Before I start, despite the title, this is a non-partisan post from someone whose vote went to the father-like humble Senator Gregorio Honasan, who even though is low in surveys I have still voted because of my admiration of his combined humility and professionalism, which shined clearly during the series of televised Vice Presidential Debates where the good Senator choose to focus on the actual issues of the Philippines rather than talk against and criticize the others in public television. Furthermore, personally, I admire all of them six Vice Presidential candidates with confidence to say that they are even the better choices for the Presidential race itself.
Also, again, despite the title, I have nothing against Madam Robredo for I may not know all, but I know enough to say that she’s a good person with a good heart, specially for those who are at the outskirts “laylayan.”
To simply put it, this is not against Madam Leni, but simply and entirely to express our thoughts and ideas about Madam Robredo’s sudden drastic total vote jump over Sir Bongbong Marcos’ tallied votes. And what bothers us (I’m vigilantly watching the news with colleagues who are similarly opinion-minded as I am), was that from the very moment Madam Robredo overtook Sir Marcos’ tallied votes, down to the many hours and days that follows, we could not ignore one fact that Robredo’s lead stayed at 200,000 plus!!! No matter how many more votes get added to Madam Robredo’s, it stays at 200,000 plus above Marcos.
And take note, this 200,000 plus lead votes for Madam Robredo started after the Smartmatic program have been TAMPERED!!!
By the way, we could not understand why everyone, AS IN EVERYONE, from the COMELEC side, the PPCRV side, even the MARCOS side failed to identify a very big violation on this picture. What am I trying to say?
Look: What we have is an on-going election and vote counting for the two highest political positions for the country’s government. IT IS OUR NATIONAL ELECTION FOR CHRIST SAKE!!! AND HERE WE ARE ALLOWING SOMEONE TO TAMPER (DO CHANGES) THE VERY PROGRAM USED IN THIS ELECTION WHILE THE COUNTING OF NATIONAL VOTES IS ON GOING!!!
NATIONAL ELECTION AND COUNTING VOTES FOR THE PRESIDENCY AND VICE PRESIDENCY IS NOT LIKE A TELEVISION SHOW WHEREIN THE WRITERS MAY BARGE IN TO MAKE REVISIONS ON THE SCRIPTS WHILE THE SHOW IS ON GOING!!!
AGAIN, THIS IS OUR COUNTRY’S NATIONAL ELECTION FOR CHRIST SAKE!!! THEREFORE, ONCE THE PROCESS IS STARTED NO BODY, AS IN NO BODY, EVEN THE COMELEC THEMSELVES ARE ALLOWED TO DO ANYTHING ON ANY TOOLS OR MACHINE USED TO COUNT VOTES BEING TRANSMITTED FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THIS HOPEFUL COUNTRY!!!
The SmartMatic people on the defense stated, the updating of their program’s script to correct a font does not affect the counting of vote counts. Now, people, after hearing that, is that enough to justify that very fact that THEY DID SOMETHING THAT TAMPERED THE PROGRAM USED TO RECEIVE AND COUNT INCOMING TRANSMITTED VOTES! Affected or not, the act of tampering itself IS ALREADY A VIOLATION OF THE ELECTION PROCESS.
Besides, we will never know the truth if what they did indeed is to correct the malfunctioning font. BUT THEN AGAIN, TOUCHING THE PROGRAM DURING AND WHILE THE VOTES TRANSMISSIONS ARE ON-GOING IS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED TAMPERING AND THEREFORE A CLEAR AND GRAVE VIOLATION OF THE PROCESS.
Also, if (I am not saying it is, but if for example) the tampering was covertly intended also to insert hidden programs to add votes on a particular candidate, let me tell you this as explained by a friend of mine who is an IT expert, you will find nothing. Why? Because once done, digital or program evidence can simply be deleted after it has been applied. So, sorry for us, even if Marcos’ side demand for an investigation, they will never find anything because whatever it has been used and done, traces of it are already totally deleted.
Going back, if there is anything suspicious with the numbers displayed by PPCRV for the Vice Presidential race, it is the obvious sudden 200,000 extra votes added to Madam Robredo’s. Because again, from start to finish, Madam Leni’s lead stayed at 200,000 plus, that if we will deduct 200,000 FLAT votes from Madam Leni Robredo, the resulting difference will look more realistic if we will compare it to the numbers in the multiple televised surveys for Madam Leni Robredo and Sir Bongbong Marcos back in the campaign period.
