[VIDEO]: Former First Lady Imelda Marcos celebrates her 86th birthday. Her wish is for her son, Senator Bongbong Marcos, to run for President.
Imelda Marcos’ Dream
Bongbong Marcos sais that it is the dream of his mother, former first lady, and now Ilocos Rep. Imelda Marcos, for him to become president. “Of course, that’s her dream, he confirmed. If she could nominate me for the position of pope, she would,” he said with a smile. That only shows how Imelda is so certain that her son can make a difference for the welfare of his constituents since she also dreams big for the country’s progress.
Cory Aquino’s Fear
Since the 1987 EDSA revolution that toppled Bongbong’s father, the late Ferdinand Marcos – Binay has been the confidante of the that President Cory Aquino. Binay was aware of the forecast of a Chinese fortune teller that the son of Cory will bring chaos to the country. This is why she was hesitant when the idea flows. She made her fear known in her death bed, said Binay. He was also a witness when Cory said; “Let the people suffer – so that they will hate the Marcoses”.
Mothers with the Same Dream
Mothers generally wish for their children’s success. “My mother generally thinks in political terms because that has been her life,” Bongbong said. He added that one cannot prevent a loving mother from pursuing her aspirations for her beloved son. Bongbong confidently confirmed that he shares his mother’s dream for him to become president. This is why he wants to do more for the country. Currently, he just spent P36 million for his electoral protest against Leni Robredo for the Filipinos’ votes to be properly counted – may it be in favor of him or not. It is good enough just to know the truth of who really won in the 2016 Vice Presidential elections.
The Presidency for Bongbong Marcos
“I have seen the presidency from the different side more than the other people have,” Bongbong said. People normally see just the grandeur of it and the power that the president holds. I wish I could do that, but I have also seen the other side of it, and I have a more balanced idea,” he disclosed. He also explained that anybody can be president, but not everybody can be a good president. “There is no use being a president if you are not going to be a good one. It’s very hard.”
Pro-administration lawmakers just filed a bill that would put the Solicitor General Calida in charge of the PCGG. It aims to recover the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family. If their bill is signed into law, ant-Marcos activists are worried on the Solicitor General’s judgment. It is not enough that they asked to stop the Php 25,000 pesos pension of former First Lady Imelda Marcos as the widow of a war veteran which is Php 5,oo0, and 20,000 as the widow of a medal of valor recipient.

True Blue Marcos Loyalist
Solicitor General Jose Calida is a true blue Marcos loyalist. He was an avid leader of the Alyansang Duterte-Bongbong or RRD-BBM alliance. He campaigned for the tandem and even expressed his utmost support for both candidates during a media interview in Ilocos Norte.
PCGG under SolGen
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez pushes House Bill Number 5233. Together with Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas, and House justice committee chairperson Reynaldo Umali. It seeks to place the Presidential Commission on Good Government or PCGG under the Office of the Solicitor General. That automatically makes Calida the head of the PCGG that disturbs the anti-Marcos protesters.
The PCGG has so far recovered over P170 billion. The same bill places the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel under Calida’s office and upgrades his rank, benefits, and privileges. So, Calida would be on top of the three departments once the bill is approved. Will he pursue running after the Marcoses or diverts his attention to other politicians who have questionable lifestyles?
These anti-Marcos people are filled with hatred in their heart. They cannot give credit anymore where it’s due. The pension of a deceased military man has nothing to do with any alleged ill-gotten wealth that after more than 30 years, no court could prove it or dismiss the complaints. Since in a democratic country, one is innocent until proven guilty, the heirs of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos must not be treated unfairly. Are they really afraid that Calida will be biased in the Marcoses’ favor or worried that he examines the wealth of the anti-Marcos government officials instead?
Many Marcos loyalists are wondering why Bongbong Marcos is very quiet nowadays. Instead of stressing about the long wait for the electoral protest to have its preliminary conference to be set in motion, why not follow Marcos? Go out and watch a movie! This is when a social activist spotted Bongbong and mother, Imelda with no other that DOJ Secretary, Vitaliano Aguirre.

