In time for the holy week, Bongbong Marcos urges the public to be patient. He explains that the Supreme Court has to go through many processes to be able to reach a fair verdict in his electoral protest against Leni Robredo. He, however, alerts voters to be vigilant on possible election anomalies during the midterm elections following the negative reports from various overseas Filipinos. His sister, Imee Marcos runs for Senator who is leading in the Hong Kong poll.

Update that Cannot be Disclosed

Marcos expresses his regret of not being able to announce the update of the protest point blank. This is due to the gag order of the Supreme Court. What is evident is his confidence to get a favorable result and his trust that he can get justice after all the sacrifices.

Recount is for Immediate Completion

The hopeful son of a great leader former President Ferdinand Marcos confirms once again that the recount in the 3 pilot provinces is due for completion if it is not yet the case. He knows that his evidences are substantial. This is why he appeals for the technical examination of the ballots in the ARMM region. The Comelec itself finds that 80% of the voters there are fake.

Comments on the Narco List Disclosure

The namesake of the Marcos patriarch finds announcing the list of drug-related politicians proper in warning the people. Nevertheless, he also suggests caution in doing this especially during elections. He said that it can be used by corrupt officials in power to discredit or intimidate their opponents.

The Yellow is Fading

There is a big reason for Marcos’ strong confidence to winning the electoral protest. Circumstances favor him over the LP opponents. They are doing everything they can to prevent him from coming back. Even Kris Aquino has to defend her brother despite their current rift. It seems that Mar Roxas, another senatorial candidate is abandoning the LP ship. His manager blames his defeat to the former President Noynoy Aquino’s depicting him as a side-kick just like Batman and Robin.

Clear Win

The conflict between ex-Pnoy and Kris is about her 2018 social media post. She laments about “why it was so clear” to her that President Rodrigo Du30 won in the 2016 elections. Roxas came second to him. Kris also remains civil with Marcos. She interviewed him once and they even have mutual friends. They are both godparents of a friend’s child. Will it be another clear win for Bongbong Marcos? It must be for SC to take this long. The decision should not be questionable. Therefore, Filipinos especially the Marcos loyalists must be patient.

Atty. Glenn Chong Explains that Protecting Bongbong Marcos was Not his Goal to Pin Down Smartmatic

Atty. Glenn Chong, one of the hottest faces to run for a Senate seat this 2019 election explains during an interview his affiliations with Bongbong Marcos. It happens that he asks Atty. George Garcia to include his name in the list of attorneys for Marcos’ defense team to prove a technical anomaly of Smartmatic. However, he never shows up during interpolations to protect Marcos. Therefore, he insists that he is not one of his electoral protest lawyers against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo. z

[VIDEO]: Si dating Biliran Rep. Glenn Chong ang haharap sa matinding job interview kasama si News5 Chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes. Karapat-dapat kaya siya para sa iyong boto?

2016 Transmission Anomalies/h3>

Chong points out 459 precincts already transmit their results that generate at least 220,000 votes before the election which are substantial enough for Robredo’s win. In the future, he recommends that if there’s a hybrid system with manual voting and counting, the physical counts are already in the precincts’ record. These can then be the basis for the digital transmissions should there be suspicious trends like in Robredo’s case.

Atty. Glenn Chong Needs to be a Senator

Chong confirms bluntly that he needs to be a Senator to be able to defeat the cheaters during elections. He would have his own legal forums and authority to defend his stand on clean election systems. As a private person, the mechanisms are limited to flourish his idealism to protect the people’s votes. He swears to realize this promise when elected.

Breaking his Spirit on Aide’s Murder

150 million is hilarious to be paid by a syndicate just to break Glenn Chong’s spirit according to the interviewer. She made it sound bizarre that someone actually would pay that to discourage a guy like Chong. He answers with the utmost composure saying that he’s noisy. Perhaps a pain in the neck for the election manipulators. Chong believes that Richard Santillan’s case was meant to scare him in pursuing his advocacy.

Political Platform Supported by Data

The anti-poverty projects of Glenn Chong follow the 3 foundations of health, education, and transportation. Poverty incidence in Biliran in 2007 was 65% but immediately drops to 30% after Chong left in just 3 years. He addresses the anchor’s question with legitimate data that cannot be contested.

