Velarde endorses 3 more candidates


The White Vote Movement led by the Catholic charismatic group El Shaddai endorsed three more senatorial candidates on top of the six it earlier named for the May 13 elections.

In an event held at the Velarde-owned Amvel City in Parañaque City on Saturday, El Shaddai leader and the movement’s spokesman Mike Velarde announced that they were also supporting United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidates Nancy Binay, Richard Gordon and Miguel Zubiri.

The three were in addition to the earlier endorsed candidates: UNA’s JV Ejercito, Gringo Honasan, Mitos Magsaysay and Team PNoy’s Koko Pimentel, Antonio Trillanes IV and Cynthia Villar.

In exchange for El Shaddai’s support, Velarde said that the candidates were made to sign a “pledge of commitment” to always fight for the Catholic Church’s stand once they get elected.

“They made a commitment that if they win, they will fight any proposed law that is against the family and anything that will lead to the annihilation of the Filipino race and things that are against the Word of God, against the commandments of God,” said Velarde.

He said the White Vote Movement will also monitor the candidates they endorsed “so we can also guide them.”

Earlier, Velarde explained that the movement was supporting these candidates because they stood with the Church in opposing the reproductive health (RH) law.

Other groups involved in the White Vote Movement include Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life, Catholic Women’s League, Focolare Movement and Bukas Loob sa Diyos.

Velarde said previous experience showed that some candidates the El Shaddai had supported in last elections voted for the RH law.

“I pleaded with them to defer the bill for further deliberations so the people may know the truth and yet when the voting came, they were there. Anyway, there is always a day of reckoning. We won’t get back at them but we will act towards the right direction,” said Velarde in his speech.

The candidates the movement endorsed have also been dubbed “Team Buhay” by the Diocese of Bacolod because they voted against the family planning measure, except for Villar.

But Velarde noted that since Villar’s husband, Sen. Manuel Villar, voted against the RH bill, “his vote can be considered as the vote of the wife.”

  • Political Jaywalker

    Velarde’s El Salakay este Shaddai is not like the Iglesia ni Batman errr Kristo able to dictate on their gullible followers who to vote.

    So who cares who Velarde endorse? One thing is clear this guy is willing to endorse an electoral cheat like Zubiri so what’s up with the so-called “white vote” as if there are black votes, LOL.

    • Kiro Nazakato

      ok yan pare ko. naglinis linisan ito c Batman, pero palagay ko ito pinakakurakot sa lahat ng nagmamalinis, at the expense of its members. Marunong ang taong bayan kung alin ang kalapati at at alin ang bwitre. Sa iglesia kinabibilangan nya ito nagpayaman ng husto. Ang feeling nya he is a church within the Church. Saka malinaw na malinaw naman tuta ito ni arroyo!!!

    • speaksoftlylove

      So, what political party do you think the INK will support? Dumadami ang ayaw na sa idolo mo. Recently, PNoy was forced to go back to Iloilo to campaign again because the local officials are bolting from Team Malisya. Their main complaint is Drilon. Lalo daw matatalo kapag si Drilon ang campaign manager. Look,at Negros Oriental. Yesterday the local officials also bolted from Team Malisya in favor of UNA. In fact, it is the 11th province whose local officials bolted from Team Malisya in favor of UNA.

      PNoy’s ship is sinking fast. It’s time to abandon ship. Kaya di lang yang mga Catholic votes at INK votes ang problema ni PNoy. Kailangan na talaga ang hocus PCOS at manufactured surveys. PNoy and his cohorts are in panic mode because once UNA will acquire majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate, not only that he will become a lameduck president but in danger of being impeached because of his incompetence and unconstitutional deeds.

      • speaksoftlylove

        Mas ugok ka. There are no “white votes” simply because there are no white voters in the Philippines, inutile na dogyot. Read it again in case your eyes are full of yellowvirus. It’s White Movement NOT White Vote doo doo.

      • white scorpion

        just look who’s who in the una and in p-noy team. makati prosper not because of binay. binay is just incidental. but because makati is makati; destined to prosper. tapos, yun ang qualifications ni nancy. pls, don’t fool yourself.

        if pres is incompetence, then what are you? look at the way you talk. i’ll bet hindi ka manalo sa sinasabi mong incompetence.

      • padrefaura

        Using the same logic of yours, our god credit is not because of pnoy. Pnoy is only incidental. It because the country is destined to improve economically.

      • kumilos_tayo

        Dun ka naman mali kasi di mo na eexpirience pag ang kausap mo eh mga Foreigner investor at pag nagpunta ka sa western country na ang madidinig mo eh gusto nila yung president natin ngayon kaysa yung mga previous president.

