Psychic Gurmeet Kals who predicts that Bongbong Marcos’s VP recount victory brings prosperity to the country, warns of an upcoming nuclear war. War of words ignites World War 3. That obviously refers to the exchanges of words between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un.

Psychic Gurmeet Sees Devastating Effects of Nuclear War
Gurmeet sees the nuclear launching strongly from a deserted place. Images of flying people from burning skyscrapers and fire bricks that signify the sun are in his vision. It feels like the end that can last for two and a half months. Survivors take its toll for seven years and six months. Then, a modern era rises after 21 years of rebuilding, he publishes.
The prediction of Nostradamus about the nuclear war also mentions the war of words like Gurmeet’s and the battle of powerful countries. However, China, Russia, and North Korea are not any more closely knit to each other against the Americans. The Chinese already have enough of Pyongyang that they closed the China-North Korea friendship bridge. Russia is also furious of the latter because their nuclear testing ground is very near the Russian border.
The Philippines in a Different Light
Other members of the Marcos family aside from Bongbong are about to join the political ladder as predicted by Gurmeet. The Philippines may be seen in a different light at this time. Governor Imee Marcos of Ilocos Norte is a prominent bet. She may run for Senator in 2019. President Du30 always have a high regard for her. Both Bongbong and Imee were in the President’s delegation to China. It was to strengthen bilateral relations with them. The same as during their father’s era. China plays a crucial part in taming North Korea as it’s main energy supplier. The Philippines actually balances the US-China relations for neutrality over North Korea.
Prepare for Nuclear War
Japan is currently the subject of North Korea’s fury as the US’s closest ally. North Korea has fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile that flew over Hokkaido twice before landing in the northern Pacific Ocean. The US, South Korea, and Japan started joint exercises to track missiles from North Korea. This follows the nuclear-armed Pyongyang’s longest-range test launch to date. The trilateral drill comes less than two weeks after Pyongyang test-fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile or ICBM. North Korea declares that it achieves nuclear statehood, escalating global alarm over its weapons push. America warns the world to prepare.
The world made a wrong judgment on the Marcoses because of their biased interpretation of the Filipino lifestyle. Even the local’s typical love for music and dancing were given negative meanings. Those were associated with extravagance. While poor people were allegedly living on trash. Little do they know that people in the largest garbage area, Smokey Mountain, occasionally organizes karaoke marathon and street dancing. That’s just how people in the Philippines have fun. Bongbong Marcos is always proud of this unique culture as he announces in his speeches. While his sister Governor Imee Marcos would just dance the night away.

Love of Music
A foreign media once describes former First Lady and now Congresswoman Imelda Marcos’ love of music saying; “She had this kind of music soundtrack on all the time.” For an audience, he said, “being in that milieu has some significance. Someone who’s powerful behaves in outlandish, bigger-than-life ways creates curiosity on what motivates her”
Popular for being Musical
Immersive-style and disco-floor musical are associated with the agony and the ecstasy of the Marcos era in Philippine politics. A musical play about it has gained a reputation as one of Seattle’s stuffier theatres shakes up because of that. Imelda and her husband, the late President Ferdinand E Marcos, rose to power because of popularity. They allegedly led opulent lifestyles and imposed martial law to allegedly suppress dissent – but this has disproven by many testimonies.
Love for Dancing
It added that Imelda Marcos even had a disco built on the top floor of the Malacanang palace during their time. She is indeed one exceptional woman who’s pure love for the arts, compliments her own classic beauty inside and out. If only those foreign critics know that dancing is natural for Filipinos, they will be ashamed of themselves.
Filipino Fun through Music and Dance
Sad to say that on the negative side, Filipinos also have this crab mentality thing. The older Marcos rises into extreme popularity that made him unbeatable during elections. Presidential aspirants have to resort to media propaganda to malign his good reputation. Those ambitious Filipinos influenced the unsuspecting foreign media to make a fuzz about their singing and dancing gatherings. As nature dictates, those who make efforts to stop a nation’s culture will fail big time. Filipinos are now getting out of the colonial mentality aspect. Patriotism can only start to re-emerge.
Regardless of how detractors malign the nature of the relationship between the President and the Marcoses, it cannot be denied that some kind of a relationship exists. Political ideologies may be a factor but it is actually more simple. Much of President’s support comes from the political base of the Marcoses. Du30 acknowledges this by thanking Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos on many occasions during the elections and after. Bongbong Marcos ran under the ticket of the late Miriam Defensor-Santiago which is vital in the game. It helps strategically because anti-Marcos supporters of Du30 did not think twice about voting for him.

