YouTube video by Imee Marcos Happy birthday, Atty Larry Gadon!
Escaping the Senate
Senator Imee Marcos announces with excitement that she’s making the most of the day by excaping boring proceedings at the Senate. She opts to join Atty. Larry Gadon’s birthday party instead. The tough-talking lawyer is not only a long-time Marcos loyalist but he is also the Marcos family’s great defender. The senator’s presence is definitely worth the while. Escaping the Senate during idle times should not be a big deal.
Atty. Gadon is definitely worth Senator Marcos’ escape from the Senate because of his dedication to educating people as to what really the truths are when it comes to the Marcoses. For one, he is very vocal in explaining the controversial issues on the Senator’s educational credentials. His visibility on social media made him an efficient speaker for the Marcos family. No one can explain things better than him because of the direct knowledge and his exceptional personality. Marcos avoids mentioning his age because he is ageless for them.
Celebrating Life’s Events
There are many things that are more important than work. Although money is essential to sustain the needs of daily living, there must be a balance between work and personal tasks. One can’t be happy nor successful if the balance is off. Like what Steve Jobs implies on his death bed – that relationships with friends and family members matter the most.

The recently concluded May 13, 2019 election may be anomalous for some but it is at least believable for BBM or Bongbong Marcos. His thorough Senate campaign for his sister, Imee Marcos is a success. On the other hand, Calabarzon police director P/Brig. Gen.l Edward Carranza’s 22 policemen are found guilty for the murder of Atty. Glenn Chong’s aide, Red Santillan and his companion. They have a double murder case charges. Calabarzon Provincial Director P/Col. Lou Evangelista, and acting Cainta police chief P/Lt. Col. Panlito Naganag will face the obstruction of justice charges. This is for fabricating information on the fatal shooting incident. The same goes with Carranza.

Thanking Supporters for Imee Marcos’ Senate Win
Bongbong Marcos said; Thank you to everyone who campaigned, voted and are watching the vote! None of this would have been possible without your support! Imee Marcos also said this; My heartfelt gratitude for your trust and support. Thank you, we won because of you.
Atty. Glenn Chong’s New Ally
Atty. Glenn Chong may not be successful in his Senatorial bid but one thing is certain. He has found a vital ally in Team Marcos. His media exposure during the election campaign period as a clean poll advocate really benefits BBM’s electoral protest. He deserves their alliance for a better government in the near future. Chong is seen to take up a very important post under the Marcoses’ new era. He expresses his gratitude to the group in a Facebook message.
Punishing the Culprits
The defeat of Atty. Chong seems to open new doors for his fights. Take the case of Red Santillan. The NBI said that the December 2018 shooting of Santillan and his companion Gessamyn “Minmin” Casing in Cainta, Rizal was a rubout and not a firefight, as claimed by the police. “The severity of the police officers’ acts indicated a calculated pursuit of a decision to kill Red and Minmin,” the NBI said in an April 21 transmittal letter released to the media on Monday.
Santillan died from 21 gunshot wounds in different parts of his body, while Casing succumbed to two, according to the autopsy results. Citing forensic reports and witness testimonies, the NBI said the victims were defenseless and did not use firearms. This is contrary to the claim of the policemen who said the two fired at them first, prompting them to shoot back.
Eliminating the Police Scalawags
It added that policemen involved in the incident made a conscious decision for a “sure kill,” using their short and long firearms against unarmed civilians.The NBI also recommended that the policemen be charged for planting of evidence, noting that the firearms recovered by the police from Santillan’s vehicle tested negative for the fingerprints of either victims.

The recent fact-checks of some media recently failed a great deal. Half-truths can also be misleading. Bongbong Marcos might not be the author of the Free Education bill but he proposed it. According to the Senate of the Philippines’ 17th Congress website, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr. pushed for free college education in all the state colleges and universities in the country.
[VIDEO]: Many senators may have claimed to propose such bill but it is already recorded in the minds of the public that Bongbong Marcos initiated it first in 2015.
Support for Public School Teachers
Likewise, Marcos also called for increased support for public school teachers. He said that it is a crucial factor in improving the country’s educational system. Marcos stressed that education is one of the most important services that the government can provide to people. He worked for possible enactment of measures for this during his last term in the Senate but the legislative agenda at that time was not able to accommodate Marcos’ proposals.
Electoral Protest Delayed the Bill
Marcos vowed to continue this quest when he becomes Vice President but his electoral protest against the presumptive VP Leni Robredo is still ongoing. However, his proposal was endorsed and authored by other Senators when he was no longer in the position. The bill becomes a law in August 2017. It aims to provide students from state colleges and universities with free education.
