In defense of President Arroyo, administration Senators Joker Arroyo and Richard Gordon yesterday took a different tack in their refusal to have the controversial wiretapped conversations probed by the Senate, now saying this move by the political opposition is in aid of another impeachment complaint against Mrs. Arroyo, apart from reiterating their position that probing an illegal wiretap conversations may all land them in jail.
I'm calling BS here. Both Joker and Gordon know na Arroyo will not be impeached because they have the numbers in the House. They don't want the investigation because they know the admin and ISAFP are both guilty of wiretapping Public officials from the admin and opposition. Pati si Cory, Rez Cortez, at Mike Defensor wina-wiretap.
I mean hindi ba sabi ni DJB na pati si Maam Arroyo at Garci ay biktima ng wiretapping. Ayaw ba malaman ni Maam at Hello Garci! kung sino ang nag-utos ng wiretapping sa kanila?
So there's no reason to think na this administration and ISAFP have stopped their spying activities on anti-arroyo groups or individuals and opposition media.
It's probably not possible to impeach Arroyo anymore, kahit na lumabas pa ang additional evidence re ISAFP's wiretapping activities o yung dayaan sa Maguindanao, pero if we can prevent ISAFP from doing any more spying vs the opposition, "enemies of the state", the media and private citizens, and we seriously CLEAN UP the COMELEC of crooked officials-- at least we've done something good in making future administrations more accountable, and helping the elections at the national level more credible.
So to JOker and Gordon, the only way i'll accept your excuse is if you assure the public na hindi na ginagawa ng ISAFP ang ginagawa nila, at hindi na rin niluluto ng iilang rogue COMELEC officials mga election sa national level.
Kuya MLQ3 may not approve of PIng Lacson's latest move, but at least Ping's one guy who takes the mandate to hold the admin, ISAFP, and COMELEC accountable seriously (sana wag na rin magalit si Manuel kay Ping kapag sinimulan na niya ang imbestigasyon sa ninakaw na eleksyon sa Maguindanao. Galit pa nga si de Quiros sa opposition eh for "abandoning" Koko Pimentel raw.)
Sabi ni Commissioner Rene Sarmiento gusto rin raw niya buksan muli ang Hello Garci para malinis ang pangalan ng COMELEC, pero mukhang nagba-bluff lang pala siya
UPDATE: nakalamang ang admin sa EO 464 ruling ng Supreme Court, sabi ni DJB. Pero matagal na nating alam yan. Hindi lang yan, pati yung SC ruling sa CPR lamang rin yung admin.
Pero hangang-hanga si CDQ sa SC ni Arroyo nung time na yon.
