The likely top senatorial candidate for election 2019, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos has full commitment to clean and renewable energy. She renews her advocacy on this matter during the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Forum held previously in Laoag City. This gives hope to the country’s local deuterium explorers to produce clean hydrogen fuel as a substitute for gasoline. They are certain that with her influence, they can finally get the pending oil and gas exploration permit from the DOE’s Evaluation Section. However, the “Resistance” is also building up to counteract her ideologies.

The Resistance for Election 2019
The president of the opposition Liberal Party (LP) hopes to see a strong opposition in the 2019 midterm elections. He echoes the statement of his party-mate, Senator Bam Aquino who eyes a “resistance” coalition in next year’s polls. Senator Francis Pangilinan said a genuine opposition is needed to make sure that the country’s “democracy remains vibrant.”
Hydrogen Fuel from Deuterium
Deuterium is abundant in the Philippines. 100% Filipino explorers bank on the President’s good governance to finally drive this project forward. He already endorses the 60 -40% deal in favor of the government to the DOE. No foreign consultants partake in this private-public joint-venture. The aim is to produce clean hydrogen fuel for local consumption first. This can uplift the nation’s economy. They intend to refine locally using a portable mini refinery machine from Korea on site. A Refinery and distilling plant can arise locally in the future on a partnership basis with global players particularly ASEAN.
Hiccups at the DOE Evaluation Section
In a democratic country, contrary to the LP propaganda, lawmakers from the Senate and Congress have great influence in the country’s decision-making process. If both chambers are not in unison with the wishes of the President, the delay for beneficial projects like this one can happen. Foreign investors through the oligarchs want to bring crude oil out. Then refine in their country. Just to sell them back to the Philippines at surging commercial prices. The Filipino consortium turns their offer down. Thus, made them suspect why their permit is withheld. The DOE meanwhile, asks the group to show proof of financial capability. So, this is all about money.
The Resistance’s Unacceptable Liberalism
Back to Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, she believes that the latest expose on alleged irregularities during the 2016 elections could strengthen the election protest of her brother, Bongbong Marcos, against the Vice President. It is also on file that Senator Tito Sotto previously expresses his disgust to decriminalize illegal drug use in the country. Vice President Leni Robredo floats the idea. She insinuates this Liberalism stand of her backers from the “Resistance” slate against President Rodrigo Du30 whom the Marcoses support. Can they still fool people with the dictatorship myth to jeopardize democracy and economic progress of the country?
Cielito “Honeylet” Avanceñ defends him from accusations that he is a killer. Her argument was simple: if the President is a killer, his political enemies would have long been dead. She said this amidst speculations that Du30 has a hand on the drug war killings.

“You’ve seen it, Senator Antonio Trillanes has been hitting us since a week before the election.Then why is he still alive, right? Nothing’s happened to him, so it’s not true. You know that he’s not that kind of person,” Avanceña said.
Drug War Program
She talks to Philippine National Police officials during the launch of the PNP’s “Life After TokHang” program. The project seeks to provide a holistic approach to the drug war. Her husband is widely criticized because of this. Detractors name drop International human rights bodies in their media propaganda just to discredit the President and his campaign.
Aside from Trillanes, Avanceña cites the President’s long-time critic in Davao City, former Speaker Prospero Nograles. “Nograles himself has done not very good things to him in the past, but look how forgiving he is,” she said. She refers to Du30’s burying the hatchet with Nograles.
“He will never instruct anybody, the Armed Forces, or the PNP for that matter, to kill for no reason at all. He just can’t-do it, he’s a lawyer,” she added. The non-Visayan media often misunderstand the Du30’s countless threats to kill violators of the law. They even cited in many instances that he said he will do the killing himself. Little do they know that in the Visayan dialect, such statements just mean that he is serious to implement the law. The question now is, who will the detractors kill next to blame it on the President?
Leni Robredo suffered a major drop in the recent Social Weather Stations or SWS survey. Her net satisfaction rating dropped by 11 points, from a “good” +37 to a “moderate” +26.

