On Philippine Cybercrime Act of 2012 (tags)
Technological developments, nay, social progress must lead to increased democratization and not to more curtailment of freedoms. The advent of the Internet and related technologies has opened a wide and free access to democratic space wherein ordinary citizens, including the oppressed workers and, in general, the laboring and propertyless masses, could participate in studying and gathering information and discussing social and political issues.

Pagsisiyasat sa automated elections, iginigiit (tags)
Napagalaman ng PESANTE BULETIN kahapon, Hunyo 21, 2010 na kahit pa igiit ng COMELEC nasaradong usapin na ang kredibilidad ng nagdaang eleksyon, hindi nito maitanggi ang kabi-kabilang mga katanungan at pagdududa sa isinagawa nitong kauna-unahang automated o de-kompyuter na bilangan ng mga boto noong Mayo 10. Ayon pa rin sa PESANTE dahil sa ang pagiging lehitimo ng mga resulta nito, naging tampok sa mga usapin ang panghihimasok ng US sa proseso. Iba't ibang mga organisasyon at institusyon ang humihinging ipagpatuloy ang mga pagsisiyasat sa itinakbo ng automated na eleksyon.
Filipinos: LEST WE FORGET! (tags)
We seem to have forgotten that once upon a time, not too long ago, there was this family, the Marcoses, comprised of Ferdinand (now deceased), Imelda (still gallivanting and traipsing the light fantastic in Manila and occasionally, kung maka lusot, overseas), and 3 children, including Ferdinand "Bongbong" Jr who's now running, under Presidential candidate Manny Villar, in the SAME Senatorial slate as political activists (??) Liza Maza and Satur Ocampo.
HINGGIL SA PAPASOK NA REHIMENG AQUINO (tags)
Nanalo si Noynoy Aquino dahil sa bago maghalalan siya ang pinili ng mga imperyalistang Amerikano at mga lokal na naghaharing uri ng malalaking komprador at asendero na maging bagong pangulo ng naghaharing sistema. Sa kabila ng pagkukunwaring umaasa siya sa piso-piso mula sa karaniwang mga tao, sa kanya idinagsa ng malalaking negosyanteng dayuhan at Pilipino ang kanilang suporta sa kampanya. Sa kalaunan ng kampanya, hinigitan ni Noynoy si Manny Villar sa paglikom at paggamit ng pera para sa iba't ibang tipo ng propaganda. Sinuportahan si Noynoy ng malaking mass media. Tuso sa propaganda ang mga alalay niya. Para mapagtakpan ang kasalatan niya sa track-record at kakayahan, pinatingkad ng kanyang media handlers ang palagay na siya ay malinis na tagapagmana ng tatay at nanay niya at ang pagbatikos sa korapsyon ng rehimeng Arroyo. Kaugnay nito, sa pariralang Villaroyo, tumalab ang hambalos ng kampong Noynoy na ahente ni Arroyo si Villar dahil hindi siya umaatake kay Arroyo. May mga palatandaan din na sa automated electoral system ng Smartmatic, na kontrolado ng US at mga ahente nila, may naganap na preprogramming para panaluhin sina Aquino at Binay. Halatang kinabigan ng napakalaking boto sina Manny Villar at Loren Legarda. Overkill at di kapanipaniwala ang biglang pagbagsak nila. May mga ulat na matataas na kinatawan ng CIA, pamilya ni Aquino at rehimeng Arroyo ang nagpasya sa pre-programming anim na linggo bago araw ng halalan. Ang pag-uusap nina Pinky Aquino-Abellada at Ginang Arroyo ang nagbigay daan sa ganitong areglo.
Leading the Philippine armed revolution astray (tags)
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP-Maoist) has spent a tremendous amount of manpower, financial and materials resources in the electoral campaign, in the process forging a tactical alliance with the landlord-bureaucrat capitalist Manuel Villar, the Nacionalista Party--and indirectly with the family of the late fascist puppet dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

Who owns Smartmatic-TIM? (tags)
With barely two weeks left before the May 10 elections, the question, “Who owns Smartmatic-TIM?” keeps popping up in a lot of people’s minds. Suddenly, the prospect of an “electronic Garci” cheating operation is creating apprehension that the country is on the brink of another people power or martial law… or, God forbid, civil war! A few days ago, I got a call from a fellow Filipino-American journalist who said that a powerful man has the “source code” of the Precinct Count Optical Scanner (PCOS) machines that will be used for the first time in May 10 elections. I followed the trail of the information and talked to a Filipino international lawyer who has done some research on the question of the “ownership” of Smartmatic-TIM. The following is his response:

