LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Do not those who plot evil go astray?” (Proverbs 14:22, the Holy Bible).

PNOY BETRAYED PUBLIC TRUST OVER DAP: From CBCP News, the online newspaper of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines: “The Church People’s Alliance Against Pork Barrel (CPAAPB), an ecumenical group composed of Catholic and Protestant anti-corruption campaigners, believes President Benigno S. Aquino III (PNoy) has betrayed the trust of the people.

“ `PNoy’s unbending defense of the DAP lays bare his disregard both for the Philippine Constitution with its concomitant checks-and-balances of power and decision-making as well as his responsibility to safeguard the national treasury for the benefit of the most vulnerable in our society,’ CPAAPB convenor Fr. Ben Alforque, MSC, declared.

“The unfolding realities of `patronage politics’ and `pork barrel plunder’ in our nation, Alforque observed, reveal a tip of the iceberg of graft and corruption long covered up by the Aquino administration…”

PNOY, CHARTER VIOLATOR: The CBCP News also said: “In a statement, CPAAPB said PNoy’s attempts to defend the impounding of allocated budgets, deceptively re-naming them as savings, and illegally dispensing them at his own discretion, including his millions’ worth in gifts to senators six months after the Corona impeachment, through his Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), cannot overcome his serious betrayal of public trust.

“PNoy and all those who participated in these acts, the group stressed, must be held accountable. The alliance pointed out that the President consciously violated the Constitution and betrayed the public with corruption and political patronage.

According to CPAAPB, PNoy has gravely tarnished his moral reputation, and has yet to express repentance.

“Ironically, the group noted, PNoy has presented himself as a `stalwart of righteousness and as an avenger against corruption but has now been unmasked as a blatant, conscious and intentional violator of the highest law of the land: the Philippine Constitution…”

INGRATES OVER DAP? Is this story true? Somebody told me that right after the Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional President Aquino’s “disbursement acceleration program” or DAP, a top official in Malacanang called up some of his friends and asked why they did not support Aquino in this issue. The top official was told that supporting DAP was really untenable, and that there was no way they could have supported the DAP. The official allegedly uttered, “ingrates”!

WAR OF COLORS IN RP: There is a war of colors going on right now. President Aquino started it by calling on his supporters to wear yellow ribbons and dresses. Then, his critics and political foes who want him impeached are asking the public to wear peach-colored dresses. Justices, judges, and court employees on the other hand are wearing black, to protest Aquino’s tirades against the judiciary. Who do you think will prevail?

AKSIYON DEMOKRATIKO RESURRECTS! Here is an announcement from Aksiyon Demokratiko, the party founded by the late Sen. Raul S. Roco: “Aksiyon Demokratiko is cordially inviting you to attend its National Conference to be held at Midex Events Place, Tomas Morato, Quezon City, on July 24, 2014, from 9 a.m. onwards. This will be a whole day event and will be followed by a fellowship… we will discuss party matters relevant to 2016 elections and political mapping update. The Action for Change Continues!”
