The Making of Jun Lozada

I suppose Jun Lozada, the Senate’s latest witness on the ZTE scandal, has always been who he is; his decision to come out with what he knows at great risk to himself and his family must have been prefigured by something he did, or something he learned, when he was still young.

But in the public eye, his image remains unsettled. If we can use the Inquirer editorials as a gauge of public opinion, we can say that, in a mere week, Lozada has evolved from being an almost-fugitive, an unwilling witness and the subject of an unfortunately necessary arrest warrant; to a victim of remorseless forces and brutal circumstances, an official kidnapping even; to a courageous witness bearing believable testimony.

Today, when he faces the Senate, he will have a chance to define himself even more sharply before the public.

    THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, JUN LOZADA IS NEVER BEEN COURAGIOUS. HE IS HIDING INSIDE THE SKIRT OF THOSE NUNS AND BROTHERS. AND FOR THOSE WHO STILL ADMIRE THE GUY, JUST THINK IT OVER AND TRY TO SEE AND REALIZE IT. WHAT IN THE GUY’S MIND TO SHOW UP AND PRESENT HIMSELF US A WITNESS AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN GONE FOR HONG KONG. WHAT HE’S BEEN DOING IN HONG KONG IS PERHAPS MEET WITH SOME OF HIS FELLOW DISTABILIZERS AND PLAN WHAT TO DO. IF HE CLAIMS THAT HE WAS ABDUCTED IN THE AIRPORT WHEN HE ARRIVED , HE COULD HAVE BEEN ABDUCTED ALREADY WHILE HE’S STILL IN HONG KONG. WHAT STUPID MOVE IN THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT, ISN’T IT? ABDUCTING A PERSON IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU ARE AWARE OF THE CONSEQUENCE THAT WILL HAPPEN? IT IS VERY STUPID PLAN. AND STUPID ARE YOU PEOPLE WHO TRIES TO DISTABILIZE MY COUNTRY, INCLUDING YOU, MR. LOZADA.

    Lozada created an elaborate scheme of envolving a lot of key public servant and erode their reputation. He’s crying because truth of he’s going on the side of the opposition and worrying if he did a wise decision. Taking chance if the oppostion didnt win, he’ll loose all his own creedy posession

    For me, Jun Lozada is a hero for the whole Filipino race. I have not seen such bravery and credibility. He did not want to be in the spotlight but circumstances did not give him any other option. And why some people are attacking him? Are they blind? Open your eyes!!! We need more people like Jun Lozada. He’s not even a full blooded Filipino but he cares and have a lot of love for the Philippines. Jun Lozada, you are my hero. GOD bless you and your family.

  4. Edwin Cruz

    Let us give Jun Lozada our thanks for shedding light on how the goverment works. In his own words, 20% commission is “normal” in goverment contracts, the fact that Mike Arroyo and his cohorts demanded almost 50% kickbacks on the ZTE deal is nauseating.

    Let us hope that there are more filipinos that are willing to risk it all to tell the truth.

    What is sad is that the majority of filipinos is so used to the norm, that the Arroyo administration has taken this for tacit approval for their actions.

    If we were angered when Erap got his Jueteng money, we should be outraged by this corruption.

    This is PLUNDER and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  5. joel

    Jun Lozada is an epitome of a modern day hero. Brave and willing to stare the devil in the eye, sad to say the devil/devils are in malacanang living their crooked lives to the fullest. Lozada has nothing to gain and has everything to lose in his decision to spill out the horrible truth of graft and corruption in the government. He cannot please all people to support him and believe his testimonies but judging from the senate hearings, the pro arroyo senators just showed their true colors. They just could not do anything to cover up the obvious corruption and the truth, instead they have to destroy Lozada’s life. What a pity, Miriam the insane, Joker the Big Joke Pikon and the grumpy old Enrile. You ought to burn in hell all of you!

    Jun Lozada is “BAKLA”!!! gusto lang nya maging sikat and besides why do you guys think biglang lumabas yan? maybe because hindi naging fair para sa kanya ang hatian ng commission.Ginugulo mo ang bansa…kung talagang diretso kang tao dpat di ka nainvolved dyan in the first place.mahiya ka naman!Isa kang Baklang Intsik!!!!

