welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

After the Supreme Court, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET ordered Bongbong Marcos and Vice President Leni to pay a total of P81.46 million for the Marcos election protest, the latter said that he will protest not to say whereas Leni Robredo’s camp said that they will issue a statement after the holidays.

Supreme Court Rule

The tribunal’s rules mandated that the cash for the protest and counter-protest is P500 for each precinct involved to bring the contested ballot boxes and election documents for the recount. Marcos requested for a manual recount of 36,365 clustered precincts while he requested for the annulment of the results of 2,756 clustered precincts. The total 38,221 clustered precincts are composed of 132,446 precincts.

SC’s Calculation

In a resolution, the tribunal required Marcos to deposit a total of P66,223,000 for the 132,446 precincts. Meanwhile, Robredo was ordered to pay P15,639,000 for the 31,278 precincts included in her counter-protest. Both camps are required to pay the cash deposit in two installments on or before Good Friday, April 14 and July 14.

Lacson’s Move

Senator Panfilo Lacson questioned a Supreme Court’s order asking the Vice Presidential rivals in the Marcos election protest to pay millions of pesos for the case to continue with the case. He calls it a system flaw that needs to be corrected.

Further Delay on Marcos Electoral Protest

Lacson explained that the winner of an election who is already harassed with a poll protest or cheated must not be made to pay an enormous amount of money to be proclaimed the winner. This is a flaw in Tthe system, Lacson thinks. “Therefore, I will study and propose legislation to correct that flawed system on electoral protests,” he said. So, further delay in the Marcos electoral protest can certainly be expected.

Right after Vivian Velez’ Resign Leni Movement, COMELEC Got Busy with Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

A week after protesters led by actress, Vivian Velez gathered in front of Leni Robredo’s head office in Quezon City that demand for her impeachment or resignation, it looks like the COMELEC got busy. For this week alone, Bongbong Marcos received no less than four (4) Notices from the COMELEC with regards to the electoral protest filed against Robredo.

[VIDEO]: Giit ng actress na si Vivian Velez, sinisira ni Leni Robredo ang imahe ng bansa. Dpaty syang iimpeach kahit di sya kinikilalang tunay na Bise Presidente.

Small but Dedicated Group

Four people showed handwritten “Leni Resign”, “Leni Resign ASAP Pls” and “Oust Leni Now” signs, while another protester held a larger “Impeach Leni Resign” tarpaulin. The protesters doubled in number within less than an hour. Actress Vivian Velez arrived with four other people. The number of people who participated in the rally is rounded to 10 based on photographs but each person was a representative of their own pro-Marcos group.

Not Acceptable as VP but must be Impeached

Vivian Velez explains that even if their groups do not acknowledge Leni Robredo as Vice president, she has to be impeached because she has destroyed the image of the country. Velez refers to the video sent by Robredo to a side event of a UN conference saying wrong things about the president’s drug war.

Four Notices Received by Bongbong Marcos

1. Notice regarding the decryption of SD cards and other election data in San Antonio, Northern Samar;

2. Notice with respect to the election closure activities conducted at the COMELEC warehouse in Sta. Rosa, Laguna:

1) Release of VCM external batteries on 21 March 2017;
2) Stripping of unused CCS kits on 21 March 2017;
3) Stripping of used CCS kits on 27 March 2017;
4) Back-up of VCM SD cards and used CCS kits on 27 March 2017.

3. Notice informing the Supreme Court that all requests for election-related data in Siruma, Camarines Sur be addressed to the RTC concerned since the latter now has possession of the requested files.

4. Endorsement letter addressed to the PET regarding the inventory, retrieval, and delivery of election-related data in Toledo City, Cebu.


Marcos Camp’s Prompt Reply

On 23 March 2017, Bongbong Marcos sent COMELEC the names of his representatives for the election closure activities to be conducted on 21 March and 27 March 2017. After 38 weeks, they are still waiting for the PET on the following:
• to issue a Retrieval Order [per undertaking # 7 of 21] and
• to issue a Notice of Preliminary Conference [per undertaking # 8 of 21].

Bongbong Marcos Camp: Robredo Files an MR Discretely on Feb 27 to Delay Electoral Protest

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

No media ever reported that on February 27, 2017, the camp of Vice President Leni Robredo files a motion for reconsideration to reverse its latest ruling on her appeal to dismiss the election protest filed against her by Bongbong Marcos. Marcos camp is confident that the Preliminary Conference pushes through. Robredo’s move, however, is successful to delay the said protest.

Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Bigo si Vice President Leni Robredo na pigilan ang Supreme Court bilang Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) na dinggin ang election protest ni dating Senador Bongbong Marcos.

Move to Reverse Feb 24 Decision

In its January 24, 2017 decision, the SC said: “Marcos’ protest that questions the results in various provinces consisting of 662 municipalities and their component cities and the 2,537 clustered from 5 highly urbanised cities, contains narration of ultimate facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in stated areas and clustered precincts.” Robredo’s camp, in the appeal filed on February 27 argues that the said irregularities are not specified for all the areas included in Bongbong Marcos’ election protest, contrary to the SC ruling.

Depriving Marcos of his Day in Court

Marcos’ camp accuses the Vice President’s team of resorting to delaying tactics. The supposed issue can be resolved easily with more evidence to be presented as the case proceeds. They deprive Marcos of his day in court which should not be the case if they are sure that their political party did not cheat.

Innocent People Always Want their Case to be Over

Human beings normally hate long proceedings in court cases if they know by heart that they are innocent of the accusations made. Why is Vice President Leni Robredo exert efforts in such delay and not tell the public about it? The Robredo camp especially the Vice President and her lawyer, Romulo Macalintal are often very noisy about minor gossips. Why do they fail to announce that they already submit a motion for reconsideration on Feb 27, just a few days after the SC ruling?

Clear Deception

It is now very obvious that the Vice President is indeed guilty of the accusations in the electoral protest filed against her. This is why she delays the proceeding. She even attempts to deceive the public that it is not her who is causing the delay. The people can only put the blame on the. SC. So she is also guilty in trying to tarnish the Supreme Court’s reputation.

Bongbong Marcos Lawyer: Robredo Must Not Delay Process for Truth if there’s No Fraud Committed


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos lawyer Vic Rodriguez reminds Leni Robredo’s camp that their two motion for reconsiderations in the past before he files the Prelimininary Conference request, show that they are not consistent in their claim that there is no fraud in their part during the elections because they keep on delaying it with such moves.

Youtube video by; TRENDING NGAYUN
[VIDEO]: Marcos Camp lawyer, Vic Rodriguez explains the importance of filing the Preliminary Conference in Marcos’ electoral protest.

Attempts to Scrap Electoral Protest

The legal team of Vice President Leni Robredo is continue to seek ways to scrap the election protest against her because they are “afraid of the truth,” Atty. Vic Rodriguez said. The Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, affirms that the election protest of Marcos is sufficient in form and substance.  Robredo’s camp plans to set to file another motion for reconsideration in a bid to reverse the resolution but up to now fails to do so.

Beyond Dispute Ruling

Bongbong Marcos’ spokesperson, slams the intended motion, saying, “Despite the Tribunal’s ruling that this issue was already ‘beyond dispute’, Robredo’s legal team is still looking for ways to delay the proceedings.” Their actuations on the protest have been consistent: they are afraid of the truth, he said.  It reveals how much they tarnish and debase the true will of the Filipino people in the last Vice-Presidential race. The Robredo camp cheats their way to the vice-presidency and wants to repeat that by depriving Marcos of his day in court.

Delay Means Longer Term for Robredo

Ideally, a delayed electoral protest benefits Robredo because he retains the position in a longer time. It might label her as a cheater but she does not seem to care. She continues to discredit Bongbong Marcos by discrediting not only him but also his family. Not satisfied, she also criticizes the president for his friendship with him.

Marcos’ Win Despite Delay

It may take a long while before Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo reaches a favorable ruling on the truth. But Marcos’ win can show to the people how the Liberal Party’s communism idealism in everything that they do. They are not really for democracy as what they always say. This also proves that no Marcos or ally is a tyrant dictator but the ones who go against them using the media manipulates the public to their advantage.

PET Found the Protest of Bongbong Marcos to be Sufficient in Form and Substance

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Contrary to VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal’s press release that Marcos’ electoral protest is dismissible because he can’t make Robredo responsible for his “general” allegations of electoral frauds and irregularities, PET rules that the protest contains narrations of ultimate facts on such anomalies in the questionable clustered precincts. Marcos can now move on to prove his allegations in due time,” the PET discloses.

Deliberations on the Proofs Submitted

Since the Tribunal finds the protest sufficient in form and substance, the process can now move to the emphasis of the veracity of the Marcos’ allegations. Marcos must prove the accusations with concrete evidence. The protest gets theTribunal’s go signal to proceed and give the protestant the opportunity to prove his case according to the 2010 PET Rules.”

