According to PNoy: Supreme Court is wrong, #DAP is right

In essence, what Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III said in his address to the public today on the issue of the fiasco surrounding the now-illegal Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) consists of two key messages:

(1) The DAP was used in good faith; and,

(2) The Philippine Supreme Court was wrong to rule it ‘unconstitutional’.

noynoy_aquinoTo make the notion of ‘good faith’ accessible to a bigger swath of his audience, President BS Aquino used a purported text message sent to him earlier in which the use of the DAP was likened to how one might decide to park on a No Parking zone to assist someone in need of emergency help. BS Aquino would like us to believe that this scenario presents us with a clear either-or situation. Get away with breaking the law to attend to an emergency or ignore an emergency to comply with the law.

The fact is, that scenario really is not strictly either-or as you can actually do both. To that supposed conundrum, the resolution is quite simple…

Go ahead and help the guy in need, then pay the fine if you get issued a parking ticket.

Note that the Big Assumption there, however, is that a person was actually helped by that hypothetical illegal parker.

Nonetheless, good intentions are like assholes. Everyone’s got them. Mass murders have been committed and wars started because some bozo thought that he or she was doing the human race a great favour. That is why we have courts and justice systems. You need a coherent framework to provide perspective that third parties can use to objectively evaluate the goodness or badness of your actions. Without that mechanism, everyone would have license to shoot anyone they personally deem not worthy of their place under the sky.

Then again, that sort of sounds like the sort of thing that happens in societies like the Philippines, doesn’t it? Go figure.

Just the same, as President of the Philippines, BS Aquino should serve as the exemplar of subjection to the rule of Law. And the Supreme Court has the final word when it comes to interpreting that law. Aquino knows that perfectly well. He wouldn’t have spent megabucks to fund the impeachment of former Chief Justice Renato Corona in 2012 if he did not recognise the power wielded by a judge’s words and the finality the bang of a gavel puts in these.

Unfortunately, the message he brought across in his address to the public today was tantamount to an insult on the Filipinos’ intelligence and a flick of the bird to the SC. He even repeated the same flawed take on the fiscal position of the Philippines he articulated in his first State of the Nation Address in 2010 (the historical details of which I repackaged for the occasion this morning).

What a guy.

This is the man Filipinos selected to be their leader in a colossal collective lapse in judgement. But that’s water under the bridge. The question now is what happens next. President BS Aquino said his government will be seeking Congressional support in appealing (possibly overturning) the SC ruling. How he’s going to do that now that there is no more pork or DAP to dangle in front of greedy snouts will be an interesting puzzle to ponder while we wait for the next episode in this teleserye.

Everytime I read one of your posts, I not only get more angry about that retard, but my stomach wants to turn looking at his idiotic face.

So may I suggest you use the picture of a coconut instead? It would be obvious who you are talking about and since both have just about the same IQ it would be more than suitable and easier on my stomach. Thanking you in advance, I remain your humble fan

“President BS Aquino said his government will be seeking Congressional support in appealing (possibly overturning) the SC ruling.”

Probably something I wasn’t paying attention to back in school…

So despite the SC having the final say in the interpretation of the law, their ruling can potentially be overturned by the legistative (with the coaxing of the executive) branch?


Bobo ka talaga Noynoy, sinayang mo lang ang pera ng taumbayan sa airtime kanina para magpaliwanag na walang saysay. Kung mali ang Supreme Court sa desisyon nila, pumunta ka sa North Korea at baka magkasundo pa kayo ni Kim Jong Un. Halatang ayaw mong napagsasabihan ka ng mas marunong sayo.

Anarkiya ang gusto ng tarantadong presidente natin. Gawin mo na lang ang trabaho mo BS dahil tuwing nagsasalita ka lalo mo lang pinapakita na mahina ang ulo mo.

Isn’t there a saying that “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”? Now in the Philippines it’s paved with “good faith”. Speaking of ‘hell’, the late Pres. MLQ is surely getting his wish. AbNoy would park in a No Parking area not to help truly hapless persons, but to bribe cohorts into destroying enemies including a SC Chief Justice. But, of course, it’s all done in “good faith.” Now if you’ve been issued a ticket for violating a No Parking rule, you just go to the President and let him either pay for it or have the issuer… Read more »
By watching him and grasping all what he said this night it’s not hard to tell that our President is a horse shit. And who ever wrote his speech, I may say more research kid; it’s not because you came from the same school, you need to lick his ASS. How the hell can a President like BS PNoy lead our country who don’t possesses the attitude of being a leader? that knows how to follow rule, knows how to listen to the people and knows how to respect law! OMG, we are going down to the pit definitely once… Read more »

Pnoy is a destroyer.

