The likely top senatorial candidate for election 2019, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos has full commitment to clean and renewable energy. She renews her advocacy on this matter during the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Forum held previously in Laoag City. This gives hope to the country’s local deuterium explorers to produce clean hydrogen fuel as a substitute for gasoline. They are certain that with her influence, they can finally get the pending oil and gas exploration permit from the DOE’s Evaluation Section. However, the “Resistance” is also building up to counteract her ideologies.

The Resistance for Election 2019

The president of the opposition Liberal Party (LP) hopes to see a strong opposition in the 2019 midterm elections. He echoes the statement of his party-mate, Senator Bam Aquino who eyes a “resistance” coalition in next year’s polls. Senator Francis Pangilinan said a genuine opposition is needed to make sure that the country’s “democracy remains vibrant.”




Hydrogen Fuel from Deuterium

Deuterium is abundant in the Philippines. 100% Filipino explorers bank on the President’s good governance to finally drive this project forward. He already endorses the 60 -40% deal in favor of the government to the DOE. No foreign consultants partake in this private-public joint-venture. The aim is to produce clean hydrogen fuel for local consumption first. This can uplift the nation’s economy. They intend to refine locally using a portable mini refinery machine from Korea on site. A Refinery and distilling plant can arise locally in the future on a partnership basis with global players particularly ASEAN.




Hiccups at the DOE Evaluation Section

In a democratic country, contrary to the LP propaganda, lawmakers from the Senate and Congress have great influence in the country’s decision-making process. If both chambers are not in unison with the wishes of the President, the delay for beneficial projects like this one can happen. Foreign investors through the oligarchs want to bring crude oil out. Then refine in their country. Just to sell them back to the Philippines at surging commercial prices. The Filipino consortium turns their offer down. Thus, made them suspect why their permit is withheld. The DOE meanwhile, asks the group to show proof of financial capability. So, this is all about money.




The Resistance’s Unacceptable Liberalism

Back to Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, she believes that the latest expose on alleged irregularities during the 2016 elections could strengthen the election protest of her brother, Bongbong Marcos, against the Vice President. It is also on file that Senator Tito Sotto previously expresses his disgust to decriminalize illegal drug use in the country. Vice President Leni Robredo floats the idea. She insinuates this Liberalism stand of her backers from the “Resistance” slate against President Rodrigo Du30 whom the Marcoses support. Can they still fool people with the dictatorship myth to jeopardize democracy and economic progress of the country?

Sept 21 Marks the Civility of the Marcoses Particularly Bongbong and Imee

civility





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As the “yellows” get ready to oust the President of Sept. 21, Du30 calls the Commission on Human Rights Chair Chito Gascon names. This coincides with the 45th anniversary of Martial Law declaration under the Marcos regime. Since the time of the late Ferdinand Marcos, politics has been passionate and personal. Word wars are common sometimes fist fights can happen. However, the Marcos patriarch, his wife, and children maintain their civility despite the odds. They never use “below the belt” expressions to describe their enemies.

Demonized by Society

The Marcos family has been severely demonized in social media memes, rally placards, and history textbooks. This includes those written by journos who pretend to be historians. It spread through classroom lectures, speeches, training workshops for history teachers, creative works, and artistic performances. Even homilies of priests during masses also contain unfair judgments. Nevertheless, the Marcoses provide society a powerful lesson on civility in political discourse.



Example of Civility

The Marcos political dynasty, from former President Ferdinand Marcos to his wife Rep. Imelda Marcos shows civility. This continued to their more politically engaged children, former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Gov. Imee Marcos. Thus, a shining example of civility in political discourse. The third child, Irene-Marcos Araneta, is a model of dignity in silence.



Restrained Talks

Imee Marcos is always restrained when she talks about their political enemies. She did not launch a vitriolic counter-offensive even against Rep. Rudy Fariñas. She never said any demeaning word against their political enemies and critics. On the other hand, in the election controversy that surrounds the 2016 vice-presidential elections, there is no single instance that Bongbong Marcos directly accused Vice President Leni Robredo of being a cheat and a fraud – contrary to her being vocal on calling his family “thieves” with regards to the wealth for humanity.








Bad-Mouthing Saga

Meanwhile, the legislators, who strongly criticized President Du30, are part of the coalition who wants to unseat him. That would favor their LP bet, Robredo. Senators Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros and Antonio Trillanes IV and Representatives Teddy Baguilat, Tom Villarin and Gary Alejano attended its launch. They are all bad-mouthing the President and the Marcoses. Du30 retaliates but the Marcoses remain as they are.
