Draft EO for Trump Administration AntiTrust Order Obtained by MHProNews

September 24th, 2018 No comments

 

DraftEOTrumpAdmininstrationAntiTrustOrderObtainedbyMHProNews

Longtime manufactured housing industry readers know that the issues of monopoly or antitrust concerns have grown in recent years.  These relate to several sources of perceived antitrust threats that debatably harm independents, consumers, the economy, and others in the industry.

 

There are obviously voices and agendas on each side of the issues that follow. 

President Donald J. Trump, and members of his administration, have increasingly voiced antitrust concerns in the areas surrounding certain tech giants and their perceived bias. That bias impacts the content and news Americans are exposed to in searches and social media feeds.  As Brad Parscale (see linked article further below) and others have argued, that in turn threatens election outcomes, and thus the democratic process. 

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has led the industry’s coverage about such anxieties, along with how it is potentially interrelated to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway brands, and their alleged efforts to establish a monopoly in manufactured housing.

So, the start of serious antitrust activity by the Trump Administration that aims at Google or Facebook should not be seen as being limited to those subjects alone.  Indeed, the president himself has signaled other possible targets of such anti-monopolistic federal legal actions. 

With that introduction, and noting the linked related reports herein and below, let’s provide the full text of the White House draft of an Executive Order (EO), geared at antitrust action, as provided by Business Insider. Note that the typo below is in the original.  It will be followed with additional commentary, links, and analysis.

EXECUTIVE ORDER TO PROTECT COMPETITON AND SMALL BUSINESSES FROM BIAS IN ONLINE PLATFORMS 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to protect American consumers and workers and encourage competition in the U.S. economy, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Online platforms are central to American commerce and the free flow of news and information. Whether reading news or looking for local businesses, citizens rely on search, social media, and other online platforms to provide objective and reliable information to shape a host of decisions ranging from consumer purchases to votes in elections. Because of their critical role in American society, it is essential that American citizens are protected from anticompetitive acts by dominant online platforms. Vibrant competition in the online ecosystem is essential to ensuring accountability for the platforms that hold so much sway over our economy and democratic process. 

[Can expand this section, if necessary, to provide more detail on role of platforms and the importance of competition]

 

Section 2. Agency Responsibilities. (a) Executive departments and agencies with authorities that could be used to enhance competition among online platforms (agencies) shall, where consistent with other laws, use those authorities to promote competition and ensure that no online platform exercises market power in a way that harms consumers, including through the exercise of bias.

(b) Agencies with authority to investigate anticompetitive conduct shall thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws, as defined in subsection (a) of the first section of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. § 12, or any other law intended to protect competition.

(c) Should an agency learn of possible or actual anticompetitive conduct by a platform that the agency lacks the authority to investigate and/or prosecute, the matter should be referred to the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Competition of the Federal Trade Commission. 

(d) Not later than 30 days from the date of this order, agencies shall submit to the Director of the National Economic Council an initial list of (1) actions each agency can potentially take to protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias; (2) any relevant authorities and tools potentially available to enhance competition among and protect the users of online platforms.

(e) Not later than 60 days from the date of this order, agencies shall report to the President, through the Director of the National Economic Council, recommendations on agency-specific actions in response to paragraphs (d) of this section. Such recommendations shall include a list of priority actions, including rulemakings, as well as timelines for completing those actions.

 

Section 3. General Provisions. (a) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(b) Independent agencies are strongly encouraged to comply with the requirements of this order. 

(c) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i)   the authority granted by law to a department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals. 

(d) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Brad Says POTUS Trump is Right: More than Facebook & Twitter, Google Threatens Democracy, Online Freedom

Bloomberg and MHProNews reported last year that one of Warren Buffett’s more significant concerns is supposedly the threat of the breakup of Berkshire Hathaway. That breakup, should it occur, would be under some type of antitrust action, which could be initiated by federal regulators.  It could also involve civil antitrust cases, which can bring up to triple damages for a prevailing party.

Should serious antitrust case(s) occur, as it directly relates to manufactured housing, it would likely be caused by trend lines, facts, and factors such as those linked in the report and related video found in the linked report, below.

 

Smoking Gun 3 – Warren Buffett, Kevin Clayton, Clayton Homes, 21st Mortgage Corp Tim Williams – Manufactured Home Lending, Sales Grab?

