Why does Robredo Need to Highlight her Insecurity with Imee Marcos to Endorse Roxas for Election 2019?

By: Elena Grace Flores

Mar Roxas ends his semi-retirement in politics as he files the certificate of candidacy in Election 2019 for Senator. Since Smartmatic still operates the poll, there are still yellows who can win through the fraudulent machines. This is some kind of payment for the debt of Smartmatic to Noynoy Aquino when he allowed it to administer the 2016 elections despite its disqualification. Meanwhile, Leni Robredo stresses the reason why Roxas is running. It’s because “there is another Marcos again” who will run in the Senate, she said. She is referring to Gov. Imee Marcos. If Marcos was actually the reason for Roxas’ candidacy, why didn’t he wait for her to file her candidacy first before his? So clearly, the governor is not his reason for his decision. Roxas is really excited to run because he knows he can win with Smartmatic’s manipulation, according to Atty. Glenn Chong.

Senator to be Imee Marcos’ Solutions

Imee Marcos focuses on the chant “Imee, solution,” of her supporters and zones out the chants of “Never again to Martial Law” by supporters of the opposition senatorial bet Chel Diokno. On Tuesday, the 16th of October, 2018 she filed for her certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections.


Family Support

She is accompanied by her family. Her mother was there, former First Lady Imelda Marcos, who is also seeking to fill in the Ilocos Norte governor slot in the election 2019. Her brother Bongbong was also there, who is currently contesting the results of the 2016 elections for vice president.


The Bet of the Millennials

Imee Marcos is appealing to the Millenials. She once headed the KB, the forerunner of the Sangguniang Kabataan, during the Martial Law period. In an interview, she says that the times are different now. Furthermore, the millennials are now willing to hear about their side of the story.



Roxas Filed his COC for Election 2019 First

As another senatorial bet of the LP, Mar Roxas, the former interior secretary, arrived to file for his Certificate of Candidacy prior to Imee. The Marcos supporters still shouted their support for Marcos. Roxas responds, he says in a video that he had taken an examination of conscience for the past weeks. He ascertains that despite his imperfections as well as shortcomings, he still believes that he has given his best to serve the country as well as its people.


Democracy in a Divided Nation

The supporters of both sides taunted each other outside of the Comelec. Marcos, under the Nacionalista Party, and a Du30 ally, and Diokno, running under the opposing Liberal party, did not talk to each other during the filing of their COCs. Even Mar Roxas comments upon arriving at the Comelec that democracy is very much alive. This is contrary to the lie of Robredo that it is now dead. The presumptive VP is known for her lies and fake news just to discredit the current administration for her party’s own advantage. It is clear that she has to cover her own insecurity with Bongbong Marcos using his sister and her LP co-member’s  senatorial rivalry.

Can Former Senator Bongbong Marcos Continue his VP Duties Despite Criticisms?

senator


By: Elena Grace Flores

The ongoing election protest of former Senator Bongbong Marcos against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo is instructive over the results of the vice presidential contest. The tell-tale signs of a concerted effort to ensure that the wishes of then-President Benigno Simeon Aquino III to block Marcos’ return to the executive office are obvious. His party supporters safely carried out their quest during elections. Smartmatic obviously ensures the victory of the pro-Aquino slate. However, despite the mainstream media blackout, the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos remains to thrive because of his clan’s good governance.



YouTube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: I always believed in the importance of the LGUs, having spent most of my public service career in local government. To all the barangays in Quezon City, congratulations on a job well done!


Ex-Pnoy’s Wrath

The most sophisticated cheating strategy happens in the highest levels of the Comelec. This is under the baton no less of the infamous ex-Comelec Chair Andy Bautista. He organizes what turns out to be the most corrupt electoral system and practice in the country’s history.  That starts from the leak of the list which the National Privacy Commission exposed. It turns out that the same was the handiwork of a group of Comelec employees working in tandem with LP manipulators.

Follow-up on Senator Tito Sotto

Calls for Senate President Tito Sotto and Senator Dick Gordon occupy social media platforms. People are making follow-ups on the verdict of the hearings conducted. They owe it to the public to make the 2016 elections mishaps as the basis to safeguard a clean, honest and credible elections in 2019. The joint legislative committee on the automated electoral system has gathered enough information. They can easily craft a good model for the next elections if they want to.


Tweaking Excuses

The tweaking of the “N” in the middle of the national canvass by Venezuela Marlon Garcia already casts doubts on the 2016 elections. Neither Comelec nor Smartmatic cannot come up with credible excuses. The overwhelming public view that it caused Marcos’ over-a-million lead to vanish dramatically remains. Thus, the ongoing protest at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal is very much alive. In fact, it leans towards Marcos’ victory. It is even supported by the IT experts in the country.



