Senator Bet, Imee Marcos can be the Solution for her Brother’s Electoral Protest Hiccups

Some media tried to make a big fuzz on Gov. Imee Marcos as the daughter of the late President who declared martial law when she filed her COC previously. She was asked if she heard the isolated “Never Again” chants from the LP group when she arrived at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) central office. All she can remember was what the “solutions” reply of her supporters because she has many of that. Gov. Marcos is now in the magic 12 despite not doing any substantial campaigns yet for Senator. She is even capable of bagging an executive position should her brother’s good nature takes a toll on his electoral protest against Leni Robredo for Vice President.

LP’s Story

Supporters of Liberal Party (LP) senatorial bet, human rights lawyer Chel Diokno – some of who were alleged Martial Law victims – chanted, “Never again to Martial Law!” However, the governor is very much inclined to the glee of her supporters that she hardly noticed their pleas. This has been an old trick of the opposition to demonize martial law to discredit the Marcos siblings. Luckily for them, it’s their performance and the legacy of their father’s pro-country projects that excel in the long run.


Lots of Solutions

The eldest child of the late President Ferdinand Marcos was gracious enough to say that she “could not understand the calls clearly from Diokno’s camp.” She is accompanied by her mother, former First Lady Imelda Marcos, who is seeking to replace Imee as Ilocos Norte governor. Her brother Bongbong Marcos, a former senator who is contesting the results of the 2016 vice presidential election; and her sons were also present during her COC filing. Clearly, she not only has lots of solutions to the country’s problems but she is the solution herself for what her family is going through.


Martial Law Blame

“I have no clue, sorry, I think it’s, ‘Imee, solution,’ because I always have an answer,” Gov. Marcos said. So she couldn’t hear the shouts against Martial Law. She replied to the reporters, “No, these are my friends from old Kabataang Barangay.” It is typical in the country that the detractors of the Marcoses capitalize on the black propaganda launched by the LP against their patriarch to stop their rise in the top government posts. Nevertheless, it is evident that their current popularity is at a peak because people learned how to verify what they hear from the mainstream media.



Kabataang Barangay

The KB, forerunner of the Sangguniang Kabataan, was headed by Imee Marcos during Martial Law. It was a council based in the villages that allowed the youth to engage in public affairs. So, it is not a surprise why the millennials can relate to her every step of the way. The internet and social media are definitely vital in information dissemination.


No Sweat

The Marcos supporters’ chant “Marcos, Marcos, Marcos at the Comelec is more relevant because Gov. Marcos managed to be included in the magic 12 or the senatorial seats without a sweat. She currently denied answering the question if she will consider higher posts after winning as a Senator. Despite that, it is a no-brainer to know that she is always ready to take on a responsibility on behalf of her brother whom she describes as a very good person.

Panelo: Facebook is Not the Only Social Media Platform For the Du30 Supporters

Facebook


By: Elena Grace Flores

Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that the removal of the pro-Du30 pages from Facebook does not speak about the profile of the President’s supporters. FB decides to take down pages supportive of the President due to alleged spam content and violation of its authenticity policies. The Filipino leader’s avid followers still have enough social media platforms to express their support outside of the number one social media platform in the Philippines, added Panelo. Duterte Media, Duterte sa Pagbabago Bukas, DDS, Duterte Phenomenon and DU30 Trending News were among the pages removed. Manang Imee, a page that endorses Du30’s ally, Gov. Imee Marcos’ senatorial bid in the 2019 elections also did not survive the purge.

Just Riding On at Facebook?

All these groups back President Du30. It is not sure, however,  the administrators of these pages are actual supporters of the president. They can just be profiting off from his popularity. “Manang Imee”, on the other hand, expresses support for the eldest daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. Marcos is a close political ally of Du30.


2nd Massive Removal

Facebook has removed over 100 pages and accounts in the Philippines, including several Pro-Du30 groups that it said, violated its policies on spam. This is just the second time after Maria Ressa, the founder of Rappler accuses FB of aiding Du30  in 2017. It is obvious that the intensity of these groups can drive her business into bankruptcy.


Political Twist

Ressa and her company are known to be the supporters of the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo’s political party. Robredo leads the opposition slate and is anxious to replace the president, according to reports. Her ultimate dream can be jeopardized by the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos, the brother of Gov. Marcos.



Purging Reason

It said the pages and accounts, which were mostly political or entertainment-themed, directed visitors to “low-quality websites that contain little substantive content and are full of disruptive ads”.


Online Security vs. Freedom of Speech

The US is the number one country where Cambridge Analytica had improper access to Facebook users’ data. Number two is the Philippines. This is where the corruption of more than a million Filipino data can take place. Facebook’s move is their prerogative for online security. However, they should know that Article III Section 4 of the 1987 Constitution of the Philippines specifies that; no law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech or of expression.

See Why Bongbong Marcos’ VP Protest is a Proof that Du30 is NOT a Dictator

protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ever since the elections 2016, President Rodrigo Du30 has been very consistent that he does not want to be in the top post of the country. Instead, he intends to pass over the presidency to Bongbong Marcos who is likely his real successor. Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is slowly progressing. The gag order to both camps made it very quiet. Thus causing apprehensions among the people. If Du30 is really a dictator as what his detractors claim, then this should not be the case.

