Bongbong Marcos presents a wealth of evidence on fraud with regards to his electoral protest. This is not possible before according to the law. But now that the decision is out, he feels obliged to make them public. Therefore, at the bar of public opinion, he seeks further justice.
Justices Did Not See Wealth of Evidence
Marcos blames Associate Marvic Leonen for hiding the wealth of evidence he presented. Most justices did not see those during the en banc. That’s why he gets the unfavorable verdict. Nonetheless, the people must judge for themselves.
Unity for Everyone’s Welfare
It is a constant debate among Marcos’ supporters that their social media pages must be exclusive for the Marcoses. However, many believe that to achieve unity, non-loyalists must know the side of Bongbong Marcos too. This is the true quest of the former Senator. He doesn’t even mind the commercial ads on social media pages dedicated to him. He urges everyone to support these kinds of businesses on the net.
Doy Laurel wrote in his book the confidential message of FEM to Cory Aquino.
Marcos Wealth Offer
The 1992 book of then Vice President Doy Laurel, Neither Trumpets Nor Drums contains this confidential message from the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The story “From the Lips of a Dying President” of the Manila Bulletin confirms this. Laurel’s Honolulu visit in 1989 after the call of former first lady Imelda Marcos in February that year was unforgettable for him. He was in the opposition but Marcos trusts his principle. Ex-President Marcos offers 90% of his wealth to the people. Only 10% he would retain for his family. Did then President Corazon Aquino heed his plea?
Principle vs. Humanity
Tell Aquino to stop her relatives asking for too much from me, said Marcos. Laurel tries to talk to Aquino but the latter refuses. She advices him to talk to the media himself. However, the message was meant for Aquino personally. And she could decide to tell the public about it. Laurel might be against Marcos when it comes to martial law. But the late president knew about his former VP’s humanitarian character.
Aquino’s Response to Laurel
Aquino did not even have 3 minutes for her Vice President. She has an hour for Tom Cruise but not for Laurel. Aquino’s alleged transparency stand did not make Laurel betray his confidentiality promise to Marcos. He seriously believes until his death that if only Aquino listens to Marcos, the country will solve all its financial problems. Since he cannot convince her, he made sure that proper documentation is made before his demise.

Malacañang previously said that Congress must authorize President Rodrigo Duterte to enter into negotiations with the Marcos family. This is for the return of the Marcos wealth under the Central Bank, Word Bank and IMF certifications equivalent to the gold deposits. It was worth $35 per ounce during the time of former President Ferdinand Marcos but now, the value is at $1,729.25 per ounce.
Gold Reserves as Protection for the Economy
The President said Senator Imee Marcos told him that the late Filipino leader Ferdinand Marcos took the wealth including gold bars to “protect the economy.” He said he accepted this explanation. It was legally obtained. That’s why no cases can hold the Marcoses accountable to it. After all, they still belong to the Philippines.
The Return of Ferdinand Marcos
Duterte openly supports the Marcos family. He cheers on the late Marcos’ namesake, Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. His vice-presidential bid in 2016 is still under electoral protest. It awaits a decision from the Supreme Court. The Marcos family is known to groom him for the presidency as well. The legal fight against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo could put him in the country’s second-highest office. When it does, it would be easier for the President to pass the torch to him to face the Covid-19 challenge. He is still recovering from the infection at this point. So, he would certainly be immune to the virus when his time to lead the nation comes.

