Bongbong Marcos reacts an hour after the news breaks that President Rodrigo Du30 withdraws the country’s membership from the ICC. The former Senator said that it is just right for the Filipino leader to defend the dignity of Filipinos after the international body’s unlogical criticisms and dictates to the President without full knowledge of the situations. The ICC must treat the Philippines as a mature sovereign nation, Marcos said. They should not judge us because we do not judge them, he added.

Avalanche of Withdrawals

The President’s spokesman, Atty. Harry Roque believes the Philippines’ withdrawal from the International Criminal Court is “the beginning of the end” for the court, as it will start an avalanche of withdrawal of other countries. The ICC violated its “complementarity” rule when it began its initial examination into the complaint against President Rodrigo Du30 in relation to the administration’s war on drugs.

Out of ICC’s Jurisdiction

Roque, who specializes in international law, stresses that the ICC, under its complementarity principle, can only exercise jurisdiction when domestic courts are unwilling or unable to do their work. This is not the case in the Philippines. The spokesman said he already brought the issue up before the ICC several times but he was ignored.

Major Powers are NOT Members

Roque points out that major powers such as the United States, Russia, and China are not even members. He is a former co-chairperson of the Philippine Coalition for the International Criminal Court. He was grateful to President Benigno Aquino III for the Philippines’ membership in 2011 but understands Du30’s point now. President Du30 decides to withdraw the Philippines’ ratification of a United Nations treaty that created the body. By withdrawing, the Philippines expects that it no longer has jurisdiction over the nation.

Anti and Pro-Administration

Marcos who is a staunch ally of the President hails his pulling out from the ICC. However, Senator Leila De Lima calls Du30 a coward for doing so. The people can very well see the kind of leaders and politicians from this incident.

Vice President

Rumors of government destabilization loom as the Vice Presidential electoral protest recount nears. However, in reality, the networks behind the anti-administration stunts cannot overpower their opposition that is presently in authority. Therefore, logical minds have the guts to express their true sentiments and support. This is evident in Bonondo during the Chinese New Year celebration. The emcee calls on Bongbong Marcos as the next Vice President of the Philippines.

New Vice President in Baguio

Bongbong and Gov. Imee Marcos’ were earlier in the Baguio Flower Festival where their popularity surges as Gov. Imee introduces her brother as the Vice President of the Philippines. Some can’t help but raise their eyebrows but again, the Marcoses are in alliance with the current President. No one can stop them from making their stand public.

Side by Side with the Government

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos is on tour nowadays. She is also hot in social media interviews. Pro-administration bloggers back her up. No doubt, she’s preparing for the Senatorial race in 2019. It is not surprising if she runs under the President’s party because of the obvious alliance between them. A press conference even features her side by side with Presidential spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque while they address current national issues. The Marcoses and Du30 are definitely not taking their detractors sitting down.

The Supreme Court Justice’s Plight

Another indication that the pro-administration players are stronger than their enemies is evident in the Supreme Court. All the 13 magistrates are united in asking their Chief Justice Maria Lourdes-Sereno to take an indefinite leave of absence while facing the impeachment trial.

Confidence Behind the Binondo Stunt

Bongbong Marcos explains in his 5th series video that the Chinese community was first recognized during the time of his father. Their undeniable contribution to the economy is never overlooked. This is the reason why the Marcoses still have many supporters from the Filipino-Chinese faction, particularly in Binondo.

Gov. Imee Marcos & Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque on National Issues and Popularity


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos seems to be touring these days. That gives a hint to the press people that she is indeed preparing for the Senatorial race in 2019. She does not dispute that either. It is likely that she will run under the President’s umbrella because of the obvious alliance between them. The latest indication is the recent press conference where she and Presidential spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque answers questions about the current national issues. The Marcoses and the Filipino leader’s popularity remain despite the black media propaganda against them.

Roque Defended the President

Sensitive issues like the Dengvaxia case that hunts the previous administration are thrown at the Presidential spokesperson Roque. He constantly denies ill intention against ex-President Noynoy Aquino. The President is not into jailing previous presidents that came before him. It’s not just his style, Roque added.

