THE $10 billion Question: What Happened to the Marcos Millions?

I have included this article by Nick Davies, published in the Guardian, Saturday 7th May 2016 because it is never too late for Marcos fans to "see the light". Sadly though I am sure they won't even bother to read it because they know they will not like the truth. They will simply rationalize this and … Continue reading THE $10 billion Question: What Happened to the Marcos Millions?

ESSAY FROM A FORMER MARCOS LOYALIST

I am posting this by a former Marcos loyalist as I think it adds weight to the discussion on this site.  I grew up in a somewhat Marcos loyalist family. My late lola used to keep a portrait of the Marcos family on her old and bulky radio in her room. And as far as … Continue reading ESSAY FROM A FORMER MARCOS LOYALIST

IMELDA HAS A $829 BILLION IDEA TO SAVE THE WORLD

I have decided to publish this article by Norman Pearlstine from October 2013 because it demonstrates quite clearly that Imelda hasn't changed.

Ateneo professors to Bongbong Marcos: Stop ‘distortion of history’

I have included this article, sent to me by Myles Garcia, author of "Thirty Years Later", as I strongly believe the Philippine education system has betrayed the youth of today by glossing over or ignoring completely the abuses and excesses of the Marcos era. It is this wholesale “rewriting” of history that has sadly allowed … Continue reading Ateneo professors to Bongbong Marcos: Stop ‘distortion of history’

IMELDA MARCOS ATTENDS CHURCH

Talk about poetic justice. Imelda Marcos attended Church this week thinking it would be a normal service. Turns out it was a memorial service for the victims of her husband's brutal martial law regime. Torture, kidnap and murder victims were remembered in the ceremony on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Edsa (People's … Continue reading IMELDA MARCOS ATTENDS CHURCH

Philippines revalues jewellery seized from Imelda Marcos in 1986

I decided to reprint this article from the Guardian because I think many Filipinos, especially young ones who will be voting for the first time this year, may not be aware of the excesses of the Marcoses during martial law. Not even Royalty with their inherited jewels can compete with some of these pieces that … Continue reading Philippines revalues jewellery seized from Imelda Marcos in 1986
