The People Power Revolution, also known as the EDSA Revolution or the February Revolution, was a series of popular demonstrations in the Philippines. They were held mostly in Metro Manila, from February 22–25, 1986. The anti-government crowds in those days were just magnified by the mainstream media. Nowadays, social media shows the real sentiments of the people.
Retaliating to QC Mayor’s Indifference
The BBM-Sara uniteam supporters retaliated to the indifference of QC Mayor Joy Belmonte. She allegedly did not allow the group to assemble in her area of jurisdiction. Instead, she designated a basketball court for their gathering event. This apparently insulted the organizers. Thus bringing the assembly to Caloocan.
BBM is Loving and Forgiving
Despite the attacks of the Dilawans against BBM for more than 30 years, he remains loving and forgiving. He never encourage his supporters to fight back. Unity is his goal for the country’s progress together with his VP running mate, Inday Sara.
Cusi Talks about BBM as Pdp-Laban’s Standard Bearer
Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi is back to square one. This is after his candidate refuses to sign his nomination as their standard bearer. However, the party talks about adopting BBM instead. It is so because Mayor Sara Duterte refuses to run for president under the party.
Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s Possible Substitution
Senator Bong Go already files for his candidacy for Vice President. He does this as a duty to serve President Rodrigo Duterte. Since Mayor Sara has no plans to be their standard bearer, she could substitute Go perhaps in November. This is a possibility that is legal as per the Comelec. Then BBM could maybe become the presidential candidate.
Koko Pimentel’s Fury over the Adoption
Koko Pimentel is furious over the PDP-Laban’s alleged secret plan. He said that it is already against its principle to kick out a member in favor of a newcomer. Let alone support BBM who is the son of an alleged dictator. Nonetheless, Manny Pacquiao’s running as the standard-bearer of PROMDI shows that Cusi’s faction has the stronger power over Pimentel’s.
Bongbong-Sara: No Other Way for the Solid North
BBM’s solid north will not have it the other way around. It’s Bongbong-Sara or nothing at all. Mayor Sara is very capable but she will be a good president 6 years from now. She is also a lot younger than Marcos. Her time will come, they said.
The good news is, Bongbong Marcos and Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio are topnotchers in the surveys for the top positions. BBM’s solid north and Mayor Sara’s solid south can make them the ultimate winners in the 2022 presidential and Vice-presidential elections. Government detractors like Manny Pacquiao and Mayor Isko Moreno are far behind them.
Likely to Win
President Rodrigo Duterte announces that he would run for Vice President. This is if his daughter will not run. He wants to continue what he has started, he said. However, knowing the president, this is just his way of securing his daughter’s place. He could file the VP candidacy first, for Inday Sara’s substitution later on. Earlier, Senator Imee Marcos confirms that her brother is going around for his presidential candidacy. That leaves Mayor Sara in the VP spot for the winning tandem.
Find Another Marcos
President Rodrigo Duterte admits that even if he’s given 20 more years, he can’t do what the late President Ferdinand Marcos has done to the country. He vehemently said that Philippines must find another Marcos. This is why he’s doing everything he could to make Bongbong Marcos or BBM president during the next elections.
Marcos Projects Resumes Under Duterte
The President cannot afford to turn his back on BBM. In fact, this is very visible in the ongoing infrastructures of the country. They follow Marcos’ blueprint. The funding is so huge that the government budget is not sufficient to continue them during the pandemic. However, these projects continue without any difficulties. Contractors can attest that their checks come from the ADB, a World Bank partner where former President Marcos deposited the wealth for humanity.
Remembering the Forgotten Heroes
To equip the farmers and to abolish the oligarchs are Marcos’ advocacies then and now. The providers of the basic needs of the people are the forgotten heroes. They must enjoy the fruits of their labors. BBM is a leader that would take care of his citizens more than anyone else. Therefore, join the president in bringing Marcos back to the top executive office.
Why Bongbong Marcos should run as President in 2022?
Regardless of who’s going to run as president for the BB-Sara tandem, BBM would be the sitting president. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte made sure that the Marcos blueprints for the country’s progress are followed. So, the next administration can only continue them. This is the case in the Build Build Build project plus more.
Mayor Sara as President is also Acceptable
Should Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio runs as president, this is also okay. The 2016 strategy can become a reality. This is for Mayor Sara to resign from the presidency to give way to BBM. The Duterte’s know that it is crucial for Bongbong Marcos to be president. The realization of the will and testament of his father depends on it.
Alliance Breaker vs. Real Loyalists
The real Marcos loyalists surely trust whatever the decision of who’s going to run for such positions may be. BBM would surely be president regardless of the scenario. However, many detractors try to destroy the alliance. But to no avail. The Dutertes’ have a lot to lose if they cannot install Marcos as the country’s leader in 2022.
Bongbong Marcos will not fail his 14 million voters
BBM Sad but Hopeful
Bongbong Marcos is sad that his electoral protest was over even before he can present evidence. This is for the massive fraud in Mindanao. Despite the injustice, he is still hopeful that he can win the coming election in 2022. BBM won’t fail his solid 14 million voters and the new ones. However, Robredo’s camp still continues to issue comments that are obviously for mind-conditioning purposes.
No Fake Voters in Mindanao?
The election protest of former Sulu Governor Abdusakur Tan against House Deputy Speaker Mujiv Hataman who were both running for the ARMM governor was dismissed due to mootness. Nevertheless, the Comelec reports that the signatures of on the voting forms did not correspond to their owners. There’s definitely cheating on this regard, said BBM.
Slim Lead can Make BBM VP
The report of the Comelec is crucial to Marcos’ claim. It is that fraud tainted the elections in the provinces of Lanao del Sur, Basilan, and Maguindanao. He wants the PET to proceed to his third cause of action. This is seeking to annul the elections in these areas. Terrorism, intimidation, harassment of voters, and pre-shading of ballots were some of the issues. Robredo obtained 497,985 votes in these areas. Marcos is certain that if these votes were to be annulled, Robredo’s lead of 263,473 votes could easily be wiped out.
Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos on Monday asked Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen to inhibit from his poll protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.
The Presumptive VP’s Fear
Solicitor General Jose Calida earlier said that the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has the jurisdiction to declare a failure of the election in Mindanao. This triggers the presumptive VP to criticize Calida. Both Bongbong Marcos and Calida now ask Justice Marvic Leonen to inhibit the poll protest. Leni Robredo describes the solicitor general as an avid Marcos loyalist. BBM also notes that the Supreme Court ponente of his case favors his arch-rival. Robredo’s fear is relevant because Marcos can become President instead of her as per the promise of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The President’s Terminator
SolGen Jose Calida’s brilliant legal strategies can make the opposition shiver. Take the case of the former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. His quo warranto petition simply terminates her. People cannot blame Robredo’s social media mockeries. They can blow up to her face very soon. Her term may be over even before the 2022 elections. This could happen by the end of the year or early next year according to a political analyst.
The outgoing US President’s shout of election fraud against Joe Biden seems in line with Marcos’ protest, Robredo said. Therefore, it can also happen that she’ll soon be fired and Marcos will be hired, just like in America. What comes around goes around.

