Mayor Isko’s Message to the Youth during Andres Bonifacio Day
To the Youth: Criticize but No Violence
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno urges the youth to speak out but never resort to violence. This is a blow to the party lists like the Makabayan Bloc and Gabriela. Some of their members are identified by the government to be members of the NPA or the country’s insurgents’ group. This also comes after Joma Sison thanked him for his support. However, this is not a crime. According to the 1987 constitution, people are free to express their different interests.
Andres Bonifacio’s Principles
The mayor speaks at the 157th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio. He said that they should emulate Bonifacio’s principles as a way to show love for the country. To criticize the government is okay but violent acts are ot acceptable, he said.
Many of the mayor’s admirers are pushing for him to run as president in the 2022 elections. He can follow the foot prints of President Rodrigo Duterte who was the mayor of Davao before winning the presidency. Nonetheless, he is a supporter of President Duterte and he’s more likely to respect whoever the president endorses for the top position. Besides, he still have to nail down a slot at the Senate – just like before.
Bongbong Marcos is grateful to the invitation of USEC Jun Santiago for inviting him to the highest award of the land night for the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago. President Rodrigo Du30 bestows the Quezon Service Cross award to her recently. Her husband receives it on her behalf. Marcos mesmerizes on the signs of the blinding intellect behind her humor. BBM expresses how he misses his running mate during the 2016 election. Prior to that, he also reminds the youth of the leadership goals that matter for the country.

Only the 6th Recipient
The Quezon Service Cross is unique in that the President nominates Filipino citizens for the award. The Congress approves its conferment. Santiago’s widower, Narciso or Jun, accepts the posthumous award. He thanks the President for it. The first five recipients of the Quezon Service Cross since its creation in 1946 include Emilio Aguinaldo and Carlos P. Romulo. Ramon Magsaysay, Benigno Aquino Jr., and Jesse Robredo follow suit.
Baguio National Conference of the SK
NYC Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer, Undersecretary Ronald Gian Cardema invites Marcos during the recent SK National Conference in Baguio. He reminds the youth that he is the author principal author of the who creates the Philippine Youth Commission that is now the NYC.
Imee Marcos’ Humour
Gov. Imee Marcos showers the young attendees with funny speeches that Bongbong Marcos likens to Vice Ganda’s comedy stunts. The crowd was obviously hysterical, said Marcos. Notes had it that her chance encounter with the latter becomes an issue to some.
Diplomatic Corps’ Consular Ball of Estonia
Marcos also had fun with the Consular Ball of Estonia for the Christmas season. The diplomatic corps’ members attend the event. A rare chance for them to let their hair down without having to deal with the state’s affairs. Afterall, work-life balance is crucial to all.
The VP Protestee also warns the SK leaders to not tolerate dirty elections. That whatever they experience and see in previous elections, they won’t embrace such anomalies found. Marcos certainly imparts his leadership goals to these youths who can lead the country in the future.
