‘A vote for Corona is a vote for Binay’



MANILA, Philippines—The camp of Vice President Jejomar Binay finally lets the cat out of the bag: A vote to acquit Chief Justice Renato Corona is a vote of support for Binay in 2016.

How the senators vote in the impeachment case against the Chief Justice will impact on the political fate of Binay, who has all but declared his plans to run for president in 2016, said former Sen. Ernesto Maceda, a known Binay ally.

Corona’s conviction will bolster support for President Aquino and his “anointed candidate” for president while an acquittal would boost the stock of the opposition candidate, which could very well be Binay, he said.

“This is the Binay factor. If you’re for Binay for president for 2016, you’ll probably vote for acquittal. Why? First of all, if Corona is convicted, that strengthens Noynoy and a stronger Noynoy means stronger support for his [chosen] candidate,” Maceda told a press forum at Annabel’s Quezon City on Saturday.

“If Corona is acquitted, in the words of [Inquirer columnist Amando] Doronila, that will be the start of the downturn of Noynoy Aquino’s popularity. He becomes ‘weaker’ and his candidate becomes weaker,” he said.

Binay-Estrada coalesce

Ahead of the 2013 senatorial elections, Binay’s Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) has forged a coalition with former President Joseph Estrada’s Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) to form the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

(Maceda was the general campaign manager of Estrada’s PMP in the 2010 presidential elections, and has said he intends to seek a Senate seat in 2013 under Binay’s new coalition.)

While he ran as Estrada’s vice-presidential running mate in 2010, Binay also capitalized on his strong ties with the Aquinos—particularly the President’s late mother, former President Corazon Aquino—and their vaunted “yellow army.” A big factor in his victory was the peeling off of a large segment of this yellow vote from Mr. Aquino’s running mate, now Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas, to go over to Binay.

Last week, Binay caused a stir when he invited allies of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and critics of the Aquino administration, including Maceda and Zambales Rep. Milagros Magsaysay, to join the UNA senatorial lineup.

Confronted by Mr. Aquino’s partymates, Binay declared full support for the President, and squelched speculations that he was cozying up to Arroyo. Tellingly, however, he did not state his position on Corona, whose impeachment and ongoing trial is the linchpin of the Aquino administration’s anticorruption policy.

Maceda, who has been monitoring and writing about the trial in his newspaper column, has predicted that at least seven of Mr. Aquino’s political allies would vote for Corona’s conviction, while at least five senators would go for acquittal.

How senators might vote

He identified the seven as Senators Franklin Drilon, Francis Pangilinan, Ralph Recto and Teofisto Guingona III, all members of Mr. Aquino’s Liberal Party; and Panfilo Lacson, Sergio Osmeña III and Antonio Trillanes IV.

A possible eighth may be Sen. Edgardo Angara, who is building the Aurora economic development zone in his home province and “needs the financial support that only the President can provide,” Maceda said.

“He’ll be inclined toward conviction,” he said of Angara.

Those who might be expected to vote for acquittal are Senators Joker Arroyo, Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Ferdinand Marcos Jr., Loren Legarda and Manuel Villar Jr., if their questions, statements and vote to respect the Supreme Court temporary restraining order against the examination of Corona’s dollar accounts were to be used as a gauge, Maceda said.

This is why he believes it would be easier for the defense to muster nine votes (only eight are needed) to acquit Corona than for the prosecutors to get the 16 votes to convict.

Political affiliation matters

Tranquil Salvador III, one of Corona’s lawyers and a spokesperson for the defense panel, agreed with Maceda’s assessment that political affiliation will be a factor in the final vote.

“Although objectively the conscience will be the guide of [the senators’] decision, we have to understand that this is a political exercise. And since this is a political exercise, political affiliation and relationship would matter at the end of the day,” Salvador said.

The senators have maintained that they will vote on evidence and according to their conscience.

“In matters pertaining to my role as senator judge, I am accountable to the people and not to the President or to the party. I will vote based on the evidence and what I believe to be best for the nation,” Pangilinan said.

“Anyone is free to make his predictions. You can too,” Recto said.

The Inquirer repeatedly tried but failed to reach Angara for comment on Maceda’s statements.

