In the past few days, VP Leni Robredo and the so-called yellow media exert vigorous efforts to reactivate alleged Martial Law atrocities. This is for them to rekindle public sentiments that could brainwash people into turning against the government and its preferred heir, Bongbong Marcos. Nonetheless, the messages of common citizens are already becoming more popular than the bitter words of the Vice President. They should know by now that most Filipinos already know the real culprits of the country.

Yellow Media Highlights Martial Law
A known yellow media wrote: On the 45th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law, we look back at some of the bright, idealistic youth leaders whose lives were cut short under the Marcos regime. This coincides with the alleged killings that they blame the President’s drug war of being responsible for. As passionate people, killings can happen anywhere ever since time immemorial. They are just highly publicized by the government’s detractors to hopefully link them to the President’s campaigns.
The Vice President said that only a few Filipinos today have personally lived through the perceived “dark times” by the yellow cult. This was when democracy allegedly died. She added that the nation was compelled to accept its passing quietly. This is through force and fear during her recent “National Day of Protest” speech. Actually, this is not true.
The Power of Social Media
Social media sentiments can dispute this at once. People who pour in their counter-messages to Robredo mostly enjoy the massive benefits of Martial Law during the Marcos Golden Era. LP activists just try to bury them through their media propaganda. Even Robredo’s criticisms of the DSWD were answered by a volunteer worker.
Robredo and her allies must try harder to revive their accusations against the Marcoses. The time has come that the truth finally finds its way out. The lies that they spread cannot be corrected over time. Since the digital age is here now, it will not anymore take another 30 years to put everything in the right perspective.
President Du30 who goes against the rule of oligarchs is now under the LP propaganda attacks. This is clear in the Singapore stunts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. That is not different from the Martial Law history as written by the Yellow Cult. Trillanes thought that he can bring down the Philippine leader by proving that he is a liar. He even enjoys the support of most mainstream media. However, the President already warned that he will do to Trillanes what he has done to him and his family. It’s a game plan. Lie after Lies.
[VIDEO]: President Du30 said that the number of the bank account that Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV used to verify in Singapore is the one he shortened and not the real one as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson.
It reads in most mainstream media that President Du30 admits that he invented the number of the bank account Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. This is after the coverage of the Senator’s trip to Singapore hits media channels. The truth is, the President shortened the actual number as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson. He’s actually amused that his trick worked. That triggered Trillanes to fly immediately to Singapore just to discredit him.
Marcos Regime Victors
The victors of the Marcos Regime demise was led by the houses of Cojuangco and Lopez. They run the biggest media empire before Martial Law. They consummate links with politicians. The Lopezes were experts in propaganda. They know how to mold a nation’s consciousness for its benefit. Trillanes is one good example of a government official who works for his own interest and not for the people.
Marcos now has the Social Media Advantage
The Marcoses never become skilled in, or they are not as appreciative of, the value of propaganda as the Lopezes. When the late Marcos was successful to declare Martial Law, his accusation that the Lopezes led the “extreme Right” that allied itself with the “extreme Left” was not properly circulated. It’s only now that social media exists as a powerful tool for everyone to use for information dissemination that the truth becomes a number game.
The President operates without pretentions. This is the reason why most people love him despite his vulgarity. He vows to destroy Trillanes as he destroys him. The mocking Senator is known for his extreme lies. Du30 simply gives him a taste of his own medicine. The propaganda stints basically signal the beginning of another battle. It will not be surprising that the President would strongly push for a Bongbong Marcos presidency as he sacrifices himself as the bait for the yellow cult.
There are Filipinos who are uninformed and misinformed by media. Seldom are those who hear the certain news and verify the facts by researching to seek for the truth. This is why people in the Philippines now live in a period of inauthenticity and contradictions.

The Vice President prides herself in her advocacy in the world of the marginalized. But in her first radio show, she was surprised that malnutrition is prevalent among the poor. She said that her experience of coming face to face with the poor and malnourished is unique. This shows how detached she is with reality. Therefore, Leni Robredo portrays herself as inauthentic.
On the other hand, the impeachment complaint filed by Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano against the President was quickly dismissed by the House committee on justice because it is insufficient in substance. It failed when Alejano shows that he had no personal knowledge of the acts which he accuses the President of. His sources are news reports, particularly by Rappler and ABS-CBN.
Gone are the days that investigative journalism is reliable. Journalists are considered as bearers of truth and facts in the past. Now, Rappler and its cohorts have, give the main stream medium a bad name. They are sources of black media propaganda at the present time.
Social Media as Neutralizer
The internet is blamed as the cause of the decline in the power of traditional mass media. But on the contrary, mass media can be popularized by it if they remain authentic to its ethic of fairness and neutrality. People have no choice but to migrate to social media as their sources of information. It is easy to lose credibility in this avenue. Once a medium does not carry the true sentiments of the people, it can face serious attacks online. This is why after decades of suffering from black propaganda, the Marcos family rises above their enemies. PDu30 also is untouchable because of this.
The president is disgusted by the Amnesty International’s report saying that cops were being paid P8,000 (US$161) to P15,000 (US$302) per dead drug offender. No cash incentive is allegedly given for arrests to ensure that operations always result in the death of a drug suspect. This is a very demonic accusation by a human rights group, just like during the Marcos regime.

[VIDEO]: MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday slammed an Amnesty International report which claims that Philippine National Police (PNP) is paying policemen and vigilantes for every drug killings.
The president only allocates 150 million pesos for intelligence funds for police anti-drug operations. They are used by undercover cops to “buy” drugs from pushers for evidence to catch them. It is the job of the police to arrest illegal drug offenders. It makes no sense for the president to give them an extra incentive for every death. Doing so is crazy, the president said.
Drug War Deaths
Since July 2016, police report more than 7,000 deaths in the war on drugs. More than 2,000 are legal police operations, but the majority are allegedly vigilante-style killings with possible links to illegal drugs. These are considered “deaths under investigation” by the PNP.
Martial Law Deaths
3,257 is the number of deaths allegedly killed by the military during President Ferdinand Marcos’ martial law regime. This is for a ten-year period from 1975 to 1985. This quoted figure is cited to support the complaint that the military under Marcos is guilty of committing human rights violations. Terror and brutality describe the martial rule through media propaganda.
The accuracy of the 3,257 figure of martial law deaths is highly disputed. Serious doubt is cast on the sources of the figure.The possible return of a key member of the Marcos family, particularly Bongbong Marcos is feared by their political enemies. His electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is still ongoing. Digong’s adapting the late Marcos’ winning strategies in governance also faces the same counter-resistance to topple his leadership. On top of that, his endorsement of the younger Marcos in the executive level makes him a more viable target for demonization propaganda.
