Gloriagate Scandal

I just noticed that the controversy on the supposedly wiretapped conversations between President Arroyo and Comelec Commissioner Garcillano is now called Gloriagate scandal. I have yet to find out who coined the term; most probably those from the pro-Erap media.

Even Michelle Malkin used the term in her blog. (Malkin is a conservative columnist who declared she was “deeply, mortifyingly ashamed of her parent’s native land” when our government pulled out its troops in Iraq to save Angelo de la Cruz).

A new site that hosts zipped audio file of the wiretapped conversation is also called Gloriagate.

Meanwhille, a TV report showed that netizens aren’t afraid to download and distribute the audio files on the Internet Meanwhile, members of Anakbayan, a militant youth group, was shown on TV selling CDs of what they dubbed as “The Malacanang Scandal” for five pesos each to students in Manila.

Despite the President’s deafening silence on the issue, the Gloriagate controversy refuses to die.

By the way, Rep. Mikey Arroyo is on leave. Rep. Teddy Casiño says Mikey’s mother should follow.

  1. gloriagate as in watergate scandal. synonymous to saying it can/will bring down the president. the similarities are uncanny. a former nbi deputy director lead the expose vs. pgma and it was just revealed recently who deep throat was, who happens to be a former fbi director. amazing.

  2. What we need now are not reliable witnesses regarding this scandal but reliable investigating body and justice system. Wycoco and Gonzales should stop speaking on behalf of the president. They are there for the people and not for the president alone. If they are going to charge anybody for harboring Ong (an alleged criminal), they too must be charged for protecting an even bigger alleged criminal (an election cheat).

  3. The emergence of one T/Sgt.Doble doing another Udong Mahusay retraction only demonstrate we are not only a nation of thieves and cheats, we also have men and women who have yet to know the meaning of integrity. In the end, when all are asleep on the wheel, GMA and her phalanx of goons and weedsters will come up with another startling revelation and that is; the voice in the tape is not those of Gloria and Garcilliano. Fact is, it was Marilyn Monroe talking to Elvis Presley. Where do we go from here? I doubt we will be going anywhere so long as we have crooks at the helm of government affairs. How sad.

  4. ALL THE TIME I THERE A NOICE ABOUT A RALLY GLORIA IS THE FIRST TO BE IN A [PANIC AND HISTERICAL ABOUT BRINGING A THOUSAND SOLDIER TO STOP THEM (SHE DINDN’T TO BE IN AKARMA SITUATION LIKE SHE DO TO PRES. ESTRADA.)

  5. I look forward to the day when the president who is supposed to be the epitome of a woman with courage and integrity will accept humbly her mistake and whatever circumstances it may lead to. please madam, I dont want to wait eternally.

  6. Iba na ang meaning ng ECONOMIST:
    Economist – one who cheats and puts one nation’s economy six feet under the ground just to stay in power to “ROB” the fruit of every citizens hard labor.

  7. sana magsalta na ang lahat about the gloriagate tape in order to stop this foolishness.Im begging to the presedent to say something about it.hoy!mahiya k naman.

  8. Japanese leaders when face with scandalous situation, most of them opted to resigning. And see the result of this kind of attitude, umaasenso sila. Kaya di tayo umasenso sa pagkat gusto natin hindi tayo matanggal sa position, power greedy tayo, kaya hindi tayo umaasenso.

  9. All we hear from the administrations side is that the anti wiretapping law was breached…but arent they big idiots to say this? in fact, personally they are stupids… damn even a simple person can relate to this..ok…granted that there are wiretapping done… dang.. who was violated? only two persons!!! but if u would look deeper into the essence of the conversation any sane person would agree that its the entire nation…entire Filipino nation that was violated… they where cheated!!!…..now between the wiretapping & cheating a whole nation..i asked..what is the greater evil? violating the rights of two people or violating & stealing from millions? Oh my gosh, its high time for the bogus president to step down, plus the fact the her family is included in strings of scandals, from the brother-in-law down to her husband…and god knows who else? aint she ashamed of herself?????? or she is just used to it?….
    Dont make Filipinos look stupid in their own country & to all her army of “sip-sips” shame on urselves.

  10. OK… those cocksuckers in Mendiola. Really, don’t care specially the paneros and the kumares cause at the end of the day. They all say fuck the country and filipinos with no vaseline. Simple, what ever they do or say not one of those motherfuckers will ever go to jail. Funny… so, why bother at all… whose going to prosecute who??? Durrr?!!!! The statement how much do you offer so i can stall the prosecution. Shoot… freakin fat pig is in house arrest, Imelda is flaunting her crazy ass like she never murdered anybody, gringo cumsucking face still walks around after all the coup “kuno” pa eclat. Which we all know is a fake.. just enhance and glamour publicity of the country….. we can go on and on… still those idiots will never be responsible for their own actions…. Cause they are fuckin COWARD and shitless on what they do. By the way, damm KRIS is suckin a new a dick. Meaning, Robins, Gabby, Philip and Joey’s cock sactually went to Mr YAP’s mouth.

