EXCLUSIVE: VITALIANO AGUIRRE’S RESIGNATION LETTER




April 5, 2018

HIS EXCELLENCY RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE
President, Republic of the Philippines
Malacañan Palace, Manila

Dear Mr. President,

Una kong narinig noong Linggo ng Pagkabuhay ang balitang balak mo akong sibakin sa puwesto. Aaminin ko, ikinagulat ko ito. Kaagad kong tinanong si Bong Go kung totoo ang balita ngunit sinabi naman niyang walang siyang alam tungkol dito. Umasa akong ito ay tsismis lamang. Sa katunayan, nag-participate pa ako sa Easter Egg Hunt kasama ang aking mga apo. Wala akong nakitang Easter egg. Kinabahan ako. Masamang pangitain yata ito. Nanatiling positibo ang aking pananaw.

Ngunit noong Miyerkules, ibinalita ng Philippine Star ang diumano’y nakaambang pagsipa mo sa akin bilang kalihim ng Department of Justice. Sa loob-loob ko, baka nga totoo. Para akong pinagsakluban ng langit at lupa. Tumayo lahat ng buhok sa aking katawan. (Hindi pala lahat.)

Kinagabihan, nagsimba ako at pormal na humingi ng sign kay Lord.

“Panginoon, dapat ko bang unahan ang pagpapatalsik sa akin? Give me a sign, Lord.”

Pagkasabi ko nito, biglang tumunog ang cellphone ng aking katabi. Ang ring tone: ‘Hayaan Mo Sila’ ng Ex Battalion. Napaindak ako Mr. President. Hindi mo naitatanong, ito ang lagi kong pinakikinggan sa Spotify. Ito na nga siguro ang sign na hinihintay ko.

Labag man sa aking kalooban, nagpasya akong sulatin ang resignation letter na ito. Mas masakit kasi kung mababasa ko pa sa Inquirer at Rappler ang headline na, “Duterte sacks Aguirre.” Ayaw ko silang bigyan ng dahilan upang magsaya.

With this letter, I hereby respectfully tender my resignation, Mr. President. Ngunit bago ko tuluyang iwan ang tanggapang aking pinaglingkuran, nais kong isa-isahin ang aking mga nagawa sa nakalipas na isang taon at walong buwan:

Naipakulong ko si Sen. Leila De Lima kahit walang ebidensya. Ako lang ang makakagawa nito.

Ibinasura ko ang kaso laban kina Peter Lim, Peter Co, Kerwin Espinosa (na umaming drug lord pero feeling ko nagbibiro lang talaga), at iba pang high-profile drug personalities. Bakit ba? Ipinapatupad ko lang ang batas. ‘Pag walang ebidensya, ibasura! (Siyempre, exception to the rule ‘yong kay De Lima. Tama ba ako, Mr. President?)

Ang utak sa pork barrel scam na si Janet Lim Napoles, tinanggap natin sa Witness Protection Program ng pamahalaan. Ganyan kabait ang ating gobyerno. Hindi lang biktima at saksi ang tinutulungan kundi pati mga kawatan!

Dalawang tauhan ko sa Bureau of Immigration ang kinasuhan ng plunder dahil sa pang-e-extort sa negosyanteng si Jack Lam. Muntik na akong madawit dito pero nalusutan ko ang isyu. Hindi ba achievement ito?

Ang kasong murder laban kay Supt. Marvin Marcos na inakusang pumaslang kay Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa at sa mga tauhan nito, naibaba natin sa homicide. Wala akong pakialam sa findings ng NBI na rubout ang nangyari. Pulis o drug suspects: kanino ba talaga kayo kampi?

Sa kaso ng 6.4 billion-peso shabu shipment na nasabat ng mga awtoridad, isa lang ang nakasuhan: si Mark Taguba. Sa aking mga kritiko, ‘wag na kayong makuda. Ano bang gusto n’yo: may nakasuhan o wala?

Mr. President, bawat isa sa mga nagawa kong ito ay inayunan mo.

Bawat isa sa mga ito ay wala kang naging reklamo — kaya’t labis ang pagtataka ko kung bakit gusto mo pa akong sibakin sa puwesto.

Kulang pa ba? Nasaan ang hustisya?

Nagtatanong lang. ‘Wag ka sanang magagalit.

Sakali mang tanggapin mo ang pagbibitiw kong ito, nais kong ipaalam sa ‘yo na handa pa rin akong maglingkod sa gobyerno. Paalala lang po, malapit nang magretiro si Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales. Alam po n’yo ang number ko. Bahala na kayo. [Pwede nga rin pala ako sa Senado. Kumpleto na ba ang slate n’yo?]

