In just 6 years, Noynoy Aquino’s record of failure is now worse than all of the Marcos years

Filipinos who can’t stop talking about the “horrors” of the Martial Law years under the late former President Ferdinand Marcos are starting to come across as hopeless and desperate for attention. While the atrocities against the victims should be condemned, their cases were already brought to court and won compensation. It is now time to move on to atrocities happening at present times.

Dead for almost 30 years but still being blamed for PNoy's failures
Dead for almost 30 years but still being blamed for PNoy’s failures
Advocates of human rights abuses should understand that the new generation of Filipinos today are not interested in the past because they are fighting a different kind of tyranny that is even more difficult to defeat compared to what Filipinos were facing during the Marcos regime.

Filipinos today are being lulled into thinking that the country is safe in the hands of President Benigno Simeon Aquino and his allies – members of the oligarchy. In fact, as early as 1986, after the late former President Cory Aquino took over from Marcos, Philippine mainstream media and other showbiz personalities allied with her government created the illusion that the country is better off under the Aquinos. The Filipino people have been lied to for over 30 years.

Because the media tend to gloss over the incompetence and failures of succeeding administrations starting with and especially Cory Aquino after Marcos left, Filipinos have become their worst enemies. They have become apathetic and indifferent to the issues plaguing the nation because they have been made to believe that the kind of thievery and abuse now is nothing compared to the Marcos years. That notion is false. Some claim that the harassment, abuse and pilfering of public funds today may not be as blatant as it was during the Martial Law years but it is still happening. Mainstream media is just not highlighting them enough.

Aquino supporters keep harping about the so-called “freedom” Filipinos are enjoying today but majority are squandering their freedom and don’t appreciate how they got it in the first place. The fact of the matter is, the people who went against the so-called “dictator” then cared enough to demand change and they weren’t afraid to die for their principles. That is not something we can expect from a lot of the Filipinos of today. Most of them are just allowing government abuse to go unchecked and are resigned to thinking that they are helpless against it anyway. You can say that they have lost their fighting spirit and couldn’t be bothered to go against the tyranny of the second Aquino administration. It seems love for the country is not enough to compel majority of Filipinos to do something drastic. In this sense, the situation in Philippine society now is worse than the Martial Law years.

Instead of talking about the horrors of the Martial Law years, human rights advocates should be talking more about the horrors perpetrated during the Aquino regime. After all, they are still happening now. BS Aquino’s list of failures is getting longer and one suspects that there will be more to come prior to him stepping down in a few months. Here’s a reminder of some of the highlights of his fiascos:

1. Illegal detention of former President Gloria Arroyo

BS Aquino’s centerpiece for his “Daang Matuwid” is falling apart. Even before he won the presidency, he had been working on vilifying Arroyo to make the case for her continued illegal detention more convincing to the gullible public. Unfortunately for him, Arroyo found a powerful ally in world-renowned international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin-Clooney. She recently won the case she brought to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention with a ruling saying that Arroyo’s detention is arbitrary and illegal under international law. The court is recommending Arroyo be granted bail and compensated accordingly.

Malacanang is pretending they had nothing to do with her illegal detention even though the cases filed against her were based on trumped-up charges and were done in haste. The UN body also noted that Justice Secretary Leila De Lima defied the Supreme Court when she prevented Arroyo from leaving for overseas to seek treatment for her illness. It’s no secret that De Lima was under pressure from her boss BS Aquino to carry out his orders to detain Arroyo at all cost.

If Filipinos do not see this as a case of abuse of power, then they have lost their moral compass. If detaining a former President under false charges can be done without repercussion, then what chance does the average Filipino have against this kind of tyranny?

