Cops Asked: Is it OK your superior throw you in jail?

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

I caught the middle of the consultation of the Committee on Public Order and Safety of the House of Representatives on the “PNP Modernization Bill” with hundreds of members of the Philippine National Police held last Thursday in Lingayen, Pangasinan.

Major concerns asked by Congressmen Romy Acop, Sam Pagdilao, and Pol Bataoil, who are not only retired police officials but alumni of the Philippine Military Academy, were the following: "
1)             If active members of the Philippine National Police wanted that their ranking titles be reverted to the then Philippines Constabulary (PC).
It means a Senior Inspector would be called as Captain, etc.
I asked the non officers who were mostly SP04 (Senior Police Officer-4) who were near my seat if they were amenable that a Police Officer 1 would be called “Constable” while an SP04 with red six stripes and a star in the middle will be called MSGT or Master Sergeant just like in the military.  Most of them did not like the idea. “It could not happen because the PNP was created as civilian in nature while those military ranks were created, well, for military purpose,” an SPO4 answered me.
“I thought you don’t want to trade off the SPO-4 or P01 rank because of the word “Officer” attached to it when in the real sense you are not officer like the Inspector or Superintendent (Lieutenant or Lt. Colonel in the military),’ I jocularly told him.

Shocked mailman, wife invited to presidential dinner

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

When I was a kid growing inside the camp of the Philippine Military Academy I wondered why every Saturday or Sunday there were cadets that ate lunch and spent their afternoon at the houses of our military neighbours.
FOSTER SISTER. Getting acquainted, Inah Felice had chit-chat with the
new cadets moments after the foster parent pairing at the military academy.

“They are foster brothers,” a young pretty female neighbour, who became a general in the nurse corps, said to me on the graduating first class cadets.

Many of these cadets came from dirt poor existence in the provinces but catapulted themselves to the elite military school because of their intelligence especially in math in high school.

Some of them married the daughters (their foster sisters) of officers and non officers who stayed at the PMA’s quarters.

One of the cadets, just to stop the inquisitiveness and loquaciousness of a five-year old boy, carried me on his lap to stop my blabber when my lady cousin Darcy invited them inside our house so some of them, who were ilonggos, could met and exchanged pleasantries with my father who hailed from Iloilo City.

“That was Julius Javier (PMA Class 1970 who came from Negros Occidental), he is the goat (the cadet who graduated last in his entire class),” my cousin whispered to me when Javier and classmates bid goodbye.

Q & A: Senatorial Bets Manny Pacquiao and Alma Moreno

After interviewing in the past former president Fidel V. Ramos, former Five-Time Speaker Jose de Venecia, ambassador from other country, 2016 presidential front runner Senator Grace Poe, 2016 vice presidential wannabes and Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Chiz Escudero, and Ferdinand "Bong Bong" Marcos, Jr., I think these two interviews I had with two prominent political figures in the country would be my icing on the cake after I retire in the interesting world of the media in the Philippines to prepare myself in the likewise interesting catering business dahil wala palang masyadong kita dito sa media.

Interviewer Mortz C. Ortigoza (L), who sidelined as boxing anal-list, er,
analyst posterity poses with boxing icon and Congressman Manny
Pacquiao in his training camp in Baguio City. Ortigoza was probably

the only analyst in the Philippines who predicted  on TV and radio a
month of the over hyped Floyd Mayweather vs. Pacquiao that
the American would dominate the Filipino superman. You can read 
that analysis by clicking the link here Historical Photo versus Historical Puta

Here are senatorial candidate Manny Pacquiao, the epitome of patent and scandalous absences in the Philippine Congress and a shoo-in at the respectable pollsters Social Weather Stations and Pulse Asia, and bumbling actress Alma Moreno in a satirical Questions and Answers (Q & A) as they prepare for the 2016 senatorial run. Excerpts:

Q: Champ, ever since there is non-stop killing in your island Mindanao, how’s the peace and order situation there now?

PACQUIAO: Well, you know.... it is bad. Many fish like tuna, dorobo, tilapia, and hito but no order... very bad.

  Q: Totoo po ba Congressman Pacquiao sa isa ninyong madalang na attendance sa House, gusto daw ninyo mag pasa’ ng urgent resolution for the immediate arrest of John Doe at Jane Doe, bakit po?

