Bakit pinatalsik ang dating pangulong marcos

Kaya naman nang maging pangulo si Noynoy Aquino, ang mga milenyal ay may disposisyon na ng kawalan ng paggalang at pagtitiwala sa gobyernong Pilipino. Naging madali silang pag-initin sa anumang kakulangan ng bagong administrasyon at ganon din ay madaling naakit sa mga pangako o posibilidad ng ibang klase ng pamamahala. At ang kanilang napagbalingan ay ang sistema ng diktadura na naibenta sa kanila ng mga Marcos at ng ilan pang loyalista na mas maganda at maayos na pamamaraan ng pamamahala para sa bansang Pilipinas.

Nakumbinsi ang kanilang mga murang isipin na ang dating diktador ay isang dakilang Pilipino sa pamamagitan ng mga video sa youtube at kung anu-ano pang nababasa sa internet. Malaking Pagkakautang ng Bansa foreign debt. Ipinagmalaki ng mga Marcos sa mga kabataang milenyal ang mga imprastrakturang naipagawa noong panahon ng diktadura: Akala mo naman ay galing ang mga ito sa kanilang sariling bulsa. Hindi man nasabing ito ay galing sa bilyon-bilyong dolyares na inutang mg pamahalaang Marcos sa IMF-World Bank at pamahalaan ng ibang bansa katulad ng Amerika.

Na hanggang ngayon ay binabayaran pa rin ng mga Pilipino. Ayon sa pag-uulat ni Erik Toussaint ng Coalition for the Abolition of Third World Debt, ang pagkakautang ng Pilipinas noong , tatlong taon bago naging presidente si Marcos ay nagsimula sa milyong dolyar pa lamang. Noong o ikatlong taon pa lang ng pamamahala ni Marcos ay lumaki na ito ng 7 beses at nagkakahalaga na ng 1. Nang umalis ang pamilyang Marcos noong ay halos 27 bilyong dolyares na ang utang ng Pilipinas. Ayon naman kay Dr. Emmanuel de Dios, propesor ng Ekonomiya sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas, naranasan ng Pilipinas ang pinakamatindi nitong resesyon gawa ng krisis ng pagkakautang debt crisis at ilang palpak na patakarang pang-ekonomiya na umiral sa ilalim ng pamamahala ni Marcos.

Narito ang kanyang pahayag: Sa totoo lang, ang mga maliligayang araw na laging naaalaala ng mga tagahanga ng rehimen ay itinayo sa bundok-buhangin ng pagkakautang na nagsimulang gumuho noong , at tuluyang bumagsak noong hanggang nang hindi na makapagbayad ang bansa sa napakalaking utang. Ang lagay ng ekonomiya sa ilalim ng administrasyon ni Marcos ay maitutulad sa isang taong nagwaldas gamit ang perang inutang lamang, pagkatapos ay na-bangkarote at tuluyan nang dumanas ng matinding paghihirap na tila walang katapusan.

Kalokohan ang sabihing napamahalaang mabuti ng taong ito ang kanyang kabuhayan, kung gagamiting patunay ang naging marangyang pamumuhay nito bago siya na-bangkarote. Ngunit iyan mismo ang ginagawa ng mga tagahanga ng rehimeng Marcos. Kapansin-pansin na wala ni isa man sa Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia o iba pang bansang dapat ka-ranggo natin sa Asya ang nakaranas ng ganito kasamang pag-atras o pag-urong ng ekonomiya negative growth noong panahong iyon sa dekada otsenta s. Kalahati lamang ng halagang iyan ang utang ng Thailand noong Walang pinapatupad na ganito sa ilalim ng pamamahala ni Marcos, kahit ano pang paghihikayat na ginawa ng mga taong tulad ni Gerardo Sicat na hindi na naging aktibo sa rehimen mula noong At talagang malaking pinsala ang nagawa sa ating bayan ng mga sunod-sunod na kudeta pagkatapos umalis ang mga Marcos.

Emmanuel de Dios, BusinessWorld, Nov Kung magsalita ang mga Marcos ngayon at ang kanilang mga tagahanga, akala mo ay isang tunay na bayan ng kapayapaan ang Pilipinas sa panahon ng diktadura. Hindi nila nababanggit ang naging digmaan sa Mindanao na nagsimula dahil sa pagrerebelde ng maraming muslim laban sa pamamahala ni Marcos.

