The most recent social-climbing achievement of Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is the bit of schmoozing she’s been doing with celebrity activists George and Amal Clooney she exhibits in a recent tweet

Ironic that up for “discussion” with the power couple is the issue of “rule of law”. Perhaps Ressa and her new friends should take a bit of time to recall what rule of law really means to Ressa’s real boss.

Back in 2015, Mrs Clooney stepped up to assist in an initiative to expose the Aquino government’s human rights abuses. Interestingly the key perpetrator of the human rights abuses being investigated was no less than then Justice Secretary Leila De Lima herself…

De Lima’s initial violation back then was in defying the Supreme Court’s temporary restraining order on the travel ban against Arroyo. De Lima even risked disbarment for ignoring the highest court’s order. Senator Miriam Santiago likewise questioned De Lima’s action citing the DOJ had no legal basis to issue a watch-list order against Arroyo since there was no pending case against the former President and was only a respondent in a joint DOJ Comelec investigation on electoral fraud at that time.

Evidently, rule of law meant nothing to De Lima who defied an order issued by no less than the Philippines’ Supreme Court!

Suffice to say, Ressa and De Lima are real partners in crime considering both are currently in big trouble with the law. Nonetheless, both continue to be engaged in a mutual back-patting love-in likely to distract people from the real charges they face. Even from jail, De Lima is all praises for the failed “social news network” CEO

Well, whatever floats their boat, one would suppose. For now, there is no fooling anyone else other than the folks within their little chi chi cliques the hierarchy within which the are clambering upwards as a matter of desperate priority.
