After ‘Paquito Diaz’, comes Vice President ‘Jojomor’ Binay

FORT DEL PILAR, Baguio City – After “Paquito Diaz”, comes Vice President “Jojomor”, wait “Jejomor” Binay.

And like the first incident, the mix-up in Binay’s name was committed by another man in uniform.

At the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Homecoming here Saturday, retired Lieutenant General Edgardo Batenga, was tasked to introduce the guest of honor and speaker.

In his introduction, Batenga addressed the Vice President first as “Jojomor” Binay and then with “Jejomor” Binay.

Batenga nonetheless continued with his introduction of the “twice-wronged” Binay to the amusement of his audience.

Binay took his oath as an honorary member of the PMA Class of 1988, the first to take oath in public.

“As far as I know, this is the only occasion where we are inducting someone that coincides with the alumni homecoming. It’s because there is an occasion that we are celebrating,” PMA spokesman Captain Lynette Flores told reporters in mixed English and Filipino.

The PMA “Maringal” Class of 1988 is the host class for this year’s alumni homecoming.

“Pag sa honorary members kasi namin, lalo yung coming from the outside, gusto namin sa classmates namin, lalo yung those coming from the outside, ay yung they can cope with all of the activities of the supporting class, they should promote camaraderie, brotherhood, fraternal relationship within the members,” Senior Superintendent Ferdinand Daway, the Philippine National Police Firearms and Explosives Office Chief and PMA Class ’88 President, told reporters on why they chose Binay as a member.

But Daway also brushed off speculations that the oath taking was election-related.

He added that in their constitutional bylaws, the PMA Alumni Association Incorporated (PMAAAI) is allowed to adopt honorary members, paternal members and associate members.

Daway also said that it took a while before an honorary member could take an oath.

In the case of Binay, a Marine reservist, he was adopted by the class years back.

In his speech at the program, Binay pledged to continue housing programs for the military.

“Ang programang pabahay para sa ating mga kawal ay bahagi lamang ng pagsisikap ng inyong pamahalaan na pagandahin ang inyong buhay bilang pagkilala sa inyong hindi matatawarang ambag sa paghubog ng isang bagong Pilipinas,” he said.

After the program, Binay said in an ambush interview with reporters that he was already used to hearing his name pronounced wrongly.

He said that his name Jejomar stood for “Jesus,” “Joseph,” “Mary,” and “St. Martin.”

In January during turnover ceremonies for the new chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, then outgoing military chief Jesse Dellosa introduced Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. as Paquito Diaz but corrected himself immediately, having realized the faux pas.

  • joshua kings

    similarities of binay with gloria macapagal-arroyo:
    1. same height?;
    2. both are pragmatic/machiavellian; (many say that they will sell their souls to the devil just to achieve their ambitions?);
    3. binay wants to be president;gma was president;
    4. both are seen and believed to be corrupt?;
    5. both are friends with men of dubious integrity;
    6. both are said to have enriched themselves while in power;
    7. both are ‘mayabang ang dating.';
    8. both’s spouses are chubby, hehe;
    9. both had their children elected to build political dynasties;
    10. both will not/did not serve and protect well the interests of the country?;

    and this takes the cake, tho it is just rumor: and yet to be proven: both will lie, cheat and steal to achieve their evil ends?….thus bound to be corrupt?

    will you vote for them?  NO, UNLESS YOU ARE STUPID (one who commits the same mistake again is stupid, right?)

         Mr. spitfire suggest, if you have time to pls. check, investigate and ask old people from Makati who is binay. You don’t need to have proof or documents to prove it because it’s reality not just a rumors. The money, the cakes, the free tuitions, the free hospital charges, etc. etc. etc. are all money of the taxpayers, not own by binay and in addition while he was spending Makati’s money, he at the same time kept a huge slice of it. By the way, do you know what and where binay before he was installed by tita cory as OIC of Makati? a mere citizen living in an ordinary apartment but where is he now. Where did he get millions to buy house and lot at porbes park, and many more.

    Looks like Binay is going to be the biggest joke of the decade. 

    Those mix-up in names is a premonition that a Binay presidency in 2016 is going to be the biggest joke, a joke on the people, a joke that will make the entire Filipino people cry in pain, anguish, despair and disappointment. A joke that will not only hurt their pockets, it will also shatter their dreams of seeing a Philippines with a restored dignity, a dignity stolen by Marcos and GMA, a dignity painstakingly being restored now by Pnoy till 2016.

    Actually those generals are not the only ones making fun of Binay. 

    Binay, himself had also made fun of himself.

    Binay said that the biggest reason why Makati is one of the richest cities in MM today is because he made it rich by being its mayor for 20+. I have a hearty laugh with tears in my eyes for sadness. 

    Binay, true to his being a joker and a liar, forgot to tell the people that way back in the early 60’s and 70’s, a time when Binay was just starting his career as an unknown human rights lawyer, the biggest names in business world like the Sorianos, Cojuangcos, Angs, Dy’s, etc, had put already their money in Makati to make it as the premier financial district, creating world class roads, subdivisions, tall buildings following the Ayala’s who had successfully blazed the trail by creating Ayala Ave., Forbes Park, San Lorenzo Village and other world class-subdivisions. 

    These biggest businessmen were residents of these subdivisions.