2. Thievery and mismanagement of public funds under the guise of mechanisms such as Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) and Presidential slush funds

This is an example of subtle ways the Aquino government is using taxpayers’ money unconstitutionally. Ignorant Filipinos — and they are the majority — do not realize how much of their money the current administration has wasted on nothing of substance. Billions of pesos could be unaccounted for because they were given as bribes to members of Congress who then gave it to fake NGOs. So far, no one in the Aquino government has been prosecuted for DAP shenanigans despite the Supreme Court’s ruling that the use of “savings” from another branch is illegal.

In addition to the DAP fiasco, billions of pesos in funds generated from the Malampaya Natural Gas Facility seems to be unaccounted for too:

Malampaya has been supplying natural gas to three major power plants in Luzon and the court decision was sought to safeguard the fund from possible misuse.

Previously, a special audit report cited cases of questionable fund use.

One of these was the P900 million supposedly released to the Department of Agrarian Reform, but was instead allegedly allocated to fake nongovernment organizations. Currently, the Office of the Ombudsman is probing those implicated in in the irregular deals.

As of March 2015, the government has received over P208 billion from the natural gas project since it began earning from it in the early 2000s.

The question now is, what has the Aquino government done with the funds? If it is just sitting around in a bank account somewhere, then that’s proof of his incompetence. He could have used that to fix vital infrastructure and modernize the country’s defense force. I would not be surprised if he has authorized the use of the funds for campaign purposes in order to ensure his party retain power in the coming election.

3. Under the BS Aquino government, the Philippines has earned top awards for the worst Airport, worst traffic and worst country to die in.

And I wish I was making this up. The Manila International Airport or what some prefer to call the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has remained consistently at the top of annual surveys as the worst airport in the world. Respondents to surveys conducted by the Guide to Sleeping at Airports website voted the airport in for its “dilapidated facilities”, “dishonest” airport workers – particularly taxi drivers – long waiting times and “rude” staff. Most of us were not surprised by the feedback. The terms “dishonest” and “rude” are indeed, synonymous with the name Aquino too.

The Philippines under PNoy became tops at being the worst in various global surveys.
The Philippines under PNoy became tops at being the worst in various global surveys.
As if having the worst airport wasn’t enough, Metro Manila was also named as having the “worst traffic on Earth,” according to a GPS-based navigation app, Waze. The result of their global evaluation was also not surprising to the hapless motorists who get stuck on the road for hours on a daily basis. For almost six years, BS Aquino government did nothing to improve road quality and infrastructure in the historic road called EDSA. It’s baffling why the son of “People Power” icons did not prioritize fixing the traffic chaos that has only gotten worse each year he has been in office.

From the same evaluation, the Philippines was also ranked as the 9th worst place to drive in the world. If another global survey was conducted rating the condition of the country’s public transport system, I’m pretty sure the Philippines would be among the worst countries in terms of public transport.

A recent study commissioned by Singapore nonprofit Lien Foundation also highlighted that the Philippines is one of the worst places to die in. Out of a list 80 countries included in the study, the country ranked 78th – nearly at the bottom:

The low ranking of the Philippines in the overall scores of quality of death index was attributed to the severe shortage of specialized palliative care professionals, lack of government-led strategy for the development and promotion of national palliative care, limited number of government subsidies or programs for individuals accessing palliative care services, and limited public understanding and awareness of palliative care services.

The Aquino government’s incompetent cabinet members whose priorities are misguided have only resulted in the Philippines becoming one of the worst places to live and die in. Who in their right mind would want this kind of wretchedness to go on? Only those who have been brainwashed by mainstream media would.

The list of BS Aquino’s failures is long. I can actually write a book about it. But since I do not have time to do that, I will leave you with a link to an unofficial list of his failures from political advocate Showbiz Government here.

Pnoy and Roxas has nothing to do with the growing BPO in the country and they have no right to brag about it.The reason why Philippines is being chosen over the other countries despite bad weather condition, low quality infrastructure and poor assistance and cooperation from the government was that Filipinos are just simply one of the best in when it comes to English communication as compared to other countries having English as the second language.

