Some of us came to the United States legally. Others jump a border, cross the waters, overstay a visa, or otherwise find ways to ignore U.S. immigration laws.

 

We’ve covered this topic before, but this video clip highlights how this new wave of migrants on the southern border have adapted to the new reality. 

 

 

 

 

Illegal immigrants jump into the Rio Grande to be rescued by border agents in order to be ferried to the other side.

 

Former CIA officer Mike Baker discusses the debate over border security and whether the U.S. needs to be concerned about terrorists crossing the southern border.

AttorneyHarmeetDhillonGaslightingUsIgnoringThisAtYourPerilManufacturedHousingMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

There are few topics that investors, business professionals, or Americans at large should be more concerned about in the natural order than that of monopoly.  There are a variety of ways the tendency to monopolize is touching your life, day by day.  This is but one example of that nettlesome trend.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon is listed by Fox as a civil rights attorney, but according to her website “Her focus is in commercial litigation, employment law, First Amendment rights, and election law matters.” 

HarmeetDhillonWikiAttorneyGOPOfficialMHProNews

These companies [Big Tech] have built themselves up to monopoly power on the back of protectionist government regulation, says attorney Harmeet Dhillon.

We Will Lose Every Election Going Forward if We Don’t Stop This” said Dhillon.

Keep in mind that she is far from the only voice that’s sounding the alarm about big tech, the FAANG brands, or monopoly power in general. Flash back to the comments from pro-tech expert, NY Stern Professor Scott Galloway.

ScottGallowayL2MonopoliesWinnersLosersDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Keep in mind that one of the recent revelations – perhaps no surprise – is that Berkshire Hathaway has taken a position in Amazon.  The amount of their position was not revealed this past weekend but will become public soon enough. Buffett and Microsoft founder Bill Gates are all but connected at the hip, with his role and huge donation to the Gates Foundation indicate.

Rephrased, there are several reasons why the issue of the FAANGs, Berkshire Hathaway, and Microsoft – more specifically, the breakup of these firms under antitrust laws – ought to be a serious issue in Washington and beyond.

Tucker Carlson and Harmeet Dhillon Discuss Tech Giant Crackdown on Conservatives.  But think beyond her points to the sheer power that monopolies are exercising.

Ramadan 2019, Faith, Fear, Drama – plus Manufactured Housing Market Updates

CNNmone5.6.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsControversy for its own sake is not the goal here at MHProNews. There is a strong need to respect the rights for freedom of religion and free speech for all. At the same time, freedom should not be cover for extremism and violence. Tonight’s market report will be a bit different, as you will see.  On a day when trade talk (again) impact on the markets was a dominating topic, and there were more MH losers than gainers, we thought we’d shake it up on the start of Ramadan with this special report.

There are not enough who ponder how the largely open southern border is a security issue for not only criminal activity, but also possible terror.

At the same time, there is a rightfully a need to balance facts and fear. 

So we’ve provided a series of videos this evening, that cross the left-center-right spectrum on the issue of Islam and Ramadan. As this writer grew up in a predominantly Muslim nation, I could weigh in, but would prefer to handle it today, this way. Let’s see what others have to say.

Is Islam a Religion of Peace? 

Is Islam a religion of peace? Is it compatible with Western liberalism? Or does Islam need a reformation, just as Christianity had the Protestant Reformation? Somali-born author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali explains.

Jobs Surge in April, Unemployment Rate Falls to the Lowest Since 1969, plus Manufactured Home Market Updates

CNNmone5.3.2019ManufacturedHome-StocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsAgree or disagree with the Trump Administration on this or that, love or hate the president’s tweets, what is well documented from third party research is this.  Some 90 percent of the mainstream media’s reporting has been hostile. Given that reality, the White House press room provides the Daily Business News on MHProNews and others are ‘pull quotes’ from the mainstream that spotlights in someone else’s commentary that the administration sees as positive accomplishments. Rephrased, they curate content from other media, and package it under “West Wing Reads.” Since the jobs report would have been a staple for MHProNews, this month we’ll take those pull quotes for tonight’s Friday night spotlight market report.

On a day when the Russell and the other 3 major markets rose, and the manufactured housing industry connected tracked stocks largely rose, here’s our report for tonight.

