of employees gathered in front of the Senate building at around lunchtime Wednesday, many of them screaming “JPE! JPE!” and “Manong Johnny!” JPE is Enrile’s initials while Johnny is how close friends call him.

“We thought of holding this for Senate President Enrile because he seems so alone at this point. We want him to know that the employees, or most of us at least, are behind him,” said lawyer Simeon Garcia Jr., who has been employed in the Senate since 2004.Garcia said another reason the employees gathered outside the building was because Enrile “brought honor and integrity to the Senate” as presiding officer in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.Allies’ employeesGarcia is the chief of staff of Senate President Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada who, along with Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III and Assistant Majority Leader Gregorio Honasan, has joined Enrile in the so-called “macho bloc” in the chamber.Observers noted that many of those who joined the gathering were employees of the four senators, although members of the staff of Senators Ralph Recto of the Liberal Party and Ramon Revilla Jr. of Lakas-CMD were also seen in the crowd.Enrile was not around when the rally was held. One source said he attended the opening of the 5th Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption at the nearby Philippine International Convention Center. Another said he was being interviewed live on television. Under fireEnrile is under fire following reports that he realigned the Senate’s savings for 2012 and converted these into a fund called additional maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE).The move displeased four senators who were not given additional MOOE, which lawmakers could liquidate through a mere certification. Social networking sites also went into overdrive denouncing the discriminate distribution of the fund.Many of the Senate employees at the rally also expressed fears that Enrile’s stay at the rostrum was under threat despite a majority vote of 11-3 during a plenary session last week rejecting his motion to declare vacant the position of Senate President.One placard said, “Happy Kami sa Iyo, Manong Johnny!” while another read “No More Fighting! Save The Senate!”However, a cursory inspection of the placards at the site showed more messages meant for Enrile’s former chief of staff, Reyes, who irrevocably resigned last week after rumors linking her romantically to the Senate President spread.This was after Reyes called Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano and his allies “hypocrites” during a radio interview after Enrile’s motion was rejected.Be strongOne pro-Reyes placard read: “Please do not leave us, Atty. Reyes!”

Another said, “Ma’am Gigi, please be strong for us!”

A third declared, “We believe in you, Atty. Reyes!” and still one said, “No to resignation of Atty. Gigi.”

While Enrile said he would convince Reyes to stay, the Senate President’s staff confirmed earlier this week that the erstwhile chief of staff had already sent for her belongings on the sixth floor where Enrile’s office is located.Most of the placards were made of Manila paper although some of the better designed ones were more carefully constructed using “cartolina” and other art materials.Garcia said the rally was not planned at length.

“We just talked among ourselves just before going down to the entrance. This was purely word of mouth,” he noted.Most generousSenate employees were quick to confirm that Enrile was one of the “most generous” Senate Presidents since Congress reopened after the fall of the Marcos regime.Many of them said that Enrile was the only Senate President who had given hefty bonuses to employees during the holiday season.Last December, Senate employees reportedly received bonuses up to P120,000 each. In previous years, there were stories of bonuses that reached P100,000 since Enrile became Senate President in 2008. Peachy Urquiola, a member of Honasan’s staff, said she did not recall another rally that expressed support for a troubled Senate President since the chamber moved to its current location in Pasay City in 1996.

“We are going out on a limb for Senate President Enrile. If it were another Senate President, I doubt whether this would happen,” she told Philippine Daily the Inquirer amid shouts of support from all around.SelectiveWhile the Commission on Audit said the Senate President was allowed by law to do this, one senator cried foul after Enrile refused to give additional MOOE worth P1.6 million to each of his four critics in the chamber.Enrile allegedly selected only 18 senators who got the additional MOOE.In lieu of the MOOE, the four senators—Minority Leader Cayetano, Pia Cayetano, Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Antonio Trillanes IV—got only a “cash gift” of P250,000 each. ‘One of the best’

Garcia said the rally did not mean the Senate employees would not welcome a replacement for Enrile.

