BARASOAIN CHURCH President Aquino lays a wreath at the base of the statue of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo after leading a flag-raising ceremony in front of the historic Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan province, on Tuesday. LYN RILLON

MALOLOS, Bulacan—In an Independence Day speech, President Benigno Aquino said  the removal of Chief Justice Renato Corona brightened the essence of democracy in the country.

Mr. Aquino led the flag-raising and wreath-laying ceremonies on Tuesday at Barasoain Church here, where the first Philippine Constitution was drafted and where the First Republic was proclaimed during the struggle against 333 years of Spanish colonial rule.

“The Constitution that should be the refuge of the common person has become the plaything of those who act like kings. They move as if they hold the blindfold of justice, as if they are licensed to change, subtract and turn over the Constitution,” he said.

“Our country witnessed the trial of Mr. Corona, our former Chief Justice. This process took five months. Nonetheless, it brightened the essence of our democracy,” Mr. Aquino said.

“It is the right of Filipinos to know the truth and feel that the democratic system is alive in the country. It also impressed upon our public servants that the power entrusted to them by Juan dela Cruz carries with it responsibilities and obligations.”

The President said apathy and inaction were the reasons, aside from greed for power, why corruption spread.

“The lighthouse of democracy has dimmed because nobody took care of brightness,” he said. “Now that the country has gained momentum in the straight path, we won’t allow that we’d again lose our way in the darkness of the past.”

The President adverted to the constitutional provision that all power and authority emanates from the people.

“It’s only just that they be the ones who’d benefit from our efforts. That’s why every reform that we are pushing for—from jobs that we generate for our countrymen to justice for all, from repairing our social systems to prudent spending of our funds—should reflect the principles embodied inside this very church in 1898,” he said.

Peace and cooperation

Speaking later before the diplomatic corps at the traditional Palace reception marking the 114th anniversary of the country’s proclamation of independence, Mr. Aquino renewed his commitment to peace and cooperation, saying “prosperity cannot come in isolation.”

Chinese Ambassador Ma Kequing attended the reception amid a continuing standoff over disputed islands in potentially mineral-rich West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).

Government and merchant ships in Manila Bay sounded their fog horns for two minutes as the Philippine flag was raised in ceremonies organized by the Philippine Coast Guard at nearby Rizal Park at 8 a.m.

Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas II led the Independence Day rites in Kawit, Cavite, where the Philippine flag was first unfurled 114 years ago.

Roxas reminded Filipinos of the danger that lurked as the selfish interests of a few threatened to derail the administration’s anticorruption policy.

Halfway through his speech, eight protesters began shouting from behind the crowd, decrying the government’s reclamation project on Manila Bay and the increasing prices of basic commodities.

Police and park security men unfurled a tarpaulin to keep them out of sight.

The challenge

In an Independence Day statement, Vice President Jejomar Binay said the country “will not be totally free and independent if many Filipinos still live in poverty.”

“Like President Aquino, I am aware of this challenge. That is why, I am appealing to all sectors of society, including those belonging to various regional, political or religious affiliations, to unite under a common cause, which is giving every Filipino a good life,” Binay said.

In Angeles City, Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr. said the struggle for Philippine independence was not yet over because many Filipinos remained immersed in poverty.

“Freedom is the beginning, not the end, of actions lifting our nation,” said Jimenez, who placed a wreath at the gate of the Pamintuan mansion where President Emilio Aguinaldo, on June 12, 1899, led troops celebrating the first anniversary of freedom from Spanish rule.

Jimenez said good governance was contributing to the full attainment of freedom manifested in quality life for Filipinos.

In the City of San Fernando, Mayor Oscar Rodriguez said, “It is everybody’s responsibility to the nation to tread the straight path.”

At North Luzon Expressway, tellers wore Filipiniana attire and barong Tagalog while traffic personnel wore salakot (native head gear).

Parade in Malaysia

In Malaysia, some 1,200 Filipinos celebrated Independence Day with a parade on the main streets of Kuala Lumpur on June 10, Ambassador Eduardo Malaya reported.

The parade, the first to be held there, came after 20 Filipino organizations formed the Federation of Filipino Associations in Malaysia, Malaya said.

Filipinos showed local culture through floats. A musical concert and food feast at the Philippine embassy grounds capped the event.

In Isabela province, Independence Day programs and wreath-laying events were held in Ilagan and Roxas towns and the cities of Santiago and Cauayan.

    Corona’s ouster proof vindictiveness alive in PH

    • tarikan

      Oo nga naman, hwag nang usigin yung mga nagnakaw sa gobyerno kasi vindictiveness yun. Life must go on, forget the past wrongs, excesses, anomalies, mind boggling corruption because it is vindictiveness. Sabi nga ni Kuya Kim, ang buhay ay weather weather lang. Hala sige Pilipinas gapang, sige gapang. Ang mga mamamayan mo ay mababaw ang moralidad. 

      • D_BystandeR

        I think not a good number of them possessed such kind of distorted view of interpreting as vindictiveness the positive result of convicting Corona. It is safe to assume that only those who happen to become recipients of the “kindness” of Corona by way of how a perverted interpretation of law has “improved” their lives. And they belong to what we call the “discredited few” who shamelessly would like to foist their “polluted mind” in front of us. Ang “kapal muks” talaga!

      • ricelander

        You have such a tiny brain to infer that someone must have been a recipient of Corona’s kindness to hold in disfavor Corona’s conviction. Contrary opinions can be honest opinions. Calling them polluted minds and kapalmuks reveals something sinister and dark about you.

  • boymanok

    akala ko ba na-impeach na si corona? wala na bang ibang topic itong si Pnoy?

    • D_BystandeR

      Isa ka pang walang modo. Ang mga taong katulad nyo na baligtad ang kahulugan sa mga mabuting nagawa ni P-Noy sana ay huwag na kayo sasali pa dito. Nakakahiya ang ginawa nyo. Sana “RIP” na kayo para hindi na kayo makadisturbo pa.

      • boymanok

         oh easy ka lang, baka atakihin ka sa puso…ang payo ko sayo lubos-lubusin mo na ang pagiging panatiko, magpalagay ka ng tattoo sa noo na “noynoying” para masaya…LOL

  • mekeni62

    it’s over and done.time to sing a new song….move on punk.

  • driftw00d

    Where is Corona now? he is out there booking speaking engagements to universities. Try him in court if he has any criminal liabilities. His ouster alone proves nothing but your personal desire to remove anybody who doesn’t favor you.

  • casaysay

    Tama si Pnoy na hindi na ginagamit ang Saligang Batas para manlamang sa kapwa at magpakasasa sa kapangyarihan dahil iyon ang ginawa niya sa pag demonized at pagpatalsik sa kay Corona. Kailangan lang ay ang pag control niya sa Kongreso at later on sa Hudikatura.

    Democracy alive?

    Continue dreaming!

    • JustWords811

      try expressing your views in those countries who take great pride in calling themselves, “People’s Democratic Republic”s.

      • Kayang

         I call those countries directly what they are “dictatorships”. But how can we talk about democracy “alive” if many people sell their votes to the highest bidder… or as long as we allow human rights violation… or as long we tolerate violations of our constitution like for example “political dynasties”… or as long we ignore court decisions like with the graduating students and their facebook drama….

        the best term i could agree too is, that we are still learning how to practice democracy, but it’s a long way to go….

  • UrHONOR

    >>>Corona’s ouster proof democracy alive in PH<<<

    NAGPAPATUNAY lamang na ang mga MAGNANAKAW sa kaban ng bayan ay laganap sa buong pamahalaan na pati ang SUPREME COURT, ang kataas-taasang korte na syang huling hantungan ng lahat ng kaso ay hindi pinatawad.

    Dapat pag-uusapan ito sa bawat sandali, araw-araw, gabi-gabi hangga't hindi natitiklo ang lahat ng mga KAWATAN at MAGNANAKAW sa bayan…parang pagpapa-eradicate ng mga daga o masamang sakit, na di dapat tantanan hangga't malunasan ang suliranin.  Kapag ito ay nawaglit sa isipan ng taong bayan, na siyang gustong mangyari ng mga TNL na galamay na pulutong ng kabababa-babaang pangdaque, malilimutan na naman ang lahat tulad ng nangyari sa mga Marcos. Mag-ingat sa mga yan na madalas ay aali-aligid na parang mga ahas sa gubat.

