Philippine President Rodrigo Du30 hails the late President Ferdinand Marcos as a hero for many Filipinos. He stresses this during the former leader’s 100th birth anniversary. The opposition takes it as a campaign to rehabilitate the image of Marcos to help Bongbong Marcos’ political comeback. The younger Marcos’ election protest against VP Leni Robredo now results in a recount on March 19. He earlier discloses evidence of massive digital frauds. Now Atty. Romulo Macalintal appears to be lawyering for the Comelec. He claims that the squares are a new feature – that the parties apparently know of. He refers to the presence of the squares in the ballot images. Marcos’ spokesperson then dares him to produce any briefing made by the Comelec on the presence of the squares. Macalintal has not replied up to this time of writing.

[VIDEO]: DUTERTE PINAGTANGGOL SI FERDINAND MARCOS SA BUMABATIKOS SA KANYA! “HE WAS THE GREATEST PRESIDENT”
Duterte, who faces the same accusations of major human rights abuses as Marcos, is a friend of the Marcos family. His detractors said that he plays a key role to bolster their efforts to regain the top echelons of political power. Marcos stepped down in 1986 to avoid bloodshed during the EDSA revolution. He died in exile in Hawaii three years later after the late President Cory Aquino disallowed him to return to the Philippines. He wanted to explain the alleged hidden wealth but Aquino refused. His enemies continue to accuse him of embezzling billions of dollars during his rule. That turns out to be a security seal for the welfare of humanity. Now, they aggressively launch a black propaganda against Du30 for the same reasons.
The President’s Dare to Resign
In October last year, Duterte dared Sereno and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales to resign with him, saying the two had allowed themselves to be “used” in the corruption allegations against him. Sereno is battling an impeachment complaint that alleged she had undeclared wealth and betrayed public trust, among others. House lawmakers are expected to resolve within the month if there is probable cause for her impeachment.
Supreme Court CJ can be Fired
Leyte Rep. Vicente Veloso, vice-chairman of the House Committee on Justice, said Sereno only submitted one of her Statements of Assets, Liabilities and Net worth (SALNs) to the Judicial and Bar Council when the panel was deliberating on the new Chief Justice in 2012, despite a notice from the council directing applicants to submit all of their SALNs. A decision from the Supreme Court in 1963 established that “if at the time of appointment, petitioner did not have necessary qualifications for the office…then he did not have the right to be there,” said Veloso.
VP Electoral Protest Update
Marcos’ lawyer emphasizes that Macalintal is just being consistently untrue or he had a special briefing from Comelec exclusively for the then ruling Liberal Party. Either way, the existence of the square is an unlawful insertion and alteration of the digital image. Their excuses are so feeble and insulting to the intelligence of the Filipino electorate as it provides them too little too late, said Atty. Rodriguez. The squares should not be there because, during the source code review, no boxes were shown. If ever, the boxes must have been added after the source code review which is against the law, he added.
