Imee Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

Senatorial hopeful, Serge Osmena said that it’s nothing for him if Imee Marcos runs as senator as well for as long as his sad version of martial law does not happen again. Another candidate for Senator from the opposition, Chel Diokno also admits that the Marcos family maintains a “good measure of popularity.” He thinks that this is due to image-building internet videos, even before the 2010 elections. That made the namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, Bongbong Marcos. won a seat in the Senate, he claims. z

Good Time for Law-Abiding Citizens

Osmena said that he actually does not care if Gov. Marcos runs for Senator or not. It does not make a difference in his bid. He just wants to make sure that the martial la atrocities that he knew won’t happen again. There have been different sides of that story from the alleged victims and the law-abiding citizens. Activists who rebel definitely had the worst days of their lives. This is very different from the rest of the Filipinos who contribute in their own simple way to build a worthwhile community for themselves.

It’s Up to the Filipino People

Osmena is right that it is up to the Filipino people to continue the reforms after a bloodless revolution but they might be fighting for what they do not like when the mainstream media is out there to mislead them. if this is not the case, the main personalities who are involved in the mutiny should not insist that it was just a mutiny and not as many perceive it to be.

A Debate Challenge for Imee Marcos

Another candidate from the opposition rides on the popularity of Imee Marcos. I his campaign sorties, Diokno said that he finds young voters listen intently. “They want to know the truth and they are learning so fast how to discern between fake news and what’s really true,” he said. The Otso Diretso slate challenges their rivals from the administration ticket to a debate recently. “I really wanted to debate with Imee Marcos. We have to thresh out so many issues. Their camp has been saying so many things. The records are there, the facts are there. It’s unfair to revise history,” he said.

Invading Social Media?

Diokno would tap social media and continues to campaign through debates. He refuses what he describes as a “tarp war.” “The Senate is not about making tarpaulins. The Senate is about making laws,” he said. Diokno said the public should care about the anniversary of People Power, even in the face of a resurgent Marcos family. “The freedoms we enjoy would not be here if not for EDSA. Some people forget that,” he said. However, many Filipinos are now aware of the anti-Marcos propaganda that led the country to chaos during the double Aquino regimes.

Riding on to the Marcoses’ Popularity

The Liberal Party members are aware that their existence is dying. Their so-called democracy also died allegedly when President Rodrigo Du30 becomes President. Needless to say, the Marcoses become stronger after 33 years of the so-called Edsa Revolution. When Imee Marcos becomes Senator in 2019, get ready for Bongbong Marcos as President in 2022.

Robredo Uses CHR, Ombudsman to Destroy Bongbong Marcos

Ombudsman





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice President Leni Robredo calls on Filipinos to respect constitutional institutions such as the Office of the Ombudsman. This goes the same to the Commission on Human Rights after criticisms are thrown against these agencies. She asks the people to rally behind these bodies. The VP defends Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales after the President warns her. Robredo’s betrayal to the administration she serves only has one reason – Bongbong Marcos.






Youtube video by; PTV
[VIDEO]: Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo on Thursday urged Filipinos to speak out and be brave amid the “polarization that’s sweeping across our country.”




Robredo’s Pleas

“We need to respect the mandates of these institutions so that they can perform the duties bestowed upon them. This is to keep the government clean and honest,” Robredo said in a statement. “In spite of the issues they face, the strong will of Filipinos (like in EDSA perhaps) is again needed. Let’s all join together in following our constitution and insist on the democratic approaches of the Ombudsman,” she said.



The President’s Warning vs the Ombudsman

Du30 earlier threatened to form a commission that would investigate the alleged anomalies of the Office of the Ombudsman after the anti-graft agency announced that it was launching a fact-finding probe into his rumored wealth announced by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. He dares the Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales and Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to resign with him.



Attacks Against Du30 are for Marcos

The President is ready to step down anytime for as long as the country won’t go back to the rotten management of the Liberal Party. Bongbong Marcos is the only hope for the Philippines to prosper. His electoral protest against Robredo is due for the recount in November this year. The Liberal media propaganda is already in full force from the Senate to the people’s televisions that can destroy the chances of Marcos through Du30. However, it is evident that there are more social media practitioners who are sensibly pro-administration.









