(Topic: So, Should Jejomar Binay Be the Next President of the Philippines?)

Mr. J. Binay for president? I hope it won’t materialize. He pretends to be pure, look like different from other corrupt officials but people already knew his doings. The idea of having even Manny Pacquiao to be under his ticket shows only how greed he is to have more fame, power and wealth. At my end any civil servant who wants to stay in power for long time and have dynasty in politics as such, he wants to glorify himself rather than give chance to other aspirants- this is greediness. We civilians let’s learn a lesson before it’s too late we should not give leeway to ambitious man such as him we should have wise choice of candidates and do not be fooled by their words ever.

The Binay family is a very powerful political institution & dynasty; Vice-Pres J Binay, congresswoman wife, senator daughter, mayor son et al. It's a mighty force just like a snowball becoming bigger as it rolls down the hill. In short, there's no stopping them. Right now, he's consolidating a strong party of electable, questionable, rich political allies, oligarch friends, other family members in govt. It's well-fiananced & the strategic logistics are ready & in place. Should the election happen today, rest assured & chances are his party will dominate.

For decades, political dynasties have been ruling the country. Under their reins, the Philippines remains poor and unprogressive. While most of us live in poverty, members of political dynasties and their close associates are enjoying life to the high heavens. Jejomar Binay has built political dynasty in Makati. A very clear indication of a politician who will do everything to enrich himself and his family. Therefore, Jejomar Binay is unfit to become the next President of the Philippines. It is obvious that under his rein, graft and corruption will flourish.

General consensus here is that Binay, as President, would be bad for the country. Agreed. I don't know the man, (I lived in Makati for a number of yrs. before leaving for the States in '73). I don't even remember if I ever heard his name the time I was there. A friend/neighbor, passed the Bar a year or so after I left, eventually worked for Binay. And I asked about that video they filmed where Binay was going around Makati and asking people, as if they were acquainted personally, about their concerns. I asked if Binay really knew those people bcoz he was calling them by their palayaw. "Ano ba, Gorio, kumusta na?" Things like that. That was staged. It's politics, he said. And then this - his whole family in politics. Be very afraid, people.

No politician can claim credit for what Makati is now. It was the foresight and shrewdness of the Ayala y Cia., Elizalde y Cia. and other Spaniards. Check this out. Ayala subdivide the land which everybody thought "would not amount to anything". The sole structure standing then bounded by Ayala, Buendia, Makati Rd., Pasay Rd., P. Tamo, was Elizalde House. Ayala sold "cheap" the subdivided land to corporations (Banks, Manufacturers, Car Dealerships, TV Station, Phil Free Press etc.) on conditions that they will come and build their offices. One is my kano employer where I learned this fact. It was as simple as that. The rest is history.

PNL shd. call for a public/private interview with VP Binay just like what CNN does. VP Binay shd. be heard before the country about his platforms if elected Pres. of the Philippines. VP Binay shd. not save OFWs found guilty of drug trafficking/pushers. VP Binay shd. not get Pacquiao in his senatorial line-up just bec. of his popularity & it only denigrates his character & personality. VP Binay shd. not say impeachment against Pres. DAP is a waste of time. Have you heard VP Binay's side/view about Communist China's intrusion inside the 200 nautical miles EEZ of the Philippines as defined in UNCLOS? Mr. Gibo Teodoro & Gordon are better alternatives in my view.

May tawag sa gaya ni Binay .... switik sa pera. Magaling syang dumiskarte sa pagkakakwartahan. Pero, ang nagtatagal na gawaing masama ay pinuputol ng Dios. Kaya, hindi na sya matutuloy sa hinahangad niyang isang Hari ng bansa pati si Pacquing na hangad ay magpayaman. Hindi nagtatrabaho basta sahod ng sahod tapos magbibise presidente? o senador? Ninanakawan lang ang kaban. Sorry na lang sila!

After 'examining' VP Binay's record using gossips and innuendos as a basis, the author(s) then asked the readers to judge for themselves if he deserves to be the next President of the Philippines! Aree you kidding me? After a biased portrayal of the guy, do you really expect the people to think you are fair and balanced? Get out of here!

