[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos Jr. recently expressed his gratitude to his “online warriors” for their
relentless support during a Christmas gathering.
Trolls Exist for Every Political Candidate
Facebook accounts without their own image, name, and unverifiable origin are called “trolls.” There may be some under the BBM Groups – but they still have the most number of readers who interact in whatever discussions about Bongbong Marcos.
Great Online Force
Inday Espina-Varona’s Facebook account who’s a notable anti-Marcos journalist was previously banned because of numerous reports from verifiable accounts. This is a proof that the united pro-Marcos are gaining force in the online world.
Facebook’s Marcos individuals are increasing in number. Most admins have to approve at least 10 to 100 joiners on a daily basis. Unlike other groups, the members are really passionate sharing quality materials pertaining about the truth during the Marcos era.
The slim margin between V.P. Leni Robredo and Bongbong Marcos despite the Liberal Party’s bet alleged massive cheating only shows that the majority of Filipinos are already aware of the irregularities done by the yellow faction since the time of Ninoy Aquino. The people vowed to make those liars pay this time.

It only takes common sense and lots of concern to the Filipino people to be a good statesman. Bongbong Marcos exhibited these traits when he scrutinized what went wrong in the balikbayan box case during the Aquino administration. The improvement continued to this date even if he’s not a senator anymore. His greatest ally, president Rodrigo Duterte imposed the tax-free balikbayan box to up to 150,000 pesos worth of gift items but not for commercial use.
In many middle east countries, the punishment of drug smugglers is the death penalty. No family-loving Filipino would risk their job and their family for doing such crime. Hence, statistics say that not even one balikbayan box ever found to contain illegal drugs or guns. This is a huge failure on the part of the previous administration. Worst, they are giving balikbayans a bad name that they can be smugglers.
Bongbong Marcos urged the Government to give OFWs an Apology
Bongbong Marcos explained that no one would want to hire a smuggling Filipino overseas. There must be a massive campaign to apologize to the overseas workers through mass media – the same was as when the balikbayan box problem escalates. However, it was only Customs Commissioner Lina who apologized publicly before his transfer.
Duterte’s OFW Campaign for Christmas
Under the current administration, president Rodrigo Duterte announces before Christmas that there will be no taxes imposed to balikbayan boxes for as much as 150,000 pesos of goods for their family back home. The boxes are also not subject to physical examination anymore. Tampered boxes when received must be reported to the bureau through its hotline at (02) 7056052 or 7056067 or through its website: customs.gov.ph.
CNN reported that a balikbayan lost 20,000 pesos worth of perfumes after her balikbayan box got tampered. The media got the story first hand but the owner refrains from reporting the incident so as not to ruin her holiday. Anyhow, reporting such incidents is as easy as dialing the number given on the phone or logging into the bureau’s website. The government can help people better if one would report to the right channel instead of giving interviews to the media.

It’s all about the money for the Liberal Party – but the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos is smarter than that. He outsmarted the leaders that took over his position for three consecutive terms. Now that he is laid to rest in the Libingan ng mga Bayani together with his war comrades, he can rest in peace. Now, the public knows that he did not steal anything. Instead, he made sure that the wealth for humanity remain for the benefit of the Filipinos through the World Bank.

[VIDEO]: Resigned National Historical Commission of the Philippines chairperson Maria Serena Diokno said the next step beyond the rallies is to continue educating the youth about Martial Law. Other historians and educators agree with her proposal. Historian Xiao Chua said an interesting way to teach this part of history is to let the victims speak in class.
Truthful Martial Law History
If it’s the truth that the Liberal Party is after, history books should contain the following”
Martial Law saved the country from chaos.
It prevented the country from becoming a communist nation.
The Liberal Party members were the culprits.
Ninoy Aquino started the media propaganda against Marcos
Marcos did not steal anything but provided quality public services and infrastructures to the Filipinos and more.
Return the money, Jim Paredes?
You can really sense that Jim Paredes is only after the money. He can be evaluated in his manner of speaking against the Marcoses. It is obvious that he does not have the wisdom like Enrile who is more credible in speaking about the Martial Law regime.
Diokno is not into Educating Millenials
In the real sense of the world, resigned National Historical Commission of the Philippines chairperson Maria Serena Diokno is not for the true history. He is only after the promotion of her own interests and not for the good of the nation. Worst, she vowed to poison young minds.
The growing number of Bongbong Marcos’ followers is the proof that the people in the Philippines are already aware of the Liberal Party lies. The good thing is, they are doing something about it. Not letting this poisonous yellow race to dominate the country again.