  11. this is just an ordinary problem over the philippines, even in the whole world that this kind ofpolitical problem is not as a new. Since the beginning of glorias regime, there are so many fabricated issues against her towards her government. But in her situation that the opposition saying, she’s not doing good in the government. But for me the government of Pres. Arroyo is the genuine and remarkable among the regime of the past president in our country. I really sallute her with her good and organized policy in her country. Atleast she made it good and she work for hard in her countrynot for anything else. Mabuhay ka presidente Arroyo. para sa akin ikaw pa rin ang nanalo.

  13. naku naman, sino naman ba ang iluluklok niyo sa pwesto ng pangulo? Si Inday ba? Baka, isang oras palang yan sa malacanyang puputaktihin na yan ng mga kamag-anak at mga kasama niya sa industriya. Naku isa pa yan si Rez Cortez, laus na yan kaya todo sip-sip yan sa mga opposition, baka nga naman ipwesto yan sa kitchen ng malakanyang. Kahit taga timpla lang kape ng mga bwisita. Ano na ba yan mga kababayan! di naba kayo nasanay o natuto man lang! kung ano-ano ang mga pangako ng mga hinayupak na mga politician na yan, then andito na naman kayo para magpauto. Mabigyan lang kayo ng tag isang humburger, nagsasasayaw na kayo dyan, para pagamit sa mga opposition na yan. Hoy, magbanat kayo ng buto para, makain nyo ang gusto nyong kainin, di yung mga panagako ng mga potician ang ina-asahan ninyo. Di kayo aasenso kung aasa na lang kayo sa gobyerno, kung puro na lang pagdaing ang iaasa ninyo sa gobyerno natin, di nga tayo aasenso. Kaya, por diyos por santo, ang dadami ninyong anak dyan tapos iaasa pa niyo sa gobyerno ang pakakain sa kanila, ano yan.

  14. Naku naman! Ano na naman yan! wala na banag katigil-tigil ang mga opposition na yan? Bakit nila pinagpipilitan si Inday na maging Presidente, ano ba ang kamalayan ng isang inday sa paghawak ng isang maselan na position sa ating bansa. E kung ang mga experto di pa nila magampanan ng husto ang paglilingkod sa sa ating bayan, yung isa pa kayang no read no write na artista. Susmaryosep naman mga tao kayo. Dito nakasalalay ang ating kapakanan, ang mga anak natin, papano na ang kanilang seguridad sa kanilang pag-aaral kung sino-sino lang ang ilalagay ninyo sa luklukan ng pangulo. Hoy mga hinayupak kayo, yugyugin nga ninyo ang mga ulo ninyo, baka wala ng buhay yang mga utak ninyo.

  15. now, now.. pres. arroyo has apologized.. Is saying sorry enough?
    Nope! She should face the consequences of her action and face the people’s wrath..

  16. I must say na magaling ang pagkaka sa dula ng pahayag ni Ginang Susan Roces para kay Pangulong Arroyo. Her passion, belief and conviction is really showing in her speech. Bravo to you Ms. Roces!

    Ngunit ang entabladong iyong tinatayuan ngayon ay hindi na puting tabing. Ito’y hindi na dula o pelikula na pagkatapos ng dalawang oras ay tapos na din at isa-isa na tayong mag uuwian sa ating tahanan. Baka iyong nakakalimutan na buhay na ng sambayanang Pilipino ang nais mong hawakan. Hindi biro ito! Hindi lamang sa init ng pag-arte ang basehan upang ikaw ay iluklok sa pinakamataas na posisyon sa bansa!

    Huwag mong linlangin ang taong bayan sa pagpaparating mong ika’y maybahay ng taong naapi at nasawi. Huwang mong ihalintulad ang sarili mo kay Cory Aquino na tunay na naapi. Ang kabiyak (Fernando) mo ay hindi bayani at siya ay pumanaw dahil sa karamdaman!

    Akala mo siguro ay may substansya ka, akala mo siguro ay may kakayanang kang mamuno, ang hindi mo alam, ginagamit ka lang ng mga taong may sari-sariling ambisyon upang lalong yumaman at maging makapangyarihan.

    Kung ikaw ay may malasakit sa BAYAN, manahimik ka na lamang. Lalo mo pang pinapagulo at pinapag hirap ang BAYAN!

