This is How the Anti-Marcos Media Suppress Democracy

Democracy is not one way.
One anti-Marcos media website criticizes Toni Gonzaga for giving a platform for Bongbong Marcos’ interview. It said that Gonzaga seems to not know the responsibility she carries especially now that the election is looming. Despite the bashing from the Dilawan faction, the actress remains firm. She said that she is now at the point in her life that she doesn’t have to explain her actions to other people. So, her youtube coverage is now trending online. Clearly, democracy is not one way. Thanks to social media.


Democracy in Journalism

Journalists must get the two sides of the story. Some mainstream media suppress democracy by not airing the side of the Marcoses. Yet, they have the guts of telling Toni Gonzaga what to do. That is a dictatorship in itself. This is why the activities of Bongbong Marcos are never a highlight in the mainstream media. They are limited through the social media channels only and pro-administration radio and TV shows.


The Best and the Worst

Gonzaga knows for sure what democracy is. She does not hail the achievements of the late President Ferdinand Marcos only. The interview allows Bongbong Marcos to explain why his father is the best president the country ever had. While addressing why he was the worst to his critics. As he said, in politics, if you make your enemies angry, you are doing a good job.

The Real Democracy: Why Bongbong Marcos is Duterte’s Choice?

by Filipino Future








Democracy is having the right to choose a capable leader.

The Preservation of Democracy

It is a favorite false cry among the oppositions that democracy in the country dies under the Duterte administration. On the contrary, it’s the president who brings it back. This is through his continuous belief in the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ projects for public service. The will of the majority of Filipinos is often set aside by lawmakers. They are the ones who make laws and vote for the implementation of such developments. The Build Build Build project is indeed proof that there’s no backing out on the Marcos-Duterte alliance in any form.


Build Build Build Project is the Proof

It’s such a bluff that the funds for the Build Build Build project are from China. According to our informant, all expenses are through the ADB. This coincides with the last will and testament of former President Marcos. Duterte can only support Bongbong Marcos’s presidential bid for his projects to continue. This is despite the opposition accusing him of being a killer of democracy.


The Wealth is for Public Service

The plan to improve the lifestyle of Filipinos manifests through Marcos’s wealth in secrecy. International financial facilities are available. These are for the construction of public infrastructures. This is the reason why the Philippines can borrow huge amounts of money from the World Bank, IMF, and ADB. The almost zero interest rates, and ample grace periods. Imee Marcos explains this in one of her interviews. But Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III refuses to accept this. So, he gives the credit to the Dilawan administration’s management. However, the logic just does not match up. The battle between the current and yellow stalwarts is just too visible in this arena. Therefore, Filipinos must vote wisely.

Democracy Threat?: Atty. Gadon Explains why Maria Ressa is a Criminal

democracy
By: Elena Grace Flores

Notable lawyer and senatorial candidate, Larry Gadon denies Maria Ressa’s claim of possible democracy threat by the government. This is after her arrest upon arriving at the Manila airport. According to PNP spokesman Col. Bernard Banac, the police did not violate regulations. Members of the Pasig City police subpoena section presents the arrests warrant to her upon her arrival at the NAIA from the US. Her violation of the Anti-Dummy Law leads to the PNP’s move. Therefore, Atty. Gadon concludes; She is a criminal because of such a crime. Nothing to do with democracy at all contrary to her claim. Just a sign of stupidity, the swearing Attorney added.

[VIDEO]: Atty Larry Gadon Maybanat kay Maria Ressa

Not a Democracy Threat but a Mere Act of Stupidity

Atty. Gadon explains that the Anti-Dummy Law exists to protect the citizens from some foreigners’ manipulation activities. However, Ressa is found to accept investments from foreign entities to fund her media company. Not to mention the confusion of her own nationality. Gadon, however, gives her the benefit of the doubt that she may not be aware of the law. It’s because she is not that deep. She can only speak English fluently but her understanding of the country’s issues is very slim, criticizes Gadon.

Nothing to Do with Journalists

On the other hand, the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo said that the second arrest of Ressa looks like a “warning” for journalists who criticize the administration. Robredo also gets the reputation of being “stupid” in social media. Many of her speeches details that do not tally. Even the simple computation that pertains to the price of rice. She often cries foul over the alleged fake news against her by the supporters of her arch-rival, Bongbong Marcos. She still faces an electoral protest by him that is pending for decision.

Impartial Press Coverage is also Misleading

Ressa’s publication is known to contain news against the administration. It also targets Gov. Imee Marcos recently who runs as Senator for the May 13, 2019 elections. Marcos is one of the main supporters of the President during the Election 2016. In fact, the Filipino leader pledges the Presidency to her brother should he steps down. This can only happen when the younger Marcos wins the recount for the Vice Presidency.

