Senator Imee Marcos: Revisionism is Unreal – but the Truth Must be Told

truth





By: Elena Grace Flores
The historical truth belongs to the victor. The win of Senator Imee Marcos indicates that most Filipinos believe in her stories. Revisionism is never the intention of the Marcoses – but the people need to know their side of the story. The fact that she won in key areas like the NCR, Cebu, Davao,  and Baguio signifies that the black media propaganda days against them are over.

Problems Remain After 33 Years

The ouster of Marcos’ father, the late President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 is not the answer to solve the problems of the country. They remain despite the promises of those politicians who illegally took the position from him. However, the memories of the so-called golden era linger. These are through the testimonies of the older people who are beneficiaries of the good president’s projects for the welfare of his countrymen.



Micro-Targeting Recipients of Assistance

The Senator’s strategy of micro-targeting the recipients of government assistance can obviously prioritize those who can help in the country’s progress. The helpless indigents are also first in line for much-needed care. A promising orphan for example who only needs one more year in college can already stand on her or his feet in a short period of time. However, there are some who can’t work anymore due to old age and sickness that must be supported.



No Revisionism, Only the Marcoses’ Side of the Story

Revisionism is never the agenda of the Marcoses. They just feel that they owe it to the people to tell their side of the stories. The accusations die one by one as they go along. While their good deeds, especially during her father’s era, still have the evidence to this date. The infrastructures are still useful.  The nostalgic moments of the most controversial regime continue to resurface.




The Senatorial Win Shows that Marcos Addresses the Accusations Well

The people’s votes already speak for the accusations against Senator Marcos. There’s a truth about Filipinos getting fed-up of repetitive propaganda. It does not even matter if she has the credentials of both schools that deny her accomplishment.  The people are just banking on her solutions to the country’s problems. As for her, she only answers the truth that she knows.



Get on to Work with Respect for the Truth

Marcos also reiterates that it needs respect for the opposing factions to work together for a common good. She vows to work harder under the administration of President Rodrigo Du30. The challenges for nation-building are massive and that’s the ultimate truth.

The Real Score Between Bongbong Marcos and Atty. Glenn Chong on Election Fraud

election fraud





By: Elena Grace Flores
Atty. Glenn Chong’s fight for clean election did not stop when he fails to grab a Senate seat during the recent  2019 elections. He now openly campaigns to declare Bongbong Marcos as the real Vice President through social media. Recently, Chong argues with Comelec spokesperson, James Jimenez on the digital election fraud that allegedly happens during the 7-hour  transmission interruption. Jimenez calls it Chong’s alternative theory. Marcos, on the other hand, pushes the Hybrid system that Chong recommends even before the mid-year poll.

Parallel Thinking on the Hybrid  System

BBM explains the advantage of a hybrid system for the next elections through his vlog. The voting and counting must be manual he said. This allows spectators to witness the actual count. Then, the transmission results from the precincts to the Comelec can be through digital transmission. Marcos said that Comelec’s mistake is evident on the use of additional servers. It is necessary that the report must go directly to the poll agency without interruption from voting centers to discourage alteration, he added. This is in line with Chong’s presentation earlier.



The President’s Recommendation

President Rodrigo Du30 recommends to the Comelec not to use Smartmatic anymore for the 2022 Presidential elections. This is exactly the advocacy of Atty. Glenn Chong. Since both the LP and the pro-administration candidates are not happy with Smartmatic, there’s no reason any more to keep it. Although the poll body is an independent entity from the government, it is open to the idea to stop using Smartmatic.



The Election Fraud is Right Inside the Machine

Jimenez and former congressman  Chong are at the Chamber of Representatives during the hearing of the House committee on public accounts. This is after the former Biliran Representative’s complaints about why there are 7 hours of break away from the media during the transmission of results.  Chong also said that his name was not in the template. This is the reason why his name can’t come out in the receipt even though he was voted. The cheating is therefore right inside the machine, he insists.




The Real Score

The real score between Marcos and Chong is simple. Both of them know that they were cheated during the particular elections. They also have evidence to prove such accusations. Therefore, it is understandable that they can work together towards a common goal.



