Isn’t this laying it on too thick, VP Binay

Just my opinion

By Raïssa Robles

During his May 27 visit to the Makati Stock Exchange, Vice-President Jejomar Binay brought his own food of paksiw na isda and spam, according to business gossip columnist Vic Agustin. This was despite the fact that there was a western buffet prepared for that occasion – Binay ringing the trading bell for his ardent supporters, the Limlingan couple, who were launching an online trading company.

Agustin noted that Binay was apparently “still a country boy in his taste buds.”

UPDATE as of 8:46 pm June 3, 2014

This article is now being flooded with hundreds of comments coming from only four or five IP addresses but using different “names” or handles  The comments are all anti-Binay and are calling him horrible names without presenting any proof or arguing their case. A few are even mocking him for his color.

And it is for these reasons that I am not posting these comments.

I am appealing to those who are doing this to stop. This is not a site for propagandizing but for thoughtful discussions.

Pls. only use one name or handle.

Whoever is doing these things, if you want to join the discussion in Cyber Plaza Miranda tell me and post it as a comment.

Thanks.

I can strongly smell the hand of a PR man here – in order to project Binay as a simple man with simple tastes eating simple food. A man of the masses. When he has left that lifestyle over two decades ago.

When I interviewed VP Binay on a weekday shortly before his June 2010 inauguration, I was astounded by his huge, fully air-conditioned dining room.

And by the bountiful breakfast there – like a hotel buffet complete with ham, bacon and cake for dessert.

I was astounded because back in the mid-1980s when I used to cover him as a human rights lawyer he was anything but wealthy.

But now, he lives like a very wealthy man.

But now, he has an industrial-type kitchen which can handle large receptions. I know because I was made to pass through the kitchen door. You can take a peek at his kitchen below. Here are some of the pictures I was able to take of his dining room,

I believe his huge long dining table and fully carved chairs are made of hard wood like narra and each place setting has a large brass under plate. The side tables have various old religious icons on display and the walls have several large paintings.

Which is why I think projecting VP Binay as a country boy is laying it on too thick.

    In preparation for the issuance of warrants of arrest, the Sandiganbayan’s(SB) fifth division who is trying the plunder and graft cases against jinggoy, et al. issued this afternoon a hold-departure order against the said accused.

    The other divisions of the SB trying the cases against enrile and bong are expected to follow suit in the coming days.

    Meanwhile, the PNP custodial center has shown to the media the new detention facility purportedly for the 3 senators, et al, which is a lot more convenient than the usual jail.

    The one hectare compound supposedly for the administration and quarters of PNP senior officials was converted into a likely detention facility. Each 32-square meter room has a single-sized bed, kitchen sink with cabinets, ceiling fan, side table and a comfort room with a handheld shower and standard toilet. One of the four rooms, however, has two bunk beds (for romeo and juliet?)

    Why spent public funds for the lawmakers and their cohorts who regularly robbed the public of billions of taxpayers’ money? They already lost their “honorable” title for their dastardly acts and should be detained in ordinary jails infested with rats – to which they now become.

      Ganda! @Kalahari.

      To answer your question is because: our justice system is used to selective adm of justice! One for the rich and VIPs who are few; and another for the ordinary suspects who are into thousands.

      That’s is the perversion under a democratic form of government.

      A mixture of the ‘so many’ and the so few ‘elite’ ruling the state comes an oligarchical form of government.

      Now, our democracy is just a facade of oligarchy. One cause is: rule of selective justice.

      that’s to show that the custodial center is homely and not like a concentration camp. and that people sent to custodial center should not be fearful for they will not be eaten alive by bedbugs! and will not die like those people sent to concentration camps where only hard labor waits them.

      I dont begrudge PNP for building the center. the new intake of graduate engineers needed the work experience under the strict supervision of their mentors. it’s possible that not much fund was used.

