members of Team Binay explain why VP Binay withdrew from the Binay-Trillanes debate

November 11, 2014 Leave a comment

first off, we are NOT inventing any of these. these are all real and published by Philippine media. we have here statements from two of the four spokespersons of VP BInay – Gov Jonvic Remilla and Rep Toby Tiangco and daughter of the VP, Senator Nancy Binay.

a fourth one is from VP Binay himself.

each one gave a different explanation for the withdrawal from the debate by VP Binay. nothing matches, not even remotely. not even his two spokespersons, Remulla and Tiangco had the same story and explanation. having things like this one is strange to have in presidential campaign.

Binay camp: Debate with Trillanes a ‘disservice’ to ‘Yolanda’ survivors

Cavite Governor Juanito Victor “Jonvic ” Remulla

MANILA, Philippines – A spokesperson of Vice President Jejomar Binay said Tuesday that the vice president cancelled the scheduled November 27 debate with Senator Antonio Trillanes IV upon realizing that it is a “disservice” to the survivors of Super Typhoon “Yolanda.”

Cavite governor and Binay’s spokesperson on political affairs Jonvic Remulla said that the vice president is prioritizing “recovery over bickering.”

“The Vice President realized that engaging a debate with Senator Trillanes is a disservice to the millions who still have to recover from the Yolanda tragedy. Now is not the time for talk but for action. The Vice President is prioritizing the country over self, recovery over bickering, the people over himself,” Remulla said in a statement.

It’s ‘answered prayer,’ says Nancy Binay

It’s a welcome relief for the Binay family, says the senator

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Nancy Binay said she is relieved that her father,Vice President Jejomar Binay, backed out of the debate with Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

“This is an answered prayer and a welcome relief for the family, although we expect that our detractors will continue to gloat [over] the situation,” she said in a statement on Tuesday, November 11.

“In the light of early attempts to set the stage for the upcoming event as unfavorably biased for Vice President Jejomar Binay, we respect the Vice President’s decision to beg off from the scheduled debate,” she added.

Senator Binay was against the debate from the time it was proposed. “Medyo hindi rin ako sang-ayon sa debate. Sa unang statement ko nga (I’m not in favor of the debate. Like I said in my first statement), why should he stoop down to the level of Senator Trillanes?” she told reporters on Monday. (READ: Nancy Binay: VP ‘real underdog’ in debate with Trillanes)

Trillanes is among 3 senators leading a probe into allegedly overpriced infrastructure projects that Binay initiated when he was mayor of Makati City.

Saying he’s been prejudged, Binay refused to attend the subcommittee hearings. His camp later challenged Trillanes to a one-on-one debate, which Trillanes accepted.

The Vice President also snubbed the invitation of the Senate Blue Ribbon committee to answer allegations raised in the subcommittee. – Carmela Fonbuena/Rappler.com

Tiangco: People want to see Binay work, not debate

UNA official elated over VP’s decision to back out of debate

MANILA – United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) interim president Toby Tiangco was elated upon learning that Vice President Jejomar Binay has backed out of a debate with Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

Speaking to ANC, Tiangco said he was surprised to hear that Binay changed his mind about engaging Trillanes in a debate.

He said he talked to Binay on Monday and the Vice President was keen on pushing through with the debate.

He said a meeting with the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) was also scheduled today.

Tiangco is happy with the Vice President’s decision, noting that he has always been vocal about his opposition to the debate.

“Magkausap pa kami kagabi ng mga 9:30 [pm], wala naman siyang sinasabi na magba-back out siya dun sa debate. But of course, I will not hide my happiness… Alam niyo naman na very vocal ako against the debate,” he said.

“Ako natutuwa kung hindi matutuloy because I already explained that people didn’t vote for the vice president to defend himself. Ang gusto nila makita yung bise presidente na nagtatrabaho,” he added.

Binay backs out of debate with Trillanes

MANILA, Philippines—Vice President Jejomar Binay has backed out from his scheduled public debate with Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, saying he does not want to appear “oppressive and opportunistic.”

Binay made the announcement during his 72nd birthday celebration at the Philippine Marines headquarters in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.

“It’s final, it’s final. My decision won’t change,” Binay said in Filipino during an interview aired on radio.

Binay explained that he doesn’t want to look like he is taking advantage of Trillanes, who is not a lawyer unlike him.

“Ang dahilan ko mga kababayan e dahil sa marami na akong naririnig na ako ay ganito…ako ay mahusay, ako ay naging debater, ako ay abogado, e sobra na ‘tong mga sinabi niyang ganyan na kumpirmadong sinabi niya, e ayaw ko naman hong maging..ang pagkakalilala niyo sa aking mga kababayan ay mapang-api, mapagsamantala…so tama na po ‘yun,” he said.

(The reason why I am withdrawing is I have heard comments that I am already a good and experienced debater that comes with my being a lawyer. He has also been saying things as if they were already confirmed. I don’t want to appear oppressive and opportunistic, so I am backing out.)

binay lawyer faints during press conference – overwhelmed by truth or untruth?

September 25, 2014 1 comment

is this some kind of omen for vp jojo binay? binay’s lawyer faints as she is explaining the SALN of the vice president to the media. the whole thing was captured by the tv cameras. is there a some kind of feng shui or some cosmic interpretation of this event? surely someone fainting while explaining something has to have some meaning.

or maybe she was just hungry and thirsty that her body gave up on her. lets all call our favorite manghuhula.

lesson on branding : the rise and fall of “Brand Binay”

September 25, 2014 Leave a comment

this picture shared on twitter caught my attention – mayor junjun binay has a big letter “B” on  his barong. this is very close to a literal branding but what caught my attention was how the binay family has been brandishing and actually capitalizing on the “Binay brand” or their family name in politics.

the binays, from jejomar (vice president now), his wife elenita, children junjun, nancy and abigail are all on politics. jejomar was mayor of makati, elenita his wife took over as mayor and his son junjun is now mayor of makati. abigail is  a congresswoman of makati and nancy is now a senator.

nancy in particular used “brand binay” in her campaign for the senate. she was in fact using that term precisely “brand binay” during interviews during that time. this TV ad of nancy expressly states that “mundo ng pagilingkod na namana sa kanyang ama na si jojo binay”.

read here:  https://2010presidentiables.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/senatoriable-nancy-binays-tv-ad-empty-promises-glorified/

the big letter “B” on the shirt of mayor junjun binay looks like a continuation of this strategy of capitalizing on the “Binay brand”.

branding in marketing terms can be a very powerful thing. the brand is one of the most precious and tightly guarded property by companies. we know the power of brands – Coca Cola, BMW and Apple to name a few. these are brands that command and dispense to consumers a lot of goodwill. like for Apple, in the last few decades, anything that Apple launches into the market are automatically seen as high quality, leading and highly desirable.

it can be argued that nancy binay may have won the senatorial race on that basis. she was an unknown in politics before her senatorial run and didn’t even hold any meaningful public office before that but she won it just the same. nancy before her senatorial run not having a local (makati) and specially a national presence in politics.

the letter “B” in mayor junjun binay’s shirt can very well stand for “Binay”. it can also stand for “building”. we asked over at twitter what other words can the letter “B” stand for and these were the replies:

“brand binay” may have meant as “public service” or even as “ganito kami sa makati” (another tv ad) but that brand may have taken different meanings now.
