Bongbong Marcos is Bleeding Money to Preserve the People’s Rights to Know the Truth


By: Elena Grace Flores

Most Filipinos are grateful that Bongbong Marcos pays the gag order rule violation penalty than leave people in the dark. He is keen to air his observations of the ongoing manual recounts. This is in both the Camarines Norte and Iloilo priority areas. However, it’s not his nature to spit the outcome of undisclosed electoral protest against Leni Robredo. His camp is compliant to almost all rules of the PET if not all. Since paying the Php 36 Million protest fee in full, Marcos still bleeds money. The recent one is the said fee that amounts to Php 50,000. Robredo continues to buy time as usual.

Good that Marcos has Money

It may be an advantage that the former Senator is wealthy enough to spend for all the demands of the PET He can always raise money from equally-abled friends if it’s too much to affect his cash flow. All he wants to find out is the truth and according to various developments in the Senate, he is likely the legitimate Vice President of the Philippines.

The Undemocratic Gag Order

The PET in late June imposed a fine of P50,000 each on Marcos and Robredo as a penalty for their violation of the sub judice rule. It bars parties to a case from making disclosures that could result in the prejudging of matters pending before a court. Marcos’ poll protest against Robredo is a challenge to her victory in the 2016 election. It involves a manual recount of ballots from three pilot provinces. The results determine whether the recount will proceed to the rest of Marcos’ contested voting precincts.

The Denial Queen

Robredo said that she nor her counsels did not reveal sensitive information about the poll protest. Marcos, on the other hand, said his own camp’s statements were not meant to prejudge the issue, influence the court, and obstruct justice. They are just his mere observations. She, nonetheless claims that she is just merely answering Marcos’ disclosure. Ultimately, the questionable VP can never refrain from pointing fingers at Marcos.

The Manner of the Payment Process

Marcos through his counsels, unto this Honorable Tribunal (PET), most respectfully manifests that he has paid the amount of Fifty Thousand Pesos (P50,000) in compliance with its Resolution dated 26 June 2018,” stated Marcos’ compliance document.

Preserving the People’s Rights

The amount mentioned is just minimal to preserve the people’s rights to know the truth. The secretive nature of the PET in treating Marcos’ electoral protest triggers the people’s curiosity with the integrity of the automated election. Since Atty. Glenn Chong reveals many anomalies that benefit the LP bets in 2016, loyalists of both Marcos and Du30 are now ready to take their fight into the streets in a public protest. They would soon gather in front of the COMELEC on August 10, 2018, at 2 PM.

Bongbong Marcos’ Stock Shares Support his Independent Wealth

stock shares

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos was not only born with a silver platter. He is also blessed with golden talents and connections. No matter how anti media propaganda questions his wealth in connection to his father, he remains rich and famous at that. Stock shares are notable in his SALN.

2015 3rd Richest Senators

Cynthia Villar is still the richest senator in the Philippines. She has a declared net worth of ₱3,500,565,480 in her 2015 SALN Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto claims the spot for the second richest senator in the Philippines. He has a net worth of ₱531 million. The third richest senator is Bongbong Marcos at ₱211 million from the previous year’s ₱200 million. He is no longer a senator at the present time but his electoral protest against Leni Robredo for the VP post is ongoing.

Stock Shares Game

Some news reports criticize his increasing net worth despite having some businesses that went bankrupt. It only shows that these critics do not have business backgrounds or did not take the initiative to learn the details of the story they are covering. All business people know that investing in stocks is a game of win or lose. The outcome is different at the end of the day. Positive results depend on the many wins compared to the number of losses.

Money Works for Marcos

Unlike VP Leni Robredo who would rather get her daughter’s Harvard school supplies from the trash while after partying with the high society people in the US, Marcos does not have the poverty mentality. He has used his money to work for him by investing in many stocks. All his eggs are also not in one basket obviously. This is why even if other businesses lose, he is still rich.

Ful Payment

Marcos already paid in full the P66,023,000 electoral protest fee ahead of time. His friends pooled their resources in order to raise the amount during the first installment. The excess was used for the second installment together with the sale of a property believed to be a condominium. The Philippines definitely need a leader who has proven capability to acquire independent wealth. Forget the alleged hidden wealth. He is not his father.

