LP’s fear for the return of Ferdinand Marcos intensifies. This happens after Bongbong Marcos announces his 2022 plan. The real battle between the Aquinos and the Marcoses is back. It’s heart-breaking to many Filipinos to see Marcos lose to Robredo at only 263,473 votes. Robredo got 14,418,817 votes and Marcos, 14,155,344. She’s compared to the former President Corazon Aquino. Robredo often justifies her love life with the late Jesse Robredo. But public sympathy leans towards Marcos.
LP capitalizes on the the death of Jesse Robredo. He’s the former interior secretary. His plane crashed in 2012. People spreculate foul play on the accident. The plot can beat Marcos, just like the Marcos-Aquino scenario. The assasination of Ninoy Aquino triggers the Edsa revolution in 1986. They blame Marcos for his death. So, as the tide turns, the blame game also diverts to the other party.
Evidence of massive election fraud now haunts the widow. Smartmatic’s election automation is allegedly responsible. The recount in Bongbong Marcos’ election protest even adds 15,000 more votes for Robredo. This proves that there’s undisputable discrepancy between the server and manual counts. Senator Imee Marcos currently endorses Senator Tito Sotto’s hybrid election bill. It’s more likely to prevent cheating again in 2022.

PDEA Region VII Director, Wardley M. Getalla said that the drug war of the Duterte administration is heading to the right direction – given the many positive statistics which is contrary to Robredo’s statement. When asked st the 888 News Forum, Dir. Getalla said that it was sad to hear such comment from her. The VP who in under protest by former Senator Bongbong Marcos only had 18 days tenure as the drug war czar. She was fired by the President for being incompetent.

Destruction of Marijuana Plantations
Getalla said that they were able to eradicate 11 marijuana plantations and 60 drug dens accross the region. They were also able to apprehend 15 cases of over half kilo of shabu operations. These are only few of the many statistics that they have on record.
Joint Operations with PNP and the Local Government
Continues monitoring of the ports for possible entry of the illegal substances are as tight as ever. K9 dogs are deployed to efficiently watch the region’s entrance and exit points. The PDEA also supports the operations of the PNP with the assistance of the local government that provides the facilities needed.
Protecting the Youth from the Harmful Substance
Entertainment places where the youth frequents are also under inspection. This is to make sure that no selling or distribution of illegal drugs can take place there. Such initiative happens after the numerous reports that the illegal drug trade is rampant in disco houses, hangout places, and drinking clubs.

The Drug War is NOT a failure
The PDEA Director sure knows what he is talking about. At the beginning of his speech, he enumerates the many programs they implemented and their current status. He is certain that President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs is on the right track to success. This is because of the halt or reduction of massive illegal drug operations in the region.

Although the Presumptive VP, Leni Robredo hopes for a favorable ruling from the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, she is not confident. No matter how she convinces herself that the turnout of the ballot recount is for her, she still has anxiety attacks. There might be things that Bongbong Marcos knows that she doesn’t, she added. The high court postpones its ruling on Marcos’ poll protest with the possible voting to October 8.

Based on What Robredo Knows
We cannot decide for the court and I cannot discuss the case, but we hope for a favorable decision considering that we know what happened during the entire process, Robredo said. She then accuses Marcos of tarnishing her reputation. Despite her arguments, worries can never escape her.
Atty. Vic on Marcos’ Side
Atty. Vic Rodriguez for the Marcos camp explains how some election protocol breaches happened. Such as the missing audit logs among other things. Atty. Romulo Macalintal said that the protestant’s spokesperson is lying. However, it’s the public opinion that counts.
Election Integrity versus Anxiety Attacks
Back to Robredo, she claims that the landmark ruling is “bigger than Marcos and her. It also illustrates the integrity of the local elections and the judicial system. We need to trust the system because this electoral process declared me and the President as winners, as well as all incumbent officials. If we do not believe the electoral process, it’s like we’re saying that everyone in power now is a fraud, the one with anxiety said.
Possible Outcome of the Ruling
SC Spokesperson Brian Keith Hosaka explains that all 15 members of the high court have been given copies of the poll recount report. They are prepared by Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa. Although, they are yet to decide on Marcos’ poll protest.The recount result will determine dismissal or the extension of the recount scope to other areas beyond Iloilo, Negros Oriental, and Camarines Sur.

