While the Liberal Party and Aquino-loyal politicians and supporters try to highlight the bad outcome of the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ leadership rather than the good, Bongbong Marcos never expresses hate towards them. In fact, he swears that if he wins, going after them can’t be the nation’s policy. Marcos will stand strongly against prosecuting Noynoy Aquino or any leader for whatever anomalies because it can hamper unity among Filipinos. It is just counter-productive for the country, he said.
YouTube Video by; ABS-CBN News [VIDEO]: Despite the decades-old political rift between their families, Bongbong Marcos believes that the administration should not run after President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III over alleged railroaded budget allotments.
Golden Era becomes the Dark Age
Martial law under the Marcos patriarch continues to stir up debates. After 45 years, his heirs gain back national influence. This triggers alleged human rights victims to seek justice for money. Bongbong Marcos said that their family’s history is “still being written.” The current history is the propaganda version of their detractors. The Aquinos’ two-term in power made that possible.
Disputes on Statistics
Gross domestic product or GDP growth peaked right after Marcos’s declaration of Martial law in 1972. It reaches nearly 9 percent in 1973 and 1976, partly driven by a commodity boom when the prices of major Philippine commodity exports like coconut and sugar went up. However, it was also under his leadership when the country hit the worst recession in history: a 7.3-percent contraction for 2 successive years in 1984 and 1985, as his grip on power waned. The anti-Marcoses stress on the times when the LP’s destabilization efforts already took a toll on Marcos’ administration.
Traitor of Both Sides
On the other hand, the Aquino patriarch, the late Senator Ninoy Aquino wanted the Americans to tell Marcos anything that can provoke him to declare Martial Law. It was necessary to fully instigate the ideal time for an anti-Marcos revolution. He believed that could catapult him into the presidency. At the same time, he divulges what the communists were up to. He wanted to get America’s trust to get their support. It is a way to legitimize a revolutionary government. He must demonstrate to them that he can betray his communist collaborators once he becomes president. That’s most probably why he said that if he were president like Marcos, he would also not hesitate to declare martial law.
No Unity when Hate Exists
Bongbong Marcos’ family remain as the image of a Filipino status symbol. They care about the welfare of the people. Their characters show that there’s no place for hate and revenge. This is despite the projections of tyranny against them. Most people realized that already. It is just a matter of time that the nation’s culprits can repent.
Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella announces that work in government offices and classes in public schools and universities are suspended on Sept. 21, the National Day of Protest. However, Abella stresses that it is not a special non-working holiday. Suspensions in private companies and schools are up to the discretion of their respective management. This is the government’s response to Tindig Pilipinas. The group’s aim is to convince people to speak up on pressing issues. Then, denounce the government’s alleged ‘anti-people policies.’ Amidst all these, former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile said that Sept. 21 is the day that Filipinos must be thankful to the late Ferdinand Marcos.

Not just Liberal Party
The group’s co-convenor, Rep. Gary Alejano of Magdalo Party-list, explained that Tindig Pilipinas was not organized by the Liberal Party. Even if there were Senators who are members of the Senate Minority and former cabinet officials of the previous administrations in the movement.
National Day of Protest
The “National Day of Protest” is for people to exercise their constitutional rights to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly and to seek redress for their grievances against the government, past or present,” Abella said. This is how democracy should be.
Away from Law Enforcers
He said law enforcers are directed to stay away from mass actions and to exercise maximum restraint. Unless their intervention is necessary to maintain public order. Select government agencies will also be on standby to provide emergency assistance near protest sites. The President’s major concern is the people’s safety just like Marcos’ thoughts during the EDSA revolt.
President Du30’s mouth might be as bad as his detractors but at least, he has the late Ferdinand Marcos’ respect for the real democracy. Despite the LP propaganda of his alleged tyranny, former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile lives to this date to testify the late President Marcos’ brilliance. In all his decisions for the country, he was always lawful as supported by lawmakers. Therefore, Sept. 21 can be remembered as the day he saved the country from communism.
Bongbong Marcos responds to Erwin Tulfo’s question about the update of the electoral protest that the Supreme Court already made necessary preparations for the recount. The PET also orders to retrieve the ballot boxes from the pilot provinces identified by Marcos. He basically expects the recount to start in November. That should produce a result already in December 2017.