He has castrated the legislature of its power of the purse. He has decapitated the judiciary with the help of bribes and favors. He has infested the executive branch with cronies and yes men. He has polluted the minds of the public with his PR obsession.

What’s next? How much more damage can he cause to our institutions?

Stealing Billions of Pesos, is not like violating a “No Parking” ordinance. Swindling the Filipino taxpayers’ money; like swindling to own the Hacienda Luisita are much more different.

Show us where you spent the money. Show us the movements of the DAP Funds. Where you spent them. We need good concerned citizens, with good knowledge in Accounting and Auditing to Audit these expenses. To see is to believe…

Aquino is not even a Lawyer…and he tells us the SC decision is wrong; and he is right.

Why Mar Roxas pretends not know anything about it? Pare-pareho sila mga tarantado…

it is no secret that Aquino has alleged “enemies” in the SC. The court was illegally stacked with GMA appointee’s in violation of the Philippine Constitution. When on her way out of office GMA was supposedly not allowed to appoint a SC justice within a certain time frame(90 days is it?) before leaving office….but she did. Now that was just GMA’s way of protecting her own self-interests and as a way of leveraging her ‘alleged’ fued with the incoming yellow-shirts.(“Hey was someone pissing on your shirt today?”). This is all a smoke screen. When was the last time anyone actually… Read more »
There is nothing wrong about PNOY asking the SC to reconsider its previous ruling on the DAP. The decision was not written in granite. It can always be reversed. And if it is not, it does no affirm the principle that the SC is infallible. It can always eat back its words. Pinoys take to heart the precept that the SC interprets the constitution taking that great leap of faith in that classic case of Marbury v. Madison delivered by Chief Justice John Marshall of the Federal Supreme Court in 1803. But they failed to understand the nuances of that… Read more »

DAP was done in good[?] faith to support various government projects[??].

Yet, he doesn’t (perhaps willingly) allocate fund for his various executive cabinets: health, social welfare, education, infrastructure, etc.

Are we still a Colony or a Commonwealth of the U.S.A.? Legal precedence for the U.S. A.; is for the U.S. A. Legal precedence for the Republic of the Philippines is for the Republic of the P{hilippines.

Noynoy might as well have said, ‘Believe my bullshit or not, I won’t budge an inch’. Ah ha ha. What a loser trying to bring along the Filipino people to Hell.


I’ll not be surprised if the whole or majority of the SC Justices will be impeached because Penoy is throwing a tantrum.

The more Penoy goes LOOK AT MUH ACHIEVEMENTS BECAUSE OF DAP, the more people get pissed off. Even the masa and ignorant people are hurting and it might be a trigger to the end of his reign.


Rhea Santos to Winnie Monsod:

Rhea: Are you satistfied with his [Noynoy’s] explanation last night about his DAP

Winnie: Yes, I am satisfied with his explanation

Winnie: The supreme court didn’t say that DAP is unconstitutional, it even said that it is a good program.

After watching the interview, I think Winnie should stop calling herself a professor and a political expert. Unless she is also under the payroll of Ngoyngoy? Just asking.

Thomas Jefferson

Please somebody out there… Please put that son of Cory to the test. Ask the Supreme Court to declare him in contempt of court! He tries hard to say that he is right in trying to make the court look bad. He dictates to the SC what he wants to be done.

PNoy on DAP: ‘Hindi tayo lumabag sa batas’ The President insists that the DAP is not unconstitutional despite the Supreme Court decision saying otherwise. Oh come on Pnoy! Don’t tell the justices of the Supreme Courts erred? They won’t become justices of the SC if they had not have the credentials to fit in the positions they are occupying now. They’d studied law and most of them excelled as cum laude from top law schools here and abroad. They are the final arbiter when it comes to the interpretation of the law. With the thirteen-zero vote as to the unconstitutionality… Read more »