    Madaling malaman sila….kapag may sumisigaw na ng BOBO, TANGA, atmpb na yon lang naman ang kaya nilang saibihin, tiyak yon!  YON na sila.  Avoid them like you'd avoid a bakukang.

    Come on PNoy! You know Corona was removed for just non-declaration of assets. He wasnt even convicted criminally. Full transparency is now the challenge hurled against you and your government. If you cant live up to it, you have no right to say democracy is alive. You cant even live up to your campaign promise of opening your bank accounts to full scrutiny! SIGN OR RESIGN!

  • robrano

    A proof of democracy would be if Noy would be ousted and moved to where he belongs: A mental clinic. There is really nothing in his little brain than Corona, GMA and vengeance.
    Maybe it is a result of the bullet which is said to remain at his neck. Bullets contain copper and lead, both poisonous to the brain. But still, the country needs a “normal” president, no matter what is the reason, the bullet or a psychiatric, psychopathic problem.
    Needs one who accepts that he himself is a main reason of people’s most problems, due to his incompetence and not any Chief Justice with his one vote. The SC is not under that “one man rule” as what Noy wants to put over the Philippines in his personal favor.
    At least, his reactions show that the mental suspicions during his campaign have a serious basis. Let Noy go around the world and find dumbies who want to dine with him for 75000 dollar, but hold him away from any kind of governing. There are people needed who have more in brain than “Corona, Corona, GMA, GMA”.

    Does this topic not make you puke…?

  • quirinomayer

    I was for the conviction of Corona and likewise I am for his prosecution for the crimes he has committed now that he has been evicted. The President could leave that to the BIR, the Ombudsman, etc. and attend to other things specially going after other wrongdoers in government.

    Mr. President, for sure your approval ratings would jump if you kicked out the KKK from the government instead of coddling them.

    Democracy means more than the impeachment of Corona. Please move on, Mr. President.

    A democratic country where its people are given freedom to express themselves.

    If you guys want another People Power to oust your president, with today’s economic background, you’ll be responsible for your own country’s deterioration

    What happened after People Power I? All investors cancelled all of their transactions and viewed other Asian countries’ as viable investment hot spots. Ms. Corazon had to borrow money to US to rebuild the deteriorated country and up to day it has yet to be paid.

    What happened after People Power II? The Philippines was dubbed as the sick man of Asia due to it’s rampant corruption, division of the people and low economic rating.

    What will happen after People Power III? Myanmar will beat the Philippines in a short notice.

    Well good luck on that.

    If I were you guys, I’d rather contribute for my nation’s building instead of constant whining~

    • palaigit

      good thing you are not like us and we are not like you, or else we would have this negativistic and defeatist mindset which is contradictory to the filipino culture. we work hard than any other country, and we do not complain. we always have a positive outlook with things and despite the modern and hard times, we STILL HAVE OUR MORALS, ETHICS, UNIQUE CULTURE, we PRIORITIZE OUR FAMILIES, we RESPECT OUR ELDERS and we FEAR AND LOVE GOD ABOVE ALL… those are the few of what will make us prosper from our neighbors.you on the other hand is devoid of that, which is why you can never understand the filipino culture. 

      • http://twitter.com/Keem_Ah 김앟

        Ummmm… What I’m trying to point out is that if the Filipinos won’t have a unified voice they will never know true democracy.

        I never said that you guys are negative, in fact I love Filipinos for their hospitality and friendliness.

        Please reread my statement and see what I really meant.

        I never objected your credibility~ :D

        As their is no purpose for the surge of blood, you misinterpreted it~

      • palaigit

        my bad for my misinterpretations.. you are correct, but my own twisted view about it is that, i dont think that filipinos are ready for true and liberal democracy. our attitude and culture does not fit it. corruption is ingrained in the mid aged workers, most pinoys are too emotional and not pragmatic. i think we need a bit of limits with democracy, much like singapore, but nonetheless the voice of the people still needs to be prioritized. 
        once again, my bad.

      • http://twitter.com/Keem_Ah 김앟

        I understand, for one, I could see nationalism in you and its a good thing.

        Maybe a control over temper would prevent you from misinterpreting again. 

        But seriously, it’s nothing~ :D

        I like the Filipino heritage, especially your culture of delicadeza.

        It’s one of a kind, you won’t see delicadeza in other countries beside the Philippines and Spain.

        God bless us all~

      • palaigit

    Ano na nangyari parang wala nang kasunod, madaming big fish sa custom, BIR at iba pang govt agency, bakit wala pa iniimbistigahan o napapatanggal. Kailan lang yung frend kong Australian na biktima ng curuption sa custom nagbayad ng 6000 USD para lang mailabas kargamento kasi dinedelay nila. Ang tagal nang problema ito pero upto now hindi pa din inaayos, napakadali lang naman magtalaga ng spy at “dummy investor” para mahuli mga salarin at kotongero.  Isa sa reklamo ng mga investor satin yung red tape at lagay system yan ang dapat pagtuunan ng pansin ng Pnoy.

    Baka naman ang pagpapatangal kay Corona ay self-serving lang para kay Pnoy at hindi para sa mga pilipino.

  • Rae_E

    Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Sad to point out though that PNoy’s singling out of Corona diminished the significance of his message since it gave ammunitions to the certified crabs to dismiss the historic impeachment as a mere exercise of “vindictiveness”. It was certainly bigger than that for it was not PNoy who solely ousted Corona but the discerning majority through their representatives. PNoy should have mainly thanked the nation for their vigilance that led to the success of the impeachment process signaling that our democracy is finally maturing. Corona’s impeachment was great victory but it was also very divisive & is being used by the crooks/ crabs to undermine the administration & ultimately the nation. Please exercise prudence PNoy & quit fixating on the disgraced Coronarroyo otherwise your ratings will keep on dipping.

  • joshmale2004

    Pakiusap lang po sa mga members ng JBC. Kung maari lang, huwag na kayong mag nominate ng candidate na identified na at nasa kasalukuyang cabinet ni Pangulong Noynoy. Huwag ding mag nominate ng mga nakakuha na ng government position appointed by the President. Marami po tayong mga kababayan na nasa private practice na matatalino at may kakayahang gawin ang trabaho ni dating CJ corona. Kahit na qualified ang mga tao ni Pnoy sa position, for the sake of delicadeza at para magkaisa na lahat ng pro at anti sa pulitika, eh iwasan din nating lagyan ng kulay pulitika ang pag appoint sa bagong CJ. Huwag po kayong mag apura. Suyurin lahat ng sulok ng Pilipinas para hanapin ang tamang tao na hahawak ng SC ng walang bahid pulitika. Ang isang pagkakamali ay hindi naitatama sa paggawa ng isa pang pagkakamali.

      Corona is not forcibly removed. He was removed through impeachment which is a democratic process provided for in the consitution. He was found guilty of the majority of the senator judges which represents the people. What could be more democratic than that?

      • totoybelen

        Corona was more than forcibly removed by manipulating the congress and the Pilipino people.

    • joshmale2004

      We should all support the President as he is a duly elected President. And because of this trust we put on him, let us also be the guiding light to him so he will not astray and follow the old politics which all our past Presidents followed to the detriment of our country’s development. We must support his good intentions and also we must wake him up when he is leaning to bad ways.

      • http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/ Lucky Luciano

        Correct.

        All these bashing against Pnoy, LOL. Everytime we bash Pnoy, We’re not bashing Benigno Aquino, we’re bashing the president, Pnoy is just a symbol, siya yung symbol na tinitignan ng international community. Bashing your own President is like Attending a Prom and telling everyone “Ang Pangit ng Damit ko oh, Hindi kasi ako pumili nito, tignan nyo, mukhang abnormal”.

