2022: NO WIN in sight for Lacson and SECURITY CLUSTER candidates

EDSA 1 heroes Fidel V. Ramos became president of the Philippines while Juan Ponce Enrile and Gringo Honasan became senators. So too Marine General Rodolfo Biazon, who defended the Republic against Honasan military adventurisms. From the ranks of the Philippine National Police, Robert Barbers, Alfredo Lim and Panfilo Lacson became senators. Rebel soldier Antonio Trillanes was elected senator too. Thus, the security cluster (military and police) has been adequately represented in the Upper Chamber of the legislature.

For the 2022 presidential elections, we have Senator Ping Lacson running for President. His chances of electoral victory are almost nil since he is currently in 5th place and very far behind in the poll surveys.

Former Department of National Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro ran for President in 2010 as the standard bearer of the then Gloria Macapagal Arroyo administration. Gibo finished a very poor 4th place. In 2016, President Duterte was forming his Cabinet and announced in a press conference that he wanted Gibo to be his DND Secretary. Gibo declined the offer from the President. Then in 2021, when presidential daughter Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte was contemplating a 2022 presidential run, Gibo, from out of the blue, showed up in Davao to present himself as Sara’s vice presidential bet. Sara is running for vice president while Gibo is running for senator. Less than three months before the May elections, Inday Sara is leading the vice presidential race by a comfortable margin while Gibo is nowhere to be found in the Magic 12 or even in those with a slight chance of winning.

Former senators Trillanes (no chance) and Honasan (slight chance) need lots of extra push and good luck to be able to return to the Senate. Former PNP chief Guillermo Eleazar is destined to fail in his Senate quest. PMAer (Philippine Military Academy) and Duterte Cabinet member John Castriciones is staring at inevitable defeat. It did not help his cause by jumping over to the Isko Moreno for President camp. The majority of voters are in the Digong-BBM-Sara side so all Sec John had to do was to woo the pro-government citizens (President Duterte endorsed him for senator).

There you have it, the fearless forecast is a big ZERO for the security cluster for the 2022 national elections.

The Belmonte family has been the dominant force in Quezon City politics for the past 30 years when the patriarch Sonny Belmonte, SB for short, started out as a three term district (QC 4th, 1992 – 2001) congressman, then shifted (due to term limits) to run and win as Quezon City mayor, again for the maximum three consecutive terms (2001 – 2010) and went back to the House of Representatives (2010 – 2019). All through these years Belmonte relatives were and still are active in various capacities – district congressmen, city councilors and even as party list representative running under the Belmonte dynasty controlled SB (what else?) party.

The top position in Quezon City is that of mayor, that SB held for nine years. When his vice mayor Bistek Bautista ran for mayor, SB’s daughter was fielded to run for vice mayor. Both won, as expected. In Quezon City, SB is the master political strategist forming alliances ensuring victory even before the votes are cast. In 2019, after the Bistek Joy tandem had served out their own three consecutive terms, Joy ran and won as mayor. Unfortunately, the daughter did not inherit the political savvy of the father. SB had to work his way to the top and relied on many allies and horse trading to achieve his victories (he was House Speaker for many years). Joy got her plum position on a silver platter being the daughter of SB, thus inheriting the city chief executive crown. In true dynastic fashion, a multitude of relatives occupy elective and appointive positions. Politics is truly a family business.

The pandemic really brought out the worst in the new mayor (at the same time that other first term mayors in Manila, Pasig and San Juan were creating waves in initiatives, creativity, efficiency and performance in public service). Patented temper tantrums mark the rule of the possessed woman. As she now runs for her second term, a confluence of events makes her re-election a lot more difficult. Bong Bong Marcos is leading all presidential surveys. He is running under the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas. Ironically, prior to BBM’s sudden entry into that obscure national political party, Joy Belmonte was the NCR Chairperson of PFP. In a sudden twist of events, BBM endorsed Congressman Mike Defensor as the PFP standard bearer for Quezon City. Quezon City is a major BBM bailiwick and his anointed one for Quezon City will sway multitudes of voters to the Defensor side. Kingpins Bingbong Crisologo and Winnie Castelo (who has his own QC dynasty) are in the Defensor ticket.

Dynasties, sooner or later, end. Aside from Joy there are still relatives running for local office and they may still win a number of positions. In 2019, the Belmontes lost a councilor seat in District 1. Their SB party list nominees also failed to land a seat (up to a maximum of three per party list) thus giving up the seat they previously held. Should Joy lose as mayor in 2022, it would be the equivalent of a dynastic decapitation as she currently holds the highest elective position among the Belmontes. It could break the heart of the aging patriarch, SB, who built an empire only to see it crumble but he only has his daughter to blame.

2022 LP senatorial chances – 5 winners? De Lima (OUT?), Hontiveros (IN?), Trillanes (OUT?) and Escudero, Binay, Zubiri and Villanueva (all IN?)