  7. Francis E.

    Sorry pero di ata dapat na maging modern hero si Mr. Lozada sa dahilan na sya mismo ang nagsabi na corrupt din sya. Pwede sya patawarin sa nagawa nya pero ibalik nya muna ang pera sa bayan ang pinagkakitaan nya sa maling paraan and as a reward tulad ng nagiging star witness ng kahit anong crimen di na sya paparusahan. Imagine kung di lang garapal si Abalos $65,000,000 kayang palusutin ni Lozada??? Bilyong pesos yun, malaking halaga para tulungan ang mga batang kalakal o batang kalabaw (check nyo na lang sa reporters notebook at sa sine totoo kung ano ibig kong sabihin).

  8. Francis E.

    Sa ibang senador naman… please lang gumawa kayo ng batas na magsusupil sa corruption… bigyan ko kayo ng idea… bakit hindi ipalabas o isulat sa peryodiko ang mga proyekto para naman nalalaman ng taong bayan ang garapalan sa presyo 1 page everyday o ilang minuto sa telebisyon kapalit ng mas mababang buwis ng tv network o ng newspaper company, im sure it wont cost a billion pesos a year lost due to tax revenue compaired to $65,000,000 sa isang deal lang!!! Sadya bang tanga ang taga gawa ng batas o proteksyon lang sa pang sariling kapakanan??? Automatic 20% saan kaya napupunta??? Nagtatanong lang po.

    I watched ch2 earlier, its abt Harapan..Lozada vs Abalos.And in my pt of view, Abalos made himself embarassing infront of the cam. He doesnt even understand what he is talking about… Hello.. It doesnt take a genius to undedtand eveything..They should have also invited Gloria to join them as well as Mike Arroyo.. So that we would be able to know the truth.. I find Lozada credible..Thanks to him..

    This guys does not know what the hell he’s saying. I also agree that he seems to be hiding behind the church and whatever. Although I do not live in the Philippines anymore, I still care for it. Think about it this way, if you think he’s a hero, please just don’t. He’s not a hero because as I stated earlier, he has no idea what in the world he’s saying. I believe he has good intentions, but he needs better representation and a more decent debate. To be honest, I do not trust this guy, and whether he’s telling the truth or not, I can say that it is not an absolute fact he is telling us all. I think he’s giving us a twisted truth, and hiding more important facts as well.

  12. post meridiem

    Lying in front of the Senate to bring down the administration is not an easy thing to do at all. And why would he want to do that ALONE in the first place? Please.

    And for people who are against Lozada with nothing more to say than call him “bakla,” get a life.

  13. maeia

    i think this jun lozada man was just not paid exactly by what he wants that’s why he told this fake stories and practiced it very much to meet the questions of the senate.

  14. tingin-tingin

    well, i’ll go for lozada kaysa kina atienza, fg arroyo, gma, bunye, and ABALOS. mas maniniwala naman ako kay lozada kaysa sa kanila na dati pa eh expert na sa pagsisinungaling. lalo na ‘tong si Abalos na sabik na sabik sa suhol! no wonder nakapasok si zubiri sa senate.

    dati sobrang bilib ako kay joker arroyo pero sa mga nakikita ko ngayon, parang guston kong maniwala na binigyan talaga sya ng P150M para tumakbo under the gma’s ticket. tsk tsk tsk…

  15. amorie

    It is sickening and shameful how the Philippine government works… and what is even more sicketing is all the people who leave these hateful comments and personal attack towards Mr. lozada. Are you all blind? have you not seen the lives of OUR Filipino countrymen living in the streets, in shipping containers, in mountains of garbage and children that cries themselves to sleep because they have nothing to eat. These are the people that Mr Lozada is fighting for. These are the conditions that all of us ignore… these are facts that the government have done nothing about, instead of actually looking in and doing something to help them out, they would instead get involve in businesses that boost their wealth. The simple fact is, high government officials should not even be involve at in business dealings as such due to conflict of interest, it’s quite obvious that they are trying to make as much money as they can while they are still in power.

