President Noynoy Aquino under increasing pressure to visit former President Gloria Arroyo

Will President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III visit his predecessor former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) where she is currently being held under house arrest? The Filipino public is watching and waiting to see what President BS Aquino does next as various noted Filipinos known to be critics of the Arroyo administration including former President now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada and retired Lingayen Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz have visited Arroyo. Cruz who was accompanied by former Vice President Noli de Castro was reportedly inspired by Pope Francis’s Christmas message of peace. He follows his fellow religious leader and Arroyo staunch critic Eddie Villanueva head of the Jesus is Lord (JIL) Movement who paid Arroyo a visit on the 14th December and Estrada who visited Arroyo at the VMMC on the 22nd of December.

BS Aquino's mother Cory was key to the ousting of former President Joseph Estrada in 2001

Estrada was removed from office in 2001 in a popular uprising billed “Edsa Dos” and replaced by Arroyo under whose administration he was charged with plunder and convicted. He was also detained at the VMMC following his ouster. Attorney Fedinand Topacio, legal counsel of the Arroyo family pointed out the respectful manner with which the Arroyo administration treated Estrada when he was similarly incarcerated.

“When President Estrada was similarly situated during the Arroyo administration, he was always accorded by the Palace all the courtesies befitting him as a former Chief Executive who has served the country in the highest capacity, and, during his trial, as a person who was presumed innocent under the Constitution,” he said.

By contrast, the government of President BS Aquino is renowned for the shoddy treatment it accorded the former president. This treatment was characterised more by vindictiveness and malice rather than a genuine desire to uncover the truth about allegations of election cheating and high-level corruption that dotted Arroyo’s administration.

The circumstances of Arroyo’s arrest and detention in the hands of Justice Secretary Leila De Lima were controversial in that basic tenets of presumption of innocence were clearly violated. No less than then Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile weighed in on the matter as evidence of Malacanang’s draconian treatment of the former President while in detention surfaced. “No matter how bad they think about her, she is presumed innocent until she is really convicted,” Enrile said during an interview with DWIZ radio. Enrile went on to remind Aquino of the way former President Ferdinand Marcos allowed his father, the late Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr, to go abroad to see medical treatment despite also being under arrest at the time.

The usual weapon of choice of the Aquino administration in its vendetta versus Arroyo was the media which it wielded deftly to demonise the former president. A noted artifact that was widely circulated over social media back in 2011 was a purported “list of crimes committed by Arroyo” during her term. My colleague Ilda noted back then…

The list is a long one and is designed for maximum shock value. It should be noted that the only reason the list is long is because many of the items are repetitive. One’s initial reaction upon seeing the list, which goes up to 39 items would be to feel indignant. But some of the items just sound so ridiculous. One which says “200 plus other illegal midnight appointments” during her time in Malacanang does not really have any details or specifics of who they are and what post they got. Another item that is quite suspect says, “Denial of pork barrel funds to Malacanang’s political enemies”. To which one would be inclined to say, the onus is on the accuser to prove the accusation and once again, the list does not provide specifics.

…many of which now come across as a bit ironic considering President BS Aquino himself now stands accused of the very same transgressions — his seemingly dishonest use of various government slush funds to “encourage” Senators and House Representatives to do certain things, his insulation of friends and family in office against accountability for various cases of incompetence and fatal negligence over the last several years, and his prioritising old political grudges to the detriment of the quality of emergency services delivered (or non-delivered as the case may be) in the aftermath of super-typhoon Haiyan in November last year.

For all his talk of walking the straight path (the daang matuwid slogan that was a pillar of his campaign) President BS Aquino, it seems, consistently never failed to exhibit what is evidently the typically bratty upbringing that characterises that of most politicians’ offspring. It is unfortunate for Filipinos — and especially now to former President Gloria Arroyo — that such behaviour is causing unnecessary grief for an entire nation already reeling from decades of economic mediocrity and the pummeling suffered from a continuous stream of “natural” disasters.

