An Incumbent Politician's Confusion Over Government System in the Philippines

Unsolicited decision of Drilon to respect the Ombudsman's decision over Napoles appearance in the senate is I think a not surprising choice of a greedy imbecile. This was the reason why I was so noisy during the impeachment of Renato Corona and Merceditas Gutierrez because although there might be some fault under their term (as if everyone in the politics don't play dirt), at least they cannot just be controlled or manipulated by the Executive branch, knowing that they are not an ally to the President. Now, which of the Legislative branch and Judiciary branch can you say is not an ally of the Executive branch? We all know that even the Judiciary branch, as showed by the palace through the Corona conviction can just be easily controlled and overpowered by the Executive branch and we also know that the executive branch can control most if not all the legislative branch through PDAF. Let it be known that those 3 branches of Government holds significant power, which means, THEY ARE ALL EQUAL. They all have their own checks and balances. So what happened now? Let's not confuse monarchy over our system. I have nothing good to write about our government system anymore.
