Gov. Imee Marcos who runs for Senator joins the ribbon cutting of Consumer’s Welfare Week 2018 at the Makati City Hall. She hails the leadership of Mayor Abby Binay and her Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo. Marcos explains that there’s not much difference in managing a progressive commercial district compared to being a governor in a small province in terms of public service. However, it is obvious that the city has more funds and her territory only has a larger area. She also jokes about the Yabuts, the good and the bad.

Inflation Treatment

Gov. Marcos prides herself in initiating or bringing back the Kadiwa system that allows direct trade from the producers themselves to the direct consumers. This eliminates the added costs of the agents in between thus lowering the costs of the basic commodities. She wishes to distribute their processed meats to the city hoping that the buyers can also benefit from the affordable prices.


Local Trade

Since her province, Ilocos Norte is a producer of vegetables and other crops, she aims to have trade relations with Makati for these raw products in a major way. Makati is no doubt the commercial district of the Philippines and a model for a successful city, she said. It would be a boost for her products to be directly distributed to this highly developed urban area.


Alliance with the Du30s

It is widely known that Marcos forges an alliance with the Hugpong political party of the President’s daughter, Davao Mayor Sara Du30. She also defends the Filipino leader by saying that there was no such thing as militarization under the Duterte administration. She points out that the military officials appointed in various government positions were no longer in active military service.



Friendship with the Binays

It was also in the news that Gov. Marcos met with Senator Nancy Binay to thank the latter for filing a resolution for the Senate’s electoral fraud investigation during the 2016 elections. The revelations during such hearings put Bongbong Marcos in a good light. Now, she shows support to the incumbent mayor of Makati. This is despite the Binay siblings’ rivalry in the mayoral position in 2019. The situation is not really surprising because of the fact that even the Binay patriarch, former Vice President Jojo Binay is not worried about it. Eventually, one of his children would surely be elected regardless.

Uniting Political Parties as Senator Bet

Earlier, Mayor Abby Binay said during a forum at Malate, Manila, answering questions whether UNA will form an alliance with Mayor Du30’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP). “Historically if you look at my dad, he is always not aligned particularly with ruling parties,” she added. Nevertheless, as a supporter of Hugpong, Gov. Marcos, can definitely bridge the cooperation of the two parties by simply being friendly and cooperative with both. After all, they are only against the yellow-minded stalwarts.

President Du30’s Strong Alliance Triumphs Over the Libelous Opposition Senator Trillanes

Senator





By: Elena Grace Flores

The police collect Senator Antonio Trillanes IV from the Senate and he has gone through the booking procedure already. This is after the Makati City Regional Trial Court Branch orders his arrest for the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege. Trillanes is facing a case for rebellion before Branch 150 Judge Elmo Alameda. The RTC allows a temporary freedom for the Senator after paying the Php 200,000 bail.  However, if the warrant for the Coup d’Etat from branch 148 comes out for the Oakwood mutiny, it is not anymore bailable under the court-martial. The former President Benigno Aquino III granted him amnesty without the proper documentation.

Arrest Warrant Ordered from Branch 150

A Makati court recently orders the arrest of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. This is weeks after President Rodrigo Du30 voided his amnesty for his non-compliance to his amnesty’s conditions. It revives charges against him for the unsuccessful uprisings in 2003 and 2007.  The Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 150, handles the rebellion case against Trillanes over the 2007 Manila Peninsula siege. Whereas, the branch 148 has the jurisdiction over Trillanes on the non-bailable Coup d’Etat case. It issued the arrest warrant 21 days after the issuance of the President’s Proclamation 572 that made the Navy officer’s 2011 amnesty void.



Hold Departure Order Against the Senator

The court, in a 2-page order by Judge Elmo Alameda, also bans the Senator from leaving the country without its permission. It sets bail at P200,000 for Trillanes’ temporary liberty. Police officers and court sheriff, Bong Carreon delivers the resolution to the Senate, where Trillanes seeks refuge since September 4. At the time of writing, the noisy lawmaker has paid his bail and now back at the Senate.

Revoked Amnesty

Early this month, the President issued Proclamation 572 that revokes the amnesty given to Trillanes for being void ab initio or void from the beginning. Proclamation 572 says Trillanes failed to submit an application form. Meaning, he did not admit his guilt in the crimes covered by the amnesty which is a requirement of the Presidential provision.



The DOJ’s Hand

With the amnesty revocation, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed an ex-parte motion seeking a warrant of arrest and a hold departure order against Trillanes. The DOJ also asked the court to resume the trial with the prosecution presenting its evidence. It said that with the amnesty declared as void from the beginning, the dismissal of the case is also void. Therefore, the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo is wrong when she said that the cases against him were already dismissed. This is because they can be reactivated once the amnesty is deemed unexistent.




The Court’s Decision Shows the Restoration of Democracy

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque stated that: “The court has spoken. As the President has said, we will respect the decision of the judiciary.” It is but natural for the opposition to use this incident for the benefit of their intentions. They again stressed that the administration’s actions are undemocratic. Contradictory to that, most Filipinos feel that democracy is actually restored. The lengthy process of his possible detention clearly follows the rule of law. Former Vice President Jojo Binay, Former Davao Vice Mayor Paolo Du30, Senators Richard Gordon, Manny Pacquiao, Migz Zubiri, and many other pro-administration stalwarts now start to see the fall of the most irritating detractor.

