Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Recount Now Progresses to Negros Occidental


By: Elena Grace Flores

According to Atty. Glenn Chong, Bongbong Marcos’ protest is nearing its end. The revision in Iloilo and Camarines Sur is almost finished. Furthermore, 1284 ballot boxes are being retrieved for Negros Oriental. This is the last province of the 3 provinces set by PET for the recount. If Justice Caguioa’s timetable would be followed, the revision should be finished by November. Depending on the numbered of recovered votes in his favor, he can then decide to continue to other places or stop to fast-track the decision.

Checking the Validity of Marcos’ Heavy Losses in Negros Occidental

Negros Oriental is one of the 20 provinces that is being protested. This is as Dumaguete City Election Officer Gildu Agoncillo discloses. On the records, Leni Robredo had 255,000 votes while Marcos loses heavily with only 66,000 votes. This is the biggest difference all throughout the country by the percentage. Hence, Negros Oriental is third on the list of the three pilot provinces.

Atty. Chong’s Analysis of the Protest

Atty. Chong thinks that we will finally know how much votes will Robredo still have over Marcos’. That is if there would still be any left. Furthermore, he thinks that if we get to this point, Marcos will have a substantial recovery. The protest will then continue, as the second stage.

Procedural Verdict

At the second stage, If Marcos completely overtakes Robredo’s votes that she can’t take back with her counter-protest, he can then withdraw the protest on the remaining provinces so it won’t take more time. Because, at this point, the show will be over for Robredo and the yellows.

Justification of Robredo’s Camp

According to Robredo’s legal counsel, Emil Maranon, If the complaint was dismissed then there would be no need to do the recount on the 17 other provinces. The recount of the 17 provinces depends on the recount of the pilot provinces. They are still hoping for a miracle to happen.

Election Hearing Development

According to Chong, Not only was the votes stolen from the people but this syndicate or the Smartmatic-Comelec connivance insults Filipinos. Consequently, Senator Koko Pimentel says that Smartmatic would have to answer on who among their employees were watching porn using the DNS server while the votes were being counted. That’s how lightly he is taking the country’s security measures during elections.

Vice Presidential protestant against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo, Bongbong Marcos gives his actual updates on the case during the interview with Erwin Tulfo. Marcos said that the Supreme Court that sits as the PET must make a decision on what to do with those questionable ballots. He also has high hopes that the new Chief Justice Teresita De Castro can set directions on his protest during the short 5 weeks of her term before her retirement.

The Supreme Court to Decide on the Questionable Ballots

The Supreme Court is beginning a manual recount of the votes. However, Bongbong Marcos calls the PET’s attention to the questionable ballots. Some have been doused only recently, while several audit logs are missing.

Wet Ballots

Starting the recount from Bato Camarines Sur, there were already problems. 4 out of 42 voting precincts had the ballots wet. Consequently, the ballots are illegible. Furthermore, 38 precincts in Bato have the audit logs missing.

Robredo’s Demands

The camp of VP Robredo wants the PET to have the ballots where the ovals are shaded less than 50% but higher than 25% to be segregated. Robredo’s lawyers are also asking the PET to immediately resolve the April 18 resolution. They want the PET to reconsider the decision of a 50% threshold for vote validity.

Macalintal Dares Marcos on the Use of Ballot Images

Macalintal is now challenging Marcos. The picture images of the ballots should be used to determine the real results of the previous election. With the Comelec’s affirmation that the 25% threshold was used, Marcos’ claim that the threshold wasn’t used in the 2016 elections is now exposed as false, said the veteran lawyer. He also comments that Marcos is afraid to know the truth.

Atty. Rodriguez Blasts the Comelec’s Connivance with Robredo

Marcos’ lawyer, Vic Rodriguez is now calling the Comelec as a co-conspirator of VP Robredo, in response to Macalintal. Furthermore, Atty. Glenn Chong reveals the information that at least one SD card had been tampered with upon checking. Chong continues that with each card containing 500 votes, by switching machines, the 5000 extra SD cards could have been used to produce 2 million votes in favor of the victor during the 2016 VP race.

Shallow-Minded Media Feasted on PDu30’s Davao Rape Joke Again


By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 is making another joke. The mainstream media never failed to report this right on the spot. Commentaries loom. Du30 humorously said that the reason why the incidence rate of rape in Davao City is high is that there are plenty of pretty girls in Davao. Because of that, the President is under fire again. Malacañang, however, defends the president and says that we shouldn’t take seriously the jokes of the president. This shows how shallow some news sources are. Instead of covering Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo, which is a public interest, they are more into petty things.

The President’s Visayan Humor on Rape

The president is saying that as long as there are plenty of beautiful women, rape cases will always be high. He said so in Bisaya in Mandaue City on August 30.

Statistics of Rape Cases in Davao

With the data from the Philippine National Police, Davao ranks highest in the number of rape cases. There have been 42 cases in the 2nd quarter of 2018. With the PNP data on index crimes from 2010 to 2015 Davao City also ranks 2nd in the number of rape cases with 843 counts.

Many Media is Still a Stranger to the President’s Joke

Du30 can’t help but keep on making misogynistic remarks and making light of rape. For that, he faces heavy criticism. Back when he was mayor of Davao City he even joked about raping an Australian missionary as she was very beautiful. She was killed in a prison riot. This joke of his has caused an uproar. The media should know by now the nature of the President’s humor.

