And so starts the circus of Renato Corona’s trial by publicity

The Philippine media seems to be stepping up a campaign to distort the facts surrounding the impeachment case against Philippine Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice (CJ) Renato Corona. It is evident in the way Michael Lim Ubac wrote on the very first line of his Inquirer.net “report” World Bank: Loan to Supreme Court high risk that “The Supreme Court under the watch of Chief Justice Renato Corona has been weighed and found wanting.” But, as Get Real Post reader Domingo Arong pointed out in a comment there, “the loan was administered under the incumbencies of three other previous Chief Justices during a span of eight long years,”…

“The World Bank approved the loan in 2003” during the incumbency of CJ Hilario D. Davide (November 30, 1998 – December 20, 2005) and continued to be administered during the tenure of CJ Artemio V. Panganiban (December 20, 2005 – December 7, 2006).

The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of CJ Reynato Puno (December 8, 2006 – May 17, 2010); however “the World Bank extended the closing date twice–first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months (until June 30, 2012).”

“Thus far,” the report continues, “the tribunal has spent $16.3 million (76 percent of the revised loan amount of $21.4 million.”

However, “due to questions over the fiscal discipline of the tribunal in adhering to loan stipulations, the World Bank cancelled the final tranche of the loan amounting to $0.5 million.”

Clearly, the above information is not consistent with the opening line of the very news “report” that it appears in. As if that instance of seemingly blatant twisting of facts weren’t enough, a paid ad was also placed in the 15th January 2012 edition of the Philippine Daily Inquirer by an undisclosed group which had the words “Remove Arroyo’s Gatekeeper!” as its header and “Fight for what’s good! Save the Supreme Court! Remove Corona!” as its footer. Included in the ad was a cartoon depiction of an embattled Chief Justice being persecuted by the public…

The above image was posted on the PAID YELLOW AD on PDI today regarding CJ Corona look in page 10-1 folder of the Facebook page Showbiz Government with the following caption:

ABS-CBN and [the] Philippine Daily Inquirer headlined the World Bank misuse loan [refer here]. What the Yellow Media maliciously ignored was [that] the WB project was implemented in 2003 under CJ Hilario Davide, Jr. whose son was endorsed by Noynoy Aquino (P-Noy) during the 2010 election. Sadly, [the] WB fund was audited during Renato Corona[‘s] watch. The head of the project committee was even another Justice. Not Corona. Who are you fooling, ABS–CBN and Philippine Daily Inquirer (Official)?

[…]

People are quick to say Corona is biased [for] former President Gloria Arroyo because [the] SC (a collegiate body) voted 19-0 in favor of Arroyo. Probably, they should ask the question if all 19 cases vs Arroyo were prepared WELL or hastily. If the cases were loose due to technical deficiencies/loopholes, you cannot expect [the] SC to uphold these cases because the very essence of their responsibility is to uphold the law in all its technicality. This should give Arroyo prosecutors the message [that] they should do the hard work and not cut corners. […]

[NB: Some of the above text was edited for clarity by the author of this blog and, as such, the above copy may be slightly different from the original.]

Earlier we noted how “social news network” site Rappler.com, an organisation of “online journalists” who promise “uncompromised journalism”, apparently published the original World Bank audit findings which were originally not intended for immediate public consumption, raising the possibility that the whole story around the WB findings were inappropriately leaked and used

It seems that [the WB report] was not supposed to be published publicly as yet but it was leaked to RAPPLER.COM. It is alleged that Andre[w] Parker husband of Presidential Management Staff chief [NB: Budget Secretary Abad’s daughter Julia Abad Parker is the director-general of the Presidential Management Staff] leaked the paper to RAPPLER. This is the report which seems to insinuate and fuel anti [Chief Justice Renato Corona] sentiments before Monday’s trial.

So much for “uncompromised journalism”. Veteran blogger Angela Stuart-Santiago notes in her call out to [Rappler.com CEO Maria Ressa] that the whole Corona impeachment circus is a “trial by publicity, and rappler is part of it. too bad.” Too bad indeed. At a time when Filipinos now possess the tools to access an unprecedented volume of information, they can no longer rely on their traditional sources of said information for the truth.