  16. toto

    i beliv jun lozada is teling the truth….No matter how you look at it….he is really telling the truth………If you compare the statements of jn lozada compared to abalos, defensor, razon, atutubo, and others…it is very clear that there are loopholes to their story….Imagine all of those people who are against the statement of jun lozada are government employees…It is really very clear…. every politicians are corrupt I BET….Politics is a damn good business…During election they will try their best to win…They will spend a lot….and to think ang liit aman ng salary ng mga politicians…….natural kukunin nila yon sa tinatawag nilang SOP…20% commission or whatever..Ganon talaga…Bulok talaga ang sistema….No matter how good you are…Lalamunin ka ng sistema…And i really thank jun lozada for taking the first step of what they call moral revolution….Jun Lozada..Thanks a lot….Sana manalo ka sa ipinaglalaban mo…and Hoy Neri nakakahiya ka..magsabi ka na ng totoo…I know there are circumstances that is holding him to tell the truth…but i also believed he is a good person…talagang nilamon lng ng sistema….Look at how he talked about this issue in the senate b4…He is really straight to the point though who made reservations….He is doing it on safeground….When he was offered 200 by abalos..that is really true..when he told about the president about the bribery(attempted/whatever) thats also true…and when the president told him not to accept it…thats also true…yes of course she just cud not tell it directly to neri that she is really behind these…..Arroyo is a competent president and a persistent businesswoman….malaki kac ang nagasto nya sa pandaraya…..5H1T…

    I believe mr. lozada,though i believe that some people involved are victims as well. It’s easy to believe, it’s even easier to judge.. I believe that truth would come out, 70% of it more or less… well, at least with this nbn deal. but my question is would it be able to change the system. Would it eradicate corruption??? I don’t think so, especially everytime I see those politicians.. asking questions that is obviously not related, that is obviously using this to bring them back to power, make themselves look clean and heroic. Well in fact they are doing the exact same thing.. gaining commission and all. That sees all of this as a way to defeat their political enemies using the rage of Filipino. I am not saying we let this pass and just shut up. But I also hope we all think the consequences and the much more important change we need.. not the administration per se.. but the system in general.

    I have been working with gov’t for the last 3 yrs. We have million worth of projects. I am not a director or those with SG-22, but I have seen good and bad people in it. And Mr. Neri is one of those good people. He may not know me, but his simplicity and humble way of conducting board meetings.. made me realize that there are in fact good people in the gov’t worthy of trust and just there to do his job.. hindi sya pa-importante..ndi sya egoistic.. ndi sya pulitiko.. sa pagsasalita man o pgdedesisyon. I didn’t even know then that he was the sec. But during the meeting, I’ve seen how he reviewed project proposals. One of his comments I wouldn’t forget was.. ” You don’t spend 6M to experiment alone..” But he was wrong to follow orders from those much more powerful than him, those who knows how to play the game.. He was wrong to think he can’t do anything and he’s no longer in control, that he had no choice but to approve.

    But who am I to judge him? All of us working here.. a question.. If your boss tells you to do something or else it would cost you your job or life.. Would you have the guts to say no?If you say yes, congratulations but with my 4yrs of experience working, around 80% would never have the guts to say no, no matter how small or big the task is.

    95% of politicians I think is committing corruption in one way or another, or using their position to protect vested interests. and 75% of politicians always present on tv asking questions are as dirty as the one they are trying so hard destroy..with our help of course. I’m asking myself right now..

    q If we succeed in overthrowing the current president. What’s next? Who’s next?
    q Pano na un mga tao ni 100 piso ndi magawa kumita sa isang araw? Na walang capacity na mangibang-bansa dahil suka na sa Piipinas? Kung wala ginawa mga tao sa gobyerno kundi magbatuhan ng putik. And the professionals who can contribute to progress are there rallying?
    q What if un inisip natin na tama? Mali pala.. And it’s too late to correct things.. Kawawang Pilipino

    Let’s be vigilant at the same time think of Better and long-term solutions.

