KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…” (Ephesians 5:20, the Holy Bible).

THEFT AGAINST RUSSIAN TOURISTS MUSTBE PROBED WELL: Police investigators in San Juan, La Union must carefully look into the complaint that two Russian tourists were allegedly robbed of their expensive personal belongings, inside their rented room yet in Bgy.

Urbiztondo. If it was true that thieves broke into their room and carted away their valuables, the criminals must be immediately arrested, and their loot returned to the owners.

Truly, the descent to sinfulness and petty criminality of our people is now truly a source of national shame. On the other hand, if this accusation is not true, or was just made up by the tourists for one reason or another, they must be held accountable for defamation by the owner of the resort in La Union. Indeed, no tourist would dare come to the country and to that resort anymore after this!

PEOPLE POWER GARBAGE, FEBRUARY 25, 2018: Did I hear it right that it was “people power revolution” that the critics of President Duterte tried to commemorate last Sunday, February 25, 2018?

I ask because, to me, that gathering actually represented a big insult to the concept of true people’s movements, whose rightful intentions should be the welfare of the people and of the environment.

Think about this: Duterte’s critics gathered at the EDSA People Power monument just for a few hours on Sunday but they somehow managed to cough up tons and tons of trash and garbage, which now require cleaning for at least two days. Are these the people who claim that they are pro-people, pro-God and pro-environment? The truth, if you ask me, is that, these people are truly the trash or garbage of Philippine society who must be washed down the drain!

LESSON OF EDSA 1986: PERSONAL AND FAMILY INTERESTS ARE HIGHER THAN THE PEOPLE’S INTERESTS: Again, if I were to be asked, the true lesson of EDSA 1986 is truly a simple one: personal and family interests are always put above the greater interest of our countrymen by people who become, by some quirk of treacherous fate, leaders of the Filipino nation. Just take a close look at the Constitution that EDSA 1986 gave birth to, for instance.

Was it not a fact that the promised agrarian reform in that Charter was nothing but a fake reform? Was it not true that big estates, like the Hacienda Luisita landholding belonging to the family of Corazon and Noynoy Aquino, were exempted from land reform? And, was it not a fact also that the alleged ban in that Charter against political dynasties was similarly a fake prohibition because, in reality, there was no such ban in that Constitution?

-ooo-

NOYNOY SHOULD BE THE ONE TO CLOSE HIS MOUTH: According to the Book of the Law, those who engage in wrongdoing or abuse against their fellow men insist on living their lives in darkness to prevent others from becoming aware of their misdeeds. This was how I viewed former President Noynoy Aquino’s appearance at the House of Representatives on Monday, February 26, 2018, on the issue of Dengvaxia.

He bemoaned his desire for a “loud forensic expert” to stop public discussions of the ill-effects of Dengvaxia of Sanofi (a French pharmaceutical firm), allegedly because the expert was not qualified to talk about the matter. Well, is it not true that the expert had been talking merely about his findings in his examinations?

It is Noynoy who should stop opening his lips, for he is not an expert in anyway on the dangers of Dengvaxia.

PUBLIC APOLOGY FOR FOODSPHERE, INC.: I am confirming what I posted in my social networking accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) about the public apology in favor of CDO Foodsphere, Inc.

In the 14 years that I was locked in various legal battles with it in connection with the 50 libel cases or so that CDO filed against me, I saw that this experience I underwent with them was actually used by God for a beneficial purpose.

The truth was that, during all the times that I tangled with CDO, it was then that the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church (or the Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo, AND KNK)—a fast-growing Christian Church preaching that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—was fully established.

From hindsight, I now believe that if I did not encounter this problem with CDO, AND KNK would not be put up and then flourish. Thank God in the Name of Jesus, and thank you, CDO Foodsphere, Inc.