Andres Bautista who used to be PCGG chief and now Comelec chairman thinks that the public is easy to forgive. He admits that they do not have their support against the Marcoses – both in the alleged ill-gotten wealth that turns out to be the wealth for humanity and in the Comelec for the election fraud connivance theory.

[VIDEO]: The late President Marcos already have lots of gold before he became president.
Robert Sison, Mrs Marcos’ lawyer, believes that the Marcos wealth was “confiscated” rather than recovered by the commission. He insists that there is no legal basis to take any of the assets. “The Philippine government has no right to question why Mrs Marcos had this art,” Mr Sison said. “Ferdinand Marcos was a gold trader before he became president, and he made his money then.” Mr Sison also pointed out that, despite numerous cases being filed against the family, no-one has been successfully prosecuted.
Some Assets are Gone?
The Commission on Good Government has has sold real estate in New York and millions of dollars-worth of shares, and obtained $600 m in Swiss bank accounts. It has also found a ruby and diamond tiara, locked in the vault of the Swiss central bank, which could fetch more than $8 m. But Andres Bautista, the head of the PCGG then admits there is still a lot missing – especially the paintings. He is speculating that the Marcoses still have the rest which is just rightful. They own them anyway. Bautista should give full accounts as to where are all the confiscated items now.
Filipinos Don’t Respect the PCGG
Bautista is aware that the commission is not well respected by the people because of corruption. He is not sure anymore if they can still get the support of the public. So far, no case yet has reached the court and he blamed the Philippine judicial system for that – not the lack of evidence that made them not stand in court.
The commission also slowed down because the Marcoses are gaining political force once again. Imelda is a congresswoman; her daughter Imee is a provincial governor; her son BongBong is groomed to be president. The fact that the Marcoses are back in power “really doesn’t help us,” Bautista conceded.

The martial law testimonies just depend on who’s talking and who has the greater number. The Bantayog ng mga Bayani gives honor to the 19 figures called “the real heroes” who fought against the martial law during the late Ferdinand E. Marcos’ regime. Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, on the other hand, attested that it was necessary for Marcos to declare it because the country was in chaos. In fact, he is certain that Marcos is rightful in all aspects of it because he himself studied its details and the former president just complied with his recommendations.

[VIDEO]: 19 heroes honored at Bantayog ng mga Bayani. www.cnn.ph
There were 19 patriots added to the wall of remembrance at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani. They are honored by the Bantayog nga mga Bayani Foundation. Liberal supporters refer to them as the “real heroes” for their alleged valiant fight against the late President Ferdinand Marcos’s administration in their respective fields. Many are politicians, journalists, and student activists.
Vice President Leni Robredo’s Participation
Vice President Leni Robredo joins former senator Wigberto Tanada in the flower offering for their acclaimed ‘heroes’ at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani’s wall of remembrance. Knowing that she is the highest elected officer of the Liberal Party, it can be speculated that she might be a great force in initiating it.
Abuses during Martial Law really Happened but why Blame Marcos?
Marcos’s intention in declaring martial law is to save the majority of Filipinos from insurgencies. No one can be trusted at that point as per Enrile. It was never the intention to put the activists’ sufferings from the hands of abusive law enforcers at that time into oblivion. It is just ironic that instead of questioning their direct head which is ex-President Fidel Ramos when he was the Philippine Constabulary Chief, the target Marcos directly even if he’s already dead. It is just obvious that the move is an effort to discredit the younger Marcos – to destroy his chances of becoming president in the near future.
Marcos’ Burial Used Over and Over Again
The fact must not be forgotten by the millennials that two terms of the Aquino administration provided free lawyers to the alleged human rights victims but no substantial number of cases resulted from that. It is easy to conclude that isolated cases are being escalated to make a bigger impact on the alleged martial law abuses. Another thing, the Marcos burial follows all the laws and it cannot be disputed by such different opinions only.
