Statistical Overstretch And Albano’s Twisted Imagination

The TU cheating machinery has bogged down. During the campaign, Tonypet Alabano of TU said that political machinery will give the TUTA a 12-0 sweep of the senatorial elections. He was trying to condition the minds of the people when their cheating operations kick in. What actually happened is the complete opposite of whatever mind-conditioning the administration tried to stick in our undiluted minds.

Now Tonypet is raising a howl and crying that they have been cheated. Cheated he says? Cheated my ass! Only the incumbent has the monopoly to cheat. With their guns, goons and gold and they still claim they were cheated. The COMELEC too is by your side so how can the TU lose? We are not stupid Tonypet. It was the people’s will to kick TU’s asses to kingdom come.

Now Tonypet comes up with a term only he understands. Its called STATISTICAL OVERSTRETCH. He claims its the GO’s brand of mind-conditioning wherein the opposition would claim imaginary cases of cheating to undermine the TU’s standing in the canvassing. This guy sure has his brain stuck somewhere else.

Wasn’t Escudero, Cayetano and Pimentel nearly robbed of votes in the hundreds of thousands? And these where uncovered during the national canvass. Of course Abalos was quick to declare it as clerical errors. Lintang Bedol, one of Garci’s lieutenants, justified the voting of minors. I wonder how many minors voted for TU in Mindanao and ARMM? People in Maguindanao profess that there were no elections held there despite CoCs and SoVs which show a very high turnout of voters. Maybe Tonypet should ask Gov. Ampatuan why teachers under armed guards were videotaped in a gymnasium filling out ballots even before elections began. He should also ask Amb. Tita De Villa of what she witnessed during the Lanao speacial elections. Even foreign observers witnessed how the a mockery of the electoral process was done.

I suppose Tonypet is trapped in the nightmare they themselves created. He claims that TU was cheated in opposition bailiwicks. This claim however runs contrary to NAMFREL’s study that the opposition actually has thousands of voters disenfranchised in opposition turfs while administration bailiwicks had astronomical increases in their voters registration.

The vigilance of the people and the genuine call for electoral reform is what caught the administration off guard. They thought that they can still cheat and get away with it. (my hunch is that Gloria really wanted to be out of the country when the reports of TU’s cheating are exposed) Now Tonypet has to conjure up some insane, highly improbable scenario to deflect the heat from their massive, brazen acts of defrauding the electorate.

Now Mr. Albano, who do you think will believe your assertions? You may fool people sometime but not all the time. The people are not as stupid as you may think. We are well informed now more than ever. Its you who is actually overstretching, overstretching your blurred and twisted imagination that the people love TUTA and GMA so much, and that we owe our continuing existence to them.

It could may have been TU’s cheating operators who did some hokus-pokus to make it appear that the GO cheated. The GO does not need to cheat in their bailiwicks as voters there cannot simply be bought. Unlike in the administration’s turfs(?), teachers and election officials are forced to cheat under the barrel of the gun of warlords bought with the people’s money.

My humble advice is for Tonypet to see a shrink to interpret his “dreams”. Sometimes, lies become truths when one believes them to be reality.

“You may want to read what UNIFFORS (GO bites TUTA) had to say about Tonypet Alabano. Arbet of AWB Holdings (Making a donkey out of oneself) adds his masterstroke on Albano as well”

Making The Grade

When it rains, it pours. This is what’s happening now as the race for the Magic 12 is heating up. The blatant display of how cheating can land you in the top 12 is now pouring in. Despite the presence of election watchdogs, the cheating operators were not deterred from conducting their fraudulent business. Military presence did not prevent hostilities from breaking out. And intimidations were even more pronounced.

Cheating is more rampant now as the final stretch to proclaiming the Magic 12 is at hand. Quantity and not quality is the name of the game as the COMELEC sacrifices scrutiny with speed. Despite questionable CoCs, the COMELEC would rather finish the count and proclaim the winners and worry about protests later.

Now the dagdag-bawas is more evident. The COMELEC just makes everything slide than charge the perpetrators. In many cases, they justify or even cover-up those who obviously are guilty of fraud. Even candidates who benefited through cheating were never questioned. This cases were simply noted and would sure fade into oblivion.

COMELEC officials whose watch were tainted with documented reports of alleged cheating were quickly absolved of any wrongdoing. Even when violations are done under their very noses (I’m quite sure, even with their blessings), these COMELEC officials were retained and even praised. Abalos, despite tons of evidences even has the gall to berate the media for airing footages of cheating. (eat my shorts Mr. Abalos)

Migz Zubiri and Ralph Recto simply kept quiet despite being obvious beneficiaries of dagdag-bawas. It only shows what kind of men they really are. Nothing is more important to these two than just making the grade, regardless of how they get there. Mga walang delicadeza. A true gentleman would never allow himself to win through cheating.

With the huge campaign expense of these two, they will do anything and use any means to get into the Magic 12, even at the expense of decency and principle. If principles can be bent, what can these two offer the senate much more the people? I’m sure they know where they stand in the eyes of the people. No amount of endorsement will put them into office. Is this how low our senator-wanna-bes will stoop just to make the cut? Of course, what can we expect from “puppies” of a cheating president.

