Why Bongbong Marcos Must Not Allow Supreme Court to Use the ERs for the VP Recount?

(Please rewrite for new tone: keyword- Supreme Court)

Atty. Glenn Chong’s questions the PET resolution, saying that the printed election returns will only be used in the initial cutting by ballot. There’s a big question at this point. The election returns or result of the election and the report or summary of the ballot and votes are both inspired by the single document only – the ballot images or image of the ballot that the machine took after entering the voter’s ballot in the VCM. Mr. Edmund Casino of the Computer Society of the Philippines expresses his disgust over the decrypted images that prove to be not the replica of the original ballots. This alone he said is a violation of the election law. The Supreme Court recently rules to use the election returns as the basis of the recount after setting aside the threshold dispute.

Data Illustration

In the image is a report from precinct 17040010 in Bombon, CAMARINES SUR. This report will be visible to the of sections of this report from the machine and the explanations in these data.

Lost Ballots in the Supreme Court Count

In the vice presidential contest, we can see all the votes read and counted by the machine (no one voted + so much voted + all votes obtained by all candidates) were 667 only. But according to the machine, there were 679  votes and 679 used ballots during the poll. Why 667 votes only were read by the machine? Where are the 12 votes that should be counted? The Supreme Court gag order is successful covering this up.


Ambiguous Marks

See the report where the 12 votes have been placed. If it’s abstentions, it means the voter has no vote. It should be in the under-votes because there is no vote. But why place in abstentions? It’s clear that there is an ambiguous character or an un-clear mark that the machine does not know. The 5 % to 20 % of markings in the oval space actually serve as ambiguous marks. This is why the Supreme Court must not adhere to the 25% plea of the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo.



Cheating Strategy

The alien marking or a small dot (5 % to 20 % of the oval space) in the oval of the fraudulent candidate for the position to be deceived allows the machine to classify it as a vote for the cheater before it reaches the voter’s hand. When the voter voted any candidate in this position except the fraudulent candidate with a small dot (ambiguous mark) at the oval, the voter’s vote for the voted candidate is not counted even if the round-shaped shading area is marked. This is because there is an ambiguous mark in one of the candidates in such a position. It will go to the abstentions. The Supreme Court must scrutinize this.


Be Knowledgeable

But if the fraudulent candidate with a small dot is voted by the voter, of course, the mark will be made in the round-shaped shading area. It will be counted for the cheater because the ambiguous mark will be lost at the oval of this candidate. That’s just simple and logical for programmers. How many votes did get in this way? There were 92,509 ports that opened on the election day. Let’s say at least 12 each is in this nature and the average measure is 25 % (yes, that 25 %!), it will reach 370,036 votes per precinct. It can definitely win the VP post!

The Supreme Court Clarifies that the 25% Shading Verdict Does Not Favor Robredo but Speeds Up Marcos’ Protest

Supreme Court




By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos has to rehabilitate his name for the presidency if he wins his electoral protest against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo. This is after more than 32 years after his father’s fall during the controversial Edsa revolution or mutiny in1986. Currently, the Supreme Court clarifies that it does not explicitly side with Robredo’s plea to recognize ballots with ovals shaded 25 percent as valid votes. Contrary to the claim of Robredo and the Comelec, the tribunal was not aware that the commission used a 25-percent threshold. The Comelec resolution was not attached to the letter sent to the tribunal in September 2016. The Tribunal only partially granted Robredo’s plea to set aside an earlier resolution on the 50-percent threshold. Instead of it, the PET directs head revisers to “refer to the election returns. This is to verify the total number of votes as read and counted by the vote counting machines (VCM).” That can speed up Bongbong Marcos’ protest. Atty. Vic Rodriguez, the lawyer of the former Senator describes the highly magnified ruling bu the mainstream media as a “non-issue.”

The Supreme Court Focuses on the Election Returns Verification

To verify votes using the election returns (ERs) “shall be strict. This is during the appreciation of ballots by the tribunal,” said the Supreme Court resolution. ERs refer to the electronic document prints produced by the voting machines. They tally the total votes of each candidate per precinct. The PET amends Rule 62 of the 2018 PET Revisor’s Guide that pertains to the segregation of contested votes, “effective immediately.” The rule did not mention the use of ERs previously. The PET notes that using ERs would achieve the objective of verifying how the VCMs read the votes.”

