President Rodrigo Duterte  ordered  all commissioners of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) to resign

“I am demanding they all resign,” the President said, citing both internal and intelligence reports indicating systemic corruption in the agency.

The Villa family, meanwhile, expressed gratitude for Duterte's prompt action on the corruption allegations.

"We, the family of Jun Villa, are deeply and profoundly humbled and so grateful for the attention of Pres. Duterte to shed light over our tragic loss... We thank the President for taking the first step towards reforms in power industry which will benefit consumers and the economy," their statement read.

Villa’s sister, journalist Charie Villa, said the notes showed that he had been under stifling pressure to approve procurement contracts without bidding or hire consultants as chair of ERC’s bids and awards committee.

“They really abused the [system]… just like in the past,” Mr. Duterte said, speaking to reporters before heading back to Manila after his participation at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit here.

He also said he would ask Congress to either “disband” or “reorganize” the ERC and to file charges against the erring officials.

“I leave it to the implementor. All these officials will have a choice: I will demand from Congress to disband [ERC] or leave them without a budget, and/or file cases simultaneous,” Mr. Duterte said.

The President said ERC officials should prepare themselves.

“My source was a document. Now it’s a matter of government lawyers

The president said he received internal and intelligence report about anomalies in the ERC including having too many consultants, and how its officials deal with contracts

Duterte clarified  that he is asking ERC officials, not the rank and file to resign

The current commissioners of the ERC are Alfredo Non, Atty. Gloria Victoria Yap-Taruc, Atty. Josefina Patricia Asirit, and Geronimo Sta. Ana.

Duterte also ordered the immediate probe of ERC, adding there will be "no sacred cows" in the investigation. Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, however, said it is still unclear as to which body will hold the investigation.

NETIZENS CALLS CHR,DSWD, AND DepED FOR USING "INNOCENT CHILDREN" IN THE RALLY AGAINST MARCOS? MUST KNOW!!!


Most of the protester against Pres. Marcos are youth. There is always a question in my mind, do this student really know what they are fighting for? or do they really know what they are shouting in the streets? Or maybe they have just been influenced by the feeling of vengeance by some personalities seeking justice against Pres. Marcos.

There are so many critics in social media for youth had been participating in rallies and other organize groups for the protester were not yet born during the Marcos regime. Youth are just been influenced by the feeling of other people who had been the victims of Martial Law.
And as of today no one in the court case had been won directly involving late Pres. Marcos.

The very alarming situation some Teachers or School had to organize the protest using the children, the photos above are gaining critics why the teachers and school had allowed these children to be used in protest, instead, the children must be in school and taught about what is good moral but why there are being used for vengeance and some's personal interest?

One of the Bishop's calls for forgiveness and even the Pres. Duterte asks for forgiveness instead of hatred. We are Christians and being Christians means forgiveness.

The CHR, DSWD, and Department of Education should look into this matter for what and why these innocent children holding the banners.

NO MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION FILE AGAINST PRES. MARCOS BURIAL? MUST READ!!!


There are so many protests against Pres. Marcos burial in some parts  of Manila and some area in the Philippines but the big question, have they appealed to the supreme court for the suspension of the burial in Libingan ng mga Bayani? No one filed the petition for the suspension of the burial, so the Marcos has the right to continue after they win the case which was voted by the judges with 9-5.

No prohibition to the burial because the 9-5 decision of the court on Nov. 8 upholding Mr. Duterte’s decision also lifted the status quo ante order issued by the tribunal in September. According to Theodore Te spokesperson of Supreme Court.

Te said the Supreme Court was “in between sessions”  and only Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno could have issued a temporary restraining order to stop the burial “if there is a request and a written recommendation” from the writer of the decision, Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta.

Meanwhile, the The National Union of Public Lawyers (NUPL), counsel for the petitioners, said they would file an urgent motion for contempt and show cause against former first lady Imelda Marcos and her family, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police for the “premature and hasty execution of the Supreme Court ruling, which had not yet become final and executory.

“The military, police, and top government officials [are] obviously in conspiracy with the Marcos family for [a] sneaky and shameless hero’s burial. It was premeditated and orchestrated to jump the gun on protests and possible reversal or deferral of court decision. Very Marcosian,” NUPL secretary general Edre Olalia said.

FORMER PRES. MARCOS BURIAL IN LIBINGAN NG MGA BAYANI WILL UNFREEZE THE HIDDEN SWISS ACCOUNT? HOW TRUE? MUST READ!!!


Finally, after Voting 9-5, the Supreme Court voted to allow the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani (Heroes’ Cemetery).

The nine high court justices who voted to allow the burial are Associate Justices Arturo Brion, Presbitero Velasco Jr, Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin, Mariano del Castillo, Jose Perez, Teresita de Castro, Jose Mendoza, and Estela Perlas-Bernabe.