  1. Lies that make my blood boil….lies..then damned lies…it’s unfair, evil and immoral pero yan ang kalakaran sa Pinas…bakit mo sisirain ang isang tao sa kasinungalingan?..My family and I pray for CJ Corona…malampsan sana nya ang kasinungalingan ng kasalukuyang administrasyon. I love Pinas but hate the Government. Canada OFW.

    1. Read it. Not impressed. Still siding with the CJ on this one. Knowing what his family is like, versus that of the president, it’s pretty clear who actually stands for integrity, truth and justice. The media can’t brainwash all of us.

      1. Yes, the media can’t brainwash all of us but surely most of us. Hitler was able to hoodwink most of the Germans because of his charisma. Penoy has absolutely no charisma but used the vast resources of media at his disposal and because of his money. The media are aplenty with the likes of De Quiros but how many Benign0s, Ilda, Doronila, Tiglao, Ninez Cacho Olivarez, Emil Jurado, jojo Robles and other “voices in the wilderness” do we have? I don’t believe Filipinos are inherently gullible and easily brainwashed but there are just too many goebbels in media.

    Confucius, he say – “The object of the superior man is truth”.
    I say – The goal of the hypocrite is self-interest and pork barrel.

    Lets us see which one the ‘honorable’ senators turn out to be.

    Already the black propaganda of p-noy,supported by irresponsible elements of the media, is resulting in a public backlash to their dirty tricks. If the senate does not apply due process and independence then all hope for progress in the country is lost and the credibility of the senate itself will decline even further.
    It could end up being a pyrrhic victory

  3. The above layout of the PDI news poster is a look alike of a late 1930’s anti-Jewish Nazi newspaper propaganda. The dictator Mr. Aquino likes using black propaganda and is very apparently into Nazi propaganda techniques.

  4. Kapag hindi natuloy ang balak ng mga dilaw na tanggaling si CJ Corona, mag-abang na lang ng maiimpeach na itlog dahil malamang mawala nang tuluyan ang tiwala ng mga tao kahit pa sabihin nating madaling magmanipula ang media para gaguhin ang publiko. Mabuti na lang at may ganitong website dahil sa tingin ko parami nang parami ang namumulat na tao sa bansa.

  5. it is very clear that that aquino is a dictator…he ain’t like his parents.and why should we also believe all the articles of PDI? aquino owned that newspaper. his also an oligarch. and we all knew that oligarchs like him are the cause of our ” kahirapan” as they say thats why HE opposed the charter change of the previous administration because once our system of goverment is change there will be no place for oligarchs in the society. may god help CJ corona. oust that hitler in the palace.

  6. Naku. Kung marinig niyo lang mga kapitbahay ko dito. It makes my skin crawl na ganitong klaseng breeding na meron ang mga Pilipino.

  7. @benign0,
    Let me pour a little vinegar to your wounds of bitterness. I am currently doing a round-collection to pay for a similar ads. So far I have collected $867 from my pocket and fellow OFWs. Don’t worry, the ads will be full of fun. You’ll see it in one of your most hated broadsheets later on.
    BTW, if the WB document wasn’t really supposed to be released to the public, then WB can go after its employee who leaked it. In short, we can leave it to their discretion- no need to whine about it.

    1. That’s good, it’s always important to have the evidence for the slander case someone will file against you exist in printed form. Good thinking, dumbass.

        1. Frankly, I couldn’t give a hoot how this whole thing turns out, except that I run the risk of getting one of my predictions wrong. Your retarded president and people like you who support him did the real damage already, no matter what the outcome.

          And the real disappointing thing is, there probably are real issues worth investigating properly and bringing to trial in a lot of cases of people like Corona, Arroyo & family, and government officials across the whole spectrum. But the system has absolutely no credibility now, no matter how anyone is judged – Bobo the Simple-Minded saw to that. Because it was never about “cleaning up corruption” or anything like that — it was just the opportunity to make personal hay while the sun shines for his six years, same as every other president you’ve had ever. So go ahead and make your ads or whatever you feel you need to do; it won’t make any difference, except (we can hope) hasten by just that incremental amount the national collapse and stretch of seriously hard times this country needs to finally pull its head out of its ass and be a functional political entity.