      • white scorpion

        granted, for the sake of argument. binay doesn’t have to work; or work hard. lahat ng malalaking business nakacenter sa makati. tax will just automatically pour in. unlike, p-noy, he MUST work hard/sale hard or else, we’ll be left FARTHER behind by our neighborS. AND we all suffers for it. that is the very same reason why i’ll support him. eventhough, i did not vote for him this last election. i appreciate his effort. he may not be perfect, but he is trying. that’s good enough for me. UNLIKE, some people out there, hindi na nga nagbabayad ng kahit anong TAX. gust pang maghariharian. ni hindi binibigyan ng halaga ang separation ng church and state.

        True. The Catholic Church cannot and should not interfere with the government because they are not paying taxes in the first place.

    • speaksoftlylove

      You and ilk are too focused on the RCC that you forgot what is happening now in the grassroots, more particularly the NPC. Aside from Pangasinan, Negros Oriental and Iloilo (Drilon’s area) which bolted from LP in favor of UNA, Bicol Region which is supposed to be solid administration are now starting to distribute sample ballots led by Salceda, listing 6 UNA, 5 LP, and one independent candidates. This is a huge blow to PNoy’s Team Malisya. I told you so, sa survey at hocus PCOS lang mananalo yang Team Malisya.

      • speaksoftlylove

        Salceda is the Chairman of the LP in the Bicol Region.

        Anong nangyari, PNoy?

    Now, I have all the reasons NOT to vote for those candidates that were endorsed by the so-called White Vote Movement. Say goodbye to my vote, Dick Gordon and Koko Pimentel. To the other candidates endorsed by the movement, you do not deserve my vote even from the start.

    • speaksoftlylove

      Plain hogwash.

      What about Pimentel, Villar and Trillanes, they are also endorsed by the White Movement?

      • legislex

        As I have written above, I originally intended to vote for Pimentel. He earned my trust when he decided to oppose the inclusion of Zubiri – a poll cheater – in UNA’s list. But the White Movement’s endorsement of Pimentel removed him from my list. Sayang din si Dick Gordon, I always trusted the man. The other candidates endorsed by the White Movement, including Villar and Trillanes, were never in my list. The Villars have the propensity of using their public office to advance their business interests. In the case of Trillanes, he met with a Chinese official in Dusit Hotel to ask for support from China for his candidacy in exchange of his help in the ongoing territorial dispute between the Philippines and China. This guy is willing to sacrifice the interest of our country for his own personal advancement.

      • speaksoftlylove

        Well and good.

        But what’s your take on Bum Aquino who did not resigned from his position in the Youth Commission under GMA’s administration even after the controversial “Hello Garci tape” obviously because he cannot resist the continued enjoyment of the perks and who together with his father Paul Aquino, the point man and campaign manger of GMA, were both Lakas CMD members?

        If you are a pure LP then your lone candidate is only Jun Magsaysay, is it not?

      • legislex

        There are three LP official senatorial candidates – Bam Aquino, Jamby Madrigal and Jun Magsaysay. I will vote for Bam Aquino and Jun Magsaysay, but not for Jamby Madrigal. I have seen how Jamby conducts herself during Senate deliberations. She is really bitchy and a real bully. She does not accept criticisms. She will do all means to make life miserable for all those who earned her ire. In the case of Jun Magsaysay, he is a typical gentleman. He respects everybody, friend or foe. He can go against another senator on any issue without them feeling being insulted. In the case of Bam Aquino, he is qualified for the job – having excellent academic background and being a recipient of national and international awards for his work. His only shortcomings are his age and his previous association with GMA. I consider his age to be an advantage as he still has his youthful idealism. I cannot condemn him when he failed to resign when GMA was found to be involved in the Hello Garci case because he was not part of it. Also, if we condemn people because they failed to resign when the controversy arose, then we should also pass the same judgment to the people from BOI, BSP, and POEA – people who have proven their competence and uprightness despite serving under GMA.

I really don’t want anyone to dictate me from practicing my right to chose who I believe is the right person or persons to lead our country. These candidates that allows themselves from this kind of endorsement do not deserve my vote, knowing that this endorser have his own personal interest.

  • tongky80

  • droccu

    “In exchange for El Shaddai’s support, Velarde said that the candidates were made to sign a “pledge of commitment” to always fight for the Catholic Church’s stand……..”

    The statement should have stopped with the word “PLEDGE” usually signifying money because the only thing these “endorsements” boil down to is MONEY and POWER which comes with it. How can one be a good independent minded legislator if at the onset you “pledge” to ALWAYS fight for the Catholic Church which is just one sector of the society you promise to serve as opposed to the entire nation?! But then again, politicians are ALWAYS known to keep their promises, right?

    Mike prefers 6 UNA and 3 LP candidates for opposing the RH bill – but nancy, gordon and zubiri did not vote during the bill’s deliberation and approval. The INC’s choice is rumored to be 6 LP and 3 UNA senatorial hopefuls.

    The inclusion of 2 gma die-hards (mitos & migz) show mike’s allegiance to the arroyo family, especially to his namesake, who made him a multi-billionaire during their time.

