In a short video taken at a news conference on Monday, former President Fidel V. Ramos claimed that the late President Ferdinand Marcos’s wife, former first lady Imelda Marcos is a living witness to the entirety of his husband’s dictatorial leadership.

The video showed that Ramos suggested Imelda has legitimate and genuine information about the assassination of late Senator Ninoy Aquino Jr., in time for his 35th Death Anniversary, but refused to enhance the details of the matter.


Ramos, during the interview, can be seen gesturing persuasion while having a dialogue with the press saying, “But in terms of the apology that I requested, it was not from Irene. It was from the mother, the head of the family...who knew everything! Including the beginning of Martial Law, including the good years before Martial Law, including what must have happened in August 1983.”

The hasty burial of Marcos’ remains in the ‘Libingan ng mga Bayani’ after being flown from Ilocos Norte on November 2016 met strong oppositions taking critics to protest their way to the streets almost immediately to contradict a ‘Heroes’ Burial’ dedicated to the late strongman ‘dictator’.

Reports revealed that media entities were present the said cemetery with the knowledge that there would only be a ‘rehearsal burial’ until the sudden arrival of Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa, confirming the official burial event, citing the Marcos family’s request for a ‘simple and private’ funeral rites.

The Supreme Court has finally ruled 9-5 with one abstention on November 8, 2016 granting the burial of Marcos’ body the Hero’s Cemetery after several extensions.

Wellie Weling: I hope this people will tell all the stories they know about this case before they die. Para maliwagan man lang ang mga tao and most specially those soldiers who were convicted na inutosan lang sila.

Rayver Santos: knowledge pero sino ba talaga . Si Ramos daw ang may pakana niya yung Theory kasi hindi siya inindorse ni Cory si Mitra ang bata ni Cory pero dinaya si Mirriam .... yan ang sabi sabi ng mga bubwit... HUWAATTTTT

Rich Sevilla: Nyahaha! Nagpapatawa si Tabako! Philstar, hanggang ngayon tanga pa rin kayo. Alam ng lahat kung sino nagpapatay sa pekendos na hero na yan. Kaya nga Simeon ang gamit na middle name ni Abnoy dahil hindi nya maatim gamitin ang Cojuangco dahil alam nya mismo kung sino.

During the sidelines of his father’s 35th Death Anniversary on Tuesday, August 21 2018, former President Noynoy Aquino admitted having to call a few senators to inquire about the “extent of their knowledge” on the controversial Dengvaxia shambles.

In a chance interview, Aquino pointed out that he is only “making sure” that panel members are cognizant of undisclosed issues in the senate hearings.


“May mga puntong hindi nagkaroon ng pagkakataong mailabas doon [sa hearing.] Naninigurado lang tayo na malaman nung ibang mga miyembro ng committee ‘yung mga hindi naitalakay sa hearing eh mapagbigyang pansin naman,” Aquino said.

Seeing no deceitful motive on his actions, Aquino did not name-drop the Senators he called for inquiry in the past 2 weeks, in a petition to ‘delete’ the recommended criminal charges against him.

“Masama ba ‘yun na mailabas itong mga puntong ito doon sa mga taong huhubog ng committee report?” he lamented.

“[Mga senador] na lang magsabi [kung tinawagan sila.] Pero, bawal ba ‘yun?” Aquino said.

“Maski ano pang sabihin ko, papanigan nitong mga senador itong tama,” he added, insisting that Senators would side with what is right regardless of his dictation.

One that attested to Aquino’s action was Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Chairman Richard Gordon but refused to name even a few. Along with Senators Grace Poe and Chiz Escudero, Gordon denied having been recipients of Aquino’s call but four sources from the Senate cited Senators Cynthia Villar and Loren Legarda were among those whom Aquino phoned.

The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee’s joint report with the Health and Finance Committees proposed criminal charges upon Aquino for his alleged misfeasance, malfeasance, nonfeasance and supposed violations of Section 3(a) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and Section 4(b) of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

Aquino’s Cabinet officials, along with some government doctors are also tagged with criminal and administrative charges for their involvement in the Anti – Dengue controversy amounting to P3.5 Billion.

Meanwhile, of the 830,000 young children who have been injected with Dengvaxia vaccine, Aquino insisted that only 166 of those would be contracted with ‘serious disease’.

“Ang hinahabol ko lang doon kasi, parang sa hysteriang crineate. Noong isang araw, isang araw sa [Department of Health] ang nagsabi na 60,000 na raw ang dengue cases ngayon. Now, sa pananakot na ginawa, ang daming pwede sanang na-prevent doon sa measles na hindi na-prevent dahil nga tinakot,” Aquino said.

Don't go just yet! Joma Sison hopes Duterte lives long enough to receive arrest warrant

Manila, Philippines – After President Rodrigo Duterte appeared on SAP Bong Go’s Facebook live on Monday, Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison said he is relieved to see Duterte alive.

Sison, on August 21 said that he was “pleased” to see the chief executive alive because there’s still a chance he will be held accountable for his supposed crimes against the people and tried by the International Criminal Court.


“Unlike him, I do not have any death wish for Duterte. In fact, I wish him to live long enough to receive a warrant of arrest, unlike the so many thousands of victims of Oplans Tokhang and Kapayapaan,” the communist leader said in a statement.

