Pangilinan mocks ‘Red October’ ouster plot
Sen. Francis Pangilinan has mocked the “Red October” plot which is supposedly a plot hatched by the Liberal Party (LP) and the communists to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Red October daw ang pangalan ng nadiskubreng ouster plot ng mga komunista at ng LP laban sa administrasyong Duterte base sa intelligence reports. Kung ikaw ang may masamang balak, babanggitin mo ba ang oras o panahon ng iyong masamang balak?” Pangilinan said in a tweet on Thursday.
(The ouster plot against the Duterte administration by the communists and the LP is called Red October based on intelligence reports. If you have an evil plan, will you announce the time when your evil plan will happen?)
“Babansagan mo ba ang kulay pula para tiyak na malalaman na ikaw ang nasa likod ng masamang balak? (Will you give the plot a Red color to make it known that you are the mastermind behind the evil plan?”)
Pangilinan said intelligence funds by the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Malacañang might have been used to mislead people on the alleged ouster plot.
“Dito ba napupunta ang bilyun-bilyon na intelligence funds ng Malacañang at Armed Forces of the Philippines [AFP]? Nililinlang lang ang taumbayan sa mga gawa-gawang kwento? Kalokohan!” he said.
(Is this where the billions of intelligence funds of Malacañang and the AFP are going? They are just deceiving the people with their made-up stories? How foolish!)
Pangilinan also advised government to offer solutions to boost employment and higher salaries and address the spiraling prices of goods.
“Sa halip ay ilahad ang konkretong mga hakbang para sa dagdag na trabaho, dagdag na kita at agarang pagresolba sa walang tigil na pagtaas ng presyo ng mga bilihin! (Instead, show concrete steps to create more jobs, salary increase and resolve immediately the non-stop price increase of goods!)” he said.
Red October daw ang pangalan ng nadiskubreng ouster plot ng mga komunista at ng LP laban sa administrasyong Duterte base sa intelligence reports.

On Sept. 11, in a televised conversation with Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo, Duterte said he has evidence to prove that his political opponents, the communists and Magdalo members are planning to oust him. /muf