With the 2022 presidential elections fast approaching, we weigh the chances of the current opposition in the forthcoming senatorial contest. Jailed senator Liela de Lima and comebacking senator Antonio Trillanes are not registering well in most surveys while Risa Hontiveros has a good chance of retaining her seat.

The Liberal Party has included proven vote getters (Escudero, former VP Binay, Gordon, Zubiri and Villanueva) in their senatorial ticket thus assuring that there will be no repeat of their 2019 mid term debacle wherein they got ZERO out of eight contenders (Otso Diretso sa Inidoro). Escudero, Binay, Zubiri, Villanueva and Hontiveros will most likely land in the Magic 12.

The YELLOW party standard bearer for the presidency, VP Leni Robredo, is a distant second in surveys while vice presidential candidate Senator Kiko Pangilinan is third in the pre-election preferences.

YELLOWTARD Quarantine violator party goer calls Du30 INCOMPETENT

Instant celebrity Gwyneth Chua who skipped her mandatory quarantine to go partying then tested positive for Covid 19 and in the process infecting her friends and resto bar staff, has a lot of anger frothing from her social media post. 1. She just called the hard working Philippine President Duterte as INCOMPETENT 2. She stated that FRONTLINERS are LAZY 3. She said that the Philippines is KJ (killjoy) and walang pakisama (no camaraderie) referring to party restrictions and protocols. 4. She dismissed her irresponsible behavior as “simpleng party lang” (it was just a mere party) as if to minimize the public health hazard that she has caused. 5. She also considers the fuss she is generating as an over reaction (OA or over acting).

At the very least, she has a lot of explaining to do, hopefully, in a court of law.

SUPER SPREADER – Covid quarantine violator

Gwyneth Chua arrived from the United States and checked into an accredited hotel for her mandatory quarantine due to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, she slipped out of the facility to go out to paint the town red. The party animal later tested positive for the disease and contact tracing exposed her path of destruction. She is currently being investigated with possible charges being brought out against her.

BUHAY Party List – El Shaddai’s Brother Mike Velarde WITHDRAWS support

Two time Philippine elections party list topnotcher BUHAY with a Velarde sitting in Congress from 2001 to 2019 is in deep trouble. Having three representatives in the years (2007, 2013) that Buhay came out on top, the rest of the elections participated in netted two representatives (2001, 2004, 2010, 2016). However, in 2019, former Manila City Mayor Lito Atienza was the lone BUHAY winner. Atienza is currently serving his third term (2013, 2016 and 2019) as a BUHAY party list congressman and he is running for vice president in 2022. 2019 was the first time since 2001 that no Velarde won as a party list representative since the Velarde nominee was only listed second, with Atienza listed first, and BUHAY only secured one seat.

Atienza asked for the help of the Charismatic leader Brother Mike in the 2001 party list elections with the agreement that Brother Mike would choose the nominees. Atienza was the BUHAY second nominee in 2013 and 2016 and won both times. For 2019, Atienza requested Brother Mike for him (Mayor Lito) to run as the BUHAY first nominee (perhaps to ensure that he would win a third consecutive term). Brother Mike agreed and Congressman Atienza got his third term through BUHAY. Brother Mike thought that the initial 2001 agreement was still in place and that he would put a son of his as the first nominee for 2022. Party List representative Lito Atienza had other plans. Since he is barred by the Philippine Constitution from running for a fourth consecutive Congressional seat as well as having plans for higher office in 2022, Atienza put his son-in-law as BUHAY’s first nominee for 2022. The Velarde family (Brother Mike and two of his sons who had previously been BUHAY Congressmen) pulled out of the party list that had a spectacular past because of Brother Mike and the hordes of El Shaddai faithful.

Without Brother Mike and with Lito Atienza running for vice president in 2022, it would be worth watching if BUHAY party list would be able to regain the glory it once had from the 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 elections. A single winner in 2019 is the lowest point of BUHAY at this time. For 2022, BUHAY can retain its single seat (getting two or three seats as in elections past is totally unthinkable) or BUHAY may not succeed in getting a single seat as the Brother Mike Velarde drawing power is no longer there.

To date FOUR in that DRUG MATRIX are dead. 1. Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. (killed in a raid on his house in 2017, together with his wife, brother Octavio Jr., sister and nephew among more than a dozen who died in that police operation. 2. Richard Parojinog who died in jail in 2020. 3. Clarin Mayor David Navarro who was killed in an ambush in Cebu in 2019 and now 4.

UPDATE on 2016 Parojinog DRUG Matrix – 3 DEAD, 1 recently shot in the head and 2 in jail

The recent SNIPER ambush against Lopez Jaena, Misamis Occidental Mayor Michael Gutierrez adds another chapter to the violent and deadly incidents that followed the release of the Misamis Occidental DRUG MATRIX headed by then Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. Taking their roots from the Kuratong Baleleng bank robbery and kidnap for ransom gang, the second generation Parojinogs were able to use their ill gotten wealth to fund a Robin Hood persona of giving money to the poor, generating mass appeal and later entering politics. Loads and loads of cash came from illegal gambling and drugs.

