Presidential sister Jocellyn Duterte to Regine Velasquez: “Lahat ng laos na artista ginagamit si PRRD para sumikat!”

Presidential sister Jocellyn Duterte Villarica slammed Asia’s song bird Regine Velasquez for calling out President Rodrigo Duterte’s controversial statement against God.

In her Facebook post, Duterte who addressed Velasquez to her acronym “R.V”  believes that every outdated artist is trying to criticize the President to catch the attention of the public again to gain popularity again.

Duterte said that artists who are already not receiving showbiz projects should not enter politics because of their incompetence.

She added that the only reason why the people are voting them is that of their celebrity status.

The presidential sister said that celebrities should be merciful enough to the people and avoid entering public service to give a chance to the aspiring politicians who are knowledgeable and competent enough to enter politics.

Duterte urged the artists to help the President instead of criticizing him.

You can read her whole post below:

SHOWBIZ ALA POLITIKA

Lahat ng mga “laos” na artista ginagamit si PRRD pra sumikat!

Halos lahat ng artista pumasok sa politika, wala talagang alam at dinadaan lng sa kanilang celebrity status, at popularidad…

Gusto na ng taong-bayan magbago, maawa kayo sa bayan, kng wla naman tlaga kayong magawa na mabuti dahil hindi naman kayo qualified, hindi ko nilalalahat!

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque revealed that Vice President Leni Robredo attempted to join the Cabinet of the Duterte administration again, several days before the latter announced her intention to lead the opposition.

Roque made the revelation after the opposition’s move to boost their popularity and push Robredo to become their leader.

The spokesperson wished that Robredo already know his role in the government after she chose to lead the opposition.

“Sinabi naman namin eh importante rin ang oposisyon sa demokrasya. Pero good luck po, at sana po ay malinaw na ang papel ni Leni Robredo dahil nitong kailan lamang po eh parang nag-a-apply muli siya sa gabinete ni Presidente. So, ngayon at least mayroon na siyang desisyon na sa oposisyon na siya at hindi na siya umaasa na makapasok muli dito sa gabinete ng ating Pangulo,” ani Roque.

Roque didn’t disclose what position did Robredo was seeking in the Cabinet.

As of writing Robredo is not yet releasing a statement on the claim of the Palace.

Some netizens believe that this move of Robredo is connected to the upcoming 2019 elections and the opposition is moving to get a leader that would match Duterte.

Villars abandon Las Piñas twice over as Em joins DOJ

Residents of Las Piñas City are now left without a representative in Congress after the lawmaker chosen to be their “caretaker” was appointed to the Department of Justice.

DIWA party-list Rep. Emmeline Aglipay Villar has been appointed as Justice Undersecretary, the agency announced Wednesday (July 10) in a press release.

Emmeline became the “caretaker” of the lone district of Las Piñas after her husband, Mark Villar, was appointed to head the Department of Public Works and Highways in 2016.

Mark won his re-election bid before becoming a Cabinet Secretary.

Las Piñas is known as the turf of the Villars. Its mayor, Vergel Aguilar, is the brother of Senator Cynthia Villar.

The House leadership has yet to announce which politiko will assume the “caretaker” role for Las Piñas following Emmeline’s departure from Congress.

De Lima wants to make use of child car seats mandatory

Detained Senator Leila de Lima has proposed a measure requiring every private vehicle to install child car seat system to protect children from getting injured or killed from vehicular accidents.

She filed Senate Bill No. 1862 which amends Republic Act No. 8750, also known as “Seat Belts Use Act of 1999,” to address a legislative gap in the law that is only designed to protect adult passengers.

“Aside from the seat belt requirement, motorists of privately-owned vehicles are now required to install and to use child restraint system for infant and young children passengers,” she said.

Based on a Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) report, an average of 667 children–ages 14 years old and below–died in road accidents from 2006 to 2015.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), the use of child restraint systems can reduce deaths among infants by approximately 70% and among small children by between 54% and 80%.

It also claimed that the use of child restraint system can change up to 80% on the risk of injury for children aged 0-4 in a rear facing restraint, while children aged 0-4 with only a seat belt can change the risk of injury only by 32%.

De Lima, a grandmother of two, noted that under RA 8750, drivers and passengers are required to use seat belts while children below six years old are prohibited from sitting in front seat of a vehicle.

However, the law only protects adults since regular seatbelts are not designed to protect infants and young children from injuries or death due to sudden stop or vehicular accidents.

“Infants and children need a more specific type of design to protect them during a collision because a seat belt will not prevent trajectory or injuries,” De Lima said.

