Understanding The Philippine Supreme Court From A Constitutional Perspective

supreme-court-buildingThe past year has seen the Supreme Court of the Philippines embattled with Chief Executive, President BS Aquino, and a number of his allied minions over the court rulings of unconstitutionality regarding 2 major areas.

First, over the PDAF (Priority Development Assistance Fund) which had allowed Congress to play around with the tax payers money for what mostly turned out to be the Congressional leaders “pet projects.”

And most recently, the DAP (Disbursement Acceleration Program), which had been exposed to be the “personal play toy” of both the President and his financial wizard, Florencio “Butch” Abad. And had given them the “power of the purse” without Congressional knowledge and/or approval.

Almost immediately the President attacked the Supreme Court regarding their ruling on the DAP, which is “his” toy. From claiming they didn’t understand his “good faith” intentions. To the point of telling the nations highest court, they have no clue or understanding of Constitutional Law.

Since July 2nd, BS Aquino and his allies have done everything possible to get the SC to bend to his whims. From releasing their personal asset values in an attempt to publicly embarrass them. To “inviting” the Chief Justice to a Senate hearing. Even stating they have overextended their boundary as the Supreme Court itself. Now BS Aquino intends to either strip them of their powers, and/or threaten impeachment of the entire bench if they don’t do as he wants.

The President has quite obviously revealed himself as more of a Dictator, rather than the leader of a democratic nation.

So rather than spout of a bunch of offensively defensive gibberish. Let us read the sections in each of the nations Constitutions regarding the Judiciary.

Simply click on each link, to read and be educated as to the importance of the Supreme Court. You will be very surprised to find out how similar they are. And how their position is vital to the continued success and growth of the nation.

1935 Commonwealth Constitution

1973 “Marcos” Constitution

1987 “Cory” Constitution

If President Aquino succeeds in his efforts to strip the Supreme Court of its autonomy, as well as being the protectors of the Constitution, their will be no end to the control, destruction and devastation Aquino and his Liberal Party can bring down upon the people. And if you thought the North Koreans have it bad? Just wait and see what else the Aquino’s have in store for you.

This kind of shit sure does make Ferdinand Marcos look more like a saint now. Doesn’t it?
