Popular social media personalities, Mocha Uson and Atty. Glenn Chong made it not just online but also offline. They can really draw enormous crowds nationwide and overseas. Their campaign strategy is a hit being fueled by voters themselves. The motorcade in Cebu, Hongkong meet and the merging of other senatorial hopefuls like Bong Go, Bato de la Rosa, and Dr. Willie Ong combine various sectors in society. Not to mention the influence of Imee Marcos who is pro-administration like them. Now, here are the real wealth from their political platorms. z

Mocha Uson’s Advocacy

Uson runs under Kasosyo Partylist, which advocates farmers’ welfare. However, she admits that Kasosyo agrees to accommodate her as its nominee even if she would be espousing the rights of migrant workers. The former Communications Assistant was also an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) at one time of her life.

Congress and Not the Senate

The former official heeds Presidential daughter, Mayor Sara Du30-Carpio’s advice to abolish the Makabayan Bloc that allegedly supports communists. This is why she feels that her inclusion is needed there. Bong Go, Bato de la Rosa, Imee Marcos, Pia Cayetano are already running for Senate seats.

Atty. Glenn Chong’s Belief

Atty. Glenn Chong on the other hand campaigns together with Uson in many occasions. He is in favor of federalism, the move to change the name of the Philippines to Maharlika, and most of all electoral reforms that made him popular due to his electoral fraud disclosure by the Comelec itself in connivance with Smartmatic. He also said that he is not keen to get the endorsement of neither the Catholic Church nor President Rodrigo Du30. Chong adds that he wants to win on his own with the help of the people.

Bong Go Hurts Kris Aquino

Despite being known as the President’s sidekick, Bong Go is not new to the circles of elite, business people, and entertainment personalities. Philip Salvador, the father of Kris Aquino’s son, Joshua is even his friend. Both act out some parts of the skit that the actor played with Aquino while the two starred in the 1994 movie Nandito Ako. Salvador declares that he truly loves her and sang the movie’s theme song. The latter then divulges that their joke hurts her. Previously, the President discloses that Go’s family has enourmous wealth that would made it unbelievable for him to be corrupt.

Health is Wealth

Veteran physician Dr. Willie Ong becomes a social media sensation for his helpful tips on almost every health condition. His knowledge in the medical is his tool in helping people especially the poor who need medical help. Dr. Willy is also active in a number of public services in different parts of the country. Ong considers illegal drug addiction as a long-standing problem in the Philippines. To address this, Ong said drug dependents must be given proper attention to help them recover. As a senator, he believes that he can help not just a few but a substantial number of citizens that would help pound wealth into the country.

Bongbong Marcos: Not Surprised that Mocha Uson Resigns but Wished her Well on the Congress or Senate Choices

Congress


By: Elena Grace Flores

The resignation of PCOO ASec Mocha Uson is not a surprise to Bongbong Marcos. He knows that she is never comfortable at her vacated post because the government’s detractors are always attacking her on various issues. It may be sad for Marcos to see a friend goes out of public service, he wishes her well and hopes that she can find a position where she can be happy. Previously, the sexy personality announces that the fight is not over yet for her. Uson mentions that she will bring her case to the Congress or the Senate. This prompts people to believe that she might run for Senator or Congresswoman during the mid-term elections.



YouTube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: This week we bid farewell to a friend in public service, and we also welcomed new friends to our circle of service.


Uson’s Resignation

The executive branch did not pressure Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson to vacate her post. Although her resignation is expected to be accepted by President Rodrigo Duterte. Uson was in the United States earlier this week as part of the Philippine delegation to the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Presidential Assistant, Bong Go said Uson sent her letter of resignation last Tuesday, October 2, and is already in the President’s office. Uson can run for the Congress or the Senate if she wants to. She has around 5 million followers via social media.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Uson announces her resignation at the Senate as a “sacrifice” in exchange for the approval of the Presidential Communications Operations Office’s (PCOO) budget.  Asked if the resignation was connected to reports that Uson would be running for senator in the upcoming elections, Go said the announcement would come from Uson herself. He advises everyone to wait for her further announcement.


What Prompted the Resignation?

Go did not elaborate on the circumstances leading up to the resignation of Uson, but he said that Malacañang wishes her well. Prior to her resignation, Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Director General Harold Clavite publicly asked Uson to step down from her post citing her failure to attend plenary deliberations on the PCOO budget.



