Binay backs out from much-awaited 27th November debate, Trillanes relieved!

Mutineer-turned-‘senator’ Antonio Trillanes IV can now heave a sigh of relief. Vice President Jejomar Binay has reportedly backed out from a challenge to a debate he had issued to Trillanes mid-October this year. After some dithering on both camps, the 27th of November was agreed as the date of the face-off between the two. Binay […]

Eat my shorts: Vice President Jejomar Binay snubs a Senate Blue Ribbon Committee ‘invitiation’

So Vice President Jejomar Binay reportedly “snubbed” the “hearing the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee set just for him.” What will the Philippine Senate do now? Sue the Vice President of the Philippines? Good luck with that. Getting even a mountain of “evidence” collected in these “hearings” organised and filed in a proper complaint in a […]

PNoy’s endorsement of a 2016 presidentiable: important because Filipinos are too lazy to think

According to presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda, the biggest boost a presidential candidate can get in the 2016 elections is an endorsement from current President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III. “Everyone wants his anointment,” Lacierda reportedly said. Indeed, so important is this “anointment” that even presidential nemesis Vice President Jejomar Binay is willing to sellout to […]

Letting PNoy get away with the #DAP sets a precedent for future presidents to violate the law

Some members of the Philippine Senate have recently demonstrated how helpless the Filipino public is against the ruling oligarchy. The recently-held “question and answer” session about the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) turned into an opportunity for the senators allied with President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino to defend the administration’s unconstitutional use of public funds. No […]

PNoy and supporters get desperate in defending the DAP

Malacanang apologists were quiet for a while after the Supreme Court declared the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) unconstitutional. They were most likely too stumped to respond because for one, they could not get their heads around the technical details of the ruling and two; they were probably too shocked after the revelation that their idol, […]

Ph President BS Aquino doesn’t care if he broke the law while handling taxpayers’ money

According to Philippine Presidential Communications Operations Office head Herminio Coloma Jr., President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino won’t apologize for the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program or DAP after it was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. He insists that “the executive branch ‘exercised good faith and due diligence’ in accordance with existing laws and relevant auditing […]

Can Senator Franklin Drilon survive Sandra Cam’s version of the Napoles List?

Senate President Franklin Drilon may have escaped scrutiny after his seemingly baffling ommission from the the respective versions of the Napoles List bandied by President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila De Lima, and former Senator and Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson, but he apparently did not escape […]

Philippine Senate ‘probe’ on pork mule Ruby Tuason a complete waste of time

The thing with Senate “probes” is they really don’t amount to much beyond serving as a sideshow to a Filipino public hungry for tele-intriga. Presumably, a legislative body getting involved in a criminal investigation is investing that time in the aid of legislation. What kind of legislation will be an outcome of this latest Senate […]
