Did MHProNews Miss This? MHI Insider News Tip – Following Evidence, Money

October 24th, 2018 Comments off



What a message that arrived at MHProNews HQ.



It said this.

Tony [MHProNews’ publisher], I’m wondering if you missed it.  You’ve [MHProNews] done articles lately on billionaires, Democrats, and of course on MHI [Manufactured Housing Institute]. I’m conservative [said the message], but my colleagues and I give to Democrats.  We are members of MHI too. Think of Democrats and MHI as protection rackets. That’s the bottom line.”


Wow.  And ouch.

Sources in California have pointed to something similar.

Per those sources, manufactured home industry professionals are giving to Democratic candidates there, not because they necessarily believe in them or their policies.  Rather, it is because they want access, after an election.

Publisher L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach said, “We value feedback, input, and news-tips – especially those tips that come with documentation or evidence of a claim. That said, while we [MHProNews] could have expressed it differently, MHProNews has published similar points to those of the professional who sent the message.  Nevertheless, it is a useful insight – and appreciated – as it underscores concerns we’ve been publishing, and gives us an opportunity to clarify the concerns that pro raised.”

There are certainly various reasons why some company or person gives to a certain PAC, and/or candidates.  The following graphic is from NBC News.




For example, MarketWatch did a run-down of how certain CEOs – including Warren Buffett – have used their campaign donations, to support candidates from this or that – or both – political parties.



The two charts above reflect why MHProNews curates from a variety of sources. MarketWatch apparently wanted to use select data to make it appear that Republicans are getting more donations, but in fact the majority of campaign contributions are going to Democrats.



As MHProNews revealed recently, resident community group members often mistakenly believe that Democrats are the party of and for the poor.  But the data reflects what is shown on this page, and from the linked related reports.  Democrats have become the party of big money.  They are also often the party of purported monopolistic ‘moat builders.’



7 of the top 10 billionaires lean Democratic, per published data.


As MHProNews exclusively reported, key MHI members have backed Democrats in opposition to candidates that carried water for MHI on Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing.

GOP Senators to President-elect Trump: Fire CFPB Head Richard Cordray!

January 11th, 2017 Comments off

Republican Senators Bob Sasse (Neb.) and Mike Lee (Utah) penned a strongly worded letter to Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Monday, urging President-elect Donald Trump to remove Director Richard Cordray as head of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB).

It’s time to fire King Richard,” said Sasse, who also serves as a member of the Senate Banking Committee.

Underneath the CFPB’s Orwellian acronym is an attack on the American idea that the people who write our laws are accountable to the American people. President-elect Trump has the authority to remove Mr. Cordray and that’s exactly what the American people deserve.

According to CNN, the CFPB has declined to comment on the letter, but has said recently said that Cordray “has no plans to step down” and noted he was confirmed in 2013 by a bipartisan group of 66 senators.

That confirmation followed President Obama’s controversial recess appointment of Cordray in 2012.

The Daily Business News has followed the CFPB saga closely, including their involvement in the Wells Fargo case and a D.C. circuit court ruling that deemed the organization unconstitutional due to it’s lack of independent oversight.

The Constitution was written to protect the American people from unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats, said Senator Lee. “Considering the damage CFPB has done to credit unions and community banks, President Trump should act quickly to remove the director.

There are also those who have worked with the organization that see it as successful.

The CFPB ‘remarkably successful’ under Cordray,” said Patricia McCoy, a Boston College Law School professor who oversaw CFPB mortgage policy in 2011. McCoy pointed to the Wells Fargo case as evidence.

Daily Business News readers who have followed the history of the CFPB understand that the CFPB was not the lead agency in the case and during the time the events took place in 2011, the CFPB charter basically only allowed it to police the activity of big banks.

It did not catch the Wells Fargo activity at that time.

The Senators conclude the letter with an impassioned plea.

President Trump has the power to protect the American idea from this destructive view by removing Director Cordray. Director Cordray’s removal will be the first marker in the long process of rolling-back an agency that combines the powers of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches into the hands of a few unaccountable Washington elites.

Republican Strategy Shifts on Dodd-Frank

August 1st, 2011 Comments off

Photo Credit of Rep Michelle Bachman CBS news posted MHProNews.comBankInvestmentConsultant reports Republicans have moved from a strategy of repealing Dodd-Frank to amending it. The shift in GOP strategy is a result of a generally popular piece of financial reform legislation coupled with a lack of control of the U.S. Senate. Presidential contender Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), introduced a repeal bill in January that drew only nine co-sponsors. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the ranking Republican on the Banking Committee, and Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), have sponsored a repeal bill, which is headed no where. “My opinion is that the only opportunity for repealing large parts of Dodd-Frank is going to be 2013,” said Cato Institute financial regulation study director Mark Calabria, a former Republican staffer on the Senate Banking Committee. Many manufactured housing association leaders have shared a similar opinion to Calabria’s with, typically off the record.
