Marcos’ Lawyer Agrees with Panelo that Voiding Trillanes’ Amnesty is Constitutional

amnesty





By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice Presidential Protestant Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer agrees with Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo that President Rodrigo Du30’s decision to declare void ab initio (void from the beginning) the amnesty granted to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is constitutional. He should surrender himself to authorities because an amnesty is a conditional pardon. He must stay loyal to the current government and not to the previous one. All he has to do is present the proof of acceptance for his application which he failed to do so. He can stay in jail while fighting for his case. The same with the former senators Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla. His can is somewhat similar to the quo warranto petition of the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno when after investigation, her SALN was incomplete.

The Presidential Defense

Panelo is coming to the defense of President Du30’s decision of declaring void ab initio, Trillanes’ amnesty. He is arguing that the President’s decision is constitutionally allowed.  Furthermore, Panelo is saying that Trillanes is abusing the grant of amnesty by not complying with the terms and conditions.




Proclamation No. 572

With the signing of Proclamation No. 572 by President Du30, the amnesty granted to Trillanes is declared void ab initio. This is due to Trillanes failing to submit his original amnesty application to the Department of National Defense.  This was for the crimes he has done in 2003’s Oakwood Mutiny and 2007’s Manila Peninsula Siege.




Trillanes’ Offense

Panelo is saying that Trillanes is essentially committing the same crime again. He is bombarding President Du30 with accusations that he has no proof of. Now, that he is called to answer his own crimes, he’s taking refuge at the Senate.



The Right of the President

To protect itself from assault, the government has the right to protect itself through the President. To quote Panelo, “As Chief Executive and Head of Government, he has the power to issue orders protective of the State and its people. This is in line with the prime duty of the government to serve and protect the people under Article II, Section 4 of the 1987 Constitution.”




Warrant of Arrest

Panelo further adds that even without the concurrence of Congress, the amnesty can be voided. As he says, “Senator Trillanes has abused a grant of amnesty, albeit void, and it compels its nullification by the President – official authority who is considered by the 1987 Constitution as the grantor of executive clemencies.”

Gov. Imee Marcos’ Freedom of Expression: Not All UP Educators are Bitter with Martial Law

martial law





By: Elena Grace Flores

Critics say that it is a reunion unlike any other.  It allegedly happens in the bastion of youth activism against martial law. And the gathering of Kabataang Barangay (KB) members would have been unimaginable had it been done during the martial law years of the Marcos rule. Members of the KB original KB were at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, Quezon City, to celebrate its 43rd year. Criticisms are made known by UP’s anti-Marcos stalwarts. While educators who are democratic about it can only apologize. Gov. Imee Marcos respects both sides and takes it as freedom of expression.

Bitter Professors

Some professors of the University of the Philippines have expressed their displeasure on the reunion of the “Kabataang Barangay” right inside the UP Diliman campus.  Governor Imee Marcos also attended the gathering of the group formed back from Marcos’ Dictatorship. However, UP President, Danilo Concepcion is expressing regret over his participation in the reunion.




Ironic for the Martial Law Fighters

If it wasn’t for the irony of the venue, the event was pretty much run of the mill. UP Diliman was a stronghold of the resistance against Marcos’ Dictatorship. Furthermore, the Campus has been the stage of the First Quarter Storm.

Pro-Marcos Ambiance

The participants were sporting red and white shirts with the logo of the KB. They are presumably from KB Chapters all over the country. V signs and Fist signs were flashed as the attendants were photographed giving tribute to Marcos and Duterte. Gov. Imee Marcos was the guest of honor. She was appointed as the National Chair of the group by her father back when she was 21.









Election Protest Highlight

Imee Marcos was seen dancing in the event’s festivities. She was jiving to Rock Baby Rock and Boom Boom onstage. Also, she spoke of the electoral protest of his brother that is still ongoing.




An Apology from the President

The attendance of the UP President, Danilo Concepcion to the event drew ire on Social Media. For that, he is apologizing. He meant no offense, especially to the UP community. He only desired to spend time with the old friends that he hasn’t seen in decades, even if he has to overlook the sentiments of the UP community. He was also president of the Kabataang Barangay Federation back on 1976 till 78.

Credit is Due to President Du30: Nation Building with another Marcos is a Better One

credit





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

During the commemoration of Yolanda’s (Haiyan) first anniversary last November 8, 2014, former Mayor Alfred Romualdez, Bongbong Marcos’ cousin urged the Aquino administration to build back Tacloban for them. He lamented that the priority was not building back their lives. The previous government was always after the economy and they don’t get a good share of that. Recently, Marcos himself inspects the place and other parts of Leyte that needed rehabilitation. He is happy to announce that the credit for building better is due to the current President Du30.

Building a More Egalitarian System of Government

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos said he is planning to return to politics as president of the Philippines. This is years after he lost as the country’s second-highest leader. In an interview, Marcos said he is aspiring to get the government’s top post. “My career is political, and, of course, you aspire to as high a stature within your chosen field as you can achieve – and that would be president in my case,” he said. Marcos added that he will build a “more egalitarian system of government.”




