Attorney Glenn Chong’s Way Out Can be the Way In Towards a Senate Seat

Attorney
By: Elena Grace Flores

Attorney Glenn Chong answers the Chiefs directly when asked why he has to run for a Senate post when the competition is already very tough. He can actually do much better in the House of Representatives, they said. However, Chong discloses that he is already very tired of convincing people about his clean election advocacy. If he loses, then it would be a way out for him. Otherwise, he can gain more influence if the people support him. z

[VIDEO]: Chong: It doesn’t matter if I lose

Sincerity Counts in Winning

Former Biliran Rep. Glenn Chong says that he will run during the midterm elections and it doesn’t matter if he loses. He also reveals how the people saw his sincerity through the letters he gave out in the 2007 elections. Chong has shown in many appearances that he is willing to give up his life for his good intention for the country.

Social Media Supresses the Fighting Attorney

It is very obvious through Facebook that anything related to the quest of the fighting attorney faces many restrictions at Facebook and other social media outlets. The accounts of his supporters who are mainly pro-Marcos and Du30 voters are limited to the very minimal number of postings. However, some campaigns to discredit him are still visible online. This can also be a part of the social media’s anti-spam drive.

Bongbong Marcos’ Silence

It is observed that Bongbong Marcos never said a word about Attorney Chong’s plight. He earlier confirmed that the election lawyer is not part of his legal team as per the plea of Chong himself. Chong’s revelations about the 2016 poll fraud coincides with the electoral protest of Marcos against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo

Senate Bid Falls Into Place

As Chong tries to finalize his candidacy, his infrastructure in the Congress did not materialize. Contrary to that, all of his Senate push preparation push through. This is the reason why he thinks that it’s the will of God for him to run for Senator, win or lose. Winning is not his goal but to go further than the crossroad he’s facing.

Way Out or Way In

For Attorney Chong, it’s only the people who can decide for him to take an exit from his fight with the Comelec and Smartmatic or move forward. Should he win, he can have an edge as a legislator to ensure the country’s honest election. He vows to make sure that all votes will be counted properly. There should be no agency that manipulates the will of the people as to who would lead the country.

Sandro Marcos, the eldest son of Bongbong Marcos seems like not worrying at all about the result of his father’s electoral protest. In fact, he wishes that his dad’s fashion sense would be dated. However, the latter insists that his wardrobe choice is classic. The son’s New Year resolution for their patriarch coincides with their reaction to the delay on the case against Vice President Leni Robredo. Here’s why. z

[VIDEO]: BBM VLOG #43: New year . . . new look?! | Bongbong Marcos

BBM Sticks on Familiar Grounds

If there’s one thing this makeover has taught me, it’s that sometimes we’re better off sticking to what we know!, Bongbong Marcos said. A” for effort though to Sandro, Simon and Borgy!, he added. However, despite the sound suggestions of a credible fashion consultant, his choices remain. Just like in the protest versus Robredo. Marcos refused to ruin his New Year with negativity. He stays confident that his time to lead the country would come.

Sandro’s New Year Resolution for his Dad

Sandro describes his desire for his father’s wardrobe for 2019 as dated. He said that BBM obviously looks like an Ilocano who never spends for his clothes. Ilocanos are noted to be stingy. His father retaliates by saying that his son is right. He is spending more for Sandro’s wardrobe that he describes as English.

Borgy Manotoc’s Expertise

Borgy Manotoc, son of BBM’s sister, Imee is a famous fashion model and entrepreneur. He acts as Marcos’ fashion consultant. He suggests different kinds of attire for him to try on. Then he and Sandro rate the selected outfit each while the VP Protestee models them.

Learning from the Millennials

Marcos adheres to his son’s wish by complying to the wardrobe try out with Manotoc. He is open to change and quite patient about it. Despite his family’s bad experiences, he is seldom seen furious about something. Positivity aligns him to his goal. This is something that social media users must do. Expressing ill feelings about the electoral protest can only do more harm than good because it triggers disunity.

Experience Counts in the Electoral Protest

There’s only one reason why BBM is so patient about the electoral protest contrary to the negative reactions of his loyalists. He knows that his time will come to lead the country. Despite the rumors about the President’s shortcomings, he trusts that he is doing all he can to allow fairness in the upcoming Supreme Court ruling.

