Quotable quotes

PRESIDENT Duterte was asked during frat initiation if he was the son of the Davao governor: “Fraternity members are brutal to recruits, especially when the recruits are from prominent families.”

Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano: “The adoption of our UPR Report during the 36th Regular Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva this week demonstrates that the Philippines has nothing to hide with its human rights record. President Duterte has always made it clear from the beginning that respect for human rights will always be a priority of his administration. The Philippines will remain resolute in its respect for and protection of human rights as it strives to improve the lives and welfare of each and every Filipino by protecting them from the scourges of drugs and criminality. The Philippines remains fully committed to meeting its human rights obligations in compliance with the Constitution and international human rights obligations. The dignity of the Filipino people is uppermost among our priority concerns.”

The Philippines scored a big victory in Geneva last Sunday when the United Nations Human Rights Council overwhelmingly adopted the Philippine’s Human Rights Report Card, and pledged continued progress. Cayetano welcomed the final adoption of the 3rd Philippine Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Report by the 47-member Council, saying this is affirmation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s commitment to honor the country’s human rights obligation.

Senator Trillanes’s news item in my Inbox: “Ngayong umaga, nag-file po tayo ng various cases laban kay Ms. Mocha Uson.” TAYO? Wala kang case na kasama ako! What are you talking about? Tayo...you and I?You and I did not file any case against ASec Uson. You’re emanating fake news about me. Indulging in fake news is illegal. You said “nag-file tayo”? UNLESS... did you mean, “Ngayong umaga, nag-file po KAMI...” In which case, it is kayo, you and whomever. Hindi ako kasama, hindi tayo. Trillanes may have to again sit in high school National Language and learn better the use of pronouns.

Sen. Juan Miguel F. Zubiri: “Mr. President, I rise on a matter of personal and collective privilege. I filed Proposed Senate Resolution No. 504, which condemns in the strongest sense the death of UST freshman law student Horacio “Atio” Castillo III due to hazing and calls for a Senate investigation in aid of legislation. I thought that the resolution I filed will be enough to assuage my sense of duty as a legislator to investigate this gruesome death. But when I visited the wake of Atio last night and talked to his bereaved family, particularly to his father, Horacio Jr. or Toti as we call him, who was my grade school and high school classmate in Colegio San Agustin, it behooves me as a father, as a parent to make a privilege speech on the matter by condemning this brutal act and bring to the public consciousness the gravity of this evil called ‘hazing’. I cannot turn my back to the plea of a grieving parent, as I believe no parent deserves to lose a child, much more due to hazing.”

VP Leni Robredo: “...45 years...! After 14 years of suffering military rule, we have not learned. The victims are not just those who are against the [Duterte] government. All the children killed because of this culture of violence.” Leni, please... involved are three children (not 30 children, not 300), two cases which up to today are still under investigation. Arnaiz, 17 and De Guzman, 14, sneaked out of their homes at midnight to hold up a taxi driver with a deadly weapon at 1 a.m. De los Santos, 17, known to be a runner by drug-dealing adults in his home community. The investigations of both cases still going on. It is presumptuous of Robredo to pass judgment, announce conclusions way ahead of the courts. She is disseminating fake-news, which is illegal.

ASec. Mocha Uson: “Martial law under the present Constitution is very different from the 1972 martial law. That 1972 Marcos martial law basically threw everything out, including the Constitution. There was a regime change, a change of rules, a dictatorial government. In the present [Duterte] martial law, the courts are functioning, Congress continues to review; the President still has limited functions.” 
1972 Martial Law: The Constitution was invalidated, nullified. Thirty-thousand opposition figures detained--journalists, students, activists, political oppositionists. Weapons from securities, politicians, citizens confiscated. Supreme Court, all courts, Congress, radio, television closed down. Newspaper and magazine buildings and entrances were padlocked, boarded up by soldiers. PMA armory raided. Civil rights, habeas corpus suspended. Only military law prevailed with salvaging, beatings, rape, electrocution, animal treatment, mutilation torture methods employed on those apprehended. Companies critical of the administration were closed down. 
2017 Martial Law in Mindanao did not implement any of the above of the 1972 Martial Law. The extrajudicial killings attributed to the administration were results of the suppression of the drug dealers and narcopolitics. The administration’s PNP did not suddenly go into a killing rampage. The street violence is the result of the war on drugs and the proliferation of hired killers. What is erroneously called the administration’s extrajudicial killings have nothing to do with the administration or Duterte.

Unbridled brazenness

DODY LACUNA's picture

‘Outrage over the killing of priests today in our country will persist and, if real justice is not served soon will, in all probability, combine for a growing social and political unrest with a polarized Church.’
