THE DEEP STATE AT THE UMATUNA

This article in the Umatuna is dated October 16, 2017, which means it will appear in this weekend's print version. The picture shows Deacon Frank Tenorio front and center. 


However, Deacon Tenorio was removed several months ago from his position at Kamalen Karidat. Sadly, Deacon Tenorio tarnished the image of Kamalin Karidat when he appeared in the infamous Edivaldo-produced "fist pump" video:

The Puppeteers with their puppet! from Undercover Neo on Vimeo.

According to our information, Tenorio is NOT involved with Kamalen Karidat in any capacity so apparently someone at the Umatuna wanted to make a statement by using this picture. 

It's a bad move

Faith and confidence in our archdiocesan leadership had just turned a corner with the announcement of the closure of RMS, with improved donations from the faithful on the horizon. 

We hope, Fr. Mike Crisostomo, the new director of Kamalen Karidat, will soon clear this up. And we hope as well that someone will start looking into the "deep state" that still exists at the chancery, especially at the Umatuna.

  1. I am sadden by the choice of photo selected by Umatuna..it does not reflect at all the new adminstration and its Vision,Mission and Goals....Kamalen Karidat since March 01 has been focusing on three areas...1.expanding its services to the North to the homeless and hungry...2..increasing its funding sources to support such an expansion...3..to establish and maintain a system of accountability and transparency thru an active board of directors, an effective accounting system, and soon financial reports to our benefactors and donors..Since the retirement of Deacon Tenorio, Kamalen Karidat, Inc., has been entrusted to me by Archbishop Byrnes...I along with the new Board of Directors and a dedicated program director, Ms.Doris Royal, and numerous and countless volunteers, continue the work and ministry to the homeless and those in need. I WELCOME any individual to come and visit us at Kusina Kamalen. Deacon Tenorio and Mrs.Tita Tenorio have retired and are enjoying their retirement life...They are no longer working actively or in a position of authority at Kamalen Karidat, Inc....that authority rests in the Archbishop,the Board, and I as the appointed Executive Director...a more appropiate photo could have been of all the volunteers that cook and serve every day at Kusina... please email me if u have any questions or
    concerns...palemike@yahoo.com

    Peace...Pale'Mike

    1. Create another true charitable organization. The name Kamalin Karidat was a corrupt organization under Apuron and Tenorio. Monies flowed in to help the poor but you guessed it--it went instead to Apuron and his cronies at the RMS and the Neocats. Close down Kamalen Karidat and investigate that organization. Establish a new organization to be transparent and accountable to the donors.

    The choice of photo, ultimately rests on the editorial task, before going to the final print. Having said that, the selection of this photo should not have even gone to the final editorial level. It should have been caught beforehand.

  3. Which only goes to prove that the Archdiocese is as corrupt and screwed up and as ever.

    Unfortunately, RMS will rise again because no one at the chancery knows what in hell they're doing. The evil NCW knows exactly how to exploit these terminal weaknesses.

    1. The NCW runs the Umatuna. Still.

    3. As in: the Director? Editor? Editorial Assistant? Graphic and Production Designer? Any or all of the above? Had my suspicions too, but when the new Publisher came on board I thought things would change.

  4. dakon tenorio 2.0

    A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.

    doesn't he look more frank…
    maybe even… candid, forthright, genuine, honest, reliable, sincere, truthful, trustworthy,

  5. Umatuna is a joke. Why does anyone read it? Just to see their names or pet projects in print, I guess.

    1. It's been a pathetic, self-stroking, piece of propaganda for years. I hear it costs EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS a week to publish. SMH.

    2. The Umatuna is another non-essential asset that Archbishop Byrnes should consider letting go.

    3. Agree with Anon at 12:55 AM. The paper is not an asset, however. It’s an operating cost by the Chancery that should be reviewed. An online version should be sufficient. My grandma knows how to browse the Internet. She won’t miss the print version and the photos she likes to see are so much better online.