[VIDEO]: Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II says former president Noynoy Aquino still has a lot of explaining to do over his alleged liability in the Mamasapano clash in January 2015 that killed 67 people.
Spotted at Greenbelt
Gang Badoy of Rock Ed Philippines posted on his Facebook account that the DOJ secretary with Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos, her son 2016 vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos and son-in-law businessman Gregorio “Greggy” Araneta is spotted having a meeting at a restaurant in Greenbelt, Makati recently. Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II asked back; What’s wrong with it?
Mamasapano Documentary Movie
Aguirre said that last Feb 21, he was invited by the Producer to watch the advance showing of the Mamasapano documentary movie: “Fallen not forgotten: The Untold Story of the Gallant SAF 44.” He finds it good and elegantly produced. It shows the gallantry and heroism of our premier police force, Aguirre said. He is not aware that “Greggy” is also there.
Chance Meeting with the Marcoses
Bongbong Marcos who attended the showing with his mother was also invited together with approximately 100 other viewers. The former senator is a principal player during the Senate hearing on the Mamasapano incident. Aguirre is also the counsel for General Getulio Napeñas, former SAF head.
Now as DOJ chief, Aguirre has control over the prosecutors who pursue the criminal charges against members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and private armed groups who engaged the police commandos in the unfortunate operation. Aguirre strongly stresses ex-President Aquino’s liability over the incident. It is also not a secret that Aquino swears to block Bongbong Marcos from the executive office. What the activist is implicating is the possible connivance between the Marcoses and Aguirre.Too bad, the DOJ Secretary is not with the SC.
In response to Nagaleaks’s revelation of the late Jesse Robredo’s extra-marital affair, a mainstream media publishes Dovie Beams-Ferdinand E. Marcos’ sexcapades allegedly taped. Like most men in power, both dead men are not spared with the vice that can ruin the family. Nevertheless, can their sexual stories affect Leni Robredo’s Vice Presidency or can they ruin Bongbong Marcos’ family?

[VIDEO]: This video explains why Dovie Beams organizes a press conference revealing the recordings of her sexcapades with the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos before leaving the Philippines.
Aside from showing off the dead Marcos’ indulgence of the flesh, the article stresses former first lady, Imelda Marcos’ tyranny in trying to know the truth about the affair. Even the word “conjugal dictatorship” is mentioned even if this alleged illicit affair is personal to the Marcos couple. However, it is also evident that despite this very painful incident of a woman’s life, the gracious Imelda Marcos still retain her composure. Just imagine if it happens to just any woman in the Filipino society. Either she cries her heart out, cut his penis off or drag that woman out to where she belongs. This again shows how elegant Imelda Marcos is, in her ways of doing things and reactions. Most of all, in this affair, love is found to be true from both sides despite heavy trials.
The writer is a Marcos critic who claims that Imelda Marcos asks him to stop writing negatively about them. He also said that his father attests how the former first lady out-talks him which is a sign of intelligence. He has some narrations on how they listened to the tapes recorded by Dovie Beams while making love to the late president. Marcos allegedly is aware what Beams did but did not mind because she cannot use them in court, he said. Finally, he reveals that he is the one who gave Imelda Marcos a copy of Beam’s press conferences that Madame Marcos is barged to know by her husband for obvious reasons.
It is interesting that the writer also claims that in 1970 when he investigates about Marcos’ wealth abroad, he had this perception that Aristotle Onassis might be the richest man in the world but Ferdinand E. Marcos is more liquid than Onassis. Filipinos cannot be prouder than that if true. The more they wanted Bongbong Marcos to be president now.
Bongbong Marcos’ family is a role model to many Filipinos. Despite the work responsibilities of the couple, they are hands-on in raising their children up. The wife, Liza Araneta speaks highly of her husband a good father. They show no signs of pains in the past – just lessons learned. Together, they are a big rock that cannot be ruined just by media propaganda.
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said that she and her brother Bongbong Marcos strongly support the President and his war on drugs. She added that if the death penalty is needed in the President’s campaign against the illegal substance then, it is fine with them. However, their mother, former first lady Imelda Marcos is always against the death penalty even during the time of her late husband, former president Ferdinand E. Marcos

[VIDEO]: Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on Wednesday said that her mother, the former first lady now Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos has always been against the death penalty.
Imelda Marcos: No To Death Penalty
Ilocos Norte, 2nd District Congresswoman, Imelda Marcos tells her children that she’ll vote no to the death penalty which she did. She is against the reimposition of the death penalty. This is her stand for a long time, ever since the time of her late husband, former president Ferdinand E. Marcos.
Death Penalty Passes 3rd and Final Reading
The bill seeks to reimpose the death penalty on drug-related offenses is already approved on third and final reading at the House of Representatives. The lower house in a session passed the House Bill 4727 with 217 voting yes, 54 no and one abstention.
A Matter of Principle
Imelda is one of the 54 representatives who voted no. According to Imee Marcos, her father at that time is very obedient to the law. The Death penalty is imposed back then and when the 3 million heroin heist happened, Lim Seng, the drug pusher is executed. Imelda Marcos really objects to that.
Imelda Marcos apparently is against the death penalty because for her, isn’t humane, it isn’t godly. However, the siblings are against drugs, so they hope this curse of drugs will be eliminated if the death penalty is reimposed. They may have differences in opinions but the Marcoses remain intact as a family. This is a good example to the rest of the Filipino families.