 

Any breakup or other major legal action that targets Berkshire, Clayton Homes, and their lending units would arguably send shock waves through the HUD Code home industry. It would have serious repercussions for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), which is widely seen as dominated by Warren Buffett led Berkshire’s MH industry brands.

Antitrust action may create an array of opportunities and activities for others not seen for over a decade in manufactured housing, for reasons that N.Y. Stern Professor Scott Galloway has expressed.

 

 

MHProNews will continue to monitor and report on this developing story. “We Provide, You Decide.” (C)

CNNmoney9.21.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsFacts are facts. The Washington Post (WaPo) is owned by Jeff Bezos, a pro-Obama, pro-Clinton Democratic supporter. In May 2016, as President Barack Obama’s presidency was moving towards its close, WaPo reported, “But we have not seen a major shift in [antitrust] enforcement under Obama.” Slate is another left leaning media source. In an article entitled, “Yes, there is an antitrust case against Amazon,” they said “The Obama administration probably wouldn’t have either, and neither would a [Secretary] Clinton…”  There are signals that President Trump will be different, and that will be a key part of our market focus this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

GoogleOthersTouchingMHVilleTakeBigStepTowardAntiTrustPlusMHMarketUpdates

Google, AntiTrust, MHVille

Why does this report matter to MHVille?  Several reasons.  Let’s tick them off before diving in.

  • The issue of monopoly has arguably harmed manufactured housing for several years. That’s true from the tech giants, and from operations such as Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway’s manufactured housing units.
  • Google, social media, and others in media have significant impact on how people learn about manufactured homes. Skewed results will impact perceptions, and thus sales.
  • Leaders from the tech giants are increasingly getting involved in affordable housing, because they are sitting on piles of cash.

With that brief backdrop, the news about Google could in hindsight prove to be part of the tipping point that will move the Trump Administration toward more antitrust action.

The news about this particular issue has been unevenly reported in the mainstream media, but leaked internal reports indicate that Google had discussions last year to modify search results involving the then proposed Trump travel ban.  That was part of a mosaic that includes allegations that Google had a cozy relationship with the Obama Administration.  In April of 2016, the Daily Mail reported that meetings between executives from Google at the White House “took place at least 427 times.”

So while this specific issue involved the travel ban, it should be seen as part of concerns over a broader pattern of pro-left wing, anti-Trump activity.

As a reminder that tees up the videos that follow, raw video from Google anti-Trump travel ban protests last year are in the video posted below.

 

Fox Business issued this report on this leaked memo.

 

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson issued this report.

 

Google denies that they ever initiated this discussion.  But isn’t the fact that there was a discussion about skewing search results over a political issue by one of the richest and most powerful companies in the world.

An August 2, 2018 report by the Guardian said that:Google [is] working on censored search engine’ for China…” If they are willing to do it for China, what’s to keep them from doing it in the U.S.?

Third party images are provided under fair use guidelines.

Even with a backdrop of trade tensions, the solid economy is winning out, and it drove the Dow Jones Industrial Average to return to the record high that it set back in Jan. 26, when it closed at 26,616.71. The Dow was up by triple digits on Thursday, eclipsing the January highs intra-day,” said Fox Business today.

  • Weekly jobless claims reported Thursday fell to a 49-year low.
  • the unemployment rate in the country is 3.9 percent,
  • and the U.S.’ revised GDP grew by 4.2 percent in the second quarter.

The discussion on Fox Business below has two different sides of the ‘trade skirmish’ issue.  Johnny Tamny’s views stands in contrast to what the Daily Business News published last night.

 

Our view, and that of a growing number of pundits, is that Payne Capital Management President Ryan Payne is closer to the mark.

The White House press room reminds MHProNews of this Washington newspaper’s recent analysis: “Democrats may be attacking President Trump’s trade actions with China, but the President’s latest move “is not rattling investors. That was the message from traders Tuesday, who sent stock averages soaring in the face of the latest round of American tariffs on Chinese imports and Beijing’s retaliatory response,” according to Liz Peek in The Hill.

One modest bone we want to pick with Fox Business. Several of their pundits have been saying for some time variations of this phrase: “The U.S. economy is firing on all cylinders…” The Daily Business News respectfully sees it somewhat differently.