      Tama po kayo maganda nga ang detention cel na ito dahil opisina dapat ito nang mga opisyal nang PNP at sana hindi sila pumayag na ipagamit ito dahil kasong Pandarambong ang mga kaso nang ipipiit at baka sila mahawaan kapag nalipat na mga ito sa totoong kulungan pagdating nang panahon. Bago, maluwag at maganda ito kong ikumpara sa mga temporary shelter nang mga biktima nang bagyong Yolanda at nagsisiksikan pa sila donn hanggang ngayon? Ano ba naman kaalaman mayroon ang Gobyerno natin at binibigyang halaga pa mga may kasong Pandarambong? Dapat lahat ay pantay pantay, mayaman man o mahirap, may mataas na katungkulan man o wala dapat magdusa kaparihas nang ordinaryong nasasakdal…
      Sarap magnakaw nang Milyones kapag ganito nangyayari? Bakit kasi inunang binigyan nang special attention si janet lim napoles kaya ngayon problema na naman ang darating na mga may kaparihong kaso at marami pa sila? ha ha ha hanip na problema…wheelchairssssss ihanda na rin…..saka neck bracesssssss…. saka ospital magpagawa na rinnnnnn….

    selfies signal Bong’s presumption of being guilty as charged by the same people who elected him.

    Bong Revilla went around Manila to explain his predicament with the people who elected him.
    The sparse crowd present were obviously busy flashing selfies with Bong on their smartphones. Bong should have been embarrassed by the reception of the crowd, more interested in taking his pictures rather than applauding his speech.

      people will soon be showing bong’s picture to scare children that the same thing will happen to them if they become senator and steal funds. that they’ll be forced to smile and pose for selfies, even if they dont want too. forced to be nice to people, forced to show and exposed themselves to strangers they would rather die than be seen. when all they wanted to do is have quiet time with colleagues drinking in expensive bars.

    …direct evidence. What about ‘circumstantial evidence,’ isn’t it there?

    “Enrile told the court that his physical condition was “poor and frail” and “is requiring constant medical attention.”

    …poor and frail? …rich and strong.

    Jinggoy: “no probable cause’. ‘hearsay.’ BenHur Luy’s documents…hearsay? That is direct evidence.

    CARPER to expire June 30 this year.

    “THE Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms Law (Carper) will expire on June 30 but land acquisition and distribution under the law will continue, Malacañang said on Saturday.

    Some farmer groups fear that the expiration of the law will halt the distribution of land that may adversely affect poor farmers who rely on parcels of land they till.

    But deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the President certified the CARP extension bill as urgent but Congress failed to act on it.

    Despite this development however, Valte said the Department of Agrarian Reform continues to issue Notices of Coverage for land distribution.”

    I am biased on this program ever since. Lands were distributed under this Program, yet the country imports and of course…SMUGGLE rice from abroad. And other edible products. Why is that?

    Farmers now ‘owners’ many of them are selling the lands distributed to them and instead prefers to WORK ABROAD…not as farmers anymore. This selling violates the law of the Program. I never heard nor read anyone farmer etc. caught and prosecuted. Sleeping on the Agrarian Program?

    Fertilizers…expensive or not? It is expensive. Ask Joc Joc Bulante. Do farmers get enough of fertilizers? I doubt, reason why farmers instead sell the land and work abroad or never work as farmer anymore.

    When is the gov’t going to pay the landowners for the lands taken away from them? Nada! Aerial surveying of lands not titled under Torrens System…when? The Dept. stopped it…No funds? So, landowners are not paid until now, NO TITLE under Torrens System.

    What a program indeed!

    Time to ponder!
    Are CPMers really concern with the state of the nation or are only good with talking points?

    Recently in the news were reports of mystery killings of various members of society!
    The subject of “murder” discussed lengthily by CPMers involved a Revilla, not necessarily for national interest but probably mainly due to the name of the victim and accused. None has been discussed on crime sprees of non political citizens. When politicians are the subject of this blog, opinions clogged the site. Crime events that could have national implication is seldom discussed.

    Bringing me to raise this question:
    Is there a political angle on current killing spree by hired killers?

    Race car driver, Hotel owner, Pangasinan mayor, BIR investigator and others are recent victims of guns for hire.

    Why did I ask this question? Before martial law was imposed by Marcos, violence marred various sectors of society including the fake ambush of Enrile to condition the mind of the people to accept a coming certain event, martial law.

    President Aquino’s government is he’ll vent on eradicating graft and corruption, shaming and charging those documentedly involved. Not a secret to everyone is that his preferred successor is Mar Roxas who is DILG secretary with overall control of LGU and PNP directly responsible for peace and order all over the country.

    Coincidentally, like during martial law, Enrile was in the news daily due to PDAF scam. Honasan, mastermind of Cory Aquino coup, has also been incriminated in PDAF scam. An Estrada as well as a Revilla were also named in the corruption. The names have been linked to quite a few violent crimes before but never proven, including the Dacer murder and some killings in Cavite.

