TAGAPAMAYAPA

Ang Lupong Tagapamayapa ay hanay ng mga tagapamagitan sa mga sigalot na idinudulog sa barangay. Halimbawa’y usaping singilan ng pagkakautang na hind lalagpas sa limang libong piso, hidwaan ng nga mag-asawa, magsyota, magkapatid, magkapitbahay, at mga kahalintulad (kasama na ang mga masasagwang banggitin pa) na maliliit na usapin lamang. Ayon sa Local Government Code, ito’y magsisilbing mainam na alternatibo upang mabawasan ang mga kasong naisasampa sa mga hukuman. Ngunit walang karapatang magbaba ng hatol ang naturang lupon, kaya kung hindi mapagkasundo ang magkabilang panig, sa husgado pa rin tutuloy ang kaso. Ang lupon ay pinamumunuan ng Punong Barangay.

Balak italaga ni PNoy ang kanyang running mate noong nakaraang halalan na si dating senador, Mar Roxas, bilang Punong Tagapamayapa ng Malacanang. Agad naghiyawan ang kung tagurian ng Pangulo ay “noisy minority.” Bakit, tanong nila, may gulo ba sa Malacanang? Nagkakarambola na ba ang grupong Balay at Samar?

Ang balay, kapwa-Pinoy, ay ang tawag sa bahay ng dating senador Mar Roxas sa Cubao. Sa Ilongo kasi ang tawag sa bahay ay balay. Ilongo ang tatay ni dating senador Mar. Ang balay ang ginawang general headquarters, lalong-lalo na ng mga grupong nagtaguyod ng Aquino-Roxas tandem, noong nakaraang halaan. Ang Samar naman ay grupo ng mga nagtaguyod ng Aquino-Binay tandem, kung saan ang kanilang general headquarters ay nasa Samar St., South Triangle, Quezon City. 

Ika ng aming Instructor noon sa Executive Development Academy, “kapag nagbabangayan ang inyong mga tauhan, maging kampanti ang inyong kalooban. Ngunit, datapwa’t subalit, kung sila’y nagngingitian at nag-aapiran, magduda na kayo at malamang-lamang, sila’y nagsasabwatan at gumagawa ng kaungasan.”

Malusog na kompetisyon ang kinakailangan ngayon ng ating bayan. Lalo’t sa nakalipas na mahahaba-habang panahon labis-labis na nasalaula ang pamamahala sa ating Lupang Hinirang. Taliwas sa paniniwala ng iilang maiingay, dapat pa nga’ng matuwa tayo, kapwa-pinoy, sapagkat malinaw na tungo sa “MATUWID NA LANDAS” ang tinatahak ng mga tagapagsilbi sa Palasyo ng Malakanyang. At, tiyak naman na malalaman natin sakaling kabaliktaran na ang kanilang mga ginagawa, dahil nasanay na tayong kumilatis sa mga kaungasang gawain. Salamat sa nakaraang administrasyon. Sa sandamakmak na kaungasang ginawa nila, naging eksperto tayo pare-pareho. May mga PhD. na yata tayo, di ba?

Hindi ko lubos maisip kung bakit ikinukumpara ng ilang kritiko ang estilo ni PNoy, sa estilo ni GMA. Sa mga ganitong pagkakataon, ika nila, ganito ang ginawa ni PGMA. Bakit hindi ginagawa ni PNoy ang ganun? Tanong nila. Bakit, ganun ba kagaling si PGMA kaya dapat gawin siyang HUWARAN ni PNoy? 

Doon sa nagtatanong na: “Bakit, magulo ba sa Malakanyang kaya dapat may Tagapamayapa? Sagot. Itanong mo kay Winston Churchill bakit sila gumawa na ng mga “air raid shelter” bago pa sila binomba ni Hitler. Kaya lang baka sagutin ka ng tanong din… “Ungas ka ba, hihintayin mo pang bombahin ka muna bago ka gagawa ng mapagtataguan?

There is a certain paradox for those blessed by the Lord. Mary was given the blessedness of being the mother of the Son of God. That blessedness also would become a sword which pierced her heart as her Son died upon the cross. She received both a crown of joy and a cross of sorrow. But her joy was not diminished by her sorrow because it was fueled by her faith, hope, and trust in God and his promises.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

MY CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR PRAYERS FOR YOU

by Berteni Cataluña Causing on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 12:22am

My friend,

SURE I AM HAPPY THIS CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR. This is because I only need enough to make my life beautiful. And that enough is too little in whatever measure.

I only need one plate each eating time to make my stomach grind and make my body work for another income, so that if I had more than one plate I will give it to the man sitting next to me.

I cannot drive two cars at the same time so that I would rather give the excess money to my mother or father or siblings instead of buying another car.

I cannot wear two pairs of shoes at the same time so that I would just buy one more as an alternate and give the excess for others to have shoes, too.

I cannot sleep at two houses at the same time so I would invest the excess money in order to create jobs for the jobless.

The list is endless but the substance is the same.

