Convenient Digital Functions

The card also functions as a valid government ID card. On top of that, it is also an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Card. It can be used to transact with the city government,  receive cash allowances, stipends and other cash benefits.




Efficient Government Services

Residents can use the card to pay fees and taxes, personal remittances and other financial transactions. City government employees receive salaries and allowances from it.




Citizen Empowerment

The Makatizen Card is a collaboration of the city government of Makati with Globe Telecom, its subsidiary G-XChange, Inc., and iBayad Online Ventures, Inc. Around 1,000 functioning sample cards are tested at the Makati City Hall. “It takes us a step nearer to achieving our goal of empowering everyone, including those in the marginalised sectors of society, to enjoy a better quality of life,” Makati Mayor Abigail Binay said.









First Digital City

The card’s wide range of digital and mobile services offers the people of Makati the convenience and cost-effective methods of managing their day-to-day obligations,” Binay added. “We intended this unsolicited project proposal from Globe, GCash, and iBayad as the springboard to transform Makati into the country’s first digital city.” “For the Philippines to truly become a digital nation, we need to take advantage of the new technology and find ways to innovate to allow improvement in every corner of our country,” according to Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.

Nancy Binay Displays the Forgiving Heart, Makes Cayetano and Grace Poe Forget

forgiving





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Many voters asked Binay supporters – why Binay? It all boils down to the good heart. That’s how the family is known in their own community. No one can contest that despite the black media propaganda against them they remain compassionate. The Binays share the same forgiving heart as the Marcoses.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: A little over a year ago, a warm exchange between Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Grace Poe, and Nancy Binay was unimaginable. But on Wednesday, May 17, ahead of Cayetano’s final speech as senator, it happened.Senator Binay approached Cayetano and wished him luck on his new stint as foreign affairs secretary.



Nancy Binay’s Forgiving Heart

Senator Nancy Binay approaches Senator Alan Peter Cayetano to wish him luck on his new stint as foreign affairs secretary. It might be awkward given what Cayetano did to her father, the former Vice President Jejomar Binay accusing him of corruption using the Senate blue ribbon televised hearings. This really ruined his chances to become president and removed him from the top spot of presidentiables.




Teasing Senator

Senator Panfilo Lacson teases Binay saying that her Goodluck message is so contrived. This created the playful atmosphere in the Senate where jokes and sarcasm are not any more serious issues unlike during the 2016 elections.




Cayetano’s Response

Referring to his instant confirmation, Cayetano said that it must be because of two things: either they honestly want him to be in the DFA or they just want him out of the Senate quickly. That catches the attention of Grace Poe.









Senator Grace Poe’s Joke

Upon hearing Cayetano’s response, Senator Poe eagerly said: Good that you’re naturally aware. I don’t have anything to do with that, she said. Then added that with all that they have been through, it is just proper to move on and leave all the pains behind.

The Tales of Influential Marcos-Aquino Mothers on Son’s Presidency

mothers





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Mothers know best they say. This is a review of what these two influential mothers said about their son’s presidency quest. One was against – and the other is proud to say that it is her ultimate dream.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Former First Lady Imelda Marcos celebrates her 86th birthday. Her wish is for her son, Senator Bongbong Marcos, to run for President.



Imelda Marcos’ Dream

Bongbong Marcos sais that it is the dream of his mother, former first lady, and now Ilocos Rep. Imelda Marcos, for him to become president. “Of course, that’s her dream, he confirmed. If she could nominate me for the position of pope, she would,” he said with a smile. That only shows how Imelda is so certain that her son can make a difference for the welfare of his constituents since she also dreams big for the country’s progress.




Cory Aquino’s Fear

Since the 1987 EDSA revolution that toppled Bongbong’s father, the late Ferdinand Marcos – Binay has been the confidante of the that President Cory Aquino. Binay was aware of the forecast of a Chinese fortune teller that the son of Cory will bring chaos to the country. This is why she was hesitant when the idea flows. She made her fear known in her death bed, said Binay. He was also a witness when Cory said; “Let the people suffer – so that they will hate the Marcoses”.



Mothers with the Same Dream

Mothers generally wish for their children’s success. “My mother generally thinks in political terms because that has been her life,” Bongbong said. He added that one cannot prevent a loving mother from pursuing her aspirations for her beloved son. Bongbong confidently confirmed that he shares his mother’s dream for him to become president. This is why he wants to do more for the country. Currently, he just spent P36 million for his electoral protest against Leni Robredo for the Filipinos’ votes to be properly counted – may it be in favor of him or not. It is good enough just to know the truth of who really won in the 2016 Vice Presidential elections.