Du30’s Endorsement in China

The anti-Du30 administration media cannot hide the fact that the President endorses Marcos during one of his earlier trips in China. He said that if he wins the electoral protest, the Philippines will have a new Vice President. True enough to his world, he never fails to show his acceptance to VP Leni Robredo. This made her resign from his cabinet. She is now out of the loop and only uses her office to block the anticipated takeover.




Bongbong Marcos’ Clarification and Protest

Marcos’ clarification during his pre-election debate with Du30’s running mate, now Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Alan Peter Cayetano is clear that he understands the President’s intention. Despite this huge favor, he is not happy of the enormous electoral protest delay. He criticizes Robredo’s motion for grave concern over the use of a plastic magnifying glass by his revisor. As dictated by the rule of law, Du30 can’t do anything about it.




Propaganda against Democracy

The government critics are clearly foolish when they accuse Du30 of dictatorship. They should know that the Philippine constitution dictates that there are 3 equal branches of government that can dispute each other. This means that the Filipino leader cannot drastically change the country’s policies. He can only talk about it however he likes but the legal processes remain. Surprisingly, no critic of him ever disputes the PET’s gag order which is clearly a suppression of the freedom for information.









The President’s Wish

The President said that if he cannot solve the crime problem in 3 to 6 months, he will turn over the post to Bongbong. It is specific that’s it’s for him. Not to whoever claims to be the VP.  If he has his way, he can just settle back in Davao and enjoy being a grandfather. He is surely not getting any younger. Marcos might be seen getting ready for whatever happens but the opposition is expected to do whatever it can again to block him from the presidency. Majority of Filipinos voted for Du30 and his trust rating remains high. Therefore, the country is now ready for the next Marcos to be President in the era of greatness.

Bongbong Marcos: Election Cheating Deprives People of Democracy

democracy





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

VP Leni Robredo’s team seems to master the art of deception. Their electoral protest moves are nothing but another vain attempt to mislead the public. Calling the presence of boxes on the ballot images instead of the circles a technology enhancement is a lie. The people deserve nothing but a credible and authentic reason why the squares, instead of the original circles, are there; said Atty. Vic Rodriguez. This is in line with Bongbong Marcos’ principle that elections are the very foundation of democracy.










Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos discusses the importance of his protest as he says “Elections are the very Foundation of Democracy”. He comments that we need to ensure that the electoral system is trustworthy if we are to encourage the youth to take part in the country.




An Insult to the People

Weighed in the balance and found wanting, the excuses are so feeble and insulting to the intelligence of the Filipino electorate as it provides them too little too late. The squares should not be there because, during the source code review, no boxes were shown. If ever, the boxes must have been added after the source code review which is against the law.



Trampled Rights

They have trampled on the right of the Filipino people and deprived them of their duly elected vice president. Now two years on, they are continuing their web of lies even in the face of direct and solid evidence of rampant cheating. This is the grandest and longest deception ever committed against the Filipino people.



One-Sided Democracy

Liberals like Ressa and their media counterparts locally and in the United States are famous for blaming others for their own doings. VP Leni Robredo always refers to the alleged trolls and fake news of Bongbong Marcos whenever she suffers low ratings. However, she and Ressa never question Silent No More that favors them. They attack the majority who are against them. This is not a democracy.




Marcos: Cut the Crap, Cheater

On Bongbong Marcos’ video series 4, he expresses his dismay over the PET chairman’s favoring Vice President Leni Robredo. He stresses that aside from the delays caused by of out of this world motions of considerations, he cannot tolerate their lies anymore about the discrepancies found in the ballot soft copies. Marcos suggests to just explain why the undervotes mostly went to Robredo. He then urges the VP to cut the crap and just admit that they really cheated during the 2016 election.

Bongbong Marcos Failed to Fast-track Protest as Recount is Further Delayed

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Political analyst Ramon Casiple was right. He said that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo will reach the 2019 elections. It is not about the substance of the complaint since it is evident that there was cheating especially now that the impeachment of the COMELEC Chair is more likely.

[VIDEO]: Political analyst Ramon Casiple shares his thoughts on the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo.



Not Helping Yet

Marcos is successful in his bid to have 3 commissioners to supervise the electoral protest proceedings. However, Robredo’s Camp manages to halt it on the first part of his three courses of actions. CJ Sereno’s possible impeachment also slows down the process. In fact, the recount is already overshadowed by Bautista’s scandal and Kian’s death.




Identification of Witnesses

As discussed in the preliminary conference, both camps agreed to limit witnesses to 3 for each of the 2,756 clustered precincts in Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao and Basilan. They are told to identify them in their comments. Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal points out that in Marcos’ response, he failed to identify such witnesses. He just made the same reservation as such.



Banking on Protest Inconsistencies

Robredo’s lawyers are very vigilant in every detail that can possibly delay the recount. This is already taken since various Representatives of the House endorsed Chairman Andres Bautista’s impeachment complaint. That alone already clouds the integrity of the 2016 automated elections.








Election 2019 Decision

Protestant Marcos may not admit that he has to already decide this early on what to do during the Senatorial election in 2019. He may continue the protest and let his sister, Gov. Imee Marcos to run as Senator than seek another term. He can also do otherwise and face the consequence to moot his case against Robredo. Besides, there’s the election 2022 as well where he could run as President which he can be a popular bet if he wins the electoral protest. Whatever he does, he has to decide soon.