Everything is going right for the Binays. Even the birth of a baby. Now that the population of the PHL has hit 100 million the Binays are guaranteed of more squatters and slum dwellers who would vote for the perpetual rule of their dynasty. Well, some people just have all the luck!

I think one of the fundamental questions the Filipino voters ask themselves: How can we prevent the rise of political dynasty which primordial objective is merely to be popular, to accumulate wealth, to be feared, to wield power for its own sake & to be paranoid, or "those going up & down the social-political scale are the most prone to paranoia?" A Western legal scholar will expose the ignorance of some if not all Filipino criminal justice professionals: "Criminal law which is not enforced is much worse than if it was not on the books."

Be careful of who you call a thief/plunderer or whatever. You may end up in far worse situation. Look at those who accuse Marcos of the same and what they did when they took power. Marcos crimes look so pale in comparison. Just look at our debt when he left and look at how much now.

Mark Willinas: One writer said that "in politics there are no permanent friends nor permanent enemies ." Politicians for all you know make strange bedfellows. During presidential elections, politicians enter into unholy alliances with their enemies. Doble cara yan in the vernacular. Escudero endorsed Binay in 2010 but now he is aligned with Mar Roxas. The wild card for 2016 is the possible run of Bongbong Marcos of the Nacionalista Party in tandem with Cayetano or Trillianes (puro bata eto at pogi pa). They have strong appeal among the rural folks and urban as well. People are tired of the old, back slapping politicians like Binay and even Roxas. It is time for the young turks. It is not remote that USA would endorse Bongbong. Marcos BTW is no enemy of the US but a friend.

In the first place Binay has not yet chosen a running mate for the 2016 election. So how can this guy rush to judgment and condemn the kind of govt. Binay will have. Mobocracy? What the hell is that? If it's mob rule then there is no politics involved. Mob rule is anarchy. The survival of the fittest and strongest. That's no government.

This statement: "Vice-president Binay's top choice of running mate in 2016 presidential election is a crystal-clear indication that he will establish a dangerous & extreme form of democratic governance: mobocracy, the politics of mob rule, or dregs of society." is purely speculative. All political parties intend to achieve majority so that their agenda could be fulfilled. It is hard to rule under a divided govnment and everyone knows that except the man who made the above comment. Neither does he understand the true meaning of dregs of society (the least valuable part of anything).

If you talk to ordinary people in the streets they have not made up their mind who would they vote for 2016. Because of media exposure we think Binay is the front runner. The pulse of the nation has not been measured yet.

When I was "young", I was privy to review monthly expense statements for the company's Regional office vs. it's authorized budget. Then came the annual company's family picnic. So little is left in the budget for a burger, a hot dog, a can of soda and a small bag of chips for each attendees (the 2 hundred plus employees and family members) for a whole days activities. I told the big honchos why limit the food? It should be opened grills! No money, they said. So I point out one item in the budget ($5 G's at the time) hardly used. It took me only a couple of secs to convinced them to use the $5 Gs! (actually less was used) Every one were happy-happy in the picnic. It's true. Do you see the DAP & PDAF in above? Of course, you wish if the DAP & PDAF were only used honestly.

Mahirap palagpasin itong katangahan at kamangmangan ni someone incorporated at sa huling pagkakataon ipapasak natin sa kokote niya ang katotohan. Siya nga pala napapaligiran ang bahay ko ng salamin, at mga libro, garden kaya hindi ko na kailangan pang manghiram ng salamin. According to US historian (take note Ateneo eel-gle kuno), the Americans had three republics: the first, a loose confederation of former British colonies (1776-1789) ; the second republic ended April 9, 1865, with the South's surrender; the third Lincoln's republic was transformed into national security state.

No worries for the Arsobispos. RH Bill or not, filipinos will make babies. Maybe by next month the population will hit 200 MILLION. So if I may ask the Arsobispos, NOW WHAT?

I think it is not wise to be optimistic when it comes to corrupt leadership of contemporary Filipino politicians. I think Apolinario Mabini, the brains of the Katipunan, had something to say why the Revolution was a failure during his time. The Filipino will never know how much is the amount of kick back or corruption generated by President Aquino III's misuse of DAP & other demi-slaves-silver-tougues-felons-politicians falsification of PDAP. I think you will perish like slaves without transparency, legitimacy & accountability or constitutional impeachment in a third world democratic governance. Muntik na ninyo akong madengoy, Manoy!