Questions on Certificates of Canvass

The tribunal also dismisses Robredo’s claim that Marcos improperly raises the authenticity and due execution of certificates of canvass (COCs). They are the basis for vote tallies for the vice presidential post. Robredo must contest the issue in a pre-proclamation case filed before Congress acting as the National Board of Canvassers or NBOC.

Disqualification of the Vice President

The Section 4, Article VII of the 1987 Constitution relative to Rule 13 of the 2010 PET Rules provides that the Tribunal shall be the sole judge of all elections contests relating to the election, returns, and disqualifications of the President or Vice President of the Philippines. The phrase ‘election, returns and qualifications’ refers to all matters affecting the validity of the contestee’s title. That includes questions in the validity, authenticity, and correctness of the COCs,” the tribunal explains.

Bongbong Marcos Pleased with the Development

Although the tribunal denies Marcos’ bid to set aside Robredo’s response to the poll protest due to its late response. PET records showed Robredo received the summons and election protest on August 3, 2016, and not on August 2 as stated by the vice president in her response to the protest. Robredo has until August 13, 2016 to file her answer; but since August 13, 2016 is a Saturday, the filing of verified answer and counter-protest on August 15, 2016 is timely. Marcos’ legal spokesman Victor Rodriguez announces that despite of that, Bongbong Marcos is pleased with the decision.

Bongbong Marcos Urges SC to Take Action on Comelec’s Disregarding SD Cards Decryption


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The process of decrypting SD cards have been done so many times in the past and so now we’re wondering why Comelec can’t seem to do it now, Rodriguez said on behalf of the Marcos camp.

Speculations Arise

The Comelec’s failure to decrypt the unused SD cards with data results to Marcos camp’s insisting that one possible reason is that the SD cards are tampered with. Another theory is the existence of a defective tool to decrypt data or the existence software that is not authorized.

Unauthorized Software Found

Comelec cannot blame the Marcos camp because their IT representatives find a program in the SD cards in question that is compatible only with Windows operating system.Linux is the system Smartmatic uses to format the SD cards.

No Explanation can Draw Unfavorable Conclusions

The Marcos camp claims that the presence of data in SD cards of supposedly unused VCMs proves the existence of electoral fraud. Who can dispute that if no explanations are given? In the first place, it’s against the law.

Robredo Camp’s Verbal Defenses are No Good

Macalintals, bionic, dreaming and exhilarating remarks do not do them any good. They should also urge the Comelec to follow the election protocol or else they cannot deny that they connive with each other.

Common Sense on Marcos Electoral Protest: Unused SD Cards with Data is Obviously Corrupt

Marcos electoral protest

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The decryption of 26 SD cards with data at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) office in Intramuros, Manila, lawyer Victor Rodriguez, spokesman of Marcos, said the fact that the SD cards are corrupted at the very beginning, it is enough to prove that there’s fraud during the last May 2016 elections.

Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: THE camp of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday asserted that data found in many of the secure digital (SD) cards retrieved from supposedly unused vote-counting machines (VCMs) strengthened their election protest.

Denial and Lies

Robredo’s camp can deny or lie about it but the discovery of the data in unused SD cards strengthens the position of Bongbong Marcos saying that massive fraud happens in the last elections. SD cards from unused VCM should be empty. That certainly bolsters Marcos’ position.

Stripping Pressure

Marcos lawyers oppose the stripping of the unused VCMs in violation of the protective precautionary order issued by the PET. Its purpose is to preserve the integrity of the ballot boxes and other equipment used in the last elections. Despite the plea, the Comelec seems to rush with it and threatens to charge Marcos for the delay of the VCMs return to Smartmatic on October 26, 2016.

Credibility of Philippine Elections

The Philippines is noted to have very fraudulent elections. Lawmakers opt for the digital system to hopefully give faster and cleaner results. However, the evidence gathered by the Marcos camp prove otherwise. The last election is the dirtiest and most fraudulent election the country ever had.

Bongbong Marcos’ Protest is the Fight for All Filipinos

The Marcos camp vows to fight until the very end – because the integrity of the country’s election system is at stake. They would not stop until all the fraud and machinations are exposed. Filipinos must be vigilant that the culprits cannot carry out the same cheating methods in future elections.

Technology Expert’s Analysis: Data in Unused SD Cards Can Corrupt Election Files

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

No one speculates the facts from the Bongbong Marcos camp. The data in unused SD cards corrupts the election files. An SD card is a type of memory card typically used in digital cameras and other portable devices. To avoid corrupt files, formatting SD Cards is necessary. Smartmatic fails to do this.

Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Former senator Bongbong Marcos says data found in some SD cards retrieved from supposedly unused vote-counting machines prove there was fraud in the 2016 elections.

Inquirer’s Opinion

According to Inquirer, the claims of the camp of Bongbong Marcos of election fraud in the decryption of secure digital (SD) memory cards are speculative and not automatically accurate is inaccurate. It is because the technical term of an unused SD card with data is “corrupted.” Thereby, anything that is stored in there are corrupted files. Since the files are corrupt, there is fraud.

Continued Decryption is Delaying Electoral Protest ruling

The decrypting process of the rest of the 127 SD cards is a delaying tactic of the Comelec. The poll body cannot provide a timeline on when the decryption of the 127 SD cards will be finished.

Further Decryption of SD cards Unnecessary

Contrary to Robredo’s camp, the most prudent course of action now is not to wait for the result of the decrypting process. The data retrieved from the first 13 SD cards must be disclosed to the public.

Show Data for Expert and Public Analysis

To cut the story short, Comelec only has to show the data in the first 13 SD cards. If they fail to do this immediately, they are obviously hiding something. Delay of such act is highly speculative.

Electoral Protest of Bongbong Marcos Leads to the Discovery of Biggest Digital Election Fraud

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Smartmatic decrypts 26 SD cards where 13 of them have folders that contain data in them. It is very unlikely why some of the 120 SD cards have data in them when they come from unused VCMs kits. This supports the Marcos camp’s protest that SC preserves the VCMs until the election protest finishes because they are vital in the protest.

Youtube video by; EagleNews PH
[VIDEO]: The camp of Bongbong Marcos challenged the Comelec to show the content of supposed to be unused SD cards that are suspected to be used.

Decryption is still Ongoing

The Comelec decrypts of 26 of the 127 SD cards found to have data during the stripping of 1,356 unused VCMs last October 2016. This still goes on until they finish all the 127 SD cards.

A Booster of Marcos’ Position

This strengthens the position of Bongbong Marcos that massive fraud indeed happens during the last elections. SD cards from unused VCMs should be empty. Marcos lawyer, Victor Rodriguez confirms that they have data in them. He also serves as the spokesperson of Marcos.

Hurdles along the Way

It is not easy for the Marcos camp to continue the fight against Vice President Leni Robredo’s occupying the second highest position in the land. The discovery inspires Marcos’ team to not surrender.

Dedicated to Fight Until the End

There is no way that Bongbong Marcos stops his electoral protest against Robredo, especially now that even without knowing the content yet, it’s already proven that there’s indeed cheating since data exist in SD cards that are declared unused. That is already a clear lie!

PET Authorizes Comelec to Return VCMs Pending Marcos Electoral Protest to Move Forward


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Supreme Court’s Philippine Electoral Tribunal grants the motion filed by the poll body last August and orders Comelec to “immediately conduct stripping activities for all the vote counting machines and other election materials for the timely return to Smartmatic.
The PET also directs the Comelec to expedite its complaint and “allow the parties and representatives of the Tribunal to observe and comment during the cleanup.

Return of VCMs to Smartmatic

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) starts the process of returning the vote counting machines (VCM) to Smartmatic as the Supreme Court, sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), disregards the plea of Bongbong” Marcos to preserve these in his protest case against Vice President Leni Robredo. This is SC’s way of speeding up the electoral protest ruling.

Rushed Stripping can Erase Data

Early on. Bongbong Marcos’ camp is in haste in seeing possibilities of erasing evidence. They doubt why Comelec defies a lawful order of the highest court just to accommodate Smartmatic. They may appear to be in a rush to turn over the VCMs to Smartmatic but perhaps necessary to move forward.

Stripped of Data

In the electoral protest, the Marcos camp opposes the return of more than 1,000 VCMs because the unused SD cards from these machines are stripped of data during a 14-hour activity at the Comelec warehouse in Sta. Rosa, Laguna as witnesses recount. They are under the protection of Pastor Boy Saycon from the Binay Camp.

SC Avoids Penalty and Moves Forward

The PET asks the Comelec for the itemized cost of the fees due to be paid to Smartmatic for the delay in the return of election equipment due to the Marcos’ protest. The Comelec claims that the damage would be P2.078 billion. Therefore, this COMELEC order serves the public welfare most of all. Unless this step is done, the next proceedings of the electoral protest cannot move forward toward a resolution to settle the Marcos-Robredo issues.

SC order to COMELEC on Marcos protest timely and important
