Bongbong Marcos Endorses Palafox’s Flood Control Measures

Flood Control

By: Elena Grace Flores
Bongbong Marcos stresses that the cancellation of the 4th Spillway project in Metro Manila contributes heavily to the worsening flood control problems. This is part of the urban planning strategy of his late father, former President Ferdinand Marcos. The VP in waiting now endorses the same architect, Jun Palafox’s flood control measures who happens to be a part of the previous Marcos project that was cancelled due to the 1986 quo d’etat.

The Archipelago Status of the Philippines

Marcos, the Vice Presidential protestee said that it is a fact that the country is surrounded by water because of its archipelago status. The 7,100 islands of the Philippines is located in nearby vast oceans. It would be difficult to move away from waters. Nonetheless, he points out that efficient urban planning and proper flood control measures just like what his father did can ease the problems. He also cites two reasons that contributes to massive floods in Metro Manila.

Climate Change is Real

Marcos also debunks the idea that climate change is not real. In fact most farmers can’t figure out easily anymore when the appropriate planting season would be.  He cites deforestation and over population as the two major contributors for this. The polished logs ceased in Laguna is one proof. Whereas, it is quite obvious that would would relocate to the big city to be near their work or livelihood. Therefore, his mother’s QC project helps solve these kinds of dilemma.

Former President Ferdinand Marcos’ Urban Planning Strategy

The MMETROPLAN is an inter-agency project of the Government of the Philippines with Freeman Fox and Associates of London and Hong Kong. Including other recommendations for transport land use and urban development, the plan suggested the construction of flood control mechanisms to effectively contain and channel floodwaters, citing initiatives by other studies and proponents. In this plan, the Laguna Lake will act as the initial floodwater container and the Manila Bay a secondary container. When the Pasig and Marikina rivers reach critical levels, its excess water is diverted to Laguna Lake through the Manggahan floodway while the Paranaque spillway will flush out excess water from Laguna Lake towards Manila Bay to protect the 29 Laguna lakeshore towns.

Marcos’ Spillway 4 to Continue

The Paranaque Spillway to be simultaneously constructed, but only the Floodway was built. The Spillway project would have cost the government P18 billion (roughly $1 billion). Every time flood waters are diverted into the Laguna Lake via the Manggahan floodway, Laguna Lake becomes a toilet without a flush, which was what exactly happened during the onslaught of typhoon Ondoy, where 4,600 cubic meters per second of flood waters came down from the mountains and flooded more than 80,000 hectares of low-lying urban land in Metro Manila and around Laguna Lake. Singapore, in comparison, has only 71,000 hectares of land.

Palafox’s Flood Control Measures

Among the long-term targets suggested by Arch. Palafox that are related to water management infrastructure included:

1. Building the Spillway from Laguna Lake to Manila Bay.

2. Establish 100-year flood lines and rising water levels, then build higher than them

3. Control development in areas liable to flooding

4. Encourage new developments and retrofit elevated walkways, sky bridges that connect buildings above flood waters

5. Focus of solid waste management

6. Reforestation of the catch basins

7. Update Daniel Burnham’s 1905 Plan, 1976-77 MMETROPLAN, and the 2003 Manila Megalopolis Concept Plan 2020

8. Establish an Urban Metropolitan Management Review (too many overlapping functions among local, metropolitan, regional and national agencies)

9. Construct road dikes around Laguna Lake and relocate settlers to higher areas

10. Make hazard mapping (for earthquakes, floods, fire, and other hazards) a priority

11. Enforce 10-20 meter easements along rivers and lakes, and 3.5 meter easements along creeks and esteros.

There are five factors needed for the country wants to succeed : visionary leadership, political will, good planning, good design, and good governance.

Marcos Loyalists: Proclaim the Real VP, Bongbong Marcos


By: Elena Grace Flores
Just last week, Atty. Glenn Chong and other Marcos loyalists announce through social media the recent peaceful protest. They urge the Supreme court to proclaim the real Vice President, Bongbong Marcos. The SC already completes the manual recount of all the clustered precincts of BBM’s three (3) pilot provinces, namely Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. After more than 3 years of waiting, BBM still awaits for the PET’s notice on any new development in his protest.

[VIDEO]: Marcos loyalists protest to proclaim the real VP, Bongbong Marcos.