The economy is poised to fire on all cylinders. Here’s what could still improve, and may, depending on the outcome of the midterms:

  • Tightening up the borders and then reforming immigration would be good for business and workers mid-to-long term,
  • pressing ahead on trade – the U.S. can win either way: either brining more business and jobs back to the U.S, or by reducing the trade imbalances,
  • moving ahead on infrastructure plans, so far, foiled by Democrats (who’ve kept the border/immigration deal from occurring too).
  • There’s more, but here’s what else could be huge. Reforming the budget/spending process. The president is a natural at budget cutting, and has shrunk the federal labor force quietly but steadily.  If a solid pro-Trump legislature comes in, expect the following:
  • 1) Major overhaul in the federal spending, and a move towards a balanced budget,
  • 2) legal/legislative action against monopolistic forces,
  • 3) making the tax cuts permeant, and other possible tax changes which could bring yet more foreign investment into the U.S., plus
  • 4) other surprises that are still ahead.

Mark your calendar.  Vote your wallet, get your circle to do the same come the midterms.  Do what scores of your peers do, and share these posts and the most popular emailed news in MHVille.

promised in the U.S. are now off. Long-time Daily Business News on MHProNews readers may recall that Ma was one of those that made the trek to Trump Tower during the 2016 transition, promising jobs and investments in the U.S. That’s when the now revoked “1 million jobs” were promised.

Ma also said, per Bloomberg, that Alibaba and China must prepare for a “twenty year trade war”  with the U.S., one that will extend far beyond the Trump Administration.

Bloomberg reports that “China needs to strengthen its economy to deal with the conflict and shift trade relations from the U.S. to regions like Southeast Asia and Africa, Ma said during a speech at the company’s investor day conference in Hangzhou.”

Short term, business communities in China, U.S., Europe will all be in trouble,” Ma said, according to Bloomberg as he paced a stage in an open white dress shirt and punctuating his remarks with forceful jabs. “This thing will last long. If you want a short-term solution, there is no solution.”

Bloomberg’s commentary in the video below is interesting.

 

The Dow and the S&P rose again, despite reports like that that the trade war could get worse. Investors are beginning to adjust.

Editorially and logically, it made no sense for the United States to ship factories and jobs overseas for decade. But that was arguably particularly true with Communist China. Democratic and Republican administrations alike share the blame for a policy that saw more wealth go overseas, that funded a growing Chinese military, that caused the U.S. to have to spend ever more on the military too.  To pay for a growing federal debt, especially during Presidents George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, the U.S. borrowing included China.

The Bloomberg analyst in the video suggests that President Trump may not be interested in making a trade deal.  He may be more interested in bringing those industries and jobs back to the U.S.  But either way – with an improved trade deal, or with more jobs and investments coming back to the U.S., the net result could be an ever rosier investment position for the U.S.

The biggest caveat could be the 2018 midterms.  Readers are reminded that in 2016, MHProNews was one of the few that said for weeks pre-election that their were several reasons to believe that Donald J. Trump could win, despite the headlines from polls that widely proclaimed Secretary Hillary Clinton as winner. That same thing could happen in 2018, but it all depends on turn out.  Issues like the one below will be among the drivers. Stay tuned.

If Dems Seriously Want Senate, Texans Beto O’Rourke vs Ted Cruz Key Contest, Plus MH Market Updates

September 18th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.18.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsLet’s note that new tariffs between China and the U.S. today still witnessed a strong day on Wall Street. There’s growing signs that the market is ‘getting it’ on the “America First,” POTUS Trump trade battle. That said, let’s pivot to a key Senate contest. If Democrats are going to do more than talk about trying to capture the U.S. Senate in the upcoming midterms, they will have to go through Texas. Democrat Beto O’Rourke has had a ton of money pouring in. Will that make the difference? The latest will be our spotlight this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

IfDemsSeriouslyWantSenateTexansBetoO'RourkeTedCruzKeyContestDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

The Fort Worth, TX Star Telegram has two brief videos that give each of the two major Senate Candidates their respective say.

Beto O’Rourke

 

Ted Cruz

 

In spite of what Representative O’Rourke (D) said, the big money is actually more on his side of the aisle. Some of the world’s richest people are pro-Democratic, and those Democratic billionaires support that party with their wallets and with their considerable influence.