P: Lagi ko kasi silang nadidinig na kasangkot sa maraming krimen. Minsan madidinig mo na lang sa radyo o TV na ang mga criminals na nahuhuli sa Manila, may isang lalaki at may isang babae na John Doe at Jane Doe na kasama na parang palos  na nakakatakas sa police dragnet. After one hour nasa Zamboanga na naman sila kasangkot ang tatlong pinangalanang Abu Sayaff at isang John Doe at Jane Doe na nambomba. Parang si Kumander Tootpick at Kumander Inday ito, may pagka aswang. Isang oras lang nasa Zamboangga na! May anting-anting ata itong mga hunghang, mas mabilis pa silang lumipad sa PAL o Cebu Pacific.

Q: Pati Anti-Fencing Law gusto ninyo daw buwagin, bakit?

P: Kasi iyong kapit bahay namin sa Saranggani hinuli ng pulis. Mi Prima Facie daw na bumili ng nakaw, ayon kinasuhan ng Anti-Fencing.

Bakit siya kakasuhan ng Anti Fencing? Hindi naman siya tutol sa pagpapader sa palipaligid ng mga kapitbahay niya. Saka hindi naman siya naglalaro ng fencing iyong eskrima ng payat na espada gaya doon sa pelikula ni Zorro. Ang alam noong kapitbahay namin na gamitin iyong espading iyong itak pamputol sa mga tubo doon sa amin at iyong ginamit na pang tuli kay Bobby na kapatid ko.

Q: Nadinig ko pati si Prima Facie gusto din daw ninyo ipahuli sa NBI?

P: Oo, kasi mapa –Manila man o mapa Cebu ako nadidinig ko na kinasuhan si niho at si niha dahil may Prima Facie. Foreigner siguro itong si Prima Facie, masyadong malakas, hindi nila  hinuhuli kahit na sinabi na ng uturidad na kasali si Jose, Pedro, Juan sa krimen dahil kay Prima Facie. Dapat may national manhunt dito kay Prima, mas masahol pa it kay John Doe at Jane Doe.

Q: Pero senator, este, congressman, Prima Facie ay Latin words ho iyan. It means sufficient corroborating evidence appears to exist to support a case.

Here is Alma Moreno, your senator:

Alma calls on the phone Philippine Airlines
Alma: How long is the flight from Manila to Vancouver, Canada?
PAL OPERATOR: Just a minute please.
Alma: Wow ang bilis pala (puts phone down).


Alma in a burger joint
Alma: One burger please
Waiter: With pleasure maam
Alma: No with ketchup

Hay naku di ba may isa pa nga nung time nila tinanung siya ni Inday Badiday "More or less why do you think of the rumor that you and Dolphy are living together"
ALMA: "Ahh well siguro naman more..yes definitely more"
And when the audience laughed she retorts
ALMA: Ay hindi pala more....less pala

Q&A: PH Presidential frontrunner Grace Poe on EDCA and her Citizenship

Political columnist Mortz C. Ortigoza asked this afternoon Philippine presidential front runner  and  Senator Mary Grace Poe on whether she will vote for a military treaty’s Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement between the Philippines and the United States in case the Supreme Court strikes it out as unconstitutional since it fails to have the Senate’s concurrence. Ortigoza inquired too Poe if her re-acquisition of her Philippine Citizenship through Citizenship Retention and Re-acquisition Act of 2003  (Republic Act 9225) is the all encompassing act that shroud her being a natural citizenship and makes her qualified to run as presidential candidate of the Philippines as required by the Constitution. Excerpts:

Interviewer Ortigoza poses with Senator Grace Poe in one of the latter
visits at San Carlos City, the city, of her late father actor Fernando
Poe, Jr.

MORTZ C. ORTIGOZA (MCO): Sa Resolution po ng Senado karamihan gusto nila ang Senado ratify the EDCA (Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement).

GRACE POE (GP): (Pause)

MCO: Iyong executive military agreement between the United States and the Philippine Government sa Resolution ni Senator (Merriam) Santiago that there could be no EDCA without the concurrence of the Senate.

