The question Comelec must answer

48

I pose the question as gently as possible to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and Leni Robredo, who is itching for coronation as vice-president-elect in the May 9 elections.

The question is this:
“If, as already established, Smartmatic can insert a command into the automated election system that will instruct it to change every question mark (?) into an “ñ”, does it not logically follow that Smartmatic could also instruct the system to change a Marcos vote into a Robredo vote at particular points or times of the vote count?”

The answer is unavoidably “yes, it can,” under the rules of logic and computer systems.

I shall watch eagerly how Andy Bautista will wrestle with this question before bowing to its unassailable logic.


In my house, there are two people who understand computer programming (my wife is a programmer, my son worked as an executive with computers), and they assure me that my question is valid. Computers are highly logical and obedient.

Comelec and Smartmatic could also have cheated Duterte of victory. But the administration feared the turmoil and upheaval that would have followed. The people would never accept a Roxas victory. Even the crooked and unbalanced BS Aquino cringed from this final solution.

BS was more eager for a scorched-earth policy toward Bongbong.

Why two counts in our democracy?
Foreign observers, including members of the diplomatic community, cannot comprehend why the Philippines has two vote counts in its elections, one official and another unofficial.

The United States, United Kingdom, France, Australia, and other modern democracies have only one election count—the official tally of votes. Candidates wait only for this count to either claim victory or concede defeat.

Not one of them has anything resembling the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).

My explanation for the presence of the PPCRV in our election process is that it is a throwback to the time when the results of our national elections took an agonizing time to complete. We had to compensate by creating quick-count operations.

When the country adopted an automated election system in 2010, Comelec unthinkingly continued the quick-count system, which became a redundancy after results could be known on election day.

Comelec has not offered one sensible reason for accrediting a watchdog in the 2016 elections. Does it not trust itself to be honest and fair?

Bongbong Marcos is no fool
Asking Bongbong Marcos to concede based on a dubious count is like asking him to apologize for his father.

Both demands have no basis in fact and in law. He cannot accede to either without being scorned as a fool.

Marcos is indubitably correct when he says that the entire electoral process was placed under a cloud of doubt after the Commission on Elections revealed that the hash codes of the transparency server were tweaked in the early hours of vote counting on May 9.

Instead of being alarmed, Comelec Chairman Andy Bautista downplayed the breach, saying it will have no bearing on the results.

No bearing? This makes him complicit in the irregularity.

Smoking gun of election fraud    
I think Senator Marcos is too gentlemanly to ask the tough question I asked above, which destroys the no-harm-no-foul defense of Comelec and Smartmatic.

There is an instructive article on one website (www.thinkingpinoy.net), which successfully explains to a computer amateur like me what happened when Smartmatic altered the hash codes.

The piece is entitled: “BBM vs Leni: Forget Math, Hash Code is the Smoking Gun.”

The author patiently reconstructs everything that happened on the evening of May 9, based on a line-by-line analysis of Comelec-Smartmatic’s linux commands to the system.

Understanding a few simple concepts is in order here:

1. Our computers use Windows or MacOS as its operating system.

2. Comelec-Smartmatic, on the other hand, uses Linux as its operating system.

3. The PPCRV count began right after voting precincts closed at 5 p.m. of May 9. BBM led the race by a wide margin for the first couple of hours and BBM supporters thought he would never have to look back. In a surprising twist, however, Leni slowly inched closer and finally overtook BBM in the early morning of May 10.

4. BBM accused Leni of cheating. Leni accused BBM of bitterness. It was one side’s word against the other… until a PPCRV IT expert blew the whistle that a Smartmatic technician tampered with the Comelec transparency server.

5. Based on the whistleblower’s disclosures, the Comelec Transparency Server used two different programs: one before 8 p.m., May 9, and another after that.

6. The IT expert explained the extent of the Venezuelan technicians’s breach of security:

“The Smartmatic IT expert’s job was only to ‘receive, decrypt and distribute’ the files. He introduced a new script, a new computer program and commands that could alter everything and supersede the existing program.”

Claiming victory on dubious grounds
Leni Robredo’s preemptive claim of victory depends entirely on the PPCRV count, which in turn is wholly based on the PPCRV transparency server. She must face the reality that the server is the one that Smartmatic tampered with.

Who but the most naïve would claim victory based on an unofficial count and under suspicious circumstances?

