• Pentecost and BS Aquino

    11

    THE foremost gift that the Holy Spirit, whose coming to the Apostles which our Holy Mother and the Mother of the Church witnessed, is the spirit of truth.

    With Holy Spirit, the power to see reality almost with the eyes of God Himself, becomes possible for mere man (meaning to say men and women.)

    Unfortunately, this power seems completely impossible for our de facto president, BS Aquino to acquire and therefore to wield. What he and his closest collaborators and allies are wielding is the power of untruthfulness–which is a gift not of the Holy Spirit but of the Father of Lies.

    Recently, in advertising his brainstorm to possibly invite Senator Grace Poe to be his ruling Liberal Party presidential standard bearer in 2016, he said that the biggest problem that was exercising his mind was “Who will be more trustworthy to carry on the legacy that I will leave behind?”

    The implication is that he does not find DILG Secretary Mar Roxas, who has been the most visible seeker of the LP nomination these past five years, to be “the most trustworthy” because otherwise there would not be a any need to worry about this problem. And he would not be publicly announcing that perhaps Grace Poe would be it.

    What he does not seem to realize — and it puzzles us why some of the less mendacious and more realistic Liberal Party leaders also seem to be as oblivious to the truth as BS Aquino himself — is that he has no legacy of good achievements to leave behind.

    It is all empty, hollow talk, when he and his spokesmen claim that his administration has a reform program that must continue after he leaves office.

    We will take up all the major areas of governance in this space in the coming days.

    Today let’s just look at his greatest claim to brilliance and excellence–our country’s economic performance.

    The other day there was news that growth in the first quarter was supposed to have hit 7.3 %.

    Is this a result of Aquino’s and his people’s actions? Of course not. The only good thing that can be attributed to him and his men and women officials (many of whom were also key figures in the Arroyo administration) is that they did not reverse the policy directions already started before he became president. But he can be berated for the development setback caused by his and Budget Boss Abad’s decision to cancel some important GMA regime infrastructure projects so they could amass “savings.”

    If our country now has investment-grade rating from Moody’s and S&Ps, it’s a progressive and cumulative result of the good policies started during the Macapagal-Arroyo regime and the consistently increasing foreign exchange remittances of our OFWs. These remittances make our pesos one of the world’s strongest and most stable currencies and makes our central bank the possessor of an enviable foreign currency hoard.

    Meanwhile, this administration is a dismal failure in reducing poverty. In attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) and in making its boasts about massive Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) come true.

    And it has proved to be incompetent and laggard in affecting the economic rescue and rehabilitation of disaster ravaged areas of the country.

    There is no economic-performance achievement that BS Aquino can honestly claim.

      >>> isa sa mga KAAWA-AWA NA POLITIKONG NAKISAMA AT NAGPAKUMBABA NOON AY SI MAR ROXAS,pero ano ginawa ng mga alyado ni Abnoy, in few weeks before the exact election day, saddenly LUMITAW ANG CAMPAIGN BANNER NA “NOYBI” (Noynoy Binay). At natalong bigla si Roxas. Para nilamukos ang reputasyon at tiwala ni Roxas na siya ang sadyang tutulungan, pero KABALIGTARAN ang ginawa sa kaniya. ISANG SAMPAL SA MUKHA ANG GINAWA NG MGA COJUANGCO-AQUINO FAMILY CLAN SA ROXAS FAMILY.

      >>> ngayon heto na naman, noon ang usapan si Roxas ang susuportahan at gagawin standard bearer ng LP at ng mga alyado at iindorso ni Abnoy. Pero kailan lang biglang sumingaw ang “G.Poe for President “sa dila at dilaw na utak ni Abnoy BSC-Aquino at ng mga LPs at alyado. NGAYON PA LAMANG LANTARAN NA GINAGAGO AT BINABALAHURA MULI S MAR ROXAS.
      KAILAN MAGIGISING SI MAR ROXAS ???? NAWALAN NA SIYA NG PAGGALANG SA KANIYANG ANGKAN AT SA SARILI ???? TULUYAN NA BA SIYA NAGPAPAGAMIT AT NAGPAPA-UTO SA NAIS NI ABNOY, NA DAPAT SI ABNOY ANG TUMANAW NG UTANG NA LOOB KAY ROXAS, PERO BALIGTAD TILA SI ROXAS ANG MAY UTANG N A LOOB KAY ABNOY. DAHIL BA SA DAP FUNDS MILYONES O BILYONES ? GANOON LANG BA ANG HALAGA NG KARANGALAN AT REPUTASYON NG PAMILYA ROXAS SA BANSANG PILIPINAS???

      A true liar indeed…..i hope one day he and his cronies will pay all of these….we must punish them all…..

    4. You sum-up all the bad traits of all the previous Presidents and that is the total trait of our Abnoy President, pinakagago at pinaka-incompetent pa. Zero ang legacy dahil ang talagang nagtratrabaho lang naman sa atin ay ang mga OFWs natin. Ang talagang nakinabang lang sa pamumuno ni Abnoy ay mga corrupt na mga cabinet members niya na sina Abad, Abaya, Alcala, Dinky at si Gazmin, mga kaalyado niya sa Kongreso at ang mga ganid na mga oligarchs na kumukontrol sa presyo ng elektrisidad, water rates at ang iba pang prime commodities. His bad legacies are the total failure in the operation of MRT/LRT/PNR, neglect of our Agriculture, land reform, local industries, no vision at all for industrialization, our infrastructures is in shambles, smuggling, drug trafficking, high crime rates and the continuing lies and deception style of our Abnoy President. May God gives the appropriate karma to our bad leaders and bless our poor people.

      Tutal nabanggit ang Pentecost, sa Book of Revelation ay may binabanggit na Anti-Christ na isang political leader. Si Noynoy ay tamang tama maging Anti-Christ dahil araw araw sa loob ng limang ay nagsisinungaling siya.

    6. Puedi ba kung hindi o kulang sa kaalam tungkol sa tunay na pinangalingan ng holy espirit,wag ng ninyong gamitin ito o kaladkarin!
      Ang dios lang ang nagpapadala ng totoong mabuting espirito!yan ang power galing sa kanya!
      Hayaan na ninyo sa mga pari ito!
      Si Aquino ay ibinato ng langit upang salutin ang mga pinoy!hehehe!!

      We have a bunch of incompetent, arrogant and thieves in the government. I have no idea but how these people manage to face in the public despite of all their blunder and failures in their governance as a public officer. Matindi ang administrasyong ito pakapalan na ng mukha ito….

    8. I do not see the need to mention the name of the Holy Spirit just to trash the morality of another person. God in the 10 Commandments plainly stated that his name must not be used in vain.
      So talking about someone else failings but right in the process exposes unwittingly one’s own, is an excellent example of what Jesus is talking about in iMatthew 7:3  Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but ddo not notice the log that is in your own eye?

      • Brother it is not a speck but a forest. Our loyalty should start and end w our beloved country. Not to any personality.
