Another Guinness World Record for the Philippines!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines has just earned another entry in the Guinness Book of World Records with the appointment of Juan Ponce Enrile as Bongbong Marcos’ Presidential Legal Adviser.

Enrile, as then Defense Secretary, helped oust Bongbong’s father, Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. during the People’s Power Revolution.

But that’s not what the world record is all about.

Enrile, 98, would be the world’s oldest living politician. Two years into the Marcos administration, Enrile would be a Centenarian, a record that would be very hard to beat.

This record, of course, is subject to fact checking by Rappler and Vera Files.

Adobo Chronicles’ Historical Revisionism #3

The Adobo Chronicles has a completely new series on historical revisionism. Many are guilty, but few are chosen.

We are often told that history is bound to repeat itself, unless we make an effort to revise it to fit our own avowed narratives. We have seen government opponents, news media and netizens do it. We won’t be left behind.
