CHINESE CHECKERS AND THE "RETURN" OF THE YONA PROPERTY

Posted by Tim

After Hon's press release hit the news yesterday, as you might expect, I began receiving congratulatory messages. However, for now, I have to say "thanks, but no thanks," and beg the indulgence of my well-wishers. 

Here's why.

Sadly...and confoundedly, it is more Hon double-speak. The first clue is the three-paragraph-long apologia about how he is "ministering" to us in the fashion of Pope Francis and more "the pope sent me" stuff. 

He then proceeds with an almost comical "cover-my-arse" explanation of the Yona property, an explanation which further complicates the issue, misleads the press, suckers the public, and leaves us with little more than a happy face and a lousy game of Chinese checkers. 


After Hon's long self-congratulatory introduction, the first clue that he is up to something is this: "The 'property' was no doubt acquired by the Archdiocese...

LOL. We've got to hand it to Hon. He's good. Those words are a masterful "arse-covering." 

On July 28 in an interview with KUAM, Hon said: "The archdiocese owns that property. No doubt of it." Very slick. Hon knows that the archdiocese does NOT own the property. In fact, he has known since January of 2015 when the CCOG handed him a 62 page report with all the facts about the property, facts which were reaffirmed at a later meeting with Richard Untalan, former president of the archdiocesan finance council. 

The "facts" that Hon "learned" on Thursday, August 11, at a meeting with "some members of the Church on Guam" were no different than the facts he received in January 2015. The difference is that the facts were made known to both Hon and the presbyteral council at the same time and in such a way that made inaction impossible for Hon. 

Hon himself admits that he knew the truth about the seminary property in January of 2015 because in the second to the last paragraph of his Aug 18 statement he says that the Holy See "recognized the problem...more than a year ago." The Holy See "recognized the problem" because Hon told them about the problem!

Let's go back to Hon's July 28 KUAM interview where he says: "The archdiocese owns that property. No doubt of it." Now let's look at what he says next: "And then there's a certain ambiguity who has the right to use it. And on this matter, I'm going to have a review of it."

WHOAH! He's going to "have a review of it." Wait a minute! Hon just told us in his August 18 press release that the Holy See, "more than a year ago," ordered Apuron to "rescind and annul" the Deed Restriction. But "more than a year" later, Hon is telling KUAM that he is "going to have a review of it." 

Who is being disobedient here? According to Hon's own words, the pope has already accepted his "review" of "more than a year ago" and ordered the deed rescinded and annulled. But on July 28, more than a year later, Hon is pretending that the issue has yet to be taken up! That's B.S. 

On June 9, 2016, Hon, by virtue of the pope's authority invested in him, assumed all the powers of the office of the Archbishop of Agana, Guam. That means that on DAY ONE he had "all the power" (his words) to "rescind and annul" the Deed Restriction as ordered by the Holy See "more than a year ago." Yet, two months after taking office he tells us that he has yet to "have a review of it." SMH!

(At my personal meeting with Hon in January of 2015, the one thing he took particular issue with was my calling Apuron a "liar." He didn't like that word. Now I can see why.) 

So we see why Hon worded his August 18 statement "The 'property' was no doubt acquired by the Archdiocese..." He is trying to make us think that his use of the words "no doubt," in his July 28 KUAM interview, were in reference to the "acquisition" of the property and NOT the current ownership. He has to do this because he got caught red-handed. There is no mistaking that what he said to KUAM was about the present ownership of the property, NOT about its acquisition 14 years ago. 

And the subterfuge continues. 

Hon is desperate to make us think that the Deed Restriction is only a "source of grave dispute and division within our Church," and that all one needs to do is "rescind and annul it." Well if that was true then why isn't this August 18 "Announcement" stating that Hon has rescinded and annulled the Deed Restriction? Hon has all the same power as Apuron - who he says was ordered "more than a year ago" to rescind and annul it. So why hasn't Hon done what the pope ordered Apuron to do?