CPP-NPA Permit to Campaign Fees: Fundraising or Opportunism? (tags)
The Philippine Left and the 2010 Elections The issue of the New Peoples Army collecting ‘permit to campaign fees’ (euphemistically named ‘revolutionary taxes’ by the Communist Party of the Philippines) from capitalist traditional politicians (trapo or rug) wanting to campaign in NPA strongholds has once again resurfaced in the lead-up to the May 2010 elections. The fees buy these trapo politicians a ‘permit to campaign’ in NPA areas. According to a February 5 Dateline news report, documents obtained from an NPA leader arrested in January this year, pegs the taxes from P30 million for a presidential candidate to P5000 for a candidate for local council. It’s a well-known ‘secret’ in the left that this practice of tax collection during elections is a lucrative source of fundraising for the CPP-NPA.
Worse than a crime – The electoral politics of the NDF and the CPP in the Philippines (tags)
The year 2010 has begun and we already know what’s going to be the most unlikely election coalition of the year. The legal National-Democratic (ND) movement of the Philippines, politically aligned with the underground Maoist Communist Party of the Philippines, has made an alliance with multimillionaire Manuel ‘Manny’ Bamba Villar Jr. and indirectly with Marcos’ admiring son, Ferdinand ’Bongbong’ Marcos jr.

Ayon sa mga pinakahuling balita, tabla ang labanang Villar-Aquino sa mga survey. Ayon naman sa isang political analyst sa internet na si Doy Cinco higit na mainit ito sa Metro Manila. Malamang na magiging battle ground ni Noynoy Aquino-Mar Roxas at Villar-Loren ang Kamaynilaan at kung sino ang lalamang, may malaking epekto sa pambansang resulta ng halalan sa kabuuan. “ Ayon kay Cinco, “ Sa kabuuang 50.0 milyong rehistradong botante sa bansa, may 15% nito o mahigit anim (6) na milyon ay matatagpuan sa Kalakhang Manila, Sa anim na milyon botante, kulang sa kalahati (2.8 milyon) ay matatagpuan sa Quezon City (1.2 milyon), Manila (1.0 milyon) at Caloocan (0.7 milyon). Ang Kalakhang Manila ay kinukunsidirang sentrong pampulitika, pang-ekonomya, panlipunan at pangkultura ng Pilipinas. Siya ang pinakamatao, pinaka-konsentrado at pinakamasikip na lugar sa buong bansa

KAMPANYA SA ELEKSYONG PRESIDENSYAL 2010 LALONG PANG UMIINIT (tags)
Lalo pang umiinit ang labanan sa pagkapangulo ng Pilpinas. Ito ay ayon sa mga mampulitikang observers ng PESANTE sa Maynila at sa Los Angeles. Nabigo ang grupong nais diumano i-“censure” o punahin si NP candidate Manny Villar sa senado na ipasa ang censure resolution nang hindi ito makakuha ng quorum sa nakaraang sesyon ng senado. Mukhang nagboykot ang minorya kaya walang quorum sa huling sesyon ng senado.

With barely two weeks to the official Philippine presidential campaign for May 2010 elections in mid-January 2010, the Filipino-American campaign intramurals heats up in the United States.

It was composed of former NAFFAA stalwarts Loida Nicolas Lewis of New York and the Macabenta-Rodis tandem in San Francisco. The US-based group promised to raised $ 2 million for the campaign kitty of two Philippine landlord-millionaires-Noynoy Aquino and Mar Roxas of the Araneta clan.

This came after critics began expressing opinions opposing the move of the two senatoriables which allegedly “overshadowed their moral ascendancy as real public servants.” Rep. Satur Ocampo and Rep. Liza Maza of the Makabayang Koalisyon ng Mamamayan (Makabayan) announced Dec. 14 their intent to join NP as guests, supporting Manny Villar and Loren Legarda as president and vice president, respectively.
Reform: The Making of a Philippine Presidential Campaign (tags)
There is real possibility for a significant leap in the reform process in the Philippines after the 2010 elections. If, as seems likely at this time, Noynoy Aquino wins the presidency, a number of converging developments could produce the conditions necessary for change. The first is Noynoy himself, who has successfully embodied the political legacy of his mother Cory, and his father Ninoy. This, in turn, has introduced a new dimension of enthusiastic voluntarism to the election campaign. Finally, the people running Noynoy’s campaign constitute the leading core of an enlarged reform constituency.

October 8th.. Pro-Japan collaborators also known as the modern MAKAPILIS, the sixteen senators led by JPEPA's sponsors Senators Miriam Santiago and Mar Roxas (whose grandfather was a Japanese and an American puppet) have compromised the country's national patrimony and sovereignty by approving a patently one-sided, anti-Filipino economic treaty.

The Filipino Community and all concerned Filipino Americans in the United States vehemently condemn the Senate's railroading of the ratification of the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) on Wednesday night. October 8th.. Pro-Japan collaborators also known as the modern MAKAPILIS, the sixteen senators led by JPEPA's sponsors Senators Miriam Santiago and Mar Roxas (whose grandfather was a Japanese and an American puppet) have compromised the country's national patrimony and sovereignty by approving a patently one-sided, anti-Filipino economic treaty. This is a reminiscence of how the Philippine Senate in 1972 passed the RP-Japan Treaty of Amity that opened the Philippines to the exploitation and oppression of the Japanese Imperialists.