Screenshot of the Senate Press Release
It is actually hard to miss this kind of press release if the objective of a media entity is to tell the truth. It is very clear that the country’s news networks have the hand of anti-Marcos oligarchs. Here’s the screenshot and link of the said Press Release:
The Bill’s Authors and Co-Authors
The authors of the bill signed on January 23, 2017, were Senators Recto, Villanueva, Ejercito, Aquino IV, Gatchalian, Pangilinan, Angara, and Legarda. The bill’s passage into law also shows that other senators were made co-authors. All in all, the bill had 12 authors: senators Ralph Recto, Joel Villanueva, Joseph Victor Ejercito, Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV, Sherwin Gatchalian, Francis Pangilinan, Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, Loren Legarda, Leila de Lima, Cynthia Villar, Juan Miguel Zubiri, and Richard Gordon.
The Aquino and Marcos rivalry still exists these days. As one of the co-authors of Marcos’ proposed bill, Bam Aquino receives criticisms in claiming that he is the author of the bill that Marcos initiated. The feud has come a long way and it generally delays the provision of laws that would benefit the general public. Too bad that the mainstream media is more interested in “Who’s Who or Who’s What” than for the common good.
The resignation of PCOO ASec Mocha Uson is not a surprise to Bongbong Marcos. He knows that she is never comfortable at her vacated post because the government’s detractors are always attacking her on various issues. It may be sad for Marcos to see a friend goes out of public service, he wishes her well and hopes that she can find a position where she can be happy. Previously, the sexy personality announces that the fight is not over yet for her. Uson mentions that she will bring her case to the Congress or the Senate. This prompts people to believe that she might run for Senator or Congresswoman during the mid-term elections.
[VIDEO]: This week we bid farewell to a friend in public service, and we also welcomed new friends to our circle of service.
The executive branch did not pressure Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson to vacate her post. Although her resignation is expected to be accepted by President Rodrigo Duterte. Uson was in the United States earlier this week as part of the Philippine delegation to the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Presidential Assistant, Bong Go said Uson sent her letter of resignation last Tuesday, October 2, and is already in the President’s office. Uson can run for the Congress or the Senate if she wants to. She has around 5 million followers via social media.
The Ultimate Sacrifice
Uson announces her resignation at the Senate as a “sacrifice” in exchange for the approval of the Presidential Communications Operations Office’s (PCOO) budget. Asked if the resignation was connected to reports that Uson would be running for senator in the upcoming elections, Go said the announcement would come from Uson herself. He advises everyone to wait for her further announcement.
What Prompted the Resignation?
Go did not elaborate on the circumstances leading up to the resignation of Uson, but he said that Malacañang wishes her well. Prior to her resignation, Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Director General Harold Clavite publicly asked Uson to step down from her post citing her failure to attend plenary deliberations on the PCOO budget.
Robredo’s Camp Happy with Uson’s Decision
The camp of the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo said that the country did not lose anything in the resignation of Communications Assistant Secretary Uson. Gutierrez, however, warned Uson that resigning from a government post does not exonerate her from liability over her previous actions. Robredo had been at the receiving end of Uson’s sharp criticisms in the past, at one time calling her stupid and idiot.
The Congress and Senate’s Real VP
Uson also calls Robredo “fake vice president” and identifies the former Senator Marcos as the real VP. Many Filipinos believe that the brave lady can even be more powerful without the restrictions from the government lawmakers who are critical of her. She is free to disclose everything that she knows and act in ways she deems appropriate. Another thing, she definitely establishes a good support by SAP Go and President Duterte himself aside from Marcos.
Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson said she resigns from her post. This is to aid the passage of her agency’s budget. She warns critics that her fight is not yet over. She makes the sacrifice so that the PCOO budget can be passed. The avid supporter of the President also tells her detractors not to make the mistake of thinking that they won. She did not resign because she’s scared. Uson just wants to have a fair chance when she faces them may it be n the Senate or in the Congress. This triggers speculations that she might be running for Senator or Congresswoman. As what Presidential Secretary Bong Go said; Just wait for her announcement.
[VIDEO]: PCOO ASec Mocha Uson resigns after the lower House holds the agency’s budget because of her absence. She vows to bring her fight to the Senate and Congress.
Deferred PCOO Budget
The House of Representatives had deferred action on the budget of the Presidential Communications Operations Office after Uson failed to attend budget deliberations. She told a separate budget hearing at the Senate Wednesday that she missed the House hearings because she was at the United Nations General Assembly.
