Bongbong Marcos’ Recount Bid Not Affected by Bautista’s Impeachment Correction

bid





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Some media’s misleading headline that reads; “Bautista Welcomes his Impeachment Dismissal” or something in that context created a bit of stir for a while. More news clarifies that only the correction plea got dismissed. In fact, his estranged wife, Patricia Bautista’s testimonial is set at the hearing. Whatever the outcome is, COMELEC Chief, Andres Bautista’s case is not any more relevant to Bongbong Marcos’ recount bid. This is because the first course of action that questions the integrity of 2016 automated election is already cleared out by the PET for the immediate recount to take place. The second course of action in Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo is about to begin.

First Course of Action Out

In a resolution dated August 29, the PET junked Marcos’ first cause of action for being “meaningless and pointless.” The tribunal said that “allowing the first cause of action and the annulment of the proclamation to continue would be an exercise in futility and would have no practical effect.” The PET then ruled that immediate recount must be prioritized in the selected pilot provinces which Marcos welcomed.



Impeachment Correction Denied

The House rejects the motion to admit a substitute impeachment complaint. It seeks to correct the verification errors of the first one filed against Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairperson Andres Bautista. The committee just tackles the first impeachment complaint against Bautista if it is sufficient in form and substance. At least 27 members voted against the motion for substitution, while only two members voted in support of the motion to admit the substitute verification.



Bautista’s Wife to Attest for Truth

The estranged wife of Commission on Elections Chairman Andres Bautista attends the poll chief’s impeachment hearing at the House of Representatives to “attest to the truth.” Patricia Bautista earlier said that she would be attesting to the authenticity of the impeachment case filed by lawyer Ferdinand Topacio‏ and former Negros Oriental Rep. Jacinto Paras against her husband.








Recount Bid Belongs to the 2nd Course

Bongbong Marcos vehemently denies that he’s got something to do with Mrs. Bautista’s squeals against her own husband. He also assures the press that he and his wife won’t meddle with marital affairs. However, Marcos believes that the estranged wife’s testimony must be heard after she signs an affidavit on that regard. No matter how the COMELEC Chair’s case develops, that has no effect anymore on his protest. The PET has already ruled that the VP Post issue is to be resolved only through the recount.

Trillanes’ Stunts: Yellow Cult Propaganda against Ferdinand Marcos now on Du30

propaganda





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

President Du30 who goes against the rule of oligarchs is now under the LP propaganda attacks. This is clear in the Singapore stunts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. That is not different from the Martial Law history as written by the Yellow Cult. Trillanes thought that he can bring down the Philippine leader by proving that he is a liar. He even enjoys the support of most mainstream media. However, the President already warned that he will do to Trillanes what he has done to him and his family. It’s a game plan. Lie after Lies.






Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net

[VIDEO]: President Du30 said that the number of the bank account that Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV used to verify in Singapore is the one he shortened and not the real one as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson.



Misleading Headline

It reads in most mainstream media that President Du30 admits that he invented the number of the bank account Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. This is after the coverage of the Senator’s trip to Singapore hits media channels.  The truth is, the President shortened the actual number as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson. He’s actually amused that his trick worked. That triggered Trillanes to fly immediately to Singapore just to discredit him.



Marcos Regime Victors

The victors of the Marcos Regime demise was led by the houses of Cojuangco and Lopez. They run the biggest media empire before Martial Law.  They consummate links with politicians. The Lopezes were experts in propaganda. They know how to mold a nation’s consciousness for its benefit. Trillanes is one good example of a government official who works for his own interest and not for the people.



Marcos now has the Social Media Advantage

The Marcoses never become skilled in, or they are not as appreciative of, the value of propaganda as the Lopezes. When the late Marcos was successful to declare Martial Law, his accusation that the Lopezes led the “extreme Right” that allied itself with the “extreme Left” was not properly circulated. It’s only now that social media exists as a powerful tool for everyone to use for information dissemination that the truth becomes a number game.








No Denial

The President operates without pretentions. This is the reason why most people love him despite his vulgarity. He vows to destroy Trillanes as he destroys him. The mocking Senator is known for his extreme lies. Du30 simply gives him a taste of his own medicine. The propaganda stints basically signal the beginning of another battle. It will not be surprising that the President would strongly push for a Bongbong Marcos presidency as he sacrifices himself as the bait for the yellow cult.

Sept 21 Marks the Civility of the Marcoses Particularly Bongbong and Imee

civility





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As the “yellows” get ready to oust the President of Sept. 21, Du30 calls the Commission on Human Rights Chair Chito Gascon names. This coincides with the 45th anniversary of Martial Law declaration under the Marcos regime. Since the time of the late Ferdinand Marcos, politics has been passionate and personal. Word wars are common sometimes fist fights can happen. However, the Marcos patriarch, his wife, and children maintain their civility despite the odds. They never use “below the belt” expressions to describe their enemies.