To Cherry,
Yes you were correct when you said filipinos speak english well.

So the credit is for both the filipinos and the present admin.

The foreign investors would not be confident to put extend their business here in the Philippines if Pnoy has nothing to do with the growing BPO industry and the construction industry will not also grow rapidly without the foreign investor. Pnoy is a business minded person which lot of foreign investors took advantage of it because they knew that their business will gain lot of profits that is why the peso value had reached 44 pesos in the stock market during Pnoy’s term.

Just because “everyone else is guilty” does not get the person who’s supposed to be doing something about it off the hook.

The incumbent president may not have started it, but he sure as hell did not do anything about it.

The author wants us to move on and forget Marcos’ reign of terror, and seems to be Revisionist historian. No past president can ever come close to Marcos’ corruption, cryonism, plunder, and blatant disregard for human rights. True, Marcos is undoubtedly the smartest Philippine president but he’s also the best propagandist and manipulator.

If such were human rights violations back in martial law years, aren’t you a bit baffled that he’s not one of the victims?

yes, cory connived with Japan that made our foreign debt balloon to 5 billion, for she doesn’t want competition against meralco, their families have looted the funds of PLDT,PAL, and the rest of the marcos cronies wealth.

You know I’m actually starting to think that the Yolanda funds + donations are definitely considered now Ill-gotten wealth of the Aquinos.

I also wonder where the millions went for yolanda and sendong victims and if audit to the expenses were made (since their motto is transparency and d so called “walang corrupt walang mahirap”).
Cant find any report regarding the donations received and projects given to the victims.

Not the first time an Aquino in the high seat of power didn’t do a proper job with natural disaster recovery and management.
Though of course its even more apparent considering while Aquino was busy cracking down on supposed “crooks”, it was quite alright to not have a proper paper trail for funds meant to help those from recovering a natural disaster.

Despite Marcos’ abuses, he left us the 13th month pay. Aquino… would have probably shot down the proposal if it happened in his time.

MARCOS left us the MASAGANA99 legacy of Converting a quarter of a million peasants into landowner farmers, while this MAD PNOY continue his killings and looting the Philippine treasury for a 100 years of starting from his great grandmother isidra Aquino who are the family of Japanese collaborators and now Malaysian collaborators that made our country 3rd world status.

Generally, we lack discipline, respect and sense of nationalism. Kaya mahirap tayong umangat.

Discipline and respect, yes.

Nationalism here is false is over rated. Especially in the Philippines as it would imply that we have something to be proud of.

Proud to be a Filipino. Yeah sure….not!

This is bad and biased writing… How can anyone blame PNoy’s (or any president’s) 6 years of presidency for worst traffic, bad airport and bad palliative care?? Hahaha! We’ve been having it really bad for a long time now. And the traffic thing is according to “Waze Survey”, that probably only reinforces that Filipinos love to complain about traffic (and everything else). Even Gloria’s “illegal detention” is being taken against his 6-year reign? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying those are okay, but how can that be worse than all of Marcos years??? Lol.

Because the coconut in chief has not addressed or even seriously attempted to fix any of the problems. All they did was Band-Aid solutions. They rather concentrated on robbing the Filipino people blind.

Judging by your picture you know nothing about the Marcos years, so your opinion is based on second hand information.

I’m turning 50 and trust me, the Marcos years were by far superior to anything that came after him.