No News on the results of Completed Recount

5 March 2019 marks the termination of the manual recount in Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. BBM is patiently waiting for the PET’s notice regarding new developments in his protest. The loyalists, on the other hand, continue to show their presence at the Supreme Court. This is to stage a protest that many Filipinos are already fed up with the long wait.

The President’s Influence

Although it is known that the President has no jurisdiction over the Supreme Court, many loyalists still believe that he can influence the justices whom he has appointed. Particularly,  the new Chief Justice, Lucas Bersamin. He ranks higher than the pro-Robredo case assignee, Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa.

Atty. Glenn Chong’s Support to  BBM

Once again, Atty. Glenn Chong proves using his own voting system that an operator can manipulate Smartmatic automated election machines. He cites that in many precincts here and abroad, there are a substantial amount of people whose votes for him can’t be counted because his name was not in the receipts. He said that it is only possible if his name is excluded in the template. This is the reason why his supporters are one with Marcos.

Supreme Court Ways

To proclaim  BBM is a life-changing moment for the citizens of the Philippines.  This is the sign od the reversal of ultimate power from the previous EDSA victors to the heir of the late President Ferdinand Marcos that it topples. The magistrates have to examine all the legalities of his win because the opposition will not make it easier for them. They must cover all the possible loopholes to avoid any doubt that they are abusing their power under the current administration just like the previous one.

Proclaim the Real VP

The protesters rely on the Supreme Court to proclaim Bongbong Marcos as the real Vice President at the soonest possible time. Many believe that the country’s progress is faster with his capabilities. On top of that, he certainly has experience on how to unite the opposing public. Most of all, the namesake has all the rights and power to continue what the Marcos patriarch intends to do for the welfare of the people.

This is Why the Marcoses have More Money than their Government Salaries

By: Elena Grace Flores

Some Filipinos accuse the Marcoses of stealing money from the coffer of the government. Little do they know that the national treasury does not have as much money as the Marcoses have access to. The corruption allegations against the parents of Bongbong Marcos do not have the logic. PCGG only calculates the salaries of the late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos. They then compare the total amount to the valuables they got from the family illegally. Looking at the windmill video of Ilocos Norte, There’s no doubt that brilliant minds can generate as much wealth as needed.

YouTube video byBongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: We faced a lot of challenges in the Windmill Farm Project but in the end, it was well worth it.

Finding the Right Spot

Bangui Wind Farm is a wind farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The wind farm uses 20 units of 70-metre (230 ft) high Vestas V82 1.65 MW wind turbines. It is on a single row stretching along a nine-kilometer shoreline off Bangui Bay. The area faces the West Philippine Sea. This part has the strongest wind that made it suitable for the project.

Choosing the Effective Partners

An Israeli group initially made a proposal to install a windmill in Bangqui. This is to generate sustainable electricity source for the province. Since 2003 when it is still unknown, Marcos made a study for the said project. He taps his connections that start from his golf buddies in putting up the groundwork for the windmill. The financial forecast is a bit tough but money comes when the initiative is beneficial to the people.

Perseverance Pays Off on the 3rd Time

The initial structures of the windmill cannot weather the storm two times. Only on its 3rd installation that it was finally successful. If Marcos does not have the perseverance on this trial and error project, they would not exist at this time. In another matter, the outcome of his electoral protest against the presumptive VP is now quiet. However, instead of rants, one can only hear the inspiration message s from him.

Department of Energy Input

The national mining law was the basis of Marcos in putting up the project. The Department of energy cannot even indicate its requirements because it was also the first time for them. This is very true with many government agencies. It takes a brilliant leader like Marcos to make a difference.

Sourcing for Financing Money

Sourcing for financing supports is the toughest stage of Marcos’ windmill project. However, he was able to pull this through. Influence and connections really play a significant part in its success. Leaders who can generate funds or money for local projects like this are more likely to drive the country to progress at a national level. However, people with crab mentality can only accuse such government servants as thieves because they do not have the ability to understand the source of funds.

The Role of Simon Marcos During His Father’s Reign

Simon Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

Uncertainties on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest are not reason enough for the family to not do their purpose. The second son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake, Simon Marcos assures supporters that everything that they do is for their welfare. He can’t be grateful enough for their endless support all throughout these times. He said to his father that they are indeed lucky for many Filipinos are believing in them.

YouTube video byElena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: In Moments, Bongbong Marcos and second son, Simon express their gratitude to supporters. They stress the promise to return the favor through public service.