    I can tell this correctly for I worked in the early 80’s till early 2000’s for the 4 of the most prestigious engineering consultancy firms in Makati and counting the Sorianos and the Ayalas as our clients.      Binay became a mayor of when Makati was already a by-word in the business world. When Binay stole the credits of the transformation of makati from those businessmen, he figuratively aped Tito Sotto who also stole the works of 5 bloggers and Sen Kennedy by plagiarizing them.

    I wonder who will commit the mix-up again. Would it be Pnoy who will address Binay as Mr. Jejomar Bi-anay?

    If that happens, it is not going to be a joke anymore. It’s the truth for Binay is in a reality, an Anay

    • wawa2172

      Jojo may be the biggest of joke of the decade? Let see after 2016 if you can still say the words. He is a frontrunner in presidential survey and he even leads PNoy in terms of popularity. Jojo is a hands on person and Noy has to rely on his K on what to do. Its Jojo and Mar in 2016 and Nognog won the first battle between the two. I will not vote for Jojo or Mar in 2016, I leave the space for the position the ballot as blank. Even for the VP position, I am sure Jinggoy will be it for UNA as candidate. Hindi rin ako boboto sa VP kung mag kataon. Mayron bang kandidato na hindi trapo or anak ang corrupt na politiko?

      • mabyrik

        Traditionally, the VP rates higher than the president for a simple reason that he is a do-nothing leader just waiting for the president to die. The president takes all the blame while the VP is just smiling by the side. That’s true during the time of Cory and still true up to this time. Noli’s popularity was so high, it made GMA insecure.
        A good manager is not necessarily a hand-on-manager. A good manager is someone who knows what, when and to whom to delegate jobs for a good manager relies on good, trusted people the responsibility of doing the dirty jobs while the manager does the decision making. Binay is relying on his popularity today hoping it will be sustained till the eve of 2016 election, and not thinking that Villar had the same experience before he plunged into oblivion after his defeat in 2010 election. At this time, Binay’s name is already being associated with corruption and yet, he is not a candidate. By 2016, he will be there, alongside GMA, in terms of corruption awareness. 

      • wawa2172

        Politics is simply dirty. Yes Jojo is being linked to corruption because its part of political plan that is make your political enemies so dirty especially if the media is on your side. Its to PNoy advantage because he is the darling of TV network ABS-CBN na may nationwide coverage. Naipaparating sa lahat ang gusto niyang sabihin para sa kasiraan nang kalaban niya. Jojo and Noy is part of the Philippine dirty politics. Come 2016 when Noy is to become a lameduck, lahat nang big funded government projects like 4P’s, road construction, AFP modernization at iba pa, ay may anomalyang kaakibat at its only during election ito lalabas. As of now Noy is Mr, Clean like Ping then, pero, may lalabas na libag pa rin pag dating nang halalan. Jojo is the target of character assassination and na perfect na ito nang yellow managers from the time of Marcos up to the present. They gain the experience from EDSA revolutions at ginagamit pa rin ito nang mga nasa goberno to secure power.

    • diamond_digger

       With due respect to what you stated above, Mabyrik, allow me to say that what Binay said was: “My being mayor of Makati is what made me the richest mayor in the whole country. Now, if you want me to become the richest man in the Philippines, vote for me as your president in 2016. And for me to make that dream of becoming the richest man in the country, you also would need to vote straight for the UNA candidates.” But if I can share my 2-cents-worth of advice to Binay, I would say that he should move over to Kenya and become the president there.

      Oh my gosh, it is just because one is a Pro RH that he or she is an anti-Christ. Wake up man, the RH law  is for responsible parenthood and health care especially among women. It is still your choice with regards to  sex, if you want it the natural way without the rubber then you are free as a bird to do it. The RH law does not prevent you in anyway to do it, hindi ka makukulong or mapaparusahan. Fear of God has nothing to do with RH law dahil hindi ito batas na pro-abortion. The law is pro-poor and pro-women whose choice and support is too limited without the RH law. I am a catholic and a christian that supported the RH bill and it did not in anyway diminished my belief in God.

    Supt. Ferdinand Daway may now be the most excited PNP officer to look forward to the presidency (GOD forbids) of Binay in 2016 probably thinking that his and his group’s decision of accepting the VP as their ‘miztah’ will take him so many steps closer to becoming the PNP Chief for Binay. This early, it is ‘sipsipan’ at its highest degree. This practice has got to stop. Politicians who do this should be shun by the electorates during election.

    Binay’s adoption by Class 1988 not election-related? Fraternal relationship? Who are these people kidding! How about political one-up-man-ship? There is no doubt as to the reasons or motives behind Binay’s adoption by the Class 1988. Binay is a presidentiable come 2016 whose chances of winning is rated as high. And should he get elected into office, it is also beyond doubt that members of Class 1988 stand to benefit from such because by that time, they will be eligible for key positions in the AFP and PNP. It is our position that if PMA classes cannot be restrained from adopting political personalities for obvious reasons, they should consider potential adoptees from among their contemporaries in politics. In short, mga ka-edad nila na mga pulitiko. Si Binay ay mahigit 70 na, samantalang ang mga Class 1988 ay nasa late 40s pa. Kaya, pakiusap lang mga PMA classes, please adopt as members mga kaedad ninyo!