Meet the Keeper of the Wealth for Humanity
The trust for the benefit of humanity holds the World Bank gold certificates issued to the late President Ferdinand Marcos for the deposits in overseas banks. However, most of these stocks are just at the Central Bank. The current World Bank Loans with almost zero percent interest for 29 years plus 10 years grace period are proofs enough that these reserves are real. President Rodrigo Duterte said previously that he would instruct the Congress to convene to recover the Marcos Wealth. The family cannot do this alone.
The World Bank and the IMF
The World Bank and its sister organization, IMF (International Monetary Fund) are special organizations that sit on top of the world’s wealth. They are hidden in secrecy. 400,000 metric tons of them are in the Central Bank. 200,000 metric tons are in the Union Bank of Switzerland. The rest are shipped to around 200 countries. Former First Lady Imelda Marcos is the keeper of the bill of lading.
Warring Factions on the Marcos Wealth
Senator Imee Marcos is the only senator who pushes to secure the World Bank loan necessary to keep the economy afloat during the Covid-19 outbreak. She is known to have a strong alliance with the President. Strong enough to obtain the recent $500 million initial loan. This can go on depending on the extend of the Coronavirus devastation. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The whole world is in need. Since the country has tasted the fruits of the late President Marcos’ labor already, it’s about time that the Congress must prioritize to convene on the said issue to save and rebuild humanity as a whole. Warring factions should not matter anymore at this time.

The Congress Needs to Hear the Wealth for Humanity Case
President Rodrigo Duterte earlier swears that the Congress will pass a law for the gold transfer to happen. “It’s a long process,” he said. “It does not belong to me. It was just a signal from the Marcoses they will cooperate to secure what the people are believing to be theirs.” The Marcos family also has the right to defend themselves that the wealth was not stolen by their patriarch or else they could have direct access to it. The Congress must prioritize this to rebuild the nation’s economy for the coronavirus aftermath. The late President Ferdinand Marcos’ heir, his trustee, and Central Bank with the approval of the President through the Congress can make this happen.
The Country’s Gold Reserves
The Philippines have so much gold starting when the late Ferdinand E. Marcos was still a young, and dashing lawyer. He already became two of the richest Filipinos even before he became president because of the trust of the Tallano royal family. The collection even grew abundantly when combined with the Maharlika gold and the Yamashita treasures. Brilliant as he was, Marcos made sure that they are documented for humanity and serve the Filipino people as economic support or gold reserves. This is the reason why the country never gets bankrupt like Belgium despite the world’s financial crisis.
The Marcos Foundation
The Marcos Foundation holds the rights for the gold collection as registered in the Central Bank of the Philippines. The foundation’s beneficiaries are the Filipino people. The 50 year validity period has already expired at Central bank so, the government has the jurisdiction for its assignment in cooperation with the World Bank. It is expected that the claim can be honored only when the bill of lading and the representative for the beneficiaries which is the government can be presented to the World Bank hand in hand. The overseas banks where they are deposited do not own them. The World Bank only acts as the globe’s martial for their intended use as protected by the late Marcos using his expertise in the law.

Close Ties with the President
A martial law survivor sees President Rodrigo Duterte’s close ties with the Marcos family and the lack of Duterte’s support for the Presidential Commission on Good Government as reasons why the agency is not winning any cases. The evidences shown by the PCGG do not constitute as public records because the certified true copies are mere photocopies.
Loans and Mortgages
Sandiganbayan’s Second Division already dismisses the P1.052 billion ill-gotten wealth case previously. The case is against Bienvenido Tantoco, Sr., the Marcos couple, among others. This is in connection with the Tantoco clan’s 11 real estate properties in the Philippines, Hawaii, and Rome. Shares of stocks in 19 companies; cash on hand and in a bank; jewelry; notes, loans, and mortgages receivable. Motor vehicles and three Cessna aircraft. Senator Imee Marcos, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., Irene Marcos and Constante Rubio, a close associate of the former president are also in the complaint.
The Sandiganbayan Affirms the Dismissal of Another Marcos Case
The Sandiganbayan dismisses earlier the P200-billion forfeiture case against the Marcos family due to lack of evidence. The anti-graft court also junks prior to that a P102-billion ill-gotten wealth case against Ferdinand Marcos and wife Imelda and 11 of their cronies due to the prosecution’s failure to present evidence. Recently, the Sandiganbayan also junks the Philippine government’s appeal on the dismissal of the P267 million ill-gotten wealth case against the Marcos couple and their cronies.

