welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
President Du30’s newly appointed Comelec Chairman to replace Andres Bautista, Sheriff Abass was previously a Commissioner of the Commission on Election as per the appointment made by the former President Benigno Aquino III. Abas is the nephew of Moro Islamic Liberation Front or MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal. Iqbal was under Bongbong Marcos’ scrutiny over his non-disclosure of his real name that was also a factor of the BBL halt.

Presidential Appointment

 

President Rodrigo Du30 appoints Commission on Elections commissioner Sheriff Abas as the new Comelec chairman. He replaces the controversial Andres Bautista. Abas’ appointment papers were signed on Wednesday, November 22. He will serve until February 2, 2022, which is Bautista’s remaining term.




Serving the Government All his Professional Life

A law professor, Abas worked as acting assistant regional director of the Civil Service Commission in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. This was until his appointment to the Comelec. He worked at the CSC from June 2007 until April 2015.



Appointee of Both Governments

Abas replaces Bautista who resigned and directed to make his resignation effective immediately by the President last October. Many Marcos loyalists’ eyebrows can raise on the fact that he was an Aquino appointee. Nevertheless, he is also an appointee of Du30 now. That should balance his loyalty.









Unbiased Decision

As a Comelec commissioner, he headed the packing and shipping committee. He should have full knowledge of how the handling and moving of the ballots from Bongbong Marcos’ key cities can be done effectively and safely for the electoral protest against Leni Robredo. Given his professional and personal affiliations, Marcos’ call for recount is the biggest test for his unbiased decision.

Bongbong Marcos Responds to Robredo: 8,000 Witnesses are Election Officers from BEI

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
If this will not make VP Leni Robredo ashamed of her camp, nothing would. Bongbong Marcos simply responds to her accusation by telling the truth. The witnesses are actually the election officers from the BEI and not registered voters. They are the watchers of the precincts. That made them more credible than ever.






Video by; Elena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos retaliates to Robredo’s accusation that he’s a liar by saying that his 8,000 witnesses are election officers who are members of the BEI and not registered voters. Therefore, they are in better position as such.




Marcos’ Lawyer Slams Robredo’s Camp

Marcos’ lawyer and spokesperson Vic Rodriguez slams Robredo’s camp for accusing them of “misleading” the Supreme Court (SC). This is allegedly by including “unregistered” voters in their list of proposed witnesses from Basilan, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao.




Board of Election Investigators

Rodriguez said that the investigators from the Board of Election or BEI are the witnesses. They are not the registered voters but the watchers. “Since the BEI members were physically present when the alleged ‘voting’ took place, they would be able to testify on whether the contested ballots had been pre-shaded or if an honest-to-goodness ‘election’ actually took place in Basilan, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao,” said Rodriguez.



Who are the Real Liars?

“We should allow the evidence to speak for itself. If and when that happens, the public can decide who the real liar is,” Rodriguez said. “All one has to do is to compare the signatures of the registered voters with the ‘signatures’ of the actual voters to realize that something fishy happened during the May 2016 elections. Now we know why BBM got zero votes in the Iglesia ni Cristo bailiwicks,” he added. Atty. Glenn Chong certainly has the basis of saying who the real liars are.









Technical and Forensic Examination

Rodriguez explains that this is why they want the PET to allow a technical and forensic examination of all election data in the 3 provinces. That should prove the authenticity of all the transmitted results. The PET has deferred action on this matter. Robredo should allow all evidence to surface if she is confident of her victory.

Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest NOT Enough to Get Rid of Smartmatic for 2019

Bongbong Marcos: Why Does Robredo Demands Ballot Soft Copies WITHOUT Paying Liability?

Liability





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos has opposed to Robredo’s Motion that she be allowed to secure soft copies of the printed ballot images. This from the ongoing Decryption activity of the COMELEC for Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. Marcos cannot figure out why Robredo suddenly wants them when she’s been opposing it ever since. She even did not help in paying the liability requirement.





Video by; News ThatMatter

[VIDEO]: Bongbong  Marcos said that election fraud can be verified in the technical examination.




No Liability Payment from Robredo

It will be recalled that the ongoing decryption activity was initiated solely by Marcos. He had to shoulder the decryption fee of Php 2.9M including an additional Php 2M for the initial supplies required by the COMELEC. Robredo did not join him in this undertaking. In fact, actively opposed the same as early as June 2017.




No Right to Demand

According to Marcos, since “Robredo did not contribute any share in the expenses and supplies, she should not be allowed by PET to obtain soft and even hard copies of the decrypted images of the ballots, election returns, audit logs and other relevant documents for all the protested clustered precincts of the pilot provinces.”



