If Jesse Robredo were on Leni’s Shoes…

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Jesse Manalastas Robredo or Jesse Robredo was the husband of Leni Robredo. He served as a Filipino statesman who served as Secretary of the Interior and Local Government in the administration of President Benigno Aquino III from 2010 to until his death in 2012 when the twin engine aircraft he was boarding plunges into sea. He is always remembered as a mayor of his hometown in Naga City to be a good, honest and hardworking mayor who led by example.

As Joy Lutio puts it: I am sure that if Jesse were on Leni’s shoes right now, he would never be comfortable with whatever slim lead he has over BBM – given all the doubts on the honesty of canvassing. Probably, he will even be the first to demand a recount or he might not even accept the win under all the doubt and uncertainty. Definitely, he will not be a party to any manipulation of votes.

This insight was drawn from the responses of our more than 10,645 readers (as per Google Analytics report) particularly in the United States, Philippines and Canada with the best response stated above.

Binay Brigade Thankful to Duterte for 2nd Objective’s Success

welcome By: Hilario Andes
From : Datu Boy S. Mutahmeen, BINAYBrigade
Pastor Boy Saycon, BinayBrigade
Ecclesiastes Chapter 3.3 is now apt for us, millions of BINAY – DUTERTE – MARCOS – HONASAN volunteers and supporters, to embrace each other and chart a new chapter for our country under the leadership of a friend and a comrade for peace, MAYOR DIGONG, who now leads in the presidential race.

Perhaps, only few of you know that we have two (2) strategic objectives as we planned for the 2016 elections. One is for VP JOJO BINAY TO WIN. The other is to stop any of the two (2) candidates of the yellows. And as GOD and Destiny have willed, it was MAYOR DIGONG who stopped and defeated MAR and Grace. AND IT WAS MAYOR DIGONG WHO THWARTED THE DESPERATE PLANS OF NOYNOY AQUINO TO HOLD ON TO POLITICAL POWER THROUGH HIS YELLOW SURROGATES. VP Jojo Binay may have lost the vote count, we are happy and consoled that we attained the second objective. AND THANKS BE TO OUR GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY AND TO THE GREAT ALLAH THE MERCIFUL.
VP JOJO BINAY has already extended his hand of friendship and unity to the incoming president. AND WE NOW CALL EACH OF YOU TO UNITE and join forces for the greater tasks ahead of NATION-BUILDING because it is always when our hands are knotted tight to each other that we are – and remain – strong.

AS WE ARE BROTHERS, separated only by our individual choices during the heated campaign, THE TIME HAS COME FOR US TO AGAIN EMBRACE EACH OTHER FOR THE SAKE OF OUR MOTHERLAND. God Bless Us All. GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES.

Elite but Down to Earth Public Servant: Congressman Luis Campos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Congressman Luis Campos might look like an ordinary public servant galavanting the villages of Makati – but mind you, he came from the historical Nakpil clan. He partly owns the Elite Models Manila with its headquarters at top floor of A.Venue Makati. Campos’s family once owned Juan Luna’s “Parisian Life.” He was also a partner in the Filipino restaurant Andres, and opened the Botong’s Resto-Bar in Makati.

Mayor Abby Binay and Campos are both products of Ateneo Law School. Both are avid art collectors and lived originally at the posh Dasmariñas Village. Despite all these, his love for public service made him at one with the Binays’ humble style and ways. He’s a common sight at his wife’s medical clinics and job fairs. It was only at the “Lingkod Bayan Caravan” where his name was highlighted when Abby had to run for mayor of Makati replacing her brother, Junjun Binay. Then, he has no choice but to run to replace his wife as representative of Makati District 2.

He is approachable and will go out of his way to visit you when circumstances call for it. During the election, he assigned his staff Ching at 8825098 and Jony at 09189335219 to take care of people asking for help on legal concerns who were not only helpful but also polite and prompt. Campos is the first Binay in-law to serve in public office.

Vice Presidential Race Update: May 14, 2016 at 8PM Official Canvass Not In

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Official Canvass Results not in as of 8PM, May 14, 2016. The process would require that the canvass from provincial, city and absentee voting be certified by authorized people or agency.

Social media postings declaring any one of the two candidates for Vice President: Leni Robredo and Senator Bongbong Marcos will be misleading to the public. So, please think before you click!

The Official Canvass Results will be published here as soon as confirmed by our source covering the actual counts of the canvass.