    Few days ago, Vice Mayor Isko Moreno talked publicly that he and Manila Mayor Erap are tired of those stubborn people indiscriminately violating city laws that prompted him to say “do not be surprised to hear in the news that certain personalities suddenly disappear”. This is not a veiled threat because it was declared publicly.

    Binays have been deluged with political news exposing their unexplained wealth without response.
    UNA political party was formed by the triumvirate Binay, Estrada and Enrile. This early UNA endorsed Vice President Binay for president, most probably against Roxas, most probably PNoy’s endorsed successor. Binay has always praised Noynoy Aquino despite his well known tirades against the administration’s policy, prompting Cong Erice to call VP Binay a “double cara”.

    Since it is under Aquino administration this escalating breakdown of peace and order occurs, naturally his political opponents or those decimated by his corruption crusade would blame him.

    But, is PNoy really the target? Or is it conditioning the mind of the people that his administration and caretakers were responsible for failed peace and order so the people must prepare for a certain coming event, 2016 presidential election

    Is it far fetched to ask that DILG Sec Roxas is the”indirect discreditation target” on the deteriorating peace and order condition from various “unreasonable killings”?

    Martial law vis a vis 2016 election.

      Rene-Ipil says:

      I think the most debilitating factor in the current wave of violent crimes in the country concerns the intramurals between the PMA and PNPA graduates, and the quarrel between DILG Secretary Roxas and PNP Chief Purisima.

      Roxas ordered that promotions and assignments in PNP should be based on merits and performance regardless of the person’s alma mater. Of course, Purisima and the PMA faction silently opposed Roxas’ command. The PNPA faction is demoralized resulting to work inefficiency. All the top positions in the
      PNP hierarchy with one or two exceptions, are now occupied by PMAers. And considering that all local chiefs of police and station commanders, with few exceptions in large urban cities, are PNPA graduates, it is not surprising that violent crimes abound nationwide.

      It now becomes appropriate that the bill approved by the senate in 1999 to return or devolve police functions to LGUs be revived. This would eliminate the top heavy positions mostly manned by PMA graduates who should be retired or returned to the military. The NBI, which is national in character, should be organized into an effective agency similar to FBI so that high profile cases would be investigated by the NBI.

      BTW Binay proposed in 2001 that the police be completely returned to the mayors.

    The article “Under the stewardship of the Aquino administration, the Philippines has presided over an unprecedented period of macro-economic buoyancy and political stability, which has, in turn, revived domestic and international business confidence in the Southeast Asian nation.”

    According to Hillary Clinton: “The difference between a politician and a statesman is that a politician thinks about the next election while the statesman think about the next generation”

    In the context of the PDAF scam that is embroiling the country, let me rephrase this to: “The difference between a politician and a statesman in the Philippines is that a traditional politician (trapo) thinks about his pocket while the statesman think about the next generation”. (Apology to Hillary Clinton)

    I believe this community of CPMers can play a big part in making this happen by exposing the “nation-tearers” and supporting the “nation-builders” of the Philippines.

    Reliable Info

    Media men friendly(whatever it means) on the political push of VP Jojo have been ordered to stop releasing news report from the Binays.

    Gagging reporters was the marching order after Neal Cruz PDI column. Same reason, Abigail Binay did not respond to the charge of Cong Erice that he has evidence on the Wormgate. Toby Tiangco was tasked to keep attacking the detractors with deceiving facts.

    Usually high profile politicians respond immediately to negative comments by well known columnists like Cruz. Silence is the answer to Cruz. Remember the talking points of Binays to questions related to the source of their riches.

    Wondering when a courageous individual would dig into VP Binay’s closet. Since he has already declared his intention to run for President in 2016 years ago, i think it is fair game that investigation on his wealth should have commenced also years ago.

    For starters, it would seem that his SAL rose from 8 Million pesos to 58 Million pesos when he became a public official, according to PDI, Neil Cruz June 13, 2014:

    “Then there is his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth, which shows that his net worth grew from P8 million to P58 million when he became a public official. Jojo Binay has no known business. His income is supposed to have come only from his salary as a public official. So where did all that wealth come from?

      That 8million pesos starting asset was questionable since it was adjusted inflation asset of his house in Makati. He declared that long after he became mayor.

