ALLEGED PORK BARREL scam queen Janet Lim-Napoles was sentenced to a life in prison after being found guilty of serious illegal detention. Rumors say some Court of Appeals justices can’t wait for her appeal.
Janet Lim-Napoles has been transferred to the Correctional Institution for Women in Mandaluyong City to begin serving her prison term. The Correctional’s set of visitation rules is not that strict. She is allowed to see at least 10 lawmakers per day.
Suspected pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles showed no reaction when the guilty verdict was read. She is unfazed by the life sentence, insisting that she has a “clear conscience.” Some former employees were baffled. She has a conscience?
The latest SWS survey is out. Vice President Binay got 36 percent while Sen. Grace Poe got 31 percent. That’s a 10-percentage point improvement for the senator from the December 2014 survey. She has definitely inched closer to Binay. Observers believe Grace is doing a good job. But Trillanes is doing it better.
Vice President Binay said there should be a law against “bullying public officials.” It will be called “An Act To Prevent Ordinary People From Bullying Those Who Most Certainly Deserve It.”
President Aquino was interviewed this week by Agence France Presse in Malacañang. When asked to reflect on the Marcos dictatorship, he said, “It doesn’t mean I don’t have emotions (but) I cannot act like I am a hot-headed 16-year-old.” Definitely not. He’s not acting like a hot-headed 16-year-old. That’s unfair. He’s acting like a hot-headed 7-year-old.
The MILF’s breakaway group, the BIFF – which has been attacking military installations in Mindanao and killing government soldiers, is mourning the death of their leader identified as Ustadz Ameril Umbra Kato. If that’s even his freakin’ real name.
BIFF founding leader Ustadz Ameril Umbra Kato is dead. The military was able to confirm his death when his three wives updated their Facebook status to Single.
In a TV interview, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos revealed that her husband, Sen. Ralph Recto cheated on her – once. Either that or she didn’t know how to count.
Vilma Santos said it was an emotional moment when she confronted Ralph Recto about his other woman. Initially, Ralph was like, “Wala akong ginagawang masama.” To which, Ate Vi replied, “Akala mo lang wala – pero meron! Meron!”
Batangas Governor Vilma Santos told Mareng Winnie Monsod [on the TV show “Bawal Ang Pasaway”] that Sen. Ralph Recto had an affair with another woman. The actress-politician told Mareng Winnie that she has since forgiven the senator. In fact, during that emotional confession, she warned, “Next time, be careful.’” To his credit, Ralph has been successful so far.
To those who are too young to remember: Vilma Santos was already 31 years old when she started dating Ralph Recto who was only 21. Vilma was still using her other screen name then: Demi Moore.
In a speech before the students and teachers of Tarlac National High School Friday, President Aquino said, “Tapusin muna ang mga takdang-aralin bago ang raid sa Clash of Clans.” He was referring to a popular computer game. The title of his speech was “Look Who’s Talking.”
Sixty five-year-old singer Billy Joel is having a baby. There’s still hope, President Aquino. There’s still hope.

“Kung merong batas laban sa mga bully sa eskwelahan, dapat din ho sana magkaroon ng batas na ‘yung mga bullying public officials.”
~Vice President Binay
“I cannot forgive. ‘Wag na siyang mag-apologize, because at this point, it’s not going to help lessen the hate. Hindi kami vindictive, pero hindi rin kami madaling magpatawad.”
