“The President is afraid of nothing”
- Sec. Rigoberto Tiglao
Yes she is really afraid of nothing. That is why she lifted the maximum tolerance policy and changes it to the Calibrated Preemptive Response (CPR). GMA is afraid of nothing, that is why she used some provisions of the Batas Pambansa Blg.880 (which was made during the Marcos dictatorship) to implement the CPR but neglected other portions of it that permits a public assembly in freedom parks without any government permit and that local officials should not hinder giving permits unless national security is concerned. Yes, the president is not afraid of her administration’s own ghost. She is not afraid of people power.
Yes she is really afraid of nothing. That is why she issued Executive Order 464, which prohibits any cabinet and military officials to attend any legislative hearings without her permission. Yes, she is not afraid that cabinet and military officials might expose something against her administration that is why the Malacañang would review first what should be the answers of the invited officials before letting them participate in the congressional inquiry. Yes, she is not afraid that cabinet and military officials be caught unguarded like what happened to National Security adviser Norberto Gonzalez that is why she is requiring the lower and the upper House to submit the questions beforehand. . She is afraid of nothing, not even in the senate inquiry, that is why Brig. Gen. Francisco Gudani would be relieved from his position and placed under the court martial because of his revelations. Well, she really afraid of nothing, right? Just look who is being protected by this moves of Malacañang, is it the general public? Is it the institution? Is it the constitution? Or just the three letters of the alphabet?