If I were in their shoes, I would be the first one to ask for an investigation to make sure that the will of the people be heard. But then again, I’m not a greedy, power hungry, unprincipled trapo like them. This is where we make the distinction between public servants and self-servants. By hook, or by crook….winning is the only thing to them.

As the last Cocs reach Manila, expect more shenanigans to be exposed. The heat has taken its toll on Rene Sarmiento, head of Task Force Maguindanao. The special elections there was marred with recorded violations and intimidations. Now the stakes have gone higher as the last position is up for grabs. I wonder what the TU will come up with this time. I hope its not another “kuwentong barbero” where shaving is a way of life.

Its Payback Time

The cannibalism of Lakas by Kampi just before the elections has left a scar in their coalition. Local candidates of the two were pitted against each other and some Lakas members had no savory words for their supposed to be allies. The rift between the two had left a deep wound that cannot easily be healed.

Although the administration may have won the majority in the lower house, GMA cannot be complacent as their coalition is on the rocks. Now that the focus of the people is on the senatorial canvass, her political advisers will have to repair whatever damage had been left by the rift.

The answer is the renewal of their push for charter change. GMA was able to get the attention of her cohorts in the lower house when she dangled the cha-cha carrot. With JdV getting a fresh mandate, a new battle is emerging between Lakas and Kampi. The fight for the house leadership will be a hotly contested one.

Should JdV lose the lower house to Villafuerte, it could widen the rift between Lakas and Kampi. GMA will be left standing on very shaky ground. JdV can easily turn his back on her and her impeachment can very well push through this year. Will she gamble and see what happens next? Knowing how wily she is, for sure she would not blindly step into the unknown.

Will a renewed push for cha-cha do the job? Would the Lakas be stupid enough to believe her again? GMA showed Lakas what she is capable of and Lakas should now consider its options. But JdV is also politically savvy and could may very well corner GMA. Its going to be a battle of concessions. Should GMA go too far, Lakas may just go with the opposition and hang her out to dry.

The untenable position Gloria is in could spell her downfall. This will bring us back to the Cha-cha. Now more than ever, with a seemingly hostile senate, Gloria will have to rein in the Lakas in the lower house to save her skin. She will be hard-pressed to push for Cha-cha. This is the only thing that could hold their shaky coalition together.

After the smoke of the recent elections clears but with no time to spare, the administration will have to muster the numbers and press for the shift to a parliamentary system. Gloria will have to pay through her teeth as the rift will surely hit her hard.

The next few weeks will be crucial for JdV and GMA. Niceties will not work this time and the day of reckoning is upon them. Will they square off? Who between the two political abominations will survive? I’d love to see Kampi and Lakas go at each other’s neck. They brought it upon themselves and the stronger predator will reap the rewards of its labor.

Its payback time for Gloria. How she will pay for her party’s cannibalism of Lakas will be something to look forward to.

Phrase Of The Day: CLERICAL ERROR

It seems that more and more discrepancies in the canvass entries are being uncovered. The election watchdogs are indeed doing their job well. The latest of these discrepancies were traced to Ralph Recto who was given an additional 100,000 votes.

Last week, the same “CLERICAL ERRORS” were discovered. Chiz Escudero and Alan Cayetano were almost robbed of 100,000 votes each. Fatigue maybe taking its toll on our hard-pressed canvassers. It could also may have been pressures from some quarters.

But the COMELEC, when its hands are caught in the cookie jar, has one explanation and an alarming one at that: CLERICAL ERROR. With the canvassing at a snail’s pace once again, I wonder how many times this phrase will come out of the COMELEC’s mouth.

Our vigilance is paying off. The cheats are losing their battle. Whatever the outcome is, I will accept it as long as it is proven to be the true mandate of the people. No, I’m not waving the white flag nor am I willing to accept Gloria’s claim that she has the confidence of the people. I am very sure that there are those who did not vote or were never allowed to vote. Then there are those who voted who were not supposed to. But all these will have to be in another post.

The voters’ list despite being purged was full of errors. I suppose the COMELEC’s answer to those disenfranchised will be, yes you guessed it, CLERICAL ERROR. Now the “I AM SORRY” speech by Gloria is passe and Garci has done his job, CLERICAL ERROR RULES! And pixies are everywhere. Lets be more vigilant, people!

An Invitation To Show Your Concern

We have seen how “AN HONEST MISTAKE” nearly cost Chiz Escudero and Alan Cayetano a hundred thousand votes each. Reports of cheating and failed polls have been coming in from different sources. Even the NAMFREL Quick-count system was almost hacked which caused the delay in their counting.

Obviously, someone is trying to steal the elections again. But this time, the vigilance of the people maybe paying off. Volunteer watchdogs have been very busy unmasking the different forms of cheating being employed by operators of unscrupulous politicians.

I received this text from a good friend yesterday.

A well-planned systematic and shameless PLUNDER OF OUR VOTES is unfolding before our eyes!! Please join the CONCERNED CITIZENS at a PEOPLE’S PROCLAMATION and PROTEST rally on Wednesday, May 23, at the PICC where the COMELEC canvass is being held. Assembly is at the Starcity at 3pm. Please wear black.

Bring your friends and associates. Let’s not allow this SHAMELESS administration to murder our democracy again and again. Mabuhay ang dakilang Pilipino!!!”

I hope you will all help protect our democracy.