Good luck mahal na Pangulo! Thank you very much.

I remain,

Your fraternity brother,

VITALIANO N. AGUIRRE II

The government does not have a master plan for the Boracay island aside from allocating P2 billion in calamity funds for locals of the area, President Rodrigo Duterte said Monday.

From my former associate way back home


"I’m seriously making this an interview question.

My company is launching a job fair soon. I have been asked to participate as an interviewer. I am also in the lookout for senior managers, team leaders, project managers, business analysts.

And in these interviews I will ask “Did you vote for Duterte?”

Or alternatively, “Do you support Duterte?”

I know I can be chastised by my management for asking political questions. And you will probably wonder what does politics have to do with a candidate’s skills, capabilities, and job performance. But I have my reasons.

Assuming you answer “Yes,” I will then ask “Why?” with a number of follow up questions.

A few examples . . .

Do you think that Duterte would have made a good leader? If so, what leadership skills did he demonstrate?

Did you research about Duterte before voting? If so, what were the factors that convinced you to vote for or support him?

What was your reaction when he said he wanted to be first in line to have sex with that Australian missionary? How do you feel when he says that he will shoot female soldiers in their vaginas?

How do you feel when he curses in his public speeches?

Did you vote for him because you wanted change? If so, what was wrong with our country that necessitated change?

Do you believe that Leila de Lima is innocent or guilty? Why?

Knowing what you know now, do you regret voting or supporting Duterte? Why?

Then I’ll ask the candidate about his leadership style. I will need to know how he values camaraderies and how he handles adversities and conflicting opinions.

Will you be angry and defensive if people criticize you?

Will you manage in an authoritarian fashion? Will you dictate, ask for counsel, or seek consensus?

How will you make commitments? Will you establish goals and directions based on data and not just some wild-ass guess? How will you make schedules and promise deadlines? And if you don’t meet goals, how will you react? Will you own up to it or give excuses or maybe even say you are joking?

How will you choose your team mates and subordinates? What will be your basis?

How will you discipline subordinates who make mistakes? How much leeway will you allow?

How do you feel about check-and-balance mechanisms like independent audits, quality assurance, disciplinary hearings? If a person commits an infraction, should we terminate him right away even without due process?

Do you think that the end justifies the means? In other words, to achieve an objective, are you going to circumvent company policies and the code of conduct?

There is actually no right or wrong answer. But I ask this because I have to judge your character. And I will assess your character based on how well you make your decisions. For example, if you believed that Duterte was a good leader based on his bluster and rhetorics with no research, then that tells me you can be easily swayed by opinions and anecdotal evidence.

I will also need to assess if you are bullshitting me. For example, if you support Duterte’s authoritarian and dictatorial style but tell me that you will seek consensus among your peers and subordinates, then you are bullshitting me.

Don’t get me wrong. I won’t reject you simply because you voted for Duterte. I just need to know why. To move up in the corporate world, you will need to defend your decisions. You will need to demonstrate a clear, rational thought process. You will need to understand risk-reward ratios. And I will need to understand how you take risks, where you gamble, what you put at stake.

Do you have suggestions on questions to ask?"


Any thoughts on this, mga ka-dds?

The PCOO, which has a P1.38-billion budget for 2018, has been widely criticized for committing a series of booboos.

Fake news propagation is truly unprecedented under the death squad Mayor's leadership.

Dagdag ko lang from the article...

The Philippines and China also signed an exchange of letters providing for broadcasting equipment for Malacañang’s communications office, worth 17 million yuan (about P140.8 million), during President Duterte’s visit on Tuesday, where he met with Xi on the sidelines of the Boao Forum for Asia.

Boy that's part of the China-The death squad Mayor's deal. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chinese casino operators and drug lords sends him monthly subscription boxes of Fentanyl for free.

Duterte supporters plan to deactivate FB accounts, transfer to Russian social media VKontakte

Prominent supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte have threatened to leave social networking site Facebook after discovering that it would be partnering with VERA Files, a non-stock nonprofit independent media organization, and Rappler, for its third-party fact-checking program in the Philippines.

Last April 13, VERA Files announced its partnership with Facebook and Rappler. “The program aims to help combat false news from spreading on Facebook. Third-party fact checkers like VERA Files will review news stories on Facebook, check their facts and rate their accuracy,” VERA Files wrote.

VERA Files is the “first Philippine fact-checking organization certified through the nonpartisan International Fact-Checking Network at Poynter.”

Apart from having the ability to flag potential false news stories, VERA Files wrote that people will be informed if a story they shared on Facebook is rated as false through the third-party fact-checking program. This is in line with Facebook’s “three-part framework to improve the quality and authenticity of stories in the News Feed.”

