Senator Antonio Trillanes IV shared his interest in pursuing a teaching post after his 12-year stint in the Senate that ends this year.
On Thursday, January 17, Trillanes stated that he believed that he can share many lessons to the youth.
“I would like to believe marami naman tayo mashi-share sa kabataan, maituturo sa kanila.”
He then called his Senate period a “worthwhile experience” and that he has learned something about the process and internal dynamics of lawmaking.

“Merong frustrating moments, meron ding rewarding moments kapag nakapasa ka ng batas na ramdam ng taumbayan but most of the time parang di sensational ang institutional reforms.
“Yung realization, marami pang pwedeng gawin, dito as a senator, peculiar vantage point of seeing the inner part of the government and you have access to a pool of resources to come up with solution. [It’s a] very worthwhile experience.”

When asked if he would go back to politics in the future, he answered, “I don’t see it happening but we will see how it goes kung saan tayo dalhin ng tadhana.”
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV once again challenged President Rodrigo Duterte to undergo drug test after the latter’s joke about taking Marijuana in order to wake him up in between duties as the Commander-in-Chief of the Philippines.
Trillanes said that the President was just desperate to contain the damage of his admission about his supposed Marijuana use by saying his usual excuse of it being humorous.
“Too late! Bistado na s’ya na isa rin pala siyang durugista. Now, if he really wants to clear himself, I am again calling on him to take a drug test,” the senator said in a press statement.
The Malacañang responded and rebuffed his dare. Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo asked Trillanes to take the drug test instead.
“Hindi niya [Duterte] papatulan ‘yun. Nagtataka nga ako ba’t pinapatulan ninyo siya.
“Look at this President. Malakas. Sinasabi naman niya sa atin kung anong deperensiya niya.”
Trillanes’ most recent drug test was in July. It showed negative results in the use of all five illegal substances.
On Monday, Duterte mentioned that he used Marijuana to keep himself awake in the middle of his busy schedule. He later clarified that he was just joking and that was just his way of lightening up the mood.
After former Senator Bong Revilla has been acquitted from his plunder case, a Davao City judge has issued a warrant of arrest against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV over the criminal case–Libel.
It was filed by President Rodrigo Duterte‘s son and former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte.
Judge Melinda Alconcel Dayanghirang of the Regional Trial Court Branch 54 ordered law enforcement agencies, like the Criminal Detection and Investigation Group (CIDG) to bring Trillanes before her so that he can be “dealt with according to law”.
Although arrested, Trillanes is allowed to post bail. The judge said that he should be presented to her within 10 days upon the release of the warrant arrest copy.
The bail bond is prescribed with a Php24,000 and the senator can deposit it to any office of the or municipal and city treasurers office. He should furnish her with the certificate of deposit.
Trillanes can also post bail in any court upon the approval of the judge who has jurisdiction over the location he would be held in.
Paolo Duterte has accused the senator of “false, baseless, and unfounded” claims regarding him and his brother-in-law Maneses Carpio, demanded money from ride sharing company, Uber.
Carpio has also previously sued Trillanes for libel with damages over his claims that they were involved with the mentioned extortion.

Actor Aga Muhlach called out Senator Antonio Trillanes III in his recent guesting in ABS-CBN’s Gandang Gabi Vice.
In the segment Tanong Mo Mukha Mo, the senator’s face appeared on screen. At first Muhlach was hesitant to say something, but a few moments later, he urged the politician to help the administration instead of criticizing President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Nakakapagod na, Ano ba gusto mo mangyari, Parang nag eenjoy ka nalang jan, Tumulong ka nalang”.
He also said that Trillanes always makes an issue about whoever the president is even if the latter is just doing his job.
“Kahit sinong presidente nalang umuupo sinisiraan. Ito ginagawa naman ng presidente natin yung ginagawa niya. Tumulong na lang sana.
“Stop, collaborate and Listen.”
Bea Alonzo, who was also a guest during the episode, also asked the same question to the Senator. The pair is currently promoting their movie First Love directed by Paul Soriano.
The video of the segment has now been deleted from ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube Channel.

