President Du30 Responded to Robredo’s Constitution Challenge as De Castro Vies for Supreme Court CJ Post

supreme court





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 rejects Vice President Leni Robredo as his successor. Robredo challenges him to follow the constitution. Although, she may not be the legitimate VP. She allegedly won because of the PCOS manipulation. Besides, Du30 does not think she can improve anything in the country. Only leaders like the VP Protestant Bongbong Marcos or Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero can take his place, he said. Robredo claimed that she defeated both candidates. This is despite the massive evidence of fraud found against her. She seems to forget the nature of Du30. Note that the line of succession is already Marcos-friendly. This is with Senate President Tito Sotto and House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.  That secures Marcos’ VP post in case of Robredo’s impeachment. SolGen Jose Calida’s Quo Warranto Petition is another alternative. All these happen as Associate Justice Teresita de Castro vies for Supreme Court Chief Justice.

[VIDEO]: Pinag-iisipan na raw ni Pangulong Rodrigo Du30 na mag-resign dahil pagod na raw siyang habulin ang ilegal na droga at korupsiyon. Pero ang gusto niyang pumalit sa kanya, ang military junta. O di kaya si Senador Chiz Escudero o si Bongbong Marcos. Pero hindi raw si Vice President Leni Robredo na nakasaad pa man din sa Saligang Batas.




Inability to Lead

President Du30 is trusting the military to find a new capable head of state. “They are the only organizations that can control the situation when everything breaks loose,” Du30 says. He trusts the military much more than he does Robredo. Case in point is Naga City, Robredo’s City, which is a hotbed for crime and illegal drugs.




Robredo’s Camp Lashes Back

Robredo’s camp believes that Duterte’s endorsements are not all that valuable. Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s Spokesperson, cites two of Duterte’s appointees. Former tourism secretary, Wanda Teo, garnered the outrage of the public when she had a multimillion-peso ad placed in her brother’s show. She immediately resigned, though. Now, NFA chief Jason Aquino is under fire by senators as the price of NFA rice increases.

Preferred Successors

Chiz Escudero and Bongbong Marcos are the preferred successors of President Du30. However, Marcos is the only one who has constitutional rights to take over his position through his electoral protest. Hinting at a resignation in May, Du30 is banking that Robredo can be impeached and have either the House Speaker or the Senate President serve as temporary replacement. Their tenure as VP is until Marcos’ Protest pushes through and he is declared the real winner.









Alleged Fraud in the 2016 Elections

Various officials have already made references to the alleged fraud in the 2016 elections. These public servants include members of the Presidential Communications Operations Office, among other politicians close to the president. Marcos has identified pilot provinces in his protest to which the Supreme Court, standing as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal is now conducting a recount.




The SolGen’s Tactic with the Supreme Court

Apart from the frustration of not being able to fulfill his number one promise, to end corruption, Du30’s only concern is his doubts about Robredo’s competence. He could step down if Robredo is removed as his successor. This would secure the post for Marcos with Sotto and Arroyo in the line of succession. However, there is still Solicitor General Calida who might come up with a brilliant tactic. We can remember his Quo Warranto Petition on the issue of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. Saying that she was not qualified for the position in the first place. Therefore, her appointment can be void as voted against her by the majority of the magistrates including De Castro. How much more if she becomes the Supreme Court Chief Justice?

Du30’s Verdict?: Bongbong Marcos to be President as fast as When He was Cheated in the 2016 Election

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 was not joking when he told Gov. Imee Marcos that he will pass the presidency to Bongbong Marcos. In fact, the alliance of Binay, Honasan, Marcos, and Du30 knew this all along even before the election. Although at that time, no one ever thought that VP Leni Robredo would win against Marcos. It was just very obvious that the direct tampering of the server made the almost one million votes lead of Marcos disappear in favor of the questionable Vice President in the 2016 election. Now, Du30 is true to his word of giving up the highest power of the land to Marcos. He hints that he will be President as fast as when he was cheated.





