A Marcos loyalist is a witness to the Marcoses’ stand in Hawaii. She considers herself as a common Filipino citizen who believes in the legacy of the late Ferdinand Marcos. She acts as an emissary between Senator Juan Ponce Enrile and the Marcos couple. Cherry Cabarrubias stresses that Marcos preserves democracy to protect the country. Just like what Enrile said repeatedly.

She is proud to attest that claims of human rights violations against the strong man cannot stand in local courts. They strive only in the US for monetary purposes. She is not happy with students who protest against the leader without any clue about the truth. Her version is the real thing and not historical revisionism as what detractors campaign it to be.
Killings during the Marcos Regime
The killings during the Marcos regime are due to the disobedience of some people. Martial Law dictates discipline and most of the alleged victims are either conniving with the rebels or just faking their cases to make a claim for the money. It is again happening now under the current administration. The opposition accuses the President of extra-judicial killings because he has the “teeth” to punish wrong doers.
Democracy did not Die
During the Marcos martial law, democracy did not die. Hence, it was preserved to safeguard the country against invaders and terrorists. Plaza Miranda was bombed. The first family was harassed and the media was dominated by people who were inciting rebellion against the leadership of Marcos. Naturally, a great President can only defend his country and people.
The Return of Ferdinand Marcos
Bongbong Marcos who still has a vast of supporters both online and offline focuses on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. He is winning in whichever angle. However, Robredo has one ace card left and that is to delay the protest to prevent the namesake from claiming his post in the executive office. Once he decides to run for Senator in 2019, he automatically has to withdraw from the protest. Should he continues to fight the legal battle, he might not have the chance to serve for the position at satisfactory left. That leads him to decide whether to run for VP or President during the 2022 elections.
