The incredulous and stinky ‘NapoList’

napolistBefore I went under the knife for knee replacement in March, I was kind of satisfied the way things were going with the multi-billion peso congressional pork barrel scam probe, that there seemed to be a looming scene where three incriminated politicians cum skunks in the Senate were heading for the calaboose. Finally I thought that the 2016 elections will be an event where lessons have been learned and changes for the better be made with the right people being voted upon.

Now I realize how wrong I had been.

Thanks to Janet Lim Napoles and her much taunted ‘NapoList’, more politicians/skunks/scoundrels are being unmasked and much to the dismay of the Filipino people they are all, understandably and slyly, disavowing their knowledge and more so their participation in the scam.

Shamed, disgraced and curtailed freedom by incarceration, Napoles’ health has taken a turn for the worse. She was bleeding and after consultation with the doctors it was recommended that she undergo hysterectomy. This was in April and, perhaps, entertaining the inevitable idea that if something happens to her she wanted to make sure that she was in good graces with the Lord, Napoles decided to confess all to the DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima what she knew and the additional personalities involved in the scam.

But in the same token the chronically scheming Napoles also politically thought that if she comes out still breathing, her act of telling all will endear her to the public and sway their opinion into making her a state witness, thus saving her skin.

Napoles’ confession, however, did not bode well for her, for the more politicians/skunks/scoundrels she has gotten embroiled, the deeper she has gotten herself also mired in the mess and the guiltier she has become.

The scam has become so ugly, muddled and complicated that one is not sure anymore if anyone of those who allegedly participated in the scam by defrauding the government and receiving whopping kickbacks in return will ever go to jail.

The pathetic thing about all these revelations is that we don’t even know if we will see the end of this investigation in our lifetime and get the satisfaction that we have seen the rascals wearing the orange uniform of a prisoner with the letter “P” printed on it.

But for sure we will see many of them still around continue disguising as public servants, trotting like peacocks, innocent looking and smooth-talking as ever.

I wouldn’t be surprised if those young upstart senators aiming to run in the 2016 presidential and vice presidential race are doing it because of their sole motive to forego the PDAF scam investigation – if they win.

The more that I wouldn’t be surprised that sooner than later these young upstarts will stop supporting PNoy or bolt out from the LP or the alliance and support the opposition for obvious reason.

To me, and like many Filipinos, the most agonizing and distasteful experience in the PDAF/ Malampaya and other related scams is that the mind-boggling amount lost could have been our ticket for a more developed, cohesive and progressive Philippines with strong army, air force and navy to boot that could at least take a stand against a bullying nation and not owning ‘proudly’ a dilapidated navy ship LT57 BRP Sierra Madre that can’t do anything at all to secure our seas.

  1. This is just so sad. And you’re so right about the money that was wasted to all these worthless politicians would have benefited the country more.

      Indeed it is. One can’t believe the country could come up with that much money only to be ‘vaporized’ by corrupt officials leaving majority of Filipinos continually poor and wanting.

    Ang Ospital ng Makati na may Letrang “B”
    At Ang Pagdugo ni Janet Lim Napoles
    Ni Apolinario Villalobos

    Marami ang nalungkot nang hindi ibinalik si Napoles sa kanyang bahay-bakasyunan sa Tanay, pagkatapos ng itinakdang panahon ng pamamahinga nang siya ay operahan sa Ospital ng Makati. Inasahan ko na ito – gagawa at gagawa ng paraan upang maantala ang paglabas niya sa ospital, at ang naisip ay ang pagdugo daw niya at diabetes.

    May kaibigan ako na ang asawa ay sumailalim din sa operasyong katulad ng ginawa kay Napoles. Nakatira sila sa isang maliit na bahay, kinakapos pa ng pagkaing masustansiya, kung minsan pati gamot na nireseta, pero nakakaraos. Ang sabi ng doctor ni Napoles, sa Tanay daw ay hindi siya pwede dahil pati tubig na pampaligo at pambuhos sa kubeta ay sinasalok niya sa poso, at ang balde ay siya daw mismo ang nagbibitbit.

    Kung diabetes ang problema, may mga gamot naman at ang mga sosyal niyang doctor na taga-St. Lukes ay pwedeng regular na pasyalan siya. Pansamantala, pwede sigurong bigyan siya ng female warden o police woman na aalalay sa kanya. Marami ring tauhan doon na maaaring maghakot ng tubig para sa kanya. Kung gusto niyang madagdagan ang lamig ng bahay, dagdagan ang bentilador.

    Sa pagka-wise ng mga abogado at mga doktor ni Napoles, baka pinag-iisipan na nilang papedikyuran ito at sadyang pasugatan ang mga daliri sa paa upang hindi gumaling, dahil diabetic nga. Ang nagagawa nga naman ng pera! Maraming nababayarang taong kayang lunukin ang prinsipyo.

    Nagustuhan yata ni Napoles ang ospital ng Makati. Ang sabi ng isa kong kaibigan paborito siguro niya ang letrang “B” na nakikita sa mga sulok nito. Pati daw sa kisame meron ding ganitong letra…yan ang sabi naman ng isang kilala ko na-confine na doon. Sabi ko sa kanya, hindi lang sa Makati merong letra na animo ay tatak ng pag-aari. Meron din sa ibang lunsod, subali’t upang hindi mahalata ay dinadaan sa kunwari ay mga slogan subali’t hina-highlight ang tatlong letra, mga initial ng pangalan ng nakaupong mayor.

    Ang payo ko sa mga naghihimutok, magdasal na lang, nasanay na rin lang sila sa mga epekto ng mga kabalbalang pagnanakaw ng mga corrupt na mamababatas at iba pang opisyal ng pamahalaan. Pati ako sanay na rin, kaya nauunawaan ko na ang mga letra ay nagpapahiwatig na saang sulok man ng ating kawawang bansa tayo tumingin, nakikita natin ang mga nakakasukang tatak ng corruption.

      I don’t want to be mean but I don’t think she deserves any sympathy. Looks like she really still has clout, the B….!
