Santiago a better ‘presidentiable’

Feisty Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago should again take a crack at the presidency of the Philippines in 2016, as she said, if she fully recovers from her bout with lung cancer before the year ends (“Miriam as presidential candidate ticks off possible running mates,” Front Page, 9/11/14).

PDI scored for columnist’s uncalled-for comment

I am writing because I am upset and angry that the Inquirer published an article written by Dr. Antonio Montalvan (“Coming soon: Miriam vs Benhur,” Opinion, 5/19/14) that was obviously written to discredit the Abads and, more so, Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago. Only a small portion of the article talked about Santiago, but the title was about her and Benhur Luy! Didn’t Mr. Montalvan read the news that Miriam was not on any list? Both Luy’s current and former lawyers have confirmed this.

Coming soon: Miriam vs Benhur

Locals told us that no visit to Batanes should ever omit a courtesy call on Congresswoman Dina. That sounded more like a warning.

The CAB and the emperor’s new clothes

Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago is right. The peace agreement between the Aquino administration and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front over a piece of territory they call the Bangsamoro is illegal. No matter how hard President Aquino tries, he cannot hide the fact that the deal crafted under his direction runs afoul of our fundamental law. The constitutional infirmities stick out like a sore thumb.

Obama-induced apathy for our Constitution?

By

Why has public debate so glaringly ignored the objection that the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (Edca) with the United States is potentially unconstitutional because it must first be ratified by our Senate as a treaty? This issue was raised by no less than Senate President Franklin Drilon and Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, two of our most highly respected lawyers.