Upcoming Recount for Bongbong Marcos’ Protest

The priority recount is expected to be completed in December this year. The Liberal Party barely has two months to block Bongbong Marcos from the Vice Presidency. As this is happening it is obvious that the killings particularly involving minors are rising. Hatred towards the President can be felt as their surviving families blame him for the deaths regardless of who the culprits are. Such incidents are likely to sabotage the campaigns of the administration given the scenario.

Imee Marcos: Yellow Forces Bribe Lawmakers P100-million to Detain her in Congress

Congress





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Gov. Imee Marcos in an exclusive interview that a P100-million fund from the “yellow” forces is at stake for lawmakers. She cites a reliable source who said that once she fails to show up during the July 25 hearing in the Congress, the money will be distributed. The Congress investigates the alleged use of P66.45 million in excise taxes to buy motor vehicles for the farmers under her watch.






Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: Pagkulong sa “Ilocos 6” sa Kamara, tinawag na hostage crisis ni Gov. Imee Marcos



Warning from Lawmakers in Congress

Some lawmakers warn that the governor contempt citation is sure if she will not show up on July 25.  Surigao del Sur Rep. Johnny Pimentel even showed members of the media the detention cell prepared for her




No Freedom for Ilocos 6

The House of Representatives insists on the continued detention of Ilocos 6 for more than two months now. They are the six employees of the provincial government who refuse to discuss the purchase of vehicles according to the wishes of the interrogators. Marcos asks the Supreme Court to intervene in the case by assuming jurisdiction over a petition for habeas corpus pending at the Court of Appeals. However, the justice in charge inhibits from the case and no one wants to replace him so far.




Stolen Documents

The employees were cited in contempt for refusing to answer questions from the Pimentel panel, saying they cannot do so since the queries were based on photocopies of documents used in the procurement of the vehicles. The probe was initiated by Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas, a former ally of the Marcoses. It is rumored that the original documents were stolen by a former janitor loyal to Fariñas from the Capitol.









Liberal Party Strategy

Marcos noted that Fariñas used to be a member of the Liberal Party or LP know as the yellow faction. He just joined the ruling PDP-Laban party when Du30 becomes President. The governor said she sees a wider “conspiracy” not only against her over the allegedly anomalous vehicle purchase but the entire Marcos family. This is more likely because Bongbong Marcos seems to be favored in his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. The LP members are in full gear to discredit any Marcos for fear that another Ferdinand Marcos can become the next President of the Philippines as per Du30’s wishes.

Marcos Heroism Questions Re-emerge to Stop Bongbong’s Election Protest

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Pro-Liberal Party media are very busy releasing old issues about the late Ferdinand E. Marcos’ heroism as a soldier during the war. This is irrelevant because the most admired leader has long been gone. It is the time now for the namesake, Bongbong Marcos to prove that he really won the Vice Presidential election in 2016 through the electoral protest.






Youtube video by; Jazzer musiko
[VIDEO]: Pres. Marcos a real War hero.



Controversy

Liberal media both local and international were adamant in creating stories that would discredit the late President Marcos claims. They presented facts like he can’t beat the Japanese troops at that time because the ratio between Japanese and Filipino soldiers was 20:1. They continued attacking him saying that he was tireless to tell his side of war stories until they were accepted as facts, an international writer said.




Marcos’ Comrades

No matter how the detractors of Marcos try to dispute his heroism, most people still look up to him. This is why there are an ample number of Marcos loyalists pursuing his son’s presidency in the future. Besides, his comrades or fellow soldiers who fought with him during the war did not fail to tell the same stories and support the late President’s claims to their loved ones and retold to every generation.



Liberalism is Worldwide

President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ story is newsworthy everywhere in the world because he was first and foremost the protector of real democracy. Not the politicians who claimed that they were but ended up reprimanding the people’s votes. He fought against communism and terrorism that Liberal Party members keep on justifying to this date. Besides, news about the Marcoses sells regardless of where you are in the world. This is due to the World Bank report that the Philippines can be the richest country because of Marcos’ gold deposits for the welfare of the people.