    Mr. Maceda, is that the way you think??? ang mga katulad mo d kailangan sa senado! Impeachment trial  is not about for popularity it is a constitutional act of challenging the honesty and credibility of Mr. Corona. acquital or conviction will be based on the evidence being presented.Therefore,With your ambitious attempt for the Senate, Do not confused the Pilipino by redirecting it and injecting errelevant issues. Ngayon pa lang masasabi ko na d ka nararapat sa Senado.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6ODLDBBLVPVJCOODC6Y4CKJTVA lex

    Si ERNESTO MACEDA ang isang magandang halimbawa ng TRAPO. Wala ng inisip kundi maruming PULITIKA. Mag ingat sa taong ito, wala syang magagawang MABUTI sa kasalukuyang problema ng PINAS.Wag po nating AKSAYAHIN ang BOTO sa taong ito! 

  • barangayboso

    Mr. Maceda, you are dragging the names of these poor senators down..

    Remember that people want accountability…

    I think whatever the outcome of this impeachment is, The president tried at his best to give justice to what these bastards did to our country..

    Now its in the hands of the senators.. you want justice? tell it to the senators..

    “so young and so corrupt” ang label sa kanya noong nag-umpisang mamulitiko yan. ngayon, so old and so inept. kung ano-anong mga position ang hinawakan, wala namang ginawa kundi ang magpaganda ng kutis.

    Medyo ilusonado na rin itong si Maceda gaya ni Corona.  If Corona is convicted, it’s because guilty siya based on the presented evidence.  Spoken like a true political trapo itong si Maceda.

  • aristeosj

    what a shame to be hearing this from this so old and still so corrupt old man in the person of maceda.we will be back to the bad old days of you-know-who with this early positioning of binay,estradas,macedas and cohorts.

  • alazzka

    Binay is indeed digging his trenches now because in the event of Corona’s conviction  a CJ appointed by this autistic president would preside in the Presidential Electoral Tribunal where there is an electoral protest against the vice president   And if that happens, Binay’s position will be in great peril. 

    • wyl5326

      what a shallow analysis in swallowing hook, line and sinker the diatribe of Thief Justice as the rationale for his impeachment ! perhaps you might add Lusita as another reason next time to post !

      • JasminCubacub

        Are you denying that a vote for corona is vote for Binay? bahala aka..  basta opposition members will control the Senate next year..

  • Filipinoflash

    These TRAPO Maceda has no chance of winning the Senate. And his statements today will not help him. The people dont want corrupt officials in power. Corona acquittal will seal the deal for Binay’s defeat.

    • Luthmar

      If Maceda does not win and Binay does (God Forbid) you know what cabinet post he
      will ask for?  DPWH.  This is the gold mine for the very corrupt politician.  Gusto ni
      Maceda humirit pa bago pumanaw.  Poor Philippines.

  • Rex_Ranhilio

    Interesting ang analysis ni Maceda.

    But he did not take into consideration one thing (and remember, anything is possible) – that Binay will be Noynoy’s candidate in 2016. If this happens, ano kaya ang effect ng decision ng impeachment court?

    • rem_rod

       The decision on Corona impeachment is not a matter of consequence because it comes first. Pnoy would save grace if he endorses Bnay which i doubt.

  • ukoysakabo

     Total crap. analysis ng trapo which is not actually relevant nowadays.Ginagawang tanga ang pinoy! Masasabi ko lang kay Maceda, “ano ako tanga ka?”

  • sacrebleau

    When the EDSA 2 crowd was gathering at the shrine calling for Estrada’s ouster, Maceda dismissed the crowd by saying: “Just let them, nothing’s going to come out of it.” Maceda was wrong, Estrada was ousted.

    Maceda was a poor analyst and a useless gov’t official. High marks for posturing tho’.

  • Garote

    I believe Maceda and Doronila do not think first before they write. They just write whatever comes into their minds. That is the reason why their write-ups are fallacious and opinionated.

     “If you’re for Binay for president for 2016, you’ll probably vote for
    acquittal. Why? First of all, if Corona is convicted, that strengthens
    Noynoy and a stronger Noynoy means a stronger support for his
    candidate,”to quote Maceda.
    This means that Binay is for the acquittal of Corona and he should stop posturing that he supports P-noy’s program of clean govt. Thru Maceda, he is also telling senator-judges, who will run under UNA, that a conviction vote will weaken their reelection bid in 2013, so does his presidential run in 2016. Since on the surface Binay supports P-noy, he is not only on the double edge again(“head you lose tail I win”) but also insulted the intelligence of the senators. Clever!
    My prescription to fight this “dirty tricks” of Binay is we the people should strongly support the senators to vote for conviction of Corona, nothing less.

