Kinsa si Lini?: Mis Occ surprised they voted for Robredo


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Oroquieta is the capital of the province of Misamis Occidental, Philippines. In its history, the charter was converted into a City after President Ferdinand Marcos signed the conversion on June 25, 1969. They have known the Marcoses eversince and were very grateful with their infrastructure projects and Imelda Marcos’ educational and farming support not only in the city but also in the rest of the Municipality of Misamis Occidental.

As a Binay-Marcos campaigner in many parts of Misamis Occidental namely; Oroquieta, Bato, Plaridel, Sapang Dalaga, Calamba and many more, it’s a common phrase you hear from people; kinsa tuod na si Lini Rubrido? or who again is Leni robredo? So, it’s unacceptable for the people there hearing the news that majority of them voted for Robredo.

So, me Elena Grace Giangan Flores who’s paternal origin came from Misamis Occidental swear over the grave of my grandfather who was a loyal Marcos supporter until death that I am vouching for the authenticity of this report from Manila Times:

Referendum for Marcos’ Burial at Heroes’ Cemetery Under Way

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The Filipinos are again divided when it comes to allowing the late President Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. to be buried in the Heroes’ Cemetery as a soldier who has served his country – not to mention being the president for two long decades – just because his good name was destroyed by media propaganda maneuvered by the political party of his then political rival who used to be his good friend, Ninoy Aquino.

In the United States where incoming Vice President Leni Robredo got majority of votes over rival Bongbong Marcos and son of late president from overseas workers and migrants who retained their Filipino citizenship through the dual policy or mere residency in America, this is not a good news. Some of them who have loved ones buried there as war veterans were so aghast with this development. Little do they know that if their deceased relatives are still alive, they would be so honored to be buried in the same place as the person they looked up to during their prime time.

Outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay, a Human Rights lawyer for martial law victims and an aid of the late Cory Aquino to topple the older Marcos is now making up to his son, Bongbong Marcos. The referendum process was first raieed up by Senator Mirriam Defensor Santiago, the running mate of Senator Marcos during the May 9, 2016 election. Binay, Duterte and Santiago allied to unseat the Liberal party into the top position and they succeeded with Duterte bagging the post – but for the Vice Presidency, Marcos loses to Robredo but the VP race was marred with various cheating allegations accusing Liberal Party of orchestrating such dirty and dishonest poll. However, Duterte will be calling the shot for the referendum.

Will Leni Robredo investigates Jesse’s death now that she’s already in power?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Congresswoman Leni Robredo’s controversial win for the Vice Presidential race was very timely coinciding with her husband, Jesse Robredo’s birthday who died in a questionable plane crash. Perhaps, pro-Lenis took it as good omen – but Marcos loyalists interpreted that as a reminder to push through with the investigation of his death.

As circumstance dictates, it was also a widow in the person of ex President Corazon Aquino who unseated Bongbong Marcos’ father, the late Ferdinand Marcos who ruled the country progressively who’s reputation was destroyed by the late then Senator Benigno Aquino’s media propaganda as he aspired to replace Marcos.

The Filipino people are asking; why didn’t the two Aquinos who became presidents refused to address the said assasination of the older Aquino and really dig down deeper to punish the people behind it? If this question is not acted upon, it will remain a speculation that their own blood killed Ninoy – just to get the sympathy for the widow. In today’s happening, it will be Leni Robredo who is under the microscope by the public as far as the death of her husband is concerned. Is she a poor victim or a willing accomplice?
