100 MILLION FILIPINOS, BE MORE VIGILANT this time around !!! The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. SONNY BELMONTE, is once again on his war path that will lead us to another PORK BARREL, under a different designation or name worst than the most notorious PDAF. Belmonte is likewise toying at the idea of a possible creation of a PUBLIC ACCOUNTS & AUDIT COMMITTEE that will SCRUTINIZE other agencies, including the JUDICIARY. He is not satisfied with his CONGRESSIONALpower of the purse, meaning, the passage of the GENERAL APPROPRIATION ACT, or national budget.
He wants Congress, under his awkward or weird leadership, to supervise all branches of government to assert its SUPREMACY, thereby rendering the PRINCIPLE of SEPARATION of POWERS of the three main branches of our Philippine government enshrined under our FUNDAMENTAL LAW put to NAUGHT.
Furthermore, he obviously is trying to USURP the functions of the Office of the Commission on Audit by unnecessarily duplicating them, reducing the latter's role into a mere idle ceremony or purely academic. This Speaker has already displayed his extreme thirst for power by TOTALLY IGNORING both decisions of the Commission on Elections and the Supreme Court involving the issues surrounding the protracted congressional disputes in my beloved PROVINCE of MARINDUQUE, by arguing illogically that election protests involving congressional candidates are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the HOUSE ELECTORAL TRIBUNAL.
He blindly and dishonestly closed his eyes to the TRUTHS that the only main issue in the instant case is the QUALIFICATION of the subject candidate who is an AMERICAN CITIZEN, her status as such automatically disqualified her to even run for a public office in the Philippines, pursuant to our ELECTION LAWS. This Speaker is the topnotch LAWMAKER, turned LAWBREAKER, who has BROKEN a WORLD RECORD in the FIELD of LEGISLATION, and must be inserted in RIPLEY'S file. (Atty. Ralph "bunyag" Bunag, for the truths, justice & good governance strictly in accordance with our well-framed Philippine Constitution)
