Love or hate him but Gordon tells it like it is

FAST AND FURIOUS Richard Gordon: That’s me. I’m sorry, no bad intention. If you don’t like it, so be it. EDWIN BACASMAS

Age has not stopped former Sen. Richard Gordon from talking fast and furious.

Most of his fellow senatorial candidates in the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) are wary of hitting President Aquino in the campaign for the elections in May where there are no clear lines between the opposition and the administration parties.

But the 67-year-old Gordon is not about to pull any punches against Aquino, who beat him in the only election he has lost—the 2010 presidential election—with the help of a “ghost,” he says.

“I have no regrets,” he said of the loss.

“I knew I was going to lose but out of principle, charge it to my hard-headedness and stubbornness, I was ready to lay it on the line. I can debate with these guys, I can tell them my accomplishments and they don’t have any accomplishments. Unfortunately, they stopped debating. And of course, you can’t beat a ghost. It was the ghost of Cory Aquino,” Gordon said in a three-hour interview with the Inquirer’s editorial staff last week.

Gordon was referring to the death of former President Corazon Aquino on Aug. 1, 2009, which catapulted her son to the front of the presidential derby, topping the race with a 42-percent share of the votes while Gordon garnered less than 2 percent.

“Do you think Noynoy would win if his mother had not died? I am not going to blame God for that … But just because he is the President doesn’t give him infallibility like the Pope,” Gordon said. “Can I be like Bam (Aquino)? Where I’d just say ‘Tito Ninoy, Tita Cory and Kuya Noynoy’ and I get elected.”

Wow Gordon

Bold statements like these have made people either love or hate Gordon—the prototypical Ateneo cheerleader; the youngest among the 320 delegates who crafted the 1973 Constitution; the mayor who made Olongapo a model city; the dynamo behind Subic’s revival after the pullout of US bases in 1992; the face of the millions of Filipino Red Cross volunteers; and the brains behind one of the most popular tourism slogans, “Wow Philippines.”

“They say ‘malakas ang dating ko.’ (They say I come on strong.) I get into trouble because I am frank and candid but that’s me. I’m sorry, but there is no ill intention in what I say. But I will use my voice, my mind because my parents worked hard to educate me … if you don’t like it, so be it,” Gordon said. “They say I’m mayabang, maybe they just have an inferiority complex.”

Gordon said that he was going back to the Senate for “love of country” because he deserved a seat in the “seniorship house with my experience, vision and accomplishments.”

“I’m still young, well at least my mind is, I am concerned because I still want change in this country. My greatest fear is to kick the bucket and I don’t see change for the next generation. You have to really coax it out of the people to make them believe again,” Gordon said.

No closure

Gordon, who is a lawyer and history major, also wondered why, after having two Aquinos in Malacañang,  the country has yet to solve the murder of former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino.

“Isn’t it sad there is no closure? We’ve had two presidents named Aquino. The people who participated in the killing of Ninoy are still alive. How come there is no closure? We owe the people justice. Some policemen might argue that if you cannot solve the problem of your father, why expect us to solve the cases of the poor? There is no closure on heroes and villains. Marcos is still haunting us, Ninoy is haunting us. Isn’t it possible that these things happen because you want to perpetuate that memory?” asked Gordon whose father’s assassination has also remained unsolved.

Biggest failings

Gordon insisted that he harbored no bitterness against the President. While he said he favored a lot of Aquino’s actions, he criticized some of them, describing as one of the administration’s “biggest failings” the way Chief Justice Renato Corona was ousted.

“They have good propaganda people. When a country removes a CJ  for graft, its image is immediately enhanced, rightly or wrongly. He might be guilty, but we made the wrong example. Like we made ‘Dirty Harry’ popular, but they are violating the rights of our people. They took out Corona using a little lady giving out evidence and leaving it in their garages. What if they did the same thing to you?”

Gordon cited “A Man for All Seasons,” where Sir Thomas More espoused giving the benefit of the doubt even to the devil.

“Media is powerful because of perception. Whether you like it or not, he (Corona) lost the game. As lawyers, we are sworn to protect the rights of the individual, the rights of the accused,” said Gordon, who served as an associate of Accra, one of the country’s top law firms, in 1975. He is a stickler for law and order, as seen in the cleanliness and discipline in Olongapo and the Subic Freeport during his term as mayor and administrator, respectively.

Gordon also cited Aquino’s alleged weakness in foreign policy, especially his handling of the territorial dispute with China and the arrest of pyramid scam culprit Manuel Amalilio in Malaysia. “We are very much in trouble in handling foreign policy. The buck stops with him and that’s why you need senior statesmen as President because of the experience and depth needed.”

He complained about “double dealing” under the Aquino administration, where a magistrate would be pilloried for plagiarism while celebrating the two similar acts committed by its two tourism secretaries—spending P6 million for the “Pilipinas Kay Ganda” promotion copied from Poland’s campaign and another P10 million for the “It’s More Fun In The Philippines” slogan stolen from Switzerland’s.

‘How can I keep quiet?’

He agreed that he could have been more popular had he listened to some of advisers, including his wife, to be more tolerant, more humble and less voluble. He said he had been dancing or singing on stage in the campaign but he drew the line in giving out basketballs, T-shirts and bubble gum.

“My wife sometimes tell me, ‘just keep silent, don’t talk.’ But how can I keep quiet when I see wrong?” said Gordon, who believed that his fifth-place ranking in the 2004 senatorial elections (pre-poll surveys pegged him at No. 35) proved that a great number Filipinos wanted their leaders to be smart and proficient.

“I don’t think there is any cogent reason for surveys other than to make money in a poor country with a colonial hangover of tremendous magnitude. Most people will say the elections are not for you or you have no chance. It’s defeatist, they only want what the surveys have proclaimed sure winners,” Gordon said.

He said his father, Olongapo City’s first mayor, James Leonard Gordon, was a “quiet man” and it was his undoing. He said his father refused to have bodyguards despite two assassination attempts (he died in the third attempt) because he was too conscious of what other people would say about him.

Gordon’s defeat in the 2010 presidential election sent him on a new career path fit for his gift of gab, hosting a radio and TV show. “Every day I had a show and people would react immediately,” said Gordon who had to quit his broadcasting job with the start of the campaign.

Red Cross

Gordon was quick to shoot down insinuations that he was using the Red Cross to inflate his political stock.

“What’s wrong with that? Would you rather I don’t do it? Would you rather I didn’t go to Nueva Ecija to save a 12-year-old girl who I didn’t even know and has, 30 years later, grown up to be a teacher? Only people who are very insecure will think I’m using the Red Cross,” Gordon said.

“What if I tell you the Red Cross is using me? My mother served 63 years in the Red Cross while I am now in my 45th year in service.” Gordon revealed that he donated to the Red Cross his eight-figure fee from a successful ad campaign for a multinational corporation in the mid-1960s.

Gordon said that the Red Cross had always been “personality-driven,” citing its founder, the Swiss businessman and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jean Henri Dunant, and actress Rosa Rosal among the organization’s famous personalities. “Why does everything have to be politicized?”

Friends again

But while Gordon is not prepared to ease up on Aquino, he has warmed up to his former nemesis in the UNA team for the first time in his political career.

“One of the great things about this is that we are friends again,” Gordon said of his reconciliation with former President Joseph Estrada, one of the pillars of UNA, who kicked him out of his Subic job. “He is not a bad person, he is a nice guy.”

On political dynasties, Gordon said he believed in protecting the right of every individual to seek public office as long as force and intimidation are not used in winning the vote. He said this issue was better left to voters because “there have been dynasties that have been felled by the ballot.”

Gordon refused to delve into the smuggling issue in the Cagayan Export Zone Authority involving one of UNA’s leaders, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. But he noted that during his time as Subic chief, he did not allow the importation of second-hand cars, only the auction of heavy equipment.

Enrile, Binay

“If we create a culture of smuggling, you will be tempted. Once you succumb, you become a part of it,” Gordon said. He said that to be fair to Enrile, “nobody would go to Cagayan” to do business. He also noted that Hong Kong was originally a smuggler’s lair before it became a manufacturing hub.

Gordon said he admired Vice President Jejomar Binary for being soft-spoken and intelligent. At this point, Gordon said Binay was the coalition’s presidential candidate in 2016, although he said he himself had not given up his dream of going to Malacañang.

    For political reasons, for thinking that he can win a senate seat, and because team Pnoy will not allow him to join Pnoy’s camp, Gordon embraced his one-time polical enemy, Erap the plunderer Estrada. He made a mistake. he will lose. Erap is a loser. The whole UNA slate is a loser. UNA is the party of plunderers, murderers, election cheaters, thieves at mga mandarambong.

