Because De Lima Ignores the Rule of Law

In the coming days, Philippine Department of Justice Secretary Leila De Lima's ability or disability to see beyond the color yellow will be revealed.

According to Manila Blog Man, the lawyers of embattled realty magnate Delfin Lee, President of Globe Asiatique, filed at the Supreme Court "an ex-parte temporary restraining order (TRO) directing the Department of Justice (DOJ) to cease and desist from filing the syndicated estafa case against him and the other respondents."

The filing of the petition came after the Court of Appeals 17th Division on Monday gave the DOJ the go signal to file syndicated estafa case against Lee and several others in connection with the case of the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) against Globe Asiatique. 
The lawyers of Lee questioned the CA move on pure questions of law, arguing that the decision setting aside the injunction issued by Judge Rolando Mislang of Pasig Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 167 violated settled jurisprudence and basic constitutional rights of Lee. 
With the CA decision and the appeal of Lee to the High Court, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima is put to test on whether she will contradict herself by filing the information in court, who declared in earlier cases that an order or decision against which a motion for reconsideration or appeal is filed is not yet executory.
The post likewise points out other instances where De Lima wobbled in justifying her actions. In one instance, she single-handedly denied Former President Gloria Arroyo her constitutional right to travel even though she had not been formally charged in court for violating any law.  In another instance, putting herself above the Judicial Branch of Government, she pushes for the arrest of Senator Panfilo Lacson.
It will be recalled that when the SC on Nov. 15, 2011 issued a TRO on the inclusion of former President Arroyo and husband Mike Arroyo in the immigration watch list, which, in effect, allowed them to go abroad, De Lima said the TRO was not yet final and executory until after the government motion for reconsideration had been filed and denied by the SC. 
In the case of Sen. Panfilo Lacson, De Lima has said that the arrest warrant against the senator remained in effect even if the Court of Appeals had voided it because of the options still given to the government then, including appealing the CA decision.
Does De Lima really have the capacity to go beyond brown-nosing the President and follow the rule of law?

John Lloyd says Ayos Dito PH is DA BOMB!

The runaway success of this blog has apparently reached the eyes of the gods of advertising and we have been tapped to promote this "buy and sell" website called "Ayos Dito PH".

It's the Philippine equivalent of E-bay, but better because it's run by Filipinos for Filipinos. How cool is that?

Now, if you've ever been told that you Facebook too much instead of earning money, well, here's the thing... You can use Ayos Dito PH with your Facebook account and actually earn money.

Aside from having an account over at Facebook, there is a new online passion sweeping the Pinoy online community---buying and selling. More and more Filipinos are using the Internet as a platform for selling and buying big-ticket items throughout the country.

Buying and selling is as old as bartering. Many Filipinos have earned extra income offering their pre-loved items to other Filipinos who need it. Before, buying and selling is a problematic activity. For one to succeed in buy and sell, you need to post an ad in a newspaper.

Now, there’s a cheaper, hassle-free and fast way of offering pre-loved items to those who need it—visit and post free ads on online websites such as, is  the preferred online marketplace and  was  awarded the No.1 Classified Ads site for 2011 by  Digital Filipino Search  profile index.   is a joint-venture of Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SPH) and Schibsted ASA.  Both SPH and Schibsted have buy and sell websites  in more than 30 countries: Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia,  Australia, Sweden, Brazil, Austria, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Finland, France, Greece,  Italy, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,  Venezuela and Vietnam, to name a few.

Focused on having the best online user experience is a site designed for easy use by first timers and veteran online users alike. Visit the site and you’ll find a map of the Philippines, and a list of regions. There is a search tab in the site which you can use to search for items you want to sell.

Despite the plain  no-frills look  of the site,  is fast, easily accessible by mobile or computer  and no matter how slow the connection of your ISP, the pages and photos load really fast.

Having a Facebook account is useful in building a user profile at Click the Facebook ap and you’ll be re-directed to the website URL. Follow instructions and in no time at all, you’ll become a member of the country’s no. 1 online classified ads site.
Jon Santico,  General Manager  of explains  that posting an Ad on  is as easy as 1-2-3.

1.         Click the post a free ad button
2.         Fill in details and attach photos of the item you are selling
3.         Wait for the confirmation email that your ad has been posted

Jon says: “ At Ayos, items are categorized by region so that it is easier to find great deals near you. Rather than having to pay extra for shipping or worry about not receiving the correct item or having to wait for weeks for items to arrive from abroad, we encourage people to meet up at mutually convenient places for both buyers and sellers to ensure you get the best possible deal.”

Why take the time to review ads?