Media Connivance with the Opposition

Robredo’s behavior of protecting Ressa despite her knowledge of the law is a confirmation of their connivance to mislead the public. She is seen giving incorrect data just to cloud the good efforts of President Du30 like the drug war. The questionable VP is often a laughing stock in Facebook.

Gadon’s Public Role

The tough-speaking lawyer obviously attracts followers because of his brutally frank nature. He speaks with conviction using the Filipino language. This captivates the Filipino masses. His “I do not like stupid people” slogan or “Ayaw ko sa bobo” is now quite famous online. Therefore, Ressa should get her act together not to give journalists a bad name. Perhaps, she can help reserve democracy by not being bias after all.

Democracy in Makati: Abby &Jojo Binay Tandem is for Imee Marcos

democracy
By: Elena Grace Flores

Despite the lost footages online, many remember that Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos who runs for Senator joins the ribbon cutting in Makati. It was during the Consumer’s Welfare Week 2018 at the Makati City Hall. She hails the leadership of Mayor Abby Binay and her Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo. Now that former Vice President Jojo Binay announces support to his daughter, things get clearer than ever. The Binay patriarch is supportive of the Marcoses regardless of his human rights lawyering during martial law. This is contrary to his other daughter’s stand. Senator Nancy Binay seeks another term alongside her brother, Junjun who opposes the incumbent Makati mayor. Democracy is evident in the commercial city because people get to vote their bet within the family. z

YouTube video by ABS-CBN News

[VIDEO]: Ex-VP Binay, susuportahan si Abby sa kaniyang reelection bid.

Two Sets of Binays in Makati

Abby Binay and Jojo Binay are obviously in line with the idealism of Bongbong and Imee Marcos. While Nancy Binay is often heard speaking negatively against them. She fights alongside with brother Junjun who runs with Monsour del Rosario as District 1 Representative opposite her father and sister. Aside from sibling rivalry, many can tag this as pro and anti-Marcos bout.

From Jojo to Imee

On the other hand, the campaign ad of Imee Marcos depicts that of Jojo Binay’s “We are like this in Makati.” She recently launches “We are like this in Ilocos Norte! The governor who is now a senatorial candidate talks about the price of rice in her province in this video. Definitely a classic advertisement straight from Jejomar Binay’s portfolio in the 2016 elections!

Democracy in Makati through Election

Abby in an interview confesses that has differences with older sister, Nancy. The mayor has always been independent of her family. It is quite a surprise when her father shows up during her certificate of candidacy filing versus brother Junjun. Prior to this Jojo already said that he would live it to the people’s choice. They have to vote among his two children. It is democracy in action.

Sibling Rivalry

A Win-Win Situation for the Binays

Abby and Junjun may divide the votes in Makati. However, it is a different case when the father runs alongside one. Most residents just love him. Nevertheless, the line up for the race only highlights the siblings as the top two contenders of the mayoral post. Perhaps, this can also determine the Marcoses’ return to power. It’s becauses whoever wins is still a Binay. http://www.new.carelinkwebpr.com/2018/11/gov-imee-marcos-is-a-leader-who-unites-political-parties-as-she-runs-for-senator/

Is Facebook Against Democracy for Pleasing Robredo’s Kind?

democracy
By: Elena Grace Flores

The presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo accused of cheating in the 2016 elections by former Senator Bongbong Marcos is happy about the ban of Facebook on a local company behind the pro-President Rodrigo Du30’s posts. “This is huge, like a gift to the people,” Robredo said in her weekly radio program. However, owners of such accounts who are legitimate supporters of the current administration hate Robredo and her kind more. This goes the same to the Marcos supporters. Is Facebook killing democracy in the country? They asked. It is a now a common occurence that these accounts are either taken out or blocked from posting links or articles. z

YouTube video by PLAKADO Prodaxons

[VIDEO]: IKINATUWA NI VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO ANG UMANO’Y PAG-BAN SA MGA PRO-DUTERTE FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS. ALAMIN ANG BUONG DETALYE.

Hypocrisy Looms

“It’s not for me, but for the whole Philippines that it’s OK to criticize, as long as the basis of criticism is true,” Robredo said. She cites two Facebook pages ran by Twinmark Media Enterprises Inc. – Filipino Channel Online and Trending News Portal – as having “run fake news against opposition figures,” with her as the “number one” target. This is a big puzzle to Filipinos because of this questionable VP’s supporters are also doing the same thing. In fact, she is popular as the ultimate source of Fake News against the Du30 administration. She is also critical about the Marcoses using unfounded lies.

Selective Democracy

Not enough, she said that Facebook should continue such actions, claiming that thousands of fake troll accounts still exist including the ones from her group. She often blasts the government as an entity that does not allow words of decent. That every time she’s ignored, it is already her common expression that democracy dies. Is democracy dead then again?

