It is unfortunate that senators are normally protecting their parties instead of searching for the truth that the people deserves. This is the case of the Blue Ribbon Committee Probe against former Vice President Jejomar Binay. It served as a demolition job strategy to prevent him from becoming president.
[VIDEO]: The ugly truth about the Senate Blue Ribbon’s Demolition job on former Vice President Jejomar Binay.
Blue Ribbon Senators
Senators Antonio Trillanes III, Alan Peter Cayetano and Koko pimentel were the active ones participating in the demolition job against Binay. They were seen harassing or intimidating witnesses in every answer favoring Binay. They tolerate lies, hearsay and false witnessing if it was for the good of the party they are protecting.
Blue Ribbon Senators Strike Again
Senators who are acting as lawyers and as detectives to pin down their suspect is now again occupying two big stages. The only difference is, they have different roles now. In fact, Trillanes and Cayetano are now at war contrary to when they were in connivance against Binay. Cayetano is pro Duterte and Trillanes is pro De Lima.
Two Big Senate Tele-Novelas
This time, the tide turns against Senator Leila De Lima who gave Binay a hard time before. She is now on hot seat as alleged protector of the illegal drugs trade. Whereas in another show, President Rodrigo Duterte himself is under scrutiny on extra judicial killings that allegedly resulted from his aggressive drug war.
Public Services not Prioritized
The senate and the executive’s warring each other made them neglectful in dealing with public service matters. The economy is dwindling and killings escalate without knowing the people responsible for the many lives that have been lost. The bad reality is, unnecessary premature deaths are increasing.
