Judge Sarah (Palin): Coming Soon To A TV Channel Near You, And Perhaps The Supreme Court

BILLINGS, Montana (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) –  Move over, Judge Judy. Move over, Judge Joe Brown. Here comes the newest courtroom judge — Judge Sarah. As in Judge Sarah Palin!

The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor has signed a deal with Montana-based production company Warm Springs to preside over a new reality courtroom TV that is scheduled to premiere next year.

Unlike Judges Judy and Joe Brown, Palin does not have a juris doctor degree. But Warm Springs believes that she has a variety of other qualities that make her perfectly suited to the job — a telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom (yikes!).

But this is just the beginning of Palin’s judicial career.

The Adobo Chronicles  has learned from very reliable sources that she is being groomed to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now we know why the Republicans are insisting that it should be the next president who should nominate Scalia’s replacement, hoping of course that Donald Trump would be that president.

“It’s about time that we appoint a youthful pretty face to the high court,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

Not to mention another conservative voice — and a shrieky one at that.

Duterte Honors His Word, Quits Presidential Race Following Supreme Court Decision On Grace Poe

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte first officially announced that he will run for president of the Philippines in the 2016 elections, he said that what prompted his decision was the  Senate tribunal vote throwing out the disqualification case (DQ) against Senator Grace Poe’s presidential bid.

Duterte believed then that Poe, being a foundling, is not a natural-born citizen and thus not qualified to seek the highest post in the land. The decision of the tribunal, he said, “cheapens the Constitution, the only thing that holds the country together.”

Since then, the Commission on Elections has disqualified Poe, prompting the DQ case to come before the Supreme Court.

Well, yesterday the high court ruled in favor of Poe, in a 9-6 decision, affirming the senator’s status as a natural-born citizen, paving the way for her presidential bid.

Today, saying he was a man who has a word of honor, and being a lawyer who respects the law and constitutional process, Duterte suspended his campaign to run for president.

‘With the Supreme Court ruling, my primary motivation for running is now moot and void,’ Duterte said.

So the presidential race is now down to three candidates. Four if you count VP Jejomar Binay.

 

Philippine Supreme Court Expected Rule In Favor Of Senator Grace Poe, Thanks To Senator Bongbong Marcos

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Only one thing remains to be a hindrance to Senator Grace Poe being elected next president of the Philippines: the disqualification case against her now pending with the Supreme Court.

The case revolves around the issue of Poe not being a natural-born citizen as required of all candidates for president.  Poe, a foundling, has not established her natural-born status because the citizenship of her biological parents is unknown.  She was adopted by film actors Fernando Poe, Jr., and Susan Roces.

The Adobo Chronicles  has learned that the Supreme Court is about to issue its decision on the landmark case, and it would be in favor of Poe, thanks to vice presidential candidate, Senator Bongbong Marcos.

There is an urban legend that claims Poe is an illegitimate child of Bongbong’s father, the late Ferdinand E. Marcos with Susan’s sister, Rosemarie Sonora.

Well, Bongbong has openly acknowledged that Poe is his sister, and just recently he declared that he was “standing by” his statement. That was good enough for the Supreme Court to rule that Poe is indeed a natural-born citizen.

The big question now is, if Poe is elected president and Marcos is elected vice president, wouldn’t that constitute nepotism and a conflict of interest?

That could be the next case to be brought before the Supreme Court.