      1. @BenK,
        Is there any other better slander than the way you allow cussing, call people names and stamp on anyone – I mean anyone here? I just rattled your cage boy! How insulting to your self-imposed intelligence to easily believe such crap you fool! Take your own medicine . I hope you will throw up in agony and realize the vanity of your cause. Who cares if you don’t believe “Abnoy” is doing a house-cleaning? All society are having their share of cynical individuals like you. At least I still do believe that when its my time to finally spend the remaining days of my life in my country, it is hopefully better and I don’t care what is your opinion regarding that. Corona’s case is already being handled. Who gives damn if you don’t believe the system’s credibility? I also don’t know whose was better because the former system has just brought total shame to our country in the eyes of the international community. She says “The economy, student” , I say “Your loot , you fool!”.

        1. @HaraKiri

          If you want real house cleaning, try the Aquino-Cojuangcos. The others are just small fish. They won’t even make a dent as much as toppling a clan who’s legacy lies at the very the root of corruption and decadence in the Philippines, being one of its most active contributors. Before Corona and GMA, there were the Aquino-Cojuangcos with the money to manipulate media in order for easy preys like you to look the other way.

        2. @DaidoKatsumi
          “Sorry troll. But it seems that you totally lost it.It seems you REALLY wanted to drag the Philippines deeper down to hellhole. The biggest disappointment is that most of our mediocre people vote for a nutjob instead and trolls like you, with mediocre thinking, still support that guy. So still the fool is YOU because you’re going EMO over GMA claiming that she ‘stole’ YOUR money (which is the government’s money to begin with). And yet you call Noynoy’s Php60 billion pork barrel as ‘good governance.’ A Yellow Zombie like you is much worse of a fool, right? :P”

          Your ignorance & noneloquence add more rivets to your own cage of doom. LOL. Emphasizing that the OWWA’s money is a government’s money is not only a straighforward stupidity but practically thumbing up that stealing government’s money is just right.Bullshit! You have the nerve to use the ‘mediocre thinking’ I’m serious here and I dare you if you have REAL BALLS, just if you will (and you can afford to) go to Singapore, Vietnam or Thailand, notify me and I will meet you there and slap your dumb ass with the achievements of a mediocre OFW you b@%tard. So you really don’t know where is this bulk of OWWA Fund coming from? I hope someone can help you dig the congress archives to find out when was the last time the congress allocated a budget for OWWA. NEVER since time immemorial and it solely depended on $25/OFW collections which to date has accumulated to billions of pesos. A fat milking cow right? I can only hope you can understand how those OFWs fearing for their lives can’t easily run back home because the funds were not available to them only to find out lately that it was allegedly used for personal gains. Nonetheless, Its pointless to discuss to a blind the colors of the rainbow.But a sincere hope, migrant workers would not stop until someone goes to jail for the misuse of OWWA fund especially during the Lebanon crisis. While Corona is still there to protect his goddess of stealing we will never rest. I’ll tell you, it’s bull$h%t to think that it is solely Abnoy’s quest. What dragging to deeper hellhole you are talking about? Patonizing corrupt people has already brought the country down to that level. The piggy bank is noisy when it is practically empty.

          @Felipe
          “*whose”
          Before you quibble on grammatical details, why not also look word-for-word to your postings if yours is error-free you a%sh%le. I used the possessive pronoun “whose” because I was not referring to a person but rather the “system”.. you are so much akin to a donkey calling another donkey an “ass”.

          @BenK
          “I’d respond to that, but I’m not sure exactly — or even remotely — what point you’re trying to make with it.”I just replied to your previous post.

          ———————————
          Corona has a battery of lawyers who will defend him. All they have to do is to prove he is innocent. Damn it man, I definitely earn more than CJ and for him to own a property just at The Bellagio will realy raise both of my mother’s eyebrows. This issue is the mother of all sh%t! Of the articles of impeachment, the ones likely the prosecutor will put more weight on is his failure to file SALN. Then all he has to prove is his capacity to pay for those
          alleged properties. I don’t belittle his defense team. Maceda himself believes it will be an uphill for the prosecution to get 16 votes conviction. If no one here believes it is a democratic process, it’s not my problem. All the best to CJ anyways.

