South China Sea Dispute Needs Hearings
Bongbong Marcos simply divulges that China is not a member of the UNCLOS. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) is an international treaty. Although the arbitral ruling in favor of the Philippines puts weight into its claim in the disputed South China Sea territories, it has no hold. First, the Chinese government vehemently ignores it. To implement the decision, hearings must be done. Again, China won’t comply and no one can force them to do so.
Diplomatic and Bilateral Dealings
Marcos’ father, the late president Ferdinand Marcos already had diplomatic ties with China in the past. President Duterte does the same. This is the only strategy that can’t put the country into the losing end. Joint explorations, beneficial trades, and other activities can have some smooth negotiations. Bilateral agreements that can identify the responsibilities of each country are also a big help. Therefore, these efforts must continue.
Forcing China to follow the arbitral ruling on the South China Sea dispute can trigger war. International bodies with America in the forefront must use war-like interrogations. Those could not scare the Chinese. This is why pro-American politicians insist on it. It means bigger sales for their armaments. While the Philippines could become the guinea pig, Marcos insinuates. So, Filipinos must be wise in dealing with China. After all, the Filipino-Chinese community is already dominant in the country. We certainly can co-exist.
How to Bridge the Generation Gap by Bongbong Marcos?
To bridge the generation gap during the internet age is very challenging for seniors. Bongbong Marcos starts from analyzing TikTok. He initially thought that they are just dancing exhibitions. But realizes that it can be educational. Should he do one or not?
Entertainment Plus More
Marcos admits that TikTok is not just entertaining. He learns many things from it. Practitioners in any field can explain medical myths, legal matters, and simply romantic techniques in a humorous way. Thus, to allow fun learning. Therefore education should not be boring. This is why many youngsters are subscribers of the app. Adults should too. This will definitely bridge the generation gap.
To TikTok or Not
The likely presidential bet may hear the calls of online supporters to try TikTok. He would surely not dance because according to him, he has no talent in that area. Perhaps singing will do. However, there are many things he can do for his country that he could probably explain better using this popular application. So, let’s watch out for it.
First Filipino Olympics Medalist Salutes the President
The first-ever Filipino Olympics gold medalist, Hidilyn Diaz insists to remain standing while waiting for the President online. It’s her way of getting the opportunity to salute the president at once. In return, President Rodrigo Duterte salutes her back towards the end of the digital presidential audience. Such mutual respect melts the heart of Filipinos. There’s no more space for the media’s sensationalizing the matrix issue in the past.
Hidilyn Diaz has Nothing to Explain
Hidilyn Diaz is also a second-class air force officer. On the matrix issue, she said that she has nothing to explain. She simply does not know anything about it. Diaz does give integrity to her affiliation by displaying such humility. Thus she deserves the promotion to first class. Both President Duterte and her display the real Filipino character. Just by being respectful to one another. r
Courtesy Call in the Flesh
The great Olympian, Hidilyn Diaz also pays a courtesy call to the President in his hometown, Davao. She’s with two other Olympians. President Duterte admits that he’s expecting a muscular lady but in person, Diaz is just a normal lady, he said. The Filipino leader also adds 2M to her 5 million presidential cash incentive. This is on top of the many incentives she already bags amounting to more than 33 million pesos.
Moments in Showbusiness and Politics
Alliances are not forever in politics. Same as in showbusiness. The late President Ferdinand Marcos was the sponsor of Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion’s wedding. Nowadays, Cuneta’s affiliation is that with the other side. Her current husband, Kiko Pangilinan is with the Liberal Party.
Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion Nuptials
Marcos was once a very special person in Sharon Cuneta’s life. Her beautiful wedding with Concepcion is just now a memory in many people’s minds. It must be difficult for her to stay neutral in politics. Perhaps, it would be better for her to remain overseas during elections. So, she made the right choice staying in the US for now.
We Will Never Ever Say Goodbye
Her song during the wedding was very symbolic. She said goodbye to her ex-husband already. Perhaps, to the former president too. This may be the reason why she’s a bit diplomatic to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. Duterte’s aim is to bring back a Marcos to the presidency. This is the time of the season again. Political dramas. We just can’t help it. So, let’s enjoy them as they come.
Bongbong Marcos Starts to Go Around
It is very seldom that the giant mainstream media would feature the activities of Bongbong Marcos. Thanks to reliable ones and social media. Some footages are now available. People in their locality are normally surprised that Marcos is a guest speaker of their local event. This is very evident in Cebu City with acting Vice Mayor Mike Rama and elsewhere. He’s very likely a presidential bet.
Leaving his Options Open
Bongbong Marcos is doing the advice of his late father. This is to leave his options open during elections. He will just decide on the position on what he would run for during the filing of candidacy. This is already in October. The last day of registration for voters is on September 30. Robinson’s Department stores would also serve as satellite registration centers.
The Marcos-Duterte Tandem
President Rodrigo Duterte assures the public during that SONA that he would continue the Build Build Build projects with Bongbong Marcos. He may joke about running for VP but in actuality, he is probably securing the position for his daughter, Mayor Sara. So, watch out for him or both in your locality.
Bongbong Marcos Relies on Filipino Wisdom
Many Filipinos are actually clueless about how witty Bongbong Marcos is if not because of social media. Media blockage is evident in the mainstream to deny Marcos of his chance to be president someday. His interviews during the 2016 elections start to resurface. Filipinos quickly realize that he’s indeed the right leader for the country. That President Rodrigo Roa did not make a mistake to work with him despite not winning the Vice Presidency as per his SONA.
