Who fed P.Noy moronic information that he then used in his SONA?

That is what a group of lawyers are asking now. They challenge President Benigno "P.Noy" Aquino III to reveal and hold accountable the people he relied on for vital information that was used as bases for making key assertions in a State of the Nation Address (SONA) he delivered to Congress on the 26th of July this year. These assertions have been under fire point-by-point in the days following the SONA with Malacanang hard-pressed but pathetically unable to put up a convincing rebuttal to any of the counter-assertions offered by Administration critics.

Clearly (though obviously not highlighted in most media outlets), the credibility of the Office of the President had been severely compromised by this bahala na SONA as the Manila Bulletin reports...
The National Association of Lawyers for Justice and Peace (NALJP) noted that the President’s credibility has been placed in serious jeopardy as a result of the wrong information he aired in his SoNA.

“Where is President Aquino getting his facts and figures? How can we be sure now of the accuracy and truth of whatever the administration will say?” the NALJP said in a statement sent to the media.

A few of the flawed points of the SONA were highlighted in the report:

Calamity fund given to former President Gloria Arroyo's district in Pampanga - P105m of the P200m remains "intact and undisbursed".

Alleged illegal housing project for MWSS personnel at the La Mesa Watershed -- evidence of legality presented and area shown to be "no longer part of the watershed".

Supposed depletion of the National Budget shown to be an exaggeration by Budget Secretary Florencio Abad himself.

The NALJP statement included this blunt call:
“The people have a right to know who is responsible and why. If nobody will be held responsible, then this administration should not be surprised if its credibility will be highly suspect, to say the least,” the statement said.

It added: “This administration is supposed to be on a reform agenda. How come they have been caught lying and misleading the people this early?”

Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure - that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets...

  1. There is still God who is in control. The real president. I'm happy to wait for bad karma to come biting back and for good karma to propagate the truth. honestly with the current regime at the helm now, the yellow media will stop at nothing to propagate the yellow fever, including its lies.

  2. It irritates me that I don't see this kind of issue in the mainstream media. Majority probably don't know about this.

  3. ronald, don't count on seeing this on popular news. the reason why president noynoy's so bent on building his communications group is not to really propagate output update to the masses, but to defend himself from his own fear of being victimized in the media. he and his cohorts so successfully destroyed the former president in the news for 9 years or less that they're trying to bend the sword that they used to prick their favorite bash-subject because they are now the ones vulnerable to be pricked by it. kaya nga sila takot sa sariling multo nila.

  4. There's another set of moronic data about PhilHealth. His researchers should be fired, giving him OLD data from USAID and telling him it's from PhilHealth.