      In our system of government there should be and must be a viable opposition.  I do not want the days of Marco’s virtual one party system to return.  The problem during GMA’s time is that the opposition was not strong enough to push through the impeachment complaints.  One of the few who studied, gathered evidence, and recommended the impeachment of GMA was Sen Gordon through the Blue Ribbon Committee, esp. regarding the NBN-ZTE deal.  Look at the record, Gordon is one of the few who works and worked hard to get things done: Red Cross, Olongapo, Subic, Tourism, Senate, Automated Elections.  He is NOT a plunderer, murderer, election cheater, nor thief.

      • Philcruz

        The Chairman of the Blue Ribbon Committee at that time was Alan Peter Cayetano. He was vigorously pursuing the NBN-ZTE hearings and investigation. The most critical committee position at that point in time was the Blue Ribbon Committee Chairmanship.

        But before the hearings could be completed, there was a Senate shake-up and Cayetano was replaced by Gordon.

        Gordon continued the hearings and prepared the Final Report. He exonerated Gloria. His conclusion was that Gloria only failed to control and discipline her subordinates.

        My question is..”At such a critical time as that when Gloria was about to get pinned to the wall, why was Gordon chosen to replace Cayetano?” 

        Gordon was a Gloria ally then. He is smart. He knows how to play the game of pretend.

    I voted for you then and sad to say you became a barometer for me to identify how much voters we have are still in their right mind to vote… some of us really know that we need people like you in legislative and executive post. With this recurrent failures i think the procedure itself is the problem. The government is a big corporation where everybody is the head and everybody claims they are correct thus no attainable goal. In Legislative branch we know that the job is to create laws, don’t you think we need somebody who studied law or belongs to that particular field to do the job? And thus we blame the voters and boils down to democracy where everybody has the right whoever they are. I am not against these type of voters but I’m afraid that if we keep on the same path my beloved country will be going nowhere… Its just a loop… But then again I do believe that if we still have people like Gordon meron pang chance kahit 0.02% lang yan still me chance… Sayang din si Rocco di lang natin napagbigyan…

    I got a bone to pick with this Richard Gordon. Back in 2009 in the aftermath of typhoon Ondoy calamity, our organization here abroard representing 1500 families raised more than five thousand dollars ($5000.00) and sent to PNRC electronically by VISA. Gordon at that time was the Honorary Chairman. The transfer of money was instantenous and we got a “TY” answer as an acknowledgement. We waited for a formal letter of acknowledgement or a receipt from PNRC to no avail. A year later, we sent $1000.00 to CNRC for Haiti’s earthquake victims and instanteniously we received a letter of acknowledgement and “Official Receipt”. This rekindled our issue with PNRC. We sent a letter directly to Richard Gordon’s office and we received a letter from his office staff that the Chairman’s letter will follow soon after. Up to this day We NEVER RECEIVED THE SAID LETTER. In the aftermath of typhoon “Pablo” we have collected good sum of cash to be sent to PNRC but, because of previous experience, we kind of hesitant to send it to PNRC again. This issue is a by-product of negligence or being cocky once a person is in that position too long. We don’t really know how our contribution of $5000 been disburse but, not knowing and not acknowledged will always stay a sour taste in our mouths. I hate him……

      Thanks.  This reveals the kind of man he is behind the motormouth.  He does have accomplishments to his credit but his motivation is suspect.  You get the feeling that it’s all for show, for the greater glory of Dick.  And his alignment with the plunderer Erap, his defence of Binay about dynasties, his refusal to condemn smuggling, proves expediency and the the lack of scruples.

        Hi Vincent
        You got my blessing.

    • paulgarciajr

      First of all, it is people like you and the organization you lead that make voluntary relief organizations like the PNRC viable and ultimately make the world a better place.  It would be sad if people like you loose trust in those institutions.  What I do know of the PNRC is very good.  I’m sure you could get story after story, and testimonial after testimonial of the lives and families that have been saved by the PNRC as first responders, especially in a country like the Philippines.  I have no doubt that the money you gave went to it’s intended purpose in helping the victims of Onday.  I believe the readiness both in physical and human resources of the PNRC to react to these calamities has been greatly enhance in no small part by Gordon.  The PNRC is one of the few organizations you can really count on to be there and prepared.  He is not an armchair leader, he personally goes to every corner of the Philippines as a 1st responder & to prepare all the provincial chapters.  I hope those on this board who are PNRC volunteers can get a reply for palakasantay so that the sour taste in his mouth can be cleansed.

      • palakasantayo

         I am not questioning or doubting the integrity of Red Cross organization through  out the world and that is including the Philippines but, this issue could just be an administrative one where a file got shuffled at the bottom or got lost. My issue here is how to satisfy the donors that the money was really received by PNRC and without a receipt I could see the body language of some that they don’t buy it. The only reason I posted here is because I ran out of people to pursue this and I thought I could get some action through this blog. Yes, he is not an armchair leader but, why would his office staff advised us that a personal letter from the Chair would follow… a formal letter from anyone in his office would suffice. 

    • Herman Near

    • herokiller

      It’s just my opinion. Kung gusto mong tumulong sa iba ng bukal sa iyong kalooban, hindi ka na aasa pa ng kapalit or recognition. Nakikita naman siguro natin sa telebisyon kung anong ginagawa ng Red Cross. Maybe in that way, makikita natin na may pinuntahan yung ating binigay. Just my opinion. Pero kung may SOP na dapat may receipt kapag may nag donate, dapat lang na magbigay ng receipt ang Red Cross. at siguro dapat hindi trabaho ni Sen. Gordon ang mag issue ng receipt, dapat support staff niya ang gumagawa nito or maybe sa sobrang busy ng mga personnel (or lack of personnels) sa pagtulong sa field eh wala na talagang oras para gumawa nito. 

      bakit ngayon lang lumabas ito pero noong 2010 Presidential elections eh walang ganito ? Just an inquiry.

      • palakasantayo

        We have been sending cash money for almost 10 years now everytime there is a calamity in the Philippines. We’ve been sending it to the bishop of the diocese where the calamity struck. That time in 2009, we thought PNRC would be trust worthy. Big organization like PNRC should have and must have reactive SOP when it comes to funds coming in. Remember, donation is the life line of this organization and they should be deligent, accountable and transparent in all aspects of running the organization. I’m pretty sure they have armful of paid full time people looking after the PNRC treasury working arm’s length from the front line wokers/volunteers. We were not expecting for the receipt to come from Gordon’s office, we know that but, in the absence of a receipt, we have to go after someone. We’ve sent emails to PNRC but received no response. So, Gordon was the last leg of our inquiry as he is the figure posted in the front page of the organization. It is a command responsibility. All he has to do really is, assign the case to one of his administrative staff to rectify this issue. But, to this date NO RESPONSE. So what are you going to do Mark … if you are in my position? I have dozen and maybe hundred of people behind me, my own personal integrity on the line because of this inefficiency of a system … what are you going to do? If you’ve been transgressed there is no time limit. Everytime I see that name my blood pressure shoots up. We need closure for me and my group to settle down. Our intention is good, we are not looking for grand acknowledgement pictures that I see in the PNRC Website. We just want an official receipt so that we can give more. I’m with the President P-noy in his quest for “daang matuwid”. If things are getting done right, he is in the right track but, if you are going to tell me to suck it up because it happened long time ago … it is not acceptable. Our members worked hard to come up with that money so that we can help our “kababayans” who needed it at that time, and now we don’t know where the money went? It’s hard to accept, it hurts. It is not large sum of money but we treasure every penny we sent out to Phil. thingking that we made a difference to the victims who need it most.

      • herokiller

        Sino sino na po ba mga nakausap niyo ? Maybe you can contact Ms. Gwendolyn Pang (Secretary General) or maybe Mr. Paul Pagaran (OIC, Fund Generation). This time hindi mahaharap ni Sen.

      As far as I can tell, the case is already closed. Ginawa nila ang lahat para malaman kung sino ang mastermind but they reached a dead end. Namatay na lahat ng may kinalaman e.

      This is different from the Ninoy Aquino case. Halos lahat ng mga involved sa kaso ni Ninoy ay buhay pa. With the political power and influence of the Aquino family, why is it that they are not pointing a finger to anybody until now?