Supreme Court CJ Succession is Like BBM Family’s What’s in the Box Game

supreme court
By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 in August said he follows the “seniority” tradition at the high court when he appointed Associate Justice Teresita de Castro as the top magistrate. This was after the ouster of Maria Lourdes Sereno, an appointee of his predecessor from the opposition. As of November 28, 2018, the Supreme Court Chief Justice position is currently held by Lucas Bersamin. He assumes the post after the mandatory retirement of the shortest CJ, Teresita Leonardo-De Castro in October 2018 after her appointment two months earlier. The Filipino leader might shock the public with his appointees but like BBM’s Family What’s in the Box Game, they are all in line with his intention to revive the golden age era following the unpopularized Marcos blueprint. Should this continue, Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta can be next. z

Move Forward with Marcos

It is on record that Peralta said that the country should move forward as he stood firm on the decision of the Supreme Court (SC). This was in allowing the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery. Despite protests from victims of human rights violations during his term, Peralta made the remark in response to the question of the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) during the public interview for Chief Justice aspirants on whether the decision has really put closure between the grieving family of Marcos and those injured during the martial law years.

Five Choices for Supreme Court CJ

Five names were included on the shortlist of chief justice aspirants drawn up by the Judicial and Bar Council. Bersamin was a regional trial court judge in 1986 and was appointed as an SC justice in April 2009. Among the list, Bersamin is the third most senior justice in terms of experience at the high court. Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, meanwhile, is the most senior justice in the SC where he is serving since 2001. Following him is Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta who was appointed to the SC in January 2009.

Good Friends

Peralta, meanwhile, said de Castro and his friend, Associate Justice Lucas Bersamin, are both of them are capable and competent to lead the Supreme Court. Peralta, a former Sandiganbayan presiding justice, was named to the High Court by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Jan. 13, 2009. He served as Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 95 judge from 1994 to 2002. He will retire in March 2022 while Bersamin retires on October 2019.

BBM Family’s What’s in the Box Game

Now that the boys are home for the New Year holidays unlike the Christmas week, they take the time off to do some fun things at home. They take turns in guessing what’s in the box. Oftentimes, they are suspicious, scared, and shocked only to find a friendly item or creature. The same feelings when finding out the controversial Supreme Court CJ appointees of the President. For sure, they indeed have one common denominator.

Securing the Magistrate Post

If President Du30 is true to his words that he wants Bongbong Marcos to take his place, he would make sure to secure the Supreme Court Chief Justice post to be fair to him. Marcos’ VP electoral protest might take a long time. But in the end, the ruling can be influenced by the high court’s leadership.

Bongbong Marcos’ Remarks on Filipino Women and Children this Christmas

Christmas
By: Elena Grace Flores

It is not surprising that this Christmas, Bongbong Marcos prioritizes their medical missions, particularly in Ermita and Tondo. His mother is a champion in providing health facilities for Filipinos during his father’s regime. As these happen, Miss Philippines, Catriona Gray becomes Miss Universe. Marcos justifies this by saying that Filipino women are indeed the most beautiful, intelligent, and the best character-wise in the universe. He, however, urges public servants to pay a lot more attention to the plight of the unfortunate children. z

YouTube video byBongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]:Bongbong Marcos: We can do better.

Children Deserve Better

Marcos explains: I spent an early Christmas with children in Manila this week. Amidst all the fun, I couldn’t help but realize that there’s still so much more we can do to improve the lives of these less fortunate children. Next year, let’s work on giving them more than just a party. He said this after realizing that most of these children do not have a house that they can call their home. No one takes care of them and gives them Christmas gifts.

Catriona Gray’s Silver Lining Advocacy

Gray visits the Young Focus Foundation Child Care Center in Balut, Tondo. and holds a feeding program for the children. It is a non-government organization that operates since 2008, starting with the children in Smokey Mountain. Believing that education is the most powerful tool to overcome poverty, the foundation had set up several pre-schools in Tondo. The beauty queen even joins in the classes. Her favorite is story time where she sits in with the children. She also works to help renovate the pre-school so that it could take in more children from the surrounding communities.

Christmas Learning

Gray refers to the kids in this Foundation in Tondo when she was asked of the most important lesson she has learned in life during the recent Miss Universe pageant. “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manila and the life there is poor and it’s very sad. And I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it; to look for beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful,” she answered. “And I will bring this aspect as a Miss Universe, to see situations with a silver lining. And to assess where I could give something, where I could provide something like a spokesperson. And if I can teach people to be grateful, we can have an amazing world where negativity cannot grow and prosper, and children will have smiles on their faces.”

Smile on the Children’s Faces

Like Gray, Marcos also believes in gift giving. It is essential to make them feel the spirit of Christmas through these gifts given during a Christmas Party. The smile of the children and the warmth they felt during these occasions after a little act of kindness is indeed the real joy.

He can do More

Marcos vows to do more than just the projects he has been doing already to make this sector of society happier next year. He made no mention of the VP electoral protest that gets really quiet during the holidays. He can only insinuate that when he is in the position, he can do more to alleviate poverty. Perhaps a government effort that can directly give a decent life to the indigents. Just like his mother’s housing projects.