          I am giving Abnoy the support just as what I had given GMA in her early years – plain and simple. Cynics will NEVER understand the word HOPE because this is the anathema of their mere existence.But its all I got now . Who do you want me to look up to now? Your patroness who is life-threatened (kuno) by a rare disease or her crown jewel? “P%%ang %na..!” sabi nga ni Mr. Palengke. I have the hope for the country, I have to look up at the current leader NOT the raider. (Who cares what other’s opinions are!). With regards to Abnoy’s pork barrel which I have NEVER called ‘good governance’, let me throw back the same stupid lines of questioning ” you have a proof?”.. then why not publish here? I am excited to see that as much as I am equally eager to see the justice served to the HLI farmers. And let us not forget the poor FASAP members too whose hopes were ruined by recent SC decision flip-flopping. They got their quest, we have ours. Gong Xi Fa Cai / Gong Hey Fat Choy/chúc mừng năm má»›i.

        3. @HaraKiri: Tsk tsk. All you have is hope that you cannot substantiate and offer yourself no choice but to look up to the lowest common denominator. If you consider those things “all [you] got now”, then truly indeed you are a living embodiment of this sad afflictment called Da Pinoy Condition. 😀

        4. @benign0,
          Sad to say, I already said I don’t care what are other people’s opinion. If your idea of “Da Pinoy Condition” means “hopeless” that describes you – not me. Lastly, I don’t write to get paid.

        5. @HaraKiri: Still, point f*cking missed. As of now, they are ALLEGATIONS so better to keep it yourself for now. You mention Singapore, but they focus more on progress rather than trivial matters like this (Lee Kuan Yew will agree with me whether you like it or not). And it’s not really about patronizing corrupt leaders but patronizing the dysfunctional culture; just want to remind you that corruption is not just the government but the PEOPLE. The Philippines being Asia’s basketcase didn’t start with Arroyo but it started when Marcos left. And it wasn’t Arroyo who made the flawed 1987 Constitution but the oligarchy which you keep supporting on.

          The Arroyos being the ‘most evil’ is total BS. There are the Aquinos, Cojuangcos, etc. Don’t put you’re hopes on Noynoy because he’s just all anti-corruption talk and nothing else. Putting hopes for a nutjob is a proof of YOUR stupidity. In fact, this country would never move on if the likes of Gordon and Gibo were put on the backburner and if artistas, apelyidos, and athletes always matter.

        6. @DaidoKatsumi
          “You mention Singapore, but they focus more on progress rather than trivial matters like this (Lee Kuan Yew will agree with me whether you like it or not).” Ha ha – you are the one big stupid to portray you know Singapore . LKY jails the corrupt officials and even those who oppose him. J.B. Jeyaretnam was one of his political nemesis who died bankrupt as everything was practically taken from him and that’s what he got for going against LKY. What makes you think LKY will agree with you in not jailing the thieves? He will f%%k you from head to toe man. Theft here are dealt with seriously yo f%ol. This is the reason why this country has the highest paid government officials in the world – to give them high resistance to stealing. I used the term alleged because your stupid egos will hit me back with “where’s your proof”..I don’t miss the point you b%$t%rd. Celebrate for now because I heard that the stupid prosecutors did sarzuela today. They are only on the first article. The fun is yet to roll out.
          @benign0,
          If your idea of “Da Pinoy Condition. ” means “hopeless”, its definitely not me but you. Besides,I don’t write to get paid.

        7. it is refreshing to see someone takes GRP on its own turf and makes their writers feel they are not sobrasalientes worth adoring.

        8. @HaraKiri:
          I dunno ’bout you but it seems to me you took Daido Katsumi’s Singapore comment sorely out of context.

          “If your idea of “Da Pinoy Condition. ” means “hopeless”, its definitely not me but you.”

          And you arrived at this conclusion because?

          “Besides,I don’t write to get paid.”

          What are you trying to drive at?

        9. Third time yet still missing the point.

          You boast on LKY jailing corrupt officials but the fact is that eradicating corruption is not his number 1 priority. In any form of government, there will ALWAYS be corruption. The difference is the progress made and how it is ran to meet the day to day and yearly goals. People blamed PGMA because the media highlighted her faults and made her supposedly anti-masa. Yet the media who has ties with the Aquinos won’t look critically into their mistakes, if not making light of the current president’s ineptitude. See the bias?