Demonized by Society

The Marcos family has been severely demonized in social media memes, rally placards, and history textbooks. This includes those written by journos who pretend to be historians. It spread through classroom lectures, speeches, training workshops for history teachers, creative works, and artistic performances. Even homilies of priests during masses also contain unfair judgments. Nevertheless, the Marcoses provide society a powerful lesson on civility in political discourse.



Example of Civility

The Marcos political dynasty, from former President Ferdinand Marcos to his wife Rep. Imelda Marcos shows civility. This continued to their more politically engaged children, former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Gov. Imee Marcos. Thus, a shining example of civility in political discourse. The third child, Irene-Marcos Araneta, is a model of dignity in silence.



Restrained Talks

Imee Marcos is always restrained when she talks about their political enemies. She did not launch a vitriolic counter-offensive even against Rep. Rudy Fariñas. She never said any demeaning word against their political enemies and critics. On the other hand, in the election controversy that surrounds the 2016 vice-presidential elections, there is no single instance that Bongbong Marcos directly accused Vice President Leni Robredo of being a cheat and a fraud – contrary to her being vocal on calling his family “thieves” with regards to the wealth for humanity.








Bad-Mouthing Saga

Meanwhile, the legislators, who strongly criticized President Du30, are part of the coalition who wants to unseat him. That would favor their LP bet, Robredo. Senators Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros and Antonio Trillanes IV and Representatives Teddy Baguilat, Tom Villarin and Gary Alejano attended its launch. They are all bad-mouthing the President and the Marcoses. Du30 retaliates but the Marcoses remain as they are.

Leni Robredo Disputes Assumption of Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest Win

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

VP Leni Robredo calls Bongbong Marcos a liar on his election protest assumptions. She denies that the Supreme Court decision to proceed to the recount favors him. She’s also not happy that his sister, Gov. Imee Marcos tells the Ilocano crowd not to be impatient because her brother would soon assume the VP post during their patriarch’s Centennial birth anniversary celebration.

Hints on Marcos’ Victory

The governor hints at a possible near victory in the protest her brother filed to question the results of the 2016 vice presidential elections. She calls her brother “vice president” during a speech ahead of what would have been their father’s 100th birthday. Gov. Marcos also tells the crowd not to be impatient because it can happen soon.



History Continues

The Marcos family also celebrates the National Historical Commission of the Philippines’ recognition of the Marcos monument in Batac, Ilocos Norte. “History is not done indeed with Ferdinand Marcos. Winter is not done with the Marcos legacy,” Imee Marcos stressed this.



Robredo’s Reaction

Robredo cites the Supreme Court ruling that shows the alleged lies of the Marcoses. She said that the first course of action in Marcos’ electoral protest is even junked. They spread allegations that are not true that marred the integrity of the 2016 election but to no avail, she added.








Immediate Recount

The PET, however, explains that Marcos’ questioning the integrity of the whole election can only slow down the process. Therefore, it is necessary to dismiss the first course to get to the second course of action. This is because they believe that only the recount can resolve who really won the VP race in 2016 which Marcos welcomes.

PET Orders Recount in Bongbong Marcos’ Pilot Provinces First

pilot





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The PET ordered the initial recount of votes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental first. This is to prove whether or not the rest of Marcos’ protest has merit. Bongbong Marcos said that it is about to start in November and is expected to be completed in December this year.

No Witnesses for Anomalies

Marcos’ lawyer George Garcia told the Supreme Court that Marcos will no longer present witnesses. This is for the annulment part of his petition. It’s because their allegations of electoral fraud can best be proven through a ballot recount. Their camp no longer plans to present testimonial evidence or witnesses to support his allegations of widespread cheating. Particularly in 3 provinces where Vice President Leni Robredo won.



Marcos Drops Nullification of Votes

In his electoral protest against the Vice President, Marcos wants votes to be nullified in Basilan, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao. He cites the “widespread presence of terrorism, violence, threats, coercion, force, and intimidation.”



Not Abandonment of Election Fraud Protest

Atty. Garcia clarifies that; “The waiver of testimonial evidence in so far as the 3rd cause of action is concerned is not an abandonment of the electoral frauds, anomalies, and irregularities alleged in the electoral protest. These may be proven by the ballots which are ‘the best repository of the sovereign will,'” Garcia added.








Unaccounted Votes in Pilot Provinces

He also explained that the “unaccounted votes” for the position of vice president can be verified through the judicial and manual recount. This goes with the revision of election paraphernalia in 36,465 clustered precincts under 27 provinces and 5 highly urbanized cities as well.
