(Topic: Both US and PHL Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude)

UNRAVELING. Little by little the details of what took place that night the Transgender was killed are coming out. The first thing to note is the age of the soldier - 19 years old. At that age its not likely that the soldier has a history of violence against women. The friend of the victim also said the soldier really THOUGHT Laude was a woman. No mention was made whether the true gender of the victim was revealed before they had their interlude. The shock at having been scammed was obviously what motivated the soldier to kill Laude. This is therefore a straight Homicide case. The soldier was provoked into violence by the humiliating truth that he went to bed with a man. The question is, would that be sufficient provocation to get him off the hook?

Prostitution is listed among the crimes some refer to as victimless or consensual crimes, because no one present at the crime is an unwilling participant. “The reason it is legal is the general attitude that prostitution does no harm, has no victims, and is sex among consenting adults.” The following scenario could have led to the death of Laude. Laude and Pemberton agreed to have sex at room # 1. Verbal contract was negotiated, meaning in consideration for $ dollars Laude will have sex with Pemberton. If Laude asked for the consideration amount before sex and Pemberton gave exact amount, prostitution remains victimless at that point. When John found out that Laude’s gender is male, prostitution began to be victimless no more. Pardon my frank analysis.

The Useless Communists. Instead of wasting their energy trying to scrap the VFA and putting the PHL govt. on the spot, why don't these Communists demonstrate to FORCE Binay to testify in the Senate. They can hold placards and make all sorts of noise to put Binay on the spot. But they won't. Why? Because they prefer a thief like Binay to come to power. In their minds that would hasten the death of the Republic. Then they could take over.

19 Years old. That's how young the soldier is. "Young and foolish" he is. Just like all 19 year-olds his hormones must be raging. It is an age where he would take any woman who is available (and even those who are not). If he weren't this young would he have killed the Transgender? Clearly his youth and inexperience made him overlook the possibility that the victim was really a man. Allegedly they just drank iced tea. I find this doubtful. Iced Tea in a Bar? Why not hot milk? This soldier is a 19 year old kid looking to, as they say, "get laid". Well, he did. But with the wrong sex.

News: Another transgender found dead in Tayabas, Quezon. Stabbed 33 times. Unless the motive for this killing is robbery this could be a Hate Crime. Honestly, it's hard to define what a Hate Crime is in the PHL because Filipinos hate a LOT of things. Sometimes I think they even hate THEMSELVES.

I think Jennifer being with Pemberton before midnight can't prove the case that Pemberton killed him. There are many things to consider like envy, robbery, connivance. Who knows one of the other baklas got envious of Jennifer. And because the door was left opened we cannot tell if somebody barged in and stole the money. And, since Jennifer knows those people who came in, she was killed. Why would Pemberton kill Jennifer if US marines are well trained, qualified and mentally fit? Anyway, Justice for Jennifer!

The Inquirer editorial is most stupid. The editorial board that this thing happen.. a private sex encounter that 's gone awry.. this thing could happen in any country. Whatever the military & political agreements the Phil & US have would not control or end crime, sex, prostitution, jealousy, revenge.. these are every human actions that can be minimized but not can be ended.

What are you thinking when you wrote this : "If it's been changed to a female organ by an operation, he is still a male until the law reclassify him as a female. His family and associates may call him Jennifer as a term of endearment" ? Surgery could only go as part to creating an external genitalia but not over haul the entire reproductive system by putting ovaries, uterus, mammary glands, etc.

If the victim Laude revealed his true gender to the soldier beforehand and the soldier just walked away, NO HARM. NO FOUL. If, after revealing his gender the soldier assaults him. Then that is a HATE Crime. But if the soldier committed the violence AFTER he has relieved his passion on what he thought was a woman but was really a man, I don't think it's a Hate Crime. I think it's a reaction to a scam.

Some writers need to be educated on sexual preferences and gender classification. They are not the same. Gays are always men and lesbians are always women. A transgender is one that crosses the line between a man and a woman or inversely a woman to a man. A male transgender thinks he is a woman with a body of a man. No amount of genital surgery is available to him. He can't be "retrofitted with a birth canal, an ovary or uterus and expect to have her period every 28 days." He could bear no children. Because a male transgender thinks he is a woman, he dresses like a woman.

