Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, and Jinggoy Estrada, slam the Otso Diretso slate for boasting on their clean record at the expense of other candidates. Opposition Senate aspirant, Atty. Romulo Macalintal said that there is a problem with the exchanges if they won’t happen face to face. The LP tactic aims to humiliate their opponent using past media propaganda. So, his team challenges other senatorial candidates to face them in debates instead of complaining about “negative campaigning” during political sorties. It is evident through the mainstream media that the LP bets are critical of Marcos’ educational attainment. Atty. Larry Gadon counteracts this and together with another social media hottie, Atty. Glenn Chong, they accept their challenge. z

Anytime Anywhere for Atty. Glenn Chong

Atty. Glenn Chong said that he never says no to any debate. He is always a debater ever since he was in school and a good one at that. He counter-challenges them by giving him the time and venue for the said occasion. Chong ranks in the top 2 of social media popularity together with Gadon. Not to mention the ever famous, Governor Marcos.

4 vs 1 for Atty. Larry Gadon but Not at the UP

Gadon is up for Otso Diretso’s debate challenge, provided that only four opposition senatorial candidates would be on the same debate with him. The venue should not be at the University of the Philippines where there is a crowd of communists, according to him.

Pimentel: Aren’t they Busy?

“Are they not busy with their own rally?” Senator Koko Pimentel told the media when asked about the Liberal Party-led “Otso Diretso” opposition slate’s challenge to debate on election issues. Pimentel said that the administration’s PDP-Laban party and their guest candidates are open to debates. But the campaign sorties across the country present scheduling problems.

Imee Marcos is Too Busy

“There is no problem if there would be a debate. I have no problem with that. But there are some like us who are too busy making the rounds that we couldn’t even go back to Manila, said Marcos.” This leaves Otso Diretso members with Gadon and Chong. The people are waiting.

Gadon and Chong are Waiting

Given that their political enemies would do everything to stop any Marcos from reaching the top position of the land, the younger Marcos generation is fully-equipped with an experienced politician like their grandmother. The guidance of both Bongbong and Imee Marcos is also vital. Unlike the yellow faction, it is not their nature to discredit other candidates for election. They can play along with politics because it is their life. Many Filipinos are banking on them to lead the nation to prosperity.

Midterm Election Surprise: Is Sandro Marcos Running for Ilocos Norte Post?

Sandro Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

The recent content of BBM’s Vlog depicts a vacant seat in the Ilocos Norte government reserved for Sandro Marcos. It so happens that its board member who intends to run for vice governor alongside Matthew Marcos Manotoc as governor died in Laoag City last February 15, 2019 at 64 years old. Manotoc replaces his grandmother, Congresswoman Imelda Marcos who filed the gobernaturial Certificate of Candidacy. It turns out that the Vice Governor post is also a case of substitution in the person of the ever popular Sandro Marcos. z

[VIDEO]: Happy Birthday from Ilocos, Sandro! The North remembers you.

Brilliant Strategy

Ilocos Norte 2nd District Senior Board Member Matthew Marcos Manotoc who filed for the Vice Governor COC will run for Governor instead. This is after the former First Lady withdraws from the race as planned. Manotoc, the son of Ilocos Norte Governor and Senatorial aspirant Imee Marcos now runs in tandem with Sandro Marcos as indicated in the teaser. The late Nonong Marcos’ generational gap from the gubernatorial hopeful is quite a question right from the start. Therefore leading to speculations that he was just substituting for someone else.

Just Like his Father

In 1980, the 23-year-old Bongbong Marcos became Vice Governor of Ilocos Norte. He ran unopposed under the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan party of his father. His father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos was still the ruler of the Philippines until his fall in 1986. Until this time, the Marcoses are all hot bets for top government positions. Aside from that, Sandro Marcos at 24, the eldest son of the former Senator with wife Louise Araneta remains a social media sweetheart despite living in London for the time being.

Degree Disputes

Sandro Marcos has earned his master’s degree in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science. It is evident that every election time, the opposition always include in their campaign sorties Bongbong Marcos and sister Imee Marcos’ alleged lying on their educational attainment due to lack of a diploma. Never the less, they do not have to defend themselves. Real people who witnessed their achievements in prestigious schools are speaking up to their defense. They were indeed victims of power manipulation by the Dilawans.

No Chance for the Farinas Clan in Ilocos Norte

Ilocos Norte 1st District Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas said Friday he would run for governor in his home province. Fariñas said he would serve as substitute candidate for Jesus Arimboyutan and would run under the PDP-Laban political party. The 67-year-old lawmaker will battle it out against Ilocos Norte board member Matthew Marcos Manotoc, grandson of Ilocos Norte 2nd District Rep. Imelda Marcos.

