(Update September 3, 2013: Before you read this blog, note that I have CHANGED my mind about “Anonymous Incorporated”. I think this group has a HIDDEN AGENDA, and that is ultimately to DESTABILIZE the PNoy Administration. They do this by using the Napoles Incident as POLITICAL CAPITAL to spread negativity on the current administration. To know more about this, you can follow my Facebook Page about this organization: Beware of Anonymous Incorporated)
A blog entitled, “Janet Napoles’ Pork Barrel Scam: Theft from a Nation?” is making waves not because of the blog itself, but because of the anonymous commenters on the blog. You can access the blog here: http://momandpopmoments.com/2013/07/31/janet-napoles-pork-barrel-scam-theft-from-a-nation/
I found the comments to be absolutely intriguing, but it deserves a better format so people can appreciate it better, hence I have selected and collected only those that I feel are the best among them. The comments show the POSSIBLE political connections and machinations on how the Napoles family got so influential, and got so rich. Do the country a service, and SHARE this to let as many people know about how these individuals are robbing the Filipino people blind.

Janet Lim Napoles has strong ties before with the late Emilia Boncodin, DBM Secretary. Emilia is the one that keep Janet in the loop whenever a budget or SARO is approved and to which senator or congressman.
Gringo Honasan is a dear friend of Janet’s husband, Jimmy Napoles. I was surprised when I read somewhere online when Honasan was interviewed and he said that he doesnt know the Napoles family.
During the coup in Cory’s time, Jimmy napoles was driving a tank on the way to camp crame when he’s tank was hit by a mortar.Jimmy is operating the .50 caliber machine gun and the soldier driving the tank died during the blast. Jimmy survived and was jailed along with Honasan. If you can get clear photos of Jimmy Napoles online, you will see that part of his face and his arms show burn marks.
Their wealth started to build up during the late 90′s when they engaged themselves with mayors based in zamboanga to use them as a front for a Foundation that will implement projects or deliver farm materials. With connections at COA, they were able to arrange “completed projects” without delivering anything. They established JLN group of companies sometime in 2000 and they moved to their new office from AFPOVAI to Discovery Suites on the 25th floor.
Soon enough, they were able to develop deep connections with more legislators in congress and numerous senators. What JLN Group Of Companies do and their sub-companie, Jo-Chris Trading (named after their eldest child, Jo-Christine “Neneng” Napoles) – they use their foundations as the implementing agency for the funds of congressmen or senators. You see, congressmen and senators have budget, PDAF or the “pork barrel”, but these politicians do not have direct access to their funds and they can never touch it. So what they do is the politicians will create a project (common one is “fertilizer distribution” to farmers) and will ask DBM to set the budget. Then, there will be a public bidding to be held by DAR. The outcome of the bidding is already fixed and it’s Napoles foundation wins. The fund or SARO will be released through Janet’s foundation and the congressmen/senators will ask 70% of the whole amount. So if the project is 10M, Janet will give 70% of that. Usually Janet’s nephew, John Francisco Lim is the courier of the money, they will meet at Podium or at a parking lot. The money are stored in plastic bags or paper bags.
So, whatever is left from the budget, 30% goes to Janet. They usually cash-in the cheque they get from DBM at Landbank in Greenhills and the manager there is part of Janet’s payroll. Janet also need to pay the inspectors from COA and whoever is involved in DAR.
This is their workflow.This is what they do for more than a decade. This is how the senators and congressmen make money. This is why theses politicians have so much and working class filipinos almost have nothing. This is not only Janet’s fault. The greediness of the senators and congressmen are the driving point that keeps this system operating. It is also amazing that if Janet’s family and her company goes into trial, the people who will try them – judges, senators, congressmen, are also part of this. I fear for the life of Benhur and Merlina as whistleblowers. Soon enough they will die. The people of the philippines should protect them. NBI or the witness protection program cannot do anything about it. Because they are keeping the whistleblowers alive for their own use only. Once Janet give payments to the NBI and once Revilla, Honasan, Arroyo, Pichay, Ducut, Pineda, Lim, Estrada, Soto, Lapid, and almost all the congressmen who were in post for the past decade, step in – there’s nothing benhur or merlina can do. They are as good as dead by now.
Please post this on your social media and share it to the world. It is time to stop this madness and remove the pork barrel and protect benhur and merlina.