“Notwithstanding the child being secured in a child restraint system, at no instance shall he or she be left unaccompanied by an adult in a motor vehicle,” she added.

Under her proposed measure, only children from six to 12 years old are allowed to sit in front of vehicles, except when the child is at least 150 centimeters in height and capable to properly fit in the regular seat belt in the front seat.

SBN 1862 proposes for higher penalties on violators ranging from minimum fine of P100 to P1,000 for the first offense and to P500 to P2,000 for the succeeding violation.

“This is in response to news reports that according to the Land Transportation Office, the most frequently committed traffic violation in the years 2013, 2014 and 2016 is non-compliance with the Seat Belts Use Law,” De Lima said.

De Lima was detained at the Phil. National Police Custodial Center in February 2017 on drug charges.

Magaling siya! Kiko defends Leni’s leadership after Duterte’s tirades

Senator Francis Pangilinan defended the leadership of Vice President Leni Robredo after President Rodrigo Duterte said she is “incompetent” and would be unfit to lead the country.

Duterte’s scathing criticism of Robredo came hours after she declared she was willing to lead the opposition. Pangilinan underscored that the opposition being formed “revolves around her compassionate, empowering, and responsible leadership.”

“Her declaration to lead this coalition only formalizes what has been her role since her election into office two years ago: a stabilizing balance to those in power and their mistaken policies and their abuse of the people’s trust that put them in power,” Pangilinan said in a statement Wednesday (July 11).

”Now, amid the naked rule of force, utter disrespect for life, and abandonment of the people, especially the poor, Vice President Leni is the voice of reason, calm, and sobriety,” he continued.

The President said Monday he would resign next year to give way to a new president who would oversee the transition to federalism if a new constitution is ratified.

However, he clarified yesterday evening in an ambush interview with Palace reporters that he would not be resigning to make way for Robredo to take the helm, but would want an election for a new president to take his place.

President Duterte meets Brother Eddie Villanueva: “I only apologize to God”

Jesus Is Lord Founder Brother Eddie Villanueva and President Rodrigo Duterte met in Malacanang, several days after the latter slammed some accounts on the Bible and mocked God during some of his speeches.

During their dinner meeting at the Malago Clubhouse in Malacanang on July 10, 2018, President Duterte explained his controversial remarks to Villanueva, saying that his only criticizing the God of his critics and not the God of everybody.

“If you review the tape, I said that my God is good, has common sense and does not create trouble for my country,” Duterte told Villanueva.

Duterte also apologized to God if the people misunderstood him and generalized his controversial statement.

The President also pointed out during the meeting that there’s a separation between the Church and State.

“You can criticize us anything at all, from the garbage collectors to the Generals and even to the Vice President and Senators, but never use the name of God as a front to attack the government, because that is not the proper way to do it,” Duterte said.

Villanueva also advised President Duterte to apologize directly to God which the latter agreed.

Duterte also explained that the religious people who are busy in criticizing him instead of doing good deeds to other people are the one who made their own concept of their “God”.

“If you feel that somebody is doing it wrong and invoking the name (of God), hey guy you just talking about the wrong God or that is it not God that is my God,”   Duterte said.

Finally, President Rodrigo Duterte said that he would apologize to God, but not to his critics who used God to criticize his policies in the government.

“I only apologize to God, nobody else,”

He also believes that his God would forgive him for what he said.

“He (God) would really happy to listen to my apology, why? because my God is all forgiving, why? because he does not remember past hurts, why? because God created me to be good and not to be bad,” Duterte said at the end of his speech.

Brother Eddie Villanueva is one of the religious leaders who slammed President Rodrigo Duterte for his controversial remarks and he demanded that the latter should apologize directly to God.

Duterte on Robredo’s ability: “She is not capabe of running a country like the PH”

It seems that the word war between President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo has started.

On Tuesday, the Vice President and former house czar of the Duterte administration expressed her intentions to unite and lead the opposition coalition to match the PDP’s bet in 2019 elections.

In the same day, President Rodrigo Duterte who said that he’s willing to resign if the Federalism has been passed clarified that he would give the people a chance to choose their leader and he will not pass the presidency to Robredo.

He explained that passing the Presidency to Robredo might give more problem in the Philippines because of his lack of experience in governance.

“Kung siya mag-presidente? (If she will become president?) Look, I will not resign because it will make her president. My resignation is addressed to the people para makapili sila ng gusto nila,” Duterte told reporters in Clark, Pampanga.

“Siya (she), I don’t think she can ever be ready to govern a country. Reason? Incompetence. She’s not capable of running a country like this, Philippines,” said Duterte of Robredo

President Duterte repeatedly said that he could step down in 2018 if the Federal Constitution is already in effect by then.