        …..or you can go home and change then pag balik mo patapos na yung event.

      • totoybelen

        What good intension of Pnoy. His manipulation of the Congress and the Pilipino people to oust his percieved enemies? Is this what we called democracy? If this is the case then Saddam Hussien ad Hitler were right when they manipulated their parliament to silence the enemies.

    Alex Lacson’s “12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country,”
    1.       Follow traffic rules. Follow the law.
    2.       Whenever you buy or pay for anything, always ask for an official receipt.
    3.       Don’t buy smuggled goods. Buy local. Buy Filipino. (Or, if you read the book, he suggests: 50-50).
    4.       When you talk to others, especially foreigners speak positively about us and our country.
    5.       Respect your traffic officer, policeman and soldier.
    6.       Do not litter. Dispose your garbage properly. Segregate. Recycle. Conserve.
    7.       Support your church.
    8.       During elections, do your solemn duty.
    9.       Pay your employees well.
    10.    Pay your taxes.
    11.    Adopt a scholar or a poor child.
    12.    Be a good parent. Teach your kids to follow the law and love our country.
    Mabuhay & God bless the Philippines!

    For Pnoy it is a proof of democracy when congressmen sign complaints without reading them, filing a case with no sufficient proof or evidence, using mr annonymous to produce bank records, using little ladies to produce bank accounts, using a judge(senator) to call in withnesses where judges are suppose to only hear on facts, using the amlac and ombudsman to intrude into bank records of adversaries. for Pnoy it is democracy when the administration can twist others rights in pursuit of other government programs

    Democracy only works when citizens know the limitations and the implied responsibilities of democracy, coupled that with having a strong, decisive leader.  Sadly, our beloved country failed in these two criterias…

    • williev

      My candidate did not win during the last presidential election & if only thoughts could kill… the winner has long been a dead man! Hmmmm..so there is no democracy in our country? and that means the rule of the majority in a free election is useless and dumb if the candidates are weak and indecisive and the voters are irresponsible to vote for them?…do i hear boycott from your side then? just curious, what kind of system are we having now if you dont mind? would love to hear your opinion on the matter. Thanks bro.

      • linsanity17

        surely we are having democracy, but a FAILED ONE…. bec people don’t know how to handle it, people are abusing it for their own benefits only and not for the benefits of somebody else’s…that’s why in order for it to work, they have to understand that there are limitations and responsibilites attached into it…additionally, for it to work we also need to have a strong, decisive leader, bec. people cannot govern their selves alone, they simply don’t know how….people can only vote and exercise their wish during election to choose their good leader, that is democracy…the system we are implementing now seems to be the same, however, we definitely fell short of both the qualifications for a WORKING DEMOCRACY….

      • williev

        thanks bro nice piece of thoughts. if you said that in order for democracy to work, they have to understand that there are limitations and responsibilites attached into it – then you require surely thinking voters? like the US perhaps? if thinking voters are requirement then – then we never had a WORKING DEMOCRACY ever since the revolutionary period and WILL NEVER have until the Filipinos are educated. From the time of Aguinaldo (could be ) up to Pnoy we never allocated the western world benchmark of at least 6% of the GNP for Education as budget in order to raise the educational level of the common Filipino. So the next question is – if we never had a working democracy based on how the Filipinos voted in the past with uneducated masses (majority), how this government is different from the previous government then that we have to emphasize its failure as a working democracy if all the predecessors failed miserably as well?…well my thoughts… thanks again..

  • agila888

    all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for a few good men to do nothing.  this saying was true during the time of gloria arroyo and the time of corona in the supreme court.  but this saying is also true during time of the 2010 election and spills over up to today.  because of a few good men who did something for the campaign of PNOY, evil did not triumph (Gloria’s manok in the election) during the 2010 elections.  Because a few good men led by PNoy did something to make people realize evil, the few good men multiplied to 80% of the population and so since the good men is already the majority, evil will never triumph anymore during the entire administration of PNoy…proof of this is the jailing of Gloria arroyo even if the jail is a hospital and the impeachment of Corona…this is a stellar example of how a few good men during the time of Gloria arroyo’s administration do something so that evil will not triumph!!!!

    Indeed Corona and his cohorts in the SC deliberately misinterpreted the provision of the constitution banning appointment during the election period. Corona and his cohorts thought that they could get away with their move since SC decision is final and it couldn’t be reversed. Their move was a brazen abuse of discretion to further the interest of their colleague and patroness. Because of his acceptance of midnight appointment, I thought all along that Corona was not worthy of being the highest magistrate of the land. Chief justice being a position of trust, and that people should have no doubt of his integrity and moral character at the very beginning. His midnight appointment was maybe the reason why he had very low trust rating in the polls that were conducted despite his taking credit of the SC decision on Hacienda Luisita. I think that the people are not necessarily taking side on the president. They just want to be in the side of right and just. What happened to Corona should serve a lesson to the justices of the SC to be impartial and to serve justice without fair and favor always.

    “Democracy is so alive”, according to the President after the ouster of the thief justice, in his June 12 message; but please Mr. President if you have a sincere intention of restoring the peoples trust in your administration and in order to deny your critics on your allege political agenda, please avoid nominating or appointing a cj that is identified in your administration. Better to have one that is more known for his/her independence and non partisanship, but with an unquestionable probity.

      And how do you understand the word “Democracy”? Have you been to school. Democracy is a Greek word which means “demo”the people and “cracy”the rule.  In the Corona Trial the people rule (not the President) through the people’s representing them (the Senators). We do not live anymore in the laws of the jungle like monkeys hanging on trees. We have a civilised society.  SO SHUT UP!

        sir, unfortunately the senators are voted by the people but these senators dont have “paninindigan” as they can be influenced by others for their decision making. Anyone from lower and upper house that says they are representing the people is a farce joke for me since they dont even listen to our demands and our needs and just doing grandstanding, one good example is a senator (name withheld) nagwawala at nag tataray sa senado, do you really think that senator represent the people? or even the fat senator who was really obvious taking sides from the very begining. Only a blind person will say the President have no influence in removing fat guy corona

    Tama si Presidente P-Noy sa kanyang plano na ang celebration ay i-ikot sa visayas at mindanao na mayroon kahulugan ang labanan. It seemed to me that the celebration is centered only in the Tagalog regions (Central Luzon)…. even the Spanish authorities of that time called the event a “Tagalog Uprising”.  The province of Iloilo DID NOT JOINED the uprising  and by that Queen Regent Maria Christina awarded the city for their loyalty to the Spanish Administration. GOOD IDEA PINOY. malalim na Pana-galog…. but the message touch the heart of ordinary masa… the constitution should protect all not only those who knows it by heart and play with i. alluding to thIEF!

The impeachment court did not cite any legal basis on its decision except that of Santiago and Jokers. Other merely cited political issued that would not hold through in regular court with Corona’s deposits after signing waivers were not scrutinized and Chiz was asking if the court court could open it. Somehow Pnoy, independence is something that must be earned it should not be a privileged. The whole nation is held hostage by politicians who performance are so mediocre reason people lives are still miserable and they are your party mates Noy. Your admin is placing ads in abs-cbn and frendly media firms to deodorized your admin. May nagawa ka rin naman that is talupan ang mga kalaban mo sa politika.

