The third Senate hearing of extrajudicial killings turns into a frenzy because of the disclosure of the witness, Edgar Matobato. He confessed he was part of the so-called Davao Death Squad and pointed out that President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the killings over 1,000 people while he's still the mayor of Davao City.
A Facebook post of Mark Lopez gone viral in just 2 hours. It already generated 1,691 shares and 2,000 likes.
Mr. Lopez post highlighted the statement made by the witness. He said that this investigation purposed was to pin down President Duterte and this is the plan B of the Liberal Party.
He said at first the statements were impressive but suddenly, he was lose track and his answers became inconsistent.
Even De Lima acted like a lawyer to the witness and other LP were restless, trying their best to rescue the Lady senator.
He stated that the opponents will 'throw everything' just to stain Duterte's reputation.
On the latter part, Lopez slammed the LP: "The thing is, like their own witness, they don't have the credibility to endear themselves to the people. Their biggest dilemma is their delusion."
THE DILEMMA OF LEILA DE LIMA
What we witnessed in today's senate circus a.k.a committee on justice investigation into EJKs is not only a farce but a national shame of epic proportion.
There is nothing in this investigation that will aid any legislation whatsoever.
This is a witch hunt and a forum to bring down a legitimate presidency. If there is indeed a plan B, this is it. It is no longer a sinister plot behind closed doors. It is an ouster move out in the open.
And today's hearing is the lowest of the lows, where a supposed member of the dreaded Davao Death Squad would bring life to a myth, and would personally attest to Rodrigo Roa Duterte as the man behind it all.
Edgar Matobato confessed to killing people allegedly on orders of Duterte, and even that of his son Paolo. He claimed to be a member of DDS, and he knows where the bodies were slain and buried, or fed to crocodiles.
At first, he was impressive as he was explosive in revealing the dastardly acts he committed in the name of Digong.
Social media went into a frenzy.
But by noon time, Matobato's fantastic claims suddenly lost steam under a barrage of clever questioning. His story suddenly collapsed under the sheer number of loopholes and yarn that would dislodge Aesop's Fables as the all time great in fictional storytelling.
By then, even Leila De Lima suddenly forgot that she was supposed to be an objective chair of a committee, and went about lawyering for Matobato. Adding to the confusion were the silly but brazen attempts of Trillanes and Pangilinan to come to her rescue.
With the witness suddenly developing amnesia and providing free advertising to MacDonalds, it became clear that De Lima was in this solely for a demolition job.
In her haste to pin down Duterte, she can't even coach Matobato properly, to point that the witness even declared where he went into hiding, of all places the favorite of Leila de Lima which is Pangasinan, home of her driver sweet lover Ronnie Dayan.
Senator De Lima and perhaps the LP are really so desperate to put a crack on the solid foundation of Duterte's presidency because it seems nothing will really stick to make the people become sick and tired of Digong.
Three months passing by so fast, and nothing that De5 and company has exposed, plotted or spun can dampen or even dent the Duterte juggernaut. Even the Leni Robredo adventures that is being aided by tremendous media mileage is not working.
This is the dilemma of De Lima and her LP cohorts. As the days go by, their own betrayal of public trust during their heyday are now slowly creeping into our consciousness, and they no longer can keep the lid on their incompetence, their indifference, and their collusion with criminals that had this country teetering on the brink of being a narco-state.
This is why they are now desperate to throw everything, including the MacDonalds kitchen sink and fryer to Digong.
They know that their window to plan B is slowly fading fast.
The thing is, like their own witness, they don't have the credibility to endear themselves to the people.
Their biggest dilemma is their delusion.