Jobs Surge in April, Unemployment Rate Falls to the Lowest Since 1969

“The U.S. jobs machine kept humming along in April, adding a robust 263,000 new hires while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6%, the lowest in a generation, according to a Labor Department report Friday,” Jeff Cox reports in CNBC. The American economy “easily beat Wall Street expectations of 190,000 and a 3.8% jobless rate.”

“President Donald Trump hits a new high on his economic approval ratings in a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, reaching 56% of Americans saying he’s doing a good job on the economy,” Grace Sparks reports for CNN. “At the same time, Trump’s favorability rating has hit its highest point since the 100-day mark of his presidency.”

 

 

“Doing her best to raise the level of civility in Washington, Nancy Pelosi called William Barr a liar on Thursday . . . The real reason for Mrs. Pelosi’s slander is what else Mr. Barr said the last time he was before Congress. He said that spying on a political campaign was a ‘big deal,’ that he thought the FBI did spy on the Trump campaign in 2016, and that he intends to find out what happened and why,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

 

 

“What is perhaps most notable about this episode is that Robert Mueller — or, perhaps, as Barr hinted in his Wednesday testimony, people around him — were concerned about the media coverage and political discussion around his report. Particularly troubling was that it wasn’t damning enough of the president. This is not a prosecutorial concern, but a political one unworthy of people who were invested with incredible investigative power in the name of objectivity,” the National Review editorial board writes. “Bill Barr’s critics are demonstrating their lack of judgment and seriousness, not his.”

 

 

“Only about 15 percent of America’s students have a reasonable understanding of American history. And the numbers look just as bleak in other core subjects,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos writes in the New York Post. “There are many who propose we spend even more on doing the same thing over and over again. Albert Einstein called this ‘insanity.’ . . . Students deserve something different. And actually doing something different demands courage to confront a powerful and pernicious establishment — one that opposes change in education.”

Top Ten Smaller Cities Millennials Moving to For Lower Housing Cost, Plus Stock Updates

May 2nd, 2019 Comments off

5.2.2019DailyBusinessNewsManufacturedHousingConnectedMarketReportsBloombergMHProNewsLet’s have some fun admitting that while there are real pains to being the contrarian to the manufactured housing industry’s BOR-ing ‘Knoxville-Arlington Amen Corner,’ there is also a liberating quality to it.  We on the Daily Business News on MHProNews don’t have to wonder what the big boys think when we publish a report that is based on evidence that they won’t want their Amen Corner writing about. We don’t ask a sponsor what we can or can’t say. Our views are our own, which is liberating all around.  It’s like a popular talk radio station, where the views and opinions may not represent the sponsors, or even the station management. On another day of red on the big boards, with many manufactured home stocks dipping that should be rising, let’s look at the top ten cities that millennials are reportedly moving to so they can get lower housing prices.

We will, of course, tie it all into manufactured housing!

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

TopTen10SmallerCitiesMIllennialsMovingToForLowerHousingCostPlusMHStockMarketUpdates

Listen carefully to what is said during this video.  Only about 1 out of 10 millennials can buy a house in some cities, in the ones listed, about 1 in 4 can.  The vast majority of these could buy if they were able to place a HUD Code manufactured home on vacant city lots, which has been done in other major metro areas with success.

The Arlington, VA based Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) managed today to get another message out for their fundraising meeting next week.  But even though they had SVP Lesli Gooch, Ph.D., at that MHCC Washington, D.C. meeting we reported on early today that was visited by HUD Secretary Carson, the large MHI association staff apparently did not have time to let the industry know about Secretary Carson’s pro-manufactured housing comments. Why not?

 

ICYMI, see the linked text image box below.

 

HUD Secretary Ben Carson Surprise Appearance at Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee, Exclusive Quotes – Addressing Manufactured Home Industry

 

Only MHProNews brought you that exclusive report, thanks to 3 insider tips. We bumped another story to run that one.

What’s wrong in manufactured housing is that too few are questioning the leadership of the Omaha-Knoxville-Arlington axis.  Warren Buffett’s Omaha based Berkshire Hathaway arguably could grow the manufactured home industry.  Buffett has the media contacts, right?  The Berkshire owned BH Media group could do it, if they wanted to, correct? Plus, given the wonder of Google, Bing, or Yahoo News, the right effort would over time win hundreds of thousands over, and then millions.