Her position has been undercut by Mr. Duterte’s two-fisted declaration yesterday that he will not accept victory on questionable grounds.

Robredo is obviously no Duterte.

Since Smartmatic tampering affected only the PPCRV transparency server, and did not cover also the official certificates of canvass (COC), it is reasonable to expect that the official canvass will produce a result different from the PPCRV count.

This is already showing in the results from the overseas voting, which have been tallied separately by the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC), and have shown a decisive win by Bongbong over Robredo, by a margin of two to one.

Here then lie salvation for the May 9 elections, and victory for the truly deserving. For the winners by fraud, a change of occupation may be the only option.

  1. Investigate this case thoroughly and who ever is found guilty should immediately be put to jail along with all the people behind this electoral sabotage. And a recount should be done in order to determine who really won as Vice President.

  2. May I also ask, what was the 3 items deposited at the Banco Sentral ng Pilipinas that was supposed to protect the integrity of the election from crooks and no less than the COMELEC Chairman Andy Bautista said that ” it would be very impossible to cheat in the elections, unless, all of us Filipinos connived and become blind and allowed this cheating to happen.” I thought that those 3 items should have to be accessed for somebody to get into the systems of the comelec counting machines. Now it is not so as shown by the smartmatic engineers did it.

  3. Oo nga naman. Bakit nila pinalitan iyong hash code na wala namang incident report at dahilan para dapat nilang palitan? National Election is a very sensitive event affecting the whole country and the lives of the Filipino people. Siyempre, it’s very suspicious and makes us wonder what’s going on? Anong bang kababalaghang nangyayari? If you changed the program or script of the server of votes counting machines, there’s a great probability that the rule of the election had changed right in the middle of election canvassing which is totally not acceptable without justifiable explanation. Lalong Lalo na, patago nilang ginawa.

    What they had done most probably had tainted the result of the election. Obviously, it creates a cloud of suspicion in the minds of the Filipino people. Lalong lalo na PCOS machines can be easily hacked. Ito panoorin niyo ang video na ito showing how PCOS machines can be easily hacked.

    PCOS machines can be easily Hacked – Beware!!!

  4. It is no-brainer. Of course, Filipinos cannot just take and accept, hook, line and sinker, the word of Smartmatic, PPCRV and Comelec that the results of the vote tally or canvassing were not touched in spite of the fact that they secretly changed the hash codes or script or program of the transparency server.

    If you changed the program or script of a computer machine, there’s a probability that the counting of votes or the rule of canvassing were changed right in the middle of the game which is totally not allowable and acceptable. Lalong Lalo na, patago nilang ginawa at ilang beses na nilang ginawa sa tatlong nakaraaang elections. Kaya talagang alam na nilang hindi dapat nilang gawin ulit ito pero ginawa pa rin nila. Kaya nararapat lamang na mananagot sila ngayon sa kanilang ginawa.

    Obviously, they had again created a cloud of suspicion in the minds of the Filipino people. What they had done certainly had tainted the result of the election again. Hindi na natin dapat na palalampasin pa uli ito. We are tired and sick already of this kind of unreliable elections using smartmatic machines and wasting billions of people’s money.

    In the first place, bakit nila pinalitan iyong hash code na wala namang incident report at dahilan para dapat nilang palitan at patago pa. Ang masaklap ay hindi lang minsan nilang ginawa ito. Ginawa na nila noong nakaraang elections. Hindi na sila nadala. Dapat tayong mga Filipinos ay dala na sa kanilang kalokohang ginagawa, di po ba?

    National Election is a very sensitive event affecting the whole country and the lives of the Filipino people. Kaya nga tayo gumagastos ng billions pagkatapos ay palagi na lang tayong niloloko? Kung palagi na lang patago nilang ginawa ang pagbabago ng computer program, ibig sabihin ay may kababalaghan silang ginagawa kaya ayaw nilang malaman ng iba, di po ba? Siyempre, it’s very suspicious and makes us wonder what’s going on? Anong bang kababalaghang nangyayari? Obviously, it creates a cloud of suspicion in the minds of the Filipino people. Lalong lalo na PCOS machines can be easily hacked by merely changing the hash codes or program or script of the computer.

