Senators : Honasan, Sotto, Trillanes and Marcos

August 19,2010 Committee on Civil Service and Government Reorganization chaired by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV held its organizational meeting yesterday at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City where Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is detained in connection with the Oakwood mutiny in Makati City which was staged to dramatize their demand for the resignation of then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, now a Congresswoman representing her district in Pampanga. Sotto and the other senators wanted to get inputs from Senator Trillanes on how to improve coordination with other committee members.

What’s with Joker?

Posted: 12 Aug 2010 07:10 AM PDT

Sen. Joker Arroyo just won’t give up even if he had been reduced to stammering after he was proven wrong about his opposition to Senate Resolution 84 that seeks custody of detained Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV so could perform his duties as elected legislator.

Yesterday, Arroyo tried to block the implementation of the Senate resolution expressing the sense of the Senate “to rectify the apparent injustice” to the former military officer who dared stood up to Gloria Arroyo, by questioning the third and fourth “whereasses” in the resolution.

The third “whereas” referred to Senate Resolution No. 3 adopted on July 25, 2007 “Expressing the Sense of the Senate that Senator Trillanes IV be allowed to participate in the sessions and other functions of the Senate in accordance with the Rule of Law.”

Arroyo was adamant in his assertion that there was no 2007 Senate Resolution No. 3.

He also questioned the existence of the Nov. 11, 2008 Resolution 765 “Amending the Rules of the Senate by incorporating a rule to allow senators to participate in Senate sessions, hearings and meetings through remote or electronic means” in order to allow Trillanes, among others to participate in the sessions and other official functions of the Senate was

Trillanes’ lawyer Rey Robles gave Senate Majority Floor Leader Tito Sotto copies of the Senate records showing the existence of the two Senate resolutions.

Stammering, he still objected to Reso 84.

Probably to humor a senior colleague, Sotto deferred the filing of Reso 84 with before Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 148 next week.

It pains me to see Joker today. He was Malaya’s lawyer during the Marcos years. We owe the freedom we are enjoying now to his defense of those oppressed by the Marcos dictatorship.

But since he was elected to the Senate under Arroyo’s ticket, he has become Gloria Arroyo’s rabid defender. It’s obvious that his animosity to Trillanes has something to do with the young senator’s rebellion against Arroyo’s unelected presidency.

If Joker was a big disappointment, I admire Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri for signing on the resolution even if Trillanes was openly supporting Koko Pimentel in the latter’s election protest for the seat that Zubiri holds.

Although Zubiri qualified his signature “subject to the approval of the court” similar to that of Frank Drilon, Chiz Escudero, Gregorio Honasan, Francis Pangilinan, and Ralph Recto, it was still a notable gesture.

Other signatories of Reso 84 were Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, Senators Vicente Sotto III, Alan Peter Cayetano, Pia Cayetano, Jinggoy Estrada, Teofisto Guingona III, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Loren Legarda, Sergio Osmena III, and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.

Sen. Arroyo might want to know the sentiment of the people who blog towards his opposition to Trillanes performing his legislative duties:

Tongue-Twisted said, “Ano’ng ipinuputok ng butse ni Joker? Bigyan nga yan ng mag-asawang sampal sa punong-tenga para makalog ng konti ang utak. Kulang lang sa pansin ang huklubang ito.

“Hindi pa rin niya matanggap na siya ang isa sa mga pangunahing dahilan kaya nag-coup sila Gringo noon na nauwi sa pagkasibak niya bilang Executive Secretary ni Cory. Samantalang yung mga nag-coup nag-pushup lang.”

Parasabayan said, “Dapat naman na makapaglingkod siya sa over 11 million na bumuto sa kanya. Under the midget parang walang pag-asang makalabas si Sonny. Kay P-Noy, malaki ang pagasa niyang makalabas. Joker Arroyo is a big Joke!”

But there are also some who somewhat agree with Joker. Jerry Taclino said “The Senate stands on shaky ground airing its sentiment in favor of a colleague who faces a court case. For sure the accused senator can ably defend himself legally. Meanwhile, let him face the consequences of his action.”

At the ABS-CBN website, JVcious23 reminded Joker of his campaign slogan: What happened to ‘kapag bad ka, lagot ka!’Broken promises.

“Haaay, Joker, retire now and just take good care of your health.