But instead, with John Oliver’s video ruling – thanks in part to funding from Buffett via dark money nonprofits – is proof once more that the truth can be stranger than fiction. Given there are billions in opportunities, why are so many big boy MHI members silent on what’s happening?

So as a result, millennials are turning to other cities, and whatever conventional housing they should be buying.  And as a result, investors in several MHI member publicly traded companies who are in on it or aren’t fighting back are arguably robbing investors of far higher rewards.

A few will benefit, long term. But many are being de facto cheated in a purportedly rigged game. Millions of potential housing owners are among them. So too are industry pros, and investors.

 

Top10CitiesWhereMillennialsMoveStayDailyBusinessNewsMHpronews

So these are the headlines from CNBC.

 

 

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) is a fraction of MHI’s size and budget. But they are taking on some of these issues.

 

“Lead, Follow … Or Get Out of The Way”

MHARR Calls on HUD Secretary to End Discriminatory And Exclusionary Zoning of HUD-Regulated Manufactured Homes

 

The National Association of Manufactured Housing Community Owners broke with MHI, because of their failures to perform.

Once the rules of engagement and methods used are better understood, then one can often predict what will follow. This satirical cartoon was done years ago by MHProNews, and much of it has since come to pass. <?I>

Say, what are those plaintiffs shareholders attorneys for Cavco doing for others in MHVille?  Have they looked yet?

SmokingGunEvidenceOfAntiTrustMonopolisticCollusionMoatClaytonHomesKevinClayton21stMortgageTimWilliamsWarrenBuffettMHLivingNewsMHProNews

In a series of direct quotes in context, a document from 21st Mortgage signed by Tim Williams, and video recorded comments by Kevin Clayton, these all line up to demonstrate how independent retailers, communities, and producers – among others – where purportedly harmed by action that could be deemed an antitrust violation. 

That’s our food for thought for industry pros. By the way, if you are an investor only, let me tell you. Our sources tell us that the big boys are on our site day by day.  MHI has an outside attorney who is on our site to check our reports.  We’ve invited the powers that be to refute or respond to our concerns.  Silence.

They have the right to remain silent.

Investors have the right to get vocal.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

FederalReserveChairJeromePowellOneWordSendStocksLowerMHMarketUpdatesMHProNews

We’ll preface the Daily Business News on MHProNews comments and video that follows from CNBC by saying this. Who elected Jerome Powell to preside over the economy?

The answer, of course, is that the Trump Administration nominated Powell, and the Senate confirmed him in February 2018.  But millions of Americans ought to question the outsized role the Federal Reserve plays in the U.S. economy.

To consider a contrarian viewpoint, for some time, one of the lonely voices critical of the Federal Reserve in Washington, D.C. was Senator Rand Paul’s father, Congressman Ron Paul.

Starting at about 2:50 on this video, Dr. Paul speaks briefly about the Fed as “a thief.”  We’ll use that to tease this big topic for another time.

 

 

Think about it.  How free is free enterprise, if one word from an appointed bureaucrat can cost you money? Roughly a century of the federal reserve system is arguably enough of a mixed bag of often problematic results that merits another look, another time.

More Americans need to question the status quo. Why is something the way it is? How does it compare to the vision of the founders?

That said, let’s turn to some pull-quotes from left-of-center CNBC today.

 

Here’s the one word from Jerome Powell that has people raising their eyebrows

That one word? Transitory.”

 

  • Traders have been speculating that recent weaker inflation readings would concern the Federal Reserve so much that it would cut interest rates later this year. Powell knocked that idea, by explaining that the central bank still sees the weakness as the result of “transitory” factors, such as portfolio management services, lower apparel prices and airfares.
  • Stocks were flattish before the Fed statement, and turned negative when Powell began to speak about inflation.
  • “The market was pricing in this rate cut. They want a rate cut and this was basically Powell saying, ‘sorry but we’re not.’ You have gold down, the dollar rallying and Treasurys selling off,” said Peter Boockvar, of Bleakley Advisory Group
  • On Tuesday, President Donald Trump criticized Fed policy, saying it was holding back the U.S. economy. He said the Fed should cut by one percentage point and restart a program of quantitative easing, a policy tool used during the financial crisis.

Let’s be clear.  It is far too early for these polls to be a true indicator of who may win the election in 2020.  There are way too many possible surprises that can take place.