Not a Big Deal for the Administration

Malacañang earlier shrugs off Facebook’s decision to remove some pro-Duterte pages for violating its policies. There are other platforms that supporters can use to show their appreciation for the administration. Presidential Spokesperson and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo made the statement before and its stand so far does not change.

A Democratic Government

The reaction of President Du30’s speaker is very democratic. “Facebook must have its own rules and regulations. If they are implementing them, that is their own rule,” Panelo said.

Social Media Dominance

It is known that Maria Ressa meets with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to complain about the subject. As a result, the opposition gets the advantage from the platform from then on. This prompted the affected ones to innovate systems where they can express their sentiments democracy-wise. As talented as Filipinos can be, it’s only a matter of time that Facebook’s dominance in the Philippines becomes vulnerable.

Can Former Senator Bongbong Marcos Continue his VP Duties Despite Criticisms?

senator


By: Elena Grace Flores

The ongoing election protest of former Senator Bongbong Marcos against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo is instructive over the results of the vice presidential contest. The tell-tale signs of a concerted effort to ensure that the wishes of then-President Benigno Simeon Aquino III to block Marcos’ return to the executive office are obvious. His party supporters safely carried out their quest during elections. Smartmatic obviously ensures the victory of the pro-Aquino slate. However, despite the mainstream media blackout, the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos remains to thrive because of his clan’s good governance.



YouTube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: I always believed in the importance of the LGUs, having spent most of my public service career in local government. To all the barangays in Quezon City, congratulations on a job well done!


Ex-Pnoy’s Wrath

The most sophisticated cheating strategy happens in the highest levels of the Comelec. This is under the baton no less of the infamous ex-Comelec Chair Andy Bautista. He organizes what turns out to be the most corrupt electoral system and practice in the country’s history.  That starts from the leak of the list which the National Privacy Commission exposed. It turns out that the same was the handiwork of a group of Comelec employees working in tandem with LP manipulators.

Follow-up on Senator Tito Sotto

Calls for Senate President Tito Sotto and Senator Dick Gordon occupy social media platforms. People are making follow-ups on the verdict of the hearings conducted. They owe it to the public to make the 2016 elections mishaps as the basis to safeguard a clean, honest and credible elections in 2019. The joint legislative committee on the automated electoral system has gathered enough information. They can easily craft a good model for the next elections if they want to.


Tweaking Excuses

The tweaking of the “N” in the middle of the national canvass by Venezuela Marlon Garcia already casts doubts on the 2016 elections. Neither Comelec nor Smartmatic cannot come up with credible excuses. The overwhelming public view that it caused Marcos’ over-a-million lead to vanish dramatically remains. Thus, the ongoing protest at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal is very much alive. In fact, it leans towards Marcos’ victory. It is even supported by the IT experts in the country.



Never Again to Smartmatic

The people should never again let Smartmatic and its co-conspirators to make a mockery of our electoral process. Foreigners must not decide the fate of our democracy. They are the reason for all kinds of problems and questionable results using their automated electoral system. The oligarchs benefit greatly from the results they generate.


Where is Democracy?

Smartmatic’s monopoly over Philippine elections was perpetuated by PNoy-appointed officials. Acting Comelec chairman Christian Robert Lim awarded the supply contract for the vote counting machines (VCMs) to be used in the May 2019 midterm elections to Smartmatic. This was three weeks before his scheduled retirement on February 2, 2018. Also, it was without the benefit of any bidding or public notice. Now, it would be too expensive for the government to eliminate that. Therefore, Marcos’ critics have no right to stop Marcos from inspiring the LGUs to promote good governance. The pro-Marcos community is larger than the black media propaganda his detractors launched against him because they are the real voters.

By: Elena Grace Flores

Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, the brain of Martial Law reminds the youth during the occasion of the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ 101st birthday that the country owes him its democracy. Had he not declared military rule as per Enrile’s recommendation as the defense secretary at that time, the Communist Party’s founder Maria Sison could have been the current ruler like in Cuba and North Korea.



Youtube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: It’s heartwarming to see our supporters come together year after year to help celebrate my father’s birthday.




Family Celebration

On the 101st birth anniversary of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, the whole family was present. Bongbong Marcos shared pictures of the gathering on his Instagram. Also, on his vlog, he showcased the achievements of his father.



Bongbong Marcos’ Speech

Quoting Marcos, “101 years ago, one of this country’s greatest leaders was born. Today we celebrate his life as well as his enduring legacy. He aspired greatness for this country and it was born out of a strong belief that Filipinos are capable of achieving it,”. Among the family and the Marcos loyalists present, was Irene, the former First Lady Congresswoman Imelda Marcos, and the grandchildren.

Pursuit of Greatness

Marcos Further says, “As citizens of this great nation, we should not waver in our pursuit of greatness. In doing so, we honor his memory. Happy Birthday, Dad!” The Marcoses always believe in the capabilities and talents of Filipinos.