  18. kulot

    What can I say….It seems that history repeats itself. things that happended to Erap regime is happening again, only better. Arroyo regime learned so much from Erap, especially from his mistakes. There is no much difference with what chavit singson and clarissa ocampo exposed that triggered the EDSA revolution. This time it’s Joey de Venecia and Jun Lozada. I completely believe in what they said about ZTE NBN project and its good that it is now been cancelled. I just hope that everything about that project ends here because if they were asking for a change of government, I think it is a different issue that should be dealt in different manner. I am not saying that the people responsible for the corruption should not be run after. I believe that they should be accountable for the mistakes that they did. But change of goverment is not really the answer because it will be a precedent, that happened to Erap, might happen to Arroyo, and we do not want that to happen in the next government. That will not do us any favor. Corruption is already a way of life in our country. Our political leaders and all government officials will not be there if they cannot get any advantage on their day to day dealings. But please do it moderately. I pity the people living in the remote areas. People who do not have access to roads and has to walk tens of kilometers just to go to schools or churches or market or wherever. They need farm to market roads that will last long. Please moderate your greed so that people can have access to roads, can get free or cheaper medicines, hospitals, school buildings for their children, clean water, etc.. so many things, so many people suffering, please open your eyes.

    I believe that Jun was just a victim of a corrupt government. Well, we all know Ninoy Aquino and I think he is just like him. HE knew alot of the garbages of our government, made contact with CORRUPT people, and almost fell to the temptation of huge money. For a fourteen year old like me, he is a blessing to the senate. Eventually, he might open the eyes of this people to change for good.

  20. Jimbo

    Teddy Casino compared Jun Lozada to Clarissa Ocampo. Let’s face the reality thought that he’s more like a minor league Chavit Singson, who was party to a corruption in his own minor league “permissible way.” He was no saint – if he was then he would have bolted at the first scent of Abalos. Instead he stuck with the project but bailed out when Abalos threatend to kill him. If not for that he would be in there moderating greed all the way.

    This fits in with his pre-Government career as a glib, wheeler-dealer serial businessman with a chain of failed companies, always out for the next score. Philforest was just another gig, thanks to his friend Romy Neri. It must have been just another money making opportunity for him – and as his own admission indicates, he did get his own share of grease from the gig.

    The reason Lozada is testifying now is because its his only chance of survival. Courage and altruism has nothing to do with it – it’s all about self-preservation. He never wanted to testify in the Senate to begin with. Let’s call a spade a spade shall we?

  21. Citizen X

    I think this country should be asking the bigger questions here. Regardless, of whether Jun Lozada is friend or foe, hero or villain, conspirator, or accomplice. One fact we can’t deny, is that he exposed yet another corruptive scheme of our amazing gov’t. Amazing coz the people in office have the stomach to take a blind eye & greedy pockets, on the deep turmoil our country has been experiencing ever since time immemorial.
    We keep forgetting what history has taught us, and yet we are surrounded by it everyday. How many years were we enslaved by the Spaniards? How many years have the Americans been a part of our government’s decision making during the Marcos’ regime? To think we even needed their recognition for our OWN independence day! Don’t get me wrong, I love America, as a matter of fact, I’m 25% American, but I’m 100% loyal to my country the Philippines. And it’s a sad fact that our people have to find work elsewhere to support their families. We are servants in their countries, and when you come to think of it, we are still servants in our own. What people hold the business sectors in our country? Isn’t it the Chinese, or some other foreigner? Even for the small businesses, like the vendors et al. Who do they run to, to lend them money? The Indians! Why is that? Doesn’t it enrage you being a servant in your own country? And due to what? The highest forms of reptiles in our gov’t.

