Military Rule Preference Paves the Way for Bongbong Marcos’ Return


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Congress now approves the President’s request to extend the military rule in Mindanao. In fact, the Mindanao block is unanimous with their Yes votes. Lawmakers there said that when their constituents hear the term Martial Law, they are happy. It simply means peace for them. This is contrary to the black media propaganda against Bongbong Marcos. Now that the recount of his electoral protest against Leni Robredo nears, more truths about his late father’s reign unfold. Thus ending the so-called Marcos stigma.

End of Rebellion and Terrorism

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Wednesday is grateful to the Congress for granting the Presiden’s request to extend martial law in Mindanao for another year. He vows that security forces take this opportunity to rid the region of threats to peace and order. Lorenzana assures Filipino legislators that the military and the police would “end” rebellion and terrorism in Mindanao.  The destruction of the Islamic State-inspired infrastructure and other terror groups in the area is near.

Overwhelming Votes for Military Rule

The Department of National Defense is thankful for the trust and confidence of legislators. The House votes are overwhelming to accede to Du30’s request to keep martial law in place in Mindanao until Dec. 31, 2018. Both chambers of Congress, spent less than half a day to approve such request. The Senate voted 14-4 while the House gave its concurrence through a 226-23 margin.

Opponents’ Fear

Opponents of the extension contend that to allow it could pave the way for the declaration of military rule nationwide. A rise in the number of human rights cases can happen. They also said that there is no basis for the continuing placement of Mindanao, a region of 22 million, under martial law. Salvador Medialdea, the executive secretary of the president, however, reiterates that these fears are not logical because the military and the police respect the Constitution in conducting their operations.

Happy with Martial Law

The Filipino masses are therefore happy with the martial law. Only the media under the control of the government’s detractors are tainting its name. The reactions of Mindanao lawmakers only put much sense to the former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile’s disclosure that the late Ferdinand Marcos used martial law to save the country from communists and terrorists just like today. That is a very welcoming note for Bongbong Marcos’ expected recount victory.

No “Salubungan”

The “Salubungan” where the soldiers meet up with the people is not reenacted this time.This is one of the major changes in this year’s 31st Edsa celebration of the People’s Power revolution. It’s the first under the Duterte administration. The same simple ceremony as the hero’s burial for the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos. It keeps the administration’s bid to make things simple, Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra said.

Bangsamoro Meeting

Abella hints that the president has a surprise during the Edsa celebration. However, the spokesman also talks about the launch of the renewed effort to implement the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro where President Digong is scheduled to attend in Davao City.

When there’s Smoke, there’s Fire at the Edsa Celebration

There are rumors that the Liberal Party prepares to oust the president that coincides with the Edsa celebration. The administration is prepared for this. This is the reason why the official 31st Anniversary is on Feb 24 and not the usual date on the 25th. Aside from the “Walk for Life” gathering of the church prior to the anniversary, there are anti-administration groups that plan to hold rallies. It is not certain, however, if they can beat the pro-administration crowd at Luneta on the 25th.

Rally behind the President at Quirino Grandstand on Feb 25

People who still believe in genuine change that the president aims for gather on Feb 25th at the Quirino Grandstand, Rizal Park in Luneta. This is a way to show support to the policies of the president amidst speculations that some give up on him due to alleged extra-judicial killings. Davao death squad rumors also add up to it. It is interesting to see if the president remains popular after the senate dramas of the anti-administration senators.
