[VIDEO]: The late President Cory Aquino’s selling of public services.
The Economy Suffers after EDSA
The possibility of Bongbong Marcos’s takeover is near. His chance of winning the presidency is very high. The supremacy of the yellow faction seems to end already. The president himself has a lot to do with Marcos’s return to the executive office. His high approval rating explains why the majority of netizens are defending Marcos who is likely his successor via social media. Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile also serves as the living proof of the Aquinoses’ incompetence. Thus divulging what they did with the country’s economy.
A Marcos Traitor Turned Ally
Enrile was a so-called Marcos traitor. But he was actually his protector. This is according to his previous confession to Bongbong Marcos. Many Filipinos are yet to be convinced that he has never changed his heart to former President Marcos. He said that he just didn’t know who the enemies were. The late Cory Aquino also appointed him as one of her cabinet members. But it was hell for him. Saying that Aquino did not know anything about running a government. So, learning from his experience would give the BBM the edge. Know your enemies, he added. This is for Marcos to watch out for on top of strengthening the economy.
Privatization of Public Services Affects the Economy
The video explains the different kinds of government-owned businesses that ex-President Cory Aquino sold to private companies. Public utilities like water and electricity should remain under the control of the government. Not to mention the agency that controls the prices of fuel like gasoline and gas. However, because of Ferdinand Marcos’s initiative with the gold reserves, the Philippine economy can only shake during the pandemic. Bankruptcy is far from happening. People in the know should be able to vote wisely this coming 2022 election.
Implementing what Works for the Economy
Bongbong Marcos reviews the works and visions of his father. This is during his 104th birthday recently. He highlights the major components that can progress the economy. Agriculture and infrastructure are now way too familiar. Healthcare and education are in the front seat due to the pandemic. Industrialization is worth exploring.
Direct Food System
The Kadiwa direct food distribution system was a hit during the late president Ferdinand Marcos’ time. A nation can only flourish if its citizens are nourished. Importing foodstuff must be minimized. Instead, food production through the agricultural sector must be a priority. Together with advanced researches to improve harvests. Coupled with the technology-enhanced education system.
To explore natural energy is always on the table during the Marcos regime. In fact, the windmills only exist in the Marcos bailiwick, Ilocos Norte. Since everything is now dependent on the internet, its infrastructure must also improve together with the needs, Bongbong Marcos said. Solar power is also something that needs to grow in number. Plus the development of environmentally-friendly fuel for healthier Philipines.
BBM: Total Lockdown is Disastrous to the Economy
BBM or Bongbong Marcos said that granular lockdown is essential to certain LGUs with the rising number of Covid-19 infections only. Total lockdown brings financial worries to the people. Since the government cannot give financial assistance anymore, fully vaccinated individuals must be free to work. This can re-start the economy during the pandemic. Also, people’s financial worries can ease up. Not having food on the table for their families is very depressing.
The Economy is Crucial for Families
The reason why the government is speeding up the vaccination process is for the people to move freely. Work must be the next priority after safety, Marcos suggested. Individuals who cannot adapt to the digital profession must continue to do or seek for their expertise outside. Therefore, it’s time to relax restrictions to fully vaccinated Filipinos.
Retain Quality Healthcare
The government’s COVID-19 hazard pay covers public health workers. Whereas, the special risk allowance is for health workers in public and private facilities. They have families too. On top of the risks. It’s the first time in history that medical workers rally on this. Since it’s already done, the DOH must pay at once, Marcos suggested. So, there should not be more delays to retain quality healthcare.
The US connived with the anti-Marcos to stop the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ independent trade plan.
Take note of the public services. Marcos made it a point that the electricity and water are owned by the government. The infrastructure projects also cost a lot more than the nation’s budget. The construction of roads, bridges, and highways was massive nationwide. World-class hospitals and reputable universities are still in use up to this date. The economy was thriving. Where did the funds come from?
World Bank Loans
Borrowings from the World Bank were criticized by his detractors. But why up to the present, the Philippines can still borrow with almost zero interest rate? They may be some truths about Marcos’ capital at the World Bank. In fact the 10 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines from Pfizer are funded by the World Bank and ADB. Just like the Build Build Build project of President Rodrigo Duterte with Marcos’ blue print.
The US’ Hand to Topple Marcos
The infamous EDSA Revolution that turned out to be a hoax according to former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile was proof of the US’ connivance with the anti-Marcos. Enrile said that it was a mere mutiny. Marcos asked for it to make the people safe. But the late President Corazon Aquino’s party benefitted from it. Do you know that it was the Americans who masterminded the exile of Marcos’ family in Hawaii? If the Philippines really has the gold, it’s likely to control the world.
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.
[VIDEO]: Former Senator Bongbong Marcos downplayed President Rodrigo Du30’s comment for him to succeed the president.
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.
