Can the Death of Supreme Court CJ Corona be Avenged by Belgica’s Cases against Ex-Pnoy, etc?

senator


By: Elena Grace Flores

Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona died of cardiac arrest. He certainly died of a broken heart. Corona is decent man falsely charged by the Aquino administration. He tried to fight a war he could not win. Consequently, he was removed from office as what then-President Noynoy Aquino wanted. Only three voted to acquit Corona and they were former Senators Joker Arroyo, the late Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Bongbong Marcos. Now, However, Greco Belgica as the Presidential Anti-corruption Commission Commissioner as well as TJC President files malversation complaints against ex-Pnoy and other officials. If it can be proved that the senators who acted as judges in the impeachment trial of the late CJ were “bribed” through the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP), then his removal would be null and void. That would definitely restore his legacy.

[VIDEO]: Former President Benigno Aquino III and several other officials are facing 272 counts of malversation for their alleged involvement in the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Truth and Justice Commission President Greco Belgica filed the complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman Monday. Belgica is also a commissioner of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Committee.


Ombudsman Case to Avenge the Late Supreme Court CJ

The Truth and Justice Coalition filed 274 counts of malversation against various officials, former President Noynoy Aquino among others. This is in connection with the DAP funds of 2011.



Not an Attack Against the Opposition

Belgica, however, says in a statement that the complaints should not be construed as an attack against the opposition. However, the names of the other officials who served as respondents aside from Aquino are Butch Abad, who was the former Budget and Management Secretary. Mar Roxas, who was the former Interior and Local Government Secretary. Joseph Emilio Abaya, who was the former Cavite Rep. and House Appropriations Committee Chair. Senator Franklin Drilon, who was the former Senate Finance Committee Chair. Senator Antonio Trillanes. Mario Relampagos, who was the former Budget and Management Undersecretary. Lastly, Director Yolanda Doblon.


Pinned Down Respondents

Among the senators, only Drilon and Trillanes were named as respondents by Belgica. This is despite the fact that other senators and congressmen received DAP funds as well. To quote Belgica, “It just so happened that the evidence gathered by the coalition has pinned down the named respondents. Note that the complaint also refers to several John Does.” Furthermore, he adds, that Abaya and Drilon as the finance heads of both branches of legislature directly participated in the malversation scheme to bribe the aforementioned lawmakers for the removal of the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Corona. Roxas, on the other hand, had clandestine meetings with the senators.



Ghost Projects

Implicating Trillanes was the alleged ghost projects that he implemented. Quoting Belgica, “The amnesty, ghost project and the project not listed in the Fil-Chinese Chamber of Commerce website are matters that distinguish Senator Trillanes from the rest of the DAP recipient senators who voted for the conviction of CJ Corona.”




Malversation of Public Funds

The grounds for the malversation complaints as quoted from Belgica, “because there was no law authorizing the cross-border transfer which in itself is a blatant violation of the Constitution.” He adds that the funds were influential in the impeachment and conviction of Corona. This is also corroborated by the privilege speeches of senators Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla. Belgica says that 4 days before the impeachment of Corona, 124 congressmen received their DAP funds.

Do You Know Bongbong Marcos’ Likely Bets for Election 2019?

Election 2019


By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos reminds the members of the Marcos Loyalists Movement during his visit in Cebu. That the officials they will vote for election 2019 are for public service. Not to make themselves rich but to make the lives of their constituents better. This is the ultimate Marcos idealism. He urges the public to choose election candidates who do not play politics only but the ones who put service to the people first. Marcos repeats that he does not intend to run for Senator. He definitely won’t spoil his electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. Below is the list of likely candidates that might get Marcos’ endorsement:



YouTube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: For those who have been wondering if I intend to run in the coming elections – I won’t spoil it, but the answer is in this #BBMvlog.


Gov. Imee Marcos for Election 2019

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos attributes her rise in the latest Pulse Asia senatorial survey to ‘engagement’ with Filipinos. However, Pulse Asia’s president, Ronnie Holmes has another explanation. others who were ahead of her in June dropped in the September survey for the election 2019. In Pulse Asia’s latest Ulat ng Bayan survey on the 2019 senatorial elections released on September 22, Marcos rose to the 7th to 11th places with a 32.6% voter preference, landing her in the so-called winners’ circle.  Marcos has been spending the last few months going around different provinces in the country. She is currently seen attending various events, from town fiestas to distribution of relief goods. She surely gets her brother’s support from the start.