Just Shameless

Marcos has accused Robredo of cheating her way to the second highest office in the land. He lost to Robredo by a slim margin of about 260,000 votes in the 2016 national elections. Lawyer and I.T. expert Glenn Chong who has been involved in scrutinizing Smartmatic’s performance just refer to Robredo as a big liar.









Pointing Fingers

Recently, Robredo’s camp released a media propaganda accusing Marcos of forging the list of 8,000 election fraud witnesses mostly in his pilot areas.  The accusation boomeranged to her. ALDUB or Alyansang Du30-Bongbong or ALDUB members stood as witnesses to various incidents of election fraud in Basilan, Lamitan.

Bongbong Marcos: No One can Beat Filipino Talents in the World

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Philippines has improved its position in the 2017 World Talent Ranking report released by leading global business school International Institute for Management Development or IMD recently. It ranked 45th out of 63 countries surveyed. It is a big jump from No. 51 out of the 61 nations rated in 2016. This is the country’s’ strongest performance after dipping to No. 57 in 2015. This is not surprising for people who are followers of Bongbong Marcos’ speeches. Marcos had said it many times that no one can beat Filipino talents. The only problem is for the government to provide them with the world-class educational system, business infrastructure, and better opportunities locally.





Video by; Elena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: Despite low investments in education, the Philippines has improved its position in the 2017 World Talent Ranking report released by leading global business school International Institute for Management Development (IMD). Bongbong Marcos is indeed right as he stresses during the CEU Q and A Forum.




Top Ten Countries Enjoy Outstanding Education

The top 10 countries in this year’s World Talent Ranking are Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Sweden, and Luxembourg, in that order. These economies invest heavily to maintain outstanding educational and healthcare systems. They also offer a superior quality of life and provide attractive remuneration and opportunities for career advancement




Better Educational System Needed

The Philippines placed 60th in terms of public expenditure on education. The government spending is only 2.7 percent of its GDP for the sector. The country also scored low in the area of the pupil-teacher ratio in primary education and pupil-teacher ratio in secondary education. It ranks 62nd and 59th consecutively. It placed 51st in terms of female participation in the labor force.



Downside of Brain-Drain by OFWs

The best brains or professionals of the country benefit foreign countries that recruit them. The Overseas Filipino Workers have been one of the greatest pillars of the economy through their remittances to the family members left behind. So, it can happen that the best engineers, doctors, nurses and other experts leave the country for the greener pasture.









Government Priority

Bongbong Marcos is proud to say that in terms of capability, resourcefulness, ingenuity, and industriousness he has not seen anyone better than a Filipino. Marcos is a well-traveled politician given his family’s history. A Filipino can always survive with flying colors. So, to keep them in the country, better career opportunities with quality health care benefits must be in store for them. That is a priority of his leadership.

Loyalists Insist that Ferdinand Marcos is a Hero More than Cory and Ninoy

Hero





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Philippines marks the first year since the late President Ferdinand Marcos was buried a hero. This is upon the orders of the President following the law. The country recognizes the LNMB as its heroes’ cemetery and loyalists insist that he is indeed a hero. He has done a lot more than the so-called democracy icon, Cory Aquino and her rebel husband Ninoy.





Video by; flick-clicks

[VIDEO]: Former president Ferdinand Marcos was buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani with full military honors past noon last November 18, 2016.




Minority Senators are Against but not the Majority

In government, minority senators criticize Marcos’ LNMB interment. Supporters of the Marcos family retaliate with calls to “move on.” They inspire Filipinos to focus on the country’s current problems, Then, work with the President towards progress. The majority can only support the Filipino leader. No one can deny he was a soldier, former President, and saved the country from the terrorists and communism.




More Struggles after EDSA

Marcos’ declaration of Martial Law instilled discipline among Filipinos. The golden era is still fresh in the minds of golden-agers. This is despite the media propaganda painting it from white to black. Poverty and alleged human rights violations escalate especially during and after the two consecutive Presidential terms of the Aquinos. However, incompetent acts are publicized only during the term of Du30, a Marcos ally.



The President’s Support

Critics repeatedly point out that the Philippines is once more led by a strongman. They accuse President Du30 of unfounded things – just to discredit Bongbong Marcos who is his preferred Vice President. Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake awaits the date for the recount on his election protest against VP Leni Robredo.









Injustice to Bongbong Marcos

The “simple and private” funeral rites, as requested by the Marcos family, were carried out last year. This aims to give closure to his family and supporters. However, his detractors cannot accept that finally, the truth prevails that the Aquinos are not the heroes but the brilliant Marcos.
