Former President and now Mayor Erap hosts a fun and festive evening to cap the lightning visit of Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim to Manila who expresses his views on democracy. This is a clear indication of the future big change towards the new Marcos golden era. Marcos’ legitimacy in the presidential line of succession is now slowly introduced to the foreign alliance. Simply, it’s not whom one knows but it’s whom they are affiliated with that counts in today’s world.

The Presidential Message

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim said that if he will have his own way, he would tell President Rodrigo Du30 to ensure vibrant democracy. Retain the respect for the rule of law, he said. This is if he should continue to reign in the country.




Malaysia’s Vice Premier’s Official Message

Deputy Prime Minister Ibrahim delivered his speech in Intramuros. Furthermore, the Pamantasang Lungsod ng Maynila bestowed him with the degree of law (honoris causa).



Reactions to the Country’s Current Events

Currently, there is an impending arrest of Senator Trillanes while Senator De Lima’s is still incarcerated. Du30’s critics seem to be punished. Consequently, when Anwar was asked about his views of these events in the Philippines, he responds, “My consistent view is that you cannot abuse power to victimize the opposition or dissidents. Specifically, I don’t know if the charge is due to what.”



Likely Next Leader

To quote Anwar, “If I am to meet President Du30, I would just say that I would support someone else’s measure; that I would certainly want to continue and ensure that vibrant democracy and respect for the rule of law in the Philippines. How? It’s for him and the Filipinos to decide.” Consequently, He is certain to be expressing his views if an abuse had been committed. Furthermore, The former Malaysian Deputy is also the most likely successor to Prime Minister Mahathir with the result of a party coalition agreement.




Democracy Beyond Friendship

Anwar is very much concerned about the Philippines. He has become friends with many Philippine leaders and civil society members. Furthermore, these friends have always been on his side supporting him while in jail. This all throughout his incarceration in his own country for many years. To quote him “In all those plights that I had when I was incarcerated, Filipino leaders and the civil society were there for me.”

Vice Presidential protestant against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo, Bongbong Marcos gives his actual updates on the case during the interview with Erwin Tulfo. Marcos said that the Supreme Court that sits as the PET must make a decision on what to do with those questionable ballots. He also has high hopes that the new Chief Justice Teresita De Castro can set directions on his protest during the short 5 weeks of her term before her retirement.

The Supreme Court to Decide on the Questionable Ballots

The Supreme Court is beginning a manual recount of the votes. However, Bongbong Marcos calls the PET’s attention to the questionable ballots. Some have been doused only recently, while several audit logs are missing.




Wet Ballots

Starting the recount from Bato Camarines Sur, there were already problems. 4 out of 42 voting precincts had the ballots wet. Consequently, the ballots are illegible. Furthermore, 38 precincts in Bato have the audit logs missing.



Robredo’s Demands

The camp of VP Robredo wants the PET to have the ballots where the ovals are shaded less than 50% but higher than 25% to be segregated. Robredo’s lawyers are also asking the PET to immediately resolve the April 18 resolution. They want the PET to reconsider the decision of a 50% threshold for vote validity.




Macalintal Dares Marcos on the Use of Ballot Images

Macalintal is now challenging Marcos. The picture images of the ballots should be used to determine the real results of the previous election. With the Comelec’s affirmation that the 25% threshold was used, Marcos’ claim that the threshold wasn’t used in the 2016 elections is now exposed as false, said the veteran lawyer. He also comments that Marcos is afraid to know the truth.



Atty. Rodriguez Blasts the Comelec’s Connivance with Robredo

Marcos’ lawyer, Vic Rodriguez is now calling the Comelec as a co-conspirator of VP Robredo, in response to Macalintal. Furthermore, Atty. Glenn Chong reveals the information that at least one SD card had been tampered with upon checking. Chong continues that with each card containing 500 votes, by switching machines, the 5000 extra SD cards could have been used to produce 2 million votes in favor of the victor during the 2016 VP race.

