You voted for your President: Remember Pnoy vs Gibo?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s not that there are no capable and dependable presidentiables in the Philippines. It’s just a matter of choice. Take the case of real life cousins from the Cojuanco clan; Gibo Tedodora and Benigno Simeon Aquino better know as Pnoy who were both eyeing for the Presidency in 2010. Who did majority of the people vote? How is it now?

It is clear that most Filipinos are judgmental and easily influenced by media propaganda. The reason why many voted for Pnoy was because he seemed like the lesser evil at that time. Not that Gibo was more evil to their eyes – but because he was the Arroyo Administration’s bet who was facing numerous plunder allegations that went nowhere as Pnoy’s term ended.

Many did not look at achievements, public service experience, character, principles, intelligence and capabilities not to mention looks. Pnoy was the choice of the majority because of his father and mother’s stories. Little do they know that his own mother detested for him to run as president because he will not be a good one. In fairness to him, he really did his best but mothers know best. However it’s not too late yet, Duterte’s announcement that Gibo will definitely get a position in his cabinet means that the majority voters got a second chance to double check on their guidelines in choosing a President hoping that it’s lesson learned for 2022. Welcome back, Gibo!

Be Fair: If Abby is Corrupt, Bongbong is a Dictator – then Bimby is a Murderer?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Hatred amidst family feuds in the Philippines will never stop – if the people themselves continue to be haunted by the mistakes or misunderstandings in the past, then how can the future for the country be bright? People should learn from history – and not copy bad judgement and actions.

As Senator Gringo Honasan explains; why prosecute the son for the alleged crimes of the father? True or not, media propaganda to destroy the Binay name is very obvious from the result of the latest national election. On the other hand, Abby Binay won the mayoraly of Makati – just because many Makati residents have witnessed how the Binays really are contrary to negative news reports. However, will she get a chance to run and win in a national election later on? It remains to be seen.

Now, if that is the case as Merriam Defensor Santiago puts it; If Bongbong Marcos is prosecuted for the things he did not do, why can’t we paint the future image of Bimby as murderer and land grabber as per the Hacienda Luisita incidents? Very unfair, right? So, Bimby and Joshua, better stay out of politics until Filipinos learn not to judge!

Robredo-Marcos: It’s tampered – do not accept

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s time to stop hurting people on both sides of the game. It has proven than Comelec has tampered the server. It does not matter how minimal the tampering is – it’s still tampered. Is the featured image familiar to you? We are not advised to drink or eat tampered products. We can either get poisoned or die. The same as the VP election results. It’s deadly for Marcos’ and Robredo’s supporters.

Who can blame Senator Bongbong Marcos into speculating that there’s indeed fraud when the results trend changed overnight? Better yet, Comelec confessed doing minor tampering – but it’s not their call to say it’s minor nor any IT expert. The fact that it’s tampered plus there’s discrepancy between the 2 transparency servers – with one is intended to mirror the other.

In fairness to Leni Robredo also – you won’t be proud claiming the position when many people would think that you are cheating even if you are not. So, manual recount is a must if the ballots are not tampered yet. It is also ideal to conduct another Vice Presidential and Senatorial election because there are many unanswered questions on why such candidates won – and they surged just after Comelec tampered the server.

No more ex-President to Jail…Heal: Estrada, Arroyo then who?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Former Philippine President Gloria Arroyo wasarrested in hospital on plunder charges for allegedly misusing state funds while in office. Mrs Arroyo, who is accused of diverting $8.8m (£5.5m) from the state lottery charity fund for personal gain. However, as her jailer’s term President Aquino is ending, she has been acquitted from various cases. Will she regain back her life spent in proson? She was an expert economist better than her peers, why didn’t Pnoy used her brilliance? She is totally wasted!

The Sandiganbayan ruled Estrada not guilty of perjury while ruling him as guilty of plunder and sentenced him to reclusión perpetua. All of his co-accused were acquitted. He was later pardoned by then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Estrada’s techniques worked in retaining peace in Mindanao with his operations against the NPAs or the rebels. He won again during the resident election as Manila mayor. He should have served in the Peace and Order Department than waste his time in jail.


One of the country’s most prominent lawmakers, Iloilo Rep. Augusto “Boboy” Syjuco Jr., filed a case against Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III at the Office of the Ombudsman for an alleged Plunder over the misused of the P220 billion pork barrel funds. When will this plunder cases stop against former presidents? When will healing comes when some people wanted to hear is “Pnoy to Jail”. Time to break the chain. If proven guilty, he should serve the country for such number of years without compensation – in a department where his expertise is evident. Why waste a man who just did the best based on what he can? If he failed, then blame the people who voted for him. As for Pnoy, he’s single so going to jail is handy for him.

Bashers Don’t Get It – Alliance to Unseat LP in the Top Position

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Veterans in politics know very well that to get more votes to topple a popular opponent, great alliance is crucial with prominent people willing to sacrifice for the sake of the people. This is evident when Presidential candidate V.P. Jejomar Binay went out of his way – and one of the pioneers to convince Duterte to run in the first place.

There were conversations like; Duterte to contradict Mar and be at par with Grace Poe’s popularity – so that the lead would be too high and will make it impossible for the administration’s bet to cheat. This was when the corruption allegations against Binay dominated the scene. Duterte eventually considered the challenge for as long as Binay would support his campaigning. This should answer why Binay supporters were told via chat rooms not to go below the belt with Duterte because he’s with us.

It was not clear how else Binay supported Duterte – because in the process, they seem to be throwing mud at each other on TV. (perhaps just to mislead the opponent). However, various Binay groups are complaining that Binay’s campaign materials are way too low for the demand. In one Binay headquarters in Las Pinas, it was overheard from a campaigner saying; why no more Binay tarpaulin posters but plenty of Duterte’s? This was confirmed from a printer in Quezon City that loads of Duterte materials were paid for by a Binay representative. That would probably explain why Duterte was showing respect to Pastor Boy Saycon who is also the chairman of COPA, Binay’s major campaigner since the NoyBi era.
