QC gov’t arrests, raps 15 persons who tried to get inside padlocked compound - Friday, 13 December 2013
By now, aides of Noynoy, especially his spokesmen who are into propaganda politics and image building of their boss, must have realized that one can’t keep on selling to the public, a bad product, no matter how much it is being disguised, to hide the truth.
And by now too, his new spokesman, Herminio “Sonny” Coloma, should also realize that he can’t sell Noynoy to the public and that the type of governance by propaganda hardly works, even if their yellow media continue trying to make Noynoy look good.
The yellow survey research firms that largely have manipulated their surveys to publicly project Noynoy as a still popular president, should by now also realize that their credibility is completely shot, as their quarterly surveys do not reflect the true sentiments of the Filipinos, especially since the respondents are pre-determined.
This truth must have struck one of Noynoy’s propagandists, Ricky Carandang, who used to be a credible anchor man on TV until he, even as a media anchor then, was already working as Noynoy and the Liberal Party propagandist during the 2010 presidential campaign even as he was still wearing the media hat.
He made things worse for himself when he joined the Noynoy administration as one of three propagandists.
To be fair, however, it is not just his joining the Noynoy team that ruined him, but that he had chosen a poor product to sell to the public.
It could have been an easy task at the start for Carandang, as there were then a lot of Filipinos who believed in Noynoy, thinking that he was honest, and incorruptible; a reformist, a non-traditional politician, a human rights protector and freedom of information and of the press upholder, who will moreover bring about changes in the country and the nation.
That was how he, his Liberal Party (LP) allies and his other propagandists projected him, despite the fact that it was already obvious even then that he had neither leadership qualities nor experience, nor the background to become an effective president.
Worse, even during the 2010 presidential campaign, it was already documented that a psychological evaluation of Noynoy as a college student in Ateneo, conducted by Jesuit Jaime Bulatao, which tests showed his vindictive nature, as well as mood swings and despondency.
As the psychological-psychiatric evaluation stated as symptoms: “The patient (Noynoy) has complained of hostility, anger and being openly punitive. He also complains of fatigue, coated tongue, disturbed and unrefreshing sleep and poor appetite and that Noynoy has a “marked difficulty in thinking,” along with saying that speech-wise, Noynoy is “pompous,” whose knowledge has been found to be “very little, very shallow and all preoccupied with self,” apart from Noynoy having a “short attention span, given to enthusiasm and easily swayed by new impressions.”
On Noynoy’s “judgment and insight,” the Bulatao statement said the patient (Noynoy) has “impaired insights as well as superficial judgment, always ready with an excuse when asked about his failures in life.”
Bulatao also describes Noynoy as suffering from depression and melancholia, adding that “the patient is “morose, gloomily irritable and sensitive to advice or criticism.”
Interestingly, of Noynoy, Bulatao says: “He looks to be in politics one day, saying that ‘politics is the road to power.’ He wants the power one day, not so much to help others, but to be able to heap a measure of revenge on the people who had imprisoned his father, troubled his family, and one who made his life ‘a living hell’.”
The yellow media and the yellow supporters of Noynoy, including Carandang and Lacierda, passed off this Bulatao psychiatric and psychological evaluation as a fake, preempting this genuine evaluation by coming up with a clearly faked pyschological and psychiatric evaluation, hatched up by the Lopez-ABS-CBN yellows.
Yet it should be remembered that even as this Bulatao evaluation of Noynoy was done decades and decades ago, all of those descriptions of Bulatao on Noynoy show up in every aspect of his presidency and can hardly be called a faked psychological and psychiatric evaluation because Noynoy has been manifesting all these as president.
Three-and-half years into the highest seat in Malacañang, it is evident that he does not like criticisms, as he has displayed this many times over, he does not like to hear any “bad” news, as he himself has admitted, as well as his refusal to see himself and be seen as a failure, preferring to blame others for his failures.
Doesn’t that sound just like Noynoy, whose vindictiveness and thirst for revenge and his refusal to take the blame for his failures, is boundless?
But he was and still is being sold by his propagandists and even they, as well as Carandang, knew that their propaganda no longer works for their principal.
Noynoy has been truly unmasked, especially after the super typhoon “Yolanda,” as he showed himself to be president who didn’t even care about the victims of Yolanda, intent only on wreaking vengeance on a political foe.
Still, that should not be surprising, considering what Bulatao said of Noynoy as patient: “He wants the power one day, not so much to help others, but to be able to heap a measure of revenge.”
God help the Filipino nation that made him president, and through PCOS’ fraudulent means too, because the nation has a psychiatrically and psychologically impaired president.

In Bangkok, even when there is clearly a democratic government led by now caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, due to her call for a snap election, the Thai elite demonstrators, led by one who is not even part of the government, Suthep Thaugsuban, wants her, and the entire relatives of the Shinawatras out of the country, now giving her 24 hours to step down from office and jail her for treason.
Treason, to him, an unelected protester, has been committed by her because she does follow his, and his elite group’s order to leave town and no longer be in politics.
What Suthep and his elite protesters want is for an unelected and appointed government, ostensibly led by him, and his elitists. Obviously, they cannot win in an election, which is why they call for an appointed government.
What is evident is that Suthep believes in neither the Thai Constitution nor in democracy. As they and their party can’t win the majority seat in a parliamentary election, they want to take over the reins of government through highly undemocratic means.
The Filipino elite protesters are really no different from this Thai elite mob. When they do not like the democratically elected president, they take undemocratic steps to oust him, But when they like their presidential candidate to win, they don’t mind it even if electoral fraud is being committed to ensure that their presidential bet wins the race, by hook and by crook.
