On Ramos plotting against GMA

Anakpawis Representtaive Crispin Beltran said that the latest US intelligence report pinpointing former president Gen.Fidel Ramos to a coul plot aimed at removing the illegitimate incumbent Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was not surprising. He said that Ramos does have the motives and the means to push for a military take-over and have himself installed in Malacanang.

“Ramos is a tricky power player, adept at subtly hiding his own political intentions and motives. His rescue of Macapagal-Arroyo in July could only have been a delaying tactic so he could buy more time not for Macapagal-Arroyo but for himself as he also prepares his own plans to grab leadership. There’s nothing we can put pass Ramos,” he said.

The veteran labor leader turned legislator that at this juncture, it was clear that Macapagal-Arroyo was desperately dependent on Ramos. “Without Ramos’ support, it’s highly likely that Macapagal-Arroyo’s severely weakened presidency would’ve collapsed. Ramos is the one providing the backbone to Macapagal-Arroyo. Now, with the expose that Ramos might well be the central plotter against Macapagal-Arroyo, it would be interesting to see if there will be a shift in the relationship between Arroyo and her declared mentor Ramos.”

On Jovito Palparan’s monstrosities

“Brig. Gen. Jovito Palparan is a lunatic. He’s cast in the same mold as the Hitler and Jack the Ripper. There’s something terribly, psychologically wrong with this man masquerading as an officer and gentleman. His continued attacks against political activists and his campaign of mass murder puts him in the same league as the most brutal monsters in history,” Beltran said.

“Palparan has not made a single categorical denial that he condones and even applauds the relentless attacks against the members of progressive partylists and people’s organizations. All circumstances and accounts point towards his accountability for the brutal killing of activists in Central Luzon and previously in Eastern Visayas and Southern Tagalog. TheMacapagal-Arroyo administration is using him and his insane blood thirst to wreak death and destruction against unarmed civilians who are vocal in their opposition against the corrupt, illegitimate and politically repressive government.”

The activist solon said that Palparan should be immediately pulled out of the military service and taken to a mental institution. “It’s a vicious, unforgivable crime against humanity the Macapagal-Arroyo government is committing – letting loose such a monster among the civilian populace.”

Beltran slammed the statements of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) that the New People’s Army was behind the murder of political activists including Hacienda Luisita union president Ric Ramos.

“The stupidity and lack of logic of the AFP is yet again in play. There is no way that the NPA could be behind this. Haven’t the AFP and the PNP even accused the NPA of being supporters of the Hacienda Luisita strike, and that the workers in the Hacienda are already members of the NPA? Now they’re saying that it’s the NPA who killed a much-loved, much respected labor leader. The very idea is preposterous and outrageous.”#