    When they changed the hash codes of the transparency server, who knows what exactly they had done? IT experts should be allowed to examine the transparency server to know exactly what this Venezuelan guy had done. Kung ayaw nila, nararapat lamang na ipaglalaban na ng mga Filipinos ang kanilang karapatan, di po ba? Ang mamamayang Filipinos ang dapat na masunod. Once and for all, Filipinos should find out if there’s really cheating going on every time we have an election. And if there’s cheating, we should find out all the people involved especially the masterminds of cheating and bring them all to justice. Dapat ay managot sila sa mamamayang Filipinos. Ito panoorin niyo ang video na ito kung papaano sila puwedeng mandaya sa mga PCOS machines

    PCOS machines can be easily hacked in order to cheat. Beware!!!

  5. What a shame should it proven that there was cheating during the election for vp. This could be part of the pnoy plan b. Shame shame pnoy aquino

  6. 50% of voters are 18-34 yrs. old. They have ZERO recollection of what took place during those troubled times. All they have ia disinformation and proganda through social media. Shame on the Gov’t and the parents for not teaching the horrors of the past. The other 50% plus has spoken. NEVER AGAIN.

  7. emmanuel mallari jr on

    why not run the previous script with question mark, the original program and count the votes again based on the order they made the count on that faithful day and time (evening of May 9 until Leni overtook bongbong around 3am). then change the script to “enye” and run the same votes in the same order and see if there is any discrepancy. madugo kasi ang forensic audit investigation as they have to go through line-by-line of the programs.

  8. BOBONG MARCOS supporters are ignorant. pre-mature and baseless accusations. big losers are always protesting never to give up. BBM is the only candidate who is complaining and protesting the result of the polls. he did not win on the SOLID SOUTH who outnumbered the myth SOLID NORTH.

    losers dies many times but honest winners die once.

  9. Please be informed that PPCRV is the crooks in this election. They are the NAMFREL before iwho also cheated FEM during Snap election 1986. Dont trust this institution, as this is the pakawala ng mga dilawang elitista.Kaya nadaya na nmn si BBM dahil nandito na nmn pala itong ..Dont let this group to join esp. when there is an election. With the regards, to the issue of hash tags, has been change by the smartmatic personnel without information from the comelec, that is unlawful act. They cheated BBM, thru tampering or typing another symbols in the computer. For your information, computer was started in 1985 which is only DOS is the operating system. (Disk Operating System). When you started study computer, during that time, that all symbols, sign, letter, command , F1 F2, F3 etc, that you see in your keyboard are all COMPUTER LANGUAGE… Without this computer language, you cannot create a program or system. Every signs, symbols, command of the computer is the key and the brain of the programs you made. You may ask the programmer. How do they create and start to make a programs. They will start at DOS, even we are now at digital age. Programmers cannot create programs without these COMPUTER LANGUAGE. This is the brain of the computer program, all symbols, signs you can see in your KEY BOARD on your desk top or lap top, has the meaning for the programmer. The programmer is the one who assigned the signs, symbols for what is that..system.
    Definitely Smartmatic cheated BBM not only BBM but the whole candidates as well by changing the hash codes in the middle of transmission of ballots. Leni should not be allowed to become the VP of our country. Shame on her…and to PPCRV

  12. let me cut to the chase mr.makabenta. if leni should be proclaimed as vp & plan b is commenced by the yellow dietards then the bloody revolution that digong warned about is just around the corner. i didn’t vote for either leni or bbm but the voice of the people must be heard. comulec must start cleaning up its act or heads will roll under our new “mayor of the philippines”.

  13. The answer is we are blinded by the IT Expert the good things a smoke come out of it.The election result was tampered…When it tampered ,it is doubtful.That all.In short nobody knows now who is the real winner of this election.That all.

  14. I agree with your point about why the need for two countings one unofficial by PPCRV and the other official by COMELEC. As conceded by PPCRV head de Villa a variance in the results of the counts will only sow confusion so why are there two countings when the election is already automated and results come fast. I seem to understand that the tampering was done only on the server of PPCRV and so the tampering will not affect the official COMELEC count so that there that any discrepancy will be explained by this circumstance. But why does PPCRV have its exclusive server and what for is quick count when COMELEC will anyway make an “official count” anyway which will over rule the PPCRV count which does not tally. There is one possible reason I see and it is this, the PPCRV count is a public conditioning for the eventual manipulation of the official count they can say later that look our official count and the unofficial count are the same so any claim of cheating in the official count has no basis. Clever indeed.

