Decrypted Images Revive Robredo’s Removal other than Marcos’ Election Protest

By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos said that his camp filed a Strong Manifestation with Motion regarding the use of decrypted ballot images in lieu of the original paper ballots for his election protest in numerous clustered precincts. He said that the decrypted ballot images “have been compromised.” This is in line with Atty. Glenn Chong’s revelations at the Senate. However, the strong force of the opposition is still felt in the Congress, Senate, and the Supreme Court. So, the outcome of Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo is uncertain. Speculations have it that since the new Senate President, Tito Sotto and the newly elected House Speaker, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is pro-Marcos, the line of succession is secured by the administration. That’s where Sol-Gen Jose Calida can come in – just like in the case of former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to perhaps remove Robredo from the second top position of the land.

Robredo’s Opposition

Romulo Macalintal, the lead counsel of Robredo is asking the PET to comment on Marcos’ opposition. Marcos is opposing the use of the decrypted ballot images for the electoral recount. He stands that the images have been compromised. Robredo’s camp is now appealing to the PET to junk Marcos’  opposition.




Marco’s Strong Manifestation

First of all, the integrity of the decrypted ballot images is uncertain. Hence, Marcos’ camp is filing a Strong Manifestation against the use of the decrypted ballot images. The former senator believes that the images have been compromised. Therefore, he is asking the PET to hold the use of these images at least until the issue on its integrity is resolved.

Macalintal’s Argument on the Election Protest

Macalintal argues against Marcos pronouncements of the compromised ballot images. He says that Marcos’ camp has yet to present evidence to support his pronouncements. Atty. Chong disputes this and insists that IT professionals know the real score of the digital fraud as presented.









Compromised SD Cards

There are 26 SD cards, and an initial determination made three months ago suspect them to have the data. However, half of the SD cards suddenly turned up blank. Furthermore, Chong reveals that one of the SD cards, with Serial No. BUF0631 have been tampered with. This discovery of the Data in the SD cards serves as a proof of fraud, Marcos’ lawyer Vic Rodriquez says. The Comelec has also shown incompetence on how Smartmatic’s system is working, Edmund Casino, an IT expert says. The ballots are supposed to have oblongs in them but the images show squares. As the images are supposed to be an exact replica of the ballots this shows that they are fake.




Solicitor General Jose Calida’s Power

Solicitor General Jose Calida has served a key role in ousting CJ Sereno. Calida urged the Supreme Court to uphold its decision to oust former Chief Justice Sereno. This despite Sereno’s accusation of forum shopping and insistence that she is a person of proven integrity. The SC needed to settle the legal controversy, however, and the SC rules in favor of Calida’s petition. Now Calida is leaving it to the Comelec. He is doing so in order to defend it on the ongoing electoral protest. Consequently, he has filed a manifestation that backs the 50% ballot shading threshold. This favors the interest of Marcos’ camp. His Quo Warranto strategy is also an alternative to remove Robredo from office.

Bongbong Marcos is Stunned by the Supreme Court Associate Justice Caguioa’s Declaration

supreme court





By: Elena Grace Flores

The Supreme Court or the PET denies the urgent motion to investigate the unethical outing of the PET revisors with VP Robredo’s representative. It said that the tribunal already looked into it and concluded its probe into the party. This statement from the PET confirms Vice President Robredo’s announcement that the PET had already investigated into the questioned swimming party. Bongbong Marcos is stunned why only Robredo knew about the said declaration. Not even the media knew about its verdict.

Bongbong Marcos is Stunned

Marcos questions the propriety of the presence of Robredo’s revisor Osmundo Abuyuan in the outing. He said in his plea that to fraternize with a revisor was prohibited by the PET or the election tribunal of the Supreme Court. It is prescribed in the Code of Conduct for Court Personnel and the Canon of Judicial Ethics. In a resolution dated July 10, 2018, the PET denies Marcos’ motion. It justifies its answer by saying that the investigation is already done. Erwin Tulfo reacts by saying why there’s no update to the public on this regard.




Caguioa‘s Role

Marcos enumerates some of the orders issued by the Supreme Court Associate Justice Caguioa which show his one-sidedness especially when it comes to penalties or fees. Almost all of his rulings are in Robredo’s favor. Nevertheless, Marcos makes it a point to comply and respect its decisions but cannot contain its unfairness.

The PET’s Declaration

The PET, in the same resolution, also orders the Commission on Elections to file its own comment on Robredo’s motion. It urges for the use of the 25 percent ballot shading threshold in the recount. The Office of the Solicitor General, who represents the government in court cases, disagrees with the position of the COMELEC on the issue and sided with Marcos. The OSG urges the PET to junk Robredo’s appeal and upholds its resolution. SolGen Jose Calida said that valid votes are those with at least 50 percent shading.









