Close Ties with the President
A martial law survivor sees President Rodrigo Duterte’s close ties with the Marcos family and the lack of Duterte’s support for the Presidential Commission on Good Government as reasons why the agency is not winning any cases. The evidences shown by the PCGG do not constitute as public records because the certified true copies are mere photocopies.
Loans and Mortgages
Sandiganbayan’s Second Division already dismisses the P1.052 billion ill-gotten wealth case previously. The case is against Bienvenido Tantoco, Sr., the Marcos couple, among others. This is in connection with the Tantoco clan’s 11 real estate properties in the Philippines, Hawaii, and Rome. Shares of stocks in 19 companies; cash on hand and in a bank; jewelry; notes, loans, and mortgages receivable. Motor vehicles and three Cessna aircraft. Senator Imee Marcos, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., Irene Marcos and Constante Rubio, a close associate of the former president are also in the complaint.
The Sandiganbayan Affirms the Dismissal of Another Marcos Case
The Sandiganbayan dismisses earlier the P200-billion forfeiture case against the Marcos family due to lack of evidence. The anti-graft court also junks prior to that a P102-billion ill-gotten wealth case against Ferdinand Marcos and wife Imelda and 11 of their cronies due to the prosecution’s failure to present evidence. Recently, the Sandiganbayan also junks the Philippine government’s appeal on the dismissal of the P267 million ill-gotten wealth case against the Marcos couple and their cronies.
Filipinos can only feel the burden. The rising costs of electricity, water, and telecommunication provisions. They are all privatized during the time of the late President Corazon Aquino. The pro-people system of the late President Ferdinand Marcos vanishes along with the rise of the oligarchs in many sectors including the health industry. Aside from the bad economy, the novel coronavirus scare also contributes to the quiet commemoration of the EDSA revolt or mutiny to some.
What is the real essence of EDSA? Behind democracy propaganda,

EDSA is a Big Mistake
Tatlong dekada na ang pagsisisi ng karamihan sa mga Pilipino nang magising sila sa katotohanan na ang 1986 EDSA ay isang malaking pagkakamali. Bakit?
Novel Coronavirus Scare
Due to the threat of the novel coronavirus, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines expects a smaller crowd at the commemoration of this year’s People Power anniversary. NHCP and EDSA People Power Commission Chairman Rene Escalante said that fewer people can gather during the program to mark the 1986 peaceful revolt. As many people know, that led to the downfall of then-President, Ferdinand Marcos.
Social Media Noises in Favor of the Marcoses
Videos of the late President Marcos emerge on social media that shows his heroism. In one, he orders General Fabian C. Ver to keep the people safe by holding their fire. The Marcoses are known to always consider the plight of the people despite the accusations against them.

The electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos may again face another delay due to some divisions in the Supreme court – but one thing is certain. Many advocates in the society come forward to defend the late President Ferdinand Marcos citing his pro-poor policies. Marcos’ demonization can’t stand a chance against active players in the economy. Take the case of CREBA National Chairman Charlie AV Gorayeb who commends Marcos for his presidential decree on socialized housing. He is surely an advocate in making Filipino lives better. This happens during the 888 News forum recently at the Marco Polo Hotel during an ambush interview.

A Home for Every Filipino
The Chamber of real Estate and Builders’ Associations, Inc. or CREBA announces its 28th National Convention to the 888 News Forum attendees. It aim to provide a home for every Filipino. Their target is to award 10 million homes by 2040. The convention is from October 9 to 12 at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Lahug, Cebu City.
CREBA is Pro-Administration
CREBA commits to protect and promote the interests of its members. It harmonizes the conflicts in busines, government and homeless society. The national interest is paramount to them. The association seeks to be an effective and dynamic partner for national development with the real estate industry being a major pump-primer of the national economy. CREBA has become the government’s stongest ally. This is in terms of their national and affordable housing programs.
Financial Support to the Low-Income Earners
Advocate Gorayeb reminds the public that the government mandates a 270 billion per year funds from the social security system, security insurance, PAG-IBIG, and the Marcos era presidential decree that obliges trade banks to provide 25% of a housing unit’s loanable amount.
No Other President is as Good as Marcos
Chairman Gorayeb finally testifies that ex-President Marcos is by far the only president who takes care of the poor through his era’s policies and reforms. There’s no doubt for him that he is indeed the best president the country ever had. His sector would indeed welcome his son, Bongbong Marcos as President Du30’s replacement should the electoral protest results favorably for him.

