Super Typhoon: Philippines – could hit same areas ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda. Still too early to predict actual landfall sites but Samar areas now prominently mentioned as the most likely to be affected. Please take all the necessary precautions.
PNP Chief Alan Purisima suspended for 6 months by Ombudsman. The case stems from an allegedly anomalous contract for the delivery of gun licenses. He is also currently facing plunder charges for unexplained wealth. Concerned citizens have clamored for the relief from duty of the Philippine National Police chief but President Aquino has stood by his appointee. There is little that the Chief Executive can do now to prevent the suspension implementation order that was signed by the Ombudsman.
Department of Health Secretary Enrique Ona, on leave for the past 30 days, has resigned from his cabinet position. He was implicated in an alleged anomalous transaction involving pneumonia vaccine. Dr. Ona is widely believed to be honest thus raising the possibility that his ouster could be in preparation for the 2016 Presidential elections. The Administration Liberal Party already controls the Department of the Interior and Local Government in the hands of Mar Roxas, largely considered to be the Liberal Party candidate for President in 2016. The Department of Social Welfare and Development is under Dinky Soliman, a staunch ally of President Aquino. Health, DILG and the Social Welfare Departments are three of the executive departments closest to the people (voting population) and very much needed in terms of mass mobilization, distribution of dole-outs, medical missions and other election related activities. The current Acting Department of Health Secretaory, Dr. Janette Gari, is a Liberal Party member and former legislator (congresswoman from Iloilo). She (along with other legislators) is currently being investigated in relation to the NABCOR Fund Scam where former officers of the government agency accuse her of having received PHP 1 million in cash during the campaign period leading to the 2007 midterm elections where Garin ran for congresswoman. http://wp.me/p3QDQJ-L9
Liberal Party Top Town Mayor (head of the League of Town Mayors of the Philippines) involved in Napoles PHP 5 Billion Pork barrel Fund Scam. Untiunting lumalabas ang pagkasangkot ng mga mambabatas sa hanay ng Administration party (Liberal Party) sa mga pakana ni Janet Lim Napoles. Nakakahalata na rin ang mga mamamayan na kapag sa hanay ng Administrasyon nanggaling ang mga magnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan, matamlay ang kilos ng Department of Justice, Ombudsman at Sandiganbayan. In other words, mga mamababatas lang na kasama sa OPOSISYON ang masugid na iniimbistigahan, kinakasuhan at ikinukulong. Selective Justice is INJUSTICE. Lahat ng sangkot, DAPat managot.
Selective Justice: PHP 5 Billion NABCOR Fund Scam gathering dust *** Cases against Administration legislators ignored *** While PLUNDER charges were rushed against 3 opposition senators (Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla), the Department of Justice is dragging its feet on the PHP 5 Billion NABCOR Fund Scam involving cash for the 2007 midterm elections. At least 10 congressmen and congresswomen, then affiliated with the corrupt administration of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (but have now jumped over to the Liberal Party after Noynoy Aquino assumed the presidency in 2010) are alleged to have received MILLIONS of pesos for campaign money. The story has come back to life after President Aquino appointed Liberal Party member Janette Garin (former congresswomen of the first district of Iloilo) as Acting Secretary of the Department of Health when corruption charges were exposed in the health department vaccination program. Health Secretary Ona is still on forced leave and may not return to the DOH. Garin was mentioned by President Aquino as the next DOH Secretary during the 2013 midterm elections campaign period.
On the matter of the PHP 10 BILLION Napoles PDAF and DAP Pork Barrel Fund Scam, the Department of Justice is equally negligent in pursuing the second batch of senators implicated by the Napoles whistle blowers (led by Ben Hur Luy). Senators Bong Bong Marcos, Loren Legarda, Tito Sotto and Gringo Honasan have been pinpointed but have largely eluded public scrutiny and accountability because the investigation and prosecution arms of the government are sleeping on the job when Administration legislators are involved while quick on the draw regarding opposition stalwarts.

“Bongets” Bong Bong Marcos, “Dahon” Loren Legarda and “Bigote” Tito Sotto are next in line in the Janet Lim Napoles – Ben Hur Luy code book of the senators implicated in the PHP 10 Billion Pork Barrel Fund Scam. Move over Jailbirds “Tanda” JPE, “Sexy” Jinggoy and “Pogi” Bong. Is it going to be all for one, one for all with these three identified thieves or will the Aquino Administration protect Marcos whose wife is a law partner of Executive Secretary Ochoa while Legarda is an Administration senator leaving Sotto as the sole senator to be charged with PLUNDER in the long delayed second batch of senators? Senator Gringo Honasan, while also involved with Napoles NGOs put most of his PDAF with the corrupt PhilForest (probably with a smaller commission percentage because Napoles is reputed to be the highest paying pork barrel facilitator). http://wp.me/p3QDQJ-aV
