I’ve asked it before and I’ll ask it again, with the strongest and most urgent emphasis anyone can imagine:
WHAT MAKES JUETENG UNTOUCHABLE to Pnoy’s government?
Jueteng is still ILLEGAL. Police officials once acknowledged, several years ago, that jueteng is a multi-billion industry.
But in the more than two years that Pnoy has been President, there has NEVER BEEN A CAMPAIGN against jueteng – NO ARREST OR INVESTIGATION of even one alleged jueteng lord, NO ROUND-THE-CLOCK RAIDS on jueteng dens, no nothing.
As if jueteng does not exist, or has been legalized.
Two days ago and today, I came across news reports of police chiefs in far areas like Pangasinan and the Bicol region being relieved for failing to stop jueteng.
The government went after those who couldn’t supposedly stop jueteng, but it’s NOT DOING ANYTHING against the jueteng lords.
Anti-jueteng advocate retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz once publicly stated there are reports that DILG Undersecretary Rico Puno was allegedly receiving jueteng bribes.
But Pnoy HIMSELF almost IMMEDIATELY cleared Puno, without even ordering a probe.
Malacanang had better not say that there’s no drive against jueteng because there’s no intelligence report about it.
I’m sure the Philippine National Police (PNP) has MOUNTAINS OF REPORTS or data on jueteng and jueteng lords, and will still have the guts to object if they will be made to look INCOMPETENT with such an alibi, if ever.
Pnoy never fails to mention his ‘tuwid na daan’ slogan whenever he can. He tries louder than the loudest bomb blast in proclaiming in as many ways as possible that he is against corruption.
But he seems to suffer partial amnesia when it comes to jueteng, which everybody knows BRIBES CORRUPT POLITICIANS and POLICE OFFICIALS.
Now consider this: Some, if not all, of these corrupt politicians will be running again in next year’s polls. If they can’t run anymore, they’ll ask their spouses, their kids or their henchmen.
Jueteng bribes will help them BUY MORE GUNS AND GOONS.
These guns and goons will be used to hurt, if not kill, anybody who will endanger the victory of the corrupt politician or their bets in next year’s elections.
That anybody can be you, me, members of our family, our relatives and friends or anybody you can think of. And when corrupt politicians win, it’s us ordinary mortals who suffer in a hundred and one ways.
From the theft of our taxes, abuse of power to zero performance in the public office they seek, name it corrupt politicians do it.,
That’s the REAL DANGER of the untouchable jueteng, people. Thin about it.
From our friends:
BILLIONS MORE MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR!

TRIPS FOR PLEASURE, PROPAGANDA! US
Nothing, Boyet... he was even ignored and was never invited to speak at the US Congress. He was made to wait, for a while, before Obama even went to see him, and even then, Obama was not really talking to him. It was a less than 30-minute visit... so he better quit lying.
Obvious ba na mukha siyang giggling teenage female fan noong nagkita sila ni Sanchez?
Pnoy’s trip was nothing but leisure.

He should stop saying that.

working as the President. It’s the economy, stupid Corona
Sobrang kayabang naman nun, I believe that democracy and due process always come together, and that the Bill of Rights is supreme. Thank, Sir Boyet Antonio, sa share."
