Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile said that the trouble with the country starts with influencers’ sense of entitlement. They use the word “people” to make the public believe that their idea is the Filipinos’ will. No one can tell Enrile that he revises the martial law history in favor of Bongbong Marcos’ upcoming leadership. Enrile is not only present during martial law. He’s also its orchestrator. No government detractors would want to answer his questions. They would find themselves corrected as the election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo leans towards Marcos’ favor.

Revisionism by the Oligarchs
The late President Ferdinand Marcos’ image went down to the drain because of the black media propaganda against him by his political enemies. They carry this out through their network of oligarchs owning major businesses including media platforms.
Enrile’s Questions about the Late President Marcos
Enrile advises people who have doubts about Marcos because of the negativity around to answer his basic questions: 1. Who introduces democratic education to all Filipinos? 2. Who initiates the irrigation project for farmers? 3. Who brings rural electrification all throughout the country? 4. Who starts the nuclear power plant for cheaper energy sources? In his 51 years of political career, Enrile sure has a lot more questions to as if someone from the opposition dares to have a debate with him.
Faking his Ambush?
It’s true that the former Senator denied that he was ambushed. The media wants to project that he faked his own ambush. The truth is, no need to create stories that could have trigger the martial law declaration at that time. It is so because when the alleged incident happened, martial law is already in effect. That’s the simple truth as per Enrile.
Bongbong Marcos’ Leadership
As soon as Bongbong Marcos becomes Vice President, he is only a step away from the presidency. As a man of his word, it is likely that President Rodrigo Duterte would step down for him. In fact, he’s looking forward to doing that pretty soon. He has more worthwhile plans to do with his grandchildren when that happens. Enrile said that if that is the choice of the people as per the manual recount results, then be it.
Everything is now coming together for the Marcoses. Aside from the changing Senate leadership from Senator Koko Pimentel to Tito Sotto, the approval of the House Bill 7376 is on its way. This is the proposed “Office of the Solicitor General Charter” to abolish the PCGG that is already on its final reading. Gov. Imee Marcos welcomes the development because this could end the wealth chase against her family. It is already “long overdue,” she said. She claims that the agency is supposed to exist only for few years and not thirty years.

End of the Hidden Wealth Chase by the PCGG
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos welcomes the House of Representatives’ approval of a bill that abolishes the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG). It is the agency tasked to recover the alleged hidden wealth of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. It turned out that the Senate still has to prioritize tracing the gold certificates that his widow pleaded long time ago to start its recovery for humanity. President Rodrigo Duterte already ordered the Congress to follow-up on this matter.
Two in One
The bill not only abolishes the PCGG that sequesters Marcos’ wealth. It also merges the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel with a stronger Office of the Solicitor General. Solgen Jose Calida is the one who filed the Quo Warranto petition of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno of the Supreme Court. That ousted her after being voted out by the majority of her own justices. The same magistrates that made the burial of former President Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery possible.
One Year is Overdue
A counterpart bill from the Senate needs to be passed for the measure to be forwarded for bicameral consultations. A consolidated bill must then be finalized. Aquino’s law states that the PCGG should only last for a year. Why it lasted for more than 30 years is really a mystery, explained the lady governor. The question is, where is the wealth that PCGG allegedly recovered?
Contrary to Marcos’ claims, there is no mention of the supposed one-year existence only of the PCGG in the executive order of the late president Corazon Aquino which created the agency, according to pro-LP media. Regardless of the debate, it cannot be denied that pro-Marcos lawmakers and appointees are taking their place. Sotto for one who is the upcoming Senate President revealed some 2016 election anomalies that benefit Vice President Leni Robredo.
The possibility to be the next target for ouster is not strange for Vice President Leni Robredo. Such scenario is always possible, according to her. However, she should know that it does not serve the purpose of his rival, Bongbong Marcos. The President wants Marcos to be next in line to the presidency. Removing her as such won’t install the latter to the post. He must win the election protest to be legible as Vice President as per the constitution.