The Presidency for Bongbong Marcos

“I have seen the presidency from the different side more than the other people have,” Bongbong said. People normally see just the grandeur of it and the power that the president holds. I wish I could do that, but I have also seen the other side of it, and I have a more balanced idea,” he disclosed. He also explained that anybody can be president, but not everybody can be a good president. “There is no use being a president if you are not going to be a good one. It’s very hard.”

It Looks Like Bongbong Marcos Will Have the Last Laugh

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It is evident that when the president said in China that the country will have a new Vice President if Bongbong Marcos wins the electoral protest, he was not joking. As a law-abiding president, he does not interfere or influence government agencies to do their jobs – but one thing is obvious; Marcos is highly favored not just by the President but by most people around him.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: ‘Sayang si Gina. I really like her passion,’ says the President after losing Gina Lopez as a Cabinet member.



CA Independence

Malacañang explains the president’s statement when he said that; there was lobby money highlights the existence of certain vested interests in the appointment of officials. This does not in any way diminish the integrity of the Commission on Appointments. The President respects the independence of the CA. He did not interfere with the confirmation process of ex-DENR Secretary, Gina Lopez shows his deference to the body.”




DOJ’S Stand

Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre said that turning Napoles a state witness on the P10-billion pork scam is what the President wants reinvestigated to indict more. Malacañang clarified this saying: “Government is clear, that there is no policy shift on how we deal with Napoles. Neither is there an agreement forged between the Du30 administration and Napoles.” In any case, it revealed that the case was not deeply scrutinized during the Aquino administration because there are Liberal Party members that can be implicated. If so, this frees the Marcoses from corruption allegations because their accusers are actually the corrupt ones.



History Revision or Bongbong Marcos Take-Over

LP people always talk about Marcos family’s attempt to revise history. This is despite the testimonials of Enrile, Honasan, and Binay against the Aquinos. They might be players during the EDSA Revolt by they are all for Marcos. They, in fact, are the true crusaders of Bongbong Marcos’ return to the government. The partial Government’s compensation of martial law victims also revealed that the Marcos heirs already paid these claimants well in advance – but the Aquino administration delayed it. Most of all burying the late Marcos as a hero was made possible under the circumstances. The Supreme Court allowed it. We can only guess the outcome of the ongoing electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo.









AFP Appointees

Du30’s announcement that Año would be the next DILG chief stops speculations that the younger Marcos would take over the post. Año is the latest AFP official in the current Cabinet. He also named former AFP chief Roy Cimatu as the head of Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Other former military chiefs in the Cabinet are National Irrigation Administration head Ricardo Visaya and national security adviser Hermogenes Esperon. The president boasted this because he needs strong men to implement what’s good for the country amidst destabilization efforts. The country is not under martial law yet but Du30 seems to be getting ready for a take-over. Will it be fulfilling his campaign promise to give the presidency to Marcos?

Robredo’s Greatest Excuse is No Budget for Projects but can’t she Raise Funds?

budget





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo’s biggest excuse is having no budget for the projects that need the attention of the Office of the Vice President right now. This is allegedly why all she could do when she was HUDCC Chair was to report the problem but nothing could be done.






Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Leni Robredo knows about the various problems in the housing sector and others but reiterates that the Office of the Vice President has no budget for projects.



Just Reported Housing Problems

Robredo complained that she has reported many problems already as far as the HUDCC or housing for the poor is concerned but no actions were taken. Perhaps, the Vice President did not realize that her job is to offer solutions to the problems and not just report them.




More Hindrances to do VP Work

She also mentioned that there are many hindrances now to do her work because there are various destructions. She may be referring to Marcos’ electoral protests against her and the continuing impeachment complaints.



Forces Behind the President

The Vice president acknowledges that there are forces behind the president that trigger fights between her and PDu30. This she said is due to their own personal interests and nothing to do with her various disagreements with him.









No Budget for Projects

Former Vice President Jejomar Binay leaves ₱500 million budget for Robredo. The Office of the Vice President (OVP) during Binay’s last year as VP has spent less than 20 percent of its budget for 2016. What he left is enough for her to spend within the remaining six months of that year. How much is not enough for the OVP’s yearly budget? What should she do if the department has no budget for her projects? Whine? She should learn from Binay how to raise funds because she has proven that nothing can be stolen from the government. The greatness of a leader can be measured on how he or she can provide for his or her constituents through private-public cooperative efforts. After all, she spent half a billion pesos to make herself win questionably.




Right Political Attitude: Filipino-American supporters of Robredo grateful to Ramos and Binay