  • summum

    Corona’s ouster: Proof of an unchristian Leader’s vindictiveness.
    Justice is not vengeance. Vengeance is not justice.
    Justice is a virtue. Vengeance is a vice. Justice is the way of the civilized. Vengeance is the recourse of adult children, i.e., those with puerile mentality or juvenile disposition.
    Justice is based on truth. Vengeance is anchored on anger. Justice is a matter of what is right or wrong. Vengeance is in the realm of revenge. Justice and vengeance cannot coexist in one and the same subject person, about one and the same issue. Blessed are the just! Dangerous are the vengeful!
    The truth of the matter is that vengeance is injustice.
    There is a whale of a difference between being just and being vindictive — between the prosecution of a perceived malefactor and the persecution of someone presumed innocent until proved guilty. The difference here is that the first (prosecution) is in the realm of the rule of law, while the second (persecution) enters the sphere of unethical conduct. In other words, prosecution of considered offenders of the law is according to the demands of objective justice. The persecution however of someone is instigated by personal disgust anchored on base self-righteousness. This is wrong, improper — unjust.
    The vengeful is an offender of law and a violator or morals.
    The law promotes social justice which is first and foremost premised on commutative justice — equity between individuals. Vengeance is precisely violative not merely of commutative but also social justice. Reason: The norms of one-to-one justice elude someone vindictive who is thus eventually made a cause of social injustice in terms of offending against fair play within the human community. In short, a vengeful person is in effect a big community liability.
    Woe to people presided by a vengeful leadership!
    Instead of serving all, someone vengeful with leadership position chooses not only whom to favor and defend, but also whom to run after and penalize — all arguments to the contrary notwithstanding. The site as well as the might of a vindictive leader is focused more on particular hated individuals than on the common good or public welfare. The said leader in effect does not lead but is instead consumed by personal ire and disgust.
    Someone fair and just is a blessing to society as well as an asset to the search and pursuit of what is right and just. On the other hand, unfortunate are the people led by a narrow-minded public official who does not even know how to distinguish between justice and vengeance.
    What do you say?

      Can people wronged by the Marcoses not seek retribution without being labeled vindictive? Is bringing the corrupt Arroyo administration to justice vindictive? If seeking justice for all those wronged is vindictive, then my God is vindictive.
      Estrada is corrupt and so is Gloria and the nation needs to be cleansed of their influence. Every centavo stolen from the Flipino is a centavo taken from the welfare of the Filipino. If Pnoy becomes corrupt, I will wage my own personal campaign against him, but at the moment, I perceive he is not. He is not perfect, but he doesnt steal, and that is good enough for me.

         If we follow the thinking of Archbishop Emeritus Oscar V. Cruz, we do justice if we prosecute somebody within the realm of the rule of law. As far as the Marcoses are concerned, the PCGG filed so many cases against Mrs. Imelda Marcos, being the wife of Ferdinand Marcos Sr,  in the assumptions that she was part of the percieved corruptions made by her husband. Out of more than a hundred cases filed by PCGG, Mrs. Imelda Marcos was found Not Guilty for lack of evidence and some cases were dismissed, because the prosecutors failed to establish prima facie evidence. But PCGG was able to retrieved Billions of dollars  from Swiss banks and was turned  over to the Philippine government.
                   If you believed what has written in the Bible, God is not vendictive. Being creator of all things, He gets to set the rules.  God is perfectly just and must judge sin. Those who will follow His Commandments will be given opportunity to spend eternity with Him in a place where there is no suffering, death and disease.( Revelation 21: 3-4 )
                   Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III in my opinion is corrupt. If you observed the series of events during impeachment of former Chief Justice Corona, He corrupted and prostituted Congressmen by offering released of their respective PDAF or pork barrel if these congressmen  signed  the Articles of Impeachment. This information was revealed by Rep. Toby Tiangco of Navotas. Remember P-Noy was once a Congressman and  Senator and he has his share of pork barrel, millions of pesos under his control. If Benigno has nothing to hide, Why is it he will not sign a waiver ? Please do some research about The History of Hacienda Luisita, and then you will know  the truth.

      Before the election, the not so impressive performance of Pnoy is already evident. During that time, I said to myself, if I will vote for him, I think he will do less corruption, but I also think that he will do less result, and may not perform well. And I think that goes with other people.. he just win the election because, well, he is perceived as less corrupt than the next popular politician in the list.

      ok. He is now sitting as President. Is their a corruption? Of course yes… look at those KKK… Look at the Customs… Yap, but this is lesser compared to the previous one. Agree.
      Next question is, is he a brilliant president?… Sorry, I can only give 4/10. :)

         Your question is : Is democracy alive ?  By definition of ” democracy “; it is a government of the people. by the people and for the people.  A form of government in which  the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.  A state of society  characterized by formal equality of rights and previleges. Equal application of  rule of law.
              The administration of Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III has no equal protection of laws. One law for his friends and another law for his percieved enemies. He violated the Constitution with impunity. He violated the rule of law.  His political adviser , Ronald Llamas violated the laws ( DVD and AK47 issues) ,  Benigno did not order investigations. A certain Rico Puno, under secretary of DILG of Luneta massacre, exempted from punishment. Pending cases at Ombudsman Office of Nerio Acosta, Niel Tupaz Sr. All cases has no development. Sabi ni Benigno, ” Kayo ang Boss ko”. Sabi ng mga tao, “mag sign ka ng waiver”. Hindi n’ya  sinunod ang utos ng boss. No more equality of rights and previleges. This is now  a government of  Benigno,  by  Benigno and for the few people and friends of Benigno only .

    Democracy alive? Whatever Corona could have done, in no real democracy he could be ousted by using bribes, admin power, fake and manipulated evidence, illegal obtained documents and the worst, the active meddling of a president in a trial. In a real democracy, all those people would at least have been ousted also for violating any laws and rules.
    And if there is a “stumbling bloc” then it is a psychpathic, incompetent president who cannot think about the real problems because his brain id filled with vengeance.

    And may I add, the 20 senator-judges who voted for Corona’s removal were not swayed by opinions of foreign legal experts and authors on what is impeachable offense. They showed the independent thinking of the Filipino by relating their verdict of guilty to the intelligence and wisdom of the common Filipino.

    Removing Corona from the Supreme Court is certainly really marks a giant step in the fight against endemic corruption in the government even as it also bolstered democratic processes in our country.

    Corona’s removal through a constitutional process inevitably sends a clear and strong signal to government officials and rank and file, either engaged now in stealing public monies or with plans to do so in the future, that they can be removed from public office and even be prosecuted — if caught red-handed.

    Instilling fear in the heart and minds of crooks in government will certainly go a long way in curbing well-entrenched graft and corruption in our government.

    In this regard, PNoy is doing a great job although he also has to start chasing after scores of his appointees who are alleged to be committing irregularities in government.

    Our economy grew at 6.4% in the first quarter this year which is clear proof that his economic managers are also doing a good job. A good GDP figure though is far from enough if the benefits of robust economic growth do not filter to the poorest of the poor.

    Strong economic growth is good. But his key officials should also show improvements in poverty alleviation and creating more jobs for the benefit of the jobless. It is only by vigorously addressing these two key issues that he will ease criticisms of his administration.

      The impeachment of RCC is a wrongful indication that RCC did anything criminal but rather administrative in culpability. Simply put, your first sentence “Removing Corona from the Supreme Court is certainly really marks a giant step in the fight against endemic corruption in the government even as it also bolstered democratic processes in our country.” was rather erroneous since there was no corruption then (in the impeachment), until present, on RCC’s part.

      The only thing that ‘bolstered democratic processes in our country’ was the full closure of the impeachment trial, which is a democratic political exercise.

      Also, in case you haven’t noticed the Sandigan Bayan has always been there, and has been removing,disciplining and jailing public officials since way back. Former president Erap Ejercito was sentenced by the Sandigan Bayan for plunder. That is should be the best and most example of win against corruption.

        oh i remember that. that was a product of rejecting everything the previous administration has to suggest. If you remember, FM was set on the nuclear alternative for energy. It was scrapped without any alternative solution. Then came the time when the need came, and so we had to pay more.

        Until now we still pay more for electricity than any of our close Asian neighbors, including Japan.

        This goes to show that the socio-economic factors felt by one president almost half his term is actually the foresight of the previous president. During these first three years he should have sought planning for the next 6 and implementation at least for the last 3 years he still is in office.

        IF as they say PNoy is noynoying and not planning anything since he came into office, we may feel what ever failure 3 years into his term just about when the plans of the last president becomes no longer applicable.

    For the mothers, their right to freedom of choice through education of birth control.

    For the forced labor oppressed, the right to earn a minimum wage that’s actually enforced.

    For the church, the right to pray quietly and stay out of government affairs.

    For the corrupt, the right to a speedy trial and long prison sentence.

