Many Filipinos are in disgust after hearing Vice President Leni Robredo who claims that darkness envelops the country. This happens during the 72nd anniversary of the Liberal Party recently. She calls on members of her group to continue fighting for their beliefs. As usual, the LP’s loyal media made some major stunts internationally after their past fake news did not work locally. Publications in the US and Japan primarily picked up her statements that put the country in a bad light. This is contrary to Bongbong Marcos’ message of honor, patriotism, camaraderie, and service to the people during the 3rd anniversary of the Mamasapano massacre that the previous administration of Robredo’s party is responsible for.

History Repeats Itself
Robredo also laments that history seems to repeat itself, noting that the party’s membership declines similar to the time of her rival’s father. Several LP members are already in Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan. This is the party of President Rodrigo Du30, who won a landslide victory in the 2016 presidential race. She remains insecure to Bongbong Marcos whom she only had a hairline margin in the VP race. The process of the recount for the questionable post is now ongoing. Ballot boxes from Camarines Sur, her bailiwick are about to be transported to Manila.
Out of Touch with Realities
Presidential spokesman Harry Roque disagrees with Robredo. He says that the vice president’s remarks are “completely out of touch with the existing realities.” Roque cites Gallup International polls that suggest the Philippines as the third happiest country in the world. It is also the fifth highest country in the economic optimism index. He also cites Social Weather Stations surveys that indicate 96 percent entered the new year with hope and fewer Filipino families consider themselves poor.
Majority of the People’s Approval
Roque said the results of an SWS survey conducted last quarter indicated that more than eight out of 10 Filipinos trust Du30 while a Pulse Asia poll suggested that the President is the most approved and most trusted among the country’s top officials. Satisfaction with the current administration remains excellent based on the SWS poll recently conducted, he added.
Unlike Robredo, the former Senator inspires Filipinos with their own sense of values. He stresses that the gallant SAF44 may be fallen but they are not forgotten. Their demise must remind the people that without the peace process, civil war is likely. Filipinos killing their own kind is the most painful thing to watch, he said. Marcos’ patriotism appeals to the public greatly, making Robredo the most hated VP as she continues to ruin the country’s image with her unfounded conclusions. February 2018 is a much-awaited event for the start of the recount.
The ballot retrieval for the election protest of Bongbong Marcos initially from Vice President Leni Robredo’s bailiwick, Camarines Sur starts January 23, 2018. As this date nears, pro-Liberal Party media brought out stunts of freedom suppression allegations against Marcos-friendly President Du30. This has reached the international scene as foreign media criticized the Filipino leader. There seems to have a power struggle in the Senate and Congress also. They pursue Federalism in their own way. Senate President, Koko Pimentel and Speaker of the House, Pantaleon Alvarez are both in the Presidential line of succession. Meanwhile, as these politicians are busy with the fiasco, Marcos headed out to the streets of Manila to formulate strategies with his team of experts on how to ease traffic congestion in the capital

Traffic Congestion Study
Bongbong Marcos leads a team of experts during the survey of common factors that lead to traffic congestion in Manila. He hopes to craft policies that would help alleviate the people’s sufferings while commuting. Automotive journalist James Deakin, architect Jun Palafox, and Brandon Vera, a Filipino-American mixed martial artist were with him.
Source of the Problem
The bottom line always with traffic problems is the attitude of not giving way to others, said Bongbong Marcos. This is why policies must be crafted to improve not just the transportation infrastructure but also the mentality of the daily commuters. Discipline is still needed in the Filipino society.
Nature of Rappler
Shortly after the publishing of Deakin and Marcos’ Metro Manila traffic problem discussion in a video, Rappler posted a blog using netizens to publicize their own sentiments. According to their article, Netizens said that Deakin should have known better than to associate himself with the son of the late Ferdinand Marcos. This just shows that the defunct online platform is more into gossips than real facts. It only published something about the retrieval to urge Robredo’s supporters to watch out for the ballots.
Back to the Recount
All the noises created by the Marcos detractors cannot hide the fact that the tide is about to turn to his favor very soon. It’s a “wait and see” game over the net these days. Professional media practitioners would wait for credible sources to confirm before publishing. All of them are getting ready to cover January 23, 2018, ballot retrieval as mainstream media ignores the plight of the possible future President of the Philippines.
The oligarchs hate leaders like the late President Ferdinand Marcos. Marcos Sr. is an anti-oligarch during his regime. It was when the Philippines is rich but the oligarchs suffer. Influential families like the Aquinos demonize him as a “Dictator.” They ride into the EDSA mutiny. Convert it as people’s revolution through media propaganda to overthrow him. Marcos and his rule become so black, that overshadow his accomplishments. To date, the political prostitute of such powerful faction even has the nerve to tell Bongbong Marcos to refrain from filing a motion. This is after riding on his ballot decryptions without paying a single cent. The VP recount is due in February 2018. Filipinos must know this scenario to understand why the Marcos detractors have to taint his whole family as the tyrant, corrupt, and inhuman they portray their patriarch to be.