Hindi nila nababanggit ang mga namatay sa labanan sa pagitan ng mga rebelde at sundalo. Mahigit sa isang milyong residente naman ang nagsilikas. Ang ILAGA ay samahan ng mga kristiyanong naghasik ng lagim sa mga muslim na komunidad sa Mindanao, kinamkam ang kanilang mga lupain, at kinatay ang kanilang mga kalalakihan. Taong ng kanilalang atakihin ang isang mosque sa North Cotabato at walang kalabang-labang pinagpapatay ang 65 muslim na naroon. Naeskandalo ang buong mundo sa malagim na krimen ng kanyang pagkakapaslang noong Yan ang mapayapang buhay sa Mindanao sa panahon ni Marcos.

Maaring natahimik nga ang Maynila sa mga unang taon ng Martial Law ngunit di kalaunan ay nanumbalik na rin muli ang kriminalidad. Walang pagsasaalang-alang ang mga Secret Marshalls ni Marcos sa makatarungang pagtugis at tamang proseso sa pag-aresto ng mga hinihinalang kriminal, na karamihan ay mga snatcher o holdaper sa mga lansangan o pampublikong sasakyan.

At noon namang ay 30 ang patay matapos lamang din ang ilang buwan ng kanilang pamamayagpag. Ito sana ang mga katangiang hinahanap ng bawat Pilipino sa sinumang naghahangad ng kanilang boto tuwing dumarating ang eleksyon. Kung susuriin ba si Bongbong Marcos bilang isang kandidato, taglay ang mga sarili niyang katangian at kakayahan, at dala ang kanyang mga nagawa at naiambag sa bayan at hindi ang mga sinasabing nagawa ng kanyang amang diktador, masasabi bang matino at mahusay si Bongbong Marcos?

Matino — ibig sabihin ay maasahang pipiliin at gagawin ang tama at hindi ang mali, mapagkakatiwalaan, hindi mang-aabuso sa kapangyarihan, hindi mag-nanakaw sa kaban ng bayan. Noong Agosto , matapos pag-aralan at matagpuang ilegal at iregular ang naganap na transaksyon, iniutos ng COA na ibalik ng senador ang sampung milyong piso sa kaban ng bayan. Matino ba ang maglalabas ng halagang sampung milyon na pera ng bayan para pondohan ang isang fake na NGO?

Nagharap ang mga abugado ng mga biktima ng ebidensyang nagpapatunay ng mga hakbanging isinagawa ng pamilyang Marcos uoang maitago ang mga ito. Matino ba ang patuloy na ipagkait sa mga naging biktima ng tortyur, panggagahasa at iba pang uri ng karahasan, o kaya ay mga pamilyang naiwanan ng mga napaslang, ang halagang itinalaga ng korte na tamang kabayaran, at naaayon sa batas, para sa kanilang naging paghihirap? Kamusta naman si Bongbong bilang kandidato sa pagka-bise presidente? Sa promo ng patimpalak sa website ng senador, may poster na kung saan ang senador ay bihis na parang kabataang lalaki.

Akala mo ba ay si Daniel Padilla sa hitsura at pustura. Matino ba na ang isang lalaking halos 60 anyos na 59 sa Setyembre , may asawa at mga anak, ay mag-alok ng date sa mga kabataang babae? Marahil ay may magsasabing hindi dapat bigyang malisya ito, nangangampanya lang naman ang senador. Ngunit kaya ba nating sabihin ito sa mga teen-ager nating anak na babae, na kapag may 59 anyos na mag-alok sa kanila mg date sa Valentine, huwag nila itong bibigyan ng malisya?

Mahusay — ibig sabihin ay nagagawa ang tungkulin ng tama at kasiya-siya. Noong , naghain ang senador ng panukalang-batas sa Senado na naglalayong singilin ng multa ang mga restawran na tatangging magsilbi ng kalahating tasang kanin sa kanilang mga parukyano. Pinangalanan itong Anti- Rice Wastage Act of Aniya, ang kanyang panukalang batas na ito ay kailangan nang maipatupad upang maibsan ang lumalalang problema ng pagkagutom sa bansa. Ang pagsigurong walang nasasayang na bigas sa mga restawran raw ay bahagi ng paglutas sa problema ng pagkagutom.