Bongbong Marcos Support is Coincidental

Chong did not intend to protect Bongbong Marcos for his electoral protest fight but his concrete findings on Smartmatic’s anomalies put a lot of weight on Marcos’ case. Besides, he has a very effective online and offline systems that encourage common people to take part in his campaigns. Filipinos definitely need a Senator like him.

Du30′ Floats Ferdinand Marcos’ Maharlika Name Change as VP Electoral Protest Drags On

Ferdinand Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 recently said that the late President Ferdinand Marcos was right. During his time, he was really right, he added. He wanted to change the country’s name to Maharlika or the Republic of Maharlika. Maharlika is a Malay word and it means more of a concept of serenity and peace,” Du30 explained. “But it’s okay. When the time comes, let’s change the name. The President floats this idea as Bongbong Marcos, the only son of the late Philippine leader awaits the resolution of his VP electoral protest against Leni Robredo. z

Disunity Propaganda to Block Ferdinand Marcos

It is quite noticeable via social media that issues are raised to divide supporters of Marcos and Du30. Many posts imply that the President could have a hand to speed up the resolution of the VP electoral Protest that is now on its third year against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo. However, if one observes the Filipino leader’s actions, it is a sure thing that he is doing everything in his power to set the record straight for Marcos but following the rule of law. Often, Du30 thinks out loud but these signify his true feelings and intentions. People can only realize his achievements when they finally happen.

Supreme Court Decision

Meanwhile, Marcos, in his extremely urgent motion of grave concern with omnibus motion, wants PET to order the Voters Identification Division of the Commission on Elections–Election Records and Statistics Department (Comelec ERSD). This is to produce the documents involving its technical examination on the Voters Registration Records (VRRs) as against Election Day Computerized Voter’s List (EDCVL) of 508 established precincts in the provinces of Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, and Basilan. Robredo consistently opposes such forms of technical examinations of the ballots and insists for SC to use the allegedly tampered digital images.

Getting Rid of Spanish Colonialism

President spokesperson, Salvador Panelo said that President Du30 does not resent Spain’s 333-year colonial rule. He merely asserts the Filipinos’ national identity. “He said that Maharlika is a Malay word. Since we are Malays, we should have a name identified with us. I agree with him, I like the idea of Maharlika as a name for the Philippines,” Panelo clarified.

Two Arguments on the Name Change

There are two contradicting views about the supposed proposal to change the country’s name. “One, as one of my staff lawyers pointed out, the ‘Philippines’ is mentioned in the Constitution. So if you issued an executive order or passed legislation to rename it, some constitutional expert might say, ‘You cannot amend that, it’s in the Constitution’,” Panelo said. The other argument, according to the President’s spokesperson, is an instance where the name ‘Philippines’ was just established for the time being. The Constitution provides that Congress may enact a law that can change the name of the country. It needs to submit it to the people for a referendum,” Panelo said. He stresses that a mere executive order would not be effective.

Ferdinand Marcos for President in 2022

President Du3o certainly appears to endorse Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake. Ferdinand Marcos Jr., better known as Bongbong Marcos. He refers to him as his Vice President. It may be a lengthy process for Marcos to regain his position as the country’s second leader but Du30 potentially paves the way for his succession to the top job when he steps down before his term or in 2022 during the next Presidential elections.

Atty. George Garcia: Bongbong Marcos Won the Vice Presidency

Bongbong Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

The lawyer of Bongbong Marcos, Atty. George Garcia confirms to a recent interview that Marcos is indeed the winner of the Vice Presidential race in 2016 elections. He cannot say approximately how many ballots his camp won over because of the gag order. He also clarifies that the current update on the electoral protest refers to Marcos asking the PET for the revision of results outside of the 3 pilot provinces due to the evidence taken from another protest related to the case. The presumptive VP vehemently opposes this. z

YouTube video byABS-CBN News

[VIDEO]: The camp of former Sen. Bongbong Marcos is hoping the Presidential Electoral Tribunal will finally decide this year on their electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.

Robredo’s Opposition

The Marcos camp earlier motions to subpoena the Comelec to issue a handwritten report on their initial findings. This is an area outside of the 3 pilot province. It is also under protest by another candidate. It was found that 70% of the returns are not from real legible voters. Only one person did such an entry, it turns out. Robredo of course opposes this said plea through her lawyer, Atty. Romulo Macalintal.