Robredo’s Camp Happy with Uson’s Decision

The camp of the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo said that the country did not lose anything in the resignation of Communications Assistant Secretary Uson.  Gutierrez, however, warned Uson that resigning from a government post does not exonerate her from liability over her previous actions. Robredo had been at the receiving end of Uson’s sharp criticisms in the past, at one time calling her stupid and idiot.


The Congress and Senate’s Real VP

Uson also calls Robredo “fake vice president” and identifies the former Senator Marcos as the real VP. Many Filipinos believe that the brave lady can even be more powerful without the restrictions from the government lawmakers who are critical of her. She is free to disclose everything that she knows and act in ways she deems appropriate. Another thing, she definitely establishes a good support by SAP Go and President Duterte himself aside from Marcos.

The Selfless Resignation of Mocha Uson can Lead her to Run for a Seat in the Senate or Congress

Congress


By: Elena Grace Flores

Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson said she resigns from her post. This is to aid the passage of her agency’s budget. She warns critics that her fight is not yet over. She makes the sacrifice so that the PCOO budget can be passed. The avid supporter of the President also tells her detractors not to make the mistake of thinking that they won. She did not resign because she’s scared. Uson just wants to have a fair chance when she faces them may it be n the Senate or in the Congress. This triggers speculations that she might be running for Senator or Congresswoman. As what Presidential Secretary Bong Go said; Just wait for her announcement.

YouTube video by Elena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: PCOO ASec Mocha Uson resigns after the lower House holds the agency’s budget because of her absence. She vows to bring her fight to the Senate and Congress.


Deferred PCOO Budget

The House of Representatives had deferred action on the budget of the Presidential Communications Operations Office after Uson failed to attend budget deliberations. She told a separate budget hearing at the Senate Wednesday that she missed the House hearings because she was at the United Nations General Assembly.

The Palace’s Consent

President Duterte is likely to accept Uson’s resignation, said Special Assistant to the President, Christopher “Bong” Go. We respect her resignation and we thank Asec. Mocha for her service to the Duterte government. She was a good ally, he added. Meanwhile, Presidential Chief Legal Counsel comments that it is Usons selfless act.


Congress Politics in Budget Deliberations

Uson alleged that several left-leaning congressmen were deliberately stalling the PCOO’s budge. This is after her interview with some Lumad, who claimed they were being “used” by the left against Duterte. She also slammed the lawmakers concerned for politicizing budget deliberations. Pichay also scolds top PCOO officials led by Sec. Martin Andanar. It is not known why Uson’s presence is a must when her boss himself is always present.



Wrong Accusations

Pichay and other lawmakers were upset after Andanar earlier committed to bringing Uson at the House plenary. This is to personally answer the queries of several legislators who wanted an explanation of her involvement in various controversial activities. Her personal blog particularly is the target of the inquiry.


Freedom of Speech

Uson believes that some lawmakers use their position to intimidate government agencies who are not in line with their personal agenda. She previously apologizes over a video about federalism that features dancing and another clip that upsets the deaf community. Her enemies always demand freedom of speech but they simply can’t give that to Uson.

Young Mathematician’s Numerology Calculation Leads to Bongbong Marcos’ Vice Presidency in 2019

numerology





By: Elena Grace Flores

While Vice President Leni Robredo is the subject of criticisms online because of her wrong computation throughout a press convention, a young mathematician emerges with Bongbong Marcos. Joaquin Gaffud reveals that Marcos would become Vice President in 2019 among his many political achievements. Gaffud based his prediction on his calculations following the numerology formula in mind.






Youtube video by Bongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos: Cube roots, Stephen Hawking, the exact day I was born – these were just some of the topics I never thought I’d be talking about with 10-year-old Wacky Gaffud! I was floored!




Bad in Math

Apparently, VP Robredo is not very good at her math. In a discussion regarding the rising price of rice, she muses over the expenses. With 40 being the price for a week, and there are 4 weeks a month. She computes 40 x 4 to get the expenses for rice in a month. She totals it at 1600.




A challenge to the Bias Media

If this error was made by Asec Mocha Uson, the yellow media will be all over it. There will be  comments from princess Fiona, Senator Bam Aquino, Kiko Pangilinan and Risa Hontiveros. So some are challenging the mainstream media to publish Robredo’s mathematical error too.

The Unwanted VP

President Du30 is clearly making it known that he doesn’t want Robredo to succeed him. To quote the president, “I have nothing against Robredo; she’s a lawyer, you’ve heard her talk, but I do not think she can improve on anything here.” He has always been vocal on being hesitant on going with a constitutional succession with Robredo as next in line.