  • Garote

    I read the claim of Maceda and Doronila that “Corona acquittal to bolster Binay chances at presidency.”The more times one tries to understand the rationale of the statement, the farther it eludes away from the field of established logic. It falls in the classification categorized as “pure garbage.”

  • http://fables.boxpinoy.com/ Lucky Luciano

    For Corona, It should be an open vote, and the senators must explain their vote and the Filipinos will decide.

    As for manong Maceda, please move him to a nursing home, Golden Acres is good, Mayroon pa palang nanghihingi ng opinyon diyan.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Sound bytes from Barney — the gay Dinosaur. He knows he has no chance of getting a seat fairly so sowing intrigues is his game. Binay should know as early as now that Maceda is a rotten egg which could compromise his political future. He should have the political will to say NO to Erap in including Maceda to the lineup unless Binay himself is politically indebted to Maceda, then Binay might slowly but steadily lose his popularity with the masa by association to TRAPOS and Corrupt politicians.

  • indiosbravos2002

    I think Binay at this point should clear his position on Corona to make sure if he is really aligned with the president. Afterall, a cabinet member should be aligned with the president at all times. If he is opposition, then let it be known by day one his true colors… no pun intended.

    • AmBoy24

  • arthur1401

    I thought Maceda is intelligent. He belongs to Binay’s party and he is putting his party in a big trouble. He is giving the voters of the 2013 and 2016 elections the hint whom to vote for and whom to reject.

    If Maceda is to be believed, then Binay’s party is favoring the impunity, the cheating, the lying and the corruption will continue under the watch of binay’s party.

    Maceda forgot that just very recently, SWS and Pulse asia revealed that 75% of the people wanted corona to be convicted, but he is saying that if corona is acquitted, binay’s party will win in the election. The 75% of the people wanted change and wanted impunity to end. If this is the way maceda thinks, then it’s bye-bye to binay in 2016.

    This announcement by maceda doesn’t make sense. For how can the 75% of the people who wanted corona out of SC still vote for the supporters of corona in the senate?

    Maceda forgot that after EDSA 2, those senators (miriam, enrile, sotto, oreta, etc) who voted for non-opening of 2nd envelope were trounced in the election that followed.

    Maceda is aging  and along with his age, his mental aptitude is also deteriorating.

    Once upon a time, Mayor Lacson of Manila said-“Maceda is so young, so brilliant and so corrupt”. This is proven today. Except that he has aged and his mental aptitude has deteriorated. But he is still corrupt.

    • tiopaero

      arthur1401  kawawa ka naman hangang ngayon nanniniwala ka pa din sa Pulse  Asia at SWS. Alam na mismo ng buong pilipinas na pag-aari yan ng mga Cojuanco eh !!! ano ba naman yang argumento na yan ?  case you forgot EDSA Celebration was attended by ghosts and spirit. No one came and heed to Noynoy;s calling. So sino ang boboto sa mga kandidato ni Noynoy kung walang nakinig sa kanya sa EDSA nung February ? Sa Mindanao lalong zero yang mga LP sigurado yan.

    • BacolodBoy

      least we forget, we have the worst performing president, as noynoying became an international buzz word for lazy, its root word the name of the current president…

  • tiopaero

    There is no stopping Corona’s Acquittal. it is only a matter of time. Escudero and Cayetano joining the opposition is a big blow for the prosecution.

    Obviously, there’s no hope left for conviction anymore. It’s in the bag for Corona.

    Joker, Miriam, Enrile, Honasan, legarda, Villar, Marcos, Sotto are enough to acquit CJ Corona.

    Congratulation C J Corona for your forthcoming acquittal.

    Maceda is dead right, the best prosecution can get is 8 – 10 votes. Nothing more than 10 votes.

    These bunch of crooks are planning to screw the filipinos again even before Aquino’s term is over.  Instead of putting their time and effort to solve the problem the country is facing and will face in the future, these bunch of crooks has no shame to show their true colors.  Corruption is one of the main problem the country has faced and will sure face again if these crooks have their ways.  And yet these bunch of crooks never once mentioned what they’re going to do about it.  Maybe because they were the ones causing it.  And then there is poverty which for a long time has never been address to and let alone remedied because the funds that should have been applied to the poor families were not being used to where it was supposed to.  It usually goes to these crooks pockets………  Shame….shame….  I sure hope filipinos this time  will be more intelligent enough to use their good judgment in selecting their candidates on the next election.  It’s about time the people teach these politicians that there’s more to them if they think they can always screw the people.  There’s always a limit to what people can take……….