“It’s the economy, stupid” is a slight variation of the phrase “The economy, stupid”, which James Carville had coined as a campaign strategist of Bill Clinton‘s successful 1992 presidential campaign against sitting president George H. W. Bush. Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s version was telling Pnoy; It’s the economy, student. Meanwhile, Bongbong Marcos talks about the track record of now Speaker Arroyo when it comes to the infrastructure of the economy when she was President. He said that such leadership change including Senator Tito’s Sotto’s takeover as the Senate President is crucial for the progress of the country.
[VIDEO]: It turns out Clinton was right when he said, “It’s the economy, stupid.”
The First Female Speaker of the House
The anti-Arroyo faction must be outraged but former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo wins the house speakership post. She is the first female ever to be Speaker of the Philippines’ House of Representatives. The courageous woman is also the only former Philippine President to become speaker. While it is the first time in over a decade that in the middle of a President’s term the Speaker is replaced, Marcos is confident with Arroyo. There is no leader who has a greater sense of the economy as the former President, he said.
A Long Planned Transfer of Power
Without hesitation, Pimentel had formally nominated Sotto as his successor. Sotto now serves as the second Senate president of the 17th Congress. The transfer of power had long been planned, Pimentel says as he resigned from the position. It is done so peacefully and willingly.
The Impact of AI on the Economy
With the development of artificial intelligence comes the elimination of some jobs. But surely with this technology, we can witness the evolution of most professional landscapes. As research predicts, 1.8 million jobs will be gone by 2020, but 2.3 million jobs would be created. While the AI technology will lead to the extinction of repetitive jobs, we can see it morph and enhance creative jobs. These things should be considered while looking at the economy, Marcos says.
The Depreciation of Peso
The peso is weakening. With weak Philippine trade numbers as well as expectations of an interest rate increase in the US, the peso remains weak against the dollar. This according to Jonathan Ravelas, Chief Market Strategist of BDO Unibank Inc. This will certainly work to the benefit of exporters and dollar earners, as well as the families of OFWs, Cid Terosa, Dean of the University of Asia and the Pacific School of Economics said. Arroyo still worries however of its future implications, Marcos says. The depreciation of the Peso Value on the flip side may spur inflation. That can negatively impact the purchasing power of the common Filipino.
The electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against VP Leni Robredo may still be uncertain. But now not only the President is Marcos-friendly. The heads of the Congress and the Senate are now on the same boat. The current line of succession to the office of the President of the Philippines is specified by the 1987 Constitution. During the Marcos era, the line of succession would be amended to include a newly created cabinet or ministerial offices. The line of presidential succession follows the order of Vice President, President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. In case of death, permanent disability, or inability of these officials, Congress shall, by law, provide for the manner of selection of the person who is to act as President until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
Gov. Imee Marcos and Mayor Cristina Romualdez seem to be in tune with the palace when it comes to the real status of the country’s economy. The questionable VP earlier said that the President should prioritize the declining economy first before criticizing her incompetence. Palace spokesperson Harry Roque said that in fact, the Philippines is now the darling economy in Asia. Marcos and Romualdez added that the world’s gasoline crisis is the one to blame for the price hike of commodities.
[VIDEO]: The world market’s gasoline crisis is the culprit for the price hike of commodities according to Marcos and Romualdez.
Roque Corrects the Out of Tune VP
Roque notes that the increase in the price of oil in the world market is the reason for the increasing prices of commodities. “All economies in the world will agree that we are a darling economy,” the spokesperson claimed in a press briefing. He added: “Madam vice president, there is no problem with the economy.” In the first quarter of 2018, the Philippines remained one of the best performing economies in the region after it grew 6.8 percent. The expansion pace missed the government’s expectations due to “spoiler” inflation.
The Tax Reform is Up to the Congress
Detractors of the government blame the rising prices on the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law. It allegedly lowers the income tax rate but also imposes higher taxes on fuel and “sin” products. The peso also continues to be weak against the dollar but Du30’s economic managers and Roque said this was not a cause for concern. Romualdez said to Marcos that the President is leaving this matter to the Congress since he cannot decide on this without a specific law as per the constitution.
No Truth on the Borrowing Spree
The President’s announcements regarding the investments of China or any countries never pertains to borrowing money from them. So far, we can only verify the Asian Development Bank’s investment on the major MRT infrastructure for the “Build Build Build” project. China so far got only the bid for the supplies of the construction like cement. Japan is also the contracting consortium. The Marcoses knew that borrowing from other countries is not an option because we have enough reserves for such investments. Only the destabilizers would cast a shadow on this to malign the Du30 administration.
The Marcos Wealth Stabilizes the Economy
Robredo also said that changing the constitution is not the solution to high prices and poverty. However, she does not have a good solution also. That made her incompetent. Instead of contributing to the country’s progress, she brings chaos into it for her own interests. The VP is so out of tune with the world’s situation. The country’s economy is far better than Japan as far as stability is concerned. The Marcos wealth for humanity is not a myth after all. We can feel it and the President puts it into the people’s advantage through the aggressive infrastructure project following the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ will.