      “For Corona, a good kick in his but was satisfying…lets do that some more.”

      -Just exactly how was RCC a stumbling block in democracy? If you remember from the news transcripts, back when PNoy met with RCC as CJ, PNoy wanted to form a truth commission that would find fault against GMA. It was RCC who said that in order for it to be lawful, it must not be focused on one person (GMA).  Considering the unlimited resources and powers of the government against one person, wasn’t it unjust for PNoy to be doing that in the first place?

      -You said democracy was about having a choice, are your choices now any way different when RCC was CJ?  And not choice of new CJ, that is not for you to do unless you are PNoy.

      -Just exactly how is it that RCC was able to tarnish democracy as CJ?

      -Kick a man when he is down, why don’t you.

      Secondly, all the ‘choices’ that you have listed. Aren’t they for PNoy to adhere to? RCC as CJ & AJ’s was just there to settle disputes in court.

      Lastly, and shortly, republic means represented, democratic means ruled by most people.

      • Erewhon Revisited

        Sus ikaw naman pusong mamon, i’m sure he’s just trying to mang-asar, kahit closed na yan. But since you brought it up:

        -Just exactly how was RCC a stumbling block in democracy?

        There are four main principles to think about when talking democracy, equity, freedoms, justice and representation.

        “Chief Justice Renato Corona used to work as a senior officer of the
        tax and corporate counseling group of the tax division of a prominent
        accounting firm, Sycip Gorres and Velayo and Company. He also taught
        commercial law, taxation and corporate law at the Ateneo de Manila
        University for 17 years. I find it hard to believe his testimony that
        he does not understand accounting.” Of course this is not lying, and  his dollar investments while in elementary, I’m sure it was an honest mistake.

        3 “equal” branches….

        Gawin nating:

        Pres. Pnoy lying under oath that he doesn’t understand accounting when he taught commercial law, taxation and corporate law at the Ateneo de Manila
        University for 17 years. Investing in dollars since grade school, used to work as a senior officer of the
        tax and corporate counseling group of the tax division of a prominent
        accounting firm, SGVC.

        Now someone asks “Just exactly how was Pnoy a stumbling block in democracy?”

        CJ is just 1 vote, so why single him out? Consult Murphy’s Law.

        “a good kick in his butt” – you don’t take this literally syempre, dahil unang una bawal yan, and doing that even to a former CJ who’s impeached ewan ko lang kung saan ka damputin. LOL

        Laughing at Mr. Lauro Vizconde is kicking a man when he is down.

              Alam mo Tonypogi,  walang nagawa si Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III sa nakalipas na dalawang taong sa kanyang  panunungkulan. Maraming promise sa panahon sa eleksyon. Daang Matuwid, Transparency , Accountability and Honesty. Ang election slogan niya ” Walang Mahirap kung Walang Corrupt.
              Daang Matuwid: Karamihan sa mga tauhang ipinapasok sa gobierno ni Benigno, may mga kaso na corruption sa Ombudsman.  I’ll just name few: Nerio Acosta, Niel Tupaz Sr.  Ronald Llamas, isang leader ng komunista.
               Transparency  : Promise ito niya sa panahon sa nakaraang eleksyon. Hindi siya mag sign ng Waiver, para pagbukas sa kanyang bank accounts. Transparency sa mga kalaban niya sa politika, pero para sa kanya hindi pwede.
               Accountability : Si Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III naging Kongresman sa siyam na taon. Walang nagawa, walang projects sa Tarlac. Walang  maski isang batas na siya ang nag sponsor  o batas  na galing sa utak niya. Ang tanong ? Ano ang nagyari sa sa kanyang pork barrel ? Saan napunta ?
               Walang mahirap, kung Walang Corrupt : Ang resulta sa survey ng SWS, na ginawa Enero 2012, dumarami ang mga mahihirap tapos sa dalawang taon ni Benigno. Si Ruffy Biazon, ang Buraeau of Customs Commissioner, mismo  ang nagsabi na patuloy pa rin ang technical smuggling. Ibig sabihin walang smuggling kung walang corruption. Walang pagbabago.  Milyon milyong Pilipino na walang trabaho, mga ordinaryong laborer, mga professional, mga 300,000 licensed nurses…etc..walang trabaho.
               Honesty : Nang ini interview si Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III ni Anna Coren,  isang CNN correspondent sa program “Talk Asia “  mga limang linggo  na ang nakalipas, sabi ni Benigno nawala na ang corruption sa Pilipinas. Kinabukasan, ang Headline sa Newspaper: 15 Billion Pesos Worth of Smuggled Pork Meat Bared.
               Maraming problema ang Pilipinas na dapat lutasin.  Ang problema dito si Benigno mismo. Hindi niya alam kung ano ang mga problema. Ang gusto sa mga Pilipino, ang unang lutasin ang ekonomiya. Pero walang foreign investors. Inaaway ang China, kaya bagsak ang banana export. May nabubulok na saging na hindi tinanggap sa China worth P700 million pesos. Maraming pang problema, maliban sa ekonomiya. pero ang na sa utak ni Benigno puro vengeance sa mga kalaban sa politika. Nag punta sa Amerika, ang kwento, Corona pa rin. Independence day kahapon, ang kwento, Corona pa rin.
               Mabuti ka pa d’yan sa California pa relax relax na lang, pero dito sa Pilipinas  maraming mga kababayan natin na ginugotom, walang trabaho.

    Happy Independence Day to my fellow countrymen. Let us not forget our duly elected President’s father who proved to us that the Filipino is worth dying for and gave up his life so that we can enjoy the freedom we have today.

    When it seemed like all we needed was a single bullet to rid ourselves of this traitor Corona,   (yes, he is a traitor being guilty of betrayal of public trust), we did not use a gun. We are not done yet with Corona, his unexplained wealth is ill-gotten wealth and must be recovered and utilized for the poor Pinoys.  BIR should make him pay.

    The three MAD stooges of Corona who protected and wanted him to continue with his evil deeds, must also be made accountable.  Bongbong Marcos who has a once in a life time chance to apologize to the country for his father’s deeds in making a mockery of our democracy, now continues to protect his family’s ill-gotten wealth.  Joker Arroyo is an old man, balimbing and his slow speech will continue to be an irritant.  Miriam Defensor-Santiago is totally beyond redemption and should be confined in a mental hospital.

      Simply, there’s a lot of difference between Ninoy and PNoy. One is the president, the other is not. One has a full head of hair, the other has not.

      “When it seemed like all we needed was a single bullet to rid ourselves of this traitor Corona,   (yes, he is a traitor being guilty of betrayal of public trust), we did not use a gun. We are not done yet with Corona, his unexplained wealth is ill-gotten wealth and must be recovered and utilized for the poor Pinoys.  BIR should make him pay.”

      A bullet. hmmmmmm. I do not agree. Thank got we no longer are a Capital Punishment country.

      Unexplained. Uncorroborated testimonies by RCC himself in the IC explained his USDollar account coming from savings and money investments since 1970′s. This includes time deposits interests which could easily be confirmed, and corroborated by bank fund managers, etc. As it has been explained, it is up to the prosecution (ombudsman) if the source has been ill gotten.  But the challenge here is for the ombudsman to prove, not the other way around.

      Please do not mistake that these USD time deposits and other investments are without tax. They have been taxed long before interest has been compounded into the principal. (final tax)

      “The three MAD stooges of Corona who protected and wanted him to continue with his evil deeds, must also be made accountable.  Bongbong Marcos who has a once in a life time chance to apologize to the country for his father’s deeds in making a mockery of our democracy, now continues to protect his family’s ill-gotten wealth.  Joker Arroyo is an old man, balimbing and his slow speech will continue to be an irritant.  Miriam Defensor-Santiago is totally beyond redemption and should be confined in a mental hospital.”

      The one greatest strength of democratic republic is that we are represented by our leaders. Even though the guilty vote seems to be popular, I commend that there are other leaders that can see with a different perspective no matter how unpopular it is, or how un popular it may cast them.

