Candidate for Senator, Imee Marcos Refuses to Go Down to Rappler’s Level on SAF 44 Day Using Martial Law

By: Elena Grace Flores

Rappler is on again in trying to destroy the reputation of Senator Imee Marcos, a candidate for Senator. This comes as President Rodrigo Duterte’s own preferences for 2019 Senators are made known. They include Imee Marcos, Sonny Angara, Cynthia Villar, and Pia Cayetano. The yellow media digs again Marcos’ indirect answer when asked by GMA if she was really underage during martial law. However, this happens coincidentally during the SAF 44 Day.z

SAF 44 Memorial Day

The relatives of the fallen SAF 44 troopers witness the ceremony that marks the Day of National Remembrance for the troopers. They were killed during a 2015 police operation in Mamasapano, Maguindanao due to the alleged negligence of the former President Noynoy Aquino.

Ex-Pnoy’s Plan Exodus Mishap

On January 25, 2015, the 44 SAF troopers perished in a cornfield in Tukanalipao, Mamasapano. They were serving an arrest warrant for Malaysian terrorist bomb-maker Zulkifli Abdhir or Marwan and other suspected terrorists. The police operation was code-named “Oplan Exodus.” Marwan was killed was also killed but incompetence in handling the operation falls on Aquino that led to the excessive loss of lives. Worst, he did not take responsibility. Instead, he passes the blame to the former PNP Special Action Force director Getulio Napeñas who then criticizes him of installing ex-Philippine National Police Director General Alan Purisima who to in the operation despite his suspension.

Scrutinizing the Senator to Be

Then comes Rappler’s news digging the ghost of martial law. It says that Marcos may be 17 years old during the proclamation of Martial Law was. However, she was already turning 31 in 1986. It was the year her family was exiled from the Philippines to Hawaii. No, mention of the wasted brave men in uniform during the time of Aquino. Understandably, the online news blog is only after the destruction of its political enemies like Marcos.

Moving On from Family Feud

Imee Marcos graciously said that the martial law regime is far gone. Therefore the Marcos-Aquino family feud should move on. It would be beneficial to talk about what they can do to solve the problems of the country and eventually help in improving the lives of Filipinos. Despite that, the yellow media even digs further just to get controversial scenarios. Marcos was born on November 12, 1955. Her father declared Martial Law on September 23, 1972, when she was about to turn 17 years old. She merely explains without malice that they want to move on from their dark memories when they were young to a brighter future together with the rest of their countrymen.

Misleading and Selective News

This kind of news really has no significance in the lives of the people. When the essence of a very special day is ignored because it can bring a political group down during the upcoming elections and make noise on gossip that can mislead lots of Filipinos who normally do not read thoroughly proves that the publication is not for public service. It merely exists to spread black media propaganda to discredit their opponents. As far as Marcos is concerned, she has moved on and is currently enjoying a high rating.

Filipinos are Ready for a Marcos Comeback after EDSA Fails to Gather 3 to 6,000 Supporters

EDSA





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that the government has appropriated funds to commemorate the EDSA People Power revolution last February 25. The President has no attempt to diminish the significance of the uprising that toppled the Marcos dictatorship, he added. Dr. Rene Escalante, Chairman of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, however, cannot issue a more accurate estimate between 3 to 6 thousand attendees. Despite this, magnified news reach overseas media using a collection of images or images from small gatherings in different areas. Does the unpopular EDSA signify that the Filipinos are ready to have a Marcos back in the national post? Would it be Gov. Imee for Senator or Bongbong Marcos for Vice President?

[VIDEO]: Support for the EDSA People Power Commemoration seems to be waning, the NHCP is unable to give a clear answer if the target of 3000 to 6000 people was reached.




The President’s Choice

Du30 skips the 32nd Edsa People Power commemoration and chose to stay in his hometown Davao City. This is the second time the President misses the event. Roque justifies this by saying; “the declaration of February 25 as a national holiday stays,” despite the absence of Duterte in the event.




Essence of EDSA

The 1986 Edsa People Power that topples the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ regime is important in history because it was a  “bloodless” revolution, Malacañang said. This shows the former leader’s sacrifice for the sake of his countrymen. He has the heart not to use the military forces loyal to him to avoid Filipino casualties.



Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest

The recount on March 19 for Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is fast approaching. As this happens, uncertainties arise in many areas. The Supreme Court justices for the first time are ganging up against their Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. They recommend that she take an indefinite leave of absence so as not to influence the proceeding but she insists on staying on. Sereno is an appointee of former President Noynoy Aquino.




Imee Marcos for Senator

Ilocos Norte’s Governor Imee Marcos discloses that the family decides for her to run in the national elections since her brother’s protest can take time. She can very well eye for a Senatorial post. Earlier, Robredo’s Camp hopes that Bongbong Marcos runs for Senator to make the case against the Vice President moot and academic. However, the former Senator clearly stresses that he is pursuing the election protest and will never stop until it is proven how they cheated him.

Jinggoy Out, Noynoy In but with Some Help from the Ombudsman

Ombudsman





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

On almost the same period as Jinggoy Estrada’s release from prison after posting bail, the Ombudsman junked former President Benigno Aquino III’s appeal. This is to dismiss criminal charges against him for his role in the deadly Mamasapano encounter in January 2015. However, the Ombudsman dismissed homicide charges against the former President because of lack of probable cause. So, his fate is not yet clear.






Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: Ex-Sen. Jinggoy Estrada’s release from detention after paying P1.3-M bail.




Justification of the Ombudsman

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales explains that what Aquino did wrong was to allow then-Philippine National Police Chief Alan Purisima to play a major role in the Mamasapano operation. This is despite the official being under preventive suspension.



Free after 3 Years

Meanwhile, after three years of detention, former Senator Jinggoy Estrada walks out of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame. Estrada was accused of plunder and anti-graft and corruption charges. He was released last Sept. 16 around 12:30 p.m. after posting bail of  P1.33-million at the Sandiganbayan.



Family Reunited

Estrada was accompanied by his wife, Precy,. All his children – San Juan Vice Mayor Janella, Jolo, Julian, and Jill, as well as his brother Jude, were also there. He said that he was very happy and elated to be reunited with his family.








Help from his Appointee

The Ombudsman did not deny that Aquino indeed has a criminal liability over the SAF 44’s early demise. However, it is not a homicide case. Therefore, he might avoid being imprisoned unless there’s a more serious verdict. Earlier, he already prepared for the worst. Obviously, what goes around, comes around.

Historical Revision? Tarlac’s Never Again Aquino Paves the Way for Bongbong Marcos

revision





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Initially, it was Marcos Never Again – the slogan of Aquino’s supporters against Bongbong Marcos. Now, right from the hometown of the late Aquino patriarch, Ninoy Aquino, the cry is Aquino Never Again. Is this historical revision or a change of heart?






Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net
[VIDEO]: While unfazed by President Rodrigo Duterte’s tirades against him, former President Benigno Aquino III admitted on Monday that he was not happy with the expletives that he received from his successor for criticizing the administration’s bloody war on illegal drugs.




Block Aquino Movement

Political leaders in Tarlac province swear to block any member of the Aquino clan who seeks any elective post in the 2019 elections. Mayor Benjamin Tesoro said this during the program commemorating the 34th death anniversary of former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. “Never again to an Aquino in public service,” Tesoro said stressed.



Fed-up with the Aquinos

Tesoro explained that after many years that the Aquinos have been in power, nothing beneficial happened to Tarlac.” He was referring to the administrations of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, the late former senator’s son and his wife, the late President Cory Aquino.




Incompetent Ex-Presidents

Tesoro clarified that Ninoy Aquino was not blamed for the shortcomings of his widow, former President Corazon Aquino, and his son, Noynoy, and other Aquinos who served the government. He was different in the sense that he dedicated his life to fighting for his principles.








The President’s Grudge

Noynoy Aquino and the President currently have some kind of heated exchanges. They both criticize their ways in stopping illegal drugs in the country. Ex-President Aquino is a noted blocker of Bongbong Marcos to the executive office while Du30 pushes for Marcos to be his successor. The conflict is indeed an indication that while Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Robredo goes quiet, something else is brewing.




Tarlac leaders vow to stop electing Aquinos

The Tales of Influential Marcos-Aquino Mothers on Son’s Presidency

mothers





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Mothers know best they say. This is a review of what these two influential mothers said about their son’s presidency quest. One was against – and the other is proud to say that it is her ultimate dream.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Former First Lady Imelda Marcos celebrates her 86th birthday. Her wish is for her son, Senator Bongbong Marcos, to run for President.



Imelda Marcos’ Dream

Bongbong Marcos sais that it is the dream of his mother, former first lady, and now Ilocos Rep. Imelda Marcos, for him to become president. “Of course, that’s her dream, he confirmed. If she could nominate me for the position of pope, she would,” he said with a smile. That only shows how Imelda is so certain that her son can make a difference for the welfare of his constituents since she also dreams big for the country’s progress.




Cory Aquino’s Fear

Since the 1987 EDSA revolution that toppled Bongbong’s father, the late Ferdinand Marcos – Binay has been the confidante of the that President Cory Aquino. Binay was aware of the forecast of a Chinese fortune teller that the son of Cory will bring chaos to the country. This is why she was hesitant when the idea flows. She made her fear known in her death bed, said Binay. He was also a witness when Cory said; “Let the people suffer – so that they will hate the Marcoses”.



Mothers with the Same Dream

Mothers generally wish for their children’s success. “My mother generally thinks in political terms because that has been her life,” Bongbong said. He added that one cannot prevent a loving mother from pursuing her aspirations for her beloved son. Bongbong confidently confirmed that he shares his mother’s dream for him to become president. This is why he wants to do more for the country. Currently, he just spent P36 million for his electoral protest against Leni Robredo for the Filipinos’ votes to be properly counted – may it be in favor of him or not. It is good enough just to know the truth of who really won in the 2016 Vice Presidential elections.









The Presidency for Bongbong Marcos

“I have seen the presidency from the different side more than the other people have,” Bongbong said. People normally see just the grandeur of it and the power that the president holds. I wish I could do that, but I have also seen the other side of it, and I have a more balanced idea,” he disclosed. He also explained that anybody can be president, but not everybody can be a good president. “There is no use being a president if you are not going to be a good one. It’s very hard.”