Election Protest of Bongbong Marcos

It cannot be denied that in most people’s hearts, Bongbong Marcos is the real Vice President of the Philippines. The preliminary conference of his electoral protest against Leni Robredo has just been postponed. It must be in motion on July 11 to set the details of the recount. Filipinos are anxious to at least know the results of the first three areas of disputes just to confirm many speculations in favor of the young Marcos.

Anti-Du30 Worried About the Marcos-like Infrastructure Mortgage to China

mortgage





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Du30’s detractors are on full alert now that their drug war media propaganda is disregarded by international bodies. Now, they turn to the country’s friend since Marcos’ time, China. Liberal Party supporters now pay attention with the mortgage to China after the latter bestowed infrastructure loans to the administration without internal interference.






Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: Pres. Duterte, nagkaroon ng restricted bilateral meeting kasama si Chinese Pres. Xi



Cayetano’s Defense

A pro-LP media recently claimed that in the recent UNHRC universal periodic review for the Philippines, only China out of 47 countries believed Senator Allan Peter Cayetano’s defense on the alleged drug war human rights record. If the rest of the 46 countries did not buy Cayetano’s explanation just because they still urge the government to stop extra-judicial killings, why is EU now in support with the anti-illegal drugs campaign?




Future Mortgage

The president’s economic relation with China is criticized by the anti-Marcos people. They claimed that the friendship is no longer between the president and China. Those who oppose Bongbong Marcos’ return to power are scared that the Philippines now enters a new chapter in foreign relations as it fosters the relationship with its rival over its claims in the West Philippine Sea or the South China Sea. They consider this as mortgaging the country’s future for the second time after the Marcos regime to an economic giant. How can they be worried that China can expand communist imperialism this way when it was the late Noynoy Aquino who tolerated community rebels in the country to help destroy the golden age?




Infrastructure Projects

They criticize the agreements on Chinese infrastructure loans called the “Build, Build, Build.” This is no doubt the driver of the success of the Marcos governance. In fact, the late president highlighted in his. Gold reserves at the world bank can only be used to enhance public service for the welfare of the people. Projects such as infrastructure, education, and health care must be prioritized.









Anti-Marcos Stunt

Why do the anti-Marcos politicians try to block the progress of the people? It is clear by now what former president Ferdinand Marcos said that pro-communist people are the once who deprive its citizens of the right to vote and social benefits. Therefore, it is clear that these Liberal Party players are the real communists hiding behind their improvised democracy.

It Looks Like Bongbong Marcos Will Have the Last Laugh

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It is evident that when the president said in China that the country will have a new Vice President if Bongbong Marcos wins the electoral protest, he was not joking. As a law-abiding president, he does not interfere or influence government agencies to do their jobs – but one thing is obvious; Marcos is highly favored not just by the President but by most people around him.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: ‘Sayang si Gina. I really like her passion,’ says the President after losing Gina Lopez as a Cabinet member.



CA Independence

Malacañang explains the president’s statement when he said that; there was lobby money highlights the existence of certain vested interests in the appointment of officials. This does not in any way diminish the integrity of the Commission on Appointments. The President respects the independence of the CA. He did not interfere with the confirmation process of ex-DENR Secretary, Gina Lopez shows his deference to the body.”




DOJ’S Stand

Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre said that turning Napoles a state witness on the P10-billion pork scam is what the President wants reinvestigated to indict more. Malacañang clarified this saying: “Government is clear, that there is no policy shift on how we deal with Napoles. Neither is there an agreement forged between the Du30 administration and Napoles.” In any case, it revealed that the case was not deeply scrutinized during the Aquino administration because there are Liberal Party members that can be implicated. If so, this frees the Marcoses from corruption allegations because their accusers are actually the corrupt ones.