  15. “The basic problem lies in yhe reliability of the software installed in the electronic voting machines, which needs to be bug-free, and also immune to improper modification by ill-intentioned specialists with access privileges.
    Some years ago, it was thought that software could be validated merely by the inspection of its source code by external auditors, but, in a famous article published in 1984, Ken Thompson, already famous as one of the inventors of the Unix operating system,
    explained how the security of a software component could be undermined by the installation
    of a Trojan horse, without any modification of the source code” ( http://www.acm.org/classics/

    Well said, what is the meaning of the n, ?. what do they represent… these are codes that represent something…like the genetic code…it causes mutation…a minor change or a compete alteration of instruction…..what is happening is an insult to many…treating the experts like…the truth will come out, when the code is decoded, the fingerprint of the thieves will be revealed…through DNA……..

  17. Winner by fraud is a devil victory. Nobody knows someday all the vampires will dispose and committed a crime. Repentant always at the back.

  18. “The question Comelec must answer” seems to obviously be your grasping at hollow straws to try to support your evidently losing proclamation of a Golden Age for Marcos.

    Here’s a refresh of what you wrote in your February ‘King Canute” column:

    ….
    “Who will have the last word? Noynoy Aquino or Bongbong Marcos?
    Will the tide obey President Aquino and turn away from Bongbong?
    Or will the tide keep surging forward, soak Aquino’s feet in water, and carry
    Bongbong to victory in May?
    I’ve seen and covered too many of these political contests not to know
    where the wind is blowing, and when the writing is on the wall.
    Come May 9, the Filipino King Canute (BS Aquino) will discover that his feet are
    wet.
    And Bongbong Marcos will wake up to a morning, knowing that his time has
    indeed come. ”

    Oh how wind blowing prophetic you were. BS Aquino must be smiling broadly and flashing his mother’s trademark two handed V for victory sign – as is Robredo.

    Pre the official canvass by NBOC, you say that a decisive win for Bongbong is being indicated by the overseas voters by a margin of two to one. Here you jump to false conclusions. Most overseas voters are probably from northern Luzon/Ilocos region and Manila – bastions of Marcos support. So the overseas vote tally would be a highly misleading or an inaccurate indicator of the entire electorate’s choices when it comes to Marcos.

    Your proclamation of a golden age for Marcos and the writing being on the wall is now laughable and your biased non-rigorous questioning undermines any respect you may have on this issue. Bongbong represent the Philippines past – one of excesses of brutal rule, kleptocracy, extravagance under his father and mother. As much as you and a significant number of Filipinos in Marcos strongholds are hoping for another golden age of Marcos an even greater number of the electorate either does not want a return of Marcos and/or are compelled by Robredo. Leni Robredo, a lioness for the poor who borrowed the widower playbook from Cory, represents the future and what the Philippines is looking forward to.

    Any clouds of doubt from this election will soon evaporate and be forgotten once the official count showing a Robredo win for Vice President.
    There is really not much room for Marcos to credibly protest the vote after Congress declares Robredo the winner. Any Marcos led protest has a credibility problem because of his families ill-gotten wealth and brutal rule which the Marcoses are not owning up to. In the end this entire controversy will blow over like a dustbin into the winds of history because the presidency was the real office that voters cared about and now that the presidency has been won by a landslide the vice presidential race is basically an afterthought. Duterte will accept the NBOC’s findings in it’s canvass because he will have determine that the previously questionable grounds will have been adequately addressed.

    The era of BBMarcos will remain in the past – and the writing is clearly on the electorate wall.

    • maria w. gjerdet on

      Marcos Era will not remain in the past..it exists and still will exist..just look at Ilocos region
      to remind you what Marcoses can do.

