Law-making is not a stranger to the new Senator Imee Marcos. She was in Congress before. She is definitely not keen on vying for the Senate Presidency but hopes for the chairmanship in social welfare or local government – just like her brother, Bongbong Marcos. Bullying was evident during the campaign period. Many factions call her names. Robber, lier, and many more. However, Marcos remains forgiving. She even assures her detractors not to worry because of her disbelief in vengeance.

First Time Win of a Marcos in Cebu
Senator Marcos said that it was a shocker to win the votes of Cebuanos. Cebu is known to be a bailiwick of the opposition but many people disagree with this. In fact, a reliable source said that a pro-Marcos priest arranges many campaign sorties of President Du30 who backs Marcos because of his admiration to the former first lady, Imelda Marcos. Sure enough, the Marcos matriarch considers her daughter’s win as her early 90th birthday gift.
Inday Sara Delivers in Davao
On top of the surprising votes, Inday Sara, the presidential daughter also delivers in Davao and other territories of the Du30’s and other Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates. The Marcos-Du30 votes really prove to be unbeatable these days. This is a good hint for the tandem for 2022.
The North Remembers and Ignores the Bullying
The new senator is happy with the outcome of the North. They really remembered, she added. The bullying has no effect on them because they know the real score as far as the Marcoses are concerned. Most of them are even fed up with the repeated accusations against her.
Touching on the Issues Thrown
Marcos firmly says that although Princeton denies that she is a graduate of the school, she is officially a member of the alumni. She just does not want to make speculations on how that happens. All she knows that she completes the curriculum just like her peers. There was also no problem in her admission to the UP until their negative statement just prior to the campaign period. After her victory, she wants to address poverty after profiling those who need help that can be productive and the one who need proper care.
Affordable Foods on the Table through Agriculture
Imports for the basic commodities must only be for emergency situations only. Boosting agricultural production is really the key to putting quality affordable food on the table daily. Her previous case in Ilocos Norte only proves that she is willing to go out of her way to help the farmers. She also warns her son, the successor of her gubernatorial task – not to approve almost all requests of his constituents to balance the province’s funds.

Atty. Glenn Chong’s fight for clean election did not stop when he fails to grab a Senate seat during the recent 2019 elections. He now openly campaigns to declare Bongbong Marcos as the real Vice President through social media. Recently, Chong argues with Comelec spokesperson, James Jimenez on the digital election fraud that allegedly happens during the 7-hour transmission interruption. Jimenez calls it Chong’s alternative theory. Marcos, on the other hand, pushes the Hybrid system that Chong recommends even before the mid-year poll.

Parallel Thinking on the Hybrid System
BBM explains the advantage of a hybrid system for the next elections through his vlog. The voting and counting must be manual he said. This allows spectators to witness the actual count. Then, the transmission results from the precincts to the Comelec can be through digital transmission. Marcos said that Comelec’s mistake is evident on the use of additional servers. It is necessary that the report must go directly to the poll agency without interruption from voting centers to discourage alteration, he added. This is in line with Chong’s presentation earlier.
The President’s Recommendation
President Rodrigo Du30 recommends to the Comelec not to use Smartmatic anymore for the 2022 Presidential elections. This is exactly the advocacy of Atty. Glenn Chong. Since both the LP and the pro-administration candidates are not happy with Smartmatic, there’s no reason any more to keep it. Although the poll body is an independent entity from the government, it is open to the idea to stop using Smartmatic.
The Election Fraud is Right Inside the Machine
Jimenez and former congressman Chong are at the Chamber of Representatives during the hearing of the House committee on public accounts. This is after the former Biliran Representative’s complaints about why there are 7 hours of break away from the media during the transmission of results. Chong also said that his name was not in the template. This is the reason why his name can’t come out in the receipt even though he was voted. The cheating is therefore right inside the machine, he insists.
The Real Score
The real score between Marcos and Chong is simple. Both of them know that they were cheated during the particular elections. They also have evidence to prove such accusations. Therefore, it is understandable that they can work together towards a common goal.
It’s Up to the Congress
Jimenez comments that it is up to Congress to create a law on using a hybrid system for the upcoming elections. He did not show any refusal nor disagreement to President Du30’s suggestion to totally scrap Smartmatic. This is contrary to some posts on social media. He also added that election fraud accusations must be dealt with using actual facts and not alternative truths. It is very important that the people would continue to watch if he will “walk the talk” or not. Is he really against election fraud?

The Liberal Party’s big loss with Ocho Diretso is the fruit of a “Bikoy” black media propaganda that backfires to the makers. Now, the Senate has the pro-Du30 supporters. In fact, both the majority and the minority are both allies of the Marcos-friendly administration. On top of that, the upper and lower houses are on the verge of voting for the new Senate President and Speaker of the House who can likely influence the Du30-Marcos connivance or vice versa. Watch closely the interview of Senator-elect Imee Marcos regarding the upcoming Presidential elections. Perhaps, not for her but for BBM.