  • EdgarEdgar

    Voting for conviction will be voting for Mar presidency in 2016. This is the greatest fear of Mar’s former peers. Even with 100M tax free, yellow senators don’t like Mar. Drilon and Kiko, two LP stalwarts, have strong reservations about Mar’s character. Ultimately, even the yellow senators will have to acquit the chief justice on the basis of falsified data and fabricated evidence. The case has been decided on the day Noynoy’s childhood sweetheart Eulalio admitted his illicit affair with the president. The month-long break, the stations of the Cross, the Easter egg hunt, Kim’s projectile dysfunction, the China crisis, the power crisis and many more are just intermission numbers to the inevitable — the acquittal of the innocent.

      No one is presumed guilty. No one has yet been proven innocent. Let the innocent account innocence for the dollar and peso bank accounts, suppressed tightly from public scrutiny. Then, let the yellow, brown, black and white decide and account for their decision afterwards. Most politicians are basically the same: protectors of their personal and professional interests. It’s the nation that protects its own interest by guarding its institutions and its coffers from all unscrupulous, indolent, incompetent, manipulative, or thieving public servants. Stay focused. Finish the trial to revive trust in the judiciary, while making sure the flagship doesn’t sink. Protect your captain. If he sinks, we all sink. I never liked Mar anyway.

    If this will be the reason for acquitting CJ Corona, successful ata siya na gamitin ang  pananakot na pag ma convict siya, papabor ang bagong CJ kay Mar Roxas. Pero sino ba talaga ang fair and sino ang biased sa mga justices na ito. Di ba si Corona mismo ang biased? At ang totoong fair mismo ay si Justice Carpio? Koko Pimentel was not able to sit as senator if not because of the fairness of Justice Carpio as chair of SET. He made a strongly worded argument for the dismissal of the counter protest of Zubiri while all other 4 senators and 2 justices went against him. But look at Corona, even at the start, during the time when Koko Pimentel asked for the TRO on the proclamation of Zubiri, he already voted for its dismissal. Kitang kita ang kanyang biased for Zubiri dahil  pareho silang tuta ni GMA. So, sino ang totoong fair and sino ang totoong biased. Gumagamit lang ng pananakot and kampo ni Corona ng hindi naman talaga totoo, ang nakakalungkot, nagpapadala ata dito si VP Binay.

      yes HTEE, lumaki akong ang ibig sabihin nang trapo sa amin ay basahan, itong mga traditional politicians na ito ay iisa lang ang ibig sabihin basahan na dapat nang itapon dahil sobra na ang asim nang amoy sa pagnanakaw sa kaban nang bayan at laking pahirap sa buong mamayan dahil ang nasa isip lang nila ay kung paano magnakaw.

      “sabi nga nila ang magnanakaw ay nagnanakaw muna bago tumakbo, itong mga trapo at pati na ang mga kaanak nila tumatakbo muna bago magnakaw at big time pang magnakaw kaya naman talagang namumuhunan nang malaki sa kanilang kampanya”