Independence from Coronavirus
True independence is not only freedom from foreign invaders. It also freedom from all obstacles to full development. Coronavirus is not an exception. This is sacrificing our personal interests, and by uniting for the well-being of the people. We will be able to overcome the obstacles we face if we do so, Bongbong Marcos said in his vlog.
The ID System
The ID system is now an essential part of a nation. Countries with an intact identification process are able to do efficient contact tracing. Errors in giving monetary assistance are not common. This is true in Makati with their Makatizen card. The funds are conveniently made available through G-Cash for voters and yellow cardholders. Contrary to scary social media posts, the ID system can indeed prevent chaos in society.
Self-Sufficiency on Supplies
Importation may help to reduce costs but this has little to do with survival. To survive a pandemic means relying on local products for the supplies especially for foods. Truly, independence from the Coronavirus can only mean living with it. Citizens must learn to practice hygiene, social distancing, and self-sufficiency. Kindness is also a must to let these difficult times pass especially to the frontliners.

BBM is Alive and Well
BBM talks to DYRF’s Choy Torralba to prove that he is indeed recovering from coronavirus contrary to gossips. He is really a man with a mission.
He Just Wants to be Well
Marcos just concentrates on keeping himself healthy and boosts his immune system while rumors are going around. It is a favorite topic on social media that he may not be able to run for 2022 due to health reasons. He may be too hard on himself to put a serious restriction on his availability because he simply does not want others to get the infection from him. One maid is enough and luckily, she recovers with him too. They are both negative from
A Man with a Mission
As Choy Torralba puts it, a man with a mission will always survive hindrances that may come his way. After everything, he went through he can only learn how to beat the disease with flying colors and share this wisdom for others to benefit as well. The bottom line for Marcos is, we just have to be kind to others.

Watching out for the Coronavirus Infection Peak
Bill Gates said that mass testing is essential to determine the peak of the coronavirus infections in a country. Since this is not done properly, the quarantine procedure or lockdown can at least prevent medical facilities from overloading and exhausting doctors and nurses.
Pumasok na ang buwan ng Abril at nasa pangatlong linggo na tayo ng Enhanced Community Quarantine. Sinasabi ng ibang eksperto na maaaring mahaba pa ang labang ito sa kadahilanang ‘exponential’ ang pagdami ng bilang ng mga kaso. Kung totoo man ito, ihanda natin ang ating mga sarili at bilang isang bayan – harapin ng buong tapang.
The Importance of Immediate Lockdown
Gates also explains the importance of an immediate lockdown just like what the Philippines is doing. Although it is very tough to contain the coronavirus infection in slums where people are living closely with each other, it helps in reaching the peak quickly. Thus separating the vulnerable ones from the rest of the population for proper medical management. 33% per day of new COVID-19 cases would be hard to manage where there is no shut down.
Infected or Infecting People
The light is not at the end of the tunnel yet for the coronavirus cure. However, when the majority of the people in a country develop immunity of the virus, that marks the end of the pandemic. Most people won’t even know they have it. They can be infected and infecting people without symptoms. The immunity stage is at 60% of the population but with the lockdown, hospitals can gradually treat vulnerable patients.
