“GMA is what we need in this time to keep the house in order”, says NYU alumna

Besides admitting to criticizing former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in the past for her corruption in her administration, writer Krizette Laureta Chu said that the former's rise to the position of House Speaker of Congress is tactical in order to defeat greater evils.

Chu said that the promotion of the former President who was incarcerated after her term for graft and corruption, only to get back into politics as Pampanga's 2nd district representative, was only appropriate, Arroyo being the best among her colleagues in the House of Representatives.

"Do I have an issue with GMA, who I said were corrupt during her time as  President, being House Speaker? Do I have an issue with the FBI giving immunity to criminals in exchange for testimonies that will help bring down a major crime boss? Do I have an issue with Brooklyn 99 giving car thief Doug Judy immunity to take down a murderer?,"

Answering her own question, she said "Of course not. I’m idealistic, not stupid."

Chu said that Arroyo is the House of Representatives' most capable.

She added that the former President will help in the shifting of the country into a federal republic.

"She is what we need in this time to keep the house in order. Sometimes you have to collude with gremlins to take down devils. Don't get your panties in a twist. After all, Noynoying didn't even make sure she was properly jailed. So now she's a free woman, and free to take down all of them," the known President Rodrigo Duterte supporter said.
"When you deny that GMA was ever corrupt (kahit konti, talaga lang?) and chock it all up to the "Yellows" and their "black ops," then you've fallen into the trap of the Yellows we all hate. The ones who cover up for each other. The ones who would rather push their own agenda than make sure the country is moving forward. We are becoming the monsters we hate. Si Duterte nga, never sinabi na HINDI CORRUPT SI GLORIA. So kung hindi corrupt si Gloria, bat nyo sinasabi dati na kakaiba si Duterte because he's the only President who would not steal from us? Kung ganon din naman pala si Gloria?" she added.

Arroyo was declared as House Speakermoments before the State of the Nation Address of President Duterte on Monday.

When President Rodrigo Duterte arrived at Batasan for his State of the Nation Address (SONA), before 4 pm, it was still Alvarez who welcomed him, along with Senate President Vicente Sotto III.

However, Duterte's SONA was delayed for over an hour when according to sources, he had to talk to both Alvarez and Arroyo.

Presidential daughter and Davao Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio allegedly backed Arroyo. She had launched a series of tirades against Alvarez in February after the former speaker supposedly told the media she and her father were feuding and that she formed her regional political party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago, without his blessing.

The manifesto for Alvarez' ouster got 161 votes from members of the House.

Talks of a possible change in the House leadership first surfaced after Alvarez filed a graft complaint against his longtime friend turned foe, Davao del Norte 2nd District Representative Antonio Floirendo Jr, on March 13, 2017. Floirendo was Duterte's biggest campaign donor.

Of course not.


I’m idealistic, not stupid.


GMA is the more capable of all the Congress people, and she was elected by her fellow Kapampangans, and she will be essential in the fight to make Federalism—the single most important issue of our generation—happen.


She is what we need in this time to keep the house in order.


Sometimes you have to collude with gremlins to take down devils.


Don't get your panties in a twist. After all, Noynoying didn't even make sure she was properly jailed. So now she's a free woman, and free to take down all of them.
