Credit is Due to President Du30: Nation Building with another Marcos is a Better One

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

During the commemoration of Yolanda’s (Haiyan) first anniversary last November 8, 2014, former Mayor Alfred Romualdez, Bongbong Marcos’ cousin urged the Aquino administration to build back Tacloban for them. He lamented that the priority was not building back their lives. The previous government was always after the economy and they don’t get a good share of that. Recently, Marcos himself inspects the place and other parts of Leyte that needed rehabilitation. He is happy to announce that the credit for building better is due to the current President Du30.

Building a More Egalitarian System of Government

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos said he is planning to return to politics as president of the Philippines. This is years after he lost as the country’s second-highest leader. In an interview, Marcos said he is aspiring to get the government’s top post. “My career is political, and, of course, you aspire to as high a stature within your chosen field as you can achieve – and that would be president in my case,” he said. Marcos added that he will build a “more egalitarian system of government.”




A Society with Equal Opportunities

Egalitarian is relating to or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities. It cannot be denied that there’s a big gap between the rich and the poor in the country today. The masses certainly do not have the same access to quality training, networking, credit or investment facilities than those who can afford them.

Bring Back Nation Building

“In my father’s administration, I kept hearing ‘nation-building’, and I do not hear that phrase anymore,” he said. “It’s more politicking than nation-building,” Marcos added. He was also quick to dismiss corruption allegations against his family, saying: “None of the cases that were filed against us have been won.” Despite the accusations, he suffers on behalf of his father, he remains forgiving and still aims for unity among Filipinos.









The Return of another Marcos is a Better One

The younger Marcos is believed to lead the nation at one point. This is the prediction of unbiased political analysts, astrologers, and fortune tellers. Uncertainties might loom in his VP electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo for cheating during the 2016 election. However, this also serves as a good way of promoting his presidential bid may it be for 2019 or 2022. Regardless, the credit still goes to the good President Du30 who believes in the Marcoses.

Stronger Alliance: President Du30 Shows High Regard to Bongbong, Imee Marcos & the Romualdez Couple in the Tacloban Event

Alliance





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Du30-Marcos alliance continues despite the slow progress of the VP electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo. The President is the guest of honor during the recent Sangyaw Festival in Tacloban. Mayor Cristina Romualdez meets the President upon his arrival. Bongbong Marcos, Gov. Imee Marcos, and Alfred Romualdez are also present.  They all gather in the place where the inefficiency of the previous administration is most felt during the devastation of typhoon Yolanda.

Sangyaw Festival

Sangyaw Festival is a religious and socio-cultural event in the Philippines. It was revived in 2008 by the city government of Tacloban, Philippines. Sangyaw means “to herald news” in Waray language. Various festival-participants from different parts of the country participate in this tribal procession. It is celebrated on the 29th day of June, as with the Pintados Festival celebration. Imelda Marcos, the former Philippine First Lady, conceptualized this festival on the year 1974.




The Most Beautiful Mayor

In the eyes of the President, Mayor Kring Kring or Cristina Romualdez is the most beautiful mayor not only in the Philippines but in the world. He gently explained that his compliment has no malice. He said it right from the heart.




Courtesy to Imee Marcos and Alfred Romualdez

It is not a secret that the President is very fond of Bongbong Marcos’ sister, Gov. Imee Marcos. She did not miss the event for the world. She serves as the backup force of the mayor. Du30 also commends the presence of Mayor Romualdez’ husband, former Mayor Alfred Romualdez.









Bongbong Marcos’ Smile Speaks of the Alliance

The former Senator might be disappointed with the anomalies during the ongoing recount but his smile says it all when it comes to his alliance with the President. He knows that it’s just a matter of time that the Du30-Marcos tandem would be realized. Actions speak louder than words at this point.

Should Bongbong Marcos Get Involved with DSWD to Know Where Yolanda Funds Went?

funds





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos is greatly involved in the rehabilitation of Leyte after Super Typhoon Yolanda four years ago in his personal capacity as the cousin of Tacloban Mayor, Alfred Romualdez. Rejected Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo who insists that no billions of pesos worth of funds reached the department during her tenure has no replacement yet. She, however, shows her reluctance to work with Bongbong Marcos if ever he becomes a part of President Du30’s cabinet in an interview. Taguiwalo is a notable anti-Marcos as a leftist. It’s a different ball game now because if there was no Marcos before, there’s definitely no Taguiwalo now. Although the hope for Marcos’ return is still on the rise with the pending recount on his electoral protest against Leni Robredo.