Jojo Binay Retains Alliance with Bongbong Marcos as he Runs for the Congress

Congress





By: Elena Grace Flores

Former VP Jejomar or better known as Jojo Binay has his eyes set for Congress in the 2019 elections. Joey Salgado, Binay’s spokesperson confirms this on Monday, September 24.  His daughter, Mayor Abby Binay is also going to run with him under the United Nationalist Alliance for the same position. Another daughter, Senator Nancy Binay is the president of UNA with the family patriarch serves as its chairperson. The latter’s comment on former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile’s revelation to Bongbong Marcos is used to malign the ongoing Binay-Marcos alliance by the mainstream media. Enrile earlier said that there were no arrests made due to political beliefs during the martial law regime. The eldest of the Binay siblings stresses that the differences of perspectives are simply situational.

Rags to Riches Story is Still Hot in the Congress

With Binay’s rags-to-riches story, he garnered lots of support and made it as vice president in 2010. He then aimed higher but unfortunately lost as a presidential candidate. He finished 4th with 5,318,249 votes.



Reelectionist for Mayor

Consequently, Abigail Binay takes up after his father as Makati City Mayor. Furthermore, she also says that she will run for reelection in 2019. This was publicized as early as August of 2018. Michael Camina as Makati City Government Spokesperson also confirms this.

Kid Peña Tries his Luck Again

Former Vice Mayor Romulo “Kid” Peña is likely to be Abby’s opponent again according to Salgado. Consequently, Peña seems to be already going around the district before the official campaign period, as shown on his Facebook profile.



Binay Supports Bongbong Marcos

In the 2016 elections, UNA initially offered Bongbong Marcos the slot for vice president. Despite coming from different political parties, Binay is in an alliance with Marcos. He justifies this alliance by saying that Bongbong is not his father. Furthermore, both Abby and Bongbong were endorsees of the INC.




Controversial Alliance

The alliance of Binay and Marcos is controversial because of the political history of the two parties. Binay was even imprisoned during Martial Law as a former human rights lawyer. Furthermore, Binay was also one of the closest allies of Cory Aquino and challenged the alleged dictatorship of Marcos with her. According to political analysts, the Binay-Marcos alliance can strengthen the force against the government’s opposition in the Congress. This is why the yellow media is exerting efforts in misleading the public using Senator Binay’s comment.

Binay Inspired Free Access Community Health Network

Access Community Health Network







welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Never mind those who are into the character assassination of former Vice President Jejomar Binay, they do not understand that it takes more than money to build a community like Makati.  The Jojo Binay Free Access Community Network is definitely a model for the public services nationwide.





[VIDEO]: See how Jojo Binay’s Community Outreach Inspiration goes on today under the leadership of Mayor Abby Binay. They are carried out by area leaders of Makati from sports to caravans



Enabling local Leaders

Teamwork counts in making the city more progressive. This is in the sense that the local government is making sure that healthcare, livelihood, social and educational needs plus basic humanitarian assistance are provided for. Free in lieu of the people’s taxes. Local leaders have a free hand in nurturing their constituents following of course Jojo Binay’s inspiration.  This also empowers the citizens of Makati to extend help to relatives and friends elsewhere since their basic needs are taken cared of. Surely the kind of public services with a heart and compassion.



Random Checks by the Mayor

Mayor Abby Binay surprises senior citizens confined at the Ospital ng Makati recently. The hospital visit is part of a series of activities jointly organized by the Elderly Welfare Section of the Makati Social Welfare (MSWD) and Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) in celebration of the Elderly Filipino Week.



Kindness Beyond Duty

Mayor Abby Binay gives Venice Nina Sosa, an eight-year-old bone cancer patient, a new laptop during the latter’s visit to the City Hall. The Mayor gave the laptop to Sosa as a gift, after the cancer patient expressed her wish to own one. The girl, a resident of Barangay Olympia, was spotted by former Vice President Jejomar Binay in one of his wake visits. On learning of Venice’s condition, he promised to extend medical assistance to her.



Makati multi-service caravan

The city has institutionalized the caravan to bring city government services directly to the residents of Makati. “We encourage our residents to come when the caravan is in their barangay to enjoy a variety of free services without having to go to City Hall.  Scheduled twice in a month, the caravan is a one-stop-shop offering a wide range of services for free from various frontline City Hall offices, together with the JCBinay Foundation and other partner-NGOs.




Mobile Services Offered via the caravan

Free services offered include medical, dental and eye check-ups, blood sugar screening, x-ray, ECG, medicines, legal advice and services, processing of birth certificates and similar documents. A feeding program is also held for undernourished children, while free massage and hair cutting services are also made available. Pet owners can also bring their dogs and cats for free anti-rabies vaccination.



Further Improvements of the Binay’s Free Access Community Health Network

The city government of Makati has extended the period of validity of the Yellow Card for residents from one year to three years effective October 10, and introduced innovations designed to streamline processes in seeking medical services at the city-run Ospital ng Makati (OsMak). When you are sick, broke and nowhere else to go, think if your local government and the community have something like the Binay’s Free Access Community Health Network.
