Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza recounts his rare conversation with the former first lady Imelda Marcos about an infamous treasure. Atienza said that Rep. Marcos once told him about 7,000 tons of gold that can be used for the economy. If these are part of the wealth for humanity that her late husband deposited at the World Bank she, cannot decide on her own on what to do with them.
[VIDEO]: Atienza: Imelda Marcos wanted to return 7,000 tons of gold to PH
When they were both sponsors in a wedding sometime in the 2000s when he was mayor, Atienza said Marcos told him about the 7,000 tons of gold deposited in different parts of the world so that the country could pay off its foreign debt. This coincides with the World Bank gold reserves of her late husband. They were shipped around the world as sanctioned by the financial entity.
Liberate the Nation from Debts
Atienza quoted Marcos as saying: “I’ll liberate the nation from foreign debt. I heard directly from Congresswoman Imelda Marcos when I was a mayor. She said that she wants to hand over the gold to the government here so that the country will be free from its debts,” Atienza said.
Interference of a Super Power
I told her, ‘why don’t you do it?’ She said a superpower was interfering,” Atienza added. He did not name the superpower allegedly blocking the release of the Marcos gold. But America has been known to carry such title. Can this be the reason why the Liberal Party’s supporters are mainly from the US?
Protecting the Economy
This incident was disclosed after the President said that a Marcos spokesperson explains the reason that the wealth appeared to be hidden because ex-President Marcos was “protecting the economy.” It is remembered that Marcos negotiated with then President Cory Aquino to let him return from exile to explain about the wealth but she denied him this opportunity. That’s why they are called hidden wealth by his detractors.
Bongbong Marcos can only say to Leni Robredo; good luck to both. One can never undermine the act of kindness even during bad times. This is what makes the world go round. Everyone must be both the giver and the receiver to balance a rich economy. See how Marcos manages his resources in different situations.

Recount in Pilot Areas
The recount on the 3 pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is necessary to determine if a further recount is needed. This is vital because failure to show discrepancy as per his electoral protest against Leni Robredo can cause the dismissal of the case. He is confident that the slim margin can easily be surpassed once it’s done. It may not affect other candidates because there are indications that the omitted votes were directed to him.
Resources Management on Pool of Money
It is a normal thing in the society of the rich that they pool in money for a cause. Marcos’ protest is considered by his friends as such. Naturally, whatever your status may be, you are likely to have the same kind of friends. Since he is generous and a dedicated public servant, it is not surprising that he also has a like-minded group of supporters.
Ilocos 6 Brotherly Advice
Marcos said his advice to sister Imee is brotherly. He is not a lawyer that can be guilty of persuading his client to avoid the hearing ordered on July 25. Besides, she can really be in danger if nothing can convince the House Committee that she has done the right thing for the welfare of her constituents.
He also shared some intelligence report that some insurgents found in Marawi are foreigners. This is an indication that the siege there is internationally perpetrated. Since world wide terrorism is a highlight now with ISIS’ initiatives, Marcos discloses that the President concentrates on this matter for the time being. The country’s economy might be affected by the ongoing Mindanao Martial law – but it is better to look at it from a bigger perspective. Filipinos would not want the country to be another hub of ISIS. Just keep on buying and selling and the resources will balance out.
Filipinos might not be that optimistic nowadays but still hoping for a better life next year. The citizens’ optimism declined in the first quarter of 2017. This is based on the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey. The survey said that 43 percent expect their personal quality of life to improve in the next 12 months. 43 percent expect their personal quality of life to improve in the next 12 months. Six percent expect it to get worse as the country refuses financial aid from the EU.

Still High Despite Decline

The December 2016 survey also showed that 48 percent expect their personal quality of life to improve. Only three percent expect it to get worse.
The President is not at all bluffing when he said that he will not accept conditional financial aid. He is very particular especially when it comes to the country’s drug war. The European Union Delegation to the Philippines confirmed that the country will no longer accept financial aid from the European Union (EU). The announcement comes from the EU-PH Delegation public affairs officer Thelma Gecolea. She states that the country turns down around 250 million euros or ₱13.88 billion of grants which are normally allocated to Muslim communities.
New DFA Secretary
The new Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano who just got confirmed almost instantly recently said that the President would refuse any aid that would impact the administration’s war on drugs. Financial aids must be given voluntarily. Therefore, discouraging internal affairs interference.
The President’s Instruction
The President’s instructions go that if nations want to help willingly, they are most welcome. Help with strings attached or conditions must be refused. No meddling in or stopping the campaign against drugs is acceptable.
