Former vice president Jejomar Binay Sr. and his son, “JunJun” are not surprised when Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, an Aquino appointee filed criminal charges of graft and falsification of public documents charges against them. This is for the allegedly anomalous procurement in the construction of the P1.3-billion Makati Science High School Building.

[VIDEO]: We find the strangest bed fellows in Philippine politics. This report tells us about the curious case of Gringo Honasan and Jojo Binay.
Cases Filed by the Ombudsman
Morales confirmed her order to file criminal charges against the Binays for allegedly conspiring to rig the procurement of the 10-storey science high school building on Kalayaan Avenue in Makati. The younger Binay was ordered charged with four counts of violation of Section 3(e) of the anti-graft law, and three counts of Falsification.
Witch Hunt against the Binays
Binay’s spokesperson Joey Salgado said the Binays’ indictment came as no surprise. He accused the Ombudsman of launching a “witch hunt against them. This is just to continue the election campaign of the Ombudsman as a “tool” of the Liberal Party. She just intends to politically persecute the enemies of her party including the current President. It is noted that Morales and Du30 are now having a war of words.
Prior to the 2016 election, there was a confusion why Senator Gringo Honasan chose to run as Vice President with Binay as his Presidential candidate. Meanwhile, Honasan’s ally Senator Juan Ponce Enrile endorsed Bongbong Marcos as VP. It even got more complicated when the Binay-Honasan tandem promoted Marcos despite Honasan’s running for the same position. Now, it is evident that their common goal is to support the return of Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake.
Bongbong Marcos’ Evidence in the Electoral Protest
Relevant evidence gathered by the Marcos camp to support his electoral protest against Leni Robredo was from the Binay Camp through its initiator Pastor Boy Saycon. It is remembered that Saycon accompanied whistle blowers of the alleged digital fiasco of Smartmatic that implicates the Comelec into its connivance with the alleged election fraud in a Senate hearing.
Bongbong Marcos is confident that the President has shown one singular quality that is very clear as he refers to the leader’s recent SONA. It is the reason why he is very popular. His quality of leadership can’t be discredited. The Filipino people recognize that. Only a good leader can do and manage that. Filipinos know the truth from his genuine side versus his detractors’ propaganda.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos’ views on democracy, governance and not judging anyone during the Vice Presidential campaign.
The Voice of the People is the Voice of God
Like his father, Marcos is a real democracy crusader. No matter how sensitive the issues are like same-sex marriage, he keeps an open mind. He believes that the voice of the people is the voice of God. No one should judge and be judged.
How to Improve People’s Lives
Marcos said that relocation is not just moving people. It’s about building a community with proper provisions and opportunities for the people to live a decent life. Livelihood, transport system, hospitals, schools, and other fundamental government services must be prioritized to support the citizens’ progress.
Comment on the President’s SONA
Marcos thinks that the President has shown good leadership both in our local and foreign policies. He has redirected our foreign policy and that is the reason why we have regained once again a crucial and important position in the international community to the benefit of the Philippines. It is the same with various domestic policies, he added.
Marcos Regime’s Effect in his Bid
He ran for the Vice Presidency for a simple reason that he wants to address people’s needs first and foremost. The principles of his father for public service is hereby inherited. There are no traces of negativities in him with regards to the Marcos regime. In fact, he takes it an opportunity for the people to thank his late father. He said that since most people were not able to thank former President Ferdinand Marcos, they can show their gratitude to him by supporting his bid to the executive office.
The Liberal Party members should realize now that getting rid of former Vice President Jejomar Binay that leads to the victory of President Du30 is now their greatest nightmare in blocking the leadership of Bongbong Marcos who is his father’s (Ferdinand Marcos) namesake. Aside from his bravery, the people are behind him.

