Gov. Imee Marcos: Edsa Drama Foretells the Family’s Pain but Brings Mindfulness to the People

Imee Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos in her interview with Mocha Uson discloses how she feels about the 31st Edsa People’s Power Revolution. Since it is a painful event for their family, she finds comfort in looking at the positive changes it brings. Sad to say it is still work in progress but the mindfulness of the Filipinos on the country’s development is enhanced. The millennials need not be told about history. They search for the truth and discuss things over Facebook. So, they have real-time information. Unlike during the Edsa revolt, many people are clueless why they are there as explained by Maharlika – and not even one Aquino is in the event.

Marcos Stigma

Imee Marcos said that she and brother, Bongbong Marcos are even shocked with the intensity of the Marcos stigma. They are young when their father becomes president. Yet, they are often asked to explain the accusation against their father. She is, however, convinced that their patriarch has done more good than bad – or else, she won’t win as governor.




Entitled to Own Opinion but not Own Facts

Gov. Marcos admits that her father’s reign is not perfect but if this is compared to the yellow regime, the country during the Marcos era is more productive. President Digong’s disclosure on his flexibility to resort to martial law when there’s a need for it made the Governor realize that since many people are outlaws, the country needs utmost discipline. People should search for the truth first before making false accusations. There’s no such thing as own facts, just opinions.




Infrastructure and Agriculture

It is a pride of the Marcos golden age that infrastructure and agriculture yields are abundant. People are not hungry. Jobs are not scarce because public services are the priority of the Marcos government. This is the opposite during the Aquino stints – where the poor becomes poorer and the rich becomes richer – just like before martial law.

Marcos Rule Mishaps

The good governor also admits that there are mishaps during the Marcos regime. Abuses do exist in the military but not as extensive as publicized. There are laws that are not implemented in localities due to lack of political will by some local leaders. The Marcos siblings try to correct these mistakes in their own capacities – and that’s when they know they are loved by many people.

Even the Earthquake Attests that Sabah Belongs to the Philippines

Sabah





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The 7.3-magnitude quake that measures at a depth of 380 miles or 617 km hits the center of the Celebes Sea. It is between the Philippines and Indonesia. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre (PTWC) states that there is no tsunami threat because the earthquake is located too deep inside the earth. However, Metro Manila announces that a magnitude-6.7 earthquake manifests in Surigao City. It is also experienced in Sabah.

[VIDEO]: KOTA KINABALU: Tremors were felt in the city center here and in Sandakan. That prompts city dwellers to rush out of buildings in panic.



The Quake is Experienced in Sabah

People run out of high buildings after tremors are felt in eastern Sabah. It happens after a magnitude 7.3 earthquake strikes the Celebes Sea, off the Philippines. It hit about 466km east of Semporna. Many people account that they are shaking. The tremors are also felt in various parts of the east coast. That include Sandakan and Tawau – as well as in Sabah’s state capital, Kota-Kinabalu.




Learning from Surigao Quake

PHIVOLCS Director Renato Solidum explains that the first lesson Metro Manila learns from the quake is how non-engineered buildings pose a greater danger to human life than the quake itself. During earthquakes, skyscrapers are often thought of as the biggest hazards. However, the damages on small to medium-sized buildings, outnumber large buildings in most disasters, just like in Surigao.




Casualty Estimates

Solidum estimates that 31,000 people along the West Valley Fault in Metro Manila are affected. This is when a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit there alone. It is actually higher according to JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) study. Their count is 34,000. Around 21,000 people can die as a result. This does not include nearby provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, and Laguna. Those places also lie on the West Valley Fault.

Geographically Related

Sabah and the Philippines are not only related in historical and geographical terms. Even their fault lines are connected. This somehow indicates that Sabah’s mother country is naturally the Philippines and not Malaysia as claimed by the Filipinos. The Malaysians cannot accept this fact despite their yearly lease payment. Nevertheless, this is nature’s way of keeping the Sabah issue warm for the next DILG Secretary, Bongbong Marcos.

Comelec’s Negligence on Hacking can be Related to Marcos Election Results

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Days prior to the 2016 elections, the Comelec website is hacked that leaks the voters’ database. It’s head, Andres Bautista reacts on the NPC’s recommendation to file a case against him. Why punish the ones hacked? Guidelines must be in place to avoid the same incident. Currently, the Supreme Court, that acts as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal deems that the complaint of Bongbong Marcos presents enough merit for its review.