With this premise, I AM PRAYING THAT ALL MY CHRISTIAN FB FRIENDS, ALL MY MUSLIM FB FRIENDS, ALL MY BUDDHIST FB FRIENDS, and ALL FB FRIENDS WHO DO NOT HAVE GOD THAT THEY ALL LIVE A SIMPLE LIFE AND GIVE THE EXCESS TO THEIR RELATIVES OR BUILD A BUSINESS SO THAT THEY CAN GIVE JOBS TO THEIR FELLOWMEN.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sandiganbayan 2nd Division
22 December 2010

It appearing that numerous unfounded comments have been made on the incidents pending in these cases that only confused the issue and do not in anyway serve the end of justice, the parties, their lawyers, and representatives are hereby ordered to refrain from issuing any press releases or granting any interview or otherwise making any comment or opinion on these cases pending the promulgation of the decision herein. So ordered

Edilberto Sandoval, Chairman, Second Division
Teresita Diaz-Baldoz, Associate Justice
Roland Jurado, Associate Justice

000

Mukhang nag-alangan ang Sandiganbayan sa punto ito. Maliwanag na kanila nang tinanggap ang pag-amin ni Maj. Gen. Carlos Garcia sa pagkakasala ng mas mahinang kasong "Direct Bridery," dahil inaprubahan na nila ang paglagak ng piyensa at dahil doon ay pansamantala ng lumaya si Heneral. Bakit hindi pa nila itinodo?

Paabiso lang sa Office of the Ombudsman, kaninang umaga kausap ng inyong lingkod, sa pamamagitan ng celfone, si Deputy Special Prosecutor Jesus Mecaela. Matigas ang kanyang paninindigan at walang kagatol-gatol niyang tinanggap ang hamon na kayang idepensa ng Office of the Ombudsman kahit sa Plaza Miranda ang kanilang sinang-ayonang "Plea Bargaining Agreement." Ito aniya, ay para sa kabutihan ng sambayang Filipino. Taliwas dito ang paniniwala nina Atty. Alan Paguia at Atty. Homobono Adaza. Kaya tinanggap nila ang paanyaya ng inyong lingkod at handa silang humarap sa naturang debate anumang oras. 

Ang hirit lang ni Atty. Mecaela, ang debate ay gagawin matapos na ilabas na ng Sandiganbayan ang promulgasyon.

Ang maidepensa sa Plaza Miranda ang anumang hakbang o gawain ng alinmang sangay o opisyal ng pamahalaan ang patunay na ito ay MAKATOTOHANAN, MAKATARUNGAN, AT KAPAKI-PAKINABANG PARA SA SAMBAYANAN.

PAGPAPALAYA KAY HENERAL GARCIA,
KAYANG IDEPENSA NG OMBUDSMAN SA PLAZA  MIRANDA

Kahapon ng umaga kausap ko si Atty. Jesus Micael. Siya ang tumatayong Tagapagsilita ng office of the special prosecutor ng Office of the Ombudsman hinggil sa plea bargaining agreement sa kasong pandarambong laban kay Major Gen. Carlos Garcia. Pumayag siya sa live interview sa aking afternoon program, Kilatis live on iTV. Pagdating ng takdang oras, siya'y umatras. What else is new with the Office of the Ombudsman. Madalas nilang hini-HIT AND RUN ang taumbayan. 

Antayin na lamang daw ang pagpapalabas ng disisyon ng Sandiganbayan, ngayong umagang ito, hinggil sa "Plea Bargaining Agreement," na pinagkasunduan ng panig ni Gen. Garcia at ng Ombudsman - ang pag-amin ni Gen. Garcia sa mas mababang kaso ng direct bribery upang kalimutan ang kasong pandarambong laban dito. Umaasa ang OSP na kakatigan ng Sandiganbayan ang naturang kasunduan. Pagnagkataon, parang pakiramdam nila vindicated na sila. Magkakaroon daw ng presscon sa opisina ng ombudsman. Doon ko na lamang daw pakawalan ang aking mga katanungan.

Tila, hindi abot ng isip ng tagapagsalita na ibang usapin kung kakatigan o hindi ng Sandiganbayan ang kasunduan. Ang mas mahalang isyu na dapat linawin ng OSP at ng Office of the Ombudsman mismo ay kung bakit itinago nila ang kasunduang isang taon na pala nilang niluluto? Bakit pumayag sila gayung malakas ang ebidensiya laban sa Heneral? Bakit hindi kasama sa kasunduan na pangalanan ng Heneral ang kanyang mga kasapakat sa pandarambong?

Ang pag-amin ni Gen. Garcia sa direct bribery kasabay ng pagsuli ng 130M peso (barya lamang kumpara sa totoong halagang kinulimbat nila) ay katumbas na rin ng pag-amin sa kasong pandarambong. At, kahit na siya'y aamin sa kasong direct bribery lamang hindi ito dapat tanggapin ng Sandiganbayan. Bakit? Ito ay PANDARAMBONG pa rin! Bakit? Ang PANDARAMBONG ay pangungulimbat sa kaban ng bayan ng halagang 50M pesos pataas. At, alam ng kahit grade 1 section 11, na ang 130M pesos ay mas higit kaysa 50M pesos.

Katatapos lang naming mag-usap ni Atty. Jesus Mecael (12:10 pm, 22 December 2010). Hindi daw natuloy paglalabas ng Sandiganbayan ng desisyon. Na-postpone!? 

Sa matigas niyang paninindigan, naitanong ko kung kaya bang idepensa sa Plaza Miranda ng Office of the Ombudsman ang kanilang panig sa isyung ito. Oo daw. Kaya inaalok ko sa kanya ang aking Kilatis Media Forum. Imbes na tuwing araw ng Martes sa Rotary Center, kahit anong oras at araw ililipat ko ito sa Plaza Miranda at doon kikilatisin ang isyu. Pumayag naman siya. Antayin lang daw lumabas ang desisyon ng Sandiganbayan para walang sub judice. 

Abangan!!!