Numerology and Others

Numerology is often associated with astrology and other such methods of divination. The focus of numerology is on the numerical values of things such as letters in words, in names and in ideas. Marcos is predicted to be the country’s leader in 2019 by various known fortune tellers and astrologers.




Timely Events

There have been dramatic transitions made in all the three branches of the government. We can guess as to what plans have been set to motion to beat the yellows. Various events unfold before the public. The present administration surely implements what they think the majority deserves.

The People’s Reaction to the Senator to be Imee Marcos’ Move On Speech Contradicts the Many Criticisms

senator





By: Elena Grace Flores

The so-called yellow media is quick enough to report on the various criticisms against the likely Senator to be Imee Marcos after she urges Filipinos to “move on” from the days of her father’s rule which was merely a “feud” between the Marcoses and the Aquinos. However, most of these known biased news outlets, ignore the sentiments of the majority. They have no clue what real people via social media are screaming about – which is to investigate who really killed Ninoy whose death was blamed to the late President Ferdinand Marcos who helped his family survive in exile. Perhaps it is time for them to use Google Analytics or other software to gauge their conclusions.





Youtube video by Rappler

[VIDEO]: Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos told Filipinos who continue criticizing her family to move on from Martial Law. (Please note that the Philippines can never have a dictator because of its democratic system of the 3 branches of government.)




The Opposition’s Attempt to Malign Marcos

The critics view Imee Marcos’ Speech as an attempt to frame the tragedies of Ferdinand Marcos’ regime as just a feud with the Aquinos. This is in contrast to how it was framed before. The LP set it like the people fought against a dictator. To quote Senator Kiko Pangilinan in his reaction to Imee’s Speech, “It was never an issue between the Marcoses and the Aquinos but an issue between the Marcoses and the entire nation that suffered immensely from the abuses, the greed and the oppressive and tyrannical rule of Marcos the dictator.”




Bam Aquino’s Closure Demand

As long as the Marcoses don’t own up to the wrongs they have done, the people cannot have closure, said Ninoy’s nephew. To quote Senator Bam Aquino, “It’s hard to get over something if there is no closure, especially if they keep on telling the public that the guilty party did no wrong.” However, ASEC Mocha Uson argues against him. It’s not the Marcoses who did wrong but the LP. She says that the Aquinos are refusing to disclose who the real killer of Ninoy is. After 2 terms, the Aquinos should have found out already. This is if they are keen on finding the culprit, she said.

LP Wants an Apology

The Liberal Party is denouncing Imee’s speech about moving on from the past of the Marcoses. Before they talk about moving on they should first express remorse and apologize. Bongbong Marcos already asked in the past what he should apologize for?









Human Rights Bluff

The Liberal Party is asking Imee Marcos to think on how the victims of Marcos’ human rights violations will “move on”. To quote them, “When there is no remorse, not an act of atonement, not acceptance and recognition of wrongdoing on their part? How can the Filipino people move on when the Marcos family continue to deny the billions of dollars in unexplained wealth that ran our economy to the ground and earned the late dictator the title world’s greatest thief?” Mind you, the Marcoses are never convicted of corruption in any court here and abroad.




Seats for Senator are the Judge

Neither Du30 or Marcos are dictators according to PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson. She says that Cory Aquino would fit the term more as she hasn’t won the election. The 2019 poll is coming soon. If Gov. Imee Marcos wins as Senator, it would mean that the stigma on the Marcoses is over. This should make the LPs realize their mistakes.

Shallow Mainstream Media are more Interested in Uson’s Pepedederalismo than in Election Reforms

election





By: Elena Grace Flores

Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson reveals that all the media networks seek to interview her about the “Pepedederalismo” jingle of Drew Olivar. Atty. Glenn Chong analysis the trend that when a serious public interest arises such as the election reforms, a shallow issue is magnified to cover up its impact. Chong clarifies that his advocacy has nothing to do with Bongbong Marcos because he started the cause since 2010. However, it is a great public interest that the people knew by heart that their votes for the namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos were not properly counted.






