G loria Macapagal-Arroyo and her husband, Mike Arroyo, and the members of their cordon sanitaire face indictment in a

United States federal court for stealing American economic-and-military aid, money laundering, mail fraud, etceteras, etc. They have also problems with the People’s Republic of China in connection with the anomalous transactions involving more-than $33-billion in contracts, most of which are frozen due to investigations conducted by the Philippine Senate.

There are reports that as soon as Mrs. Arroyo is no longer the Filipino head of state, some Chinese parties will move to collect the “advance commissions” that they were forced to shell out to certain Filipino officials and their kin during her Administration. Chinese companies were said to have been intimidated to give tons of money to their Philippine intermediaries, if not their Filipino agents, who in turn allegedly turned them over to certain members of the First Family or its cronies and/or lawyers.


The Chinese government is undertaking major reforms and is doing its best to cut down on corruption – both domestically and in the international transactions of its business sector. A vast majority of companies in China has government equity. Eventually, there will be a Chinese equivalent of the “Foreign Corrupt Practices Act” of the United States. The People’s Republic of China wants to become a super-power of a nation and eliminating corruption in its trade and industry is a must if it wishes to accelerate its drive to become the world’s number-one economy. In fact, some Chinese public officials and corporate officers who have been found guilty of corruption have been meted the capital punishment. And the sentence is often carried out in a matter of weeks.


I do not write articles based merely on innuendo. We writers, especially those who have studied in a school of journalism as I did, never write perry, oops, fairy tales. On July 23, 2008, I wrote an exposé that involved the First Gentleman, whom I dubbed satirically and sarcastically as the “Incredible Bulk.” To read my report, please click on this link,

The Arroyo Administration’s “Incredible Bulk”  


This column exposed the anomalous transactions involving the acquisition of certain equipment from the People’s Republic of China by the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA). To date, no Filipino government official or even a member of Congress has attempted to deny and/or refute, and/or investigate, the accusations, as written in this "Unsolicited Advice" column. No other Filipino journalist, whether domiciled in the Philippines or abroad, has picked up my report or wrote a follow-up story. Yes, journalism can sometimes be a profession involving life-or-death scenarios. And many Filipino journalists prefer the status of a live dog instead of a dead lion, as my writer friend, Mar G. de Vera, pointed out in the back cover of my political novel, "One Day in the Life of a Filipino Sonovabitch."


B ut I know the existence of dossiers that would incriminate the Incredible Bulk and his cronies, if not co-conspirators, as stated in the above-mentioned article.


When and if there is a new Philippine President, who will want to prosecute the Arroyo Family and members of their cordon sanitaire of the aforementioned anomalies, I will be happy to provide the complete information that may lead to the prosecution of the Incredible Bulk, Chinese executives and Filipino officials and their kin involved in the highly-scandalous deal with the PPA.


Ergo, the Arroyo Family, its kin, cronies and co-conspirators have the tragic position of choosing between the proverbial Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Ultimately, even Mrs. Arroyo's lapdogs in the House of Representatives will not like to join her as an ex-President on a slow boat to China and its court and prison.


As I have been saying, what I am doing is simply the duty of an ordinary journalist who practices the true tenets of the Fourth Estate. And as some of my readers have been telling me, “Hala bira, hala bira . . .” # # #