On his live video, the president turned the tables on the CPP founder, saying it was Sison who could be sick.

In his defense, Sison clarified that he never confirmed that Duterte was in coma.

“I never claimed it to be certainly true but I cautioned the readers of my Facebook Timeline that the report is subject to verification or negation by the public appearance of Duterte and by credible medical bulletin,” he said.

Sison cited that he is gratified to know that he Facebook live video posted by Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go showed Duterte “truly looking very tired and dispirited, his face still very dark and his right eye drooping.”

“He looks like he just came from dialysis or some other kind of treatment on Sunday,” the communist leader said.

Meanwhile, President's daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio criticized Sison over his initial claim that Duterte slipped into a coma.*

In a statement, Duterte-Carpio first recalled how the CPP founder sent her chocolates and a note "some years ago," a surprise that sent a "rational and pleasant" message.

With that, now after Sison’s fake claims on the president’s health condition, it made her think that whether it was really the communist leader who made the claims or maybe it was only his caretaker.

"His recent Facebook posts about the dying PRD (President Rodrigo Duterte) is not rational and napaisip ako kung siya ba ang nagpost or baka caretaker na lang ni Joma," the Davao city mayor said.

"My guess is, at the rate that he or his caretaker is unraveling, he will soon say PRD is not human but an alien in the form of Rodrigo Duterte," Duterte-Carpio also said.

Agad na nakilala ang suspek na si Jessa Mae Felias, residente ng Parañaque City, base sa kuha ng CCTV footage ng naturang establisyemento. Kitang – kita kung paano hinablot nalang bigla ng dalaga ang cellphone mula sa bag ng kanyang biktima habang abala itong nagbabayad sa cashier. Mabilis namang nawala sa eksena ang dalaga.


Lingid naman sa kaalaman ng maraming tao sa paligid ang pangyayari nang dahil mabilis nitong naisagawa ang pagnanakaw.

Isang uri naman daw ng kapansanan ang pagnanakaw na ginawa ng mga uri ni Felias, ayon kay Maila Div. Sa kanyang komento, sinabi nito na “Some rich kids are clypto maniacs. They can afford it,but they like to steal it.”

Samantala, todo – tanggi naman itong si #Ateng kung kanilang tawagin sa pangyayari at sinabing napagkamalan lamang siya sa babaeng nakita sa CCTV.

Bicol Peace and Order Council: PRRD tagging Naga City as ‘shabu hotbed’ backed up by data

August 20, 2018

Bicol Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) chairman and Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosa believes that President Rodrigo Duterte’s tagging of Naga as a “shabu hotbed” was backed up by data and might have basis.

Rosal said that it was not impossible for a major city to have the presence of illegal drugs.

 “Hindi ako makakapagsabi kung totoo o hindi, pero ang masasabi ko lang dyan hindi imposible na may droga basta major cities. Everywhere you go, even in Legazpi, hindi ko yan pwede itago. Kaya nga continuous ang operations natin, as a matter of fact I would like to commend the PNP kasi we are moving forward na. Madami na tayong nahuli, not just small but big ones, almost more than 10 million na rin yung nakuha natin sa Legazpi,” Rosal said.


He pointed out that President Duterte’s statement must be based on reports from government agencies like Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Dangerous Drugs Board.

“Sa ngayon we cannot contradict, kahit saan talaga may droga. Sa Legazpi may nahuhuli, may surrenderees. But I agree with the hierarchy of the DILG at Dangerous Drugs Board, si Secretary Cuy, si Secretary Año ng DILG na syempre, continuous pa yung validation kung gaano kalaki talaga, kasi na-declare yan ng presidente based on reports naman yan,” the Legazpi mayor said.

Rosal said that the most urgent matter now is to determine how deep the so-called “hotbed” is in Naga City.

“Ang pinaka-issue na lang ngayon ay kung gaano kalalim yung hotbed talaga. Pero syempre, normal lang yung reaction ng mga taga Naga especially yung council. Papano na ngayon yung status mo as a city, but you cannot discount the statement of the president.” He said.*

 Kailangan lang, itong mga taga DILG, Dangerous Drugs Board should see to it na yung statement ay may basehan,” Rosal added.

Malacanang said on Monday that there was no need for the president to show proof to the public that the home province of Vice President Leni Robredo was a breeding ground for shabu.

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said that if Naga City officials strongly believe that Duterte’s remark is false, then they have to prove it otherwise.

“He doesn’t have to do that. He already has access to information. He said it. Let it be,” Roque said in a press briefing after being asked whether the president will show proof to back his claim.

“Kung sa tingin nila mali ang Presidente, hindi hotbed of… shabu ang Naga, patunayan nila. Labanan nila yung mga nagbebenta ng droga sa Naga at patunayan nila hindi talaga hotbed of shabu,” the spokesman reiterated.

Meanwhile, Robredo and Naga City Mayor John Bongat said on August 19 that the city council will file a Resolution of Indignation to condemn Duterte’s accusation.

“(A)ccusations like that is an insult against those from Naga. That’s unfair. That is why we are protesting this in the strongest of terms,” Robredo said.

“This morning, the city council gave me their Resolution of Indignation for (the damage) done to the reputation of Naga. We will not take this sitting down.” She added.