      Read this:
      After 44 years, Gordon assassination still unsolved.
      Philippine Daily Inquirer | February 22, 2011 | Copyright
      Byline: Tonette Orejas, Inquirer Central LuzonCITY OF SAN FERNANDOFor all the greatness of the causes that James Leonard Tagle Gordon Sr. led for Olongapo City, justice still eludes him 44 years after his murder.His assassination by a lone man on Feb. 20, 1967, is still without a convincing closure. Investigators did not reach a point where the masterminds were identified.The gunman, Nonito Alincastre, supposedly died in a reported prison riot a day before he was to tell all, Gordons family members said.The powerful easily get away with crimes, said his son Richard, a former senator who ran and lost for president last year.Gordon Sr. was in the forefront of efforts of freeing Olongapo from the coverage of the US naval reservation, transforming it into a town and converting it shortly into a city while fighting corruption, illegal loggers, smuggling, gambling and prostitution syndicates.With most of the suspects dead over the years, Richard said the family is contending with a bitter reality.Wala na yun (The case is over), he said after noting that most of the suspected participants or masterminds died in difficult circumstances. I continue to try to find out [the details] and to try to champion the cause of other crime victims.Year after year, the Gordon clan, friends and supporters pay homage to the citys founder, whose remains are kept in a tomb on a hillside cemetery 2 kilometers from the city proper.His era was years of lighting. He laid the foundations and vision for what Olongapo is now, said James Jr., the incumbent mayor.But for Richard, the pain persists because justice has not come after all these times.Richard got names at the back of his mind on who might have ordered the killing or who benefited from it. But as a lawyer, hed rather back his suspicions with evidence.Gordon Sr. was talking to a woman outside the paymasters room at the City Hall when he was attacked. He died aboard the USS Repose, a US Navy hospital ship.The Manila Times reports showed that four days after the murder, Olongapo police chief, Godofredo Magallanes, filed charges against seven people, including former city police chief Mamerto Lorenzo and Alincastre, both from Bulacan.Inquirer sources in Zambales said Gordons assassination could be best understood in the light of the political fiefdom that existed then in the province.Some see it as the tip of a developing feud by dynasties, with Gordon Sr. as a new and brave player.Richard said he ran into a tiff with Ferdinand Marcos because the late strongman commuted the death sentence of people convicted for his fathers death into life imprisonment.This, he said, triggered this still unanswered question: Who was the big fish that convinced Marcos to commute the death sentence?
      In an earlier tribute, Gordons lawyer, former Sen. Jose W. Diokno, said of him: He was born to an American father, chose to be a Filipino, raised his children as Filipinos, served his country as a Filipino and died a Filipino hero.

       Tama si Gordon and I believed the man ! nanalo si Aquino dahil maraming candidate noon at nahati ang boto but the biggest factor of Aquino winning the election was the sympathy of the people and I do believe the other candidates were best qualified to head the Nation. Kung ( 2 ) candidate lang ang nagharap noon, palagay ko talo yang manok mo ! so , next election use your brain and vote for the most qualified individual hindi yong puro dada kulang sa gawa !

    Dick Gordon looks like a bulldog. In a good way that is. A big head with a big brain and a plump body to support all the big brain. If not for Dick Gordon’s first responders to Baguio during the 1990 North Luzon Earthquake, Cory would have taken a lot more flak for being absolutely clueless in times of emergency. Dick Gordon is a man of action and that quality alone should make him a good chief executive of the country. But I don’t mind having a brilliant mind with a brilliant track record like him in the senate.

    Good luck Senator Gordon.

      Please get your facts straight, Gordon lead the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee which gathered the evidence and recommended the prosecution of GMA regarding the NBN-ZTE Deal and in fact strongly pushed the Ombudsman to start the process towards impeachment in the House of Representatives.  He further chided the Ombudsman from dismissing the case using the excuse of the president’s immunity from suit.

  • tra6Gpeche

    Mr Richard Gordon, admittedly, did some good things for the
    country. I agree with him that the Aquinos seem not interested in solving the
    murder of former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino. Why? No one really
    knows the reason or reasons. But his reconciliation with  Mr Erap Estrada means that he is still
    thinking of becoming President someday and Mr. Estrada would be useful for his
    ambition. If Mr. Gordon is a principled man and honest and can stand on his own, he should stay away
    from politicians who are corrupt, greedy of power and known to be womanizers.
    As for Mr Corona, it is too bad that he is on the side of a person who does not
    have delicadeza and did accumulate too much wealth, in dollars and in pesos,
    while in public service. “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you
    who you are” is the quote that has no exception. Trust can’t be given to
    Mr. Gordon anymore!

    • branstark

      • paulgarciajr

        It’s amazing how quickly the political winds turn.  Enrile what largely hailed for his handling of the Corona impeachment trial, but now you say he is a stooge.  Miriam vigorously defended Corona, yet I would care to wager, you support Miriam.  She did not align with PNoy, yet you would probably not classify her as a stooge.  As for Binay, he has the only popularity rating higher than PNoy’s, and has a track record of good governance, as well as supporting the President.  As someone else commented here, Gordon is still the same Gordon you liked before, he speaks his mind, and more importantly has a proven track record of getting things done.

      • branstark

        enrile.. honestly i was impressed. i thought that he was doing that to save his name. one last hoorah for legacy’s sake. i was wrong. old habits die hard.

        binay.. good governance? not sure about that. i hear a lot of whispers from makati employees about sources of his moolah.. and sorry, i don’t usually agree with people’s choice in our country.

        like gordon, miriam almost always side with the rule of law (due process). but when she decided to side with erap and then gma, i stopped voting for her. i don’t think i have to elaborate that.

      He’s not siding Mr. Corona but just telling that the way of presenting evidences is not very professional. He’s just saying his opinion as a lawyer. Can we use evidences na iniiwan nalang ang envelope sa garahe or inaabot nalang ng isang small lady ?

    Why blame ‘Cory’s’ ghost for his lost in 2010 presidential elections.  Even if Pnoy did not run in that election, still Gordon will not win.  He conveniently forgets that Erap was second in that election.  And then there was Villar and so forth.  Is he making it appear that it was a battle between him and Pnoy?

    Why not blame his nephew who divided his votes. Had not JC Gordon delos Reyes ran, Dick should have gotten 2.5% of the votes.

    Gordon, why be offensive if you can be tactful for a good cause? Akala mo ba pinupuri ka at sikat ka sa pagiging pranka kaya lalo mong ginagawa? Palpak ka rin, ano? If ceasing to be arrogant and obnoxious will help you to be voted in office and serve the country, why not do it? Mahirap bang gawin ‘yon? If you find it difficult to find a way to divorce yourself from these flaws, how do we expect you to solve the country’s more complicated issues and problems?
    Kung ayaw ng mga tao na h’wag kang mayabang, e di iwasan mong magyabang! ‘Yan ba naman kailangan pang pag-isipan? Paano mo didisiplinahin ang taong bayan kung ang sarili mo mismo di mo kayang disiplinahin?
    At sino ka para sabihing “good” si estrada, samantalang alam ng taong bayan na bad s’ya dahil nakulong s’ya sa walang sawang pangungulimbat??
    Ang totoo duwag ka lang, e. Nagkaroon kayo ng reconciliation ng mga dati mong kagalit dahil BINATI ka na nila, so anuman ang galit at pagka-kilala mo sa kanila inalis mo na para wala ka ng kalaban, kasi nga duwag ka lang at hindi dahil biglang LUMINIS ang pagka-tao nila sa tingin mo! Kaya kung ikaw ang magiging presidente, magkakaroon ka rin ng mga
    Ks–Kabatian, Kabatian, Kabatian. Mas malala ka!

    • Danilo D. So Jr.

      Bakit hindi ba magandang ipagyabang yung mga nagawa niya? Mabuti nga siya may nagawa e yung iba nangangako pa lang na gagawin yung mga bagay na nagawa na niya. 

      Why do people tend to look more at his personality rather than his accomplishments? SIno ba ang dapat iboto? ung MABAIT o yung MAGALING?He said “ERAP is a NICE guy” – not a GOOD one. There’s a difference.

      • Vincent_Bugaboo

        Ano na ba ang nagawa n’yang ipinagmamayabang n’ya? That he was almost complicit to Arroyo’s thievery because he was silent all along? Complicity to a crime is also a crime, isn’t it? That he is obnoxiously frank, bold and loudmouth is an accomplishment? That he became smarmy to estrada and enrile because they included him in their line-up is an accomplishment? 

        And how do you differentiate “nice” from “good?” You can’t be good without being nice, and vice versa, can you? So his description of Estrada’s sudden transformation from notorious to “nice” is similar to seeing him from black to white; there can’t be no other meaning for that.
         Pero nakakita ka na ba ng “nice” plunderer? 