Netizen and cinematographer Emir Kahn Bautista shared the truth behind Philippine Nurses Association‘s three-day National Annual Convention 2018.
He attached photos that show that there is barely space for moving. But despite the crowded and tight spacing between tables and chairs, there are still participants who found it difficult to find their own place, which resulted to many of them sitting on the floor.
The participants were said to have paid ₱5,300 just to attend the said convention. He added that there were even nurses that came from as far as Zamboanga just to go to the event in Ortigas.
Bautista then mentioned that he hopes the Republic Act 10912, or the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Law be abolished. The law requires professionals to earn units for the renewal of their Professional Identification card, and as the convention gives one 35 units, nurses were convinced to attend and pay the large sum of money.
A participant said that she had no choice but to go because she needs to renew her ID soon.
GUSTO NYONG MAKITA KALAGAYAN NG NURSES NGAYON?
Wala na akong pakialam kung pula o dilaw ka. Tulungan nyo naman mga nurses ko. Ipaabot nyo to San mga congressman at senador na tatakbo. Lahat ng magpapaabolish ng CPD iboboto ko.
Eto ang dahilan kug bakit kailangan I abolish ang CPD.
P5,300 for 3 days seminar for 35units CPD?.
As far as Zamboanga city umattend sa Ortigas ngayon.
5,300 x x,ooo of participants.
Health is a human right:Ensuring, Access, investment and economic growth” 35 units for P5,300.
After Bautista’s post went viral, members of the PNA has reached out to him, saying that they are seeking for his forgiveness.
UPDATE from the PNA!.
We would like to thank our PNA board of members for reaching out to us.
Message from one of the Boards.
I humbly seek your forgiveness and understanding for what happened yesterday. I, as a member of the Board of Governors for PNA CAR, perfectly understand your sentiments and feelings. I can not argue with that. I respect for that.
We at the PNA promise to do better next year. We can not undo what transpired this year, thus this apology.
Kudos to PNA.
Bill to abolish the CPD Law.
Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto is seeking to abolish the Republic Act 10912, or the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Law which he said, hinders the growth of the country’s professionals.
Recto expressed professionals from various disciplines, particularly, teachers and nurses, are protesting the supposed difficulties in getting CPD credits and in having their licenses renewed.
“Compulsory requirements of dubious value like CPD go against this trend.
“Pulling the plug on the CPD experiment should give all of us time to ponder other means of improving professional competence without the coercive force of the CPD model.”
He said that he hopes that the government would find a better system for professional development “without the disruptions, inconveniences, and the high expenses the present one causes.”

On Thursday, September 27, President Rodrigo Duterte stated that his only sins are the extrajudicial killings.
In a speech in Malacañang, he asked everyone about their sins before making the remark.
“Ako, I will talk to a political exercise now. What are your sins? Ako? Sabi ko nga sa military, ano kasalanan ko? Nagnakaw ba ako dyan ni piso? Did I prosecute na pinakulong ko? Ang kasalanan ko lang, yung mga extra-judicial killings.”
Around 4,854 alleged drug suspects have been killed in the police’s anti-drug operations.
A few days ago, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV stated that the President will also go through the process of bailing for an arrest as there will come a time that he will pay for his sins.
“Kung maililigpit mo man ako, meron at merong papalit sa akin, at sa dakong huli ikaw rin ay matatalo at haharapin mo ‘yung mga kasalanang ginawa mo.”
Palace and Panelo defend.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque immediately defended President Duterte’s words, saying that he was “not serious” about what he said.
“Alam mo naman si Presidente, ano. Hindi na naman iyan seryoso ‘no… I don’t think na ang konteksto niyan ay literal.”
On the other hand, Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo said that the statement was just misinterpreted.
“Ang sinasabi niya lang, iyan lang ang issue niyo sa akin, EJK. Ang isyu niyo lang sakin bilang presidente ng bansa ay extrajudicial killing.
“It’s a matter of language. He’s a Visayan, he’s not a Manileño, he’s not Tagalog.”
Panelo added that the misinterpretation is a way for the critics to “put [Duterte] in bad light.”
“You have to take everything in context in reference to his previous statements, in reference to his SONA speech.
“He said he declares war [on drugs], but there will be hell to pay for abusive police officers.
“They’ll be using everything and anything that will put him in bad light. That is the job of critics, that is the job of detractors.”

