WHAT A “NICE” WAY TO DECEIVED
Changing the “model” of the car changes nothing because the facts remain and these prove you wrong and lying
IN insisting that Brother Rolan Esguerra, a member of the Sanggunian, committing corrupt practices, Antonio Ebangelista insists that Ka Rolan bought a brand-new BMW high-end luxury worth 3.49 million pesos. The reason why he titled the article he published last June 23, 2015 as “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES.” Although in the title it’s “3200 series,” but in his article he mentioned what Ka Rolan bought was a BMW F30 3 series a high-end luxury car. This is what he said in the June 23, 2015 version of his article:
“So to whom is this Bought-Brand New BMW 3 series blue rider, which is parked everyday at Bro. Rolando A. Esguerra’s residence and frequently used for his official and unofficial travels, registered to? Take note at the Plate Number, let’s ask another AE correspondent from LTO Main Office to provide us their database entry for this Plate Number WOW-809”
Antonio Ebangelista even included a picture of the F30 3 series BMW car in his article to make his readers believe that it was the high-end luxury car F30 3 series that Ka Rolan bought. However, we have proven that in the registration of the said car, nothing there that says that the car is a BMW F30 3 series, a high-end luxury car. It our last article we have shown evidences that “3200 series” is different from “F30 3 series.” It is also clear that Ka Rolan is not the original owner, thus, the car he bough was not a brand new car, but a second-hand car. And take note that it is Antonio Ebangelista himself who said that it’s a 2012 model. THIS ONLY SHOWS THAT ANTONIO EBANGELISTA IS LYING IN SAYING THAT KA ROLAN BOUGHT A BRAND-NEW BMW F-30 3 SERIES HIGH-END CAR.

“EVERYTHING YOU SAID ARE ALREADY ANSWERED!”
Now, as an attempt to recover from the disgrace of being proven lying, he made a “palusot.” This is what he said in his short blog this June 26, 2015 entitled “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 320d SERIES.” Take note that the title of the original article is “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” (June 23, 2015), in his June 26 blog he changed “3200” to 320D.” About this changes, this is what he said:
“Take a closer look at the LTO Database file of the BMW Series: 320D (“D”) not 3200. My apologies for the typoghraphical error on the previous blog title. Additional info of the BMW 320D from http://www.autoindustritya.com regarding the price range.” [Antonio Ebangelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 320d SERIES” June 26, 2015]
IT WAS HIM WHO MADE THE MISTAKE AND NOT US. We only “followed” what he said in the title that a Sanggunian member “BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” (June 23, 2015). For this reason, he made a DRASTIC CHANGE to his June 23 article. We call the new version as “June 26 version,” and the old version as “June 23 version.”
So let us see the changes he made and how he insist that Ka Rolan bought a “high-end luxury car.” This is what he said in the June 23 version:
“Now ain’t this ride a dream-come-true to a lot of high-end-car-lovers out there? While some of you are still drooling while dreaming of having a car like this, Tata Roland has been riding this already. And please take note that this BMW 3 Series has a Php 3.490 Million price tag. And driving this fuel-guzzler on the road requires quite a hefty fuel expense that no ordinary Minister, nor any ordinary brethren can afford, probably not unless you are part of the Sanggunian or the circle of Millionaires in the country.” [Antonio Ebangelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” June 23, 2015 version]
This is what he said in the June 26 version:
“NOTE: BMW 320d VARIANT. Now ain’t this ride a dream-come-true to a lot of high-end-car-lovers out there? While some of you are still drooling while dreaming of having a car like this, Tata Roland has been riding this already. And please take note that this BMW 3 Series has a Php 3.490 Million price tag. And driving this fuel-guzzler on the road requires quite a hefty fuel expense that no ordinary Minister, nor any ordinary brethren can afford, probably not unless you are part of the Sanggunian or the circle of Millionaires in the country.” [Antonio Ebangelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” June 23, 2015 version]
MAYBE THERE IS NO PROBLEM ALTHOUGH HE MADE
CHANGES IN HIS ARTICLE?
YES, OF COURSE THERE ARE PROBLEMS WHEN HE MADE CHANGES IN HIS ARTICLE. FIRST, this proves that he is not true to his words or he is LYING when he said:
“1. Ako po ay mag-isa lamang na sumusulat ng mga ito. Ang mga larawan, dokumento at iba pang mga ebidensya ay mga ipinadala lamang sa akin ng mga kapatid sa iba’t-ibang panig ng mundo na amin pongipina-verify muna ang “authenticity” ng mga ito bago po naming ito isiniwalat sa facebook at iba pang social networking sites.” I am the only one who’s writing these. The pictires, documents and other evidences were sent to me by the brethren drom different parts of the world which we verify first the their authenticity before we published this in facebook and other social networking sites [Antonio Ebangelista, “Let Me Make Myself Clear” April 27, 2015]
So, we are not the one who is destroying your refutation and credibility. This is your own making. It is you who is not true to your own words.