Youtube video YouTube Video by Rappler

[VIDEO]: If former senator Bongbong Marcos wins his case against Vice President Leni Robredo, President Rodrigo Duterte ‘will make true his word’ to step down, says Malacañang.




The Presidential Spokesperson’s Confirmation

As soon as Marcos wins his case against Vice President Leni Robredo, President Du30 ‘will make true his word’ to step down, says Malacañang.  He will likely resign, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said. This was the logical “conclusion” one would make from the recent the President’s statements that he was ready to resign if the ideal leader will take his place in Malacañang.




Likely Successors

President Du30 has always been open about his admiration for and close friendship with Marcos. The latter is the namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The President said on Tuesday, August 14, that he would step down if someone like Marcos or Senator Francis Escudero were next in line. However, even before the election, the President already said that if he wins as President, he will turn over the Presidency to Bongbong Marcos. At that time, Marcos was a sure winner for the Vice Presidency until a direct tampering activity was obvious in the data collected by the country’s IT experts.

Constitutional Leader

Escudero, who ran alongside Sen. Grace Poe, conceded defeat in 2016. He is a member of the Senate majority. Marcos, meanwhile, is in the middle of an election protest against Vice President Robredo. He accused her of cheating in 2016. In a speech hinting at resignation in May, Du30 told government officials and congressional leaders: “Anyway I really want to resign from office. Between the two preferred successors of Du30, only Marcos has constitutional rights to take over through his protest. However, Robredo can be impeached with either House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo or Senate President as the temporary replacement until Marcos is declared the real winner of the 2016 VP race.









The Supreme Court is the Key on the Election Protest

The PET, the body that will decide whether or not Marcos is the rightful vice president, is the Supreme Court. It sits as an electoral tribunal. The SC is currently composed of 5 Du30 appointees out of 15. By 2022, 13 out of 15 will be his appointees. Marcos currently petitions the PET for Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa to inhibit from is election protest. He said that he is biased all throughout as Pnoy’s appointee. At the moment, a new Supreme Court Chief Justice is about to emerge. If a pro-Marcos head magistrate will be appointed, there’s a big chance for him to unseat Robredo. As promised, Du30 will give way to Marcos like lightning. Just like when his father was buried at the Heroes’ Cemetery while the opposition was sleeping.




Bongbong will be President before 2022

The current developments are actually leaning towards the realization of a prophecy. Bong, bong, bong…hail the pearl of the orient. A new leader has emerged with his name sounding like a bell, it was written. This is believed to be the era where no one can block the progress of the Philippines. Truly, the country will be great again. Thanks to President Du30.

Decrypted Images Revive Robredo’s Removal other than Marcos’ Election Protest

protest





By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos said that his camp filed a Strong Manifestation with Motion regarding the use of decrypted ballot images in lieu of the original paper ballots for his election protest in numerous clustered precincts. He said that the decrypted ballot images “have been compromised.” This is in line with Atty. Glenn Chong’s revelations at the Senate. However, the strong force of the opposition is still felt in the Congress, Senate, and the Supreme Court. So, the outcome of Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo is uncertain. Speculations have it that since the new Senate President, Tito Sotto and the newly elected House Speaker, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is pro-Marcos, the line of succession is secured by the administration. That’s where Sol-Gen Jose Calida can come in – just like in the case of former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to perhaps remove Robredo from the second top position of the land.

[VIDEO]: Glenn Chong ibinulgar na ang “Smartmatic COMELEC tandem naglagay ng Square to cheat and Tamper DECRYPTED BALLOT IMAGES.” This is a clear Hocus PCOS, election sabotage by Smartmatic COMELEC tandem and violation of the Philippine constitution election law.




Robredo’s Opposition

Romulo Macalintal, the lead counsel of Robredo is asking the PET to comment on Marcos’ opposition. Marcos is opposing the use of the decrypted ballot images for the electoral recount. He stands that the images have been compromised. Robredo’s camp is now appealing to the PET to junk Marcos’  opposition.




