A “Special Division of Five Justices” was formed after two of the original members of the 5th Division agreed to allow the former senator to post bail. These are Justices Maria Theresa Mendoza-Arcega and Reynaldo Cruz. Justice Rafael Lagos issued a dissenting opinion. He thinks that Estrada should stay in prison because of the strong evidence. Justices Zaldy Trespeses and Lorifel Pahimna were added to resolve the matter. Trespeses had cast his vote against former Senator, Jinggoy Estrada. With the vote at 2-2, the “swing vote” belongs to Pahimna. She is an appointee of President Du30 who would cast her vote this week to either grant his provisional freedom or not.

The three justices are all appointees of former president Benigno Aquino 3rd. Cruz and Arcega are also said to be very close to Aquino’s executive secretary, Paquito Ochoa. Because of the 2-1 voting, Justices Trespeses, and Pahimna were added to the Sandiganbayan Special 5th Division. This is to finally come up with an official ruling to allow Estrada to bail or not.
Justice Trespeses was the senior lawyer and staff of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. Justice Pahimna is formerly a judge in Taguig City. She is the latest appointee of President Rodrigo Du30 to the Sandiganbayan. Since the existing votes account to 2 all already, Pahimna’s vote is the determining factor of the fate of the actor turned Senator politician.
Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang expresses her fear that bail for Estrada might affect the plunder case against former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile and aide Jessica Lucila “Gigi” Reyes. It is pending before her 3rd Division. It might also “open the floodgates” for the release of former Senator Bong Revilla. He is also in jail for pork barrel misuse.
Not the Main Plunderer
Estrada’s lawyers argue that the charge sheet failed to allege and identify the senator as the main plunderer. There was no proof that he acquired ill-gotten wealth of at least P50 million, they said. That is the threshold amount for plunder. The defense also referred to last year’s Supreme Court ruling that dismissed for lack of evidence the plunder case filed against the former president and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. This is in connection with the alleged misuse of Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office funds during her presidency. That decision led to Arroyo’s freedom.
Bongbong Marcos said that he now prepares for the recount of votes in connection with his electoral protest to the 2016 vice presidential election. Leni Robredo claims her victory despite his protest on the anomalous hairline margin. Marcos is confident that the discrepancy can easily be wiped out through a recount that can be done in one and a half month.

Organizing the Election Recount Revisors
Bongbong Marcos said; “I have started organizing the revisors, or those who will open the ballot boxes and count the votes,” said Marcos during the Marcos 100 Forum at Mariano Marcos State University.
Action of the Supreme Court
The Supreme Court that acts as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal also prepares the gymnasium at the SC compound. This is where the recount will be conducted, Marcos added. There are also two other venues in the SC grounds that can serve as storage places for the ballot boxes and election paraphernalia.
Recount Amidst Propaganda
It can be observed that massive media propaganda from both the pro and anti-administration factions are ongoing. Nevertheless, Marcos concentrates on the recount despite Robredo’s continues attack on his father’s legacy as his family celebrates the fallen President’s 100th birth anniversary.
Over in Less than Two Months
Marcos said that once the recount begins, it would be over in one and a half months. News on the truth about the COMELEC Chair and the wealth for humanity favor Marcos greatly. Not to mention President Du30’s utmost support. This triggers the LP to bombard the current President with various allegations just like what they did during the Marcos regime. However, they tend to forget that they are not anymore in power. Their dirty tricks before can easily fail now.
The Marcos loyalists are hopeful that the realization of the late Ferdinand Marcos’ prophecy is about to happen in the near future. His daughter, Imee Marcos reveals; “When we were all in tears and everyone said, ‘The end is nigh, it is finished, we are dead and doomed’, he said ‘No, children. To my family and everyone, history is not done with me yet’.”