According to the September 2018 Pulse Asia Survey released on September 25, majority of Filipinos trust Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto III and approve of his performance.
Sotto obtained the second highest approval and trust ratings, only falling behind President Rodrigo Duterte himself.
The survey showed 73% of respondents approve of Sotto’s performance, while 6% do not. 21% are still undecided. In June 2018, former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III got a 72% approval rating.
He also got the trust of the majority of respondents. 66% of the respondents say that they have “big trust” in him, 27% are undecided, and 6% have “small or no trust.”
Sotto got the lowest distrust rating among the top 5 national officials, including President Duterte, Vice President Leni Robredo, House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and Acting Supreme Court Chief Justice Antonio Carpio. Adding to that, he also received the majority’s approval and trust rating scores across all geographic areas and socio economic groups.
The Pulse Asia survey was conducted from September 1 to 7. It included face-to-face interviews and a multistage probability sample of 1,800 registered voters.
It was done during the President’s official visit to Israel and Jordan. It also coincided with the issuance of Proclamation 572 ordering the revocation of opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s amnesty, the issue regarding rice shortage, the 6.4% inflation rate, and the Senate blue ribbon committee hearings regarding the Tulfo siblings’ advertisement controversy.
A priest wished during mass that President Rodrigo Duterte would fall sick.
At the Mass held for Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, the priest named Father Noel Gatchalian joked during the homily that he prayed for the President to get sick.
He said, “Noon pong marami nang kaguluhan ang nangyayari, na winawalanghiya pati ang ating relihiyon, binabastos pati ang ating Diyos, sinasabi ng ating Simbahan na magdasal. Sabi ko o sige magdasal, kaya pinagdasal ko na magkasakit si Digong.
“Diba sabi niya pagod na siya? Edi magpahinga muna siya.”
The Mass was held outside Trillanes’ office in the senate. Father Gatchalian added that it is really one of his many prayers to God.
“Ang totoo po niyan, isa lang iyan sa mga dalangin ko. Marami pa tayong [ibang panalangin], sapagkat kahit na tayo ay tahimik ay naghihintay lang tayo ng mga pagkakataon.”
“Patawarin sana ng Panginoon”
Special Assistant to the President Bong Go couldn’t help but react to what he deemed an outrageous wish.
In a message to reporters, he said that he hopes that God would forgive Father Gatchalian who prayed for President Duterte to get sick.
“Patawarin sana ang pari ng Panginoon”
Trillanes has been staying at his office in the Senate since Tuesday after Duterte ordered his arrest.

Aika Robedo, Vice President Leni Robredo‘s eldest daughter, chided the reasons behind President Duterte’s move to rescind the amnesty granted to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV by former President Noynoy Aquino.
In her tweet, Aika re-posted a message that she claims to have seen on Facebook. It seems to be questioning if the government would consider a dead person alive if his death certificate has gone missing.
“Seen in my Facebook feed this morning: “Kapag nawala ba ‘yung death certificate sa Civil Registrar, ibig ba sabihin buhay ka pa?” Mismo. Magandang umaga.”
The tweet earned thousands of responses on Twitter. Most of them, criticisms from supporters of the President.
@MarkAnthonyDCL1 tweeted Aika a sarcastic response.
Nawala? Para bang balota na binasa? Ganyan siguro talaga sa CamSur, nawawala ang mga dokumento sa Civil Registry. Malamang kaya nawala ang death certificate sinadya para makaboto…
Another netizen called her “shallow” and “stupid”.
Napakababaw ng logic mo iha. Mana ka rin sa ina mong napaka tanga at sagad sa kabobohan. #FakeVP
@MontyFerandez3 claimed that their votes went missing and asked Aika if that means that they voted for her mother.
Boto nga namin nawala so it means Nanay mo binoto namin? wow magic??? kahit mag photo ops pa kyo lagi nagdadasal di mababago ang katotohanan na Nagnakaw kayo ng boto. 😂
@Yoyamomi hoped for the late Jesse Robredo‘s death certificate to go missing.
Sana nga iwala na rin nila death cert ng dad mo para buhay at kasama pa natin sya 😊
@aileenasami questioned Aika’s education in Harvard
Is that what they teach in Harvard? 25% logic?🤣
Another netizen connected the tweet to the alleged cheating during the elections.
Kapag ba may nagreklamo sa PET tungkol sa resulta ng eleksyon, ibig ba sabihin mayroong pandaraya na nangyari?
Antonio Vasquez also said that even if the government has Trillanes’ amnesty records, it doesn’t mean that he’s already qualified to receive amnesty.
Yun lang ba ang basehan dun?! Mag isip ka naman! Kaya nga hinahanapan ng kopya si Trillanes! Isa pa, wala siyang admission of guilt which is a requisite for amnesty! Sayang ka iha!
Robredo has yet to respond to the criticisms against her and her mother.
Actor Robin Padilla dared Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Wednesday to come out of the Senate building, where he has been staying to avoid arrest after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered to void his amnesty.
Padilla urged Trillanes to face the “real court.”
“Ako may trabaho din ako, di ako makapagtrabaho eh kasi gusto ko makita ‘yung katapangan mo (Trillanes) na haharapin mo ‘yung kaso sayo.
“Humarap ka naman sa totoong korte.
“Senador ka pero nagtatago ka. Nakikipagtaguan ka sa batas, eh parang bata ka nga.”
In an ambush interview, Trillaes was asked about Padilla’s message. The senator asked the reporter to repeat the actor’s words and admitted that he didn’t know what to react and thought that it was immature.
“Pano ba ko magrereact? So papansinin ko siya ganon? Ayan na, binigyan ko na siya ng two seconds.
“Parang bata. It’s too petty.
“We’re dealing with national problems here tapos you have immature people like that.”
Trillanes has sought custody in the Senate building from Tuesday, September 4, after the announcement that his amnesty has been revoked.
Even though police have been deployed outside the Senate building, they are prevented from making arrests inside the premises of the Senate.
