Ping Ping de Sarapin…How How the Carabao

The son (Sen. Jinggoy Estrada) has spoken. Ping is accused of  (Sen. Panfilo Lacson)  fabricating lies and an agent of the Arroyo’s administration. So, what’s new with Ping Lacson who is always using his parliamentary immunity with countless but unsubstantiated expose in the Senate? Estrada branded Lacson’s statements as  “gutter talk, hearsay and fishwives’ tales.” Short of telling his father’s accuser to shut up. Yes, shut up Senator Ping!

But why should Senator Ping Lacson shut up? Two people came out in the open to upheld  his statement as truth. Alfonso Yuchengco, businessman, said president Estrada pressured and harrassed him to sell his shares in PLDT; on the other hand former Ilocos Sur Governor and now Deputy National Security Adviser Luis “Chavit” Singson confirmed that the former President was a protector of the illegal numbers game better known as Jueteng. “Anak ng Jueteng,” is how Ping described his exasperation on his policy differences with Erap Estrada regarding the illegal numbers game. And so, who is lying? And, who should shut up instead?

As expected Jinggoy has to protect the image of his father. He is none of those things Ping Lacson said about the former President. Even former cabinet secretaries during Estrada’s administration issued statement that their boss never gave direct orders as he himself respected the chain of command. This belied Lacson’s claim that former President Estrada “micro managed” and gave direct orders  to his men thus had bypassing the former PNP Chief during Erap’s presidency. Energy Secretary Angelo Reyes (one of the EDSA 2 personalities), who served as a general in Mindanao and later as an AFP chief also said that he had not received any single irregular or much more to say  illegal orders from Estrada. And why should one believe Senator Lacson if even Angelo Reyes (as reported) himself praised Erap, “He had not asked me for anything that was in violation of the law. So, we have respect for each, and I am proud to say that there is nothing I can say that could tarnish the reputation of former President Estrada.” So there your are, isn’t Erap is clean and innocent?

“If President Estrada was indeed involved in smuggling, why did he not relieve PAOCTF and Mr. Lacson of the authority to act against smuggling and assigned this to another unit which will be more cooperative?” Jinggoy asked. And further he said, “If president Estrada is the devious criminal that Mr. Lacson would now portray him to be, why did Mr. Lacson go to great lengths to seek his endorsement, not once, not twice, but three times in the elections of 2001, 2004 and 2007?” As far a Jinggoy is concerned, Lacson has a “wicked dispositions” and a “selfish interests and self-serving agenda.” 

But why is Ping Lacson coming up with these revelations, which political analysts said timely, isn’t he only unvailing his true nature and color? On the other hand is he not only diverting public attention to the the Dacer-Corbito double murder case where he is implicated? But Lacson is quick to say he is not the only one being complained of by the Dacer family. If so, does this mean he wants former President Estrada to be implicated too? Or as an ordinary person in the streets may ask, naghahanap ba si Ping ng maidadamay din? Unfortunately Cesar Mancao’s lawyer, Ferdinand Topacio, cleared Estrada in  having a hand in the double murder case by saying there is no direct evidence that would link the former  President.

In further analyzing Ping’s expose, a grade school teacher may give him A for patriotism as he said he is doing this thing for the sake of the country. But just the same his values education teacher may give him a failing grade for honesty. Honesty may not necessarily who is telling the truth this time, it has something to do with what one really feels inside. It appears from his privilege speech that Ping has been harboring ill feelings against his former boss; his expose can be surmised as motivated by plain vengeful desire to ruin Estrada’s image that eventually leads to his debacle in the presidential race.

Giving Ping the benefit of the doubt of his real motive behind his actions, probably all he wants is to get rid presidentiables who may not be at all that worthy to be elected as President of the Philippines. Perhaps what he wants is to find one standard bearer for the opposition worthy of trust and confidence of the people. Could that credible someone be Noynoy Aquino? Was he not asking earlier for Erap to drop his intentions to run for president? But Erap responded by saying what good is it to listen to someone who in the past has the record of dividing the opposition which in effect gave Gloria Arroyo the victory?

Ping certainly continues with the second part of his expose but expect Jinggoy to stand in response with another privilege speech. But isn’t this thing further ripping apart the opposition?  If Malacanang is not happy with this development, I don’t know.