Smartmatic Pays Bautista
The signed affidavit of Patricia Bautista, estranged wife of COMELEC Chair, Andres Bautista that says he indeed receives a fee from Smartmatic is already against the law. This fact alone already gives an impression to the public that there was indeed manipulation in the 2016 election results.
First Course of Action Not Relevant to Protest
Since the PET already ruled that the first course of action in Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo is not relevant anymore to the recount, Bautista’s case can just die down. The focus is already on the wait for the start of the recount. November is fast-approaching so, the people are anxious for it to start. This is with the hope that at the end of the year, the case is resolved. That the real winner for the VP post can already assume by 2018.
Bloody Drug War
Marcos also explains why the President’s drug war is quite bloody. He said that the streets are already tainted with blood even before the start of the drug war. Naturally, it takes a bloody method to stop a bloody crime. It’s a choice between the criminals and the authorities to perish.
The OFWS are important to the economy of the country. There is an indication that the enemies of the administration are using their influence to discredit the President. The series of deaths among teenagers who are mostly children of OFWs follow a pattern that can create hatred among overseas contract workers to the President. The September 21 rally at the Luneta against the administration also follows the same procedure when the detractors of the late President Ferdinand Marcos staged violent events to blame them to the Marcos regime.
Bongbong Marcos said it himself that he is very lucky to be a Marcos. He thinks that the Philippines would have been a better country had it not been for the Edsa event in 1986. He talks confidently about his political strategies and his father’s legacy because he knows his father’s plan for the Philippines. This includes the wealth for humanity and how it can be used for the good of the people. It is highly secured by their patriarch that prevented looters from gaining access to it.

A Wealth Keeper than a Dictator
The Marcos name remained one of his strongest assets of Bongbong Marcos. He has nothing to apologize for as far as the presidential stint of his father is concerned. His family’s remarkable political resurrection has nothing to do with wanting money or power. They have a mission to reinstate the conditions planned by the late President for his beloved country. He was not a dictator as what detractors insist upon. He just wanted the best for his people.
Detractors were Rewriting History
Since the late Marcos was toppled in 1986. So much lies were thrown by the media to the world. However, the truth always prevails. The three-decade wait is already very long for justice to finally materialize. The family is indeed set to make a difference. Not just in the country but also to the world. History will correct itself as the mysteries unfold.
He Knows his Father’s Plan
The son of the greatest President of the country does not only possess his remarkable qualities. He has gained wisdom over the course of time. His political moves based on the sentiments of the public are very democratic. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. For as long as it’s the right time. He announced that he knows his father’s plan for a progressive Philipines and it is bound to happen under his leadership.
Crucial to Go Back to Power
President Du30′ support, the wealth for humanity, and his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo are correlated with each other. These are all complimenting his return to power. When one is destined to lead, no one can block – even the Liberal Party. His alliance would back him up until the end. It is crucial that Ferdinand Marcos goes back to power for the Will and Testament’s manifestation.
Senator Bam Aquino said; It’s just right that the Marcoses return their wealth to us because that’s the money of the Filipino people. It really should be returned, but the question is, how much of the money they stole will be returned to us? It should be the entire amount. He stresses that the gold reserves deposited by the late Ferdinand Marcos for the welfare of humanity at various international banks sanctioned by the World Bank were stolen by the Marcoses. He made it obvious that he has no knowledge at all on how they were acquired and how much the Philippine government can collect in taxes to own them.
YouTube Video by; Elena Grace Flores [VIDEO]: Senator Bam Aquino takes the opportunity to accuse the Marcoses of stealing the wealth for humanity and demanded its total return. This is despite the fact of not having the clue on how they were obtained.
Senator Risa Hontiveros said the family’s wealth never belonged to them in the first place. “Saying that they are willing to return portions of the ill-gotten wealth means that they have it. And the wealth never belonged to them, to begin with. Generations of Filipinos who suffered deserve more than crumbs from the table,” Hontiveros said. The lady Senator refuses to acknowledge that the Marcoses are innocent until proven guilty. The surviving family members of the late President cannot even own the reserves. Let alone move them. Senators should investigate first before opening their mouth to save themselves from shame later on.
Senator Francis Pangilinan also said that the intentions of the Marcoses should not be taken at face value. Aside from returning the ill-gotten wealth, the Marcoses should also apologize for atrocities committed during Martial Law, he said. Why would the Marcoses apologize to the people after their patriarch secured the said wealth for their welfare from corrupt politicians?
The President’s Call
The President said that the ousted president secured the wealth because he was just protecting it for the economy. Even his own family does not have the right to decide on what to do with them. This is why Imelda Marcos pleaded with the government since time immemorial for the Senate to study how they can be put to good use for the country.
Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest
The news breaks when Bongbong Marcos urges the Supreme Court to order the retrieval of ballots from key provinces for the recount to take place immediately. This creates speculations that he’s bribing Du30 to interfere with the process. However, isn’t it the Senators’ job to find out the real score before judging anyone?