How can you say that President Cojuangco Aquino III's political slogans are not propaganda, & his political leadership is not unprincipled when you hear the cry of the poor Filipino public students or the public school teachers asking for books, tables, & other educational resources to save Philippine democracy from ignorance, stupidity, folly & demoralization in an era of cutting-edge technological diffusion of knowledge? Can you ignore the vivacious defiance of the Filipino people about the maggoty of Congress & Aquino III's presidency? I think the only truth that will set you free is to impeach PNOY under oath to determine if he never engaged in public affairs for his own interest, avarice & dangerous lust for power.

The Iglesia ni Cristo is celebrating its centennial year. Some believe that this religious group does not qualify to fall under the category of a Christian denomination. They say that INC members are not Christians because some guy's neighbor said so. Others believe this group is more of a cult (followers of Manalo like David Koresh of Branch Davidians). The reason why INC adopted this acronym is if C were replaced with Kristus (a Greek word) people might mistake the group for an indelible ink! Hi hi hi

Someone's limited understanding of the evolution of US Constitution is an indication of his ignorance, stupidity & unbounded intellectual barbarism that can't be cured by spoon-feeding elitist Catholic educational institution like Ateneo University, Manila, Philippines. Why? It is common knowledge that the US Constitution is the most debated & examined document in American history, according to a scholar. I do agree with an American historian that "the American people have not yet done. History is still happenning. That is the meaning of the blank space," or the external or internal substance of the Constitution. I also agree with Toqueville that "America is great because she was good."

Islam acknowleges Jesus Christ, Judaism does the same thing except Hinduism. INC recognizes Jesus but not as God but as a human being. INC questions the divinity of JC . Islam and Judaism do not question the credential of JC as a prophet.There is but one church built by JC and that is the RCC. Other religious groups we have today broke away from that Church founded by JC who annointed Peter his successor. INC does not recognize apostolic succession. In fact INC adopts familial succession ( just like a political dynasty) MANALO NGAYON, MANALO BUKAS.

I think the PNL thesis is straight forward: the Philippine government is govern by well-known corrupt political dynasties or elites. According to a scholar, "When one has once accepted and absorbed evil (i.e., the evil political practices of any elected Filipino tyrant accepted by the voters) it no longer demands to be believed." Why? "Evil becomes your daily practice." I think President Aquino III's constitutional ignorance, stupidity, arrogance & folly can be assumed as constitutional dictatorship: excess of the presidential power to undermined the principle of separation powers in constitutional government. Impeach or not to impeach PNOY, impeachment process will be based on firmly grounded agreed-upon facts, evidence, constitutional principles, etc.

I think Professor Mel STA MARIA's constitutional analysis of the proper role of the Supreme Court or the Judiciary in a tripartite representative government is short-sighted. According to Atty. SANTA MARIA, Associate SC Justice Frankfurter was a conservative & not an activist judge on the bench. But Justice Frankfurter's judicial philosophy as a member of the Warren Court will expose Prof. SANTA MARIA's limited knowledge of the "normal sience of the law in the midst of contesting paradigms." The view that the SC is an activist or liberal depends upon "the rhythms of change in society & culture, & the prevailing proposition that in a constitutional system all citizens are entitled to the benefits of formal equality."

I think it is reasonable not to use the symbol of Aquino's dynasty (Yellow Ribbon-Liberal-Laban Party), as a proof of Filipinos solidarity on July 28, 2014 President Aquino III's SONA. It seems that it is not easy for the majority of the Filipino voters to be united when there is no agreed-upon legitimate political institution to cultivate. Why there is a need for the re-emergence of Filipino nationalism if the president & commander-in-chief of the AFP is reluctant to challenge the threat of Communist Chinese in his own turf? Do you still need another fake modern Filipino hero to be created & blessed by religious fanatics & ignorant voters? What would Apolinario Mabini, Andres Bonifacio & Rizal say about your elitist education? Pagandahan lang pala ng damit ang SONA-FAMAS celebration.

