OCTA Research survey exposes fraud in SC decision

Kung tama nga ang desisyon ng Korte Suprema sa pagbasura sa election protest ni dating Senador Bongbong Marcos sa pagkapanalo ni Atty. Leni Robredo bilang Vice President, dapat siguro lalabas sa resulta ng mga survey na ang biyuda nga ni Jessie Robredo ang suportado ng taong bayan.

Subalit, sa Octa Research survey nitong nakaraang linggo, lumalabas na kahit nawala sa puwesto si Marcos, mas mataas pa ang poll survey ratings niya keysa kay Robredo, na walang ginawa nitong nakaraang apat na taon at kalahati kondi mag kampanya. Si BBM ay naka-angkin ng 12%; si Leni ay kulelat na nakatanggap lamang ng 5%.

Now the truth will always prevail. Isa itong INDICTMENT sa Supreme Court na pinayagan ang sarili na maging kasangkapan ng dayaan sa election!

WARNING: Trillanes is harmful to our nation’s future

Leni, bakit hindi mo tinutulugan ang mga nasalanta ni Bagyong Auring?

Run, Leni, run!

Run, Leni, run. Patunayan mo na hindi nagkamali ang Korte Suprema na ikaw nga ang hinalal ng taong bayan na Bise Presidente laban kay BBM.Mapapahiya sa iyo si Justice Leonen.

100% sure win for Sara Duterte if she runs

That Leni Robredo got only 5% in the Octa Research survey for the 2022 Presidential Elections, way behind front-runner Sara Duterte, is eloquent testimony of the Herculean failure of her “iyong-iyong” propaganda efforts.

On the other hand, Inday Sara took the commanding lead without even trying with 22%, with more prominent Senators Grace Poe and Manny Pacquiao and former Senator Bongbong Marcos, trailing her by a wide margin.

Robredo has been in campaign mode since day one of her fraudulent vice presidency, squeezing herself into every possible stage to project her image. Contrast that with Inday Sara’s seeming disinterest to succeed her father.

If Inday Sara was a surrogate for her father, the poll survey reinforces President Duterte’s rock-solid popularity. And that, of course, can easily be translated into political capital for her in case she does run.

Indeed, it is now foregone conclusion that the next President will either be Inday Sara or someone endorsed by Tatay Digong. Robredo is correct in hinting she would rather seek a local position. There’s simply no way she can win.

Mamasapano revisited

At about this time six years ago (0621H 25 January 2015), elements of the Special Action Force (SAF) sent on a mission to capture or exterminate terrorist Marwan were already in the thick of a firefight against a vastly superior force of BIFF and MILF rebels in Tukanalipao, Mamasapano in Maguindanao.

I can imagine the well-trained commando force making their way to their extraction points as bullets whizzed over their heads, keeping the enemy at bay with their superior tactics and combat training.The SAF commandos weren’t worried as yet at this time, believing that reinforcements from nearby Army camps would come, aided by helicopter gunships and artillery fire.

Terrorist Marwan lies dead in Mamasapano. But it came at the cost of 44 lives of SAF commandos.

Indeed, the BIFF and MIFF could easily have been routed had there been an order for the Army and Air Force to swing into action.However, their Commander in Chief, Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III, kept the military on stand-by status even as the SAF commandos began taking casualties. Aquino must have thought he was playing a video game in which the good guys could defeat the bad guys with him at the consoles.

Without reinforcements, the SAF commandos found themselves pinned down. Sniper fire picked them at leisure. Their position was on level ground with no cover except for the corn planted on the field. They radioed in desperation: “Please send help.”

Army troops were only several hundred meters away. The soldiers wanted to rush forward and join the battle. But their orders were to stay put.

As it turned out, Aquino was more concerned about preserving the peace pact with the BIFF and MIFF crafted by a law professor named Mario Victor Leonen. He didn’t care about the lives of his own men. He felt he could win the Nobel Peace Prize if he could keep the peace accord intact.

Forty-four valiant SAF commandos perished in this lopsided battle, a battle that should have gone the other way — the good guys winning — had the Commander in Chief possessed good judgment.

The rest is history.

Tatay Digong, please, tabangan mo ang Capiz

SANA PO MAKARATING ITO KAY PANGULONG DUTERTE.

Mahal na Pangulo:

Nagkakagulo na po ngayon sa lungsod ng Roxas at lalawigan ng Capiz dahil libo-libong mga tao na namuhunan sa “double your money” scam ay hindi nakakatanggap ng kanilang pera kahit na dumating ang nakatakdang araw para sa kanilang “pay-out” nitong nakaraang isang linggo.

