online





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

ASec Mocha Uson is a known critic of Vice President Leni Robredo. She surprises her by including Robredo in the online survey for possible DSWD Secretary choice. Eventually, she tops the poll and Bongbong Marcos who is for unity seems to not mind despite his ongoing protest against the VP. Palace Spokesperson Ernesto Abella thinks that this is difficult. He, however, trusts that the President has his way of doing things.

Public Gratitude

Vice President Leni Robredo expresses her gratitude to the public after she tops an online survey on the next social welfare secretary. Her critic, Mocha Uson, a blogger and assistant communications secretary of the Du30 administration initiates it. Robredo said that she was surprised that Uson included her among the choices. The VP should know that ASec Uson is now a government employee like her and in that instance, both should act as public servants and not as the campaigners for their party. This can be taken as a peace offering from Uson to Robredo.



Voters’ Trust

“First of all, I was surprised because my name was included. I also thank Asec. Mocha for believing in our ability to handle the position,” the Vice President said. She is also grateful to those who showed their trust by voting for her. Robredo tops the online survey through Uson’s Twitter account. It garners 81 percent of the votes. Uson initiates the poll after the decision of the Commission on Appointments to reject Judy Taguiwalo as head the Department of Social Welfare and Development.




Top Choices

Vice President Leni Robredo, Social Welfare Assistant Secretary Lorraine Badoy, and former Tarlac Representative Monica Teodoro-Prieto are included in the list of people who might replace Taguiwalo. Uson’s survey showed that Robredo is taking a wide lead against the Badoy and Prieto.








Not Saying NO to Robredo

Abella downplays the online poll. He said that the President has his own ways of picking the next DSWD chief. “I’m sure the President has the other ways of measuring a candidate’s capability, aside from surveys. It means that the President has a different set of categories,” he clarified. It seemed to be a “difficult choice.” “Perhaps, there may be conditionalities that may not be too favorable regarding that if it happens. I don’t know. It all depends on the President.” “I mean, I’m not saying no for Leni, I’m saying that it seems to be a difficult choice,” he added.

Robredo Leads DSWD Poll Survey but NOT Ideal as Bongbong Marcos’ Protest Continues

Protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

VP Leni Robredo is one of the possible replacements of former social welfare secretary Judy Taguiwalo. This is after Palace Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson includes her name in a Twitter poll. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that while he does not reject the idea that the VP can become the next social welfare secretary. However, Abella notes that the Political climate may not make her an ideal candidate. That can be right considering that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against her is still ongoing.

Leads Twitter Poll

Robredo leads in the poll by ASEC Uson. She is ahead of DSWD Asst. Sec. Lorraine Badoy and Nikki Teodoro, wife of former Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr. It can be recalled that the VP was criticized when a typhoon strikes the Bicol region while was in America. Bongbong Marcos even visited her hometown that she appreciated later on. This is because they need all help that they can get, according to her.




Friction with the Palace

The palace was also irked when she observed that the relief goods were slow when she visited one Barangay during Typhoon Nina. The spokesperson said that she should have checked how the government officials particularly the DSWD worked so hard for the job.



Likely Leader in a Rebel

Since the VP is fond of visiting disaster areas as per her photo opportunity press releases, it can be a good idea to let her show that she can do better. It is also noted that she had a previous rift with the rejected DSWD chief Taguiwalo in the past.









Political Climate

It is also understandable that the palace cannot reckon to name Robredo as DSWD Secretary because she likes to criticize the Du30 administration. Perhaps, it is difficult to work on the same page with someone who has the rebellious nature. Besides, she has the electoral protest to concentrate on especially now that she has not paid the remaining tranche of her counter protest against Bongbong Marcos.

Mocha Uson is Anti-Fake News Unlike Senator Trillanes and VP Robredo

senator





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Presidential Communications Office Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson defends herself against “fake news” controversies. Uson said that the public must be aware of what Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and VP Leni Robredo are doing in spreading “fake news.”