“We will also love him (Enrile’s successor) if he shows love too. Regardless of the personality concerned, whoever will be the head of the Senate, definitely we will also respect and love him,” he said.However, Garcia said the employees could not be blamed for showing sympathy for the incumbent Senate chief.”We pity him, it appears that he has no company in the Senate. Most of us feel that if (Enrile) is not the best, he is one of the best Senate Presidents,” he said.

    We took photos of the rally members. Papa Juan and Ate Gigi will send them an envelope for “pasasalamat.” Would P100,000 of the people’s money be enough? Magsabi lang kayo kasi marami MOO MOO tayo-ha-ha-ha.

  • desi derata

    Filipinos are becoming weirder and weirder. They exhibit utter lack of moral standard. All they know is personal loyalty, lack of respect for the law despite having studied and practice law for a long time.

    Maybe tomorrow another block of rallyists would come to support another law violator.

    Just imagine, the chief of staff of Enrile disbursing money as if the money belongs to him. Enrile has the martial mentality that pops up from time to time. How can they just distribute cheques without vouchers while other government instrumentalities are too strict when it comes to ordinary government employees. 

    • xuaeenr

      Sadly I agree. Our country’s moral fiber is not that strong, perhaps its this generations that have been so exposed to all these corruptions.

      Past generations of Filipinos did stand against this kind immorality.

    • efriend

      What moral fiber?  This is the same country where it’s “Standing Room Only” in all the Churches every Sunday.  This is the same country where some folks are nailed on the cross on Good Friday.  This is the same country where people dance on the streets of Cebu while praising the Sto. Nino.  I could go on and on and on.

      It’s all for show!

    • 12JEM

       Just like the employees of the Supreme Court then in experessing undying support to the disgraced Renato.

      But in the SC there was also expression of support for Cristina, the wife of Renato.

      The wife of Enrile, another Cristina, did not have any symphathy at all. The sympathy was for GiGI.

    Galante pala si Chickboy mamigay ng pera ng bayan…

    Ang sarap talaga mamudmod ng pera lalo na hindi galing sa sariling mong bulsa ano Enrile? Bakit ba buhay ka pa?

    Hmmm… P100K per employee, that sounds like my withholding tax! Happy to make a select few get merry last Christmas.

    Need to get back to work (in the private sector) so that TaxMan can have his monthly collections and feed these vultures and underlings!

  • Vincent

    These rallying “tukmols” are just fanning the fire. Imbes na unti-unting mawala sa consciousness ng taong bayan ang KAWALANG-HIYAANG nangyari at nangyayari sa senado, lalo pa itong ipino-prominent sa news ng kanilang noise over it. 

    At ang nakakasuka pa, they want their bosses to remain in position dahil malakas raw (Enrile) silang magbigay ng bonus.

    Well, wait for the backlash for your vulgar and stupid rally. Within a few hours, you’ll be tsunamied derogatively with hundreds of belittling comments by an irate masa.

    • joshua kings

      i don’t blame them; inherent in the pinoy what we call in the vernacular “utang na loob.” sila ay tumatanaw lang utang na loob…ikaw ba naman ang bigyan ng P120,000.00 bonus, kanino ka pa?  human nature…that’s how morally decadent pilipino society has become…their sense of right and wrong is skewed. sad.

    HOY! mga senate employees, huwag niyo sayangin ang pinapa suweldo sa inyo ng taong bayan at magtrabaho kayo! nakikisawsaw kayo sa politika dapat wala kayo kinakampihan! bakit naka bonus din ba kayo ng malaki galing sa matandang berdugo ng martial law kaya ganun na lang ang pagka sipsip niyo?

  • okayayonip

    wala ng pag-asang magbago ang mga pinoy, basta’t nakikinabang kakampi at magbibigay ng suporta kahit sa mga kwestionabling tao, at tsaka nagbigay na nga ng irrevocable resignation bakit parang sila ang gustong magdesisyon kesa sa may katawan. si enrile naman ay dapat kusa ng umalis sa pagka senate president kahit por delikadeza kahit pa umayaw ang mga kakampi niyang senador kasi masama na ang naging imahe ng senado dahil sa kanya at habang andyan siya sa puesto ay ‘di na magbabago ang tingin ng tao at anopa naman ang dapat niyang patunayan, ok salamat na lang at nakatulong ka sa pagpapatalsik kay corona pagbigyan mo naman ang iba na makabangon  at makabawi ang senado sa kahihiyan hindi lang sa pilipinas kundi sa ibang bansa.

