Col. Renato Dugan presents an analogy that communism is just like an avid suitor who looks better than a motorcycle-for-hire driver. He would definitely be an easy choice for a lady. However, a media practitioner comments that the problem with the desirable rival is that, he is not keen to marry the woman. Therefore, the subject ends up marrying the other man. Just like communism, he said. If the government just takes care of an area where insurgencies are rampant from time to time, chances are, the vulnerable residents of the area could soon embrace the communists. PLt. Col. Jonathan Pineda, Deputy Chief, Regional Operations Management Division then explains the relentless efforts of the government to topple communism by 2021. Perhaps, just like the Marcos era.

The Government Watches Negros Closely
PLt. Col. Jonathan Pineda, Deputy Chief, Reg. Operations Mgt. Div. explains the government’s efforts in getting rid of communism at the 888 News Forum, Marco Polo Hotel, Cebu. He stresses that in Negros, 3 batallions are staying put in the area to clear up the place from insurgencies. They function as part of the community and conduct regular police visibility for crime prevention.
The PNP Handles Insurgency-Free Territories
Cebu, Siquijor and Bohol are already insurgency-free territories. Siquijor is the first province to gain such recognition without documentation. While Cebu is officially the first certified insurgency-free province. The men in uniform vow to carry on with the government’s aim to eliminate the presence of communists in the country despite the dissenting opinions of the opposition that they only exist as an ideology.
Medical and Dental Missions
Aside from the show of the police force, medical and dental missions are regular activities in the aforementioned areas. These are provided to residents without any cost. Healthy mind and body are crucial in counteracting possible communism affiliations. In fact, their number is not anymore substantial to exist further. They only make noises through the media to make them sound enormous, Pineda said.
Government Support to Eliminate Communism for Good
Former President Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law on the nation from 1972 to 1981 to suppress increasing civil strife and the threat of a communist takeover following a series of bombings in Manila. Later on, it was found that Marcos actually saved the country from communism. President Rodrigo Du30 constantly expresses his desire to turn the presidency to the late Marcos’ son, Bongbong Marcos – whom he believes as his real Vice President. Currently, he is again in turmoil with the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. He swears to take her down as drug czar if she continues to share trade secrets with the enemies of the state. He did not elaborate.
Communist Party of the Philippines founder Joma Sison said that he is always a target of Bongbong Marcos’ trolls. While in exile, he discloses that he does not pay any attention to those alleged fake news. The allegations that he is very wealthy abroad and that Ninoy Aquino and he masterminded the Plaza Miranda grenade bombing in 1971 are obviously false, Sison added.

Sison takes his latest arrest pronouncement in the Netherlands over alleged murder charges back home as another fake news. He attributed it this time to President Duterte’s troll army. He retaliates by calling the President the worst kind of terrorist who even surpasses the alleged dictatorship of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
Target of Bongbong Marcos
The CPP founder complains that he has long been a target of Bongbong Marcos’ troll army. He said that the two bogus news websites which reported his so-called arrest by Dutch operatives for his alleged involvement in the assassination of three communist leaders in the Philippines in 2003 and 2006 are a mere rehash of his arrest by Dutch policemen in 2007.
Social Media Trolls
Sison admits that fake news in social media is effective in the short term. However, it won’t last long. “If there are truth teams in the central and chapters of patriotic and democratic organizations, they can easily answer and defeat this paid Marcos and Duterte trolls in e-warfare,” he said.
Sison went into self-exile in The Netherlands after the 1986 Edsa People Power Revolution. It ousted Bongbong Marcos’ father. The Liberal Party specifically the Aquinos benefitted from the revolt that Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile calls a mutiny. The Aquino patriarch, Ninoy Aquino was the brain in the merger of the CPP-NPA that Du30 now officially declares as terrorist groups. If they are not connected, why does Sison talks similarly to Marcos’ VP rival, Leni Robredo whom he challenges in an election protest?
The Philippines marks the first year since the late President Ferdinand Marcos was buried a hero. This is upon the orders of the President following the law. The country recognizes the LNMB as its heroes’ cemetery and loyalists insist that he is indeed a hero. He has done a lot more than the so-called democracy icon, Cory Aquino and her rebel husband Ninoy.

Minority Senators are Against but not the Majority
In government, minority senators criticize Marcos’ LNMB interment. Supporters of the Marcos family retaliate with calls to “move on.” They inspire Filipinos to focus on the country’s current problems, Then, work with the President towards progress. The majority can only support the Filipino leader. No one can deny he was a soldier, former President, and saved the country from the terrorists and communism.
More Struggles after EDSA
Marcos’ declaration of Martial Law instilled discipline among Filipinos. The golden era is still fresh in the minds of golden-agers. This is despite the media propaganda painting it from white to black. Poverty and alleged human rights violations escalate especially during and after the two consecutive Presidential terms of the Aquinos. However, incompetent acts are publicized only during the term of Du30, a Marcos ally.
The President’s Support
Critics repeatedly point out that the Philippines is once more led by a strongman. They accuse President Du30 of unfounded things – just to discredit Bongbong Marcos who is his preferred Vice President. Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake awaits the date for the recount on his election protest against VP Leni Robredo.
Injustice to Bongbong Marcos
The “simple and private” funeral rites, as requested by the Marcos family, were carried out last year. This aims to give closure to his family and supporters. However, his detractors cannot accept that finally, the truth prevails that the Aquinos are not the heroes but the brilliant Marcos.
