Quotable quotes

SENATOR Loren Legarda (On the US News that the Philippines is the No. 1 of 20 countries to best invest in): “We are gradually seeing the positive effect of the administration’s sound economic policies. I laud the efforts of both the public and private sector, especially the President [Rodrigo Roa Duterte] and his economic team. All of these show the growing confidence of both local and foreign investors in our economy and could only result in growth also in the countryside and of our people. We see this to further improve especially with the government’s infrastructure development agenda, the legislature’s support through measures that will improve government processes and ensure ease of doing business in the country, and maintaining peace and order”

Senator Sonny Trillanes: “If you’re looking for a disastrous Dream Team, the senatorial team of Duterte is your Dream Team. The fact that they are with Mr. Duterte makes it a Disaster Dream Team.” A statement by a disgruntled Yellow in his relentless put-down of a leader that was elected by an unprecedented majority. The most law-abiding, trustworthy, productive, the most decisive ever, hereabouts. 

SC CJ Maria Lourdes Sereno: “Hindi ako ang nagsimula ng gulo. Sila ang nagsimula. Bakit ayaw nila tapusin? (I did not start this mess. They started it. Why won’t they see it to the end?)” Referring to Congress planning to end impeachment, and uprear and concentrate on the quo waranto instead. The “gulo” was started by CJ Sereno herself for not being forthright about her SALN--a crime. As did her impeached predecessor, was not forthright about his SALN.

Jesus Nicardo Falcis III, Petitioner and Lawyer: “We celebrate the historic opportunity to argue before the Supreme Court the right to equal protection of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) couples all over the Philippines on June 19, coincidentally the birthday of our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal who was an advocate of equal rights and secularism. We wish to allay the unfounded fears of the Romano Catholic Church and of religious people about same-sex marriage. Our petitions will not legalize same-sex marriages in Churches. Our petitions, when granted, will only legalize same-sex marriages under the law--civil marriages performed before judges and mayors....There are numerous churches, such as the LGBTS Christian Church and Metropolitan Community Church, in the Philippines that believe there is nothing wrong with same-sex marriage and they perform religious ceremonies to marry same-sex couples. We have waited long enough for the opportunity and we thank the Supreme Court for its decision to hold oral arguments on our petitions to achieve marriage equality. Love will finally have its day in court!” Representing Reverend Crescencio Agbayani Jr. and Marlon Felipe, Petitioners and gay couple; Maria Arlyn Ibanez and partner.

Writer Federico D. Pascual Jr.: “The repetitive use of ‘fake news’ in media has hypnotized enough people to think without reflection that any report labeled fake news is false and harmful and must be rejected outright. At some point, a lie repeated endlessly can start to have the ring of truth. Closer examination shows, however, that what propagandists and their ilk in government and private media tag as ‘fake news’ is simply any report that they disapprove of or which is bad for their patrons and clients. As we tried to define it in this space...’fake news’ is any report that a politician or public figure or a private person does not like. The misleading label is propagated by their PR handlers, bloggers and propagandists till it registers in the public mind.”

Columnist Rina Jimenez David: “Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque accuses the Rappler reporter, along with everyone in Rappler, of engaging in fake news when Rappler reported suspicions being raised about the full extent of executive assistant Bong Go’s interest in the Navy frigate deal. But it must be made clear that news that question the administration’s views, or raise doubts about the veracity of the official line, is not peddling fake news. It is in fact an earnest effort to get at the full real truth behind the lies being peddled to the public.” 

Note the use of the word “lies.” Is a pronouncement of the administration automatically a lie just because it tangled with the biases of a political opponent? Government statements that my biases see as lie, could be truth. Those who flaunt the words ‘fake news’ must be told that there still is no final definition of fake news in this, here, our culture. Anything that I say that the hearer disagrees with, is fake news to the hearer. Anything that the President says is fake news to Yellow political opponent Sonny Trillanes. And Sonny, whose loyalty to a nationally-elected leader ends where his loyalty to his Yellows begins, sees Everything Duterte as fake news. None is so objective to state truth. Your truths are only as objective as your biases will allow. Pope Francis, improvised comments while saying mass at the Vatican: “There are those who say ‘I am very Catholic, I always go to mass, I belong to this and that organization’... It is a scandal to say one thing and do another. That is a double life.... These people should say, my life is not Christian, I don’t pay my employees proper salaries, I exploit people, I do dirty business, I launder money, I lead a double life.... There are many Catholics who are like this and they cause scandal. How many times have we all heard people say ‘If that person is a Catholic, it is better I am an atheist’. Christians should see atheists as good people if they do good.’ On the matter of sexual abuse of children by priest: ...’Tantamount to Satanic mass.’ [Addressing his own cardinals]: ‘ Not to act as if they were princes.’ [So speaks the head of the Romano Church, improvised comments while saying mass at the Vatican. When is Francis going to address the constitutionally-mandated separation of church and state in the Philippines?]