Aquino’s Defense on Robredo
Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV said “black propaganda” caused Leni Robredo’s satisfaction rating to decline. He said he expected it with all the black propaganda against her. He justifies it as a small percentage of the respondents. The majority still support her,” Aquino added.
To rebound from the sudden drop, her office aims to continue pushing for her agenda of allegedly uplifting the lives of our marginalized countrymen. But this is difficult since she is often on overseas trips. Her message of hope and solidarity cannot be delivered effectively through words only. She must act on it.
Robredo’s net rating which is the percentage satisfied minus percentage dissatisfied took the biggest dip among the vital government’s officials. 53 percent of respondents are satisfied with Robredo, 27 percent are dissatisfied, and 19 percent are undecided. The survey was conducted between March 25 to 28 through face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults all over the country.
Just a week before the survey, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez threatens to file an impeachment complaint against Robredo over her video to the side event of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, wherein she disclosed the alleged police abuses, with the wrong description of “palit-ulo” scheme or “exchange heads.” This triggers the “palit-VP” or “replace VP” rally at the Luneta Grandstand.
Ex-Pnoy said that during his term, Feb 25 is for EDSA celebration but this time, it is a protest of some sort because of alleged undemocratic treatments to those who speak against the perceived human rights violations of the government. This is a clear indication that their riding on to the military mutiny and installing her mother Cory Aquino to the presidency against the will of the real initiator of the event 31 years ago is a waste. Robredo as usual echoes her boss’s sentiments.

Incappable of Dissent?
Vice President Leni Robredo slams the administration for being “incapable of dissent” after Liberal Party senators are suddenly stripped of their committee positions. She emphasizes that “democracy demands dissent.” Robredo warns that to silence critics happens before. It is evident that she refers to martial rule. The Senate can then be an interesting thig to watch for.
Work with the Administration?
The Vice President swears that critical views of the administration cannot be silenced. She embrases her assumption that the administration is incapable of tolerating dissent. She declares that the Liberal Party allegedly put national interest over politics. Therefore, they are determined to work with the current administration which sounds like a bluff.
Robredo is Not Over with Marcos
Robredo compares the Senate’s stripping off of tiles to an administration obsessed with power monopoly.She added that they intend on marginalizing those who oppose the administration’s views. This happens before., she narrated. In the past, this kind of developments pave the way for a one-man rule of Marcos. She promises that they will not be silenced. The nation deserves no less. Democracy demands dissent, she said. So, how can they work with the government?
Bam Aquino who aspires to be president has a different drama. He repeats the administration’s diclosure that EDSA is for all. So, why do their supporters drive away the Du30 Youth Supporters who are just there to show that EDSA is for all? Well, he better ask Jim Paredes about it.
Bongbong Marcos asks for authorization for IT experts to check the altered server. Bam Aquino scrutinizes the purpose. The audit can clarify all inquiries. Why complicate things? Filipinos deserve detailed explanations on the subject.

Not a Fishing Expedition but Seeking Clarification
Bongbong Marcos is not interested in fishing for some mistakes. He seeks for clarification how exactly the alterations are done, what particular changes are made and whether it affects the flow of the reports or not.
Marcos Seeks for Authorization for IT experts to Look Into the Server
If Bam Aquino asks for the data on Marcos’ speculation that the flow of the election results might be affected by the changes made. That’s precisely why Marcos bothers to ask for the authorization to audit.
What Changes Were Exactly Done?
The IT experts can check all the changes made to the server. They can also explain its purpose and effects. This is a very simple process technically. It is much more complicated requesting for the authorization to audit than to implement the whole auditing process.
Bongbong Marcos wants to make sure that the fraudulent activities did not happen in the servers – because it is wholesale cheating already if ever. He will feel better if for once, the expert would finally clear the doubts that the changes are indeed cosmetic. Bam Aquino seconded the comment.