Dapat daw ay gawin ng bawat mamamayan ang kanilang magagawa upang wala nang batang magugutom sa bansa. Hindi kaya ang mas magandang gawin para sa mga batang nagugutom ay pakainin ang mga ito? Bakit hindi magpanukala ng mga feeding programs para sa mga batang nasa peligro? Noong Hunyo naman, dahil panahon na naman ng tag-ulan, nagpaalala ang senador sa pambansa at mga lokal na pamahalaan na pag-isipan ng solusyon ang mga problema sa pagbaha bago ito mangyari at hindi yung gagawa lamang ng hakbang kaoag naririyan na ang baha.

Sabi pa niya ay wala raw kasing naangkop na plano para sa paggamit ng lupa land use plan ang bansa. Ngunit ayon sa isinulat na opinyon sa Inquirer ni Gemma Rita R. Marin , executive director ng John J. Paano raw kasi and Senate Bill o National Land Use Act ay handa na sana para sa ikatlong pagbasa ngunit napabalik sa pangalawang pagbasa nang magpahayag sina senador Drilon, Villar at Marcos ng intensyong baguhin ang ilang bahagi nito.

Si Marcos ay nagpaumanhin at hindi pa raw handa ang kanyang mga imumungkahing pagbabago. Nang huling araw na nang sesyon, nag-absent si Bongbong Marcos. Pagiatapos ay may laksa pa ng loob magsabing walang Land Use Plan ang bansa. Si Rene Saguisag ay nagtapos ng abugasya sa San Beda College bilang cum laude at pagkatapos ay naging isa sa mga bar topnotcher. May Master of Laws rin na natamo naman mula sa Harvard University. Hindi raw kasi biro-biro ito, alam daw niya kung ano ang kinakailangang gawin sa pagbuo at pagtulak sa isang mahalagang panukalang batas.

Marahil ang mabilisang pagbuo sa BLBAR ang dahilan kung bakit ang ilang ginawang pagbabago sa orihinal na bersiyon ay tila hindi napag-isiping mabuti. Katulad na lamang ng nawawalang preamble sa bersyon ni Bongbong. Ang preamble ay ang mga pangunang pananalita sa simula ng saligang-batas o iba pang batas na nagsasaad ng mga kadahilanan at pakay ng nasabing batas.

Kinuwestiyon ni Senador TG Guingona ang pagtanggal ng preamble sa bersyon ni Bongbong nang ito ay talakayin sa hearing sa senado noong Setyembre Ayon kay Bongbong, ito raw ay upang maiwasan ang pagkakaroon ng takot o haka-haka na ang pinapanukalang batas ay isang bagong konstitusyon para sa isang hiwalay na bansa. Aniya ay makatutulong ang pagkakaroon ng preamble upang maiwasan ang pagkakagulo sa pang-unawa ng layunin ng batas.

Si senador Guingona ay nagtapos ng abogasya sa Ateneo Law School. Dinagdag pa niya na ang BBL ay hindi lamang isang pagpapataw ng awtonomiya o kaya ay paghahati-hati ng isang tahanan at mga ari-arian. Kinakailangang maunawaan ito bilang isang instrumento ng pag-abot sa katarungang panlipunan at pag-unlad ng mga mamamayan, hindi lamang ng Mindanao kungdi ng buong bayan. Ang BBL, ayon sa kanya, ay daan patungo sa kapayapaan. Sa madaling sabi, si Bongbong ay hindi tapos ng kolehiyo. Matalino — may utak, nag-iisip at hindi nadadala sa mga madudulas na salita at pangako, gumagawa ng sariling pagsusuri upang malaman ang katotohanan.