A Society with Equal Opportunities

Egalitarian is relating to or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities. It cannot be denied that there’s a big gap between the rich and the poor in the country today. The masses certainly do not have the same access to quality training, networking, credit or investment facilities than those who can afford them.

Bring Back Nation Building

“In my father’s administration, I kept hearing ‘nation-building’, and I do not hear that phrase anymore,” he said. “It’s more politicking than nation-building,” Marcos added. He was also quick to dismiss corruption allegations against his family, saying: “None of the cases that were filed against us have been won.” Despite the accusations, he suffers on behalf of his father, he remains forgiving and still aims for unity among Filipinos.









The Return of another Marcos is a Better One

The younger Marcos is believed to lead the nation at one point. This is the prediction of unbiased political analysts, astrologers, and fortune tellers. Uncertainties might loom in his VP electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo for cheating during the 2016 election. However, this also serves as a good way of promoting his presidential bid may it be for 2019 or 2022. Regardless, the credit still goes to the good President Du30 who believes in the Marcoses.

Bongbong Marcos Opposes Election Recount Special Treatment for Robredo

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos reiterates how Vice influential President Leni Robredo can be with the Supreme Court should her petition to lower the election shading threshold from 50% to 25% in the middle of the recount is successful. The PET earlier junks Robredo’s said petition but she submits a motion for reconsideration. Marcos also firmly opposes the plea in a separate petition not to grant her request.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos disagrees with the petition of Vice President Leni Robredo to make the election recount threshold at 25%.




Playing the Underdog

VP Robredo fails to convince the public that she’s the underdog in the VP race protest against her by Marcos. She keeps on accusing the latter of masterminding fake news that allegedly maligns her reputation. The vice president further accuses Marcos and said that unfortunately for her, former Senator “has the money to spend to damage her character.”




The President’s Hand

However, the Marcos loyalists are passionate enough to fight for what they believe in without the said well-oiled infrastructure that the VP is famous for. They are grateful enough to be recognized as followers of the son of the greatest leader the Philippines ever had. President Rodrigo Du30 is himself is a believer of the late President Marcos. He is the only President after the older Marcos to continue his massive development plans for the country. Build, Build, Build and the likes.

 




Supreme Court is still Dominated by Caguioa

Previously, Gov. Imee Marcos expresses her concern on Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s loyalty to the previous administration headed by his classmate who appointed him in the position, Former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. His being the Chair of the PET put’s her brother’s case in uncertainty as seen in his various bias rulings in favor of Robredo.









Gossip vs. Facts

The media mechanism of Robredo is now busy launching a reputation management campaign for her. However, there’s not much they can do with the reasonings of the VP. If being quiet against fake news did not work for her, she will surely be hooked from her own mouth. She should address issues as they are like what Bongbong Marcos is doing.

Supreme Court Justice: The People Versus Ex-Pnoy’s Naive Political Prostitutes, VP Robredo and CJ Sereno

Supreme Court





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice President Leni Robredo in support of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, who faces potential ouster from the Supreme Court (SC)  said that as the duly-elected Vice President, she “will do everything in her power to right the wrong.” Robredo said this at the Free the Courts forum of the University of the Philippines (UP). She criticizes the quo warranto petition as the “final blow to the justice system. Her reference to herself as the “duly-elected Vice President,” garnered applause from the limited crowd of LP supporters. This is significant because of her questionable status. The recount of the votes in the protest filed by former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. or Bongbong Marcos is still ongoing. Many of her supporters are even convinced that she’s not the genuine VP because of the anomalies witnessed by real people. She’s just too naive to admit LP’s wicked works during the 2016 election – just like Sereno’s refusal to resign despite the calls from her peers.

The Supreme Court Votes

Speculations abound that the Supreme Court will vote on the petition by May 11, 2018, and that the numbers seem to be against the Chief Justice. Some lawyers are protesting the alleged unconstitutionality of ousting a Chief Justice in a route outside of impeachment. Sereno herself said that her colleagues who are unfavorable to her from the start cannot oust her from the position.



Massive  Cheating

There was massive cheating at the polls in 2016. The presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte reportedly got 21 million votes and ended up with only 16 million. The 5 million votes reportedly went to candidate Mar Roxas, who was fourth in the pre-poll surveys — next to Grace Poe and Jojo Binay — but went up to No. 2 after the ballots were counted. Duterte was so far ahead that all the cheating the Liberal Party did was in vain.




LP’s Back-Up Plan

So, failing to put Roxas in the No. 1 position in the presidential race, the LP had to make his vice presidential bet Robredo win at all cost. That’s the reason Bongbong Marcos was leading Robredo, her closest rival, by about 1 million votes on the night of May 14; but the people were shocked to find that she had overtaken him when they woke up the following morning.




Too Naive

Robredo might not know the maneuverings of her own party as she was too naive to even think of cheating. A supporter said that her husband Jesse always won handily in the elections for mayor of Naga City. Therefore she cannot imagine losing even if it against a popular rival such as Marcos. However, she absolutely give-in to those fraudulent acts as soon as she agreed to be LP’s political prostitute. This goes the same to Chief Justice Sereno. The people on the other hand, continue to show forces behind Marcos through their affiliations like the INC’s Guinness record-breaking charity walk and the Marcos Loyalists Movement gatherings nationwide.
