The End of the Road For Senator Antonio Trillanes IV

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has some old issues against President Rodrigo Duterte. I thought these allegations were already resolved. I thought he got the answer from the BPI manager that such accusations were not real. In reality, Trillanes should be background check since he himself has some allegations of corruption of where he got the money from that worth millions of pesos TV commercials just to destroy Duterte's reputations before the actual May 2016 election.     

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said "Sen. Trillanes has no position to order President Duterte to open his bank account when the senator
 himself is hiding something. Ask these questions, who are his sponsors that spent millions of pesos for TV ads during the campaign last May 2016 elections? How much did Trillanes receive for doing this?"

Trillanes could not prove anything that Duterte has millions of pesos in his bank account. He made this accusation before but then it was proven as hearsay against Duterte and the BPI manager told that these allegations from Senator Trillanes were not real. Thus, Trillanes has no credibility at all.

As what Mocha Uson said to her blog post, Trillanes should also open his bank account to see if he has no illegal wealth. As far as I could remember, Trillanes already said that he would resign as a senator if his disclosure was wrong, but it was wrong and the BPI manager said that the former mayor of Davao City had no millions of pesos in his bank account.

So, what is Trillanes trying to prove? I don't know. He is making accusation without concrete evidence. Perhaps, this is one of the tactics of the opposition as what Senator Alan Peter Cayetano said, "this is a desperate attempt of Senator Trillanes to stop the reforms that are happening now kasi marami sigurong padrino niya o nasa likod nya at tinatamaan ng reforms na nagaganap ngayon."

Watch Video: German National Threatens A Filipino Driver in Parañaque City

A foreign driver, either Danish or German, caught in camera intimidating, banging the car's door and being physically aggressive to a Filipino driver as this is how Jessica Kaye Ignacio described the foreigner who threatened the driver of their car.

According to Judge Maria Roma, in Parañaque City also known as Rarity bgsc on Facebook, the foreigner is driving a Nissan Xtrail with plate no. ZEP 994 who got off his car and almost hit their vehicle. Angrily, this outsider wanted a fight against a Filipino motorist who remained calm at the wheel despite hostile behavior shown to him. 

Rarity called the police. After she called the police, this foreign national suddenly responded to a foreign language, denying that he could understand English. The lady judge said, "when he realized that I wasn't backing off, and after I introduced myself, he hurriedly left the vehicle, and escaped."

Rarity called this foreigner as a "bully." In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "road bullying happens in any part of the globe, but it should not be tolerated and accepted as this would result physical harm among drivers and passengers. As much as possible, stay calm during road rage."

After the incident happened last February 14, a Valentine's Day in Parañaque City, Philippines, Ms. Ignqcio shared this post in social media. 

Through thousand shares on Facebook, this foreigner was identified by the police officials and concerned citizens who helped Jessica Kaye Ignacio and Maria Roma so that this incident would never happen again to anyone. 

Ms. Ignacio and Ms. Roma have expressed their hard feelings and anger about the incident as they could not stand and watch those abusive drivers who are road-rage bullies. I think we should not be silent witnessess of road bullying. SPEAK UP!

Watch Video: 'Generous' Senator Manny Pacquiao Starts Giving Houses To Homeless Filipinos

Senator Manny Pacquiao is not the only a global boxing icon, but he is also the real champion for the poor Filipinos. Nobody in the senate would dare to spend and give houses as this, what Pacquiao did to the poor is sharing God's blessings to the needy.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said "Senator Pacquiao brought many tears of joy to the poor families especially those homeless who could not afford building decent houses." 

Senator Pacquiao wrote this: 

Senator Pacquiao knows how to be poor because he came from a poor family. Hospitality is not something new for Filipinos, in fact, many Filipinos are known to be hospitable. Mr. Dy said, "it is a trait displayed by a lot of Filipinos in and outside the country."

The low cost houses that Senator Pacquiao gave to the homeless Filipinos would bring millions of smiles on their faces. These are simple but decent houses because the senator would like to build good communities that are law-abiding citizens with love and respect to other people.

The senator led the ceremony before giving the houses he built to the masses. It is something one of the needs of people in life is to have a shelter. Pacquiao knew that it is difficult to have a house especially if you have no good source of income. It would take years for an ordinary worker or government employee to build it. 

Though not everyone is lucky enough to be selected, Pacquiao continues to believe that he is going to continue what he started, giving houses to the homeless and giving donations to the poor people. 

This video was posted by Mocha Uson on her blog, an evidence that the 'generous' Senator Manny Pacquiao donated houses to the 100 lucky homeless Filipinos.

Manny Pacquiao Versus Jeff Horn Fight is Set On April 23 in UAE?

Senator Manny Pacquiao is expecting to defend his WBO welterweight title against Australian Jeff Horn on April 23 in the United Arab Emirates, but the venue is still not fixed yet even though Pacquiao confirmed it on his twitter that it is gonna be in the Middle East.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, a boxing fan of Pacquiao. He said "Pacquiao's bout in either Dubai or Abu Dhabi will help our Filipino boxing fans to see the real fight between the two exciting boxers in the world today. This fight will garner a big support for there are many Filipinos who work in the Middle East and will definitely watch it."

Though a lot of Aussie boxing fans of Jeff Horn want the fight to happen in Australia or somewhere else, promoters in United Arab Emirates have promised that this fight is going to be the biggest hit this year as Middle East has a huge boxing audience as well.

Aside from being a global boxing icon, Pacquiao is also known as the most generous senator in the Philippines. He shared his blessings to the poor and is considered as one of the most trusted politicians today including Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

Some Pacquiao's fans want him to quit boxing, but the eight-world champion believes that he still can do it. Aside from bringing fame and honor into the country, Pacquiao admits that he really loves the sport and this is something he wants to do to earn big money in a honest way. 