It seems, however, that this latest partnership did not sit well with some leading Diehard Duterte Supporters, one of which is Filipino singer Jimmy Bondoc.

Bondoc took to his Facebook last week to his grievances over the social networking giant’s latest move, saying, “I guarantee you, if this happens, I will personally commence a nationwide petition to delete Facebook. I also assure you that I will be supported strongly. I also ask commenters to kindly suggest ASAP a new socmed platform that we can migrate to.”

His post has since been deleted, but blogger Tonyo Cruz shared on his Twitter page last April 12 a screenshot of Bondoc’s post. “Let’s all support Jimmy Bondoc please,” wrote Cruz.

Philippine inflation rate hits 3-year high

Image

The country's year-on-year headline inflation rate hit a three-year high this February 2018, a report from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) revealed Tuesday.

Inflation picked up by 3.9 percent in February-- higher than the 3.4 percent growth in January and the 3.1 percent recorded in the same period in 2016. The last period the country's inflation rate rose this high was in September 2014.

The growth comes as the food and nonalcoholic beverages index reached 4.8 percent, and alcohol and tobacco, 16.9 percent, PSA said.

Other commodity groups that had higher annual increases include clothing and footwear at 2 percent, furnishing, household equipment, and routine maintenance of the house at 2.5 percent, transport at 5.8 percent, and restaurant and miscellaneous goods and services at 2.5 percent.

Food alone had an annual mark-up of 4.8 percent compared to the 4.6 percent in January and 3.2 percent in February 2017.

PSA, however, noted housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels had lower annual hikes at 2.6 percent.

Communication and recreation and culture also had lower inflation rates, at 0.2 and 1.4 percent respectively, while, other commodity groups retained their previous rate.

Consumer prices, however, moved at a rate of 0.8 from last month-- slower than the 0.9 percent rated posted in January.

The National Capital Region (NCR), meanwhile, retained an annual inflation rate of 4.7 percent also recorded in January 18.

The food and non-alcoholic beverages index in NCR saw a higher annual increase at 6.6 percent, while alcoholic beverages and tobacco had a double-digit annual mark-up at 21.2 percent, PSA said.

The trend continued for regions outside NCR, where inflation grew at 3.7 percent in February 2018 compared to 3.1 percent in January and 3 percent in February 2017.

All regions except Region IV-B (MIMAROPA) and Region XI (Davao Region) had higher inflation this February. The Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) had the highest annual rate at 6.0 percent.

The indices of food and non-alcoholic beverages outside of NCR rose to 4.5 percent while alcoholic beverages and tobacco reached 16.0 percent.

Clothing and footwear, household equipment and maintenance, health, transport, education, and restaurant and miscellaneous goods also had faster annual gains.

NEDA calls for measure to curb inflation
Following the spike in prices, the country's economic development authority has called for increased measures to curb inflation, and cushion its impact on the poor.

In a press release Tuesday, National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said such efforts are "urgently needed" as the February 2018 index hit the "upper band" of the government's 2.0 to 4.0 target.

"The transitory impact of the TRAIN Law (Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Law) and the continued depreciation of the Philippine peso will mainly influence price movements in the coming months, and we must ensure that mitigating measures should be in place," NEDA Secretary Ernesto Pernia said.

Pernia had earlier said around 0.7 percent at most of inflation in 2018 will likely be due to TRAIN.

He said given the inflation rates, the government must pay "closer attention" to the poor, citing the need to expand the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) providing conditional cash grants to the poorest of the poor, and to speed up the distribution of unconditional cash transfers from the country's tax reform law.

Pernia also called for the replacement of quantitative restrictions on rice with tariffs-- a move he said would lower the price of raise and increase revenue from agricultural programs.

He added, the government through the Department of Trade and Industry, should further monitor businesses to prevent "profiteering" and ensure they comply with local regulations on pricing.

"We must enforce fair consumer pricing among businesses: In January, there were anecdotal reports that some of them are taking advantage of the TRAIN Law by prematurely increasing their selling prices despite no additional input costs to their production and services brought about by the law," Pernia said.

The TRAIN law, signed by President Rodrigo Duterte in December, is just one of the five tax packages under the administration's comprehensive tax reform plan. The bill exempts those earning ₱250,000 or less a year from income tax, but also hikes tax on products including sweetened beverages and petroleum products.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), meanwhile, said there is no cause for alarm. It said the rise in consumer prices is temporary as the effects of tax reform kick in, and prices should go back to normal by 2019.

BSP Governor Nestor Espenilla also hinted it's unlikely inflation will trigger an increase in interest rates for now.

CNN Philippines' Claire Jiao and Amanda Lingao contributed to this story.
