Bongbong Marcos does not take the recount for his election protest sitting down. He prepares his team of experts to cover developments, enhance his social media presence, and most of all, speaks his mind out when asked directly. As per the video coverage, he confirms vehemently the ultimate goal of the delaying tactics imposed by VP Leni Robredo’s Camp. Her lawyer tries to influence him to run for Senator in 2019. He firmly declined, to their dismay because he’s already the Vice President, he said.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos discloses that Robredo’s lawyer pushes him to run for Senator in 2019. This is his reply.

Delaying Tactics

The electoral protest against Robredo involves the unending filing of motions for reconsideration for every move of the Marcos Camp. Robredo, in fact, filed a motion for reconsideration even for the recount. She claimed that the allegations made by Marcos were not enough to open ballot boxes. Marcos’ spokesman, Atty. Vic Rodriguez disputes this by saying that if Robredo really has nothing to hide, she should not resort to delaying tactics. She must allow the proceedings to continue if she is not guilty, Rodriguez added.

Justice Caguioa’s Hand

Marcos slams Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa who handles his election protest for his injustices. He cites paying the Tribunal P7 million upfront to decrypt the ballots but he is still waiting for its progress. Whereas, it grants Robredo’s access to their soft copies as soon as she files a motion. The cost is still running for ink, paper, and others. The PET deprives Marcos of the documents that the tribunal required him to pay “only to grant them to Robredo for free.” Besides, Marcos is the one who moved for the decryption and Robredo even opposed it

Push from Robredo’s Lawyer

Marcos discloses earlier that Robredo’s legal counsel, Romulo Macalintal suggests that he should run for Senator in 2019. He is surely the number one, Macalintal added. However, Marcos knows that the protest will be rendered moot and academic if he does so. It shows his disinterest in the case.

Bongbong Marcos’ Firm Reply

Marcos is now simply reclaiming the seat that is taken away from him through fraudulent means. However, unfavorably to them, Marcos vowed to fight until the very end. He knows that he is the rightful Vice President and he is about to unveil how he was cheated.

Bongbong Marcos was first rumored to be the next DILG Secretary. Now, some supporters floated the idea via social media that the president’s son, Paulo Du30 can be a possible appointee for the post. However, the only involvement Paolo has now with the DILG is regarding his resignation as Vice Mayor of Davao. DILG officer in charge Catalino Cuy said that his move is a first from a highly urbanized city. Nevertheless, he follows the correct process and it is effective within 15 working days. This is if President Du30 won’t act on it. The younger Du30, however, files a civil case against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV with brother-in-law, Atty. Manases Carpio.

Civil Case against Senator Trillanes

The President’s eldest son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Dut30, and son-in-law Manases Carpio, recently filed a civil case against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV. This is for linking them to the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of shabu at the Bureau of Customs in May. The case lands under the Davao City Regional Trial Court Branch 15 under Judge Mario Duaves.

A Senator Rumor-Monger

“Senator Trillanes imputes malice in saying that my appearance before the Bureau of Customs is because of smuggling. He is just a desperate rumor-monger who happens to be a senator,” said Carpio. Trillanes acted cool on this development. “It’s nothing but another harassment suit because our corrupt and co-opted justice system has become the refuge of the Duterte scoundrels,” the cheap-talking Senator said.

Davao Mayor Retaliates

Mayor Sara, the sister of Paolo retaliates by calling Senator Trillanes “Mema” or cheap talker. Trillanes assertion that her brother steps down to prevent the Ombudsman from investigating him is a hoax. “I don’t think the Ombudsman’s probe stops just because Paolo resigns. It doesn’t work that way,” she said. She happens to be a lawyer.

Big Du30 Supporter

Bongbong Marcos is not in the limelight during the holidays. His team needs to prepare for the recount in February 2018. He is, nonetheless, visible in the different important activities that the Du30s are officiating. Marcos seems like the first family’s biggest support. He said that he won’t say no to any position that the President would offer him. But the Filipino leader wants him to concentrate on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo.

Bongbong Marcos: Supreme Court Commits Grave Error

welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos asks the Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal to reconsider its decision to provide VP Leni Robredo with the decrypted copies of the documents for his pilot provinces. Marcos said that he paid all the expenses. Robredo must also shoulder some expenses for the process if she wants them. He calls it a grave error on the part of the SC. Her lawyer, Romulo Macalintal commented that if Marcos wants to resolve the electoral protest faster, he should not have filed a motion on this.

[VIDEO]: PET committed a grave error in allowing Robredo to secure copies of ballot images said, Bongbong Marcos.

Hefty Pay

Marcos who for the cost of decryption and printing of ballot images from the pilot provinces that amounts to P2,974,075. “With all due respect, Robredo did not contribute any share in the expenses and supplies for this undertaking. It is unfair, unjust and inequitable that PET allows her to obtain soft copies of the decrypted images of the ballots, election returns, audit logs and other relevant documents for the pilot protest,” the motion stated.

Justification to the Move of the Supreme Court

Macalintal in response to Marcos said to him that he should avoid filing motions that only lengthen the proceedings. “By doing this, they have no one to blame but themselves for any delay,” he said in a statement. It looks like he found an opportunity to blame to Marcos the many delays his camp caused.

