Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s cases filed by a group of lawyers and a businessman are now in the Preliminary Conference stage. Inciting to sedition, proposal to commit coup d’etat and graft raps charges are currently on the roll at the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office. This is allegedly for encouraging the military to kill the President. Complainants are lawyers Eligio Mallari, Glenn Chong, Nestor Ifurung, Jacinto Paras, Eduardo Bringas, Nasser Marohomsalic and businessman Louis Biraogo.
[VIDEO]: A team of lawyers including Atty. Glenn Chong, the clean election advocate has filed numerous cases against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV that include inciting to sedition. It is now in the Preliminary Conference stage.
Php 2 Billion Bank Account
The complaint stemmed from Trillanes’ October 3 privilege speech. He accused Du30 of having bank transactions of more than P2 billion from 2006 to 2015. Trillanes made no direct appeal for soldiers to kill the President. But the lawyers think that it’s enough to nail him when he said that troops would probably have to use their M-60 machine guns against the president because of the volume of evidence proving the latter’s ill-gotten wealth.
Unlawful Remarks for a Senator
The lawyers said Trillanes violated Section 3(e) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (Republic Act 3019) for “irresponsibly and recklessly and continuously accusing, sans evidence,” that the president is keeping over P2 billion in bank accounts and/or amassing illegally-acquired wealth. The complainants cited the statement of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) last September denying that it provided the Office of the Ombudsman with documents and information related to its investigation on Duterte’s finances.
The Law is the Law
The first business of the Philippine government is the preservation of the State. As well as the promotion of the welfare of all the people. Senator Trillanes endangers the life of State and its people. He is responsible for all the probable and logical consequences of his acts. The Senator has caused the evil deed and therefore faces the consequences of his actions as per the law.
End of Trillanes’ Bullying?
Trillanes who vows to “work hard” in ousting Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III should the majority bloc keep Sen. Richard Gordon as Senate Blue Ribbon committee chair has weakened. The vocal administration critic said that the latter’s handling of the powerful committee, which undertakes high-profile legislative investigations, has affected the Senate’s independence. Gordon has given him disciplinary actions but that does stop him from disrespecting authorities. Thus, prompted the pro-administration group to act on his abusive statements.
President Du30 recently teases Senator Richard Gordon as the next Philippine President a few years from now. This is contrary to the president’s assumed quest to guarantee that once Bongbong Marcos wins the electoral protest against Robredo for the vice presidency, he could resign for him to assume the presidency.

[VIDEO]: Pabirong binansagan na susunod na pangulo ni Pres. Duterte si Sen. Richard Gordon sa isang pagtitipon. Dito inilunsad ang unang humanitarian vessel ng Philippine Red Cross.
Just a Tease
The President teases Senator Richard Gordon as the country’s next president in 2022. At the launch of the Philippine Red Cross’ humanitarian ship, Du30 referred to the PRC chairman as “the incoming president of the Republic of the Philippines. His remarks were cheered senators, congressmen, and naval officers who attended the event.
Duterte reveals that Gordon is one of the two people he dreaded to be when they talk. He did not name the other person but insinuates that he’s the former DFA Secretary, Perfecto Yasay. He describes him as the one who did pass CA who has an American accent. Gordon, on the other hand, is always vocal to give his opinions even if it contradicts the president without insulting him. He just urged him to listen to the UN recently.
Looking back before the elections, the president told the sister of Bongbong Marcos, Imee that if he cannot solve the country’s problem in six months, he will turn over the presidency to Marcos who was expected to win the vice presidency at that time. He did not guarantee it but that seems to be what he wants to do.
Du30 is noted to have made remarks just to confuse people – but his actions speak louder than his words. His cabinet members are mostly pro-Marcos. Du30 also discouraged the impeachment complaints against Robredo. He wants Marcos to concentrate on the electoral protest. He has appointed more military men as important government officials. One of them is the new DILG Secretary, General Eduardo Año. As a strategist, the president is really up for something when it comes to his presidential successor nowadays.
Just as when the anti-Marcos protests die down, The Liberal Party’s defender of their faith is again tasked heavily to initiate destabilization. This time, he betrays his accomplice during the malicious Binay probe, Senator Allan Peter Cayetano. Cayetano is Pimentel’s rival for the senate presidency in the past. However, at present time, Cayetano takes over the Foreign Affairs cabinet post. Trillanes announces through CNN the alleged plot to oust Senator Koko Pimentel as Senate President.