Ex-ASec Mocha Uson

Former Palace official Mocha Uson confirms that she will seek an elective post in the polls next year. The announcement came a week after she resigned as a “sacrifice” to pave the way for the approval of the Presidential Communications Operations Office budget. Deliberations on the agency’s budget had been delayed by her failure to attend budget hearings, where heads of agencies and offices are often asked about their accomplishments in the previous year. She announced her resignation during the Senate hearing on the PCOO budget for 2019. Mocha Uson confirms running for 2019 elections but not sure yet if Senate or House seat. She believes that ordinary Filipinos should have a voice. As the President’s avid supporter, Marcos only has good words for her. He wished that she can finally find the position where she can truly be happy.


Senator Nancy Binay

Teachers who will volunteer to supervise the conduct of elections in the country should receive tax-free compensation, Senator Nancy Binay said. Binay has introduced a bill in the Senate which seeks to exempt from income tax the compensation given to teachers whenever they serve as members of the electoral board during national or local poll exercises. Unfortunately,  she said the election season is prone to incidents of election-related violence and deaths. She said the government should recognize the public service that teachers perform during national and local elections by at least exempting from income tax the compensation given to them. Under present laws, compensation for services in whatever form paid, including but limited to fees, salaries, wages, commissions, and similar items are included in gross income and taxable. Earlier, Marcos thanked her for filing a resolution that made the 2016 election fraud investigation at the Senate possible.

SAP Bong Gp

Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has now decided to run for senator. This was announced by no less than President Rodrigo Du30. For the past months, Go has kept busy honoring speaking engagements all over the country without the President. He has frequently appeared at public events, distributing relief goods to fire victims and flood victims. One time, he even donated a brand new ambulance to a Leyte hospital. Marcos can only support Go as an endorsee of President Du30. 



Former Senator Jinggoy Estrada

Former Senator Jinggoy Estrada said that he would “most probably” run in next year’s mid-term elections to reclaim his Senate seat. Estrada welcomes the filing of charges against former President Benigno Aquino III and former Budget Secretary Butch Abad in connection with the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) recently. He also appears with Gov. Marcos in a TV interview to talk about the force behind their senatorial bids. As one of Ex-Pnoy’s selective justice victims, he can only back the Marcoses, who are the Aquino’s ultimate concern.


Senators Cynthia Villa and Pia Cayetano

The Nacionalista Party (NP) will field three women in the 2019 senatorial elections, NP chairman Sen. Cynthia Villar said yesterday. Aside from Villar, the other two women are Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos and Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano. Villar said the NP is revitalizing its alliance with the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) and the ruling PDP-Laban to form a coalition for the 2019 elections. In fact, Gov. Marcos already forges an alliance with Hugpong, which is a Presidential daughter, Sara Du30 organizes.

Stronger Du30-Marcos Alliance with CGMA as Speaker of the House – Can Some Senators Live with It?

senators





By: Elena Grace Flores

Some senators express their disagreement over CGMA’s recent take over as the new Speaker of the House replacing Cong. Pantaleon Alvarez in a coup d’etat manner. Senators Ping Lacson and Grace Poe are quite emotional about it. Lacson was in exile under the Arroyo administration when he became a prime suspect of a double-murder case. Poe is the adopted daughter of Arroyo’s rival, actor Fernando Poe, Jr. However, the accusations against the ex-lady leader were all not proven until now. She found an even stronger alliance after her ordeal in the prison cell for 5 long years. President Rodrigo Du30 still calls her the boss. Bongbong Marcos and his family also feel for Arroyo’s plight under the same enemies – the Aquino clan.

The Dramatic Takeover that Shocked Senators

The sudden change in the leadership of the House of Representatives was not a coup d’état. House Deputy Speaker Fredenil Castro said the majority vote of congressmen in favor of former-president-now-Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo replacing Pantaleon Alvarez would “override” any supposed irregularity in the process. Castro was responding to Alvarez reportedly raising questions about the validity of the takeover since the audio and the mace symbolizing the Speaker’s authority were absent during Arroyo’s oath-taking.