SECOND, He only changed the “model” of the car, but THE LIES IN HIS ARTICLE REMAIN. In this new version, how did Antonio Ebangelista proves that Ka Rolan owns a “BRAND NEW BMW HIGH-END LUXURY CAR”?
(1) He took a picture of the car while parked at Ka Rolan’s garage;
(2) He post a picture of the registration of the said car;
(3) He post a zoom in of the registration of the car and commented, “NOTE: BMW 320D. and NOT 3200. Registered as the original buyer/owner (Dummy): JESSIE L. MENDOZA. You can ask him for any further questions you may have regarding this shady BMW which Ka RAE is using and is still registered under his name.”
(4) Then he posted four photos of a brand new high end luxury car from the website of TOP GEAR PHILIPPINES;
(5) Then posted a screenshot of an article of Top Gear Philippines about “BMW F30 3 Series” a high-end luxury car;
(6) An addition to June 26 version, he posted a screenshot of the webpage or “autoindustriya.com”;
(7) He also, added a screenshot telling that a BMW 320D Luxury AT DSi is worth 3.49 million pesos also from the webpage of “autoindustriya.com.”
AND WALLAH!!! He concluded that Ka Rolan is a corrupt minister because he bought a brand new (this time) a “BMW 320D Luxury AT DSi”
LET US AGAIN EXAMINE HIS EVIDENCES
Let us established (for the sake of arguments) that the registration says it’s BMW 320D, but the registration also says that it’s a diesel, 4 cylinder car, Sedan, model 2012, and with gross weight of 1,965 kg. Please remember these information.
(1) If it is a BMW 320, is it automatically a “high-end luxury Car”? When Antonio Ebangelista saw it’s a 320D he hastily concluded that it’s a high-end car. Is he right?
In a news article of USA TODAY puplished last February 21, 2012, This is what is stated:
“Flood of low-end luxury cars aims to batter BMW 3 Series”
By James R. Healey, USA TODAY
February 21, 2012
“A bare-knuckles fight is about to begin for low-end luxury-car buyers. Never mind that small cars generally don't go over well with American buyers. Or that the recession left fewer people with enough cash or credit for a lux-mobile...
"Everybody wants to have a (BMW) 3 Series," says Steve Shannon, U.S. marketing chief for Hyundai, which sells larger luxury models Genesis and Equus. "That is such a great spot to be in...
“Challenging the 3 Series is a formidable undertaking, whether done head-on, as the Caddy ATS will do, or obliquely, by selling a car that's only roughly similar in size or price. Even BMW's own smaller and lower-price model, the 1 Series, can't do it: BMW sells 11 times as many 3's as 1's.
“Introduced in the U.S. as the 1977 BMW 320, the first 3 Series car immediately drew admirers for its then-uncommon blend of sports-car handling and sedan practicality.
“When the second-generation 1984 version of the 3 hit showrooms, upwardly mobile "yuppies" (young urban professionals) thought they'd found the perfect wheels for their rising status.
“Now it's BMW's best-seller, accounting for 38% of all BMW's U.S. sales last year. A slightly larger, quicker, more fuel-efficient, sixth-generation 3 just went on sale and it's better-equipped than the car it replaces.
“The 328 sedan is $35,795; the 335i is $43,295. Even though the new one is much-improved, BMW says, the price is up just $300.
“BMW is saying, in effect, "Bring it on."
This news tell us that in 2012 that “Flood of low-end luxury cars aims to batter BMW 3 Series.” However, BMW released their own version of “low-end cars” including “low-end luxuary car” of 328 series, 335i series, 3 series, and 320 series. Take note that there is a BMW 320 low-end luxuary car series. THUS, THERE ARE 320D HIGH-END LUXURY CAR, BUT THERE ARE ALSO 320D LOW-END LUXURY CARS. SO, IT IS WRONG TO CONCLUDE THAT IF IT IS A BMW 320D IT IS AUTOMATICALLY A HIGH-END CAR.
(2) Is the BMW 320D bought by Ka Rolan a “high-end luxury Car” or a “low-end luxury car”? Antonio Ebangelista says Its the high-end BMW 320D Luxury, but we say it’s not. Who is telling the truth?