Marami po sa kanila ay mga ordinaryong Filipino — magsasaka, mangingisda, tricycle driver, vendor sa palengke, mga public school teachers, retired government employees. Pinangarap nilang magkaroon ng mas magandang buhay sa pamagitan ng “get rich quick” scam na walang pagkaiba sa Kapa Community Ministry International na ipinasara niyo noong nakaraang taon.

Ang scam ay inoperate ni Patrocenio Calvez Chiyuto, Jr. mula pa noong September 2019 at mabilis kumalat sa mga bayan ng Capiz. Nakarating pa nga ito sa lalawigan ng Iloilo, Aklan at Guimaras. Isang Ponzi scheme ang negosyong ito. Noong malaman ito ng Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), nagpalabas ang ahensya ng ADVISORY o babala sa publiko noong Agosto 18, 2020 na hindi rehistrado at negosyo ni Chiyuto sa ilalim ng pangalan na Chiyuto Creative Wealth Document Facilitation Services. Walang kaukulang secondary license na mag alok at mag tinda ng investment products.

Maliban pa diyan, nag operate ang double your money scam ni Chiyuto sa Barangay Cagay, Roxas City sa loob na ng isang taon at apat na buwan kahit hindi ito na bigyan ng Business Permit mula sa tanggapan ng City Mayor ng Roxas City, si Ronnie Dadivas. Ang hawak-hawak ni Chiyuto na Business Permit ay galing sa Las Pinas City LGU.

Sa kabila ng napakaliwanag na paglabag sa batas ni Chiyuto, nag operate ito na walang pagsita o hadlang mula sa mga otoridad sa Capiz. Pati na rin po ang mga kapulisan, naging protektor pa ni Chiyuto. Biglang yaman halos lahat na opisyal ng PNP sa Capiz. Ganun din po ang mga mayor.

CORRUPTION HAS SWALLOWED ROXAS CITY AND CAPIZ, Mr. President, and these officials turned their backs on their own constituents in letting Chiyuto operate with impunity.

Ngayon po ay tinakbuhan na ni Chiyuto ang mga investors. Hindi pa rin kumikilos ang mga otoridad sa Capiz. Tahimik lamang sila habang dumarami at dumarami ang mga investors na nagrereklamo dahil hindi na-ibigay ang nakatakdang “pay-out” nitong nakaraang pitong (7) araw. Ang daming dahilan na si Chiyuto. Una nag “holiday” dahil kailangan daw niyang ayusin ang mga papeles niya. Bumalik ang operation noong Biyernes pero ang mga VIP lamang — mga PNP officers at mga local officials — ang nakatanggap ng pay-out. Ang mga ordinaryong investors ay nagpila ng ilang oras, subalit umuwi na lang na malungkot dahil hindi sila kasama sa pay-out.

Mahal na Pangulo, napakalaki po ang scam na ito.

Ayon sa mga sources ko, maaring umabot sa dalawang bilyong piso (P2 billion) ang natangay ng scammer na ito. The economy of Capiz is in grave danger. Kawawa po ang mga maliliit na tao na mawawasak ang buhay dahil sa pangako sa kasinungalingan na double your money.

Nagmamaka-awa po ako, kasama ang ilan pang taga Capiz, na ipa-investigate po itong nangyayari diyan sa Capiz at papanagutin ang mga opisyal sa LGU at PNP sa kanilang kapabayaan. At the least these officials are guilty of GROSS NEGLECT OF DUTY. They have blood in their hands.

Maraming salamat po, mahal na Pangulo.

Don Chiyuto: scammer preys on hapless victims in Capiz (with help from Korina Sanchez-Roxas)

Patrocenio Calvez Chiyuto shot out of nowhere to emerge the most talked-about person in the Province of Capiz and its capital, Roxas City. Two weeks ago, Ms. Korina Sanchez (or Mrs. Mar Roxas) did a feature segment about him on her YouTube channel, calling him “Mr. Solve”. She depicted Chiyuto, more popularly known as “Don Chiyuto”, as an angel from heaven who has been helping poor people with their problems. Ms. Sanchez coined the phrase, “Problema mo, sagot ko” to describe this man who is now raking in millions of pesos every day from gullible victims in the province where I grew up. Chiyuto runs the “Chiyuto Creative Wealth Document Facilitation Service” or “CCWDFS”. It is the latest scam to hit the country, with Capiz at the epicenter.

