Tingin ko it isn't so much the info na maraming gumagawa nito, kahit dati pa. But that with the rise of certain Bloggers, nawalan sila (yung mga trapo) ng control. Since many of the known Bloggers are clear about their political preferences, hindi ganun kadali sila ipatrabaho sa mga PR operators. Imagine any of us writing praises about Kiko or Bam or Risa?" as read in Trixie's post.<br /><br />According to her, Mocha is one of the bloggers who is not beyond the control of the 'traditional politicians' which makes them think that they should limit her influence to the people.<br /><br />However, Trixie claimed that they can no longer spin the DDS.<br /><br />"Too bad for these senators. Di na nila kaya i-spin ito as merely pambabalahura ng DDS. Bahagi ito sa pag distrunka ng mga infrastructure na sumusuporta sa mga elite at elitista.

Ang talagang ano ko dun is ‘yung use of the savings eh, too big. P3.5 billion is too big an amount for it not to have congressional approval," he added.<br /><br />During the Senate probe in December 2017, Aquino emphasized that he chose to use government savings from 2015&nbsp; that were set to expire by the end of that year as no funds have been allotted for the purchase of Dengvaxia as it has not yet been included in the Philippine National Drug Formulary at the time.<br /><br />On the other hand, the release of funding for the vaccine was criticized that it was allegedly released faster than the usual.<br /><br />However, Ejercito said the government officials need to answer the procurement of Dengvaxia since the manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur revealed the serious side effect of the vaccine especially among those who are not yet infected with dengue.<br /><br />“If you will based it on the timeline talagang na-establish that the procurement was done in haste. Those responsible should be made responsible in order for us to also get back the confidence on the DOH (Department of Health) and other government agencies,” Ejercito said.<br /><br />Senate Blue Ribbon committee chair Senator Dick Gordon previously said his panel may recommend charges to be filed against Aquino and other former government officials.<br /><b><br /></b><b>Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://politics.com.ph/walang-takas-no-saving-noy-dengvaxia-cases-ejercito/" target="_blank">Politics</a></b>Guide Me Howhttps://plus.google.com/114351973044873266631noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1209782771787581089.post-50359017870475401972018-02-09T11:19:00.000+08:002018-02-09T11:19:50.984+08:00WATCH: Projects under PNoy's admin in Sulu seem 'palpak', says ex-GovFormer&nbsp; Sulu Governor, Abdusakur Mahail Tan exclaimed the projects in his province installed by the administration of ex-President Benigno Aquino III were not beneficial to their constituents.<br /><div class="hidepic" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZTXPH1acMcE/Wn0TREU3pXI/AAAAAAAABGI/6HU361foOSghJsh6n6z2oiShhdvB6jxRgCLcBGAs/s1600/Mahail%2BTan%2Bto%2BPnoy.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="350" data-original-width="650" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZTXPH1acMcE/Wn0TREU3pXI/AAAAAAAABGI/6HU361foOSghJsh6n6z2oiShhdvB6jxRgCLcBGAs/s1600/Mahail%2BTan%2Bto%2BPnoy.jpg" /></a></div><script async="" src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> <!-- DAILYNEWSPH BEFORE ARTICLE --> <br /><ins class="adsbygoogle" data-ad-client="ca-pub-3650020912249118" data-ad-format="auto" data-ad-slot="1520050183" style="display: block;"></ins><script>(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script> <br />In an interview aired during PTVNews, Tan discussed unfinished hospital, storage plants, and housing projects for armed personnel in Sulu.<br /><br />"Dapat wag kang magalit sa mga complaints ko dapat maging thankful kasi hindi niya kaya na i monitor ang mga performance ng mga tao mo.
