Defense Department ends deal barring state forces in UP campuses

Pinky Webb of CNN Speaks to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque is at wit’s end on the line of questioning by Pinky Webb of CNN. Webb asks Roque to comment on Danilo Arao’s call to the UP faculty and alumni. This is to denounce Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana’s termination of UP’s 1989 accord. Roque reminds Webb that he’s not only a UP alumnus but also the Presidential spokesperson. So, his opinion is not following Arao’s call. He is not bound to denounce such action of the military.


The Opposition’s Accusation

The sitting Vice President Leni Robredo said that such alleged militarization of the UP campus is the government’s way to discourage dissent. It is currently sensationalized by the yellow media. Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against Robredo still awaits the Supreme Court’s decision. Reports of massive fraud to let her win support Marcos’s claim.


Termination of UP’s 1989 Accord

The termination is known by the public on Monday night, January 18. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana officially notifies the university about the abrogation in his letter to UP President Danilo Concepcion on January 15. He cites the in-campus recruitment activities of the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army (CPP-NPA). So, the move basically addresses public interest on the matter.

CNN Debate: Atty. Glenn Chong Manages to have a Dramatic Entrance as Gen. Bato Slams Otso Diretso

By: Elena Grace Flores

It is not clear yet why Atty. Glenn Chong joins only during the last quarter of the CNN Debate. He supports the administration of President Rodrigo Du30. Chong has an alliance with the Marcoses as well after he testifies against Smartmatic and the Comelec. The long delay of his appearance allows General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa to shine as the lone, very vocal defender of President Rodrigo Du30. He displays the personality that appeals greatly to the Filipino masses. Bato also speaks from experiences rather than theories.

[VIDEO]: Atty. Glenn Chong made it only at the last quarter of the CNN debate but Bato took all the heat.

About Atty. Glenn Chong as per CNN

The fierce clean election advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong is controversially known for his electoral reform calls. He criticizes the automated elections system. He wants a hybrid process that combines a manual polling system and a digital one. This is to avoid possible cheating in poll results. Chong’s supporters are not happy on the recent magic 12 survey that excludes him.

The Election 2019 Contenders Present

CNN gathers pro and anti government personalities during the recent senatorial debate. Aside from Ronald dela Rosa, Glenn Chong, Raffy Alunan, and JV Ejercito are in harmony with the Du30 administration. The rest are known to be critical to the current government. They are; Romulo Macalintal, Florin Hilbay, Samira Gutoc, Chel Diokno, Neri Colmenares, Gary Alejano, and Erin Tañada.

Bato’s Lecture

General Bato urges the noisy audience to keep quiet and listen to him. He tells them not to blame President Du30 with regards to China. It is because the problems with the South China Sea happens during the time of former President Benigno Aquino III, Otso Diretso’s party influence. He takes the liberty to invite them to go with him to face the Chinese in the disputed seas. Bato promises to equip volunteers with guns if they are insistent.

The Chinese Influx into the Country

The opposition slate is quick enough to criticize the Du30 administration for allowing many Chinese to allegedly steal the jobs of Filipinos. Pro-administration, Alunan wishes for Filipinos to consider being proficient in the Chinese language also to fulfill the demands of Chinese investors. Ejercito agrees to regulate illegal entries of these foreigners into the country.

Chong’s Choice is the Philippines

It is heartfelt for Chong to say that he does not have a choice when it comes to his family name. However, he chooses to be Filipino because he feels for the people. Intermarriages between Filipinos and Chinese nationals are already common since time immemorial. Filipino-Chinese people are still Filipinos.

Marcos’ Lawyer, Atty. Vic Rodriguez Blasts Robredo’s Thick Face for Spreading Supreme Court Fake News

Supreme Court




By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Vic Rodriguez, the lawyer, and spokesperson of Bongbong Marcos directly blasts the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo on her Supreme Court fake news. This is on the alleged 25% threshold approval for the election recount. Atty. Rodriguez clarifies that the PET resolution dictates that it has no basis to change its 50% ruling. He added that he cannot figure out where the troubled VP gets the thick face to announce such fakes news in a press conference that even international media like CNN falls victim to.

The Supreme Court Clarification

Atty. Rodriguez added that they would welcome any move by the PET, motu proprio (on its own), to clarify its earlier resolution on the controversy over its recent resolution on the threshold controversy. “As far as we are concerned, it is the body of the resolution in its entirety, which should be controlling and not one mere phrase,” Rodriguez said, noting that the PET had clearly set out why it adopted the 50-percent shading threshold after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) only belatedly informed the PET that as a policy they counted votes with as at least 25-percent shading.

Conflicting News

In a 21-page decision dated Sept. 18, the PET, through Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa, partially granted the motion filed by the camp of Vice President Leni Robredo asking to set aside its earlier decision upholding the 50-percent threshold over the 25-percent threshold, which she said was used by the Comelec during the 2016 elections. The matter involved conflicting views on how much partial shading of a circle beside a candidate’s name in the ballot is sufficient to be counted as a vote for the said candidate in the election protest for the vice presidential race in the last elections.




Robredo’s Thick Face

The lawyer also criticized the preemptive acts of opposing counsels in claiming that the resolution was in their favor. This time, she cannot deny spreading fake news because her media allies quickly spread the information given like wildfire. Even other international media like CNN picked the fake news also. Rodriguez already corrected some of them for the wrong headline. It should be; PET upholds Marcos’ Plea and not the other way around.


No to the Use of Ballot Images

The Marcos Camp, however, presses their opposition to the Presidential Electoral Tribunal’s (PET) use of decrypted ballot images. Plus the tribunal’s insistence on reverting to electronically-generated election returns. This pertains to the ongoing election protest over the alleged massive cheating in the 2016 vice presidential polls in Camarines.




Compromised Election Results

Rodriguez explains that the decrypted ballot images represent a significant number of ballots that have already been damaged and are clearly compromised and cannot reflect the true outcome of the polls. Rodriguez said the returns should not be used by the Supreme Court because “it is a product of the automated election system the product of which is precisely what we are questioning.”

Bongbong Marcos’ Son Silenced Critics on Father’s Degree with Own Credential

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos’ own academic credentials were criticized. He then clarified the issue by explaining that he got a special diploma from Oxford University in England. He did not finish his master’s degree at the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania because he was elected Vice Governor of Ilocos Norte. Recently, his son, Sandro finished his graduate studies at the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science. Critics can only frown on his new credential.

Sandro Marcos’ Educational Credential

Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro” Marcos, 23 said that he earned his Master’s Degree in Development Studies. The young Marcos is grateful his parents, Bongbong and Lisa Marcos. The couple is with him in the pictures posted in social media.




Proud Parents

The London School of Economics one of the top universities in the world. It ranked second in the annual QS World University Rankings in Social Sciences and Management 2018. Just after Harvard University. Bongbong Marcos is so proud that he posted about his son’s graduation on his Instagram account. That immediately went viral on Facebook.




Sandro’s Potential in Politics

The younger Marcos campaigned for his father in his vice presidential bid in 2016. He is known as the crush of the town via social media for his good looks and intelligent views on issues. He can also stand in front of the public on behalf of his father. In many instances, he was a crowd drawer.









His Father’s Son

Despite the tremendous noise on social media that pertains to Sandro’s new educational credential, the mainstream media was still too slow to pick up the news. Of all the prominent online publications, he was finally featured on CNN Philippines. He’ll definitely shed off the past black media propaganda that ruined the presidency of his late grandfather. Just like his father who stormed them all with own achievements in public service and legislation.