    Sa totoo lang magmula ng maging tao ako, korupsyon na ang nakagisnan kong gobyerno. Nakakawindang na, grabe na talaga. Para bang normal na talaga ang korupsyun sa pang araw araw, na dapat nating tanggapin na may katumbas na pursyento na dapat ‘ilagay’ sa kung sinomang nakaupo na nangangasiwa sa proyekto o ng anumang ahensya ng gobyernong kelangan nating lapitan.
    KAILAN BA MAGBABAGO ANG MGA LIDER NG BANSA NA HUMUHULMA SA GOBYERNONG NAG DEDESISYON SA PARAAN NG PAMUMUHAY NG BAWAT PILIPINO?
    KAILAN MATITIGIL ANG KORUPSYON?
    ITO BA ANG SINASABI NI RIZAL NA ANG MGA BATA ANG KINABUKASAN NG ATING BANSA, ANO ANG MAGIGING KINABUKASAN NILA, KUNG GANITO ANG GOBYERNO NATIN NGAYON?

    I think we’ve had too many Edsa Revolutions, to prove that we have time and again, put in position a corrupt govt. What do we need to change? The people running the gov’t, or the kind of gov’t itself?
    It’s a sad fact that a half breed (no insult intended) Filipino in the person of Mr. Jun Lozada had the guts to stand up to those bulging corrupt officials. To be questioned, to be ridiculed, to be terrorized day after day, and undergo this agonizing reality. Again, if he’s a fake, so what? Isn’t what he’s claiming, not true? Whether you take a 20% or a 50% commission isn’t the bigger question here, it’s the fact that this gov’t did! Can one say, “Oh I just stabbed him once, I didn’t shoot him, he just died 20% not 50%!” A crime is a crime people. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball!
    So the bigger, and probably biggest question here is, what do we DO after this? Put another corrupt gov’t in office? Isn’t it commonsense, if something hasn’t been working for what 40 years more or less, then it won’t ever work? Let’s do steps to change. Does it really matter if we give up our democracy for a freer life? (Or is this still a democratic country at all?) Free from oppression, Free from poverty, Free from ignorance, and most of all, Free from a corrupt gov’t. What is democracy anyhow, if our children are becoming dumber and their stomachs are empty?
    It took one man to stand up to the Spaniards, and his life to start a revolution to gain our independence. How many men will it take to reclaim our True Nation’s Freedom? Would it take a Ninoy Aquino, a Clarissa Ocampo, or a Jun Lozada to open our wide shut eyes to the whole truth and nothing but the damning truth? And when we find the truth, what are we willing to do about it?

    Those who are trying to demean the witness’ (JUN Lozada) are using the oldest trick of a defense lawyer, to put down a man’s character so he won’t deem credible. Aside from the dramatics of all of this fiasco’, let us keep a watchful eye on the FACTS please, not the MAN. If anything, Jun Lozada may be that vessel of liberation we haven’t experienced since Pres. Ramon Magsaysay. Or does our freedom come in percentages too?

  22. shakeyambs

    The search for truth in our government has always been the impetus for political change in the country. Jun Lozada’s testimony is but part of this cycle, the cycle that Filipino people have grown to be accustomed to because of the reiteration of events that only garner the same results. It is perhaps fortunate that Lozada is now airing transgressions that will further shed light on the credibility of our government but why public clamor mounts him as a hero is disappointing. Lozada’s intentions to testify were not voluntary, his accord to participate in this hearing was brought about by the same fear that consumed him when he left for HongKong, and if fear is the agent for which Lozada acts, how can we, as a Filipino nation, riddled with the effects of previous lies, believe him?

  23. limasingko

    Wake up my countrymen! Corruption has been the favorite past time of most public officials in our beloved homeland and no one seems to be doing something to curb the evil way. Even those in the senate who are investigating the ZTE matter are themselves, in one way or the other, corrupt. Imagine spending so much time and money “in aid of legislation” -so they say, to extract the truth from people, in exchange for constructive acts that can contribute to the Filipinos’ welfare. The truth is … the project did not materialize and there are lessons that public officials must learn. Today is the best time for those in the congress and senate to formulate laws to lessen, if not eliminate, corruption among public officials. Don’t waste your time on investigations and formulating another people power- it’s not constructive. Let’s move on and do something worthwhile and better for our country.