Some are using the term gay and transgender rather loosely. A transgender is not about sexual preference or sexual orientation (it ran across of males and females) but "gender identity." Laude thinks he is a woman when he is not. He modifies his body by using female hormones, resorting breast augmentation short of genital surgery. A gay person on the other hand expresses his sexual or romantic preference. Gays prefer men and lesbians prefer women. Transgender are lost because their gender does not conform to social norms. The term transgender was coined in the 80's, I believe. Cross dressers are gays who dress up like the opposite sex. Like Robin Williams in in the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire."

What is the difference between a tomboy (T-bird in Tagalog), a lesbian, a gay man and Jennifer Laude? BTW, in case you don't know: "the Philippines ranking as the 10th most gay-friendly country in the world."

[Someone]: I Think we are in the same wavelength on the gender of Laude. As I have been posting, contrary to the editorial of PNL and even the Philippine Daily Inquirer that they will recognize Laude as a "she" and addressed Laude as such, that Jeffrey Laude is still a male, regardless of his name, breast and even his female part (if he had it transformed his male part to a female part) as long as he is not legally declared/classified as a female by Court of Law. Again, the only recourse of the family and friends and the media is call her "Jennifer" as a term of endearment. This has legal and basis in fact.

[Someone]: Both Laude and Pemberton are adults. The club where Laude works could not act as some kind of a "moral guardian" reminding people working for the business establishment to watch their backs. Pemberton on the other hand has been given a lot of briefings by the Marine Corps through his superior officers. Outside of the ship and beyond the confines of the club premises, both are free to do their thing. Both are accountable for their actions and the consequences as well. Both crossed the line and ignored the limits of what they are permitted to do, if I may say. BOTH HAD TO PAY THE PRICE!

Re Transgender. If you used (I used to) to watch the series "Real Sex" in HBO (if you saw the episodes, no need to narrate this, but if not...) there was a stripper who is so beautiful in every way; "she" was pretty and beautiful in everything until "she" exposed what's between "her" legs. It is a penis and balls! But he has a "legion" of fans, live and TV viewers (incidentally includes me, hehehe). Fans love him because he is transparent to them. The "documentary" (if it was) explained he is still a male because he choose to keep his penis.

I want to caution some writers about using some terms loosely like transgender, crossdresser, drag queen, transvestite, etc. Also about the misconception that military people have more positive perception about lesbians and gays like the general population. Moreover about gender and sex.

Sam Juan: If you do sex in 1/2 hour then you are doing it wrong or you have early ejaculation there is something wrong with you! Just because a used condom were found, "sex" (anal and/or oral) was consummated between Laude and Pemberton. I don't think so. Report says, Pemberton left the motel 1/2 hour later after checking in; 1/2 hour is long enough to allegedly kill Laude but too short for "sex", if you will ask me. I can just imagine there was violence right away as soon as Pemberton grasped the crouch of Laude and found something Pemberton did not expect.

Pemberton, the soldier accused of Killing Laude, the Transgender is now in PHL custody. It appears that the USA is honoring the letter of the VFA and giving deference to PHL jurisdiction. This is a very good development, for those who doubt the sincerity of the parties to the VFA. To the Communists - WHAT NOW? To the Corrupt Columnists and Dirty Politicians imputing blame on Aquino - Eat your words! These dregs of PHL society are insisting on connecting this incident with the VFA. How stupid and irresponsible is that? If the USA withdraws from the treaty and leaves the PHL, eh SINO ANG NAWALAN?

The case of People of the Philippines vs Pemberton (whenever the case is finally filed against Pemberton). It will be equivalent to 2nd degree murder (manslaughter, not a premeditated killing) only in the U.S. If the prosecutor will "bite more than he/she could chew", (by charging Pemberton) with murder in the first degree, they might as well say good bye to him. Worse, if Miriam Santiago will be the sitting judge. She might throw the case right away. Or hate as an aggravating factor.

[To someone]. There is no law stopping Jeffrey Laude from using the name "Jennifer" even without paper work as long it is not for fraudulent use. Naturalized citizens changed their names to become more "Americanized". Why not for a female name to identify one's gender as in the case of Laude? I know of someone whose last name was changed to more acceptable names. And another person whose name was Dr. Rosita Canto who got married to a Chinese guy whose family name was Tan.

