Ateneo Snubs Raissa Robles’ Book In Reading List of Martial Law Literature

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – In anticipation of a Bongbong Marcos presidency, the Ateneo de Manila University released a list of top Martial Law books it described as a ”reading list” presumably to sow resistance to the administration of the son of the late, great Ferdinand E. Marcos.

But alas, the list seems to have snubbed one of the most ballyhooed book written by self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles:
Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.”

Netizens immediately started speculating that the anti-Marcos Robles’s book was not scholarly enough per the standards of one of the top universities in the country.

The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach Robles for comment but it appears her mobile phone was out of data or suspended for non-payment of her monthly bill.

We’ll keep on trying.

Raissa Robles Book Sequel On Marcos To Come Out October 9!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles didn’t get her wish come true.

Her book, ”Marcos Martial Law Never Again” has become her battlecry and that of the tiny minions of mostly Dilawans (Yellows) who vowed that there will never be a return of the Marcoses in politics.

Alas, that wish was instantly squashed when Marcos’ son, Bongbong officially declared on October 5, that he intends to run for President in the Philippines’ May, 2022 elections

Robles immediately went into high gear mode scribbling pages and pages of her new book sequel titled, ”Never Say Never Again.”

The new ”novel” is scheduled to be released on October 9, a day after the filing deadline for certificates of candidacy for next year’s polls.
