AMLC’s Evidence Against Binay is Bias with Julia Abad as Executive Director

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Under the AMLA, banking institutions are required to report all “suspicious transactions” to the Anti-Money Laundering Council, the agency which enforces the AMLA.   Banks and depositors have opined that this statutory obligation is legally objectionable because it compels the bank to make a judgment call against its own client despite the fiduciary (something built on trust) relationship between the bank and the client.

The AMLA also authorizes the AMLC to petition the Court of Appeals to issue a “freeze order” against a bank account used in illegal activities.   A freeze order has the effect of putting the money beyond the reach of the account holder.

AMLC evidence against Binay may have been masterminded by Drilon, Abad and Aquino.

AMLA that was authorized by AMLC to freeze the bank accounts of V.P. Binay’s family  is, based on the reasons for its enactment, can be an effective weapon against organized crime and large-scale corruption – there is nothing to stop its use against the political opposition and other perceived enemies of the state. Analyze this:

Ultimately the allegations of corruptions against the Binay family is triggered by VP Binay being a strong contender for president in May 2016, and that President Benigno Aquino III is not exactly very fond of his vice president, are matters which have been downplayed by Malacañang.  Knowing now the functions of these bodies, questionable events arised:

Question Number One: – Binay, who denies having violated the AMLA, is at the receiving end of the AMLC’s attention.

Question Number Two: Mohagher Iqbal, the main man of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the ongoing peace negotiations between the Philippine government and the MILF, who admitted to the Senate that he violated the AMLA by using a false name in his numerous bank accounts, remains untouched by the authorities.

The Big Question is: Why the special preferential treatment accorded to Iqbal (or whatever his real name is) is a clear indicator that all is not fair and equal in the government’s handling of AMLA cases.   The Pnoy administration are therefor nice to their allies and tough to their enemies!

No wonder that the AMLC evidence were not accepted by the court and classified as hearsays!

Liberal Tried to Tint Binay’s Legacy by Pena Cancelling Support to Makati’s Sister Provinces Nationwide

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
In a desperate effort to discredit VP Jejomar Binay’s name for the 2016 election, Makati residents disclosed that the city is in fact subsidizing more than 256 LGUs in various provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This was uncovered during the first few days of acting Mayor Kid Pena’s stay in the Mayor’s office – when he cancelled the contracts with these LGUs. Makati residents are disgusted with the bad move of the acting Mayor Pena. Most swears that he will never be Makati’s mayor ever.

This discovery clearly indicates that VP Jejomar Binay never boasts with his work in helping the  poor that constitutes majority of the masses. This is the very reason that the 30-year legacy of the Binays is too difficult to destroy or erased – cause support in educational, healthcare and livelihood will always stay in the hearts of the beneficiaries.

The city government of Makati has been establishing ties with local governments from the time that Vice President Binay was the Mayor to foster sharing of best practices and economic and social assistance with each other.

Makati offers assistance that would enhance the literacy rate of students from sister LGUs, such as computer units and books. Mayor Binay has announced that qualified students from sister LGUs will be given scholarship at the Makati Science High School upon the completion of its new building. He said that qualified students will also be given a stipend and accommodation inside the school campus.

“Constituents of our sister LGUs can also avail of medical services offered by Ospital ng Makati,” – these were the agreements before until Pena took over against the people’s will!

Don’t Let Media Propaganda Ruin the Country Again

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
What is Media Propaganda?
Media propaganda is when the media is being used as political and social means to influence people’s attitudes and beliefs. The modern propaganda uses all the media available to spread its message, including: press, radio, television, film, computers, fax machines, posters, meetings, door-to-door canvassing, handbills, buttons, billboards, speeches, flags, street names, monuments, coins, stamps, books, plays, comic strips, poetry, music, sporting events, cultural events, company reports, libraries, awards and prizes.

Media Strategy
Media people swear before they become one to tell the truth and nothing but the truth – so creative writing or broadcasting is needed to be able to keep that promise or to avoid libel suits. However, the media cannot survive if there’s no business supporting their programs – and we all know that controversy sells a lot – thereby, the birth of provocative titles which are often misleading that results to total misunderstanding by the general public.

Media Propaganda Users
It is difficult for media entities to refuse large incomes because obviously, money is badly needed to be able to sustain their operation expenses. So, in this regard political giants surely can have access to this strategy to destroy their opponents. This is not about publishing false reports. This is normally involves broadcasting half-truth stories. Sometimes both sides of the stories are not covered. The use of “allegedly” is so obvious if you only pay attention to it – which means that the detail of the story is a hearsay by whoever is being interviewed. No concrete or hard evidence at all.

Media Propaganda Brain
In the Philippines, the Marcos regime that governed Philippines to become the most successful economy in Asia to the envy of other Asian countries was toppled because of Ninoy Aquino’s betrayal to his fraternity brother then the late President Ferdinand Marcos – who was once his financial supporter according to an insider’s blog.  This article although unfounded contained details of the troubled marriage of Cory and Ninoy contrary to the image that they wanted to create for the family through Ninoy’s media connections being a media man himself. The sour relationship even lasted until Ninoy was assassinated eventually in 1983.

