Aquino ally berates ‘NPAs’ in Cabinet

By

Sen. Sergio Osmeña III hit the bull’s-eye on March 18 when he called President Aquino “an honest and good man but an awful manager.” Osmeña’s political loyalties are unpredictable, and political observers sometimes define him as an administration ally. Others say his primary loyalty is to no one but himself.

A ‘look-back’ on Aquino’s vows in last 4 years

Before President Aquino tries and takes advantage of the January lull to somehow sway the public into thinking that he has done a lot of good in 2013, or maybe force the public into looking ahead to 2014, I just want to make sure that Malacañang is aware of the following.

Running on faith

By

The President’s speech

By

President Aquino came out swinging at his political opponents and critics Wednesday night in a special televised address to the nation. But, reading the transcript of the President’s speech more closely, I got the sense that it was a defensive response to Sen. Jinggoy Estrada’s own privilege speech at the Senate last Sept. 25. The President might have thought that Estrada and the other accused lawmakers in the pork barrel scam had managed to confuse the public and divert media attention from the main issues.

‘Conspiracy’ theories

By

President Benigno Aquino III rebuked the media on Wednesday for attacking the Disbursement Acceleration Program, insinuating that a “conspiracy” was behind the attacks. He did not say with whom the media were conspiring to malign him.

Aquino asked to fulfill commitment

I write again from the United Kingdom where the Philippines is gaining a reputation as “that country where that wretched elephant continues to be held captive despite repeated promises by the Philippine authorities to transport it to a sanctuary where it can roam free with others of its own species.”

What about lowly Clark employees?

This is in reaction to the article “GOCC’s 3-yr P77-B take is heaven to P-Noy” (Second Front Page, 6/4/13).

P-Noy as Rambo and Inspector Javert

The argument of President Aquino that a total gun ban will only favor society’s bad elements to the detriment of law-abiding citizens (Inquirer, 1/10/13) is a clear admission that bad elements abound in this country. It is the constitutional duty of the President of the Philippines, as commander in chief, to eliminate bad elements and maintain peace and order nationwide.

P-Noy giving up on Marcos loot?

ALL ADMINISTRATIONS since Cory Aquino, unlike those in other countries, did not have a strong resolve and missed the historic chance to clean up the mess of autocracy and kleptocracy. Letting the Marcoses get away with plunder and corruption and other political-economic transgressions against the Filipino people would be a monumental error that would reverse the gains of People Power and destroy what little faith we have left in this democracy. It is a virtual indictment of our supposed democracy that our institutions, with all their vast powers, have to bow down to and crumble before private, self-aggrandizing interests of the remorseless greedy who wield immense wealth and influence.

To make or break

By

There are two star performers for 2012. They are President Benigno Aquino III and the Filipino as a people. The combination or relationship of the two carried over a momentum that began in 2011 when the government blocked the attempted, post-haste exit of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. By coincidence or synchronicity, a major shift began [...]

Call to P-Noy: Choose chief justice wisely

We commend the conviction of Chief Justice Renato Corona by the senator-judges. We hope this would lead to a new paradigm of transparency and accountability in governance, as Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano said.

Screwed coming and going

By

The decision of the Supreme Court on Hacienda Luisita was announced on Tuesday, April 24. As of this writing (Friday, April 27), the decision has yet to be promulgated. My information is that the discussion of the high court en banc on Tuesday needed to be properly reflected in both the majority decision and in the dissenting opinions, and so some amount of rewriting had to be done. Plus, of course, the signatures of all 14 participating justices (Associate Justice Tony Carpio inhibited himself) have to be affixed. Which is why the delay, and why it still hasn’t been uploaded onto the Supreme Court website.
