This is Why the Marcoses have More Money than their Government Salaries

Some Filipinos accuse the Marcoses of stealing money from the coffer of the government. Little do they know that the national treasury does not have as much money as the Marcoses have access to. The corruption allegations against the parents of Bongbong Marcos do not have the logic. PCGG only calculates the salaries of the late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos. They then compare the total amount to the valuables they got from the family illegally. Looking at the windmill video of Ilocos Norte, There’s no doubt that brilliant minds can generate as much wealth as needed.

[VIDEO]: We faced a lot of challenges in the Windmill Farm Project but in the end, it was well worth it.

Finding the Right Spot

Bangui Wind Farm is a wind farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The wind farm uses 20 units of 70-metre (230 ft) high Vestas V82 1.65 MW wind turbines. It is on a single row stretching along a nine-kilometer shoreline off Bangui Bay. The area faces the West Philippine Sea. This part has the strongest wind that made it suitable for the project.

Choosing the Effective Partners

An Israeli group initially made a proposal to install a windmill in Bangqui. This is to generate sustainable electricity source for the province. Since 2003 when it is still unknown, Marcos made a study for the said project. He taps his connections that start from his golf buddies in putting up the groundwork for the windmill. The financial forecast is a bit tough but money comes when the initiative is beneficial to the people.

Perseverance Pays Off on the 3rd Time

The initial structures of the windmill cannot weather the storm two times. Only on its 3rd installation that it was finally successful. If Marcos does not have the perseverance on this trial and error project, they would not exist at this time. In another matter, the outcome of his electoral protest against the presumptive VP is now quiet. However, instead of rants, one can only hear the inspiration message s from him.

Department of Energy Input

The national mining law was the basis of Marcos in putting up the project. The Department of energy cannot even indicate its requirements because it was also the first time for them. This is very true with many government agencies. It takes a brilliant leader like Marcos to make a difference.

Sourcing for Financing Money

Sourcing for financing supports is the toughest stage of Marcos’ windmill project. However, he was able to pull this through. Influence and connections really play a significant part in its success. Leaders who can generate funds or money for local projects like this are more likely to drive the country to progress at a national level. However, people with crab mentality can only accuse such government servants as thieves because they do not have the ability to understand the source of funds.

Simon Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

Uncertainties on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest are not reason enough for the family to not do their purpose. The second son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake, Simon Marcos assures supporters that everything that they do is for their welfare. He can’t be grateful enough for their endless support all throughout these times. He said to his father that they are indeed lucky for many Filipinos are believing in them.

[VIDEO]: In Moments, Bongbong Marcos and second son, Simon express their gratitude to supporters. They stress the promise to return the favor through public service.

On the Back Seat

The second son of the VP hopeful always takes a back seat and greatly supports his older brother, Sandro Marcos’ endeavors. While doing so, he equips himself by taking gun training lessons in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida shooting that claims 17 lives. Taking a stand against gun control, he said. A photo shows that shows Simon being taught how to use an assault rifle with his band of bodyguards watching nearby graces social media. It’s empowering to know that you have the skills to protect yourself, he added.

Simon Marcos’ Foundation of Gratitude

Humility aside, Simon Marcos sees the importance of gratitude through his parents’ dealings with regards to the unfair accusations against his family. They are always thankful to their supporters. No below the belt attacks can be heard from their camps despite the massive fraud surrounding their patriarch’s defeat during the 2016 elections. He said that they won’t be where they are now if not because of the Marcos loyalists.

Political Future

Simon said that he’s glad that his parents let them be as they want. He may be reluctant to enter politics but he is game in all media exposures. In his early 20’s he already knew in his heart that they belong to politics right from the very start. He owes his humble character from his dad, he said.

Assurance to the People

As the middle child, Joseph Simon Araneta Marcos born on November 25, 1995, Simon has the best of both worlds. A peek into leadership and compassion from the heart. Politics is never his target at first. His steps follow his mother, Louise Marcos, a very successful corporate lawyer who wants to shy away from the political world. That even give Simon more credibility that when his father finally gets back his position, service to the people is the number one priority.

The Promise

The exact words of Simon; “Whatever we do is for the good of the people.” is reason enough for many Filipinos to join hands in fighting the election anomalies that are ongoing. By now, the majority already know who are the culprits for installing the wrong politicians into power. The generation of the Marcoses just gets better every time. They are truly the best choices for the common good.

