In Bongbong Marcos’ vlog, Amajble Adams inquires about the solutions to the bad traffic in EDSA. BBM explains that there should be an efficient transport system so that there will be lesser cars. During the time of PFM, there was the Love bus. It was a comfortable bus system with handy terminals. The Love Bus is one of the first air-conditioned buses in the country. The former First Lady Imelda R. Marcos who was a Metro Manila Governor back then spearheaded it. It was a revolutionary vehicle when it was first launched. The blue paint and with ‘no standing on the aisle’ policy were distinctive. The first terminal of the Love Bus was in Escolta, Manila. From there, the bus goes to Philcoa. It then makes a U-Turn towards East Avenue and Ali Mall terminal. There was also a route from Cubao to Rustan’s Makati and then back to Escolta.

Responding to Comments
Here are just a few of the many really interesting, smart, provocative comments you’ve sent! Keep them coming, Marcos urges his fans on his vlogs.
The Achievements of Former President Ferdinand Marcos
Former Senator Bongbong Marcos also said to Francis Ian Q. Meneses that humility aside, the late President Ferdinand Marcos has lots of achievements that it is difficult for him to feature all the good works of his father on his video blog. It is known that the intentions of the older Marcos were laudable. To improve the economy by increasing agricultural productivity and to dismantle the oligarchy that had dominated the nation were his priorities. His greatest achievements were in the areas of infrastructure development, safeguarding the country against communism, and international diplomacy.
Bongbong Marcos may understand the mobile gaming industry but he admits that he is not keen on playing with it. Games are like digital books that people can learn from. It is understandable that parents can be worried about children spending too much time on them. However, if they know the values of those video games, they would rethink their views otherwise. The key is in the physical and mental balance. If a gamer retains a healthy lifestyle despite the passion for gaming, then it’s a win-win situation. Some Senators may want to eliminate MP or Multiplayer games but it would be hard because of the strong public patronage.

More than 11,000 people can lose their jobs if the ABS-CBN franchise’s renewal is not undertaken. This is torture to those employees. On top of that, other companies like Honda are also moving out of the country. Although Malacañang is confident that job replacements are sufficient, these developments certainly cloud the election 2022 plans of Bongbong Marcos or BBM. Perhaps, instead of wait and see, as her sister Senator Imee Marcos describes his candidacy – a firmer disclosure is what the Filipinos need now to gauge the country’s future.
YouTube video by CNN Philippines DOJ: Resolution needed to allow ABS-CBN to still operate
Hope for ABS-CBN
ABS-CBN may continue to operate with an expired franchise. What would be the basis? A concurrent resolution of Congress. The Justice Department made this remark during a Senate hearing on the media giant’s alleged franchise violations.
Congress may direct the National Telecommunications Commission to issue a provisional franchise to ABS-CBN. This is pending bills calling for its renewal, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said. Guevarra is among the resource persons at the Senate Committee on Public Services inquiry into bills on ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal and into the network’s supposed violations.
Restrictions to ABS-CBN May be Good to BBM
As per Senator Allan Peter Cayetano, the President’s ire on the giant network did not happen for anything. They are still looking into the possibility that ABS-CBN certainly favored some candidates during the 2016 elections. Therefore, since its history has always been an anti-Marcos, the restrictions on them if permitted to continue operating can be beneficial for Bongbong Marcos’ running for the top post in 2022.
Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against the sitting Vice President, Leni Robredo might be far-fetched – but his cleanup and restoration services are not. He has a hand in seeking solutions for almost all major problems in the country especially in the beginning of the year. This has made his political enemies realize that nothing can stop him in devulging the digital fraud committed since the time of former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. Thus explaining the former President’s fury to the late Supreme Court Justice Renato Corona.

The theory also says that it goes before Aquino’s time – that it has something to do with the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ case with former President Corazon Aquino. The PR man of the latter just happened to be a major player in Smartmatic, the automated election system provider of the country.
The Return of OFWs from Iran
The conflict between Iran and the US did a bit of shaking not just to the world but most especially to the Filipinos working in Iran. Marcos eventually made arrangements to bring them back with the country’s Philippine Embassy there. However, the department of foreign affairs conforms that the OFWs in Iran wish to stay. They are willing to wait until the situation dies down and hopefully they can go back to their work at once. Luckily, it did.
BBM Calls to Ban Smartmatic
President Rodrigo Duterte already said that it is “not acceptable” for the government to be associated with any entity “that promotes cheating.” Easier said that done since laws must be in place to make that happen. In fact, his sister, Senator Imee Marcos seeks to end Comelec bondage to Smartmatic. She aspires that Philippine elections to be more transparent and reflective of the people’s will. She filed Senate Bill No. 221. The older Marcos proposes to strike out a provision in Republic Act 9369 which bars other service providers from participating so that Smartmatic becomes the only available choice.
Alternative for the “Cleanup and Restoration Services’
Instead of sticking with Smartmatic, Marcos suggests a “hybrid” way of conducting the polls in 2022. “We have manual voting, manual counting, and electronic transmission. Hybrid and you vote like before. You have the counting like before. You have watchers, but there’s an additional feature the tech has moved, Livestream it,” he suggested. By live-streaming the voting and counting processes in rural areas, Marcos said local election officers can then question or correct figures inconsistent with the national canvassing of votes.
“The technology exists, let’s use it,” the former senator insisted.
Corona after Corona
There are jokes going around social media that remind the injustices done to the former Chief Justice. Marcos is only one of the three senators at that time who voted for his favor during his impeachment verdict. Now, another Corona – Novel Coronavirus from China haunts the world. One trial may come after the other but one thing is sure. Marcos is bound to continue the protest whatever it takes. The good thing is he has ample money for it. So, BBM’s cleanup and restoration services for the country is well on its way.
The former senator and son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos recently said that he is a candidate for a position in the 2022 national elections. The presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo immediately retaliates by saying that Bongbong Marcos must accept whatever the results will be in the electoral protest if he runs. This may include his possible defeat,she added. BBM can only reciprocate Robredo’s advise. In fact, it goes to both of them. The sitting VP should have known that a Supreme Court decision on the case is more likely. This can be detrimental to her fight.