“The only way to elevate ourselves is to love what we do and to help others” is Bongbong Marcos’ business philosophy. It is so true for legitimate entrepreneurs who are into nation-building. They never cease to show their support to the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The former leader recognizes early on the contribution of legitimate Filipino-Chinese economic players. Today, this thriving community locally is already on its 40th Anniversary. Recently, the Communist Party of China seeks to learn the perspectives of the younger Marcos on issues about the economy.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos comments that he feels no different to the frequency of invitations he receives now as compared to when he was a senator or a governor.
Du30’s Introduction of Marcos as VP
In October 2016, President Rodrigo Du30 introduces former Senator Bongbong Marcos to the Filipino community in Beijing, China as the next vice president. That, of course, if he wins his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.
The Preferred VP
Marcos claims that massive and “blatant” fraud took place during the 2016 elections. It paves the way for the previous administration’s candidate to win the vice-presidential race. The son and namesake of the late President Marcos lost to Robredo by only around 200,000 votes. Experts say that this can easily be proven during the March 19, 2018, recount. Du30 openly expresses his support to Marcos and his family.
Marcos is happy that his Nacionalista Party once again had dinner with their “friends” from the Communist Party of China (CPC) last February 27. “Last night’s fellowship dinner hosted by the Nationalista Party for the visiting CPC delegation headed by H.E. Guo Yezhou, Vice Minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, was both enjoyable and fruitful, as it further strengthened the friendship between our two countries,” he said.
First to Recognize
The CPC is interested to learn about his perspectives on issues relating to both countries. Marcos’ mother, Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos, and his sister, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, were also present at the dinner. The Chinese people who are abreast of the changing world is again first to detect the big change that is about to happen in the Philippines. No wonder they have become the drivers of the global economy. After all, the ones that excel in the digital age are the ones who are adaptable to change.
Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza recounts his rare conversation with the former first lady Imelda Marcos about an infamous treasure. Atienza said that Rep. Marcos once told him about 7,000 tons of gold that can be used for the economy. If these are part of the wealth for humanity that her late husband deposited at the World Bank she, cannot decide on her own on what to do with them.
[VIDEO]: Atienza: Imelda Marcos wanted to return 7,000 tons of gold to PH
When they were both sponsors in a wedding sometime in the 2000s when he was mayor, Atienza said Marcos told him about the 7,000 tons of gold deposited in different parts of the world so that the country could pay off its foreign debt. This coincides with the World Bank gold reserves of her late husband. They were shipped around the world as sanctioned by the financial entity.
Liberate the Nation from Debts
Atienza quoted Marcos as saying: “I’ll liberate the nation from foreign debt. I heard directly from Congresswoman Imelda Marcos when I was a mayor. She said that she wants to hand over the gold to the government here so that the country will be free from its debts,” Atienza said.
Interference of a Super Power
I told her, ‘why don’t you do it?’ She said a superpower was interfering,” Atienza added. He did not name the superpower allegedly blocking the release of the Marcos gold. But America has been known to carry such title. Can this be the reason why the Liberal Party’s supporters are mainly from the US?
Protecting the Economy
This incident was disclosed after the President said that a Marcos spokesperson explains the reason that the wealth appeared to be hidden because ex-President Marcos was “protecting the economy.” It is remembered that Marcos negotiated with then President Cory Aquino to let him return from exile to explain about the wealth but she denied him this opportunity. That’s why they are called hidden wealth by his detractors.
Bongbong Marcos can only say to Leni Robredo; good luck to both. One can never undermine the act of kindness even during bad times. This is what makes the world go round. Everyone must be both the giver and the receiver to balance a rich economy. See how Marcos manages his resources in different situations.

Recount in Pilot Areas
The recount on the 3 pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is necessary to determine if a further recount is needed. This is vital because failure to show discrepancy as per his electoral protest against Leni Robredo can cause the dismissal of the case. He is confident that the slim margin can easily be surpassed once it’s done. It may not affect other candidates because there are indications that the omitted votes were directed to him.
Resources Management on Pool of Money
It is a normal thing in the society of the rich that they pool in money for a cause. Marcos’ protest is considered by his friends as such. Naturally, whatever your status may be, you are likely to have the same kind of friends. Since he is generous and a dedicated public servant, it is not surprising that he also has a like-minded group of supporters.
Ilocos 6 Brotherly Advice
Marcos said his advice to sister Imee is brotherly. He is not a lawyer that can be guilty of persuading his client to avoid the hearing ordered on July 25. Besides, she can really be in danger if nothing can convince the House Committee that she has done the right thing for the welfare of her constituents.
He also shared some intelligence report that some insurgents found in Marawi are foreigners. This is an indication that the siege there is internationally perpetrated. Since world wide terrorism is a highlight now with ISIS’ initiatives, Marcos discloses that the President concentrates on this matter for the time being. The country’s economy might be affected by the ongoing Mindanao Martial law – but it is better to look at it from a bigger perspective. Filipinos would not want the country to be another hub of ISIS. Just keep on buying and selling and the resources will balance out.