A local writer says, "Today, Pres. Benigno Aquino III is supposed to make his 5th SONA, but what can we expect from Mr. Aquino who has failed miserably in the last 4 years in office. In his last SONA, he claimed that by next year we would be self-sufficient in rice. But last week it was reported that we’re importing 400,000 metric tons of rice. So this President lied to the Filipino people because what he said in his last SONA does not reflect today’s reality." My take: I am 500% agree with this statement. Not only that this noynoying Aquino is a liar, he too is the greatest bribe-giver in Pinas history, a crook.

AS I SEE IT: There is no chance for Corona to find enough evidence to accuse Aquino of malversation as soon as BS Aquino leaves office. Corona' s only chance is to bribe now 97 congressmen to write the articles of impeachment and 16 senators acting as judges while Aquino is in office. Accuse Aquino of malversation of what? That is wishful thinking. Corona would be looking for a needle in the haystack.

Stop blaming the poor and calling them ignorant. Let's review the process. Let us examine the how a candidate must qualify. Put a maximum donation an entity could give towards a party and the candidate. This should prevent them from heavily influencing the candidates decision making when they get the position. Sources of campaign funds must be declared. Each candidate should receive a similar allowance from the public treasury for campaign use and must be accounted for.

To [someone] it is not right for the president to criticize SC ' s decision. That is democracy in action. What is not right is for judges to criticize the actions of the president. The court would lose its impartiality. The court should always be seen by the public as a fair arbiter. The justices have their own personal views that they have to keep close to their chests. Common sense tells justices to zip their mouths from making unsolicited comments. You live in CA man and you have never seen Congress criticize the president? WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING ALL THE TIME? Obama does it too.

My recollection: I was still residing in the Bay Area when I heard this news! Sabi ni Drilon to screener doon sa SF int'l airport, 'hindi ba ninyo ako kilala? Dignitary ako!" But the screener retor-ted to Drilon something like this, 'Sir, whoever you are, I am just doing my job...you have to take off your shoes.' OMG, this is the kind of Pinas official we do have? Talagang sick man and laughing stock of Asia!

Kaya kayo pinagtatawanan ng buong mundo dahil ibinandila ninyo na ang Ateneo University, Manila, Philippines "produces more honest & intelligent leaders & graduates." Hindi ko kailangan ang turo ng Ateneo University mentors lang dahil maraming universities sa mundo. Nananatiling third world country pa rin ang Pilipinas kaya pinagtatawanan ng buong mundo ang mga nagtapos sa Ateneo University: "O stupid & tasteless age" of corrupt Philippine third world rulers [Catullus]. Magturo kayo ng karapatdapat upang maiwasan ang mga prudukto ninyong magnanakaw Philippine treasury tulad ng produkto ninyong nakakulong na si Gloria Arroyo. Ateneo ka lang pala nagaral pinagyabang mo pa.

I do agree (100%) with the comments of UCCP Bishops on President Aquino III's arrogant defense of DAP, which tainted with corruption. The poor Filipino public students will stay away from the teachings of Jesus Christ if their cries for social-economic-political justice will be ignored by their leaders. "The confession of ignorance, brutish stupidity & folly of corrupt Filipino leaders are the finest testimonies of judgment, or justice itself [Montaigne]. Repent or resign fake icon of PH democracy, PNOY.

Comparing PNoy to other previous presidents he is the best among them. In only four years Philippines acquired two relatively new frigates, 6 or 8 modern helicopters, soon to acquire 12 modern jet fighters, and the first time the country was cited to be have a growth rate more than any country in Asia, survived the strongest recorded storm in history with the economy relatively intact, has removed a corrupt Chief Justice, imprisoned a president and 3 corrupt senators. Marcos was president for 20 yrs. and GMA 10 years and we got only a second-hand overpriced non-military helicopter. At may 2years pa siya.

"Aquino and Abad used DAP funds in the 2013 election." - by Rigoberto Tiglao of Manila Times. Read the 1st comment by someone why Pres. DAP went on sabbatical before considering himself running for President of the Philippines. This event was in the news when he went somewhere in the Visayas for weeks of isolation.

