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.

Marcos’ Lawyer Agrees with Panelo that Voiding Trillanes’ Amnesty is Constitutional

amnesty





By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice Presidential Protestant Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer agrees with Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo that President Rodrigo Du30’s decision to declare void ab initio (void from the beginning) the amnesty granted to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is constitutional. He should surrender himself to authorities because an amnesty is a conditional pardon. He must stay loyal to the current government and not to the previous one. All he has to do is present the proof of acceptance for his application which he failed to do so. He can stay in jail while fighting for his case. The same with the former senators Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla. His can is somewhat similar to the quo warranto petition of the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno when after investigation, her SALN was incomplete.

The Presidential Defense

Panelo is coming to the defense of President Du30’s decision of declaring void ab initio, Trillanes’ amnesty. He is arguing that the President’s decision is constitutionally allowed.  Furthermore, Panelo is saying that Trillanes is abusing the grant of amnesty by not complying with the terms and conditions.




Proclamation No. 572

With the signing of Proclamation No. 572 by President Du30, the amnesty granted to Trillanes is declared void ab initio. This is due to Trillanes failing to submit his original amnesty application to the Department of National Defense.  This was for the crimes he has done in 2003’s Oakwood Mutiny and 2007’s Manila Peninsula Siege.




Trillanes’ Offense

Panelo is saying that Trillanes is essentially committing the same crime again. He is bombarding President Du30 with accusations that he has no proof of. Now, that he is called to answer his own crimes, he’s taking refuge at the Senate.



The Right of the President

To protect itself from assault, the government has the right to protect itself through the President. To quote Panelo, “As Chief Executive and Head of Government, he has the power to issue orders protective of the State and its people. This is in line with the prime duty of the government to serve and protect the people under Article II, Section 4 of the 1987 Constitution.”




Warrant of Arrest

Panelo further adds that even without the concurrence of Congress, the amnesty can be voided. As he says, “Senator Trillanes has abused a grant of amnesty, albeit void, and it compels its nullification by the President – official authority who is considered by the 1987 Constitution as the grantor of executive clemencies.”

By: Elena Grace Flores

Vice Presidential protestant against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo, Bongbong Marcos gives his actual updates on the case during the interview with Erwin Tulfo. Marcos said that the Supreme Court that sits as the PET must make a decision on what to do with those questionable ballots. He also has high hopes that the new Chief Justice Teresita De Castro can set directions on his protest during the short 5 weeks of her term before her retirement.

The Supreme Court to Decide on the Questionable Ballots

The Supreme Court is beginning a manual recount of the votes. However, Bongbong Marcos calls the PET’s attention to the questionable ballots. Some have been doused only recently, while several audit logs are missing.




Wet Ballots

Starting the recount from Bato Camarines Sur, there were already problems. 4 out of 42 voting precincts had the ballots wet. Consequently, the ballots are illegible. Furthermore, 38 precincts in Bato have the audit logs missing.



Robredo’s Demands

The camp of VP Robredo wants the PET to have the ballots where the ovals are shaded less than 50% but higher than 25% to be segregated. Robredo’s lawyers are also asking the PET to immediately resolve the April 18 resolution. They want the PET to reconsider the decision of a 50% threshold for vote validity.




Macalintal Dares Marcos on the Use of Ballot Images

Macalintal is now challenging Marcos. The picture images of the ballots should be used to determine the real results of the previous election. With the Comelec’s affirmation that the 25% threshold was used, Marcos’ claim that the threshold wasn’t used in the 2016 elections is now exposed as false, said the veteran lawyer. He also comments that Marcos is afraid to know the truth.



Atty. Rodriguez Blasts the Comelec’s Connivance with Robredo

Marcos’ lawyer, Vic Rodriguez is now calling the Comelec as a co-conspirator of VP Robredo, in response to Macalintal. Furthermore, Atty. Glenn Chong reveals the information that at least one SD card had been tampered with upon checking. Chong continues that with each card containing 500 votes, by switching machines, the 5000 extra SD cards could have been used to produce 2 million votes in favor of the victor during the 2016 VP race.

Moving Forward with Bongbong Marcos to the Nation’s Progress for the Mid-term Election

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

The Marcos loyalists movement in Dapitan like any chapters nationwide aims to help local officials for the progress of the nation. All these initiatives are moving forward together with Inday’s Sara’s Hugpong political party, This is vital for the mid-term election in 2019 for a better and safer Philippines with more opportunities for an improved lifestyle, said Bongbong Marcos. Meanwhile, the PET denies Marcos’ motion asking for Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. It justifies by saying that being a Pnoy appointee does not make him bias. This is actually fair enough for as long as any future rulings in favor of Marcos won’t be blamed to the new SC Chief Justice Teresita de Castro.

[VIDEO]: It’s always humbling to meet the people who were there for us during our toughest battles. It’s even more humbling to learn that they’re still there for us. Thank you for this humbling surprise, Marcos Loyalist Movement — Dapitan chapter!




Growing Family

Bongbong Marcos was filled with joy when he was invited to an induction ceremony of the Marcos Loyalist Movement. Moreover, it is the first batch of officers who are being inducted. To quote Marcos, “I was honored to join the Marcos Loyalist Movement during the induction of their inaugural batch of officers in Dapitan City, Zamboanga Del Norte,”. He also adds, “Knowing there’s a family I can count on inspires me to continue my fight for truth and genuine public service. Thank you very much for the trust!”.