Hindi ba naman nagpapakita lamang ito na marami pa rin naman ang matalinong Pilipino, nakapag-aral man o hindi, mayaman man o mahirap, babae man o lalaki, may edad o kabataan. Aalamin nila kung sino ang nagsasabi ng katotohanan o kasinungalian, makikita nila kung sino ang tunay na naghahangad ng mabuti para sa bayan. Alam nila kung sino ang maglilingkod ng tapat at kung sino ang manloloko. Alam nila kung sino at ano si Bongbong Marcos. At alam din nila kung sino at ano ang mga katangian at kakayahan ng kalaban niyang kandidato.

Siguradong pipiliin nila ang matino at mahusay na kandidato. Kasi nga sila ay matalino. Kelangan lang siguro nila mag-ingay pa ng konti, nangingibabaw kasi ang ingay ng mga baluktot o kulang sa pag-iisip. Parang mga latang walang laman, ang lakas ng tunog.

Biography of "Ferdinand Edralin Marcos Sr."

Yupi naman pag nadaganan ng sakong mabigat ang laman, di ba? Di lamag mga milenyal,pati ang mga kasing edad ko di ako makapaniwala sa mga opinyon na binibigay nila tungkol sa kung gaano kaganda noong panahon ni Macoy. One can only wonder at the quality of an educational system that churns out the kind of reasoning and style of communicating that these young people have learned.

Meron pa rin naman mukhang may natutunan nang maayos kahit papapano. Marcos knows how to kill a bill. Nalua has been killed by those before him,but he killed the latest version. BBL,he should have allowed the draft bill to push through abd propose sone amendments,instead he pretended to be a law maker by proposing a substitute bill. Another kill bill movie courtesy of BBM. It is not only the educational system that allows the likes of Bongbong Marcos to escape the scrutiny of what should have been the more analytical minds of the Filipino youth, those in media by their own incompetence and laziness actually help conceal the inadequacies and hidden agendas of Bill killers like Marcos Jr.

May these messages metastasize throughout the motherland… and move the minds of many millennials to mangle Marcos Jr. What has happened to UP? That is why UP crooks never get to spend jail time because they are protected by their UP schoolmates. Something is wrong with our justice system and UP school system.

Somebody has got to defang, defund and investigate this school. Problem is they appoint a UP to investigate their own. Enrile and the Lopezes Eugenio Lopez Sr.

Prior to the Marcos administration, the Philippine government had maintained a close relationship with the Kuomintang -ruled Republic of China ROC government which had fled to the island of Taiwan , despite the victory of the Communist Party of China in the Chinese Communist Revolution.

Prior administrations had seen the People's Republic of China PRC as a security threat, due to its financial and military support of Communist rebels in the country. By , however, Ferdinand Marcos started publicly asserting the need for the Philippines to establish a diplomatic relationship with the People's Republic of China.

In his State of the Nation Address, he said: We, in Asia must strive toward a modus vivendi with Red China. I reiterate this need, which is becoming more urgent each day.

Before long, Communist China will have increased its striking power a thousand fold with a sophisticated delivery system for its nuclear weapons. We must prepare for that day. We must prepare to coexist peaceably with Communist China.

Ferdinand Marcos

The Washington Post in an interview with former Philippine Communist Party Officials, revealed that, "they local communist party officials wound up languishing in China for 10 years as unwilling "guests" of the Chinese government, feuding bitterly among themselves and with the party leadership in the Philippines". The Philippine parliamentary election, was held on April 7, for the election of the of the regional representatives to the Interim Batasang Pambansa the nation's first parliament.

All of the party's candidates, including Ninoy, lost in the election. In , the position returned when Ferdinand Marcos became Prime Minister. Based on Article 9 of the constitution, it had broad executive powers that would be typical of modern prime ministers in other countries. The position was the official head of government, and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. All of the previous powers of the President from the Constitution were transferred to the newly restored office of Prime Minister.

Upon his re-election to the Presidency in , Marcos was succeeded as Prime Minister by an American-educated leader and Wharton graduate, Cesar Virata , who was elected as an Assemblyman Member of the Parliament from Cavite in After putting in force amendments to the constitution, legislative action, and securing his sweeping powers and with the Batasan, his supposed successor body to the Congress, under his control, President Marcos issued Proclamation , which technically "lifted" martial law, on January 17, However, the suspension of the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus continued in the autonomous regions of Western Mindanao and Central Mindanao.