The justice who dissented were Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, together with Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, and Associate Justices Marvic Leonen, Francis Jardeleza, and Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa.

The “shocked” petitioners against the Marcos burial at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani, immediately held a press conference criticizing the high court for its decision, while the supporters of the Marcos camp holding a vigil at the Supreme Court rejoiced.

Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., said he was “very happy” that he could finally bury his father at the Heroes’ Cemetery.

“We are very grateful to the Supreme Court for its decision,” he said in an interview by CNN Philippines.

He said this was a recognition of the rights of his father as a soldier and a former president of the country.

He also thanked President Duterte for his “strong support for the rule of law.”

Senator Marcos, who was in Tacloban City in an event remembering the third anniversary of the Yolanda tragedy, said the decision was “an important step to the healing process and the reconciliation process.”

Cherry Cobarrubias, one of the known Marcos loyalists, said, “I’m really happy.  The Holy Spirit really enlightened the justices.”

“That's Enough.  We have to forgive each other.  We have to move on,” she said to the anti-Marcos activists who continue to oppose the controversial burial at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani.

While the Marcos camp and the Marcos supporters rejoiced, the anti-Marcos activists who were among the petitioners who tried to stop the planned burial of Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery, said they were “sad and shocked”.

President Duterte on Wednesday stood firm on his decision, upheld by a 9-5 vote of the Supreme Court, allowing the burial of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos at Libingan ng Mga Bayani.

the President shrugged off the contention by leftist groups and victims of martial law atrocities that Marcos was no hero and did not deserve to be buried at the heroes’ cemetery

“The question … about the dictatorship of Marcos is something which cannot be determined at this time. It has to have history,” he said.

“That part of the sins of Marcos has yet to be proven by a competent court,” he said. Allegations about Marcos’ stolen wealth “is an altogether different issue.”

In a decision announced the high tribunal threw out seven petitions against the burial of Marcos at Libingan, declaring that there was no abuse of discretion committed by Mr. Duterte in allowing the interment of the dictator there.

Mr. Marcos, ousted in the 1986 Edsa People Power Revolution, died at the age of 72 while in exile in Hawaii three years later. His body, returned to the Philippines in July 1993, is in the family mausoleum in his Batac, Ilocos Norte, hometown.

Told that Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III planned to seek a reconsideration of the court decision, Mr. Duterte said:  “The law says that soldiers and ex-Presidents who died can be buried there… I simply follow the law. We cannot do anything about it. The law itself says that … Ferdinand Marcos was a President and he was a soldier.”

“The law is the law. It has no emotions at all. It says that if you are a President (you can be buried there). It does not say you have a record of a dictatorship or what not, or being a gentle despot. It does not say anything like that,” Duterte repeated in Davao City on Friday, where he spoke at an event recognizing the humanitarian deeds of his late mother, Soledad Duterte.


Lorenzana said the 21-gun salute would be executed by a seven-man team, who would fire three shots each in succession.

Lorenzana said all the necessary arrangements had already been done for Marcos’ burial at the Libingan, including the excavation of the grave. Only the date was being finalized.

“In giving Marcos a hero’s burial, he would virtually be spitting on the graves of the tens of thousands of martyrs who laid down their lives in the struggle to end the puppet, brutal and rotten Marcos dictatorship,” the CPP said.

Duterte had said he was not honoring Marcos as a hero but a soldier and a former president.

“The law said that soldiers and the president could be buried there,” Duterte said.

The CPP said Duterte “will bring to question his own assertions of being a Leftist considering that the Marcos dictatorship is the epitome of the anti-Left.”

“If Duterte allows Marcos’ body to be dug up from Ilocos Norte and re-interred with hero’s burial, he would have provided the Marcoses with the ultimate act of rehabilitation,” the CPP said.

Former President Ferdinand Marcos body has been placed in an air-conditioned glass coffin inside a mausoleum in Ilocos Norte. There have been speculations that the actual remains have been buried and the body seen in the glass case is a wax figure.)

The Malacanang palace has already decided about the burial of late President Ferdinand Marcos in Libingang ng Mga Bayani before this year ended.

According to president spokesman Ernesto Abella even if there no specific date about the burial of late President Ferdinand Marcos but it is already nearest in the future and he also added this year would not end the burial of late strongman Marcos concede on his burial


However there a rumored that the government wanted to the public the hidden wealth of Marcos. the Swiss  account that revealed their ill-gotten wealth that if the former president got buried in the Libingan ng Mga Bayani that account would reveal in public and could be surrender  to Duterte's Administration.

When Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr was 26, living in Hawaii after his father was deposed by a people power rebellion in February 1986, a first-hand account shows that he was privy to the Marcos deposits in the Swiss banks, particularly Credit Suisse. It is not clear if he knew the amounts involved but these were estimated at $10 to $20 billion, alleged to have been illicit wealth. Part of this has since been transferred to the Philippine government.