He hasn't done it because he CAN'T. And he CAN'T for the same reason Apuron could not. The property DOES NOT belong to the archdiocese ("no doubt about it!). Therefore neither Apuron nor Hon has the authority to "rescind and annul" the Deed Restriction. In fact, Hon admits this in his last paragraph by imploring "that community" (interesting that he will not name it), "to spontaneously and effectively renounce...the benefit obtained from the Archdiocese of Agana.

L - O - FREAKING L

Ummmmmm, seriously man, we're just not that stupid. If Hon can chastise Apuron for not carrying out the Holy See's order to rescind and annul the deed, then why is he now calling on RMS to do it? 

The truth is that neither Hon nor RMS can rescind or annul anything, and once again, Hon, in his own statement, tells us why: "Such act of concession was not done in a usual way by an internal Ecclesiastical agreement, but by the Declaration of Deed Restriction filed in the local Government of Guam in November 2011.

Hon is saying what we have been saying all along. The "Deed Restriction" acted as an instrument of "absolute  conveyance in fee simple," and what was "conceded" (Hon's word) was title to real property. 

RMS and Hon can shout "rescind and annul" all day long and it won't mean a damn thing because the only thing that can reverse a legal instrument of conveyance of title to real property is another instrument of conveyance of title to real property. 

And then we get to WHO it is that can execute said instrument, and it is NOT Hon! It is only the Board of Directors of RMS or its authorized delegate. But even then, per its incorporating documents, the Board of Guarantors has to approve. And that would be Giuseppe and Claudia Gennarini as well as either Apuron or Angelo Poschetti in order to have a majority. 

Well good luck with that. Hon doesn't even know where Apuron is. 

P.S. David C, Jackie T, and Elizabeth B... we haven't forgot about you.

  2. So, apuron defied the Pope! (PDN, front page Aug. 19, 2016). What is apuron's punishment for disobedience, and disobedience to the Pope, at that!

    Thanks, Tim, for reminding us that Hon has been everything except completely "hon"est with us!

    Thanks, Tim, for reminding us that Hon has been anything but "hon"est with us.

  3. For what it's worth at the moment before the what's next, Abh Hon!--BIBA GUAM Katoliko!

    What's troubling Guam/America and the world today: “We have gone on the assumption too long that if we were free, we would discover the Truth. Our Blessed Lord has put it the other way around: “The Truth will make you free.” This means that real liberation comes from the knowledge of the purpose and destiny of man. Our indifference to truth has resulted in our loss of the passion for Truth. The result is that today there are very few ideals for which a man would die, or even suffer sacrifice. Our false broadmindedness, if we only knew it, is born of our loss of faith and certitude. As we forget the purpose of life, we lose the dynamism to attain it; as we lose the basic certainties of life, we also lose the energy to strive for them. Because we have lost our passion for truth, justice, and righteousness, a lethargy and an apathy have so seized our civilization that we find it difficult to defend even the ordinary loyalties of life. We have no strong passion for great causes, no great hatred of evil, but only half-drawn swords and one-fisted battles; we have thrown away our maps of life and know not which way to turn. It is horrible to contemplate, but there is probably not enough love of truth in the world to start a crusade.”

  4. My fisherman friends, whom I call Apostles of the Deep, were congratulating me last night over Hon's announcement. I told them that it's still going to be a long road to getting the Yona property back, and echoed Tim's argument. They got even more upset. Maybe we can argue that Apuron's offer of the property was coerced, fraudulent, and that he had no capacity to do what he did. Anyway, the 2016 Guam International Fishing Derby is postponed to mid-September.

  5. Tim, I too had some funny feeling about AB Hon for just now acknowledging who is the rightful Owner of this Property. I am sorry, but I do not believe he is sincere and I smell something fishy here. It's my gut feeling and it's just the way this is now just happening. People of Guam, do not let you guard down.

  6. Yes, let's continue the discussion of David C, Jackie Terlaje, and Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson and their role in this land scam. Hopefully, we could join Michael Borja and Title Guaranty of Guam into the conversation as well.