Video Evidence

A video shows the alleged cheating that occurred in ARMM. This results in the petition of Marcos. He asks the PET to subpoena relevant documents in connection with the technical examination in the area. The election protest is by the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao gubernatorial candidate Sakur Tan against ARMM Regional Governor Mujiv Hataman. This is outside of Marcos’ 3 pilot provinces. Therefore, Macalintal opposes this on behalf of Robredo.

Robredo’s Attempt to Hide the Truth

The camp of Robredo criticizes the latest petition for a technical examination of votes in parts of Mindanao by Marcos. Macalintal said that he is “desperately trying to save his dying election protest.” Robredo’s lawyers Macalintal and Bernadette Sardillo released to the media their counter-manifestation to Marcos’ petition. They filed this on January 14.

Not Related?

Macalintal decries the use of the examination from an election protest to the one filed by Marcos apart from the pilot provinces. He said: “That case has nothing to do with the election protest of Marcos now being heard by the PET.” “Robredo was not a party thereof nor was Marcos.” The pilot provinces petitioned and approved for an ongoing vice presidential recount only include precincts in Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. However, in every sense of the world, if the majority of voters in the area are fake, chances are, the results are incorrect. This can generate a substantial lead for Marcos.

Bongbong Marcos Won the Vice Presidency

The recount of the said pilot provinces, where Marcos’ alleges voting fraud took place, began last April. The electoral protest itself is now on its third year. It is the first election protest of the PET to reach the recount level under the 1987 Constitution. Marcos’ election fraud allegations coincide with the findings of the clean election advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong. The people await the finality of this case to know if the real VP is indeed Bongbong Marcos and not the presumptive one, Leni Robredo. Atty. Garcia’s confirmation of Marcos’ victory made a lot of people more anxious to see the real VP sit on his post very soon.

Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Update for Chinese New Year

electoral protest
By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos finds a good season for announcing the latest electoral protest update during the Chinese New Year. He explains that there are 3 reasons for the legal action. These causes of action are 1) The digital system is questionable because of the anomalies undertaken by Smartmatic. 2) there were no elections in some precincts in ARMM. 3) there were other places that had some irregularities that should be considered rather than refer to the automated images. z

YouTube video byBongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: They say that in the Year of the Pig, fortune favors those who are patient. So for those who have been waiting patiently for news about my election protest, this update is dedicated to you.

Electoral Protest Recount Proceedings

Marcos came up with 8,000 witnesses against the said election frauds but the PET deferred the first cause of action to give way for the recount. Now, the recount of the first 3 pilot provinces namely; Negros Occidental, Camarines Sur, and Iloilo that show many anomalies are about to be completed. The ballots are about to be decided by the justices if they are perfect reproductions of the original. The Comelec can’t even explain it and promises to ask Smartmatic about it that amused the audience during a Senate hearing. It is definitely not a game over case yet.

Appreciation Phase

The electoral protest status is contrary to Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal’s announcement. He might only be desperate of media mileage for his Senate candidacy. Marcos said that the discussion on the fraudulent acts is not yet undertaken. This is called the appreciation phase.

The Recount is Not the Ultimate Basis

To prove that anomalies did happen during the 2016 elections, the results of the ballot recount in the pilot provinces must convince the PET that there was indeed fraud. Only around 200 plus more presincts are left for counting. Both sides have to contest if the questionable ballots must be counted or not right after that. Macalintal always says that the concerns raised by Marcos are but normal occurences. However, Atty. Vic Rodriguez insists that for one thing, the tampered ballots are not anymore a faithful reproduction of the original which is against the law.

Not Right to Let the People Wait for a Long Time

The former Senator is so dedicated to finalizing his electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Robredo. In fact, he is not running for the next elections because his previous votes in 2016 are not yet counted. The verdict of the said protest can determine if the country still has hope to be able to conduct a clean and honest poll. The 2019 race should be under close watch because Smartmatic is still a player despite its shortcomings.

Supporting his Nephews and Sister

Aside from supporting his sister, Imee Marcos’ Senatorial bid who is on the top 10 favorites, Marcos will frequent Ilocos Norte because his budding nephews are progressing in their political careers. He vows to campaign for them. So, even if his term as VP is set aside, the Marcoses’ reign in the Philippines is very well secured with the young generation.