          Why Lee Kuan Yew will agree on me? Because I have read his book From Third World to First because he poined out that the root problem of the Philippines is NOT corruption and patronizing corrupt officials but the CULTURE. Him saying “The Philippines is a soft, forgiving culture” didn’t happen during Gloria’s time but the Cory regime! Serfdom exists until now, and because of that culture, most of Filipinos did little to none in regards of the law by just ignoring it.

          You said that our country has the highest paid government officials eh bakit nga ang tinutukoy mo lamang sa sulat ay si PGMA? Gago. How about those who are corrupt in the lower levels? You didn’t even realize that if our government officials are corrupt, so does the people (mostly the masses). It seems you really enjoy this circus, eh? And sorry, the joke is still on you because you keep on defending our dysfunctional culture.

          “Besides,I don’t write to get paid.”

          And you’re now accusing GRP as ‘paid hacks.’ You’re almost like Vincenzo who is always spouting Yellow propaganda all over the place.

        10. @DaidoKatsumi

          Why Lee Kuan Yew will agree on me? Because I have read his book From Third World to First because he poined out that the root problem of the Philippines is NOT corruption and patronizing corrupt officials but the CULTURE. Him saying “The Philippines is a soft, forgiving culture” didn’t happen during Gloria’s time but the Cory regime!

          — Bingo, right out of your own stup%dity you had finally admitted that LKY’s iron-hand strategy is being applied to GMA now and the “softness” was during Cory’s regime? But wait a minute, didn’t she pardon Erap? What was that? “Softness” or another political strategy to ger favor from Jinggoy in troubled times like this? You have read LKY’ s book ( or maybe just the synopsis of it) and you suddenly become acquainted with the old man such that he will agree with you not to deal with what you call “trivial pursuits”? For your education, here in Singapore, there’s no such thing as trivial crime B%bo! Anybody here regardless of race will be arrested even up to the point of what you call the “trivial” act of chewing a gum. Here, the likes of Corona and GMA should have been gone to jail long time ago – this not according to me but according to my Singaporean colleagues who follow what is happening back there. LKY first eliminated all the enemies of good governance by throwing them to jail then he proceeded with his reforms. You are only limited to one book boy and you dare lecture to me the kind of system I have been living in for years? Para kang langaw na dumapo sa kalabaw totoy – feeling mo mas mataas ka.

          “You said that our country has the highest paid government officials eh bakit nga ang tinutukoy mo lamang sa sulat ay si PGMA? Gago.”

          Ikaw ang isa’t kalahating gago rito bata. Kailan pa naging malaki ang sueldo ng mga offcials natin? Kaya nga sila nag nagnanakaw ano! Sinabi ko bang sueldo sa Pilipinas yan, di ba Singapore nga because we were eventually benchmarking Philippines against Singapore.What “enjoying the circus” of corruption you are talking about? I have been a permanent resident of Singapore for a long time that’s why I wish that Pnas can have this status quo. On the otherside, the way you accuse people just shows the corruption running in your veins. Your sweat and your sh!t have all the evil odors of it – add to it your patronizing of the same. Dysfuntional culture? The mere fact that you are calling it this name is that you are part of it – admit it or not. You are the biggest joke boy. Being away from the country for so long, I am basically no longer a part of your dysfunctional culture and I can choose to change my citizenship but I DON’T WANT to because I still love Pilipinas and no matter how corrupt the leadership were/are, this is still my motherland that I call home. And f%^k y%urself if you don’t hope for a change but I still do – something your hero benign0 here looked down and even called it “Da Pinoy Condition.”..Tsk.. tsk.. kawawang mga Pilipino na gustong bumalik sa bayan natin. Matatakot na dahil sa mga tulad nyo. Congratulations, you have done a great job for the country and the next generation. Flawed 1987 Constitution? LOL. Being 9 years in power, who was the greatest beneficiary of this “blunder”? Did GMA exert her hard effort to change its flaws? NO because she knows she will benefit from it. Did the end justified the means? Oops!..I think “midnight appointment” ring a bell? Eliminating corruption is an integral part of good governance.You prioritize good governance, you jail the corrupt! The thing you call trivial pursuit is just appearing to be in the forefront because even before Abnoy decided to run for presidency or even 7 years back, GMA put herself in the limelight during the presidential election where she had a showdown with an artista. Hello? Garci? is that you?

