welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

A week after protesters led by actress, Vivian Velez gathered in front of Leni Robredo’s head office in Quezon City that demand for her impeachment or resignation, it looks like the COMELEC got busy. For this week alone, Bongbong Marcos received no less than four (4) Notices from the COMELEC with regards to the electoral protest filed against Robredo.

Small but Dedicated Group

Four people showed handwritten “Leni Resign”, “Leni Resign ASAP Pls” and “Oust Leni Now” signs, while another protester held a larger “Impeach Leni Resign” tarpaulin. The protesters doubled in number within less than an hour. Actress Vivian Velez arrived with four other people. The number of people who participated in the rally is rounded to 10 based on photographs but each person was a representative of their own pro-Marcos group.



Not Acceptable as VP but must be Impeached

Vivian Velez explains that even if their groups do not acknowledge Leni Robredo as Vice president, she has to be impeached because she has destroyed the image of the country. Velez refers to the video sent by Robredo to a side event of a UN conference saying wrong things about the president’s drug war.



Four Notices Received by Bongbong Marcos

1. Notice regarding the decryption of SD cards and other election data in San Antonio, Northern Samar;

2. Notice with respect to the election closure activities conducted at the COMELEC warehouse in Sta. Rosa, Laguna:

1) Release of VCM external batteries on 21 March 2017;
2) Stripping of unused CCS kits on 21 March 2017;
3) Stripping of used CCS kits on 27 March 2017;
4) Back-up of VCM SD cards and used CCS kits on 27 March 2017.

3. Notice informing the Supreme Court that all requests for election-related data in Siruma, Camarines Sur be addressed to the RTC concerned since the latter now has possession of the requested files.

4. Endorsement letter addressed to the PET regarding the inventory, retrieval, and delivery of election-related data in Toledo City, Cebu.

If Impeachment against Robredo can divide the Nation, How about Recount for Bongbong Marcos?

Robredo





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez threatens to file an impeachment complaint against Robredo for alleged betrayal of public trust. Her video message for a side event of the United Nations drugs body destroyed the country’s image before the international community. On the other hand, Senator Koko Pimentel stresses that if and when Robredo is impeached and convicted, her removal does not mean that her rival, Bongbong Marcos can automatically take her place.

[VIDEO]: Mahihirapan daw na maisulong ang planong impeachment laban kay VP Robredo ngayong nagsalita na si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte. Yan ay ayon kay Senate Pres. Koko Pimentel



Not Duly-Elected VP

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez cannot consider Robredo as VP because he doubts her election victory. He has no one in mind to replace her in case she gets ousted through impeachment. Robredo narrowly won the vice presidential election last over former senator Bongbong Marcos. He has a pending electoral protest against Robredo with the Supreme Court sitting as a presidential electoral tribunal. The constitution dictates that next in line for Robredo is Pimentel then Alvarez. If the post is declared vacant, the president can appoint a replacement from both Houses which is subject to confirmation by the Senate and CA.



Betrayal of Public Trust

Alvarez reiterates his contention that the Robredo betrayed public trust when she sent a video message to the United Nations side event criticizing extrajudicial killings and human rights violations in the President’s war on drugs. He said that the video has put the Philippine leader and the nation in a bad light before the international community.



Impeachment Not for Marcos

It is true that the Marcoses are the president’s allies. He once introduced Marcos to Chinese officials as the incoming vice president if he wins the electoral protest against Robredo. On insinuations that he wants Robredo impeached so that his choice for vice president could take over, Alvarez said that the issue at hand was her having possibly betrayed the public’s trust. It is not PDu30’s goal to impeach her to let Marcos replace her.

Theory on Robredo’s Legitimacy

A trivia from Pastor Boy Saycon’s Binay Camp says that there is an intentional and pre-planned human creation that evident in Robredo’s administration attacks. Ex-Pnoy once said that he shall do everything in his power to stop Du30 and Marcos from winning. The president’s then secret alliance with Binay made him safe fro the Liberal Party’s black propaganda that destroyed Binay. But Robredo emerged victorious fraudulently.  A clandestine operation was implemented by Comelec and Smartmatic. An alleged former executive secretary led the sinister operation. Comelec Head was hands-on. By-pass operations were done at Lucena, Cabuyao, and Tarlac to reconfigure. President Du30 was robbed of around 5 million votes, so are then VP Binay by 6 million votes and Bongbong Marcos by around 3.5 million votes.

Koko Pimentel: Administration’s Ideology is Federalism Not Marcos Authoritarian Rule

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Pimentel reacts to Senator Kiko Pangilinan’s statement that the President’s plan to replace elected barangay officials with appointees is a copy-cat of Marcos authoritarian ideologies. He insists that the administration’s party PDP-Laban is for Federalism and not for an Authoritarian rule. Even Marcos loyalists refuse to accept the Dictator label of Marcos since his policies are always online with the constitution.






Youtube video by; News5Everywhere
[VIDEO]: Pinag-aaralan daw ng Pangulo ang posibilidad na i-appoint na lang ang mga barangay official. Bukod dito, nabanggit din niya ang Martial Law na posibleng solusyon hindi lang sa problema sa droga kundi maging sa terorismo. Ulat ni Zony Esguerra.