A Confused Binay. In his interviews Binay recounted his undying loyalty for Cory Aquino hoping he could call in some chips from Noynoy. He even mentioned that he was on Cory's side in all the 7 coups staged by Enrile and Honasan. Ah, GANOON BA? So why is he on the side of Enrile, Honasan and all the crooks in the UNA party now. Besides no one is questioning his loyalty (such as it is). What is being questioned is the tons of money he and his family accumulated without any justifiable source. This guy Binay is a true wheeler dealer. He would say and do anything just to get his way.

The matter of Laude's disloyalty to "her" alleged German boyfriend is not an issue. What is at stake here is a crime was committed by a foreign soldier on Philippine soil. It is about how justice will be served and provide relief to a grieving party. Sexual orientation is not the issue either. So let us not talk about romantic preferences or gender identity here.

We don't need to belabor Jennifer Laude's issue to a point of creating a news within a news. Concentrating on her case without let up sometimes create divergence which can confuse important elements altogether. I hear complain that the President should have offered condolence or visit her wake. The issue have become convoluted to include politics in it. Let's not denigrate Jennifer's case but leave the judicial process to proceed without too much kibitzing or proselytizing from our side.

The accusations against Binay are getting more outrageous with each passing day. This time it was alleged that he was offering Ph10M for EACH Hearing the Makati Official skips. WOW! Do the math. Notice too that Binay was not even asking the witness to lie. He just wanted the witness not to appear at the Senate. This is how DESPERATE this guy is to be President. And where is Binay getting that kind of money? Clearly this is a very dangerous man to even be Mayor, let alone President.

I really admire what the subcommittee of the Blue Ribbon Committee is doing. It is leaving no stone unturned and keeping the heat on Binay. Now Binay is forced to accept a debate with Senator Trillianes. He will throw in pre-conditions to face on a debate with Trillianes except on the floor of the Senate. A man accused falsely has the courage to face his accusers but not this man Binay. Running away from the truth is an admission of guilt. Deafening silence reinforces it. How long Jejomar could bear the senate inquisition is only a matter of time. Making speeches is but a band-aid remedy for Binay. He will capitulate eventually.

Trillanes will most probably use his Tenacity in nailing the Binays once he pursues his Malacañang ambitions in the future. Come to think of it, with Aquino out of the running it would really be a wide open field in 2016. And if it comes down to a choice between Roxas and Trillanes I would not hesitate to go for Trillanes. This man has taken everyone to task bravely. First Arroyo. Then Enrile. Then the Pork Barrel Scammers. Now Binay. I think to myself, what is there not to like? This guy is rebellious but his causes were justified. I sure hope he has Presidential ambitions because that would keep the conversation about Binay going. And I hope it goes until Binay is finished.

Antonio Tiu, Binay's Front Man should be held accountable for his lies. Covering up for a criminal (Binay) makes him an accessory. The govt. investigators should look into this. This Tiu is so cocky it as if he dares the govt. to touch him. It's not as if this is the first time the PHL has seen Front Men. Marcos surrounded himself with dozens of them while he plundered the country. And not one of them went to jail. Which explains why there are still people like Antonio Tiu.

The Senators have fallen into the Binay trap. Challenging Trillanes into a debate is like Kobe Bryant challenging Pacquiao in a one on one basketball game. Binay is a seasoned lawyer versus a plain soldier? Lawyers can make clean white into gray. They have studied and trained for this. Why not challenge Cayetano who has proven to be a brilliant lawyer besides he is the one who is running for President and not Trillanes. Binay is a coward. We don't need a VP who has no self-respect. Ibasura na si Binay. Hindi ito nakakatulong at hindi makakatulong sa bayan.

News: Binay challenges Trillanes to a debate. News: Trillanes accepts. Wants to hold the debate in Hacienda Binay. It's now Binay's move. If he agrees he will have to face and answer questions Trillanes could have asked him in the Senate. If he does not it would be quite obvious he was just bluffing. And only people with something to hide pulls bluffs. This challenge issued by Binay is filled with career ending risks. In the first place there are so many allegations of Plunder labeled against him. Which is why he does not want to show up in the Senate. By debating he in effect is giving his enemies a chance to expose him for what he really is.

We can sense that VP Binay and family are shaking to their bones about the Senate and DOJ investigation re corruption committed by the whole family. They are so afraid that the truth will come out from the time when Pres. Cory appointed Jojo Binay as mayor of Makati when they were still poor and now he is the VP and wife and children became mayors and congresswoman and senator and are already multi millionaires. They were so corrupt that no project can be done or building erected in Makati without giving 13% to the Binays. It's hard to explain the source of this largesse except to stop these investigations. God Bless us all if VP Binay becomes president of the Philippines.

