Leni Robredo’s claim to the Philippine vice presidency remains questionable to this day

The battle to extract the truth about electoral fraud that marred the 2016 Philippine Presidential Elections drags on because presumptive “vice president” Leni Robredo continues to hinder progress in the investigation. Without going into the details of the case (all of which is publicly-available, save for the facts of those who argue that no fraud had transpired), it is easy to see why a probe into electoral fraud should err on the side of those who allege it occurred.

No Filipino will argue that election cheating never occurred in any Philippine election since independence in 1946. All political camps had, at one time or another, lodged strong complaints of electoral fraud over the last several decades. As such, the position that the possibility of cheating happening in 2016 is utterly ludicrous held by the Liberal Party camp of Robredo is, itself, ludicrous.

Indeed, it is highly-suspect of the camp of Robredo to so quickly brush aside fraud allegations. The onus, in fact, should be on the presumed winner of an election to call for an investigation on allegations of electoral fraud in the election she “won”. The principle at work there (at least for most normal people) is that nobody wants to win a rigged contest. That’s just cheating one’s self. Unfortunately for Filipinos, their politicians’ goals are to win elections at any cost — even if the cost involves compromising the integrity of the very system of government that they seek to be part of.

As such, it is very difficult to believe Philippine Opposition “influencers” who publicly espouse “democratic” ideals. It is because their highest-profile government official at the moment, “vice president” Leni Robredo, refuses to respond properly to challenges to the legitimacy of the office she currently clings to. It does not help her either that she is the presumptive “vice president” only because government officials allied with the Liberal Party in the twilight of their hold on power played the what-are-we-in-power-for card and arbitrarily voided a Commission on Elections (COMELEC) rule that Robredo and her party violated which, in turn, would have disqualified her from holding office.

In short, Robredo’s claim to the vice presidency is tainted at two points — (1) the very likely possibility that fraud occurred in 2016 and (2) the dishonest manner with which she circumvented COMELEC rules she had clearly violated. She has been reduced to a sad punchline and is, as a result, ineffectual and a waste of precious taxpayers’ funds. It is baffling how Liberal Party lackeys in corporate media and the noisy clique of social media “influencers” they give generous airtime to and exchange high-fives with in quaint soireees can screech about “fake news” when the biggest fake news of all — Leni Robredo as “Vice President” — is staring them in the face.

It is quite a tall ask of the shills that make up the traditional cadre of “activists” and the clique of disente “influencers” that have climbed into bed with them to scrape the OA emotionalism that coats their rhetoric and face the truth. As had been revealed in that viral study, Filipinos are confident purveyors and propagators of their own ignorance — a cultural trait that lends itself well to exploitation by such shills who monopolise the proverbial big megaphones in the the Philippines’ information dissemination infrastructure. In Leni Robredo is encapsulated the very cultural archetype that mirrors the sad society-wide predisposition to believe in seductive myths rather than think through facts systematically.

Just accept your country is a corrupt hellhole with no noticeable legal system. Nothing is going to change even with the election of so called savior presidents.

Accepted. I’m actually planning of moving to Norway for a better quality of life and less corruption.

You are very smart, NORWAY is the best country in the world to live in! North Western Europe has the rest of the planet beat by a really long way !!!

Less corruption is still corruption. That is so hypocritical.

Well you’re not mistaken but I would be more hypocritical if I claimed that Norway has “no corruption”. Absolute zero corruption of any form in any country is unheard of. At least they obviously have less corruption there than this cesspool. Nothing is perfect but Scandinavian countries are close to it, you know if you love happiness, freedom, breathtaking scenery, the northern lights, low crime, high wages, equality and ultra fast internet.

In what capacity will you move to Norway? As immigrant? Is it that easy to move to Norway?

