(Topic: Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines)

The July 8, 2014 SWS satisfaction SURVEY showed Binay at +73% net satisfaction which means 82% are satisfied and 9% were not. It is difficult to rely on this kind of survey which was basically subjective in nature. If Binay faces his accusers and answers questions from the media on his role in the over-priced building, people will know more about him. It is most likely his satisfaction rating would go south.The 11- storey parking facility over-price which all started when Binay was still a mayor has not yet come to the full knowledge of people in the provincial areas. The media must keep this scandal alive to get enough traction and national attention.

TELL ME WHO YOUR FRIENDS ARE…is a saying that would apply squarely to Binay. Notice the people on his side. They are like a who's who of corruption past and present. Browse at the column of Ernesto Maceda ("So Young, so Corrupt") going out all the way to praise Binay's speech the other day. Those corrupt Columnists in the payroll of Binay hardly speak of the other side except to discredit them. For the thinking Filipino there is really no need to talk of Binay's crookedness over and over again. Just look at who his friends are and you could tell who he is.

What is startling here is not that the Vice-President is accused of corruption or that he is impotent or unable to debunk the accusations but it is the frequency of the crime and its infectious spread from all sectors and levels of the government. It seems nobody or nothing is free from its corroding influence and you wonder if the people becomes totally immune desensitized to it and reacts no more.

Binay and CJ Corona have so many similarities. Both are excellent lawyers. Both delivered a prepared speech to defend their case and both were afraid to face the hard and piercing questions from senator-lawyers. And both of them are guilty beyond doubt. The former Ombudsman Gutierrez was realistic knowing her case was indefensible she quit. And don't fall for this poor man story, our Mayor was as poor as Binay and only finished grade 2 but because of excellent exploitation of poor voters remained mayor for 20 years despite his being corrupt that he was generally believed to have intentionally burned the Municipal buliding to destroy incriminating evidence when COA was about to look at the municipal records. Binay just resign.

If there are a lot of legislators who are greedy and corrupt you could say the same thing (metaphysical certainty) about law enforcers and men and women who wear black robes. We, as a nation and as a people, have not been really serious about the moral degeneration of legislators, law enforcers, and administrators of justice.

All these corrupted ways enumerated on this article should be grounds enough not to vote for this man and his clan! The Filipino people should have learned their lesson by now. And I quote the article...Given the disastrous presidencies of Ferdinand Marcos, Joseph Estrada, and Gloria Arroyo, it is high time Filipinos begin raising the standards for those vying for the office. Stupid politicians is not the problem, stupid people voting for them is!!

It is getting clearer day-by-day that Veep Binay must be stripped of the cabinet position or, any position of trust reposed by Pinoy. Binay does not deserve them any more..the thieving and plundering of Makati when Binay was Mayor, in the direct testimony given by his former Vice-Mayor Mercado, is all too revealing to be ignored. Binay must be dissociated and cut-off from the matuwid-na-daan team of Pinoy because Binay is: crooked..double meaning, intended.

About Binay: Bandal, Mercado, and Hechanova are Jejomar's accusers. Cayetano, Trillianes and other members of the Blue Ribbon Committee are his inquisitors in the senate. They are his peers. He could do a million speeches but he is answerable to none. The words that come out from his lips would never be challenged. How long he could keep himself out of the limelight depends on how much the senators and accusers turn the heat on Binay and the media keeps the scandal alive.

As of the latest SWS survey, Binay is enjoying an unprecedented public satisfaction rating way ahead of Pinoy and all other national leaders. But this will not last for long as long as the issue of the over pricing of that infamous 11- storey parking facility in Makati. The media will keep it alive. It hasn't gotten traction yet but once it has tapos na si Binay. He might even invite Ding Dong Dantes, Manny Pangilinan (because of team Gilas) to add glamour to his party of personalities and not skills to lead the country.

Thwarting Binay from realizing his plans is not an easy job despite the deluge of testimonies of corruption against him and his family. He has a solid, loyal following that would stick with him come rain or come shine. His campaign chest must be enormous. And if he has been planning to be President since 2001, as one of his accusers said, he must have all the logistics for his election in place. All that is needed is for an election to take place. To stop Binay from crowning himself there must be a non-stop campaign of information against Binay and his family from now until after election day. Given the ADD of filipinos there should be no let up in exposes and revelations. This could be done by filing a Plunder case against the Binays before the Sandigan.

If you want to dig more dirt on Binay, examine the HUDCC budget on how money was spent including all DAP and PDAF money under his office. Disasters is one opportunity he never misses unless political disaster strikes him. Do not expect Binay to appear in the senate and answer questions. That is political suicide. In Japan that is harakiri.