Special Mention at the SONA
The president vehemently said during the SONA that Bongbong Marcos and he will continue public services through relevant infrastructures. The Filipino leader hints at the Build Build Build project that follows the Marcos blueprint. Besides, the funding is also secured through the financial system that the late President Ferdinand Marcos put in place for the Filipino people.
Filipino Sentiments after the SONA
Filipinos have mixed sentiments after the president’s SONA. This is why Bongbong Marcos calls for unity. He begs to hear the people’s voices. That has nothing to do with martial law propaganda at all. Many still rally behind him because of the injustices given to his father. Here’s the son. He’s still around. Give him the support that his father did not have despite being a true patriot, he said.
Bongbong Marcos explains the Paranaque Spillway Plan
In the 1970 series of typhoons, the late President Ferdinand Marcos installs systems to prevent a recurrence of the devastating floods. He aims to avoid urban sprawl and builds a system of sluice gates and spillways. This is to quickly divert floodwaters from the city. Therefore, the country needs Bongbong Marcos to realize the visions of his father for the Filipinos.
Urban planner, Felino Palafox helps design the flood-control projects and policies in the 1970s for President Marcos. It would largely prevent the devastation of a Typhoon Ondoy-like calamity. It struck Manila on Sept. 26, 2009. The ill-effects last for months in the form of disease and mass dislocation of Manila’s unfortunate ones. So, Bongbong Marcos vows to continue and improve such initiatives.
Imelda Marcos’ Batasan Project
On the other hand, Bongbong Marcos also added his mother’s Batasan Project. The aim is to have a center for government services. The location is safe from floods. The site is also at the center of Quezon City. Thus, making it accessible to government employees and the public alike. A visionary leader is therefore what the Philippines need.
Robredo has no decent funds to run as president for 2022
The presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo said in an interview that she has no decent funds to run as president. That’s why she leaves the option open to run for Mayor in Camarines Sur. However, as the leader of the opposition, she conducts an exploratory survey for their party’s presidential bet. Her popularity rating remains low. Very far from the 2016 arch-rival Bongbong Marcos. Therefore, they need a popular one like Manila Mayor Isko Moreno. At least, among showbiz fanatics.
Robredo Looks Bad in Surveys
Many people wonder why Robredo’s rating remains low in surveys. Presidential daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and Marcos are the frontrunners of the presidential surveys. She can’t even beat the younger possible bets for the 2022 Vice Presidential race. Her rating is just 7%. If she really won the vice presidential race against Marcos in 2016, she should be at least in line with Marcos’ popularity right now. So, speculations loom over social media that perhaps they were really massive cheatings in 2016. Therefore, most people vow to correct it in the 2022 elections.
Robredo is No Match with Marcos
Even the opposition stalwarts admit that their electoral machinery is now very weak. Let alone their current reputation. Perhaps, the people are already awake from the propaganda dream they launched against the Marcoses. The death of Noynoy Aquino was also another blow to their party. It also did not help that she continuously annoys the president who vehemently prepares for the return of a Marcos in the presidency.
President Duterte Stops the Marcos Wealth Court Cases
Senator Imee Marcos is grateful to President Rodrigo Duterte for putting a stop to the more than 3 decades of Marcos wealth court cases. The PCGG cannot provide evidence that they are ill-gotten wealth. In fact, the lack of accountability made the debunk agency the robber of some of the country’s inheritance.
Not to Return but to Transfer
President Duterte is furious with the PCGG for just sequestering and selling the personal possessions of the Marcoses. They do not even know if the owners of the Marcos wealth found are really the Marcoses or the Filipino people. Duterte said that the Marcoses are willing to transfer everything to the country. After all, this is what the late President Ferdinand Marcos wants as per his last will and testament.
Only Most Filipinos Do Not Know about the Marcos Wealth
The Marcoses do not or cannot hold Marcos wealth for themselves. They are fully documented by international Financial bodies. Also, they are the wealth for humanity currently earning huge interests from 170 countries. The country needs Bongbong Marcos to make its transfer a priority. Currently, the Philippines enjoy an almost 0 percent interest for loans from the World Bank.
Duterte Follows the Blue Print of Marcos’ Build Build Build
The return of Marcos’ wealth to the country has two meanings. The late President Ferdinand Marcos meant the transfer. Whereas his detractors perceive it as the payback for his alleged loots. However, they can never nail down the Marcoses after more than 30 years. So, President Rodrigo Duterte takes the initiative to make use of the gold reserves as what Marcos intended them to be. Build Build Build project is an example.
Doy Laurel’s Testimony in a Book
From Doy Laurel’s Neither Trumpets Nor Drums book, at pp 104-111, 1986 ed, Second printing: “Let us give national reconciliation and national stability every chance to succeed for the sake of our fragmented people,” Marcos plead. I never received any further reply from Cory, Laurel said. Cory’s refusal to receive Marcos’ message was perhaps her biggest mistake. Had she studied it carefully, she could have settled the Marcos wealth issue eight years ago. Perhaps we could have paid off our foreign debt, Cory’s Vice President added.
Infrastructure Financial Facility
Arguments as to where the funding of the Build Build Build project comes from looms. One thing is for sure, it follows Marcos’ national infrastructure strategy. There’s evidence that it also makes use of the public financial system set up by the late president with the World Bank is evident. Contractors and consultants get their checks from the ADB. The Asian Development Bank works with the World Bank to support third world countries with infrastructure projects for the benefit of the people. Given that the Philippines enjoy an almost zero percent interest, proves that the country’s gold reserves deposited by Marcos are intact.