It’s Up to the Congress

Jimenez comments that it is up to Congress to create a law on using a hybrid system for the upcoming elections. He did not show any refusal nor disagreement to President Du30’s suggestion to totally scrap Smartmatic. This is contrary to some posts on social media. He also added that election fraud accusations must be dealt with using actual facts and not alternative truths.  It is very important that the people would continue to watch if he will “walk the talk” or not. Is he really against election fraud?

What is the Reality of the Du30-Marcos Presidential Connivance?

presidential





By: Elena Grace Flores
The Liberal Party’s big loss with Ocho Diretso is the fruit of a “Bikoy” black media propaganda that backfires to the makers. Now, the Senate has the pro-Du30 supporters. In fact, both the majority and the minority are both allies of the Marcos-friendly administration. On top of that, the upper and lower houses are on the verge of voting for the new Senate President and Speaker of the House who can likely influence the Du30-Marcos connivance or vice versa. Watch closely the interview of Senator-elect Imee Marcos regarding the upcoming Presidential elections. Perhaps, not for her but for BBM.

[VIDEO]: Imee Marcos: Presidency ‘not in my mind,’ says Sara Duterte ‘strongest’ 2022 bet.



Cannot Answer for the Presidential Plans of BBM

It is understandable that Senator Imee Marcos cannot answer for the presidential plans of her brother, Bongbong Marcos for the 2022 Presidential elections. However, at the rate it is going, there are signs that a Du30  and Marcos bet would be a tandem. The only question is who would run for President and Vice President. Sen. Marcos humbly said that BBM can’t even sit yet as Vice President because of the ongoing electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. How much more the Presidency? As for her, it is not in her mind at all.



Sara Du30 as the Strongest Presidential Bet

Since most of the administration candidates top the recent 2019 elections, it is safe to say that the Presidential daughter is the strongest presidential bet for the time being. Sen. Marcos added that Mayor Du30 has the important qualities and supporters of a successful national leader. She can also easily nourish her experience in governance in the next 3 years. Needless to say, BBM is ripe for the Presidency but the black media propaganda against their father still haunts them.



Pay Back Time

Recently, President Rodrigo Du30 recommends to the Comelec not to use Smartmatic anymore in the 2022 Presidential elections. This is exactly the advocacy of Atty. Glenn Chong who now urges the Supreme Court to declare BBM as Vice President. Since both the LP and the pro-administration candidates accuse it of fraud, then it’s about time, the President said. Nevertheless, people should know that the poll body is an independent entity from the government.



The Hybrid System

In his recent vlog, BBM suggests the hybrid system for the next elections. The voting and counting must be manual he said. Then, the transmission results from the precincts to the Comelec can be digital. This way, transparency is certain with the use of live stream media.



The Unbeatable Connivance

The Du30-Marcos tandem is definitely unbeatable if the election is held right now. It is just a question of who would run for President and VP. Although Mayor Sara earlier jokes that she would rather run for Vice President. BBM is also more senior than her in politics but still has to make amends to the Du30 supporters who are not pro-Marcos.

To Otso for Debate: Why Marcos? Why Not Gadon and Chong?

Marcos
By: Elena Grace Flores

Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, daughter of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, and Jinggoy Estrada, slam the Otso Diretso slate for boasting on their clean record at the expense of other candidates. Opposition Senate aspirant, Atty. Romulo Macalintal said that there is a problem with the exchanges if they won’t happen face to face. The LP tactic aims to humiliate their opponent using past media propaganda. So, his team challenges other senatorial candidates to face them in debates instead of complaining about “negative campaigning” during political sorties. It is evident through the mainstream media that the LP bets are critical of Marcos’ educational attainment. Atty. Larry Gadon counteracts this and together with another social media hottie, Atty. Glenn Chong, they accept their challenge. z

[VIDEO]: NEWS BREAK: Atty. Glenn Chong and Larry Gadon Accepted Otso Diretso’s Debate Challenge.

Anytime Anywhere for Atty. Glenn Chong

Atty. Glenn Chong said that he never says no to any debate. He is always a debater ever since he was in school and a good one at that. He counter-challenges them by giving him the time and venue for the said occasion. Chong ranks in the top 2 of social media popularity together with Gadon. Not to mention the ever famous, Governor Marcos.

