(BY: ATTY. BATAS MAURICIO) LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young…” (Deuteronomy 28:49-50, the Holy Bible).
PNOY MUM ON ANNEXATIONS OF RP TERRITORIY: Former Interior and Local Government Secretary Rafael Alunan III has an interesting post in the social networking site Facebook, which bewails the annexation of various parts of the Philippines by other countries with the Aquino government doing nothing. Here is his post:
“Just to see what we, as an archipelagic state, are facing: To the west, the Chinese are moving heaven and earth to have administrative and operational control of the West Philippine Sea.
“To the south, with the passage of the Comprehensive Agreement on BangsaMoro (CAB) and with the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) being pushed by the PNoy administration not later than June 2015, we will virtually cede administrative and operational difficulty over the Sulu and Celebes Seas to Malaysia through the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, or MILF.
“DO NOT ELECT ANYONE LINKED TO PNOY GOV’T”: “To the north, we have Taiwan, a province of China, where the Babuyan Sea is being penetrated at will especially since our Coast Guard doesn’t get any backing from this PNoy administration when it enforces the law.
“The realization that our maritime and territorial integrity has been under threat that escalated beyond belief during this administration’s tenure, is cause for extreme concern and pro-action by the Filipino people, Muslim and non-Muslim to be exact.
“Rapidly build a strong Coast Guard and Navy! No to BBL! Strike down the CAB as unconstitutional! Denounce China and Malaysia before the United Nations as nations conducting armed aggression against the Philippines. Do not re-elect anyone that is linked to this administration which has severely compromised the national interest!”
MORALES & DOUBLE STANDARD AT OMBUDSMAN: Sorry but I really could not buy the yarn being spun by the Ombudsman, under Conchita Carpio Morales, that it was merely enforcing the law when it suspended Makati Mayor Jejomar Irwin Junjun Binay, son of Vice President and 2016 presidential frontrunner Jojo Binay, the most formidable opponent of Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas.
How can the Ombudsman under Morales truthfully say that it is merely enforcing the law when, quite clearly, it was applying a double standard of justice in the case of Junjun—one standard for him as an opponent of the Aquino government, and one standard for the allies of President Aquino and Mar Roxas? Has Morales indicted and suspended the allies of the men who appointed her Ombudsman?
Morales cannot deny that in the Supreme Court decision striking down the pork barrel allocations for politicians many of whom belong to the party of the President, there was a directive for an investigation and prosecution of all government officials and private persons “for possible criminal offenses related to the irregular, improper and/or unlawful disbursement/utilization of funds under the pork barrel system…” Did Morales obey the Supreme Court?
