The BINAYS: The Rise and Fall of The Dynasty!

The Rise and Fall of The Dynasty
“I’m hearing emotional stories about his family,” Obama reportedly told President Benigno S. Aquino III as Binay narrated his story (during the State Dinner). From YahooNews

Rethinking Political Dynasties
by ANDRE ENCARNACION in UP Forum
Not all that is legal is moral!” cried Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago with the gravity of a bishop denouncing vice.
The sin in question, however, was  primarily political rather than religious in nature. During the budget deliberations for the Office of the Vice President late last year, the senator delivered these words as a swipe at Vice President Jejomar Binay for his stance against bills prohibiting political dynasties.
The tone, though vehement, was not surprising. Santiago is the author of Senate Bill No. 2649, or An Act to Prohibit Political Dynasties, which seeks to prohibit spouses and relatives up to the second degree of consanguinity from running for office in the same province in the same election.
Not one to be silenced, Santiago struck again in a more recent speech, calling dynasty members “stationary bandits,” while labeling the country the “world capital of political dynasties.”
“They have carved out a monopoly for themselves,” she asserted, “as if only their families were qualified for public office.”
Like many critics, Santiago views political dynasties as inherently bad, their persistence being in direct violation of the 1987 Constitution. Dynasties are also seen, and not without basis, as contributors to poverty, not to mention “fraud, violence, vote buying and intimidation.”
The "Arrogance of Power" at the gate of Banyan and McKinley Roads was recorded by the closed-circuit television cameras of North Forbes Park and Dasmariñas Village.
MANILA, Philippines—A 15-minute video showing Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay and his four-car convoy attempting to pass through a restricted gate of a posh subdivision went viral   registering 771, 237 views on the video-sharing website YouTube to-date.
The video provoked anger and dismay among netizens, many of them saying the incident showed the “arrogance” of the Makati mayor and his sister Sen. Nancy Binay, who was also on the video. The two officials are children of Vice President Jejomar Binay.

“Wow good job Mayor Binay. So because guards don’t let you pass through a restricted gate you have them arrested? Wow,” said netizen @ginoboi.
“I can buy you, your guards, and this village!” said netizen @ANDREWdecastro, parodying the infamous quote made by actress Anne Curtis in a drunken fit.
“If #Binay can’t respect simple village rules, how much more our national laws?” said netizen @kintoy.
“Wow! Punishing people for doing their jobs? Way to go Binay!” said netizen @sahmylicious.“Wow, there’s video of the alleged ‘Binay vs Dasma’ incident? Amazing how guards stood their ground,” posted TV sports anchor @tjmanotoc.“I’d be proud kung ganon kahigpit ang guards because that means maganda ang security service nila which is what companies pay for (I’d be proud if guards are that strict because that means the security service which companies pay for is good),” netizen @olojyu noted.
“Noynoy in 2010: ‘Matuwid na daan (Straight path).’ Ang mga Binay in 2016: ‘Amin ang daan (The road is ours),’” said netizen @Normankonrad.
“Oh em gee, ang hirap pumili (it’s difficult to choose)—Mar Roxas or Binay for Prez in 2016,” posted @noelsacay.
“You can’t deny a video. #Binay. Pero di pa rin ako maka move on sa payong. Pero in a serious note panakip yun sa kanya para di makita sa CCTV (I still can’t get over the umbrella thing. But on a serious note, it’s a good cover so he can’t be seen on CCTV),” said netizen @roldiegomez.
“I’m disturbed by the umbrella. Pinapayungan si Junjun Binay from what exactly (Junjun Binay is being protected from what exactly)? Moonlight?” netizen @PopiSunga said.
A netizen said the Binays could learn a lesson or two from actress Anne Curtis who apologized after it was reported on social media that she slapped show-biz colleagues after she had one too many.
“I think @annecurtissmith would have handled the #binay incident better. She certainly did with her club thing. She apologized, then moved on,” netizen @kutitots said..

Senator Grace Poe has topped a survey of potential presidential candidates in 2016, overtaking her close rival, Vice President Jejomar Binay, a Pulse Asia poll, which was released Thursday, showed. In the survey conducted from May 30 to June 5, Poe was chosen by 30 percent of the 1, 200 respondents nationwide while Binay only had 22 percent.

This is the first time Poe has topped the Presidential survey, though she has not yet announced her intention to run for President or any of her plans for 2016.

It was a big jump of 16 percentage points for Poe, who registered 14 percent in the March 2015 presidential preference survey of Pulse Asia. Binay fell by seven percentage points.
