PADERANGA & CO.: NOYNOY’S LIST OF INTELLECTUAL PROSTITUTES

May 8, 2010

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!

In previous articles I tackled topics of (a) ‘crocodiles in Noynoy’s camp’ and (b) economists serving as consultants who crafted Noynoy’s agenda of governance (see: IKONOKLAST: http://erleargonza.blogspot.com).

I articulated in the first article that I almost supported Noynoy, driven as I was by the passion of post-Cory burial’s grief. In the months of September-October 2009, I began to uncover information about the people who were behind Noynoy’s candidacy, particularly the paid experts doing his agenda.  

Added to the political factions and Kamag-anak Inc., the crocodiles surrounding Noynoy—who are in fact calling the shots in his candidacy and campaign—seem just too many to behold. By late October I simply lost my enthusiasm for supporting Noynoy and the Yellow Shirts, who to my mind were up to amassing largesse once they sit in power.  

Words reached my ears about paid experts who were tasked to write the agenda of Noynoy and Erap (Estrada). An old co-teachers’ advocate from the UP NCPAG intimated to me that he was also among those who were being invited, but declined to do so, and instead referred experts he knew to the Noynoy camp. A lady professor from UP SOLAIR flatly told me that she was tasked to write the social agenda for Erap, and jokingly told me that “maybe you will draft the agenda for Noynoy or whoever.”  

Quite recently, a group of economists openly endorsed Noynoy Aquino, an eventuality that has titillated the Noynoy supporter. Little do the same supporters know that the same experts were in fact involved in drafting Noynoy’s agenda, with a quid pro quo of taking the juicy positions and amassing largesse in the event that Aquino wins the presidency.  

I wasn’t surprised at all to find out that the endorser economists—who made it appear that they are doing the endorsement as independent intellectuals—are in fact an entourage of experts with a track record of intellectual prostitution (see my article “Paderanga, Economists: Noynoy’s Intellectual Prostitutes). 

The list is reproduced below, so people will know the WHO IS WHO in the line up of bureaucrats and advisers that must be zealously guarded in case Aquino wins the presidency. This is just a preliminary list, mind you. The factions of Prof. Mario Taguiwalo (UP School of Economics), former trade Sec. Purissima, and Albay Gov. Salceda (he’s bringing his own coterie of stooges) are not included in the list. 

One would wonder how poverty can be alleviated and hunger be eliminated in case that the crony economists will take over the bureaucracy. As I said earlier, the leading economists (contained in the list) were responsible for liberal economic reforms—imposed by the IMF-World Bank Group—that led to more poverty, hunger, degradation of health services, and inequalities. 

The likes of Alba and Paderanga served government before, and facts are so glaring about the ballooning of poverty with their kinds at the helm of state agencies. They fattened the purses of Big Capitalists & Landlords, their purses got fattened by the same capitalist-landlords, they sit in the board of the big business cronies, and what business have they eradicating poverty?

CRIMINALIZE FRAUDULENT POLLS SURVEYS

May 7, 2010

 Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 Poll experts are intellectual prostitutes. This is the most precise attribution we can give to the “experts” who conducted the poll surveys in this country, and probably in other countries as well. It is now turning out that they are experts in doctoring data and are in league with the criminal forgers at Recto Avenue in old Manila. 

As it now appears, poll surveys are not exactly meant to reflect the state of voters’ perception at the time they were conducted. The PulseAsia, for instance, is owned by Raffy Lopa, a Kamag-anak Inc. (blood relative) of Noynoy Aquino who is running as a presidential candidate for the Liberal Party.

 Can we expect fair game from the poll survey companies, notably the PulseAsia and Social Weather Stations? Now that it is becoming much clearer that the surveys rig public perception results to favor certain personalities and political blocs, we may rest assure of the result of the coming 2010 elections. 

We do wonder whether the research personnel of the said companies did conduct field work in the other regions of the country for data gathering. It is getting clearer that no such actual field works are done, the same field works largely concentrated in metropolitan Manila. 