    • Not the end of the Marcoses, BBM’kids will surely slug out again in the future vs Kris’ Joshua or the Aquino sisters kids.Abangan….palaos Na mga Aquino’s but the Marcoses…still have lots of batteries left…Smart and guapings vs Kris Tulo kids…

    • this is no longer the fight of Marcos and Aquino but the figfht of good and evil, no longer about martial law or human rights because this has been lost long time ago after the EDSA 1,, this is the fight of the majority who suffer now and then for corruption and the people are not blind to see the corruption going on now with this administration,,, the fight of the truth will prevail, God still in control,,, we will rally on what is right and the evil will never again continue its will to destroy this nation progress and greatness, prayer and faith will stand victor over evil ways,,, Marcos the true lover and builder of nation will win over evil,,, his love and passion to serve will not be trampled with the evil schemes ,,,prayer can move mountains of evil, God’s will be done to this nation a prayer of many ,,,

    • Maribel Calanda on

      As the newscaster and journalist Erwin Tulfo mentioned, Marcos legacy is all around us. EDSA, OH what beautiful EDSA we have during the time of President Marcos, San Juanico Bridge, NLEX and SLEX, the Philippine Heart Center, the Lung Center and the Kidney Institute and many more. Who other president has built an infrastracture like Marcos? Cory and Panot has altogether 12 years but has built none. Fidel Ramos has built the infamous Expo City with billions and lose money on it. You are ignorant of what you are saying. The writing on the electorate wall says BBM won, Imelda and Imee Marcos both won in the election. Now a Marcos is still very much around us and they are revered now more than ever.

    • Amnata Pundit on

      It seems you are the one grasping at straws to stop a Marcos resurgence…you might as well try to stop a new day from dawning..the hypocrites of this yellow regime are on the way out..

    • The era of BBMarcos continues to remain in the past. There is no golden age for him as predicted by Makabenta – meaning there is no return to Malacanang or redemption for Junior and Imelda in the ballots.

      What has Bongbong done for Ilocos Norte? He was the governor of the province and I don’t even think he knows how to speak Ilocano fluently. During his tenure as governor did he even stay and live in the province? A majority of the time he seems to have been in Manila or elsewhere. Please tell me what were his substantive accomplishments while he was governor other than chasing photo-ops and windmill projects ala Don Quixote.

      Ilocos Norte has mostly flourished because of the increasing number of OFW’s who have sent money back there and built homes. An increase in tourism and businesses to the province also helped improve the lot of the province. This happened mainly under the watch of Imee Marcos – not Bongbong. She seems to do more in one year than her brother ever did during his several years. In fact Bongbong seems to have used the governorship for photo-ops and as a stepping stone towards higher office. Even though she too has faults Imee should have been the one to run for VP – her efforts to redeem the Marcos name are miles ahead of her brother’s. I know this because I am Ilocano. Imee Marcos should continue her redemptive efforst in I. Norte but the golden age of the Marcoses as predicted by Makabenta is behind us. Even Duterte who respected Marcos Sr. knew it and this is why he chose not to run with Bongbong. Rodrigo seems to really know where the wind is not blowing.

      Karma often bites when it hurts the most..

    • Josefino Bajado Velasco on

      This is for the sake of fair play. I have no qualm whoever among them will win this process. I am willing to support the real winner wkhoevet it may br. Let us set aside emotions and empathy. The question goes to you, will you be willing to accept a BBM victory just in case?

    • Yamato Kira on

      May I quote “Per the official canvass by NBOC, you say that a decisive win for Bongbong is being indicated by the overseas voters by a margin of two to one. Here you jump to false conclusions. Most overseas voters are probably from northern Luzon/Ilocos region and Manila – bastions of Marcos support. So the overseas vote tally would be a highly misleading or an inaccurate indicator of the entire electorate’s choices when it comes to Marcos.” – do you have statistics to back up this claims?

      Based on newspapers, OFW’s came from rural and suburban areas all over the Philippines. That is “ALL OVER THE PHILIPPINES”. Not from Ilocos Region and Luzon but from “ALL OVER THE PHILIPPINES”. So saan mo kinuha ang sinasabi mo?

      Kung makapag-assume ka sobra pero walang basis.

      Now, if this OFW’s were from all over the Philippines, the writer of the article were presuming that this can be a good representation of the Philippine voters. Well, this is a better assumption than your assumption.

      Number 2 quote – “Your proclamation of a golden age for Marcos and the writing being on the wall is now laughable and your biased non-rigorous questioning undermines any respect you may have on this issue. Bongbong represent the Philippines past – one of excesses of brutal rule, kleptocracy, extravagance under his father and mother.

Leni Robredo, a lioness for the poor who borrowed the widower playbook from Cory, represents the future and what the Philippines is looking forward to.”

      Really? As in really? There is no other program in agriculture (past of present) that can equal that of President Marcos. Did not you know that in 1986 election, it was the farmers and peasants that voted for President Marcos to win that election, which the “oligarchy” vehemently opposed. Why? Because during Marcos time, the peasants were supported and the farmers were supported. Why do you think he was able to tame Mr. Taruc during that time?