Robredo became the representative of Camarines Sur for three years and became the chairman of Liberal Party in her hometown, several months after her husband Jesse Robredo’s death.

The lawyer from Camarines Sur won the Vice Presidential seat against former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

But now, there’s an ongoing recount between Robredo and former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

The camp of the Vice President is also facing controversy after their revisor has been caught having a vacation together with at least 20 staff of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET).

As of writing, the leader of the opposition is not yet giving any comment on the criticisms of President Duterte against her.

 

Travel vlogger Nas Daily responds to a fan from U.P who urges him to feature Duterte’s war on drugs: “I’m not visiting countries to be a political analyst”

Travel vlogger who was known as “Nas Daily” is one of the most prominent social media personality this 2018 and he got fans in every country that he visited.

Nas for the second time, visited the Philippines again which he labeled as the “most lovable country” next to Malta.

His video quickly gained 170,000 reactions and 100,000 shares from his fans.

Some of his Filipino fans didn’t waste the opportunity to thank Nas for his contribution to promoting the Philippines.

However, one Filipino fan of Nas tried to convince the prominent video blogger to feature “politics” in the Philippines.

It seems that the fan wanted to use Nas’ tremendous amount of audience to demote the Philippines by bringing up negative issues than promoting the country by spreading good vibes.

The student from University of the Philippines, in her comment, urged Nas to feature some of the issues being faced by the Philippines including the West Philippine Sea and anti-drug campaign.

“Dud, try to make a video about the politics behind alleged ‘ownership’, and claims behind some of the islands, as well as the policies being implemented. You’ll see just how much ‘love’ the leaders have for this country.” The netizen told Nas.

“Try looking up ‘Scarborough Shoal’, ‘Chinese navy seizing small-town fisherfolk catch’, ‘anti-drug campaign’, etc,”  she added.

Obviously, Nas who’s known for only spreading positive topics on Facebook refused the request of his fan.

The vlogger explained that he’s not a political analyst to talk about politics in his blog and also he was already fed up with the politics in his home country.

“Every country I go to has the same issues. I’m not visiting countries to be a political analyst. My home country has enough shit politics to last me a lifetime.” Nas told his fan.

The reply of Nas to his fan received 10,000 reactions as of writing, mostly from the Filipinos who are also tired of talking about politics.

hahaha too bad Nas is not the type who’d fall for your trap. He just said disregard politics and traffic. Don’t be a crab, join the fun!” netizen Jon Quebral said.

“You really had to bring this up.. Seriously..” Netizen Em Jay commented.

“Why on earth are you talking about politics when Nas is talking about us Filipinos being hospitable and lovable? Nas! You and Alynn should visit Cebu. Pleaaaaase!!” Netizen Angelica Marie Angus remarked

The lesson for today: Don’t ask a travel blogger to talk about politics.

Thank you, Nas for promoting the Philippines!

“She don’t need my endorsement” Kris Aquino says that Inday Sara Duterte “a sure winner” in 2019 senatorial elections

Popular talk show host Kris Aquino believes that Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte doesn’t need her endorsement if the latter wanted to run for a national position in 2019.

Aquino explained it to one of her fans on Instagram who asked her she would endorse Inday Sara Duterte in the upcoming senatorial elections.

“@krisaquino Do you like Mayor Inday Sara Duterte @indaysaraduterte to be Senator and will you endorse her?” jepot_ph asked Kris.

The talk show host said that she doesn’t know Inday Sara Duterte personally, but she was amazed by how the daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte recovered on some difficulties and issues threw against her.

Aquino believes that Inday Sara would be a sure winner in the upcoming elections, so she felt that her endorsement would not be needed.

“I don’t personally know her but I admire her resilience… I don’t think she needs my endorsement – she’s a sure winner,” Kris told her fan.

Yesterday, Pulse Asia released their newest survey results conducted from June 15-21 and it showed that Inday Sara Duterte moved to between third to fifth place with 46.2 percent voter preference in the so-called “Magic 12.”

However, despite the high popularity received by Inday Sara, the Davao City Mayor insisted that she’s not interested in running in a national position.

But she also warned her critics in her past Facebook post that if they mention her name again, she would give them a hard time in the 2022 elections, a clue that there’s a possibility that Inday Sara tried to follow the footsteps of her father.

Leave me in peace in Davao City or else you and your friends will spend more than a billion in the 2022 Presidential elections just to make me insignificant. Let me repeat, do not bother me and my slot will be available for a yellow Senator for the 2019 elections” Inday Sara Duterte said in her past Facebook post.
