Bungling Maria Leonora Robredo has pulled two American “dog and pony” techniques on the Filipino public much like what the laughable US Senator Marco Rubio and Victoria Nuland’s had recently doused on the Russians.

This happened in a Senate hearing where State Undersecretary Nuland, a former US ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, swore to tell the truthy, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Rubio: “If there’s a biological or chemical weapon incident or attack inside of Ukraine, is there any doubt in your mind that 100% it would be the Russians that would be behind it?”

Nuland: “There is no doubt in my mind, senator, and it is classic Russian technique to blame on the other guy what they’re planning to do themselves.”

For her part, Robredo’s red links and her daughter’s alleged sex video are the analogous settings.

It is on record that last January, the Makabayan bloc announced that they are forming a coalition with Vice President Leni Robredo-Senator Francisco Pangilinan for president and vice-president respectively.

It is likewise on record that the camp of presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo thanked the Makabayan bloc Saturday for its support for the Robredo-Pangilinan tandem, adding that the candidates are willing to work together with the coalition on “common platforms”.

No less than Atty. Ibarra “Barry” Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesman issued a tweet in the vernacular, “Nagpapasalamat si VP Leni at Sen. Kiko sa suportang inihayag ng Koalisyong Makabayan sa kanilang kandidatura. Binubuksan nito ang landas sa mas malalim na pagkakaisa para sa ikabubuti ng sambayanang Pilipino.

(VP Leni and Senator Kiko are thanking the Makabayan Coalition for supporting their candidacy. This opens an avenue for a deeper unity for the good of the Filipino people.)

This an ABS-CBN news report.

In reciprocity, the Robredo group, 1Sambayan, added Neri Colmenares in the Robredo Senate slate for the 2022 elections, as the Robredo group’s 8th candidate,

Koalisyong Makabayan issued a formal statement and acknowledged the parties’ commonalities on issues which should be addressed and solved.

Makabayan, in the statement, said the group and Robredo-Pangilinan tandem have similar approaches in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, contractualization of employees, the franchise issue of ABS-CBN, Philippines’ sovereignty among others.

Red-tagging

The National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), however, stands on solid ground when it identifies members of the Makabayan bloc as fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF).

Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Undersecretary and NTF-ELCAC spokesperson Lorraine Marie Badoy, who is also a lawyer, said

“It’s an old story they use, these high-ranking party members of the CPP-NPA-NDF, and we’re so used to it. By now the Filipino people know when they open their mouths, it’s the same old thing…We do stand on solid ground when we say these things”

She clarified “When I say that, it’s not a personal opinion. It’s the official stand of the NTF-ELCAC which is headed by the President, which is an inter-government agency, which means that we stand on a mountain of evidence when we say something like that,” she said.

Badoy added the NTF-ELCAC has more than 52 years of evidence to back up claims that the Makabayan bloc is indeed a communist front organization and they are there in Congress to further the goals of the CPP-NPA-NDF, a designated terrorist organization,” she added.

“We’re not worried at all because our courts have already spoken loud and clear and over and over. There is no such thing as red-tagging. From the Supreme Court itself. We’ve been brought to court over and over, plenty of times,” she said.

Badoy strongly suggested that so-called “Red-tagging” was created by the CPP-NPA-NDF, a term coined by communists to prevent the government from burning their cover.

“Red-tagging is an invention by the CPP-NPA-NDF that they use to silence those who are going to blow their covers because those CPP-NPA-NDF fronts are so essential to the lifeblood of this terrorist organization,” she added

Disavowals

A little over two months after, in March both Leni Robredo and the Makabayan Bloc were disclaiming each other.

Vice President Leni Robredo had dismissed rumors and text messages claiming she is in an alliance with communist rebels. In a press briefing in Bulacan, Robredo said there is no truth to the supposed alliance that has been floated by Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson and a Cavite congressman.

In a Facebook post, Robredo said people received messages using a fake quote of her supposedly praising CPP founder Jose Maria Sison and implying Sison’s support for the vice president.

Andami daw nakatanggap nito kagabi. Tapos non-stop ang red-tagging sa akin at sa ating volunteers. May paandar pang bubuo daw ako ng coalition government kasama ang CPP-NPA-NDF. Para klaro: kasinungalingan ito,” she said Sunday evening.

(A lot of people received this last night. Then there’s non-stop red-tagging of me and my volunteers. There’s also this claim that I will form a coalition government with the CPP-NPA-NDF. To be clear: these are lies.)

