ADO PAGLINAWAN: Bongbong Marcos, not Sara Duterte, should be President in 2022

Sara an unknown quantity

Analysis Paralysis. WHAT IS SO URGENT ABOUT SARA RUNNING FOR 2022 ONLY RUNS FOR PEOPLE PLAYING FAVORITES OUTSIDE OF THE PROPOSED CANDIDATE HERSELF.

I say if you really are for Sara, you would respect her decision and not throw her to the lions at the time when is uncomfortable to fight a fight that will not be yours but her own.

Para kayong mga bata – oh Sara pitikin mo nga sa tenga yan si Isko.

Sabunutan mo nga yang si Leni. Suntukin mo nga yang si Pakyu. Salsalin mo nga yang si Pinky. Gantsohin mo nga yang si Bongbong. I could not understand why you are pitting her for presidency when she is unprepared – SHE IS YET AN UNKNOWN QUANTITY.

What is her stand on the South China Seas, on the Chinese, the Americans now the Australians, and Asean? How will she cure the moribund state of our agricultural economy that her father has turned over to the traders?

How does she propose to turnaround our commercial and industrial economy? Post-pandemic when we need close to create 7 million jobs. I can go on and on and the only reason why the yellows and the oligarchs have taken over the Run-Sara-Run is because she favors opening ABS-CBN – the only stand I know about her on national issues.

For the meantime all the four opposition candidates have positioned themselves, especially in Mindanao in anticipation of her running for the presidency armed with American and oligarchic gold to make sure the Dutertes are routed out in Mindanao that they consider their bailiwick.

THE ONLY TIME I FINALLY CONCLUDED SHE IS MY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN 2028 IS WHEN SHE REFUSED THIS ALMOST FANATICAL DRAFT TO RUN IN 2022. Kilala nya ang sarili nya.

Meron syang diskarteng presidential at meron syang tibay ng kalooban to stand against populist emotionalism. Anak sya ni Digong na calculating ang decision, hindi pabigla-bigla kaya nga tayo ang nabibigla dahil hindi sya tradpol na karamihan sa atin.

In fact she is made of even sturdier stuff than her father – she is half German afterall!

Aba do you know what it takes to say no to accolade of almost thunderous clamor, especially among women voters. Ang daming nasira dyan, una na sina Isko, Pinky, Pakyu at Leni.

Not Sara.

Her ultimate show of humility is that she knows Bongbong Marcos will best the country starting next year. Bansa ang inisip nya, hindi ang kanyang sarili. Hindi ba iyan ang unang tinuro ni Digong sa kanya about public service?

KUNG TUNAY NA MAHAL NINYO SI SARA – IGALANG NINYO ANG DECISION NYA.

Patapusin nyo ang last three years nya bilang meyor ng Davao para ma-proteksyonan nya at palakasin pa ang Duterte foothold sa Mindanao, patakbuhin nyo sya na senador sa 2025 at pangulo sa 2028.

Serafin Ledesma JrAdo, i suggest you just stick to your own agenda. With the way you appraise Davao City Mayor Inday Sara, it is so obvious that you know very little of her. The reason why BongBong and even Imee developed a bond of friendship, Imee in particular, is on account of their mutual respect of their political stand, knowledge of geopolitical matters and dedication to public service.Leave Balanza and the rest to their own …as you say “analysis”. This is a free country. Cool it man.

Balanza Montano Rogelio Sr.Ado Paglinawan Nice piece Ado. Your convulted assessment of Mayor Inday Sara, her politics and the 2022 presidential election; and yur dislike for Inday Sara to become the next President spiced up by your disregard of the voices of the millions of Filipinos who support that direction for Inday Sara, confirms what I had long ago confirmed: Ado is a reincarnation of the much-hated late president Ferdinand Marcos, sent down to earth by Satan, to help the son become president to be able to subject the nation into more suffering as in the days of the cruel dictator. What a shame!

MARCOS supporters behind “emergency alert” sent out as Bongbong filed COC for president

NDRRMC denies sending ‘alert’

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) denied involvement in the dissemination of an alleged emergency warning when former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent in Pasay City on Wednesday.

“We wish to clarify that the NDRRMC does not issue this type of message for distribution to the public through our telco (telecommunications) partners. Our usage of the emergency mobile alerts system only follows the prescription of RA (Republic Act) 10639 or the Free Mobile Disaster Alerts Law which requires that warning messages must be hazard-specific, time-bound, and area-specific,” NDRRMC deputy spokesperson Mark Cashean Timbal said in a message to reporters.

Members of the media who were covering the sixth day of the COC filing period received the alert message when Marcos arrived at the filing venue. Read More

BONGBONG MARCOS to run for president in 2022

By ROGER M. BALANZA

Shouts of “Never Again!” reverbearted throughout the Phlippines as the son of a late dictator that ruled the country with an iron hand for more than two decades announced he was running for president in the 2022 elections.

Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. on Tuesday, October 5, said he was taking a crack at the presidency that President Rodrigo Duterte will vacate when his term ends next year.

Bongbong is the son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. whose decades of martial rule was ended 35 years ago by the People Power Revoluton of 1986.

Bongbong, who lost in the 2016 vice presidential race against Vice President Leni Robredo , declared his bid in a recorded video published on Facebook.

The son of the late dictator, whose rule until today is being hounded for rampant human rights violations and grand thievery by Filipinos especially victims of martial law, says he will “bring that form of unifying leadership back to our country.”

Bongbong was expected to file his Certificate of Candidacy (COC) before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) any day on or efore the October 8 deadlune for filing. Three presidential hopefuls have already filed their COC: Senator Panfilo Lacson, Senator Manny Pacquiao and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

A leading contender, presidentail daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is not seeking the presidency and has filed for her reelection. But speculations are rife she may drop her mayoral bid and file a new COC for president.

DICTATOR’S SON wants to be the next President of the Philippines

Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., the son of the late dictator President Ferdinand Marcos has been endorsed by the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL ) as its presidential candidate in next year’s elections.

MARCOS CENTRALIZED IT: He DECIDED WHO CAN STEAL WITH IMPUNITY AMONG HIS OFFICIALS AND CRONIES, BUT He MADE SURE He GOT THE LION'S SHARE. He STOLE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT TO THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.'

The 64-year-old Marcos lost the vice presidential race in 2016 to Vice President Leni Robredo and protested the results claiming he was cheated.

Marcos’ protest had been junked by the Supreme Court.

A coalition of victims of martial law expressed disgust at the possible presidential bid of Marcos.

“Bongbong’s run is a mad attempt for the Marcoses to return and restore their power and rule on a country pillaged and violated during Marcos’ martial law,” the Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law (Carmma) said in a statement.

The group said Marcos’ political positioning was meant “to further evade accountability for their crimes, and to promote the historical lies that they have perpetuated.”

“It is also a form of direct support for Duterte’s continuation of his murderous rule, with the Marcoses serving as among his closest allies throughout his administration ridden with countless allegations of extrajudicial killings and other human rights violations, corruption and anti-people governance, and subservience to foreign interests,” Carmma said.