Youtube video by; Filipino Top 10

[VIDEO]:  ASEC. MOCHA NAKAPANAYAM SI ATTY. GLENN CHONG KAUGNAY NG MGA PASABOG NIYA SA SENADO




Filipinos to talk about Federalism

ASEC Uson said that the “Pepedederalismo” jingle video of pro-Du blo30gger Drew Olivar was only meant to get Filipinos to talk about federalism. At the rate it is going, it looks like Uson is successful in her quest. It’s not only the masses who are talking about it now but also the senators who are disgusted with its theater-like humor that depicts a woman’s private parts that captivate the target market. Appropriate or not, it remains debatable.




Who is Unethical?

“Pepe” is a colloquial term in the Philippines to refer to a vagina while “Dede” means the breasts. ASEC Uson is firm in her belief that there’s nothing unethical with the said jingle and dance act. After all, it is simply a Filipino humor which only the hypocrites won’t agree. She said, in fact, those media who are more into this craze than the current public interest on the electoral reforms are the unethical ones. They are into gossips than journalism.

Filipinos are Worried of the Election Fraud

Uson confirms that as a Filipino she is worried about the election fraud that is done digitally in connivance with Smartmatic, or the provider itself. Chong even said that its own president admits that their system can manipulate election results. Since they can do that there last year, they can also do the same in the country. He added that the first Smartmatic elected president is ex-Pnoy. This jives with the fact that the late President Cory Aquino’s speechwriter and media propaganda strategist is the Chairman of Smartmatic.




Diversion of the Main Issue

Mocha Uson might be a name that is not a typical politician but she is popular as herself. Chong said that she can even win a seat in the Senate but she can also lose through cheating. She is also right when she said that the most unethical thing is for the Comelec and its cohorts to manipulate the election results. Senators who are angry at the cheating deserve a new term in 2019. Whereas those who cuddle the offenders are likely the benefactors of the 2016 fraud.

Senate Fake News Hearing Unites Du30-Marcos Campaigners

senate





welcome By: Elena Grace Flore

All Filipinos always have political preference may they be in social or mainstream media. The recent proliferation of fake news Senate hearing distinguishes false information from opinions. Bloggers insist that democracy allows them to voice out their side of the story regardless of the other side. This is not the case with journalism as a profession. Analyzing the outcome, it is clear that the Du30-Marcos supporters come to terms with the tandem despite not voting for the same during the 2016 election.

Trillanes or Uson’s Media Credibility? Convict Binay First before Du30

media





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s accusations against former Vice President Jejomar Binay really destroyed his chances to be President. However, the opposition bets at that time against the Aquino administration outsmarted the LP. They forged an alliance to beat the “Yellows.” President Du30 emerges as the winner who is even fiercer than Binay personality wise. However, they both support Bongbong Marcos’ presidency.  Trillanes now applies the same anti-Binay media propaganda against Digong but to no avail. He somehow lost his credibility as his promise to convict Binay fades away.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News

[VIDEO]: Several senators slammed Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux “Mocha” Uson for insisting that she does not need to get both sides of a story before publishing a blog post – the same she demands of the media.




Binay Update

The court allows Binay to travel despite the objection from the prosecution, “considering that the said accused had already been conditionally arraigned.” Binay’s lawyers explained that Binay was invited by Dr. Gary Song-Huann Lin of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines. He is to deliver a speech on October 11 at a forum entitled “Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy”. They added that the trip will help improve the relations of the Philippines with its neighboring countries. So, he still serves the country in his capacity as former VP.



Business with Pleasure

Binay’s nine-day travel period includes a four-day trip to Hongkong for his “physical and holistic well-being.” The court sets the usual conditions like the P752,000 pesos as travel bond; the itinerary of travel shall be in Taipei, Taiwan, and Hong Kong only; he shall not leave the Philippines earlier than October 9 and to return on or before October 17; he should present himself to the court not later than 5 days upon arrival. Binay faces four graft, one count of malversation of public funds and nine counts of falsification for the alleged anomalous construction of the Makati City Hall parking building. These cases are not yet resolved due to lack of evidence.




Trillanes vs Uson

Senator Trillanes said Uson is a representative of the government, so there is no line separating her official position from the personal opinions on her blog. Uson’s Blog posts are basically a part of the dissemination of the PCOO as she is a senior official, he added. Therefore, this goes the same with Trillanes. Since he was a prosecuting Senator of Pnoy before, he is also using his position to scatter his biased accusations now. In Mocha’s case, she’s a blogger and all people including government officials can say their own opinions as democratic rights. It’s just a matter of how many followers they can get.