      He has a house in Makati probably worth less than a million pesos during martial law. He drove an old beaten car. He did not own any condo unit back then nor a big ranch in the province.

      At any rate, 50 million increase in assets as government employee is impossible. that is not calculating the 60 million assets of Nancy Binay who worked as OJT in their family household.

        The complaint further alleged that as of December, 2013, Gov Adiong has accumulated P243M in assets such as a construction firm, a hotel and condominium, apartments, dormitories, a convention center and even a rice mill (PDI 6/11/14)

        In due time, someone with a heart of a lion who loves this country, will come out with a signed complaint against vp binay for unexplained wealth grossly disproportionate with his salary in the government, complete with documents showing ownership of huge assets in his name or from his nominees or transferees.

          vander, previous commenters reported that the binays have not a bakery in makati. if there is bakery or bakeries, it’s most likely run by corporations, directly or indirectly, affiliated to the binays. it’s possible that corporations may be headed by the spouses of binay’s children, or managed ng mga kamag-anak nila under different names. I heard that even raissa was unsuccesful in tracing the bakery or bakeries owned by the binays. it’s well hidden. binay is well adviced and well connected, and knows how to ‘layer’ a business.

    Today is Philippine Independence Day – June 12th. Since 1898 up to now we are still trying to be independent.

    Pres. Ninoy Aquino said TODAY at Naga City, reminding THE PEOPLE not to vote for those GOOD ONLY FOR SHOW…shows and entertainers -

    “In his speech in Naga City, Aquino reminded the people not to vote for leaders who are only good for show.

    This, after the privilege speeches of Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr received negative public reaction.

    “Ang hamon sa atin: Piliin ang mga kandidatong kayang ipaglaban ang interes ng bawat mamamayan, sa harap ng anumang hamon. Hindi natin kailangan ng magaling bumigkas ng script, mahusay sumayaw, o kaya magaling kumanta. Pananagutan nating mag-iwan ng mas makatarungan at mas maunlad na Pilipinas kaysa atin pong dinatnan,” Aquino said.”

    Hamon. Challenge to THE PEOPLE. Vote only for those who have INTERESTS for the people in all challenges. Entertainers specially from movies, actors, comedians atbpa…WAG YUN MGA YAN.

    DANCERS and SINGERS not good for political leadership. Do Not Vote Them or their KIND.

    Vote for the Upright people to have this country progress. Our past bad practice in VOTING must not be repeated again.

    Remember: Do Not Vote For Entertainers, Actors, Singers, Dancers and Comedians!

    How about TRAPOS? Bad Trapos? Dynasty people? These are also candidates who have NO INTEREST for the people. KASAMA ITONG HINDI IBOTO.

    Mga matanda? Advanced age? Pag nag sabi “gusto ko happy ka’ …Wag Iboto rin!

    How about THOSE WITH PENDING CRIMINAL CASES in Courts and other Agencies? To be sure, Do Not Vote for Them Also.

    UNA candidates? No way we should vote for any of them.

    Leona @ 92.2.2.1.1 mentioned ombudsman Morales last among her list of presidentiables.

    In connection with what the clairvoyant friend of Moonie’s nanay said @82.1.1.1.2, I foresee the following events:

    1. On or before the end of 2014 Sec. Leila de Lima will resign after all those involved in the PDAF, MF, FF scams are indicted by the ombudsman.

    2. Conchita Carpio-Morales (CCN) will be appointed as justice secretary where she will, of course, do excellent job again like when she was a Supreme Court justice and ombudsman.

    3. CCN will be drafted as LP presidential bet in 2015.

    4. CCN will win by slight margin over Binay and Cayetano in the 2016 elections.

    If Cayetano does not run as president, CCN will win with a wide margin.

    Inquirer columnist Juan Mercado wrote about CCN.

    “Applause is the end and aim of “weak minds,” parliamentarian Edmund Burke once wrote. But it also spurs “noble minds.” That’s tailor-fit for Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales.”

    “But “never grow a wishbone where your backbone should be,” columnist Dorothy Parker would josh friends in New York’s Lower East Side. And backbone is what this Ombudsman always had.”

    In preparation for the issuance of warrants of arrest, the Sandiganbayan’s(SB) fifth division who is trying the plunder and graft cases against jinggoy, et al. issued this afternoon a hold-departure order against the said accused.

    The other divisions of the SB trying the cases against enrile and bong are expected to follow suit in the coming days.