Playing Along with Politics

Given that their political enemies would do everything to stop any Marcos from reaching the top position of the land, the younger Marcos generation is fully-equipped with an experienced politician like their grandmother. The guidance of both Bongbong and Imee Marcos is also vital. Unlike the yellow faction, it is not their nature to discredit other candidates for election. They can play along with politics because it is their life. Many Filipinos are banking on them to lead the nation to prosperity.

Atty. Larry Gadon Sheds Light to Imee Marcos’ UP Diploma Mystery

Larry Gadon
By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Larry Gadon who runs for Senator said that another popular senatorial candidate, Imee Marcos and he had the same professor Dr. Froilan M. Bacungan who was his reliable source when they were studying in different universities. He was under Prof. Bacungan at FEU or Far Eastern University while Marcos was at UP. Gadon recalls his mentor saying that the Governor was a brilliant student. Despite this, she fails to take a bar examination because the Dilawans withhold her credentials to qualify during the 1986 coup d’ Etat or EDSA. z

[VIDEO]: Atty. Larry Gadon Divulges the Dilawan’s Hand in Imee Marcos’ Law Degree

1986 Power Take Over

Atty. Gadon insists that the EDSA revolution was really a Coup d’ Etat because it was a case of a power grab. The Dilawans or yellows were triumphant at that time because of the black media propaganda against the late President, Ferdinand Marcos. The deceased Cory Aquino and the likes allegedly maneuvered the public lies using the death of her husband, Ninoy Aquino to generate public sympathy.

Dysfunctional Members of the Aquino Family

The outspoken attorney added that the Aquino patriarch Ninoy was a communist. His wife, Cory was evil, and even their son, the former President Noynoy Aquino is sick on the head. There cause Filipinos to live a life of lies using the media networks of their cronies.

Denying Imee Marcos of her Credential

The Dilawans who are trying to erase the achievements of the Marcoses from the land, resort to making it impossible for Imee Marcos to get a Special Order needed to complete the requirements of her pre-admission degree. She was supposed to take supplemental units to satisfy UP with the qualification needed as recognized by the university. Her UK education seems not at par with their imposed pre-requirement. She was able to complete her units for the law course but did not qualify for the bar examination because of the said requirement.

Wake Up Filipinos

The self-confessed true blood Marcos loyalist urges Filipinos not to believe in the false information that the Dilawans continue to propagate. They are only into power and not into the welfare of the people. Former President Marcos’ projects can attest that he is the only President whose accomplishments cannot be overpassed when it comes to giving Filipinos better lives.

Defending the Favorite Senatorial Candidate

First, President Rodrigo Du30 attacks the Otso Diretso Liberal Party candidates saying that they will go straight to hell. Then, comes Atty. Gadon who is in line with the President’s criticisms towards the LP bets. Gadon just merely describes the nature of the roots of the country’s traitors. Followed by the Filipino leader who characterizes the yellow hopefuls with the same characterizations. All for Imee Marcos and the Filipino people.

Robredo is Thankful for Du30’s Otso Diretso Attention for the 2019 Election

2019 election
By: Elena Grace Flores

It is a known fact in the Philippines that President Rodrigo Roa Du30 is not appreciative of the sitting VP. However, it is still a surprise that the questionable second leader thanks Du30 for his negative remarks on her party’s 2019 election senatorial bets, Otso Diretso (straight 8). At least, they got his attention, she admits. Robredo said that she is thankful for the President’s acknowledgement regardless of his “straight to hell” comment. The tough-talking leader spares only one of the 8 since she is from Mindanao. The mainstream media is currently feasting on this issue among others. z

[VIDEO]: Bumuwelta ang Otso Diretso sa mga banat ni Pangulong Rodrigo Du30 sa mga kandidato ng oposisyon. Kumambiyo naman ang Palasyo at sinabing posibleng nagpapatawa lang ang pangulo.

Straight to Hell for the 2019 Election

The senatorial candidates of the opposition Otso Diretso (Straight Eight) are going straight to hell, according to President Du30. The opposition coalition’s candidates have not done anything for the country but criticize. He made a comment about each one of them who are candidates as Senators for the 2019 election.

Roxas, the Boastful One

Those people do nothing but criticize, Du30 said. He questions their competence and accomplishments for the first time in a campaign sortie. He calls former interior secretary Manuel Roxas II “hambugero” or arrogant. Roxas retaliates at once boasting his alleged call center achievement that the former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo initiated. The former Senator is known for his incompetence in handling the Yolanda typhoon disaster as witnessed by many foreign journalists.

