By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos explains to the audience of his political sorties that he is not running for any position this coming May 2019 elections. His sister. Gov. Imee Marcos is the candidate for Senator. She is number 46. The former Senator is just her proxy. He is more than willing to do that saying that with the vast achievements the lady governor has, to campaign for her is not a difficult thing to do. In fact, even from the start before the campaign period, she’s already in the top 12 Senatorial bets.

Speaker in Negros Occidental

I am recently the proxy of Manang Imee during the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) rally in Negros Occidental. We all know that the Negrenses’ brand of hospitality is distinctly warm and this day was no exception, Marcos said as he spoke in front of the people in the area.

Big Surprise in Bacolod

Marcos also joins the Hugpong ng Pagbabago rally in Bacolod City previously. He had no idea that he was in for a big surprise. More than 15,000 Bacoleños were in the Panaad stadium to show support for the HNP senatorial bets! The stadium was just full of the voting public.

Davao City Unity

Imee Marcos’ brother is also happy to share some of his experiences in local governance during the 4th Regional Liga ng mga Barangay Convention in Davao City. The theme, “Nagkakaisang Barangay, Tagumpay ng Bansang Pilipinas” reminds people of the importance of UNITY in addressing the needs of our communities, Marcos reiterates.

Long History of Public Service

My family has a long history of public service in Ilocos Norte. It began almost a hundred years ago when my grandfather, Mariano Marcos became Congressman in 1925, said Marcos. After that came my father, my aunt (Elizabeth Marcos-Keon), my mother, and my cousins (Nonong, Angelo & Michael). Sister, Imee and I also serve the province and now it looks like the next generation takes over. It starts with Manang Imee’s son (Matthew Marcos Manotoc) who runs for Governor. What about Sandro Marcos?

The Marcoses are Back Starting from Imee Marcos as Senator

The VP electoral protest hopeful declares that the Marcoses are again ready to go full time in public service. Not only his batch of politicians in the family but also his son’s. When the heart remains pure and the intention is to help others, no amount of black media propaganda can destroy them. Many Filipinos are indeed looking forward to the return of the Marcoses starting from making Imee Marcos win one of the Senate seats as a top Senator.

Can the Supreme Court Ignore Atty. Glenn Chong’s Testimony on Marcos’ Missing Votes?

One of the top candidates for Senator, Atty. Glenn Chong explains at the top of his lungs the obvious anomaly on the missing votes of Bongbong Marcos during the last election in 2016. The Comelec can only discredit him that he is lawyering for Marcos. However, only people who pretend to be deaf can’t understand the logic of his explanation. Will the Supreme Court ignore this? z

[VIDEO]: Who can Stop Atty. Glenn Chong in Locating Marcos’ Missing Votes?

Hot Senatoriable’s Advocacy

Hot senatoriable Atty. Glenn Chong discloses the whereabouts of Bongbong Marcos’ 241,712 voting shortage to win as VP. He said that the official votes from the Comelec server are short of around 241,000 votes. The result of municipal, district, regional and regional board of canvassers of 181 million for the 6 VP and 6 Presidential candidates must tally with that of the Comelec server. However, it so happens that the shortage of Bongbong Marcos to win as VP is more or less the same as the amount of the missing votes from the overall total.

Comelec is Not Listening

Instead of getting the data from Chong, Comelec ex-Chair Sixto Brilliantes tries to deny Chong’s claims. He has doubts of the figures that the young lawyer mentioned. Nevertheless, Chong blasts him saying that the poll body did not check the database. The team of Chong thoroughly made a careful examination and analysis of the available information. This is why the former Congressman of Biliran can immediately criticize them right at their faces.

Lawyering for Marcos?

The people can now understand why Chong’s detractors insist that he is Marcos’ lawyer. His knowledge about the massive 2016 election cheating is vital to the electoral protest of Marcos against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. In fact many experts speculate that the Supreme Court is quiet now because they need an unquestionable defense for their decision on the case which can only be favorable to the son of the late President, Ferdinand Marcos.