The survey results are purely forged data. Being disinformative, the results are pure insidious LIES. 

It may be high time for the state to investigate dubious researches, with the maximum aim of criminalizing fraudulent research. The public better raise eyebrows whenever the SWS and PulseAsia publish results from hereon.  

Observably, commercial sex workers sell only their bodies for money, while intellectual prostitutes sell their souls to the highest bidders. Thus said, those intellectual prostitutes are as obnoxious as filthy swine.

JESUIT FASCISM SAVES FACE OF PLAGIARIZING CHAIRMAN PANGILINAN

April 18, 2010

Prof. Erle Frayne D. Argonza
University of the Philippines

Good day, fellows!

Just a couple of days back, the chairman of the Ateneo De Manila University’s Board of Trustees, Manny Pangilinan, resigned from the chairmanship. The reason: he delivered a speech in his beloved alma mater in which he was found out later to have plagiarized parts of his read speech from the lecture notes of globally famous personalities.

Accepting responsibility for his action, Pangilinan resigned from the chairmanship post. The Jesuit directors/executives of the school refused to accept the resignation, for one reason or another.

Knowing the fascistic inclination of the Jesuits, their Order being an institutional oligarchy in the Philippines, I wasn’t surprised at all that the descendants of the Jesuit assassins would save the face for their equally oligarchic alumnus. It doesn’t matter if the university will be a laughing stock in the academic community for its reputation as churning a ‘cut & paste’ constituency.

I still recall well that in the early 1970s, the Jesuits expelled faculty members for their overt radicalism. Amid the noble behavior of those faculty members, they were ordered to resign en masse!

Among those affected professors who quickly left Ateneo at that time was Bienvenido Lumbera, who later brought enormous honor for his country for winning the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Literature. A retired professor at the University of the Philippines’ (Diliman) Department of Filipino, Prof. Lumbera is also a holder of the very prestigious National Artist award.

I wonder what the likes of Ka Bien (as we fellow advocates fondly call him) have for the Ateneo/Jesuits at this moment. If they’re exhibiting the last laugh today, I wouldn’t be surprised at all.

The world is simply fed up with the fascistic behavior of oligarchs, bureaucrats, politicians, bishops, and those who carry their weight around like overmasters. Exceedingly intoxicated with power, the fascists like those smug & arrogant Jesuits are getting to be squeezed in tinier spaces year by year, scorned and alienated for their dangerous sociopathy.

What else can we describe the 60+ professors of Ateneo who signed a manifesto condemning the Jesuitical leniency on the plagiarizing Pangilinan? These are over five (5) dozens of rational minds inside the oligarchic Jesuit school, and it pays to heed their calls that re-echo those of their own colleagues who were expelled in the early 1970s.

Whether the turn of events is a ‘history repeating itself’ remains to be seen. What is sure for now is that the expulsion of the professors in the early 70s was a tragedy, while the second occasion of professorial protest could be a comedy of sorts.

At least the protest noise is a benign heraldry that the university mentors are not some complacent Herds who couldn’t boldly speak about the travesties and injustices committed within their campus. And I am supportive of their protestations and demands, for I clearly recognize the wisdom and justness of their cause.

But Jesuit arrogance, both individual and fraternal, is subcultural and it flows right into the sinews and veins of the fascistic Father (Jesuits). If indeed the protesting mentors of the ADMU will want to de-link from the pugnacious subculture so mentioned, they should better resign en masse.

Otherwise, without a near-ferment caused by the plagiarism fiasco, the protestation will simply be a zarzuela (stage play) concluding anti-climactically. The fat-paying professors will end up as subject of guffaws whose cowardice redounds to kowtowing to their Jesuit paymasters.

In the end, the public will perceive the ADMU as (a) cut & paste university with (b) a cut & paste studentry, (c) cut & paste faculty, and (d) cut & paste Jesuit owner-managers. So there goes the comedy of errors, as history repeats itself.

“In the name of the Father (Jesuit Order), the Son (alumni/constituency), and of the Holy Ghost (clerico-fascism). Amen.”