The opposition dubbed the lifting of martial law as a mere "face lifting" as a precondition to the visit of Pope John Paul II. We love your adherence to democratic principles and to the democratic process, and we will not leave you in isolation. On June 16, , six months after the lifting of martial law, the first presidential election in twelve years was held.

President Marcos ran and won a massive victory over the other candidates. The group was able to return to urban areas and form relationships with legal opposition organizations, and became increasingly successful in attacks against the government throughout the country. On August 21, , opposition leader Benigno Aquino Jr. He had returned to the Philippines after three years in exile in the United States, where he had a heart bypass operation to save his life after Marcos allowed him to leave the Philippines to seek medical care.

Victor Corpuz, were sentenced to death by a military commission on charges of murder, illegal possession of firearms and subversion. A few months before his assassination, Ninoy had decided to return to the Philippines after his research fellowship from Harvard University had finished. The opposition blamed Marcos directly for the assassination while others blamed the military and his wife, Imelda.

Popular speculation pointed to three suspects; the first was Marcos himself through his trusted military chief Fabian Ver; the second theory pointed to his wife Imelda who had her own burning ambition now that her ailing husband seemed to be getting weaker, and the third theory was that Danding Cojuangco planned the assassination because of his own political ambitions. Martinez also alleged only he and Galman knew of the assassination, and that Galman was the actual shooter, which is not corroborated by other evidence of the case.

In August , 56 Assemblymen signed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Marcos for alleged diversion of U. The Assembly also included in the complaint the misuse and misapplication of funds "for the construction of the Manila Film Center , where X-rated and pornographic films [ citation needed ] are exhibited, contrary to public morals and Filipino customs and traditions. During his third term, Marcos's health deteriorated rapidly due to kidney ailments, as a complication of a chronic autoimmune disease lupus erythematosus.

He had a kidney transplant in August , and when his body rejected the first kidney transplant, he had a second transplant in November Police said he was kidnapped and slain by communist rebels. Marcos dismissed speculations of his ailing health as he used to be an avid golfer and fitness buff who liked showing off his physique.

President Ronald Reagan started distancing himself from the Marcos regime that he and previous American presidents had strongly supported even after Marcos declared martial law. The United States, which had provided hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, was crucial in buttressing Marcos's rule over the years, [] although during the Carter administration the relationship with the U.

The year period of Philippine economic history during Ferdinand Marcos' regime - from his election in until he was ousted by the People Power Revolution in was a period of significant economic highs and lows. To help finance a number of economic development projects, the Marcos government borrowed large amounts of money from international lenders. As a former colony of the United States, the Philippines was heavily reliant on the American economy to purchase agricultural goods such as sugar, [] tobacco, coconut, bananas, and pineapple [] [] and US corporations prospered.

Foreign capital was invited to invest in certain industrial projects. They were offered incentives, including tax exemption privileges and the privilege of bringing out their profits in foreign currencies. One of the most important economic programs in the s was the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran Movement for Livelihood and Progress.

This program was started in September It aimed to promote the economic development of the barangays by encouraging its residents to engage in their own livelihood projects. The government's efforts resulted in the increase of the nation's economic growth rate to an average of six percent or seven percent from to The Philippine economy, heavily reliant on exports to the United States, suffered a great decline after the Aquino assassination in August because Filipino business and political leaders who studied in Harvard, Yale, and other US universities began lobbying American and foreign firms to discourage them from investing in the Philippines.

This was taking place at the same time that China was beginning to accept free-market capitalism and American businesses were jockeying to establish manufacturing plants in China. The political troubles of the Philippines hindered the entry of foreign investments, and foreign banks stopped granting loans to the Philippine government. In an attempt to launch a national economic recovery program and despite his growing isolation from American businesses, Marcos negotiated with foreign creditors including the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development , World Bank , and the International Monetary Fund IMF , for a restructuring of the country's foreign debts — to give the Philippines more time to pay the loans.

Marcos ordered a cut in government expenditures and used a portion of the savings to finance the Sariling Sikap Self-Reliance , a livelihood program he established in However, the economy continued to shrink despite the government's recovery efforts due to a number of reasons. Most of the so-called government development programs failed to materialize. Government funds were often siphoned off by Marcos or his cronies.

