Palace/DOH investigate Novaliches District Hospital (QC Mayor Joy Belmonte is worst NCR CEO, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is best)

  1. PhilHealth Double Filing Case 2. Baby Switching 3. Expiring HIV and Drug Testing Kits 4. Unutilized Machines worth PHP 15 million pesos

qc joy sb hb

The Presidential Complaint Center endorsed a letter from Novaliches District Hospital employees alleging breach of warranties in a PhilHealth double filing case, a civil case involving alleged baby switching, misuse of funds of the Local Government in the purchase of laboratory machines that have remained unused and irregularity in the acquisition but non-utilization of HIV and Drug Testing Kits. The Department of Health would be conducting the investigation on the LGU owned NDH.

The then incoming Mayor of Quezon City Joy Belmonte was informed of the complaints against the incoming Medical Director (a certain Dr. Aldana) but the problematic physician was appointed nonetheless.  Said physician on his first day of office terminated 22 contract of service employees and consultants of NDH. Mayor Belmonte came out on record that there would be no firing, termination or non-renewal of contracts of city employees which contradicted the action of the medical director who caused the separation from service of the NDH personnel. Significantly, the power to fire and hire for the city is vested upon the mayor so the medical director acted without authority to do so.  Seven weeks after the easing out of the NDH employees, and even after the Office of the President ordered an investigation on the alleged illegal termination, the concerned employees remain unemployed.


Malacanang investigates Quezon City for Illegal Termination of employees and consultants

The Office of President Duterte thru the Office of Executive Secretary Medialdea, on July 5, 2019, endorsed for evaluation and appropriate action the complaints of several concerned employees of the Novaliches District Hospital, managed by the local government unit of Quezon City.

Fifteen COS (contract of service) employees and seven consultants were unceremoniously informed on July 1, 2019 that their contracts would no longer be renewed. July 1 was the first day of office of senators, representatives, governors, vice-governors, provincial board members, mayors, vice mayors and councilors. In Quezon City, Mayor Joy Belmonte assumed office and her appointed Novaliches District Hospital Medical Director, with the name of a certain Doctor Aldana, also on his first day to return to that position, promptly issued walking papers to the twenty-two. Said memorandum of the Medical Director was in direct conflict to the pronouncement of the new mayor that no contract of service would be terminated.

Analysis: The Office of the Mayor of Quezon City proclaimed that it has the sole prerogative of hiring and firing as far as city employees are concerned. If that is the case, then on whose authority did the Novaliches District Hospital Medical Director issue the termination memorandum? A grave abuse of authority/discretion case against the Medical Director is a legal option available to the aggrieved parties. Aside from that, how come it has taken weeks to start an investigation to the detriment of hospital patients and services? In the same span of time the City of Manila has progressed by leaps and bounds under the able leadership of new Mayor Isko Moreno. On the other hand, Quezon City is being left behind on the garbage clearing and road obstruction (illegally parked vehicles and vendors taking over sidewalks and streets) fronts.

MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Appointments (CA) on Wednesday, May 3, rejected the ad interim appointment of Environment Secretary Gina Lopez after 3 confirmation hearings.

Rejection of a presidential appointee by the CA is rare in Philippine history. Once rejected by the CA, an appointee cannot be reappointed, unlike when the body bypasses an appointment.

It is also the CA’s second rejection of a Cabinet secretary appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte. The first was former Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr.

The back-to-back rejections are unprecedented.

During her first two confirmation hearings in March, lawmakers quizzed the passionate Lopez about her technical knowledge of the job as environment secretary.

This, after her controversial orders in February to close down or suspend mining operations in the country, and to cancel mineral production sharing agreements.

She also required suspended mining companies to give P2 million for every hectare of farmland affected by their activities, but this order she said is “almost moot and academic” because of the stay of execution issued by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

More recently, Lopez banned “prospective” open-pit mines in the country – a move questioned by the mining industry for excluding quarrying. Taysan, Batangas once it secures a permit from the provincial government.

But despite the controversial issues hurled against Lopez, President Rodrigo Duterte has thrown his support for her until the very end, even reappointing her twice after she was bypassed by the CA.

