It’s as clear as day: The campaign season has started. And Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago’s advice to voters makes profound sense: Don’t vote for those involved in the pork barrel controversy. But don’t stop there, she said. Shun as well those who have remained “consistently silent” in the face of staggering criminality in public office, those who refuse to take their colleagues to task for their corruption, those whose political considerations trump their sworn duty to root out and condemn venality in government.

Ronnie Zamora has an interesting thing to say about the electoral situation today. Only Jojo Binay and Mar Roxas are the serious presidential bets, the others are not. Including Alan Peter Cayetano whom he appears to be backing.

Following Ruby Tuason’s appearance at the Senate to speak on the Napoles pork barrel scam, Vice President Jejomar Binay questioned her enlistment in the government’s Witness Protection Program, dismissing as a “dud,” not a “slam-dunk,” the testimony she could provide.

Much has been said about the standoff between Makati Mayor Junjun Binay’s convoy and the Dasmariñas Village security guards who refused to let the former pass through a gate which was supposed to be closed at certain hours of the night. There was another gate close by that was always open.

These poorly paid security personnel who were just implementing a security protocol were hauled to the police station for offending the sensibilities of a bully political family.
We find it unfortunate that the Inquirer statement on the Dasmariñas incident misses the point: The reporter relied on an unnamed source who fed her lies. Not several sources, but principally just one source, as clearly stated in the Dec. 19 story.
It appears that “the fog of war and politics” that the Inquirer alluded to in its Sept. 16 editorial has obscured the perspective of its editorial writer.
Apparently, when Vice President Jejomar Binay negotiated with his “college classmate” Nur Misuari last Friday, to try to end the fighting in Zamboanga City, he did so on his own behalf.

Brand-new senator JV Ejercito, son of Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada and San Juan Mayor Guia Gomez, was one of the three guests at the Kapihan sa Manila at the Diamond hotel last Monday. The others were Deputy Director Teodoro Pascua of Tesda and Raymond Fortun, lawyer of the family of Angelito San Juan, who died of injuries suffered during the explosion in a condo unit last month in Ayala Land’s Two Serendra in Taguig City.
As a resident of Makati for 40 years, my family recognizes the gains of the premier city under the watch of now Vice President Jejomar Binay. In “Binay touts his popularity in campaign stop” (Inquirer, 4/21/13), Vice President Binay’s remarks about a “new kind of politics… a kind of politics that understands governance” may not [...]
