    This input was from an editorial by Lito Banayo, ABANTE Tonite:

    Manny Villar was never poor.

    His mother was a market vendor in Divisoria while his father was a government employee. Right after the 2nd World War, government employment was one of the most sought after job due to high salaries during that period.

    They NEVER attended public schools. They were educated in private institutions. And they NEVER commuted when going to school. Hatid-sundo sila ng "stainless" jeep nila. Having a stainless transport during those times was considered a prestige.

    In 1987, Manny Villar was already a multi-millionaire! In his SALN, as a senator, he declared a networth of 1.24 Billion pesos. While the Forbes Magazine said that he has 24 Billion pesos, making him the 6th richest Filipino in the country.

    Then why lie? Isn't he proud of his parent's achievements?

    Siguro pwede nating sariwain yung sinabi ni Susan Roces: "ANG SINUNGALING AY KAKAMBAL NG MAGNANAKAW."

    TOTOONG ang isda ay sa bibig nahuhuli. Ganito ang nangyari kay Manny Villar.

    Inamin ni Villar, kandidatong Pangulo na hindi na nila kailangang magbayad ng “revolutionary tax” o “permit to campaign” dahil kasama na niya ang mga komunistang National Democratic Front at ang kanilang military arm na New People’s Army.

    “Bakit ako magbabayad sa kanila (NPA) samantalang kasama ko na sila. Sila ay aking mga kaibigan,” ani Villar sa media.

    Dahil sa kaibigan at kakampi ni Villar ang mga NPA, ang pangunahing layunin ay ibagsak ang lehetimong gob-yerno natin, ibig sabihin ay traidor si Villar sa ating gob-yerno. Isang AFP report ang tumutukoy na si Villar ang kandidatong Pangulo na sususportahan ng mga NPA. Mayroon daw silang nakuhang leaflets kung saan ay nakasaad na si Villar ang dapat tulungan ng mga tao.

    Ilan tuloy sa tanong ng taumbayan?

    Anong klaseng tao si Villar, nag-aambisyong maging Pangulo ang nasikmurang magtraidor sa ating gobyerno? Dapat bang iboto ang isang kandidato na gagawin ang lahat, pati na ang pakikiisa sa mga kaaway ng gob-yerno, manalo lang sa elek-syon?

    Hindi ba ang pakikipagkasundo ni Villar sa mga NPA ay tanda na kinikilala niya ang gobyerno ng mga komunistang rebelde?

    Kahit itinanggi ni Villar ang kanyang pakikipag-al-yansa sa mga NPA, matibay ang paniniwala ng militar sa kanyang relasyon sa kanila batay sa mga dokumentong kanilang nakuha.

    Kaya, mag-isip-isip tayo. Kung kaya ni Villar ang ma-kipag-“sweetheart deal” sa mga NPA, hindi kaya puwede rin niyang baluktutin ang katotohanan magtagumpay lamang siya sa kanyang matinding obsesyon na manirahan sa Malacañang?

    Bago sana kumandidato si Villar, hindi ba dapat ay nilinis muna niya ang kanyang pangalan sa kaliwa’t kanang land grabbing cases na isinampa laban sa kanya ng mga taong inagawan niya ng lupa sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng bansa?

    from MALAYA

    Senator Manny Villar has been making the rounds of broadcast media recently, to respond to various issues hounding his campaign, and dish out remarks against his main protagonist, who has recently been featured by Time magazine on its cover.

    Villar is particularly mad at the Villarroyo tag. He and his spokespersons have been denying this tag to death. He and they keep saying that it was he and his party-mates who “initiated” the investigation of all the graft scandals, from jueteng to Hello Garci, to the fertilizer scandal, and the ZTE-NBN anomalies. Vamos a ver.

    He was the chair of the Senate committee that investigated the jueteng scandals involving, as per the witnesses in the hearings, Mike and Iggy, y Mikey tambien. Who exposed these? Senator Panfilo Lacson in a privilege speech. Who convinced the witnesses to come out, and gave them protection? Senator Panfilo Lacson and Archbishop Oscar Cruz, together with his assistants in the crusade against gambling. What did Villar do? He presided over the hearings in the Senate.

    What did Villar not do? To this day he has not come out with a report. Now he takes pride in fighting jueteng. Ha, ha, ha.

