‘Pag hindi na-impeach si Corona Enrile, nakahandang makudeta

HANDA UMANO si Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile na mapatalsik sa puwesto sakaling hindi magtagumpay ang pagpapa-impeach kay Chief Justice Renato Corona. Simula pa noong 2008, hinihintay na nito ang kanyang magiging kapalit.

“I will welcome any replacement,” ayon sa senador.

Makailang beses na ring lumutang ang alingasngas sa Senado na iku-kudeta si Enrile simula pa nang kinontra nito ang kontrobersiyal na Reproductive Health (RH) Bill na isinusulong ng Palasyo.

Ipakita ng mga sinasabing magpapatalsik sa kanya ang numero ng panibagong mayorya sa Senado upang siya ay kusang bababa bilang pangulo ng Senado, ani Enrile.

Sa impeachment case ni Corona, tiniyak ng senador na magiging patas at walang papanigan sa paglilitis sa punong mahistrado.

“We will be objective. At least, I can speak for myself that’s why I do not want to listen to any discussions. I want to have an open, clean, serene mind,” dagdag pa ni Enrile.

Kailangan ang boto ng 16 na senador upang tuluyang mapatalsik sa puwesto si Corona.

Nabatid na apat ang miyembro ng Liberal Party (LP) ni Pangulong Aquino sa Senado, bukod pa sa dalawang kaalyado nito na sina Sen. Chiz Escudero at Sen. Serge Osmeña.

  1. TIME TO REVISIT TAG ON NINOY AQUINO AS NATIONAL HERO.by Ed Malay
    Except for what I have written about Ninoy Aquino, I no longer want to add anything as I am one person who respects the soul of a person especially one who is long dead. But if there is something that I may say with regards to what the late Ninoy Aquino represents it is the word ambition written all over him.

    Prior to martial law, then Pres. Ferdinand Marcos launched what was then an ambitious plan to occupy Sabah which historically and ancestrally is part of the Philippines. Hundreds of Filipinos were recruited and trained. Many were already sent to Sabah as an advance force. While the plan may be unorthodox and which may constitute an act of war, the objective was noble for it was to regain a territory which in the first place belongs to the Philippines.

    The operation was to have been finalized when then Sen. Ninoy Aquino rose on the floor of the Senate and exposed the plan that was then labeled as Operation Jabidah. The plan came to public view when several men who were training escaped from the training facility and were shot while escaping and Ninoy Aquino used this as basis for his privilege speech. Again, this plot to regain Sabah may have been wrong but these men knew beforehand what they were getting into and knew the risks and took it. This is no different from similar training camps regardless of the kind of ideology under which such facilities are under.

    What happened following Aquino’s expose’ was that the Filipino soldiers who were already in Sabah numbering more than 1,000 were all rounded up by the Malaysian authorities and executed one by one. Some 1,000 Filipino soldiers lost their lives for a noble cause just because an irresponsible and ambitious politician exposed the plot without due regard to the lives of the Filipino soldiers.

    And if one were to do a research on the legislative record of this so-called national hero there is nothing in the archives that would even suggest that Ninoy came close to helping our countrymen except deliver brilliant privilege speeches that demonized then President Ferdinand Marcos while at the same time promoting himself as the messiah that this country needed. Remember too that it was during his time as Governor of Tarlac when the New People’s Army grew to such prominence that it became a serious threat to national security. We’re not saying that Ninoy had a hand in this. We’re just saying the coincidence is striking.

    Then came the historic and dreaded Plaza Miranda bombing during the political meeting of the Liberal Party. The party bigwigs were all there and were almost wiped out when two grenades were lobbed at the stage where the top LP leaders were seated. Senators Jovy Salonga, Gerry Roxas, Rep. Ramon Bagatsing. All the important and top leaders of the LP were there EXCEPT ONE – SEN. NINOY AQUINO. For some reason, Ninoy Aquino was not there, the ONLY ONE among the LP hierarchy who was not there when Plaza Miranda turned into a carnage.

    Pres. Ferdinand Marcos became the most convenient alibi and suspect. For good reason. The LP representing the mainstream Opposition at the time was becoming a thorn on the side of Marcos and eliminating the LP ranks would have been enough justification. But this was later ruled out when subsequent investigations and even a more recent court ruling said that the communist rebels were behind the mass assassination attempt on the LP leaders at Plaza Miranda.

    And the same question raised in 1972 remains. WHERE WAS SEN. NINOY AQUINO AT THE TIME. WHY WAS HE NOT AT PLAZA MIRANDA. WHY WAS IT THAT OF ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE LIBERAL PARTY, SEN. AQUINO WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN LP PRESIDENTIAL TIMBER WAS NOT THERE AT PLAZA MIRANDA.

    There were of course assumptions and assertions that the late Sen. Ninoy Aquino was more than just a friend to the leftist movement. In fact there were even some accounts claiming that Ninoy Aquino was particularly known to New People’s Army chief Kumander Dante although this was never verified.History has a way of rewriting itself.
