Bongbong Marcos and his son came up with a few tips on how to make the long Undas weekend fun for the family. Gatherings can be interesting without alcohol and gambling at cemeteries. Wholesome activities bring harmony and peace to the memories of the deceased loved ones. Despite the 2016 election chaos, the Marcoses knew for sure that everything will come to pass. This is because no amount of criticism can undo the people’s memory of a public servant’s good performance like that of the Marcos patriarch. He urges his detractors that instead of finding fault in others using the dead, they should do their job well and let their track record speak for themselves.

Election Support for the Future Senator

This week, the Marcos family came out in full support for Gov. Imee Marcos, as she filed her candidacy for Senator. This simply shows a solid family that can build a strong nation. The former Senator has no doubts that given his sister’s vast experience as a former Congresswoman, along with her 9 years as Governor in their hometown province, Gov. Marcos will definitely be an asset in the Senate.


Nostalgic Moments

Bongbong Marcos reminisces that he filed his candidacy for Senator in 2010 and eight years later, his sister did the same. So he couldn’t help but feel nostalgic when his Manang Imee asked him to accompany her to COMELEC.


Appointment of the Next SC Chief Justice

The Chief Justice post was vacated by Teresita Leonardo de Castro who retired last October 10. President Du30 earlier said he chose De Castro since she was the most senior among the three justices in the shortlist. When asked if he would appoint Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio for the same reason, Du30 only said: “I will decide when I cross the bridge.” Carpio has repeatedly criticized some of the President’s policies, particularly the administration’s allegedly soft stance on the South China Sea dispute. Carpio also previously focused on the late Ferdinand Marcos’s alleged ineligibility to be interred at LNMB. This was because of the sovereign action of the people of removing him from office as President and Commander-in-Chief, he said.



Continuous Bilateral Ties with China

The Chinese consulate general office has formally opened in President Rodrigo Du30’s hometown, Davao City. Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. welcomed the Chinese consulate. He hailed it as a “testament to an immemorial friendship” between the Philippines and China. Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi inaugurated the consulate. His two-day visit would include bilateral meetings with Locsin and other officials that started during the Marcos regime. Locsin discusses the relevant partnership with Wang on trade, investments, infrastructure, tourism, and agriculture plus education, and anti-narcotics among others.


Relaxing Undas Tips

Playing the guitar, cleaning cemetery spots, writing Christmas lists, and many more family activities might be simple but they can surely take away the burden of issues like election cheatings, the appointment of the next Supreme Court Justice, and the possible joint-exploration with China in the South China Sea on top of the other joint ventures.

Binay-Locsin Testimony: Two-thirds of Filipinos favor Marcos’ “Libingan” burial


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Outgoing Vice President Jojo Binay was serious when he said; he knew a lot about outgoing President Benigno Simeon Aquino III’s self-serving acts – the reason why he went against their NoyBi- alliance. He no longer do things for the benefit of the majority but only for his interests as inclined by Binay. One of these acts was documented by Teodoro or Teddy Boy Locsin in his writing. Pnoy as he is called by the masses left it to Vice President Binay, to handle the request of the late Ferdinand E. Marcos’s burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani and Binay said; let the people decide. Therefore he commissioned a survey. The survey showed two-thirds of Filipinos favor a Marcos burial in Libingan ng mga Bayani with full honors.

However, Binay is forced to set the survey result aside since Pnoy was against it. Instead he offered to bury Marcos but with all the honors where he is now in Ilocos. Marcos would then receive the same burial but the only difference is, he was first laid to rest above ground, then next time following Binay’s suggestion, he will be interred underground. Out of sight, out of mind. The Marcoses were of course adamant with the offer. The offer has been rescinded from that time on.

According to Locsin in 2011 as he documented that was ignored by major commercial media as always; “Marcos should be buried for what he was, a former president, twice elected in democratic elections. Oppositors say he destroyed Philippine democracy. That is not a disqualification. He was democratically elected president, twice. While he destroyed democracy, in order to save it, according to him, the people ratified martial law in a referendum. The Supreme Court validated the dictatorship as constitutional. So it was legal. Marcos was never impeached; he did nothing illegal to forfeit his right to be buried with other presidents not all of whom wanted to buried there.”