You’re absolutely right. During Marcos time a factory worker can already send his children to college because there were control over tuition fee hike and you have option to avail good quality education in governmentuniversities without shedding hundreds of thousands. UP during Marcos time is almost free. Public schools are also well off, you will not hear of any school where student sits under the tree during class because there is no enough class room. But now, what is happening? The first thing Aquino did is to change the history books and telll all student that Marcos 8s a bad… Read more »

And who do you think is manning the helm of this country? True, it is not Aquino’s fault that our country is in bad shape before June of 2010, but its been five years and what does he have to show for? Gloria’s detention is of course going to be taken against him because they railroaded the process. The Secretary of Justice herself (who is an appointee of the President, just in case you don’t know) masterminded the execution by barring the former president from boarding a plane. Now, we’re no experts on law but the UN body (who are… Read more »

The generations of people that have come along since 1975 have been spoon fed and have softened to the point that they do not even know how the world works.Their parents taught them that life was fair, that democracy is works and is great and if you work hard their will be a reward. Well, it is nothing like that kiddies. The world is not fair, you do not live in a democracy and if you work for a living you are a sucker! It is as simple as that. The blame belongs on these people’s parents for believing that… Read more »

The point is, we have to stop blaming the Marcoses, because they’re no longer in power now. The ones in power now should take responsibility for all the stuff that’s happening now, but instead they pass the buck. Whatever Marcos’ regime did, all the regimes that followed failed to undo the damage. In fact, some of them even worsened the damage, such as the current one. Their policy is, “Eh, buhay ka pa naman di ba?” and “Bahala kayo sa buhay ninyo!”

That is the thing. Its ironic and people/citizens aren’t seeing the Kamaganak Inc. well placed smokescreen because as PNOY’s term is ending and the Ninoy anniversary passed and all these things that were never improved or fixed during PNOY’s term, everyone is talking about the MARCOS timeline. In there lies the part of peoples’ lack of information and education regarding the issues and heavily relying on hearsay and the slanted media in general to know these things. Even since 2010, I knew what PNOY was capable of as a leader. So the citizens who voted him in shouldn’t be surprised… Read more »

“How can anyone blame PNoy’s (or any president’s) 6 years of presidency for worst traffic, bad airport and bad palliative care?” Because 6 years ago he was campaigning to be a leader to fix the “issues” the country had in the leadership position and apparently had an “answer”. And all those answers amounted to exactly those 3 things so far. “We’ve been having it really bad for a long time now.” And PNoy was suppose to make it good apparently. ‘Sya Nga’ was the battlecry for the Yellowtards who just thought he was the best rooster to win the 2010… Read more »

simple sir. yellowtards compare numbers. not facts or actual events. they compare numbers and put every effort to justify those numbers, numbers that are not even accurate.
to them 70,000 inhumane incarcerations outweigh a few inhumane incarcerations happening today.
the idiots would rather dwell and blame everything over something that happened 30 years ago than condemn those who secretly robbing them and selling our country piece by piece to foreign sovereignty because it is easier and well established. typical credo of those incapable of critical thinking. tatak NOYTARD.

I agree. The problems in our country is entrenched and all successive government from Marcos’s time has contributed/done little or nothing at all to improve our situation.All of them bears the blame for our current woes.But,so should the electorate.Every few years we have a chance to have our say and affect change, and every time we seemed to get fooled again and again. People needs to get themselves involved and informed.That would be the only way.

sayang! this is the only adjective i can say to the BSAquino government. He could have been a better President but he wasted all the chances because of his KKK and misdirected priority. He can’t even explain what happen to the Malampaya Fund….but they are more focus on the charges for GMA, which until now, walang napapatunayan! The next President must be sensible enough to know the needs of this country.

It isn’t, or shouldn’t be a blame game. You somehow acknowledged that during marcos’ time, people were willing to die to fight for their right, because marcos took them away. Now fast forward into the present time, I agree that those same principles should still be upheld by our countrymen, even today’s youth. Most of those advocating the #neveragain mentality wants our youth educated of the horrors that happened before so we may be more critical of the present day piliticos and public servants. It’s not about being red or yellow. By all means, lambast pnoy as much as you… Read more »

“But never forget the past or distort history as it happened.

When they blindly say the Marcos Years were bad and give nothing constructive about it but rejoice the 1987 constitution and Cory’s efforts like it was a breath of fresh air, its like the same idiots who thought the Spanish finally leaving was a time of grace for the country.