    Who brought forth the Hello Garci scandal? Why, no less than Toting Bunye, then press secretary of La Dona Gloria. Everybody and his mother remembers the tale of the two discs. “I have two hands, the left and the right”…remember? Now Bunye sits in the Monetary Board, and represents the Board in the Numismatic Committee chaired by BSP Deputy Governor Diwa Gunigundo, who is rushing the approval and award of a highly suspicious New Generation Currency, to commit billions of pesos in newly-designed banknotes in midnight fashion, and to quote the Malacanang press release after GMA brought home the “bacon” that was the ZTE-NBN contract, “like a thief in the night”. Bunye was then the press secretary, right?

    When Hello Garci erupted into the national consciousness, Gilbert Remulla was chair of the public information committee in the lower House. Villar makes a big thing about then Congressman Noynoy Aquino’s vote not to hear the Garci tapes in public. Big deal.

    But when the gory details of Garci’s caper sank in, the Liberal Party headed by Frank Drilon, Butch Abad, Mar Roxas, Kiko Pangilinan and Noynoy atoned for their coalition with GMA in 2004, publicly calling in a press conference at the Club Filipino for GMA to resign. Where was Villar and his Nacionalistas? Gilbert made noise. Cynthia voted with the impeachment crew, upon the prodding of Ronnie Zamora. But Manny Villar? As quiet as the Sphinx of Egypt, which he and his fellow Nacionalistas saw in 2007, as his blow-out after re-election, and where he intimated, with Sphinx and the mummies at Luxor as sacred witnesses, that he would be president in 2010.

    While Drilon and Abad went to Hongkong to dog Vice-President Noli de Castro into taking over the presidency from the beleaguered Gloria, where was Villar and his Nacionalistas? Tell you what:

    Upon arrival at the NAIA from Hongkong during those tense days following the “I am sorry” speech, VP Noli went straight to the Forbes Park mansion of Senador Joker Arroyo, where Manny Villar and Don Joker convinced VP Noli not to bite the Liberal offer, and stick it out with GMA. So who saved Gloria from Noli in the heyday of Hello Garci? He, he, he.

    Cory Aquino and her entire family took a patriotic stand in those days. They did support GMA against Erap, but when they learned about the evil that Gloria committed, they denounced her. Sometime later, Cory publicly humbled herself when she apologized to Erap for her role in Edsa Dos. All of us commit errors of judgment. But good people retract when they see they had been had. Manny Villar, like the Sphinx, was and is — a moral riddle. Como la Dona — amoral?

    Who is running for governor of Capiz, under a local party coalesced with the Nacionalista Party, and whose jailbird orange tarpaulins proudly proclaim Manny Villar as their “presidinti”? Why, Joc-Joc Bolante, one of the most prominent icons of corruption in this benighted land. Mismo!

    And who initiated the ZTE-NBN investigation in the Senate? Not Villar. Not Alan. Not Joker, who even prevented Romy Neri from spilling his heart out in executive session. Again it was Ping Lacson. It has always been Ping Lacson who had the guts to disclose the sordid affairs of the most powerful in this land. Now Villar wants to grab the credit, and appear “opposition”. Did Alan the motor-mouth come out with a committee report? Nein. Nunca. Madi. Wala gyud!

    But the interviewers in media never brought these out. They “politely” accepted Villar’s tall tales, instead of telling him to his face what a liar he is.

    Villar and his Remulla taunts Noynoy for accepting Joey Salceda into the Liberal Party fold. Alright, I agree. I have always disliked turncoatism. I tried to stop Erap in May of 1998 from accepting into the LAMMP fold the 49 recruits Rep. Manny Villar presented to him, after Erap had clearly won. Weeks later, Manny Villar became Speaker of the House, over the objections of Joker Arroyo, to whom Erap had promised the speakership months before. Now Joker is Villar’s consiglieri di tutti. Ang buhay nga naman!

    But what about Cagas of Davao del Sur, Aumentado of Bohol, Barbers of Surigao Norte, Plaza of Agusan (not Ompong), Uy of Compostela, Zubirri of Bukidnon, Garcia of Cebu, El Chavit de Ilocos Sur, not to forget Bolante, and now the prize catch — the Ampatuans of Maguindanao? Of course, the Marcoses and Romualdezes as well, and even Arturo Pacificador of Antique, the man who escaped criminal prosecution under a warped justice system for the murder of Evelio Javier. Ben Abalos, that other icon of corruption along with Joc-Joc is also part of Villar’s caboodle. Joey Salceda, though Gloria’s student turned adviser, has at least dared to call her publicly “one lucky bitch”, and other misdemeanors she could not even rebuke.

