Noynoy Aquino

Obsessive Assumptions


Sad it is to see the start of the decay of the Philippine democratic society.

Obsessed with the assumption that his mandate to govern is solely to punish the corruptors and rid the government of corruption, Noynoy Aquino, scion of the erstwhile cornerstones of democracy, has caused to have the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to be impeached.

He has presumed that Renato Corona, the impeached Chief Justice, have favored the side of  former President Gloria Arroyo in the rulings that have come down regarding the cases of the latter.

The Articles of impeachment conveyed to the Senate for the final decision have contained mostly, if not all, assumptions.

And, if I might add, the reason why Noynoy’s mania to castigate Gloria Arroyo has reached blank walls is that his legal panel to prosecute is in reality inept. The panel appears to be new to this prosecution game, especially when the principal target, CGMA, did not actually receive any  illegitimate money to prove corruption. All she has to say is she did not know about those things.

The next recourse to convict CGMA is, of course, to bring down any barrier or hindrance to the prosecution, which actually is the justice system as personified by the Chief Justice, Renato Corona, who finally got piqued and finally says in public what a lot of people think—–that Noynoy is aiming to create a dictatorship. Coming from the Chief Justice, what a lot of people presume may now be true, that Noynoy is getting rid of the chief barrier to his dictator motives, which is in the person of the Chief Interpreter of the Constitution, Renato Corona.

This man, Renato Corona, together with the associate justices, is that one person that keeps the situation at its legal level. He shields the country from the onslaughts of anarchy.

I am not now constrained to ask that when finally the yellow shirts are shed, will they be wearing brown shirts? And ultimately after the brown shirts, will they be wearing black uniforms?

If the Bastille falls, can the guillotine be far bahind?

Pres. Benigno Aquino, III


NO! I do not believe he should have got himself directly involved with the Bus Hostage negotiations.

There is a lot of people capable of handling this by themselves.

Besides, if he did this, then he would be expected to do this everytime somebody takes some people hostage.

And that smile of his has been misunderstood. It is a mannerism. All smiling jacks have this mannerism. That’s the reason why they are called smiling jacks.

In fact all Filipinos can be called smiling jacks. Observe the destitute people being interviewed on tv. They smile even when they recount their tragedies. They smile even when they ask for help! Smiling is congenital to Filipinos. This is why they do not need practice to master it!

If you do not smile in the face of disaster, disaster will not face you with a smile.


First Fumble……

Noynoy’s first fumble is realized by a disapproval of  the choice of Head of the Truth Commission—Davide, former Chief Justice.

The former President, Joseph Estrada, voiced out this disapproval. I am inclined to agree with Erap. Davide was head of the impeachment panel for Joseph Estrada, and from what I discern of Davide’s actions during and after the removal of Erap from the presidency, him is a lousy choice for the Truth Commission. In fact, I would advance that he be questioned regarding the construction of the lavish Supreme Court rest house in Baguio.

Pitting one Chief Justice against another might not be the smartest idea to pad Noynoy’s Moby Dick Syndrome.

Noy Aquino resounded with an out of topic apology for a couple of his newly appointed Cabinet Secretaries regarding their less than tactful retorts directed towards the members of the media. Instructions were laid down by President Noynoy Aquino that the cabinet members should undergo seminars on how to deal with the media.

In my opinion, seminars on how to deal with the media specifically is not in order. These cabinet members should undergo the basic public relations seminar.

By Gum! He turned out to be a more eloquent speaker than his Dad!

And in Tagalog, too.

But of course, his dad never made President.




Premiere Show

The premiere act of prospective President, Noynoy Aquino, is to ignore the newly installed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Renato Corona, and have himself sworn in as President by a barangay captain.

This may be a grand gesture to appease the masses, but for this official event, doing so constitutes plain theatrics, and childish at that.

For his first act as President, Noynoy Aquino confirms my idea of him as President. And that is—-he would be one who would be selective in the type of conflicts he will engage, the kind of fray he will enter, and the particular problems he will solve. He will be choosy, and that anything he would undertake would be done if there were people he could rely on to back him up. Otherwise, he would be a shirker.

He has chosen to dodge a confrontation with the Supreme Court.  Boy, does he ever need something to prop him up! sayang



The Palaspas won…

and Noynoy Aquino will run for President of the Philippines in 2010.

Electing him would have meant electing the rest of his family

which shall bear the brunt of restoring a damaged democratic structure in Philippine politics.

It remains to be seen, however, whether these palm fronds will travel down south of the Philippines, and not wither in the process. The aura of the beloved Tita Cory may not sparkle that long. face2