American investors were discouraged by the Filipino economic elite who were against the corruption that by now had become endemic in the Marcos regime. The unemployment rate increased from 6. Considering the severe — recession, the Philippine economy annual growth rate from to of 3. It was created to engage in collating, developing and analyzing credit information on individuals, institutions, business entities and other business concerns.

It aims to develop and undertake the continuing exchange of credit data within its members and subscribers and to provide an impartial source of credit information for debtors, creditors and the public. In , Credit Information Bureau, Inc. CIBI is a provider of information and intelligence for business, credit and individuals. Marcos himself diverted large sums of government money to his party's campaign funds. Marcos's critics charged that policies have become debt-driven with rampant corruption and plunder of public funds by Marcos and his cronies.

This held the country under a debt-servicing crisis which is expected to be fixed by only Critics have pointed out an elusive state of the country's development as the period is marred by a sharp devaluing of the Philippine Peso from 3. The overall economy experienced a slower growth GDP per capita, lower wage conditions and higher unemployment especially towards the end of Marcos's term after the — recession. After declaring martial law in , Marcos promised to implement agrarian reforms. However, the land reforms served largely to undermine Marcos's landholder opponents, not to lessen inequality in the countryside, [] and encouraged conversion to cash tenancy and greater reliance on farm workers.

By the early s, forestry collapsed because most of the Philippines' accessible forests had been depleted—of the 12 million hectares of forestland, about 7 million had been left barren. Despite claims made by the book that land reforms served largely to undermine Marcos's landholder opponents, Marcos's government did not distribute to small farmers his political rival Ninoy Aquino's family's 6, hectare Hacienda Luisita plantation, the biggest in the country.

While this resulted in annual rice production in the Philippines increasing from 3. This and other related reforms resulted in high profits for transnational corporations, but were generally harmful to small, peasant farmers who were often pushed into poverty. In late , in the face of escalating public discontent and under pressure from foreign allies, Marcos called a " snap election " with more than a year left in his term. He selected Arturo Tolentino as his running mate. The opposition to Marcos united behind two American-educated leaders, Aquino's widow, Corazon , and her running mate, Salvador Laurel.

It was during this time that Marcos's World War II medals for fighting the Japanese Occupation was first questioned by the foreign press. During a campaign in Manila's Tondo district, Marcos retorted: You who are here in Tondo and fought under me and who were part of my guerrilla organization—you answer them, these crazy individuals, especially the foreign press.

Our opponents say Marcos was not a real guerrilla. These people who were collaborating with the enemy when we were fighting the enemy. Now they have the nerve to question my war record. I will not pay any attention to their accusation. Marcos was referring to both presidential candidate Corazon Aquino's father-in-law Benigno Aquino Sr. Both were arrested and charged for treason after the war. The elections were held on February 7, Cheating was reported on both sides. Two Namfrel volunteers were hanged in Ilocos.

The Ilocano votes were enough to overwhelm Cory's lead in Metro Manila and other places. RAM, led by Lt. The failed election process gave a decisive boost to the " People Power movement. At the height of the revolution, Juan Ponce Enrile revealed that a purported and well-publicized ambush attempt against him years earlier was in fact faked, in order for Marcos to have a pretext for imposing martial law.

However, Marcos never ceased to maintain that he was the duly elected and proclaimed president of the Philippines for a fourth term, but unfairly and illegally deprived of his right to serve it. On February 25, , rival presidential inaugurations were held, [] but as Aquino supporters overran parts of Manila and seized state broadcaster PTV-4 , Marcos was forced to flee. Laxalt advised him to "cut and cut cleanly", to which Marcos expressed his disappointment after a short pause. As per the official page US Customs record, the two C transport planes that carried the Marcos family and their closest allies had 23 wooden crates; 12 suitcases and bags, and various boxes, whose contents included enough clothes to fill 67 racks; pieces of jewelry; 24 gold bricks, inscribed "To my husband on our 24th anniversary"; and more than 27m Philippine pesos in freshly printed notes.