Old Wounds

To vote for Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano is a “mistake,” the President said as he belittles the former soldier’s involvement in uprisings against Arroyo. “Look at the Magdalo. They launched a revolt in Makati… When the police came, they surrendered,” Du30 said. He also attacks Sen. Bam Aquino being just a lookalike of his uncle, the late senator Benigno Aquino Jr. The late Aquino was the rival of the late President Ferdinand Marcos who resorted to unbelievable strategies to topple Marcos.

Negative Attention for a Laugh

“Tañada is a leftist. Do you know who gives us headaches? They do not admit they are NPA members but they support the group by acting as their lawyers,” Du30 said. He insinuates that election lawyer Romulo Macalintal only serves clients for money. Chel Diokno’s manner of talking is no match to his father former senator Jose Diokno, he added. The Filipino leader also criticizes Former solicitor-general Florin Hilbay and calls him a “turtle.”

Vengeance for Imee Marcos?

Robredo defends the opposition senatorial candidates. They were chosen because of their good track record, she said. The other Otso Diretso candidates hit back at Du30. They accuse him of using his position to campaign for his bets at the expense of the opposition. The temporary VP said that the fact that the President mentions each opposition bet shows that they are getting the attention of the people. On the other hand, Du30’s bet, Imee Marcos was the target of criticisms by the Otso Diretso team earlier.

Atty. Bruce Rivera to Robredo: Unfair UP and Princeton Treatments to Imee Marcos Made Her More Successful

Imee Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

A fellow UP product, Atty. Bruce Rivera defends Imee Marcos from the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo’s bitch-talking over her radio program. He said that graduate or not from UP or Princeton, the governor is more successful than any summa cum laude like Hilbay or magna cum laude like him. Considering that her family’s humiliation due to black media propaganda drags on for over 30 years.This is after Robredo accuses Marcos of lying despite her own very notable reputation of being a great liar herself. z

Otso Diretso is Straight to the Loo Because of Imee Marcos

The opposition senatorial candidates hit administration bet, Imee Marcos. Like Robredo, they also accuse her of lying for saying that she graduates from Princeton University and the UP College of Law. Former solicitor general Florin Hilbay was first to take a swipe against Marcos. Someone runs yet lies about her diploma, Hilbay announced. Veteran election lawyer Romy Macalintal follows suit. He said that they must scrutinize the backgrounds of each of the candidates. He urges them not to entrust their future in the hands of thieves. Then Macalintal turns to Marcos. Former Quezon congressman Erin Tañada also shares his failures to pass the bar examinations twice before passing it on his 3rd try. Tañada said the students should vote for candidates who have integrity. Then lashes on Marcos all the same.

Leni Robredo’s Bitchiness

The Vice President who faces an electoral protest by Marcos’ brother, Bongbong Marcos alludes to the eldest daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos for not engaging in senatorial debate to address the issue. What’s worse is the others can really continuously lie…Just like about her studies in UP and Princeton, there were lies, right?, Robredo confirms. Marcos declares she graduated cum laude from the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Law and earned a master’s degree in religion and politics from Princeton University in the United States. But both universities have debunked Marcos’ claims about her educational credentials. This is despite visual evidence and testimonies of her batch mates.

Debate Challenge

The temporary Vice President zeroes in on Marcos and other administration-backed senatorial candidates from Hugpong ng Pagbabago party for not joining televised debates. In her radio show, Robredo said the HNP candidates should let the people know where they stand on policies and issues through a public debate. Our candidates and the others join, but they don’t come, especially those who are okay in the survey. So how would the people know the issues against them or their beliefs where they stand, what they feel about issues? she asked.

Just for Media Mileage

Senatorial candidates of the opposition slate Otso Diretso are challenging administration bets to a debate to gain publicity, Malacañang said. Presidential spokesman, Salvador Panelo said that the administration candidates did not accept the challenge because they did not want to give their opponents media mileage. “I can understand that those from the other side, they want to debate because it would give them publicity. The administration candidates did not want to give their rivals publicity,” Panelo said in an interview.

Atty. Bruce Rivera’s Defense

Atty. Rivera is not surprised with the missing record any other way because they do happen in the Philippines and elsewhere depending on the authority at the time. He just explains the logic of why would Marcos claim that she qualified – just to be humiliated in her political career? The fact that she has been governor of Ilocos Norte. She was also its congresswoman for the longest time when both the Romuadez and Marcos name were a curse. Marcos is indeed very successful without becoming much of a scandal like Robredo, Rivera insinuates.