Election Protest is More Likely
Professor Ranjit Rye explains during an interview at Tutok Tulfo why the quo warranto must not be applied to Vice President Leni Robredo’s case. He said that since Bongbong Marcos’ protest is already ongoing, the said remedy is not anymore necessary. The series of anomalies found during the recount may not automatically make Bongbong Marcos Vice President. The Supreme Court has to make the declaration on the real winner.
Supreme Court CJ Sereno’s Ouster is Favorable to Marcos
The Supreme Court ousts Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno over her failure to meet the “integrity test” of her position despite earlier warnings. Voting 8-6 in a special en banc session declares void Sereno’s appointment as chief justice. Those who are in favor of the ouster are Associate Justices Noel Tijam, Teresita De Castro, Lucas Bersamin, Francis Jardeleza, Samuel Martires, Andres Reyes Jr. and Alexander Gesmundo. They also made the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery. Needless to say, they are pro-Marcos. Therefore, Bongbong Marcos can be VP if the trend continues.
Conflict in the Senate
Senator Risa Hontiveros urges her colleagues to “cross party lines and unite to defend the integrity of the Senate. This is after the removal of Sereno.” Hontiveros said that the following senators give their support to the anti-quo warranto resolution: Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon, Francis Pangilinan, Antonio Trillanes IV, Leila de Lima, Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV, Francis Escudero, Sherwin Gatchalian, Joel Villanueva, Grace Poe, and Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara.
Balancing Act in the Supreme Court
Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio is the acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Marcos criticizes most of his resolutions that delay his election protest against Robredo. However, the President is yet to appoint Sereno’s replacement. The Filipino leader is strategic enough not to appoint a CJ who is against his plans.
Filipinos via social media criticise The New York Times article entitled “Philippines’ Top Judge Took On Duterte. Now, She’s Out.” It gives unfounded opinions in line with Liberalism’s black media propaganda against popular leaders like the country’s President Rodrigo Duterte and the late Ferdinand Marcos. The highest court votes out its chief justice recently. It removes a fierce critic of the President and his brutal war against drugs. However, the comment “which has left thousands dead” can give a wrong perception to the reading public.
Youtube Video by PRRD News [VIDEO]: The Supreme Court voted to oust Maria Lourdes Sereno as Chief Justice, its spokesperson Ted Te said.
Voting 8-6, the Supreme Court justices out Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. It approves a petition by Solicitor General Jose Calida that questions the validity of her appointment. The ground that clearly disqualifies her. Not filing the SALN that discloses her wealth is unconstitutional.
Sereno is a constant irritant along with other Liberal Party members like the questionable Vice President Leni Robredo. They publicize the alleged increasingly autocratic rule of Duterte even if they are the ones doing undemocratic actions. They question the validity of the President’s list of public officials who are drug suspects. The opposition also blocks his declaration of martial law in the southern Philippines. However, the majority of the people hail Duterte for drastically lowering the crime rate. The martial law also made Marawi very peaceful now.
Show of Force
Only hundreds gather on the streets to protest what they called a “blatant ploy” by Duterte to speculatively wrest power from the judiciary and figuratively undermine the independence of the courts. On the other hand, millions demonstrate their support to the Duterte administration especially to his chosen successor, Bongbong Marcos. In fact, the INC breaks the record of forming the longest human sentence recently. They are asking where their vote went for Marcos.
LP’s Dictatorship using the Media
The Liberal Party should know that when the rights of Filipinos are not respected, they know where to go – their government. In the digital era, the voice of the people cannot be claimed anymore by the power-hungry Liberals. They can express individually via social media. One can easily measure their intensity through Google Analytics. The New York Times is certainly biased if their only source is LP’s Senator Risa Hontiveros. Take it from CNN Philippines.
The 8-6 special en banc session votes at the Supreme Court declares Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s appointment void. SC spokesperson Theodore Te quotes the dispositive of the decision, “Wherefore, the Petition for Quo Warranto is granted,” he said. The beleaguered CJ is ousted. In another development, the people await Bongbong Marcos’ declaration as Vice President.

Sereno is Disqualified
“Respondent [Sereno] is found disqualified from and is hereby adjudged guilty of unlawfully holding and exercising the Office of the Chief Justice. Accordingly, Sereno is ousted and excluded therefrom,” Te added.
The ruling is immediately executory. Those who voted in favor of the ouster were Associate Justices Noel Tijam, Teresita De Castro, Lucas Bersamin, Francis Jardeleza, Samuel Martires, Andres Reyes Jr. and Alexander Gesmundo.
Sol-Gen Calida’s Winning Move
The Supreme Court voted 8-6, granting the quo warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida, which questioned the qualification of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to serve as the country’s top magistrate.
Bongbong Marcos’ Rise
The dissenting votes were Associate Justices Estela Bernabe, Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa, Presbitero Jose Velasco Jr., Mariano Del Castillo, Marvic Leonen, Antonio Carpio. Bernabe is currently out of the country but left a vote against the quo warranto. The camp of Sereno already said that they will appeal the ruling. Senior Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio as Acting Chief Justice. Despite the opposition’s force, it is evident that the administration stalwarts do not take their enemies sitting down. Therefore, it is just a matter of public announcement that the Philippines already has a new Vice President! This is just the beginning of the prophecy.