Looking Back on How Much Marcos and Arroyo Endured Injustices

[VIDEO]:  Imelda Marcos visits Gloria Arroyo

Former First Lady and now Congresswoman Imelda Marcos cannot hide her dismay when she visited CGMA in her prison cell while serving a verdict that was never made. There was no conviction whatsoever until now. Nonetheless, she was a threat to the interests of the Aquino administration. Cong. Marcos thinks that the treatment of former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III to Arroyo was just cruel. It was clearly an injustice, she said.

Marcos-Arroyo Endurance Under the Aquinos

The Marcoses and Arroyo have suffered a lot under the two Aquino regimes. Their lives revolved around trials that are unending. Nothing can pin them down due to lack of substantial evidence and yet, the Aquinos showed no signs of mercy or respect in the due process. They used their media influence to destroy the reputation of both political names.








Bongbong Marcos was CGMA’s Birthday Guest Speaker

[VIDEO]: Former president and now Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Arroyo celebrated her 70th birthday with several political VIPs. Among them, former Senator Bongbong Marcos

Bongbong Marcos swore during the birthday celebration of CGMA that he won’t stop working on his protest until all votes of his voters for Vice President are counted. He was also critical to VP Leni Robredo for being so unpatriotic. This was the time when she bad-mouthed the President’s war on drugs to the international audience during a UN side event.



CGMA Made the Du30-Marcos Stronger

As shown in the series of events, there’s no denying that CGMA’s takeover is vital to the Du30-Marcos alliance. There’s a Filipino anecdote that says; if you can’t do it through ethical means, do it quickly at the most possible method. Coup d’etat or not, the House’s leadership change is as fast as when the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno was ousted using SolGen Calida’s quo warranto petition. Is the VP post next?

Rep. Imelda Marcos: Golden Wealth, Not Ill-Gotten, the Marcoses are Not Thieves

wealth





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The fact that the Marcoses always win the plunder cases against them is the ultimate proof that the golden wealth is not ill-gotten. They are all documented and traded according to international laws. People who don’t know anything are the ones who made accusations against the Marcoses. It is also some kind of false hope that Filipinos can receive a cold cash share of those treasures. They are intended for long-term public service use that can surely benefit the country and the world in general.

[VIDEO]: Marcos Gold.



Golden Wealth, all Documented

The former first lady and now Rep. Imelda Marcos reiterates that the golden wealth labeled by his husband as the wealth for humanity is not ill-gotten. They are documented following the international trading laws at that time. This is why they always win the cases against them




Not Stolen

The President also clarifies that in making the offer, the Marcoses were not admitting that the wealth being returned was stolen. “Imee Marcos did not announce that it had been stolen. But she said whatever was under suspicion should be discussed and that I accepted,” he said.



The President’s Plan

Du30 explains that he could not possibly decide on the offer because he was not authorized by a law to do so. “When the proceeding would begin, we should start with Congress. They represent the people,” he said. “There could be more wealth but we have to start with the Congress. You know, the Congress must authorize, then it should be the Central Bank governor and the secretary of finance who would then negotiate,” he added.








No Sole Power Over Wealth

The President has this to say; “A President cannot negotiate by himself. It has to be the law and the law must come from the Congress, not from me. I cannot say with finality that this should be the way. There are so many stages to undergo. If it’s an arbitration because it’s settlement, it should go under an arbitration proceeding. But the Congress must authorize because that is a money to be recovered by the government of the Republic of the Philippines and that was the offer,” he elaborated.




Duterte: No deal yet on Marcos wealth

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It’s Not Only Now

The opposition asks as if they are ignorant why it’s only now that Imelda Marcos discloses the whereabouts of the gold reserves. As per the Senate video clip, Marcos pleads the Senators in the past to look into the said treasures as stated in her late husband’s Will and Testament. It is clearly stated in the will that the financial reserves are for the good of the Filipinos. They must be used for public services, infrastructure, healthcare, education, and more. They are not for individual distribution.



Gov. Imee Marcos’ Talk with the President

The President said when asked about backing Bongbong Marcos’ presidential bid; “I don’t care about that. In 5 years I will no longer be on the political scene.” He also confirmed that he discussed the offer with Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, not with her mother or brother.








Congress Proceeding

“The Marcoses are ready to cooperate. I accept the explanation because there is no other explanation, I do not know anything, I cannot debate with them.”.  It’s time that these things be settled,” the President added. I just accepted that they want to make arrangements with the government so the case would come to an end,” he said. The President also revealed that Gov. Marcos did not disclose if the wealth they have was ill-gotten. The proceedings should begin. They should start with Congress,” said Du30.
