How does Bongbong Marcos use Leni Robredo to keep himself relevant?

A Marcos just lost to a Robredo despite that strong heavy well-known name. Pretty hurts, does it?

Pero papano ko nga ba nasabi na ginagamit lang ni Bongbong Marcos si Leni Robredo?

How? Paano? Sa anong paraan?

After niyang matalo sa vice presidential race noong 2016, nag-file ang former senator ng electoral protest that says that his rival, VP Leni Robredo, cheated her way to the vice president position.

Why bother to file a protest, ang dami nang nag-electoral protest noon pero wala namang naging successful?

Two things. It’s his only way to keep himself relevant and it’s a chance to take in hopes that he can still get that vice president title from the one seated.

Sinasabi niya noon na gusto niya yung vice president position dahil gusto niya maglingkod sa bayan then guess what? There are other ways to serve the country, Mr. Marcos.

But then oo nga pala, that’s just his sweet sugar reasoning. Of course he wants to be the vice president because he needs the power.

He requested for a recount and he had the right to choose the regions kung saan kukunin yung mga ballots to have it recounted again. Some people may find it surprising because the three places he chose were all Leni Robredo’s bailiwick, BALWARTE ni Leni.

Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros.

Malamang sa malamang, hindi talaga siya mananalo sa recount na yon pero if you were to think about it, why did he choose those places?

Nagsisimula ka pa lang sa plano mo, alam ko na ang ending na gusto mo, Mr. Marcos.

He chose those places to appear confident but at a deeper purpose, he is aiming to stain the credibility of the votes from these places. I bet he’s not after the results but he’s after the largest to tiniest discrepancies and errors of the ballots from those places so that he can use it as a ground to nullify and discredit the votes from the said places. Mga galawang talo.

You need proofs?

1. Presscon agad si BBM when the recount started.

2. Hatak agad ni BBM mga supporters niya sa labas ng SC with Imee Marcos and his wife then kamayan to everyone like it’s elections again.

3. Look at BBM and his lawyers’ statements as the recount began. They immediately pointed out na meron ilang ballots na basa, may mga ballots na may cracks and holes, hindi daw kumpleto ang auditing logs and these are all anomalies DAW.

Yes, DAW. Because that is just according to the two of them.

Wet ballots. It happens. Probably due to moist upon storage but automated polls has this perk that upon voting, the machine doesn’t just produce this ballot paper but they also produce a digital image of the ballot so wet ballot or not, we still have these digital images to look at. Also, where are the proofs of wet ballots? I need receipts. Also, if this actually affects the credibility of the ballots then ano yon? VP candidates part lang ng ballots ang affected? VP part lang yung basa? Lol! Try harder. NOT an anomaly.

Cracks/Holes on ballots. It also happens. Halos dalawang taon nang nakastore yung mga balota. What do you expect it to look like? Clean white slate sheet of papers? Please. Also, there are digital copies of it so we can still verify to be sure. NOT an anomaly.

Auditing Logs. It has nothing to do with the count of votes and ballots. With or without auditing logs, the votes on the ballot still counts because wala namang relate yung auditing logs sa count ng votes sa ballot. Also, missing auditing logs can be easily reproduced and it is in the hands of the COMELEC. Some netizens go like kung hindi nandya si Leni bakit may mga nawawalang auditing logs? (Pal, do you even know what auditing logs are for or are you just acting like you know something?) NOT an anomaly.

Obviously, Bongbong knows he was really defeated by Leni Robredo but he’s still playing this patriot, ipaglalaban-ko-ito-dahil-gusto-ko-maglingkod-sa-bansa who’s so frustrated for being cheated on so that he can earn the sympathy of the people and with that, he can raise his rank to the next senatorial race or maybe even the next presidential race.

I must say, Bongbong Marcos is a great politician but not too good to convince me that he is purely working and fighting for the Filipinos and the country. You’re just some power hungry man, try to do outreach, organize charity works and livelihood programs, donate and help the poor if you’re really into the Philippines and its people.

P.S: There’s a difference between a politician and a public servant and clearly, BBM is a politician.

Okay, I’m done here. *drops mic*

Thoughts on Marcos and Robredo’s Electoral Protest

Let me just discuss information and express my thoughts about the motion/manifestation that VP Leni Robredo’s camp and former senator Bongbong Marcos’ signed last February 6, 2018.

marcos-robredo-20160524

Former senator Bongbong Marcos challenged VP Leni Robredo and her camp to sign a joint motion in order to hasten and withdraw all motions to clear the way to the recount of votes last 2016 elections after the former senator accused the duly elect vice president of cheating. “I’ve done everything possible to speed up this election protest,” Marcos said in a statement. “At this point, the only thing left is for Mrs. Robredo to sign the document. We are waiting.”

February 6, Tuesday — Atty. Romulo Macalintal, VP Leni Robredo’s election lawyer, responded to Mr. Marcos’ dare. “I am inviting Mr Marcos and his lawyer tomorrow (February 7, 2018) at 9 am to sign a joint motion,” he said. “This is to confirm that we are not causing the delay in the recount of ballots. It is Mr Marcos’ raising of baseless allegations and irrelevant issues that is causing the delay in the recount.”

February 7, 2018, Wednesday — Atty. Romulo Macalintal showed up and presented VP Robredo’s camp’s prepared joint motion to withdraw all motions and acts that may hamper or delay the recount proceedings. The media and people witnessed him sign the motion, however, ex-senator Bongbong Marcos’ camp didn’t show up on the said venue.

BUT don’t you dare think I am not going to mention in this blog post about what Mr. Marcos did that day.

Mr. Marcos showed up earlier that day with a complete set of media. In front of the media, cameras and live videos, he signed a joint manifestation himself. Yes, himself, not his election lawyer, not any representative but himself. If you would remember, VP Robredo’s camp earlier told Marcos to meet them in a restaurant so both camps could sign the joint motion. But the former senator was a no-show on the said venue, hence, he went on another place and on an earlier time.

Moving further, the surprising part here is that Mr. Marcos signed a joint manifestation instead of a joint motion. It’s planting so much questions in my head because to think of it, it was his camp and him who challenged VP Robredo’s camp to sign a motion (not a manifestation) and it would be too farfetch to think they just accidentally filed a manifestation or made a mistake by filing a manifestation instead of a motion. It’s like challenging someone into a boxing fight and you appear to the meeting place with a pair of basketball shoes instead of some boxing gloves, you know what I mean?