Mr. Dy said, "Pacquiao should be an inspiration for everyone because he works hard every day. Despite being a successful boxer and politician, he is always a humble person. Both feet on the ground, always." 

Pacquiao's adviser Canadian Michael Koncz and his promoter Bob Arum is going to finalize the actual venue in the days to come, but there is a big chance that the bout is going to happen in UAE as Pacquiao said that his next bout will be expected in this country. It always depends about the feedback of boxing supporters around the world and Arum who knows where he can get a big pay-per-view event.

Online Survey: Do You Agree or Disagree With The Death Penalty?

Online Survey: Do you Agree or Disagree With The Death Penalty?



An eye for an eye. You take someone's life , I take yours. If you are against the death penalty, think of this question, "What if someone has done harm to your family?" 

I do not think that everyone deserves to die because someone wants him or her without even doing a crime. In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "I believe death penalty should be given out to those who are definitely guilty of heinous crimes." 

Let us not wait until one of our family members becomes a victim by this cruel criminal. It is not right to reward murderers by keeping them alive with their crimes. If they are garbage to society, then it is the right of the government to throw them away either inside the prison or cemetery. 

I do not want innocent people suffer and I believe that a lot of innocent people are going to be killed because we do not have capital punishment in our country.
Remember, these murderers can do whatever they want to do by taking someone else's right to life.

I do not know why it is hard for our lawmakers to understand the real situation in the Philippines. So many instances, criminals do not pay for the heinous crimes they committed. Mr. Dy said, "if criminals have been proven 100% guilty, I think death penalty should be applied to have a justice for their victims."

One Facebook user said, "bring back shootings or killings!" Others said, we need lethal injection to make it simple and easy, but others disagreed since it would make criminals even more comfortable without feeling the pain of the victims.

I understand that everyone wants peace and harmony to society, but how can people achieve all of these if some lawmakers, human rights advocates, and CBCP do not want the restoration of death penalty in the country. I think we've been presented wrong interpretations about death penalty by these 'pro-lifers.'

If death penalty can save more innocent lives and reduce crime rates, so be it. I don't understand why these so-called pro life people are against it and focus so much on extrajudicial killings, blaming the Duterte administraton for the killings of these drug pushers and heartless criminals. They are good critics, but none of them are good enough in finding a solution on how to prevent crime in the country.

Watch Video: Accidents Can Be Avoided If Drivers Have A Proper Discipline On The Road

Last July 6, 2016, I wrote an article entitled should reckless drivers be penalized For Not Respecting Pedestrians? Definitely, Yes!

"Reckless driving should not be tolerated in the Philippines," Mr. Alon Calinao Dy said. Many Filipino drivers do not respect pedestrians. They do not give way to people who are using pedestrian lanes. That is why accident like in this video, is more common nowadays.

According to some reports, a CCTV footage captured the incident last February 9, 2017, wherein students and parents walked at Prado Saba Elementary School, around 7:58 in the morning when the Bataan Transit Bud with a body no. 2942 hit Mrs. Alma Lalic Alfaro, 38 years old, and two of her children, a 6-year-old Ann Lorraine, a 3-year-old Lorenz Albert.

Mr. Dy added "it seems the respect we had, is gone." I don't think respectful drivers would do such thing. I don't think we respect and value life these days. We need to correct this problem. If there is a pedestrian lane with people crossing along, then every careful driver should stop and respect pedestrians. 

I could blame the bus driver and the one who made a go signal to cross the pedestrian lane or either way, but every good and disciplined driver should think the safety of everyone not only their passengers but also the people who are on the road.

A Call Center Agent Woman Killed During Robbery At Guadalupe Bridge in Mandaluyong City

A 24-year-old call center agent, Eleanor Gonzales, was killed last February 10 while walking at Guadalupe Bridge in Mandaluyong City by an unidentified holdup man. Ms. Gonzales was a breadwinner of the family that worked at Makati-based call center company. 

Guadalupe Bridge in Mandaluyong City has no CCTV camera and this perpetrator is still at large and could do more killings to innocent people who work hard for their respective families. 

"It is sad to know that another victim of robbery was killed by this cruel-animal killer," Mr. Alon Calinao Dy said on his blog post.

According to Mr. Dy, he asked, "how many more innocent lives will be at stake because some alleged corrupt politicians do not want death penalty in our country?" 

A priest commented to the blog I posted and asked, "if killing to the criminals will be allowed in the country, what makes you different from other criminals?" I answered, if killing will save more innocent lives, I would not consider myself as a criminal but a hero.

I do not understand why some religious leaders are great pretenders. It is okay for them that the family members of the victims suffer. I do not understand why they misinterpreted the meaning of "thou shall not kill" by God when in fact they tolerated these criminals to live free. Mr. Dy said, "stop being too kind and caring when you know you are not."

“Eleanor was a very kind daughter. She never answers back. She had big dreams for us. She wanted to save up to give us a house, and send her youngest sibling to school,” according to her grieving mother. 

Remains of  Eleanor were brought to her hometown in Zamboanga City. Though the family of Gonzales is asking for justice, these incidents happened almost in different parts in Metro Manila, and these criminals can easily get away with their crimes because victims have no time and afraid to file a case against them. Mr. Dy said,  "swift justice should be made such as the restoration of death penalty in the Philippines."

Justice will not be achieved for Ms. Gonzales for as long as there are criminals out there who are free to do whatever they want to do. 

Justice will not be served for as long the country is not safe as there are drug protectors and corrupt politicians out there who abuse their power. 

Justice will never happen if there is someone like Ms. Gonzales who is a victim of poverty. There is poverty because we allow rampant corruption in our society. It happens in government agencies, churches, private sectors, and everywhere.