      • Danilo D. So Jr.

        Hindi ba accomplishment yung nabago niya ang image ng Olongapo from being a “Sin City” to being a “Model City”? Hindi ba accomplishment yung nangyari sa SUBIC? Hindi ba accomplishment ang WOW Philippines? Hindi ba accomplishment ang AUTOMATED ELECTION LAW? e yung paghawak niya sa mga Arroyo-linked cases like the “Fertilizer Fund Scam” at NBN-ZTE deal as Chairman of the Blue Ribbon Commitee hindi ba accomplishment yon?

        Know your history.

        Hindi ko na sasabihin sa iyo kung ano ang pagkakaiba ng “Nice” sa “Good”. Eto na lang: “You can say that a car is nice but not necessarily good”. Hanapin mo na lang sa Dictionary.

  • martial_law_baby

    Senator Gordon, it is one thing to be smart, frank and patriotic. But if you are seeking a public position, you must also be likeable. You must know how to compromise. Your greatest ideas will remain ideas if people dont want to listen to you because you only love hearing your voice. You don’t have a monopoly of good ideas in this country. And you are not the only one who loves this country. Remember, you are not perfect. So if you will insist on your ideas and principles, without considering that other people might have a different view which might be correct, then you are better off not holding a public office. You will just waste your energies and resources.

        Mr. So, but why was there a Senate shake-up when the Blue Ribbon Committee Chairman Alan Peter Cayetano was doggedly tightening the rope around Gloria’s neck in the NBN_ZTE scam hearings? 

        Cayetano was replaced as Chairman before the hearings could be terminated and before the Final Report could be prepared by the Chairman Cayetano. Who replaced Cayetano? Gordon. Why? And who prepared the Final Report and exonerated Gloria in that Final Report? Gordon. According to him, Gloria’s only offense was not controlling and disciplining her subordinates. Neat, huh?

        I have learned not to be deceived anymore by Gordon’s smoke and mirror tricks. He’s doing it again. All sound and fury, signifying a lot of hot air. A master at the game of pretend..almost as good as the king Enrile.

  • droccu

    The first problem with Gordon in this campaign, as very evident in this interview, is that he appears to be running for President again and NOT for Senator based on how he is assessing Pnoy as not good enough for him. He still sounds very bitter that Aquino beat him overwhelmingly in the “only election he lost—the 2010 presidential election”. Secondly, at his age he has not mellowed down his self centered bravado and  you can still hear his usual “me, my, mine myself” speeches which can be a turn off to his new party mates and the electorate. Thirdly, his biggest problem is his decision to join UNA which smacks of “transactional politics” to the core just to get what he wants at the expense of joining the stage with the likes of ERAP, JPE and Binay. The third point runs contrary to everything he is projecting to stand for or against. The three points above could be the reasons why he is NOT part of team Pnoy which could have assured him of a win. I could even have considered voting for him if he ran as an independent instead. 

    • Danilo D. So Jr.

      Hindi naman kampihan ang laban dito e. If he is allied to ERAP, JPE and Binay today, does it change the fact that he had helped a lot of people in the past?

If there is one candidate who is more competent and more effective than Dick Gordon then I will rally in front of the gates of COMELEC to have him removed in the Senetoriable Roster. I vote intelligently. That’s why I will be voting for Dick Gordon.

        “If there is one candidate who is more competent and more effective than Dick Gordon then I will rally in front of the gates of COMELEC to have him removed in the Senetoriable Roster.” WOW! Very typical of an empty Dick rhetoric. How thoughtless.
        I vote intelligently as well and I will not vote for Dick. My conscience and intelligence dictates that I should vote for BAM AQUINO. And there are certainly other competent, intelligent, sincere and principled candidates not named Dick.

    I think Gordon might be smarmy at times, but Bam is an absolute douche. Kid’s riding on the coattails of his esteemed family name, but no real experience to back it up.

      That is an issue involving Enrile- not him. You really don’t have to make everyone your enemy. That’s why he did not entertain the issue. Most likely if he has the power and authority to fix the problem then he would enforce the full force of the law against it.

    Now, Erap is not a bad person and he is a nice guy, but when he issued his Executive Order No. 1 to kick you out of SBMA and replaced you with Felicito Payumo, you likened Erap to the devil incarnate. Convenient, don’t you think?

    And of course, you’re Ok with dynasties because you’re one of its practicing professionals. I therefore believe that’s the very reason you are allied with UNA. Erap, Binay, Enrile, Magsaysay, Gordon, Garcia’s of Cebu, Emano of CDO all want to perpetuate political dynasties.

But to me and my family, we’ll vote straight Team Pinoy because we hate so much to soon realized and feel the crunch of a weakening economy if mostly elected senators come from the Team UNA who shall upon duty be fighting the gains of Pnoy in order to propel the candidacy of Binay.

    He should have run independent instead of leaning on Binay.
    Binay is his second curse after Cory.

  • cry_freedom

    1. Assuming that Gordon ran against a ghost, a ghost is NOT unbeatable. It depends on the ghost. The reason why Gordon lost, and lost badly, is because he ran against the ghost of Cory, one of the few best ghost we have ever had. If Gordon ran against the ghost of Marcos, Gordon could have possibly won.

    2. Assuming that PNoy won solely because of Cory’s death, then that is a testament that when a family had done so much for the country, there is so much goodwill generated by it that does not escape the electorate’s trust and confidence. So why take it against PNoy.

    So may I ask – can it be said to be also true for the Gordon family?

    3. You don’t need a person with a string of accomplishment to be President, or a senior statesman to be President. Just look at Arroyo and Marcos – two classic examples of how NOT to elect accomplished persons or senior statesmen to the Presidency.

    While at this, does Gordon thinks that he is an accomplished person or a senior statesman, that is why he ran for the Presidency?

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      “Assuming that Gordon ran against a ghost, a ghost is NOT unbeatable.”

      But it won this time right? Kasi if you list and read performance and platform objectively, it would not be a contest.

      Like I heard once that the Miss Universe beauty contest is a popularity contest, not a contest about [wit]… And so is the office of the presidency.

      • cry_freedom

        It won because the ghost did one of the best things in this country – restoring the democratic institutions that were raped by the dictatorship – if that is not performance, I don’t know what is.

        And as I’ve said the ghost and the family’s ghost generated so much goodwill because of what they did for this country. And the people returned the favor to one of the ghost’s family member, who ran by the way, with a platform…..

        Which has been followed by good performance, outdoing its shortcomings.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        “It won because the ghost did one of the best things in this country – restoring the democratic institutions that were raped by the dictatorship – if that is not performance, I don’t know what is.”

        It seems that you have the notion that the son is the ghost, and/or that the deeds of the ghost is the deeds of the son?

        That is certainly not true.

        I appreciate what the human behind the ghost, but my appreciation only remains to that person and that person only. Never would I expect to give merit to another person based on another person’s achievements. Nor do I give fault to one person simply because of another person’s mistakes.

        Simply, I give honor to cory because of her accomplishments alone. I would not give the same honor to his son, just as I find Pres Marcos reprehensible, I would not give the same disdain to his son.

        Let the son make his own set of achievements. As PNoy did when he was a Senator and be measured as such.

      Just to put everything in proper perspective. If Pres Cory did not die on election period, would we have Noynoy as president now? Everybody can bet their own ghosts he wont. Ask LP why. Before yellow fanatics attack me, let me tell you I am not anti-Pnoy, maybe critical at some points but never a blind and fanatic critic. I support and applaud his daang matuwid and get a bit disappointed when it accommodated freeloaders that should not be there in the first place. Gordon’s observation, in all fairness, holds water. Well, Gordon will not be able to win the 2010 pres race by any means, but Noynoy won’t either, not even being fielded as a candidate. So fanatics out there, relax. Don’t get hurt just because truth was told. But rant about Gordon being with UNA, that is the most stupid thing he had done so far. He’ll get my vote anyway, just him from that stinking alliance and some from team Pnoy, the rest will be independents.

    As for Mr. Gordon, the demon of unbridled ambition and egocentric entitlement are writ large over his face. Indeed, UNA is a menagerie of the most dangerous political predators this country has ever seen. It’s a movement for a government of megalomaniacs, by megalomaniacs, and for megalomaniacs.

He had his chance in the Senate to make his mark. The result of his presidential candidacy clearly established how detached he is from the Filipino people.

Hindi siya katulad ni Noynoy na walang ginawa sa Senado noong Senador pa siya. Noynoy said on defense that “there are too many laws” pero bakit ngayon marami silang ipinapasang batas like RH LAW at SIN TAX LAW?