Never Again to Smartmatic

The people should never again let Smartmatic and its co-conspirators to make a mockery of our electoral process. Foreigners must not decide the fate of our democracy. They are the reason for all kinds of problems and questionable results using their automated electoral system. The oligarchs benefit greatly from the results they generate.


Where is Democracy?

Smartmatic’s monopoly over Philippine elections was perpetuated by PNoy-appointed officials. Acting Comelec chairman Christian Robert Lim awarded the supply contract for the vote counting machines (VCMs) to be used in the May 2019 midterm elections to Smartmatic. This was three weeks before his scheduled retirement on February 2, 2018. Also, it was without the benefit of any bidding or public notice. Now, it would be too expensive for the government to eliminate that. Therefore, Marcos’ critics have no right to stop Marcos from inspiring the LGUs to promote good governance. The pro-Marcos community is larger than the black media propaganda his detractors launched against him because they are the real voters.

Is the Supreme Court Now Leaning Towards Bongbong Marcos’ Favor in his VP Electoral Protest?

supreme court


By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos served a manifestation of appreciation to the Supreme Court sitting as the PET and Omnibus Motion. He is stating in the manifestation that he is grateful for the PET’s decision. This is with the threshold not being the final determinant of the votes, with the ballot to still undergo appreciation to determine the true intent of the voter. Meanwhile, the culture of seniority at the SC is now back. This is as Chief Justice Teresita De Castro finishes her shortest term ever. Fairness can’t be alien anymore knowing that the blues now balances with the yellows.

Omnibus Motion

Marcos is also expressing gratitude for the PET for maintaining Rule 43 which states that marks that don’t reach 50% of the oval will not be considered valid votes. However, for the Omnibus Motion, BBM is asking PET to withdraw part of their decision to use the election returns as the basis for the segregation of the ballots at the recount proceedings. Because this is in opposition to a previous decision of the Supreme Court versus the Comelec in the Lerias case.

Vital Evidence from the Supreme Court

In accordance with this, the Supreme Court says that the ballots serve as the strongest evidence and not the election returns. The Supreme Court adds that the election returns will only be used only if there are no ballots. With the ballots still there, it follows that the election returns shouldn’t be used. Consequently, Marcos asked again not to use the decrypted ballot images because they have been compromised.


The Use of the Decrypted Images

The PET has already said before that the decrypted ballot images will be used in place of the original if they are unreadable. The Supreme Court says that the decrypted ballot images serve as a functional equivalent of the original. This is also acting on the precedence of the cases Vinzons-Chato versus HRET and Maliksi versus Comelec. The PET further adds that  BBM was not able to present evidence that the decrypted ballot images have been compromised.

Marcos’ Opposition to Use the Digital Prints

BBM’s camp, however, argues that these cases shouldn’t be used as a basis now because there is a difference between the images and the original ballots of the 2016 elections. This is regarding the squares that Smartmatic added to the ballot images. This shows that the images are not faithful reproductions of the original.



Wet and Damaged Ballots

With regards to the missing ballot images, BBM also expresses concern. The images from the VCM when taken are in a chronological order. Furthermore, each image has a sequence number that serves as control marks. However, it has been discovered that there are missing images on the first and middle parts and there are items added at the end. This shows as a clear indication of tampering.


Supreme Court Decision

With the ballot images as the basis of the results, manipulating them equates to manipulating the elections. This is clear evidence that the ballot images are compromised. In Naga City and Camarines Sur only, there are 37,159 ballot images that have been compromised in this way. This was shown in a Senate hearing on July 31 however 2 months after and there still is no answer from Smartmatic or Comelec. Nevertheless, CJ De Castro’s one month stint in the branch’s highest office seems like making a difference. For one, the yellow atmosphere now becomes blue which is a symbol of peace and harmony that is in line with Marcos’ idealism for unity.

Why Bongbong Marcos Must Not Allow Supreme Court to Use the ERs for the VP Recount?

supreme court


By: Elena Grace Flores

(Please rewrite for new tone: keyword- Supreme Court)

Atty. Glenn Chong’s questions the PET resolution, saying that the printed election returns will only be used in the initial cutting by ballot. There’s a big question at this point. The election returns or result of the election and the report or summary of the ballot and votes are both inspired by the single document only – the ballot images or image of the ballot that the machine took after entering the voter’s ballot in the VCM. Mr. Edmund Casino of the Computer Society of the Philippines expresses his disgust over the decrypted images that prove to be not the replica of the original ballots. This alone he said is a violation of the election law. The Supreme Court recently rules to use the election returns as the basis of the recount after setting aside the threshold dispute.