Can the Supreme Court Ignore Atty. Glenn Chong’s Testimony on Marcos’ Missing Votes?

Supreme Court
By: Elena Grace Flores

One of the top candidates for Senator, Atty. Glenn Chong explains at the top of his lungs the obvious anomaly on the missing votes of Bongbong Marcos during the last election in 2016. The Comelec can only discredit him that he is lawyering for Marcos. However, only people who pretend to be deaf can’t understand the logic of his explanation. Will the Supreme Court ignore this? z

YouTube video byElena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: Who can Stop Atty. Glenn Chong in Locating Marcos’ Missing Votes?

Hot Senatoriable’s Advocacy

Hot senatoriable Atty. Glenn Chong discloses the whereabouts of Bongbong Marcos’ 241,712 voting shortage to win as VP. He said that the official votes from the Comelec server are short of around 241,000 votes. The result of municipal, district, regional and regional board of canvassers of 181 million for the 6 VP and 6 Presidential candidates must tally with that of the Comelec server. However, it so happens that the shortage of Bongbong Marcos to win as VP is more or less the same as the amount of the missing votes from the overall total.

Comelec is Not Listening

Instead of getting the data from Chong, Comelec ex-Chair Sixto Brilliantes tries to deny Chong’s claims. He has doubts of the figures that the young lawyer mentioned. Nevertheless, Chong blasts him saying that the poll body did not check the database. The team of Chong thoroughly made a careful examination and analysis of the available information. This is why the former Congressman of Biliran can immediately criticize them right at their faces.

Lawyering for Marcos?

The people can now understand why Chong’s detractors insist that he is Marcos’ lawyer. His knowledge about the massive 2016 election cheating is vital to the electoral protest of Marcos against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. In fact many experts speculate that the Supreme Court is quiet now because they need an unquestionable defense for their decision on the case which can only be favorable to the son of the late President, Ferdinand Marcos.

The People are Now Aware

It is evident online that the popularity of Chong surges high because of his passionate fight against election fraud. He accuses Comelec and Smartmatic of depriving the people on their choices during elections. This is why he runs for Senator. He said,that doing so is his last straw for his clean election advocacy. The people must be the ones to decide on his plight.

The Supreme Court is Under Close Watch

Despite the restlessness of Marcos’ supporters online, they can’t do anything but to wait for the Supreme Court to act on the electoral protest of Marcos. They are just waiting for the legislative branch to make a wrong move. For sure, the loyalists won’t take any unfair decisions sitting down. As Chong’s digital survey rate increases, the more Comelec fears for its possible demise.

Abby Binay Takes Care of Makati Residents’ Health but will She Look Beyond?

health
By: Elena Grace Flores

Makati Mayor Abby Binay runs head-on against her brother, Junjun during the upcoming midterm elections. Prior to that, she signs a specific MOA that allows patients from OsMak to be referred to MMC for specialized diagnostic exams, treatment, and even surgery. This gives beneficiaries of Makati Health Plus (MHP) Program or “Yellow Card”, full access to the best treatment and health care services in the city at no cost to them. It is also evident that there are Filipinos who seek her office for medical assistance. Individuals without voters’ certificate in the city find themselves on the first floor of the Makati City Hall. Those endorsed by a legitimate voter made it to the 21st floor. z

[VIDEO]: Mayor Abigail Binay ang dapat sa Makati!

Better Health Services for Makati Voters

Specialized diagnostic and medical services at the Makati Medical Center (MMC) are now open to residents of Makati. This is after Mayor Abby Binay signs a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between Ospital ng Makati (OsMak) and MMC recently. “By allowing OsMak doctors to refer cases to MMC, we are tapping their equipment, technology, and expertise. We are making the latest and most advanced diagnostic tools available to our Yellow Card holders. More importantly, they can avail themselves of life-saving surgical procedures and treatments which have yet to be made available at OsMak,” said Mayor Binay said.

Makati Med Services for OsMak Patients

Under the MOA, MMC accommodates an OsMak patient when there’s a referral or endorsement letter from the city-run hospital. This means that patients must still go to OsMak for an initial assessment. Then, they can avail of the services from MMC. The agreement also includes emergency procedures. Although OsMak endorsement is a requirement. The Osmak to MMC referral program runs initially for a year. This is subject to extension or renewal.