      You are calling him a TRAPO? Do you even know what a TRAPO is?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/K2VH54C4AM2UFEVSVA7GDCNLVY Rizal

        I assure you I know what a TRAPO is. Dick just turned out to be one. 

        About comparison between Dick and BAM? I agree there’s none. There wouldn’t be any fair comparison between the two. That does not mean that one is superior than the other whether in intelligence or accomplishments. Dick is 67, BAM is 35. Both have accomplishments according to their own lifetime and in their own field of expertise. Having said that let me make it clear again. I prefer a newbie BAM Aquino than a proven wavering and unprincipled old traditional politician named Dick.

  • noypisiTED

    KSP itong tao na ‘to! Why involve PNoy’s departed parents in a vain attempt to prop-up his soiled image. PNoy should just ignore this loose-mouth. He leaked it himself by saying “Media is powerful because of perception” that’s why he’s using it now. Wonder how much would it cost to land in the front pages? In a desperate attempt to be popular this magniloquent conceited blabbermouth has only achieved the opposite. The majority of our voters prefer younger and more dynamic faces in the senate and would vote for fresher and more vibrant not trash talker for a senator. His time had already come many years ago and that’s it, the same bombastic style simply won’t fit with the voters anymore; it would only turn them off more.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Based on the article, Gordon is for :

    1) Keeping the old corrupt ways of the Judiciary
    2) Protecting the interests of Political dynasties
    3) Allowing smuggling to flourish. Particularly if there are VIPs protecting the turf.

      He does have solid accomplishments as a senator. He was the principal author and champion of the current Automated Elections Law and the Tourism Act, among other things. They were not easy laws to pass. But he stood up to the critics and now the Aquino administration is benefitting from these policies.

    Gordon said. “Can I be like Bam (Aquino)? Where I’d just say ‘Tito Ninoy, Tita Cory and Kuya Noynoy’ and I get elected.” 
    On political dynasties, Gordon said he believed in protecting the right of every individual to seek public office as long as force and intimidation are not used in winning the vote. He said this issue was better left to voters because “there have been dynasties that have been felled by the ballot.”

    ang sabi niya dapat MAGISIP ang tao kung sino ang dapat mamuno .tama ba na di ka pwedeng tunmakbo dahil isa ka lang anak ng pulitiko? tao ang gumagawa ng political dynasty…saka meron din bang ganitong klaseng anti-dynasty bill sa ibang bansa?

  • batchmatters

    Dick Gordon bewails the ascencion to the presidency of PNoy by strength of a ghost. Then why didn`t he summon his father`s ghost if that was the case. This goes to say that like the politicians as Dick Gordon, some ghosts are simply more popular than the others and lucky for PNoy and sad for Dick. The latter also refused to take to task JPE for smuggling, while not mincing words about a President who has shown to all what honest governance could do  in increasing national revenue collections by leaps and bounds. He also justifies Cagayan`s being a smuggling hub just because Hongkong was once upon a time a lair of smuggling activities itself. So that is Dick`s vaunted way of  “telling what it is”; that is Dick`s much ballyhooed brand of candor.

  • tarikan

    No, no, no Richard, you are not saying it as it is. You criticize that the two Aquinos in Malacanang were unable to solve Ninoy’s murder but it was the same with you father’s.

    Gordon can gain credibility if he is morally consistent. But while hitting Pnoy, he has joined the forces of Erap, a proven plunderer. He can also gain credibility if he does not resort to half-truths or downright lies. He attacks the record of Bam Aquino. But the truth is Gordon’s academic record in Ateneo would pale in comparison to that of Bam Aquino. He criticizes as plagiarism the tourism slogan without saying that the phrase “It’s more fun in…” is so common that no one has the exclusive right to it.

      Proof please.

        I recall that for the past two years, the autumn storms have drowned Metro Manila, and Laguna.  I somehow recall also that the Philippine Red Cross was on top of the situation, while the Disaster management of the government was busy waiting for decisions to be made.

         I remember the Amphibious vehicles, the modernized PRC Ambulances, the number of ready Red Cross Volunteers, and the heaps of praise given to PRC by the international Red Cross head for transforming the PRC to being a real rescue ready organization. I told myself then, I will not forget when the time comes to put a good word for the man who has led them, and that time has truly come. 

        If by “dirty” politician, you mean someone who can go chest deep into a flood to push stranded kababayans up to rescue vehicles, or by “feeding” you mean someone who would drive through mud and rain at the early morning after his birthday dinner to join a convoy of for relief operations, then for goodness sake, we lack more Gordons in our government.  This guy has been doing this for almost five decades,  every single day, that’s way older than  I am alive, where’s your alternate candidate’s track record?  What has say, __place inutile candidate name here__ done for the Filipino? 

      The truth about Gordon donating to the Red Cross his multi mullion earnings from an Ad campaign is true, but it didn’t happen in the 60′.  I’m guessing it was in the last decade he has been involved with Safeguard.

  • Mario_Garcia

    Gordon will not win with this kind of an attitude. If he wants to convey a message, he can do it with some strategy or styles that would get his message through with no people thinking that he is just a dog barking all the time.  Yes, we have problems and lots of problems but still we have to solve them one after the other.  It is impossible for us to wake up the next day and the problem s are all gone.  Magic….

    I seem to recall Alan Cayetano  was the Chairman of the Blue Ribbon Committee investigating the NBN-ZTE deal and Alan was ferociously pursuing the hearings and investigation. Then there was a Senate coup and a change of Senate leadership (Enrile replaced Villar) and Alan was replaced by Gordon.  Why?

    It was Gordon who prepared the final report of the Blue Ribbon committee. The only offense daw of Gloria was that she failed to take action to control or discipline her subordinate officials. But the other officials, he recommended charges be filed by the Ombudsman. Neat.

    Similar result in the fertilizer scam, if I recall correctly.

    • Danilo D. So Jr.

      Because there was no evidence to directly link GMA in the Fertilizer Fund Scam. And the Blue Ribbon Commitee’s job is to “investigate” then give “recommendations” and not “resolve” cases. Pero alam naman natin na GMA should be accountable. Right?

      Sa NBN-ZTE Deal naman it was Mike Arroyo who was involved as narrated by Joey De Venecia. The Blue Ribbon Commitee’s recommentation was to file charges to all the people involved then make the least involved the “WHistle Blower”  which Jun Lozada. Ngayon si Jun Lozada lang yata ang kinasuhan ng Sandigan Bayan. Can you believe that?

    In our system of government there should be and must be a viable opposition.  I do not want the days of Marco’s virtual one party system to return.  The problem during GMA’s time is that the opposition was not strong enough to push through the impeachment complaints.  One of the few who studied, gathered evidence, and recommended the impeachment of GMA was Sen Gordon through the Blue Ribbon Committee, esp. regarding the NBN-ZTE deal.  Look at the record, Gordon is one of the few who works and worked hard to get things done: Red Cross, Olongapo, Subic, Tourism, Senate, Automated Elections.  He is NOT a plunderer, murderer, election cheater, nor thief.

        Using your argument, then Team PNoy’s top 3 candidates are also “birds of the same feather.”  Loren, Chiz & Poe all welcomed the guest candidacy of UNA, and have said UNA leaders are their friends.  Chiz was instrumental in campaigning and supporting Binay.  It was Team PNoy who forbade the 3 to honor their guest candidacy with UNA.  These 3 never refused or rebuked their inclusion to UNA, and Loren & Po sent proxies to the early sorties.  Therefore, I expect you will not be voting for Loren, Chiz or Poe.

    One thing that is sure for the filipino way, is they sure as hell don’t like being told the truth, especially to their face.
    They are much happier you pat them on the back, say nice words to make them feel good. Then go and shout chismis, gossip behind their backs. That gives them the chance to go away and ponder a reply, but when it comes to in your face and they have to think immediately, never works.

