The Impeachment Process: Another People Power In The Works?

A few minutes ago, I was watching the debates for the impeachment procedures. There are only a few more signatures needed for the impeachment complaints to be handed on to the Senate, and so there were powerful media presentations played during the discussions so as to drum up more support for the...

Laughable Politics In Action

Today's sessions on the Jueteng investigations and the Impeachment Case can be described as a Moro-moro under the big top. Both were laughable instances of a system that has lost its bearings. Panfilo Lacson calls himself "Mr. Exposé" but today's Jueteng investigation showed him only as a rumor... Sign in to see full entry.

Gloria's Impeachment

It is interesting how many words one can draw from the word "impeachment" -- peach, peace, imp, pea, each, net, neat, heat, mean, man, men, pit, team, ten, hit, hip, heap,... can you find more? This word play wouldn't be amusing if not for the fact that even the impeachment case filed against... Sign in to see full entry.

Gloria Hits Back

She has the machinery, no doubt about it. She has the guts to face her detractors, no doubt about it. Aquilino Pimentel may have said something true about what the President intends to do when she asks for a charter change made by a constituent assembly: to perpetuate herself in power. The...

Gloria's State of the Nation Address: My Thoughts

Last Monday (July 25, 2005), President Macapagal-Arroyo delivered her State Of the Nation Address (SONA). Commentators beholden to the present administration have described it as brief, clear, courageous, sincere and to the point. Those who continue to oppose the President have noted the fact that...

Opposition Seethes While Pro-Administration Groups Rejoice

Last Saturday, the "Gathering for Peace, Unity and the Rule of Law" was held at the historic Luneta Park. More than 200,000 rallyists came to participate in what turned out into a prayer assembly that lasted for three and a half hours (2 PM - 5:30 PM). Organizers expressed their satisfaction at the...

More Melodrama In Philippine Politics ...

... or are we seeing a Moro-moro conspiracy? When Chavit Singson brought out the wire tapped converation between former President Erap Estrada and two alleged henchmen (one of whom was his AFP Chief of Staff, Nazareno), he was just continuing a melodrama the first episode of which was the "Hello...

The Battle of the Tapes

So it has come down to this... first came "Hello Garci", now it is a wiretapped conversation involving deposed President Estrada. At 4PM today, Chavit Singson called for a Press Conference at the Sulo Hotel. In that presscon he presented to the public another wiretapped conversation burned into a... Sign in to see full entry.

Mother of All Rallies Fizzles Out

The "mother of all rallies" turned out to be a rather small rally. Out of the one million who were expected to come, only about thirty to twenty thousand attended. It is perhaps this small turn out that prompted the organizers to schedule another protest rally on July 25, just a few days before the... Sign in to see full entry.