      Leni Robredo and Cory, well tama ka naman, you can assert that. Besides there are only two (2) worst president that this country ever had, and they have the same last name, aquino. Goodness, bukod sa blackout, power shortages, lack of work, lack of security, gutom ang tao. Saan ka pa….They have the worst presidency, ever.

      The era of the yellows will be a thing of the past, shame, humiliation, regrets and a thing that everyone wants to move on from. Unfortunately, they are part of the Philippine history. In any case, it deserve to be ignored and forgotten.

      Enough with Oligarchism. Enough with division and most of all enough with people like you. Selfish, egoistic and unenlightened.

      I

    • I experienced martial law and it was the most peaceful time ever. The only people put in jail were the NPA’s, the Lopezes, the Aquinos, and there cohorts and the youth organizations they supported who liked to destabilize the government as they wanted to regain control of their economic and political power. At that time we can still sing in the streets. Our freedom of movements were not curtailed. No carnapping- you better ask now retired General Ramon Montaño why there was no carnapping during his time. The simple citizens enjoyed the roads, the schools, the irrigations and rural electrification projects of Marcos. It was during the time of Marcos that Philippines exported rice, sugar ( we had a charismatic aAgriculture Secretary in the name of Tanco) and cement. Unlike during the term of BSAquino he promised we will not import rice anymore and to fulfill that promise he exported our imported rice. I still remember we had a very bad road from Iligan to Agusan. Marcos cemented it and we are enjoying it until now although it has become congested now as the Presidents after Marcos did not expand it.

  19. A quick google search on the use of ‘computer program Trojan Horses’ in automated elections may point to what was done and how.
    Smartmatic are very conversant such techniques to vote-shave, pad, or shift from one candidate to another.

  20. Since day one alarums have been raised about this sneaky smartmatic why it is still the preference of Comelec is one big mystery.

    • maybe millions and millions of reasons. smartmatic is not even or should not have been entertained in the bidding process being a foreign company. the comelec wants everyone to follow the law except itself. comelec has been violating the automated election law by not installing the safeguards mandated to be installed. ang lakas ng loob na hindi sumunod sa utos ng batas. WALANG MAGAWA ANG MGA MAMBABATAS. TAKOT SA COMELEC ANG MGA MAMBABATAS

  21. Your observation is correct. It only takes a switch “On” like From an ? to activate a subroutine program to override a main operating program in part or wholly a subroutine with scripts to swap the destination of a value in a MOV instruction by changing the names in its Destination field in this case two candidates, it could also be a group of candidates in some arrangement to recieve values from the highest to the lowest the scheme is a simple case of a Data monitoring program. What is glaring is you can breach the Software but only if you have the security pass features of the computer system and lay your hand in the program to alter anything

    • michael richardson on

      The story about the mysterious question marks where there should have been the letter ‘n’ stinks.

      In all high level programming languages, Visual Basic, Visual C++, Python, etc) if you want to display a name, there is always a simple instruction like “print(name) – display(name) – print (“haw haw de carabau”) – display(“BongBong Marcos”).

      The fact that there were question marks in the display indicates that the items that were being displayed underwent some form of processing (vetting?) FIRST.

      The processing would have been done by some sub-routine buried deep inside the software.

      There could be many other elaborate sub-routines similarly buried most of them not used but all of them capable of being called by changing ONE program line.

      Allowing people to examine the Source Code is a joke. Any programmer will tell you that for any program containing more than a hundred or so lines, the only way to discover ‘bugs’ is to run it on a system, not scrutinize each line.

    • That’s why number of votes for drilon, etc. (those who received DAP during Corona’s impeachment) is also Doubtful/indubitably.

  22. I voted for Bongbong Marcos. I did not vote for Leni Robredo not because I dislike her but because I dislike BSAquino. Leni started her campaign with a humble statement it is up to God to let her win. Now, clearly it is not up to God but it is up to BSAquino- God does not cheat. Leni now has lost her humility and has shown she craves for power by declaring herself the victor. As BSAquino’s creation Leni just like the Aquino’s will serve the elite. BBM went to Baclaran church, Leni Robredo to Ateneo- two distinct classes of the elite and the poor.

