Bongbong Marcos divulges the critical ally in Cebu in the person of none other than Vice Mayor Mike Rama. BBM graces Rama’s birthday upon the invite of a mutual friend who is one of the organizers of the event. He also meets Governor Gwen Garcia who is vital in helping now Senator Imee Marcos’ initiatives when she was still in the Congress. Garcia always believes that Marcos was cheated during the VP race in 2016. Sure enough, the electoral protestee can only see the original ballot boxes in Cebu that up to the real standard set by the COMELEC. Unlike the ones they submitted during the election protest recount procedures.
YouTube video by Bongbong Marcos Cebu City is evidence that when public servants set politics aside and encourage entrepreneurial thinking instead, their communities make visible progress.
Governor Gwen Sets Aside Politics
Politicking is not in Governor Gwendolyn Garcia’s vocabulary. She’s always on top of her projects that augment the lives of Cebuanos. The passionate governor spearheads tourism expansions to rural areas like in “Suruy Suruy sa Sugbu” since her previous term. Garcia means business when she implements a total ban on live hogs, and pork from Luzon. This is after the Department of Agriculture (DA) confirms the outbreak of African swine fever. There is a serious concern of a possible ASF entry to the PHP10-billion hog industry in Cebu if there’s no efficient virus control.
Mayor Cortes in Mandaue
Cebu officials like Mayor Cortes of Mandaue are role models as public servants . They hardly discuss politics during gatherings. All they think about are the public projects that can bring good impact to their communities. Marcos applauds their dedication to public service that he witnesses with his very eyes. Plus their entrepreneural spirit.
An Old Friend, Secretary Sitoy
A good friend of BBM’s mother, Imelda Marcos accompanies BBM to tour Cordova and Lapu-lapu. Sitoy accompanies Marcos and Mayor Chan and Vice Mayor Sitoy welcome him.
Spotting the Ballot Boxes
Marcos compares the state of the ballot boxes in Cebu to what he saw during the recount for his electoral protest against the presumptive VP Leni Robredo. The container were not as robust as the ones in Cebu. There were also not wet and tidy. Foreign things were seen in each box that degrade the electoral integrity inthe eyes of the public. That gives him a clear idea on how an untampered ballot boxes look like.

CJ Lucas Bersamin said he intends to delay the vote on the electoral protest. It is a public perception that since he’s an appointee of President Rodrigo Du30, he naturally favors Bongbong Marcos. Therefore, he does not want Marcos’ victory to happen during his term. Nontheless, the majority wins and with the 11-2 voting which is the former Senator’s first round win happens. Meanwhile, Erwin Tulfo explains the success of Marcos and Robredo’s fake news.

‘I DID NOT LIKE TO TAKE PART IN IT’
“I wanted to delay the vote because I did not like to take part in it, because I did not like the public, like the media, speculating that I cooked or orchestrated the result,” he said. “But I always told you: You cannot cook things up here inside the Supreme Court because there are too many people involved.
The Highest Number of Votes Does NOT Determine the Winner
Erwin Tulfo explains that BBM never said that he has more votes than Robredo in her bailiwick. He only asks the tribunal where his votes from the INC are. The justices only have to decide according to the evidences if it’s likely that there’s a massive fraud during the 2016 elections that prevent Marcos from becoming the rightful VP. Out of the 11 magistrates, only two want the dismissal of the protest. Therefore, it continues. The figures of the recount votes won’t matter at this time.
The Queen of Fake News
Robredo’s speculation that she gains 15,000 more votes is a big fake news. Her political allies also ride on with it by organizing a Congress proclaimation. They are fooling themselves out because the recount continues because there’s substantial evidence that the election was fraudulent. Filipinos can only expect from now on that Marcos would soon become VP then, as per the President’s promise, his destiny dictates that he is the new President of the Philippines.
Analysis: Bersamin Hints on the Marcos Take Over
The outgoing Chief Justic’s action only confirms that BBM is indeed the real Vice President. As a result of his unifying act he has to face bad survey results that he can’t do anything with. Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin has this to say: “Don’t be angry.” The Social Weather Station’s survey for the third quarter of 2019 shows that the Supreme Court’s net satisfaction rating went down to +41 from +54 last June. Little do the people know that Bersamin knows that it would be BBM indeed that would emerge as the winner.

The end result of the Oct. 15, 2019 Supreme Court decision over the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos versus Leni Robredo overrides the delay and frustration suffered by the protestant. He’s grateful that despite the complication of the case, the majority of the justices still see the essense of what he’s fighting for. His case continues contrary to the dissenting opinions of justices Benjamin Caguioa and Antonio Carpio. He vows to continue the protest until he gains back the Vice Presidency.

