Marcos’ Wealth: The Difference Between to “Return or Turn Over”

wealth





By: Elena Grace Flores
It is a common question by the Dilawans or Aquino-loyal oppositions that if the wealth for humanity preserved by the late President Ferdinand Marcos is not stolen, why would they offer to “return” 90 percent of it? In fact, it’s a possession that need not to be returned according to case acquittals in courts. However, ex-President Marcos’ will clearly segregates it from the 10% of his family’s inheritance. They are in the hands of trustees. Marcos’ letter in former Vice President Doy Laurel’s possession addressed to Cory Aquino says it all.

Former VP Doy Laurel Witnesses Cory Aquino’s Greed

President Ferdinand E. Marcos gave Doy Laurel a letter addressed to President Corazon Aquino proposing that 90 percent of all his assets worldwide would be given to a foundation in trust for the Filipino people. Unfortunately, Cory ignored Doy.

Marcos to Doy Laurel:
“Please tell Mrs. Aquino to stop sending her relatives. They are proposing so many things, all I want is to die in my country. Tell her to let me come home. I will turn over 90 percent of all my worldly possessions to our people. I will ask only 10 percent for my family. That is much better than her relatives are proposing.”



To Return or to Turn Over Wealth to the People

There is a big difference between the highly publicized alleged “return” of the Marcos wealth versus the “turn over” term of Marcos as shown in his letter to Aquino. His will and testament clearly states that such earthly possessions are for the people’s welfare. Livelihood and educational programs are few of the priorities along with healthcare, disability and retirement benefits. Not to mention national infrastructure, agrarian, and irrigation developments.Plus the rehabilitation of mining and industrial projects.

Imelda Marcos said that her husband was not a thief. His fortune is from his gold trading passion. The senate hearing was a live broadcast by a cable television company. This allows many Filipinos to see for the first time Mrs. Marcos’ stand on the hidden wealth. Nonetheless, they also see for themselves how the mainstream media twists many facts just to discredit the Marcoses.



Not with the Marcoses but with the Trustees

Marcos’ widow pleads with the senate to help her implement her husband’s will and testament for the humanitarian foundation. The assets must be taken from the hands of the trustees. This was her most urgent reason to attend that particular hearing. Unfortunately, the interrogators were only into controversial matters other than to alleviate the sufferings of Filipinos from poverty.

Despite Ill-Gotten Wealth Opinion, Bongbong Marcos and Nancy Binay Work Together for Housing Programs

Bongbong Marcos is often the first to recognize the vital needs of Filipinos. He sets aside boundaries, differences of opinions and grudges to realize these. Senator Nancy Binay, on the other hand, is often misunderstood. The Binay family supports the Marcoses’ return to power. But her opinion on matters relating to the martial law years is given colors. However, it seems that BBM understands and respects individuality. Therefore, he is grateful enough to be in Binay’s company. His vlog on Human Settlements issue shows this. Marcos also gives Binay credit for the job well done regardless of the alleged ill-gotten wealth comment of the lawmaker. z

Sustainable Living First for Filipinos

Bongbong Marcos said that every Filipino wants to live in a peaceful community. So he is very happy to enact the Human Settlements and Urban Development Act that he advocates. He then adds that President Rodrigo Du30’s term is the time for Filipinos to make a decent living. This is in line with the moves of Senator Nancy Binay who seeks re-election. She emphasizes the crucial role of architecture and design for housing projects. This forges the Filipino identity. Binay notes that architects, urban planners, and designers must not overlook the social dimension of their roles in society. Just like Marcos’ logic that the community must have the essential facilities for sustainable living.

Senator Binay’s Good moves

Binay explains that we must remind urban planners and architects of their social purpose in building “human and inclusive” communities. They must be sustainable and reflect the aspirations of the people. Binay lauds architects and designers who continue to push boundaries. She also taps into the Filipino consciousness. Then, stresses the use of materials that are indigenous. This is in the pursuit of building structures that represent Filipino ideals, and aspirations.

Misquoted by the Mainstream Media?