  1. Mer,
    May mga taong doble kara, salita nila ngayon ay iba na kinabukasan.

  2. Siya nga pala, sana ay hindi na patulan ni Jinggoy ang mga banat ni Ping. After all alam naman ng lahat na mahilig mag-grandstanding ito.

  3. Para sa akin lang dapat denededma na lang ng kampo ni Erap ang mga pahayag ni Ping. Magaling sa ganitong laban iyang si Ping, the more you react the more na mangiinis iyan.

  4. I-konek ninyo ito ha…

    Ang gf ni Noynoy na si Soledad ay dating staff ni Ping at itinuturing na anak daw kaya pati si Kris ay kataka-taka na pinatos ni Ping.

    Simple ang aking analysis. Si Soledad ang tulay ni Ping para pagkatiwalaan ni Noynoy ng isang delikadong assignment e.g. cabinet member or hepe ng AFP dahil last term na niya ngayon as senator.

    Maniwala ako na ang kanyang expose ay walang motibo. Si Noynoy ang pinaka-praktikal niyang masusuportahan na kung sakali ay ang first lady ay dating tauhan at ‘anak-anakan’ daw niya. Iba ang kultura ng pinoy, di ba? Baka gawing ninong pa siya ng dalawa kung sakaling magpasakal.

  5. Nanay Chi,
    Ako’y naniniwala din na isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit umatras si senador Lacson sa presidential race ay talagang alam niyang walang kahihinatnan ang kanyang pagtakbo kung hindi pagkatalo. At pangalawa, mahihirapan na rin siyang tumakbo at manalo pa sa alin mang mas mataas na posisyon sa lehislatura. The best na mangyayari sa kanya ay iyong ma-appoint siyang Defense Secretary o kung hindi man ay DILG Secretary. Tulay nga si Soledad gaya nang nasabi ninyo. Kaso baka may mga ibang nasa listahan na ngayon ni Noynoy. Ngunit malalim ang takbo ng pulitika sa atin, anong malay natin baka sa lantarang pagsuporta ni Ping kay Noynoy ay mareregalohan siya ng iba ring assignment. Hindi na masama iyong gawin siyang Hepe ng Bureau of Customs. After all ayon na rin sa kanya wala sa kanyang isipan ang magpayaman gamit ng pera ng bayan. Further away puwedi rin siyang gawing ambassador ng Pinas sa Afganistan, hehe.

    Pero the least that Ping can do ay iyong tumakbo siya bilang Governor ng Cavite. Kung si GMA ay may interest na tumakbo bilang representante, si Ping din kaya for governor?

    Pero para sa akin mas mainam para sa kanya ang maging kongresista, anong malay natin baka maging House Speaker pa siya o kaya majority floor leader.

    Hindi ko sinasabi na maka Ping Lacson ako. Sinasabi ko lang ang mga bagay na maari niyang gawin after his term as a Senator. Nasa kanya na kung ano ang gusto niyang gawin sa kanyang political career.

  6. Expose iyan ang paraan ni Ping Lacson para takutin ang kanyang mga kalaban sa Pulitika. Sinampelan niya si Villar ngayon naman si Erap. Baka pati si Teodoro na standard bearer ng administrasyon para sa presidential election ay may expose din siya.

    It appears that Ping Lacson is supporting a presidential candidate and his expose is one way to discredit their integrity that lessening their popularity.

  7. Ang mga palaka kapag umuulan ay malakas ang kokak.

    Kung kumukak man si Lacson,karapatan niya iyun dahil ang Charges and accusations protected by the immunities given to members of Congress.

    Kaya lang may be viewed as half-truths or intended to evade blame.But the revelations tend to educate the people in general and bring down politicians to new lows, in lieu of fantastic heights attributed to them. Speeches or remarks made under immunity are of incalculable usefulness.

    Kaya ang mga telesereng ganito ay patuloy-tuloy.

    Teka,kinasuhan na pala ni Erap si Yuchengco.Erap filed a P20 million libel suit against businessman Alfonso Yuchengco and the Philippine Daily Inquirer for claiming in a news article that he pressured him to sell his two million shares of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) stocks to business tycoon Manuel Pangilinan during his term in Malacañang.