Speeding Up Marcos’ Protest

Using the ERs may speed up the revision process, or the identification of precincts, which show signs of significant anomalies. This would allow the procedure to be “more flexible and adaptive to calibrations of the voting or counting machines in the future,” the PET said.  It points out that ERs could easily show discrepancies in the counting of votes, especially if the initial number did not match the physical count of ballots.



Robredo is Successful only on her Appeal

Robredo first questioned the rule in an April 5 motion The PET denied it in an April 10 resolution. Only when she filed an appeal did Robredo submit a copy of Comelec Resolution No. 16-0600d. It was dated Sept. 6, 2016, which served as the basis for her plea. Marcos opposed Robredo’s pleadings. The Office of the Solicitor General sided with him instead of the Comelec. SolGen Jose Calida agreed that the 25-percent threshold should be sustained.


Fear of Disenfranchising Voters

The Supreme Court said there was “no basis” to impose the 50-percent threshold. But, it maintained that when it drafted and approved the rule, it was “never informed of any official act of the Comelec” adopting the 25-percent threshold. Comelec Commissioner Luie Tito Guia did inform the PET about the 25-percent threshold on Sept. 6, 2016, letter. However, the tribunal said it was not given a copy. Robredo assailed the stricter 50-percent threshold supported by Marcos. She fears that this would disenfranchise voters who shaded their votes less thoroughly.




Highly Premature Claim

The PET also told Robredo that with the ongoing recount or revision proceedings, “there is yet no final deduction or addition of votes.” Robredo earlier noted in her motion for reconsideration that in vote counting at Barangay Laganac in Balatan, Camarines Sur where Robredo received 358 votes. Upon the application of the 50 percent threshold, a physical recount on the ballot yielded 346 votes for her. Votes for Marcos did not change in the tally. But the tribunal said that it would be “highly premature” of the Robredo camp to claim a deduction of votes at this stage. This can actually mean that the slight decrease can actually be massive after the many evidence of digital election fraud presented at the Senate.

Supreme Court Leaves Trillanes at the RTC as Enrile Reveals to Marcos Smartmatic’s Yellow Control

Supreme Court





By: Elena Grace Flores

Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile warns Bongbong Marcos that as long as Smartmatic controls the election, the Yellow’s dominance stays. Enrile reveals that the late President Cory had no clue when it comes to governance. However, the people around her who are anti-Marcos made sure to consolidate power through the important branches of government by installing a revolutionary constitution. To this date, they still have a stronghold over the important branches of government including the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, a known Yellow ally is now at the hands of the RTC. The court takes at least 30 days to resolve a motion. If the case is urgent enough, a judge can resolve it sooner. Judges Andres Soriano and Elmo Alameda, of the Makati Regional Trial Court, are under pressure when state prosecutors stormed to their sala. This is when the SC pushed Senator Trillanes’ petition back to the local courts.

Proclamation No. 572

Proclamation No. 572 revokes Trillanes’ amnesty. It also orders his arrest for his role in the Oakwood Mutiny of 2003 and the Manila Peninsula Siege of 2007. It was dated on the 31st of August but was only made public on the 4th of September through a newspaper publication. Despite the presidential order, the rebel senator is still seeking refuge at the Senate.



The DOJ

The Department of Justice then filed separate motions for the Judges of the Makati RTC to order Trillanes’ immediate arrest. However, the judges instead ordered a series of hearings. This is to allow both Trillanes and the state prosecutors to present their sides. The court’s proceeding allows a delay to the Senator’s arrest for at least 30 days.

Convicted Magdalos

Judge Soriano granted interviews and welcomed reporters after the DOJ filed their motion. The judge did not grant the DOJ’s request to immediately file a warrant of arrest, instead, he gave 10 days to Trillanes’ lawyers to comment, and 5 days for the prosecutors to file their rejoinder. People can just sense the power struggle through these agencies.



Aquino’s Amnesty Grant

During an interview, Soriano acknowledges that Trillanes and the Magdalo group’s’ rebellion case was dismissed on Sept. 21, 2011. It was dismissed by Judge Ma. Rita Sarabia, to follow the amnesty that was granted to them by President Aquino. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Trillanes can escape the imprisonment. The debate on his military status is still ongoing that can dispute the court-martial proceedings.