    Meanwhile, the PNP custodial center has shown to the media the new detention facility purportedly for the 3 senators, et al, which is a lot more convenient than the usual jail.

    The one hectare compound supposedly for the administration and quarters of PNP senior officials was converted into a likely detention facility. Each 32-square meter room has a single-sized bed, kitchen sink with cabinets, ceiling fan, side table and a comfort room with a handheld shower and standard toilet. One of the four rooms, however, has two bunk beds (for romeo and juliet?)

    Why spent public funds for the lawmakers and their cohorts who regularly robbed the public of billions of taxpayers’ money? They already lost their “honorable” title for their dastardly acts and should be detained in ordinary jails infested with rats – to which they now become.

      To answer your question is because: our justice system is used to selective adm of justice! One for the rich and VIPs who are few; and another for the ordinary suspects who are into thousands.

      That’s is the perversion under a democratic form of government.

      A mixture of the ‘so many’ and the so few ‘elite’ ruling the state comes an oligarchical form of government.

        Bong Revilla has become so thick- skinned that he hardly noticed the response of the crowd to his speech, that selfie with him has been given priority by the crowd, A SIGN OF DISRESPECT AND TRUST to his being a senator.

        As Abraham Lincoln quoted ” You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”

      people are sometimes like birds that collect anything from bottle tops, baubles, knives, guns, selfies as well.

      nice to have selfies of bong revilla for comparions, the then and now, before and after his conviction. from pogi to ugly. from pogi to masungit, pogi being desperate. mapping and documenting his progress of how low and lower he can get. he was lucky no one tackled him and made citizen’s arrest.

      people will soon be showing bong’s picture to scare children that the same thing will happen to them if they become senator and steal funds. that they’ll be forced to smile and pose for selfies, even if they dont want too. forced to be nice to people, forced to show and exposed themselves to strangers they would rather die than be seen. when all they wanted to do is have quiet time with colleagues drinking in expensive bars.

    In a press conference on Monday, the mayor alleged that sometime this week, his family’s political opponents in Makati would file “politically motivated” complaints in the Ombudsman accusing him, his father Vice President Jejomar Binay, and sister Makati Rep. Abigail Binay of plunder and graft.

    CARPER to expire June 30 this year.

    “THE Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms Law (Carper) will expire on June 30 but land acquisition and distribution under the law will continue, Malacañang said on Saturday.

    Some farmer groups fear that the expiration of the law will halt the distribution of land that may adversely affect poor farmers who rely on parcels of land they till.

    But deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the President certified the CARP extension bill as urgent but Congress failed to act on it.

    Despite this development however, Valte said the Department of Agrarian Reform continues to issue Notices of Coverage for land distribution.”

    I am biased on this program ever since. Lands were distributed under this Program, yet the country imports and of course…SMUGGLE rice from abroad. And other edible products. Why is that?

    Farmers now ‘owners’ many of them are selling the lands distributed to them and instead prefers to WORK ABROAD…not as farmers anymore. This selling violates the law of the Program. I never heard nor read anyone farmer etc. caught and prosecuted. Sleeping on the Agrarian Program?

    Fertilizers…expensive or not? It is expensive. Ask Joc Joc Bulante. Do farmers get enough of fertilizers? I doubt, reason why farmers instead sell the land and work abroad or never work as farmer anymore.

    When is the gov’t going to pay the landowners for the lands taken away from them? Nada! Aerial surveying of lands not titled under Torrens System…when? The Dept. stopped it…No funds? So, landowners are not paid until now, NO TITLE under Torrens System.

    What a program indeed!

  33. Johnny Lin says:

    Time to ponder!
    Are CPMers really concern with the state of the nation or are only good with talking points?

    Recently in the news were reports of mystery killings of various members of society!
    The subject of “murder” discussed lengthily by CPMers involved a Revilla, not necessarily for national interest but probably mainly due to the name of the victim and accused. None has been discussed on crime sprees of non political citizens. When politicians are the subject of this blog, opinions clogged the site. Crime events that could have national implication is seldom discussed.

    Bringing me to raise this question:
    Is there a political angle on current killing spree by hired killers?

    Race car driver, Hotel owner, Pangasinan mayor, BIR investigator and others are recent victims of guns for hire.

    Why did I ask this question? Before martial law was imposed by Marcos, violence marred various sectors of society including the fake ambush of Enrile to condition the mind of the people to accept a coming certain event, martial law.