Atty. Vic Rodriguez: Nobody Believes that Robredo does not have Money

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Vic Rodriguez of the Marcos Camp said that Leni Robredo again fooled the people by saying that she had difficulty in raising the money to pay her counter-protest against Bongbong Marcos. After all, she paid half a billion pesos according to her SOCE in the last vice presidential elections.

[VIDEO]: Atty. Vic Rodriguez of the Marcos Camp said that Leni Robredo fooled the people once again.

No Return for Marcos

It is evident that Leni Robredo is not on to the will of the people in last year’s elections. She said she would never allow the son and namesake of the late president Ferdinand Marcos to grab the second highest office in the land and return to power. This is the only thing that matters to her; to block Bongbong Marcos from the Vice Presidency.

Own Wants

Robredo’s words are contradictory to her actions. She said; “Even if it’s difficult, even if we’re going through many challenges, we will not let the voice of the people be taken away.” She said this when addressing her supporters outside the Supreme Court where she paid P8 million counter-protest deposit. If it is the voice of the people she is after, she wouldn’t keep on delaying the electoral protest of Marcos.

It’s all About Her

She added; “You know that this fight is not about me. This fight is about all of us.” Robredo is again lying when she said this. Her own words contradict this statement. Perhaps, she has to be reminded why she agreed to run under the Liberal Party for the VP post – did she said to block Marcos? The truth is, she allowed herself to be used as a political prostitute against Marcos for her own personal gains.

Bitter Supporters

She also said the country suffered during the brutal martial law regime. An alleged victim, former Commission on Human Rights chair Etta Rosales even joined who failed to bring out the truth in history that there was really such thing as the Golden Age of Marcos. They were also joined by another bitter activist priest Robert Reyes and members of their online group The Silent Majority who despite using their channels in destroying the Marcoses are still no match for the people’s voice via social media.

Eliminating Hindrances to Prosperity


By: Elena Grace Flores


ProsperityBeing financially ignorant is the number one hindrance to prosperity. You may be earning well these days but you earnings can also disappear at one when you are not careful. Learn to be smart with your finances. Reach out and strive to be informed with what you should do with your earnings. Here’s how:
•    Talk to financially stable people around you and learn from their experiences. Seek opportunities to ask for their advices concerning ways on saving up and investing money for the future and in spending wisely.
•    Search and read articles about financials. Look up for keywords on the internet such as wise spending, savings and investments. Learn from these articles and apply what you learned into your own financial situation. Read also relevant books that you can find in the bookstore.
•    Attend seminars with topics on finance and investments. Raise questions when things are not clear to you. You will get first hand answers and you can learn faster this way.
•    Visit a bank and talk to account officers on what they can offer for your extra funds in terms of savings and possible investments.
•    Do not settle for one opinion only. Ask for second, third and possibly more opinions and come up with a good decision on how to keep or invest your money.

Have access to updated financial security or investment information and facilities available in your area. Do not just settle for ordinary savings methods in the bank as most types of accounts do not yield high interest – a meager 1 or 2 percent annually. Money market can yield you as much as 44% per annum but you have to know what stocks to buy. Another hindrance to prosperity is spending beyond your capacity to earn. This should be avoided because deficit spending can cripple you instantly and it will take time for you to recover – if you ever will. It can entice you to avail of numerous credit facilities thus stressing your budget out for the coming years. In addition, stay away from the following:
1.    Impulsive buying should always be avoided. It will just make you purchase things you don’t really need. They usually end up accumulating dust in your household or just sitting in your closet for a long time.
2.    Do not be envious with the luxuries of people around you. Avail of it only when it becomes affordable. Forcing the issue by availing credit facilities just for luxuries will bring you lots of troubles.
3.    Spending before the expected yield is achieved must be discouraged. Never spend money that is not yet earned. With the availability of credit card facilities, we tend to charge expenses for our upcoming income to settle. When the money is not generated as expected, the credit will be extended thus incurring more charges including hefty penalties. Most credit card companies charge 3.5% per month for interest of unpaid balances alone.
4.    Do not invest without concrete business plans. Major business failures can be avoided by preparing a comprehensive business plan prior to investing hard-earned money. Engage people with vast experience and expertise in doing this together with actual market survey.
5.    Availing of loans with sky high interest rates is a killer. Know that you are like committing financial suicide when you resort to this during emergency. Know your option beforehand with finance facilities like collateralized bank loan for future needs.
6.    Do not be negative with all the possible means. When you see an opportunity to earn without monetary investments, take advantage of the situation. You can invest your time, know-how and talents and you’ll be on top of your finances again in due time.