    Clearly, ang manok po ni maceda ay si VP Binay. Maceda is a has been-dirty-politico embracing with gusto the time of the marcos regime to the estrada jueteng-gate corrupt culture government. Ngayon, didilaan na naman nya ang likod ng Binay forces to ressurect his fortunes again. And what’s the magnet that draws Maceda to VP Binay? Eto ang napag-alam ko on some of VP Binay’s rise in politics. I used to be a resident of makati for 16 yrs. during the three terms that VP Binay ruled over makati and I lived along Hormiga st. katabi lang po ang munisipyo ng makati. Binay has a very shady, dictatorial and goon like rule in makati that time. One incident was during the local election for mayor where Binay was the re-electionist pitted against one time senator Eddie Ilarde. That time Ilarde was already perceived to be the next likely mayor of makati because of the majority support he was getting and his likeable demeanor amongst the people even with Binay’s vaunted guns, goons and gold. Sensing his defeat in the mayoralty race, hindi po talaga pa-lalampasin ni Binay na matalo sa isang Ilarde lang at by hook or by crook, he hatched his plan as narrated by some knowledgeable people in and around the munisipyo I have had conversations with and some barangay people along our area. Ang ginawa ni Binay, he let loose his goons and bomb the Ilarde residence and strafed it with submachine guns. Fortunately wala pong nasaktan. A few days later Binays residence was shot up and strafed with sub-machine, too. Appearing in television, Binay says “they” are trying to destroy him and kill his family. On the other side, Ilarde was clearly shell shocked out of his wits, natakot ang pulitiko at and said its not worth it going thru this. Eventually the guns, goons, and gold of Binay won him his third term and the rest is history. And to the present we go, and this is the scenario-Corana is acquitted, the Binay coalition and allies win the majority in the senate, they cripple Pnoy and best of all for the Binay forces, lo and behold, they cook up the for the pardon of GMA and she goes scot free. At ano ang susunod? Ang mga buwaya, the hyenas, the pack of wolves in sheeps clothing and the other dark forces hidden under their coalition will now start to rear their multi-headed snake heads and cast a dark shadow on the land from Apparri to Jolo! And one last thing, if you happen to be in Makati one of these days, notice the letter “B” inside a circle plastered in almost all nook and cranny of makati, mga sari-sari store, mga kariton, street names, barangay halls, at mga pader ng munisipyo. That’s the symbol of the Binay dynasty that I remember he once said, “ito symbolo ng ikaka-satuparan ko para sa buong pilipinas!” SASAKLUBAN NA NGA PO TAYO NG MAITIM NA ULAP……

    • blunderact

      He will not be part of the senate line up of binay because he is a liability. Sipsip kay binay para maapoint ulit sa government after binay wins. But with this statement, binay will tell him to shut up because this will not help binay.

  • KapitanBagwis

      Sewer politics at it’s best.  All the filthy and smelly dirt you will find in a sewer, you can easily find them in the Philippines politics……..never in my whole life that I followed politics that I have seen dirty politics as dirty in the Philippines.  And you “kilabot” is a good example of why these crooks are thriving in the Philippines.   You and your dirty minded politics.  No wonder the country is in predicament it is now.   Corruptions will continue until the country goes bankrupt…….what a shame….

    Should dishonest, bully, and dishonorable corona be acquitted by the 
    Binay-Estrada-Enrile-Arroyo coalition in the senate, there’s a very big possibility 
    that their senatorial candidates will be wiped-out no matter how well-known their

    Maceda, “so young, and yet so corrupt”, will never win in the senatorial election. His only slim chance of winning is the acquittal of dishonest corona, because the people will be angry with the  senators who will vote for the acquittal.

  • Rathbumo

    The X factor in the fate of CJ Corona in the impeachment trial will be the INC. The re-electionist Senator-judges will need the support of the INC for their political ambition. 4.0 million votes din yan. Maniniguro ang mga yan. Mga TRAPO e. Galit-galit muna sila ni Pnoy .

  • blunderact

    Maceda does  not care what will happen to our country. What is important for him is winning the ellection. Now you know how maceda thinks and the kind of person that he is. His means to win an election does not have a moral convtion. Maceda will admit in public that he will sleep with the devil if that will win him an ellection. He lacks the integrity to sit in the senate. “SO YOUNG. SO CORRUPT”

    if people will vote for binay and eraps endorsed senators that will be the end of free corrupt philippines and the end of free corrupt judiciary…filipinos never learn of all the tragedy and impact of their everyday life while all of this corrupt supreme court and politicians like binay and estrada, gloria, corona, mirriam, legarda, marcos, joker arroyo revilla is still at large…  poor philippines all is under the spell of iglesia ni manalo’s cult and corrupt bishps of catholics that’s why those politicians are so evil also..

  • watot

    Whose laughing now? Miguel?mikey?GMA?…no wonder the usual greedy smiles of GMA is back…don’t you notice? It might not be Binay but the senators in his line up that will make the stir in the future. We could still vote Binay but be careful of his senator line ups.

    Ten are actually a sure vote for conviction, Senators Angara for sure, Pia and Peter.  But the highest vote for conviction is perhaps only 11. Most probably Corona will be acquitted. Now if we are to ride on the issue of a vote for Corona is a vote for Binay, the more it will strengthen Corona’s acquittal, considering Binay’s popularity which remains high. The possible entry of Kris Aquino will be the start of the downfall of Pnoy together with his line up. 