So, the magic number in Madam Leni Robredo’s tallied votes by the PPCRV is 200,000. Try to do the math, people. Specially you from Marcos’ party. Get Madam Leni’s last projected tallied votes, then deduct the magic number 200,000. Compare the result to the surveyed numbers for Madam Leni and Sir Bongbong during the campaign period and see if Madam Leni Robredo’s tallied votes minus the magic 200,000 flat reflects the numbers during the campaign period’s surveys.
But, if there was cheating committed in the Vice Presidential race, are we saying that Madam Leni Robredo is guilty? Our answer is a resounding “NO!” Why? Because we do not see in the character and personality of the good congresswoman that she is capable of committing such. So the question becomes, “Who did this?”
Have you seen the news before where and when current President Noynoy Aquino adamantly promised that he will do everything to keep Marcos from winning? Have you also seen the news reports about Smartmatic machines and employees sited at a hotel that based on the news report was financed by Noynoy? We are not saying this is a confirmed report. We are simply citing some events that may be related.
Remember, any program is nothing more than a program. Imagine your Facebook account, even if you have only one Facebook account, you can however access and use it from multiple devices. So, if each Smartmatic device is designed to be assigned as a single account for a specific single precinct, IS IT POSSIBLE TO PROGRAM OTHER UN-ISSUED SMARTMATIC DEVICES, USE IT FROM DIFFERENT UNDISCLOSED LOCATIONS BUT TRANSMIT ENTERED VOTES TO THE REGISTERED PRECINCT EVEN THOUGH IT CAME FROM A DIFFERENT DEVICE? SO THAT BOTH THE LEGITIMATE VOTES ENTERED IN THE ACTUAL PRECINCT, AND THE ILLEGAL VOTES ENTERED IN ANOTHER DEVICE FROM A DIFFERENT LOCATION BE TRANSMITTED TO A SINGLE PRECINCT ACCOUNT TO MAKE BOTH TRANSMISSIONS LOOK LIKE IT CAME FROM THE SAME PRECINCT? That is one point that the Marcos and the COMELEC should take time to investigate.
Madam Leni Robredo is definitely innocent from cheating in her votes, but the 200,000 (exact numbers) votes that were suddenly added to her PPCRV tallied votes are highly suspicious.
A colleague ask: “If for example, hypothetically, the current administration is behind the cheating in this 2016 national election, why did they did it for Leni Robredo running for Vice Presidency, rather than doing it for Mar Roxas who’s running for a much higher position, the Presidency?
The answer is so simple: “Everyone knows how poor Mar Roxas’ surveyed numbers during the campaign period, and being the Administration’s candidate and being backed by a big television network majority of the people will be against him (not because he’s Mar Roxas, but simply because he’s for the current Administration), definitely it will be a great risk to use the mechanism to cheat for Mar Roxas because it will be very obvious and his win will be questioned that may lead to public chaos on the streets. So, instead of using the mechanism for Mar Roxas, it will be better to gamble it for Leni Robredo “para hindi masyado halata.”
Kaso nga, kapansin-pansin yung 200,000 (exact numbers) extra votes na tumulong magpalamang kay Madam Leni Robredo. Na kung wala yun, sigurado na sana si Sir Bongbong Marcos. At kaya siya (the 200,000 added votes) naging kapansin-pansin ay dahil mula simula nang idagdag iyon hanggang sa itigil ng PPCRV ang kanilang unofficial count ay nanatiling 200,000 extra votes ang nagpapalaki sa botong nakolekta para kay Madam Leni. Pansinin ninyo, at uulitin namin, try ninyong ibawas yung extrang 200,000 (exact numbers) then ikumpara ninyo ang magiging resulta sa botong nakuha naman ni Sir Marcos. Doon makikita kung gaano kalayo dapat ni Sir Bongbong Marcos na tulad sa mga numero noong campaign period palang.
Just an opinion.
(Covered: The magic 200,000 extra votes added to Leni Robredo, and SmartMatic gravely violating the COMELEC, and the national election process by tampering with the counting machine during the very moment that votes transmissions are being received – NEVER EVER IGNORE THIS GRAVE VIOLATION EVEN THOUGH SMARTMATIC WILL CLAIM THE CHANGES MADE DOES NOT AFFECT THE VOTES TRANSMISSIONS. TAMPERING IS TAMPERING. PERIOD!!!)