During Lopez’s last confirmation hearing on Tuesday, May 2, most of the questions were on her standards as environment secretary, and the legal basis of her recent decisions. –

QC politics – Mayor fires first shot for 2022 due to her own poor performance

qc joy sb hb

Quezon City Mayor Joy CONVENIENTLY FORGOT that during the Bistek Admininistration, most of the top JUICY positions in the city were (and still are) manned by loyalists of Sonny Belmonte, her father (the real powerhouse in QC even during the Bistek Administration), who was the mayor prior to Bautista. The newly elected QC mayor is currently suffering from a public relations DISASTER mainly to her being compared to the rock star new mayor of the city of Manila, Isko Moreno. She only has herself to blame for her infamous statement that she is running a MARATHON to explain her SLOW START in clearing garbage, illegally parked vehicles and vendors occupying sidewalks and streets as she was reacting to Mayor Moreno working quickly, decisively and effectively. Mayor Joy should also know that not only her political opponents in the last elections are against her since a large number of those who actually voted for her are DISAPPOINTED, DISMAYED and FRUSTRATED at her performance in office. In truth, pointing to Bistek as her tormentor only allows those against her to gravitate towards Herbert who could be her opponent in the mayoralty race in 2022 or he can possibly play KINGMAKER for someone else. By firing a shot across the bow too early in the game, Mayor Belmonte telegraphs her INSECURITY and possibly her incompetence and inability to take the initiative and actually prove to her constituents, including her detractors, that she was really the BEST CHOICE among the candidates. Unfortunately, with this latest interview, she once again demonstrated that she can TALK much more than she can DO (again, in comparison to Isko who keeps on doing with less talk). The DILAWAN (the yellow color of the Aquino Administration), DYNASTY (Belmonte family members and in-law in appointed and elected positions in QC) and BALIMBING (turncoat) issues hound the mayor but they could have been easily forgotten had she started on the right foot on day 1, July 1, 2019. Unfortunately, she, figuratively, is often caught with her FOOT in her MOUTH.



Bistek backed my opponent, says Joy Belmonte

GMA news
August 14, 2019  

Running mates when they first ran together for the top local positions in Quezon City in 2010, Herbert Bautista and Joy Belmonte’s political partnership gradually fell apart with the mayor supporting his vice mayor’s opponent in the last elections.

In an interview on “Bawal ang Pasaway kay Mareng Winnie”, the incumbent Mayor Joy Belmonte cited differences  in governance styles as the reason for the political split with the former local chief executive.

Belmonte said she eventually felt left out while serving as Bautista’s vice mayor.

“Sa unang termino po namin ni Mayor Herbert Bautista, tingin ko I was in because we were running mates,” Belmonte said.

“Kaya lang habang tumagal ang panahon, napansin po namin na magkaiba ang aming pananaw patungkol po sa aming mga trabaho,” she added.

“Kadulu-duluhan naghiwalay na kami, hindi na po ako ang kaniyang sinuportahan bilang mayor ng lungsod ng Quezon,” Belmonte said.

Asked who Bautista backed in the last elections, Belmonte said, “My opponent.”

While she didn’t name the other candidate Bautista supported, it was former Quezon City Representative Bingbong Crisologo who placed second in the 2019 polls.

Belmonte said there were moves inside city hall against her re-election in 2022.

“Siguro yung predecessor ko may mga tao pa siya na nandito na permanent na I was willing to work with because I’m not a vindictive person… pero baka ‘yung agenda nila ay pabagsakin ako, to make me look bad. There are moves for me to be a one-term mayor,” Belmonte said.

Still, Belmonte said that it was actually Bautista—not her father former Speaker Feliciano Belmonte—who encouraged her to enter the politics.

“It was Mayor Bautista that asked me to join. I was actually a teacher at the University of the Philippines. At that time, my father and Mayor Bautista were very close. Mayor Bautista was the vice mayor of my father for nine years,” Belmonte said.

“Mayor Bautista asked me to run with him because he thought it would help him to have a Belmonte as a running mate,” she added. —NB, GMA News



Manila Best – Moreno 87%, Quezon City Worst – Belmonte 65%, bagsak, DILAW dynasty kasi

Completing one month in office as newly elected city chief executives, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno took the country by storm by saying the right words and doing the right things. Clearing sidewalks and streets of garbage, vendors and improperly parked vehicles surprised the public in the speed with which the actions were done. In the adjacent Quezon City, Mayor Joy Belmonte looked tentative, indecisive and did a lot of convoluted talking trying to rationalize, making excuses and dilly-dallying instead of just doing what has to be done in accordance with the law.