[VIDEO]: The President says former president Ferdinand Marcos’ declaration of martial law was ‘very good.’ This is in response to a question seeking to clarify Du30’s earlier statement, where he said that his declaration of martial law would be similar to Marcos’ time.
The President’s Support
The end-year extension of martial law in Mindanao reflects his huge political support. 94 percent of the 259 members of the House of Representatives voted for it. It might be not because they believed it would be good for the country, but because they trusted Du30. It’s him who told them that it would protect the people. Only 14 were against it, members of the party-list parties that are fronts of the Communist Party.
The President’s 78 percent “satisfaction” (net +66), according to the Social Weather Station survey, is the highest since Aquino, for a President in his or her first year of office. Pulse Asia’s “approval” rating was higher, at 84 percent. These are indications of his utmost popularity.
Effect of Black Media Propaganda
The black media propaganda that lasts more than a decade against the Marcoses cannot convince 100% of Filipinos to embrace the possible presidential bid of Bongbong Marcos in the future. However, people from the golden age themselves will not keep quiet about it. They will continue the battle for the truth through the social media.
The Fall of Robredo
Robredo, who ran for the Vice Presidency just to block Bongbong Marcos from the executive office is now bound to fail. Aside from the ongoing election protest against her, there’s also a possibility that she will be impeached. She keeps a low profile now in criticizing both the President and Marcos. But the Marcos loyalists are always on guard whenever she opens her mouth to discredit both.
The second SONA of the President is almost here. His detractors fear that he might declare a nationwide martial law after the Congress approved his request to extend it in Mindanao until the end of the year. Du30 floats the idea of imposing Martial Law across the country to keep the law and order and thwart any further terroristic activity in his speeches. Can he do that during his State of the Nation Address?

[VIDEO]: It is now up to President Rodrigo Duterte’s “wisdom and integrity” to put limits on the imposition of martial law in Mindanao after the Supreme Court upheld the legality of the May 23 declaration, a constitutionalist said Wednesday.
To Extend to the Visayas
“I may decide to expand the area to include the Visayas because it is just a walking distance actually. And because of the many islands, they can always escape there and begin another terroristic activity,” Duterte said this upon arrival from Russia.
“I have ordered the military to embargo the islands. These are the ones at sea that separate Mindanao from the Visayas,” he said. The President also hinted that he would likely include Luzon to be under the Martial Law.
Nationwide Martial Law
“If ISIS also takes a foothold in Luzon, I might declare martial law nationwide to protect the people,” he said. “The Constitution grants him the prerogative whether to put the entire Philippines under martial law. This can also be any part thereof. There is no constitutional edict that martial law should be confined only to the particular place the conflict transpired,” the Supreme Court said read by Associate Justice Mariano del Castillo.
Law-Abiding Citizens Need Not Worry
“Remember that this is not intended for the law-abiding citizens. We are the least of your worry. But if you confront government and my orders are one: to enforce the law. And anyone caught possessing a gun and confronting us with violence, my orders are shoot to kill,” the chief executive warned. The President’s plan is supported by his chosen successor, Bongbong Marcos who is the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. He led the nation to prosperity under the martial rule but destroyed by his critics through black media propaganda.
Right after the preliminary conference of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo, she again revived her Motion for Reconsideration Pro Tanto. Pro Tanto is a Latin word that means “to such an extent.” She asks PET once again to dismiss Marcos’ recount bid for his alleged failure to “specify in detail the electoral frauds and irregularities. However, Robredo’s repeated delaying action does not attract the mainstream media anymore. The Prayers of the avid Marcos loyalists at the Supreme Court grounds are indeed working.

[VIDEO]: Nakiisa ang former senator at dating vice presidential candidate sa overnight vigil. Bukas magsisimula ang preliminary conference ng electoral protest ni Marcos laban kay VP Robredo.
Pro Tanto Status
Marcos received Robredo’s Motion asking the PET to allow her to file a supplement to her Motion for Reconsideration Pro Tanto that she originally filed last 24 February 2017. In her Supplement, Robredo once again asked the PET to dismiss his election protest for his failure to “specify in detail the electoral frauds and irregularities that were committed during the last elections”.
Supporters of the namesake of Ferdinand Marcos were outside the Supreme Court prior to the preliminary conference. It was set in motion last July 11. They pray, share inspirational talks and sing songs of praise. Bongbong Marcos even thanked them all in person later that night. Then he showed up fresh the next day while Robredo missed it.
Vigil for the Truth
Some people cannot understand why Marcos’ supporters opt to hold a prayer vigil instead of a rally for the truth to come out. They urged the Supreme Court to order a recount of votes for Marcos and Vice President Leni Robredo in the May 9 elections. In response, the SC announced that the recount is prioritized and the digital election fraud issue is to follow only. This irked Robredo’s camp badly.
Pro Tanto becomes La Tonta
Despite gaining from the recent Pulse Asia Survey, Robredo remains unappreciated, naive and somewhat clumsy Vice President. Just like the Spanish character that depicts the same nature. Never under estimate the power of prayer. It simply works.