Antonio Ebangelista made a hasty conclusion that the BMW 320D bought by Ka Rolan is the high-end sporty “BMW 320 AT Dsi.” His only evidence is a picture showing the front of the car bought by Ka Rolan and a screenshot of “BMW 320D Luxury AT Dsi,” then he hastily concluded that the BMW 320D high-end luxury worth 3.49 million is the car bought by Ka Rolan. Doing this kind of argumentation, I think he will not pass the Science Exam of a fourth grader. Is Antonio Ebangelista smarter than a fourth grader? In the screenshot of BMW 320D Luxury AT DSi, he only included the picture of the car but not the information below the picture of the car. Let us see the whole page:
Take note that the CURB WEIGHT of BMW 320D Luxury AT Dsi is 1,495 kg:
“Curb weight” is “estimated weight of the vehicle in operational status WITH ALL standard equipment, and weight of fuel at nominal tank capacity, and the weight of optional equipment”:
“The United States Environmental Protection Agency regulations  define Curb Weight as follows: Curb weight means the actual or the manufacturer’s estimated weight of the vehicle in operational status with all standard equipment, and weight of fuel at nominal tank capacity, and the weight of optional equipment computed in accordance with §86.1832–01; incomplete light-duty trucks shall have the curb weight specified by the manufacturer.” [Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curb_weight]
Thus, “curb weight” of a vehicle is also the “gross weight” of the vehicle:
“Gross weight means The total weight, including contents, packaging, etc.” [Source: http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/gross-weight.html]
The “curb weight” or the “gross weight” of the car Ka Rolan bought is 1,965 kg:
According to the car’s registration provided
by Antonio Ebangelista himself
About 500 kg (half ton) is the difference in weight between Ka Rolan’s car (1,965 kg) and the BMW 320D Luxury AT Dsi (1,495 kg) – a big difference we cannot ignore. Thus, BMW Luxury 320D is different from Ka Rolan’s car. THUS, ANTONIO EBANGELISTA IS WRONG IN SAYING IT’S THE BMW 320D LUXURY AT Dsi.
(3) How about the price? Is there a BMW 320D worth much less than the BMW 320D Luxury car?
Take note that the cost of a brand new “BMW 3 Series 320d Luxury A/T” is 3.49 million, and also “BMW 3 Series 320d Sport A/T” and BMW 3 Series 320d Modern A/T.” Also, please notice that there is a “BMW 320D” also but worth less that Luxury, Sport and Modern – the “BMW 3 Series 320D Essential A/T (Sedan, Diesel, Automatic)” worth 2.79 million. THUS, THERE ARE BMW 320D WORTH LESS THAN BMW 320 LUXURY.
(4) Are we wrong in saying that the car Ka Rolan bought cost less than one million pesos? They argue that BMW cannot be bought with less than a million peso?
A brand new “BMW 3 Series 320d Luxury, Sports and Modern each worth 3.49 million Let us be reminded that this is the worth of these three cars as brand new and in the year 2015. Please note the heading of the screenshot: “New BMW 3 Series prices 2015 for sale in Philippines.” Also, the worth of “BMW 3 Series 320D Essential A/T (Sedan, Diesel, Automatic)” (2.79 million) is the price of this car as brand new and as of 2015. However, the car we are talking about is from 2012. We know the value of a car decreased if it’s a second-hand car and an earlier (not the latest) model. Let us have an example:
WHAT! A second-hand 2012 BMW 328 Sports (not a low-end, but a high-end BMW car) worth only 875,000 pesos as of 2014. If you want to be sure, click the link and take a look for yourselves… NOW YOU SEE IT YOURSELF, DO YOU NOW BELIEVE ME THAT A BMW 2012 CAR CAN COST THIS LESS?
(5) They say it’s “brand new car,” but we say it’s a “second-hand car”? Who is telling the truth?
Now, let us examine how true is Antonio Ebangelista’s allegation that Ka Rolan bought a “brand new BMW car”? Antonio Ebangelista himself said this:
“REGISTERED AS THE ORIGINAL BUYER/OWNER: JESSIE L. MENDOZA. You can ask him for any further questions you may have regarding this shady BMW which Ka RAE is using and is still registered under his name.” [Antonio Ebanghelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” June 23, 2015 version]
If a car has an original owner, and you are not the first owner or not the original owner, then the car you bought is a second-hand car!!! Antonio Ebangelista said it’s a brand new car, and he also attests that there is an original owner (not Ka Rolan), THUS IT’S A BRAND NEW SECOND-HAND CAR? LOL.
(6) If it is a second-hand car, why the car is still in the name of the original owner?
If it is a second-hand car and Ka Rolan already bought it, why the name of the owner in the registration is not yet change? Everybody knows that although the car was already sold to others but changing the name of the owner cannot be done immediately. Remember the case we heard in the news about a car used in a crime, and the police or the reporter traced the owner through the registration from LTO Database file? The car is still in the name of the original owner, an executive of “GMA 7.” But when they questioned the original owner, he showed proofs that he already sold the car two years ago to someone else. That’s how the policemen managed to grabbed the perpetrator.
(7) Is the original owner only a “dummy” of Ka Rolan according to Antonio Ebangelista’s accusation? Is he telling the truth?