Last night, I did a livestream on YouTube to expose the activities of this wolf in sheep’s clothing. I compared him with Pastor Joel Apolinario, Norman Mangusin (a.k.a. Francis Leo Marcos) and Rickne Jacala, among others. I showed them the similarities in style, especially in the display or flaunting of expensive cars, houses and jewelry to tantalize would-be victims. Sad to say, the tactic always works, and no amount of explanation that their schemes are a scam can discourage many victims.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued an advisory on August 18, 2020 informing the public that Chiyuto’s CCWDFS is not registered with the agency. Neither is the investment scheme registered or licensed. In short, it is illegal. And the “double your money” promise is a classic scam that has victimized tens of thousands of Filipinos. Hence, those who insist it is not a scam can proceeding at their own risk. They have been informed about the fraudulent nature of the scheme.

There’s just one point I would like to emphasize to the victims who continue to believe they receive a manna from heaven. Look at the document issued by Chiyuto.

At first glance, it looks like a post-dated check to guarantee payment to the investor. But it is not. It is not issued by a bank. The heading shows that it is a “check voucher” issued by CCWDFS and signed by Chiyuto. On the upper left hand side, there is a stamp “A/C payee only”, a term used in checks. It is also denominated as a “check” with a corresponding number on the lower left side. Clearly, it is designed to deceive and mislead the public, and give a sense of assurance that their money, with the fantastic ROI, will be returned.

However, it is a mere scrap of paper. The “investor” cannot deposit it on the date appearing on the document. It is not a promissory note. It does not acknowledge that Chiyuto got money from the “investor” in the first place. Hence, Chiyuto wisely sidesteps the possibility of being charged for estafa. A voucher is just that: a voucher. It is a document used by businesses for recording purposes of their financial transactions, especially disbursements. It cannot be used as evidence that they were duped.

Much ado about nothing

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte doused ice-cold water on the bickering of some senators wanting to ride on the issue of the Sinovac vaccination of members of the Presidential Security Group (PSG). In an address to the nation on Monday night (January 4, 2021), President Duterte issued a directive to Brig. Gen. Jesus Durante, commander of the PSG, to ignore any subpoena from the Senate for him or any other PSG officer to appear and testify. “Kung gusto niyo ng gulo, di ibigay ko sa inyo ang gulo,” the President warned.

Indeed, these senators — Richard Gordon, Franklin Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan and Leila de Lima — were fussing too much about nothing. The issue was blown out of proportion. All they wanted was to press on the issue in another vain effort to undermine the credibility of President Duterte. As I explained in my YouTube livestream on Monday, the very law (RA 9711) that established the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not contain a provision that makes what the PSG had done to be illegal. But the way these senators, to include former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, tried to paint the issue, the PSG had committed treason.

The very mandate of the FDA demonstrates that the agency is tasked to “safeguard public health and safety”. It is a regulatory agency. It is empowered to require all manufacturers, dealers and distributors of drugs and medicines, processed food (including herbal products), cosmetics and medical gadgets and devices to get a license before these can be sold or dispensed to the public at large. Hence, the regulatory powers are aimed at preventing products that are yet untested as to potential harm from being sold on the open market.

The law is directed at manufacturers, importers, exporters and distributors of products under the ambit of the FDA regulatory powers. It does not prohibit private individuals or groups from bringing in drugs and medicines from abroad that are already in use at the source, but are not yet registered with FDA, if these are for their use only. The law doesn’t prohibit anybody from buying a life-saving drug from abroad and ingest it for his or her treatment. What it prohibits is the importation of unregistered products on commercial scale and for purpose of being sold on the market.

So much non-sense have been said about this issue. This is the problem with our politicians and mainstream media. They look at a speck on the President’s face and make it look like a mountain. Too bad for them, their efforts at undermining the President have failed time and again.

ABS-CBN: dead in the water

Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said the expired franchise of ABS-CBN might stand a chance of being granted because of the new leadership in the House of Representatives. Is this a hint that there are things hidden from the public view in the agenda of House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco? Sotto has a reputation of spilling out matters that are being kept from the people. But I hope it’s not the case.

The only way ABS-CBN can get a new franchise — it’s going to be a “new” franchise because the one granted under RA 7966 had expired last March — is for the broadcasting giant to present a clean bill of health on the many issues extracted during the marathon public hearings last year. And there are many. Without the company fixing the legal infirmities and paying overdue taxes as well as those it had dodged, there is just no way the House of Representatives can turn about-face on the issue.

I don’t think Speaker Velasco would risk losing the position that had caused a bitter fight with his predecessor, Alan Peter Cayetano, last October. There are rumblings in the House that could easily escalate into an ouster movement against him. He is there only because President Rodrigo Roa Duterte intervened. Cayetano was ready for a siege; he relented when the President spoke to them both.

The public simply won’t accept a sudden change of heart on the ABS-CBN franchise application. And warning must be served upon those politicians who are tinkering with the idea about joining the bandwagon. The money they can expect from their support to the ABS-CBN cause will be overshadowed by the political fallout from an angry public.
