NINGAS KUGON – The ‘Yellowists’ seemed to have a habit of pointing fingers to anyone, officials alike, as they claim to allegedly fight corruption and ran after the those who discredit their interests. Many corruption – related issues were clearly abandoned despite the taxpayer’s outcry for JUSTICE, only leading to more senate inquiries with questionable verdict at most cases and until it eventually subsides.

For many years, they make the innocent minds believe that THEY WERE the real crusaders of anti - corruption by repeatedly accusing Marcos’s plunder stint and their ill-gotten wealth, along with former PGMA’s and Binay’s supposed corruption case as well as the controversial DAP Scam that shook the entire political system having NONE of their own being put behind bars.

For many years, they try to make their hands clean. For many years, they make a scene out of the wrong people. For many years, they try but never succeed.

This is the sentiment, with which pro – Duterte supporter Atty. Bruce Rivera has in mind over Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s statement on former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s return to power as Leader of the House of Representative.

On Rivera’s Facebook post, Senator Trillanes was quoted saying, “Sa pagbabalik ni CGMA, it shows na walang anti – corruption advocacy itong administrasyon na ito. Noong 2010, si GMA ang mukha ng korapsyon tapos ngayon isa na siya sa haligi…talagang birds of the same feathers flock together.”

Meanwhile, here’s Rivera’s entire Facebook post reacting to Trillanes’s:

“Soon-to-be Ex-Senator Trillanes,

Please do not aggravate our anger towards you and anyone connected to you. When you say this administration does not have anti-corruption advocacy, you mean to tell me the past administration has it?

“When you advocate anti-corruption, you do not just say it, you make sure the corruption is either prevented or the public official is INVESTIGATED, CHARGED, TRIED AND CONVICTED. Otherwise, it is not an advocacy but just a hobby or past time endeavor.

“Tell me how many members of the Cabinet did PNoy remove despite allegations of corruption? Napoles pointed out Abad but he never lifted a finger to investigate him. Did you raise any question? Wala. Kasi kakampi ninyo. But Senator Trillanes, you were so enigmatic in your accusations against VP Binay then. If you are really an advocate, why are you only accusatory if they are not allies but seem to be deaf and blind to actions of your allies. Did you even question the propriety of the DAP when you got it from then Secretary Abad. You knew the source of the funds and the timing you got it.

“And were you successful in subsequently convicting VP Binay of all the corruption allegations you hurled against him using too many of your time,ergo, taxpayers money to investigate in aid of legislation. Did you even author relevant legislation as a result of your Binay witch hunt? The Binays are still here.

“So why are the Arroyos still here. Simple. The PNoy administration with your help maneuvered to create a public outcry of corruption using a supposedly intelligent DoJ Secretary de Lima to file charges thereby enabling the prosecution of cases but she had to disobey the Supreme Court so PNoy can detain GMA. But, the PNoy administration could NOT even manage to convict GMA or any of her family. And if YOU still claim she is guilty, that is worse for an advocate. To not be able to convict someone who is guilty.

“And what about the Marcoses? Two Aquino presidents with all the vast powers could not even put a dent and convict any of them. And again, if many people insist Marcos plundered the nation, is the failure of punishment even something more shameful for you and the people you fraternize and call anti-corruption advocates. GMA said she is sorry about calling Garci and yet, your team could not even make a good corruption case against her.

“Here the reality: The Marcoses are back and as strong as ever, GMA is again above the pedestal of power, the Binays still are a force to reckon with not because the Duterte administration has no anti-corruption advocacy, it is because in the years you are Senator and your allies who ruled the land....

“YOU SUCKED AT BEING ANTI-CORRUPTION ADVOCATES. Ang gagaling ninyong mamaratang, pero wala kayong bayag patunayan.