  17. susan can serve as the catalyst for change but she shouldn’t be the one to be seated to presidency. iba dapat. and it’s not noli de castro or loren legarda, ok! bottomline, GMA has nothing to prove to the filipinos anymore. she said sorry all too late and she badly needs an acting coach to project sincerity. dedma na. i don’t think the nation cares that much anymore anyway. we are just so calloused of this political shit.

  18. we do not deserve such unethical president!!! Her husband at the same time her SON are both involved in JUETENG!!! WALA!!! PALAYASIN YAN sa malacanang!! GLORIA OUST, lalo mo lang pinahirapan ang buhay ng mga Pilipino…kita nyo, nag aalsa balotan na ang anak, asawa at bayaw ng walang hiyang presidenteng yan?bakit? eh wala ng iba pang rason kundi GUILTY yang mga kurakot na yan!!! Nag papaawa lang yang gloriang yan sa paniniwalang maniniwala pa tayo sa kanya…magpapa uto paba tayo? ang pilipino, hindi UTO UTO!!! matatalino tayo. Hindi natin kelangan ng PRESIDENTENG MANLOLOKO,dapat nyang panagutan lahat ng kasalanan nya, hindi natin ito dapat tinatanggap nalang. Simpleng batas ng tao yan, pag nagkasala, dapat malitis, kapag napatunayang may kasalanan, dapat managot!!!

  19. ei, I think we all have the right to say what we have i our minds but… In my own point of view.. ARROY cheated and it must be justify for the sake of the people…

  20. Here we go.. again. We’ve been seen this one before criminal go away in other words hide sa ibang lugar. While the kamag-anak make areglo so in the future they can come back and do same shit all over. Parang repeat performance. Over and Over and Over… tuloy. What the country want to see is, ALL THE MOTHERFUCKERS must be locked in jail. Not the pussy ass house arrest. That’s weak… imagine fatpig is such a baby that the fucking bitch can’t even go to a real jail. Hey… “fuck brain you did the crime do your time” and don’t forget to take your monkeyass lookin kids.

    For the GMA’s thugs, your FUCK!!! start with Bunye, Defensor and don’t his coward husband and son.

    Hey… Supreme Court of the PHILIPPINES. We want to see BLOOD, as in results and not excuses. Oh, shit… who i’m kiddin around here. Nowadays, everybody has a price???

    What to all the bright ones, the scholars, the matatalino of this country… can somebody please step up and tell those magnanakaws in Malacanang… that it’s game over motherfuckers… and paybacks a bitch.

  21. Filipinos should not be that personalistic in judging the present political crisis the the country is confronting. the people should know that there is such a law or constituion that wil have to determine the problem. lets not put in our hands the law. there is a proper forum so to discuss things like this. we need not to go to street and demonstrate rally that will ouster our president. what the country needs is a guidance from devine. in this time of crisis , God gives the best solution.

    i hope the likes of Brother Edie Villanueva, who is asking the resignation of the president , will see first the necessity of the people. i hope he will understand that the country is so tired of having another revolution. he have seen already the effect of this, especially the economic effect. hope he wil be enlighthen of this. i hope that he will disregard his vested interest on the political situation of our country. i hope that , not because he is still bitter that he supports the resignation of the president.

    to the catholic church. it is written on our country the separation of state asnd church, and yet you still do manage to do mingle with the State??? hope that your time to criticize the government would be use as a time to strengthen your faith to God. as the survey had revealed, many of your followers had already been losing there hope. hope that this thing would be the focus of your time and not to meddle already to the political issues of the country. it is not your responsibility.

    to Susan Roces. it is the right of every Filipino to express opinion to matters that affect us, especially if it is a national interest. but then, pls dont just comment, prove to us that what you are saying is true. you are just purely making an allegation without even facts that would support your claim. you are just a legal paradox of the opposition. better shut ur mouth if you dont know what you are talking about.

  22. di naman yung tao yung kailangang palitan eh. dapat, ung system… itong type of gov’t neten na REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY, walang kahahantongan… dahil di namn talaga tau nirerepresent ng mga taong niluluklok naten sa pwesto…. di ba?… kahit nga ang people power eh, hndi naman talaga vox populi, kasi ang nag uumpisa ng people power, mga midlle class…. hndi mga masa….