According to some critics in this forum, Prof. Mel STA MARIA's (FEU-Ateneo) essay on US SC Associate Justice Brennan Jr.'s evolving theory of constitutional interpretation is well-researched: "The genius of the Constitution rests not in any static meaning..." Mockingmaya is not a lawyer but he/she doesn't agree with stupid Ateneo apologists that Prof. STA MARIA's essay is well-researched. Let me expose your ignorance Ateneo law students: The Justice Brennan's notion that the Constitution must adapt to changing times was borrowed from Sir Matthew Hale that "it was the Nature Laws that they are accommodated to the conditions, exigencies & conveniences of the people..." Kaya kayo pinagtatawanan ng buong mundo kulang kayo sa basa.

Because China's incursion into the West Phil. Sea is an interesting discussion, equally important to us as the Phil. presidency perhaps, let me go back and say why I mentioned other ancient civilizations. Deo, in his posting that the Chinese as a "crop of ancient people", older than the pyramids of Egypt, etc., (the Stonehenge of England is older than the pyramids, btw), seemed too imply that bcoz they were that ancient, they "probably" had seen/laid claim on them first. Historians use words & phrases like, "probably, perhaps, might, could have" so we should exercise due diligence & apply common sense/logic the best we could. This might be relevant - that modern human (Homo sapiens) were found much earlier in the Phils. than in China. How about that?

Mahirap palagpasin ang sinulat nitong fanatical follower ni PNOY na ang kahulugan ng yellow daw ay tungkol lang awiting yellow brick road at itinatali pa sa puno ang ribbon na yellow kapag papauwi na ng bahay ang bagong laya na bilango. Well, hindi mo kailangang maging teacher at abogago na nagtapos sa mamahaling university tulad ng pinagaralan ni PNOY-Yellow-Ribbon propaganda. Itinuro ng teacher ko noon sa Malinta Elementary school na ang kahulugan ng yellow ay marami: Mongoloid, Monggolian, Oriental, Asiatic, Chinese [Yellow-Cojuangco], chicken, melo-dramatic, etc. Huwag kayo magtuturo dito sa forum kung wala kayong lisensiya. Kaya kayo pinagtatawan ng buong mundo.

Masaya na si mockingmaya na ang kanyang kuro-kuro sa PNL ay nababasa ng someone incorporated. I think political criticism is an intellectual virtue. It is no different from reading or self-cultivation which is considered as a sound diversion. According to one of my favorite scholars, self-cultivation will intruct you how to live well & how to die well. Nagpapasalamat ako sa Republika Ng Pilpinas Na Pambansang Lupon Ng Mga Guro sabili nila teacher daw ako: PAGPAPATUNAY: "Ito ay nagpapatunay na ang GURO na may pangalan at lagda sa Kard na ito ay nakarehistro na sa Pambansang Lupon ng mga Guro..." The best teacher for me is JESUS CHRIST, who was crucified, martyred & led humanity from the wilderness.

Someone kontento na kami dito at kahit hangang dito na lang kami kamo wala kang karapatan upang bawalan kaming magbigay ng kuro-kuro sa PNL forum. Hindi payabangan dito ng diploma (Ateneo) sa forum. Kung gusto mong igalang ka matuto kang gumagalang sa iba. Hindi sa ayaw ko si PNOY ninyo. Hindi magkakahalintulad ang ating pananaw sa mundo. Pinagyabang mo na nagaral ka sa Ateneo University, Manila. Marahil nabasa mo sa Ateneo library ang tungkol kay Thomas More: "martyr, saint, scholar, judge, lawyer, Chancellor of the Realm & murdered by the government because he would not speak the words that the king commanded." Ang PNL ay isang malayang political forum. I do respect your opinions. Peace!

Remember, Nobody is Perfect even the SC. And everybody is entitled to our own opinion because we are a free country..free free free. So, what's that issue? The president should shut his mouth and cannot argue?. They are both in the same level. PNoy is a kind who cannot just accept the wrong tone and sit if SC say "sit down and shut your mouth". As I said, be positive and carriers of good news.

[Someone]: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1). We know Jesus is the Word because John 1:14 tells us, "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." God the Father was not made flesh; it was Jesus, as even Iglesia admits. Jesus is the Word, the Word is God, therefore Jesus is God". Right! and only narrow-minded people (INC and Jehovahs Witness) will disagree and find that Chapter/Verse very difficult to understand.