      Read carefully the decision of the dissenting judges. None of it was irrational, in fact, it was quite objective. Much as I do not like Sen Santiago and Sen Arroyo (especially how these two talk) I cannot fault them for their reasoning.  Its the reason alone that should stand, even if you hate the very person of the speaker. Take for instance Sen Santiago, where to her, it was more on the form of complaint and how it was formed, as well as the appreciation of the facts in reference to rules of court and rules of evidence. Where in fact it was on a standard court, the complaint itself would have been thrown out of the window.

      “God bless the Philippines.”

      God bless the Philippines!

              What makes the father of Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III a hero ? Don’t you know  that Ninoy Jr. was too ambitious to become president in our country ? He died because of  his ambition.  Corona is not a traitor. He was found guilty by senator judges because of his incomplete SALN, which is not an impeachable offense. Benigno Aquino III is the traitor to our country. He violated the Rule of Law. He violated the constitutuion. He violated the rights and previleges ang equal protection of laws. He corrupted and prostituted majority members of Congress. He offered the release of pork barrel of the congressmen, if they signed the articles of impeachment. This was revealed by Rep. Toby Tiangco of Navotas. .Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III is a big Liar. He lied to the whole world that corruptions was eradicated, when he was interviewed by CNN correspondent.  Check the records of Bureau of Customs. He lied about his promised Daang Matuwid, Transparency , Accountability and Honesty. For Benigno, one law is applicable to his friends and another law to his percieved enemies. Daang Matuwid  ? Check the records of friends of Benigno filed at Ombudsman Office.No developments as far as the cases of graft and corruption of Niel Tupaz Sr. The graft and corruption case of Nerio Acosta. The graft and corruption case of Ernesto  Reyes. Remember the case of Ronald Llamas(DVD and AK47) Rico Puno of Luneta massacre. The Mendiola massacre, wherein 13 Hacienda Luisita farmers killed at the gates of Malacanang. The president then was Cory Aquino. The murders at Hacienda Luisita  You ask  Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III about this. Now tell me. who is the traitor of our country ? 
                 Sen Joker Arroyo is a man with principles. He can not tolerate the people who violated the Rule of Law. He can not tolerate evidences that were illegally acquired. Would you believed that evidences given to “small lady ” and left at the gate of Congressman’s house.
                 Pinoydinako, are you a lawyer ? Is your credential is more than enough to surpassed the qualifications of an International Court judge, like Sen Miriam Defensor Santiago ?
                 More than one hundred cases filed against Imelda Marcos by PCGG, in the assumptions that as wife of  late Pres. Marcos, she was part of the misdeeds of her husband, were dismissed for lack of evidence. But the government was able to retrieved more than one billion dollars from swiss banks. That is what we called due process of law. Bongbong has nothing to do with the assumed misdeeds of his father.
                 As enumerated above, Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino is big liar and traitor to our country. Impeachment this time against Benigno will not prosper because Congress is under his control…

Cory Aquino.PHl need a strong president like Marcos, we could have been taken over by the communist lead by Jose Maria Sison who orchestrated the violence resulting to the death of many soldiers and innocent Filipinos. The rich elite who has not paid taxes despised Marcos and they want someone like Cory who has an ulterior motive( to protect Hacienda Luisita.)

        Impeachment was illegally brought , and orchestrated by this President along with Congressmen and Senator. The hearing was just a show, CJ Corona was singled out simply because of his strength as a lawmaker-and his stellar accomplishments is something this President cannot match. this Presidetn has to make him a scapegoat for he has not done anything to improve the conomy and to top it all, Hacienda Luisita ,the primary purpose of the manipulation he must  so theywill not lose Hacienda Luisita which they illegally own for decades. And only this SC  has given the justice the poor farmers has been waiting for and the farmers finally get what is legally theirs.

    ABS-CBN
    ‘Unbridled democracy yields mediocre leaders,’ says ex-Malaysian PM

    MANILA,
    Philippines – Malaysia’s Prime Minister of 22 years, Mahathir Mohamad
    today questioned Filipino-style democracy and raised the spectre of
    mediocre political leadership as the Philippines marks its 114th
    Independence Day.

    Mahathir was conferred an Honorary Professor Title by the University of Santo Tomas this morning.

    In his conferment speech, Mahathir said, “No doubt democracy is being
    practised by this country. But is it really what democracy is all
    about? Is democracy the end or the means? If we think that democracy is
    the end, then well and good. But why did we change from autocracy to
    democracy? Wasn’t it because autocracy had failed to deliver the good
    life that we wanted? We believed that since it is the people who
    disapproved of autocracy, then if the people were to rule the country,
    then surely they would rule themselves well.”

    Mahathir reminded his Filipinos audience that one pitfall of
    unbridled democracy is a poor leadership. “The leader in particular must
    be incorruptible. His being so will lessen the level of corruption
    among those under him. There will still be corruption but the degree
    would be less…In every country there are great people who should lead,
    but seeing the filth in politics ad the fears of those who come into
    power they are unwilling to take the risk. And so very often the leaders
    are mediocre people at best, present company accepted.”

    Mahathir later on added, “We cannot assume majority of the people
    must be intelligent. In many instances, majority is not intelligent and
    minority refuses to be Involved because they think politics is dirty. If
    you don’t manage democracy well it is not going to pay dividends.“

    Later on in the open forum, Mahathir was told that his contemporary,
    former President Ferdiand Marcos was a dictator. His response, “Marcos
    was elected, he was elected after he was elected, power corrupts that’s
    what happens to him. your choosing him was still a democratic procedure,
    look what happens when you make a wrong choice.”

    Unstable democracies, technological advances

    Mahathir likewise pointed out that as seen in other countries, unbridled democracy is bad since it makes countries unstable.

    “We are living in a tumultuous world, in a world of political
    turmoil, in a world of economic turmoil, in a world of social turmoil.
    We are seeing the collapse of moral values and of beliefs. All the
    things that we used to value are being questioned, scrutinised and in
    many cases rejected, to be replaced by what is called freedom, freedom
    which is enjoyed by some at the expense of others, often at the expense
    of the community as a whole.”

    Mahathir pointed out that technology has been abused to undermine
    governments. “ We are seeing advances in technology, advances which
    bring great benefits but which are also open to abuses, negating much of
    the benefits. Privacy is being invaded. Secrets, including sensitive
    military secrets are being leaked in the name of freedom of
    information.  The whistle-blowers are hailed as heroes.  Nothing is
    sacred any more.”

    Mahathir added, “When you create a problem by revealing people’s official secrets, something has to be done about it.”

    Demoracy and poverty

    Mahathir noted that democracy was supposed to be the answer to
    poverty under authoritarian regimes, yet in many cases, it failed to
    bring progress.

    “Democracy works only when the people understand the limitations of
    democracy. When people think only of the freedoms of democracy and know
    nothing of the implied responsibilities, democracy will not bring the
    goodness that it promises. Instead it will result only in instability
    and instability will not permit development to take place and the people
    to enjoy the benefits of freedom and the rights that democracy
    promises. No sooner is a Government elected when the losers would hold
    demonstrations and general strikes accusing the Government of
    malpractices.“

    Mahathir argued that people cannot govern themselves on their own,
    since not everyone will be competent to do so. “Why has democracy not
    delivered the good life we expected of it? Simply put, it is impossible
    for the people to rule themselves. There are too many of them and they
    cannot agree on anything. Government of the people, by the people and
    for the people would result in a stalemate, in no Government at all, in
    anarchy.”

    Mahathir used this to justify his country’s brand of democracy. “So
    what do we do? Do we accept the failures of democracy or de we make some
    adjustments and sacrifice some of the liberalism of democracy so we may
    extract something from the system? I will admit freely that Malaysia is
    not a liberal democracy. We see democracy principally as providing an
    “easy way” to change Governments. No revolution, no civil wars, no Arab
    spring. Just vote and the Government will be brought down or re-elected
    according to the wishes of the people.”

    Corruption and power

    Mahathir pointed out that those who overstay in power do so to
    protect themselves from being haunted by their past in government.