In a speech recently, President Du30 raises doubts about the ill-gotten wealth accusations against the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The black media propaganda alleges that Marcos has stolen up to $10 billion from state coffers during his two-decade rule. This is actually impossible said Senatorial bet, Larry Gadon. Truly because the country does not have that much money. Mainstream media then quotes Senator Nancy Binay saying that the Supreme Court rulings and the compensation on human rights victims are enough proof on the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcoses. The Philippine President, ultimately doubts about that.

Misleading News on Ill-Gotten Wealth

The news on Binay’s comments creates confusion. This is because she is pro-Du30 administration person. The Senator is apparently a strong supporter of the Marcoses’ projects for the people. Simply because she is a humanitarian herself. In fact, she’s the one who passes a bill that gives way to the Senate election fraud investigation in 2016. This compliments Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo.

Individualism Must be Respected

Former Senator Marcos successfully demonstrates how to respect individualism. Therefore, Binay’s opinion if ever is not a good reason to cut ties. This is contrary to what their enemies want to achieve. The alliance of the Binays and the Marcoses gets stronger than ever. Even the sibling rivalry for the mayoral post only proves that there’s no political dynasty in Makati. Both families face criticisms from their detractors in this regard. Despite each serving government official in the commercial district, Ilocos Norte and elsewhere with the notable political names went through the right process during elections. They are merely the people’s choice.

Mocha Uson’s Advocacy

Uson runs under Kasosyo Partylist, which advocates farmers’ welfare. However, she admits that Kasosyo agrees to accommodate her as its nominee even if she would be espousing the rights of migrant workers. The former Communications Assistant was also an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) at one time of her life.

Congress and Not the Senate

The former official heeds Presidential daughter, Mayor Sara Du30-Carpio’s advice to abolish the Makabayan Bloc that allegedly supports communists. This is why she feels that her inclusion is needed there. Bong Go, Bato de la Rosa, Imee Marcos, Pia Cayetano are already running for Senate seats.

Atty. Glenn Chong’s Belief

Atty. Glenn Chong on the other hand campaigns together with Uson in many occasions. He is in favor of federalism, the move to change the name of the Philippines to Maharlika, and most of all electoral reforms that made him popular due to his electoral fraud disclosure by the Comelec itself in connivance with Smartmatic. He also said that he is not keen to get the endorsement of neither the Catholic Church nor President Rodrigo Du30. Chong adds that he wants to win on his own with the help of the people.

Bong Go Hurts Kris Aquino

Despite being known as the President’s sidekick, Bong Go is not new to the circles of elite, business people, and entertainment personalities. Philip Salvador, the father of Kris Aquino’s son, Joshua is even his friend. Both act out some parts of the skit that the actor played with Aquino while the two starred in the 1994 movie Nandito Ako. Salvador declares that he truly loves her and sang the movie’s theme song. The latter then divulges that their joke hurts her. Previously, the President discloses that Go’s family has enourmous wealth that would made it unbelievable for him to be corrupt.

Health is Wealth

Veteran physician Dr. Willie Ong becomes a social media sensation for his helpful tips on almost every health condition. His knowledge in the medical is his tool in helping people especially the poor who need medical help. Dr. Willy is also active in a number of public services in different parts of the country. Ong considers illegal drug addiction as a long-standing problem in the Philippines. To address this, Ong said drug dependents must be given proper attention to help them recover. As a senator, he believes that he can help not just a few but a substantial number of citizens that would help pound wealth into the country.

Atty. Larry Gadon’s Ferdinand Marcos Ill-Gotten Wealth Question Puts Logic into the Black Media Propaganda

By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty, Larry Gadon who runs for Senator in the 2019 elections prides himself as a Marcos loyalist. He addresses the ill-gotten wealth propaganda against the Marcoses straight to the point. He answers the ABS-CBN’s Harapan 2019 moderator with a question; How could there be ill-gotten wealth by the late President Ferdinand Marcos when the country did not have money during his time? If only people can analyze that, no one could deny that it’s a very logical question. z

[VIDEO]: Gadon rejects ill-gotten wealth charge vs Marcoses

Gadon’s Straight Talking

The lawyer behind the impeachment complaint against the former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno runs for Senator. Atty. Gadon, a member of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan political party is confident that Filipinos will vote for him because they are not stupid. They will vote for me because I am not stupid, he added.