Antonio Ebangelista made a new version of his allegation. This is what he said in the June 26 version:
“NOTE: BMW 320D. and NOT 3200. Registered as the original buyer/owner (Dummy): JESSIE L. MENDOZA. You can ask him for any further questions you may have regarding this shady BMW which Ka RAE is using and is still registered under his name.” [Antonio Ebangelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” June 26, 2015 version]
Look at the new version – he inserted the word “(dummy).” This is what Antonio Ebangelista further claims:
This particular Sanggunian member doesn’t register his high-end vehicles under his own name, or atleast not all of his cars, that’s what close-associates (Dummies) are for. He has a knack for acquiring the latest and grandest vehicles, and most of the time, he will buy the vehicle, have a deed of sale, BUT the change of ownership will not yet be transferred so it will not reflect him as the actual owner. This tactful procedure also goes the same way if the property (high end vehicle in this case) is given to the Sanggunian as a “gift” for a favor (Project Referral or Successfully acquired government project), but for security reasons, the registration will remain with the previous owner or buyer. This is their favorite “absolute deniability” excuse.” [Antonio Ebanghelista, “PHP 3.5 MILLION BOUGHT BRAND NEW BMW 3200 SERIES” June 26, 2015 version]
TThis statement is not based on facts (no evidences whatsoever, just opinions and allegations). However, we have an evidence that this “car” truly has an original owner and Ka Rolan cannot used this “original owner” as a dummy. Why? Let us take a closer look of the of the registration of this car and this is what we can see in lower left side (it is Antonio Ebangelista himself who provided this copy of the registration of the said car):
Antonio Ebangelista has no evidence that Ka Rolan and this original owner know each other. The fact is they have no connection, no link. Now as we can see on the lower left part of the registration, this car was “encumbered” to UCPB by the original owner. What’ s “encumbered”? Let us see the “financial definition” of this word:
“Encumbered. A property owned by one party on which a second party reserves the right to make a valid claim, e.g., a bank's holding of a home mortgage encumbers property.” [Source: http://financial-dictionary. thefreedictionary.com/encumbered]
The original owner of this car “encumbered” it to UCPB, a bank. Thus, this bank “reserved the right to make a valid claim” to this car. It seems that the original owner seek financial assistance from UCPB. We know that banks are very careful in giving any “loan” to a client, including “car loan.” The one seeking “loan” from a bank will undergo a strict and intensive process (including character Investigation) before his “loan” will be granted. THUS, IN SAYING THAT THE ORIGINAL OWNER IS A DUMMY OF KA ROLAN IS “STRANGER THAN FICTION.”
It seems that the original owner fail to complete his “car loan” to the said bank, and this is why the car dealer got the car and managed to pass it to Ka Rolan and gave it to him “sa napakamurang halaga lang.”
Dito ay kitang-kita natin kung ano ang talagang layunin ni Antonio Ebangelista at ng mga taong nasa likod niya. Nais lang talaga nilang gawan ng “kUwento” ang mga Sangunian. Alam nilang ang Pamamahala ng Iglesia ay makatarungan na hindi naman “papatulan” kung hindi naman totoo ang ulat. Hindi naman ang mahalaga kanila AE ay kung totoo o hindi ang kanilang “sinasabi” laban sa mga taga-Sangunian, mas gusto pa nila ang talagang hindi naman totoo sapagkat dahil doon ay “walang gagawing hakbang ang Pamamahala” (dahil wala naman talagang katotohanan ang kanilang sinasabi). Pagkatapos ay GAGAMITIN NILA ITO LABAN SA PAMAMAHALA NG IGLESIA. Ipangangalandakan nila na “kita na ninyo hindi humahakbang ang Pamamahala.” Pagkatapos ay ipagsisigawan nila na “Gusto naming sumagot ka sa lahat ng ito kung bakit hindi mo dinidisiplina at ginagawan ng hakbang ang mga ‘tiwaling’ Sanggunian.” Pagkatapos ay hihikayatin nila ang mga kapatid na “Halika kayo magtipon-tipon tayo para pasagutin natin ang Tagapamahalang Pangkalahatan.” Hanggang sa tuluyan na nilang maisakatuparan ang kanilang tunay na layunin, hindi lamang ang mga taga-Sanggunian ang maalis sa posisyon kundi maluklok nila sa tungkuling Tagapamahalang Pangkalahatan ang gusto nila. Hindi ba’t ang mga sinasabi nila at ipinangangalandakan ngayon ay patungo na sa buktot na layuning ito. HUWAG TAYONG PADAYA. ANG PANIG NG PAMAMAHALA ANG PANIG NA SA DIYOS. ANG KUAKALABAN SA PAMAMAHALA ANG PANIG NG KAAWAY NG DIYOS.
MANINDIGAN PO TAYONG LAHAT SA PANIG NG PAMAMAHALA.