  8. Ah, mas maigi pa na magkasuhan na sa korte at dun iprisinta ang ibidensya. Hindi naman sila si Panduck na hindi pa nagsasampa ng kaso ay todas na ang kalaban.

    Masyadong natatakpan ang tunay na isyu ng korapsyon at kababuyan ng pekeng unang pamilya. ’bout time na tumigil silang magdakdakan total ay naitsismis na nila sa atin ang kanilang mga baho.

  9. Tama po kayo, puro dakdakan lang diyan sa Senado. Kadalasan ang mga expose ay for political consumption lamang at not for the interest of the people and the country.

    Kaso may sinampahan na ng kasong libelo ni Presidente Erap. Masaya si Ping, may parliamentry immunity siya. E, yong mamang nagsalita pabor sa kanya, uungkating na naman ang kanyang mga isyu…

    Masaya po ito at abangan ninyo ang mga susunod pang kaganapan.

  10. A, naabsuwelto pala si Dumlao sa Dacer-Corbito murder case. Wetness, I mean gagawin na pala siyang state witness. May patutsada naman ang dating pulis na kahit masaya siya at nakalaya na ay nanganganib pa rin ang kanyang buhay.

    Ewan ko lang kung kakasuhan din siya ng libelo ni President Erap.

    Wow lumalapit ang election, dumarami ang mga isyu at kaganapan. History in the making na naman ang lahat ng mga ito.

    At pustahan tayo kung sino ang panalo sa lahat?

    Ang dalawang higanteng network at mga diyaryo na may laging scoop para sa kanilang mga parokyano o tagapagtangkilik.

  11. Mer,
    Nakagawa ka na rin ng tulay galing sa Cocoy’s Delight from your page to this Website.Mas madali na ngayon puntahan ang site mo.

    Spread the news to Kapitan Kidlat,Doc.Bobonyo,Segundiana at sa mga iba pa nating bloggers ang ginawa mong tulay.Hehehehe!

  12. Aha, ganun po ba. Salamat po.

    Kap, Doc., Seg puwedi na kayong tumulay sa Colegiala’s bridge. May bayad nga lang. Hehehe!

  13. Dumadami na ang tao doon sa malaking bahay.Inaayos nila sa kasalukuyan,sa dami ng taong gustong sumilip kay Segundina at Collegiala nagiba ang batalan.

    Mga ilang oras pa raw bago maayos sabi ng karpentiro.

    Pero sabi ni Ping nakikialam pa raw si Kris sa love life ni Noynoy.Kwarentay nuebe na siya at hindi daisy nwebe.Hehehe!

    Doc.Bobonyo
    ipinaayos ko na ang klinika mo doon sa bagong CD.
    $99 move-in especial ka na lang.

  14. iN 2007, Sen. Lacson was poised to run as Manila Mayor against Sen. Fred Lim then. But when Erap sided with Mayor Lim, he shifted to the Senate where winning was somehow assured given the trend that the voters were going for the opposition.

    I admired Lacson for all his anti-glorya posturing and should have continued doing such to the end. Medyo naiba na ata ang takbo ng hangin.

  15. Haaaay Mer nang buhay ko… Kumosta ka na baby, how is your date with your amigas? Ang daya-daya ninyo at nag-comedy bar pala kayo.
    Balita ko ay KKB (kanya-kanyang-bayad) daw kayo. Hehehe.

  16. Kuya Cocoy bakit maraming gustong manilip ba sa amin? Sige magpaparaya kami ni Mer…Hehehehe!

  17. Mang Joe ang hinala ni Ping naman sa pagdadawit sa kanya sa Dacer-Corbito double murder ay si Sen. Villar dahil gustong gumanti daw ito sa kanyang mga expose laban sa kanya. Question, may mapapala ba si Sen. Villar kapag ginawa niya iyan?

  18. Sorry Seg pang-teenager lang ang lakad namin. Ayaw namin ang may kasama kaming tita at tsaperon. Hahahahaha!

  19. Hoy biro lang baka magtampo ka na naman. Ang totoo ay biglaan lang iyon. Nagyaya kasi iyong bading na nurse na kakilala namin nag-yes naman kaagad ang mga kasama kung matatandang dalaga na kasing kapal na aspalto sa EDSA ang mga make-up. Baka makabingwit daw sila ng papa. Hehehe!