Data Illustration

In the image is a report from precinct 17040010 in Bombon, CAMARINES SUR. This report will be visible to the of sections of this report from the machine and the explanations in these data.

Lost Ballots in the Supreme Court Count

In the vice presidential contest, we can see all the votes read and counted by the machine (no one voted + so much voted + all votes obtained by all candidates) were 667 only. But according to the machine, there were 679  votes and 679 used ballots during the poll. Why 667 votes only were read by the machine? Where are the 12 votes that should be counted? The Supreme Court gag order is successful covering this up.


Ambiguous Marks

See the report where the 12 votes have been placed. If it’s abstentions, it means the voter has no vote. It should be in the under-votes because there is no vote. But why place in abstentions? It’s clear that there is an ambiguous character or an un-clear mark that the machine does not know. The 5 % to 20 % of markings in the oval space actually serve as ambiguous marks. This is why the Supreme Court must not adhere to the 25% plea of the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo.



Cheating Strategy

The alien marking or a small dot (5 % to 20 % of the oval space) in the oval of the fraudulent candidate for the position to be deceived allows the machine to classify it as a vote for the cheater before it reaches the voter’s hand. When the voter voted any candidate in this position except the fraudulent candidate with a small dot (ambiguous mark) at the oval, the voter’s vote for the voted candidate is not counted even if the round-shaped shading area is marked. This is because there is an ambiguous mark in one of the candidates in such a position. It will go to the abstentions. The Supreme Court must scrutinize this.


Be Knowledgeable

But if the fraudulent candidate with a small dot is voted by the voter, of course, the mark will be made in the round-shaped shading area. It will be counted for the cheater because the ambiguous mark will be lost at the oval of this candidate. That’s just simple and logical for programmers. How many votes did get in this way? There were 92,509 ports that opened on the election day. Let’s say at least 12 each is in this nature and the average measure is 25 % (yes, that 25 %!), it will reach 370,036 votes per precinct. It can definitely win the VP post!

Supreme Court Leaves Trillanes at the RTC as Enrile Reveals to Marcos Smartmatic’s Yellow Control

Supreme Court





By: Elena Grace Flores

Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile warns Bongbong Marcos that as long as Smartmatic controls the election, the Yellow’s dominance stays. Enrile reveals that the late President Cory had no clue when it comes to governance. However, the people around her who are anti-Marcos made sure to consolidate power through the important branches of government by installing a revolutionary constitution. To this date, they still have a stronghold over the important branches of government including the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, a known Yellow ally is now at the hands of the RTC. The court takes at least 30 days to resolve a motion. If the case is urgent enough, a judge can resolve it sooner. Judges Andres Soriano and Elmo Alameda, of the Makati Regional Trial Court, are under pressure when state prosecutors stormed to their sala. This is when the SC pushed Senator Trillanes’ petition back to the local courts.

Proclamation No. 572

Proclamation No. 572 revokes Trillanes’ amnesty. It also orders his arrest for his role in the Oakwood Mutiny of 2003 and the Manila Peninsula Siege of 2007. It was dated on the 31st of August but was only made public on the 4th of September through a newspaper publication. Despite the presidential order, the rebel senator is still seeking refuge at the Senate.



The DOJ

The Department of Justice then filed separate motions for the Judges of the Makati RTC to order Trillanes’ immediate arrest. However, the judges instead ordered a series of hearings. This is to allow both Trillanes and the state prosecutors to present their sides. The court’s proceeding allows a delay to the Senator’s arrest for at least 30 days.

Convicted Magdalos

Judge Soriano granted interviews and welcomed reporters after the DOJ filed their motion. The judge did not grant the DOJ’s request to immediately file a warrant of arrest, instead, he gave 10 days to Trillanes’ lawyers to comment, and 5 days for the prosecutors to file their rejoinder. People can just sense the power struggle through these agencies.



Aquino’s Amnesty Grant

During an interview, Soriano acknowledges that Trillanes and the Magdalo group’s’ rebellion case was dismissed on Sept. 21, 2011. It was dismissed by Judge Ma. Rita Sarabia, to follow the amnesty that was granted to them by President Aquino. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Trillanes can escape the imprisonment. The debate on his military status is still ongoing that can dispute the court-martial proceedings.




Sure Conviction Outside of Supreme Court

However, Soriano convicted First Lieutenants San Juan and Rex Bolo, as they did not avail of the amnesty. Consequently, the Court of Appeals cleared them both of their charges in April 2015. Furthermore, Soriano also ignored Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra’s pronouncement that the government’s application does not need a hearing. All these developments are clear proof that there’s no way current President Rodrigo Du30 can be a dictator.