Comelec’s Move against ex-Pnoy

The Commission on Elections’ (Comelec) Law Department summons former President Benigno Aquino III and two of his former cabinet members over a complaint of election law violation. This has links to the controversial dengue vaccination program. Aquino, former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, and former Health Secretary Janet Garin have to appear at a preliminary hearing on March 15. The three face a complaint filed by the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption for the implementation of the immunization program on April 4, 2016. This falls within the 45-day election ban on government projects ahead of the May 2016 elections.

Own Supporters Put ex-Pnoy into Trouble

Roque explains the President’s stand on the Comelec’s complaint against ex-Pnoy and others. What can Du30 do if it is ex-Pnoy’s own supporters who can see such problem in the Dengvaxia case? He has to allow the rule of law to run smoothly and fairly, he said.

The Popularity of the Marcoses Never Dies

Mayor Mauricio Domogan tags the appearance of the Marcos siblings during the weekend Panagbenga parades as unfortunate after critics loomed over social media. It turns out that Bongbong and Gov. Imee Marcos were not formally invited. They asked permission to participate even if they do not have to since all Filipinos can join any festivals. However, they were allowed to join with officials of the city and the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation Incorporated. They also engaged the crowd on the parade route. They spoke to the crowd at the Athletic Bowl. Imee introduces Bongbong as the vice president of the Philippines. Perhaps the mayor did not expect that the popular siblings can overpower the crowd.

Filipinos are Ready for a Marcos Comeback after EDSA Fails to Gather 3 to 6,000 Supporters


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that the government has appropriated funds to commemorate the EDSA People Power revolution last February 25. The President has no attempt to diminish the significance of the uprising that toppled the Marcos dictatorship, he added. Dr. Rene Escalante, Chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, however, cannot issue a more accurate estimate between 3 to 6 thousand attendees. Despite this, magnified news reach overseas media using a collection of images or images from small gatherings in different areas. Does the unpopular EDSA signify that the Filipinos are ready to have a Marcos back in the national post? Would it be Gov. Imee for Senator or Bongbong Marcos for Vice President?

The President’s Choice

Du30 skips the 32nd Edsa People Power commemoration and chose to stay in his hometown Davao City. This is the second time the President misses the event. Roque justifies this by saying; “the declaration of February 25 as a national holiday stays,” despite the absence of Duterte in the event.

Essence of EDSA

The 1986 Edsa People Power that topples the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ regime is important in history because it was a  “bloodless” revolution, Malacañang said. This shows the former leader’s sacrifice for the sake of his countrymen. He has the heart not to use the military forces loyal to him to avoid Filipino casualties.

Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest

The recount on March 19 for Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is fast approaching. As this happens, uncertainties arise in many areas. The Supreme Court justices for the first time are ganging up against their Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. They recommend that she take an indefinite leave of absence so as not to influence the proceeding but she insists on staying on. Sereno is an appointee of former President Noynoy Aquino.

Imee Marcos for Senator

Ilocos Norte’s Governor Imee Marcos discloses that the family decides for her to run in the national elections since her brother’s protest can take time. She can very well eye for a Senatorial post. Earlier, Robredo’s Camp hopes that Bongbong Marcos runs for Senator to make the case against the Vice President moot and academic. However, the former Senator clearly stresses that he is pursuing the election protest and will never stop until it is proven how they cheated him.

Wondering about the Netizens’ Reactions on Robredo’s Darkness Speech via Social Media?

Social Media

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Presidential spokesman, Atty. Harry Roque cites Gallup International polls that show the Philippines as the third happiest country in the world. He also shows the Philippines at the fifth highest nation in the economic optimism index. He also stresses the Social Weather Stations surveys indicating that 96 percent welcome the new year with hope and fewer Filipino families consider themselves poor. These facts are contradictory to the statement of Vice President Leni Robredo saying that the country is now in darkness. Netizens fury are evident via Social Media. Here are some from Facebook:
