Siblings Day Humor: Bongbong Marcos Picks on Sister Imee as the China Trouble Remarks Loom

China
By: Elena Grace Flores

Gov. Imee Marcos is controversial again. Despite her claim that the Philippines’ suing China sparks the dispute between the two countries, she stresses that it is important that the Philippines asserts its sovereignty while still maintaining good relations with the East Asian giant. Some Filipinos did not quite understand this. Especially those who are more into traditional reasoning than thinking outside of the box for mutual benefits. Her brother, Bongbong Marcos who believes in her can only pick on her wittiness that others cannot endure.

International Siblings Day Humor

Once again, the namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos can only speak highly of Imee Marcos. However, on his Siblings Day vlog, he tricks her into saying that he dedicates the video to her industrious, clever, and beautiful sister, Irene. He refers to the youngest sister, Irene Araneta who is totally out of politics. Then, as he laughs his head off, mention the name of the eldest sister, Imee who runs for Senator this midterm election as candidate No. 46.

Consistent Views on China

Gov. Marcos’ remarks are actually consistent with Philippine President Rodrigo Du30’s idealism. He, in fact, blames his predecessor, Benigno Aquino III, and the United States. This is for failing to stop China’s reclamation and militarization in the disputed West Philippine Sea. Reacting to reports on China’s missiles to Philippine reefs, Du30 said the US should have acted on intelligence reports when Beijing began its buildup in the area seven years ago. The burden of stopping China, which he said was in violation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea or UNCLOS, was therefore on the US. Not the Philippine Navy. The President also pins the blame on Aquino. The Aquino administration brought the dispute to the United Nations-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration in 2013 which causes the fury of the Chinese government.

China is Not an Invader

The governor said that she trusts China as it never invades the Philippines unlike Japan or the US. This is contrary to the misleading surveys by the yellow media. Mock surveys always conclude that most Filipinos prefer close ties with the Americans than with the Chinese people. Despite the fact that the Filipino-Chinese community’s powerful existence in the country. As per records, most wealthy business tycoons are originally from China. Mix marriages and President Marcos’ naturalization law allow them to become Filipinos.

Anti-China Media Propaganda

The military recently confirms that nearly 400 Chinese vessels swarm near the Philippine’s Pag-asa Island in the first quarter of the year. The administration “fires off a salvo” of diplomatic notes and has repeatedly said that China should leave the area. Du30 never tolerates the Chinese force’s trespassing but the opposition capitalizes on his friendship with China to paint doubts into the public’s mind on his ability to protect the country from foreign invasion.

Diplomatic Ties through Economic Partnerships with China

Diplomatic relations between the Philippines and communist China were first established under the rule of Marcos’ father, former President Ferdinand Marcos. The late President had it on his vision that economic partnerships with China can propel the nation’s progress economic-wise. Nevertheless, the yellow stalwarts are really active in opposing this because the oligarchs that they are supporting would be on the losing end when Philippine-China bilateral ties are strengthened.

Bongbong Marcos and Son’s Undas Tips Neutralize Election Chaos

election


By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos and his son came up with a few tips on how to make the long Undas weekend fun for the family. Gatherings can be interesting without alcohol and gambling at cemeteries. Wholesome activities bring harmony and peace to the memories of the deceased loved ones. Despite the 2016 election chaos, the Marcoses knew for sure that everything will come to pass. This is because no amount of criticism can undo the people’s memory of a public servant’s good performance like that of the Marcos patriarch. He urges his detractors that instead of finding fault in others using the dead, they should do their job well and let their track record speak for themselves.

Election Support for the Future Senator

This week, the Marcos family came out in full support for Gov. Imee Marcos, as she filed her candidacy for Senator. This simply shows a solid family that can build a strong nation. The former Senator has no doubts that given his sister’s vast experience as a former Congresswoman, along with her 9 years as Governor in their hometown province, Gov. Marcos will definitely be an asset in the Senate.


Nostalgic Moments

Bongbong Marcos reminisces that he filed his candidacy for Senator in 2010 and eight years later, his sister did the same. So he couldn’t help but feel nostalgic when his Manang Imee asked him to accompany her to COMELEC.


Appointment of the Next SC Chief Justice

The Chief Justice post was vacated by Teresita Leonardo de Castro who retired last October 10. President Du30 earlier said he chose De Castro since she was the most senior among the three justices in the shortlist. When asked if he would appoint Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio for the same reason, Du30 only said: “I will decide when I cross the bridge.” Carpio has repeatedly criticized some of the President’s policies, particularly the administration’s allegedly soft stance on the South China Sea dispute. Carpio also previously focused on the late Ferdinand Marcos’s alleged ineligibility to be interred at LNMB. This was because of the sovereign action of the people of removing him from office as President and Commander-in-Chief, he said.



Continuous Bilateral Ties with China

The Chinese consulate general office has formally opened in President Rodrigo Du30’s hometown, Davao City. Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. welcomed the Chinese consulate. He hailed it as a “testament to an immemorial friendship” between the Philippines and China. Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi inaugurated the consulate. His two-day visit would include bilateral meetings with Locsin and other officials that started during the Marcos regime. Locsin discusses the relevant partnership with Wang on trade, investments, infrastructure, tourism, and agriculture plus education, and anti-narcotics among others.


Relaxing Undas Tips

Playing the guitar, cleaning cemetery spots, writing Christmas lists, and many more family activities might be simple but they can surely take away the burden of issues like election cheatings, the appointment of the next Supreme Court Justice, and the possible joint-exploration with China in the South China Sea on top of the other joint ventures.

Why is Gov. Imee Marcos Optimistic about the Global Crisis Caused by the US-China Trade War

US-China Trade War


By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Governor Imee Marcos said that she does not have to explain the controversies during her father’s regime. It is enough seeing that most projects of the Marcos patriarch still exist at the present time in service to the people. Despite the expected world crisis brought by the US-China trade war, Gov. Marcos remains optimistic in governing her local territory. She is bound to run for Senator as her brother, Bongbong Marcos refuses to abandon his electoral protest against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo.



YouTube video by UNTV News and Rescue

[VIDEO]: Watch the full interview of Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos as she expresses her opinion on different political issues in the country and talks about various projects that she is implementing for the province of Ilocos Norte.


Abolish NFA

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos is still optimistic about the country’s current economic situation. However, she calls for the abolition of the National Food Authority (NFA). It is an agency created by her father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos, in 1972. Marcos blames the NFA for the current high prices of rice. She said that it fails to perform its mandate. Marcos, however, said the “tariffication” should be “measured” so as not to affect the livelihood of local farmers.

Kadiwa Revival

The NFA was created through Presidential Decree No. 4. Its abolition, therefore, requires the passage of a law. Several senators have called for NFA’s abolition following issues on rice shortage. Not to mention the soaring prices of the staple. Marcos also presses for the revival of the Kadiwa market system. It was first implemented during her father’s time.


US Control

Meanwhile, the Trump administration is trying to prevent China from getting emerging technologies such as 5G. It is the next generation of wireless. President Donald Trump has been critical of China’s trade practices. He says they restrict access to certain markets and force American firms doing business there to hand over valuable technology and trade secrets.

US-China Trade War

This comes on top of tariffs the U.S. has slapped on some $250 billion of Chinese imports. China has retaliated with its own set of tariffs on U.S. goods. Trump had considered putting a set of sweeping investment restrictions on China but decided to go along with a plan to grant Cfius broader review power, a win for Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who had been working behind the scenes to diffuse the trade spat.



Misguided Belief

On the other side of the world, Alibaba Group executive vice-chairman Joe Tsai, warns that China’s dispute with America is veering towards becoming a “cold war or a geopolitical war started by the United States”.  “I think what the United States is doing is a reaction to an unfounded fear that China’s rise is somehow going to threaten the national security and well-being of the American people,” said Tsai. But that belief was misguided because of the tremendous integration of national economies,


Stay Optimistic

Tsai believes that the United States would “suffer more” from the dispute – but added he remained optimistic because one should not be in business without optimism. This is actually true with the Ilocos Norte governor. Despite the hardships felt in her province, Gov. Marcos remains optimistic as she speaks about the imported Galunggong that used to be the cheapest fish in the country. She said that the importation is necessary to bring the prices down. Only people who think outside of the box can understand that.

