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.
Senators and Congressmen crumble over the news that the Marcoses are willing to turn over the wealth for humanity in gold bar certificates. Some are obviously playing dumb. Asking why only now? Little do they know that because of internet technology, people can already have access to digital evidence online. Hearings on the matter in the Senate were already conducted in the past. The public also knows that the late Ferdinand Marcos was rejected by the deceased former President Cory Aquino on his bid to explain about the wealth for humanity. It was more beneficial for her to spread lies – that Marcos was a thief.

Yellow Regime Unsuccessful in Moving the Gold
Congressman Lito Atienza divulges in a press conference that during the time of the Aquino’s they tried to move the gold but they cannot. The late President Marcos made sure that the treasures will be used for the welfare of the people – even after his death.
Legal Proceedings for Wealth Movement
The deposits are under the World Bank-IMF agreement. Central Bank certification also points to the Marcos Foundation. Consent must be given by the Marcos heir and approved by Marcos’ trustee for the government to process any movement. If one of these components is missing, it remains in its current state.
The Government’s Move
The Presidential Palace’s spokesperson, Ernesto Abella announces; “We understand that certain parties indicate to the President that there may be an opportunity for the turn over of the assets from the Marcos family to the Republic,” Abella said in a statement. “As this matter becomes clearer, we will advise what further action will be taken to finally obtain justice.”
Public Service or Political Vendetta?
Senator Ping Lacson welcomes the offer for additional funds for the Treasury. Senator Koko Pimentel is the same and calls it a donation. Congressman Edcel Lagman is more interested in its whereabouts. House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez wants all. Neri Colmenares insists that it is disadvantageous to negotiate because they were stolen that made the people poor. However, there’s no logic to this statement. LP supporters always accuse the Marcoses of alleged ill-gotten wealth but they always win any courts cases because of hard evidence in the past nor at present. If they really are products of Marcos’ gold trading before he became President, the government is only entitled to the taxes. The Marcoses want to give them all for as long as PCGG stops pursuing their personal wealth including pieces of pieces of jewelry and paintings of the former first lady.
The jobless Bongbong Marcos, for now, cannot jeopardize his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Marcos shows his support to sister Gov. Imee Marcos during the Ilocos 6 hearing with fellow former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile. According to political Analyst, Ramon Casiple, Marcos’ protest can reach the 2019 election. The Marcos’ Camp is also aware that delay is the name of Robredo’s game. Therefore, as seen during the Ilocos Norte excise tax hearing in the Congress, it’s evident that the governor is the likely bet for Senator.

All for 2019
The initially perceived as negative publicity for Gov. Imee Marcos has turned into calls for her to run as senator. Since she is now constitutionally barred from seeking reelection in 2019, running for Senator is the best option. Her brother can also seek for another senatorial term but he has gone through a lot already with his protest against Robredo that he cannot just abandon it.
Political analyst Ramon Casiple says Bongbong Marcos is yet to decide whether he’ll run for senator in 2019 but he is now unlikely to do that. He has to continue with his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo to satisfy public interest. Casiple is the chairman of the Consortium on Electoral Reforms. He said earlier that the speed of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) resolution of the case can make it or break it for Marcos.
Senatorial Race Not for BBM
If Marcos runs for Senator, the electoral protest will be moot and academic when he wins. In most cases, the PET just drop the case because of lack of interest. This is the reason why it is necessary 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 but other factors before that already delayed the process. Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal is very good in questioning every detail of his actions.
The Governor is the 2019 Bet
Since the governor already expresses her intention to help in creating or revising laws, she’s ultimately the best bet for the Senatorial race as far as the Marcos Camp is concerned. Bongbong Marcos is being molded for the Presidency anyway. He has a lot of time to prepare for the 2022 elections.
The casual interview with Gov. Imee Marcos by Atty. Bruce Rivera is not only humorous but also factual. Not the mainstream media style but this happens in real life. As the probe in the Congress continues on Ilocos’ excise tax local management, Gov. Marcos balances the stressful activities with intelligent gay talks.

Political Show in Congress
The fact that Rep. Rudy Fariñas’ political career is about to end, he needs to develop his daughter to follow his footsteps. Being a former Liberal Party member, he found a way to make a name by targeting Imee Marcos. He, however, warned the Marcoses that it’s all for the show.
Angry Bird in Comelec
Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista is often referred to as Angry Bird by the gay community. It is not clear if this has something to do with his sexuality. However, he boasts that even his estranged wife’s mother is on his side as Patricia Bautista reveals his alleged hidden wealth. Gov. Marcos casually commented that it is not surprising because the mother is an original blue lady of the yellow faction.
Bongbong Marcos’ Stand
Bongbong Marcos gets a bad headache when his wife Atty. Liza Marcos’ name was mentioned in the Bautista scandal. Gov. Marcos said that her brother was furious that people delve into their personal lives just to highlight political scenarios.
Message to Leni Robredo
The governor appreciates the Vice President who now faces the electoral protest of her brother, Bongbong Marcos. She is a mother, a lawyer, and a public servant. She is fine in her own ways but Gov. Marcos wishes that she will not allow herself to be a political prostitute.
Bongbong Marcos attends the recent Ilocos Norte excise tax hearing as Rep. Rudy Farinas grills Governor Marcos on her P Imee project. Former First Lady Imelda Marcos and Senator Juan Ponce Enrile are also present. The governor cites Farinas’ own projects that bear his name in the past. He insists that no money there unlike the P Imee. It is allegedly not in the Annual Investment Plan. However, the engineer in charge points this out for Farinas to see in the Congress.

Annual Investment Plan
Pedro Agcaoili, chair of the bids and awards committee points out the inclusion of P Imee in the Annual Investment Plan to Farinas. It was under its full name in Filipino. “Programang Ikauunlad ng Mamamayan Ekonomiya at Ekolohiya” is often called as P Imee in Ilocos Norte. They refer to the local projects of the governor for the welfare of her constituents.
Cash Advance is not Prohibited
Governor Marcos explains that the cash advance is not illegal. The COA approved it and no suspension was ever issued because they are fully liquidated. Farinas tries to disprove this by citing different ordinances but the fact that the funds were not lost and the vehicles are fully accounted for, just irks his ego and went to another topic.
1978 Ordinance by Ferdinand Marcos
Farinas cites rule no. 39 says that there’s no cash advance allowed that is not in line with the rules and regulations. COA’s new circular said that all disbursements must be made on checks unless granted. Only confidential expenses and in a circumstance that it is impractical to pay check shall procurements can be paid in cash.
Farinas accused Encarnacion Gaor wrongly that she has a house with a swimming pool because of Governor Marcos’ negligence of approving a huge amount of cash advance. Gaor said that she’s not the one with such lifestyle. Farinas corrects himself that it’s a lawyer’s way of triggering a resource person to give testimony against the real culprit. She, however, justifies that the cash advance was given in staggered payments and not in bulk.