Somebody opines, "As his continuing drop in ratings suggests, Noynoy has ceased to be relevant in the lives of people. Life goes on -- in comfort for some, in misery for many -- even without Noynoy. In Tacloban, for instance, the true state of life there is continuing to live in a tent without water and light, no matter what Noynoy says." My take: This is the story of tenacious human survival on the part of victims and 'GARAPALAN' on the part of our national leader who thinks he is always right & in-fallible.

[Someone] opines that we should be more concerned about criminality with the use of marijuana (or legalization thereof). There is no correlation between the rise in criminal rates with the use of marijuana. There are 11 million marijuana users in the US.This man from arina-bulalak city got confused with shabu which is the preferred addictive drug by the youth, less educated and unemployed adult in the Philippines. If there was a threat to society about marijuana do you think it will ever be legalized in different states? COME ON!

On marijuana: Calm down [someone]. There are no published studies yet regarding the long term effects of recreational marijuana on the health of the user. The concern of parents is that marijuaana use may serve as a gateway for harder addictive drugs usage of heroin or cocaine. Let us wait for medical reports coming from Colorado and Washington where MarieJane is legal 20 years from now. You would be 90 something by then sporting Depends!

[Someone] : Philippine style politics is no different from the kinds of politics practiced all over the world. Personal interests is way ahead of country's interests. I have yet to see a ruler or president leave office poorer than when he got in. Politicians do understand that political power is economic power. It is the same as saying spiritual power is both economic and political power. Just look at INC. "Iglesia Ni Cristo's (Church of Christ) Philippine Arena, a $200m indoor theatre that can house over 50,000 people with a dome spanning 3.6 hectares (36,000sq meters" WOW!

Speaking of the INC. INC members can't join labor unions and they vote in blocks during election time. INC members are compelled to give tithes and attendance is compulsory (samba) . They avoid court sessions. "The Church now has at least 2.25 million followers, with members comprising at least 110 nationalities in 6 continents. " Look at that power. SCARY! If [someone] watches TFC he is not aware that host Punto por Punto Anthony Taberna is a kapatid (that is how INC members call each other). YO WHAAZUP BRO?

The more na babanggain at kakasuhan ni PNoy ang mga kasamaan ng mga hudas na naglustay ng pera ng bayan, the more tlagang dadami ang magkakalat sa kalye. Ang mga kapanalig at mga bayaran para siraan si PNoy ay hindi titigil hanggat hindi sila nakakarma. Mga galit na artificial dahil sa bayad na at galit na sukdolan dahil sa naunsyaming delihensya ay hindi matutulog. iSino ba magwawagi, ang masama o kabutihan? May mga nakita na tayo na ang masama ay napaparusahan. Kaya tumigil na kayong mga magugulo. Para sa bayan ang ipinaglalaban ng Pangulo.

Mockingmaya said: "I disagree with Professor Mel STA MARIA that President Aquino III's critique of the Supreme Court is within constitutional bound." Restated Aquino is violating the constitution by criticizing SC's decision. This is democracy amigo. Congress people criticize the President and you are telling us that Aquino's lips must be zipped? Aquino should be impeached for that? Are you a teacher or a poor student of political science? A bald eagle with no feathers, I guess!

You hardly see me commenting here at the forum only once in a while. We have to get deeper in what is going on in PH. As I recall before Martial Law I do not attend so much rallies but I do all the time in my own university (UST) to protect our students on Tuition Fee being increase from time to time. I do peacefully and compromised with the administration if ever they increase. As a matter of fact I lead when they attempt to expel most of the Officers of most of the colleges by then late Dean Andress Narvasa. This includes Dan Domingo and former Sen. Joey Lina. It was me who brought the jeep inside the Main Building. That was the time they ask me to talk with them.

Cont.. Inside the building somebody shouted Burn the Jeep, that were the Administration started to panic. I told them not to expel our leaders as there will be no other universities or colleges will accept them. They are to graduate that year. I have to bring out the jeep and some of our students get mad at me, I do not condone violence. Those who read this comments from UST in 1971 will know what I did anyway. In spite of the headache I gave to my Alma Matter , Regent Loresco of College of Architecture & Fine Arts ask me to teach Architecture in our college. KM Chairman NiloTayag , knows me very well. Violence can never solved the problem. Marami diyan sa ating binabayaran noon sumama sa rally at gayon din gayon Before Martial Law subok na kami dito.

