Leni Robredo vowed to face the challenges even if she doesn’t have as much money as her rival, Bongbong Marcos. This obsession has been detected ever since she decided to run for Vice President in the 2016 elections. The pronouncement was made in reference to the electoral protest filed by Marcos against her – to the point of madness.

[VIDEO]: Vice President Leni Robredo vows former Senator Bongbong Marcos would not get the second highest position in the country despite criticism, impeachment threats, and an election case against her.
She Ran for VP to Block Marcos
Robredo admitted that one of the very reason why she ran under the Liberal Party is to fight an alleged impending Marcos return. This is like saying that she agreed to be a political prostitute just to destroy Bongbong Marcos. Her obsession with Marcos has been explained by psychiatrists in the past. That is really driving her crazy and she must get professional help so as not to worsen her situation.
Bongbong Marcos is not his Father
Marcos is the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos who was wrongly accused of perpetrating abuses, including human rights violations. Just like the president these days, he becomes the subject of accusations when killings in any form happen. The question is, what has it got to do with Bongbong Marcos?
Unpaid Marcos Dues?
Robredo while stressed out amidst impeachment threats on top of the electoral protest, made the remarks as her response to a student who asked her opinion on the ongoing election protest. Robredo said that she is saddened by efforts that Marcos’ followers exerted to allegedly discredit her. She pointed out, again and again, the speculated unpaid dues she assumed that were incurred by his family. There’s no court yet that issued a verdict that they really stole money from the country’s coffers.
She rewind again her dismay on Marcos who she thinks is using his resources to carry out the “concerted” attacks against her, especially online. She might be referring to Leni Leaks and Naga Leaks who are exposed by the president’s supporters that pertain to the alleged wrongdoings of her family especially her late husband.
Former President and now Pampanga Representative. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo refused to give advice to the President on how to handle the maritime dispute over the South China Sea. She has no doubt that he knows what he’s doing.

[VIDEO]: Arroyo said that he cannot give any recommendations for the West Philippine Sea dispute because she does not have all the facts like the President does.
Won’t Dare Give Recommendations
Arroyo frankly said she would not dare make any recommendation to the president because she does not have access to all information that he has in his hands. “I can only share what happened in my administration. I do not know all the facts that are available to the current administration, so I do not dare to make any recommendations and I keep that attitude because of my own experience as President,” Arroyo elaborated.
Charge it to Experience
During Arroyo’s several people gave her recommendations on how to handle the South China Sea dispute. Since they did not have all the facts, this can create more misunderstandings. “As far as I’m concerned, the President knows what he is doing. I do not have any specific recommendations to make,” she added.
No South China Sea Conflict During her Time
It was under her presidency when Republic Act No. 9522 was enacted. It is the Amended Definitions of the Archipelagic Baseline of the Philippines. The declaration of the Philippine ‘sovereignty and jurisdiction’ over Scarborough Shoal is stated there. The shoal is a traditional fishing grounds for Filipinos near Masinloc, Zambales. The tension arises between the Philippines and the Chinese in 2012 when the Aquino administration brought the case into the Hague.
Crucial Economic Ties
Filipino fishermen are only able to fish there again after the current president resumes the Philippine-Chinese ties when he assumed power. Arroyo, however, thinks that the National Security Council should focus on economic ties with China. Du30 just ordered troops to occupy uninhabited islets and shoals which are Philippine territories in the Spratly Islands. They were driven away by the Chinese coast guard but Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said that it was just a matter of protocol. The answer should only be, “we are entering the Philippine territory.”

[VIDEO]: An Australian magazine has made bizarre claims that Kylie Minogue has been ‘quietly dating’ Prince Andrew for ‘several weeks’. New Idea has alleged that the ‘close friends’ got in touch after Kylie’s relationship with fiance Joshua Sasse ended in February.
“Kylie is someone that Her Majesty would welcome into the royal family with open arms. Everyone’s hoping this romance goes the distance.” However, there’s no confirmation yet that Prince Andrew has ever met Kylie. In spite of that, many of the singer’s fans expressed their disbelief via social media.
The Sandiganbayan’s First Division did not push through today’s plunder trial – instead, it is set for June 1. It’s the 6th schedule after 5 postponements since January. This is apparently to give way to the additional marking of voluminous evidence related to Revilla’s pork barrel projects. It allegedly allowed him to pocket P224.5 million in kickbacks.

[VIDEO]: Bong Revilla’s hearing is again postponed to June 1, 2017
Lead prosecutor Joefferson Toribio defended the delay in the marking. He said that each SARO has 4 thick folders of evidence. Revilla’s plunder case is connected to 16 SAROs all in all. So, the enormous amount of evidence can use up a lot of time when scrutinized thoroughly.
Disagreement on Unclear Copies
Toribio also complained that Revilla’s lawyers are also delaying the trial. Revilla’s chief of staff, Richard Cambe moved to withdraw some documents for being illegible. Toribio said that while producing clearer copies, Revilla’s lawyers refused to agree that the clearer copies and the original illegible copies are identical.
Concerned with Detained Revilla?
First Division Chair Associate Justice Efren dela Cruz did not accept Toribio’s reasons because it was the Revilla camp’s prerogative to be thorough with the documents. Dela Cruz told Revilla’s lawyers: “He’s just concerned for your client who is detained,” which lightened up the mood in the court – but certainly, Revilla is for sure still frustrated with longer time in jail.
The prosecution is due to present 48 witnesses who would prove that the projects supposed to be funded by Revilla’s pork barrel are non-existent. Revilla’s new lawyer, Estelito Mendoza, contested the inclusion of such testimonies which Revilla’s previous lawyers had allowed. But Dela Cruz mentioned that these testimonies can’t be removed just because a new lawyer wants to reorganize things.
The Sandiganbayan Third Division after investigating for a long time has found probable cause to continue the case of dismissed-Makati mayor Junjun Binay for graft and falsification of public documents over the allegedly overpriced construction of the P2.2 billion Makati car park building.

[VIDEO]: Makati Building 2 case now has probable cause against Junjun Binay after a long search.
In a resolution released on April 18, the anti-graft court said that there was probable cause to try Binay for falsification and graft raps because he was then the head of procuring entity called HOPE who was responsible for evaluating the documents by the Bids and Awards Committee.
Falsified in Newspaper?
The court said there was a basis to proceed with the trial of Binay’s six counts of falsification of public documents. It noted that the invitation to apply for eligibility and to bid (IAETB) was allegedly falsified in the Balita newspaper by superimposing on a Sudoku game printed in a similar newspaper issue.
“Instead (of the IAETB), a Sudoku Loco game is printed in the same location where the IAETB appears in the accused’s copy. After the said examination, the Court agrees with the finding of the Ombudsman that the purported IAETB seems to have been merely superimposed in the copy of the said newspaper,” the court said in the statement.
Binay’s defense was rejected saying that a newspaper is a private document and he should not be liable for falsification. The court sums up that the documents only showed that Binay and his co-accused have probably committed the falsification and graft charges. This can probably lead to the prima facie records of the case that can prove that the bidding for the Makati car park building was rigged. Most of the accused including Binay have posted bail. There’s no need for the court to issue warrants for arrest.