The People are Now Aware

It is evident online that the popularity of Chong surges high because of his passionate fight against election fraud. He accuses Comelec and Smartmatic of depriving the people on their choices during elections. This is why he runs for Senator. He said,that doing so is his last straw for his clean election advocacy. The people must be the ones to decide on his plight.

The Supreme Court is Under Close Watch

Despite the restlessness of Marcos’ supporters online, they can’t do anything but to wait for the Supreme Court to act on the electoral protest of Marcos. They are just waiting for the legislative branch to make a wrong move. For sure, the loyalists won’t take any unfair decisions sitting down. As Chong’s digital survey rate increases, the more Comelec fears for its possible demise.

Democracy in Makati: Abby &Jojo Binay Tandem is for Imee Marcos

By: Elena Grace Flores

Despite the lost footages online, many remember that Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos who runs for Senator joins the ribbon cutting in Makati. It was during the Consumer’s Welfare Week 2018 at the Makati City Hall. She hails the leadership of Mayor Abby Binay and her Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo. Now that former Vice President Jojo Binay announces support to his daughter, things get clearer than ever. The Binay patriarch is supportive of the Marcoses regardless of his human rights lawyering during martial law. This is contrary to his other daughter’s stand. Senator Nancy Binay seeks another term alongside her brother, Junjun who opposes the incumbent Makati mayor. Democracy is evident in the commercial city because people get to vote their bet within the family. z

Two Sets of Binays in Makati

Abby Binay and Jojo Binay are obviously in line with the idealism of Bongbong and Imee Marcos. While Nancy Binay is often heard speaking negatively against them. She fights alongside with brother Junjun who runs with Monsour del Rosario as District 1 Representative opposite her father and sister. Aside from sibling rivalry, many can tag this as pro and anti-Marcos bout.

From Jojo to Imee

On the other hand, the campaign ad of Imee Marcos depicts that of Jojo Binay’s “We are like this in Makati.” She recently launches “We are like this in Ilocos Norte! The governor who is now a senatorial candidate talks about the price of rice in her province in this video. Definitely a classic advertisement straight from Jejomar Binay’s portfolio in the 2016 elections!

Democracy in Makati through Election

Abby in an interview confesses that has differences with older sister, Nancy. The mayor has always been independent of her family. It is quite a surprise when her father shows up during her certificate of candidacy filing versus brother Junjun. Prior to this Jojo already said that he would live it to the people’s choice. They have to vote among his two children. It is democracy in action.

Sibling Rivalry

A Win-Win Situation for the Binays

Abby and Junjun may divide the votes in Makati. However, it is a different case when the father runs alongside one. Most residents just love him. Nevertheless, the line up for the race only highlights the siblings as the top two contenders of the mayoral post. Perhaps, this can also determine the Marcoses’ return to power. It’s becauses whoever wins is still a Binay.

Manny Pacquiao finally admits in a recent interview that Gov.Imee Marcos who runs for Senator in the upcoming election is included in their line up. Pacquiao is the campaign manager of PDP-Laban. Marcos joins her co-Nacionalista party members, Cynthia Villar, and Pia Cayetano to complete the magic 12 of the great boxer’s party. This is contrary to the rumors earlier saying the visuals of Pacquiao’s endorsement of Marcos were fake. z

[VIDEO]: Senator Manny Pacquiao Confirms that as PDP-Laban’s campaign manager, Gov. Imee Marcos is included in their political sorties.

Let the Laws Take Care of Alleged Corruption Issues

Pacquiao is smart enough to answer the interviewer’s question about how he feels when it comes to Marcos’ family issues of corruption. He said that the country has laws that deal with those. Guilty or not, it has nothing to do with her political platform that is in line with the administration’s quest.