    Reminds us all of the time that CJ Corona was facing trial at the impeachment court. Employees of this branch of government are more loyal to the person rather than the Filipino people. I just wish that they realize that their salaries are paid from the taxes of the people.

    Too bad, it will be hard to correctly channel their misplaced sense of loyalty.

  • Vincent

    To the rallying supporters of john-john ang Gigi: 
    whether your messages on behalf of John-john and Gigi are written on cartolinas, manila paper, Mcdonald napkins and toilet paper, they’re of no use to us.. except maybe the toilet paper.

    Your noisy and misplaced demonstration of loyalty to your bosses–and bonuses–is not helping them; you are stupidly stoking the ire of the people by reminding them of the scandalous, blatant thievery of their hard-earned money by these modern bandits. Thank you for your unthinking support to our effort of eradicating these species from Philippine politics and society forever.

  • mabyrik

    “…because Enrile “brought honor and integrity to the Senate”.. says by senate staff.
    Wrong!!! He did not bring honor and integrity into the senate. He brings more shame to an institution already saddled with corruption even before he came in. He also confirmed that the senate is a house full of thie/ves, not a house of angels, the house that has been used by hoodlums as hideout for a long, long time in planning how to conduct heist after heist. 

    As he entered the house of thieves, he carried with him a baggage full of mud and dirt that he has been carrying since he ambushed himself in 1972 in justifying ML through the entire administration of Cory when he financed and led coups to grab the presidency. Thank God, he failed miserably. He still carries that baggage even in the twilight of his life, to this very day.     

    When he became the biggest spender of Filipino’s money by giving it whimsically to the senators and to the staff, he not only slapped the taxpayers, he kicked their b/ut/ts while still down. 

    The bonus of P120,000 to the staff and P1.60M to the senators given by Enrile is not Enrile’s money. It belongs to the people. Who gave the authority to Enrile to spend it unwisely? That bonus is the year savings that should have been spent judiciously, or returned to the national treasury or should have been used to help those people who are suffering because of Pablo, but not to fatten the pockets of senators and staff who have regular good income, luxurious cars and delicious foods in their tables. 

    And intentionally, Enrile saved the tax payers money precisely for bonus of the senators and staff. Where is justice there? Is that not immoral? Is that not highway robbery in broad daylight?

    Is giving fat bonus the only criteria these senate employees are adhering to in grading a good or bad SP? If that is so, heaven helps us.

    No wonder, the senate stinks. It is peopled by crocodile and staff whose only concern is bonus, atik, pera, kuwarto and its combination. What a real shame!!!

Gusto kong sabihin na hindi ko sila masisisi dahil walang makain, pero joshko, etong mga senate employee ay namimitas ng pera dahil sa mga bonuses at gratuity.Paano,  pera ng bayan ang mga pinamimigay ng mga senador.  I DARE ANYONE OF THESE SENATE EMPLOYEES TO MAKE A PRESS RELEASE THAT THE MONEY THEY RECEIVE FROM THE SENATORS INCLUDING THEIR SALARIES ARE NOT THE FILIPINO PEOPLE’S MONEY.

    Ikaw ba naman bigyan ng P100,000 to 150,000 na bonus…tapos ang mga titser at ibang govt. employees ay na-late pa ang bonus…eh syempre susuportahan ko din sya! Pera talaga marami nagagawa…kahit sinu ka pa kung mamudmud ka ng pera ay mukhang diyos ka na! haha!

    Hoy, kayong mga supporters-kuno at nagra-rally para sa mga bosses n’yong mga senador, especially John-john and his “chief of staff, Gigi, maswerte kayo at keyboard warriors lang kami. Kung nagkataong street warriors kami, mga bugok na itlog, bulok na kamatis o kaya etsas na siguro ang ibabato namin sa inyo para matigil na ang rally-rally n’yo, tutal sanay naman kayo sa mabaho kasi d’yan mismo and source ng “stink” na hinahanap ni ma’am Gigi.