    President Aquino’s government is he’ll vent on eradicating graft and corruption, shaming and charging those documentedly involved. Not a secret to everyone is that his preferred successor is Mar Roxas who is DILG secretary with overall control of LGU and PNP directly responsible for peace and order all over the country.

    Coincidentally, like during martial law, Enrile was in the news daily due to PDAF scam. Honasan, mastermind of Cory Aquino coup, has also been incriminated in PDAF scam. An Estrada as well as a Revilla were also named in the corruption. The names have been linked to quite a few violent crimes before but never proven, including the Dacer murder and some killings in Cavite.

    Few days ago, Vice Mayor Isko Moreno talked publicly that he and Manila Mayor Erap are tired of those stubborn people indiscriminately violating city laws that prompted him to say “do not be surprised to hear in the news that certain personalities suddenly disappear”. This is not a veiled threat because it was declared publicly.

    Binays have been deluged with political news exposing their unexplained wealth without response.
    UNA political party was formed by the triumvirate Binay, Estrada and Enrile. This early UNA endorsed Vice President Binay for president, most probably against Roxas, most probably PNoy’s endorsed successor. Binay has always praised Noynoy Aquino despite his well known tirades against the administration’s policy, prompting Cong Erice to call VP Binay a “double cara”.

    Since it is under Aquino administration this escalating breakdown of peace and order occurs, naturally his political opponents or those decimated by his corruption crusade would blame him.

    But, is PNoy really the target? Or is it conditioning the mind of the people that his administration and caretakers were responsible for failed peace and order so the people must prepare for a certain coming event, 2016 presidential election

    Is it far fetched to ask that DILG Sec Roxas is the”indirect discreditation target” on the deteriorating peace and order condition from various “unreasonable killings”?

    Martial law vis a vis 2016 election.

    Dela vue, is history repeating itself under reverse situation?

        Who is the good contender now and then after, before 2016?

    • Rene-Ipil says:

      I think the most debilitating factor in the current wave of violent crimes in the country concerns the intramurals between the PMA and PNPA graduates, and the quarrel between DILG Secretary Roxas and PNP Chief Purisima.

      Roxas ordered that promotions and assignments in PNP should be based on merits and performance regardless of the person’s alma mater. Of course, Purisima and the PMA faction silently opposed Roxas’ command. The PNPA faction is demoralized resulting to work inefficiency. All the top positions in the
      PNP hierarchy with one or two exceptions, are now occupied by PMAers. And considering that all local chiefs of police and station commanders, with few exceptions in large urban cities, are PNPA graduates, it is not surprising that violent crimes abound nationwide.

      It now becomes appropriate that the bill approved by the senate in 1999 to return or devolve police functions to LGUs be revived. This would eliminate the top heavy positions mostly manned by PMA graduates who should be retired or returned to the military. The NBI, which is national in character, should be organized into an effective agency similar to FBI so that high profile cases would be investigated by the NBI.

      BTW Binay proposed in 2001 that the police be completely returned to the mayors.

    As if we do not remember: on LOYALTY…UNA Tiangco says -

    http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2014/06/philippines-asian-tiger-econom-2014612144132483842.html

    The article “Under the stewardship of the Aquino administration, the Philippines has presided over an unprecedented period of macro-economic buoyancy and political stability, which has, in turn, revived domestic and international business confidence in the Southeast Asian nation.”

    According to Hillary Clinton: “The difference between a politician and a statesman is that a politician thinks about the next election while the statesman think about the next generation”

    In the context of the PDAF scam that is embroiling the country, let me rephrase this to: “The difference between a politician and a statesman in the Philippines is that a traditional politician (trapo) thinks about his pocket while the statesman think about the next generation”. (Apology to Hillary Clinton)

    I believe this community of CPMers can play a big part in making this happen by exposing the “nation-tearers” and supporting the “nation-builders” of the Philippines.

    Reliable Info

    Media men friendly(whatever it means) on the political push of VP Jojo have been ordered to stop releasing news report from the Binays.

    Gagging reporters was the marching order after Neal Cruz PDI column. Same reason, Abigail Binay did not respond to the charge of Cong Erice that he has evidence on the Wormgate. Toby Tiangco was tasked to keep attacking the detractors with deceiving facts.

    Usually high profile politicians respond immediately to negative comments by well known columnists like Cruz. Silence is the answer to Cruz. Remember the talking points of Binays to questions related to the source of their riches.