GP: Opo

MCO: Maam, anytime from now ang Supreme Court kasi magde-decision sa Constitutionality ng EDCA.

GP: Opo

MCO: In case i-sustain ng Supreme Court ang petition (by Harry Roque, Former Senators Rene Saguisag and Wigberto Tanada, et al) na unconstitutional the EDCA, pag nilagay sa Senado, are you in favour for EDCA (as we face the incessant Chinese incursion in our territories)?

GP: Para sa amin po kasi kailangan ang Senado na magkaroon ng pagkakataon na i-review ito. Kasama po ito sa trabaho ng Senado - responsibilidad. Ngayon, at ang Senado  rin ang magde-determine kung kailangan talaga ito. O bago itong kasundu-an o ito ba ang karagdagan lang sa dati.

Sa tanung  ninyo, importante na magkaroon ng mga maitutulong sa ating siguridad. Pero kailangan natin rebyuhin iyong proposal bago magbigay ng commitment dito. Kaya nga hinihingi natin iyong sa Senado.

MCO: Former U.E Dean Amado Valdez discussed about three talking points about your citizenship in 2006, 2010, and 2011 when he filed recently at the Comelec for your disqualification in the presidential race.

PH election is for the rich only

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

Because of my tight schedules last Monday I failed to join the media interview in my city with administration presidential bet Mar Roxas when he whistled stops in the cities of Dagupan and San Carlos and Rosales, Pangasinan.

 the market goers at his ala-town hall meeting at the market place of Dagupan City.

Rosales, Pangasinan. MORTZ C. ORTIGOZA

I should be asking him if he is open for the United States to have bases in the Philippines amid the active incursions of China on our islets and reefs at the Spratlys and Scarborough Shoals.
I should be asking him why he was no longer aggressive these days on his TV ads at GMA-7 and ABS-CBN unlike last August 15 to September 15 where he had a daily average of nine infomercials in each of the two giant TV stations where he paid, according to media reports, P257 million to double his pathetic survey numbers from 10% last June to 20% in September 2 to 5 that landed him in No. 2 at Pulse Asia’s poll.
I should be asking him where did he get that huge amount on TV ads and the alleged P100 million billboards his supporters erected all over the country.
Roxas' Statement of Assets & Liabilities (SALN) last year was a net worth of P202, 080, 452. 71. It does not mean that he poured it all in August's TV ads because he had donors too from other sources. I hope Roxas submit to the Comelec those tens of millions of pesos of donations after the election as mandated by the Omnibus Election Code.
I should be asking him that in the 210 KIA utility vehicles bought by the Department of Interior & Local Government, he used to head, for the Philippine National Police, each of the cars cost the government P1.9 million but in reality, according to car experts, the price should be P1, 160,000 only.
“Where did the P740,000 for each cars or P155 million overpriced for the entirety of the purchased go? Why there was no significant discount since the government bought them by bulk?” my posers would be coined like that.
At the ala town hall meeting at the Malimgas  Market I bumped into a Bombo Reporter whose station interviewed earlier Roxas for 30 minutes.
Magkano singil ninyo kada minute, P2000 or P60,000 sa kabu-unan ng trenta minutos?
He told me Roxas paid P50, 000 for that 30 minutes media exposure on the No.1 provincial radio station.
"You should be asking him the tough questions I should be asking him ," I told him.
 But the reporter told me since it was a paid broadcast, the posers have been fed to them by the P.R of the presidential candidate.
I was curious about the P50 thousand for 30 minutes price since early this year, two gubernatorial wannabe in my province have been paying P1000 per minute or P30,000 a day in a 30 minutes bloc time program to promote their candidacy.
With all these huge monies I mentioned, who says Philippine presidential election is for those who have met the following qualifications like: 1. Natural born citizen of the Philippines;2. Registered voter; 3. Able to read and write; 4. At least 40 years of age on the day of election; 5. Resident of the Philippines for at least 10 years immediately preceding the election as what the Philippine Constitution provides?
If you cannot show a respectable sum before the eyes of the Commission on Election to launch an effective campaign nationwide, those basic Constitutional requirements are nothing because the Comelec has the power to strike you out in the race because you are a nuisance candidate as based on your financial capacity.