If you don't want Binay to be president, firstly, you have to work that he doesn't get to be a candidate. As it is now, amid those suspicion of anomalies involving him, he is clean. You must worked to have him convicted of a crime(s). And, if harangan man ng sibat, he is still a candidate, the opponents should field a candidate na "mas "mabango" pa sa kanya". Thirdly, make those voters who votes "maski sino" pay taxes (give them jobs) so they will realized what's stolen is his/her aluminum centavo that he worked hard. Then, they will think twice casting their votes to "maski sino" (if they are inclined Binay way). Until then you might as well beat your meat, baka sakali pa.

In the Philippines, those who pretend to be constitutionalists are the true enemies of progress. They are the ones who refuse to accept reality, they spread the germs of inequality, the opportunities of fraud and in the degeneracy of manner and of morals, engendered in both. Ever since, these people are the ones who pretend to be nationalists unmindful of inequality in the society they bring the many under the domination of the few. No nation can preserve its progress in the midst of continual materialism in conspiracy against the desire and duty of peace. An honest president should be supported by the strong passion, understanding and patronage of the people.

Where are the politicians who are after Binay at this time of crisis'? I hope they were out there to help the very poorest Kababayan or are they still busy after Binay? I watched the news all I noticed were the poorest Kababayan crossing the flood traffics to get to a safe place? this is the time those politicians to get themselves out in the floods para matikman nilang ang baho, hirap, lamig, gutom at walang matulungan. I was in Makati one Balikbayan trip, and we were crossing thru the flood area and someone gave us a helping hand, and they were the Binay Family, my family said to me. I did not have TFC Channel before to know all these people to identify someone? My family got discount for staying at Makati Hospital with the help of the Binays, less USA dollars remittance for me.

BINAY is partly a "creation" of Cory Aquino. Without his appointment as OIC of Makati in 1986 by Cory he would most likely have remained an 'unknown quantity.' There are no notable achievements to be credited to him except of his going to China to personally ask forgiveness for Pinoy drug couriers who are caught and scheduled for hanging.

I believe every building in Makati or elsewhere in Pinas is tainted with anomaly. As can be gleaned from outside the timing of investigating this Makati Parking building is fishy and dubious. TRILLANES, a former fugitive is the one spearheading an intense scrutiny for obvious reason he would definitely gain a lot media coverage and POGI points in consonance with his presidential ambition in 2016. The problem with this Mandarambong graduate is that he is too ambitious, pretentious, one-sided, and inconsistent. So far I don't know what are his achievements as a senator.

Mr. Jejomar Binay, if you really are a true Filipino and love the Filipino people, for God sake, do not run for the Presidency. You are not worthy to be elected. Do not let our kababayans suffer from your greediness. Alam mo kung sino ka. Alam mo kung gaano na karami ang ninakaw mo sa mga tao. Makonsiyensa ka naman. Sabihan mo ang mag suporter mo na magising na sa katotohanan at ihinto na ang kahibangan. I will pray hard so God will enlighten you and your family. But if you continue to ruin the lives of the poor Filipino people, I will talk to God to punish you. Pray my dear Kababayans, this is the only thing we can do for now...

The only way VP Binay can be stopped from being elected to the presidency is to convict him of alleged overpricing of buildings construction in which he illegally benefited. Kickbacks (kickintheass or kickintheballs) are crimes of bribery. The contractors are hard nuts to crack because they are equally guilty of the crimes, so cooperation from them are next to impossible. Even promise of immunity from prosecution in the bribery will not be attractive to them because they will be subjected to scrutiny by the taxing authorities on the proceeds of overpricing.

[Someone]: The problem with graft and corruption is not education but retribution or punishment. China has strict laws on public officials when they go wayward. Public officials indicted and found guilty of corruption should not only serve time in prison (because death penalty is outlawed in the country) but banned for life in holding public office (no if's and but's unlike Erap). Corruption is treated lightly by the government and the people look at it dismissively as a way of life. Honestly, we have a rotten and dysfunctional criminal justice system.

Like a broken record, I will say it again and again that Binay will never face his accusers from Makati and inquisitors from the senate without perjuring himself. This guy is a lawyer and a politician. "Hindi yan ang klaseng tao na pahuhuli nang buhay" as they say in Tagalog.

Corona was impeached for not declaring his real assets and liabilities. We need court action to compel the banks to produce Binay's bank records (and all members of his family). This would have been facilitated easily if we had the Freedom of Information Act. In our country, "the government is the problem" (Reagan used to say that). The people would have been the SOLUTION but they went along for a ride or acquiesced.

[Someone] made this outlandish conclusion: "The older Binay is not even a "person of interest" in the Makati overpricing of buildings. That's why Binay has the guts to declare, what the govt. got .." The bidding process began when Binay was the mayor. How could he not be a "person of interest". Why should plunder charges be filed against him if Binay was not? Why should people in the senate waste their time asking Binay if they don't smell something fishy?

This leaves me dumbfounded!

I have read nothing positive about Binay. Is it because he was a nobody until he met his fairy god mother, Corazon Aquino? He became a mayor and eventually a VP. We hardly took notice of him until he built a dynasty that operates like a Mafia dispensing favors while extracting debts and loyalty. And his wealth accumulation activities went ballistic!