Jon says: “ At we have a team of reviewers who go through the ads if information is missing such as contact details or if the photos are not suitable for online viewing. They also are on  the look-out for tell-tale signs that the sellers fraudulent.  We have a team that goes through ads and sends it back to you in case your  ad needs to be edited.”
We also like to keep the ads fresh and updated. We delete ads after 60 days so that you don’t get dead  or outdated links. We would really want it be as hassle- free for buyers and sellers as possible.

Is online buying and selling just for those with credit cards i.e the rich?
Santico says,

“Buying and Selling online is for all Filipinos. With internet penetration at about 30%  of total Filipinos,  we tend to think that  online buying and selling has to be limited to big ticket items.  Everyone has something to sell, and everyone has something they need to buy. Just look into your closet and bodegas and you will find something that you  no longer need and others may find useful.   Mostly online buy and sell sites  have  cars, computers, gadgets and real estate   content.   But what people don’t realize is that there is an opportunity for anybody to sell things they find at home that others may still find useful, outgrown items like baby items such as cribs and strollers, furniture that no longer fit  at home, or even clothes and shoes  that  relatives have sent from abroad but never fit you can be easily sold online.” recently launched its informational campaign through its television commercial featuring multi-awarded actor John Lloyd Cruz. Santico says that with John Lloyd Cruz’s popularity, it will spark more interest for Filipinos to indulge in this new online experience, that is hassle-free and allows you to build relationships with other Filipinos.

Controversial MMDA art or is it giving advertising space for free to a favored supplier?

While the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is big on pulling down billboards based on Memorandum Circular 11 and battling out door advertiser groups, it is not completely impervious to favoring one advertiser over the other and in fact has given at least one paint company permission to put up advertisement on public space for free.

The MMDA apparently struck a deal with Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines wherein it would be given permission to paint public spaces with its KNOxOUT paint brand.  The claims made for the paint is that it eliminates harmful carbon monoxide from the air through a catalytic reaction with the titanium dioxide contained in the paint.

Here's a statement from the Boysen KNOxOUT Facebook Page:
In effect, the Boysen KNOxOUT Project: EDSA will perform two duties that the city is clamoring for – an unprecedented public art project that will help transform EDSA as a showcase for art, and a huge functional piece that aids in neutralizing the air pollution in Metro Manila’s main artery.
The heavily advertised KNOxOUT paint claims it has embarked on this agreement with the MMDA as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility mission.

Boysen Knoxout Painting by Artist Snellman is now under fire.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that the paintings have been heavily publicized and therefore is recognizable as a project of Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines and is essentially getting free advertising space from the government.

Never mind that Pacific Pain (Boysen) Philippines shouldered the cost of paint, just mind the fact that outdoor advertisers would probably charge the company millions of pesos a month for the same size of advertising space.

Never mind that the art installed used KNOxOUT paint has been described as depressing and a possible hazard to motorists.

I saw a small painted sign on a mural that said it is a project of Boysen Paints, so it is a good guess that the paint was donated by Boysen. And it would seem that Boysen has an excess supply of brown paint. Boysen is a good quality paint; I use it myself for my house. But why a monotonous brown on the underpasses? If you mix together all the colors of paints (red, green, blue, yellow, violet, orange, etc.) you come out with brown. So this is probably the reason—to use all the excess paints. 
What the underpasses need is light, plenty of it. (So do the pedestrian overpasses.) The underpasses and overpasses are so dark that a pedestrian can be held up or raped there without anyone witnessing the crime. Lights have been installed in the underpasses but they are not enough. The underpasses are still so dark that entering one of them is like entering a cave or a tomb.
Nevermind, also that there are indications that ulra-fine titanium dioxide particulates is a cause of concern for being a health risk.

Boysen KNOxOUT contains CristalActiv photocatalytic technology, which is ultrafine titanium dioxide,
In an article titled "Titanium Dioxide: Toxic or Safe?" by Lori Stryker, B.Sc., B.H.Ec., B.Ed., some indications about the possible carcinogenic properties of titanium dioxide were explained:
The NIOSH declaration of carcinogenicity in rats is based on a study by Lee, Trochimowicz & Reinhardt, "Pulmonary Response of Rats Exposed to Titanium Dioxide by Inhalation for Two Years" (1985). The authors of this study found that rats chronically exposed to excessive dust loading of 250 mg/m cubed and impaired clearance mechanisms within the rat, for six hours per day, five days per week for two years, developed slight lung tumours.
Studies with subjects who applied sunscreens with micronized titanium dioxide daily for 2-4 weeks showed that the skin can absorb microfine particles. ..., but consumers should avoid using products with micronized mineral pigments, either in sunscreens or colour cosmetics.
Nevermind all of that, IT'S FREE ANYWAY. Right?

