History Repeats Itself on Official Canvass: Then Macapagal vs Marcos now Robredo vs Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Seniors are nostalgic with what’s happening now – like Hilario Andes from Binay Brigade. He was quoted as saying that the 9th President of the Philippines, Diosdado Macapagal might lost during the 1965 national election to President Ferdinand Marcos on his reelection bid but won the hearts of many.

It was remembered that despite supporters fighting for him, he insisted on sticking to the results of the Official Canvass – telling everyone to hear the voice of the majority. Marcos was declared victorious and became the 10th Philippine President who’s named is now tinted with the martial law regime aftermath despite putting the country on the world map as the richest in Asia.

Now, the hope for Marcos supporters are also in a brim when controversies overshadow the inconsistent results of the Unofficial Partial Transparency Count via the server for the Vice Presidency race between Liberal Party’s bet Leni Robredo and former President Marcos’s son, Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. better known as Bongbong. Who will emerge as winner and who will make sacrifices? It remains to be seen if the full history will be repeated – to avoid unnecessary unrest.

Media Propaganda Against Binay Failed because of Social Media

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Imagine if there’s no Social Media at this point in time yet? How can the citizens of the Philippines voice out opinions on political issues among others? Needless to say, Vice President Jejomar Binay is luckier than the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Marcos, a great president suddenly became unpopular when he was accused with series of massacres that until now remained unresolved.

Nowadays, bad rumors can easily be contradicted just by going online and commenting via political forums, Twitter walls or Facebook pages. So, it’s just like a numbers game. The more the pro or anti, the winner they become. Philippines is indeed a country victimized by false publicity – from the leading Asian country to a chaotic 3rd world venue. This time around, it would be harder to fool people.

Social Media play a major part in today’s world whether we like it or not. You can choose not to participate but it is also to your own disadvantage. However, responsible use of Social Media is a must – not to corrupt the young ones. Use them wisely and supervise the minors online. So, goodbye Media Propaganda and hello, Social Media!

Time to Heal for Philippines with Binay – Marcos Alliance

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
No debate is definitely needed that one of the best Presidents the Philippines ever had can finally have the hero’s burial that his family is patiently waiting for. No matter how you look at it, President Ninoy Aquino’s heart is hardened not to allow this to happen in his time. However, since his term is about to end, only Vice President Jejomar Binay has been so outspoken to give his support to bury the great ex – President Ferdinand Marcos where he should be buried.

It is also known world-wide that the Marcos family still continue to win the hearts of many people in the political arena despite the negative publicity about them. If some people hate the Marcoses, there are more Filipinos and even non-Filipinos who love them dearly. This is because during the late President Ferdinand Marcos’s time, the Philippines is one of the most progressive countries in Asia if not the leading Asian territory economy speaking. The good deeds are continued by the Marcos siblings to this date in their own capacity as public servants – just like the Binays.

Experts knew that when negative issues are resolved, positive vibes can be felt nationwide – and this is the promise of the Binay – Marcos alliance. No pride, no bitterness and no competition between the two candidates. Only love, forgiveness and support for nation building. Time to heal, Philippines!

The Unifying President and the Strategist in Binay – Marcos Tandem

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It seems like there’s light at the end of the tunnel now in today’s Philippine politics with the emergence of the Vice President Jejomar Binay for President and Senator Bongbong Marcos for Vice President. As we already know, V.P. Binay aspires to be known as a unifying President and it will be a lot of help for Filipinos who are suffering from the wounds of the past. Despite not being endorsed by the outgoing President Aquino due to his well-known pledge to Mar Roxas for the latter’s sacrifice in the 2010 election, the Vice President and his family remain friends with the Aquino clan – from the Presidential sisters to the Aquino-Cojuangco uncles and aunts because of Binay’s role during Cory Aquino’s regime.

On the other hand, Senator Bongbong Marcos who’s family is a victim of political media propaganda by the father of the incumbent President, never had traces of bitterness in him. He is willing to be the Vice President contender for Binay – because he knew quite pretty well that 2016 is not yet his time for the Presidency. It is evident that his pride is not important – what matters is the future not just for the country but also for him which is quite brilliant – as a strategist himself.

The Binay – Marcos tandem for 2016 is almost confirmed if not yet announced by major media – and although many Marcos supporters are adamant of his decision to run under the Binay banner, little do they know that this is a very effective political strategy. When these opposing candidates merge as one team to battle the Liberal party, there’s little chance for Mar Roxas or even Grace Poe for the 2016 Presidential race.

Don’t Let Media Propaganda Ruin the Country Again

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
What is Media Propaganda?
Media propaganda is when the media is being used as political and social means to influence people’s attitudes and beliefs. The modern propaganda uses all the media available to spread its message, including: press, radio, television, film, computers, fax machines, posters, meetings, door-to-door canvassing, handbills, buttons, billboards, speeches, flags, street names, monuments, coins, stamps, books, plays, comic strips, poetry, music, sporting events, cultural events, company reports, libraries, awards and prizes.

