Malacañang breathes down neck of Karen Jimeno

Poor Malacañang, again caught grasping at straws as they pick on the intriguing past of Karen Jimeno who is the star spokesman of the defense team in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona. In a “report” issued by ABS-CBN News yesterday, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte haughtily announces Malacañang’s looking forward to Jimeno’s “explanation” of a “statement” she signed “from the University of the Philippines College of Law faculty dated January 2010 urging then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo not to appoint a chief justice since it would be considered a midnight appointment”.

Just because Malacañang “expects” an explanation does not necessarily compel Jimeno to provide it, specially considering that the fact that Corona is being impeached implies that his being Chief Justice is de facto true in the eyes of the law — a fact that any position Jimeno held on the matter back in 2010 does not diminish. Perhaps Philippine President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III being the gated-village-raised politician’s son that he is has no concept of how true professionals deliver their service as per the terms of the engagement of their services regardless of what they think of the client.

Then again, Jimeno can simply say, “Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.”

Mr President, women have been known to change their minds, if you hadn’t noticed yet. Then again perhaps it becomes less surprising now why the President of the Philippines remains a swinging bachelor at 52.

Interestingly, this comes as new prosecution head Rudy Fariñas revealed yesterday what he really thinks of the Articles of Impeachment document that guides the prosecution’s case against Corona…

I read slowly and when the complaint was presented to us … when the last one had signed — there are many speed readers there — because so many had already signed, 188, my signature was no longer needed and the complaint was badly done.

[Translation by Interaksyon.com reporter]

Compared to a document signed by Jimeno in her capacity as a UP faculty member (which has no relevance to the dispensation of her duties now in her capacity as a member of the impeachment trial defense team), it is quite reasonable to presume that Fariñas’s interesting revelation would be the one that would require a bit more “explanation”.

Of course, how Noynoy chooses to spend his time, whether it be on making Valentines Day plans with current squeeze Grace Lee or digging up irrelevant dirt on impeachment defense lawyers is really up to him. Indeed, what he spends his time on provides the public with a good sense of what his priorities are and what constitutes his personal character

Perhaps a tad too late now, Lee hopes that she and the President be given the chance to privately “grow this relationship.”

“Privacy sana…a little bit of it so that the president and I could enjoy as we develop what we have now,” Lee said.

I’m sure the Philippine banking system, can relate Ms Lee.

At IKAW dapat mawala sa bansang Pilpinas. Dahil it’s not corruption ang problema ng bansa kundi ang dysfunctional culture that you’re uplifting.

Worshiping the Aquinos as demigods are just nothing but a sign of delusion. And you’re a very good example.

Oh yeah, dapat mawala sa serbisyo si Tito Noy mo because he didn’t do very well on his job. Iyan talaga ang gusto mo e: SHOWBIZ GOVERNMENT. 😛

Karen Jimeno apparently refused an invitation from Pnoy and ultimately refused his courtship and advances thats why Pnoy ordered his hounds to go after her. This information was revealed by a tall man who was seen with a small lady roaming around malacanang halls.

Ah, argumentum ad hominem! Way to go, Malacañang.

The problem with Malacañang resorting to ad hominems (aside from revealing the obvious fact that they have nothing better to say) is that they have far more skeletons in their closets. Recent developments have made Tupas far more questionable than Corona, and that’s just Tupas alone.

A growing number of people already see their actions in court as akin to “casting the first stone.” Dragging in the *irrelevant* pasts of the members of the Defense only puts them in even hotter water.

atty. jimeno knows that the supreme court itself ruled on this controversy, and as any lawyer, and non-lawyer, would know, they are the final interpreters of the law. “i submit, your honour.”

knowing this made me admire her even more for upholding the rule of law. it takes a lot of humility and guts to stand up for what you believe is right, even if it is unpopular, and even if it means facing a powerful adversary.

…and we all know that “humility” is something ms. valte was never known for, so…

…and they say that they are not, and have no intention of,involving themselves in the current impeachment proceedings.