    • “BBM went to Baclaran church, Leni Robredo to Ateneo- two distinct classes of the elite and the poor”, therefore, BBM is for the poor & Leni will serve the elite. Such stupid, ridiculous & laughable comparison. Accusing Leni of benefiting from Aquino’s manipulation of election results can only come from a maliciously biased mouth with nothing concrete to show for it. Typical of losers especially of those whose lust for power is of megalomaniac proportions like that of BBM. They just can’t accept that the people they pretend to serve has rejected them completely with their only hope resting on the uninformed, the misinformed & the gullible idiots.

  23. Thank you mr. Yen for your article. At least now my question is answered as to why is there an official and unofficial counting and why is there a pprcv.because for me naging pampagulo lang sila. i still go for the manual recount because for me that is the only way to resolve and to put an end to election cheating.otherwise this will just be a vicious cycle.

    • Country first on

      I agree with you Julian 100% , with the question of computerize election results being tamper . manual counting is the best result to erased all the doubt .

  24. jeff jaramillo on

    The victory claim of Robredo is based on the assurances of BS Aquino3 that she will win. From the very beginning, Robredo knew she has no chance to win. Almost all declined to run VP under LP, so does Robredo. To think that she is pennyless, new and basically unknown. She knew nobody would contribute for her candidacy.

    But Aquino assured her 500 million pesos plus a long explanation how the votes will be manipulated (thru the VCM) to favor Roxas and her. And when she fully understood the art of cheating, she agreed to run after pretending to have consulted the church (ala Cory) and her dead husband (ala Cory again).

    P.S. Why did Roxas did not get enough votes? He actually did get enough vote from Binay but fell short of winning because the point shaving program did not include Duterte. They miscalculated his capability to gain votes. They concentrated their cheating to Binay and Grace.

      I dont even believe that those are the actual votes of Grace and Vp Binay. Everything is not accurate here but Duterte’s votes if ever shaved are not enough to make him lose. I believe Digong’s votes were not even accurate and were shaved too. God is good really. I hope BBM WINS because he is the true choice of the people.

    Very well written and researched,lets hope the truth comes out so the people know.

    The anomally, as discussed, can also be premised by having caught the
    ‘biggest’ fish in his mouth saying, in a way, that “by all means” BBM will not win the VP. This, and other circumstances, like “Plan B and C”, etc. undoubtedly creates suspicions on the showing of Leni Robredo who is acting now as if she made it.

    If ever BBM loses, everyone who supported him will have to lick his/her wound. But, in the meantime, there should be a ‘clear’ showing that there was no ‘cheating’; fair is fair!

  27. Perhaps you could ask your wife and your wife the meaning of a transparency server. Though PPCRV’s count is termed as unofficial count, the result is still the same as the Comelec’s official count.

  28. Who but the most naïve would claim victory based on an unofficial count and under suspicious circumstances?
    ———————————

    Someone who knows that she is supposed to win and doesn’t want to wait for a investigation of the incident.
    Leni should be held accountable for the cheating as well as anyone that can be connected up to and including the President.

    Start arresting the bad guys and put them in jail for life if found cheating in national elections or taking bribes, engaging in corruption or stealing the peoples money via pork barrel and DAP funds.

    leni, you know that there is evil done for your votes, you also know that you will be use for only the benefit of a few who passes that crooked road, do you want to be one using that road littered with lies, corruption and wrongdoing to others, now is the time to join the others who aspires to use the new the real road, i know that deep in your heart you want to serve, i would have voted for you if you did not join the lp, please do not further tarnish your good image, in the future your votes will be for real

  30. If we will put the counting of votes after the new script on a graph, the pattern of vote for Rob-redo will be in linear or loop, it will go down and it will be up till it reach a certain count (as 40,000 votes), the important thing to do here is to determine what is the command of new script, and do an audit as well of the source code plus the database to determine the breach..i believed those numbers of Robredo came from Escudero and Cayetano votes..we should keep an eye on the machine that was used as they might swap it on counting machine at Novotel!!?a normal count should be like a bursts unless a new command was installed..

      The main issue here is the integrity and credibility of our electoral process…Meaning Philippine Electoral Process….
      The main thrust of the comments should be how to safeguard it for one simple reason…the eyes of the world is in us.
      BIG NO TO PARTISAN COMMENTS…..ENOUGH PLEASE….