    Villar now declares that he would even “encourage the prosecution” of Mrs. Arroyo after June 30, because of her numerous anomalies. Ha, ha, ha! Tell that to Marine Col. Ariel Querubin, your candidate for senator. With Joc-joc and Joe, Chavit and Andal Jr. proudly wearing your jailbird orange colours, you would prosecute their Dona? Again, tell that to the Marines.

    Villar protests further: “I’m not seen as a critic of anybody. That’s my style. I would rather do things than say them,” he said. Yes indeed, you just “do things”, like apportioning your pork barrel and DPWH regular budgetary appropriations to fund phase after phase of that snake-like road called Daang Hari, the better to connect one to the other of your 22 subdivisions in the area. You’ve made sure 1.97 billion pesos of the people’s money to construct Daang Hari would jack up the prices of the erstwhile irrigated farm lands you stitched together. And later, having acquired by hook or by crook more lands in Muntinglupa and San Pedro, you connected Daang Hari to a Daang Reyna. Breath-taking!

    And because the Liberals were joined by Salceda of Albay, economic adviser of Dona Gloria, Villar and his Remulla now say Aquino will increase taxes, especially the VAT. And the broadcast reporter interviewing him did not even bother to ask whether or not Villar voted for E-VAT. Because as senator, Villar voted for Gloria’s consumer tax. But as congressman, Noynoy Aquino along with Chiz Escudero voted against E-VAT. Sure Ralph Recto also joined the LP, but Noynoy in a speech before the Makati Business Club categorically said that he would not impose new taxes, and when Gary Teves pined for a 15% E-VAT, Aquino immediately said “No way!”. Villar before the same Makati businessmen said, in clear terms, that he is not averse to increasing taxes. The point is, Villar lies when it is convenient for him to do so.

    Just as he lied about the circumstances of his brother’s death, and conveniently denies whatever, but never explains his side on issues like Norzagaray, San Pedro, Daang Hari, Daang Reyna, Bacoor, Molino, Savannah, and of course C-5 where his peers caught him abusing power for personal aggrandizement. Whenever he is accused, he cries “black propaganda” and tells his critics off by challenging them to go to court. Just like his Dona Gloria. Parehong-pareho talaga sila.

    Tell you what, Mr. Villar. Should you finally get to Malacanang, retain Gary Olivar and Charito Planas as your spokesmen. After all, Adel and Gilbert would not be ready to assume their posts till after one year, because of the constitutional ban on senatorial wannabe’s who do not make it.

    [SIZE="3"]Villar pressure on PSE to okay stock offering bared[/SIZE]

    By Norman Bordadora, Tetch Torres
    Philippine Daily Inquirer,
    First Posted 12:55:00 04/22/2010

    MANILA, Philippines – Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Senator Manuel Villar earned P26 billion – P5 billion of which he supposedly earmarked for his presidential campaign – from an allegedly irregular transaction in 2007 involving his holding company’s shares.

    Former president Joseph Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile made this disclosure in a news conference on Thursday morning.

    Presenting minutes of the Philippine Stock Exchange discussions in 2007 on Villar’s Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc., Enrile said Villar appeared in a regular meeting of the PSE board and then had a caucus with them in June 2007.

    As a result of Villar’s appearance before the PSE board, Enrile said, the board allowed the release from escrow of locked-up VLL shares for the company’s public offering.

    “From the record of all these proceedings, there is no doubt in my mind that Senator Manuel Villar himself lobbied and exerted pressure to railroad the approval of his family-owned company’s request for exemption to enable him and his family to sell their shares which were otherwise subject to lock-up at a hefty premium!” Enrile said.

    “Dahil sa palusot na ginawa ni Manny Villar, maraming gumaya at sumunod sa kanya. Mas marami pang mga investor sa stock exchange ang maaring naloko at nalugi. Sinira ni Manny Villar at ng mga kasabwat niya sa PSE Board ang integridad ng Philippine Stock Exchange [Because of the maneuvering of Manny Villar, many imitated and followed his example. Many more investors in the stock exchange may have been fooled and lost money. Manny Villar and his accomplices in the PSE Board have damaged the integrity of the Philippine Stock Exchange],” he added.

    “Ito ba ang uri ng tao na dapat iluklok ng sambayan bilang susunod na Pangulo ng Pilipinas [Is this the kind of person the people should install as the next President of the Philippines]?” Enrile said.

    "I ask Senator Villar to respond to these and other allegations squarely and convincingly. Our people, especially the poor who, he purports to represent must be given an explanation by a presidential aspirant that he has not taken advantage of them to become rich," Estrada said.

    Estrada said this showed that Villar was directly managing his company which was a violation of the law.

    "He should have divested all his interest when he assumed his position as senator," Estrada said.