An Insult to PDP-Laban

Pimentel takes Pangilinan’s comparison to Marcos as an insult to their party’s ideology. The president is merely explaining the party’s ideology which is federalism. That is at par with the rule of law. The pro-Marcos people are actually also confused if Pimentel is pro or anti-Marcos but obviously more weight on the latter. This is why many do not want Leni Robredo impeached from the VP post because Pimentel is next in line.




Rule of Law

Following the law nowadays has become optional only as per the president. Pimentel agrees with this. There should be a political will in enforcing the law. Part of the law is the Constitution, so due process, respect for human life that must be observed. That’s why police officials are cautioned to go all-out in the war against drugs because there is anti-drug law, he said. They should implement the law with respect because the bill of rights also exists, he added.



Not Marcos Martial Law

So the ideology of the President is the ideology of the party and the party’s ideology is not like martial law during the time of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos. We were born to fight the martial law regime,” Pimentel discloses. This pronouncement even created much disagreement from the pro-Marcos faction.

No Congress Intervention

The Senate leader also corrects Pangilinan’s statement that the ouster of anti-death penalty lawmakers from their key posts in the House of Representatives was a “disturbing indicator of authoritarianism. He stressed that while the President had strong opinions on specific issues, he never attempts to intervene in the affairs of the Congress.

Bongbong Marcos-Robredo-Du30 Triangle: Kong-Beauty and the Beast Political Scenario

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Kong, the king of the Apes can be compared with Bongbong Marcos in character. He keeps low profile mood after Leni Robredo played delaying tactics on his electoral protest against her. Robredo is no doubt  beautiful but her heart is questionable. While the president displays his brutal flirtations with her to put humor on her grave attacks over his administrtaion.

[VIDEO]: Pangulong Duterte, pabirong inalok ng kasal si Robredo para hati na



Bongbong Marcos in a Tyrant’s Mask

Bongbong Marcos, as good-looking and charming as he is, still cannot brush off the made-up dictator image of his father. He is clearly his own man but his detractors can only use the unfounded allegations against his father to destroy him. This is understandable because they just cannot find any loop-hole in the gentleman’s life.



The Distressed Beauty

Leni Robredo, on the other hand, is a bit insecure with her current position as Vice President. She continuously bad-mouths Marcos saying; he just cannot accept defeat when it’s the massive fraud committed allegedly by the Liberal Party people that made her win questionable. She also intensifies her campaign to go against the Du30 administration reaching out to international and human rights bodies.



The Teasing President is Like a Beast with Good Intentions

The president is aware that the VP is involved in destabilization efforts against him. In a speech filled with some jokes and teasing, the President made light of his supporters’ claim that Robredo wants to oust him from power. He joked that perhaps a better alternative is for her to marry him instead. Then, they can share the power with him dictating her what tod do.

Insults through Jokes

The President is noted for green jokes and insults for his critics. Senator Leila de Lima and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV are main targets. He called De Lima the queen for Satan and said that he could kill Trillanes if he had the time. Many among the audience were responsive to these kinds of jokes. The crowd is divided when he alluded Robredo

Bongbong Marcos Won’t Benefit from Robredo’s Impeachment but Koko Pimentel Will

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The ex-lawyer of President Ferdinand Marcos, Oliver Lozano filed an impeachment complaint against Leni Robredo for her criticism of the administration’s deadly war on drugs. The complaint for violation of the constitution and betrayal of public trust was submitted by Oliver Lozano to the office of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez for sponsorship. Lozano said that said Bongbong Marcos would not benefit from it.

[VIDEO]: Impeachment complaint laban kay VP Robredo, inihanda ng dalawang kilalang Marcos loyalist.



Immediate Successor is the 3rd Highest Official of the Land

Under the law in the Philippine constitution, it is the third highest official that shall immediately succeed when the vice presidency is left vacant.  In this case, it is the Senate President Koko Pimentel who directly benefit once Robredo is impeached and not Bongbong Marcos. Next in line to Pimentel is House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.




Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Win is Crucial

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II clarified that Bongbong Marcos can take the VP post once Robredo is removed from her post. But he has to win the electoral protest first. It is noted that the said process takes years to facilitate but since many cannot stand Robredo anymore, it is not so important who would replace her in the VP post for as long as they can get rid of her.



VP Successor can also be Appointed

The president can appoint a VP replacement from members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The appointee assumes office once the majority vote from both Houses of the Congress approves the appointment. The Commission on Appointments then scrutinizes the VP candidate for confirmation. This is based on Article VII Section 9 of the 1987 Constitution.

Ground for Impeachment

Robredo allegedly betrayed the people by shaming the nation with her dishonest message to the side event in the United Nations forum. “The respondent is duty bound to act within the framework of the Constitution but her acts of dishonesty and moral bankruptcy breached the bounds of the Fundamental Law,” Lozano said. In the video, Robredo exaggerated the killings linked to the drug war and also revealed a so-called “palit-ulo” scheme with the wrong description.