The presumptive VP’s camp urges the Presidential Electoral Tribunal to release a copy of the committee report on the initial recount of votes in the electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos. This seems unecessary when the deliberation is already the next day. Her counsel said that the SC only decides whether election protest will continue or not. Meanwhile, Marcos is confident of ousting the sitting vice-president in a legal challenge. This would place him a heartbeat away from the Presidency as PDu30’s anointed if the ruling is favorable to him. The loyalists are quietly anticipating his victory.

October 8 Deliberation Round
Atty. Romulo Macalintal swears that Robredo would remain as VP whatever the Presidential Electoral Tribunal’s decision would be. This is because the tribunal would only rule on whether the poll protest would continue or not, he said. They should know that BBM’s family was in talks with the President, a political ally, to end the government’s three-decade hunt for the billions of dollar hidden wealth. Although there are evidences that the former first lady Imelda Marcos desperately seeks the attention of the Congress to prioritize its claim constitutionally but to no avail. At the end of the day, the PET fails to act on the electoral protest on October 8. The deliberation’s new schedule is on October 15.
Marcos is Expecting a Favorable Ruling
“We are definitely sure that when the recount starts the true result will emerge and prove that the votes in the vice-presidential election had been incorrectly counted,” Marcos told reporters. Marcos, 60, narrowly lost the vice presidential election last year but he filed a case with the Supreme Court alleging the victor, Leni Robredo, cheated by manipulating computerised vote counting machines. The 8-6 rumored SC ruling which is favorable to Marcos initially leaks but the Chief Justice denies it.
A Political Comeback
Victory for Marcos would cement his family’s remarkable political comeback. This is after 31 years after a famous “People Power” revolution saw millions of people take to the streets to end his father’s 20-year rule. The family was forced into US exile. Although the family remains popular with Imelda, 88, as Congress representative for the solid north.She dreams of his son Bongbong to become president at the right time.
BBM Can be a Step Away from the Presidency
The vice-president takes over should the president die or becomes incapacitated. Du30, 72, admits to having a range of health problems, including a cardiovascular illness. The President insists he is an anti-graft crusader. He also openly admires the leadership style of the the late President Ferdinand Marcos. Senator Imee Marcos was one of his presidential campaign supporters. Du30 mentions something about the settlement on the wealth cases. Bongbong Marcos also confirms that his family offers to sign a “quit claim” deed in which it would identify properties and assets it had acquired legally. Then, relinquish its claim to whatever else the government finds.

It is a common question by the Dilawans or Aquino-loyal oppositions that if the wealth for humanity preserved by the late President Ferdinand Marcos is not stolen, why would they offer to “return” 90 percent of it? In fact, it’s a possession that need not to be returned according to case acquittals in courts. However, ex-President Marcos’ will clearly segregates it from the 10% of his family’s inheritance. They are in the hands of trustees. Marcos’ letter in former Vice President Doy Laurel’s possession addressed to Cory Aquino says it all.

[VIDEO]: Cory Aquino rejected turn over of Marcos Wealth to the Filipinos
Former VP Doy Laurel Witnesses Cory Aquino’s Greed
President Ferdinand E. Marcos gave Doy Laurel a letter addressed to President Corazon Aquino proposing that 90 percent of all his assets worldwide would be given to a foundation in trust for the Filipino people. Unfortunately, Cory ignored Doy.
Marcos to Doy Laurel:
“Please tell Mrs. Aquino to stop sending her relatives. They are proposing so many things, all I want is to die in my country. Tell her to let me come home. I will turn over 90 percent of all my worldly possessions to our people. I will ask only 10 percent for my family. That is much better than her relatives are proposing.”
To Return or to Turn Over Wealth to the People
There is a big difference between the highly publicized alleged “return” of the Marcos wealth versus the “turn over” term of Marcos as shown in his letter to Aquino. His will and testament clearly states that such earthly possessions are for the people’s welfare. Livelihood and educational programs are few of the priorities along with healthcare, disability and retirement benefits. Not to mention national infrastructure, agrarian, and irrigation developments.Plus the rehabilitation of mining and industrial projects.
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos Pleads the Senate
YouTube video by
Imelda Marcos said that her husband was not a thief. His fortune is from his gold trading passion. The senate hearing was a live broadcast by a cable television company. This allows many Filipinos to see for the first time Mrs. Marcos’ stand on the hidden wealth. Nonetheless, they also see for themselves how the mainstream media twists many facts just to discredit the Marcoses.
Not with the Marcoses but with the Trustees
Marcos’ widow pleads with the senate to help her implement her husband’s will and testament for the humanitarian foundation. The assets must be taken from the hands of the trustees. This was her most urgent reason to attend that particular hearing. Unfortunately, the interrogators were only into controversial matters other than to alleviate the sufferings of Filipinos from poverty.