    “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This is a
    truism. But if one is frequently reminded that one day one will lose
    power and when that happens, others will hound you and make life
    miserable for you, that might help you overcome temptations. The more
    corrupt they are, the more they would want to hold the position for
    life.  They fear giving up power, because they know the people would
    rise and seek to punish them, even killing them.”

    In the 2nd half of his speech, Mahathir shared lessons from his own
    term as Malaysia’s leader. One lesson is the need to minimize conflicts
    among its different races. ”This sharing and recognition of each others’
    position reduced much of the tendency to friction between the races and
    ensured relative political stability – a necessity for economic
    development of the country.  Unfortunately, it makes national unity
    practically impossible.”

    Need for industrialization, education

    Mahathir also stressed the importance of industrializing.”
    Industrialisation became necessary because agriculture could not create
    enough jobs for the growing population. Jobless people threaten the
    stability of the country and undermine the very effort to create the
    jobs that they need.”

    Mahathir said government must welcome more foreign direct
    investments, and help businesses. ”At a time when newly-independent
    countries were nationalising foreign-owned industries and businesses, we
    decided to invite foreigners, including the former colonial masters to
    come back and invest in industries in Malaysia.”

    “Then we thought that Government must help businesses to succeed. The
    Japanese were condemned for doing this. But we saw no reason why
    Government should not help business to make profits. Twenty-eight per
    cent of the profits by businesses belong to the Government anyway
    through the corporate tax they had to pay. Basically the Government was
    working for its 28% of the profit. We were not just helping the
    businessmen to make profits.”

    Mahathir said investments in education were made in this regard. “To
    increase the revenue of the people Government spent almost 25% of the
    national budget on education and training. Thus foreign as well as local
    investors were assured of a supply of educated and well trained staff.”

    Successful ASEAN

    Towards the end of his speech, Mahathir lauded the Association of SouthEast Asian nations for its help to its member-nations.

    ”I believe that ASEAN is the most successful of the groupings of
    developing countries, But in these troubled times, we need to come
    closer together, to cooperate more productively and to make use of our
    half a billion people as a market in order to gain more offsets for
    enlarging and diversifying our industries.  We also need to cooperate
    with the three dynamic Northeast Asian countries. 

    ” Malaysia had proposed an East Asian Economic Community to maximise
    the strength of our countries.  Things are finally moving in that
    direction.”

    Mahathir added, “Really, the countries of Southeast Asia have great
    potentials for growth, prosperity and empowerment. All we need is people
    and leaders who love their country and people more than they love
    themselves.”

    Doctors and lawyers

    Mahathir also candidly answered questions from a panel of recators and the media after his speech.

    Mahathir, a doctor by profession, was asked who between doctors and
    lawyers made better leaders. His reply: “Doctors do have certain
    advantage, we are methodical in the way we approach problems to cure a
    person … we look at the history doing physical exam and doing lab test
    before we conclude. He may be suffering from 3 different diseases and
    see which to experiment first. If the patient survives, good, If he
    dies, sorry. Lawyers argue too much.”

    Nearly a decade after leaving office, Mahathir said he is far from
    retiring. “I’m still busy, I’m still much involved with the poltiics of
    the country.”

    Asked about the one lesson he wants the next set of leaders to learn,
    Mahathir said, “If you want to be a leader, be a leader. If you want to
    think about yourself, there’s no place for your own personal needs as a
    leader.”

    this is where it shows how shallow your mind is…at the very beginning, even before the impeachment, if you have kept your mouth shut since you already know what the outcome will be, on this speech, you could have said something like:  it is regrettable that chief justice corona was removed from the supreme court, but the law of land has to be followed and enforced if only for the filipinos to see that the straight road is not limited to the have nots but to the haves as well and to all branches of the government…let this be a lesson that no one is above the law”…it would have had a nice ring for an independence speech….fire your speech writer, chief of staff and whoever is feeding you with non-believable speeches like this one…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/27G4BBGO4TT3COI2THUZTIPMBU Kaya

    Sensya na. Thread closed na dun sa last. Di pa tayo tapos. =D
    Here’s my comment. Sorry, busy e. I don’t want you to think that YOU were RIGHT.

    You quoted Rule 131, Section 3: The following presumptions are satisfactory if uncontradicted, but may be contradicted and overcome by other evidence: (a)That a person is innocent of crime or wrong;

    This was meant to apply to crime or any PUBLIC (government power vs individual right) wrong not criminal. If private WRONG (individual right versus individual right), the presumption of good faith applies. If administrative, the presumption of regularity applies (public office is not a private right). Applying it to civil and administrative cases does not make sense and NOT supported by LAW or the Constitution.

    The Rules of procedure is not really a law but it is accorded legal effect to facilitate trial. It was meant to establish procedure in applying the remedies of substantive law. Rules are product of the exercise of the rulemaking powers of the Supreme Court as provided by the Constitution. However, it cannot contravene laws legislated by Congress or Constitutional provisions. The extension of the presumption of innocence to non-criminal cases is not within the authority of the Supreme Court. You don’t have to take my word for it. It does not matter.

    Since its clear that this will be a unacceptable for you, let’s simplify. Your main argument is that the prosecution should have furnished evidence showing proof of ill-gotten wealth before CORONA can be convicted.

    To quote YOU: “Whattt?? Batas ng anong bansa ba galing yan? Kasi alam ko the accused is presumed innocent (of ill gotten wealth) until proven guilty ( of owning ill gotten wealth).”

    I SAID: “REPUBLIC ACT NO. 1379AN ACT DECLARING FORFEITURE IN FAVOR OF THE STATE ANY PROPERTY FOUND TO HAVE BEEN UNLAWFULLY ACQUIRED BY ANY PUBLIC OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE AND PROVIDING FOR THE PROCEEDINGS THEREFOR. Sec. 2. Filing of petition. Whenever any public officer or employeehas acquired during his incumbency an amount of property which is manifestly out of proportion to his salary as such public officer or employee and to his other lawful income and the income from legitimately acquired property, said property shall be presumed prima facie to have been unlawfully acquired…

    I ALSO SAID: “Rule 130 ADMISSIONS AND CONFESSIONS of Rule of Evidence Sec. 26.Admission of a party. — The act, declaration or omission of a party as to a relevant fact may be given in evidence against him.”

    To SUMMARIZE: R.A 1379 fosters the presumption that unexplained wealth is UNLAWFULLY acquired. CORONA admitted to court the existence of 180,000,000 pesos worth of money he previously denied owning. His admission is evidence against him.
    CORONA is not being impeached for ill-gotten wealth. He was impeached for NON-DECLARATION of his hidden assets in his SALN. Henares and Carpio-Morales already testified in court showing that CORONA misdeclared his wealth in his SALN. CORONA ratified the testimonies in admitting that he owned 180,000,000 that he did not declare in his SALN.

    There is NO NEED to present evidence of ill-gotten wealth because it was not THE cause of impeachment. Your opinion that the prosecution needed to prove it was ill-gotten was WRONG. Clear naman di ba?

    As I said, you don’t have to take my words for it. Take CORONA’s WORDS in his ponencia in the case Republic v Sandiganbayan ( July 15, 2003 G.R. No. 152154) where he decided that the presumption of unlawful acquisition by a public officer was applicable to the Marcoses.

    To quote CORONA himself: “…the issue of whether or not petitioner Republic was able to prove its case for forfeiture in accordance with the requisites of Sections 2 and 3 of RA 1379 now takes center stage. The law raises the prima facie presumption that a property is unlawfully acquired, hence subject to forfeiture, if its amount or value is manifestly disproportionate to the official salary and other lawful income of the public officer who owns it.
    Hence, Sections 2 and 6 of RA 137976 provide: x x x x x x Section 2. Filing of petition. – Whenever any public officer or employee has acquired during his incumbency an amount or property which is manifestly out of proportion to his salary as such public officer or employee and to his other lawful income and the income from legitimately acquired property, said property shall be presumed prima facie to have been unlawfully acquired. x x x x x x Sec. 6. Judgment – If the respondent is unable to show to the satisfaction of the court that he has lawfully acquired the property in question, then the court shall declare such property in question, forfeited in favor of the State, and by virtue of such judgment the property aforesaid shall become the property of the State. Provided, That no judgment shall be rendered within six months before any general election or within three months before any special election. The Court may, in addition, refer this case to the corresponding Executive Department for administrative or criminal action, or both. From the above-quoted provisions of the law, the following facts must be established in order that forfeiture or seizure of the Swiss deposits may be effected: (1) ownership by the public officer of money or property acquired during his incumbency, whether it be in his name or otherwise, and (2) the extent to which the amount of that money or property exceeds, i. e., is grossly disproportionate to, the legitimate income of the public officer.