[VIDEO]: Rejected Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Judy Taguiwalo said she is not sure what would happen if Senator Bongbong Marcos joins the cabinet of President-elect Rodrigo Du30.

 




Taguiwalo’s CA Rejection

Taguiwalo was the third Cabinet member rejected by the CA. The social activist-educator would remain the President’s friend. It is also unlikely that Vice President Leni Robredo can replace Taguiwal. Some netizens recommend this in an online survey. It is an uncomfortable scenario if the President allows that. She is known to oppose all the major moves of Du30 behind his back. Not during cabinet meetings.




The Government’s Commitment

The country commemorates the fourth anniversary of Super Typhoon Yolanda. Its international name is Haiyan. Malacañang reaffirms the government’s commitment to rebuilding communities affected by the disaster. This is amidst continued cries for shelter among victims. Palace spokesman Harry Roque assures the public that President Rodrigo Du30 would not turn his back on Yolanda victims. The Du30 administration learned from the past mistakes of the Aquino government when it comes to dealing with Yolanda’s devastation.

Yolanda’s Anniversary

Du30 visited Yolanda victims in Tacloban City last year. He openly expressed his frustration over the slow housing projects for the super typhoon survivors. The Chief Executive returned to Tacloban in January. he still complains that not all his expectations are met. This year, however, Du30 is not in the country during the Yolanda anniversary, November 8. He attends the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Vietnam. This could be very handy for Bongbong Marcos if he is the Vice President.









Bongbong Marcos’ Passionate Hand Might be Needed

The National Housing Authority or NHA data shows that 205,128 houses are for construction. But only 11.4 percent are occupied. Only 33 percent is complete. Although they believe that the real figures are much lower. Roque said that the President backs moves to hold those who caused delays in housing projects accountable. This is for their apparent negligence. Bongbong Marcos has yet to comment on this. Perhaps, his involvement is needed here. Also, Senator Manny Pacquiao earlier suggested conducting a Senate probe where the big chunk of Yolanda funds went.




Palace: No replacement yet for Taguiwalo

4 years later, Yolanda victims still cry for shelter

The Philippines can never recover quickly without the help of the international community after typhoon Yolanda devastated badly the Eastern part of the country  particularly in the Visayas region. Even the Vietnamese, Australians and more from the Americans are still coming in on top of the monetary donations, relief facilities, equipment and goods from many foreign countries with or without strong political ties. Truly, that a calamity can either unite or divide mankind. Here’s the good news:

PH receives ‘Yolanda’ aid from int’l community

By: Cristina Lee-Pisco

MORE than three decades after the Philippines opened its doors to Vietnamese refugees, the Vietnamese have returned the favor with a donation of more than P19 million to support reliefefforts for victims of typhoon Yolanda. http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/news/national/63114-ph-receives-yolanda-aid-from-intl-community


Sightings of the “Not For Sale” ready-to-eat meal packages from the U.S. were reported and allegedly being sold in few public markets in Manila. It’s still a mystery how they got there – but the government has vowed to investigate this. Hope that this will not discourage international people from donating some more. Perhaps, proper logistics must be implemented to make sure that the aids meant for the survivors will be delivered to them accordingly.

Funeral as a Social Event in the Philippines


welcome

I just recently attended the wake of the mother of our Baranggay Chairman – and this is where you can find nicely arranged flowers, dignified people and lots of refreshments. You can also meet a long lost acquaintance in funeral by chance if you are a native of the place or active in social gatherings. That’s why my heart goes with the victims of typhoon Yolanda. No proper burial nor identification. Read this:

Globe in the Philippines: Funeral efforts marred by decay

By: NATHAN VANDERKLIPPE

As the truck lumbers past the rubble-strewn remains of Tacloban City, onlookers pull shirts over their faces and use fingers to plug their noses. The truck is laden with death, 34 people killed by Typhoon Haiyan. Their decay, after five days in the heat and humidity, creates a stench that blankets the street as the truck passes by. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/rebel-attack-disrupts-mass-burial-effort-in-typhoon-ravaged-city/article15409537/



I initiated a call to the Secretary of National Defense through Facebook to help NBI do the military protocol for the casualties. This may be too late because most bodies are already dumped into the mass graves without knowing who they are – which will really give a hard time for the survivors to get over in mourning the death of their loved ones. However, I hope and pray that this will serve as a lesson for all – and the very reason why I documented this!