  • driftw00d

    Back in the day, Gordon was one of the politicians i think has the capability to lead along with Joker A, Flavier and the late Raul Roco.
    While far from perfect, they offer us alternatives from the usual undeserving actor politicians and political dynasties whose only qualification for office is being famous.
    He still gets my vote but doesn’t necessarily means I am for UNA. I specially hate Erap and Binay as they exactly represent whats wrong with our political system.

        nabasa ko nga. dami books. you know yung servillano aquino pocketed the revolutionary funds left by antonio luna.GEN. SERVILLANO AQUINO WAS A GENERAL LOYAL TO GEN. EMILIO AGUINALDO. HE WAS RUTHLESS AND LOVED VIOLENCE. HE KILLED ALL HIS PRISONERS BECAUSE HE SAID “THEY ATE TOO MUCH.” UP TO NOW, HISTORIANS ARE DIVIDED IF HE HAD ANY HAND IN THE TREACHEROUS KILLING OF GEN. ANTONIO LUNA WHO WAS A PERCEIVED RIVAL OF GEN. AGUINALDO (WARLORD SERVILLANO’S BOSS). ANYWAY, MANY HISTORIANS BELIEVE THAT IT WAS THIS TARLAC WARLORD OF AGUINALDO WHO TOOK ALL THE MONEY OF THE REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT WHICH WAS UNDER THE CUSTODY OF LUNA AFTER LUNA WAS ASSASSINATED.

        BENIGNO AQUINO, SR., THE SON OF SERVILLANO, WAS A WILLING PUPPET OF THE JAPANESE OCCUPATION FORCES. HE FOUNDED AND HEADED THE KALIBAPI OR KAPISANAN SA PAGLINANG NG BAGONG PILIPINAS. HE GOT REALLY VERY, VERY RICH DURING THE JAPANESE OCCUPATION WHILE THE REST OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE WERE REELING UNDER THE ABUSES AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS OF THE JAPANESE. HE MARRIED HIS COUSIN AURORA AQUINO AND THEY BORE A CHILD WHOM THEY NAMED BENIGNO SERVILLANO IN HONOR OF BENIGNO, SR. AND AGUINALDO WARLORD, SERVILLANO.

        BENIGNO SERVILLANO AQUINO AQUINO, JR. BECAME A TRUSTED PUPPET OF THE AMERICANS SINCE HE WANTED TO GET OUT OF THE STIGMA WHICH HIS FATHER CARRIED AS A “JAPANESE COLLABORATOR” . HE BECAME AN “AMERICAN COLLABORATOR” . HE ADMITTED WORKING FOR THE CIA IN INDONESIA WHICH RESULTED IN THE MASS KILLING OF MILLIONS OF INDONESIANS BY GEN. SUHARTO (THE CIA MAN IN INDONESIA). BACK IN THE PHILIPPINES, HE COLLABORATED WITH THE AMERICANS IN DIVIDING THE PARTIDO KOMUNISTA NG PILIPINAS (PKP) AND THE HUKBONG MAPAGPALAYA NG BAYAN (HMB) BY SUPPLYING MONEY AND WEAPONS TO JOMA SISON AND BERNABE BUSCAYNO ALIAS “KUMANDER DANTE”. THIS RESULTED IN THE FOUNDING OF THE CPP-NPA.

        NINOY HID KUMANDER DANTE IN HACIENDA LUISITA AND PROTECTED HIM SO THAT HE WILL NOT BE ARRESTED BY THE ARMED FORCES OF THE PHILIPPINES. HE GOT WEAPONS FROM CLARK AIRBASE AND BROUGHT IT TO KUMANDER DANTE AND HIS MEN IN LUISITA. THE AFP CONFIRMS THAT THE NPA WAS EVEN AHEAD OF THE AFP IN PROCURING THE THEN-MODERN M-16 ARMALITE RIFLE BECAUSE NINOY WAS ABLE TO GET THE SAID RIFLES DIRECTLY FROM CLARK AIRBASE TO THE NPA.

        A CERTAIN FLU ORTIGAS WARNED NINOY NOT TO GO TO PLAZA MIRANDA ON AUG. 21, 1971 SINCE THERE WOULD BE A BOMBING. NINOY WAS CONSPICUOUSLY ABSENT IN THAT MITING DE AVANCE OF THE LIBERAL PARTY EVEN THOUGH HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE FIRST AS THE SUPPOSED EMCEE OF THE SAID MITING DE AVANCE. HE CONVENIENTLY ARRIVED UNSCATHED AFTER THE BOMBING AND AFTER HIS COLLEAGUES IN THE LIBERAL PARTY WERE INJURED AND ALMOST GOT WIPED OUT. UPON ARRIVAL, AFTER THE BOMBING, NINOY IMMEDIATELY ANNOUNCED THAT IT WAS “MR. MARCOS” WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEADLY CARNAGE EVEN THOUGH HE KNEW FULLY WELL THAT MARCOS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

        yung benigno aquino sr., yun ang traidor na MAKAPILI, collaborator. yung Ninoy, suspiciously missing sa Plaza Miranda, organizer ng CPP-NPA. Sino ngayon ang mga supporter ni noytard, eh di mga communists. ikaw mahiya. uto-uto ka sa dilaw.

Di mo ba alam ang UNA ay Team TAGAY nan jan ang tatlong  Alcholics Playboy Gambler Corrupt. Kung nasa Team Pnoy ka malamang pasuk ka sa winning 12.  tsk tsk tsk magchange strategy ka kumalas ka sa UNA mag independente ka .

    It’s about time that someone speaks out and address the problems with the Aquino administration and with Pnoy himself. This is the ugly truth, and it definitely hurts, especially for Pnoy. That’s if he even cares. He doesn’t even seem to listen to others, especially to his so called “bosses”. The only ones progressing in the PH are Pnoy’s family, friends and allies while majority are getting left behind. 

    Anyway, Gordon now has to keep an eye out after making bold statements about Pnoy. Next thing we know is that there already is a case filed against him and an arrest warrant is already released.

    • paulgarciajr

      I agree.  I think that was the point Gordon was making regarding Corona.  He was not for Corona per se, but he was against how Corona was taken out.  PNoy targeted him.  If PNoy was serious, he would have all the senators and congressman, governors and mayors prosecuted for improper filing of their SALNs.  The point is that PNoy wanted him out, and he put the full power of the Executive branch (DOJ, BIR, etc) to get Corona (btw, I was against Corona).  Miriam had a point regarding the “little lady” providing the crucial “evidence.”  Rules of evidence are there to protect the innocent.  What if PNoy decides he does not like you?  That’s why we need a strong and independent Senate & Judicial Branch.  Marcos, never again.

    Other staff said, he uses the Philippine Red Cross for his political advancement, a cash assistance was rolling out already in northern luzon it was put on hold because he should be the one to give the cash for the beneficiaries, luckily the staff advise the beneficiaries not to vote for him, these money does not come from his won pocket, it come from donations from donors worldwide.

I leave in Cebu and perhaps you will be blinded if you mention Gwen and their family? Oh! common sir! Baka matulad ka sa kanila? Siguro you got zealous bakit hindi ka naka line-up sa LP. Para sa akin mas credible yung mga kandidato sa LP compared to your slate.

        Si Binay is coming from the unknown statutes before EDSA 2 when Cory become the President and Jejomar Binay was elected as  Mayor in Makati…everything change in his SALN…a mayor salary will not justify the skyrocketing increase of Binay’s SALN…you can check it and make a statistical analysis…..

        We cannot deny the growth of Makati as Business Hub not because of Binay as mayor but because business center of Ayala’s, and the rest.

        He’s partnership  with Erap and Enrile is an additional blow of questionable integrity……

        I will note vote for UNA except for Gordon…..sayang lang napunta siya sa UNA dapat nag independent nalang siya…..although we understand na kailangan siya ng pera for his campaign dahil ubos lahat funding niya sa last 2010 Presidential Election….

    ” Red Cross”

    Gordon was quick to shoot down
    insinuations that he was using the Red Cross to inflate his political stock.

    “What’s wrong with that? Would you
    rather I don’t do it? Would you rather I didn’t go to Nueva Ecija to save a
    12-year-old girl who I didn’t even know and has, 30 years later, grown up to be
    a teacher? Only people who are very insecure will think I’m using the Red
    Cross,” Gordon said.

    “What if I tell you the Red Cross is
    using me? My mother served 63 years in the Red Cross while I am now in my 45th
    year in service.” Gordon revealed that he donated to the Red Cross his
    eight-figure fee from a successful ad campaign for a multinational corporation
    in the mid-1960s.

    Gordon said that the Red Cross had
    always been “personality-driven,” citing its founder, the Swiss businessman and
    Nobel Peace Prize winner Jean Henri Dunant, and actress Rosa Rosal among the
    organization’s famous personalities. “Why does everything have to be
    politicized?”

    DICK, YOU ARE USING THE PHILIPPINE RED CROSS for your political advancement, not as what you said, I have a lot of friends working for Philippine Red Cross that could confirm this.

    I recall that for the past two years, the autumn storms have drowned Metro Manila and Laguna.  I somehow recall also that the Philippine Red Cross was on top of the situation, while the Disaster management of the government was busy waiting for decisions to be made.  (BTW, I remember that talk about stopped dredging operations, and supposedly superior plans for buildling waste water basins, etc., where are we now on that?)

