POLITICS really makes for strange bedfellows!

As if heeding the words of Benjamin Disraeli who said that finality is not the word of politics, a group that claims to espouse transparency and accountability in governance has came out and formed a political movement called Kilusang JoLen.



OPPOSING POLITICAL FENCES

The formation of Kilusang JoLen which is obviously supporting the candidacies of Vice President Jojo Binay and Rep. Leni Robredo who came from two opposing political fences, came at a time that the campaign period for the 2016 presidential elections is about to reach the homestretch.

But the convenors of the…

GRACE IS GOD'S CHOICE

It was steaming humid in Aling Nena's tiny living room, but lessening my discomfort were a swiveling fan, her velvety voice and engaging smile.

Over the past thirty years or so, I have seen Aling Nena over a dozen times for psychic readings, and WOW, who can doubt a blind seeress, now 75, who reads with stunning accuracy your life including the exact places of the moles on your body?!

With religious images stacked up on the wall behind her, and a deck of tarot cards spread out over her desk, she said (as translated from Tagalog), "Hello, Mr. Roy!…

MIRACLE MAN

Mar Roxas, the Liberal Party standard-bearer for president, is confident that he will win the 2016 presidential elections — not by popularity contests, empty promises or arrogant remarks, but by concrete actions and programs that will uplift the lives of every Filipino.

While his rivals — like Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Jejomar Binay — have relied on their…

PRES. MAR

By Roly Eclevia

A law dean believes former DILG chief Mar Roxas is the leading presidential candidate despite all the surveys that place him on the third or even fourth place. The surveys, he maintains, “are endogenously inaccurate.”

In an article posted on the internet March 31, Mel Sta. Maria, dean of FEU Law School, observes Mar Roxas obtained 11,213,563 votes in the 2010 elections. To win the 2016 presidential race, he need only keep his support base intact.

That spells trouble for the three other candidates: Sen. Grace Poe, Vice President Jejomar Binay, and Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

DUTERTE PRESIDENCY LOOMS

By Atty. Salvador S. Panelo

Few weeks to the presidential election in May, 2016, and there appears to be a Duterte fever sweeping the country. It is a contagion that can not be contained notwithstanding the onslaught of negative campaign against him by the forces that either resist change or are fearful of the unknown.

Hamstrung by lack of finances as the tough-talking and cuss-spewing Davao City Mayor refuses to accept financial contributions from the usual huge financiers in a conscious effort to avoid indebtedness to them – Duterte directly appealed to the people in a taped video aired over…
