Bongbong Marcos urges the Supreme Court once again to treat the recount on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo as important as an election. He awaits since September the date that the PET has to set. Marcos also clarifies in an interview that his previous estimate on the manual count which is up to 2 to 3 months starts only from the SC’s official date if it is undertaken promptly.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos explains the 3 courses of actions in the electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo and the 2 to 3 months time frame for the recount.

Estimate Clarification on Recount

In an interview, Marcos reiterates that his 2 to 3 months estimate is applicable only from the official recount date that the Supreme Court still has to decide on. He expects it on 50 tables, that should be done within two months. The Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET already has a team to locate and retrieve ballot boxes from the contested areas. However, the actual retrieval can’t be done by COMELEC yet due to 2 other protests. One of which is the Cebu mayoral race.

Cebu Recount Justify the Discrepancy Trend

Robredo’s victory only has a slim margin of 263,473 votes over Marcos. The Protestant’s camp wants the PET to recount first the ballot boxes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. Once a discrepancy is noted in these pilot areas, a decision to continue or not can be drawn for the conclusion. In fact, anomalies are already seen in the Cebu manual count for Michael Rama’s electoral protest against the incumbent mayor. They are confident more than ever that in the 3 pilot provinces alone, Marcos can already have around one million votes lead.

Reaction from Robredo’s Camp

Atty Bernadette Sardillo argues that 3 months is too short to get this done and over with. That span of time is almost over already since the High Court pronounces that it is in the Tribunal’s best interest to give Marcos’ electoral protest a speedy treatment. However, it asks patience because this is one case that is unique among the previous protests.

SC on Holiday Mood Already

Inquiries on the recount are now only through social media. Since Christmas is fast approaching, government officials tend to stay away from their regular mandate. By now, they are probably switching to the planning of holiday events. The Marcos camp can’t do anything much but wait for what the New Year can bring on their case.

3 Months Not Enough for Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest Conclusion

How Strong is President Du30’s Hand on Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest?


welcome By:

Malacañang just urges Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno should resign to save the Supreme Court from “further damage.” Spokesperson Harry Roque confirmed this. “Of course, the President wants her removed altogether, by all means,” he said. The Congress also previously voted to impeach Andres Bautista. Bautista stepped down as chairman of the COMELEC last month. All these are speculated to be Du30’s hand on Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against Leni Robredo for the VP race.

Second Senate Decision is Harmful

“It will be very difficult for the judiciary to recover from a second Senate decision to remove a sitting Chief Justice because of a finding that that Chief Justice is guilty of an impeachable offense. I don’t think the Court can afford that so soon. Considering the previous removal of former chief justice Corona,” Roque said.

Psychiatric Issues

Two SC psychiatrists express willingness to testify against Sereno. The two were career employees in the judiciary. They were dismissed after their findings that she failed a psychiatric examination. The confidential report is with the Judicial and Bar Council which Sereno – as SC chief – heads, and whose ex-officio members include Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, a Senator, and a congressman, among others.

Aquino’s Appointee

Sereno, who was appointed by former president Benigno Aquino III to head the SC when she was 52, will be chief justice for 18 years, or until 2030, when she reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70 for magistrates. If she completes her term, she will have the distinction of serving four administrations – Aquino, President Duterte and the succeeding administrations in 2022 and 2028. Sereno was the youngest SC justice in the 15-member SC when Aquino promoted her in 2012

Election Protest is Now Too Long

It cannot be denied that these series of events are some kind of the President’s hand to give justice to Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against Robredo for the VP post. However, since the President adheres to the rule of law, he cannot just implement what he wants. The legal processes must be followed. He can only do so much. The only way now is for the people to shout out loud for the Supreme Court to conduct a recount immediately!

Cebu is Not Bongbong Marcos’ Pilot Province but he Got 53 Less Votes from Manual Count


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

A “random statistics report” that ex-Congressman Glenn Chong got a copy of showed the results for the VP race in 40 select precincts in Cebu City which is not Bongbong Marcos’ pilot province for the recount. This takes place in the revision of votes in the election protest of Protestant mayoral candidate Michael Rama versus the incumbent mayor Tomas Osmeña. The report was based on election returns as printed by the vote-counting machines and compared to the physical counting of ballot marks. Chong said Marcos’ vote “discrepancy” was bigger than Robredo’s. In 14 out of 40 precincts that showed a discrepancy, the total votes for Marcos in the election returns was 53 votes less than in the physical count. In Robredo’s case, the difference was only 13.