The Communist Party of the Philippines also denied that it has been in talks with any candidate or political party for a coalition government after presidential candidate Lacson warned that the campaign of Robredo may have been infiltrated by communists.

This was an escalation of his red-tagging of Robredo supporters who attended a massive rally in his hometown of Cavite last week, echoing the allegations of Congressman Jesus Crispin Remulla, based on students at the campaign rallies ostebsibly looking like activists.

The pink leader they say is funded by the Americans. Is she also in bed with the communist terrorists?

Aiza Robredo sex scandals

As if her communist links exposed were not enough, this week saw the proliferation of internet sex videos attributed to Leni Robredo’s daughter, Aiza.

In a story filed by Yahoo assistant news editor Nicholas Yong reflecting a GMA report, Vice President Leni Robredo has accused fellow presidential contender Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. of engineering a smear campaign against her daughter Aika.

“Hindi ako nagugulat dahil ito na talaga ang kalakaran noong kalaban simula nu’ng natalo siya noong 2016. Simula noong 2016, inulan na ako ng fake news. Pero hindi ako nababawasan [dahil sa fake news]. Ang nababawasan, iyong napapaniwala niya,” Robredo allegedly told reporters at a campaign stop in Pangasinan.

(I am not surprised because this has always been their ploy since he lost in 2016. Since 2016, I have been peppered with fake news. But such fake news did not decimate me. It only decimates those people who were made to believe the lies.)

Asked if she was referring to Marcos, Robredo responded, “Oo naman. Kasi ginawa na niya ‘yan sa akin noong 2016. Consistently ginagawa ‘yan sa akin nu’ng nag-pick up iyong numbers ko noong 2016 election. Noong hindi pa nagpi-pick up iyong numbers ko, hindi naman ako pinapansin. Nu’ng nag-pick up, nasa receiving end na ako ng lahat ng kasinungalingan.”

(Yes. Because he did the same thing to me in 2016. Consistently he has been doing this to me when my survey numbers picked up during the 2016 election. When my numbers were not picking up, I was unnoticed. When they picked up, I was the target of all the lies.)

Robredo, 56, dismissed links to a supposed sex video of her eldest daughter Aika, 34, began circulating online, as a “malicious fabrication”.

Marcos rebuttal

The camp of presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos slammed the “continuing deception” perpetrated by Robredo regarding her daughter Aika’s purported internet sex videos.

This, as Robredo said that Marcos, also known as BBM on the campaign trail, is the brains behind the proliferation of the fake sex videos of Aika.

Aika and Leni.

Marcos spokesperson Atty. Vic Rodriquez said that Robredo can no longer deceive the Filipino people.

“Mrs. Robredo and her yellow crew can no longer deceive the Filipino people as we have all been awaken from their propaganda of lies, falsehood and politics of deception. In the spirit of lent, I admonish you not to pass on us your brand of fake, hateful, negative and gutter politics,” he said.

“Presidential frontrunner Bongbong Marcos has based his campaign solely on unity anchored on the strengths and merits of his vision and platform for the future of our country, especially the youth that has resonated throughout the land and we shall keep it that away until the very end. Enough of your deceptions,” he added.

Meanwhile, Socrates Villegas, Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan said the link circulating on the Internet purporting to be a sex film of Aika Robredo is a “malicious fake.”

He also advised the vice president’s daughter not to let social media misinformation diminish her desire to help others.

Conclusion

Bungling Robredo never ceases to amaze me.

From her election as vice president that is not beyond reproach, her actuations making her a butt of jokes, to her alleged dalliance with a married man, to a presidential campaign that is so anemic the best performance could not be anything but a poor second, now she plays the chameleon and victimology tactics.

Chameleons are a highly specialized clade lizards known for being able to shift their skins in different hues and brightness. This term is also used to ascribe to politicians who often change their positions regarding public issues.

Victimology, on the other hand, the possession of an outlook, arising from real or imagined victimization, that seems to glorify and indulge the state of being a victim.

Two things about the Aika sex videos – these od hats have existed since 2019.

Second, I also wonder how Soc Villegas is able to call them as fake. Do you have to be a priest or a bishop to have privy to these materials? If he has not viewed it, what is his criterion in saying it was fake.

Robredo’s threat to sue Bongbong Marcos over this issue is a lot of hot air. It is actually the Marcos side that has moral and legal ascendancy to sue her in court for her diarrhea of the mouth.#