Du30 – Marcos Alliance for the Mid-term Election

For the 2019 Mid-term elections, Sara Duterte is endorsing Sen, Cynthia Villar, Gov. Imee Marcos and Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu. They are among those who are also endorsed by her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago. Imee Marcos believes that the Hugpong ng Pagbabago will be the voice of Mindanao. On Monday, she had formally formed an alliance with the HnP. She compares the HnP to the Solid North, the regional alliance of the Marcos Family. Like the Solid North, HnP’s approach is very local, unlike that of a traditional party.

 


The PET’s Neutrality

In a 14-page resolution dated Aug. 28, the SC, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), denied Marcos’ motion asking for Caguioa’s inhibition from the case for utter lack of merit. “The foregoing shows that Justice Caguioa’s conduct of the matters in this protest has been nothing but impartial. Further, it bears reiterating that all decisions of the Tribunal have been arrived at through majority vote of all the members of the Court sitting en banc. As provided under Rule 66 of the 2010 PET Rule,” the PET said.




En Banc Process of the Election Tribunal

Marcos earlier accused Caguioa of “evident bias and manifest partiality” in favor of Robredo. In his extremely urgent motion to inhibit, Marcos accused Caguioa of bias towards the “yellow brigade” as he took note that the magistrate has close ties with former President Benigno Aquino III.  The PET, however, rejected the motion and sternly warned” Marcos and his lawyers that “any unfounded and inappropriate accusation made in the future will be dealt with more severely.” It said that Caguioa “has been nothing but impartial” in his conduct of matters involved in Marcos’ protest against Robredo, and explained that all decisions have been reached through a majority vote of the Court en banc.




Constitutional Transition towards the New Golden Age

The current action of the PET is part of the constitutional process. This is necessary to assure the public that the decisions they make are from the en banc. Not just from a single magistrate. Since the alliance between President Du30 and Bongbong Marcos is already proven to be formidable, the Filipinos are certain that a favorable ruling on Marcos’ protest against Robredo can happen soon. It only takes time because of the constitutional processes necessary. With the emerging alliance between Imee Marcos and Sara Du30-Carpio for the upcoming election, there’s no stopping to moving forward towards the new golden age phenomenon. This growing alliance is the cause of optimism to some, and bouts of sleepless nights to others.

Bongbong Marcos is one with Gov. Imee to Move on from 1986 but Not on his Protest

protest





By: Elena Grace Flores

The troubled Vice President, Leni Robredo once urged Bongbong Marcos to move on from his alleged defeat during the 2016 VP race. Marcos replied by saying that he cannot do so because his election protest is still ongoing. He is determined more than ever, to restore democracy through a clean and honest election. However, he agrees with his sister, Gov. Imee Marcos to move on from the martial law issues. The Marcos regime then was already toppled in 1986. It’s done, he added.






Youtube video by INQUIRER.net

[VIDEO]: Answering questions on the issue of his father’s strongman rule, former senator Bongbong Marcos said that the proposed abolition of the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) is proof that their critics should “move on.”




Macalintal’s Criticism against Marcos

Macalintal is criticising Bongbong Marcos about not being able to “move on” from his electoral protest. To quote Macalintal “A very childish attitude of an election loser who cannot accept defeat in good grace. Such a statement is so unbecoming of a man who projects himself as highly capable to lead as vice president of the country,” Macalintal added.




Protest Blame Game?

It seems to Macalintal that Marcos is just looking for someone to blame for losing in the VP election. He is so confident that he would win the elections. First, he blames the Comelec as a conspirator of the Robredo camp in an alleged electoral fraud. Macalintal adds, “After accepting the integrity of the automated election system, Marcos is now blaming the alleged bias of Associate Justice Alfredo Caguioa against him and in favor of Robredo,” Macalintal insinuates. To note, Marcos never accepted the integrity of the 1986 election but agrees with the PET to set aside the issue to fast-track the recount.

 

False Confidence

With Marcos only being able to accept closure if he wins the protest, Macalintal further criticizes him. “But, sorry to say, he will stay put or remain without moving because he will never win his election protest since nobody wins an election protest on the mere allegation that the judge is biased in favor of the other party,” he adds. Furthermore, Macalintal also points out that with the results of recounts of the ballots tallying with the electronic results, no one ever won an election protest even back on the 2010 automated elections. This theory of Macalintal is already proven wrong by Atty. Glenn Chong. Besides, Marcos’ case is the first protest at the national level to reach the recount stage.

 









Enrile Defends the Late Ferdinand Marcos

Senator Enrile also explains in a separate interview that atrocities during the Marcos era should be attributed to him. He is saying that he knows more than the Anti-Marcos media propagandists. What he says are the actual facts. The previous victors just wrote their history to highlight their supposed sacrifices for their own political advantage.




Marcos is Thankful to Supporters

Marcos is grateful for the support and love from those loyal to him. His supporters are staying by his side as his electoral protest is still pending. Currently, a pro-Marcos Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Teresita de Castro has been appointed by President Rodrigo Du30. She is only two months away from retirement. If Robredo managed to be VP overnight with the aid of Smartmatic, Marcos can also be the leader he is destined to be in the blink of an eye.