Based on netizen reactions, comments and observations, Belmonte seems to have a credibility problem being viewed derisively as a Trapo (traditional politician) in spite of her relatively young age. It does not help that she comes from a family that has been in control of the city for decades and having many of her relatives in elected (congressman, councilors) and appointed (brother-in-law, cousin) positions. At a time when the ERAP dynasty fell in the national (two of his sons lost their senator run) and local (cities of Manila and San Juan) levels plus losses by many other dynasties in the whole country, the electorate seems to be weighing the negative effect of relatives managing cities and the country for decades.

3 nabbed over alleged extort try on Bong Go, Jolo Revilla

August 1, 2019

Three men who allegedly posed as a district representative and extorted money from a local government official were arrested by operatives of the Philippine National Police-Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) in Malabon City.

Police on Thursday identified the suspects as Dennis Jose Borbon, 24; Edgar Paulo Bularan, 30; and Menard Bassa, 20. Borbon and Bularan were nabbed on Wednesday while Bassa was arrested in a separate entrapment operation on Tuesday in Camarines Sur.

According to authorities, the suspects posed as Camarines Sur 4th District Representative Arnulf Fuentebella and tried to extort money from Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla.

Fuentebella and Revilla asked for assistance from the operatives of PNP-ACG.

Police said one of the suspects called Revilla and introduced himself as Fuentebella. Citing information from Revilla, police said the caller claimed that he lost his wallet while on a travel going to Palawan and asked for P25,000.

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go was also supposed to be victimized by the suspects but the senator called Fuentebella to verify if he was really asking for money.

Seized from Borbon and Bularan were the following: one Oppo cellphone, one Starmobile cellphone, one micro sim card, 3 Globe prepaid  load cards, one Metro Bank debit card, four GCash card, one Commission on Elections (Comelec) identification card, one SM Advantage card, one Mineski Infinity card and one Happy Plus card.

The suspects will be facing charges for violating Section 4 (b) (3) of Republic Act 10175 (Identity Theft) and Article 315 Revised Penal Code (Estafa) in relation to Section 6 of RA 10175. —KBK, GMA News


‘Don’t believe a scammer’: Bam Aquino denies hiring ‘blogger’ to discredit Bong Go

Aika Rey, Rappler

August 01, 2019

‘Puwede ba tigilan niya ako sa mga kalokohan niya?’ former senator Antonio Trillanes IV tells Senator Bong Go, who also accused him of a ‘conspiracy’ against administration bets in the May polls based on the say-so of an alleged scammer

MANILA, Philippines – Former senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV on Thursday, August 1, denied hiring an alleged scammer for an online smear campaign against administration candidates in the recent elections.

Aquino was reacting to the claim of Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, who based his allegation on the say-so of alleged scammers police presented to the media on Thursday.

The alleged scammers – Dennis Borbon and Edgar Buluran – were arrested for posing as a congressman to solicit thousands of pesos from lawmakers and a vice governor.

In text message to Rappler, Aquino said that Borbon apparently wanted to change the narrative of the story to divert attention away from his crime.

“Kulang sa pansin itong si Borbon at malinaw na iniiba ang kuwento para makalimutan ang mga krimeng nagawa niya. Wala tayong kinalaman sa kanya,”Aquino said.

(Borbon wants attention and it’s clear that he’s trying to change the story so that people will forget the crimes he committed. We don’t have anything to do with him.)

During the briefing on Thursday morning, Go alleged that Aquino and former senator Antonio Trillanes IV were involved in Borbon’s “demolition job” against administration bets in the May elections.

Borbon then volunteered the information that he was an “anti-administration” blogger and claimed that he was hired by the chief of staff of Aquino to discredit Go and their allies.

He also alleged that he rendered his services to former Magdalo congressman and defeated opposition senatorial bet Gary Alejano.

Aquino warned against believing scammers.

“Huwag sana nating paniwalaan ang mga tao gaya ni Borbon na manloloko at nakasangkot sa mga scam (Let’s not believe people like Borbon that is a fraud and has been part of a scam),” Aquino said.

Like Aquino, Alejano also denied hiring Borbon, saying that his entire social media campaign was managed by professional volunteers. He said that his general rule is to “never resort to smear campaign”.

“May our government officials be more responsible in releasing information to the public especially if their source is a scammer,” Alejano said.

Meanwhile, Trillanes said that Go should stop hatching new conspiracies against him.

“Puwede ba tigilan niya ako sa mga kalokohan niya? Wala akong pakialam sa kanya (Can he spare me from his antics? I don’t care about him),” Trillanes said.

Since Go had not made a formal complaint based on Borbon’s allegations involving the opposition figures, Philippine National Police spokesman Brigadier General Bernard Banac said the police was not investigating the matter. –
