The United Nationalist Alliance is pushing towards unity.  According to UNA President Nancy Binay, they are open to a coalition to even the Liberal Party. With the country rife with political divisions, this may be hard to understand. Nevertheless, it is all to reach the unity idealism that Bongbong Marcos is calling for.

LP is Welcome for Unity

Binay opens UNA’s doors to all including the Liberal Party. The LP, right now, is under Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan. He and other members of the Liberal Party are vocal in their critiques against the Du30 administration. Nonetheless, this is not limited to the party alone. In fact, the noisiest detractor, Senator Antonio Trillanes is not from the LP. He is from the Nacionalista Party. However, he is noted to have the rebellious behavior of the yellow group.



No Exception

UNA is also opening its doors to the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino and the Nationalist People’s Coalition, Binay discloses that with the senators who run for reelection, they are committed to helping each other in their campaigns.

Senatorial Bets

Senators running for reelection this 2019 includes Grace Poe, Bam Aquino, Cynthia Villar, JV Estrada, Koko Pimentel, and Sonny Angara. Ranking in third in the Pulse Asia Survey, Binay is also vowing to work hard in campaigning. She says that there is no room to be complacent.



Bongbong Marcos Ideology

With the protests against former President Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Marcos is calling for unity. He is especially grateful towards President Duterte for recognizing his father’s service to the nation. Furthermore, Duterte also called for forgiveness and for human rights victims to present their cases to court.




UNA Echoes Marcos’ Unity Call

Marcos’ call for unity is universal. Consequently, the Bicolanos warmly accepts this and agrees that unity is what we need for the country to progress.  They believe that if there can be unity, then the country can move forward. UNA’s coalition to all political parties is in line with Marcos’ call. After all, the yellow mentality of the opposition is not confined within the LP camp. Opposing factions also exist in other political parties. Likewise, Marcos needs the support of other parties also for his bid in the executive office. That is why he is thankful to Senator Binay for filing the law that enables the Senate to investigate the 2016 election fraud.

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.”

Senator Trillanes can be Right on SolGen Calida’s Hand to Pave the Way for Marcos

senator





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 revokes the grant of amnesty to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for failure to comply with its minimum requirements, Malacanang said. Consequently, The Department of Justice and the Armed Forces’ court-martial were instructed to “pursue all criminal and administrative cases” against Trillanes over military uprisings in 2003 and 2007, according to a copy of Du30’s proclamation, which was confirmed by Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra. The rebellious Senator is so sure that his demise is the work of SolGen Jose Calida who acts as the terminator for the administration’s foes. Calida has been instrumental for the removal of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. Then, he filed a manifestation backing the 50% ballot shading threshold that favors the interest of former Senator Bongbong Marcos on his electoral protest against the presumptive VP Leni Robredo.

Senator Trillanes Failed to Comply

With Senator Trillanes’ failure to comply with the minimum requirements, the amnesty grant is declared void. Moreover, As stated in the proclamation, “The grant of amnesty to former LTSG Antonio Trillanes IV under Proclamation No. 75 is declared void ab initio because he did not comply with the minimum requirements to qualify under the Amnesty Program.”



Arresting the Rebel

Now, both the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police are tasked to apprehend Senator Trillanes. Trillanes has criminal and administrative charges in relation to the Oakwood Mutiny of 2003 as well as the Manila Peninsula incident of 2007.  Trillanes is to be recommitted back to the PNP Custodial Center with both the PNP and the AFP to employ all lawful means.



Pnoy’s Amnesty

It was Pnoy who granted amnesty to Trillanes by signing Proclamation No. 50 back in October 2010. Consequently, Trillanes led the Oakwood mutiny in 2003 and the Manila Peninsula siege in 2007 against Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s administration.



Blaming SolGen Calida

Consequently, Trillanes is questioning the legal effect of the EO and attributes it to SolGen Calida. Moreover, he had repeated conflicts with Calida. Furthermore, Aquino’s proclamation allegedly concurred with by the Congress. However, Guevarra says that for Proclamation No.572, the Congress concurrence is not needed because it was void ab initio.



Just a Matter of Time

Trillanes holds the timing as questionable. Consequently, the Senate is set to investigate on an issue that implicates SolGen Calida. Furthermore, he continues that President Du30’s timing in Israel that coincides with the Palace order is very suspicious. He suspects that the President pretends to have no knowledge about his fate. Trillanes presumes that his arrest is the work of Calida to the President’s delight. Perhaps, just in time for the upcoming Marcos takeover.