       I remember the Amphibious vehicles, the modernized PRC Ambulances, the number of ready Red Cross Volunteers, and the heaps of praise given to PRC by the international Red Cross head for transforming the PRC to a rescue ready organization. They were there when Filipinos NEEDED THEM. I told myself then, I will not forget when the time comes to put a good word for the man who has led them, and that time has truly come. 

      If by “dirty” politician, you people mean someone who can go chest deep into a flood to push stranded kababayans up to rescue vehicles, or by “feeding” you mean someone who would drive through mud and rain on the early morning after his birthday dinner, to join a convoy for food and relief operations, then for goodness sake, we lack more Gordons in government!  This guy has been doing this for almost five decades,  every single day, that’s way older than  I am alive, where’s your alternate candidate’s track record?  What has say, __place your inutile candidate’s name here__ done for the Filipino? 
     
    The truth about Gordon donating to the Red Cross his multi-mullion earnings from an Ad campaign is true, but it didn’t happen in the 60′.  I’m guessing it was in the last decade when he was involved with the Safeguard campaign.  To be honest, in my opinion, we don’t deserve a Gordon .  How often have we asked for better leaders yet we let them down with our inability to vote them?

    Dick Gordon has my vote. It doesn’t matter that he is political affiliation is with UNA. I think we have to discern that more than the party they represent, we must look into the individual accomplishments of the public servant we elect into office. I like his Gung ho attitude that when something needs to be done, you have to give it your best. No buts, no ifs. People don’t like his strong character because they like politician who treat them as babies.

      • http://www.facebook.com/summerreign.flores Summer Reign Flores

         Nothing against Gordon.. I actually voted for him and Bayani though I know they will not win.. That was a principled vote.. If he cannot join Team Panot because he openly criticized him, as you said, then you portray him as someone who is “namemersonal”, that’s a side of him that I didn’t know and which you just revealed.. So is he a crybaby to criticize someone who beat him?.. Why won’t he just move on from it.. Being on opposite sides of the political fence is no reason to fling mud at the others.. He won’t look good by making the others look bad.. That’s an admission of inferiority.. Sucks but you just convinced me to drop him off my list for real.. Don’t worry but he now joins Villar, Poe, the Political Prostitute, the DOM of Team Panot off my list..

        As for your gutter line of argument aimed at me, it only shows where you’re IQ is.. Sorry I won’t stoop that low to accommodate you.. Readers know who the real “bobo” between us is just by reading these exchanges..

  • Love God

    Gordon said: Removing Corona was a mistake. Corona could have survived, had he not die-hard on protecting a former corrupt president to whom he owe all his success.

    Of the 21 out of 24 senators who questioned and judge Corona loudly shouted the word “guilty”. The most ferocious was the shout of Revilla and Lapid who both belong to Coronarroyo camp.

    His own admission of hiding wealth esp the dollar accounts are really damaging. His loyalty was only to his benefactor and not to the country was visible all along the trial. 

    A judge must be a “holy person” “like God” he/she must render justice without fear or favor.

    Now Gordon says Corona was wrongly removed? Then voting for Godon would be a mistake too.

    I was prepared to vote for him but this statement came out of him made me change my mind.

    Sayang!

    • paulgarciajr

      Sorry to see that you are changing your mind by how the article was written.  I’m sure you are a PNoy supporter so it hurts to hear criticism about him.  But I wish there were more out there early in GMA’s presidency.  I’m in no way comparing PNoy to GMA, GMA was one of the worst presidents we have ever had, and PNoy is off to a good start, but is not infallible.  Gordon is not saying he was against removing Corona, but that the process must be fair and transparent.  That is why Miriam fought so vigorously regarding rules of evidence, because they are there to protect the innocent (again, I am not saying Corona is innocent, in fact, I believe he was guilty).  What Gordon & Miriam are pointing out that the fair process and the rules of law must be followed.  This was the problem during the Marcos years, if he didn’t like you, the rules were thrown out.  If PNoy was completely sincere about the reasons Corona was removed, all the SC Justices and Senators should have been submitted to the same scrutiny and process of their SALNs (including PNoy’s friends) as Corona was, but they were not.  The key evidence was from the “little lady” who was never identified.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

        “If PNoy was completely sincere about the reasons Corona was removed, all the SC Justices and Senators should have been submitted to the same scrutiny and process of their SALNs (including PNoy’s friends) as Corona was…”

        To fall for that gambit by Corona would be PLAIN IDIOCY.  Corona was the one on the dock and he gamble on trying to drag everybody with him.  If all courts would entertain every accused person’s demand that other people be investigated for some perceived wrong before he himself goes to trial, no trial would be completed in this world.

      • paulgarciajr

        bingo, that was completely the point!  The impeachment case was railroaded through the House without debate.  The evidence was gathered and discovered during the impeachment trial, one of the points Miriam was so furiously trying to underscore.  The fact is the impeachment at that point was not yet ripe, and PNoy (or better yet his friends/allies, which he supported) was bent on removing Corona come what may, regardless of the rules or the law.  In other words, at that time in the beginning, as you point out, this “trial would [not] be completed.”  He shortcut the rules for his purposes.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

        What was the point? That Corona was dragging everybody with him?  Not even a mark of an honorable man.

        The rule of law.

        If “dragging everybody with him” means impeaching everyone who was guilty of the same SALN offenses, then so be it, whether they be friend or foe of the administration.

    Either a person who talks fast is a swindler or a reckless person.
    Well, Dick Gordon appears to be both.
    Unfortunately, this article designed to promote him has become a magnifying lens to have a wider and clearer picture of a returning senator-wannabee who has aged but not in wisdom.
    The former chief justice tried to bluff his way out of the Senate impeachment tribunal. After daring the senator-judges to do what he was to do which was to open his bank accounts at the pleasure of the Ombudsman, Renato Corona walked out even while the chief senator-judge Enrile has not dismissed him. It was sign of defiance unspeakable for a person holding a revered position of SC chief justice.

    The senator-judges did not expect that he would reveal the details of his dollar accounts even when nobody asked him. That was obtuse. So, Dick Gordon, the Corona bluff did not work. It did him in further to be impeached.

    I have sensed as to how low you have become to kowtow to the triumvirate of UNA. You would have had my vote if you ran independent and kept your mouth shut. I have decided to scratch your name in my tentative list of candidates I will vote as senators this May.

    • paulgarciajr

      Using your argument, I expect you will also be scratching Loren, Chiz and Grace Poe from your tentative list of candidates.  They welcomed UNA’s guest candidate status, not one rebuffed or refused this status.  They have publicly called the UNA leaders (the triumvirate” as you put it) their friends.   Chiz was instrumental in Binay’s campaign for VP, and coined the term NoyBi.  Loren & Poe sent proxies to the early UNA sorties.  It was Team PNoy who forbade Loren, Chiz and Poe to attend UNA rallies or events.

      Another reason a person may talk fast is that they have clarity of thought, are intelligent, have a strong belief in their values, and a quick wit.  I believe Gordon is all of these.

      How did the Corona impeachment begin?  By a few of LP friends in the House with “evidence” from a “little lady,” then quickly submitted without thorough investigation.  The impeachment court was used as the evidence gathering vehicle.  If PNoy was sincere about the reason Corona was impeached, he would have had the full force of the Executive (DOJ, BIR, etc.) scrutinize all the SC Justices’ SALNs  (perhaps also all these senators, too)in the same way as Corona was subjected.  But it was not. 

      I agree that Corona was guilty and that his walk out was damning.  What Gordon & Miriam are pointing out and why Miriam so vigorously defended the rules of evidence is that the process must be fair, transparent, and in accordance with the constitution.  What Gordon was saying in the article is that he did not agree with the process.

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

        Point no. 1 – that “little lady” crap will not hold water in any court and neither was it the reason that the senator-judges voted in majority to oust Renato Corona. The impeachment tribunal cut short the time to hear more testimonies and presentation of evidence. You forgot quite conveniently that Enrile gave Corona time to defend himself. But, instead of rebutting that “little lady” crap, he proceeded to reveal where he got those dollars and ended in dramatic fashion that he is willing to sign (he motioned to sign for the TV cameras) waiver of right to confidentiality of foreign currency deposit accounts. The former chief justice bluffed but his bluff was called. That is the truth why Gordon is wrong to say that the procedure or process was wrong. What is he talking about? The Senate impeachment tribunal refined its procedures to give more time for the defendant (Corona) to explain and defend himself. He went to testify against the advice of his prosecution panel. There was nothing wrong with the process. The defendant screwed up by revealing details of his dollar accounts in direct testimony.

