• Comelec to ‘fix’ 2016 polls for Roxas?


    With just a little over a year left till the Noynoy administration’s term ends, it is now using the government machinery and its resources to salvage Mar Roxas’ faint viability as the ruling Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer in the May 9, 2016 elections.

    Roxas himself has used his position as Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary to gain more visibility and to improve his sagging ratings in voters’ choice for president.

    But it is clearly indicated that he is bound to lose even if he used up the billions of pesos in pork barrel funds that President Noynoy and Budget Sec. Butch Abad are said to have embezzled under the illegal Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

    Roxas has dismally trailed Vice President Jojo Binay, Senator Grace Poe, Manila Mayor Erap Estrada, Sen. Miriam Santiago, Sen. Chiz Escudero and even Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in various polls and surveys, and social media websites have consistently showed Roxas a loser in his bid to succeed Noynoy.

    Noynoy’s own satisfaction ratings have plunged in the wake of the whitewash-cover-up on the Mamasapano massacre of 44 Special Action Force (SAF) commandos by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), which outraged the nation in a way that the massive corruption committed under the DAP did not.

    The shameless lies and arrogance of an insensitive and treacherous Commander-in-Chief, who had spent weeks “noynoying” before acting to help super-typhoon Yolanda victims, shattered Roxas’ dream of becoming president.

    In the first place, how can Noynoy endorse Roxas after treating him like a mascot by shutting him out of Oplan Exodus and designated suspended policeman Alan Purisima to take charge instead?

    It is also clear now that Noynoy’s endorsement of Roxas will be nothing but a “kiss of death.”

    So, Malacañang is mulling to fill the posts of the Commission on Election (Comelec) chairman with a rabid Noynoy crony in what some camps allege is designed “to railroad” next year’s presidential polls for Roxas.

    Noynoy has deferred the appointment of a Comelec chairman to replace retired Sixto Brillantes, Jr., who signed a new contract with the much-maligned Smartmatic, supplier of the despised precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines.

    This president again would show his lack of delicadeza if he appoints a known political protégé instead of basing his choice on competence and integrity.

    But then again, how can an incompetent chief executive, who has lost credibility and the trust of the people, pick a respectable Comelec chairman.

    Needless to say, the public must be vigilant against Malacañang’s ill-designs copied from the previous administration.

    Fontana villas used as illegal gambling dens
    Illegal aliens allegedly nestle in Fontana villas in the former Clark Field in Angeles City and in another casino resort in Laoag City in Ilocos Norte.

    My informants say hundreds of Chinese and Koreans of dubious immigration status are staying in the real property owned by Macau-based casino mogul Jack Lam, who is also operating illegal online casino in the said resorts.

    Authorities from the Bureau of Immigration (BI) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) have rounded up a number of illegal aliens involved in illegal gambling but Lam and officials of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) allegedly coddle many more of them.

    Lam’s Jimei Group allegedly offers the Chinese and Korean nationals “visas” to engage in the online casino business.

    Jimei Group is licensed by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to operate land-based casino resort.

    The group is not licensed by the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA).

    In exchange for Lam’s and CDC officials’ “protection,” the aliens were asked to buy or lease villa properties worth millions of pesos and these units are used in the unlicensed online gambling operations.

    Apart from the protection of corrupt CDC officials, the mafia-like syndicate, who reportedly rake in millions of dollars in profit, also has the “right connections” in Malacañang.

    Unlike those duly-licensed by PAGCOR or CEZA, Lam’s associates do not pay any taxes to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

    The government, particularly the CDC and Pagcor should now review if it is still worth renewing Jimei Group’s license with its questionable operations in Clark and Laoag.

    1. Why are you so afraid of Mar Roxas? Now you are insinuating the the Comelec will turn tides just to let Mar win. He is not a declared candidate yet but paid hackers of Binay just like you predicts his zero chance. Why waste your energy attacking him if he had no chance at all. You know that your brain washing will not work anymore once he declares his candidacy. By the way who spend billions of pesos to be elected as VP by buying the PCOS results in the last election?

    2. The huge part of the big fix are the P300-million “midnight deal” between the recently retired Comelec chair Sixto Brillantes and Smartmatic-TIM PCOS refurbishment/maintenance and the planned P14-billion supplementary budget to buy new counting machines.

      • The super corrupt yellow-blue LP regime of PNoy and Mar Roxas will use all the resources of the gov’t which at present is in their hands to secure LP victory and their continued cling to power and purse of the nation. The people must know their evil plans.

      Of course,the Aquino-approved Comelec decision to use the Smartmatic Automated Election System using PCOS machines with all the anti-fraud features ILLEGALLY disabled will make the Aquino-LP candidate–whether it’s Roxas, Drilon, Belmonte or the Malacanang janitor!!!!

      • I guarantee you that no amount of cheating will ever put any simyon stooge to ever sit as president of this country. If Filipinos were hoodwinked before with sloganeering, no amount of money can buy their votes again. Should they cheat and the real choice of the people does not come out from the results of the polls, there will be bloodbath because all right thinking Filipinos would not want to live another six years of corruption, mediocrity and stupidity that seem to be the trademark of any liberal party member as well as most legislators.

    4. Comelec would fix their machines to make Roxas win the 2016 election with the help of two yellow survey companies. First they would show Roxas was trailing behind in the survey. Little by little they would show Roxas was gaining until he surpassed Binay & Poe near the election day. These were the same tactic they did in last election. Trillanes, Cayetano were behind first then suddenly they were in the magic 8 in the survey to match the 60-30-10 Comelec bought and approved Smartmatic PCOS machines. Probably if manual counting were done last election Trillanes would be in the bottom.

      • yes the same tactic with the help of the survey companies and control of the magical hocos pcos machines are being employed by the Lapiang Pork. the only thing that does not fall into the plan is the continous drop of boy pickup in the ratings. instead of boy pickup, poe is the one catching up on biNOY. are we again experimenting with poe?? hindi na ba tayo nadala kay boy sisi?? so biNOY’s lead is being eaten slowly every survey time as planned. the only question in the plan by the Lapiang Pork is boy pickup. will the Lapiang Pork now revert to poe??

      • It is expected already that by November and December, 2015 Roxas rating will triple and post him just behind Binay by the yellow controlled and commissioned SWS and PulseAsia. This is to justify that they did cheated via Smartmatic or manual counting to win the election.

      Hoy Tulfo, takot ka na kay Binay? O baka naman, pareho ka ng ibang columnistas diyan a binayaran para tumahimik sa pag-kagahaman ng mga Binays sa pera ng gobiyerno. Magkano ba ang ibinigayni inay sa iyo para tumahimik ka? Kagaya ka ba ng mga huwes ng Court of Appeals?