It is a common question by the Dilawans or Aquino-loyal oppositions that if the wealth for humanity preserved by the late President Ferdinand Marcos is not stolen, why would they offer to “return” 90 percent of it? In fact, it’s a possession that need not to be returned according to case acquittals in courts. However, ex-President Marcos’ will clearly segregates it from the 10% of his family’s inheritance. They are in the hands of trustees. Marcos’ letter in former Vice President Doy Laurel’s possession addressed to Cory Aquino says it all.

Former VP Doy Laurel Witnesses Cory Aquino’s Greed
President Ferdinand E. Marcos gave Doy Laurel a letter addressed to President Corazon Aquino proposing that 90 percent of all his assets worldwide would be given to a foundation in trust for the Filipino people. Unfortunately, Cory ignored Doy.
Marcos to Doy Laurel:
“Please tell Mrs. Aquino to stop sending her relatives. They are proposing so many things, all I want is to die in my country. Tell her to let me come home. I will turn over 90 percent of all my worldly possessions to our people. I will ask only 10 percent for my family. That is much better than her relatives are proposing.”
To Return or to Turn Over Wealth to the People
There is a big difference between the highly publicized alleged “return” of the Marcos wealth versus the “turn over” term of Marcos as shown in his letter to Aquino. His will and testament clearly states that such earthly possessions are for the people’s welfare. Livelihood and educational programs are few of the priorities along with healthcare, disability and retirement benefits. Not to mention national infrastructure, agrarian, and irrigation developments.Plus the rehabilitation of mining and industrial projects.
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos Pleads the Senate
YouTube video by
Imelda Marcos said that her husband was not a thief. His fortune is from his gold trading passion. The senate hearing was a live broadcast by a cable television company. This allows many Filipinos to see for the first time Mrs. Marcos’ stand on the hidden wealth. Nonetheless, they also see for themselves how the mainstream media twists many facts just to discredit the Marcoses.
Not with the Marcoses but with the Trustees
Marcos’ widow pleads with the senate to help her implement her husband’s will and testament for the humanitarian foundation. The assets must be taken from the hands of the trustees. This was her most urgent reason to attend that particular hearing. Unfortunately, the interrogators were only into controversial matters other than to alleviate the sufferings of Filipinos from poverty.

Bongbong Marcos is often the first to recognize the vital needs of Filipinos. He sets aside boundaries, differences of opinions and grudges to realize these. Senator Nancy Binay, on the other hand, is often misunderstood. The Binay family supports the Marcoses’ return to power. But her opinion on matters relating to the martial law years is given colors. However, it seems that BBM understands and respects individuality. Therefore, he is grateful enough to be in Binay’s company. His vlog on Human Settlements issue shows this. Marcos also gives Binay credit for the job well done regardless of the alleged ill-gotten wealth comment of the lawmaker.