System Failure or Manipulation

“For us, for me, there can be no other explanation, that this was a manipulation,” said Chong. “Whether the machine got it wrong or there was cheating,” “the machine count still wasn’t right. Because when you ‘extrapolate’ it, there’s a big difference between the actual vote count and the machine count,” added Chong. The former Congressman and lawyer was the one who exposes that he was offered to win the election in exchange for millions of Pesos.

Cebu is Not Marcos’ Pilot Province

Robredo won in Cebu (plus Lapu-Lapu City) and Cebu City, getting a combined 817,052 votes, versus Marcos’ 310,054 votes. Asked about whether this would help Marcos in his VP election protest, Chong said that Cebu City and Cebu province are in the protest, but not among the “pilot” areas. Marcos should prove his case first in his 3 pilot areas before the rest of the areas in the protest.

Discrepancies in Many Areas can Cover the Slim Margin

Marcos’ pilot provinces are Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. He lost to Robredo by only 263,473 votes. His election protest contested Robredo’s victory. The decryption and the printing of the ballots are now ongoing. However, the PET still has to order the retrieval of the ballot boxes for the manual recount from these areas.

Defending the Election’s Integrity

Chong said that the source of the “random statistics report” was former Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. Brillantes commented on Chong’s claim saying that; he “assures Marcos whom he supports that there are no supposed manipulations being made.” Chong retaliated with logical reasoning; “If it were not for Brillantes, then we wouldn’t have been able to know it. In a way, I thank him,” said Chong. “He declared himself as the source, and that document becomes credible,” he added.

Bongbong Marcos Focuses on Election Protest, Endorses Sister Imee for Senator

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.

Sereno’s Impeachment

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.

Enrile is NOT a Traitor to Ferdinand Marcos but the Keeper of his Legacy


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile is often portrayed as the villain against the late President Ferdinand Marcos. It is because of his role during the EDSA event. Many journalists ignore his explanations that all his actions were made with the blessings of Marcos who was more than a brother to him. At his ripe age, Enrile divulges the legacy of Marcos through interviews, documentaries, and manuscripts. The good leader’s diaries show the destabilization strategy of the deceased Ninoy Aquino. The “yellow” patriarch’s communism ideology, connivance with the leftists’ groups and media manipulation through the oligarchs are highlighted. Bongbong Marcos can only shed tears upon receiving these important pieces of the puzzle. Enrile now serves as the adviser of the Marcos siblings.

Human Rights Abuses by the PC

Most warrants of arrest during the Martial Law were ordered by Former President Fidel Ramos. He was PC Chief from 1970 to 1986. It was the PC’s top anti-subversive unit, the 5th Constabulary Security Unit that made such arrests were the ones responsible for beatings and torture. Prisoners including media personalities were incarcerated for nearly two years from early 1973 to Christmas 1974,  in  Camp Aguinaldo and Fort Bonifacio special prisons that were under the supervision of Martial Law administrator Enrile. Enrile got most of the blame but in the end, it was he who officially ordered their release, “in the spirit of reconciliation and Christmas,” to quote that particular kind of release order. What about Ramos?

Cory Aquino’s Misjudgements

If human rights violations during Martial Law were as horrible as what Noynoy Aquino claims, then why did his mother Cory Aquino appoint Ramos first as her AFP Chief of Staff? Then, Defense Secretary? She even fielded Ramos for the 1992 presidential race and threw government resources behind him. She lost her moral decency when she used Ramos as a shield to the seven coup attempts headed by now Senator Gringo Honasan who has high regard on Enrile. Honasan also backs and supports Bongbong Marcos as VP through the Binay Camp. That made her an opportunist.

Just the Beginning of Marcos’ Legacy

Now that Enrile already handed over the late Marcos’ diaries to his son, Bongbong Marcos, his legacy will continue. The younger leader needs to lead alongside with the President. However, he has to be mindful with the strategies of leftists and Liberal Party crusaders. The same pattern is evident as when these entities tried to destabilize his father’s government. Needless to say, such plots can only cease as soon as he becomes VP.

Election Protest Progress

Further delays on the recount happen as COMELEC’s request for additional time are granted by the Supreme Court twice. In spite of that, former Senator Marcos is still confident to finally get his post by the end of this year. VP Leni Robredo’s Camp cannot fathom where Marcos gets his confidence. They refer to it as mind-conditioning efforts. However, with the double impeachment happening against the COMELEC Chair and the Supreme Court Chief Justice, Filipinos can only guess what comes next.
