We beg to differ.

Wow, anak ng pork barrel talaga! Or so the expression goes if we are to believe recent revelations and allegations coming from the latest media circus that Janet Lim Napoles is a major ringleader in a scam that skims chunks of pork barrel funds off hapless Philippine congressmen. Where do these golden shavings go? Well, a lot of people have put the microscope (fairly or unfairly) on daughter Jeane Lim Napoles (‘Jeane’ spelt with only one ‘n’, by the way) whose lavish lifestyle in LA LA City, California is plastered all over her Tumblr profile.

I also came across and checked out a Vimeo upload of footage taken from her 21st birthday party before it had been either taken offline or set to ‘private’. Lots of beautiful people, expensive designer threads, and flowing champagne there dahlings. Surprisingly, no sign of Maurice Arcache — or Paris Hilton. But, boy, life’s indeed a beach for some people. So lavish the apparent lifestyle indeed, that it moved former National Press Club official Berteni ‘Toto’ Causing to shed any pretense of being an honourable “journalist” and speak his mind with Pinoy-style class. “This daughter of the “mother f*cker” should know she wears all the money out of the blood of poor Filipinos. Where is the conscience of this girl?” says Causing. Filipino self-styled “journalists” you gotta love ‘em. As social media baron George Takei would likely say, Ohh myyyy.

Kids are really something. You think your headaches are over once they’ve reached legal age. In the case of Napoles’s (alleged) Pork Empire, daughter Jeane turned out to be the weakest link in the purported porcine money train. I suppose, being 21, the wonders of social media served as the rocket fuel that boosted her to within radar range of media. Instagram photos, Tumblr and WordPress blogs (the latter set to ‘private’ too), and Vimeos of her birthday bash — they’re just too easy to mine for gold. Holy regret-that-timeline-update Batman! ABS-CBN News reports

[Janet] Napoles said her daughter’s Porsche was a gift when her daughter graduated magna cum laude.

Another Porsche was a gift during her daughter’s birthday, she added.

She said they also gave jewelry and expensive watches as gifts during her birthday.

Napoles denied that they own the 20 pieces of luggage at a Japan airport, but did not disown luggage that arrived in Manila.

She said they only had 5 pieces of luggage and a copier machine.

Napoles said it was their right to go shopping because they were earning money from their business ventures.

She also denied buying all of the items sold at a high-end bag shop.

Napoles insisted that their wealth is the the result of legitimate business.

It's a hard life!

It’s a hard life!

Interesting, though, that all eyes are focused on the poor little rich daughter of an alleged fraudista half a world away in LA LA Land, when one just need take a leisurely stroll along the airconditioned corridors of Chi Chi Makati. Over there, families window-shopping with entourages of maids tending to their brood while their chauffers nap in airconditioned SUVs idling in parking lots, are a common sight. Indeed, the Philippines is southeast Asia’s modern Babylon. There’s the story of has-been 1980s band Spandau Ballet being flown in to a hotel in Cebu to play for a debut party. Palatial homes behind enormous stone walls are a familiar tourist attraction within the country’s many fortified gated communities. Politicians regularly flaunt “unexplained wealth” (allegedly, of course) with impunity. Look no further than the James Bond of Mindanao, former Cagayan de Oro Representative Benjo Benaldo and his Brazilian bride, or Senator Lito Lapid’s wife’s run-in with United States Customs over almost USD160,000 in cash she allegedly attempted to smuggle into the country.

Let’s not act too shocked here, folks. These are people ordinary Filipinos elected to office. And even if it is a an alleged syndicate leader that is the centre of this on-going media circus, let’s not forget where the funds come from. Bad timing for the cause of the Philippines’ national heroes and cash cows — the Overseas Foreign Workers (OFW) community. Jeane Lim Napoles is the sister of Jo Christine Napoles who is vying for a House of Representatives seat under the banner of the OFW Family Club (OFWFC) party-list and reportedly counts “helping in the repatriation of distressed OFWs and has extensive work in the party-list’s advocacies” as part of her creds for the job.

Kawawa naman.

    Looks like this will be the next version of the Corona trials. Another off with her head scenario, obviously we are just hacking the leaves and leaving the roots intact but I’ll get what I’m given. If true, I hope Napoles be made another example or the very least an escape goat.

  • Nandi says:

    Do you really think the Philippine congressmen were “hapless”?

  • EdC says:

    How can the daughter Jeanne of Napoles be so ignorant of her moms unshady transactions with senators and other personnel in the house of congress, when she herself just keep receiving the goodwill of philippine tax incentive that was stolen from the Philippine coffers. Girl, it’s not your mom money, its stolen from the coffers of ordinary pinoy who did pay their taxes knowing it would go to good use for the needy recepients in the society. You just don’t give a damm where it came from. Well, here one truth that you should know, your mom is a crook and crook just need to be hang just like yourself, who has no empathy to where your resources has came from. I envy you in this coming months, for you will feel the grudge of every Filipino who would like you to be in jail just like your sweet crooked mom.

    a bitch is a bitch where it came from the roots. ang kapal ng mukha ng familiang ito talaga. ang sarap durhan sa mukha kapag nakita mo.

    • joel_delr says:

      You people really think that Napoles is the mastermind of the scam? Shame on you guys for not analyzing the real situation.

      “Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see”

      —from the movie Now You See Me.

      You people make it easier for the real mastermind to get away with your tax money. That and highlighting Enrile, Jinggoy, et al. as the guilty ones. You are being fooled.

      • OnesimusUnbound says:

        I agree. I don’t like how the media potray Mrs. Napoles as the mastermind in the PDAF Scam. She has an important role in revealing legally government officials involved in the scam, but she’s simply a gear in the machinery of multi-billion peso corrpution headed by corrupt government officials.

        • joel_delr says:

          The mainstream media acts the way they should, focusing on the sensational, to feed to the masa. Hate Napoles, tanda, pogi and sexy is in, it can be seen all over the internet. To the simplistic pinoy mind, that is all, they never care to go deeper. Kaya pagtapos ng senate hearing (kangaroo court) wala pa ring magbabago. Do they really think that these people will be punished accordingly?

          I mean we need to put some sense in the pinoy mind. Ang hilig sumunod sa uso, hindi na nag-iisip. The thinking filipinos are outnumbered by pinoy idiots and they are multiplying fast. This nation cannot get back on it’s feet with these liabilities.

      • chico ramirez says:

        Hey mister everyone one knows exactly whats going on ok..evryones involved including the Prez…and the maiin Gago here are the Bobotantes. It seems like you pity Janet here eh? as I told before shes a real pain in the ass bitch…ok.

        • joel_delr says:

          The way I see it, majority do not know this. Good if you know that, but hate will not solve anything, rather, properly inform your family and peers

          I do not feel any bit of pity towards her/them. I just do not feel comfortable highlighting her as the mastermind while in fact the majority of the people conducting the kangaroo court now are even more guilty than Napoles. And thy will be laughing at the pinoy idiots….all the way to the bank.

  • Jhon Doe says:

    Mahirap maluho sa nkaw na pera.@ JEAN NAPOLES

  • Pagardener says:

    The real Crooks are Enrile, Estrada and Revilla. Napoles needs to give back whatever money she stole.

    • Gogs says:

      So you really believe Noynoy/ Mar / De Lima would be the way they are if Napoles was going to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I personally believe that everybody is on it. Why you look at Enrile, Estrada and Revilla as the Holy Trinity of the pork barrel scam is a bit beyond me. It can not be that neat a package. Then again this country is filled with morons who believe that Noynoy was worthy of their vote solely because his mother died.