Unauthorized Servers

Marlon Garcia, head of the Technical Support Team of Venezuela’s Smartmatic, admits that aside from the three servers sanctioned by the Comelec in the transmission of votes under the Automated Election System (AES), there also existed a “meet me room” where several servers are housed. This supports Marcos’ quest for truth because Smartmatic finally attests the existence of several other servers aside from the three authorized servers.




Possible Manipulation can Occur

Smartmatic lawyer George Aquino denies that there are major changes at the height of the transmission of votes on May 9. This is when Leni Robredo overtakes the almost a million margin of Marcos. Can it be that the stolen voters’ database finds their way to the secret server?




Publicize Bongbong Marcos’ Voters

One way to find out that the votes are not manipulated to put Leni Robredo on the lead is to publicize Bongbong Marcos’ list of voters. These Marcos loyalists can then check if their votes are counted or not.

Influx of Affidavits

The massive affidavits saying that their votes for Bongbong Marcos are not counted are part of the concrete evidence that Marcos submits to the Tribunal. This is one of the main reasons why PET’s initial ruling favors Bongbong Marcos.

Simple EDSA Anniversary is Binay, Honasan, Marcos and the President’s Way of Moving On

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Binay, Honasan, Marcos and the President’s alliance or Bihomadu shows its force for the very first time when Pastor Boy Saycon accompanied the witnesses of the fraudulent activity of the Liberal Party that benefits Vice President Leni Robredo at the senate. Their emergence is one substantial proof of Marcos’ electoral protest. On the EDSA celebration plan, it seems that Bihomadu again shows its existence.





Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net
[VIDEO]: Time to move on from merely celebrating the past. This was how Malacañang responded on Thursday to questions about why the Duterte administration chose “a simple and quiet” commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the Edsa People Power Revolution on February 25.



Simple and Quiet EDSA Celebration

The first EDSA People Power Revolution anniversary under the new administration is “simple and quiet.” It focuses on “moving the nation forward” rather than celebrate the past, Malacañang said. “It’s simple and very quiet… a reflection on nation-building,” the Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella discloses recently.




Future Goals

Abella explains that the public can expect a “shift” in the administration’s focus in this year’s EDSA celebration on February 25. Contrary to the previous shining event, this year, the anniversary looks towards the country’s future. “The emphasis is shifted. It is not anymore a celebration of the past; it now reflects on what the future holds… We are moving on from the past,” he said.




A Day of Reflection

This year’s 31st EDSA anniversary theme is “A Day of Reflection: Celebrating People Power for Nation Building to be exact.” Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea takes the lead in planning the event. He is the new head of the EDSA People Power Commission.

Time to Move On and not about Marcos

“It’s time to move on from just celebrating the past, remembering the past, and to move on into the whole aspect of nation-building. We should give it a more positive outlook and to.. give a more positive understanding.” “The whole nation evolves. We can’t get stuck in the past,” Abella added. Marcos is never mentioned in the explanation. However, Bihomadu announces the same way of moving on from the EDSA incident.

Binay

Jejomar Binay on True Democracy

Vice President Jejomar Binay issues a statement as the nation marks the 28th anniversary of the EDSA Revolution. “True democracy cannot thrive in a society whose population lives in poverty,” he said. It is the duty of the government and citizens alike to let the effects of the economic gains of the country benefit all, he added. He is a member of the MABINI group of human-rights lawyers who defend critics of the martial law regime – but an avid supporter of Bongbong Marcos.

 




Half the Battle

Binay expresses his thoughts that the peaceful revolution’s success is only half-way. The other half is for the people to protect the democracy the nation by not letting memory fade. Not through lavish celebrations but to be It demands vigilant against any violation of human rights that makes poverty worse.




Memorial Museum

Binay agrees on the establishment of a memory museum to document the struggles against martial law. This is to help in educating the youth and to make them aware of the fight for democracy during that period.

Nancy Binay’s Take

Senator Nancy Binay also said that people power is not finished yet since most Filipinos have no food on the table. Poverty continues to increase and inequality still persists. She believes that it is still work in progress. Binay said the EDSA People Power Revolution should inspire people to attain real democracy that stops hunger worldwide.