The Palace’s Consent
President Duterte is likely to accept Uson’s resignation, said Special Assistant to the President, Christopher “Bong” Go. We respect her resignation and we thank Asec. Mocha for her service to the Duterte government. She was a good ally, he added. Meanwhile, Presidential Chief Legal Counsel comments that it is Usons selfless act.
Congress Politics in Budget Deliberations
Uson alleged that several left-leaning congressmen were deliberately stalling the PCOO’s budge. This is after her interview with some Lumad, who claimed they were being “used” by the left against Duterte. She also slammed the lawmakers concerned for politicizing budget deliberations. Pichay also scolds top PCOO officials led by Sec. Martin Andanar. It is not known why Uson’s presence is a must when her boss himself is always present.
Pichay and other lawmakers were upset after Andanar earlier committed to bringing Uson at the House plenary. This is to personally answer the queries of several legislators who wanted an explanation of her involvement in various controversial activities. Her personal blog particularly is the target of the inquiry.
Freedom of Speech
Uson believes that some lawmakers use their position to intimidate government agencies who are not in line with their personal agenda. She previously apologizes over a video about federalism that features dancing and another clip that upsets the deaf community. Her enemies always demand freedom of speech but they simply can’t give that to Uson.
Actor, Robin Padilla cannot understand why ordinary people have to comply to authorities at once upon the invitation for questioning for a certain case. While lawmakers like Senator Antonio Trillanes IV are also lawbreakers. The so-called showbiz bad boy was outside of the Senate building, where the lawmaker has been staying in protest of President Rodrigo Du30’s order voiding his amnesty and directing his arrest. As Senator Trillanes’ classmate, Padilla is willing to lend his balls to Trillanes if he does not have it necessary to face the court-martial against him as a military man.
[VIDEO]: ROBIN PADILLA TUTULONG SA PAG ARESTO KAY TRILLANES NAG-AABANG SA LABAS NG SENADO.
Padilla’s Call to Senator Trillanes
Padilla is calling to Senator Trillanes to face the military court. He has been camping at the Senate grounds since the 4th of September. Despite his work, Padilla keeps doing this just to see Trillanes be brave and face the case against him.
Void Ab Initio (Void in the First Place)
With Du30 declaring Trillanes’ amnesty void ab initio, he orders him to be apprehended. This is for the uprisings he led in 2003 and in 2007 against the government. Trillanes remains defiant, however. He asserts that with his amnesty the criminal cases he faced was already dismissed. Furthermore, as he is already a civilian he could no longer be placed under court-martial. Arsenio Andolong, however, explains that with Du30 voiding his amnesty, he has been reverted as a Navy lieutenant. This is because he still hasn’t produced the copy of the original amnesty application.
Andolong is saying that it seems that only Trillanes has the copy of the original amnesty application. There were forms that were signed but they cannot locate the original application. They also don’t know if Trillanes physically submitted the application to Malacañang or the temporary committee. Although the troubled Senator showed his alleged amnesty application, he also failed to show any acknowledgment that it was received by the concerned agency.
Detention while in Trial
Defense officials are saying that Trillanes must be tried by court-martial while the search for the missing form continues. In the cases of Bong Revilla and Jinggoy Estrada, they were tried for plunder. This is despite either of them being from the military. While Revilla is still to be freed, Estrada is already free.
An Amnesty is a Conditional Pardon
Trillanes took an oath of allegiance to the Constitution on Jan 27, 2011. This is 94 other military men. The chief of the DND internal audit service, Patrick Rubin explains that the court-martial doesn’t lose jurisdiction over him despite being granted amnesty and separated from military service.
Atty. Glenn Chong, the crusader for clean election is thankful to Senate President Tito Sotto for his systematic process of officially asking for the election logs in question during an official. This gives him the opportunity to trace them technically as an IT expert. His solid evidence for the alleged fraudulent 2016 automated election supports Bongbong Marcos’ initial protest on the integrity of the previous election. In a press conference, Chong announces the next senate hearing for the same issue but different forum. He swears that he would face the challenge with utmost readiness. Many people are inspired to take this matter into their hands by knocking on the Comelec’s gate and to be physically present while Chong takes care of broadcasting his revelations with hardcore proofs.
