Gilbert Teodoro: The Conspiracy Theory

The Stats

Gilberto Eduardo Gerardo "Gilbert"/"Gibô" Cojuangco Teodoro Jr. was born June 14, 1964 and is the present secretary of the Department of National Defense of the Philippines. He was a member of the House of Representatives representing the 1st district of the province of Tarlac from 1998 to 2007. "Gibo" is the presidential candidate of the Lakas-CMD party and the bet of the administration.

He is the son of former Social Security Systems (SSS) administrator Gilbert Teodoro, Sr. and former congresswoman Mercedes Cojuangco-Teodoro. "Gibo" is also the nephew of Eduardo Cojuangco, Jr., chairman of San Miguel Corporation (SMC).

Secretary Teodoro, who holds distinct memberships in the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, UP Alumni Association, UP Law Alumni Association, Harvard Alumni Association and the Harvard Law Alumni Association, is also a licensed commercial pilot and a Colonel in the Philippine Air Force Reserve.

The Kiss of Death

Aside from President Gloria Arroyo, three other popular personalities - former President Joseph Estrada, Filipino boxing champ Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao, and TV host Willie Revillame - also carry the proverbial "Kiss of Death."

This was one of the findings of a new survey conducted in late October by pollster Pulse Asia.


"Small to sizable majorities (58 percent to 79 percent) are surely/probably not supporting a presidential bet endorsed by the said personalities," Pulse Asia said in its Website.

The Conspiracy?

President Gloria Arroyo has announced that she will run for Congress in next year's elections. She said she wanted to continue to work in public service and represent her home province of Pampanga.


With regards to Cha-Cha, the current members of the House of Representatives were almost evenly split when it came to the question on federalism. Fifty-six voted in favor of a federal form of government, while 54 were not in favor.

A majority however, said they want a shift to a parliamentary form of government, with 89 voting in favor of it and 29 saying no. Constitutional Assembly was the most favored mode of amending the Constitution, with 62 saying in favor of it.

So how does this seemingly incongruent topics patch up?

Connecting the Dots

If Gilbert Teodoro is proclaimed as the 15th President of the Philippines and he sticks with Cha-Cha, then the ultimate winner here is no doubt the power-hungry Gloria Arroyo.

In a parliamentary system, the prime minister is chosen amongst the members of the parliament (House of Representatives + the Senate) and if Mrs. Arroyo wins as congresswoman which obviously will be a landslide victory, she will have again another chance for supreme, undaunted power.



"So if we want Mrs. Gloria Arroyo another chance to embezzle our hard-earned pesos, then we should blindly vote for Mr. Gilbert Teodoro."




"Yes, the country needs another intelligent and corrupt leader!!!"

What's the reason why you won't vote him?

  • He is GMA's pet?
  • He is such a newbie to be the next President?

Gibo is the best kind of presidential bet, with guts and and brains to handle the myriad situation facing the country today from security to economy, both domestic and international alliances with nations. The one that every Filipino can be proud of in international scene. Equipped with know leadership abilities and compassion to serve the people as evident in his effort to keep the peace in mindanao and the advent of the catastrophic typoon undoy that devastated the metropolis, these are just few of the many concern shown by him.

this doctor is a negative author. if he is really a doctor, he gives no hope to a patient.

conspiracy theory, kiss of death...really you are a doctor death.

negativity has no place in this world.

gibo teodoro does not speak of ill will, he has his political agenda.

no need to fear of gma. she has done nothing wrong on her administration. corruption allegations are all in the mind of paranoid people. how could there be corruption in NBN ZTE where there was no contract at all.

enough of this bad publicity.

the sun sets for a good morning and good day. that is what we need.

Yes I am I will vote for Gibo.... he is not a puppet but its Noynoy who is the puppet....... this is my opinion and I will stand for it..


OFW of Abu Dhabi 6 years ago

If voting Gibo will mean of changing the bloody Philippine Consituttion, then to me thats for the best for Filipinos. I am in favor of changing the present government to parliamentary system an then changing the sheets of philippine consitution. If Gibo is part of the plan for the entire process then I will support him. What does Aguino's have done to the Philippines anyway? Ninoy died with what contribution? Yet he received the hero honor.. for what achievement? Cory became president and for the record, many "KODETA" had happened during her term as president. TWA is the term i heard from 1 radio commentator about Cory. Noynoy? Does he contribute something to the Philippine government? alam ba nya ang maging mahirap? for sure hindi kasi mayaman yan. Hindi sya corrupt? Maybe and therefore he is not appropraite to lead cos leading a corrupt people requires a corrupt president. Corrupt in a sense of weighing the required action as to present situation to benefit millions of people than a hundred.

If its Leadership you want there's GORDON....i wont vote for Gibo not because of Gloria nor do i question his intelligence its just that i see GORDON as a better candidate because of his numerous achievements and his view on volunteerism and changing the mindset of the Filipino for the better


Sony 6 years ago

GORDON also is in favor of charter change. And what's more: he doesn't have any hidden agenda like Gibo has.

Yes, Gibo is not GMA's puppet. He is the Admin's pupppet! Remember, the GMA is not alone in this. He has a whole lot of power hungry people with her. That's political machinery for you.

@OFW.. Fact is that most people who have found themselves outside the Philippines at some point or another realize that Gloria Arroyo isn't evil. In fact, that @OFW of Abu Dhabi was right. This is all necropolitics and its madness. Remember those 8 hour brownouts, endless coups and a lot of extreme adventure?

On this coming Election 2010, I'm encouraging everyone to really know(examine) each candidates(Local & Nat'l Levels). And to vote for the right choice. Personally. I'll vote for someone who will solve corruption(abuse of power).


Fee_earner_Philippines 6 years ago

Hi everyone I already voted for Gibo, i have carefully study the background and credentials of GORDON and GIBO Gordon is ahead in terms of achievements but I considered GIBO's achievements at a very young age both are lawyers but GIBO has top notched achievements on that part and still manage to learn be become a pilot. For Gordon No doubt he has made numerous achievements on different fields of his interest. Now why I vote for GIBO..I met a profiler of FBI while in NY last March and found that his of pinoy roots and can speak clearly in tagalog we cant but help to discuss the coming elections now I ask him to profile and assess GIBO and GORDON re-youtube video links of their interviews with the ff results: to my surprise he said that GORDON has hidden anger/hatred judging from his "fake smiles after a serious note of speech" The way he use hand gestures while saying a word is delayed meaning: not sincere, lying, or trying to remember a thought. While on GIBO the FBI profiler said: He knows what his saying and he means it. His gestures are in rhyme with his words, articulate. The eye does not roll too much meaning his sincere or doesn't lie. He even explained some details of possible health issues for Gordon & Gibo but would not share on this blog. All the best and may Philippines choose the right President we urgently need. Godbless everyone.

WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEED IS AN INTELLIGENT LEADER, NOT A FAMOUS LEADER. STOP THINKING OF STUPIDITY AND THINK WISELY INSTEAD. THINK OF THIS FACT, I BELIEVE THIS MAN "GIBO" CAN LEAD OUR COUNTRY, THAT YOU CANNOT DO. WHATEVER THE RESULT OF THIS ELECTION WILL BE, WHETHER HE WINS OR LOSE, I WILL NOT REGRET BECAUSE I KNOW I MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE.