That said, polls like this are useful as a sense of what investors – in the case of the Barron’s poll – are thinking.  It produced a result similar to a one-on-one poll between Joe Biden (D) vs. POTUS Donald J. Trump published early this morning, but there is far more detail tonight — and more topics covered.

Let’s dive into the result of their polling.

Per Barron’s,In the spring survey, as with last fall’s, we asked participants to share their views on political and policy issues. Based on poll results, America’s money managers are pretty pleased with President Donald Trump. A plurality of managers responding to our spring poll gave the president a B grade for his performance since November’s midterm elections. A strong majority of 63% graded him C or better.”

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

CruiseShipRetiringAtSeaWillitEatInto55PlusCommunityOrAssistedLivingPlusManufacturedHomeMarketUpdates

 

In describing this emerging discussion of full-time cruise ship living, MarketWatch this today said, “There you’d be, floating around the tropics, Antarctica or Europe, peering out at glaciers, palm-lined beaches or the Hong Kong skyline from your private stateroom. Daily maid service. Gourmet dining. Nightly entertainment. Your own concierge. And all for about what it costs to live on land, whether it’s in your own home or a senior living community.”

 

More than a myth

Meryl Press of Cunard Cruise Line recalls a “one-off” resident passenger, Bea Mueller, who lived aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 for years until the ship was taken out of service in 2008, but who has since died. Legendary traveler Lee Wachtstetter at age 86 was living on the Crystal Serenity, having shared a passion for cruising with her late husband. So popular with other passengers and crew was she that she became known in cruising circles as “Mama Lee.”

The day before my husband died of cancer in 1997, he told me, ‘Don’t stop cruising.’ So here I am today living a stress-free, fairy-tale life,” Wachtstetter told USA Today in 2015.”

The crew members bend over backwards to keep me happy. Some are almost like family now. If they don’t have what I want, they get it, even if they have to buy it off the ship or make it to my specific needs.”

Wachtstetter has spent more than seven years on the Crystal Serenity, and previously lived on a Holland America ship. She estimated that she spent $164,000 yearly for her shipboard accommodations.”

The first video is from CNBC, and doesn’t focus on higher cost Disney cruises. They make the case that it is less expensive to live on a cruise ship than to do assisted living at many facilities.

 

 

The second video is about Disney cruises, and Rob Plays – who took the cruise – does the math. On Disney, it’s pretty costly. But it is insightful.

 

 

That said, the fact that there are a burgeoning number of such reports and videos online ought to make manufactured home community professionals and investors wonder, what is the potential for this kind of concierge lifestyle on-land in a land-lease community?  That would obviously be significantly less costly, with more room for those involved.

In essence, it is targeting a significant audience. DCBI says that “Only 4.5 percent (about 1.5 million) of older adults live in nursing homes and 2 percent (1 million) in assisted living facilities.”

Senior Living says, “Approximately 47 million seniors live in the United States.”

Investopedia, Pew Research and others cite the figure of 10,000 seniors retiring daily, and the former expects that trend to continue for at least 10 years.

It is one more reason to think about the enormous opportunities that manufactured housing professionals and investors have.  This is just one target audience of many.  But the golden agers number some 3.65 million people retiring every year, for the next 10-years? Many will want to downsize. Many own a conventional house outright, or have enough equity to be able to pay cash or make a big down payment for a manufactured home.

With less than 2 people per senior household, this one possible target market is a good reason why manufactured housing selling under 100,000 new HUD Code homes units a year for about a decade is an embarrassment.

There are some 100,000,000 Americans in rental housing. Divide that by about 2.58 people per household, even with millions of them not able to qualify, tens of millions of those renters are paying more for a rental than they would to own a manufactured home on an improved site.

So, this micro-trend of cruise ship living is just another reasons for broad-minded, goal-oriented manufactured housing professionals to think why their results should be soaring, not snoring.

Left-of-center CNBC had these bullets about the GDP report for the first quarter of 2019.

  • First-quarter gross domestic product expanded by 3.2%, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said in its initial read of the economy for that period.
  • Economists polled by Dow Jones expected the U.S. economy increased by 2.5% in the first quarter.
  • Gross domestic product for the first quarter was the best start to a year since 2015.