Clean election advocate and candidate for Senator, Atty. Glenn Chong claims that his aide Richard Santillan is a victim of police brutality. This is contrary to the police report. He figures ambush after seeing his car with at least 30 bullet hits. Chong can only blame Smartmatic that aids election cheaters to manipulate voting results. The lawyer previously exposes the anomalies in the 2016 elections. This coincides with the Marcos-Robredo electoral protest proceedings.

Spot Report is Inconsistent with the Physical Evidence
Chong is certain that his aide’s murder by the police happens at around 2 a.m. on Dec. 10 in Cainta, Rizal. This is based on a video that they got. According to Chong, the footage shows patrol cars in front and at the back of Santillan’s car that he owns. Quite a contrary to the police spot report that there was a shootout. He also puts logic on the authority’s claims about Santillan’s alleged possession of shabu. Then accuses the cops of planting evidence there.
Loopholes to be Proven
He also points out some loopholes in the police spot report on the allegations that Santillan is a suspect as a member of the Highway Boys Group which operates in Taytay, Cainta, and Pasig City. Santillan is a constant companion of Chong in his political errands in the last 8 years. Santillan’s autopsy reports that his body tests negative of paraffin. He is also not a drug trader. No gun and it is unlikely that the grenade found can be hidden inside Chong’s car.
All 14 policemen that have to do with the brutal attack are now relieved from their posts. Sacked were Senior Supt. Lou Evangelista as provincial director of Rizal and Supt. Pablito Nangang, as chief of police of Cainta. The others are 10 members of the CALABARZON Regional Intelligence Group and four cops from Cainta police station.
Administrative Relief Pending Investigation
Chief Supt. Edward Carranza, director of the CALABARZON regional police, said his order was an administrative relief pending the investigation on the death of Richard Santillan in Cainta.
Election 2019 Senatorial Candidate
To avenge Santillan’s death, Chong runs for Senator in the 2019 elections. He said that it was his close aide’s intention to serve him while he remains true to his country. He vows to continue his fight for clean elections in the Senate should he win a seat. The generous support of his followers and allies really overwhelms Atty. Chong.
Atty. Glenn Chong emerges as the man of the hour during the automated election probe as the resource person of the Senate inquiry on the anomalous Comelec procedure powered by Smartmatic. He backs up the earlier claims of Senator Tito Sotto that advance transmissions indeed happened. The young lawyer is not only an enthusiast for clean poll since 2010 but also an IT expert. He can explain the malicious acts clearly both technically or use an analogy for the general public to understand. Besides, he made sure that the evidence in hand is from the Comelec itself as per the subpoena requested by Sotto.

A Character Assassination against Atty. Chong
It must be clear that the recent probe was not the VP election protest of Bongbong Marcos. However, it is evident that on the seats of the resource speakers for the opposition headed by Senator Franklin Drilon, Vice President Leni Robredo’s media consultant and lawyer were among them. In fact, Atty. Bernadette Sardillo, Robredo’s counsel was caught handling a note to Drilon. That was for him to attack the credibility of Chong.
Atty. Chong was more than Ready for the Election Probe

[VIDEO]: DRILON TAMEME KAY GLENN CHONG ‘Hindi sila nakasagot kasi handa ako’ – Maharlika w/ Glenn Chong
Atty. Chong was ready with his technical expertise, wit and documentary evidence. The Comelec representatives were safer not opening their mouth or they could give Chong more power to expose their incompetence. Their only means to recover is to use the media to assassinate Chong’s character. They insist that he is Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer which he denied since he is smart enough not to accept the nomination. That shows his strong dedication to his advocacy that money can’t buy.
The Analogy of the Findings
He calls Sardillo as the tutor and Drilon as the pupil. He said that it seems that the tutor failed to teach the pupil because the instruction concerning the election probe does not match the document showed by Drilon which is for the electoral protest of Marcos. As per the May 8 illegal transmissions, the DNS serves as directory assistance. It directs the VCM machines where to send the results. Chong can read this through the actual technical behavior of the system when the machine is asking the DNS server where it has to forward the results to on hand. 459 machines were asking where to sent the results even before the election day.
James Arthur B. Jimenez, Comelec’s spokesperson admits that the impact of Chong’s revelation is quite overwhelming. This is despite the mainstream media blackout. Jimenez is quite right that the incident is powered by social media. However, it is not just solely that but it is most especially powered by the people. He can hope all he wants that this news will die down but at the rate, it is going, the Filipino people are united in educating the rest when it comes to the sins of the Comelec and its cohorts that benefit from its fraudulent activities using Smartmatic.
Powered by the People using Social Media
Atty. Chong can trust that this time, he is not alone in his quest to strive for a clean and honest election. Social media users are intensely reactive to his disclosures as shared non-stop over Facebook and other online communities. Many accounts are blocked but Chong is once again ready to file a complaint to any online messaging tool operators violating the Freedom of Speech provision. This man is really something and the Filipinos can only support such a figure for the good of the country.
Atty. Romulo Macalintal’s lie that the camp of former Senator Bongbong Marcos sent food to their outing with the Supreme Court or PET revisors in Calamba, Laguna meets the fury of Erwin Tulfo on air. In the first place, they do not have the right to celebrate or unwind while leaving Filipinos in the dark with their gag order. Atty. Vic Rodriguez is right to say that the activity violates its own ruling.