        Point no. 2 – It is none of your business who the candidates are in my “short list for senators”. Would you like to reveal yours? But, you cannot compel me because I hold sacred my ballot.

        Point no. 3 – My argument on a person talking fast is not about the speed of thought one has that results into a staccato of sounds coming out of the mouth. I raised an analogy that a swindler “talks fast” so that his victims will not have enough time to detect flaws while a reckless person “talks fast” without thinking of the consequences of his words which end up in impertinence and clumsiness. Those are what I think Dick Gordon is today… he is trying to pull a fast one on unsuspecting readers that he still has “it”. No, paulgarciajr. He lost it along the way to aspire for another crack at the Senate.

      • Herman Near

        Or, Gordon has unusually better management skills that he can sync mouth and mind. It is not impossible. Salespeople has that skills too.

      That’s the point, even the Pope is not infallible (although Church doctrine states he is infallible in carrying out the official duties/pronouncements as Pope), so it is not a sin to criticize even PNoy.  In fact, it is probably good for a healthy democracy.

    And so we see  failures of arguments about sleeping with corrupted people, GMA, an alleged PNRC oversight and arrogance.

    People tend to vote with emotions and feel, yet complain and whine when they vote people synonymous to incompetence and see its action.

    • paulgarciajr

      You hit the nail on the head.  That is probably the single greatest problem with PH politics, campaign finance reform.  The anti-dynasty issue is in reality a campaign finance issue.  Only the rich can afford to run, or a candidate must look for powerful campaign donors.  If you are not part of the administration ticket and its well funded resources, there are not a lot of options for serious contenders.

      Gordon addressed one of the other key issues, election tampering, being the principle author of the automated elections bill.  The rich in the past could manipulate the results of elections.  Automation leveled the playing field for more clean, honest elections.

      What is the most qualified candidate to do if he does not have the funds to run?

  • ApoNiLolo

    Here’s one person who deserves to be called a leader. Bilib ako how he transformed Olongapo, after the Americans left, from a “GI R&R facility” to a first-class, self-supporting, revenue-making district. The problem is not his frankness or “elitist” attitude. His on the wrong crowd because the “popular group” don’t want him on their ranks, afraid that he might eclipse some senator-wannabes whose sole assets are just their personalities.

    I might be accused of campaigning for the man, but it’s true personally. He got the capacity to run a country, how much more, as a sitting senator.

    Political mileage in aid of election. So facile to discern though one is an elem grad that due to Gordon’s low survey rating, he must risk to scathe a bit Aquino’s integrity hoping that his antics would open the flood gate of electoral support to his candidacy. Gordon has to rip into Pnoy even with jest or scathing remarks which ever one calls it for sans this blazing attack he would still remain at the tail end of the senatorial race. But in all honesty, Gordon shall fail now because he joined the wrong camp. Had he zipped his foolish pride and unite himself to the Team Pnoy then his chance to be included in the magic 12 is great. What a waste of a dynamic leader this Gordon as proven by his stint in Olongapo for decades but that’s life as God had said in the bible many are called but so few are chosen and this time Gordon seemed to be.

  • JasonBieber

    Gordon should not attack PNoy. He was elected as President and we all have to deal with it. People, especially those who voted for PNoy, should not complain about the lack of real achievements that this Administration has.

    What did you expect when you voted as President a person who had no real achievements while in the Senate and Congress…the only thing we known that he did during his time in Senate and Congress was play video games…so now as President don’t expect much and just hope by 2016 all the growth the country has seen the past decade doesn’t disappear.

        For you, Gordon is a demon. But for me who saw how he worked and performed, he is an angel.

        Perhaps it was necessary for him to have some of those demonic properties to make him effective in good work.

        Just like with all things, there are things way better or way worse, and I’d say there are choices way worse than Gordon; so much I’d rather settle for him. I wouldn’t elect a greenhorn or someone undeniably corrupt that he hasn’t done a single good thing at all.

        Looks like you fell for that liar’s snare. Tsk.

    Accomplishment-wise this guy is brilliant and truly deserving of senatorial post. His campaign strategy however stinks and is not in any reflective of his potentials.   He should hire a good image engineering consultant to give him a thorough spruce up and that might save the day for him. 

  • odiebelmont

    anong pinagsasabi mo Dick Gordon? Natira ako sa Gapo during your time, isa kang   matapobreng diktador, benggador, at mapaghiganting punong bayan. At wag ka ring magmalinis dahil isa ka rin sa mga nag pasasa sa kabang yaman ng bansa.  Talamak ang importasyon ng used car during your time in Subic.  I remember, meron isang kumpanya na gustong mag invest sa Subic to put up a fast craft from Manila bay to Subic as alternative mode of transportation, parehas ng fast craft Cebu-Bohol-Cebu, pero hindi sila nakakuha ng permit to operate, kasi gusto mong maging ka-partner sa business na laway lang ang puhunan. PWE!

    Dick Gordon did not change his mayabang and dictatorial attitudes in spite that he only got less than two percent of votes last 2010 presidential election clearly showing that the Filipino people do not like him. We do not deserve a person like him who possesses this kind of negative behavior to be elected again in the senate.

    Yes, gordon was right when he said that he successfully tranformed SBMA into an international hub during his term as Administrator. But asked him about the info on how much money did he make through the under the table transactions? Ask him also  the report  that he has  many housing units  in SBMA putting these units in others name, then have it rented. Ask him how much he is making on the monthly rental alone even at present.

    Ang Olongapo City ay may pagkakautang ng humigit kumulang Php4 billion sa National Power Corp. This was bannered in the news recently. Surely, this huge debt didn’t happen overnight. It was a product of long years of incompetence. And who were the Mayors of Olongapo for more than 3 decades already? You’re right – the Gordons. Sino ngayon ang responsable sa pagkakautang na ‘yan? And now here comes another Gordon who wants to become senator – again? Now that the Comelec doesn’t have a “Hello Garci” anymore let’s see if politicians like Gordon would be able to win again. By the way heard that the infamous Garci now lives and maintains a high-end condo unit at the Loft in Subic which he was able to buy shortly after the 2004 elections where Dick Gordon who was languishing in the cellars (meaning – kulelat) then suddenly zoomed to the top 6 of the senatorial candidates. Hmmm…what a coincidence hah, Garci buying a luxury condo at The Loft and Gordon who was kulelat in the ranking incidentally won.

  • pubringjuandelacruz

    I’m just wondering how did Dick Gordon ended in UNA? 
    was it because he don’t to be in the same both to the person who defeated him in pres. election?
    does he believe with all his heart that UNA are really genuine public servants and doesn’t have any skeletons in the closets?

    hmmm…..

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      “I’m just wondering how did Dick Gordon ended in UNA? ”

      I guess the better question is, why do politicians join political parties?

      Kasi, if you run independently, as in no political parties. Campaign would be much harder and costlier, than an organized political party. Definitely, exposure would come in handy when you are trying to convince people to vote for you, especially if half of the population do not even know you exist, and you are running for a national position. And so, their chances of winning dramatically increase.

      But keep in mind, these political parties are but a vehicle to get to their destination, whether that destination is public office, or back to their day job (lost).

      Also keep in mind that if you ride public transport, you do not know the people you ride with. And so with politicians who ride on their party’s slate.

      And with that, some party mates do not necessarily agree on common methods and practices of governing. Party candidates often disagree a lot of things. Take for instance the past election. Where the majority won the seats in the senate, only to fight amongst themselves once election is over.

      Like the jeepney, people tend to get down once they get to where they are going, and ride another jeepney connecting them to their next destination. And so do politicians jumping to another party.

    Gordon know’s how to use other people and lead them, ganyan syang kagaling at katalino…  how can you be a leader if you cant lead other people? 
    the problem is many are just looking in the coalition not on the achievements of an individual… dahil sumapi sa UNA… masama agad? wtf …wala ng research2x…ang babaw naman ng mga filipino, tapos naniniwala pa sa survey na pagmamayari naman ng mga cojuanco at mangajas at mga abads na BBF ni  Abnoy?? ganyang kabobo mga botante sa Pilipinas…”Magaling ka sana kaso sumali ka sa coalisyong ayaw ko”… another is  “magaling ka sana kaso mahina ka sa survey”… Filipinos are really good on tagging other people… kapag yumaman o umunlad ang isang tao, “iligal ang ginagawa nyan” (ganyang magisip ang mga pilipino – napaka insecure)…