By the entry of the Rodrigo Duterte administration in 2016, Reynaldo Parojinog controlled not only Ozamiz City as mayor with his daughter Nova Princess as vice mayor but also at least 8 town mayors in the province. Octavio Parojinog Jr was a member of the Misamis Occidental Provincial Board. In 2017, the house of Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. was raided with the deaths of Reynaldo Sr., his wife, his brother (Octavio Jr), his sister and a nephew among more that a dozen killed in the police operation.

Reynaldo’s son, Reynaldo Jr., and Vice Mayor daughter are both currently in jail. High profile Herbert Colangco, reputedly in a relationship with Nova Princess, is also in jail. Richard Parojinog died while in prison.

Among the non-Parojinog second liners, the more prominent names being mentioned are 1. Clarin Mayor David Navarro (said to be a member of Kuratong Baleleng together with Reynaldo Sr.). Navarro was killed in an ambush in Cebu City in 2019. 2. Sinacaban Mayor Cris Mahilac went viral after photos were made public wherein his house was plastered with PHP 1000 and PHP 500 bills which were used as wall paper. His wife is an avid luxury brand (Hermes among others) hand bag collector with lots of pictures to prove it too. 3. Lopez Jaena Mayor Michael Gutierrez is the CRYING local chief executive for weeping shamelessly after being named as a drug lord or drug lord protector. With Mayor Gutierrez being sidelined after being shot in the head, Mayor Cris Mahilac is now the most well known Parojinog associate that has avoided a BULLET in his body.

Lacson – Siguradong TALUNAN, bakit pa tumatakbo?

Bagamat malayo pa ang Halalan 2022 at marami pang maaring mangyare, may mga kandidato na sa ngayon ay malabo nang manalo. Sa pagkapangulo, sa limang sikat na mga kalahok, si Senator Ping Lacson ang nahuhuli at tila hindi na kayang paakyatin pa ang kanyang mga numero. Batid ng lahat na mayroon siyang mga masugid na mga tagasuporta at nasa ilang milyon din ang kayang hakutin ni Ping na mga boto, pero nakapako pa rin siya sa number 5. Kung sa pagkasenador lang siya tumakbo ay sigurado naman siyang mananalo kaya ang tanong ng lahat ay bakit pa nagaambisyon sa mas mataas na posisyon na may pagkatalo (dati na siyang hindi pinalad sa kampanyang pangpresidente) at hindi na nakuntento sa pagkasenador.

Batay sa mga sarili niyang mga pananalita, ang pinagpilian niya ay kung tatakbo ba sa pagkapresidente o magpapahinga muna siya sa pulitika. Hindi kasali ang pagtakbo muli sa pagkasenador sa kanyang pinagpilian. Tila nagpapahayag siya ng pagkasawa sa Senado kung saan isa lamang siya sa 24 na puro talumpati at debate ang ginagawa kaya gusto niya maging punong abala ng buong Pilipinas kung saan siya ang magpapatakbo ng pamahalaan sa halip na gumawa ng batas.

SIGN of WEAKNESS: Chel Diokno debate challenge to President Duterte

2019 Otso Diretso sa Inidoro Liberal Party losing candidate Chel Diokno is running for the Senate once more in 2022. Having largely been ignored by the voting public by finishing in number 21 position in the midterm elections with more than six million votes, Diokno was eight million votes shy of the Magic 12 list of winners.

For 2022, Diokno is again badly trailing behind in poll surveys. Perhaps as an indication of desperation, Chel Diokno issued a challenge to debate with President Duterte (who at some point indicated an intention to run for vice president then slid down to run for senator but finally backed out from running for national office in 2022).

Had President Digong accepted the Diokno challenge, Chel would have already won political points even before the actual debate started. Had the debate pushed through and had Chel given a good account of himself, then more voters may have considered putting him in their ballots in May 2022. But it was NOT to be. President Duterte, the veteran politician, did not bite. Digong had nothing to gain even if he had demolished Chel in the debate. If Chel managed to score debate points, then he would have shouted out to the whole world that he had beaten Du30 (in a debate) and he would crow about it throughout the whole campaign period. If Chel was beaten, gored and mauled by President Duterte in the verbal tussle, Chel would then package himself as the victim of persecution by the current administration and appeal to the Filipino electorate propensity of rooting for the underdog.

Challenging the President of the Republic of the Philippines to a debate was a crude campaign gimmick done by a political pygmy (who wants to come out as a David) against Duterte alias Goliath. Only losers and the powerless resort to such cheap tricks and it only further exposed the Chel Diokno WEAKNESS.
