Bongbong Marcos: Martial Law is Necessary to Control Insurgents

The namesake and son of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos, Bongbong Marcos backs the president by saying that the only way to control insurgents in Mindanao is to declare martial law. This is the same as the idealism of his father. The older Marcos is often called a dictator even if he’s a leader who deliberately follows the constitution.

Right Move in Mindanao

Marcos observes in the last 24 hours that the terror attacks are not just simply terrorism movements. They intend to destabilise the government. There seems to be a higher hierarchy that prompt the rebels in connivance with ISIS to spread terror recently in Marawi. The president does not take this lightly for sure.

Destabilisation Efforts

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said troops raided the hideout of a top terrorist suspect in Marawi that sparks a gunbattle. That prompted the militants to call for reinforcements from an allied group, the Maute. He said dozens of gunmen occupy the city hall. A hospital, a jail and a Catholic church are burned. A college and some houses are under attack. Two soldiers and a police officer are killed. 12 others are wounded.

Muslim Extremists

Du30 immediately left Moscow to deal with a crisis in the Philippines.  Muslim extremist start the siege on a city. Militants burned buildings overnight and are feared to have taken hostages. They are noted to do such things when their demands are not met by the administration.


Duterte declares martial rule for 60 days in the entire southern Mindanao region. The military is under a strict order to crush Muslim extremists. These insurgents align themselves with the Islamic State group. Martial law could be extended for a year depending on how long the problem persists. It can go on indefinitely if the government has difficulty in establishing control over these lawless people.

The President’s Security: Why Bongbong Marcos? Nobody Believes in Robredo


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As congress threatens Vice President Leni Robredo with impeachment in August, Bongbong Marcos can take her place only if he wins his electoral protest against her. However, it can’t be denied that he is the president’s choice as his successor. This has got nothing to do with alleged paying back rumors. The president discloses it bluntly why Leni Robredo cannot handle the country’s security problems.

Marcos’ Chance

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said that if Robredo is removed from office through an impeachment in the House of Representatives Marcos can claim the post only after receiving the favorable resolution from PET. However, if that is not the case Senate President Aquilino Pimentel and House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez are next in line.

Appointment Scenario

The Constitution, however, also gives the President the power to nominate a replacement for a vacant vice presidential post from among members of the Senate and House, subject to approval of a majority of Congress voting separately. If Marcos runs again during the 2019 senatorial race and wins, he can be appointed as VP if the post is vacant following Robredo’s successful impeachment.

Similar Case

This is the case when former senator Teofisto Guingona Jr.. He was appointed vice president in 2001 when Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo assumed the presidency after the EDSA 2 people power revolution ousted former president Joseph Estrada on plunder charges.

Presidential Security

It is a popular statement of Marcos that the only way the president can be secured from his enemies is by making him Vice President. People are aware that they have the same detractors, the Liberal Party. Its members are doing everything to block Marcos from the Vice Presidency to not allow this to happen. Du30 is safe because they would hate the namesake’s ascension to the highest post of the land.

Know Why TIME Can Make or Break Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It is very important of the Supreme Court to speed up the elections protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo for the Vice Presidency because of the upcoming senate election in 2019. To run for the senate again can impact Marcos’ protest in a big way. Its dismissal is at stake.

Youtube video from; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Political analyst Ramon Casiple shares his thoughts on the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo.

Senatorial Election

Political analyst Ramon Casiple says Bongbong Marcos is yet to decide whether he’ll run for senator in 2019. Another consideration is to continue with his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Ramon Casiple, chairman of the Consortium on Electoral Reforms said that the speed of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) resolution of the case can make it or break it for Marcos.

Essence of Time

As per records in history, Casiple estimates that Marcos’ protest “will reach the 2019 senatorial elections.” “Marcos would have to decide to go for it or not.  “The possibility of Marcos being proclaimed Vice President is not due to the content or the substance of the protest. The most important factor is time. They can end the whole process if he runs for the senate or continues the recount.

Average Time

The PET starts the preliminary conference on June 21, 2017. The average of previous electoral protests for PET to resolve lasts for four years. Therefore, the senatorial race can decide Marcos’ fate for the electoral protest if he wants another term as senator. However, since he is geared up for the presidency, Robredo’s camp can only hope that for him to vie for a seat in the senate again.