Trillanes’ Stunts: Yellow Cult Propaganda against Ferdinand Marcos now on Du30

propaganda





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

President Du30 who goes against the rule of oligarchs is now under the LP propaganda attacks. This is clear in the Singapore stunts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. That is not different from the Martial Law history as written by the Yellow Cult. Trillanes thought that he can bring down the Philippine leader by proving that he is a liar. He even enjoys the support of most mainstream media. However, the President already warned that he will do to Trillanes what he has done to him and his family. It’s a game plan. Lie after Lies.






Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net

[VIDEO]: President Du30 said that the number of the bank account that Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV used to verify in Singapore is the one he shortened and not the real one as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson.



Misleading Headline

It reads in most mainstream media that President Du30 admits that he invented the number of the bank account Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. This is after the coverage of the Senator’s trip to Singapore hits media channels.  The truth is, the President shortened the actual number as mentioned by Erwin Tulfo and Mocha Uson. He’s actually amused that his trick worked. That triggered Trillanes to fly immediately to Singapore just to discredit him.



Marcos Regime Victors

The victors of the Marcos Regime demise was led by the houses of Cojuangco and Lopez. They run the biggest media empire before Martial Law.  They consummate links with politicians. The Lopezes were experts in propaganda. They know how to mold a nation’s consciousness for its benefit. Trillanes is one good example of a government official who works for his own interest and not for the people.



Marcos now has the Social Media Advantage

The Marcoses never become skilled in, or they are not as appreciative of, the value of propaganda as the Lopezes. When the late Marcos was successful to declare Martial Law, his accusation that the Lopezes led the “extreme Right” that allied itself with the “extreme Left” was not properly circulated. It’s only now that social media exists as a powerful tool for everyone to use for information dissemination that the truth becomes a number game.








No Denial

The President operates without pretentions. This is the reason why most people love him despite his vulgarity. He vows to destroy Trillanes as he destroys him. The mocking Senator is known for his extreme lies. Du30 simply gives him a taste of his own medicine. The propaganda stints basically signal the beginning of another battle. It will not be surprising that the President would strongly push for a Bongbong Marcos presidency as he sacrifices himself as the bait for the yellow cult.

Sept 21 Marks the Civility of the Marcoses Particularly Bongbong and Imee

civility





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As the “yellows” get ready to oust the President of Sept. 21, Du30 calls the Commission on Human Rights Chair Chito Gascon names. This coincides with the 45th anniversary of Martial Law declaration under the Marcos regime. Since the time of the late Ferdinand Marcos, politics has been passionate and personal. Word wars are common sometimes fist fights can happen. However, the Marcos patriarch, his wife, and children maintain their civility despite the odds. They never use “below the belt” expressions to describe their enemies.

Demonized by Society

The Marcos family has been severely demonized in social media memes, rally placards, and history textbooks. This includes those written by journos who pretend to be historians. It spread through classroom lectures, speeches, training workshops for history teachers, creative works, and artistic performances. Even homilies of priests during masses also contain unfair judgments. Nevertheless, the Marcoses provide society a powerful lesson on civility in political discourse.



Example of Civility

The Marcos political dynasty, from former President Ferdinand Marcos to his wife Rep. Imelda Marcos shows civility. This continued to their more politically engaged children, former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Gov. Imee Marcos. Thus, a shining example of civility in political discourse. The third child, Irene-Marcos Araneta, is a model of dignity in silence.



Restrained Talks

Imee Marcos is always restrained when she talks about their political enemies. She did not launch a vitriolic counter-offensive even against Rep. Rudy Fariñas. She never said any demeaning word against their political enemies and critics. On the other hand, in the election controversy that surrounds the 2016 vice-presidential elections, there is no single instance that Bongbong Marcos directly accused Vice President Leni Robredo of being a cheat and a fraud – contrary to her being vocal on calling his family “thieves” with regards to the wealth for humanity.








Bad-Mouthing Saga

Meanwhile, the legislators, who strongly criticized President Du30, are part of the coalition who wants to unseat him. That would favor their LP bet, Robredo. Senators Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros and Antonio Trillanes IV and Representatives Teddy Baguilat, Tom Villarin and Gary Alejano attended its launch. They are all bad-mouthing the President and the Marcoses. Du30 retaliates but the Marcoses remain as they are.