Black Media Propaganda Version

Not only Marcos loyalists were present on Ferdinand’s 101st birthday. In a stark contrast, Dozens of anti-Marcos folks bore scathing placards against him outside of the cemetery. Despite their limited number, their efforts are magnified through the mainstream media that has misled the public for many years. They capitalize on the abuses under the martial law regime and blamed the alleged atrocities on the deceased leader to discredit the son.




Marcos’ Legacy Lives on Despite Martial Law Critics’ Efforts

Quoting retired Justice Manuel ‘Lolong’ M. Lazaro, “Succeeding administrations have inordinately used laws and the media to destroy or consign Marcos to oblivion, notwithstanding his solid unprecedented achievements for the good of the nation and its people,”. We should all keep in the record not only the wrongs but also the achievements and contributions of Marcos. We must not distort history by obliterating these achievements that should be attributed to him.

[VIDEO]: Attorney updates us on fraud in the Philippines




Deceiving the World

Main-stream media has its biases and it may be shocking to learn new perspectives if you’ve only consumed mainstream news. There is a lot of fraud and lies being perpetuated by people who want to manipulate us.




Atty. Glenn Chong’s Story

One of the people trying to present his truth is Atty. Glenn Chong. He has seen corruption first hand and is challenging it. As such, he is working to expose the fraudulent activities of Smartmatic in the previous elections. The voting machines are reporting results a day before the elections. Furthermore, the company, Smartmatic, is going to various lengths to evade the truth. For instance, they kept poles open for 29 straight hours.

Unresponsive Defendants

With the public hungry for answers, the people involved remain silent. Both Smartmatic and the elections commission have yet to communicate their defense on the allegations they need to answer. There are 38 violations that Smartmatic have committed on the last three elections in the Philippines.









Election Fraud Cases Files

There are already 29 cases filed against Smartmatic and its conspirators since 2010. These cases are filed in different courts and agencies of the National Government. However, A key officer is avoiding criminal prosecution by fleeing to Panama.




Chong’s Plea

Chong is now asking the English-speaking public to do what they can to help. Please share the video so that it can reach people who need to be informed so that they can act accordingly. Remember, this case is not just in the Philippines but in the world. The deception often lies in the pretense of intolerable patience, fake human rights quests, and misleading democratic campaigns – which is the nature of the world’s Liberalism.

A Marcos’ Return to the Presidency is Democracy Restored

democracy





By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Du30 might fulfill his promise of stepping down from office if vice presidential protestant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. wins his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. While trying to downplay President Rodrigo Du30’s remark that he can be a Malacanang successor, former Senator Bongbong Marcos said that he is nonetheless ready for the presidency. He will make good governance a priority of his administration. This is democracy in the making when the truly elected leader triumphs over fraudulent politicians. Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo us still ongoing.






Youtube video by Innovation Philippines

[VIDEO]: Former Senator Bongbong Marcos downplayed President Rodrigo Du30’s comment for him to succeed the president.




Presidential Announcement

Du30 wants a better-qualified person to be able to succeed him. This is according to Harry Roque, the presidential spokesperson. Quoting Roque, “If there’s a better leader or if there’s a qualified leader to take over and he has said that Senator Bongbong Marcos is one of the better-qualified leaders to succeed him, if there are developments and he will win the protest and he becomes vice president, yes, he will make true on his word.”




The economy is the Priority

The improvement of our economy is one of the objectives, as Marcos says. We must also prioritize the interests of the consumers as we improve on the economy. Marcos believes that Du30 is doing good on the economy right now. But still, the President is remarking that if Marcos would only be guaranteed as a successor, he would like to give up the presidency.

Top 3 Not Needed

Being asked about three top priorities, Marcos answers that we only need to think of the “return of good governance.”. This is despite the issues his father faced from his term that is historically known for graft and corruption. It’s been more than 30 years after the late Marcos’ removal from power. Not anyone court can pin him down on the alleged corruption cases. The only evidence that is still in use until the current time is the massive infrastructure project. These are from bridges to hospitals that the masses continue to enjoy.









Democracy Moves On

The PCGG was created by Cory Aquino with the purpose of recovering the wealth allegedly amassed by Marcos through the government. However, Bongbong explains that with the cases filed by the PCGG nothing have prospered. Furthermore, Congress is forwarding a bill that would abolish the PCGG. Bongbong is interpreting this as a hint for the country to move on from these already resolved issues and focus on the issues we are facing now.




The Masses are the Priority

Marcos is stressing that consumer interest will be at the forefront of his administration. He is citing the concern House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has on the issues the economy is facing. Immediately, on her first week as leader of the House of Representatives, she held dialogues with the economic managers of the country. Marcos praises her on that move. Obviously, the changes in the government are now leaning towards his future takeover. The President also did not fail to warn people about this upcoming big change.