The jewelry included 70 pairs of jewel-studded cufflinks; an ivory statue of the infant Jesus with a silver mantle and a diamond necklace. The Catholic hierarchy and Manila's middle class were crucial to the success of the massive crusade, but only within Metro Manila because no mass demonstrations or protests against Marcos occurred in the provinces and islands of Visayas and Mindanao. More than a year after the People Power Revolution, it was revealed to the United States House Foreign Affairs subcommittee in that Marcos held an intention to fly back to the Philippines and overthrow the Aquino government.

Two Americans, namely attorney Richard Hirschfeld and business consultant Robert Chastain, both of whom posed as arms dealers, gained knowledge of a plot by gaining Marcos' trust and secretly tape recorded their conversations with the ousted leader. According to Hirschfeld, he was first invited by Marcos to a party held at the latter's family residence in Oahu, Hawaii. After hearing that one of Hirschfeld's clients was Saudi Sheikh Mohammad Fassi, Marcos' interest was piqued because he had done business with Saudis in the past.

A few weeks later, Marcos asked for help with securing a passport from another country, in order to travel back to the Philippines while bypassing travel restrictions imposed by the Philippines and United States governments. Marcos had thought of being flown to his hometown in Ilocos Norte, greeted by his loyal supporters, and initiating a plot to kidnap Corazon Aquino. Learning of this plan, Hirschfeld contacted the US Department of Justice, and was asked for further evidence.

This information eventually reached President Ronald Reagan, who placed Marcos under "island arrest", further limiting his movement. In response, the Aquino government dismissed Marcos' statements as being a mere propaganda ploy. However, Marcos's offer was rebuffed by the Aquino government. Marcos died in Honolulu on the morning of September 28, , of kidney, heart, and lung ailments. Marcos was interred in a private mausoleum at Byodo-In Temple on the island of Oahu where his remains were visited daily by the Marcos family, political allies and friends.

The Aquino government refused to allow Marcos's body to be brought back to the Philippines. The body was only brought back to the Philippines four years after Marcos's death during the term of President Fidel Ramos. From to , his remains were interred inside a refrigerated crypt in Ilocos Norte , where his son, Ferdinand Jr. A large bust of Ferdinand Marcos inspired by Mount Rushmore was commissioned by the tourism minister, Jose Aspiras , and carved into a hillside in Benguet. It was subsequently destroyed; suspects included left-wing activists, members of a local tribe who had been displaced by construction of the monument, and looters hunting for the legendary Yamashita treasure.

Opinion on his burial remains split: On November 18, , the remains of Marcos were buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani despite opposition from various groups. The burial came as unexpected to many, as the Supreme Court's ruling still allowed 15 days for the opposition to file a motion for reconsideration. On the morning of November 18, using Philippine Armed Forces helicopters, his family and their supporters flew his remains from Ilocos to Manila for a private burial.

Various protest groups formed immediately upon hearing the news of the unexpected burial. Among those who gathered to oppose the burial were youth groups and opponents of the burial of Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. The League of Filipino Students described the transfer of Marcos' remains as being done like "a thief in the night. The Kabataan Partylist also condemned the burial, labeling it as a "grave travesty" and as " galawang Hokage " in reference to the burial of Marcos being planned and conducted unbeknownst to the public.

Ferdinand Marcos married Imelda Romualdez on May 1, , and the marriage produced three children: His fourth child, Aimee Marcos born , is adopted. Victims would simply be rounded up with no arrest warrant nor reading of prisoners' rights and kept indefinitely locked up with no charges filed against them. A Amnesty International report had listed 88 government torturers, including members of the Philippine Constabulary and the Philippine Army, which was respectively under the direct control of Major General Fidel V.

Rodolfo Aguinaldo, [21] [] credited with capturing most of the Communist Party leaders including Jose Ma. Task Force Detainees of the Philippines has recorded: Historian Alfred McCoy gives a figure of 3, recorded extrajudicial killings by the military from to , 35, tortured and 70, incarcerated. In addition to these, up to 10, Moro Muslims were killed in massacres by the Philippine Army , Philippine Constabulary , and the Ilaga pro-government paramilitary group.