          “Putting hopes for a nutjob is a proof of YOUR stupidity. In fact, this country would never move on if the likes of Gordon and Gibo were put on the backburner and if artistas, apelyidos, and athletes always matter”.

          Gibo or Gordon – why will I not support them had one of them won the seat? ONE FINGER SALUTE to you m0r%n! Go and lick Gibo’s or Dick’s scr@t%m but I will support who is the legitimate leader – plain and simple. Ma%atay ka man sa inis.

          @auriga & @jcc
          I said “I don’t write to get paid” – Wasn’t it benign0 the one who accused those “journalists” (I used also his quote-unquote insult) that they are being paid by the yellows? Does this “sobresaliente” blogger have a proof? If he has , go for the face off – show his identity because those journalists he is shooting, some females they are, have the bigger BALLS to show their faces and stand to what they write and they don’t hide on pseudonym. Otherwise, just keep on hiding behind the cyber wall and as the saying in our province goes: a castrated dog braks louder – just Glorify your gods and goddesses and shoot NOT the other demons of your kind.
          Happy CNY!

        11. @HaraKiri

          Before you quibble on grammatical details, why not also look word-for-word to your postings if yours is error-free you a%sh%le. I used the possessive pronoun “whose” because I was not referring to a person but rather the “system”.. you are so much akin to a donkey calling another donkey an “ass”.

          That’s it?!?

          If in my judgment, there is a possibility that my typos may change the meaning of my message, then I’d pay attention to it. Otherwise, I don’t care much—simple, no biggie. But if your preoccupation with irrelevancies and ad hominems are the best rebuttal you can offer, then I’d say try harder!—My message still stands. If Corona is the mouse that keeps the Aquino-Cojuangco elephant from crushing my house, then I’d rather have him or even GMA. You cannot pretend to fight corruption by getting rid of the smaller fish in order for the bigger fish have its evil way. It’s like torturing the guy who just touched your mother’s hand, while letting the guy who raped her go scott free.

        12. @HaraKiri:

          I tell you the truth – Gordon and Gibo are men action and what the country needs: CONCRETE VISION. Like I said, we will never move on if apelyidos, athletes, and artistas always matter. I just want to prove the fact na mas maraming TANGA ang bumoboto and always clinging on surveys rather using their brains.

          Nah, it was still YOU who is part of the dysfunctional culture of our country due to your way of thinking. Those who are the people who embraced the negative aspects of our culture like clinging to things like mediocrity, mendicancy, and stupidity.

          Sorry, troll. But before Gloria got ‘benefit’ on the 1987 Constitution, it was Cory and her personal cronies since they are the ones who author it. Do their thing LEGITIMATELY and set the country back for years while she and her group get kickbacks.

          And the culture of impunity didn’t start from Gloria either. That started after Marcos left. I wonder why did Cory released CPP founder Joma Sison and other members of the NPA during her presidency while she is blaming Marcos…

          Think about it: if FPJ win over Gloria during that time, then the country will still going downhill due to his ineptitude, just like what Noynoy did. But that’s how politics in the Philippines is: dirty. Honestly, I wanted change. But I must tell you that corruption starts on the bottom, not on the top. You’re not corrupt but how about those people below you? And it’s not just corruption but the bigger factors are laziness, stupidity, and too much partying (which is also a form of corruption; in fact corruption is MORE than just stealing government money). A change in our society should be the vocal point. And those whoa are afraid to return to our country because of us are ignorant simps like you who wanted to stay with the status quo that waa miring the country for so long. And that was after Marcos left, not Gloria’s 9 years. Are you telling me that the Cory days are great? 😛

          “On the otherside, the way you accuse people just shows the corruption running in your veins. Your sweat and your sh!t have all the evil odors of it – add to it your patronizing of the same.”

          It applies more to you because you’re clinging on another corrupt president so you’re also patronizing of the same. The Aquino-Cojuangcos are a bigger fish since their 50 years are much worse than Gloria’s 9 years.