Much of the mainstream media has hyped this as a looming upset.  But the latest polling by Quinnipiac University, which routinely tilt’s left, shows the Democratic O’Rourke 9 points behind the incumbent Cruz.  Per Quinnipiac, Cruz gets the nod from 54 percent of likely voters, versus 45 percent for the Democratic challenger.

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has noted in editorial analysis that Democrats pledge to reverse tax cuts, and want to impeach the president, even though there is no material evidence after two years of investigations of alleged ‘collusion’ between his campaign and Russia. In the upcoming book, Fear, but reporter Bob Woodward, he shook the tree for any sign of any collusion.  He’s in that anti-Trump orbit, and said he found no evidence.  But as MHProNews has reported for over a year, the alleged ‘collusion’ is not a crime.

With 7 weeks until the midterms, it will be all about turnout.  The left is loud, and has a wide array of mainstream news and social media support that creates an echo chamber effect.  But with black, Hispanic, women, Asian unemployment at record low levels, and more blacks and Hispanics saying the favor President Trump and his policies, can it be as bad as some tilted polling suggests?

Record consumer and small business confidence should play to the President Trump’s favor, and he’s proven he has coattails for candidates he supports.

It will be an exciting ride in the next 7 weeks.  Don’t just stay tuned, share the information that will cause the undecided to get out and vote for more growth. See the related report, linked below.

HUGE Hurricane Florence Damage Estimates, Plus Manufactured Housing Industry Updates

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

HUGEHurricaneFlorenceDamageEstimatesPlusManufacturedHousingIndustryUpdates

CNBC reports that property damage from Hurricane Florence is estimated at $17 billion to $22 billion, and that forecast could be conservative, depending on further flooding, according to Moody’s Analytics.

Economists so far see a minimal impact to growth from the hurricane, which Moody’s sees shaving 0.2 percentage points from third-quarter GDP.

That may explain why the markets have not reflected a major disruption as a result of the tragic results of Hurricane Florence.

But late last week, analytics and housing firm CoreLogic put their estimate at some $170 billion.  That’s a huge difference, obviously.

As has been previously noted, there are manufactured home communities, business, and residents who have been impacted by the storm.

Thousands of FEMA Manufactured Housing Units (MHU) have been pre-positioned.  Depending on how flooding plays out, thousands of more could be needed.

The bottom line for now is wait and see.  It could take days, perhaps a week or more, before all of the flooding and related damage plays out. See the related reports, linked below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

TheyreCriminalsWhenItComesToTradeChinaUSBattlePlusMHMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewMHProNews

President Donald J. Trump has been making the case for years that the U.S.’ leadership has engaged in terrible trade deals going back several decades.  For example, he blasted the Clinton era for NAFTA.  He’s said that the WTO structure and China’s place within it is flawed. He dumped President Obama’s deal on Pacific-Asian trade.

 Why?

 The short answer is that it cost the U.S. good manufacturing jobs.  Former President Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in support of Secretary Hillary Clinton that 2 percent GDP was the new normal.  Mr. Obama said that Donald Trump didn’t have “a magic wand” that he could wave to “get better trade deals.”

Both GOP and Democratic presidents going back to the Clinton era have said that China has cheated on trade, but no one has seriously taken China on, until now.

The panel discussion below was prior to the closing bell, so it didn’t reflect the fact that most markets had actually gained slightly by the end of the day, following an initial drop when the next round of tariffs were announced.

It is obvious that even these Fox Business talking heads are not all on board with President Trump’s trade strategies.  In fact, some question that there is a strategy. 

That said, the video is keen on several levels. One is the headline quote from Charlie Gasparino. But more important are some of the nuanced comments floated during the discussion.

Among them is that the U.S. can benefit from these tactics in more than one way. 

·        Better trade deals can emerge, and the EU, Mexico and other nations have signaled that they are ready to make more favorable deals with the U.S.

·        If the tariffs fail to create a new deal, some producers will shift manufacturing to the U.S.

In short, either way, the Trump Administration can win mid-to-long term for American businesses, investors and workers.  The alternative is more of the same experienced for the last 2 plus decades.  For national security reasons alone, it was inconceivable not to defend American industrial capacity, especially in areas like steel, aluminum and energy production.