  24. al

    Yes, i agree that even the senate are also corrupt not only them but all politician are in the same blood line. They are just taking this opportunity for publicity and pretending innocent to eyes of filipino people. Election is coming this 2010, dont let them to use us.

    We dont know the truth and we dont have the rights to persecute anyone. let us take this issue in the court. If we want change, start from yourself.

    These anomalies that our nation facing right now specially with the current goverment does not give a positive impressions to the people of the Philippines, to the coutry itself and to the current administration. I hope they will resolve these issues as soon as possible and punish whoever responsible(s)for tese wrong doings. Im appealing to all Filipino people to stay united and respectful with the present administration, and value the importance of peace and order. Praying and hoping for Truth and Justice. God Bless Us All!!!!

Atienza. Wala naman talaga syang pakialam sa ZTE deal… Pakana lang ito lahat ni LACSON.. Nag meet na sila December pa lang at Bago tumestigo si Lozada e may in-author si LACSON para maprotektahan ang isang witness sa SENADO. Pinalala lang ito ng MEDIA – Radio Print at TV. Tingnan nyo na lang ang akting nya sa SENADO na lagi lumalaki ang MATA.. ANG mga tusong NGITI nya pag nalaman nyang marami na syang taga suporta! Sa loob loob nya ay HIGH na HIGH ang Feeling nya ngayon dahil ang dami nyang nauuto at sikat na sikat pa sya ngayon! WALANGHIYA ngayon lang ako magkokomento sa mga Blog o forum at paalala lang sa mga NABUBULAG ng mga diskarte ni LOZADA, MAGSIMULAT KAYO! Sa dami ng mga kinamkam ni Jun Lozada bilang Chair ng Philforest at pinamahagi sa mga kapatid nya, kailangan nyang magtagumpay upang hindi ito mabisto o mabawi sa kanya. LOOK BEHIND THE EYES OF JUN LOZADA>>> SA isip isip nya kapag nagtagumpay siya at BUMABA si GMA ng dahil sa kanya isa na syang HERO ng ating Bansa na maikukumpara sa IDOL nyang si Jose Rizal… WAG LANG MAKINIG SA IISANG PANIG. TUNAY NGANG TOTOO ANG ibang pinagsasasabi ni Jun Lozada ang matindi nga lang e pinaikot ikot nya at ginamit nya ang mga NAUTO nyang GOVT Officials kasi siya naman talaga ang unang humingi ng tulong sa mga ito. NANINIWALA ako na nauto lang nya sina SEC. Atienza, GAITE, DEFENSOR, RAZON atbp. MAGSIMULAT KAYO MGA NABUBULAG NA KABABAYAN! JUN LOZADA IS A FAKE!

  30. @LA. it seems that you are living in some parallel philippines. destablize the Philippines because of lozada’s testimony? do you call our country stable? does the increase in GNP make our country stable? wake up! people are hungry. stability is not just measured through figures. where’s the trickle down effect?we pay ridiculous but it doesn’t go all the way to public investment. Go and see PGH and you’ll realize how poor our health sector is.

    why don’t you try to immerse yourself with the people from the slums and let us see if you can say what you posted again with conviction.

    ad hominem. hmm, i guess it can’t be helped.reputation war na eh. however, Even if he became a part of a system catering to corrupt officials, it does not change the fact that corruption has become systematic in the government. And that is something we want to eradicate. That is something we have to change. We have to find out the truth and hold those who are accountable. Oust Gloria? Why not? It is time we stop tolerating corruption.

    there are those who say that we should just let the issue die down and wait for the 2010 elections. what a shame. not only because we let an “evil” woman rule the country even for 2 years more but we had given up on truth. the search for truth. we let corruption rule. and that’s the saddest part. sit, watch and do nothing else. maintain the status quo. we’re not zombies.

    kaya pa bang tiisin ng mamamayang pilipino ang 730 pang araw na isang kahid, isang tuka? minsan pa nga, wala.

    kaya pa ba natin?

    I recently came across the website below regarding Mr. Jun Lozada and I thought I should share it with you:

    It might help us arrive at a clearer discernment of the truth about the ZTE controversy.