All assets by politicians in the Philippines are never purchased with borrowed money. If they were paid with hard earned money it could be traced through the banks. Many assets come in exchange for a favor and their recollections of how they came out get lost over the years. They suddenly developed amnesia. Assets must match income from an accountant's point of view. Politicians disagree with that!

Many are predicting that Binay will never face the senate hearings regarding the over pricing incidences in the city of Makati during his term, his wife and maybe his son Jun Jun. Someone said that Binay accumulated so much asset because he was from Batangas and Batanguenos are thrifty (matipid) people. So, I would assume that when forced to face the Blue Ribbon Committee to air his side, Binay will be very economical with the truth.

When you file an income tax return don't you declare annual gross salary? Slips of different kind are send to you depending on your situation/livelihood. If you have investments, you declare your gains and losses. If I'm right SALN defines salary and liability net worth. Don't you declare in the income tax Mr. Hilong-Hilo? Shares of stocks are not ask by Government of Canada but the gains/losses in your investments when you file income tax returns. BTW, I'm not a CPA, FP but an ordinary, law-abiding citizen not in any trouble with any Government and always trying to do the right thing. Why? Because I'm a mortal human being.

About Sen. Revilla claiming that he earned his questioned money deposits from his movie royalty, I'm sure he can present the cancelled checks corresponding these deposits on that particular dates the money was deposited to his accounts. I'm sure the movie company did not pay him in bags of cash unlike what Ben Hur Luy said that he gave bags of cash to the bagman of Senator Revilla. We should not believe in his words only, all these corrupt politicians and actors thinks they are still acting in movies.

Death of Filipino Transgender 'Jennifer' Laude Was Totally Preventable

The evening for the young US Marine and his Filipino date "Jennifer" began at the Ambyanz Disco Bar in Subic Bay, Olongapo and ended shortly before midnight at the Celzone Lodge where "Jennifer's" lifeless body was found leaning against the toilet bowl. Jennifer, it turns out was actually not originally a "she" but a "he." A Filipino transgender, Jeffrey Laude, 26, began calling himself "Jennifer" after medical procedures made him look more female than male. Published 10/14/2014


Sorry Mr. President But PNP Chief Alan Purisima Has to Go

What’s with Philippine civil servants these days? It seems that you can stick all their pictures on a wall; throw a dart; and whoever’s photo it land on, that person can be successfully prosecuted for graft. It is unbelievable how pervasive and widespread corruption has become. We go from one corruption scandal to the next and there seems to be no end in sight. Published 10/07/2014
Tear Down the Torre de Manila Building Being Built Behind the Rizal Monument?

According to the developer’s website, “Torre de Manila, DMCI Homes’ newest one-tower condominium, is an exclusive residential community right in the heart of the city.” As of this writing, the 49-story edifice is about halfway complete. But as it continues to rise, so too do the howls of protest from an eclectic collection of groups and individuals who want it torn down. Why? Torre de Manila will permanently mar the skyline behind the Rizal Monument. Published 10/01/2014
How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day

On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac, Ilocos Norte became the despotic dictator for over a decade. Published 09/23/2014
Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines

In our July 25th editorial we asked if Vice President Jejomar Binay should be the next president of the Philippines. In this editorial we arrive at the definitive conclusion that that Binay should not be elected president. Since our last editorial, more witnesses have come forward with more allegations against the embattled Vice President. But our decision not to support Binay’s presidential bid is based on irrefutable public acts that in our opinion disqualify him from the presidency. Published 09/16/2014

Napoles Prays 2,000 Rosaries a Day, So Does She Get a Free Pass to Heaven?

After leaving her August 15th bail hearing at the Sandiganbayan, Janet Lim Napoles showed the media the marble rosary she personally received from recently canonized Saint Pope John Paul II. Her lawyer Stephen David later disclosed to media that Napoles prays 2,000 rosaries a day. Given that a day has only 24 hours or 1,440 minutes, Napoles would have to complete an entire rosary in less than a minute praying non-stop for an entire day…every day. Atty. David also pointed out that Napoles paid for the schooling of at least 200 priests and helped construct many Catholic churches. Published 08/30/2014