Victims were often taken to military "Safehouses", [] a euphemism for hidden places of torture, [] often blindfolded. They are usually covered with high walls. One would usually detect [safehouses] through the traffic of motorcycles and cars, going in and out of the house at irregular hours. Burly men, armed with pistols tucked in their waists or in clutch bags, usually drive these vehicles.

Various forms of torture were used by the military, and these forms of torture were usually combined with each other. Physical torture was also often inflicted upon victims. Aside from deadly weapons, implements of torture included water, pliers, thumb tacks, ballpoint pens, and flat irons. Physical torture also took the forms of:. Summary executions were prevalent during the Martial Law era with bodies being recovered in various places and often bearing signs of torture and mutilation.

Anyone could be "salvaged" - Communist rebels, suspects, innocent civilians and priests included. TFDP documented 1, "salvage" cases from to alone: Enforced disappearances, also known "desaparecidos" or "the disappeared"—people who suddenly went missing, sometimes without a trace and with bodies never recovered. While the numbers of political detainees went down, the number of people killed rose and spiked in , the year Martial Law was officially lifted by Marcos according to Task Force Detainees of the Philippines.

According to Senator Jose Diokno , "As torture cases declined, a more terrible tactic emerged; unofficial executions"—suspected dissidents were simply arrested and vanished. It is hard to judge the full extent of massacres and atrocities which happened during the Marcos regime due to a heavily censored press at the time. The Marcos regime had started to kill hundreds of Moros even before the imposition of Martial Law in Root Causes and Prospects for Peace , a doctoral dissertation by Marjanie Salic Macasalong, the number of Moro victims killed by the Army , Philippine Constabulary , and the Ilaga a notorious government-sanctioned [] terrorist cult known for cannibalism and land grabbing that served as members of the CHDF [] reached as high as 10, lives.

Marcos and his wife, Imelda, were jointly credited in by Guinness World Records with the largest-ever theft from a government: Marcos's government built widely publicized infrastructure projects and monuments using foreign currency loans [] and at great taxpayer cost. Sicat, "a study of infrastructure construction by various presidents shows that Marcos was the president who made the largest infrastructure investment. This is not because he was the longest-serving leader of the country alone. On a per-year basis, he led all the presidents.

Only Fidel Ramos had bested him in road building for a period of one year". To help transform the country's agricultural-based economy to a Newly industrialized country , [] he spearheaded the development of 11 heavy industrialization projects [] including steel, petrochemical, [] cement, pulp and paper mill, and copper smelter. Likewise, the country crafted a large number of decrees, laws, and edicts during Marcos's term.

To put this into context, only 14, 12, and 11 laws were passed in , and , respectively. Marcos left a mixed legacy for future generations. On one hand, many laws written by Marcos are still in force and in effect. Out of thousands of proclamations, decrees, and executive orders, only a few were repealed, revoked, modified or amended. More importantly, many people who rose to power under Marcos continued to remain in power or even ascended higher after his exile, thus leaving a further imprint on present-day Filipino affairs. One of these was Fidel Ramos , a general promoted by Marcos who supervised many terror killings and tortures, who later switched sides and subsequently fought elections and became president himself.

Today, according to Ibon Foundation, Filipino citizens are still bearing the heavy burden of servicing public debts incurred during Marcos's administration, with ongoing interest payments on the loan schedule by the Philippine government estimated to last until —59 years after Marcos assumed office and 39 years after he was kicked out. Corazon Aquino had an opportunity to default and not pay foreign debt incurred during the Marcos administration. However, due to Finance Secretary Jaime Ongpin 's warning [] on the consequences of a debt default , which includes isolating the country from the international financial community and hampering the economic recovery, Corazon Aquino honored all the debts incurred during the Marcos Administration, [] contrary to expectations of left-learning organizations like Ibon foundation which advocated for non-payment of debt.

The amount of theft perpetrated by Marcos's regime was probably less than that by Suharto on Indonesia, but harmed our country more because the sums stolen by Marcos were sent out of the country, whereas Suharto's loot mostly were invested in Indonesia.

Comparisons have also been made between Ferdinand Marcos and Lee Kuan Yew's authoritarian style of governance and Singapore's success, [] but in his autobiography, From Third World to First: It is a soft, forgiving culture.

Only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over 20 years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics.