It is about time that the people should know the depth of corruption in the judiciary particularly among judges and justices. These people are behaving like GODs (they even refuse to submit theirs SANLs). Because they have the last word, judges and justices are worst than dictators. SC should not be shielded from criticism in the same manner we do not hold punches criticizing the president or people in Congress. Why the uneven treatment? It is wrong however for justices to speak on issues not brought to the court for they lose their impartiality this way. THIS IS THE LOGIC HERE!

China’s Military Base on Mabini Reef Violates the Philippine Constitution

While searching for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 on March 11, 2014, a Philippine Air Force plane flying over the Kalayaan Island Group in the West Philippine Sea sighted Chinese reclamation activity in the Mabini Reef of the Kalayaan Island Group within the 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Philippines. His aerial photographs were transmitted to the Philippine government for analysis. Published 07/10/2014


Napoles PDAF/NGO Scandal: What is Ten or Fifteen Billion Pesos Really Worth?

For those who have been following the Janet Lim-Napoles PDAF/NGO* scandal these past months, it is easy to get caught up in all the rhetoric—the words and phrases repeated day after day. Words like "ten billion" or "fifteen billion" have turned into something akin to "gray" background noise.  Words devoid of any real meaning or significance. So let us try to put back some meaning into those trite and often-repeated phrases in order to better understand some of the far-reaching ramifications of Napoles' actions. Published 06/30/2014
How could they not have known that the Napoles NGOs were fake?

With Senator Bong Revilla already in police custody in Camp Crame and Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Juan Ponce Enrile set to join him any day now, people need to start asking tough questions going forward. The privilege speeches of the senators along with the histrionics that accompanied them are thankfully now over so we can all address this issue more objectively. Published 06/21/2014
The Self-Perpetuating Elite of the Philippines

In an essay published in the July 1968 issue of the American magazine Foreign Affairs, a novice Philippine senator described his country as “a land in which a few are spectacularly rich while the masses remain abjectly poor. . . . a land consecrated to democracy but run by an entrenched plutocracy… a people whose ambitions run high, but whose fulfillment is low and mainly restricted to the self-perpetuating elite…a land of privilege and rank – a republic dedicated to equality but mired in an archaic system of caste.” Published 06/14/2014
PHL Legislators Implicated in the Napoles PDAF Scam Face Definite Jail Time...Maybe

In the United States former four-star General and until recently Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki was forced to resign as head of the VA by the ongoing healthcare scandal that has enveloped that agency. While one can safely assume that Shinseki was not involved in the actually transgressions being investigated, the fact that he headed the agency meant he had command responsibility over its entire staff. And their wrongful acts, whether he knew about them or not, cost him his job. That is the way things work in properly functioning democracies. In the Philippines however, things tend to get a little unusual. Published 06/03/2014
Why All the Fuss? We Knew They were Corrupt Anyway!

So finally the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. But we Pinoys should not be surprised at all. We all know how corrupt our country is. Even before former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was accused of electoral sabotage and the misuse of public funds in 2011; even before Joseph “Erap” Estrada—an earlier president was convicted of plunder by the Sandiganbayan in 2007; even before Ferdinand Marcos, a president-turned-dictator, was booted out of the country along with his family and cronies twenty-eight years ago; we Pinoys knew they were corrupt.

The Case of Denise Cornejo and Cedric Lee, a Litmus Test for Pnoy and Philippine Justice

Now that the star attraction in the alleged Vhong Navarro rape incident is in police custody, the upcoming trial will be a litmus test for the Aquino administration as well as the Courts. The almost universal perception is that Philippine justice is broken and does not work. Laws are applied inequitably with the wealthy and powerful living almost above the law, while the common "tao" finds himself at the losing end of cases that usually drag on for years.

Obama's Visit a Shot in the Arm for a Struggling Ally

After essentially showing the American Military the door in the early '90s, Filipinos have of late come to the realization that they need their "Uncle Sam" more than they thought they did. And back then the United States was also more than happy to oblige as their Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission had been closing down hundreds of military installations all across the USA.