Marco’s Strong Manifestation

First of all, the integrity of the decrypted ballot images is uncertain. Hence, Marcos’ camp is filing a Strong Manifestation against the use of the decrypted ballot images. The former senator believes that the images have been compromised. Therefore, he is asking the PET to hold the use of these images at least until the issue on its integrity is resolved.

Macalintal’s Argument on the Election Protest

Macalintal argues against Marcos pronouncements of the compromised ballot images. He says that Marcos’ camp has yet to present evidence to support his pronouncements. Atty. Chong disputes this and insists that IT professionals know the real score of the digital fraud as presented.









Compromised SD Cards

There are 26 SD cards, and an initial determination made three months ago suspect them to have the data. However, half of the SD cards suddenly turned up blank. Furthermore, Chong reveals that one of the SD cards, with Serial No. BUF0631 have been tampered with. This discovery of the Data in the SD cards serves as a proof of fraud, Marcos’ lawyer Vic Rodriquez says. The Comelec has also shown incompetence on how Smartmatic’s system is working, Edmund Casino, an IT expert says. The ballots are supposed to have oblongs in them but the images show squares. As the images are supposed to be an exact replica of the ballots this shows that they are fake.




Solicitor General Jose Calida’s Power

Solicitor General Jose Calida has served a key role in ousting CJ Sereno. Calida urged the Supreme Court to uphold its decision to oust former Chief Justice Sereno. This despite Sereno’s accusation of forum shopping and insistence that she is a person of proven integrity. The SC needed to settle the legal controversy, however, and the SC rules in favor of Calida’s petition. Now Calida is leaving it to the Comelec. He is doing so in order to defend it on the ongoing electoral protest. Consequently, he has filed a manifestation that backs the 50% ballot shading threshold. This favors the interest of Marcos’ camp. His Quo Warranto strategy is also an alternative to remove Robredo from office.

Bongbong Marcos’ Post Now Safe with Arroyo in Case of Robredo’s Impeachment

impeachment





By: Elena Grace Flores

Congresswoman and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo showed her competence in front of the world and America’s former President Barack Obama when it comes to the economy. She has turned the ailing economy of the country starting in 2001 when she assumed the presidency. Concrete economic infrastructures were created that spared the Philippines from the global economic crises in 2008. It would be beneficial if Arroyo can take over as temporary Vice President should the impeachment case against VP Leni Robredo pushes through. She is in the line of succession like Senate President Tito Sotto. Bongbong Marcos even vouches on her achievements in setting up economic infrastructures in terms of investments, exports, and other financial facilities through his BBM Vlog 24.





Youtube video YouTube Video by; Innovation Philippines

[VIDEO]: Personally, I know that Gloria, given her expertise that comes from her nine-year rule as president, will lead Congress well. She knows what is good for the country, especially in terms of the economy. Her legacy as president was an economic reform that gave us good economic growth. I’ve been a journalist for nearly seven decades and have walked the corridors of power. I can say that Gloria was among the best presidents we ever had.” – Emil Jurado




Praiseworthy Achievements

During the leadership of Former President Arroyo, she had made tough decisions. But these tough decisions made the Philippine Economy prosper. The GDP (gross domestic product) showed an average of 5.0% during her term from 2001 up to the first quarter of 2008.  This focus on prowess in the handling of economy earned praise from her former classmate in Georgetown, former US President Bill Clinton.




Tough Decisions

One of the toughest rules the Arroyo Administration implemented was the controversial e-VAT law. This was the centerpiece of her economic reform agenda.  Implemented on November of 2005, It aims to help in raising revenue for the country’s large budget deficit. The administration targets to have a sound national budget by 2010. These measures helped to contribute to a stronger Peso by boosting confidence in the government’s fiscal capacity. It is no surprise that the Philippine Peso was the best performing currency in East Asia for 2005-06.