Can’t Change the Leader’s Manner

Malacañang, however, sees no problem with the President’s behavior. They say that it is just a part of his manner of speech and Most Filipinos understand his humor, especially the masses. This is actually one of the reasons why he is so popular. The majority of the Filipinos can relate to him.

The Presidential Daughter’s Point of View

As Mayor Sara Du30-Carpio explains,  the incidence of rape has decreased by 20.83%. There were 120 cases during the first half of 2017 and on the first half of 2018 it went down to 95. She is claiming that this is due to the government programs about teaching children on the topic of sexual abuse. And to all the antagonists of Davao City government, she is asking what have they done to help.

Bongbong Marcos is one with Gov. Imee to Move on from 1986 but Not on his Protest


By: Elena Grace Flores

The troubled Vice President, Leni Robredo once urged Bongbong Marcos to move on from his alleged defeat during the 2016 VP race. Marcos replied by saying that he cannot do so because his election protest is still ongoing. He is determined more than ever, to restore democracy through a clean and honest election. However, he agrees with his sister, Gov. Imee Marcos to move on from the martial law issues. The Marcos regime then was already toppled in 1986. It’s done, he added.

Youtube video by

[VIDEO]: Answering questions on the issue of his father’s strongman rule, former senator Bongbong Marcos said that the proposed abolition of the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) is proof that their critics should “move on.”

Macalintal’s Criticism against Marcos

Macalintal is criticising Bongbong Marcos about not being able to “move on” from his electoral protest. To quote Macalintal “A very childish attitude of an election loser who cannot accept defeat in good grace. Such a statement is so unbecoming of a man who projects himself as highly capable to lead as vice president of the country,” Macalintal added.

Protest Blame Game?

It seems to Macalintal that Marcos is just looking for someone to blame for losing in the VP election. He is so confident that he would win the elections. First, he blames the Comelec as a conspirator of the Robredo camp in an alleged electoral fraud. Macalintal adds, “After accepting the integrity of the automated election system, Marcos is now blaming the alleged bias of Associate Justice Alfredo Caguioa against him and in favor of Robredo,” Macalintal insinuates. To note, Marcos never accepted the integrity of the 1986 election but agrees with the PET to set aside the issue to fast-track the recount.


False Confidence

With Marcos only being able to accept closure if he wins the protest, Macalintal further criticizes him. “But, sorry to say, he will stay put or remain without moving because he will never win his election protest since nobody wins an election protest on the mere allegation that the judge is biased in favor of the other party,” he adds. Furthermore, Macalintal also points out that with the results of recounts of the ballots tallying with the electronic results, no one ever won an election protest even back on the 2010 automated elections. This theory of Macalintal is already proven wrong by Atty. Glenn Chong. Besides, Marcos’ case is the first protest at the national level to reach the recount stage.


Enrile Defends the Late Ferdinand Marcos

Senator Enrile also explains in a separate interview that atrocities during the Marcos era should be attributed to him. He is saying that he knows more than the Anti-Marcos media propagandists. What he says are the actual facts. The previous victors just wrote their history to highlight their supposed sacrifices for their own political advantage.

Marcos is Thankful to Supporters

Marcos is grateful for the support and love from those loyal to him. His supporters are staying by his side as his electoral protest is still pending. Currently, a pro-Marcos Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Teresita de Castro has been appointed by President Rodrigo Du30. She is only two months away from retirement. If Robredo managed to be VP overnight with the aid of Smartmatic, Marcos can also be the leader he is destined to be in the blink of an eye.

Bongbong Marcos is the Next Golden Age President when Election Protest is Favored


By: Elena Grace Flores

The former senator Bongbong Marcos states that he does not take President Du30’s succession statement “so seriously.” Although, he points out that the chief executive is fully aware that Filipinos need his help. “I know he is still needed by this country,” he said. Marcos stresses that consumer interest will also have to be on the front seat of his administration. That is why former President and now Speaker of the House, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s leadership in the Congress is crucial as the champion for the economy. Marcos can become President as per Du30’s promise when he wins the election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. This is very likely to happen after the appointment of the new Supreme Court Chief Justice, Teresita de Castro.

Downplaying but Ready

Bongbong Marcos is ready to step up as president and will prioritize good governance if he succeeds Du30. But he still is downplaying the President’s remark for him to be a Malacanang Successor.

The Economy is a Priority

The improvement of the economy with the consumer’s interest in mind is an objective. “I think the President is doing all of this tongue-in-cheek,” Bongbong Marcos comments. This is an answer of the president’s remark that if Marcos will be guaranteed to succeed him, he would willingly give up the presidency.

Toppling Corruption

“Return of good governance.” That is Marcos’ answer when asked what would be his top three priorities if he becomes president. He is saying that there is no need to name three things, just that we have to return to good governance. This despite the issues of massive graft and corruption that toppled his father.

PCGG Status

The Presidential Commission on Good Governance, created by Cory Aquino, had the sole purpose of prosecuting the Marcoses. It aims to recover the vast amount of allegedly ill-gotten wealth from the Marcos family and their allies. Cases have been filed by the PCGG but to this day none has prospered, as Marcos explains.

Moving on after Election Protest

Now, the Congress is now planning to abolish the PCGG. This is taken by the Marcoses as a sign that the country has to move on. Imee Marcos made a speech about moving on to which she was criticized by Bam Aquino. Bongbong Marcos insists that they have nothing to be sorry for. Instead, Marcos believes that it is their duty to continue on his father’s blueprints and lead the country once more.