In the news: "PNP Lifestyle Check To Start With The "Stars": The "stars" mean police generals. According to this news report, an official who was involved in the EDSA hulidapped has a net worth of P6.1 Million when his salary is only P605,133 (mabuti na lang walang aluminum centavo). Madaling losutan ito ng parak official na ito. He just imitate Binay's answer when he was interviewed where the sources of his P45-50 Million net worth. "Alam mo naman kaming mga Batangueno, kilala sa pagiging matipid at mayroon din namang minana sa mga magulang" (or close to that). No sweat, tapos ang kuwento. BTW, the Q&A took placed when the candidates for president interviewed together on TV a while back.

[Someone]: If you will read between the lines of laws, regulations, decrees, ordinances particularly if it is affecting a person (including in some instances corporations), Article III of the Constitution is always in the middle of it no matter how complicated as it may seemed, the cases and issues to be resolved. And it is illustrated pretty well by the Binays holding offices in the govt. Section 1 alone is suffice to "justify" their situation.

Lighter side of life-In FB, a man in Perth Australia is showing off an iPhone 6 on TV (according to the report he is the first in that Apple store) his newly purchased iPhone 6 when he dropped it. The report says it was OK. I don't how expensive this phone is but they made a big deal about dropping it. But it reminds me though when I was visiting Davao. A friend went shopping at Magno's Dept. store when I saw a golf ball on the counter, picked it up and tried to dribble it. Well, it was not a golf ball at all! it was a lighter. You know, "you broke it, you buy it".

[Someone] still insists in defending the evil Marcoses and deny that he's a hireling. The other day this hireling called the President of the PHL "Sissy". Obviously this blogger is suffering from a disease called "Diarrhea of the Mouth". The mere mention of Aquino's name sends him into spasms that would necessitate calling for an ambulance to drive him to the nearest TOILET where he could vent his rage. He exists in this Forum to badmouth Aquino and anyone saying anything good about Aquino.

Yet this guy made it his religion to discredit Aquino even when the President is earning good reviews in other countries like France. Barbaric? Doesn't he know what the Marcoses did to the Filipinos? He is in denial about the biggest crook that ransacked the PHL and yet he condemns a President who is not even stealing.

Aquino will retire in glorious splendor when he steps down. No worries. Also, he may not even step down. The way things are developing in the PHL there is a 50-50 chance he would be President for another 6 years, until 2022. I would like to see the look on your face WHEN that happens. Quit gossiping.

As far as I am concerned their crimes against the Filipino people are so great they do not even deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt. They should be in jail or hanged. But there they are showing the Filipinos how wealthy and powerful they are. And the 3rd world media dutifully publish their pictures as if they did nothing wrong. BongBong Marcos?

But I am not surprised that you are in agreement with Edward, who said that ALL Filipinos are thieves, dishonest and pimps.

When someone makes this kind of a comment: "I don't see why Pacqiuiao is not a corporation considering his income (2013 $85-90 Million-no. 5 in athletes). I presume you understand the advantage being a corporation filer than an individual filer." it only shows ignorance. Boxers like Pacquiao and Donaire are under Top Rank Promotions run by Bob Arum. Arum arranges the fight and the prize money. Incorporate? Make Manny, chairman of the Board? You are out of your mind! Pacquiao can't be a CORPORATION. Top Rank Promotion is. Pacquiao works for Arum.

He agreed and right away invented a gossip about the DAP being used to place Roxas in the palace. Then he copped out by saying that the idea did not come from him but from the corrupt Columnists that he champions. By making that statement he unwittingly admitted that he is a Hireling whose job is to spread the vicious lies of corrupt Columnists. That's how this Nuisance makes his money.

We have misplaced priorities in the Philippines. We did not foresee the harmful effects of unregulated population growth. We did not provide for an efficient flood control and well designed railway system to bring people to work. We allocated so much pork barrel funds and DAP "savings" on useless, and unquestionable programs of little or no economic benefit. We always underestimate our needs for water, electricity and food.

Will Pacman be China’s Pitchman?

The news was officially announced by China Central Television (CCTV) in Beijing on August 25: Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, the “national fist” of the Philippines and the winner of eight world boxing titles, signed an agreement with the Chinese government “to establish a string of boxing academies” all over China with the aim of helping to “grow the sport in China and provide opportunities for young people to take part."

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
Should President Aquino Get a Second Term as President?

Many Filipinos today are realizing that the single, six-year presidential term as prescribed in the 1987 Constitution is woefully inadequate for a good president like Benigno S. Aquino III. The delegates who wrote that provision in the Constitution must have still been reeling from the almost 20 years of “kleptocratic” rule of strongman Ferdinand Marcos when they decided that one term was enough for any future Philippine president. Four years—the presidential term at the time—would be too short; eight too long. Published 08/23/2014