A Stronger Peso

In 2007, during Arroyo’s administration, the Peso’s value has raised by nearly 20%. This makes it Asia’s best-performing currency. This was made possible through the increased remittances of OFWs as well as the strong domestic economy Arroyo have cultured. Even with the growth of the GDP in place. Arroyo still has the drive to push these areas even further.









Empowering the OFW

The inflation has reached its highest for 17 years in August of 2008. The annual rates go as high as 12.5 percent compared from the record low 2.8 percent in 2007. As the fuel and energy prices went down, the inflation rate eased at 8.8 percent. Pnoy claimed achievements on the continuing GDP Growth during his time. But It was Arroyo who pushed to nurture jobs overseas for Filipinos as a choice and not the singular option.




The BRICS Club

The economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are well known for their tremendous growth potential. They are called the BRICS club. These countries also have their share of economic and political woes. China has been the main force driving this group. China has transformed their economic structure from a focus on exports to an economy that relies on domestic consumption. During her administration, one of Arroyo’s successful achievements is the lower reliance on imports. Arroyo’s economic principles are clearly in line with the Marcos-Du30 partnership. She can also safeguard the VP post just in case Robredo is impeached or removed for whatever reason.

Bongbong Marcos Explains Leadership Changes for the Economy and Technology Advancement

Economy





By: Elena Grace Flores

It’s the economy, stupid” is a slight variation of the phrase “The economy, stupid”, which James Carville had coined as a campaign strategist of Bill Clinton‘s successful 1992 presidential campaign against sitting president George H. W. Bush. Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s version was telling Pnoy; It’s the economy, student. Meanwhile, Bongbong Marcos talks about the track record of now Speaker Arroyo when it comes to the infrastructure of the economy when she was President. He said that such leadership change including Senator Tito’s Sotto’s takeover as the Senate President is crucial for the progress of the country.





Youtube video by; Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: It turns out Clinton was right when he said, “It’s the economy, stupid.”




The First Female Speaker of the House

The anti-Arroyo faction must be outraged but former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo wins the house speakership post. She is the first female ever to be Speaker of the Philippines’ House of Representatives. The courageous woman is also the only former Philippine President to become speaker. While it is the first time in over a decade that in the middle of a President’s term the Speaker is replaced, Marcos is confident with Arroyo. There is no leader who has a greater sense of the economy as the former President, he said.




A Long Planned Transfer of Power

Without hesitation, Pimentel had formally nominated Sotto as his successor. Sotto now serves as the second Senate president of the 17th Congress. The transfer of power had long been planned, Pimentel says as he resigned from the position. It is done so peacefully and willingly.

The Impact of AI on the Economy

With the development of artificial intelligence comes the elimination of some jobs. But surely with this technology, we can witness the evolution of most professional landscapes. As research predicts, 1.8 million jobs will be gone by 2020, but 2.3 million jobs would be created. While the AI technology will lead to the extinction of repetitive jobs, we can see it morph and enhance creative jobs. These things should be considered while looking at the economy, Marcos says.









The Depreciation of Peso

The peso is weakening. With weak Philippine trade numbers as well as expectations of an interest rate increase in the US, the peso remains weak against the dollar. This according to Jonathan Ravelas, Chief Market Strategist of BDO Unibank Inc. This will certainly work to the benefit of exporters and dollar earners, as well as the families of OFWs, Cid Terosa, Dean of the University of Asia and the Pacific School of Economics said. Arroyo still worries however of its future implications, Marcos says. The depreciation of the Peso Value on the flip side may spur inflation. That can negatively impact the purchasing power of the common Filipino.




Marcos-Friendly Leadership

The electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against VP Leni Robredo may still be uncertain. But now not only the President is Marcos-friendly. The heads of the Congress and the Senate are now on the same boat.  The current line of succession to the office of the President of the Philippines is specified by the 1987 Constitution. During the Marcos era, the line of succession would be amended to include a newly created cabinet or ministerial offices. The line of presidential succession follows the order of Vice President, President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. In case of death, permanent disability, or inability of these officials, Congress shall, by law, provide for the manner of selection of the person who is to act as President until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