    Wala kaming magawa kundi magpasens’ya na lang kung dakdak lang ang aming magawa, kasi karamihan sa amin nasa iba-ibang lupalop ng daigdig para “magputa-puta.” ‘kala n’yo siguro madali at masarap and “pagpu-puta-puta” sa ibang bansa? Madalas kaming ma-rape, magutom, makulong, maputulan ng kamay at leeg, makidnap, mabulyawan na parang hayop, mapindeho ng aming mga asawa. Naranasan n’yo na bang magkaroon ng karagdagang anak maski wala kayong kontak sa asawa n’yo ng ilang taon? Nagtitiis kaming magutom kung minsan o kaya “replay” ang aming ulam. Paksiw sa Lunes, paksiw hanggang biyernes, alam n’yo? Ok lang, katwiran namin Etsas din ang labas kinabukasan. ‘Yan ang isa sa mga tiis at sakripisyo namin, lalo na kaming mga TNT, para kami makapag-remit ng kaunti sa aming pamilya. Pero maski kaunting halaga lamang nakakatulong pa rin sa ekonomya ng ating bansa, di ba? Ang masakit nanakawin lang ng inyong mga BOSS ang parte ng aming pinaghihirapan! At ang mas masakit pa, ipinagta-tanggol pa ninyo ang mga boss ninyong malalakas magnakaw, rally kayo ng rally, dahil natatakot kayong mawalan ng malalaking bonus na galing din sa aming “PINAGPU-PUTAHAN! 

    Ang kakapal n’yo! Wala kayong ipinag-iba sa mga pinagra-rally n’yo!
    Sana mamaos kayo at mapuno ng hangin ang inyong mga t’yan sa kasisigaw ng “JPE! tsaka No to resignation of Ma’am Gigi!” para magsi-utot kayo ng wlang katapusan!! Tutal sanay naman kayo sa amoy na bulok!

    December, Senate employees reportedly received bonuses up to P120,000 each. In
    previous years, there were stories of bonuses that reached P100,000 since
    Enrile became Senate President in 2008”.

    don’t blame the staff, even the 18 Senators have the same reason for the support

    Nauso ang bayarang rally! Mga cause oriented ang tawag sa iba pero wag ka tauhan ng China. Mga interes ng China ang ipinaglalaban. Ano ang sabi ni Trillanes noong utusan ni.Presidente Aquino sa China ang sabi ni Trillanes sa China Wag kayong magalaala di intresado ang mga Pinoy sa Panatag Shoal. kaya sa mga galit kay Enrile, tingnan nyo din yung ibang nasa pwesto. Kunyari galit sa China pero lihim ipinadala si Trillanes para sabihing sa China na ang Scarborough shoal! ibinibigay na ang Scarborough shosl sa China pero pag nagbasa ka ng Diario puro paglaban sa China ang ginagawa pero iba ang sinasabi sa China. Di kami intresado sa Scarborough!

Pag kasama ka ng mga Aquino na lumaban sa mga kalaban nila love ka nila. Makakasuhan ka lang sa Pilipinas pag lumaban ka sa mga Aquino. Di ba at pumunta sa China si Trillones para sabihing DI INTRESADO ANG MGA PINOY SA SCARBOROUGH SHOAL! Tanga ka rin! kunwari lumalaban sa China si Pinoynoy pero LIHIM NAKIKIPAGUSAP PWEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • bosesprobinsyano

    Nagtataka talaga ako bakit PUWDI  sa Senado   na  magbigay nag pera na milyon milyon  pang grocery na walang bidding. Ang hirap na hirap ang walang alam na barangay officials, pagalitan at sigawan nang COA na ikulong  at makulong kayo kung  mag purchase kahit  ten thousand na di daan sa Bids and Awards Commitee? Sabi nang COA, yong emergency lang ang puwdi walang bidding,  pero canvass. Sa purchase, lowest price  talaga. I liquidate pa at dapat may official receipt. Bakit sa Senado okay ang COA na kusang ipamigay ang million?  Natural na magrally ang mga staff sa Senado kasisila naka benefit. Paano naman ang taong bayan, yang mga nag lilinya sa hospital , humingi nang tulong  o yong natulod sa kalye  sa metro manila?