Gin

Atty. Jimeno has nothing to worry. This is a simple case of respecting the rule of law. When an issue is being raised at the Supreme Court, any lawyer or agent of the law can express their opinions and raise their issue to the court. But when a decision is being rendered by the Supreme Court, all lawyers have to respect the decision because the SC is the final arbiter and the only authorized body to interpret the law, NOT ATTY. JIMENO, NOT ATTY. VALTE, AND DEFINITELY NOT THE BS PRESIDENT!!!

I feel bad that beautiful as she is, Karen Jimeno bothered to dignify Malacanang’s dirty trick with an answer. Not all questions/tirades are worth answering. Some are just BS that are better thrown right in the face of the one asking them.

This Valte is really good at causing my head ache.

i thought she handled it pretty well…and she said that it makes her an even more credible spokesperson because she is objective.

Where was her reply published? Are you referring to what the author suggests her reply to be, to quote,
“Then again, Jimeno can simply say, “Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.””

Ms. Jimeno should preserve her dignigty by not minding the toon characters Valtic (“tupak”?) and Pnoy (“Bugok”?). She should just pray for them that they may think and do good so that the Filipino Nation may not be slashed with soo much punishments (non-stop typhoon, flooding, earthquakes and what else). The Filipinos have suffered much already from the wrath brought by the yellow family and friends.

Hmm.. sounds like valte is bitching. but i guess that comes with realization that she’s no match for the star spokesperson of the defense panel, both in beauty in brains.
which reminds me, is there something going on between valte and lacierda, we saw them sweet (his arms around her) when they thought nobody was already minding them during the tail-end, romantic fireworks display of the black eyed peas concert? chismis!!!

“Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.”

Nice explanation. And I say that with sarcasm. Women are fickle minded so it’s okay to have a change of perspective… That is just lame. Karen Jimeno is a two-faced attention seeking b. She’s just a pretty face without a backbone. She feels so confident under Cuevas. I can see a winning case for the prosecution. They just have to play the cards right.

explain what? karen jimeno’s fickle mindedness or the winning case for the prosecution?

Y’know, if you really had something substantial to say you would have gotten straight to the point with your first comment.

Just sayin’.

Daido Katsumi

Obvious troll is obvious.

Honestly speaking, Karen Jimeno sees what’s right she has seen Cuevas as one the best. Don’t see a winning case for the prosecution because they are so stupid just like you and your fellow zombies.

THIS is how Yellow minds work. Maybe you’re a fan of Lacierda and Abigail Valte. A troll who approves this trial by publicity and wants the attention-seeking prosecution to win. 😛

twoface
Guest

Obvious troll is obvious.—–> uhm, okay.

She has seen what’s right when she signed that document against midnight appointees. But what happened now? Change of heart, change of mind? What exactly?

auriga

Judging from your attitude, no amount of explanation from Ms. Jimeno will ever convince you.

twoface

My attitude? What attitude? Aha! I know. The “different opinion” attitude. Okay, whatever.
No amount of explanation? The “Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.” explanation? Surprisingly, you were convinced. How gullible.

I think you’re missing the point either.

Like I said, that’s how Yellow minds work.

There is a simple exlanation to why Jimeno is supporting CJ Corona now despite being against the idea of GMA appointing the CJ before. 1. PNoy and his minions allegedly used blackmail to forced the 188 congressmen to sign the impeachment complaint against Corona. That alone probably convinced Jimeno to sign up as part of the defense team. 2. Members of the Supreme Court already ruled that Corona’s appointment as legit and Jimeno is just recognising their authority on the matter. And like I said in my previous article: “…it was the Philippines’ Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) that “unanimously”… Read more »

Now, that’s a better explanation. Not the “Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.” You’re probably smarter than Jimeno too.

Are you saying Jimeno responded based on what is written in the above? But what is written is what the author suggests, not what she actually said.

‘Then again, Jimeno can simply say, “Well I’ve changed my mind since. Deal with it.”’

I myself personally thought that PGMA cannot appoint a chief justice during the 90-day ban considering previous decisions of the SC against the appointment of RTC judges. But then when I read the decision in de Castro vs JBC, the SC declared that the appoint of the CJ is constitutional based on their considered opinion. Considering that the SC is the ultimate judge on constitutionality, I respect its decision. That is our law.

At the end of the day, Bernas pretty much said that the constitution never meant government to operate in a vacuum. Of course, the Yellow People would rather have that vacuum.