Troubling Facts
It is evident that two Aquino’s already served as Presidents but the mastermind of the assassination is still not known. Only 16 were convicted and 20 were acquitted as reported.  Rumors had it that it can be Cory’s relatives contrary to the media propaganda that it was Ferdinand Marcos who was allegedly threatened that Ninoy Aquino would replace him as President because of his popularity triggered by media propaganda. It was however verified that Ninoy Aquino was already terminally ill or literally dying when he decided to come back to the Philippines. In fact he was in exile for three years in the U.S. for medical treatment after a heart attack.

Again, contrary to media propaganda that he was willing to die to be able to serve Filipinos. The “Filipinos are worth dying for” statement became popular since then.

Ninoy’s Betrayal
It was published in various media that Ninoy vowed to drop Sabah claim in pledge to get support from Malaysia in ousting Marcos.

Ninoy Aquino’s highly publicized accusations against Marcos paved the way to the diminishing reputation of President Marcos.

Was the assassination drama used and elaborated by the media for the Aquino’s to gain powered backed by their foreign supporters? Are they selling the land to the Malaysians? That would actually explain the President’s cold actions in helping Sultan Jamalul Kiram’s men in getting back Sabah through a suicide mission.  He is also very hesitant to fast track the Bangsamoro Law to be passed before his term expires in 2016.
Result of Aquino Governance

The present Aquino administration is making sure to install a President from their own Liberal Party to avoid being punished for their mismanagement as follow to name a few:

Fallen SAF 44 in Mamasapano
Yolanda Disaster Response
Shortage of Schools
Defective MRTs
Selective Justice
Failing Economy
Incompetent Appointees
Palpak na tuwid na daan

Media Propaganda Strikes Again
Now that the 2016 Presidential election is fast approaching, most political threats are either already in jail for alleged corruption charges or in the process of giving them a hard time and ruining their reputation – which is the same media propaganda strategy that Ninoy Aquino used against Ferdinand Marcos in the past. The following are some examples:

Chief Justice Renato Corona
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
Senator Bong Revilla
Senator Jinggoy Estrada
Vice President Jejomar Binay
Mayor Junjun Binay 

Makati Chaos Can Slow Down Economy
The continued attack by the Liberal party of President Ninoy against the Binays has a huge impact in the Philippine economy. Makati being the center of commerce in the Philippines has lost huge turnovers in a daily basis. Businesses either interrupted or disrupted by the chaotic situation claims to have suffer substantial losses as interviewed by CNN Philippines.
Special Treatment
The absence of the Binays in the public service arena is a great loss to the general public because only this family has a proven track record in improving the lives of their constituents through quality service facilities like well equipped schools, better healthcare, supported livelihood and other social benefits. This is the only area in the Philippines where public services are quick and efficient.
Liberal Magnanakaw

Public Service Betrayal
It is very clear that the Pnoy administration is only interested in safeguarding their Liberal political party – that’s why they wanted Kid Pena to govern Makati who is the Vice Mayor than Mayor Binay. Also, as a President who is noted not to have an economic skill, he would not care less if the Philippine economy slows down with the deteriorating income from the central commercial district. There are just too many betrayal incidents done by the ruling President from the Sabah incident to the Makati interference.

So what should the public do?

Let’s topple the Liberal Regime by to electing Vice President Jejomar Binay as our unifying president during the 2016 Presidential election! Never let media propaganda ruin our lives this time.
Binay's Promise

The poor must be the priority for the next Philippine President in 2016

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Aquino Administration who vowed to take the straight path towards progress and to diminish the ancient corruption system of government in the Philippines is now bidding farewell with the upcoming 2016 national election. Who do you think should be the next Philippine President?

 

Pledging to take care of the economy by encouraging foreign investments and further operations by the country’ s rich and famous, the outgoing administration claimed their success on their efforts – hoping that the alleged growth will reach the poorest of the poor as time goes by and nothing is wrong with that. Only, even the government itself acknowledged that there are still more things to be done.

Now, since the Pnoy administration is almost over, the plight of the masses which constituted to being the largest segment of the Filipino people who are evidently poor is left to the voters’ hands. Will they choose a President from the Liberal party who would more or less adapt the same strategy as the Aquino administration or choose Vice President Jejomar Binay whose campaign efforts are always geared to take care of the poor since the beginning of his time in politics? Not to mention being poor himself who managed to become a human rights lawyer through hard work.

 

Those who witnessed how poor people live in the Philippines can attest to the urgency of their much needed rehabilitation because people are dying in the streets everyday. This should be the utmost concern of any Presidential candidate at this point in time. The rich can still improve their businesses with or without the government’s help. Also, the peace and order situation of the country can be controlled when people are not hungry.

So, will you be choosing a President for the welfare of the poor despite allegations of corruption? Well, as human nature dictates, when you want to destroy a good politician – you can just accuse him of corruption and his image can easily turn from white to black. Are Filipinos smart enough not to let this happen?

I think it’s about time to prioritize the ones at the bottom because the present administration already did whatever they can to better the interests of the ones from the top – and hopefully, this would narrow down the gap between rich and poor.

 

Who would you vote for in 2016 Presidential race?

NSO is now PSA

In a very sunny morning, my adopted child was so excited to get enrolled in the nearby school – only to be rejected because her birth certificate is not issued by  NSO but by PSA. I was irritated so, we tried to find ways to verify and get hold of Raul Ludovice from PSA.

He explained that Philippine Statistics Authority or PSA is the new name of NSO or National Statistics Office so, we hurried back to the school to explain this – only to find confused parents and teachers alike.

So, please be informed and share this information to who might need this.