    A  120K bonus for all employees in the senate,  for  us here in the LGU a mere 10K  subject to reimbursement  if COA finds it against the 55/45 limitations… 

  • Philcruz

    One feels like puking listening to these Senate employees expressing their undying love and admiration for their beloved Senate President. Siyempre, the only Senate President who gave them the biggest bonuses ever. What a reason to love and admire the epitome of vindictiveness and pettiness and the injudicious use of Senate funds and taxpayers’ money… and at a time when the world’s parliamentarians are here to discuss anti-corruption .. where the Senate President should have been the epitome of an anti-corruption official.

  • Noel

    Guess who funded it?  JPE of course.

  • humabon

    “actions speaks more than words” these only proves that there is really an existing JPE & GIGI bonus hullabaloo going on in the senate… these placard bearing supporters just cannot keep their mouth shut because they will lose their caprice if these bonuses is stop… look who are complaining? aren’t most of them are staffers of close political allies of JPE? who are also in the same old brand name of POLITICAL DYNASTIES? i wonder why poor juan de la cruz would still vote them? when in fact it is clear that peoples money is being favored to a selected few? WTF! … where have our brains go?…

  • taga-masid

    “Many of them said that Enrile was the only Senate President who had given hefty bonuses to employees during the holiday season.Last December, Senate employees reportedly received bonuses up to P120,000 each. In previous years, there were stories of bonuses that reached P100,000 since Enrile became Senate President in 2008″. ITO ANG TUNAY NA DAHIL KUNG BAKIT ANG MGA SENATE EMPLOYEES AY NAG-DEMO, alam nila na pagpinalitan na ang senate president hindi na sila makatatanggap ng ganitong kalaking bonuses. mga senate employees, minsan ba inisip ninyo kung tunay na karapatdapat kayong tumanggap ng ganitong kalaking bonuses, at ang alam ninyo ito ay galing ka JPE – MALI ang tinanggap ninyo ay pera ng taumbayan, maging ang inyong mga sinusuweldo. kaya hinto na ninyo ang demo-demong yan.

  • Harry

    The smell of money is sweet. 

    Whoever will be the next Senate President has to follow the footsteps of Enrile to make everybody happy. What happened in the Armed Forces “pasalubong” and “pabaon” controversy existed also in the Senate in a different form and yet the Senators took pride in investigating those generals. As a result of that senate investigation, one general committed hara-kiri, is there a senator courageous enough to do the same?

    pag narinig n’ya ang second song na ito ni Gi.

    Let’s sing with her:

    ♫♪♫  “Please release me let me go, 
    for I’m not happy anymore.  
    To waste my life with you is wrong; 
    release me and let me live again.

    I have found a new Boss, dear.  
    and I wii always be near him.  
    His “thing’s” alive and yours is dead;
    release me and let me “Come Again.” 

    Please release me can’t you see,
    you are too old to cling to me
    To waste my life with you is wrong, 
    release me, I own now two mansions.” ♫♪♫

    This is a very bad indication.  Enrile not only corrupts the Senatongs, he is also corrupting the minds of the Senate staff.  He is so corrupt, he spreads his malaise to everyone.  I hope these Senate staff realizes that his corruption is infecting them; their conscience can no longer see the difference between uprightness and evil.  

    • where_I_stand

      corrupt? paano? saan? kailan?

  • AllinLawisFair

    These people are the ones who have benefited from the largesse that Enrile obtained from the national treasury in the form of budget appropriations. He has been generously giving it to his colleagues who are friendly to him to ensure their support that he may stay as Senate President. He has been doling out bonuses to Senate employees, and this show of support by them is a result of his generosity.

    It shows that these Senate employees are mostly nothing but buyable voices whose loyalty have a price. 

    Hanggang pera lang kayo.

