There’s something more than meets the eye in Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI) pronouncement that it will no longer pursue its motion for the inhibition of Chief Justice Renato Corona in the case for the distribution of the hacienda’s land to farmer-beneficiaries.
They had wanted
out of the deliberations on the case
FOR MONTHS. The SUDDEN change of heart is simply too UNREALISTIS to be a
decision out of a long and careful study. Corona
HLI lawyer Antonio Ligon justified the move in a story in the ABS-CBN website by saying: “Nag-iisa lang naman siya (
). Hindi naman siya
lang ang Supreme Court.” Corona
I had heard of that reason myself from at least 10 personal friends of mine as early as a month or two ago. It’s INCONCEIVABLE for a seasoned lawyer like Ligon NOT TO HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT!
If Ligon or his associates, and for that matter HLI, will say they indeed di not, then they’re one BIG BUNCH OF INCOMPETENTS! Which I don’t think they will admit to either.
So the million-dollar question now is WHY? I have two guesses.
First, Pnoy and his relatives want to project an image of fairness toward
to win back public support. Corona
Remember, guys, Pnoy’s popularity has DROPPED by nine percentage points (if I’ recall correctly) according to the surveys Malacanang ardently believes in. And as I’ve pointed out in an earlier blog, anti-Corona protest actions have STOPPED.
And if you’ll notice people, expressions of support for
ouster have practically ceased. No one is saying anything in media anymore in
support of Pnoy and the House prosecutors (EXCEPT THEMSELVES). Corona
Second, which I must admit is an early long shot, it is an advanced proof of the MAGNANIMITY they will claim in the event
acquitted by the senate Corona Impeachment
Pnoy and Malacanang will say that the acquittal proves they have been FAIR ALL ALONG to
, as what had been shown by the
decision of HLI and non-interference to it by Malacanang. Corona
So that the public backlash will not be as HARSH and HUMILIATING as it could be and they won’t look like the bad guys, especially in media.
Take your pick, boys and girls!

STOP and END this costly impeachment trial . DO NOT DELAY with TACTICAL MIND CONDITIONING . You all have used up too much of the people’s money
Thank you, friend Boyet Antonio, for carrying on the fight for enlightening the people on what is truly happening in the political landscape of our society. Truth to tell, it is really getting to be very tiring. Let us just all hope and pray that all these things will come to an end in the most favorable manner for everyone concerned. In my own opinion, these prosecutors are on the wrong side of the fence. I say to them, ENOUGH ALREADY!

CARANDANG SYMBOL OF PALACE ARROGANCE, GUILT!
It’s funny how easy it is to loose integrity and honesty when one is suddenly thrust into the seat of glitz and power. CARANDANG isn’t the first media practitioner or prominent TV personality to succumb. Remember Ricardo (Dong) Puno? He was ABS-CBN's star during his time - he lost it when he became Erap's Press Secretary. One who escaped this Byzantine trap is the late Ted Benigno (only because he quit early)... Really makes you ponder whether the job is worth the price you pay for.

The only real service Carandang does to perfection is demonstrate Abnoy’s arrogance and incompetence.
Being a communist, that is what he is advising to the clueless Abnot.
Yellow brigades are running out of words and are out of tune again! Wala na talagang natitirang kahihiyan mga yan! Palagay ko, parang batang magpapapasag mga yan sa kalsada pag na acquit si