  23. hindi pa pagod ang pilipino sa rebolusyon!!! ang nagsabi niyan, media!!…. (tang ina, communication arts pa naman course ko sa UP)…. ang mamamayang Pilipino, di napapagod… dahil ang rebolusyon, di natatapos sa pananahimik at pagkapagod…. tuloy tuloy ito…. bakit kailangang mapagod?…. kung sa loob ng anim na buwan ay nakaupo pa rin si Gloria, magkakaroon tau ng isang diktador na pamahalaan…

    martial law will be declared…

    think about it…

  24. i would like to comment sa post ni willie matub… he’s right…. sa Japan, pag nagkamali ang isang namumuno, pagkaamin niya, ilang oras pa lang, bababa na siys sa pwesto… at maghaharakiri siya….

    sa PInas, khit inamin na, ok lang… kapalan ng mukha….
    ayun, eh… nagsorry si GMA pero walang emosiyon ang mukha niya… stern faced motherfucker…. eh kasi nasa kanya pa rin ang power. kaya tatawa lang siya. hahaha

  25. we will be in great trouble if some idiots would successfully oust Our President GMA….Think people, THINK..if not GMA then Who??? SUSAN ROCES????? oh c’mon give philippines a break….

  26. sana naman imbis na magayaw ang mga tao sa pilipinas eh magkaisa na lang tayo sana di na lang tayo democratic sana dictatorship na lang

  27. eh kc nman c Gloria masyado sakim. Gusto nya lahat sa kanya. Mayaman na nga cya gusto pa nya yumaman pero nagungurakot nman. Siguro kung hindi pa namatay si FPJ d cia aamin eh paano lalaban at lalaban c FPJ katulad ni Susan Roces. Bakit b kayo nagagalit kay Susan Roces, kau kaya ang lokohin ang asawa d kau magagalit. Ano kau manhid. Niloloko na paumapayag pa. Maawa nman kau sa sarili nyo ang mga boto nyo kay FPJ kay Gloria napunta nang dahil sa pandadaya. Kaya ung pabor pa rin kay Gloria, magtiis na lang kau dahil habang buhay tau nyang lolokohin hanggang cya ang nkaupo sa pagkapangulo.

  28. We Filipinos are God fearing people and a well known clever race. Next time during elections, please lang, dont vote those people na dati ng naka pwesto or laging candidates whose using money for their votes.
    Pinoy mag isip tayo at maging matalino. Tayo kasi ang nagdurusa sa kalokohan at pagkakamali nila. Marami ang nagugutom at nawawalan na ng pagbabago.
    Godbless at mabuhay ang pinas

  32. The President’s admission of the fact that indeed she talk to many including to an unmentioned COMELEC chair in her statement that included her apology does not exculpate her from the continuing efforts of the Filipinos to seek justice. Let Justice be served. I mean the “real essence” of justice if there really is in the Philippines.

  33. Miss President, as an economist you are supposed to think of the best initiative to put Philippine economy at its highest peak and yet what you’ve done is you are like dragging the economy down. “How ironical”,isnt it?Are you not sensitive of what your husband is doing?I dont think so. Better step down. Im not considering you as a lesser evil to perpetuate your plans. You are an evil yet unneccessary.

  34. Where.. i’m at right now, don’t have access with the Hardcore Media in telling the news of what’s the real time situation in Manila. Yes, i do have internet… but, it seems i can’t get a decent news regarding Arroyo’s jackass moves, all they say is everything is back to normal… Is that right?

    is there going to be an impeachment, beheading at the state, changing of the guards… ???? all i hear is, she admits.. but, not my voice. that’s arroyo but the tape was tampered. the filipino people supports me and some people wants me out of the office….

    Are they going to declare martial law or they’re just contemplating of having one! funny… like every country in southeast asia are two-three steps forward. Manila, is slow as a snail… and sometimes we are four steps backward and we stay back.. like in all, the way back….

    The “Bahala na” and the “Manana” habit in action…. I attended a Sociolgy symposium in NYC and the speaker made an example of the Philippines. Saying that it will take another 100 Years for this country to see some real genuine change… whether Social, Political, Economic or Public Educational reform…. Hey, it’s just my opinion… You guy’s take care and keep up the good fight….

  35. gloria had committed a simple mistake,intentional or unintentional.That simple mistake not rather simple because it almost eaten the morality and values of us filipinos.Having a leader who is not honest would result to leader by power and not for service.Gloria would seek valid reasons for her mistake and even say sorry with tears in her eyes.But its too late to be a hero,its like caughting your wife having horny conversation with your kumpare on phone.I’d rather forgive her but nerver forget.So i may say…honey, darling Gloria lets get a divorced.The filipinos deserved a honest, loyal,god fearing,etc. etc. etc. Simple message for a simple mistake,Madame President!!!!!! PLease gracefully,slowly RESIGN!!!!!!

  36. hay naku ang gulo gulo na talaga ng pilipinas d mo na alam kung cno ang paniniwalaan but i hope na maayos na lahat ng problemang kinahaharap ng ating bansa.. Basta maniwala lng tau sa Diyos.We need to pray n lng heheeheh.
