While Vice President Leni Robredo is busy for her alleged anti-poverty media stunts, Bongbong Marcos continues to work with the Du30 administration on the Mamasapano case. He investigated it first when he was still a senator. However, the ex-leader in question, BS Aquino ignored all hearings. In his capacity as a private entity, he assures the widows of the US-trained police commandos killed in the Mamasapano massacre three years ago that they are not alone in their battle for justice. They may be “Fallen but indeed not Forgotten,”
[VIDEO]: There’s no stopping Bongbong Marcos’quest to gather bits and pieces to clarify lapse in the chain of command that caused the demise of the SAF 44.
Keeping the Memory Alive
The widows, hold a public showing in Zamboanga City of the documentary, “Fallen Not Forgotten.” Caelistis Productions produces the documentary in memory of the SAF 44. Lawyer Felipe Cruz and director Sally Jo Bellosillo are the producers. It features interviews with survivors of “Oplan: Exodus,” the SAF operation to get Marwan on Jan. 25, 2015. The show is also available in movie houses at 34 Robinsons and SM shopping malls across the country for a limited time.
Marcos' "Fallen Not Forgotten" Video
Prior to the Jan. 25 3rd year Mamasapano massacre anniversary, Bongbong Marcos features his second video series. The title is "Fallen Not Forgotten" as a tribute to the unsung heroes. This is accessible via Youtube. It gives assurance to their surviving family members that the process may be slow but it is ongoing.
Chain of Command Lapse
While charges are filed against people who they believe were responsible for the unfortunate event, the progress is not substantial. These include the former President Benigno Aquino III and former PNP Director General Alan Purisima. Marcos believes that the major factor in the debacle lies in the chain of command lapse. Aside from making Aquino accountable if proven to be at fault, former Senator Marcos calls for the peace process to be finalized. This would prevent Filipinos from killing each other, he said.
Bongbong Marcos’ election protest determines the “rise or fall” of Vice President Leni Robredo at the expense of Marcos. The results of the recount in the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental are the key factors of his protest. Robredo’s lawyer, Atty. Bernadette Sardillo said that if the recount in these pilot provinces of Marcos shows that there’s no discrepancy with the official tally, then the dismissal of Marcos’ protest is immediate. However, Marcos loyalists also demand that if it is otherwise, Robredo must vacate the OVP at once.

Retrieval of Ballot Boxes in Camarines Sur
Sardillo admits that the recount of votes in three of 25 provinces where Bongbong Marcos is confident that cheating in favor of Vice President Leni Robredo blocks his victory can put a rest on Marcos' election protest. The ballot boxes from the district one and two of Camarines Sur are now in the Pili Comelec Office. This is necessary prior to their transport to Manila.
It is remembered that Senator Chiz Escudero lost 36,442 votes during the 2016 VP race; at the same time when Liberal Party bet Leni Robredo’s numbers rose to 35,000. Clean election advocate and IT expert, Glenn Chong speculates that a plus-minus scheme is evident here. That is “dagdag-bawas” in Filipino.
The camps of Robredo and Marcos are on vigil while the logistics are ongoing. Official results of the vice presidential race in Camarines Sur showed that Robredo got 664,190 votes (85 percent) to Marcos’ 41,219 (5 percent). Robredo is not the only VP bet from Bicol at that time. Former Senator Gregorio Honasan, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Senator Chis Escudero all have family ties in the Bicol region. This makes it very suspicious that a mediocre politician like Robredo can have that much votes.
Just after Liberal Party senators criticized Bongbong Marcos for claiming that the Presidential Electoral Tribunal is “unfair” to him in his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo, Marcos retaliates with a humorous reaction on the question; What would he undo in the OVP when he becomes Vice President? He is a bit hesitant to comment on Robredo’s achievement but chooses to be honest in a very funny way.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos Marcos said that nothing can be undone in the OVP.
Part of Judicial Process
Sena Francis Pangilinan, LP president, said it was “not good to question” the PET if its decision was unfavorable to Marcos. Minority Leader Franklin Drilon also said that he should accept the election body’s ruling not to conduct technical examinations on the perceived fake signatures. This is for the nullification of the votes.