Must Review the Electoral Protest Processes
The 3 years delay only shows that there’s a need to revisit the electoral protest processes that seem to have loopholes. The protestant is not at all protected, Marcos said. Nevertheless, he’s just thankful that the fight is far from over as claimed by his opponent.
Big Reason to be Jolly
Marcos admits that defeating Caguioa’s efforts to dismiss his case is already a big victory in itself. He cannot hide his jolly mood in front of the press representatives. He vows to show all the evidences that his defeat was due to massive fraud orchestrated by the sitting VP or her influencers.
Trust the Justices
The former senator urges the public to trust the wisdom of the justices. When it is true that the whole procedure is not advantageous to the electoral process itself, the voters or even to the whole political system, he is still thankful to see his agenda through. The essence of the recent PET decision is for his protest to continue and that is the most important thing, he added.
Bongbong Marcos Thanks his Supporters
Since it’s a knock-out score versus Caguioa who heads the committee for his case, Marcos is thankful to the sacrifices of his supporters who are on vigil at the Supreme Court grounds whenever such event happens. What happens today overcomes the difficulties in the last 3 years. He stresses that the loyalists are the ones who are giving him the fighting spirit to continue his quest. As for Robredo, his lawyers will take care of her camp who steals his place as Vice President.

True to the logical explaination of Bongbong Marcos’ spokesperson, Atty. Vic Rodriguez earlier, his electoral protest against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo continues. As per the constitution, the Supreme Court can’t dismiss such a case without resolving the pending second course of action regardless of the recount result. The SC en banc, according to Marcos, rejects to adopt a draft decision made by Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa. He recommends a dismissal of Marcos’ election protest. “I am happy that the case continues,” said Marcos. “So the case lives and it continues,” he said. Besides, only justices Carpio and Caguiao have dissenting opinions versus the 8 magistrates who are for Marcos.

Trust in the Judiciary
Marcos can’t deny that frustration sneeks in after being made to wait for too long to take over as Vice President. “Of course, it’s frustrating but what are you going to do?” he said. “You have to trust the wisdom of our justices. Also the case is complicated. It is the first time that any presidential protest has reached this stage,” Marcos said.
Initial Recount Results
The high court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), releases copies of initial recount results. These are from the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. The former senator claims that massive cheating allows Robredo to win. He files such case for it but the camp of Robredo demands the release of its results. The Supreme Court also asks Robredo’s camp to submit an answer to Marcos’ bid. This is to recount votes in yet another area. This time, it’s in the the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
Likely Heir of the President
President Rodrigo Du30 currently laments over his poor health. He declares that he is suffering from a chronic immune-system disorder. The timing does not seem accidental. The Supreme Court, with his appointees, is set to issue a crucial ruling about who should be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
The Annointed Successor
If the 74-year-old President Du30 who is prone to long, unclear public absences gets his way, his vice- president should be Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. He swears during the campaign period that he would turnover the Presidency to Marcos because he’s too old for the problems of the country. The Filipino leader also clarifies his disagreement for Robredo to succeed him.

The electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos may again face another delay due to some divisions in the Supreme court – but one thing is certain. Many advocates in the society come forward to defend the late President Ferdinand Marcos citing his pro-poor policies. Marcos’ demonization can’t stand a chance against active players in the economy. Take the case of CREBA National Chairman Charlie AV Gorayeb who commends Marcos for his presidential decree on socialized housing. He is surely an advocate in making Filipino lives better. This happens during the 888 News forum recently at the Marco Polo Hotel during an ambush interview.

A Home for Every Filipino
The Chamber of real Estate and Builders’ Associations, Inc. or CREBA announces its 28th National Convention to the 888 News Forum attendees. It aim to provide a home for every Filipino. Their target is to award 10 million homes by 2040. The convention is from October 9 to 12 at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Lahug, Cebu City.
CREBA is Pro-Administration
CREBA commits to protect and promote the interests of its members. It harmonizes the conflicts in busines, government and homeless society. The national interest is paramount to them. The association seeks to be an effective and dynamic partner for national development with the real estate industry being a major pump-primer of the national economy. CREBA has become the government’s stongest ally. This is in terms of their national and affordable housing programs.
Financial Support to the Low-Income Earners
Advocate Gorayeb reminds the public that the government mandates a 270 billion per year funds from the social security system, security insurance, PAG-IBIG, and the Marcos era presidential decree that obliges trade banks to provide 25% of a housing unit’s loanable amount.
No Other President is as Good as Marcos
Chairman Gorayeb finally testifies that ex-President Marcos is by far the only president who takes care of the poor through his era’s policies and reforms. There’s no doubt for him that he is indeed the best president the country ever had. His sector would indeed welcome his son, Bongbong Marcos as President Du30’s replacement should the electoral protest results favorably for him.
