The late former Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos died in exile in Honululu at 72 without trial on the alleged 100B US$ hidden wealth – that up to now, people are still begging for its return from the son, Bongbong Marcos. Not to mention blames for human rights violations allegedly happened during martial law. It is just surprising that outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay who was a human rights lawyer at that time now is fully supportive of the younger Marcos after experiencing the operations of the Aquinos who were staging the media propaganda against Marcos.
Realizations really came the hard way for Jojo Binay – when the effective media propaganda political weapon of the Aquinos’ was turned into him – to rob him of his chances in winning the 2016 Presidential election.
Binay’s support of Marcos is even more enhanced by the sensitive dealing of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte towards Bongbong. At one point, the new President would not even want to give a cabinet position to Bongbong’s rival, Leni Robredo of the Liberal Party who won the Vice Presidency amidst fraud allegations – so as not to hurt his feelings.
Is the Binay-Bongbong-Duterte alliance clear now? Many might not accept this but things happen for a reason. If Philippines is destined for greatness, then many great people will make sacrifices just to make that aspiration come true – because the majority obviously lack the discretion. With regards to BBM as heir of Media Propaganda Lies? Duterte is putting an end to it and it’s happening right now.