    • where_I_stand

      I agree that these employees got more than the Php 5,000 Christmas bonus last December.

      Hindi lahat ng bagay nabibili ng pera.

      More than what they got, there must be something more in the way Enrile and Gigi managed the Senate.

      • wakats

        correction – senate janitors received P120k each last christmas – kaya tawag nila kay manong – the most generous of all senate presidents – dispensing taxpayers’ money while the overworked public school teachers received only P5k.

    Senator Enrile gives out public money to senators

    Enrile gave a whopping bonus of 1.6 million pesos each to 18 senators last Christmas. It is interesting to note that rather than hand over unused funds back to the treasury, Enrile saw it fit to distribute the so-called “savings” to Senate employees as a personal gift. According to the same report, even drivers and security personnel in the senate got bonuses ranging from 50,000.00 to 120,000.00 pesos.

Instead of putting these so-called savings into better use, i.e. projects for the poor and those afflicted by calamities, he distributed them to employees as if it were his own money. Sorry, but this rally of theirs is giving the impression that government employees aren’t that smart at all. And my parents are public school teachers. Shame on you.

    Sa laki at dami ng benefits ng mga employado ng Senado talagang magsisipsip mabuti ang mga lintang yan para patuloy silang makasipsip sa matatabang buwaya na mga senador. Wala na talagang kahihiyan ang mga magnanakaw ng salapi ng bayan. Pwe!

    The rally did more harm than good in the public eye. This is very similar to the rally made for former CJ Corona and former president Marcos. It feels like the beginning of the end. oh my…

  • rinom

    Huwag ngayon kayong hahara-hara kay Lolong Johnny at konting pino kapag kaharap nyo siya.. May pinagdadaaanan ngayon si Lolong dahil iniwan siya ng kanyang girl friend at mainit pa ang kanyang ulo. I mean yung ulo sa taas, kasi yung sa baba laging malamig…

    Si ma’am Gigi pala ang the goose that lays the golden egg. Ngayong wala na sya, patay na ang hanapbuhay. Ang malaking pagkakamali pa ng mga empleyado, putak sila ng putak ay lalo lang nilang ibinubuking sa sambayanan ang kanilang tinatagong golden eggs.

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Na-politicized na talaga ang mga empleyado ng gobyerno dahil nagkakapera! Mahiya naman kayo sa taong bayan na nagpapasuweldo sa inyo dahil ang mga sinasamba niyo ngayon ay hindi habang buhay nandiyan! wala kayo dapat panigan sa mga yan at trabaho niyo ang atupagin niyo! wala kayo pinagkaiba sa mga taga supreme court dapat sa inyo lahat sinisibak sa trabaho! Sakupin na sana ng tsina ang pilipinas at isama kayo sa lahat ng mga pulitiko na ihihilera sa payatas para i-execute at diretso sa basurahan dahil duon kayo bagay!

  • Labandera1

    Eh yung kahoy! Papano yung malaki at mahabang troso ni Enrile na hinawakan ni Gigi Reyes noon. Siguro sa tagal ng panahon ay may anay na at naaagnas na rin…..

    “We thought of holding this for Senate President Enrile because he seems so alone at this point. We want him to know that the employees, or most of us at least, are behind him,” said lawyer Simeon Garcia Jr., who has been employed in the Senate since. Ikaw ba naman merung yearly bonus in hundreds of thousands of pesos…naku hahalikan ko ang amoy imburnal na paa ni Manong Johnny. Si Ma’am GG? I love to kiss her arse, she’s so generous of the money not hers. 

  • Jon Paul

    Sayans!!!! Hindi ko alam na may rally!!! Tiba-tiba na naman ang nag-asikaso ng rally sigurado malaki na naman ang commission niya. Magkakano naman kaya ang ibinayad sa mga dumalo o naimbitang paborito? Kailangan maghanapbuhay para may makain mamamaya. Ako meron pang loud speaker kaya malaki ang singil ko sa pagdala na palakards.

    (Teka, di ba dapat voluntary ang pag-rally? Sana’y kasi ako sa hakot-style.)