The Pro and Anti-Administration Stalwarts Battle

Media channels are crucial in the pro and anti-administration battle. Biased channels can now easily be corrected through public campaigns. Social media has the edge on this. Statistics can easily be obtained. Therefore, a biased group cannot claim anymore that the majority believes them without a supporting figure. In the case of Leni Robredo, she is fond of using the term “the people’s will.” However, Bongbong Marcos has more followers as per online data.

Bongbong Marcos Doesn’t Mind: Uson’s DSWD Online Survey that Robredo Tops is a Peace Offering

online





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

ASec Mocha Uson is a known critic of Vice President Leni Robredo. She surprises her by including Robredo in the online survey for possible DSWD Secretary choice. Eventually, she tops the poll and Bongbong Marcos who is for unity seems to not mind despite his ongoing protest against the VP. Palace Spokesperson Ernesto Abella thinks that this is difficult. He, however, trusts that the President has his way of doing things.






Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: VP Robredo, binisita ang ilang lumikas mula sa Marawi City




Public Gratitude

Vice President Leni Robredo expresses her gratitude to the public after she tops an online survey on the next social welfare secretary. Her critic, Mocha Uson, a blogger and assistant communications secretary of the Du30 administration initiates it. Robredo said that she was surprised that Uson included her among the choices. The VP should know that ASec Uson is now a government employee like her and in that instance, both should act as public servants and not as the campaigners for their party. This can be taken as a peace offering from Uson to Robredo.



Voters’ Trust

“First of all, I was surprised because my name was included. I also thank Asec. Mocha for believing in our ability to handle the position,” the Vice President said. She is also grateful to those who showed their trust by voting for her. Robredo tops the online survey through Uson’s Twitter account. It garners 81 percent of the votes. Uson initiates the poll after the decision of the Commission on Appointments to reject Judy Taguiwalo as head the Department of Social Welfare and Development.




Top Choices

Vice President Leni Robredo, Social Welfare Assistant Secretary Lorraine Badoy, and former Tarlac Representative Monica Teodoro-Prieto are included in the list of people who might replace Taguiwalo. Uson’s survey showed that Robredo is taking a wide lead against the Badoy and Prieto.








Not Saying NO to Robredo

Abella downplays the online poll. He said that the President has his own ways of picking the next DSWD chief. “I’m sure the President has the other ways of measuring a candidate’s capability, aside from surveys. It means that the President has a different set of categories,” he clarified. It seemed to be a “difficult choice.” “Perhaps, there may be conditionalities that may not be too favorable regarding that if it happens. I don’t know. It all depends on the President.” “I mean, I’m not saying no for Leni, I’m saying that it seems to be a difficult choice,” he added.

Robredo Leads DSWD Poll Survey but NOT Ideal as Bongbong Marcos’ Protest Continues

Protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

VP Leni Robredo is one of the possible replacements of former social welfare secretary Judy Taguiwalo. This is after Palace Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson includes her name in a Twitter poll. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that while he does not reject the idea that the VP can become the next social welfare secretary. However, Abella notes that the Political climate may not make her an ideal candidate. That can be right considering that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against her is still ongoing.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Umalma ang Malacañang sa komento ni Vice-President Leni Robredo na mabagal ang aksyon sa mga nasalanta ng bagyong “Nina,” at sinabing siya’y namumulitika. Sagot naman ni VP Leni, “nag-overreact” ang Palasyo.



Leads Twitter Poll

Robredo leads in the poll by ASEC Uson. She is ahead of DSWD Asst. Sec. Lorraine Badoy and Nikki Teodoro, wife of former Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr. It can be recalled that the VP was criticized when a typhoon strikes the Bicol region while was in America. Bongbong Marcos even visited her hometown that she appreciated later on. This is because they need all help that they can get, according to her.




Friction with the Palace

The palace was also irked when she observed that the relief goods were slow when she visited one Barangay during Typhoon Nina. The spokesperson said that she should have checked how the government officials particularly the DSWD worked so hard for the job.



Likely Leader in a Rebel

Since the VP is fond of visiting disaster areas as per her photo opportunity press releases, it can be a good idea to let her show that she can do better. It is also noted that she had a previous rift with the rejected DSWD chief Taguiwalo in the past.









Political Climate

It is also understandable that the palace cannot reckon to name Robredo as DSWD Secretary because she likes to criticize the Du30 administration. Perhaps, it is difficult to work on the same page with someone who has the rebellious nature. Besides, she has the electoral protest to concentrate on especially now that she has not paid the remaining tranche of her counter protest against Bongbong Marcos.