And worse, the country’s Supreme Court chief justice and his then sidekick who later also become chief justice, were even active participants in ensuring the elected president’s ouster with an inexistent “constructive resignation” ruling that moreover was based on the news clipping of an unauthenticated diary that was written by a third person which was even introduced by the court itself, and not by either party in court.
In much the same way, the Filipino elite and their media, ignored the election fraud of 2004, even as other newspapers, such as The Tribune, daily reported on the then ongoing electoral fraud, participated in by the military generals, along with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in 2004.
Of this electoral fraud, the media and government officials were aware, but killed these stories, and all because they, as one official then said, “Better to cheat than to have ( then opposition presidential bet) FPJ, in Malacañang.
Noynoy was one of them, as well as his mother, Cory Aquino. Yet even as they were aware of the electoral fraud, these very same groups hypocritically feigned surprise and anger at the electoral fraud committed, two years after the fraud occurred, and after deliberately killing these stories in 2004.
In the same manner, there was clearly in the 2010 polls, automated fraud that was just as clearly a connivance among the then Comelec, its precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines and the interfering American group. Yes, Virginia, the “covert” Americans were involved in making certain that their bet whom they know would be their puppet in the country would win. Recall that then US ambassador, Harry Thomas, went to congratulate Noynoy even before the Comelec count was finished and even when he was not even proclaimed president.
Then too, the Comelec count merely kept on with the automatic count, without even letting the public know from which precincts the votes came. Worse, there are still some 8 million unaccounted votes to this day. Yet there were no cries of fraud from the elite and the yellows.
But as the elite wanted Noynoy, as did the Americans and the Comelec, the elite, who claim to love democracy and to fight for it, rejoiced at Noynoy’s fraudulent victory simply because they didn’t want former President Joseph Estrada to win the top political post.
The same type of PCOS fraud and even worse, since the 2013 fraud had a clear 60-30-10 national vote pattern in every province, every municipality and city, along with every region, which is a mathematical vote improbability.
Yet the administration senators who are now in the Senate majority, aren’t likely to probe this 2010 fraud, because they know that many of them won through cheating.
But in time, they too, will be unmasked, as Noynoy is being unmasked.
They don’t deserve their elective seats, having obtained them fraudulently.
Doing the media rounds yesterday, Mar Roxas, reacting to Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez’s statements before the Senate, claimed that it has been Romualdez who was engaging in politics at its worst by accusing him and Noynoy of not moving to help the Taclobanons in their hour of need.
But in truth, even as Mar claims that Romualdez is twisting the facts, he just isn’t credible, because the facts, supporting the Tacloban mayor’s statements, can be easily verified, as footage and commentaries from the CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and his TV team, as well those from other foreign journalists, have proven Romualdez’s statements. Did not the nation see and hear Cooper saying that there is no presence of the national government, days after the super storm hit the Visayas, Tacloban in particular? How can this now be denied by Mar and Noy?
That politics was prioritized by Noynoy and of course Mar, and yes, Dinky Soliman and Defense Chief Voltaire Gazmin, was evident in the fact that even as Noynoy and Mar were in Tacloban holding a meeting with local officials and businessmen, there was absolutely no compassion, no sensitivity, no helping hand from Noynoy. All these insensitivity, ineptitude and his usual brand of vindictiveness were there for all to see. Recall when a trader whose store was looted, told Noynoy that he was shot at by one of the looters, Noynoy, the unfeeling, the vindictive, the uncaring, actually shot back by saying, “Well, you’re not dead, are you?”
Even Christiane Amanpour’s interview with Noynoy spoke of the national government not being around and compared Noynoy’s inept handling of the crisis to that of the Bush legacy after Katrina.
At that time, stores were already looted, and chaos ruled, and it was the businessmen who had asked for protection and help from the national government. That was two days after the super typhoon hit.
How then can Mar now claim that the national government was already there ready with the additional police force, when such footage verifies the claim of Romualdez?
Roxas also had to admit that he did ask Romualdez for a letter and that he did say that it was needed because of the sensitive situation of Romualdez being the mayor, while Aquino is president.
If that is not letting partisan politics into the aid and relief being sought by Romualdez, what else then can be called? That is not Romualdez twisting facts. It is Mar who is twisting the facts, to save his, and Noynoy’s vindictive skin.
While Mar confirmed that he had asked the mayor to write a letter about asking for the national government’s help, which Romualdez rejected since it could be construed as his having resigned from office and giving up control of the city, Mar’s explanation was that Noynoy was just being careful about being seen as taking over Tacloban when the mayor is a known political enemy of the President.
“This is why I said to (the mayor). ‘You have to understand. You are a Romualdez and the President is an Aquino.’ He is being very careful in just taking over because he does not want anything to be misconstrued. What I said was we are just being careful on this matter,” Mar was quoted as saying in interviews.
That’s BS and a lot of Filipinos know it is. Did Mar and Noynoy ask other local officials whose districts and provinces were also reeling from the super typhoon the same thing? Absolutely not. In fact, in one district where Noynoy and his aides, including Mar, had their LP ally, Noynoy was even praising the local executives, saying that they had prepared well, since the deaths were minimal.
Mar condemned politics being played in such situations, saying such politics was at its worst, and the kind of politics that makes one retch.
Excuse me while I retch at Mar’s explanations and spins. It is he and the Noynoy administration that causes one to vomit because the vindictive politics they play, and in such a crisis, is the worst kind of Liberal Party politics, combined with the vindictiveness of Noynoy, merely because he is now in power in Malacañang and the Romualdezes who are Marcoses’ kin, therefore must be made to pay.
Noynoy can be the president of the yellows, but he does not deserve to be the president of the non-yellow nation.