No, i will never talk to philippine media. local media is rubbish. we can ask noli de castro about that. and i am very sure that he too will say, “i havent heard janet napoles or met her before…” Of course, why would he tell the world that he knows janet after he earned hundrer millions of pesos through her company? We can also ask noli who lives in his villa in tagaytay highlands. Oh, i forgot, i think it’s one of his mistresses.
nevertheless, the napoles has been moving their money the past few weeks so most of their money are not in the country anymore. the people need to ask the female manager at metrobank binondo, she’s related to janet napoles brother, ronald “bullet” francisco lim. “Bullet” is also one of the incorporator’s of janet’s countless foundations. the people of the philippines should also ask the manager at landbank greenhills. Maglanque holds a post before at DOTC, and the Napoles’ made a lot of money by providing countless transactions through DOTC using numerous congressmen and senators between 2002 – 2011. Zenaida Ducut, previous congresswoman in one of the provinces in Pampangga made a killing through Janet’s company. They also have strong ties with the Ampatuans in the south and yes, they also benefited from Janet’s company. Previous PNP chiefs during the Arroyo administration also used JLN Corporation as the foundation to supply communication radios initially valued at Php5,000 only to be listed in the receipt given to COA valued at Php65,000 each.
Let’s stop and reflect, if the local media publishes these facts, do you think that the current government CAN do something? NO. even if noynoy wants to punish Janet and even if he’s the president of the country, he can only do as much because our constitution does not allow the president to tackle these crimes. because that is not included in his job description. It’s a pity that people accuse the president of doing nothing. Yes, he cannot do anything about it because our law doesnt allow him too. You want something to be done with this issue? If noynoy declares martial law and will have complete authority over these issues, yes, he can hang all the senators and congressmen. But will noynoy declare martial law? No. not because the people of the country doesnt want to – its because noynoy wont bring back the years that caused his father’s death.
The current situation in the country has reach an impasse. unless the people do something about this, we will remain right where marcos left off – corruption everywhere and escalation of poverty.

I saw an interview of janet, jimmy and two of their children, jo-christine and his younger brother. The interview was conducted by Korina Sanchez. I was amazed how Korina played on the set and in a very sublime manner, projected the Napoles family as a victim.
Let me explain.
Korina is married to Mar Roxas. Mar is from Iloilo and he has a cousin, Johnny Roxas. Johnny stands 6’2, fair, brown hair and brown eyes. Johnny is a good looking male and a mestizo. Johnny used to work at JLN Corp. and he used his connections through Mar when he was still “Mr. Palengke.” Johnny earned significant amount of money by closing deals and getting the SARO of some congressmen and mayors and governors with the help of Mar. But Johnny had a fallout with Janet when some some cash commissions were not equally divided to him. He was also hoping to have a Mercedes Benz as a incentive from one of his successful transactions from a congressman based in Samar, bur Janet failed to deliver the car to him. Johnny soon left the company upset. Nevertheless, Johnny left JLN with few million pesos richer, and Mar Roxas a few million above 10M richer. Johnny Roxas became visible again in the political arena when he joined the campaign camp of Fernando Poe Jr. He was always visible on TV appearances and newspaper photos sitting or standing beside or behind Poe. With this said, Mar Roxas has ties with Napoles and that explains the interview with Korina that appears to be biased with the Napoles’. And you now know the reason why.

I would like to contribute to this blog.
The Napoles speak fluent Chabakano.
They are rich because they do business in both sides – opposition and coalition. They started poor in the 70s – 80s selling packed lunch (similar to jolly-jeep) at the premises of AFP since Jimmy is a Marine. Officer.
I don’t have a single clue where the f*ck they get the idea that they are into the coal mining business.
Janet and the female owner of AM-Europharma are BFFs. That explains their mansions in Laguna because AM-Europharma’s factory is in Laguna.
Eddie Badeo is effing naive. Everything she said is spot on and correct. But, all martyrs die in the end.
There are three siblings in the Lim family, Ronald Francisco Lim, Janet Francisco Lim, Reynald “Jojo” Luy Lim. “Jojo” is a half brother and Benhur Luy is related to Reynald. That’s why they could not kill Benhur when they still have a chance. But now they all wish him dead.
Jo-Christine Napoles is a graduate from St. Benilde. Her brother, James Napoles is also from Benilde.
Benhur is as guilty as Janet – they both became rich helping politicians steal from us.
Merlina Sunas is still poor and helpless. Janet used her all throughout these years. Save Merlina and let Benhur die.
Patayin na natin lahat ng mga kongressman at senador! at bantayan na ang mga airport dahil tumatakas na sila isa isa!