Robredo’s Camp Updated with the PET

Robredo said that “A [CCTV] footage confirms that Mr. Miranda, Marcos’ revisor leaves the bag of snacks on the fourth floor of the building for the swimming event.” Although she fails to specify which building. “The revisors of protestant Marcos were also invited to the said outing. In fact, prior thereto, no less than one of the supervisors of protestant Marcos, Mr. Roderick Miranda, sent some snacks for the proposed outing,” she added. Robredo slams Marcos for urging the PET to investigate the outing. She stresses that a probe has already been conducted where “some of the personalities involved were already meted with penalties.”




The challenge to Show Proof to the Supreme Court

Lawyer Vic Rodriguez, a spokesperson of Marcos challenges Robredo’s camp to produce an “authentic” CCTV footage.  “We challenge Mrs. Leni Robredo to go ahead and produce such footage provided it is authentic and not another product of her many lies,” he said. “We have shown pictures of how she has corrupted PET head revisors and pictures don’t lie. To date, all she has are alibis and more lies. She’s already caught and yet she is still making excuses,” he added.

SONA Sideline: CGMA Takes Over as House Speaker while SolGen Calida Grills Robredo

SONA





By: Elena Grace Flores

The supermajority in the Congress votes for CGMA  as the new speaker of the house replacing Cong. Pantaleon Alvarez. This happens before and after the SONA of Philippine President Rodrigo Du30. The power struggle is not only evident in the lower house but also in all branches of the government. It is a puzzle to many that conflicts arise even among the supporters of Du30. However, a certain pattern is obvious. The pro-Marcos stalwarts in the current administration are at work. Take the case of SolGen Jose Calida’s stunt against the 25% notion of Vice President Leni Robredo which is favorable to Bongbong Marcos.

[VIDEO]:  Sa ikatlong pagkakataon mula noong siya’y naupo sa puwesto, nagbigay ng kaniyang State of the Nation Address si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte kanina. Pero tila naagawan ito ng atensyon ng biglaan at bulagaang pagpapatalsik kay Pantaleon Alvarez bilang Speaker of the House. Ang ipinalit sa kaniya, walang iba kundi ang dating Presidente Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Gayunman, si Alvarez pa rin ang nakaupo sa likuran ng pangulo habang ibinigay nito ang kaniyang SONA.




Coup d’etat at the SONA

Former President and now Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo vows to push for the legislative agenda of the Du30 administration in the House of Representatives after she was elected overall head of the chamber. “I am extremely honored to have been supported by my colleagues at the House of Representatives to be their new Speaker,” said Arroyo in a short statement. “I will endeavor to carry out the legislative agenda of President Rodrigo Duterte in the Lower House,” she said.




Dramatic Takeover

The SONA row was the culmination of months of speculation about a possible plan to oust Alvarez. Arroyo’s takeover took place in a muted affair. The audio was unceremoniously cut just when Deputy Speaker Rolando Andaya announced around 3:30 p.m. that a majority of the House, 161, had voted for the leadership change.

Alvarez’s Vested Interests

The ousted speaker becomes unpopular because of his firm stand in various issues. He even has a rift with the Presidential daughter after he calls her an opposition. Aside from being the line of succession for the VP post,  he is also a possible contender for Prime Minister if the Federalism change pushes through. These are taken by the loyalists as vested interests thus explaining his disagreement over the President’s alliance with the Marcoses. Cong. Alvarez earlier flaunts also his affair despite remaining legally married to his wife.









SolGen Calida as the President’s Implementor

Solicitor General Jose Calida is instrumental in the ouster of Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. He apparently leaves the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to defend itself in the ongoing vice presidential electoral protest. Though he files a manifestation backing the 50% ballot shading threshold that favors the interest of former senator Bongbong Marcos. The Office of the Solicitor General urges the Presidential Electoral Tribunal to junk Vice President Leni Robredo’s appeal to apply the 25 percent threshold. This is to determine the validity of votes in the ongoing vice presidential election recount.




The SolGen’s Legal Basis

The OSG said that in vice presidential elections, it is the PET that has “the sole authority to judge all contests” and the Comelec has no jurisdiction over the case. Calida cited Section 4, Article VII of the Constitution that provides that the PET has exclusive jurisdiction over election contests relating to the president or vice president. Vice President Leni Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal says Solicitor General Jose Calida’s ‘erroneous’ support of the 50% shading threshold would ‘erode the very foundation of our democracy’ by disenfranchising voters. They are questioning why Calida is siding Marcos.