[VIDEO]: MGA PATAY GUTOM NA REVISOR NG PET AT TAUHAN NI LENI ROBREDO NAGSI-LAMON AT NAG-OUTING SA LAGUNA
The camp of Bong Bong Marcos recently asks the Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to probe the recent swimming party. Some of the PET revisors or at least Head Revisors who determine the number of votes that can go to either party in the ongoing recount were there. The others were the chief tabulator, alternate head revisor, appraiser and at least six ballot box custodians and their chief. It just happens that a revisor of Vice President Leni Robredo was also present in the said event. There were a total of 24 people from the Supreme Court in the controversial excursion.
Marcos learned about the outing through the Facebook account of PET Head Revisor Maria Katrina (Che-Che) Rosales. She posted the photos of the “Pansol outing” on Sunday, June 24, 2018. The picture in her account shows the 24 PET personnel together with Osmundo “Ritchie” Abuyuan who is one of the revisors of Robredo. Marcos added that on July 2, Rosales, in an apparent attempt to “to rectify her mistake of publicly posting the incriminating photos of their ‘Pansol outing’,” deleted the photos from her Facebook account.
A Violation of the Judicial Ethics
It is prohibited to fraternize with the party revisor for the Protestee by the Tribunal because such act is prescribed by the Code of Conduct for Court Personnel. It is also stated in the Canon of Judicial Ethics,” Marcos said in his petition. The “Pansol outing” implies that Robredo’s camp already has the favor with these PET personnel. That can allow them to manipulate, influence and control the revision proceedings and maneuver the results to her advantage, said Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Marcos’ spokesperson.
Protestant Marcos now questions the ongoing judicial recount and revision proceedings. They can’t blame him to think that there can be compromises in the results. Given that the same is done by the very same PET personnel who appear to be in cahoots with the Robredo’s camp. The role of the Head Revisors is crucial in the ongoing revision of votes. This is because they are the ones who preside over their respective revision committees and control the conduct of the judicial recounting of ballots.
Bongbong Marcos reiterates how Vice influential President Leni Robredo can be with the Supreme Court should her petition to lower the election shading threshold from 50% to 25% in the middle of the recount is successful. The PET earlier junks Robredo’s said petition but she submits a motion for reconsideration. Marcos also firmly opposes the plea in a separate petition not to grant her request.

Playing the Underdog
VP Robredo fails to convince the public that she’s the underdog in the VP race protest against her by Marcos. She keeps on accusing the latter of masterminding fake news that allegedly maligns her reputation. The vice president further accuses Marcos and said that unfortunately for her, former Senator “has the money to spend to damage her character.”
The President’s Hand
However, the Marcos loyalists are passionate enough to fight for what they believe in without the said well-oiled infrastructure that the VP is famous for. They are grateful enough to be recognized as followers of the son of the greatest leader the Philippines ever had. President Rodrigo Du30 is himself is a believer of the late President Marcos. He is the only President after the older Marcos to continue his massive development plans for the country. Build, Build, Build and the likes.
Supreme Court is still Dominated by Caguioa
Previously, Gov. Imee Marcos expresses her concern on Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s loyalty to the previous administration headed by his classmate who appointed him in the position, Former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. His being the Chair of the PET put’s her brother’s case in uncertainty as seen in his various bias rulings in favor of Robredo.
Gossip vs. Facts
The media mechanism of Robredo is now busy launching a reputation management campaign for her. However, there’s not much they can do with the reasonings of the VP. If being quiet against fake news did not work for her, she will surely be hooked from her own mouth. She should address issues as they are like what Bongbong Marcos is doing.