Media Strategy
Media people swear before they become one to tell the truth and nothing but the truth – so creative writing or broadcasting is needed to be able to keep that promise or to avoid libel suits. However, the media cannot survive if there’s no business supporting their programs – and we all know that controversy sells a lot – thereby, the birth of provocative titles which are often misleading that results to total misunderstanding by the general public.

Media Propaganda Users
It is difficult for media entities to refuse large incomes because obviously, money is badly needed to be able to sustain their operation expenses. So, in this regard political giants surely can have access to this strategy to destroy their opponents. This is not about publishing false reports. This is normally involves broadcasting half-truth stories. Sometimes both sides of the stories are not covered. The use of “allegedly” is so obvious if you only pay attention to it – which means that the detail of the story is a hearsay by whoever is being interviewed. No concrete or hard evidence at all.

Media Propaganda Brain
In the Philippines, the Marcos regime that governed Philippines to become the most successful economy in Asia to the envy of other Asian countries was toppled because of Ninoy Aquino’s betrayal to his fraternity brother then the late President Ferdinand Marcos – who was once his financial supporter according to an insider’s blog.  This article although unfounded contained details of the troubled marriage of Cory and Ninoy contrary to the image that they wanted to create for the family through Ninoy’s media connections being a media man himself. The sour relationship even lasted until Ninoy was assassinated eventually in 1983.

Troubling Facts
It is evident that two Aquino’s already served as Presidents but the mastermind of the assassination is still not known. Only 16 were convicted and 20 were acquitted as reported.  Rumors had it that it can be Cory’s relatives contrary to the media propaganda that it was Ferdinand Marcos who was allegedly threatened that Ninoy Aquino would replace him as President because of his popularity triggered by media propaganda. It was however verified that Ninoy Aquino was already terminally ill or literally dying when he decided to come back to the Philippines. In fact he was in exile for three years in the U.S. for medical treatment after a heart attack.

Again, contrary to media propaganda that he was willing to die to be able to serve Filipinos. The “Filipinos are worth dying for” statement became popular since then.

Ninoy’s Betrayal
It was published in various media that Ninoy vowed to drop Sabah claim in pledge to get support from Malaysia in ousting Marcos.

Ninoy Aquino’s highly publicized accusations against Marcos paved the way to the diminishing reputation of President Marcos.

Was the assassination drama used and elaborated by the media for the Aquino’s to gain powered backed by their foreign supporters? Are they selling the land to the Malaysians? That would actually explain the President’s cold actions in helping Sultan Jamalul Kiram’s men in getting back Sabah through a suicide mission.  He is also very hesitant to fast track the Bangsamoro Law to be passed before his term expires in 2016.
Result of Aquino Governance

The present Aquino administration is making sure to install a President from their own Liberal Party to avoid being punished for their mismanagement as follow to name a few:

Fallen SAF 44 in Mamasapano
Yolanda Disaster Response
Shortage of Schools
Defective MRTs
Selective Justice
Failing Economy
Incompetent Appointees
Palpak na tuwid na daan

Media Propaganda Strikes Again
Now that the 2016 Presidential election is fast approaching, most political threats are either already in jail for alleged corruption charges or in the process of giving them a hard time and ruining their reputation – which is the same media propaganda strategy that Ninoy Aquino used against Ferdinand Marcos in the past. The following are some examples:

Chief Justice Renato Corona
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
Senator Bong Revilla
Senator Jinggoy Estrada
Vice President Jejomar Binay
Mayor Junjun Binay 

Makati Chaos Can Slow Down Economy
The continued attack by the Liberal party of President Ninoy against the Binays has a huge impact in the Philippine economy. Makati being the center of commerce in the Philippines has lost huge turnovers in a daily basis. Businesses either interrupted or disrupted by the chaotic situation claims to have suffer substantial losses as interviewed by CNN Philippines.
Special Treatment
The absence of the Binays in the public service arena is a great loss to the general public because only this family has a proven track record in improving the lives of their constituents through quality service facilities like well equipped schools, better healthcare, supported livelihood and other social benefits. This is the only area in the Philippines where public services are quick and efficient.
Liberal Magnanakaw

Public Service Betrayal
It is very clear that the Pnoy administration is only interested in safeguarding their Liberal political party – that’s why they wanted Kid Pena to govern Makati who is the Vice Mayor than Mayor Binay. Also, as a President who is noted not to have an economic skill, he would not care less if the Philippine economy slows down with the deteriorating income from the central commercial district. There are just too many betrayal incidents done by the ruling President from the Sabah incident to the Makati interference.

So what should the public do?

Let’s topple the Liberal Regime by to electing Vice President Jejomar Binay as our unifying president during the 2016 Presidential election! Never let media propaganda ruin our lives this time.
Binay's Promise