SNODAX

To tell you the truth its difficult to move to Norway and land a nice paying job and settling there for good if you don’t know the Norwegian language (its the key one), did not achieve at least a Bachelors degree or better duh and work experience of course. but hey don’t take my word for it. http://mylittlenorway.com/2009/10/how-to-get-a-job-in-norway/
I want to go there as an experienced skilled worker (immigrant worker) as you can guess I’m currently studying/learning the language. https://www.udi.no/en/

You better hurry up, with all the rag-heads coming into Europe from Syria and the Northern Tip of Afreeka, they are going to close the borders !!

It’s your choice. Do you want to be a 2nd class citizen in “less corrupt” Norway or a 1st class citizen in “more corrupt” Philippines? But if you consider yourself a 2nd class citizen in your own country, then I rest my case. I’m glad, though, that you recognise that migrating to Norway as a skilled worker is no piece of cake.

My choice go to someplace that I would be treated much worst than here? No never. Since ill be adapting their culture cases of discrimination will surely hit rock bottom.

Sure buddy I want to be a “1st class” citizen on $20 per day. Give me a break

Classic crab mentality, Adrian. What does “class” have to do with it? In any case, anyone living in the Philippines is condemned to a third-class life, mainly by those around him. SNODAX wants a better life for himself. Do you honestly think Norwegians will consider him “second class” because he’s a foreigner, the same way Pinoys look down on “lesser races”? Filipinos employed abroad find themselves in menial jobs because that’s all they aspire to. I know two or three who are extremely successful, highly respected professionals … but they got there because they WANTED it. Most Filipinos just don’t… Read more »

Until after the PET had finished the recount of the Vice President votes, and see who really wins; i will never respect the fake vp Leni Robredo. The electoral protest of Sen. BBMarcos is to give justice to the people who voted for BBM.

so thats it, a MARCOS is paying to have these articles written, OK, it all makes sense now…two articles like this in less than two weeks, I thought something was up.
The Philippines needs another MARCOS like they need another ARROYO…..or AQUINO or ESTRADA, get it through YOUR THICK FRIKKIN SKULLS: THEY ARE ALL THIEVES !!!

Your incessant, obnoxious bias over one tainted surname makes you totally contract yourself. Try to connect the dots.

What the fuck this article is? You are racing ahead of the decision of the Supreme Court. Who do you think you are?! You have plenty of allegations without enough proof and merit to back-up your claim. No science and logic. It cannot stand in the court of law. Your style is the same as those enthusiasts of conspiracy theories. All I can see is a complete regurgitated sentiments of those losers in the vice-presidential bid who cannot respect and accept defeat under the Philippine democracy. For the information of everyone, you have the same flawed thinking with your bitchy… Read more »

Says the actual hypocritical Yellowtard troll who always thought that ad hominem and personal attacks are the only way to go because he’s scared of making a coherent argument.

You better stop TROLLING on this site and take your own filthy shit to somewhere else. Perhaps Pinoy Ako Blog is the perfect place for ya. Both you and Jover Laurio are disgusting.

Leni Robredo is a phony and fake Vice President. She was placed there, thru 2016 Smartmatic and Hocus PCos cheating , by the Aquino Cojuangco political axis. The bribery of former COMELEC Chairman Andres Bautista is glaring. He has millions of pesos deposits on various accounts in foreign banks. Bautista is now enjoying his loot. The operation of the SMARTMATIC machine, was compromised. It was in operation to cheat, to count/transfer the votes of Bong bong Marcos, Jr. to Leni Robredo. The Aquino Cojuangco political axis was hoping that the Extra Judicial Killing charge, against Pres. Duterte, would remove him.… Read more »

I love how emo-turds like PInoy Citizen (more like “YELLOW Citizen”) are utterly triggered about this. The point of this article is about Leni Robredo’s vice-presidency being questionable. But if you ask me, one of the reasons is the electoral fraud that happened last elections; especially what happened in my late father’s home province in Basilan where my relatives had experienced that kind of crap. Not to mention that former Comelec chairman Andy Bautista possibly had a hand on this. It’s amusing how these kind of people would react made me go thinking: are these guys would tolerate any kind… Read more »

Claiming that you are what you are not will obscure the strengths you do have while destroying your credibility.
