The LSI’s Plight

The plight of our LSI is a real problem for our LGUs, cities, and provinces. Clear policies and sufficient funding from the national government are needed to reopen the doors to their own constituents, Bongbong Marcos said. These locally stranded individuals desperately need help on a larger scale. Immediate at that. Only the government has the capacity to secure international loans during the crisis.

Locally Stranded Individuals

There are more than 4,000 locally stranded individuals in different holding areas in Metro Manila. Most of them lost their jobs and cannot pay up their rent anymore. Due to the protocol in place to prevent the further spread of Coronavirus, they are stuck in unlikely facilities if not in public places. They are certainly under extreme exposure to the virus. Not to mention the uncertainty of their livelihood.

Airborne Scenario

The scientific analysis that Covid-19 can be airborne contrary to the initial perception poses greater hazards to all. Not just to these individuals. Judging to the experience of Japan, their exclusivity for COVID-19 hospitals and the administration of yearly flu vaccines do help in keeping their fatality rate low. The government can certainly do more to ease these sufferings.

This Truth Hurts from Senator Imee Marcos on Education


By: Elena Grace Flores

In reality, most teachers took education because it’s the cheapest degree. It’s not their first choice, according to Senator Imee Marcos.

Truth Hurts on Education

Passion is needed to be successful in any field. The Philippines’ education is not an exemption. This is seldom the case if the teaching profession is only an alternative choice for most of the country’s teachers. However, they are a few who display their life skills during the pandemic. One is a teacher who resorts to online selling to survive the crisis. Senator Marcos is right that it is hard to find a committed teacher but it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. However, these few educators often struggle to influence their peers. Let alone their superiors because of the current system. Flexibility is not an option.

Life Skills

The senator explains that life skills are essential in the development of children. Thinking, interacting, managing, and leadership enhancements are crucial for nurturing a dynamic workforce in the country. The system must equip the current teachers with the resources for them to serve as models to their students.

Bashing Imee Marcos

Some media that are in favor of the opposition can only interpret Marcos’ statements as blaming the teachers. Senator Marcos’ theories are not mere speculations but are the procedures of the current emerging digital industries. Without the capabilities that she mentioned, it would be impossible to innovate. Filipinos must adapt to the changes quickly because those who can’t be simply left behind.

Mayor Sara Duterte Supports Bongbong Marcos’ Claim

Sara Duterte alleges ‘massive fraud’ in 2016 elections, calls Robredo ‘fake VP’

Mayor Sara Backs Bongbong Marcos’ Claim

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, calls Vice President (VP) Leni Robredo a “fake VP.” She also alleges that there was massive fraud during the 2016 elections where her father also won as president. Duterte-Carpio backs the claim of Bongbong Marcos who confronts Robredo with an electoral protest. Despite the pandemic, the Marcos loyalists continue to call on the PET to take action.

Fake VP

Mayor Sara’s calling Robredo a fake VP indicates her common ground with Marcos’ claim of fraud against Robredo. Like her father, she has close relations with the daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ daughter, Senator Imee Marcos. The older Marcos is sure that the mayor can be a good President if elections are held today. However, she also understands that she loves Davao and her family is the main priority.

Vice Presidential Bet

The mayor constantly declares during interviews that she is not for national elections. However, she once hints that she might run for Vice President. The BBM-Duterte Carpio tandem can certainly happen. Surprisingly, many social media groups campaign for the idea. This is a positive hope for people who are slowly adapting to the new normal. Vibrant leaders are indeed a must to put the crisis behind the nation’s progress!

Bongbong Marcos’ Proclamation after Robredo’s Term Floats

CJ Peralta assures fair decision on Marcos poll protest vs Robredo

Bongbong Marcos’ Proclamation

Supreme Court Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta said a few months ago that he’s not favoring the Marcoses. The burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos was the only Marcos case he authors for. Therefore, the proclamation of Bongbong Marcos under his term would rely mostly on the outcome of the protest proceeding. Since it’s 2 years already prior to the next national election, it floats via social media that Marcos’ proclamation can happen shortly before or right after Leni Robredo’s term as Vice President.

Surviving Covid-19

Meanwhile, the former Senator features on his vlogs possible remedies on how to improve the lives of Filipinos before and right after the pandemic. This is after his own survival from the virus. He has some economic measures in mind. All of them consider the plight of the majority. He campaigns to strongly embrace technology to be competitive. Marcos also calls on the government and the people to have plans in aiding OFWS, seafarers, and other online workers and laborers with livelihood infrastructures.

2022 Presidential Plan

Should the proclamation of Marcos come as Robredo’s term ends, this could easily put him in the hot seat for the presidency. His win could be the justification for the unfair plight in 2016. However, if it’s the other way around, he would be in line with other candidates and must strategize seriously to win some votes from his unlikely voters. Nevertheless, there’s no better time for him to run as president but in 2022.

Personalizing Senator Imee Marcos on ABS CBN’s Testimony is All About 2022

Senator Imee Marcos

By: Elena Grace Flores


Senator Imee Marcos is Not Personalizing ABS CBN’s Case.

Why are they personalizing Senator Imee Marcos?

Senator Imee Marcos said a few months ago at the Kapihan sa Senado that she is not personalizing ABS CBN’s plight. This must go through the legal process. Despite having bad feelings to the network just like President Rodrigo Duterte, she also feels for their employees.

ABS CBN Ownership Remained with the Lopezes

In a news blog, the headline implies that ABS CBN serves as the source of funds for the young Imee Marcos’ wants. However, Former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile already said that the Lopez family never lost its ownership. During the administration of former President Ferdinand Marcos, the facilities of the entire ABS-CBN complex, broadcast complex, were put under the control of the government. The title of all of these facilities is still with the owners to this date.

It’s All About Bongbong Marcos in 2022

At the Kapihan, the press people insist on getting an answer from Senator Marcos about her brother’s presidential candidacy for 2022. She confirms that he will definitely run. Although the exact position is not yet known. She agrees that there are many capable candidates in the Senate alone. Marcos also understands the unwillingness of the President’s daughter, Mayor Sara Duterte to lead the country because of her young family. Currently, the Senator looks into the alleged labor violations among call center agents during the time of the pandemic on top of other tasks. She said it’s too early for a smear election campaign for 2022.
