Numerous BOGUS PARTY LIST in '07 Election- 1

There are now numerous list of BOGUS PARTY LIST coming from different organizations a good sign that people are actively exposing questionable party list. We have Akbayan coming out with the first 11 party lists which they say are fronts for the Lady cheating errr seating by the murky Pasig river, 41 from Urban Poor for Legal Reforms (UP-LR) and Bantay R.A. 7941 and now we have B&W MOVEMENT and Kontra Daya with their own black list of 12 & 22.

I am not complaining here I believe this is a good sign that vigilance is slowly creeping into the consciousness of our people and not only mouthing it but actually taking action in exposing these unscrupulous characters who shamelessly and desperately sneaking like dirty rats scumbag to forage the wealth of the people they call PORK BARREL.

The bastardization of the party list system should not be taken lightly and we have one of the most respected former Senate President Jovito Salonga clamoring for the release of the names of nominees for party list. We also have other politicians joining in but sadly their motivations for doing so are questionable at best because of election season's empty hollow posturing.

Thanks to Schumey and Yuko Takei who called my attention on the Parents Enabling Parents (PEP) that was included in the combined list of UP-LR and Bantay R.A. 7941 as reported by newspapers, victims of educational plan company knuckleheads maybe victimized again by this bastardization of the party list system through the incompetence of Comelec and those fixers as reported in the you tube video Party List for Sale.

The problem here is we have various organizations with their own priorities and advocacy while they see the same problem are coming out with different lists from 11 to 41 is just not going to cut it. It makes me wonder if their advocacy was for their personal agenda of satisfying their huge ego or one track minded advocacy seeing only a limited picture based on their advocacy when the issue is larger that their agenda, personal or otherwise.

Have we not heard of working together, sharing of information, cooperation and solidarity? Or is it just how we are, narrow minded the world revolves around me and nothing else matters but my own and others are irrelevant? Let’s face it the trapos and their minions are formidable giants that owns the electoral system and for small organizations while I don’t question the validity of their various advocacies should seriously consider cooperating with one another in this issue for the sake of the common good of our people. What’s wrong with sharing information since you share it to the public anyways? Can we not explore the possibility of sharing information, comparing notes and verifying the accuracy that once it goes out to the public it creates more impact?

BABAE Ka is shamelessly muscling posters at Bare the List site threatening people with Libel Suit ala Mike “Mr. Libel” Arroyo, how about we band together and sue the Comelec, the Bogus Party List, and the fixers for illegal possession of ugly faces errrr fraudulent filing of party certificates and fraudulent approval by the konsumisyoners errr commissioners. Let’s see if any of our Fooliticians are really serious in their pronouncement in joining this issue, how about them filing criminal cases against these frauds so that anyone who thinks they can get a free backdoor pass to pork barrel will think twice (that is if they are capable of thinking) before they blatantly abuse and disenfranchise the marginalized sectors of proper representation. Here is Binabae errrr Babae daw sila posted at Bare the List comment section:

Babae Ka Says:

April 18th, 2007 at 3:28 am

Oh by the way, Babae Ka will file libel cases against those involved in maligning the name of this organization. Wait for it.

Hah! Who do they think they are? Mike Arroyo? Hmmmmmmnnnn, sounds like some rant of deluded drunken stupor basking in power than a marginalized group to me. Here is a portion of the you tube video regarding the fixers where Babae was mentioned which I transcribed:

Ces: Hinimok ang mga NGO na magparehistro daw bilang Party list nuong Oktubre kabilang dito ang ofw International na ngayon ay Akbay Pinoy na, Babae ka at lypad na ngayon ay Lipad na. Pinangakuan daw sila ng pondo pero ng hindi ito naibigay sinabihan ang mga party list na ibenta na lang ang nominees.

Bert: Sabi po nila wala na nga po. Sold na daw Lahat

Ces: Sino ang kausap mo na nagsabing sold, sino 'yun?

Bert: Ang kausap ko 'yun pong isa member ng Babae ka.

What’s up with that and here is Borra threatening people with prosecution just by divulging the names of the nominees. I wonder why this Borra is saying that, is it for people to lay off the issue so the fixing and side business “behind their backs” can do their business unhampered? Tell you what Borra, instead of threatening the people with prosecution why not prosecute or at least investigate the three people mentioned in the you tube as the brokers for party list nominees? While you’re at it arrest Abalos too, not only for mentioning his big brother as a nominee but for blatantly and shamelessly campaigning for his brother when he rationalized his brother’s accomplishment in the newspapers.

Meanwhile Akbayan’s original list of 11 has now grown to 15 questionable groups in the party-list race and more detailed compared to the rest:

Are there groups in the party-list race fronting for the GMA administration? Here’s a list of groups that are reportedly connected to Malacanang and to certain government officials and agencies. AKBAYAN has called for an investigation of these groups, but the COMELEC rejected the idea:

BABAE KA
Originally the Kababaihan para sa Inang Bayan (KABABAYAN), its first nominee, Sally Dagami was reportedly a former Kaibigan ni Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (KGMA) coordinator.

Babae Ka! was one of the many organizations mentioned by an ABS CBN Correspondence report that were encouraged and helped by the Office of External Affairs (OEA) to participate in the party-list elections.

Babae ka! was also a member of the Malayang Babae para sa Cha Cha at Reporma (MELCHORA) which is affiliated with the Sigaw ng Bayan group, a Pro Charter Change and Pro-Peoples Initiative group headed by Raul Lambino jr. which is reportedly organized by the OEA and DILG.

In a recent TV interview, the spokesperson of Babae Ka! admitted that they have members working at the OEA. In fact, a certain Nerissa Garcia, Executive Director of OEA, is a standing member of the said group.

Nominees:

Sally Dagami- reportedly has close links with the Office of External Affairs, also a reported former KGMA Coordinator

According to a January 27, 2007 news report by Malaya newspaper, COMELEC insiders reportedly said that Biyaheng Pinoy has earned a moniker inside the poll agency as “Asosasyon ng mga Kamag-anak at Kapitbahay ni Abalos or AKKA.”

The same report said Biyaheng Pinoy’s application has been kept secret. Its name was omitted in the roster of party-list petitioners.

Arsenio is said to be planning again to run for mayor but was prevailed upon to run under Biyaheng Pinoy as one of its nominees.

The young Abalos is set to return as mayor while Gonzales will stage a comeback in Congress.