As a lawyer, Robredo should know that it is one’s decision to accept any verdict from a protest regardless of the result. She has no rights by all means to force Marcos to accept the outcome or not. She can only pray that the case can drag along longer for it to be moot during the election in May 2022.
Will the Supreme Court Favor Bongbong Marcos?
Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta dismisses public apprehensions that his appointment as the top magistrate could affect the poll protest in favor of former senator Marcos. His FEM burial vote is the only one that favors the Marcoses. However, experts say that the changes in the Supreme Court make it very difficult for Robredo. This is because, most magistrates are appointees of the President.
Appointees of the President in the Supreme Court
President Rodrigo Duterte appoints two new justices to the Supreme Court. Associate Justices Edgardo delos Santos and Mario Lopez. They took their oath in Malacañang last year. They replaced retired justices Antonio Carpio and Francis Jardeleza, respectively. Duterte has yet to appoint one more associate justice to complete the 15-member high court. It is now dominated by 11 Duterte appointees. This includes Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta.
Peralta’s Leadership is Until 2022
Peralta is the third chief magistrate to be appointed by Duterte. This is after the historic ouster of Maria Lourdes Sereno. The first two are Teresita Leonardo De Castro retires as head of the Supreme Court after a two-month stint. Then, Lucas Bersamin, steps down on October 18 upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70. Peralta will lead the high court until March 2022.
Strategic Election Move
Marcos talks about the election strategy to not announce the specifics of his candidacy earlier. However, his running for a post alone is already significant in itself. If he’s lucky enough to emerge as the winner of the protest, he can have a lot of sympathies even from non-Marcos supporters for the Presidency. He can also opt to run as VP again should the decision is unfavorable to him. Perhaps, with a running mate strong enough to win and who is also willing to step down for him to become President.

CJ Lucas Bersamin said he intends to delay the vote on the electoral protest. It is a public perception that since he’s an appointee of President Rodrigo Du30, he naturally favors Bongbong Marcos. Therefore, he does not want Marcos’ victory to happen during his term. Nontheless, the majority wins and with the 11-2 voting which is the former Senator’s first round win happens. Meanwhile, Erwin Tulfo explains the success of Marcos and Robredo’s fake news.

‘I DID NOT LIKE TO TAKE PART IN IT’
“I wanted to delay the vote because I did not like to take part in it, because I did not like the public, like the media, speculating that I cooked or orchestrated the result,” he said. “But I always told you: You cannot cook things up here inside the Supreme Court because there are too many people involved.
The Highest Number of Votes Does NOT Determine the Winner
Erwin Tulfo explains that BBM never said that he has more votes than Robredo in her bailiwick. He only asks the tribunal where his votes from the INC are. The justices only have to decide according to the evidences if it’s likely that there’s a massive fraud during the 2016 elections that prevent Marcos from becoming the rightful VP. Out of the 11 magistrates, only two want the dismissal of the protest. Therefore, it continues. The figures of the recount votes won’t matter at this time.
The Queen of Fake News
Robredo’s speculation that she gains 15,000 more votes is a big fake news. Her political allies also ride on with it by organizing a Congress proclaimation. They are fooling themselves out because the recount continues because there’s substantial evidence that the election was fraudulent. Filipinos can only expect from now on that Marcos would soon become VP then, as per the President’s promise, his destiny dictates that he is the new President of the Philippines.
Analysis: Bersamin Hints on the Marcos Take Over
The outgoing Chief Justic’s action only confirms that BBM is indeed the real Vice President. As a result of his unifying act he has to face bad survey results that he can’t do anything with. Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin has this to say: “Don’t be angry.” The Social Weather Station’s survey for the third quarter of 2019 shows that the Supreme Court’s net satisfaction rating went down to +41 from +54 last June. Little do the people know that Bersamin knows that it would be BBM indeed that would emerge as the winner.