Corruption Allegation in History was a Lie
Marcos was accused of ill-gotten wealth in billions of dollars from state coffers. Despite the government’s inability to have that much money. The anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International in 2004 named him the second most corrupt leader of all time, next to Indonesian dictator Suharto. However, no member of the Marcos clan has ever gone to prison.
Stunning Political Comeback
His son and namesake, Bongbong Marcos narrowly lost the vice presidential election in 2016. His widow Imelda Marcos sits in the House of Representatives. Daughter Imee Marcos is governor at Ilocos Norte. President Du30, a family friend, says Marcos is the country’s best-ever president. He stuns the nation last November to allow Marcos’ remains at the national “Heroes’ Cemetery.” This is despite the anti-Marcos outcry.
Wealth of Humanity Handover
Du30 also said that he considers a Marcos family proposal to start to hand over the wealth of humanity to the government. He even suggests for them to seek for immunity from prosecution in return. This proves that the President is trustworthy enough who serves for the good of the country.
True History is from FM to FM
Bongbong Marcos is definitely set for the Vice Presidency. That analysis can come out from recent developments. It is just a matter of time. Once again, another prophecy of the late President Marcos is about to happen. Ferdinand Marcos’ history just starts with him but will continue with Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. Remember that it is Du30’s hope to resign once the younger Marcos becomes his VP. The country might not only have a new VP but it is likely to have a new President.
Bongbong Marcos said it himself that he is very lucky to be a Marcos. He thinks that the Philippines would have been a better country had it not been for the Edsa event in 1986. He talks confidently about his political strategies and his father’s legacy because he knows his father’s plan for the Philippines. This includes the wealth for humanity and how it can be used for the good of the people. It is highly secured by their patriarch that prevented looters from gaining access to it.

A Wealth Keeper than a Dictator
The Marcos name remained one of his strongest assets of Bongbong Marcos. He has nothing to apologize for as far as the presidential stint of his father is concerned. His family’s remarkable political resurrection has nothing to do with wanting money or power. They have a mission to reinstate the conditions planned by the late President for his beloved country. He was not a dictator as what detractors insist upon. He just wanted the best for his people.
Detractors were Rewriting History
Since the late Marcos was toppled in 1986. So much lies were thrown by the media to the world. However, the truth always prevails. The three-decade wait is already very long for justice to finally materialize. The family is indeed set to make a difference. Not just in the country but also to the world. History will correct itself as the mysteries unfold.
He Knows his Father’s Plan
The son of the greatest President of the country does not only possess his remarkable qualities. He has gained wisdom over the course of time. His political moves based on the sentiments of the public are very democratic. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. For as long as it’s the right time. He announced that he knows his father’s plan for a progressive Philipines and it is bound to happen under his leadership.
Crucial to Go Back to Power
President Du30′ support, the wealth for humanity, and his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo are correlated with each other. These are all complimenting his return to power. When one is destined to lead, no one can block – even the Liberal Party. His alliance would back him up until the end. It is crucial that Ferdinand Marcos goes back to power for the Will and Testament’s manifestation.
Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Rueda Acosta denies Senator Risa Hontiveros’ statement that PAO said there are “patterns” in the killings. Acosta clarifies that the similarities in teenager killings actually discredit the police force. They are all children of OFWs, good looking, and have stores in front of their house. It is likely the works of the enemies of the government who are out to destroy the President’s drug war.

The President’s Promise
POLICE officers involved in the slaying of teenagers in Caloocan City will be held accountable if results of the investigation will prove that they commit wrongdoing, President Rodrigo Duterte assured Wednesday. “I really said we will protect the soldiers and policemen. No doubt [about that] but always, there has to be the element of the performance of duty and you do not kill defenseless persons,” Duterte said.
No Order to Kill
“I really said we will protect the soldiers and policemen. No doubt about that but always, there has to be the element of the performance of duty and you do not kill defenseless persons,” Duterte said. “I’m sorry but I will pursue the case against the police and [if] need be, they will go to jail. I did not order to kill a child or an adult, and even the enemy on bended knees. That’s not the norm or the rule of democracy,” he added.
Acosta cites the many cases PAO handles that defend various men and women still serving jail sentences. They include men in uniform whose cases are either ongoing or disputed. She begs in tears to have pity on the hard working police officers who are pre-judged. The PAO Chief specifically calls on Hontiveros to refrain from making accusations.
Out to Destroy the Du30 Administration
It is evident that the “yellow” faction follows a familiar process to destroy their political enemies since the Marcos regime. As what Atty. Madrid said on Trillanes who just spews propaganda to get back at the President. The out-of-tune Senator wants to strip Paolo Duterte in public to see his Tattoo to prove his alleged TRIAD affiliation. This is for not choosing him as his running mate in the 2016 presidential elections. Hontiveros who has been anti-Marcos is also critical to the current administration for favoring the Marcoses. The public asks; Does the LP mastermind the killings?