Oligarchs versus Du30
Many of the Filipinos are brainwashed by these oligarchs. They reign during the terms of the Aquinos. This paves the way for selective economic progress, widespread criminality, illegal drugs trade, and corruption. Until now, these bias media are still in existence to attack and destroy the same type of leader as the late Marcos in the person of President Du30.
Demonization of the Marcoses
There is a practical reason for Marcos’ demonization. It was a major project by both the Communist Party of the Philippines and the oligarchy. This advanced their respective agendas. The communists’ objective was to expand the organization and get sympathizers in a country which is extremely anti-communist. The only way to achieve that was to portray the Marcos regime as a ruthless, fascist state. They are doing it again with the Du30 administration.
Why Include Bongbong Marcos?
Why would the oligarchs want to demonize Bongbong Marcos also? By doing so, it can conceal the greedy class rule if they can prevent the return of the bloodline of their number one enemy. It prevents people from looking at the real basic problems of the nation if no leader can emerge who knows the real score, which is the oligarchs’ unequal hold over productive assets.
Caution to President Du30
President Du30 once referred to oligarchs as the nation’s problem. He seems to have a good grip on the country’s situation. However, as powerful as they can be, he knows that Bongbong Marcos can do better to balance their interests for the welfare of the country as a whole. That’s why their detractors are trying to do everything they can to block this.
Gone are the days when people rely on the mainstream media news particularly TV reports to confirm big events. However, in today’s digital age, Facebook got them first. But some people still have doubts until such information is shown on the home screens. The initial report of Bongbong Marcos’ recent victory against the COMELEC which insists on his liability over the election storage fees overseas now starts in the broadcasting networks.

COMELEC’s Lack of Discretion
The Supreme Court’s Decision
The Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), ruled that the Commission on Elections (Comelec) must pay for the storage fees of election materials kept in foreign posts. In a 6-page decision dated October 10, the PET denied the Comelec’s petition requesting that the storage fees be shouldered instead by former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, who had filed an electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.
The Poll Body Wanted Marcos to Pay for its Liability
The Comelec reasoned that it could not bring back these election materials to the country within the period required by the PPO, resulting in additional costs. It earlier suggests to let Marcos pay because of his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. But the PET did not agree. It said that the PPO did not prohibit the Comelec from transferring the election materials to the poll body’s main office in Intramuros, Manila.
Strong Public Force
It can be felt via social media that the public is already getting fed up with the slow progress of the recount. This is the only way to resolve the legitimacy of the Vice Presidency. There are obvious forces that contribute to its delay as the majority of Filipinos shout for the immediate recount online. Why can’t mainstream media do the same if they are of the people?
In Erwin Tulfo’s radio program, he enumerates instances why Senator Antonio Trillanes IV fits into the label; the father of fake news as he tries to malign the first family. This is consistent with the former Vice President Jejomar Binay’s Camp disclosure. The title coincides with the Department of Justice’s filing a libel complaint against him when he accused Binay of corruption during the elections 2016. Just to deny the ex-VP of the Presidency. However, Binay and Du30 are veteran enough to trick Trillanes. The two LP oppositions formed an alliance to mold Bongbong Marcos as President of the Philippines at the soonest possible time. Nevertheless, it seems that the Senator’s prediction on Marcos is failing as 2017 is coming to an end.

Trillanes is quoted as saying; “I do believe that before the year 2017 ends, we would have a new Vice President.” Marcos’s electoral protest is now in the decryption and printing of ballot stage. It takes about 7 months to finish. The actual ballot recount may fast-track the proceeding but at the rate, it is going, it can easily be extended to 2018.
False Crusader against Fake News
According to Salgado, the DOJ’s resolution also exposed Trillanes as “a fake crusader against fake news,” calling the senator the “pioneer of fake news” since 2015. “He was spreading fake news since 2015. He deserves the unflattering title ‘father of fake news in the Philippines,’” he added.
Trillanes still has to comment on this matter. Salgado said that the DOJ’s resolution to file a libel complaint against Trillanes vindicated Binay over the malicious claims made by the Senator.” They only confirmed that the Senate hearings against the ex-VP “were purely in aid of political demolition, not legislation. According to Tulfo, Trillanes also want to do the same to the President but the alliance won’t let him succeed. All his allegations are in vain from the alleged BPI deposits of the President to Matobato for Davao Death Squad. Now, he’s pushing his luck on Du30’s son, Vice Mayor Paolo Du30 and son-in-law Man’s Carpio’s illegal drug shipment accusation based on hearsays.