 

 

The White House Press Room’s “West Wing Reads” had the following shares today with the Daily Business News on MHProNews.

US Economy Grows by 3.2% in the First Quarter, Topping Expectations

“The U.S. economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the first quarter and posted its best growth to start a year in four years,” Fred Imbert reports for CNBC.

“First-quarter gross domestic product expanded by 3.2%, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said Friday in its initial read of the economy for that period. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected growth of 2.5%.”

“President Donald Trump is taking a principled stand against congressional overreach, refusing to allow Democrats to use Congress as a taxpayer-funded opposition research firm for 2020,” Jenna Ellis writes in USA Today. “Special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his two-year investigation, finding that there was no Russia ‘collusion’ and bringing no obstruction of justice charge. But now, House Democrats have shifted their own version of the discredited partisan witch hunt into full gear.”

 

“One of the biggest failures of the Mueller probe concerns not what was in the final report, but what was not. Close readers will search in vain for any analysis of the central document in this affair: the infamous ‘dossier.’ It’s a stunning omission,” Kimberly Strassel writes in The Wall Street Journal. “Thanks to the special counsel we know Republicans weren’t playing footsie with Russians. But thanks to BuzzFeed, we know that Democrats were. America deserves to know how far that interaction extended.”

 

“Veterans of the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu have slammed [Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)], for accusing them of killing ‘thousands’ of Somalis and ignoring the fact they were engaged in a United Nations mission designed to protect civilians from a murderous warlord following a devastating famine and civil war,” Russ Read reports for the Washington Examiner. “Danny McKnight, who was the Ranger colonel who commanded U.S. troops, and Kyle Lamb, who was a Delta Force operator, said they were in Somalia in part to protect the Majerteen, Omar’s tribe, from the ruthless warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid.” 19 U.S. troops were killed in service of that mission.

2019DailyBusinessNewsStocksMarketsDataReportsMHProNewsAsk a manufactured home retailer, and many will tell you that they are not happy about rising oil – and fuel – prices.  While every price hike tends to bug a seller, fuel can seemingly bite faster than some shifts.  Tonight’s focus will be on the end of Iran oil sanction waivers, which is leading to higher oil prices.

OilPrices6MonthHighAfterIranSanctionExemptionsEndPlusManufacturedHomeStocksMHProNews

 

OPIS Global Head of Energy Analysis Tom Kloza talks to Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on the outlook for oil prices.

 

As noted in the teaser at top, rising fuel prices produces very few smiles in MHVille. 

That said, those with a long-term view might bite their lip, grin and bear it if – if – the following details are kept in mind.

Iran’s regime has long fomented unrest in the Middle East, per several federal and international sources. The U.S. missed a chance in 2009, during the Obama Administration, to take steps like this one during Iran’s so-called Green Revolution. Without any noteworthy support or nod from America, the protests by the people of Iran against their regime faded.

That in turn has resulted in more U.S. military deaths and injuries, from IEDs, and other Iranian supplied attacks on our nation’s soldiers serving in the Middle East.  It doesn’t just hurt the U.S., but to our regional allies. There are obvious human as well as military costs to that tragic cycle.

YouMHProNewsSeemToHaveConceptualIQThatIsMoreImportantThanSpellingAbilityQuote

Many of these quotes are from MHI insiders.

Fast-forward to the present.

Iranian unrest has grown since President Donald J. Trump has taken office.  Popular protests have resulted in periodic clashes between government and protesters. While no one is predicting that the government there will be toppled anytime soon, it won’t happen at all if there are no pressures on the regime.

That said, there’s a clear double-standard. The U.S. understandably protests China or Russian spies and other activities in the U.S., but our nation’s espionage agencies are also engaged in similar efforts in lands around the world.

The world is what it is.  It makes little sense to hide reality from “We, the People” when spy services around the world already know what the score is.  While we won’t fisk some of the details in the video below, it does note the influence that Iran has been deadly for Americans and others in the region for years.

 

Straight talk to citizens is useful.  If pressure on the Iranian regime causes it to topple, that could arguably be good for the Iranian people, and it could be good for the United States and our allies in the Middle East.

As this writer is someone who was born in Tehran, with internal insights from Iran, we bring a perspective to this topic that few in manufactured housing could.

Short term pain could be longer term gain. Many of the Iranian people want to see regime change. See related reports, further below.
