As the Defense Secretary back then, it was Juan Ponce Enrile who planned the mutiny that grew into the People Power Revolution by mistake. Enrile was wary of the political factions in the palace when then President Ferdinand Marcos was ill. One cabal was led by the former Armed Forces Chief of Staff Fabian Ver and Imelda. The real enemies were unknown to him at the time but the demonization of Marcos through the media was so intense. However, Enrile always sought for the approval of the late Marcos in every step that he made. All these efforts were to help save the first family.

False Branding Claim
The People Power had been attributed to the Aquino Family ever since it happened. Almost as if it is their franchise, they use it to their political advantage. However, during the most dangerous and first night of the movement, Corazon Aquino was hiding in Cebu, in a convent. Furthermore, his son was too busy in other things as well and hadn’t participated. Nevertheless, with massive media stunts, they were tied with the movement.
Cory’s Blame Game via the Media
When Ninoy was killed, Corry blamed Marcos. She then launched a destabilization campaign. Marcos was then forced to call a snap election, wherein he was confident to win. Back in 1982, the county’s economy was stable but after the murder of Ninoy, things went south. Ultimately, Cory’s destabilization campaign worked.
Enrile was down on to deciding to make a last stand. They decided to hold it at the AFP headquarters. He made a call to the Vice Chief of Staff Lieut. Gen. Fidel V. Ramos. Their allegiance was assured, but it was not until late in the evening of Feb. 22 that Ramos was able to join them in Camp Aguinaldo.
Wrong People Power Beneficiary
Because of the People Power, the Aquinos were granted two presidencies. But what did the people gain in these two presidencies? They cannot even solve the assassination case of their own patriarch. That made one speculation even grow stronger. That a relative of the late Cory Aquino is responsible. It would be pathetic to kill their own to gain power.
Marcos did not Cheat
After Cory’s ascension to the presidency, Namfrel conducted a recount. In the recount, Marcos still won by 800,000 votes. Furthermore, in the official count sanctioned by the Comelec, Marcos was the official winner by a margin of 1.7 million votes. It is now clear that Cory Aquino was never elected by the people. The same doubts go to the son, Noynoy. He could have won because of the digital election system manipulation made possible by the conniving Comelec and Smartmatic. Currently, Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest for the Vice Presidency is still ongoing. Atty. Glenn Chong’s technical evidence shows that the present VP, Leni Robredo may be illegitimate.