De Guzman was a high-flying banker who headed an investment firm in Manila in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He later formed a bank in Austria and spent much of his time there. He had known Bongbong and even hosted him once when he visited Vienna.

De Guzman testified in 2 Congressional investigations on “Operation Big Bird,” a sting operation to recover the Marcos ill-gotten deposits hidden in the then secretive banks of Switzerland.

One of the first things De Guzman did, immediately after the EDSA rebellion, was to seek a meeting with the Marcoses. His aim was to acquire letters designating him to transfer the Marcos deposits to his bank in Vienna before these were frozen by the Swiss government. He would then turn these over to the Philippine government and be paid a certain percentage of the total find.

At the time, President Ferdinand Marcos was ailing. In the temporary quarters of the Marcoses in Hickam Air Force base in Honolulu, there seemed to be nervousness in the air and some uncertainty about the state of their enormous Swiss deposits. This contributed to De Guzman's initial success – he came at an early time and made the first offer to rescue their wealth.

The past should be unfolded for the better tomorrow of every Filipinos in the Philippines, the Supreme Court is already decided in favor of former President Ferdinand Marcos.
let's move on.
“The law is the law. It has no emotions at all. It says that if you are a President (you can be buried there). It does not say you have a record of a dictatorship or what not, or being a gentle despot. It does not say anything like that,”

WHAT WOULD BE THE IMPACT OF DONALD TRUMP AS NEW PRESIDENT OF AMERICA TO PHILIPPINES AND OTHER ASIA PACIFIC COUNTRIES? MUST READ!!!


After a very close polling across the nation, Donald Trump is officially the 45th president of the United States, winning 276 electoral college votes over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's 218.

Election night had many voters on edge all the way until the end.
Donald Trump nabbed big states, including Texas, Florida, and the Carolinas. While Hillary tried to hold on, taking New York, Virginia, and Illinois, it just wasn't enough to get the victory.

What can we in Southeast Asia expect now that the unthinkable has happened?

The businessman turned populist Donald Trump has managed to pull off a major upset and has become the 45th President of the United States, beating Hillary Clinton.

At the time of writing, Trump has managed to win at least 276 Electoral College votes, scoring stunning victories in battleground states such as Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania. This puts him in over the 270 vote threshold for victory. This marks the stunning conclusion of a roller-coaster election, marked by Trump’s heated rhetoric against various groups as well as scandals involving Clinton’s e-mail and her husband Bill’s Foundation.

America, it has to be said, has had its “Duterte moment”: a charismatic but unpredictable populist upending not only the machinations of his country’s political elite but also everything we thought we knew about political science and international affairs.

what can we expect from a Trump presidency? The most obvious answer is that we simply don’t know. Trump is unpredictable. He has managed to make a common cause with the white, working-class and rural Americans.

These are people who feel left out or alienated by changes in American society over the last couple of decades. Many have had looked on as their communities and their livelihoods have been destroyed by free-trade and changes in technology.

The leftward shift in terms of social mores under outgoing President Obama’s rainbow coalition of minorities has come as a shock to the more conservative.

Trump has been able to transform himself from a real estate businessman to a media operator and now one of the republic’s most remarkable politicians. And along the way, he has demonstrated both brilliance and ruthlessness in equal measure.

But again what will this mean for us in Southeast Asia?

The nations of Southeast Asia have grown comfortable with America’s military and political presence for decades as well as its position as the globe's biggest importer. This will all change.

We in Southeast Asia may well be expected to pay for our share of the peace the Americans bring. Certainly, we can forget about Obama’s ambitious pivot to the Asia-Pacific.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership will be history given Trump’s nationalistic and protectionist leanings.
Meanwhile, all of this is taking place as China and Xi Jinping gathers in strength both domestically and internationally   witness President Duterte’s recent pivot to Beijing.

Or perhaps it will not be that bad maybe Trump will instead seek to cut deals with China and Russia, leading to a new sort of global detente.

Congratulations Donald Trump for your victory! Despite all the lies and defamation pushed on by the liberals. CNN is still not recognizing all the electoral votes so far for Trump. Time for BIASED media to figure out an honest way to do their jobs.
The American people are speaking and tired of it I seriously hope you considering suing CNN for their disgusting behavior.

Actually, maybe all that negative media attention on you backfired and probably did more for your cause than any advertising ever will, as it encouraged Americans to think for themselves and form their own opinions.

You stuck to your values from the beginning no matter how many people laughed and mocked you. we look forward to your presidency and your conviction to make America Great Again

ANOTHER VICTIM OF "LASLAS BALIKBAYAN BOX" UNDER PRES. DUTERTE'S ADMINISTRATION? MUST KNOW!!!