Being financially stable is a big achievement. It is the key to a stress-free living. You will also see that when the quality of your life improves without debts, frictions with family members will also diminish. You can also have the chance in helping important people in your life when you have the resources – in terms of money, time, experience and values learned. Avoid any forms of cash advances and you will eliminate the hindrances to prosperity.

Managing Money Matters to be Financially Stable


By: Gynn Flores


Managing MoneyThe quality of our life mainly depends on our finances. If we make good, we can afford the luxuries that money can buy like a nice house, a posh car, good education for our children and grand holidays. Oftentimes what we see is not really the real picture. There are many people who are living a grand lifestyle that are also suffering from a lot of financial burden. It will even cost them everything with just one wrong move. Do not let this happen to you. Living a simple life is more relaxing than chasing payment due dates. Be aware that financial stress can make you sick and can cost you not only your fortune but also your life. Apply the following tips to attain financial stability:

  1. Live within your means. Discipline yourself not to go on impulsive buying. Spend only for things that are necessary. Never use credit facilities for luxuries like going to an expensive holiday. That can cause you a major deficit spending. Interests on credits can eat up your savings and sometimes even your budget for the basic necessities. When this happens, resist the temptation to make some more credits – which will definitely lead you to bankruptcy.
  2. Save for the rainy days. Set aside a portion of your earnings for savings. 10% is very ideal.  Never touch this as much as possible as if the funds are good as spent. Secure your savings by depositing in a trusted bank with guaranteed insurance in case of calamities, going out of business and inflation.
  3. Maximize your potential to earn. Endeavour other options to earn but do not let your main source of income suffer.  An example would be an extra 4 hours part time job on top of your main job. Getting online jobs such as writing during your free time is an option – if you have the skill. This can be added to your savings or you can even spend it for some luxuries like dining out with your family or buying some signature items that will boost your confidence.

  4. Live a healthy and balanced life.Work is mandatory. However, never deprive yourself withenough rest and sleep to allow your body to rejuvenate and re-energize for the next working day. Pushing yourself to the limits can make you sick which in turn can make you miss your work. Remember that most diseases occur when the body is abused. Eat nutritious foods and nurture your body with healthy recreations like sports, exercise and other forms of socialization.
  5. Learn from the mistakes of others and listen to the advice of experienced people. Making the same mistakes as your colleagues is not a good mental indication.
  6. Maintain a good credit standing and a good reputation. This will allow you to avail of financial facilities when you need them for concrete businesses.  It is not bad to resort to personal loans and credits when you have a sound business plan that has good earning potentials.
  7. Choose your battles and avoid taking too much risk – especially on matters that you know nothing about. Aggressiveness can cost you everything and recovery period can take a whole lifetime.
  8. Do not put everything in one basket. If you have some extra money, do not invest everything in one project. Leave some for savings where you can always turn to when you fail.
  9. Make some sound investments in areas that you are knowledgeable of. Investments can make you earn extra or can make the value of your money increase in time. Examine each offer or opportunity well before signing the contract. Deal only with a reputable institution.
  10. Be ready for old age and impart to your children and life partner the lessons you learned in handling money. Reward yourself with a comfortable retirement plan so that your good life will serve an example to the younger generation. Being a role model is the best teacher for others.

The list can go on and on but following the given guidelines above can make your finances very stable. Crisis happens every now and then but being ready tocope at any time is the best security you can ever have. The grief and sufferings over sickness, loss of a loved one, calamities or fire are manageable when you are equipped with the essential resources to continue living despite the odds – and personal loans can make life difficult when you go overboard. Life is a transition so there is also no need to be paranoid about anything at all.