Filipino Men Raping Dogs

In journalism class, students are often told, "Dog bites man" isn't news and "Man bites dog" is news. But this newspaper headline is a bit extreme as it says, "Man rapes dog, dog bites man's penis."

Just hoping this headline doesn't send the wrong message that Pinays are insatiable sex machines, we've got enough image problems as a country as it is.

GRACE LEE leaves Morning Show of Mo Twister

“Avoid Mo Twister like a plague. He destroys relationships and wreaks havoc every time he opens his mouth”, says a group of concerned artists. “We also call on artists to stop guesting on his morning radio show.”

News is circulating that DJ Grace Lee will also quit the show. She hasn’t showed up for work for the last week. Sources say she is sick and tired of Mo Twister talking negatively about her alleged relationship with President PNoy. A few weeks back, her fellow DJ Mojo jojo decided to leave the disgraced morning show but has decided to keep his lips sealed.

Only a so-called DJ Suzy decided to stick it out with Mo Twister. Let’s see how long they will last…

The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment'
is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved'

6,000 Strong Facebook Group Corona Resign CORE Shuts Down?

One of the largest, if not THE largest, anti-Corona Facebook Group is shutting down -- albeit, temporarily, or so claims the self-proclaimed founder of the group, Jim "Chickboy" Sarthou.

This happens after dyed in the wool Pnoy supporters protested Jim's inability to see through his open fly and keep the group from being infiltrated by "scumbags".

Yes, that's Trixie Cruz Angeles -- the very same Trixie whom her former law firm partner Argee Guevarra is accusing of swindling.

January 15, 2012
Ref: Argee Guevarra
Ref: 09175348830/09189028077


In a sidebar to the commencement of the impeachment of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona, Atty. Argee Guevarra today reacted to news reports that Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles, Guevarra’s former law partner, will be heading the IBP Impeachment Watch Group. 
Guevarra revealed that he has personal knowledge and is in possession of documents that will expose Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles as a swindler and is ready to present them upon request by any interested party. 
Guevarra claims that he himself was a victim of Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles’ swindling activities particularly how he was conned into acting as a guarantor for the lady lawyer’s liposuction sometime in 2009. Guevarra also claims those victimized by Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles include Belo botched butt job victim and client Josefina Norcio and international painter Zhou Jun who fell prey to the lady lawyer’s fictitious rendering of alleged (P.R.) public relations services. 

Some Yellow members who are just as conservative and prudish like their Saint Cory, apparently didn't like the fact that Jim was cozying up to Trixie -- who is also the Integrated Bar of the Philippines Spokesperson for its Impeachment Watch.


Trixie is not exactly aligned with Corona Resign CORE's stand on Corona.

Case in point is that Trixie believes that CORE's current hero, Atty. Vitaliano Aguirre committed a grave error in trading barbs with Senator Judge Miriam Defensor Santiago.  In her own words, she says in an article published on ABS-CBN's news websites:
“For a lawyer to further his cause, it does little good him to disrespect a judge in his own courtroom. It endangers his client and his client's cause,” she said.
Trixie says Aguirre's "woe is me" appeal for respect from Senator Judge Santiago may have unnecessarily imperiled a case that is already in danger of being thrown out of the Impeachment Court.

What Jim hasn't told other members of the Corona Resign CORE Group is that Trixie was being tapped to defend Chief Justice Corona!

Here's an article from Rappler on Trixie being offered a job to defend Corona:

MANILA, Philippines - The lawyer of Oakwood mutineer, former Marine Captain Nicanor "Nick" Faeldon has been asked to join the legal team of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.  
Lawyer Rose Beatrix Cruz-Angeles confirmed to that she was offered a post on the team that will defend Corona in his impeachment trial. Angeles said she has yet to decide if she would accept the invitation or not. 
The female lawyer is scheduled to meet Corona later this week, the outcome of their meeting, according to her, will be a significant factor in her decision. 
If she decides to accept the position, Angeles says she will be tasked to handle one of the articles of impeachment. The lawyer, who has her own law firm, is a graduate of the University of the Philippines, Diliman. 
On January 9th, Angeles tweeted "You may have to miss me again, if I participate in the trial of the century," hinting her participation in the Corona trial.

Insider's in the Corona Defense panel however debunk Trixie's claim that she was offered any position in Corona's team. Some said that her closeness to Oakwood Mutineers, now allied with President Aquino, may compromise her professionalism as a lawyer.

Nevertheless, Trixie's stand on the Miriam Vs. Aguirre issue echoes the IBP's own stand on the Corona Impeachment Trial.