    Mr. Velarde, you are good in interpreting quotes and verses from the Holy Bible. Would you please interpret this..”THOU SHALL NOT USE THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN”. It seems many religious leaders wanabees are guilty of this by repeatedly preaching their fanatic followers words from the Holy Bible but actually using it to satisfy their own personal interest and in the case of Mr. Velarde, he is using these followers as potential voters to whoever candidate he endorses with something in return of course.

    Kailan ba ititiwalag ng simbahan ang bulaang kampon ng binaluktot na daan na ito?

  • jess ravalo

    Bro. Mike, what are the bases for choosing these candidates? Many of them have their own shoddy past. You group is losing its credibility. I guarantee, your followers will not heed your call. They are thinking sheep, not blind followers.

  • juan_liwanag

    Hindi ba tahasang paglabag ng Saligang Batas ang ginagawang ito ni Mike Velarde? Kagaya rin ito ng iba pang relihiyon na nakikialam sa politika, di ba?

    Nang-iimpluwensya talaga lagi ang mga religious groups na ito, as if mga credible na kandidato naman ang mga dinadala.

    • prince_janus

      ewan ko ba kung iboboto rin ng mga membro nya! otherwise mga uto-uto talaga ang mga kasapi nito. kung titingnan mo yung pino-push nya ay di katanggap-tangap.

  • ruben_bush

    wag nga kayong makialam sa politics. itong si velarde lagi nalang pro-erap..kahit noong kumurakot na si erap, ganun pa rin siya. pro-life kuno…pero inindorse niya pro-death…si gringo honasan??? pro life ba yan?? ilan ang namatay sa kanyang mga coup d ‘etat???? ilan ang tinorture at pinatay ng RAM ??? Olalia, Alay-ay, Lean Alejandro at marami pang iba. Pro-life ba si Mitos Magsaysay??? Eh di ba noong panahon ni GMA talagang dikit tuko yan kay GMA. Pinagtatanggol pa niya ang mga pagnanakaw ni GMA. Pro-Life ba yung magnakaw ng kaban ng bayan, habang ang mas na kararami ay namamatay sa gutom?????

    velarde, they gave you how much..? balato naman sa mga tao..!

    Sa ganang akin, tumulad na lang sana ang Roman Catholic Church sa Iglesia Ni Cristo na walang kiyaw-kiyaw sa pag-eendorso ng mga napili nitong kandidato. Maglabas na lang sana ang CBCP ng opisyal nitong kandidato o sample ballot at ipamudmod sa simbahan na parang estampita at prayer leaflet. Marami pa kasing tse-tse buretse at mga pa-Team Patay at team-Buhay eh alam naman ng lahat may gustong ipapanalo at ipapanalo ang CBCP. Helloooow, maging totoo na lang sana po tayo mga obispo, huwag na kayong magpakiyeme at ginagawa pang pronta si Mike Velarde. Hala, sulat na kayo ng pastoral letter, basahin sa lahat ng simbahan mula Aparri hanggang Jolo ang inyong mga kandidato ay mamudmod ng sample ballot pagkatapos ng misa. It’s ok, we understand. Get’s nyo?

    pimentel, trillianes, villar are anti-RH candidates. as such, they either lose touch of the realities of being poor, or just simply playing safe and succumb to the pressure of the damasos, as well as ride front seat on the deceptions of mike velarde’s el shaddie.

    Magdala din kaya sila ng payong na kanilang babaliktarin para sumahod sa grasiya na magmula sa anting-anting ni mike velarde?

    There are many sincere and capable PRO-RH candidates to choose from. So why should the PRO-RH people vote for these anti-RH candidates who do not even represent the pro-RH voters? These anti-RH candidates even signed a covenant with mike velarde to cripple the RH bill once elected.

    Discard the anti-RH candidates. Let us ensure that the RH bill will not be bastardized by them at the prodding of damasos and velarde’s black magic.

      Shut up

    Velarde is a modern day Pharisee who do not practice what he preaches. He is a hypocrite and an opportunist who connive with dirty politicians for his own personal interest. This Mike velarde should be exposed for what he is a pseudo religious leader just like Quiboloy, Manalo, and many other modern day false prophets who will mislead the people!

  • jgl414567

    Shame on you Mr. Velarde you got rich by using the name of God in vain for your personal interest God will reserve the harshest punishment for you for misleading his flock!! Buhay ka pa sinusunog na kaluluwa mo. You are the modern day Judas Iscariot!

  • Laundryman

    This “ALL SHALL DIE” leader is indeed first class arrogant. He doesn’t want to be just a “Kingmaker”…he wants to make his king his “Puppet.”

  • Sarkasmos

    Like trapo politicians, Velarde wants the poor to multiply because they are the most gullible and most vulnerable to false promises and assorted impostors and liars.