It’s one of several tough, gutsy, but debatably correct strategies that the 45th president has undertaken.

House Panel Passes Tax Cuts 2.0, Stocks Rise, Plus MH Market Updates

September 13th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.13.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe Dow pushed over 26,000 today, with several contributing factors.  No doubt, one of them was the news that the House passed out of committee a bill that Speaker Paul Ryan says they plan to vote on before the end of this month. Tax Cut 2.0 will be our focus for this evening.

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 –

HousePanelPassesTaxCut2.0StocksRisePaulRyanPhotoMHMarketUPdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Portions of this evenings report are from CNBC, which also provided a reasonably balanced look at what Democrats and Republicans are saying about the second round of tax cuts and reform bill, which was passed out of committee today.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) – which is 325,000 members strong, and which reports including hundreds of manufactured housing member-companies – supports the measure.

Among the highlights:

  • The bill was passed by the House Ways and Means Committee, and now cleared for a floor vote in the House would lock in already-passed tax changes affecting individuals, including lower rates and a variety of rules affecting what taxpayers can deduct.
  • A separate measure focuses on expanding the use of retirement and 529 education savings accounts, including the elimination of the 70½ age limit for contributions to individual retirement accounts.
  • The legislation also creates Universal Savings Accounts, which would be similar to Roth IRAs but without restrictions on how the withdrawals could be used.

The report that follows fails to mention that under Democratic President John F. Kennedy, and GOP President Ronald Reagan, tax cuts resulted in a short term revenue dip, followed by a surge in federal tax revenues. The reason, per economic experts, is because lower taxes spur investment, which spurs growth and eventually results in more taxes.

New Records Achieved, Who Gets JOLT Credit? Surprising Insights for MHVille

September 13th, 2018 No comments

 

NewRecordsAchievedWhoGetsJOLTCreditSurprisingInsightsMHVilleDailyBUsinessNewsMHProNews

The U.S. Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLT) Survey reported a new high this week, approaching the 7 million mark.  Those in manufactured housing are all-too-familiar with this number in a practical way, because factory-builders and others tell the Daily Business News on MHProNews that competition for labor is growing more intense.

 

 

CNBC’s breakdown of the Labor Department data revealed the following highlights:

 

  • Vacancies outnumbered those classified as unemployed by 659,000 for the month, an unprecedented trend that began earlier this year. Openings rose by 117,000 from June, to 6.94 million, and are up 737,000 over the past year, a nearly 12 percent increase, the department said in its monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey.
  • The “quits” rate, an indicator of worker confidence as it measures those who left their positions voluntarily, also hit a record of 3.6 million, a gain of 106,000, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics records that go back to December 2000. The quits rate of 2.4 percent is the highest recorded since April 2001 and was up one-tenth of a percentage point from a month ago.
  • Professions registering the biggest gains in job openings were finance and insurance at 46,000 and nondurable goods manufacturing, with 32,000. Openings decreased in retail (-85,000), educational services (-34,000) and federal government (-19,000).
  • New hires totaled 5.68 million, a marginal increase from June but also a series high and an increase of 3.3 percent from the same month a year ago.

MHProNews curates information from a variety of sources across the left-right divide for good reasons. Among them, doing so provides a reality check to those who only get their news mainly from media that lean left, or lean right.

CNBC is left-leaning, and tends to be anti-Trump and pro-Democratic.  Who says?  Among others, former CBS News investigative correspondent in their Washington bureau, award-winner – and now independent journalist, Sharyl Attkisson.

CNBCLeftRightMediaSharylAttkissonDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

So this analysis by Jeff Cox of CNBC on who should get credit for the economic records being achieved is all-the-more interesting.

 

What MH Associations, Trade Groups Say

Manufacturing has also reported new records.  The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), a trade association of some 325,000 members – which sources there say includes hundreds from the manufactured housing industry – has also hit new highs in business confidence.

Regrettably, while many sectors are hitting new records, manufactured housing is still struggling to crawl back to the 100,000-shipment level.  This is one of many reasons why the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) – an independent-producers (HUD Code home production) trade association – has for years said that a new post-production association is needed.