Lashing the Typical Poverty Mentality

Gadon said that if elected, he would focus on bills that would improve the economy and the education system, and help overseas Filipino workers. These are in line with the principles of former President Marcos. Gadon explained that he would do his best to solve the problem of inflation and high power rates by pushing for alternative energy sources. This prompts the moderator to push even harder if there’s a possibility that he gets his campaign funds from the Marcoses which he vehemently denies. Gadon slams such typical poverty mentality insinuation.

Alleged Stolen Wealth is a Myth

Gadon need not explain things when he gives his straight to the point answer. No, there’s no wealth that was stolen. It’s simply because there’s nowhere to steal from, he said. The mainstream media recycles the myth that the late Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos must have stolen such wealth in time for the upcoming election. Their eldest daughter, Imee Marcos also runs for the same position alongside Gadon.

PCGG Fiasco

The PCGG estimates the alleged Marcos family’s ill-gotten wealth to be between $5 billion to $10 billion with. “The bulk deposits are allegedly hidden abroad.” The commission recovers over P170 billion of ill-gotten wealth from the Marcoses in the past 30 years. Most of them are already returned to the Marcoses due to lack of evidence according to Gadon. Some of these figures also do not belong to them but to the alleged cronies. A Cojuangco is actually one of these said beneficiaries. The late President Cory Aquino is a Cojuangco. On top of that, now Congresswoman Imelda Marcos accuses the PCGG of stealing from them.

Atrocities by the Aquinos are Greater than Martial Law

The outspoken lawyer also justifies martial law as a necessary step for the President to save the country from communism. He stresses that the fatalities during that time were the results of Joma Sison’s rebellion. Gadon did not fail to mention that human rights violations were even more rampant during the times of the two Aquinos. He reminds the public about the Hacienda Luisita and the Mendiola Massacres ultimately.

Bongbong Marcos: The Country’s Endless Wealth Lies in Helping Each Other

By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos’ virtue of kindness is evident even from the start of his recent BBM Vlog #46 video to his dog. His friends stress this trait of him as his advantage in politics. He is kind not just to people in the higher bracket but to everybody. Like what Bongbong Marcos insinuates; the endless wealth of the country can be done by helping each other. Marcos is a hands-on person in his work as a public servant with or without a title. He is blessed with a great wife. His La Salle peers said that their camaraderie up to this stage became possible through the great man who has a great woman behind him.z

[VIDEO]: Filming this vlog was a trip down memory lane. Looking back, I have been blessed with good times and great friends.

Behaving Like a Juvenile Delinquent

Marcos and his peers are already in their senior years. However, when they have their La Salle Homecoming, they seem to be the boys in shorts as they were during their youth. The son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos is glad that his batch mates are already retired and they can always participate in their social activities in Baguio and elsewhere. In fact, they can act like juvenile delinquents again as he fondly puts it.

Marcos’ Peers in their Senior Years

No competition but brotherhood is the reason why Marcos’ group are intact from then until now. They help each other in whatever endeavor they face. In a country where crab mentality is a culture, this is a breakthrough. One might be okay but if his or her peers are not, it won’t be a happy circumstance. This is a crucial model under the leadership of Marcos when all Filipinos are treating each other kindly. Looking at social media posts, unity is far fetched.

Behind the Success of a Great Man is a Great Woman

In the verge of successes, the virtue of kindness of Marcos can’t be hidden, He is a sincere, warm, and a down to earth person, according to his batch mates. They said that they are very lucky to have Marcos as their brother who is a steward of his father and his own gifts. They are also thankful to his wife, Liza Araneta Marcos who is the woman behind this great man who is the key to their camaraderie.

Marcos’ Hands-On Style of Working

The former governor used to invite his friends to Ilocos when he was still in that position. This was his response when one of his mates tracks him down to participate during their initial homecoming. Despite being hands-on to his constituents’ needs, he manages to return the important call. These friends saw his dedication and good intention for his people and they are one in his service to Filipinos.

Endless Giving and Taking of Wealth

Their 45th homecoming marks their being in the hall of fame. The Marcoses might be wealthy but having friends who voluntarily donate to their charity is vital on his destiny as a future Philippine leader. The law of nature says that the more you give, the more you receive. Therefore, happiness and wealth can overflow only if people learn to be kind like Marcos’ example.