[VIDEO]: Atty. Glenn Chong on Manipulated Transmission of Vote 2016 Elections press briefing
Slapping the Commission of Election
Chong just slaps the Comelec with his findings during the recent Senate hearing. The videos of such important event can’t lie. They are circulated in all social media outlets by political enthusiasts. Some media did a little bit of broadcasting through online networks but barely mentioned this important development through their major channels. Others are completely quiet about it. Nevertheless, despite suspected influences by the opposition, people online made the news viral by sharing intensively. Many complained that their related posts were classified as spam. They were later republished after Chong circulated a law that can make them liable for suppressing freedom of speech and expressions. The people insist that like during the election, they have the right to be updated on their votes that were lost during the process.
Logical Trail of Evidence
The following logic with hard evidence can’t be denied by the COMELEC:
Early transmissions of results from Libon, Albay.
Transmission of election results from 459 precincts to Ragay, Camarines Norte, VP Leni Robredo’s bailiwicks.
Audit logs from the VCM Machines of Ragay did not show that there were such activities.
DNS Server Records show that the results were successfully transmitted to Ragay.
DNS transmissions that had no traces from the Audit logs of the VCMs came from fake or cloned system manipulated overseas.
The Social Media Powered News
The news about Chong’s presentation went viral. Facebook was quick enough to spam most of the posts. However, they also bring them back once a complaint or verification is done. There were speculations that an ex-consultant of the Vice President’s office now working at the Social Media giant could have made the spamming spree. However, it is a normal process of FB to temporarily suspend an account if there are many reports received from such posts. The lapses can be charged to inexperienced reviewers.
Chong can’t help but be critical of Robredo. He may not be an official lawyer of Bongbong Marcos but his findings support Marcos’ electoral protest against the Vice President. Liberal Party was his original party. He discontinued his membership with the so-called yellow group. He can’t swallow the fact that an incompetent politician in the person of former President Benigno Aquino IV made it to the presidency.
Massive Call to Support Chong
Right after Chong’s Senate popularity, some groups of Marcos’ loyalists gathered in protest at the Comelec to put their act together and declare Marcos as the real Vice President of the country. However, this is easier said than done especially when there’s a gag order to both camps. Therefore, they are urging everyone to support Chong during the next hearing on August 6, 2018. He expects the Comelec and the opposition stalwarts to be tough on him. He confidently explains the magnitude of his research work. That can only nail the opponent despite their efforts to destroy his reputation.
All Filipinos always have political preference may they be in social or mainstream media. The recent proliferation of fake news Senate hearing distinguishes false information from opinions. Bloggers insist that democracy allows them to voice out their side of the story regardless of the other side. This is not the case with journalism as a profession. Analyzing the outcome, it is clear that the Du30-Marcos supporters come to terms with the tandem despite not voting for the same during the 2016 election.
[VIDEO]: Napahanga si Erwin Tulfo kung paano hinarap ng mga bloggers ng Thinking Pinoy na si RJ Nieto at Asec. Mocha Uson ng Mocha Uson Blog ang mga tanong sa kanila kahapon sa Senado. Ang saloobin ni Erwin Tulfo, pakinggan!
Erwin Tulfo is an avid supporter of President Du30. He also speaks highly of Bongbong Marcos. He praises social media practitioners TP and ASec Mocha Uson for educating the Senators who are obviously not in touch with the real world.
[VIDEO]: KAREN DAVILA GUSTONG IPAHIYA SI MOCHA AT THINKINGPINOY PERO SUPALPAL KAY ATTY TRIXIE
TV Anchor Karen Davila cannot believe that her guest Atty. Trixie actually defended Mocha Uson based on her legal knowledge. She explained that there’s no difference between an elective or appointed government official when it comes to business ethics. Uson was hired by the President because of her media influence. She is just being herself.
[VIDEO]: MOCHA USON SINAGOT ANG KAYABANGAN NI KAREN DAVILA PANOORIN
Mocha Uson retaliates to Karen Davila’s criticism on her by saying that bloggers have the right to express and share their opinions with their followers just like mainstream media personalities. This should not change once they change or got a new job.
Bongbong Marcos: Bloggers’ Opinions are Great Equalizers
[VIDEO]: Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr says his family has long suffered from fake news. He also believes it is readers’ responsibility to avoid blogs and posts they think are making false claims.
Bongbong Marcos’ family suffers from the fake news for more than 30 years. However, he cannot find it in his heart to feel bitter about it. He is just thankful that finally, there’s a medium that allows the voice of the majority to be heard.
Senator Grace Poe is the Chair of the Fake News Senate hearing. She describes the difference between fake news, opinions and other information found both online and offline. Senator Tito Sotto admits triggering the event because of the “Silent No More” blog destroying pro-Duterte Senators that was allegedly masterminded by his LP colleagues. Senator Manny Pacquiao takes part in the discussion on how to regulate misinformation if it is possible to do so. Uson and Nieto of Thinking Pinoy actually voted for ex-Senator and now DFA Secretary Allan Peter Cayetano for VP. However, they are for the recount because it is the right thing to do.