Winning Presidential Votes
President Du30 got 16.6 million votes. Assuming that all of the 5.9 million voters of his running mate, then Senator and now Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano voted for him, this would still leave 10.7 million votes which he received from those who voted for other vice-presidential candidates. Considering that there are claims that the votes of the President should have been around 21 million, that would even be the lower limit.
Bongbong Marcos’ Vital Votes
Bongbong Marcos got 14.1 million votes, at least according to the final results, something that he contests at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal. Taking this as the lower limit of his possible number of votes, and assuming that all the 1.5 million voters of Miriam Defensor-Santiago voted for him, this would mean that there are at least 12.6 million Marcos voters who voted for other presidential candidates.
Political Basis of Marcos’s Votes for Du30
It is logical to assume that a big majority of these 12.6 million voters would have voted for Du30. A lesser number of Marcos voters would have voted for former Vice President Jojo Binay and Senator Grace Poe. It is safe to assume that a Roxas-Marcos voter is a rare thing. Thus, it is hard to dismiss the contribution of the Marcos political base to the electoral success of the President.
Du30 Supporters Come to Like Marcos
It is hard to imagine that an anti-Marcos voter can accept Bongbong Marcos as Vice President simply because he is an ally of the President. Many of the President’s supporters remain anti-Marcos. However, if it is a choice between the namesake of Ferdinand Marcos or the Liberal Party’s Leni Robredo, it is a no-brainer. A number of pro-Du30 supporters now prefer Bongbong Marcos more after Robredo’s self-destructive moves. Thereby, many are hoping for the immediate resolution of his election protest against her through a recount. That would make him the legible heir to the Presidency.
Governor Imee Marcos said that as of now, the family focuses on the election protest of her brother, Former Senator Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo. They do not know yet what to do with the election 2019. The governor jokes that her mother, Imelda Marcos is close to becoming a stockholder at Baclaran Church as she constantly prays for the protest’s resolution. However, her brother said that she will be a great Senator.

No Family Discussion Yet
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on clarifies that she has not discussed with her family any plans to run for a Senate seat. This after her brother former Sen. Bongbong Marcos earlier said she has the makings of a “great senator.” “If ever I run for any office, the family will discuss it. As of now, we haven’t talked about it,” Marcos said in a statement. She will finish her third and final term as Ilocos Norte governor in 2019.
Bongbong Marcos thinks that the same as the COMELEC Chair’s scandal, Supreme Court Chief Justice’s impeachment cannot affect the electoral protest. In fact, in the history of the electoral protest, his case versus Robredo has already reached the highest progress.
Not Abandoning Protest
Marcos knows that Robredo’s Camp would wish for him to run for Senator in 2019. This will require him to abandon the electoral protest against her. Such abandonment or withdrawal operates to render moot the protest due to lack of interest. He swears that this is not the case. It is his ultimate priority right now. His sister Imee Marcos can definitely help in the law-making division.
The President’s Wish
Ever since the former Senator was rumored to be appointed as DILG Secretary, the President already suggested that he should concentrate on his electoral protest. Du30 is very vocal that if only he is the VP, he already resigned. It is also observed that the Du30-Cayetano campaigners during the election 2016 have opened their doors to Marcos as they continue to detest Robredo.
The President could not simply absolve Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos and former Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr. and describe them as “sinless” for alleged human rights abuses. They continue to benefit from the ill-gotten wealth of their father, late Ferdinand Marcos, said opposition lawmaker Albay 1st District Rep. Edcel Lagman said Saturday.

“Although they were teenagers when martial law was declared in September 1972, they attained the age of majority shortly after the proclamation of martial law and they were already adults during the height of the martial law regime,” Lagman said. In an interview over state-run PTV 4, Du30 said that someone should not be held accountable for the sins someone else committed.
Lagman, a martial law victim, said that Imee and Ferdinand Jr. celebrated their 18th birthdays in 1973 and 1975, respectively. They were “old enough when the documented atrocities and plunder were committed. They were allegedly by the late Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos.”
The lawmaker recounts that Imee heads the Kabataang Barangay. It is the Marcosian counterpart of today’s Sangguniang Kabataan. That was accused of involvement in the 1977 murder of Archimedes Trajano, a Mapua Institute of Technology student. Trajano questioned her credentials. On August 31, 1977, he asked during an open forum at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila her capacity to lead the national youth organization. She is only the presidential daughter, he added. Trajano was found dead two days later with signs of torture.
Human Rights as an Excuse
The Hawaii District Court awarded $4.16 million to the Trajano family in 1991. It was affirmed by the US Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit Court in 1992. Lagman said the effort of the Trajano family to enforce in the Philippines the foreign judgment was quashed by the Philippine Supreme Court. This is a mere technicality of a defective substituted service of summons to Imee. She claimed that she was then a resident of Singapore when the summons was served at the Alexandra Homes in Pasig City, her known address at that time. Perhaps Lagman forgets the rights for innocence until proven guilty.