Bongbong Marcos’ Response to President Du30’s Plea for Transitory Election

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The opposition earlier expressed its fear that the Philippine President Rodrigo Du30 asks for a transitory election to extend his term. Presidential spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque disputes this by explaining that the leader even wants to cut 3 years of his term to allow the people to vote for their next head of state. Former Chief Justice Hilario Davide floats his fear that Du30 will run again with Bongbong Marcos as the Vice President. The tandem could easily win, he said. However, Marcos hints that the President is indeed true to his word that he is not into term extension. In fact, the former Senator already confirms with the media. He intends to run as President in the next election – may it be in 2019 or 2022.

Eyeing for the Presidency

The namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos eyes to become the next president of the Philippines. The former senator said this in a media interview.  He aspires to gain the highest position in Philippine politics. However, the presidency is not something that he wakes up in the morning and plans on it,’ he added. His return to Malacañang is the hope for the majority of Du30-Marcos supporters. So, if Du30 is not running, they can also do the reverse: Marcos-Du30 with Inday Sara as the running mate for VP.

Capitalizing on Du30’s High Approval Rate

Davide’s fear is real. The Du30-Marcos tandem or vice versa can surely win the national election. This is because of the high approval rating of the President despite the massive destabilization efforts of his detractors. When both Marcos and Du30 loyalists merge, they certainly generate majority votes.









The Opposition’s Near Demise

The opposition’s near demise is now felt by their conspirators. Aside from having an unpopular head of their party elected in the executive office in the person of Leni Robredo, their forces in the other branches also dwindled. The removal of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno is a demonstration of Sol. Gen. Jose Calida’s great influence. The pro and anti-Marcos senators and congressmen are still battling many issues. One thing is certain though, that the Marcos-Du30 alliance has the number to make this strategy a reality hopefully soon.

Bongbong Marcos Learns from Father: Stop Demonizing Du30 with Debts and Look at the Actual Infrastructure Investment Record

Debts





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos remembers how the opposition demonizes his father during his previous visit at the Malacañan Palace. The late President Ferdinand E. Marcos was accused of being the man that he never was, according to his son. They are doing the same thing with President Rodrigo Du30. Most commercial media speculates about the ballooning of the country’s debts, selling bonds to China and borrowing allegedly large sums of money from them. The President’s proposed budget for next year is 3.77 trillion pesos including the “Build Build Build” infrastructure projects. He admits that there are lots of offers for foreign loans but so far, the Asian Development Bank spearheads the investment side of the development. In actuality, the World Bank reserves would be more than enough to fund all the developments in the country.

Investments are Not Debts

President Du30 witnesses the signing of an estimated $9.5 billion worth of investment agreements with Chinese businessmen. This could generate some 10,800 jobs for Filipinos. He appreciates the investment pledges as a sign of the “vigorous momentum” of Philippines-China ties. Then stresses the importance of further developing economic cooperation with China. The Philippines focuses on agriculture, fisheries, infrastructure and public works, energy, trade, as well as e-commerce, industrial park development, MSMEs (medium, small and micro enterprises), processing, manufacturing and tourism. The Chinese investments in these areas are mere business deals and not loans.




Chinese Confidence in Trade

Trade Undersecretary Rowel Barba confirms the increasing Chinese confidence in the Philippine economy and their belief that the country could sustain its 6.7-percent economic growth for the next five years. In fact, the number of Chinese businessmen formalizing their interest to invest in the Philippines increases. A delegation visits the country to explore other businesses. This is taken by the detractors as China’s invasion of the country.

Reclamation and Not the MRT for the Chinese Investors

The biggest investment plan in the Philippines comes from the Shangai GeoHarbour Group. It earmarks the $3.46 billion for land reclamation, sludge remediation, and land development. They only won the bidding for the Manila-Clark MRT’s construction supply like cement because Japan cannot beat their competitive prices.









Demonizing Du30 to Stop Marcos

It is clear that the infrastructure of the opposition that destroyed the reputation of former President Marcos is out to malign the current President who favors his son. This time, the likely heir to the presidential throne is more than ready to counteract those fake news against him and his allies. There are also battles detected in the major branches of government. Sol. Gen. Jose Calida pushes the Supreme Court to honor their 40% own ruling for the vote shades. Interpolations are also ongoing between pro and anti-Marcos solons for his victory as VP in the 2016 elections. Congressman Lito Atienza fights for Marcos’ side in the Congress.