Pay First

Macalintal assures Marcos’ camp that Robredo gives them copies of reports if she needs to ask for decryption. The question is, can they afford it? As per record, their 7 Million Pesos balance for her counter-protest is not yet paid. Marcos only has to show lost votes that can cover her 263,473 lead. That can come very handy during the February 2018 recount.

A Grave Error by the Supreme Court

Despite the somewhat clear injustice done by the Supreme Court at this point, Marcos is still careful with his words. He never accuses the PET of any manipulation even if most people assume it. It is evident that his confidence in the justice system is still high. Sometimes, they seem to let Robredo win in some aspects of the protest to perhaps justify their main and final decision.

De Lima Influences ICC to Bring Du30 Down before Bongbong Marcos becomes VP


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores
Bongbong Marcos said it before that the destabilizers of the Du30 administration would only stop to attack the President when he becomes Vice President. Those who are anti-Du30 just can’t stand him as his successor. This pronouncement resurfaces after Presidential spokesman Atty. Harry Roque urges the ICC to not allow it as the venue for political destabilization efforts. Jailed Senator Leila de Lima calls on it to start its preliminary investigations on EJKs.

[VIDEO]:  Duterte spokesman Harry Roque to ICC: don’t be a venue for political destabilization.

ICC is Not a Court of First Recourse

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque refutes Senator Leila de Lima’s claims that the government is unable to probe alleged extrajudicial killings (EJKs).  “The point is, the ICC is never a court of first recourse. People with complaints against extralegal killings must file before the Philippine courts,” Roque, who also a human rights lawyer stressed.

De Lima’s No-Brainer or No-Brain Call?

De Lima, in a strongly urges the ICC to start preliminary investigations on alleged extra killings in the country. She accuses the President of adopting a policy killing Filipinos suspected of drug use and peddling. “It’s a no-brainer. How can the ICC expect the Du30 Administration to take jurisdiction over the prosecution of EJK crimes? The President already admits that it is the very policy of his administration to kill Filipinos,” De Lima added.

Presidential Speech that Triggers De Lima

The detained senator refers to the President’s speech in Pampanga on December 7. Du30 reiterates on his drug war policy. Saying that it remains “until the dying days of his presidency or his life.” “We do not enjoy killing our own kind. It is not a good policy, but we are besieged.  That is something that is very terrible,” Duterte said of his drug war. “Four million is four million addicts, 42 percent of the total barangay are contaminated with shabu,” the President lamented on its extremity.

Cannot Step in if there’s No Case in Local Court

The Philippines is a party to the Rome Statute of the ICC. Under the statute, the state is given the primary jurisdiction to try cases. The ICC only steps in when the concerned state fails to prosecute an international crime such as genocide or other crimes against humanity. Roque, however, insists that there is no unwillingness on the side of the government to probe the killings, citing cases in the Supreme Court. De Limas’s actions are allegedly part of his party’s aim to dethrone Du30 for their Liberal bet to take over before Bongbong Marcos proves that her party cheated during the 2016 elections. The recount for Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo starts in February 2018.

Bongbong Marcos Clarifies Recount Estimate Only After SC Decides on the Date


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos urges the Supreme Court once again to treat the recount on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo as important as an election. He awaits since September the date that the PET has to set. Marcos also clarifies in an interview that his previous estimate on the manual count which is up to 2 to 3 months starts only from the SC’s official date if it is undertaken promptly.

Video by; Malayang Magpahayag Online News

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos explains the 3 courses of actions in the electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo and the 2 to 3 months time frame for the recount.

Estimate Clarification on Recount

In an interview, Marcos reiterates that his 2 to 3 months estimate is applicable only from the official recount date that the Supreme Court still has to decide on. He expects it on 50 tables, that should be done within two months. The Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET already has a team to locate and retrieve ballot boxes from the contested areas. However, the actual retrieval can’t be done by COMELEC yet due to 2 other protests. One of which is the Cebu mayoral race.

Cebu Recount Justify the Discrepancy Trend

Robredo’s victory only has a slim margin of 263,473 votes over Marcos. The Protestant’s camp wants the PET to recount first the ballot boxes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. Once a discrepancy is noted in these pilot areas, a decision to continue or not can be drawn for the conclusion. In fact, anomalies are already seen in the Cebu manual count for Michael Rama’s electoral protest against the incumbent mayor. They are confident more than ever that in the 3 pilot provinces alone, Marcos can already have around one million votes lead.

Reaction from Robredo’s Camp

Atty Bernadette Sardillo argues that 3 months is too short to get this done and over with. That span of time is almost over already since the High Court pronounces that it is in the Tribunal’s best interest to give Marcos’ electoral protest a speedy treatment. However, it asks patience because this is one case that is unique among the previous protests.

SC on Holiday Mood Already

Inquiries on the recount are now only through social media. Since Christmas is fast approaching, government officials tend to stay away from their regular mandate. By now, they are probably switching to the planning of holiday events. The Marcos camp can’t do anything much but wait for what the New Year can bring on their case.