Where is Integrity?
Senator Bam Aquino added that it was unfair for Marcos to doubt the integrity of the PET. This is despite the many reports of fraud – not just from the Marcos camp but also from various precinct watchers. On top of that, its alleged connivance with the Comelec whose ex-Chair Andres Bautista’s faces massive scandal after his wife squeals of some commissions received by her ex-husband from Smartmatic worsens the PET’s reputation to an all-time low.
In the Kapihan Sa Manila Bay forum, Marcos is asked if there is an achievement of Robredo that he would like to undo. This is when he becomes Vice President. He replied that nothing can be undone because his likely predecessor did not do anything. Marcos knows that he puts himself in some kind of trouble after saying this. But for him, he is just being honest.
The late President Ferdinand Marcos’s son vows to turn down the offer from the party of President Du30 to run as Senator if there’s any. “I will decline. I’m determined to finish this protest against VP Leni Robredo,” Bongbong Marcos said. This is actually in line with Du30’s advice earlier to continue the case. So, it’s likely that no such move can happen. This made many Marcos loyalists excited over social media. The likely Presidential heir now fights vocally after a long silence.

Marcos is not happy with Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa who handles his election protest for making biased resolutions. “It has now become fairly obvious that his resolutions are biased against me and biased in favour of the opposition,” Marcos said. Caguioa was appointed to the high court by former President Noynoy Aquino who swears to block him from the executive office. They were classmates at the Ateneo De Manila University.
Direct Answer to Macalintal
Marcos also reacts to the suggestion of Robredo’s legal counsel, Romulo Macalintal that he should run for Senator instead in the 2019 elections. He said that he doesn’t have to do that because he’s already the Vice President. His claim is consistent right after the 2016 poll up to now. He just has to prove that he was cheated.
In Line with President Du30’s Wish
Previously, the President advice Marcos to continue the protest. This is despite the fact that the Filipino leader needs a DILG Secretary very badly at that time. Marcos was a favourite candidate for the post. More so now that the LP floats the idea that Du30’s Federalism change aims to lengthen his term. When in reality, he wants to shorten it if Marcos is the VP.
The late President Ferdinand Marcos was a wise man. His promise to take care of his people after death is possible if the sectors involved will cooperate with his heirs. His son, Bongbong Marcos does not even know how much their family’s wealth is worth. It’s just something that they have to settle. There’s a legal process to follow. However, DOJ Secretary, Vitaliano Aguirre said; “We did not receive any instructions from higher-ups yet. We are completely ignorant about it,” he explained.
[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos explains why ex-PCGG Chairman Bautista knows better about the sequestered Marcos wealth.
Sequestered Wealth by the PCGG
Bongbong Marcos bluntly answers that he does not know exactly how much wealth his father had kept. He recalls that when they were exiled in Hawaii, they only had the clothes in their bag. All documents and possessions were ceased by the American government. PCGG ex-chairman Andres Bautista knows better with regards to their personal treasures at that time. On the alleged golden wealth, the former Senator said that the government can have what they can find.
Wealth for Humanity
It is known in many pieces of evidence that the Marcos Foundation holds the rights to the gold certificates. Its beneficiaries are the Filipino people. It is recorded in the Central Bank. The government has the jurisdiction for its assignment in cooperation with the World Bank. Its claim from various overseas banks needs the bill of lading kept by the heir of the late President Marcos which is his wife. The World Bank is the globe’s martial for their intended use as willed by Marcos. The Senate must listen to Congresswoman Imelda Marcos and hear the sides of the trustees.
Logical Destabilization Theory
Bongbong Marcos frankly said in another interview that there are strong groups that are working to destabilize the Du30 administration. The president has a close alliance with the Marcos family. Suspicious remittances, Marawi rebellion and, mind-conditioning surveys manifest all at the same time. The opposition continues to attack him using such black propaganda. This can go intense as the recount for the VP post is about to begin in February 2018. The destabilization efforts tend to block the administration’s cooperation with the Marcoses.