Historical Photo versus Historical Puta


HISTORICAL PHOTO VS HISTORICAL PUTA. ‘I shook up the world!!!’ Cassius Clay (later named Muhammad Ali) famously screamed after knocking out a world heavy weight champ and KO artist Sonny Liston 51 years from now.
Half a century from the night a brash loquacious kid name Clay beat a terrifying brute of a man for the world heavyweight title and in so doing challenged America to confront its own dark reality
SCREAMED, TOO. PH wannabe boxing commentator Mortz Baby did an Ali famous
scream after an effeminate "nota" hungry Aswang (witch) poised to eat him.

Mortz Baby known as Mortz Ortigoza, a Flip, er, a Filipino, was probably the only Filipino boxing scribe and radio commentator who boldly predicted, against the consternation of his compatriots who thought he was an obnoxious "puta (bitch)", that Floyd Mayweather would defeat Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao in their mega fight last  May 2014. That deplorable tussle saw many fans and bettors walking without their shirts, cursing, and suing Pacquiao for the damage and swindling he had done to them in the sin city called Las Vegas, USA.
Ortigoza did not only predict in his TV and radio interviews from stations all over the Philippines two weeks before the slam bang but challenged everybody to bet against him and Mayweather.
Since he could not find reputable bettors in the educated sectors who can "Walk the Talk" but just content themselves to "Talk the Walk" that Pacquiao would kick the ass of Mayweather, Mortz look for those people, the formidable bobotantes (idiotic voters) and those with the I.Q level of Pacquiao for a wager.
 He criss crossed the "bagsakan (entrepot)" market of Urdaneta City and challenged those Igorot vegetable suppliers and bet against those bangus (milk fish) whole sellers at the wet market of Dagupan City for a six - figure break or make bet.
Mortz, unknown to his wife Miles, brought all the family savings and tuition fees of their kids just to bet for Mayweather that he confidently predicted would school Pacquiao, the senatorial wannabe, in the over hyped fight.
"More than one year after those Fraud, er, Fight of the Century, those Igorots and Bangus merchants have not recovered  until now with their seed monies thanks to their gullibility and ignorance where they believed that the Filipino Superman except Superman's handsome face would be invincible against the scientific and slick American boxing phenomenon," he said shaking his head.
But Mortz baby has another challenged for everybody for a wager. Pacquiao, because of the bobotantes who root for Alma Moreno, Bong Revilla, and Lito Lapid in public office, will win the senatorial race in 2016 in spite of his pathetic four attendance as congressman in the  last year's 16th Congress and his failure, on the rumours I heard, to identify John and Jane Does during his rare congressional debate whether both are siblings or cousins, or just a police character, or whether he would help defend a person sued with Anti-Fencing Law in spite the absence of a destroyed fence.

Here's  Mortz ballyhooed column, a month before the Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight, that bankrupt those simpleton mountain and fish pond people:

ANALYSIS: Pacquiao will lose to Mayweather
By Mortz C. Ortigoza

Many boxing aficionados predicted that Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao’s haymakers would dominate Welterweight pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on May 2 (U.S dateline) mega tussle of the century.
Since a boxer is as good as his last six fights, let’s dissect if Pacquiao whirling dervish southpaw attack has still the superiority or pop to deck out Mayweather.

When Pacquiao fought the “Walking Punching Bag” Brandon Rios and the “Run Away Bride”, er, Boxer Cris Algieri compobox bared Pacquiao unleashes a total punch rates of 790 for Rios and 669 for Algieri in the entire 12 Rounds.
In these two lopsided match ups, Pacquiao looks superb as based on his total punches  just like during those exploding years where he TKO’d (technical knocked out) and KO’d (knocked out) the bigger but dehydrated or struggling in weight Oscar dela Hoya, Antonio Margarito, and Miguel Cotto.
When Manny however fought Juan Manuel Marquez in 2011 and 2012, he unleashes only a total punch of 578
and 256 (before he was knocked out cold at the 6th Round) or an average punches of 48 and 42 per round on their 2011 and 2013  tussles, respectively.
Why the bone lazy punches from the Filipino to the Mexican compared to his bunches of punches on Rios and Algieri?
