President Rodrigo Roa Duterte just said that the military is correct in identifying and not red-tagging some members of the NPAs in the Makabayan Bloc party-list group. Pastor Quiboloy immediately echoes this in the same toughness as PDuterte. The authorities are also firm to say that they cannot deny their recruitment activities of young people to join the NPA. Although the Filipino leader agrees with the principles of the late Ferdinand Marcos in this regard, he is actually outdoing the late President with his direct and tough warnings.
The Wisdom of a Pastor
Pastor Quiboloy admires President Duterte’s direct message to the suspected NPAs pretending to be part of the government. He said that it is obvious that their aim is to destroy the government. Just like what they did during the Marcos regime. He pities the rebel group’s members who has a leader with comfortable life in the Netherlands contrary to their poor life in the mountains.
The Opposition’s Weapon
The pastor also slams the detractors of the government. Epecially oppositions who use unfortunate incidents of deaths that the CHR often defend. These are results of gun battles with the military forces. Therefore, he calls them the plaque of the country. Recently, the youngest daughter of a congresswoman died. Then, her mother admits that she is a member of the NPA . However, she is not happy that the photograph of her daughter’s dead body goes viral over social media holding a gun. So, Pastor Quiboloy repeats the warning of the President to stop the insurgency or they will die!
Bongbong Marcos accepts that Associate Justice stays as the magistrate in charge of his election protest against Leni Robredo. However, he appeals to please not sit on the case anymore. Marcos firmly asks Leonen to make a ruling at the soonest possible time.
Talks with the President
Marcos admits that he had talks with the president in private. He does not want to betray the Filipino leader’s trust. So, excuses himself not to divulge any topics during the discussions. However, it is up to the president if he choses to make their exchanges public.
Marcos also said that he has ongoing talks with different groups pertaining to the 2022 elections. He has major plans but he’ll wait and see for the right time to make some announcements or revelations. He honestly hopes that the SC ruling on his protest happens before the filing of his candidacy by October 2021.
Looks like the opposition media now works aggressively. This is to desperately discredit the Marcoses. It is, however, understandable for the early election blues. The national election is yet to come this 2022. Bongbong Marcos now presses the PET for a decision on his protest against Leni Robredo. He is set to run for an important position. May it be for president or Vice President.
Scrutiny on the Numbers – Not on the Facts
A half-truth fact-check is not reliable. This media only disputes the number. It never said that the Marcos gold is not existent. Just a matter of comparing numbers. It generally refers to the cases that the Marcoses had lost and won. Plus of course the mention of their own ill-gotten wealth propaganda. No explaination why the court can never nail the Marcoses down if they really stole the wealth from the people.
History and News
Other basis is the Tallano royal family history and some news on the former First Lady Imelda Marcos’ show of the gold documents. Nevertheless, they also said it themselves that the late Ferdinand Marcos did not mention them in his Tadhana book. Two things very suspicious though. There’s no mention whatsover about the late President Marcos’ will and testament and his first lady’s appeal to the Congress to prioritize its proceeding for the good of the people and the world.
Senator Imee Marcos, sister of the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo said that she is open to good ideas in the country’s current education system during the Coronavirus pandemic. She urges people not to politicize Robredo’s learning hubs. In fact, they also have learning centers in Ilocos Norte to aid families and teachers with the new digital method.
The senator calls on the government to allow blended learning in schools. This is to urgently address the growing number of mental illnesses among young people. The students need some social interaction with peers. The gap between the rich and the poor has also taken a toll among students. Limited blended learning in safer areas are necessary since there’s no evidence that Coronavirus infection is high in this cluster.
The Senator’s Stand on the Learning Policy
Marcos also clarifies that from the start, she is always against the closure of physical schools. The preventive measures in other countries for learning facilities are actually not as strict as in the Philippines. She points out that to restrict students from going to school will have more negative effects on children.
Bongbong Marcos said; We now have a good problem regarding the purchase and distribution of vaccines. However, what matters the most is that the whole world is reaching a solution to end this pandemic. Pfizer of the US is the first to announce a 95% effective Coronavirus vaccine against Covid-19. London’s AstraZeneca is second. Then, Russia and China follow through. They may prioritize their own citizens naturally. But the fact that preventive medicine is already available, the logistics of the storage and monetary deals are somewhat manageable. Of all these immunity substances, only the Pfizer ones need to be frozen. The rest just need normal refrigeration.
50 Million Target
The Philippines aims to have at least 50 million coronavirus vaccine shots next year. Recently it also agrees to buy 2 million doses for AstraZeneca. Marcos points out that once they are made available in the country, the frontliners must have them first. These include the medical workers, police, and professions that are in the front line of service to the people.
Option to Buy
Those who reside in communities that are at a high risk of infection must also receive provisions from the government as a preventive measure, added Marcos. The herd concept says that when around 70% or most of the population are already immune, the virus will naturally disappear. Therefore those who can afford to get the vaccine should avail it at their convenience to help beat the deadly disease. The questions is, how much will it cost initially?
