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.

The Pro and Anti-Marcos Battle of Senators Evident in Arroyo’s Electoral Sabotage Acquittal

Senators
By: Elena Grace Flores

Since the former President and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is cleared of electoral sabotage, the battle of the pro and anti-Marcos senators is evident. Among the 2007 Team Unity “winners” was Juan Miguel Zubiri. Koko Pimentel contested Zubiri’s narrow victory over him before the Comelec. He was declared the rightful winner in the senatorial elections in 2011. However, a week before the Senate Electoral Tribunal reached the decision, Zubiri had already resigned as senator amid the alleged electoral fraud allegations that are currently proven as non-existent. z

Guilt Not Proven

Judge Jesus Mupas said; “For failure of the prosecution to prove the guilt of accused Arroyo beyond a reasonable doubt and moral certainty despite ample opportunity and even without evidence in favor of said accused, the demurrer to evidence is granted and the charge of electoral sabotage against accused Arroyo is hereby ordered dismissed.”

Demurrer to Evidence

Mupas grants Arroyo’s Demurrer to Evidence, which means that the former president never presented evidence in the trial. The 6-page decision dismisses the credibility of the whistleblower, former Maguindanao provincial administrator Norie Unas, who said that he heard Arroyo say; It should be 12-0 in Maguindanao, even if you have to fix or change the results.

Pro Marcos Senator

Looking back, Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri proposed in 2009 the construction of a 40-foot mega-floodway in Parañaque. This is to allow floodwaters to drain into the Manila Bay and prevent widespread flooding. He wanted to have another look into the Marcos-era mega-spillway plan as designed since the term of former President Ferdinand Marcos. Instead of holding miners in the neck, Zubiri is into strategic planning. Gina Lopez was even disappointed when he voted against her appointment as DENR Secretary.

Environmental Advocacy that Makes Sense

The frustration of Lopez is understandable. She can only blame the big mining businesses for the disastrous calamities. However, it is worth taking a look at how the government can support the mining industry to thrive without endangering the environment. This is what Marcos is advocating for and Zubiri echoes that.

Battle of the Senators

Senator Zubiri and Pimentel symbolize the pro and anti-Marcos supporters. Senator Koko Pimentel was critical of former First Lady and now Rep. Imelda Marcos on using her age to avoid detention if the verdict against her becomes executory. His father, Nene Pimentel has always been a critic of the late President Ferdinand Marcos and martial law during his regime. It looks like Zubiri’s and other pro-Marcos stalwarts’ right time is now.

Albayalde Hears Atty. Chong Out Who is the Key to Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest

By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong, the clean election advocate who discloses the 2016 election anomalies that led to the Vice Presidential defeat of Bongbong Marcos is mourning over the torture and death of his long-time aide, Richard Santillan. PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde swears to punish the police scalawags responsible for the crime. He is watching the investigation closely. z

YouTube video byPTV

[VIDEO]:NEWS BREAK: PNP Chief Albayalde, nakatutok sa imbestigasyon sa pagkamatay ni Richard Santillan.

PAO’s Autopsy Report

Public Attorney’s Office chief Persida Acosta said that an autopsy by the agency finds that Richard Santillan III, the aide of Atty. Chong was tortured before he was killed. According to police, Santillan and his female companion were killed in an operation in Barangay San Andres, Cainta, Rizal on December 11. Therefore, it suggests that the dead body of Santillan was dragged into the road to make it look like a shootout.

Speaking from the Grave

The police reportedly intercept Chong’s vehicle driven by Santillan. But the aide allegedly steps on the gas instead of pulling over. This they said is the reason for the brief exchange of gunfire. However, there is ample physical evidence that the incident was definitely not what the men in uniform said it was. Acosta describes the scenario as the dead speaking from the grave.

Constant Companion

Santillan was Chong’s driver and bodyguard that he treats like a brother for the last eleven years. The lawyer is a former Biliran representative who is now running for Senator. The aide stays at the election fraud whistleblower as he exposes the Comelec and Smartmatic’s fraudulent acts. He was also active in endorsing Chong for the national position in his own capacity. The widow of Santillan attests that her husband can’t possibly do any crime that the police insinuates because he was always with Chong.

PAO’s Mandate

Dr. Erwin Erfe, PAO’s forensic laboratory director said that their examination shows that Santillan was shot even though he was already dead. PAO Chief Acosta added that Santillan’s family is seeking justice because of the alleged torture. The Public Attorney’s Office is mandated to render free legal representation, representation, assistance, and counseling to indigent persons in criminal, civil, labor, administrative and other quasi-judicial cases. Acosta clarifies that since Santillan’s surviving wife is earning only a minimum wage, the family is considered an indigent.

Albayalde to Help Election Lawyer

“I have no enemies except for Comelec and Smartmatic, Chong said. This is the only angle I can see for this incident. They want to scare me by hurting the people close to me,” he added. The lawyer’s testimonies in congressional inquiries on alleged poll fraud in the 2016 elections are really vital in Marcos’ election protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. Meanwhile, the PAO chief asks for records of the police operation that resulted in the death of Santillan directly from Director General Oscar Albayalde. He responds with a promise of justice should his men be found guilty of Chong’s accusations.

Imee Marcos blasts Anchor for Repeated Supreme Court Questions

Supreme Court
By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte governor and 2019 candidate for Senator, Imee Marcos says her family’s wealth came from her father’s successful law practice. He had some investments in various industries as well. Gov. Marcos also clarifies the source of the $300-M Swiss bank accounts deposits that the Supreme Court ordered confiscated in 2003. She explains that it was still a legal question and called the achor “makulit” or annoying for asking the same questions over and over again. z

YouTube video byOne News PH

[VIDEO]:’No big mystery’

Vast Investments

One of the Chiefs’ hosts disputes Marcos that based on his father’s asset declaration during his time, his monthly income was only Php 120,000. Gov. Marcos shrugs this off saying that legal documentations are already in court and she is not surprised if there are some propaganda or politicking rumors that are used to jeopardize the real score. All she knows are his vast investments in telecommunication, mining, and many other industries.

Hard-Working Family

Even the anchor agrees that the Marcoses are notable hard workers. The Senatorial bet is proud of this. Perhaps, the ultimate reason why they never struggle in life financially. It would be unfair to give credit to the golden urban legend, she said. Leave the rumors with the legal experts, she added.

Repeated Questions

Softly and jokingly, Marcos calls the interviewer “makulit” (annoying) for asking repeated questions that are restructured to press for different answers from her. However, she remained calm and blasts the naughty one with a sarcastic joke. There might be some discussions about gold deposits but she has never seen one physical gold bar unlike her mother before her father became President.

Hardships after EDSA

The Marcos family never had any financial difficulties until EDSA. Marcos relays their bad experience when they were thrown to another unfamiliar country. It was hard enough not knowing anybody. Least not having their usual financial support and moral system.

Ask the Lawyers about the Supreme Court Ruling

Upon the insistence of the host regarding the 2003 Supreme Court ruling, Marcos blatantly advised him to ask the lawyers instead since there are some relating cases that are ongoing. Bongbong Marcos already answered them earlier but they want a different one. Well, unfortunately for them, they cannot get anything controversial from Imee Marcos. After all, she is a Marcos and possesses the intellect and charm of her father.
