Lozada and Neri: Tears for Fears





The latest entry in Pinoy Press' blog is the second installment in Lozada's testimony, the first part which took all of 8 hours Friday and had everyone glued to their radios and TVs. It was a phenomenal blockbuster. This revelation by Black and White Movement's Enteng Romano is as explosive as Glorietta and the Batasan blasts put together.

What’s good that would come out of Enteng’s decision to preeempt whatever "accident" that may happen in the Senate in today's hearings, by publishing this writeup by Senate witness Jun Lozada, and it’s now out in the open, there is now the opportunity to read these statements into the records of the Senate:

1. Arroyo casually told him (Neri) to ignore it (Abalos’ bribery attempt) and work for its recommendation for approval anyway.

2. When he (Neri) tried to reason that it may not be accommodated in the Chinese ODA package because it has been filled up with a list of projects already, (Gloria) Arroyo again ordered him to remove the low cost housing project and some water project to accommodate the ZTE-NBN deal in the ODA loan.

3. When he (Neri) attempted to reason that it may not be approved in time for the Boao Forum which was only two days to go from that fateful April day, (Gloria) Arroyo with raised voice told him to include the ZTE-NBN project in the agenda of the following day’s meeting of a combined NEDA Board and Cabinet Committee, who as expected promptly approved the project paving the way for the contract signing between ZTE and DOTC in China the next day.

Logically, the immediate question that would be asked of Lozada is, “Do you confirm what Enteng Romano said that it was you who wrote this?” And as Lozada answers in the positive, official Senate records would reflect another wrongdoing attributed to the administration, with Gloria explicitly named as the perpetrator.

And let us not be fooled that the truth is hinged on Lozada’s testimony alone. It was exposed first by JDV3 in the past hearings, suggested by Jarius Bondoc in many past columns, hinted at by Neri himself, and soon, a few more witnesses who have been part of the botched NBN deal. I also have this feeling it had been intimated already by Neri himself in that eventful executive session since the palace hacks in the Senate are threatening anyone who divulges the same with removal from the chamber.

These three things are very damaging in itself, let alone the accompanying death threats and “soft-touch” kidnapping that had been committed in the cover-up of the huge commissions that would have been pocketed by a few brokers, cronies, and spouse.

The inevitable end has come for the large scale plunder of the nation’s wealth never before seen in this damned country’s history, the brazeness of how it was carried out, the accompanying arrogance by which truth was muzzled, the wholesale destruction of all institutions that embody true democratic values, and the unbelievable criminal ends by which we, the people, are made to suffer to break our collective spirit so that this marauding syndicate calling itself government can further strengthen its grip on a country successfully terrorized by its own leaders.

All laws whether universal, human, and divine, have been violated. Sure, they can twist the man-made rules to fit their diabolic interests. But not those that were established by the physical universe, moreso those by the Omnipotent Being who created everything.

God bless the Philippines.

Gmlet,
This fight is not about classes, it's about right and wrong, truth vs. lies, good vs. evil. We're all in this together.

What matters most is that we are all doing our part, however small that may be, to ensure that we make it known to all that we will not not leave the future of our children, and our children's childres, decided by a few criminals masquerading as our leaders.

Our victory is sure to come, but it must not stop there. REMOVING THIS EVIL REGIME IS JUST THE START.

All I know is that Neri needs an appointment with the dentist. My God look at his teeth! You'd think that someone who suggests "moderating greeds" might be able to afford a denture.

Which gives me a good idea. Why not appoint some extremely sadistic dentist who will keep drilling him until he discloses information he's currently claiming "executive privilege" for? Hahaha

Hi Tongue!

Just came over from mlq3's blog thread Konfrontasi (I think) to read some of the comments and stumbled on your bisto: "Thanks, Titanium thanks...."

Tawa ako ng malakas. Hahahah!