Fr. Jose Antonio Diaz, the trusted confidant of the Tallano clan’s wealth made him the main negotiator and trustee of their gold. Fr. Diaz hired the services of then ATTY. FERDINAND E. MARCOS. The Tallanos paid commission to Fr. Diaz and Marcos in gold, 30% From the principal of 640, 000 metric tons. In 1949 both were in the list of the richest men in the world. When Fr. Diaz died in 1974 all gold became the legendary Marcos hidden wealth. This was after he signed a Letter of Instruction to use them for humanity. That is now referred to as Marcos wealth that detractors labeled as ill-gotten.
[VIDEO]: Imelda Romualdez Marcos is known for her extravagance, beauty, shoe collection and power. This was her interview in the “Powerhouse.”
In spite of this broadcast by one of the biggest media in the country that shows the shipping documents of the gold, most media still call them ill-gotten even if it’s not under the Marcoses’ name. That is why they always win all corruption cases. Despite all these, most mainstream media still refer to the gold reserves a Marcos’ alleged stolen wealth which is very misleading.
[VIDEO]: WEALTH for HUMANITY, Ferdinand Marcos’ Gold
This video coincides with Imelda Marcos’ story. The World Bank and its sister organization, IMF (International Monetary Fund) are special organizations that sit on top of the world’s wealth. They are hidden in secrecy. 400,000 metric tons of them are in the Central Bank. 200,000 metric tons are in the Union Bank of Switzerland. The rest are shipped to more than 200 countries. Former First Lady Imelda Marcos is the keeper of the bill of lading.
[VIDEO]: Philippine senators have grilled the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos on her claims that her husband owned much of Philippine’s treasures.
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos begged the Senate to help her implement her late husband’s Last Will and Testament. The wealth needs to be lifted out from the trustees’ jurisdiction to manifest his intention for the Marcos Humanitarian Foundation to help the economy and the poor or the Filipino people from their agony and suffering due to poverty. The President currently ordered the Congress and the Senate to look into this but no updates are given yet on this matter.
[VIDEO]: Bandila also questioned Bongbong Marcos if he met the banker, Michael de Guzman to withdraw all deposits from his family’s Swiss accounts.
Regardless of the intimidating press interviews calling some of his wealth allegedly stolen, Bongbong Marcos is still sticking into what is legal. Some journalists here are obviously believing in the hearsay rather than dig out the truth from the official documentation that would prove otherwise. He has nothing to be sorry of, he said. History cannot be changed. Let it judge his father. He admits that only God can’t make mistakes. He is proud to be a Marcos for the opportunity to continue serving the people.
President Du30 said that there’s no evidence that the huge amount of Marcoses’ Swiss Account deposits are illegally acquired. It was just referred to as ill-gotten wealth because of the basis of their government salaries. Meaning to say that inheritance, wealth acquired prior to public service and other business income are not yet included.
It’s about time that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV be made aware of the people’s pulse regarding his behavior in the Senate. He is confident that Senator Richard Gordon cannot get at least three Senatorial signatures for his ethics complaint against him. Trillanes dares him by saying that he’s not even afraid of the President.

[VIDEO]: Gordon to file ethics complaint vs Trillanes
Carpio and Paolo Duterte’s Invitation
Trillanes wanted to invite both President Rodrigo Duterte’s son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, and son-in-law, lawyer Manases-Carpio after they were mentioned to be behind the so-called Davao Group. Carpio is the husband of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. Gordon just replied; You may do so! But Trillanes continues to make general accusations that he cannot prove.
Not a Cockpit of Gossips
Gordon told Trillanes to refrain from making general statements that he cannot prove. This is because the Senate is not a cockpit of gossips. Instead of calming down, Trillanes responded by criticizing the way Gordon handles the committee hearing. He calls it names and criticizes Senator Tito Sotto as well.
Out of Order and Tune
Senator Gordon firmly said that Senator Trillanes is out of order but he can’t stop his mouth from opening. He even thinks that most Senators are on his side. Worst, he acts like the people’s hero when most Filipinos are wondering while he’s not kicked out yet with his ungentle man approaches.
Too bad for Trillanes, Gordon said he will pursue his ethics complaint against him. “He has done that consistently. I already forgave him the first time. He even came to my office and apologized then he did it to Mr. Zubiri. Then he was trying to do it to Cayetano, he was trying to turn off the microphone,” Gordon said.
