Push agenda, not personalities

By

The presidential race, still more than two years away, is off to an early start. Aspirants are making their declarations, alliances are a-forming, the positioning of various personalities is getting tested.

‘Dud’ wasn’t from VP

We would like to assure commentary writer Edilberto C. de Jesus and Inquirer readers that Vice President Jejomar C. Binay never used the word “dud” to describe the affidavit of Ruby Tuason (“Politically motivated,” Opinion, 3/1/14).

Fearing Binay presidency

We appreciate the Inquirer editorial staff’s fearless views and reports of events here and abroad, including Ramon Tulfo for his column “VP Jojo Binay’s death warrant” (Metro, 12/24/13) and Winnie Monsod for siding rightfully with the Dasmariñas Village security guards (“Winnie Monsod: Guards were correct,” Inquirer.net, 12/19/13). To all of them I say, “Keep up the good work!”

‘Consistently silent’

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.

Dark horses

By

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.

‘Politically motivated’

By

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.

Dasma incident: arrogance of power

This is in reaction to the news report titled “3 Dasma guards who stopped Binay convoy held, freed” (Front Page, 12/19/13).

Lessons in humility

By

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.

Day of reckoning will come for family of bullies

What a horrible experience it must have been for the poor security guards manning the Banyan-McKinley gate in Dasmariñas Village, Makati City, after an encounter with the hooligans of Mayor Junjun Binay. 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.

‘PDI’s anonymous news source was tainted’

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.

VP kept Aquino informed on talks with Misuari

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.

The fog of politics

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. That is to say, he did not represent President Aquino but acted as his own principal. How else explain the astonishing statement he made, [...]
