Areglado lahat: Tom Villarin points out puppet gov’t under Duterte


What the President wants, he gets.

Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin lamented the collapse of check and balances among branches of government, which he saw at work over the past week.

The politiko pointed out how the stars have been aligning to accommodate the whims of President Rodrigo Duterte, may it be via the recalled amnesty for Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and his people in the Supreme Court (SC).

“The dismissal of the impeachment complaint simultaneous with the dismissal of the TRO (temporary restraining order) in the Supreme Court filed by Sen Trillanes shows an uncanny tit-for-tat exchange of goodwill between the pro-admin House and a compromised SC,” Villarin said.

Is it pure coincidence? This solon says not.