The Count is Just Right

The Filipino legend endorses candidates outside the 5-member slate of the ruling party. Pacquiao enumerated the names of senatorial bets he endorses. They are 12 candidates in total. 7 of them are from other parties. Which 3 of them are from the Nacionalista party.

5 MaBaGoKoTo Bets

Pacquiao enumerates the names of senatorial bets he endorses. There are a total of 13 candidates. more than the number of seats up for grabs. These include the 5 PDP-Laban bets called MaBaGoKoTo: – Former top cop Ronald dela Rosa – Duterte’s close aide Bong Go – Maguindanao 2nd District Representative Zajid Mangudadatu – Senator Aquilino Pimentel III – Former presidential political adviser Francis Tolentino

8 or 7 from Other Parties?

Pacquiao also endorses these 8 other candidates outside of his party slate: – Jinggoy Estrada – Bong Revilla – Grace Poe – Cynthia Villar – JV EJercito – Sonny Angara – Pia Cayetano and – Imee Marcos

Not Debunking Imee Marcos’ Endorsement for Senator

Both Du30 and Pacquiao support Marcos. Not to mention the President’s daughter, Sara Du30-Carpio who organizes Hugpong ng Pagbabago. There are obvious overlappings in some of the candidates like in Gov. Marcos’ case. However, this is not an issue for Pacquiao. They just have to prioritize their own candidates. Although recently in Cebu, the endorsement of Pacquiao for Marcos was very notable.

Can Senator Koko Pimentel Work with Bongbong and Imee Marcos?


By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Koko Pimentel said that he can work with Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos if they both win in May’s Senate elections. However, he maintains that the martial law years under her father’s regime were not good for the country. Pimentel’s father, former Senate President Nene Pimentel was a political prisoner during the Marcos regime. Despite this, he had worked with her brother, Bongbong Marcos when he was still a Senator. He is used to working with them. z

[VIDEO]: Sen. Koko Pimentel on campaigning with Imee Marcos

Gotten Used to Former Senator Bongbong Marcos

“I’ve gotten used to it.” Senator Pimentel said, whose father was a political prisoner during the Marcos regime. He sees no problem sharing the campaign stage with Imee Marcos. Hugpong ng Pagbabago is their common affiliation. The President’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Du30-Carpio chairs the political party.

Imee Marcos and Martial Law are Two Different Things

For Pimentel, the Marcos martial law years were not good years or not beneficial years to the country. He believes that the suppression of democracy at that time was evident. We had no basic freedoms,” Pimentel added. This remains to be his stand. But he can campaign with Imee because she is a nominee of President Rodrigo Du30. Like Marcos, Pimentel is an ally of the President.

Who Doesn’t Lie?

The Ilocos Norte governor recently stirs controversy over her educational credentials after the University of the Philippines and the Princeton University announces through the mainstream media that she is not a graduate of her school. Although Marcos only said that she completed her studied in both schools. Mayor Du30-Carpio defends Marcos, saying that Leni Robredo should not talk about honesty. She is known as a Fake VP for nothing. This should not be an election issue because all candidates supposedly lie anyway, she declares.

Honesty is a Decision One Can Make

Although Pimentel believes that honesty is “important”, he cannot instill it to all people. It is the right thing to do but we are not in the position to judge. It should also be understood that if some people can trust a person who is not honest, then that it is his decision,” he added. Marcos actually did not lie. She knows that she consistently was in the dean’s list and even attended her graduation ceremony from UP Law. However, her diploma was withheld because of Princeton’s taking her out of the list of graduates following the criticisms of some anti-Marcos followers.

Senator Pimentel’s Unpopularity

Pimentel suffers from recent unpopularity because of his slow and ineffective handling of the Senate inquiry on election fraud in 2016. Supporters of the clean election advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong who is among the top senatorial candidates as per an online survey criticizes his impositions to the Comelec or lack of them. Even Mayor Sara was also not happy with him once. He can actually do better than what he said about Imee and Bongbong Marcos. That might give him a chance to at least get more votes.