Should Marcos ends up running for the senatorial race, the electoral protest will be moot and academic. In most cases, the PET just drop the case because of lack of interest. That is the reality that the Marcos camp is struggling upon. This is the reason why it is important for them to block every delaying tactics of Robredo’s camp.Marcos camp’s proposal to have 3 hearing commissioners, one for each cause of action in his electoral protest is a strategy to resolve the protest in less than two years.

Where Bongbong Marcos Stands in the Election Protest against Leni Robredo


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos came close to being elected vice president in the 2016 election. That could have made him the official successor to Du30 if he chose to abdicate. It is a scenario that the president himself raised as a possibility. But teh chance is automatically eliminated because of his defeat in the VP race. He is disputing Leni Robredo through an electoral protest. The supreme court is also faced with various motions to expedite the case.

Youtube video from; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Marcos said that all voters have the right to know where their votes went in the 2016 vice presidential election.

Public Interest

“Public interest demands,” he told the Court, that it resolve his protest “with dispatch, to determine once and for all the genuine choice of the electorate . . . it is neither fair nor just to keep in office for an uncertain period one whose right to it is under suspicion.” Te urgency here is clear as it is very obvious that Leni Robredo’s camp is holding on to their delaying tactics in every chance they can possibly have.

Detractors’ Claim

Detractors say that Bongbong Marcos can’t wait. It is also wrong to claim that he is impatient or not used to losing. He might be the apple of everyone’s eye during his father’s time but it is evident that he learned lots of positive values from their intense experience. Life in exile is not at all short and comfortable for the family that only desire for the nation’s progress.

Never Convicted

Marcos was back in the country as a senator. His widowed mother and two sisters also returned to power and influential society. Former first lady Imelda is now in Congress. His older sister Imee is the governor of their province. The younger sister Irene maintains being the patroness of the arts. Anti-Marcos politicians complained that no one of them spent a day in jail. that only proves that the murder and plunder allegations were all fabricated by their enemies.

Election Fraud was Clear

Anomalous activities that favored Leni Robredo during the 2016 election were clear, said Marcos. This is the reason why he decides to file the electoral protest despite its high cost. The people have the right to know where their votes went. There might be a big force that would want him to be the presiden’t successor soon. There is always the right time for it. If his family can wait more than 3 decades of being attacked by the yellow people’s black media propaganda, 2022 is not that far.

Leni Robredo is Going Broke but the Election Protest of Bongbong Marcos is Just about to Start


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Vice President in question has guessed her plight that she will be buried in debts due to Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against her. in fact, according to her newly released SALN, she’s getting broke. The unfortunate thing for her is, the preliminary conference for the protest is just set in motion on June 21. What could this mean for her?

[VIDEO]: NTG: Net worth ni VP Robredo bumaba ng mahigit P2M, ayon sa SALN

Election Protest Update

Robredo’s legal counsel discloses that a portion of the money for the P8 million initial deposit required by the Supreme court came from her personal funds. The rest of the fee was loaned from the relatives of her late husband Sec. Jesse Robredo. They are Vicente Hao Chin, Pablito Chua, and Rafael Bundoc.

Less Cash on Hand

The VP declared less cash on hand or in her bank accounts. In her SALN last June 30, she reported to possess ₱11,115,138 in cash, but in her SALN from December 2016, only ₱8,940,111 is left. Around ₱2.18-million decrease in her total assets is recorded. As the Liberal Party bet, her teammates would for sure come to her aid to ultimately block the return of a Marcos to the executive office.

Lack of Charisma

The second leader might be the highest elected  Liberal Party member but history seems to repeat itself. She can be compared to Mar Roxas, the party’s bet for president in 2016 who lacks charisma. He’s being outsmarted by the popular then mayor of Davao, Du30. In the current situation, Bongbong Marcos is far more charismatic than Robredo. This is probably why the pro-LB media are now working full time to discredit the Marcos regime once more.

Bad Situation

It is obvious that it is not looking good for Robredo these days. Every time she attempts to boost her popularity, it immediately pulls her down instead. Her new weekly radio show just made her look like too desperate in promoting herself. LP knows very well that without charisma, they can never get public sympathy. The question is, will they pour in more money for her to surpass Marcos’ challenge once more?