    Keep asking daily on social media “Where is the source of your wealth, Jojo Binay and family?”

  40. rejtatel says:

    Wondering when a courageous individual would dig into VP Binay’s closet. Since he has already declared his intention to run for President in 2016 years ago, i think it is fair game that investigation on his wealth should have commenced also years ago.

    For starters, it would seem that his SAL rose from 8 Million pesos to 58 Million pesos when he became a public official, according to PDI, Neil Cruz June 13, 2014:

    “Then there is his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth, which shows that his net worth grew from P8 million to P58 million when he became a public official. Jojo Binay has no known business. His income is supposed to have come only from his salary as a public official. So where did all that wealth come from?

      That 8million pesos starting asset was questionable since it was adjusted inflation asset of his house in Makati. He declared that long after he became mayor.

      He has a house in Makati probably worth less than a million pesos during martial law. He drove an old beaten car. He did not own any condo unit back then nor a big ranch in the province.

      At any rate, 50 million increase in assets as government employee is impossible. that is not calculating the 60 million assets of Nancy Binay who worked as OJT in their family household.

      We need noble minds. We need people of values. We need good political leaders.

      Noble Good Values.

        It’s CCM, Conchita Carpio-Morales.

        • Kalahari says:

          With due respect, CCM would become a good P and also pork-free – but she is not a politician and has no stomach facing the crowd and promising heavens to all if elected, which she knows she can’t fulfill.

          Alan C and tony T are aspiring for high office but vp binay is way way ahead campaigning since 2010 and still criss-crossing the country for his election bid backed-up by ever-growing campaign funds and his own vast wealth, not to mention the efficient UNA machinery.

          We need a popular and winnable candidate who has resources, experience and integrity and could be the rallying point to continue the “Daang Matuwid”

          • leona says:

            @Kalahari…that would be the most special qualifying factor for CCM…not a politician! We don’t need her to be. And she would not need to promise the heavens and the moon to the crowd. In fact, people won’t like to hear such promises.

            What the people only wants is nobility, value and goodness. A good governance. No or less corruption. We cannot have everything or perfection.

            Magsaysay Is My Guy was no politician. Conchita is a magic name too! People will love the name and become popular in the next days!

            The only first problem is will she? TonyT needs ‘schooling’ a lot of schooling. Alan C has thick black clouds over his head.

            Popular and winnable can be created…so to say from people’s desires and feelings based on the best: nobility goodness values.

            Make it Values Nobility Goodness …V N Go Conchita!

            • Kalahari says:

              How I wish CCM would give a signal that she’s amenable – and it would be all-systems-go.

              We can spearhead at this early a nation-wide movement for CCM FOR PRESIDENT MOVEMENT and no doubt all knowledgeable and progressive-minded pinoys will join the bandwagon.

              CCM is more acceptable and popular at the moment and can give vp binay and his family a fight of their lives.

              CPMers for CMPM – not bad

                i like how it is divinely shaping out.

                Conchita meaning and name origin:
                Conchita \c(o)-nchi-ta, con-chita\ as a girl’s name has the meaning “conception” and is a variant of Concepcion (Latin): Concepción is used mostly in Latin American countries to honor the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Mary.

                M O R A L E S
                Definition: 1) “Son of Moral,” a given name meaning “right and proper.” 2) Dweller near a mulberry or blackberry bush. 3) “From Morales,” the name of several Spanish towns

                OH please, dear Lord, so make it , so be it.

              • leona says:

                @netty…we all know the presidency is a God-given gift or His will. May your PRAYER be heard!

                …in some countries like USA, presidents mostly come from governorships and very seldom former senators become a president.

                …let us hope that we, ordinary citizens and others would not think of a pattern the ‘WHO’ must come from the Senate or Congress but from any good place.

                So, ‘Conchita Carpio Morales’ the Ombudsman is a good place. What is the origin of ‘carpio’ @netty?

              • leona says:

                @netty…

                here’s one source of the origin name of ‘Carpio’

                ‘Carpio Family History
                Carpio Name Meaning Spanish: habitational name from Carpio in Valladolid province or any of various places in southern Spain named with this word (a regional term meaning ‘hill’), as for example Carpio-Bernardo or El Carpio.Italian (Naples): from the personal name Carpio, a short form of Eucarpio.’

                A ‘hill’. Now, it might become a mountain!