    To Jun Lozada: are you happy now? kitang-kita sa mukha mo ang nag-uumapaw na kaligayahan at kagalakan dahil nasa iyo ang pokus ng kamera. dami mong fans. kung kamag-anak mo si ike lozada, hindi hamak, dinaig mo siya.anong panama sa ‘yo ni cristopher de leon sa husay mong magpatulo ng luha? bilib na bilib sa ‘yo mga pinoy, kaya lang, marami ka pang asin na kakainin bago ako mapabilang sa mga nabola mo. puwede na sana, muntik na, kung walang lacson, cory aquino, erap, madrigal, et al… isa lang kayo ng mga kulay. isa lang ang inyong mga balat, isa lang ang inyong objective: pabagsakin si gloria. pero naisip na ba ninyo na ang objective ninyong yan ang mismong magpapakuba sa kahirapan sa mga pilipino? bakit? magsipirmi na lang kasi kayo sa mga bahay ninyo. ikaw, lozada ay puwede pang tubuan ng buhok kung mangunguyakoy ka na lang sa bahay ninyo, tama na pa-cute, nakasuka na rin naman ang mnukha mo sa screen, hehe. ang masaklap niyan, baka tularan ka pa ng mga kabataan,baka isipin ng henerasyon ngayon na, ‘puwede pala ‘yung mag-iimbento ka lang ng sasabihin at puwede ka nang sumikat. instant.’ halatang halata sa hitsura mo na halos tumulo laway mo sa tuwa kapag tinatamaan ka ng kamera. kung wala kang hawak na anumang ebidensya, itulog mo na lang yang mga pangarap mo.. pampasikip lang kayo ng kalsada, alam n’yo ba ‘yan? ikaw at ang mga kala-kaladkad ninyo sa lansagan, isa kayong dakot na kalat sa kalye. dapat sa inyo, pagkakagaling ninyo sa martsa, dumeretso na kayo sa basurahan, kayo na magtapon sa mga sarili ninyo.

    May the lord jesus goide you always to yhe truth.

  36. Jun Lozada? He is just one of Lacson’s puppets. He was so afraid to show up at the Senate hearings because he was’t sure of what he had to say. He was reading a script handed down to him in exchange of a huge sum of protection money. His mission was just to implicate the First Couple whom Lacson has been trying to pin down but could not find a trail leading to their doorsteps.

    I will only believe Jun Lozada if he can file a case in court against FG who is not immune from lawsuits unlike the President. Present all evidences and not mere “dakdak” here and “dakdak” there for for all gullible people to believe!

    Jun Lozada works for JDV before. He is the go-to-guy of JDV whenever its about Chinese projects. With the NBN deal starting, the young De Venecia assigned Jun Lozada to work things out so that they can bag the project. However, Abalos who is retiring soon, had an idea that he can get a lot of money before he leaves the public office with this NBN deal. Since he knows a lot about the manipulation in the election, he easily blackmailed the first family to grant him to take over the NBN deal. Facts: GMA at first wanted a BOT for the proj. which is really favorable for the young De Venecia… But since Abalos came in to the picture, it became a govt subsidy. and that you know why already… So during these times, there where talks between the two parties, Abalos and De Venecia with Jun as frontman to NEDA and ZTE people but it became a failure. After the falling out, it then became a bitter part for the De Venecias, particularly to Joey and to his man in action, Jun.

    So what happened next, the ploy to destroy the Arroyos. Jun Lozada acting so clean that almost every Filipino believes in him. But the real thing is that, Jun Lozada and Joey already had a meeting with the oppostion, (Ping, Jambo) and had planned every single step they need to do to make this whole telenovela a hit to the Filipino people.

    If we dig deeper, Sen. Santiago is right. “Kickback lang ang pinag aawayan nila”… If we dig deeper, we may see the real Jun Lozada… How can someone with so many death threats seen touring our country? Sorry Mr. Jun, but for me the show is over…

    And to the government, you take responsibility of whats happening now in our country… We, Filipino people deserves better than this…