  • GreenStallion

    Mr. Maceda is just speculating, that’s his presumptions, his intelligent analysis. Let’s take it as it may. I respect his opinion. But he could not predict what the Filipino people will think or do next year’s 2013 election. Its not constant. The voters of yesteryears are different now. They are well informed, educated and intelligent as well. Just in case the predictions of Manong Ernie will come true, does it mean that the overwhelming support of the Filipino people to PNOY will eventually lost? NOT exactly, because the people knows that the decision of the impeachment trial solely now under the hands of the Senator Judges and it involves political process where political affiliation has bearings. The maturity of Filipino votes will now come in this 2013 elections, whether they truly learned from the shadow of GMA or not.  If CJ be acquitted, the people knows that this gov’t did everything in all sincerety its best to curb corruptions, midnight appointment, shady deals, etc.

    As for me, I will place my trust to this government who have tried to set a good example of how should good governance be taken. Let’s not go back to the old dirty politics, old style and patronage where only few politicians, gov’t leaders who enrich themselves again at the expense of Filipinos taxes. Lets completely shun those evil plans of this personalities whose real interest is to amassed wealth not to faithfully help our gov’t back to its glory. Lets strive to walk straight, never to turn our back again of the dark age of our country. Beware of those trapos appearing to be a LAMB but they are indeed a WOLF. This 2013 election, let’s prove to the whole world that we have change for the better. Let’s be united rather than divided, because the forces of evil are strong.

  • kilabot

    a vote for corona is:
     1) a vote for the rule of law;
     2) a slap in the face to noynoy capone and his prostitutes;
     3) a vote against bullying, lying, porking, noynoying, abnoying, kkk’ng and everything pnoy epitomizes;
     4) a vote for the farmers of hacienda luisita and coconut farmers;
     5) a vote against wasteful unnecessary expenditures;
     6) a vote against mindanao power crisis, fuel crisis, tuition crisis, crime crisis;
     7) a vote for check & balances in govt;
     8) a rejection of absolute control in all branches of govt;
     9) the morally correct vote.

    I liked Jojo Binay…. however, if he really supports the thief Corona, i will no longer support him.
    I hope he comes out with a clear statement because i cannot support a presidential candidate who is weak in fightiing corruption.  It is a SHAME if he really supports Corona and those thieves in the former administration.  BINAY, ilabas mo na baraha mo para malaman ng mga tao……kung sa panig ka ng mamamayan o sa panig mga mga manghuhuthot at magnanakaw!!!!!!!

  • JasminCubacub

    Why do you want to reach Angara for comment? he has no self-respect or decency.. In 1996 he said [when asked if he could be the running mate of ERAP] that he “preferred to be on the sides of the brains”  but he shamelessly ran with ERAP in 1998.  Now, if you ask him whom is going to choose between Noy and [B]Nay, he will say Noy  just to claim his PDF. But later he will join BINAY!

  • JasminCubacub

    “A vote for Corona is a vote for Binay”.  It is so pleasing to read and hear! kame ang controllers ng susunod ng election!  What can we say about the possible votes that will be cast against Corona.. 2 or 3 only!!

    But if I were among those IC Judges who are against Corona, I would rather prefer to abstain from voting than to be part of the losing minority! 

  • RomyLitz

    Maceda is correct! The problem is that many Filipinos will vote for Pnoy’s program of anti-corruption  and that means the senators had to vote for conviction. Condolence to the Corona supporters and sycophants!

  • RomyLitz

    When the bar topnothcer  Gibo ran for president, he lost because he got the kiss of death from the Little Lady of VMMC, now , it seems the kisser of death is Corona. I dont think Binay does not heed Santayana’s “those who does not know history are sure to repeat it”. Condolence again to Corona’s supporters!

    Binay camp denied Maceda’s allegations and tagged it as maceda’s personal opinion. It seems as early as now, there are already several rifts on this “unity” slate. This is what happens when people who compose the organization are not aligned with each other and follow their own personal agenda. No wonder this party might not even reach 2013 before it self destructs.

We already have some names:  Meriam, Honasan, Arroyo, Jingoy, Villar, Loren, possibly Escudero.  More names will be added after the trial.  In case people power will take place, a good number of us will go home to Pinas to express our support for President Aquino.

        Good, this will be our potent and proven massive display of support for anti corruption and anti trapos solidarity. If sixteen senators will not be obtained we have to go to the streets again and physically take over the senate. The congress is already with us, the 188 heroes.