Possible Expansion of Makati’s Medical Services

MMC President/ CEO Dr. Maria Corazon Consunji signs the MOA on behalf of MMC. OsMak Officer-in-Charge and Hospital Director Dr. Vergel Binay, Makati City Administrator Claro F. Certeza, and MMC Medical Director Dr. Johnny Sison are the witnesses. This is somewhat a breakthrough in the city’s medical provision to its constituents. Makati Med’s medical standard says it all. However, there’s no mention yet about the continuation or halt of benefits provided to Makati’s sister LGUs ever since the end of Jojo Binay’s term as Vice President.

Extended Facility

Mayor Binay said the city continues to improve and modernize OsMak’s facilities. At this time, some equipment like CT Scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines may need repair or replacement. Doctors from OsMak can send patients to MMC for such procedures. Once they get the results, the patient will come back to OsMak for diagnosis and treatment.

Take it from Ben Tulfo

Ben Tulfo is right when he urges Junjun Binay to give way to Mayor Abby. Sure enough, recently the Binay patriarch endorses his youngest daughter to the post. He also runs alongside her as District 1’s Congress Representative. Jojo Binay also reminds the public that he is still the chairman of UNA, the political party that he created. The question is, will Abby Binay extend assistance to non-Makati residents just like his father? That would surely put her in the national level in the near future.

The Least Imee Marcos Can Do to Influence a Cash – Free Policy for Private Hospitals

cash
By: Elena Grace Flores

Filipino voters are already aware of the important criteria for Senators. They must have the capability to create laws that would upgrade the people’s lifestyle. Gov. Imee Marcos seems to have that capability. In fact, the cash or gold scandals that her family faces compliments that. She champions a project that further addresses the demand for nursing employment opportunities. The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) partners with BPO companies to provide online health care jobs to all registered nurses in the province. On top of that, she calls for all medicines to be exempted from value-added tax (VAT) as she pushes for a review of the cheaper medicines law. Marcos can certainly influence a remedy that would aid working Filipinos during medical emergencies. z

[VIDEO]: GANITO PALA KASAYA PAG SI MADAM IMEE MARCOS NA ANG NAGSALITA.

Oversupply of Nurses is Not a Problem with Imee Marcos

The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) in partnership with Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies takes measures to provide employment opportunities for Ilocano nurses. This is in line with Marcos’ commitment to generate more jobs for the Ilocanos. Her influence is definitely the key to its success.

Removal of VAT from Medicines

Marcos, who runs for a Senate seat said Republic Act 9502 or the cheaper medicines law fails to make medicines more affordable. This is because certain provisions in the law favor the interests of big pharmaceutical companies in the country. Ten years after the law passes, the prices of medicines, particularly for critical diseases and illnesses remain exorbitant. She said that to drastically bring down the prices of medicines it is crucial to remove the VAT from all medicines.

The Failure of the Aquino Administration

In fairness of the Aquino administration, it launches the Universal Health Care (UHC). It gives provision to every Filipino of the highest possible quality of health care. That should be accessible, efficient, with fair funds or assistance, and appropriate for the public”. The former President puts ita availability and accessibility friendly for all Filipinos. His government aims to ensure that every Filipino shall receive affordable and quality health benefits. This should provide adequate resources – health human resources, health facilities, and health financing. But it fails greatly because of the poor mentality influence. Public hospitals are crowded. PhilHealth can only provide maximum of 20% off hospital bills. On top of that, private hospitals can be rude to patients when they run out of their insurance coverage.

Cash – Less Deals with Private Hospitals

The workforce needs quality health care assistance. This is the key to a progressive economy or population in general. A serious illness must not cripple a promising individual. Since the policies of private hospitals are not in line with the government’s provision, a medical funding facility for this purpose is necessary. This would allow cash – less deal with the private hospital involved.

Political Provisions during Elections

Politicians would surely allocate funds for medical purposes during elections in the Philippines. Although they are mediocre, at least they exist. However, Filipinos deserve more than that. A country can’t be powerful when a mere disease can make them bankrupt when it strikes. Australia and England, for example, accommodate expensive health procedures to their citizens with money for free. The government owes the progress of a nation to its people.