On the Back Seat

The second son of the VP hopeful always takes a back seat and greatly supports his older brother, Sandro Marcos’ endeavors. While doing so, he equips himself by taking gun training lessons in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida shooting that claims 17 lives. Taking a stand against gun control, he said. A photo shows that shows Simon being taught how to use an assault rifle with his band of bodyguards watching nearby graces social media. It’s empowering to know that you have the skills to protect yourself, he added.

Simon Marcos’ Foundation of Gratitude

Humility aside, Simon Marcos sees the importance of gratitude through his parents’ dealings with regards to the unfair accusations against his family. They are always thankful to their supporters. No below the belt attacks can be heard from their camps despite the massive fraud surrounding their patriarch’s defeat during the 2016 elections. He said that they won’t be where they are now if not because of the Marcos loyalists.

Political Future

Simon said that he’s glad that his parents let them be as they want. He may be reluctant to enter politics but he is game in all media exposures. In his early 20’s he already knew in his heart that they belong to politics right from the very start. He owes his humble character from his dad, he said.

Assurance to the People

As the middle child, Joseph Simon Araneta Marcos born on November 25, 1995, Simon has the best of both worlds. A peek into leadership and compassion from the heart. Politics is never his target at first. His steps follow his mother, Louise Marcos, a very successful corporate lawyer who wants to shy away from the political world. That even give Simon more credibility that when his father finally gets back his position, service to the people is the number one priority.

The Promise

The exact words of Simon; “Whatever we do is for the good of the people.” is reason enough for many Filipinos to join hands in fighting the election anomalies that are ongoing. By now, the majority already know who are the culprits for installing the wrong politicians into power. The generation of the Marcoses just gets better every time. They are truly the best choices for the common good.

Can the Supreme Court Ignore Atty. Glenn Chong’s Testimony on Marcos’ Missing Votes?

Supreme Court
By: Elena Grace Flores

One of the top candidates for Senator, Atty. Glenn Chong explains at the top of his lungs the obvious anomaly on the missing votes of Bongbong Marcos during the last election in 2016. The Comelec can only discredit him that he is lawyering for Marcos. However, only people who pretend to be deaf can’t understand the logic of his explanation. Will the Supreme Court ignore this? z

YouTube video byElena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: Who can Stop Atty. Glenn Chong in Locating Marcos’ Missing Votes?

Hot Senatoriable’s Advocacy

Hot senatoriable Atty. Glenn Chong discloses the whereabouts of Bongbong Marcos’ 241,712 voting shortage to win as VP. He said that the official votes from the Comelec server are short of around 241,000 votes. The result of municipal, district, regional and regional board of canvassers of 181 million for the 6 VP and 6 Presidential candidates must tally with that of the Comelec server. However, it so happens that the shortage of Bongbong Marcos to win as VP is more or less the same as the amount of the missing votes from the overall total.

Comelec is Not Listening

Instead of getting the data from Chong, Comelec ex-Chair Sixto Brilliantes tries to deny Chong’s claims. He has doubts of the figures that the young lawyer mentioned. Nevertheless, Chong blasts him saying that the poll body did not check the database. The team of Chong thoroughly made a careful examination and analysis of the available information. This is why the former Congressman of Biliran can immediately criticize them right at their faces.

Lawyering for Marcos?

The people can now understand why Chong’s detractors insist that he is Marcos’ lawyer. His knowledge about the massive 2016 election cheating is vital to the electoral protest of Marcos against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. In fact many experts speculate that the Supreme Court is quiet now because they need an unquestionable defense for their decision on the case which can only be favorable to the son of the late President, Ferdinand Marcos.

The People are Now Aware

It is evident online that the popularity of Chong surges high because of his passionate fight against election fraud. He accuses Comelec and Smartmatic of depriving the people on their choices during elections. This is why he runs for Senator. He said,that doing so is his last straw for his clean election advocacy. The people must be the ones to decide on his plight.

The Supreme Court is Under Close Watch

Despite the restlessness of Marcos’ supporters online, they can’t do anything but to wait for the Supreme Court to act on the electoral protest of Marcos. They are just waiting for the legislative branch to make a wrong move. For sure, the loyalists won’t take any unfair decisions sitting down. As Chong’s digital survey rate increases, the more Comelec fears for its possible demise.