ThePresident was Cheated and He Knows it
The President said it many times to Sereno that he always follow the rule of law. Despite that, the ousted Chief Justice never stops discrediting him. That drives the Filipino leader to deal with her head on. At the present time, revisors of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal of the Supreme Court said that there were votes cast for President Duterte that were not counted in his favor. They randomly check the votes cast for the presidency “to check if there were also discrepancies in the presidential election after discovering discrepancies in the results for the vice presidential election.” President Duterte won the 2016 election with more than 6.6 million votes than those garnered by his closest rival, Mar Roxas.
Justices to Decide to Continue the Recount
The manual recount and revision of votes in the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is now in its seventh week. The results in the recount and revision of ballots in the three provinces would determine if the PET, composed of all Supreme Court justices, would still pursue the protest in 24 more provinces and cities covered by Marcos’ case.
Not Surprising for the Marcos Camp
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez of the Marcos Camp said that the reduction of votes for President Duterte was not a surprise. “We are not surprised by such report because it just confirms what we have been saying all along – that the cheating was widespread that it also affected President Duterte but his lead was insurmountable that all attempts failed,” Rodriguez said.
Big Change in the Supreme Court
The removal of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno from the Supreme Court signals an upcoming big change in the government. Many Filipinos suspect and hope that the declaration of the VP race real winner is next to come. Marcos can be the new Vice President soon. Things may be quiet now because of the gag order but one thing is certain; the Philippines will soon have their elected leaders and much more.

The Supreme Court Votes
Speculations abound that the Supreme Court will vote on the petition by May 11, 2018, and that the numbers seem to be against the Chief Justice. Some lawyers are protesting the alleged unconstitutionality of ousting a Chief Justice in a route outside of impeachment. Sereno herself said that her colleagues who are unfavorable to her from the start cannot oust her from the position.
There was massive cheating at the polls in 2016. The presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte reportedly got 21 million votes and ended up with only 16 million. The 5 million votes reportedly went to candidate Mar Roxas, who was fourth in the pre-poll surveys — next to Grace Poe and Jojo Binay — but went up to No. 2 after the ballots were counted. Duterte was so far ahead that all the cheating the Liberal Party did was in vain.
LP’s Back-Up Plan
So, failing to put Roxas in the No. 1 position in the presidential race, the LP had to make his vice presidential bet Robredo win at all cost. That’s the reason Bongbong Marcos was leading Robredo, her closest rival, by about 1 million votes on the night of May 14; but the people were shocked to find that she had overtaken him when they woke up the following morning.
Robredo might not know the maneuverings of her own party as she was too naive to even think of cheating. A supporter said that her husband Jesse always won handily in the elections for mayor of Naga City. Therefore she cannot imagine losing even if it against a popular rival such as Marcos. However, she absolutely give-in to those fraudulent acts as soon as she agreed to be LP’s political prostitute. This goes the same to Chief Justice Sereno. The people on the other hand, continue to show forces behind Marcos through their affiliations like the INC’s Guinness record-breaking charity walk and the Marcos Loyalists Movement gatherings nationwide.

INC Beats Indian Record
Guinness adjudicator Paulina Sapinska said that the INC beats previous record-holder India, which formed the sentence “you can you will” with 16,550 students on August 10, 2016. This was during their celebration of World Youth Day. The INC’s winning version was done during its Worldwide Walk to Fight Poverty. It is also happening simultaneously in 43 other countries across 18 time zones.
About 1.2 to 1.5 Crowd Estimate
Supt. Erwin Margarejo, Manila Police District (MPD) spokesperson, estimates the crowd at 1.5 million. They occupy 1.6-kilometers (km) from the Cultural Center of the Philippines up to Salas St. along Roxas Boulevard. About 700 policemen from the Southern Police District and 200 personnel from the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) were to secure the area. The walk starts at 6 a.m. in Manila. It is also being held simultaneously in Davao Oriental, Abra, Bicol, Albay, Benguet, Aurora, Pangasinan, Calamian, Quezon province, and Iloilo.
INC members are also doing the same in 43 other countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Spain, and France. The group attempts to hold four other official Guinness titles: the largest picture mosaic formed by people, most nationalities in a charity walk, the largest charity walk in a single venue, and even break its own record for largest charity walk across multiple venues which it previously held in 2014.
First Worldwide Walk
The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes the INC’s first Worldwide Walk since 2014 as the largest charity walk across multiple venues held in 24 hours. The number of participants initially starts at 519,221 individuals in 129 sites in 16 countries. This year’s event is just massive. Gov. Imee Marcos’ presence during the awarding ceremony hints that she may also be an endorsee of the INC for the 2019 Senatorial Race just like her brother for VP in the 2016 election.