          So congratulations because you just went full retard with what you wrote. Supporting the legitimate leader is just a waste of time since he has more blunders than GMA. BTW, you didn’t even understand the “Real leaders never play the blame game” saying but that is actually Noynoy since he’s doing nothing as of now. So he keeps on blaming GMA in order to hide his faults with the help of the Yellow Media. I think you should look HARDER because corruption is NOT the root problem either.

    2. Sure go ahead and make your collections, place your ads, and whip up this mob you call the “people’s will” into the usual moronic frenzy Pinoys have become renowned world-wide for.

      As long as there are people like you who think with all the parts of their body other than their brain voting for (and edsa revolutioning) the bozos who now run the country (whether that be Noynoy, Gloria, or whoever the hell else), there’s always be lots of fun things about the circus known as “the Philippines” to write in GetRealPhilippines.com.

      Not only will guys like me continue to get their kicks watching Da Pinas on television, all the media bigwigs will ultimately be the ones laughing all the way to the bank with your ad revenue and all the half-wits lapping up the drivel they call “news” being pumped into their televisions at home.

      nyek nyek

      1. Oh com’on benign0, with my work requirements to move from here to there I can’t vote. The last time I voted was during GMA’s vice-presidency. Be elated. I voted and campaigned for her during that time. Sadly, what I campaigned for and believed turned to disappointments. See you guys later, got to fly.

        1. Sorry troll. But it seems that you totally lost it.

          It seems you REALLY wanted to drag the Philippines deeper down to hellhole. The biggest disappointment is that most of our mediocre people vote for a nutjob instead and trolls like you, with mediocre thinking, still support that guy. So still the fool is YOU because you’re going EMO over GMA claiming that she ‘stole’ YOUR money (which is the government’s money to begin with). And yet you call Noynoy’s Php60 billion pork barrel as ‘good governance.’ A Yellow Zombie like you is much worse of a fool, right? 😛

        2. Pareho pala tayo. Pero bigger diappointment sila Cory and AbNoy. No one expected AbNoy to be stellar or produce miracles at the early part of his term, pero por Diyos por Santo! Santissimo que barbaridad!—he turned out to be an immediate failure on so many levels surpassing all presidents combined, including his mom, the moment he stepped into office. Just when you thought the country couldn’t get any worse, he brought the country to a new low!

  8. The packaging by the brand men of Noynoy themselves lied to the nation about the quality of said product. They (brandmen) were like the talking snake in the bible that duped the naive among us into taking a piece of that forbidden corrupt free and straight path tree of knowledge as symbolized by Noynoy, and deliver us from the evil of the past regime. And as the story goes, we all knew what happened next in the bible.

  9. ellen tordesillas exposed the wb report as a hoax with a full copy of the hoax email on her website

    “I’m the one saying it’ s a hoax. The WB report,
    which can be found in its website, does not carry
    criticisms of Corona and Marquez. In fact, it has
    a positive assessment of the project. That’s why
    they extended it.” e tordesillas

    the fact that drillon and p-noy on monday were calling for an investigation into the wb report shows clearly where the hoax report came from and is being used to draw midas marquez into the picture as the next target as well as continue the black propaganda against corona.

    they should call p-noys psychiatrist as a witness to validate the authentic psychological assessment – not the hoax one – and show this is a vindictive, obsessive personality who is not to be trusted and has delusions of entitlement

    it is incredulous that a govt can act in this way.
    and that people accept it.

    1. what hoax?… WB simply says it did not release the report by itself. but it did not deny the existence of the report, nor the truth thereof!

      someone who is not an addmirer of the SCORP did, but what matters is the contents itself, not that it was not officially released.

        1. that he disbursed more funds during his time than his predecessors? heheheee.. maybe for travels and junkets. read again and read between the lines.