    CORONA cited the same provisions I cited to you. He said the LAW raises the presumption that it was ill-gotten. The presumption is raised even before a case is filed as long as it fulfills the requirements. He also a similar, more applicable section in judicial admission than the one I cited: “Prescinding from the aforesaid admissions, Section 4, Rule 129 of the Rules of Court provides that:Section 4. – Judicial admissions – An admission, verbal or written, made by a party in the course of the proceedings in the same case does not require proof. The admission may be contradicted only by showing that it was made through palpable mistake or that no such admission was made.81
    ” We hold that it was not for petitioner to establish the Marcoses’ other lawful income or income from legitimately acquired property for the presumption to apply because, as between petitioner and respondents, the latter were in a better position to know if there were such other sources of lawful income. And if indeed there was such other lawful income, respondents should have specifically stated the same in their answer. Insofar as petitioner Republic was concerned, it was enough to specify the known lawful income of respondents.’

    CORONA said that the government did not need to prove the income was unlawful. The government only needed to show the lawful income of the Marcos. The Marcoses should have been the one to show it was lawful.

    CORONA SUMMARIZED: Section 2 of RA 1379 explicitly states that “whenever any public officer or employee has acquired during his incumbency an amount of property which is manifestly out of proportion to his salary as such public officer or employee and to his other lawful income and the income from legitimately acquired property, said property shall be presumed prima facie to have been unlawfully acquired. x x x” The elements which must concur for this prima facie presumption to apply are: (1) the offender is a public officer or employee; (2) he must have acquired a considerable amount of money or property during his incumbency; and (3) said amount is manifestly out of proportion to his salary as such public officer or employee and to his other lawful income and the income from legitimately acquired property. It is undisputed that spouses Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos were former public officers. Hence, the first element is clearly extant. The second element deals with the amount of money or property acquired by the public officer during his incumbency. The Marcos couple indubitably acquired and owned properties during their term of office. In fact, the five groups of Swiss accounts were admittedly owned by them. There is proof of the existence and ownership of these assets and properties and it suffices to comply with the second element. The third requirement is met if it can be shown that such assets, money or property is manifestly out of proportion to the public officer’s salary and his other lawful income. It is the proof of this third element that is crucial in determining whether a prima facie presumption has been established in this case.

    Let’s apply the WISDOM of CORONA to HIS case. 1) CORONA WAS a public official. CHECK 2) He did not declare his hidden assets when he assumed his position. He had not shown he had 180,000,000 when he assumed office. CHECK He said he invested in dollars CONTINUOUSLY from the time the exchange rate was 2:1. He was investing in dollars before he went to college (high school) up to the time he was impeached. Even if we suspend disbelief on the absurd claim, CORONA should have declared them when he assumed office. He did not. It could have been only acquired during his incumbency. CHECK 3) The hidden wealth of 180,000,000 is out of proportion to his LAWFUL income as a public official or as a tax lawyer (who did not know credit-debit from his assets and liabilities). CHECK

    Corona’s lawful income was established by his declarations in his SALN and tax returns. He ADMITTED he did not declare his hidden wealth. This undeclared wealth is OBVIOUSLY out of proportion to his declared lawful income. To argue otherwise is STUPID.

    The prosecutors only needed to show the lawful income of CORONA and the existence of undeclared accounts and money.
    CORONA’s ADMISSION, as a judicial admission under section 4 of Rule 129, did not require proof and he was bound by it. Ergo, the prosecutors no longer needed to show proof because CORONA HIMSELF admitted the charge of non-declaration. CORONA tried to qualify his admission but his further declarations were not backed by documents.

    TAKE NOTE: The high-caliber lawyers of the Marcoses, the petitioners and the justices (CORONA included) did NOT even mention presumption of innocence in this landmark case for ill-gotten wealth. CLEAR? Criminal and forfeiture cases may still follow.

    R.A. 1379 and the presumption only apply to cases involving public officials and their undeclared wealth. It does not contravene presumption of innocence in criminal cases. Your fears of Martial Law is unfounded. It does not also apply to your fear of being unjustly accused of sexual harassment. =D

    As I repeatedly said the ISSUE in the IMPEACHMENT is still NON-DECLARATION of ALL assets in his SALN amounting to betrayal of Public Trust. I just wanted to show YOU for YOUR EDUCATION what CORONA HIMSELF thought of the presumption of ill-gotten wealth. BTW, there is NO “presumption of innocence of (ill-gotten wealth)” as YOU have asserted in you main claim. Google it if you want.

    If YOU STILL argue against the validity and requirements of the presumption of ill-gotten wealth under R.A 1379 as against the presumption of innocence, then DISPUTE it with CORONA HIMSELF.

  • lostRunes

    I quoted the actual rules of evidence of the impeachment court. THEREFORE IT APPLIES TO THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL. Sorry, you lost me after saying “Applying it to civil and administrative cases does not make sense”. Besides stating an opinion, it is very clear that the RULES OF EVIDENCE are there so that DUE PROCESS is given to the accused. Enrile stated it again and again, Corona has the right to due process. Even Noynoy stated that Corona should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. And now you want me to believe your opinion? Even pro-Noynoy justice Carpio insisted there is a presumption of innocence even for an administrative case. Kahit sa loob ng companya, pag may kaso ka ng harrassment or whatever, the company will afford you due process. And still you insist that the rule of the impeachment trial is incorrect? Ikaw lang po nag iisa. Kahit mga kakampi mo agree sa akin.

    You always quote RA 1379 which is “AN ACT DECLARING FORFEITURE IN FAVOR OF THE STATE ANY PROPERTY FOUND
    TO HAVE BEEN UNLAWFULLY ACQUIRED BY ANY PUBLIC”.
    “OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE AND
    PROVIDING FOR THE
    PROCEEDINGS THEREFOR”. If you want the state to acquire Corona’s money, then you can do so, following the procedure AS STATED IN THIS LAW.”The Solicitor General, upon complaint by any taxpayer to the city or
    provincial fiscal who shall conduct a previous inquiry similar to
    preliminary investigations in criminal cases and shall certify to the
    Solicitor General that there is reasonable ground to believe that there
    has been committed a violation of this Act and the respondent is
    probably guilty thereof, shall file, in the name and on behalf of the
    Republic of the Philippines, in the Court of First Instance of the city
    or province where said public officer or employee resides or holds
    office, a petition for a writ commanding said officer or employee to
    show cause why the property aforesaid, or any part thereof, should not
    be declared property of the State: . ”

    Exceot that you can’t, because “Provided, That no such
    petition shall be filed within one year before any general election or
    within three months before any special election”

    The state wants to acquire Marcos’ wealth citing this law. Clear sa akin yon. Anong connect non sa rights ni Corona to be presumed innocent sa impeachment trial?

    You think Corona is a liar, an untrustworthy civil servant who earned 180 million pesos through corrupt practices, yet you quote his words like the Bible. Ikaw na nga nagsabi, Supreme Court justice’s words are not to be trusted. So why should I believe his interpretation? Kailanman hindi ako believe diyan sa Corona na yan. A lousy orator and a boring teacher. But I believe in his rights. Kasi kung hindi ko paglaban ang rights ng kahit sinong accused,, sino ang lalaban para sa karapatan ko kung gusto ako ikulong ni Noynoy for whatever reasons?

    If you want me to think that I am not right, then you failed miserably. I commend your diligence though. Noynoy might want you as Chief justice.