Sure Conviction Outside of Supreme Court

However, Soriano convicted First Lieutenants San Juan and Rex Bolo, as they did not avail of the amnesty. Consequently, the Court of Appeals cleared them both of their charges in April 2015. Furthermore, Soriano also ignored Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra’s pronouncement that the government’s application does not need a hearing. All these developments are clear proof that there’s no way current President Rodrigo Du30 can be a dictator.

Atty. Chong Uncovers the Election Syndicate’s Technique and Connivance

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

At the start of the Senate Hearing, both Comelec and Smartmatic was looking very confident. They seem to have a well-prepared script ready. Because of these scripted answers, they incurred the rage of Senator Tito Sotto. Sotto feels that they are trying to prove him wrong on his accusations of election fraud. He asserts that he would not have delivered the privilege speech if he wasn’t certain of his information, evidence and witnesses. Furthermore, Sotto says that he will bring out his witness at the next hearing.

Revealing the Conniving Culprits

This is where the syndicate starts to crumble. Chairman Abas now deviates from the script in an effort to save himself. Consequently, he is jeopardizing the others. Those in connivance with them tried to protect Comelec, but the assault was now relentless.



Senator Gordon’s Lecture

Senator Richard Gordon also lectured the syndicate. He also presented the Botong Pinoy voting system that can replace Smartmatic. Even worse, he stands that Comelec should have been sacked when it was under Andres Bautista. The fact that while the election was ongoing, there was someone watching porn on the DNS server is already too much.

A Party-list’s Testimony

Hours before the elections were over, the CONSLA party-list group listed 555,896 votes from the Transparency Server of the PPCRV. They secured screenshots from the Transparency Server information. They were in rank 14, which is within the winning parties. However, after a few days, the results came out with them only having 213,814 votes. The Comelec Central server gave them 342,082 votes less than what they have listed, losing their spot in the winning circle. Atty. Glenn Chong reveals all these information in the Senate who’s Facebook account was temporarily disabled right after the hearing.

 



Cannot be Denied by the Commission on Election

The syndicate can hardly get out of this one because the Transparency Server and the Comelec Central Server get their results from the same source, the VCMs. Both should have a copy of the results, but the mystery is where did the 342,082 votes for CONSLA go. Comelec in connivance with Smartmatic as well as PPCRV must be controlling the votes for those who can pay them. However, in the face of this issue, Comelec’s answer is only that they will look into it.




Concrete Evidence

The CONSLA have complained about this issue long before. However, the Comelec still doesn’t have answers? This same thing also happened with the ANG NARS party-list. They were summoned to the PICC for proclamation however just 30 mins before, Comelec brings out a new resolution. Both CONSLA and ANG NARS were dropped.

Atty. Chong Points Out Where the Possible Election Results were Sliced Out

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong insinuates where the possible cheating can happen during the election results transmissions. That coincides with another group’s decryption analysis in the middle of the cue server. Each individual file split into around 11 tallies. Possible cheating can happen where the votes can be divided into these tallies to favor the operator’s bets.

[VIDEO]: Atty. Glenn Chong explains his analysis of where the election results can be sliced out to favor a candidate.




Chopped-Up Tallies

Exploring the information on the previous poll elections brings us with more issues. As Chong presents, there were cases where the ballots were out of sequence or were just simply missing. He explains that there is a fourth queueing server.  The server works by disaggregating the results from the VCM, breaking up a file into 11 or 13 files. Furthermore, some of these chopped up tallies were transmitted to the corresponding servers asynchronously.



Unsatisfactory Answers from the Comelec

The Comelec is not being consistent in what the purpose of the fourth server is. Jose Tolentino, the Executive Director refers to it as a “meet me room”, basically a platform to bring in information coming from different telcos. However, another official explains that it serves as a backup server.


Doubtful Credibility of the Election

Smartmatic’s defense that no complaints or cases of the system altering the results is generally flawed. However, there are presented cases of different results from the VCM and a manual recount, brought about by Chong and another resource person.



Misleading News

What happened during the proceedings is certainly newsworthy. Chong’s revelations really bring out serious election irregularities. However, the media are ignoring these. Consequently, Rappler chooses to focus more on Chong’s association with the Marcoses.




Media Blackout on the Election Hearing

There were no reports about these bombshell revelations by Chong being featured on TV newscasts 6 pm shows. Newspapers offered no coverage on the matter both in print and online. Furthermore, even on Facebook, Chong’s posts are being marked as spam, even those reshared by his followers.