Bureau of Custom in the Philippines is one of the worst and corrupt department in the government. There so many reported incidents of corruption yet the government finds it hard to stop. The past administrations had attempted to stop the corruption yet fail, now the present administration of Pres. Duterte is very eager and sincere to stop the corruption in custom. But still, there are some incidents of stealing even if the government had already warned them.

Last week an OFW from Taiwan had sent his balikbayan box to his province in the Philippines. He sends through EEC Taiwan but he was disappointed when his family in the Philippines had told him that the balikbayan box which he sends had been open on one side.


The OFW had been advised to not open the box but to report it to the authority so that they may verify and know what had happened to the balikbayan box.

It is sad that still there some thieves personnel  in the bureau of custom, this is not the first time incident under the new administration. The fears of the OFW are still within.  I remember one of the businessman in China whom I transact with, I am convincing them to open a branch in the Philippines for the expansion of their company, yet they were so hesitant to open because they told me that the Bureau of Custom in the Philippines is one of the most corrupt customs in the world. And I did not argue with them because they know and I know the situation.

So to all OFW with this kind of problems please do not ignore, instead report it to the bureau of custom for legal actions.

CATHOLIC CHURCH EXPECTS ANNULMENT CASES TO BE FREE? MUST KNOW!!!


Pope Francis’ historic announcement that the annulment process will be simplified and made available for free, leaders of the Catholic Church in the Philippines feel that there will be an upsurge in the number of annulment cases in the country.

In a recent interview, Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz of the National Appellate Matrimonial Tribunal of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said that they are welcoming the news with gladness.

According to Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz, “I agree with the Holy Father that the process for marriage nullity declaration can be shortened” describing the current process as “quite complicated.”

In the past, an annulment has always been very expensive plus the process usually took a long time. With the changes announced by Vatican, the new requirements will shorten the process because annulment cases approved by the church court will no longer have to be reviewed by another tribunal. Also, it will only take about 2 months or less for an annulment to be granted.

An annulment typically  where the local leaders will make the decision whether a marriage can be considered null and void. After that, the decision will be forwarded to the Appellate Matrimonial Tribunal so they can review it. In case the case meets disagreement at a Court of Appeals, the case will be sent to Rome.

In Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz viewpoint, the easier annulment is an advantage because “The more cases will be resolved, the more should be able to go back into the fold” since they will no longer be considered “living in sin.”

Despite these changes, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP)  was quick to emphasize that “The teaching about the indissolubility and unity of marriage remains. The doctrine about the sacredness of marriage and family life is unchanged. The declaration of nullity of marriage is not divorce.”

Since we still do not have the divorce law in the country, annulment remains to be the only viable option for couples who want to terminate their marriage in a legal way.

according to definition made by Guzman Tañedo & Acain Law Firm, marriage annulment is “a Court process in order to annul the marital union between a husband and wife. Annulment of marriage presupposes that the marriage was valid from the beginning and remains valid until annulled by the Court.”

To be able to file for an annulment, it is important to make sure that you have legal grounds to file a petition in the first place.

Some of the legal reasons for annulment are mentioned under Article 45 of the Family Code for annulment. Nullity of void marriages, on the other hand, are under Article 35 (absence of formal and essential requisites of marriage), Article 36 (psychological incapacity), Article 37 (incestuous marriage) as well as Article 38 (marriages that are void by reason of public policy).

the concerned individual should file a Petition for Annulment of Marriage at the Regional Court’s Office of the Executive Clerk of Court. The office will then raffle a schedule for the case and eventually, they will issue a Summon to the respondent spouse so that he or she can file an answer to the petition.

Next, the Court sets a pre-trial conference where the attendance of involved parties is required. This will later lead to the actual trial proceedings.

In any case, it is crucial that you work with a competent lawyer who will provide you with legal guidance every step of the way. Hope this post will enlighten you regarding on how to file annulment here in the Philippines.

2. Grant-in-Aid - requires a minimum level of capacity (to tackle college work) from poor but qualified students so they could finish tertiary education.

3.Student loan- consists of short- or long-term loans to students who are short of cash, regardless of their economic status during the time of enrolment. The student is (or his parents, guardians or co-makers are) expected to pay the loan when they become gainfully employed.

6. A graduate of Senior High Schools or equivalent level and who wish to pursue the undergraduate courses.

7. Applicants must declare if they are already benefiting from other government StuFAPs. They may still avail of another StuFAP for the remaining portion -- if at the time of the application -- the amount of the other existing grant did not cover the full cost of tertiary education at the Higher Education Institution (HEI, which offers associate, bachelor and advanced degrees) or the Technological Vocational Institution (TVI, which are public or private institutions recognized/ authorized by TESDA to implement the Dualized Training Program or DTP together with a partner establishment).