[VIDEO]: Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV talks about opposition senators who are part of the Senate majority and on “speculation” of Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano’s desire to become Senate President.
Who Trusts the Feelings of the King of Lies?
Senator Cayetano makes a move to topple Senator Pimentel as Senate President, Trillanes discloses. He justifies the recent senate stir involving him and Senator Zubiri as the indication for the alleged supporters of Cayetano for the said plot. Senators Richard Gordon, JV Ejercito, and Miguel Zubiri are mentioned to allegedly discredit Pimentel’s leadership. Wasn’t it Trillanes who triggers the past Pimentel-Zubiri cheating incident?
Does not Makes Sense for Cayetano
Cayetano denies Trillanes’ accusation”I am not attempting and I do not have any plans to get the leadership.” It does not make sense for him to steal the senate presidency since he’s more interested in the Foreign Affairs Secretary post. It’s in the bag once the appointment ban expires.
Trillanes is noted to have a malicious mind and libelous mouth. He uses those talents in campaigning for his Liberal Party faith. Since he owes a lot from former President Benigno Aquino III. He is a rebel who is only out of jail because of presidential pardon. He has no credibility whatsoever and a shame to the senate.
Trillanes Chickened out on Cayetano’s Resign Challenge
Cayetano said he is willing to resign anytime. He dares Trillanes to do the same if he is not power hungry. “I can prove I’m not hungry for power by leaving the Senate now and helping in a private capacity. Can he do the same? Can he leave the Senate now?” Cayetano said. Trillanes’ response id for Cayetano to resign first which is a laughing stock. Why is this horrible person still a senator of the Philippines?

Senator Richard Gordon also had a bad experience during the martial law era but he recognizes the fact that the Marcoses are indeed back and people elect them into office. It would be a waste of time arguing about a popular decision when they still have other priorities in the senate.

[VIDEO]: Senator Richard Gordon says during the Marcos Burial re-battle at the senate that arguing over the 9:5 decision is a waste of time. (Extract from Presidential Tracker).
Some Senators are Dismayed but 9:5 SC Ruling is Appalling
Some lawmakers express their disappointment and frustration over the high court’s decision to allow the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos at the heroes’ cemetery. The Supreme Court ruling of 9-5 is a landmark and cannot be disputed in favor of the strongman’s destination at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
Shameful for Pangilinan
The decision is “shameful and deplorable” for Senator Kiko Pangilinan. “We kicked out a reviled dictator and now we are honoring him by burying him in our national heroes cemetery. He basically put the blame on the Supreme Court in honoring a plunderer and tyrant leader.
Vice President is Worried
V.P. Leni Robredo is sad and expresses her fear that she will be the next one who will be ousted by the Supreme Court in favor of Bongbong Marcos who found favor in President Rodrigo Duterte’s eyes.
Wrongful or not, Senator Gordon urges fellow senators to respect the mandate of the majority of Filipinos as evident in the SC voting system or else we can go nowhere.

Filipinos have something to rejoice in the country’s political scene today. It is evident that many powerful personalities like former Vice President Jojo Binay, former President Fidel Ramos and Senator Richard Gordon are loyal to the country and not to their political affiliations. These three never tolerates bad manners and actions of President Rodrigo Duterte but they are his avid supporters and endorsers.
[VIDEO]: See how former President Fidel V. Ramos, one of the personalities who urged Duterte to run as President is disappointed with his first 100 days performance. The Philippines is like a leaking and sinking ship as its captain, President Rodrigo Duterte cannot unite Filipinos.
Ramos: Duterte’s ship is Sinking
Ramos campaigns to all Filipinos to do their share as the president cannot do it alone. Unity for one must be addressed first. Duterte supporters must learn to respect opinions of others and not act like during the national elections. Bashing and below the belt attacks are noted online mostly among Duterte supporters.
Senator Richard Gordon Halts Senate Probe
It was obvious that Senator Richard Gordon halted the Extra judicial Killings probe involving the President by not accepting anymore witnesses. He diverts the attention to the Death Penalty issues instead. Shortly after that, the House also announces that they are not recommending any charges for Senator Leila De Lima on her alleged Bilibid prison involvement. It looks like a fair deal for “peace” sake. He did not left the hearing without saying that the President is too noisy.
Binay Urges not to use the Senate for Character Assassination and Display of Bad Manners
Former Vice President Jejomar Binay earlier calls for the senate not to use hearings as the venue for character assassination. If there is probable cause on the allegations, they must go to court and file charges. Not act like they are the judges of bad manners displayed.
Hope for Filipinos
The silent majority must be very grateful with this development. The same as Duterte, his supporters are also very noisy. The bad thing is, they also applaud his bad moves like inspiring killings, swearing and all that. It’s time for change now to stop Duterte’s ship from sinking. Are you one in helping the President?
