Mr.Clean Binay: "It's a sin to tell a lie!" EQPost

Mr. CleanBinay 
Be sure it's true when you say, 'I love you'
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
“To say that he once fed his (former Makati) Vice Mayor (Ernesto Mercado) from his own hands only for Mercado to turn against him and that he [is an ingrate] is definitely not the best way to impeach a witness. To expose the alleged luxury vehicles of Senator Trillanes will never explain the provenance of the air-conditioned piggery and gardening site, a 350-hectare estate.” 
DOJ Secretary Leila De Lima
Liar Liar Pants On Fire is a phrase that children like to scream at each other whenever they think the other is lying. They also like to scream it at adults who tell them stories about fairies. 
It is an overall stupid thing to say, since if your pants actually caught on fire when you lied, more politicians would be dead. From Urban Dictionary
The Lifestyle of The Rich and Famous Binays
From Inquirer
ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines—If his army of detractors are to be believed, he’s already several billion pesos away from his simple beginnings, but Vice President Jejomar Binay still thinks the rich are the enemy and are out to get him.
In an interview with a Pagadian City radio station here on Friday, Binay said Oplan Nognog 2016, allegedly concocted to remove him from contention in the 2016 presidential election, was actually a “political” war being waged by the rich against the poor of this country.
“The rich do not want people who come from poor families to rise to the highest position in the country,” he said.
In the Pagadian radio interview, Binay said he had no need to expound on what the word nognog meant as the Filipino people knew it was a derisive term for dark or small people.
Nognog is the name of a small, dark boy, the title character in a comic strip created by cartoonist Leandro San Juan Martinez in the 1960s and 1970s.
“The only ones capable of thinking up ways to sneer at and smear [reputations] are rich people like [Interior Secretary] Mar Roxas. You already know this. We are the same, I grew up poor. They don’t want us to be united. They don’t want me to lead the fight against poverty and joblessness in our country,” Binay said in Filipino.
Binay and his camp earlier said that the corruption and ill-gotten wealth allegations against him were part of a plot to destroy his chances of becoming President in 2016, a plot called “Oplan Nognog 2016” that they claimed was hatched by Roxas and Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, who both have ambitions of running for President in 2016.
Cayetano, with Senators Koko Pimentel and Antonio Trillanes IV, is leading a Senate subcommittee investigation into the allegedly overpriced P2.3-billion Makati City Hall Building II that began construction when Binay was still the mayor of Makati. 
The probe has rapidly escalated as witness after witness showed up at the Senate with mind-boggling allegations of the ill-gotten wealth that Binay and his family allegedly accumulated.
Walks like a duck…
Binay said the accusations against him were really politically motivated and were aimed at demolishing his chances of leading the country.
He said Roxas knew right after the presidential election in 2010 that he (Binay) would be going after the top post in 2016. (Roxas, the vice presidential running mate of President Aquino in 2010, lost to Binay in that electoral contest.)
“The day after the election, when you insisted to know what my plans were for 2016, then and there I admitted [that I would run for President],” Binay said.
As proof that the Senate investigation into his alleged corruption and hidden wealth was politically motivated, Binay claimed that staff from Roxas’ office were among the passengers of the helicopter that was used to take aerial footage of the 350-hectare Batangas property that Cayetano and the other Senate probers and witnesses claimed belonged to Binay and his family.
“The helicopter that was used was owned by a funder of Mr. Roxas. Reports even said that his staff were in the chopper,” he said.
Binay said that when one of the witnesses in the Senate hearings was hospitalized, Roxas was among the early visitors.
He was referring to former Makati Vice Mayor Ernesto Mercado.
“What more can you say? Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, is a duck,” he said.
Binay said he has yet to decide whether to accept the invitation of the entire Senate blue ribbon committee, the mother committee of the subcommittee that is handling the Binay probe, to appear before it and respond to the corruption allegations against him.
“Let us see first what it is exactly, then we can talk about it,” he said.
Binay reiterated he did not want to face the Senate blue ribbon subcommittee because its objective was to malign his reputation.
Debate with Trillanes
On the proposed public debate with Trillanes, Binay said he would be available to debate anytime, anywhere and hopes that everything would be clear after the debate.
Proposed Key Issues of The 2014 Public Debate
For Binay:
  • Who was responsible for the big-time corruption in Makati?
  •  Do you categorically deny that there was  corruption at all in Makati during your term?
  •  Please explain your "incredible rags to riches" story.
  • Tell us the real story behind the"Binay Mansions and Houses".
  • Explain the thickets of cobwebs in Makati.
For Trillanes
  • Are you pursing the Senate investigation for political reasons?
  • Will you apologize if Binay is proven innocent of the charges?
  • Please explain  the "unexplained wealth"charges against you.
  • How many "luxury" cars do you really own?
  • Are you afraid of a Binay presidency?