  7. What other assets of the Archdiocese of Agana were secretly conveyed or secretly sold to the Neos or to others for apuron's personal gain? Dakon Kim of the Chancery needs to be questioned about this matter.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Okay. . .Hon admits the Chancery and Apuron made a big BOO BOO, and gave away a valuable piece of property to the RMS corporation controled by the Neocatechumenal Way leeches. Pope told Apuron to get that property back one way or another. He did not do it. Hon could begin that process when he came, but he tried to let it go, and instead called for unity and peace. . yeah, right. Okay, he then makes an appeal to the Neocatechumenal Way bosses to please give the property back to the Archdiocese of Agana, because the WAY it was conveyed was not correct. Obviously, Archbishop Hon does not want to use a stronger description of how it was fraudulently and deceitfully conveyed to the RMS corporation by Apuron, and that it was a violation of Canon Law and the trust of the Church in Guam. I'll give him credit for throwing Apuron under the bus when he said he was told by the Holy See to get that property back. Sorry, it is easier said than doing it. Another bone thrown at us with no meat at all on it.

    What we also have to watch is: THAT SEMINARY IS A SCAM!!! One thing to get the property back, and good luck at that--Archbishop Hon would have to file a lawsuit in Court to get that property back, unless the NCW bosses have a change of heart and sign off on a Deed of Conveyance of the RMS property back to the Archdiocese of Agana; but it must not stop there! We must close that Seminary and kick out the NCW from Guam. They are the root cause of the division, Archbishop Hon! Are you wearing rose-colored glasses, huh? File the lawsuit to get the property back, if your effort within the next week to have the NCW leaders sign a Deed to return the property does not work. Then, coincidental with that--suspend all activities at that Seminary, and then close it for good!!!! Then you have accomplished one big hurdled. Alongside this, prioritize taking care of the victims of sex abuse by the Clergy. They need the loving arms of the Church. CCOG and the laity are doing their part. We know you are working on this. But we are watching you!

  9. Too much BS coming out of Hon's mouf...he thinks he's talking to a bunch of idiots...feel like throwing up!

  10. Quoting from Guampdn:

    "Hon said the property belongs to the Archdiocese, but its use was deeded away, indefinitely, to the seminary and institute."

    I didn't think the "institute" had anything to do with the Deed Restriction? Is it true that the use of the property was deeded to the "seminary and institute" or rather that it was deeded to the RMS Corporation?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Let's be very clear. Hon has NOT admitted that title to the property was conveyed to RMS (given away). And the more he says that it "belongs to the Archdiocese" the deeper the hole he digs for himself. This is a LIE and he knows it's a LIE. The presenters last Thursday, in front of Hon and the Presbyteral Council, explained quite clearly that the deed restriction conveyed title to the property to RMS. The only way for the property to be returned is through an instrument of conveyance (deed). And such an instrument is a public document so everyone will be able to see it if and when it is completed, so Hon needs to come clean now!

  12. Father Jeff, how about throwing the RMS under the bus with your committee report. Seems fair...as the NCW is accustomed both to throwing and being thrown to the bottom of things a lot of the times. Go ahead, Pale, be a Chamorro and stand up against these Spainard haoles and other whoevers.

    4. Anonymous August 19, 2016 at 12:54 PM - A Casino might not be a bad idea to generate money to reimburse the Diocese the millions that Apuron just flittered away to his Master which, in Apuron's case, is not God, Our Father Almighty! BiBa Katoliku!

  16. Now lets think about this, There is the counsel of the Archdiocesan attorney advising against transferring title as it is in essence giving away the property, then there is the finance council who are reputable members of the community warning the bishop against transferring the title, the opinion of real estate attorney that confirms that the RMS property was given away, All the fiasco with the transfer of title to cover up and make it appear that the Archdiocese owns the property, the admittance of Gennerini that RMS was transferred to protect it as an asset in the case of lawsuits against the church, as many dioceses in the states have done. And we are expected to believe Hon? All I can say is Hon, Wok Wong Wit You? Who is consulting you to give you sound advise on the matters of the RMS property. Your haphazard advise that "The archdiocese owns that property. No doubt of it." and then changing your story is raising more doubts about your integrity, you seem to be operating the same as Apuron, with lies begetting more lies, deceit after deceit, tell us the truth, quit being wishy washy...