Senator Trillanes can be Right on SolGen Calida’s Hand to Pave the Way for Marcos

senator





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 revokes the grant of amnesty to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for failure to comply with its minimum requirements, Malacanang said. Consequently, The Department of Justice and the Armed Forces’ court-martial were instructed to “pursue all criminal and administrative cases” against Trillanes over military uprisings in 2003 and 2007, according to a copy of Du30’s proclamation, which was confirmed by Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra. The rebellious Senator is so sure that his demise is the work of SolGen Jose Calida who acts as the terminator for the administration’s foes. Calida has been instrumental for the removal of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. Then, he filed a manifestation backing the 50% ballot shading threshold that favors the interest of former Senator Bongbong Marcos on his electoral protest against the presumptive VP Leni Robredo.

[VIDEO]: Pinawalang-bisa ni Pangulong Duterte ang amnestiya kay noo’y Ltsg. at ngayo’y Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.



Senator Trillanes Failed to Comply

With Senator Trillanes’ failure to comply with the minimum requirements, the amnesty grant is declared void. Moreover, As stated in the proclamation, “The grant of amnesty to former LTSG Antonio Trillanes IV under Proclamation No. 75 is declared void ab initio because he did not comply with the minimum requirements to qualify under the Amnesty Program.”



Arresting the Rebel

Now, both the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police are tasked to apprehend Senator Trillanes. Trillanes has criminal and administrative charges in relation to the Oakwood Mutiny of 2003 as well as the Manila Peninsula incident of 2007.  Trillanes is to be recommitted back to the PNP Custodial Center with both the PNP and the AFP to employ all lawful means.



Pnoy’s Amnesty

It was Pnoy who granted amnesty to Trillanes by signing Proclamation No. 50 back in October 2010. Consequently, Trillanes led the Oakwood mutiny in 2003 and the Manila Peninsula siege in 2007 against Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s administration.



Blaming SolGen Calida

Consequently, Trillanes is questioning the legal effect of the EO and attributes it to SolGen Calida. Moreover, he had repeated conflicts with Calida. Furthermore, Aquino’s proclamation allegedly concurred with by the Congress. However, Guevarra says that for Proclamation No.572, the Congress concurrence is not needed because it was void ab initio.



Just a Matter of Time

Trillanes holds the timing as questionable. Consequently, the Senate is set to investigate on an issue that implicates SolGen Calida. Furthermore, he continues that President Du30’s timing in Israel that coincides with the Palace order is very suspicious. He suspects that the President pretends to have no knowledge about his fate. Trillanes presumes that his arrest is the work of Calida to the President’s delight. Perhaps, just in time for the upcoming Marcos takeover.

Moving Forward with Bongbong Marcos to the Nation’s Progress for the Mid-term Election

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

The Marcos loyalists movement in Dapitan like any chapters nationwide aims to help local officials for the progress of the nation. All these initiatives are moving forward together with Inday’s Sara’s Hugpong political party, This is vital for the mid-term election in 2019 for a better and safer Philippines with more opportunities for an improved lifestyle, said Bongbong Marcos. Meanwhile, the PET denies Marcos’ motion asking for Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. It justifies by saying that being a Pnoy appointee does not make him bias. This is actually fair enough for as long as any future rulings in favor of Marcos won’t be blamed to the new SC Chief Justice Teresita de Castro.

[VIDEO]: It’s always humbling to meet the people who were there for us during our toughest battles. It’s even more humbling to learn that they’re still there for us. Thank you for this humbling surprise, Marcos Loyalist Movement — Dapitan chapter!




Growing Family

Bongbong Marcos was filled with joy when he was invited to an induction ceremony of the Marcos Loyalist Movement. Moreover, it is the first batch of officers who are being inducted. To quote Marcos, “I was honored to join the Marcos Loyalist Movement during the induction of their inaugural batch of officers in Dapitan City, Zamboanga Del Norte,”. He also adds, “Knowing there’s a family I can count on inspires me to continue my fight for truth and genuine public service. Thank you very much for the trust!”.