Here's Malaya Columnist Amado Macasaet tracing Corona's links with the IBP.

The clashing statements issued by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) under its President, former Congressman Roan Libarios, and the one issued by several past IBP Presidents manifest a wide chasm. 
The Libarios statement and all his media pronouncements so far offer an unabashed defense of Corona. The past presidents of the IBP, on the other hand, collectively support the impeachment process arguing that there should be no sacred cows in public service, not even Corona.
Lawyers in the know say that Corona wields substantial influence on the IBP, not only because of this institutional arrangement, but because Libarios was virtually installed by Corona to become IBP President. Corona rendered a controversial decision shortly after he was installed as the midnight chief justice that paved the way for Libarios to become IBP President. If what they say is true, Corona deserves a PhD summa cum laude for excellent foresight. Libarios, on the other hand, deserves a pat on the head for his gratitude as a dependable acolyte. 
Is should be no wonder why the IBP has consistently debunked the Impeachment Trial of Chief Justice Corona.

A news article from the Inquirer on the IBP statement saying that the Impeachment complaint was flawed betrays its bias for Corona.

The impeachment complaint against Chief Justice Renato Corona “suffers from fatal constitutional infirmities” and defects in form and substance, according to the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP). 
The “breakneck” speed by which the impeachment complaint against Corona was approved violated the “constitutional guarantee of separation of powers and judicial independence,” the IBP board of governors told a press briefing Wednesday. 
The IBP said the complaint was “discriminatory” against Corona and an act of “persecution,” as it was allowed to push through even as it threatens to disrupt constitutional balance.

Perhaps a good number of CORE members questioned Jim's association with Trixie and this tended to taint some of Jim's "Fund Raising Activities".

Some members actually questioned the necessity of raising funds for the well paid private prosecutor Vitaliano Aguirre.  This is the same Aguirre who was the lead counsel in the Vizconde Massacre Case and interrogated the Magdalo mutineers, some of whom were clients of Trixie's.

Instead of backing down and admitting he may have had committed a mistake in associating himself, as well as the Corona Resign CORE Facebook Group with Trixie, Jim displays arrogance and comes out swinging against members of the group who brought up the issue with him.

He actually puts down the sentiments of some members of the group and defends Trixie!

This was followed by dozens of people leaving the group which its administrators frantically tried to hide by adding as many people as they can find to the group.

We feel sorry for Jim because it appears he may be losing his meal ticket because he listened too much to his little pecker.

Because Senator Judge Miriam Defensor Santiago made Vitaliano Aguirre Cry

Jim Sarthou and his half dozen friends in the Astro-Turfed Facebook Group "Corona Resign CORE" can eat their hearts out because Chief Justice Renato C. Corona is going to get acquitted.

Jim Sarthou and Anger Management

The Terminator after running out of Rogaine.
Jim Sarthou, the founder and leader of the Facebook Group Corona Resign CORE certainly has a lot to get off his chest.

We can't blame him.  With his career as a musician and sound engineer nearly through, he's now spending most of his time trying to keep the fires of indignation alive against Impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona.

When he is not carrying a torch and pitchfork along with other hardcore supporters of President Benigno Aquino III, he is either ogling girls at the Impeachment Trial and having pictures taken with them or organizing meet ups with his Facebook pals.

In anycase, Good Ol' Jim was quite upset with Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago for having berated and cussed the prosecution panel for presenting an ill-prepared case before the Impeachment Court.

He was so upset, that as leader and founder of the Corona Resign CORE group on Facebook, he ordered the lifting of a group rule that disallowed cussing.

Now, Cory Aquino has been widely credited for restoring Freedom of Speech in the Philippines and I love her for it because it created an environment where a communications expert like myself thrived.

Of course, Free Speech has its boundaries -- especially on Facebook where the boundaries are so clearly explained.


If the copy is too hard for you to read the screen capture above, the Facebook Policy on Safety reads:

6.  You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.

7. You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.

Now, Jim was a bit of a naughty boy and perhaps in a fit of over-middle age exuberance (the kind men his age get when prostrate troubles ease up a bit and a viagra flashback happens at just the right time), he started inciting his groupies on Facebook to engage in a bit of virtual mayhem.

Here's one where he colorfully describes the parentage of Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.

Of course, Senator Santiago has been known to claim that she eats death threats for breakfast and here's Jim Sarthou preparing to brekkie for the focus of his fap fest.

Hahaha! Oh Jim, you are really funny!!  And I guess, everybody at the Impeachment Trial will be rolling in the galleries if and when you get to pull off sitting in full view of Senator Santiago as members of the Corona Resign CORE Facebook Group all cover your ears!

That'll be FUN!!!