Duterte-Marcos Alliance Causes Dark Age for the LP with China at their Back

China





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The LP or Liberalism worldwide faces its dark age when Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte side by side with the Marcoses resumes the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ bilateral ties with China. It starts when both Imee and Bongbong Marcos join the Filipino leader’s entourage during his initial Beijing visit. The relationship of both countries flourishes as economic and security partners. Liberal Party Senators panic and lead demonstrations as the majority of Filipinos are amused with Duterte’s brilliance.







Youtube video by; PolitikoTV Channel

[VIDEO]: President Rodrigo Duterte says China won’t allow his removal from office.

President Xi’s Assurance

The assurances of Xi Jinping are very encouraging.’We will not allow you to be taken out from your office. We will not allow the Philippines to go to the dogs’, Duterte narrated President Xi’s words. Senator Antonio Trillanes and other LP Senators express their dismay over this declaration.



Diplomatic Deals

The two leaders met at the Boao Forum for Asia last month. They affirm the diplomatic relationship between Philippines and China amid territorial disputes. Duterte delivers a speech aboard the BRP Davao Del Sur. It docks at Casiguran Bay in Aurora, to lead the send-off for 50 Filipino scientists who will conduct research on the Benham Rise.




Brilliant Strategy for the South China Sea

The Philippines takes diplomatic action over the recent military moves and island building of the Chinese government through friendship. Duterte does not go for the international arbitral ruling invalidating Beijing’s vast claims in the South China Sea just yet. He promises to do so during his term.




The LP Loses its Force

The Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s removal results to Duterte’s dominance in all three branches of the government. On top of that, he is still the popular president of the Filipinos. Black media propaganda also deteriorates as people take their stand on social media. Even American oligarchs cannot defend the LP anymore with China on Duterte and Marcos’ side. Perhaps, even US President Donald Trump also agrees with both leaders’ diplomatic relationship and may follow suit for world peace.

Gov. Imee Marcos as Deuterium Hope Gears Up for Election 2019 with Lower Electricity Cost

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos narrates how the windmill power source came about in her province. During the time of her brother, Bongbong Marcos, the Dutch installed the initial structures after their research for a decade. They have combined electricity generated from solar devices from China with the windmill to fully supply the whole area. She explains that the key to lower energy cost is to minimize the use of gasoline. This catches the attention of the legitimate Deuterium explorers from the EsMaulana-PNOC joint-venture. Gov. Marcos is definitely the key to fast-tracking its permit while Bongbong Marcos’ VP election protest drags along. She is doing something to neutralize the high cost of gasoline to make the commodities affordable for her constituents.

[VIDEO]: Sagot Sa Bayan with Gov. Imee Marcos

Hydrogen Fuel Instead of Gasoline

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos recently calls on the Supreme Court for a rapid resolution of his protest against VP Leni Robredo. It has been 2 years and the process is still ongoing. The younger Marcos is the author of the Senate bill 408 in 2010 and calls for the renewal of alternative energy in 2013 by exploration, promotion, and development of deuterium hydrogen fuel sources abundant in the Philippine Sea particularly in Surigao and Cotabato basins.



Deuterium Possibility

Like any other economic developments, the deuterium case is also highly political. It goes through strict compliance with the Department of Energy even with the endorsement of President Rodrigo Du30 through his Special Assistant, Bong Go. He is also running for Senator. Another re-election candidate, Senator Nancy Binay is also supportive of the alternative energy source as the vice-chairperson of the Energy Committee and a member of the Senate Electoral Tribunal. She works hand in hand with the Marcoses on various issues. In fact,  she is the one who passes a resolution to investigate the 2016 election anomalies.




Tourism

Back to Ilocos Norte, it is not only about windmills, churches, lighthouses and white beaches. The popular Blue Lagoon in Pagudpud is actually a spot not just for the usual surfers but also for kite surfers. The sea might not be blue during the rainy season, but some great waves are surely abundant. Gov. Marcos is proud that her bailiwick is now a surfing destination.




Infrastructure

The lady governor understands the nature of her local people.  This is evident when she said that the heat in her hometown is very much felt because of their outdoor lifestyle. Farming is a major means of living. The nationwide garlic supply comes from them. She made sure that the agricultural infrastructure like the irrigation system is sufficient. Community facilities are also designed to strengthen families regardless of origin. Highland, mid-land, and city dwellers benefit from the designated public service amenities.