Du30 – Marcos Alliance for the Mid-term Election

For the 2019 Mid-term elections, Sara Duterte is endorsing Sen, Cynthia Villar, Gov. Imee Marcos and Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu. They are among those who are also endorsed by her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago. Imee Marcos believes that the Hugpong ng Pagbabago will be the voice of Mindanao. On Monday, she had formally formed an alliance with the HnP. She compares the HnP to the Solid North, the regional alliance of the Marcos Family. Like the Solid North, HnP’s approach is very local, unlike that of a traditional party.

 


The PET’s Neutrality

In a 14-page resolution dated Aug. 28, the SC, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), denied Marcos’ motion asking for Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. “The foregoing shows that Justice Caguioa’s conduct of the matters in this protest has been nothing but impartial. Further, it bears reiterating that all decisions of the Tribunal have been arrived at through majority vote of all the members of the Court sitting en banc. As provided under Rule 66 of the 2010 PET Rule,” the PET said.




En Banc Process of the Election Tribunal

Marcos earlier accused Caguioa of “evident bias and manifest partiality” in favor of Robredo. In his extremely urgent motion to inhibit, Marcos accused Caguioa of bias towards the “yellow brigade” as he took note that the magistrate has close ties with former President Benigno Aquino III.  The PET, however, rejected the motion and sternly warned” Marcos and his lawyers that “any unfounded and inappropriate accusation made in the future will be dealt with more severely.” It said that Caguioa “has been nothing but impartial” in his conduct of matters involved in Marcos’ protest against Robredo, and explained that all decisions have been reached through a majority vote of the Court en banc.




Constitutional Transition towards the New Golden Age

The current action of the PET is part of the constitutional process. This is necessary to assure the public that the decisions they make are from the en banc. Not just from a single magistrate. Since the alliance between President Du30 and Bongbong Marcos is already proven to be formidable, the Filipinos are certain that a favorable ruling on Marcos’ protest against Robredo can happen soon. It only takes time because of the constitutional processes necessary. With the emerging alliance between Imee Marcos and Sara Du30-Carpio for the upcoming election, there’s no stopping to moving forward towards the new golden age phenomenon. This growing alliance is the cause of optimism to some, and bouts of sleepless nights to others.

Shallow-Minded Media Feasted on PDu30’s Davao Rape Joke Again

rape





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 is making another joke. The mainstream media never failed to report this right on the spot. Commentaries loom. Du30 humorously said that the reason why the incidence rate of rape in Davao City is high is that there are plenty of pretty girls in Davao. Because of that, the President is under fire again. Malacañang, however, defends the president and says that we shouldn’t take seriously the jokes of the president. This shows how shallow some news sources are. Instead of covering Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo, which is a public interest, they are more into petty things.






Youtube video by GMA News

[VIDEO]: Pahayag ni Pres. Duterte na maraming maganda sa Davao City kaya maraming nare-rape doon, binabatikos




The President’s Visayan Humor on Rape

The president is saying that as long as there are plenty of beautiful women, rape cases will always be high. He said so in Bisaya in Mandaue City on August 30.




Statistics of Rape Cases in Davao

With the data from the Philippine National Police, Davao ranks highest in the number of rape cases. There have been 42 cases in the 2nd quarter of 2018. With the PNP data on index crimes from 2010 to 2015 Davao City also ranks 2nd in the number of rape cases with 843 counts.

Many Media is Still a Stranger to the President’s Joke

Du30 can’t help but keep on making misogynistic remarks and making light of rape. For that, he faces heavy criticism. Back when he was mayor of Davao City he even joked about raping an Australian missionary as she was very beautiful. She was killed in a prison riot. This joke of his has caused an uproar. The media should know by now the nature of the President’s humor.









Can’t Change the Leader’s Manner

Malacañang, however, sees no problem with the President’s behavior. They say that it is just a part of his manner of speech and Most Filipinos understand his humor, especially the masses. This is actually one of the reasons why he is so popular. The majority of the Filipinos can relate to him.




The Presidential Daughter’s Point of View

As Mayor Sara Du30-Carpio explains,  the incidence of rape has decreased by 20.83%. There were 120 cases during the first half of 2017 and on the first half of 2018 it went down to 95. She is claiming that this is due to the government programs about teaching children on the topic of sexual abuse. And to all the antagonists of Davao City government, she is asking what have they done to help.
