“Collusion Delusion,” “An Illegal Takedown that Failed” WH/Media Round-Up, plus MH Stock Updates

March 25th, 2019

CNNmone3.25.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsIt’s dominated broadcast, internet, satellite, and cable news for nearly 2 years.  When the word broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report had been delivered to Attorney General Barr and that it exonerated the president, his campaign, and all Americans on the issue of a falsely claimed collusion with Russia, many went into disbelief.  Because there was no collusion, you can’t obstruct a non-existent crime. Numbers of politicians and the left-of-center media had said the opposite for nearly two years.  They claimed the evidence was supposedly pervasive, that when reality struck this weekend, it must seem like the episode from the 1980s series Dallas, when Bobby Ewing appears in the shower alive, a year after he was supposedly dead.  Bobby Ewing’s death was all a dream in a story-writer’s mind, but in this modern true-to-life case of misleading narratives, the writers are jurnos in mainstream news.  Ouch.  Some of those reactions to the end of “collusion delusion” is our feature for this evening’s otherwise mixed but largely calm day on the markets.


If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


First, let’s start with President Trump’s statement shortly after the news broke

Then, this summary from Fox.


The White House sent out some pull quotes from mainstream media that they liked.

The Collusion Delusion

Democrats have been consumed for two years with a flimsy conspiracy theory aimed at delegitimizing a presidential election they lost,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes. “But it’s over now. An exhaustive federal investigation just put the nail in the coffin of the collusion delusion. If the Democrats and our major media are capable of shame, they will be chastened by this experience.”

The results of the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller are a tremendous vindication for President Trump and the many millions of Americans who never doubted his innocence. The findings prove, once and for all time, that he won the 2016 election fair and square,” Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post.  “No American — not a single one — took the Russian bait. And that includes every member of the Trump campaign.”

Press credibility has taken a hit,” University of Tennessee Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds writes in USA Today.The news media chose to run with the Russia story, which quickly morphed from ‘hacking’ to the more nebulous ‘collusion,’ quite credulously. They did so because they wanted it to be true, because they hoped it would hurt Trump, whom the press almost universally despises, and because it was good for ratings and clicks.”

Last week, President Trump “signed an executive order to authorize the denial of federal funds to colleges that suppress student free-speech rights,” F.H. Buckley writes in the New York Post. Students who express conservative views on college campuses have been routinely denounced across the country—but no more, says President Trump. “The federal government awards billions to our universities; top schools get a billion apiece. That’s going to stop, he said, if they don’t honor free-speech rights.”

In the Washington Examiner, Melissa Quinn reports that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will go to Beijing this week for continued high-level trade negotiations. “The talks will begin March 28 and are ‘aimed at improving the trade relationship between the United States and China.’  Recall that MHProNews cited Alan Dershowitz, a Project Veritas undercover video, and other sources  starting almost 2 years ago that said then, what we know now.  The allegation, properly understood, wasn’t a crime. A CNN producer said on a hidden camera that the Russia collusion story was a ‘nothing burger’ almost 2 years ago.  But the nation and the markets suffered for nothing.  We’ll see how much of this impact Democrats and those that went along for the collusion delusion ride.