4 vs 1 for Atty. Larry Gadon but Not at the UP

Gadon is up for Otso Diretso’s debate challenge, provided that only four opposition senatorial candidates would be on the same debate with him. The venue should not be at the University of the Philippines where there is a crowd of communists, according to him.

Pimentel: Aren’t they Busy?

“Are they not busy with their own rally?” Senator Koko Pimentel told the media when asked about the Liberal Party-led “Otso Diretso” opposition slate’s challenge to debate on election issues. Pimentel said that the administration’s PDP-Laban party and their guest candidates are open to debates. But the campaign sorties across the country present scheduling problems.

Imee Marcos is Too Busy

“There is no problem if there would be a debate. I have no problem with that. But there are some like us who are too busy making the rounds that we couldn’t even go back to Manila, said Marcos.” This leaves Otso Diretso members with Gadon and Chong. The people are waiting.

Gadon and Chong are Waiting

Given that their political enemies would do everything to stop any Marcos from reaching the top position of the land, the younger Marcos generation is fully-equipped with an experienced politician like their grandmother. The guidance of both Bongbong and Imee Marcos is also vital. Unlike the yellow faction, it is not their nature to discredit other candidates for election. They can play along with politics because it is their life. Many Filipinos are banking on them to lead the nation to prosperity.

Supreme Court CJ Succession is Like BBM Family’s What’s in the Box Game

supreme court
By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 in August said he follows the “seniority” tradition at the high court when he appointed Associate Justice Teresita de Castro as the top magistrate. This was after the ouster of Maria Lourdes Sereno, an appointee of his predecessor from the opposition. As of November 28, 2018, the Supreme Court Chief Justice position is currently held by Lucas Bersamin. He assumes the post after the mandatory retirement of the shortest CJ, Teresita Leonardo-De Castro in October 2018 after her appointment two months earlier. The Filipino leader might shock the public with his appointees but like BBM’s Family What’s in the Box Game, they are all in line with his intention to revive the golden age era following the unpopularized Marcos blueprint. Should this continue, Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta can be next. z

[VIDEO]: Now that the boys are home, we’re taking time off to do some fun things at home.

Move Forward with Marcos

It is on record that Peralta said that the country should move forward as he stood firm on the decision of the Supreme Court (SC). This was in allowing the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery. Despite protests from victims of human rights violations during his term, Peralta made the remark in response to the question of the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) during the public interview for Chief Justice aspirants on whether the decision has really put closure between the grieving family of Marcos and those injured during the martial law years.

Five Choices for Supreme Court CJ

Five names were included on the shortlist of chief justice aspirants drawn up by the Judicial and Bar Council. Bersamin was a regional trial court judge in 1986 and was appointed as an SC justice in April 2009. Among the list, Bersamin is the third most senior justice in terms of experience at the high court. Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, meanwhile, is the most senior justice in the SC where he is serving since 2001. Following him is Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta who was appointed to the SC in January 2009.

Good Friends

Peralta, meanwhile, said de Castro and his friend, Associate Justice Lucas Bersamin, are both of them are capable and competent to lead the Supreme Court. Peralta, a former Sandiganbayan presiding justice, was named to the High Court by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Jan. 13, 2009. He served as Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 95 judge from 1994 to 2002. He will retire in March 2022 while Bersamin retires on October 2019.

BBM Family’s What’s in the Box Game

Now that the boys are home for the New Year holidays unlike the Christmas week, they take the time off to do some fun things at home. They take turns in guessing what’s in the box. Oftentimes, they are suspicious, scared, and shocked only to find a friendly item or creature. The same feelings when finding out the controversial Supreme Court CJ appointees of the President. For sure, they indeed have one common denominator.

Securing the Magistrate Post

If President Du30 is true to his words that he wants Bongbong Marcos to take his place, he would make sure to secure the Supreme Court Chief Justice post to be fair to him. Marcos’ VP electoral protest might take a long time. But in the end, the ruling can be influenced by the high court’s leadership.
