A week prior to the recount, this is a hot topic in social media. Nothing can beat the thickness of Vice President Leni Robredo’s face. This is after she said that all the winners of the 2016 elections including President Rodrigo Du30 are affected with Majority Leader Senator Tito Sotto expose. Previously, the Supreme Court already set aside the first course of action on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest that questions the integrity of the automated poll system of Smartmatic to pave the way for the recount on March 19, 2018. However, Senator Nancy Binay’s resolution on the issue enables the Senate to investigate then the Congress follows suit.

How Different is Fraud?
Robredo said that Sotto’s claims appear to be different from the grounds of her rival, former Senator Bongbong Marcos, in his electoral protest against her victory in the May 2016 polls. Both point out that they have evidence of digital manipulation that only the ruling party at that time is capable of orchestrating. Although, she did not elaborate on the subject.
Favorable to Marcos
Marcos congratulates Senator Sotto for bringing the “election anomalies” to the public. Robredo, on the other hand, proposes an independent body to look into Sotto’s allegations.
The Senate & the Congress VS. the Supreme Court
The co-equal branches of the government seem to be on a power struggle at the moment. Firstly, Senator Tito Sotto III claims in his privilege speech to receive information that the 2016 polls were tainted with irregularities. The early transmissions of votes and alleged proof of “foreign access” in the election servers are among the issues raised. Then, the House Minority Leader Danilo Suarez also laid out the analysis of the cheating reports that coincide with Marcos’ protest. Lastly, the Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno faces an impeachment case. Robredo takes this as a quick way to get rid of her.
One Week Before the Recount
A week prior to the recount set on March 19, 2018. Marcos continues to attend to social invitations from groups that consider him as the legitimate Vice President. Meanwhile, Vice President Robredo tries very hard to bring down with her the President who is in alliance with the Marcoses. The people can only guess the next development.
Many voters asked Binay supporters – why Binay? It all boils down to the good heart. That’s how the family is known in their own community. No one can contest that despite the black media propaganda against them they remain compassionate. The Binays share the same forgiving heart as the Marcoses.

[VIDEO]: A little over a year ago, a warm exchange between Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Grace Poe, and Nancy Binay was unimaginable. But on Wednesday, May 17, ahead of Cayetano’s final speech as senator, it happened.Senator Binay approached Cayetano and wished him luck on his new stint as foreign affairs secretary.
Nancy Binay’s Forgiving Heart
Senator Nancy Binay approaches Senator Alan Peter Cayetano to wish him luck on his new stint as foreign affairs secretary. It might be awkward given what Cayetano did to her father, the former Vice President Jejomar Binay accusing him of corruption using the Senate blue ribbon televised hearings. This really ruined his chances to become president and removed him from the top spot of presidentiables.
Senator Panfilo Lacson teases Binay saying that her Goodluck message is so contrived. This created the playful atmosphere in the Senate where jokes and sarcasm are not any more serious issues unlike during the 2016 elections.
Referring to his instant confirmation, Cayetano said that it must be because of two things: either they honestly want him to be in the DFA or they just want him out of the Senate quickly. That catches the attention of Grace Poe.
Senator Grace Poe’s Joke
Upon hearing Cayetano’s response, Senator Poe eagerly said: Good that you’re naturally aware. I don’t have anything to do with that, she said. Then added that with all that they have been through, it is just proper to move on and leave all the pains behind.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV already lost his credibility. He must be ignored. Malacañang does not give in to his cravings. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that the Palace would rather focus on “nation building” than entertain the accusation of Trillanes that President has P2.4 billion in his bank accounts. Senator Nancy Binay agrees with this when she said that Trillanes does not have an inch of credibility and yet he talks like a saint.

[VIDEO]: Palace Spokesman Ernesto Abella. Rehash has been dealt with 3 days before the elections. Trillanes has to go to higher authorities if he has basis on the alleged bank accounts of the president. Trillanes must be the one to prove that they exist.
Corrupt because of Arroyo?
Trillanes also accuses the president of being corrupt because he allows former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to be free from prison. She is released from detention over the court’s decision for lack of evidence on the plunder cases filed against her. Why blame PDu30? She is clearly a political prisoner of rival, former President Noynoy Aquino, Trillanes’ boss who pardons him for rebellion.
Bank Account Records Falsified by Trillanes
Abella sais that the document that shows the undeclared wealth of the President and his family is “falsified” when Trillanes brought up the issue during the 2016 elections. So, he’s a liar in the sense that he is capable of faking legal documents. He is no longer credible. He should not be given that kind of attention that he wants, that he craves for, Abella said. The presidential spokesperson added that the senator does not merit attention since he is making a claim sans integrity.
Nancy Binay: Trillanes does not an Inch of Credibility
Senator Nancy Binay’s statement saying that Trillanes does not have credibility and yet he talks like a saint to discredit her father’s presidential bid in 2016 applies to the current situation. Trillanes is noted to stage senate plays and media shows to destroy the reputation of his party’s political opponents. Since PDu30 is seen as the bridge of Bongbong Marcos to the executive office, the Liberal Party is expected to do everything to block that. This is from cheating as per the electoral protest against VP Robredo to media propaganda by Trillanes and the likes.
The President honors cases with integrity. He said that if Trillanes has evidence, he will resign. PDu30 merely shrugs off the senator’s “old and rehashed” claim on his alleged hidden wealth. Since he already won as president, that means no one believes Trillanes anymore.

Infidelity Rumors Escalates after Endorsing Bongbong Marcos
Jejomar Binay admits to having an extra-marital affair in the past that almost breaks his marriage to Dr. Elenita Binay. That affair has long been over. Even before he becomes Vice President. The issue is raised as a black propaganda when he initially leads the presidential poll in 2016. It also escalates when he endorses Bongbong Marcos as Vice President. His wife and family already forgive him. Like any other human being, he is not perfect and also commits mistakes, he said.
Binay’s children, Junjun and Abby, shrugged off the rumors online about the illicit affair of their father. They took it a politically motivated. They know it in the past but the family and their mother are over it. Their patriarch really made a huge effort to win his wife back. Junjun added that the Binay couple went on a European cruise. He also exerted much efforts to make it up with his children. Abby stresses that “If there was any marital infidelity, it was between my Mom and my Dad.”
Binay can’t be concerned anymore on the judgment that his extra-marital affair is a reflection of his character as a public official – because he’s not anymore in office. All accusations especially the corruption cases are just politics. Once he enters politics, everything is public. He was prepared for that. Now both Jejomar and Elenita Binay enjoy the rewards of their efforts to genuinely serve the people and to nurture the family at the same time. Their cases can only be dismissed in due time. Politics are now handled by their children. Their role is upgraded into the consultancy level. They only do voluntary work when needed. Comfortable and happy life is already attained to the fullest. Though it is a belief that longer but blessed life is bestowed to those who continue to help the ones in need – such as the Binay!