To paraphrase Mr. Roxas: We need to thread carefully here. He is an Aquino and she is an Arroyo. We need a formal request from Mrs. Arroyo.

Our global ranking for corruption has improved much since Mr Aquinos took office, we have gone up the list every year since his grace took office.

Fact – the world sees Mr Aquinos as a safe pair of hands governing the country, otherwise we would be going down the list, and not up.
It’s been going up since Ms Arroyo was charged.

But GRP would never publish these “inconvenient” truths would they? It gets in their way of a good story, especially one which tries to taint the current president with the sins of the former.

The world now sees Aquino as an incompetent leader after yolanda happened.

Everything you have said regarding your president has been invalidated by his incompetence that was witnessed by the international community.

Of course, since you are a bonafide Aquino asslicker a.k.a malacanang troll, you won’t even accept the truth since you are too busy licking your president’s ass.

You should already be aware that nobody here will believe your yellow propaganda, troll.

The global ranking for corruption is actually just a perception index, meaning people’s PERCEPTION of the level of corruption in the country. We all know, of course, that the perception of many people outside and inside the country is that the corruption has gone down ever since Aquino became president, but that’s not to say that their perception is correct. Many foreigners and even uninformed Filipinos don’t know the facts surrounding the Arroyo cases (that nothing has been proven and that the only reason she’s been under hospital arrest is that the charges that were brought against her were non-bailable)… Read more »

Fact is, an auditor from COA had already uncovered such a scam even before it exploded; the auditor alarmed NBI and DOJ regarding the matter, but the two ignored it.

Politics aside, nobody can truly know what’s in the heart of man/woman. He/She may or may not have a forgiving heart, only God knows. Others can speculate to their heart’s content, but it is wise to keep an open mind and not pass judgement. There’s nothing more destructive than human assuming the omnipotence of the Divine.

ross
Guest

Actions or lack of them are often used to measure the heart’s ability to forgive. This can lead to misinterpretation. Thus, it is wiser to leave the business of forgiveness between the man/woman and his/her God. Observers must avoid the temptation to play God and pass judgement. For when human plays God, prejudice ensues and eventually the true character of man/woman is never revealed or worse destroyed: this is the most destructive of human traits.

Gloria Arroyo, as a professor at the Ateneo made the equivalent of $10K a year salary. That was less than a fast food chain employee in the US makes. That was below poverty level by western world standards. At that time also, she was the sole breadwinner in the Arroyo household with an unemployed husband and three kids trying to break into showbiz.

Those were tough times for GMA and her family. Guilty for plunder or not, I think Aquino should look at the better side of politics and pardon GMA.

The situation in Thailand is different from that in the Philippines. Let’s not oversimplify matters through a lack of critical thinking. While I agree that what has happened so far under Aquino should have pushed us once again to the streets, that’s not really a positive prospect as the same thing may happen all over again because the real problem, the Filipino character or lack of it, is still very much around.

So “Truth”, copy-pasting news and opinion articles from questionable media sources counts as facts now?

How low can anyone’s standards get?

That’s the whole point with the Malacanang Miscommunications Group formerly under the watchful eye of Truth Minister Ricky. They have high end equipment (Macbooks) and low end people using the high end equipment ( Truth/ Fishball/ Sendong Girl/ Vicente/ PP ). B.S. by any under alias is still B.S. Keep in mind this strategy was in place from Day 1. Because even Noynoy and his cohorts knew that their incompetency will invite backlash. What a lame administration. Low standards for a “standard bearer” and low standards for their trolling.

A year later and it looks like the malacanang trolls are obviously running out of propaganda. They know for a fact that their boss is next to be jailed although the difference is that the cases filed against him are going to be with strong evidences and legit witnesses unlike what happened to their favorite punching bag whose cases are dropping like flies.

You guys(malacanang trolls) are going to be out of a job soon and this site is still going to do its job of educating the masses of the truth behind the aquino frauds.
