Imee says Marcoses unfazed by moves to block Bongbong's presidential run

Bongbong Marcos ' family is unfazed by protests seeking to take him out of the 2022 presidential race, his sister said.

Sen. Imee Marcos said their family, including matriarch, former First Lady Imelda Romualdez-Marcos, is used to such situations during their long exposure to politics. “Sa buong pamilya namin ang pinaka-pulitiko yung nanay ko. Siya rin ang pinakamabait, hindi nagagalit 'yon, kaya umabot ng 92 years old. Sabi nya, ‘Wala ganyan, talaga. Siguro sikat ka (Bongbong),” the senator said. 

(In our whole family, my mother is the most politically exposed. She is also the kindest, she does not get mad, which is why she reached 92 years old. She said, 'That's the way it is. Perhaps you are popular.) “Sabihin na nating par for the course. Hindi bago ng tumatakbo ka lumalabas ang kung ano-anong banat sa 'yo. 'Yong iba, totoo, 'yong iba hindi. Ganyan talaga, tiisan… Sobrang tagal na sa pulitika, ganoon talaga eh, ganyan talaga 'pag kampanya, katakot-takot na batikos, katakot-takot din naman ang papuri. Kaya dapat balance ka lang lagi,” she added.

(Let us say it is far from the course. It's not new, when you run, various tirades will surface against you. Some true, other are not. That's the way it is, tolerate it. We have been in politics for so long, that's just they way it is during campaigns, there are many criticisms, many praises. You should always be balanced.) headtopics.com

At least 6 protests have been lodged to sideline Marcos, a career politician and son and namesake of the dictator who was driven from power by a 1986 people's uprising.One petition by activists is centered on his 1995 conviction for failing to pay income tax or file tax returns while in public office from 1982 to 1985, which carries a lifetime election ban.

Watch more on iWantTFC "He was the son of the ruling dictator, the same dictator who imposed the penalty of perpetual disqualification," the 13-page petition said.The group was referring to a 1985 amendment to the internal revenue code permanently barring a public officer convicted of a tax crime from voting and running in any election.

"Perhaps he thought he was an exception to his father's decrees," the petition said.The Marcos family is arguably the most famous political family in recent history. Despite its fall from grace, it has retained vast wealth and far-reaching and powerful connections, but its prominence has been a cause of anger to thousands who suffered during the 1970s martial law under the elder Marcos.

“Haharapin nya (Bongbong) ang bawat isa,” Imee said of the petitions.(He will face each one.) Since his conviction, Marcos, 64, has been elected governor, congressman and senator and ran unsuccessfully for the vice presidency.

From RTC to SC: Bongbong Marcos’ tax casesAs modified by the CA, Marcos was acquitted of violations of Section 50 of the NIRC for non-payment of deficiency taxes for taxable years 1982 to 1985 as it reversed and nullified the prison terms imposed on Marcos by the RTC. May discrepancy yung resibo ni Bobong mo. Ang petsa ng resibo'ng bayad sa Land Bank ay December 2001, tapos ang sulat na pagpapatunay (certification letter) gasling sa lawyers ni Bobong ay inulat sa pecha January 2001. Ano 'to LOKOHAN? Yung resibo eh peke! Talagang pati media nakikitulong pabagsakin si Marcos Jr. So kasuhan si BBM dahil mali ang petsa ng certification? To file a case on that basis is of comic proportion. Ludicrous. Come on.

FALSE: Nostradamus predicts Bongbong Marcos will lead Philippines in 2022FactCheck: Nostradamus never mentioned 'pearl of the orient seas' in his book of prophesies. There is no historical record of anyone using that term until 1751, almost two centuries years after Nostradamus’ prophesies. As far as I know! All predictions of Nostradamus are tragedy! Dreadful! And always ravaged! If He predicted Bongnong M. Ag naku! Wag sana! Galae alarm to! Not another yellow or pink, haha. US puppets. Waiting parin po kami sa Drug Test ni Leni. Anong Petsa na!!!!!! 🤣

Roque on BBM: Di po naging diktador si Bongbong MarcosSenatorial candidate Harry Roque said Monday he did his due diligence by examining the cases of his presidential bet Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr and found no evidence linking him to the dictatorship of his father. Great Ayan na ang mga balita ng biased media. Kahit ano pang gawin niyo hindi na bababa ang survey rating ni BBM. Si Roque kung d man manalo malamang may pwesto pa rin yan sa gobyerno. Pero isa siya sa mga nakinabang. According to the Court's decision regarding Imelda's conviction, various overseas accounts are under his and his sisters' name. Pakibalik na lang po, patunay na sincere public servant ka 😅.

Roque: Marcos Jr. ‘not evil’ but would be better if he apologizes for martial law atrocitiesRoque, a human rights lawyer who backed efforts for the indemnification of martial law victims during the Marcos regime, said Marcos Jr. is not included in cases against the Marcoses in cases of ill-gotten wealth, saying “it’s mostly his parents.” Read: Eto pa ang isa...hahaha. super balimbing laos ka na ghorl attyharryroque. kahit anong gawin mong drama at pag sipsip, wala ka pa ring boto na maaasahan.. kauri mo si IskoMoreno .. hunyango at trapo. Gusto lng ng ingay hehr
