President Benigno S. Aquino 3rd is now politically dead. We are just waiting for the burial! Unless PNoy changes his direct collision course with the Supreme Court (SC) and at the rate he is going, the Philippines may just have a new president in 100 days.
President B. S Aquino 3rd has the brazen temerity to threaten the Supreme Court about its UNANIMOUS decision on the despicable Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) on national television and radio that NO president of the Philippines has ever done before. The High Tribunal should consider citing for “Contempt” the shameless president or at least give him a REPRIMAND in its decision on the Malacanang motion for reconsideration.
President Aquino would like the 13 Justices of the Supreme Court who gave the UNANIMOUS decision released July 1, 2014 to change their minds after his threat of a clash between the Executive Branch and the Judiciary, two co-equal branches of the government. Amazing hubris by a Do-Nothing Chief Executive whose ignorance can only be matched by his arrogance when he said “Your (SC) decision is difficult to understand.”
Never again should the Filipino people elect a President like Noynoy Aquino whose only qualification is being the child of his illustrious parents.
PNoy has no respect for the Supreme Court in charge of the Judiciary and the only institution mandated to interpret the Philippine Constitution.
The good news from the national address of Aquino last Monday is it finally exposed the true character of this puerile president. It is NOW beyond reasonable doubt that PNoy is a THREAT to our society because his words and actions can cause a constitutional crisis that would put our country and people in Great PERIL, as Senator Serge Osmeña said.
Many Filipinos and foreigners who were supportive of President Aquino in the past four years have lost their confidence in him after he challenged the Supreme Court decision and THREATENED the very institution that is the final arbiter in the interpretation of laws and the Constitution of the Philippines.
PNoy showed unprecedented disrespect for the Office of the President that he holds and that is the HIGHEST in the land. I dare say that it is time, if not long overdue, that he be given an early retirement from the presidency.
In the press conference of President Aquino, atrophy has become obvious with what he said. His brain has apparently not developed because he did not make much use of it in college (hardly studied) and also afterwards (hardly worked in his life).
So this is the President we have had for the past four years whose Ignorance can only be matched by his Arrogance. PNoy must really be Supemely Stupid. He said that the DAP did not violate any law. True. What he Violated was the Philippine Constitution!
I have received text messages and emails from friends and colleagues who have lost their confidence in PNoy and has withdrawn their support after his monumental blunder with his explanation on the DAP and his threat to the Supreme Court.
A Filipina friend living Japan for the past 25 years told me that if PNoy were in Japan, Resignation or Impeachment would be the least of his worries. His Biggest problem is his legacy and how he will be remembered. Unfortunately, we have a totally different culture here and those like him belonging to the oligarchy are imbued with hubris.
I am ambivalently amused and appalled by the claims of President B.S. Aquino III that the DAP funds were spent properly and that they were NOT LOST to Corruption. I can only smile at the brazen temerity of the presidential prevarication.
A good case in point was the P8.3 Billion from DAP that went to the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) on top of their P11.5 Billion. So why did DBM not just asked Congress to approve a P20.0 Billion instead? Let us see how the P8.3 Billion was well spent in Mindanao.
If the Aquino Administration was sincere with the DAP, why did DBM not spend even 1% of the P8.3 Billion or P83.0 Million for a new Airport Terminal in Bongao, Tawi-tawi. A new airport terminal is direly needed in the capital of Tawi-tawi to develop tourism and tourism and spur economic development that DAP is supposed to do.
As expected, PNoy is again LYING on the DWPH savings and other prevarications. This guy really has a monumentally dishonest mind. He is missing the point. What he as President and DBM Secretary Florencio “ Butch” Abad did was WRONG. No question about it.
The Supreme Court has spoken and they are the one who can interpret the law and definitely NOT someone like who filed Senate Bill No. 3121 in 2008 that was to prevent the practices in DAP, which he did in 2011 to 2013.
The simple question about DAP is why President B. S. Aquino 3rd and DBM Secretary Abad HIDE the DAP from the Filipino people from 2011 to 2013 if it is really good for the Filipino people. It was only after Sen. Jinggoy Estrada exposed in September 2013 the money given to senators who voted for the conviction of SC Chief Justice Renato Corona that DBM Secretary Abad was forced to reveal DAP.
P-Noy is HOPELESS. He is INCORRIGIBLE. He must Resign or be Replaced.
