After dropping his vice-presidential bid so as not to lock horns with daughter Inday Sara, P-Duterte filed his COC for senator. This is an obvious greedy gesture of holding a government position.

She may have hurt his feelings by not consulting him about her latest political move, but Palace said P-Duterte is not angry with her. Inday Sara still remains the apple of his father’s eye!

P-Duterte has nominated the chief city prosecutor of Manila, Rey Bulay as Comelec commissioner. This could be an obvious stab at the dream of a clean election in 2022. With Bulay at the helm of the Comelec, whatever Duterte wants, Duterte will get in probable bias election results.

Former PS- DBM head Christopher Lao remains in hiding from arrest order by Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Sargeant-At-Arms. He cannot be found by authorities in Luzon and Cebu. He can’t be found also in his Davao residence. He is probably now at P-Duterte’s lap!

Following his comments against the Chinese navy, Mayor Isko said he will never apologize to China for his statements against them. Maybe Mayor Isko is planning to ride also on a jet ski and plant the Philippine flag at the West Philippine Sea. He he he!

Secretary Silvestre Bello III requested Ping Lacson to give him the names of politicians who use TUPAD (Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantage/Displaced Workers) program by the government to lure the beneficiaries to join the caravan. The crooked congressmen take advantage of the beneficiaries even threaten them that those who will not join the group will not get their TUPAD cash. DOLE promised that if ever names were given they will be treated with extreme confidentiality as it investigates the perpetrator-politician! Why not investigate the 3rd District of Batangas? Almost thousands of beneficiaries in the district have been receiving TUPAD and even withdrawn at Palawan Express and GCash!

Due to continuous prodding from various mayors and councilors and urgings from many barangay captains of different towns in the 3rd District of Batangas, Tanauan City Mayor Sweet Halili bowed down to their requests by filing her COC as a candidate for congresswoman. Despite pleas from thousand of supporters last year and early this year, she turned them down saying she has great respect for incumbent Congresswoman Matet Collantes being a close family friend.
After contemplating seriously these past weeks and because of the bad comments she and her brother mayoral candidate Mark Anthony Halili were receiving from the Collanteses in their campaign sorties and the advice from some of her leaders, she decided to contest the congressional seat of the 3rd District of Batangas against Matet Collantes, the wife of ex-Congressman Sonny Collantes who is now vying for the Tanauan City mayoralty post. In her message to the media, she bared her various programs for the district especially for the poor Batanguenos which she believes left uncared for by the Collantes clan. According to Mayor Angeline “Sweet” Halili (MASH), this is the right time for a true Congressman/Representative to do the right thing under the district area of jurisdiction. This is the time for cities and towns in the district to really feel the pouring of infrastructure projects and other programs that will again revive the economy and uplift the quality of life of the citizens, especially the poor sector of the community. The heat is now on the battle between Halili versus Collantes. Brother and sister against husband and wife.

Because of the very early campaign sorties by mayoral aspirant Sonny Collantes and incumbent Congresswoman Matet Collantes, a source said that the Collantes couple has run out of campaign funds. They are now planning to withdraw. They will withdraw, not their candidacy, but withdraw from the bank. Hik hik hik!
***
P-Duterte said he cannot support the candidacy of Yorme, BBM, and Leni, because they are pro-communist. It can be remembered that during the Marcos regime the country had nearly zero communists as the government then focused actions against NPA and not on purchasing medical paraphernalia! How is that?

The Commission on Higher Education(CHED) has announced that post-graduates, undergraduates, interns clinical clerks, and fourth-year medicine and nursing students can now become vaccinators and participate in the National COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment and Vaccination Program. Even it’s becoming late already as viewed by citizens, the government is fast-tracking vaccination rollout as more vaccines arrive in the country. There should really be a rush in inoculation to prevent the expiration of the vaccines.

Boxer Reymart Gaballo is out to make most of his chances when he takes on WBC bantamweight champion and compatriot Nonito Donaire on December 11 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Gaballo said Donaire is his idol but was mandated to fight him in a world title fight. What every Pinoy is happy about is that whoever wins the bout still a Filipino will emerge as the champion.

P-Duterte has denied allegations by retired Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade, that he is being controlled by his longtime aide Senator Bong Go who is seeking the presidency in May 2022 elections. P-Duterte said he makes his own decision and consults Bong Go for advice. Naturally, an adviser usually has been making decisions. Got it!?
