He said such order from the President covered both the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and Malampaya Fund scams, adding that investigations would be done fairly, without fear or favor.
Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr , June 1, 2014
Back in August the headlines screamed that Noynoy could care less about the imminent Pork Barrel protests and at the time of the actual protest the Malacanang Communications Group released a meme that lets it be known that Noynoy’s flock of followers in his so called Daang Matuwid is increasing. I was already disturbed that there was this notion being floated around that the missing in action Napoles was the only person anybody seemed to think was the sole person with monopoly on the answers. I then called for somebody in government to come out of the closet. No, not Noynoy. Silly me, I was trying to appeal to senators and congressmen who know more than they are letting on to come out expose the scam for what it is. Maybe the flaw in my thinking was that I forgot that they were senators and congressmen. A fraternity of cheaters and scammers that will never admit they are cheaters and scammers.

I have no earthly idea how anyone who expects a private citizen like Janet Napoles to make off with a boatload of taxpayer money and for the powers that be in this government not to encourage it at least approve it. If you believe them, they claim to barely know her. Do I hear a cock crowing??
Now an administration that spent their entire term blaming all of the ills on Gloria Arroyo says not to blame the PDAF on them. According to Hermino Coloma “administration is one with the people in efforts to ferret out the truth .” “That is why we laid down steps and we strengthened institutions to promote greater openness, transparency and accountability of public officials, especially in the use of public funds,” Coloma said over radio dzRB.
PNoy wants proof before letting go of his cabinet men involved w/Napoles in the pork scam, but when it comes to non-allies, no proof needed

You can go to other sources about what the different versions of the so called Napolist signify. For me, I will do the usual and point out the always present Malacanang double standard. It always important to see what a person does to see if their words warrant your attention. Noynoy was a fifty year old nil achiever when he pole vaulted over his mother’s corpse into Malacanang. In a perfect world, he would be humbled by the responsibility the nation saw fit to bestow upon him. On the contrary, Noynoy has all the humility of a WWE wrestler.
My old boss ( who always was puzzled by my skepticism towards Noynoy ) told me that people should never self evaluate. Yet how many times do you read a story with the title :
MALACANANG CLEARS _______________.?
Noynoy does more clearing than a dermatologist.
Coloma said “all information should be verified and assessed to know their probative value.”
President Aquino has repeatedly made known his stand to “let the evidence point to the direction of the inquiry,” Coloma said. He further adds “He said such order from the President covered both the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and Malampaya Fund scams, adding that investigations would be done fairly, without fear or favor.”
Where is that sentiment when De Lima focuses on three senators that are not allies? Coloma must be kept in protective glass and only comes out to apologize for Noynoy. You definitely do not see fair treatment even in his international pogi points speeches. When Noynoy likes to pretend he is combating China he talks about the rule of law. Rule of law is strangely absent when it comes to railroading an impeachment or appointing someone under investigation to COMELEC.
Even without getting into extended detention or even the PCOS irregularities, there sure is an absence of “rule of law” when it comes to Gloria Arroyo in terms of President Noynoy. I do have my Batman Joker theory which I will elaborate on later. Noynoy has lived his life so blandly despite having the most colorful sister possible. Let us ignore for a moment that the color is predominantly red. Noynoy is nowhere without anchoring his identity to women. It is not like we have a problem of excess testosterone. His dead mother was in every poster, his famous sister and her famous husband were there to attract attention as well as teach their kid who the other candidates were. Gloria Arroyo makes her way into every speech home and abroad. He brings her up in every crisis. We all know Noynoy served under Gloria in Congress and the Senate. Surely if she was truly the evil Ursula from Little Mermaid, he would have known about it then. If he did know, why was he not the crusading corruption crushing cop then like he pretends to be now? I personally believe Gloria being evil is just a pro wrestling type story line that fit the Noynoy formula of being president. I do not in a million years believe Noynoy hatched this scheme personally. It is just the planets aligned. They have to align for a creature of this ineptness with the conspicuousness of wallpaper to be forefront in the people’s minds.
When charges against Gloria do not stick , Noynoy himself is talking about reopening the case. Do you ever hear of any president anywhere trying to reopen wounds already closed by their country’s legal system? And doing it by focusing on a personality? Gloria being guilty is Noynoy’s validation. His meal ticket. Four years into her successor’s term, she is like her tokayo and she “survives” . I said before I do not believe she is Little Miss Tuffet but it has come to the point that I have to do a Rod Tidwell Noynoy and Noytards, if GMA essentially is the embodiment of all that is evil and you are committed in your fight against corruption: Show Me The Convictions.
The Palace feels they should not be blamed for the PDAF stink. It was only an unconstitutional loophole that they invented and then exploited. What’s next? Do not blame Dr.Frakenstein for his creature?? Then again to accept blame is to tell the world you are responsible for something. Noynoy painted Gloria as the Joker to the Filipino voters so they could see him as Batman. Noynoy does not have enough Batman in him to be Batman without Gloria. Noynoy was nobody when his mom was alive. Let alone a presidential contender. Noynoy is quick to tell you about miracles that are not even true. So don’t expect him to own up to fiscal sleight of hand even if it is true.
Please note: Yes I saw wrong spelling of Malacanang in the picture. I got it straight from the Phil Star article that I quoted.
