The possibility to be the next target for ouster is not strange for Vice President Leni Robredo. Such scenario is always possible, according to her. However, she should know that it does not serve the purpose of his rival, Bongbong Marcos. The President wants Marcos to be next in line to the presidency. Removing her as such won’t install the latter to the post. He must win the election protest to be legible as Vice President as per the constitution.

[VIDEO]: VP Robredo’s fear that she will be next to be removed from office is real. However, it is not through Quo Warranto since the election protest of Bongbong Marcos is ongoing.




Election Protest is More Likely

Professor Ranjit Rye explains during an interview at Tutok Tulfo why the quo warranto must not be applied to Vice President Leni Robredo’s case. He said that since Bongbong Marcos’ protest is already ongoing, the said remedy is not anymore necessary. The series of anomalies found during the recount may not automatically make Bongbong Marcos Vice President. The Supreme Court has to make the declaration on the real winner.

Supreme Court CJ Sereno’s Ouster is Favorable to Marcos

The Supreme Court ousts Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno over her failure to meet the “integrity test” of her position despite earlier warnings. Voting 8-6 in a special en banc session declares void Sereno’s appointment as chief justice. Those who are in favor of the ouster are Associate Justices Noel Tijam, Teresita De Castro, Lucas Bersamin, Francis Jardeleza, Samuel Martires, Andres Reyes Jr. and Alexander Gesmundo. They also made the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Heroes’ Cemetery. Needless to say, they are pro-Marcos. Therefore, Bongbong Marcos can be VP if the trend continues.




Conflict in the Senate

Senator Risa Hontiveros urges her colleagues to “cross party lines and unite to defend the integrity of the Senate. This is after the removal of Sereno.” Hontiveros said that the following senators give their support to the anti-quo warranto resolution: Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon, Francis Pangilinan, Antonio Trillanes IV, Leila de Lima, Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV, Francis Escudero, Sherwin Gatchalian, Joel Villanueva, Grace Poe, and Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara.




Balancing Act in the Supreme Court

Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio is the acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Marcos criticizes most of his resolutions that delay his election protest against Robredo. However, the President is yet to appoint Sereno’s replacement. The Filipino leader is strategic enough not to appoint a CJ who is against his plans.

Supreme Court Battle Ends: With CJ Sereno Out, Bongbong Marcos is In as VP

Supreme Court

The 8-6 special en banc session votes at the Supreme Court declares Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s appointment void. SC spokesperson Theodore Te quotes the dispositive of the decision, “Wherefore, the Petition for Quo Warranto is granted,” he said. The beleaguered CJ is ousted. In another development, the people await Bongbong Marcos’ declaration as Vice President.

Sereno is Disqualified

“Respondent [Sereno] is found disqualified from and is hereby adjudged guilty of unlawfully holding and exercising the Office of the Chief Justice. Accordingly, Sereno is ousted and excluded therefrom,” Te added.

Immediate Execution

The ruling is immediately executory. Those who voted in favor of the ouster were Associate Justices Noel Tijam, Teresita De Castro, Lucas Bersamin, Francis Jardeleza, Samuel Martires, Andres Reyes Jr. and Alexander Gesmundo.




Sol-Gen Calida’s Winning Move

The Supreme Court voted 8-6, granting the quo warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida, which questioned the qualification of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to serve as the country’s top magistrate.



Bongbong Marcos’ Rise

The dissenting votes were Associate Justices Estela Bernabe, Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa, Presbitero Jose Velasco Jr., Mariano Del Castillo, Marvic Leonen, Antonio Carpio. Bernabe is currently out of the country but left a vote against the quo warranto. The camp of Sereno already said that they will appeal the ruling. Senior Associate Justice Antonio T. Carpio as Acting Chief Justice. Despite the opposition’s force, it is evident that the administration stalwarts do not take their enemies sitting down. Therefore, it is just a matter of public announcement that the Philippines already has a new Vice President! This is just the beginning of the prophecy.

Bongbong Marcos Hopes that the April 2 Recount Won’t Be an April Fools’ Day Joke

April Fools' Day





welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Acting Workshop

Bongbong Marcos can’t help but get paranoid over the numerous delays of his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Marcos just wishes that the April 2 recount pushes through. That it won’t become an April Fools’ Day joke. He stresses that it is not surprising for his rival’s camp to keep on delaying because that’s their only chance with the alleged support of the PET chairmanship. He is sure that he is cheated. This is his reply to Raffy Tulfo who asks him about the real update of his protest.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos said that he hopes the recount date on April 2 won’t be an April fools’ joke.  He wishes that there’s no more delay. He said this during the interview in the “Sa Totoo Lang with Erwin Tulfo,”




The Most Awaited Event

Marcos clarifies that although sometimes he becomes impatient, he cannot lose his patience but to continue to wait because he is closer to the much-awaited event. This is the opening of the ballot boxes and the actual recounting of votes manually. He discloses in various occasions that digital manipulations are key factors of the fraud during the 2016 elections that may benefit Robredo.




Overwhelming Social Media Support

Marcos can only laugh at Robredo’s accusation of him using trolls to dominate social media particularly Facebook. Some online warriors who defend their candidates during the elections create aliases for their profile due to privacy or security reasons. However, it is not only Marcos’ supporters who resorted to this practice but all aspiring politicians like Robredo. It is evident for sure that his overwhelming support stays up to this day. It’s even getting stronger.




Testing the Supporters’ Patience

The choice of the latest recount date is mind-boggling. It is after the holy week when Filipino Catholics are making penance of their sins. April Fools’ Day on the first is also just a day prior to the recount. Perhaps, they need to prepare people with the uncertain developments.