Double-Digit HUD Code Manufactured Home Production Growth In July 2018, MHARR

The Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) is the industry’s self-proclaimed umbrella trade group – including production and post-production – members.  Their own claim puts the onus on them to lead a more robust retail sales recovery.  MHI messages to their affiliates and members routinely take credit for almost anything that might appear to be good coming out of Washington, but the bottom line numbers are a metric that they can’t – or shouldn’t – ignore.

The new manufactured home shipments data tell a different story than the one that the overall U.S. economy is experiencing.

Why?

It’s an important issue for every independent, some of whom never experienced the industry’s higher producing glory days.  As a recent MHProNews report reveals, RV’s went from trailing manufactured housing in 1998, to surpassing manufactured housing only a few years later.  Today, RVs outsell manufactured housing by some 5 to 1.

RVsshipmentsTrailedMH1998WinnebagoDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

MHI?  What about what MHI award-winner Marty Lavin called the “Big Boys” – including those associated with Berkshire Hathaway?

How do those ‘big boys’ and the association they dominate explain closing 100 sales centers in recent years, while RVs continue to grow?

SoTheAssociationMHIIsNotThereFortheIndustryUnlesstheinterestsoftheBigBoysJointheIndustry'sMartyLavinMHIAwardWinnerQuoteMHProNews

MHProNews looks at the facts, considers the sources, and follows the evidence. MHI earlier last year, and for years before, MHI routinely replied promptly to all inquiries. But since we’ve spotlighted the problems and concerns, they’ve gone silent. Why? If the facts are on their side, why not make offer a cogent explanation?

Clayton’s Surprising Result – Sunday Morning Weekly Recap, MH Headline Reports and News in Review Aug 19 to Aug 26, 2018

How can the industry continue to struggle by historical terms, during an affordable housing crisis?  With the amazing spread in housing costs between conventional and manufactured homes, how can manufactured housing be struggling to recover to even 100,000 new home shipments?

There are a growing number of industry voices that believe that BH/CMH and MHI have by various action/inaction has kept manufactured home sales at historically low levels. Evidence for the allegations and concerns on this page? See Related Reports and videos, linked below, which quotes and cites BH, MHI, CMH, 21st Mortgage Corp, and other sources.

The silence of MHI and Clayton on such bottom-line issues that really matter – like new home sales levels – is deafening, isn’t it?

ManufacturedHomeMHShipments1990-2017DailybusinessNewsManufacturedHousingMHProNews

President Donald J. Trump promises reforms in regulatory and taxation that would spur job growth. He’s delivering on those promises, as NFIB and other groups have applauded.

As the midterms loom, keep in mind four words that President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who hails from manufactured home producing Indiana, have been saying for months: “Promises Made, Promises Kept.”

“Growth,” “Fight on to Victory,” “One People, One Family, and One Glorious Nation Under God”

The ability for independents, and businesses of all sizes, to success in a pro-business, pro-jobs growth environment are obvious.

The fact that many of these JOLT report jobs are in sectors that former President Barack Obama said were never coming back proves just how wrong he and Secretary Hillary Clinton were, and just how right the policy proposals of the Trump team have been.

 

Clayton, Clintons, Buffett, Then and Now…

There are those in the industry who take a ‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil,’ approach. But as Albert Einstein once observed, if you had an hour to devise a plan to solve a problem, he’d spend 55 minutes learning the background issues related to the problem, and then would spend 5 minutes devising and proposing the solution. Yesterday, MHProNews provided the following report, which has already had thousands of hits.

“Toxic Trailers” – Clayton Homes, Warren Buffett, Kevin Clayton, Clintons – Exposé Videos

With that above report in mind, the following video documentary on the Clintons takes on a new meaning.

This video is an hour and 4o minute long, so you better do this during off time.  The documentary video walks viewers step-by-step, interviewing state and federal investigators, witnesses, and shows corroborating documents. As an FYI for those considering the claims in the video below who may be new to such issues, the Clintons both were associated with Arkansas’ Rose Law Firm. Note that a simple Google search will turn up several articles from mainstream media that confirm many of the topical allegations raised.

The above concerns and controversies noted, why did Warren Buffett and the Claytons want anything to do with the Clintons?  Donald J. Trump has said that it pays to know as much as you can about something that affects your life or profession.  Doesn’t the advice by the businessman-turned-president make even more sense?