History Revision or Bongbong Marcos Take-Over

LP people always talk about Marcos family’s attempt to revise history. This is despite the testimonials of Enrile, Honasan, and Binay against the Aquinos. They might be players during the EDSA Revolt by they are all for Marcos. They, in fact, are the true crusaders of Bongbong Marcos’ return to the government. The partial Government’s compensation of martial law victims also revealed that the Marcos heirs already paid these claimants well in advance – but the Aquino administration delayed it. Most of all burying the late Marcos as a hero was made possible under the circumstances. The Supreme Court allowed it. We can only guess the outcome of the ongoing electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo.









AFP Appointees

Du30’s announcement that Año would be the next DILG chief stops speculations that the younger Marcos would take over the post. Año is the latest AFP official in the current Cabinet. He also named former AFP chief Roy Cimatu as the head of Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Other former military chiefs in the Cabinet are National Irrigation Administration head Ricardo Visaya and national security adviser Hermogenes Esperon. The president boasted this because he needs strong men to implement what’s good for the country amidst destabilization efforts. The country is not under martial law yet but Du30 seems to be getting ready for a take-over. Will it be fulfilling his campaign promise to give the presidency to Marcos?

The Most Vocal Liberal Party Senator Dismayed over Gina Lopez’s CA Rejection

senator





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The most vocal Liberal Party senator, Senator Leila de Lima never gave the president credit for anything. But when it comes to Gina Lopez as DENR Secretary, she admits that he chose the right woman for the job. She is obviously dismayed saying that it was too bad that Du30 was unable to keep Lopez in the DENR post.






Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Most Liberal Party Senators voted for Gina Lopez as DENR Secretary but were outnumbered.


Liberal Party’s Bet

Senator Franklin Drilon echoed the sentiments of Senator de Lima and also discloses that he and most Liberal Party senators voted in favor of Lopez. It is just unfortunate that they do not have enough number for her to be confirmed as DENR Secretary.




Not Surprised

De Lima said that She cannot say that she is surprised.  These days, it isn’t any more surprising to see men and women of the strongest conviction—who have the moral courage to stand up for what is right be rejected, she said. They can be undermined and even be subjected to unfair attacks by a method run by vested interests, she added.




System Failure

The senator is convinced that there are forces in the government that even the president cannot risk undermining. In spite of all his threats the destruction of the environment by mining companies, he can do nothing to install a passionate DENR chief. She assures Lopez that it was not her failure but the system malfunction.









LP Votes

Aside from Drilon, most Liberal Party senators also voted for Lopez. Kiko Pangilinan, Ralph Recto, and Bam Aquino admit to it. Other names are not known unless they divulge it themselves. This is allowed according to the confidentiality rule that takes away pressure from CA committee members to vote according to their conscience.

The Reimposition of the Death Penalty Might Not Thrive in the Senate

death penalty





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon thinks that death penalty with cannot thrive in the senate because of cross-party opposition. “It’s not simply because of the LP or Liberal Party. Individually or collectively, the senators believe that we should not impose the death penalty. Seven from the majority coalition and six from the minority are against its reimposition,” Drilon discloses.






Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said Wednesday that he does not see the Senate passing a bill to reimpose the death penalty with opposition to the proposal crossing party lines.



No Hearing on 8 Bills

At the moment, eight bills are in the Senate that impose the death penalty for various crimes. All are pending and no hearing is held, except for one. There are about 13 senators who might vote against the reinstatement of the death penalty, explains Drilon. Six in the minority will surely oppose plus LP, Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto.




Positive Outlook

Senator Manny Pacquiao who is pushing for its reinstatement in the Senate said it will give the law more teeth. He insinuates that would be criminals will think twice to commit crimes if there’s a tough punishment – like losing their lives.



Pacquiao’s Take

 “We must speak to these criminal minds in the only language they understand. They must understand that our government will put a stop to impunity. They have profited from thousands upon thousands of Filipino youths. It must stop now,” Pacquiao said. As a born again Christian, he also added that the death penalty is lawful, moral and sanctioned governmental action.









Death Penalty Cannot Get Enough Nods

Drilon implied that it’s not about the Liberal Party members blocking the reimposition of the death penalty in the senate. It’s about not being able to get enough approvals from the senators of the different political groups. Just a matter of conscience voting.

