The presence of former vice president Jejomar Binay during the procession to the People Power Monument recently raises some eyebrows. This is among the Du30 and Marcos loyalists. Some are quick enough to judge. They probably don’t know the significance of it. Binay is no doubt an ally of the President because he is for the people. He is a human rights lawyer at that. The Detractors of the President and Bongbong Marcos who accuse them of human rights violations can never question Binay’s human rights role in the country. Even before the 1986 revolt. Binay’s alliance with the Du30-Marcos tandem can prove that they are not guilty of such accusations.

The President Supports Constructive Dissent
Roque stresses that President Du30 allows constructive dissent. Those who have grievances have space to protest. “The Church was very clear. It wasn’t political,” said Roque. However, this homily statement of Archbishop Socrates Villegas casts shadows over his non-political claim: “No politician lasts forever; only God does. Turn to the Lord and turn away from destructive politics. Peace to you all! We respect you. We call you Honorable. Be worthy of it,” he said.
Du30’s ICC Case
The case against Duterte before the ICC was filed amid the spate of killings linked to the government’s war on drugs.The complaint alleges that Duterte and at least 11 senior government officials are liable for murder and calls for an investigation, arrest warrants, and a trial. Roque, the only Philippine lawyer allowed to practice law at the ICC, nonetheless expressed openness to take on yet another role and assist Duterte if ever the latter would need his help.
Marcos and Martial Law
Bongbong Marcos, on the other hand, inherits the black media propaganda effects against his father. The late President Ferdinand Marcos is widely known as a dictator. He is allegedly guilty of martial law human rights violations. But he has no single case in that aspect. Most of all, the ill-gotten wealth false publicity. That ends up to be the wealth of humanity. The President already directs the Senate and Congress to look into that.
Binay’s Influence on the BiHoMaDu Alliance
The political assassination stints on the Binays still continue despite the Binay’s patriarch’s retirement from politics. He is now the Dean of the University of Makati. However, it is not a secret that his kingmaker, Pastor Boy Saycon is one of the advisers of President Du30. When some DDS supporters are not for Marcos as VP, they are supplemented by the many Binay-Honasan supporters who are solid Bongbong Marcos for VP crusaders. The BiHoMaDu alliance that stands for Binay, Honasan, Marcos, and Du30 gears Bongbong Marcos to be president someday.
