Speaking of Yasay and Gina Lopez’s REJECTION by the Commission of Appointments…
We don’t take it personally.
Mind you, Yasay was not even by bet at the first place. Imagine, living in the States on your whole entire life!? Ta’s hindi ka pa binigyan ng American citizenship?
That explains, Yasay is still a green card holder.
However, we’re fine with Mr. Yasay no longer being the official secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). He did a great job, though.
Speaking of Gina Lopez
Her rejection wasn’t dubious to us anymore. This is what Lapu-Lapu fanpage said:
There is actually a story behind the rejection of Gina Lopez. It’s all politics. Digong chose not to back up Lopez this time and let Sonny Dominguez do the rest.
Now I know, why Alan Peter Cayetano kept on asking Lopez on how the judgment was made among those mining companies who passed and failed in the audit. The thing is, Lopez retained the operation of the mining of the Gutierrez’s in Agusan in which we all know, one of the biggest campaign contributors of Mar Roxas. Well, they say that the Lopez’ and the Gutierrez’ are close. And Digong just learned about this, lately. So it was a unanimous decision to the allies of the President to vote NO, whom we expected to back up Lopez from the start. The like of Pimentel, Cayetano, Lacson and Zubiri and all of the 12 member Congressmen of the C.A, really think that the best option they had is to let Lopez go.
And why is it that all dilawan senators voted for Lopez? Because they can all benefit from her. Lol
-Arne G. Gogo.
This is why Dr. Antonio Contreras, a political scientist and a forester at the same time, despises Gina Lopez based on his principles.
I was wondering the same. Why did such stupid senators like Tito Sotto and Manny Pacquiao voted for her confirmation along with the Yellow hoarde?
AGG said it all.
This is what I said about Lapu-Lapu’s post.
One side of the story that people have to know. While some of you are excited to have Gina Lopez confirmed, we on the other hand, were ready to accept her rejection at all costs. It’s not about getting rid of her. President Duterte might have to look for someone who is as passionate as Gina Lopez, but has better methods that won’t hurt the mining industry.
Of course, we wholeheartedly accepted Gina Lopez. Maybe the post isn’t meant for her because one, she’s still part of the oligarch family—ABS-CBN. Remember, Channel 2 is a dubious company, and there’s no need to elaborate why. However, those factors did not hinder Gina Lopez to still make the most of her post as secretary of environment. It worked well.
Emil XS Cruz said:
And again, tungkol kay Ms Gina Lopez, for the NTH TIME, kinuha siya bilang Environment Secretary dahil isa siyang ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATE at hindi dahil sa isa siyang LOPEZ. Napaka close? I don’t think so. Kami nga sa DENR eh hindi sigurado kung mako-confirm pa siya.
And again hindi assurance yun na hindi nga kayo magsasara. Remember, CONGRESS pa rin ang magdedecide kung irerenew ang franchise niyo.
Duterte won’t renew the contract of ABS-CBN is because of their violations against certain policies. Tingnan niyo nga, binira ni Digong ng harap-harapan ang Dos, tsaka PDI? And the most disgusting about the Inquirer? It was once a Marcos crony.
IN SHORT, BALIMBING!
And speaking of Gina Lopez being a scion of oligarchs, well, that is no excuse. Analyze Emil’s statement once more, and you’ll get the main idea.
Lastly… according to the Mighty Warrior:
To anti-mining advocates in ABS-CBN… especially Ms. Gina Lopez. You know what you and your colleagues made me turned off. i feel disgusted after years of watching shows in your channel. Made me laugh and learn in many of your shows but the rumors of biased reporting were true (and i saw it with my two eyes.) and that made me sick. very sick! because i believe that what you are doing is what Marcos did to the media during his tyrannous reign. I talked to Joe de Castro of ABS-CBN Southern Tagalog while on a PAL plane bound for Manila and he said to me that what you did made commotions to the people in the station. You guys are using ABS-CBN as a tool for your close-minded group. “Lahat ng istasyon dapat hindi bias ang ni-rereport” ~ This is what Mr. de Castro told me. So Fuck you, Fuck Abner Mercado, Fuck ugly Beth Maclang, and Fuck no2mininginpalawan. Palawan is just an island like any island but with floras and faunas that can be found in Sabah, Malaysia and not in other parts of the Philippines. Ang kokorni nyo!
No wonder, Contreras is vindicated. Never forget the incident where Gina Lopez was agitated and bursted out to a reporter who did an ambush interview, “You’re just a f*cking employee!” But still, this is still not a factor for the Commission of Appointments to reject her.
Kahit papano, hindi naging balimbing si Gina Lopez. Ang totoong balimbing ay sina Sonny Dominguez, tsaka iyung mga iba pang mga oligarchs… bukod pa sa Inquirer.
And speaking of Yasay… he may have sucked in making his announcements, esp. on the West Philippine Sea, yet seriously, he has more qualifications than another balimbing senator Alan Peter Cayetano. Like, what does Balimbing Cayetano know ANYTHING about diplomacy!?