    Most senators will claim that their conscience will guide their votes.  However, they will vote on what they think will benefit them politically.  Most of them do not have any conscience.  We just should educate the people into realizing that a clean govt is their only hope for the govt to help them overcome poverty; not the corrupt candidates who will promise them anything to get their votes but who will just enrich themselves using their position and power.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CLAVQNJZWFOPV654ZF6OPYMCAI Manny

    This is stupid analysis. who cares? Filipino people is not stupid Maceda! The people will vote according to the performance of a candidate not the conviction or acquittal of Corona. Assuming Binay, people will vote for him if they seen him working hard and what platform of government he wants to offer to the people if he will become the President of the Philippines? Or will he change his slogan from Makati…Mahalin Natin..Atin ito… to Pilipinas..Mahalin Natin Atin ito.. and work as a chief executive as what he did in Makati when he was local executive? Who knows? We cannot tell that he will become GMA, Erap or Noynoying. They have different style of running the country as top executive. At the end of the day It will be based on his performance. If Binay wins on 2016 election as new President. The majority of the Filipino people likes Mr Binay to be their president as they seen him performed as Mayor of Makati before and the concurrent HUDCC and 
    Presidential Adviser for OFW Concerns.

    If the Impeachment Court acquits the accused despite the obvious evidence of corruption, lies and dishonesty of Mr. Renato Corona, then those who voted for his acquittal are against decency and welfare of the Filipino people. Just like the effect of the flagrant and rampant corruption during the Martial Law years and under the previous administration of Mrs. Gloria Arroyo, more Filipinos will aspire & pursue to work in the government to steal the wealth of the people & be filthy rich as quickly as possible. All Filipino children will believe that being corrupt and dishonest while working in the government are acceptable and honorable. We already know that in the Philippines, parents who are corrupt and enriching themselves while in government service are copied or imitated by their children and grandchildren. Just look around you and you will know who they are. I do not know about the Filipino voters. Do they have any selection of the candidates that they can see as honest & incorrupt politicians? I regret to say that Filipino people are really, really in big trouble. If they go for Mr. Binay, he is also showing greed by fielding all his children including his wife to be Senators or Congressman/woman or Mayor of Makati City. As for Mr. Roxas, if he decides to run as President, his wife Ms. Korina Sanchez seems not interested in working for the government. She is, in my view, one of the most honorable Filipinos in the Philippines. She has too much delicadeza to run for office while her husband is in the government. Needless to say, if Mr. Renato Corona is acquitted, all decent & honorable Filipino people will have too much predicament in their hands.

    There is just too much evidence versus any acquittal of Renato
    Corona. Maceda belongs to the evil camp, and has always been
    in the evil camp, and so that explains his evil stand.

    If a certain group of senator judges vote for acquittal, that will
    only go to show that they are politically motivated, and will
    have to answer to the people. In all likelihood, making these
    senators who will vote to acquit Corona pay for their political motivation
    will not even have to wait for the 2013 senatorial election.

    These senators will have to pay the price for betraying the people
    right away. The people know the truth and if these acquitting-minded
    senators defy the truth, they will be in trouble.

    It my opinion, CJC should be judged by the merits of the evidence presented.

    Not ‘Guilty’ because Sen. Trillanes, et al insists that it is a political excercise, and that a guilty verdict is what the people ‘need.’

    Not ‘Acquitted’ because former Senator Maceda, et al believes it would be the senators strategic move to form stronger political ties that would assure the transfer of power when time comes.

    • RomyLitz

      I agree with judging on the merits of the case provided, one, no suppression of evidences as Cuevas et al wished to do, two, open dollar accounts, three, let the Basa family take the witness stand, four, Corona to take the witness stand and fiver SC employees and justices be allowed to take the witness stand. If you are ok with these five conditions, then I am OK on judging the IC hearing on the merits of the case.

    Sana hindi muna politika ang dapat pag-usapan at this time. Ang daming problema ngayon ang ating bansa. Iyon dapat ang pag-usapan ng mga leaders natin para mabigyan ng solusyon. Masyadong pang malayo ang susunod na eleksyon, pero si Vice President Binay ay pumopurma na.

    Sana magtrabaho muna para pagdating ng eleskyon, yung mga mabuting nagawa nila ang kanilang magiging effective campaign slogan. Kasi ang pipiliin ng taong bayan ay iyong may mga nagawa, hindi yung puro lang salita.
