China's Imelda Marcos

15 October 2013

Imelda Marcos, the former First Lady of The Philippines (the wife of an US backed dictator), used to have numerous expensive shoes and many beautiful dresses.

Peng Liyuan, the current First Lady of China, is having numerous expensive dresses and many beautiful shoes, plus imported exquisite watches.

Imelda Marcos has a father who was a law professor and a younger brother who has never been a soldier.

Peng Liyuan does not have a law-wise father (when you consider he is a Shandong native, you'll think it is all natural for him to know very little about law) but her younger brother was a soldier (and during the war with Vietnam her father wanted her to use her influence helping her brother toleave the battlefield, which makes her family a good match with that of her husband - Xi Jinping's father urged all his children to migrate overseas).

During her early years, Imelda Marcos took voice lessons at the music, and her photogenic face soon graced many of Manila's magazine covers.

During her early years, Peng Liyuan took voice lessons at the music, but her photogenic face did not grace any magazine cover until decades later. But when she did (that was last year), the middle-aged woman was quickly voted as the winner of the Vanity Fair by the US fashion magazine.

In 1953, Imelda Marcos met Congressman Ferdinand Marcos who became her husband 11 days later and became Philippine President two years later. After becoming a First Lady, she responded to criticisms of her extravagance by claiming that it was her "duty" to be "some kind of light, a star to give the poor guidelines."

In 1986, Peng Liyuan met Fujian Deputy Governor Xi Jinping who became her husband some days later and became Chinese President 27 years later. After becoming a First Lady, her spin doctors responded to criticisms of her extravagance by claiming that it was her "duty" to promote Chinese style fashion while in fact her fashion statement has little Chinese characteristics.

During her time as the First Lady, Imelda Marcos orchestrated lavish public events using millions of dollars in public funds to extol her husband's regime and bolster her public image.

During her time as the First Lady, her husband's Chinese administration orchestrated lavish public events using millions of dollars in public funds to bolster Peng Liyuan's public image that was designed to make up for the dummy impression of her husband's regime.

After the assassination of her husband's most prominent critics, former senator Benigno Aquino Jr., in 1983, Imelda Marcos and her husband were accused of ordering his assassination, which ignited the People Power Revolution of 1986 that toppled her husband's reign.

After the persecution of her husband's biggest potential challenger, former Chongqing governor Bo Xilai, in 2013, her home province and her husband are accused of carrying his rival's political assassination, which could ignite the Mass Line Revolution at any time.

After Her husband has been ousted from power, it was discovered that Marcos couple have amassed between $5 billion to $10 billion from public funds to accounts and investments in the United States, Switzerland, and other countries in the 21 years as president and the First Lady of the Philippines. Marcos has since appeared in the list of the World's Most Corrupt Leaders.

After her husband has ascended to the presidential power, Chinese public realised that he is not going to investigate and prosecute Wen Jiabao couple who have amassed between $2.7 billion to $31 billion from public funds to accounts and investments in the United States, Switzerland, and other countries in the 10 years as Chinese premier and premier's wife, because Xi Jinping's own role in China's biggest smuggling case and in the dubious business run by his siblings, who are all foreign citizens or permanent residents, could be equally scandalous. What kind of legacy Peng Liyuan's husband will leave in history?

Now let's review how Chinese Imelda Marcos (ironically she is also a PLA general) staged her extravagant fashion parade during her three-day tour in the Southeast Asia.