Dictatorship Does Not Exist

Contrary to the black media propaganda of the anti-government bodies, the President who supports Marcos’ quest can’t be a dictator. It is clear in the drug war and in the proposed Bangsamoro law developments. The DOJ recently releases the two alleged major drug lords. Whereas the DOE delays the oil and gas exploration of a Filipino consortium that would alleviate poverty instantly. It cites the pending Bangsamoro bill as the reason for the delay. The Filipino leader endorses all these for the welfare of the Filipinos. If Du30 is a dictator, the deuterium extraction, drug lord punishment, and the presidency of Bongbong Marcos should already happen. Not after many years.

Imee Marcos on Mom: She is the Real Politician but Running in 2019 at 88?

Acting Workshop

As Bongbong Marcos awaits the recount on April 2, Governor Imee Marcos hints that although her mother is already 88 years old, she’s still the real politician in the family. Her mother would exaggerate her age just to refuse speculations that she can still run for a government position. She would say that since she’s already a 100 years old, better give her a break, Gov. Marcos explained. Instead, she takes on the responsibility of convincing the younger members of the Marcos generation to do the job this time, the governor added.

[VIDEO]: Gov. Imee Marcos: Mom, Imelda Marcos is the Real Politician



Real Politician in the Marcos Family

In a one on one with Milky Rigonan from DZRH Manila, Imee discusses the issue on who will next run for local if she will have to run for national. The kids, however, don’t seem to have any interest in politics. Imee was then asked if her mom, Cong. Imelda Marcos will run for the next election. She tells Milky, that her mom would say that she is already too old. But Gov. Imee comments that her mom is still the real politician in the family.




Riding on her Popularity

The House committee recently approved the issuance of a subpoena to compel Gov. Marcos and 6 officials from the province to testify before the committee that is probing into the province’s use of tobacco excise tax and the “tangible benefits” it gave to tobacco farmers in the area. The resolution was filed by the progressive Makabayan bloc in the House. Such move is obviously an attempt to ride on her surging popularity.




Ilocos 6 Reappearance

The 6 officials who are also served with a subpoena include Eden Battulayan, Pedro Agcaoili, Evangeline Tabulog, Josephine Calajate, Encarnacion Gaor, and Genedine Jambaro. The committee wants Marcos and the 6 officials to appear before them and testify during the next hearing scheduled on May 21, 2018.




Self-destruction is Becoming a Trend

Meanwhile, VP Leni Robredo says in an interview that the attacks that she receives mostly come from a well-oiled infrastructure. They are not from real people. She comments that her small percentage of real people is not enough defending her. It is hard to keep up with her attackers who employ those expensive setups, she said. These words of the VP went viral over social media but to her disadvantage. Perhaps, other lawmakers who try to discredit Marcos would want to taste Robredo’s own bitter medicine.

If Du30 can Give Ferdinand Marcos a Hero’s Burial, See what he can Offer to the Son Despite Martial Law Criticisms

Acting Workshop

It is not surprising for people who know President Du30 why on the eve of the so-called EDSA People’s power, he hails the late President Ferdinand Marcos as a hero. Knowledgeable Filipinos can relate to this because the only reason why EDSA was peaceful is that, the former President had the heart of preventing a bloody defense by stepping down. Nonetheless, Du30 can be irked by unmindful protests. One example is the alleged Martial Law survivor Boni Ilagan’s urging students from the College of Mass Communication. He advises them to “create their own First Quarter Storm.” This is after the President threatens UP students to give their slots to Lumad or native candidates if they continue to engage in walkouts for protest activities. Du30 skips its annual commemoration again for the second time.

[VIDEO]: President Duterte in a speech addressing the Ilocano Soldiers, he brings up Marcos’ legitimacy as a hero. “If the Ilocanos want Marcos to be their hero, give it to them.” He asserts that Marcos is both a soldier and a lawyer and is deserving of a hero’s burial.




Dictatorship Misconception

Another rebellious act in Tacloban City, Lianne Ponferada of the College Editors Guild of the Philippines describes President Du30 in three words: fascist, dictator, and anti-poor. In Metro Manila, students from different universities organize individual activities at their respective campuses before gathering in Morayta, Manila with the rest of the protesters. This proves that a concerted effort is initiated to destabilize the government using the supporters of the opposition. The yellow media made minor rallies larger than life in their coverages. Whereas individuals reveal the truth like Dr. Chinel Monares, Executive Director, Save Me Movement.




Baseless Accusations

Thousands of protesters march the streets in various cities around the country to slam Du30’s alleged repressive policies against the poor. They also chant their fight for press freedom and human rights. However, fact-checking can ultimately dismiss these accusations. If the President is really a dictator, he would fast-track Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. He does not even interfere despite the Supreme Court PET chairman’s delaying the recount.




Misleading the Youth

It is evident since the beginning of the President’s term that the Liberal Vice-President overwhelmingly influence the Filipino youth through her speeches as she travels nationwide. They even distribute Marcos, Never Again books. This highlights alleged martial law abuses. Therefore. thousands of students, artists, and activists went out to the streets on Friday, February 23. Some of them are from Luzon to Mindanao to protest against the pro-Marcos president.




Prophetic Prediction

The anti-administration rally organizers said that the nationwide protest seeks to raise awareness on several issues. They include press freedom, human rights, Charter Change, mass transport, extrajudicial killings, and martial law in Mindanao in their campaign. Collectively, the protesters show their concern over the assumed looming dictatorship of President Du30. The same scenario as to the event leading to the fall of President Marcos. The yellows seem to forget that they are destabilizing a very popular leader. In fact, since the evidence against Robredo is logical, we can just wake up one day that our new President is already Bongbong Marcos. As the prediction says; hail the pearl of the orient now has a new leader. His name symbolizes the sound of a bell…bong, bong, bong.