        @ leona & rene,

        Conchita Carpio – Morales ( C.C.M.) was doing good being Chief, Office of the Ombudsman and also Sec.Leila de Lima being Chief of Dept. of Justice (D.O.J.) l think it is Good that they retain their respected Post…

        Thank you very much to both of you & God Bless Philippines….

      • Rene-Ipil says:

        Conchita and Miriam face off.

        I vividly remember the Conchita-Miriam showdown in the Corona trial. Conchita’s “mea culpa” and “noted” defanged Miriam and put her in a corner licking her pride without an audible whimper. Seldom do we see a demonstration of such cerebral, calm, regal and proud disposition before an adversary like Miriam who used to terrorize witnesses and congressmen-prosecutors in the Corona trial.

        • leona says:

          @Rene…hehehe

          …just like that scene of Jesus before Pilate, the latter asking: Are you the Son of God? Jesus answered: You said it! …Pilate started licking his robe, ending tsk tsk tsk

          hahaha

          • Kalahari says:

            Cuevas-Morales faced-off on Day 37 of Corona trial

            “When Cuevas asked why Carpio-Morales did not mention that AMLC was the source of the report on the purported $10M funds, she said it was not necessary.”

            “Cuevas said Corona should have been informed about the source so he could properly defend himself.”

            “Carpio-Morales said Corona should have filed a motion for a bill of particulars or asked for more details in response to the letter-request from the Ombudsman.” (GMA News 5/14/12)

            CCM was decisive and knowledgeable – good traits of a P.

              • moonie says:

                sa inquirer.net, trillanes is being bobo na naman! sabing ganun na ‘di dapat ma-detain si tanda dahil 90 anyos na at masyadong mainit daw sa luob ng selda. didn’t trillanes know that camp crame has new seldas specially made for the purpose? the new and modern seldas are well ventilated, may mga kisame at bentana, and lot better than the ones that trillanes was in previously. hadn’t trillanes seen the new seldas? he should have inspected them 1st before saying anything. ininsulto yata niya yong army engineers na gumawa ng mga seldang yon. akala mo pigpen ang ginawa nila at hindi selda.

                tanda is fitter than anyone kasing edad niya. trillanes said consideration should be given as tanda is on medication. well, at lot of us are also in medication. tanda is more privileged dahil he can afford his medication, a lot of us cannot and sometimes have to stop our medications.

                in case trillanes is worried, no one is going to stop tanda from taking his medicine while in detention. in fact, it is adviced tanda continue on with medication for that will only make him stronger, fit as a fiddle and live longer too. his health is maintained. 2ndly, other inmates are also on medication, not just tanda. get it, trillanes?

              • pelang says:

                we shouldn’t have the last laugh. the latest i heard, Bong Revilla might run for president if there is a big clamor for it, said he. the nerve! sa dami nga ng nakulimbat, tatakbo siya talaga as President. suportado siya ni Mayor Romualdez ng Tacloban. Quoted: He is still the President of Lakas Party.

              • leona says:

                @moonie….I was right…Trillanes does not need to go take further schooling talaga! …

                he won’t be appropriate for any other higher office…does not really know to bite the bullet!

                …that’s why our justice asystem is lousy because of kinds of leaders we have…sobra lambot sa pakikisama baluktot na salita.

                Aray!…trilla.

              • moonie says:

                pelang, bong revilla is going to be one of the nuisance candidates emerging out of the woodwork during election. good for him to try though, when the results come in, he will know how hated he really is. kamag-anak lang yata niya ang buboto sa kanya.

                leona, trillanes is a disappointment to me.

    Just Watch It…no one even trust any ‘Division’ of the Sandiganbayan Court!

    “IT may take some time before the Sandiganbayan can take action on the plunder complaint filed against senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada and businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles because the anti-graft court will have to wait for the Supreme Court’s (SC) decision on a petition challenging the case and the Ombudsman’s request for the creation of a special division that will handle “pork” cases.”

    …so, DELAYS and delays!

    A special division? What for? We create 2 special divisions and then create another special-special division from the two special divisions…naloko na! Everything in ‘Pinas is SPECIAL!

    A court is a court. A ‘special court’ is becoming not a court at all…it got to be special at that!

    …you see our justice system here? That’s it!

          Adding…before there were special courts for single salas…it was dissolved as the judges were being killed etc.

          I just hope no special courts again this time.