  10. is it not obvious to everyone that the prosecution does not have anything on corona and they are resorting to trial by publicity hoping corona will do a merci? but since corona wanted his day in court, now they have to invent things to diss the CJ…

  11. You can see how these YellowTards and their propaganda tool: the Lopez ABS-CBN Media, distort the Truth.
    You will see evidences presented in the Senate, as Fraudulent Evidences…Noynoy Aquino and the Cojuangcos want desperately to take back their Hacienda Luisita. And they have no shame to show that they want to monopolize Power. Become another Khadafy family of the Philippines. What they have done to the People of Tarlac. They want to do it in the Philippines…

  12. p-noy did not sell his hacienda luisita shares. he transferred them to kris aquino.
    maybe the defense will bring this out at some point to underline the motive, the hypocricy and the lies/hiding the truth.

    p-noy let everyone see the deed of transfer

  13. Amazing how the YELLOW’s are blind to the importance of Corona and the Hacienda Luisita item.

    There is BIG MONEY at stake — the BIG MONEY is how much per hectare Hacienda Luisita stockholders will get reimbursed. Corona Court has already put the number (to be the land value when HL corporation held up the distribution of the land). “That’s too small!!! The price has to be fair!!” said Persi-Noynoy, and shortly thereafter the Impeach-Corona gained stronger momentum.

    1. If cojuangco-aquino lose hacienda luisita they will lose most of their money and all their political power in tge future.
      If they keep hacienda luisita then they will gain 30 Billion pesos over the next 10 years through selling land and commercial development and establish an almost unassailable political dynasty fir the next 20+ years.
      The impeachment is all or nothing for the cojuangco-aquinos, and i am sure the bribes(taxpayers money) to senators will be huge.
      The yellow media avoid the elephant in the room so people dont understand the link to hl or exactly what is at stake.
      Corona makes the point because he is not a fool and has seen the cojuangco-aquinos operate from the inside.
      If it is not ti do with hl then why not distribute the land instead of filing motion for reconsideration and other delaying tactics until a new cj is appointed. Within 1 year the hl ruling will be overturned or more likely the price set so high that farmers cannot get the land. Job done. People fooled – again

      1. “If they keep hacienda luisita then they will gain 30 Billion pesos over the next 10 years through selling land and commercial development and establish an almost unassailable political dynasty fir the next 20+ years.”

        Or worse: change the form of government to an outright aristocracy.

      2. What goes up , must come down…this is the truth in this universe…you have a starting point…You Peak…then, you go down. Mark my words: This is the turning point of the Aquino and Cojuangco families, Lust for Power.
        Adolf Hitler turning point was in the Battle of Leningrad in the Soviet Union. Japanese Empire’s turning point was in the Naval Battle at Midway in the Pacific…
        Roman Empire’s turning point was the introduction of Christianity as Empire’s religion…

  14. At a time when Filipinos now possess the tools to access an unprecedented volume of information, they can no longer rely on their traditional sources of said information for the truth.

    Unfortunately, in spite of the growing availability of these alternate sources of information, pinoys still prefer traditional media to do the thinking for them. Tsk, tsk, tsk…ABS-CBN/TFC still provides the kind of entertainment that indulges pinoy addiction for the cheap and repetitive themes and storylines which promote the status quo and reinforce small-mindedness, instead of motivating pinoys to rather challenge them.

    1. The Pnoy Jose Maria Sison power sharing coalition may soon come true. I mentioned already in past articles the leftist, mainstream CCP/NDF connection with the dictator Mr. Aquino. If this happens we will surely become a communist state.

  15. An open letter to my supporters in the fight agianst corruption!

    I was shocked and dismayed today by the Senators who insisted that we provide evidence to prove our case against Chief Justice Corona.

    What is going on here? Don’t they read the news? Even my maid told me that Corona is guilty she said she read it in the newspaper and the grandmother of her cousin told her so to. If good hardworking simple people know that Corona is guilty how could these Senators even dare ask for proof.

    As you have seen over the past year ever person who has stood up to me turned out to be corrupt. I am pretty sure that these Senators are corrupt too.

    We should impeach them all in fact we should close down the Senate, they are the reason why your life is so bad. They are holding back the economy.

    On a happier note I finally reached the next level of angry bird. I have also been invited by President Obama to visit him he asked me if he could play with my new Iphone.

    When I visit President Obama I will be asking him to give me nuclear weapons to help us destroy all our enemies, those among us and other countries who hate us because we are Filipino.

    Your Truly

    PNut

  16. TARLAC CITY—Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI)

    inhibition of Chief Justice Renato Corona in the

    of the vast sugar plantation owned by President
    Benigno Aquino III’s family and his relatives.