Cannot Answer for the Presidential Plans of BBM
It is understandable that Senator Imee Marcos cannot answer for the presidential plans of her brother, Bongbong Marcos for the 2022 Presidential elections. However, at the rate it is going, there are signs that a Du30 and Marcos bet would be a tandem. The only question is who would run for President and Vice President. Sen. Marcos humbly said that BBM can’t even sit yet as Vice President because of the ongoing electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. How much more the Presidency? As for her, it is not in her mind at all.
Sara Du30 as the Strongest Presidential Bet
Since most of the administration candidates top the recent 2019 elections, it is safe to say that the Presidential daughter is the strongest presidential bet for the time being. Sen. Marcos added that Mayor Du30 has the important qualities and supporters of a successful national leader. She can also easily nourish her experience in governance in the next 3 years. Needless to say, BBM is ripe for the Presidency but the black media propaganda against their father still haunts them.
Pay Back Time
Recently, President Rodrigo Du30 recommends to the Comelec not to use Smartmatic anymore in the 2022 Presidential elections. This is exactly the advocacy of Atty. Glenn Chong who now urges the Supreme Court to declare BBM as Vice President. Since both the LP and the pro-administration candidates accuse it of fraud, then it’s about time, the President said. Nevertheless, people should know that the poll body is an independent entity from the government.
The Hybrid System
In his recent vlog, BBM suggests the hybrid system for the next elections. The voting and counting must be manual he said. Then, the transmission results from the precincts to the Comelec can be digital. This way, transparency is certain with the use of live stream media.
The Unbeatable Connivance
The Du30-Marcos tandem is definitely unbeatable if the election is held right now. It is just a question of who would run for President and VP. Although Mayor Sara earlier jokes that she would rather run for Vice President. BBM is also more senior than her in politics but still has to make amends to the Du30 supporters who are not pro-Marcos.

The Senator for the first time was proclaimed recently which is exactly 60 years ago of her father’s initial proclamation. She’s so optimistic of the good things she can do for the country under the leadership of President Rodrigo Du30. Marcos also downplays her win as the big return of the Marcoses to power because her brother, Bongbong Marcos was already a Senator before her. He also cannot claim the Vice Presidency yet because of the ongoing electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo.

Optimistic on the Coincidence
It is a coincidence that 60 years ago in 1959, the late President Ferdinand Marcos became a Senator for the first time. Just like his daughter’s proclamation today. This made Senator Marcos optimistic on her new role as lawmaker.
Believes in the President Du30’s Leadership
The Senator is always grateful to the President’s support. She speaks highly of him when others criticize him because of his jokes. Marcos obviously finds favor in Du30’s eyes. Therefore, the Marcos-Du30 tandem in the near future would be unbeatable.
Message to Bashers
Senator assures her bashers and detractors not to worry. She is not into vengeance, she said. Marcos vows to generate work instead. As people already know that she is hands on to good governance. Now, she can bring all the goodness that she has done locally nationwide.
Besides, one can really be optimistic when your whole family celebrates with you. Mother, Imelda Marcos is as bright as her red terno. Brother Bongbong, arrives earlier than her as well. Sister Irene is as joyful as ever. Plus her gorgeous sons who are her escorts. Then of course her grand daughter and daughter-in-law grace the picture takings.
Not Yet the Big Return
People might think that her victory marks the Marcoses’ return to power. Although no one can argue that this is a contributing factor of the Marcos brand, this is not yet the big thing. She declines to answer her 2022 plans because she have to settle down first in the new post. However, it is evident that the next elections would be an attempt for a Marcos to return to Malacanang. Although, this is likely for Bongbong Marcos’ presidency.

The recently concluded May 13, 2019 election may be anomalous for some but it is at least believable for BBM or Bongbong Marcos. His thorough Senate campaign for his sister, Imee Marcos is a success. On the other hand, Calabarzon police director P/Brig. Gen.l Edward Carranza’s 22 policemen are found guilty for the murder of Atty. Glenn Chong’s aide, Red Santillan and his companion. They have a double murder case charges. Calabarzon Provincial Director P/Col. Lou Evangelista, and acting Cainta police chief P/Lt. Col. Panlito Naganag will face the obstruction of justice charges. This is for fabricating information on the fatal shooting incident. The same goes with Carranza.

Thanking Supporters for Imee Marcos’ Senate Win
Bongbong Marcos said; Thank you to everyone who campaigned, voted and are watching the vote! None of this would have been possible without your support! Imee Marcos also said this; My heartfelt gratitude for your trust and support. Thank you, we won because of you.
Atty. Glenn Chong’s New Ally
Atty. Glenn Chong may not be successful in his Senatorial bid but one thing is certain. He has found a vital ally in Team Marcos. His media exposure during the election campaign period as a clean poll advocate really benefits BBM’s electoral protest. He deserves their alliance for a better government in the near future. Chong is seen to take up a very important post under the Marcoses’ new era. He expresses his gratitude to the group in a Facebook message.
Punishing the Culprits
The defeat of Atty. Chong seems to open new doors for his fights. Take the case of Red Santillan. The NBI said that the December 2018 shooting of Santillan and his companion Gessamyn “Minmin” Casing in Cainta, Rizal was a rubout and not a firefight, as claimed by the police. “The severity of the police officers’ acts indicated a calculated pursuit of a decision to kill Red and Minmin,” the NBI said in an April 21 transmittal letter released to the media on Monday.
Santillan died from 21 gunshot wounds in different parts of his body, while Casing succumbed to two, according to the autopsy results. Citing forensic reports and witness testimonies, the NBI said the victims were defenseless and did not use firearms. This is contrary to the claim of the policemen who said the two fired at them first, prompting them to shoot back.
Eliminating the Police Scalawags
It added that policemen involved in the incident made a conscious decision for a “sure kill,” using their short and long firearms against unarmed civilians.The NBI also recommended that the policemen be charged for planting of evidence, noting that the firearms recovered by the police from Santillan’s vehicle tested negative for the fingerprints of either victims.