Trillanes and Robredo’s Fake News

Uson pointed out Trillanes’ interview with BBC HARDtalk’s anchor Stephen Sackur as to why the senator is a “purveyor of fake news.” He only says negative things about the President when the facts show otherwise. He is the same with V.P Leni Robredo. She garnered lots of hatred when she spoke at a UN side event against the drug war with the wrong data.




Past Mistakes

Uson, who was previously blamed for the spread of fake news admitted that she had committed mistakes in the past. This is particularly about her social media post on a corporation that owed the government some P96 billion in taxes based on “Article 263” of the Philippine Constitution.




Facebook Post

Uson also defended her Facebook post where she shared a photo of Honduras policemen while calling for prayers for the Philippine military battling the Maute group in Marawi City. She said she only wanted the public to join in praying for the government forces in Marawi City. Not at all intending to mislead the public.









Anti-Fake News Act

Also, Uson clarified that she neither supports nor opposes Senator Joel Villanueva’s Senate Bill No. 1492 or the proposed Anti-Fake News Act. She remains neutral at this time but lamented that she should not be singled out just because of some mistakes. Those were unintentional. The nature is totally different from Trillanes and Robredo’s lies.

Rally to Oust Leni Robredo from VP Post Successful Despite Media Indifference

Oust Leni Robredo





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The April 2 “Palit Bise” or Change VP rally organized to out Leni Robredo already have between  4,000 to 6,000 people an hour before the official time at 4:00 PM. It quickly multiplied in number until midnight or so. The images can tell the total estimate of the crowd since there’s still no official head count at this time. Many mainstream media are also indifferent in such news – which is evident that Liberal Party still controls the country through media.

Pro-Administration Rally

Supporters of the President gathered on April 2 to call for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo. Pro-Du30 lawyer Bruce Rivera said, that Palit Bise is an indignation rally of the people and not administration-backed activity. It lasted until 4 PM with full entertainment and attended by personalities from show business.




Own Publicity

Rivera announced the activity in a press conference. This is in connivance with his group “Impeach VP Leni Team.” The impeachment plan against Robredo is allegedly for “peddling lies” about the Philippines to the international community.



People’s Initiative

According to Rivera, the April 2 rally is not for politicians but for the people. It’s an event for the Filipinos people for unity against the Vice President and other Presidential appointees who are giving a bad name to the president, said organizer, Jimmy Bondoc.









Recount is a Must to Oust Leni Robredo

The organizers of the rally believe that there’s no need to impeach Robredo because she’s not the real Vice President – but the electoral protest is so slow. Impeachment is the fastest way of getting rid of her. The crowd is big enough but it can be bigger if the Binay, Honasan, Marcos and Du30 groups unite to ask SC to fast track the recount. This can happen if organizers clearly define that they want Bongbong Marcos to finally take over the VP seat that the majority of Filipinos voted for.

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

This is the first time that a vice president is to be impeached or booted out,” said Rivera. His moves are in cooperation with pro-Duterte blogger, Mocha Uson.

[VIDEO]: Staunch supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte will be holding a gathering on April 2 to call for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo. The indignation rally called “Palit Bise” will be held at Luneta from 4 pm to midnight.



Pro-Administration Rally

Staunch supporters of the President hold a gathering on April 2 to call for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo. Pro-Du30 lawyer Bruce Rivera said, that the indignation rally called “Palit Bise” starts at 4 pm to midnight.




Press Conference

Rivera made the announcement in a press conference that his group, “Impeach VP Leni Team,” reveals their impeachment plans against Robredo for allegedly “peddling lies” about the Philippines to the international community.



People’s Initiative

According to Rivera, no politicians attend their April 2 rally. It’s an event for the Filipinos people for unity. This is not a celebration because there’s nothing to celebrate yet. We are destroyed in the international community,” he said.









Not the Real VP

The organizers of the April 2 Swap VP rally believe that Robredo should not be impeached because she’s not the real Vice President anyway. SC must fast-track the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against her. This is to legitimate install the 2nd top leader voted by the Filipino people. Anyway, if impeachment is faster to get rid of her then, it’s an option.
