The prosecution in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona must be reminded of one thing: Pnoy IS NOT EXEMPTED from counter-attacks by the Chief Justice.
The prosecution said
’s call on Pnoy to stay clear of the impeachment proceedings and challenge to the Chief Executive to prove his mental capability to govern the country was par tof the defense’s diversionary tactics. Corona
NO DICTIONARY IS NEEDED for anyone to understand that the call to stay clear is PART AND PARCEL of the impeachment trial and DEFINITELY NOT a different issue as a diversion.
Questions on Pnoy’s mental health had been raised even when he was still campaigning for President. But NO PROOF of him being 100 percent normal has ever been presented.
Only an INSANE individual would find nothing wrong in a mentally sick president of the country.
One of the favorite lines of the prosecution, and even Malacanang, is if
has nothing to hide, then he should reveal everything being asked of him. Corona
So following that line of thinking, if Pnoy is mentally normal and has no hidden agenda behind his DIRECT AND PERSONAL SUPPORT to the prosecution, then they should not raise hell over
’s attacks against the President. Corona
Unless the prosecution can present a law which says the President is UNCONDITIONALLY EXEMPTED from criticisms or counter-moves by the people whose character he prejudges and assassinates.
Prosecution spokesman Juan Edgardo Angara called on the public not to take their focus off
I agree 1001 percent. So that the public will CLEARLY SEE FOR THEMSELVES that
’s turn to present his evidence, which is his CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, has not yet come but he is being PREJUDGED ALREADY by Pnoy and the prosecution. Corona
Like what prosecution spokesman Marikina Rep. Miro Quimbo did when he said
’s actuations would be more reason for the public to call for his resignation. Corona
The public is NOT STUPID Mr. Quimbo. Even a jeepney driver will clearly see and understand that Pnoy has been PERSONALLY attacking
non-stop so the Chief Justice is just striking back. Corona
Anybody in his right mind WILL NEVER allow his or her reputation to be TOTALLY RIPPED APART by round-the-clock beatings from all sides without a fight.
And believe me, the people will surely not find this response enough for condemnation or banishment.
Quimbo added that
should just let his lawyers do the talking. Then you had better tell that too to Pnoy, Mr. Quimbo. You should ask him to just leave the proceedings to the prosecution and stop hitting Corona . Corona
If you can’t tell that to Pnoy, then shut up.
It will be GROSSLY UNFAIR for
if the President can lambast him with anything but he can’t or shouldn’t strike back, personally. Masyado naman kayong sinusuwerte kung ganoon ang laban. Corona
Bottom line, whether or not the prosecution likes it,
has the RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS and a FAIR FIGHT! It’s the law. Even if they’re lawmakers, and Pnoy is the President, they’re NOT EXEMPTED from following the law. Corona
We are in a democracy, not in a DICTATORSHIP or ONE-MAN RULE.

SIX DANGEROUS SIGNS FROM PNOY!
PRIMO CRISOSTOMO of
Farmville, Virginia, USA
Pnoy mismo is dangerous because he does NOT respect the RULE OF LAW... and he thinks he’s ABOVE THE LAW.
With all his actuations and pronouncements, Aquino is at a loss on what to do with all the mounting problems that beset our country, which are all his own doings. Now, he needs scapegoats to blame to save his face from the people because of our ailing economy, corrupt government and HUNGRY FILIPINOS!
Favorite scapegoats: ex-PGMA and CJ Corona. Baka si VP Binay na susunod.
I really enjoyed reading, my friend. Great article. You're right, indeed it is STUPIDITY to say or insist that
is the stumbling block to government reforms. Corona , sa issue na ito, lawakan natin ang pag-iisip at pagintindi sa mga pangyayari at lalong iluhod sa Diyos. I sincerely hope and pray that Pnoy will soon realize that he is the president of this nation and should not allow his “PRIDE” to get in the way. Sana

BERTENI CAUSING of
Why make an issue of Pnoy’s supposed incompetence when it is
’s incompetence which is at issue? The Filipinos will be the losers if there are those who insist on acquitting Corona just because in their eyes, Pnoy also committed wrongdoings, that Pnoy is a hypocrite, that the interest of Pnoy is vengeance over the Hacienda Luisita ruling. What is important is look at the evidence offered against Corona and look at the defense in evidence. Do not look at Pnoy. Corona
Kakaiba ano? Masyadong VINDICTIVE. Palaaway! Bratty!
Before, Penoy blamed PGMA. Now, he blames CJ Corona! Penoy should admit na he is not qualified talaga to be the president and then resign before magkaroon ng division sa mga tao at tuluyan ng magkagulo sa bansa natin!
The government is of the people, for the people, and by the people. Therefore, when the people call for
to strip off his crown, he must be stripped off his crown. Corona
TIBONG CAGAYANO of Lal-lo, Cagayan
Well said, Boyet! Ngayon pa lang, may excuse na si Pnoy. Kinukundisyon na niya ang isipan ng mga tao na si CJ Corona ang dahilan kaya hindi niya maipatupad ang kanyang mga programa (kung meron!). Assured na siyang malalagay sa mga pahina ng ating history book, ang kauna-unahang nakaupong PRESIDENTE NA NAG-UUDYOK NG CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE LABAN SA GOBYERNO NA KANYA MISMONG PINANGANGASIWAAN.

IF it's in the pursuit of uncovering the bank leak, fine. If it is to fish for more evidence against the CJ, then it is illegal. Miriam already made this clear with complete details, yet today, again, they muddled the issue. Hirap talaga pag absent si Miriam. When the cat is away, the lapdogs will play.

No matter how much he denies it, it is still very obvious that he is acting like a prosecutor. This guy is confused about his duty, whether he is a judge or a prosecutor.

Am not so sure yet but something’s fishy here.

Well, just subpoena the bank's records. The bank is liable no matter what, whether it is fake or not. Someone paid the bank to lie or perhaps to provide prosecutors a copy with no signature. Is there a videocam in ever nook and wall of the bank? I smell a rat.. you can not call a copy of the bank fake especially if the document is a duplicate. Only the signature is missing. That is not a fake document.
ANNE NACIONALES of
Drilon is biased, ever since.
TIMOTHY CHRISTIAN TE of
Well, if there are signatures on the original and there aren't signatures on the copy, then it's not a true copy at all. How can a photocopy machine not copy something that was there to begin with? And how about the bank president saying that they have a SIMILAR form, but not the exact same form? How can they have a "copy" of a form that doesn't exist? In the words of the prosecution's own witness, the form is a fake.

BANAL’S ADMISSION FULL OF HOLES!
I can foresee from the danger signs: The gradual downfall of the Aquino Administration, if President Aquino wouldn't stop in his active participation in the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Corona.
PSBANK MANAGER SAYS
RECORDS FAKE! CORONA
DELMAR TACLIBON of Bacoor,
Only a competent expert can say so with authority. Senator Jinggoy Estrada opined otherwise in yesterday's hearing.

What is actually fake is the annex docs attached to the request by the prosecutors for the subpoena of CJ’s bank accounts, not the docs given by the PSBank.