Martial Law is Right for Mindanao but also Robredo’s Ammunition against Marcos

martial law





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The word martial law is only a poison to Liberal Party members and supporters. The rest of the people seems to be in favor of it to topple insurgencies in Mindanao. Even Mindanao residents like Senator Koko Pimentel is confident that the president only declares it when the need arises. Not much resistance can be felt from netizens online when in the end, martial law is indeed declared to put rebels and terrorists back into order.






Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: Ang preidente ay posibleng magdeklara ng Martial Law sa Mindanao para masugpo ang karahasan doon.



The President’s Ultimatum

The President said that he won’t hesitate to resort to martial law in Mindanao if violence worsens. Destabilization or the fight between the military and the rebels are grounds for martial law. PDu30 swears that if local officials refuse to help him in the war against the NPAs, then it’s time to go for it. He pleads to get the support of the leaders in the region to reprimand chaos before it goes out of control. That could only be the reason that he is compelled to exercise extraordinary powers that he has. He reminds the people of the brutal war it can bring.




Koko Pimentel’s Trust

Senator Koko Pimentel, a staunch ally of the president said that there’s nothing to worry about. He assures that the President only decides on that to “bring back normalcy and order” in identified areas in Mindanao. He insinuates that this can do more good than harm. The president makes sure that there’s no power abuse and also not interested in staying in power longer.




VP Leni Robredo’s Ammunition against Bongbong Marcos

It is very certain, however, that Vice President Leni Robredo makes a lot of noises again after the martial law remarks of the president.This is an opportunity for her to repeat false accusations during the Marcos regime – in her attempt to discredit Bongbong Marcos for the Vice Presidency. The electoral protest against her is delayed due to her constant motions for reconsiderations in every step.

Bongbong Marcos Elated on Robredo’s Delaying Tactics

Atty. Vic Rodriguez in behalf of the Marcos camp shows his disgust that Robredo deprives Bongbong Marcos of his day in court. He said that if the Vice President is very sure of her win and really has no knowledge of cheatings done in her favor then, she won’t block the beginning of the preliminary conference proceedings. As early as now, it looks like Vice President Leni Robredo is guilty of fraud, based on Atty. Rodriguez’s assessment.

The President is not Expected at the Camp Aguinaldo’s 31st Edsa Celebration on Feb 24 but in Bangsamoro Meet

Edsa celebration





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The President is not expected to attend the 31st-anniversary celebration of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution but anything can happen. Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella confirms that Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea represents Du30 during the activity in Camp Aguinaldo. President Digong is scheduled on February 24 to go to the Bangsamoro Transition meeting in Davao, at the same time the event takes place.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: On rumors of an ouster plot versus President Rodrigo Duterte: “There are news circulating and I think we agree with the saying where there’s smoke there is fire.”



No “Salubungan”

The “Salubungan” where the soldiers meet up with the people is not reenacted this time.This is one of the major changes in this year’s 31st Edsa celebration of the People’s Power revolution. It’s the first under the Duterte administration. The same simple ceremony as the hero’s burial for the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos. It keeps the administration’s bid to make things simple, Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra said.




Bangsamoro Meeting

Abella hints that the president has a surprise during the Edsa celebration. However, the spokesman also talks about the launch of the renewed effort to implement the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro where President Digong is scheduled to attend in Davao City.




When there’s Smoke, there’s Fire at the Edsa Celebration

There are rumors that the Liberal Party prepares to oust the president that coincides with the Edsa celebration. The administration is prepared for this. This is the reason why the official 31st Anniversary is on Feb 24 and not the usual date on the 25th. Aside from the “Walk for Life” gathering of the church prior to the anniversary, there are anti-administration groups that plan to hold rallies. It is not certain, however, if they can beat the pro-administration crowd at Luneta on the 25th.

Rally behind the President at Quirino Grandstand on Feb 25

People who still believe in genuine change that the president aims for gather on Feb 25th at the Quirino Grandstand, Rizal Park in Luneta. This is a way to show support to the policies of the president amidst speculations that some give up on him due to alleged extra-judicial killings. Davao death squad rumors also add up to it. It is interesting to see if the president remains popular after the senate dramas of the anti-administration senators.