Sustainable Living First for Filipinos
Bongbong Marcos said that every Filipino wants to live in a peaceful community. So he is very happy to enact the Human Settlements and Urban Development Act that he advocates. He then adds that President Rodrigo Du30’s term is the time for Filipinos to make a decent living. This is in line with the moves of Senator Nancy Binay who seeks re-election. She emphasizes the crucial role of architecture and design for housing projects. This forges the Filipino identity. Binay notes that architects, urban planners, and designers must not overlook the social dimension of their roles in society. Just like Marcos’ logic that the community must have the essential facilities for sustainable living.
Senator Binay’s Good moves
Binay explains that we must remind urban planners and architects of their social purpose in building “human and inclusive” communities. They must be sustainable and reflect the aspirations of the people. Binay lauds architects and designers who continue to push boundaries. She also taps into the Filipino consciousness. Then, stresses the use of materials that are indigenous. This is in the pursuit of building structures that represent Filipino ideals, and aspirations.
Misquoted by the Mainstream Media?
In a speech recently, President Du30 raises doubts about the ill-gotten wealth accusations against the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The black media propaganda alleges that Marcos has stolen up to $10 billion from state coffers during his two-decade rule. This is actually impossible said Senatorial bet, Larry Gadon. Truly because the country does not have that much money. Mainstream media then quotes Senator Nancy Binay saying that the Supreme Court rulings and the compensation on human rights victims are enough proof on the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcoses. The Philippine President, ultimately doubts about that.
Misleading News on Ill-Gotten Wealth
The news on Binay’s comments creates confusion. This is because she is pro-Du30 administration person. The Senator is apparently a strong supporter of the Marcoses’ projects for the people. Simply because she is a humanitarian herself. In fact, she’s the one who passes a bill that gives way to the Senate election fraud investigation in 2016. This compliments Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo.
Individualism Must be Respected
Former Senator Marcos successfully demonstrates how to respect individualism. Therefore, Binay’s opinion if ever is not a good reason to cut ties. This is contrary to what their enemies want to achieve. The alliance of the Binays and the Marcoses gets stronger than ever. Even the sibling rivalry for the mayoral post only proves that there’s no political dynasty in Makati. Both families face criticisms from their detractors in this regard. Despite each serving government official in the commercial district, Ilocos Norte and elsewhere with the notable political names went through the right process during elections. They are merely the people’s choice.

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.
[VIDEO]: GO KASOSYO Meet & Greet with Atty. Glenn Chong, Doc Willie Ong & Mocha
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.

Atty, Larry Gadon who runs for Senator in the 2019 elections prides himself as a Marcos loyalist. He addresses the ill-gotten wealth propaganda against the Marcoses straight to the point. He answers the ABS-CBN’s Harapan 2019 moderator with a question; How could there be ill-gotten wealth by the late President Ferdinand Marcos when the country did not have money during his time? If only people can analyze that, no one could deny that it’s a very logical question.
[VIDEO]: Gadon rejects ill-gotten wealth charge vs Marcoses
Gadon’s Straight Talking
The lawyer behind the impeachment complaint against the former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno runs for Senator. Atty. Gadon, a member of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan political party is confident that Filipinos will vote for him because they are not stupid. They will vote for me because I am not stupid, he added.
Lashing the Typical Poverty Mentality
Gadon said that if elected, he would focus on bills that would improve the economy and the education system, and help overseas Filipino workers. These are in line with the principles of former President Marcos. Gadon explained that he would do his best to solve the problem of inflation and high power rates by pushing for alternative energy sources. This prompts the moderator to push even harder if there’s a possibility that he gets his campaign funds from the Marcoses which he vehemently denies. Gadon slams such typical poverty mentality insinuation.
Alleged Stolen Wealth is a Myth
Gadon need not explain things when he gives his straight to the point answer. No, there’s no wealth that was stolen. It’s simply because there’s nowhere to steal from, he said. The mainstream media recycles the myth that the late Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos must have stolen such wealth in time for the upcoming election. Their eldest daughter, Imee Marcos also runs for the same position alongside Gadon.
The PCGG estimates the alleged Marcos family’s ill-gotten wealth to be between $5 billion to $10 billion with. “The bulk deposits are allegedly hidden abroad.” The commission recovers over P170 billion of ill-gotten wealth from the Marcoses in the past 30 years. Most of them are already returned to the Marcoses due to lack of evidence according to Gadon. Some of these figures also do not belong to them but to the alleged cronies. A Cojuangco is actually one of these said beneficiaries. The late President Cory Aquino is a Cojuangco. On top of that, now Congresswoman Imelda Marcos accuses the PCGG of stealing from them.
Atrocities by the Aquinos are Greater than Martial Law
The outspoken lawyer also justifies martial law as a necessary step for the President to save the country from communism. He stresses that the fatalities during that time were the results of Joma Sison’s rebellion. Gadon did not fail to mention that human rights violations were even more rampant during the times of the two Aquinos. He reminds the public about the Hacienda Luisita and the Mendiola Massacres ultimately.
