“…Biden has made it clear, through an unrelenting fusillade of lies, that he does not consider himself to be the least bit accountable to the American people, does not think ordinary rules and norms apply to his administration, and does not think he owes anyone an honest word about anything that happens on his watch.” So said Political Editor John Daniel Davidson, and the full context of what sparked those remarks are found in the first report by Bob Unruh below. In the second report, Unruh spotlights how White House ‘circle back’ spokesperson Jen Psaki responded to questions related with her “absurd” response to questioning about claims that hiking taxes on businesses was ultimately going to be paid by consumers, not businesses.

Report: Biden ‘has decided to govern by lies’
‘He does not consider himself to be the least bit accountable to the American people’
By Bob Unruh
Published September 29, 2021 at 1:55pm
President Biden’s ability to – and apparent decision to – lie directly to the American public was put on display this week when his top military officials directly contradicted what he told a reporter just days ago.
Fox News reported Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and head of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie confirmed they recommended the U.S. should maintain a presence of at least 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.
The problem is that Biden told former Bill Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos on ABC something different.
Stephanopoulos said, regarding Biden’s decision to pull all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan, leaving behind a collapsing government to be overcome by the terrorist Taliban, Americans behind enemy lines, and more than $80 billion in American war machinery in the hands of the terrorists, “So no one told — your military advisors did not tell you, ‘No, we should just keep 2,500 troops. It’s been a stable situation for the last several years. We can do that. We can continue to do that’?”
Biden confirmed, “No. No one said that to me that I can recall.”
Now Political Editor John Daniel Davidson at is warning those lies share a lot of information with Americans.
“What we can conclude from this pattern of deception is simply that Biden does not feel the need to give straight answers about any decision he makes or policy he enacts,” he wrote online. “He will not be honest about what his advisers tell him or about what he intends to do on any given issue.”
He continued, “Above all, Biden has made it clear, through an unrelenting fusillade of lies, that he does not consider himself to be the least bit accountable to the American people, does not think ordinary rules and norms apply to his administration, and does not think he owes anyone an honest word about anything that happens on his watch.
“He has decided, that is, to govern by lies. The least we can do, at this point, is be honest about that.”
He pointed out that “hardly a day passes anymore” that Biden or members of his administration “do not stand before the American people and lie through their teeth.”
He pointed to the statements about troops in Afghanistan.
“The generals’ testimony flatly contradicts Biden’s claim in an August 19 interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that none of his military advisors told him to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, or ever warned him that withdrawing those troops would trigger the collapse of the Afghan military and government,” he said.
The obvious fact is either Biden was lying, or “he simply cannot remember what his top military advisers told him about one of the most important decisions of his presidency,” Davidson wrote.
He acknowledged Biden is “slipping in his old age,” and in fact, Biden is well-known for making verbal gaffes and blunders, forgetting what he wanted to say and simply letting a sentence trail off unfinished and worse.
“But the most straightforward explanation here is that he was deliberately lying to Stephanopoulos about what his generals advised,” Davidson wrote.
He also raised the issue of Biden’s statements “that mounted Border Patrol agents in Del Rio, Texas, were ‘running over’ Haitians migrants and ‘strapping’ or whipping them with their reins, a false claim that was repeated over and over by the press and administration officials after photos of a horse patrol confronting illegal immigrants appeared on social media.”
He explained that the concept was revealed as fiction even before Biden threatened Border Patrol agents “will pay.”
“The photographer who took the viral photos later confirmed he never saw the mounted Border Patrol agents strike anyone, and subsequent video footage of the incident should have settled the matter definitively. Instead of slandering and threatening the agents, the president should have come out and apologized to them profusely,” Davidson said.
Biden on the lie that border patrol were using whips on illegal immigrants at the border:

He warned, “Biden appears to be incapable of not lying all the time, even when his abject dishonesty is an insult to the intelligence of every American. It is simply pervasive.”
He cited other lies including “idiotic” one from Biden that his $3.5 trillion climate change and welfare bill would actually cost zero dollars.

Psaki calls most basic economic principle ‘absurd’
‘Unfair’ that companies would pass along higher costs to customers
By Bob Unruh
Published September 29, 2021 at 7:26pm
White House press secretary Jen Psaki has concluded that the economics of companies who pass along higher costs to their customers is just wrong.
Actually, the word she used is “absurd.”
Jen Psaki: It’s “unfair and absurd” that companies would increase costs for consumers in response to us taxing them more. 😳 pic.twitter.com/rHilrYdj4j

She was responding this week to a question about a new plan to raise taxes on Americans.
It was President Biden who has promised repeatedly that his tax increases won’t hit anyone making less than $400,000 a year, although multiple analysts have debunked that claim.
The reporter asked, “I want to ask you about what Republicans are pointing to in the analysis from the Joint Committee on Taxation. They say, according to — if I’ve read the chart correctly, more than 16 percent of taxpayers would see their taxes increase under the bill that’s approved by the House Ways and Means Committee. Will the President sign that bill if — as if — it is coming out of that committee? Or will he insist on the changes so that he will maintain his commitment that taxes won’t go up on people making $400,000 a year?”
Psaki said she had not seen the report, but gave her opinion anyway.
It was on corporate economics.
“Obviously, the president’s commitment remains not raising taxes for anyone making less than $400,000 a year. There are some — and I’m not sure if this is the case in this report — who argue that, in the past, companies have passed on these costs to consumers. I’m not sure if that’s the argument being made in this report. We feel that that’s unfair and absurd, and the American people would not stand for that.”
A blog post responding to her comments said, “What in the world is she thinking? … Yes, Psaki thinks that if the government takes more money from companies through higher taxes that it would be ‘unfair and absurd’ for those companies to charge more for their products and goods to make up the costs.”
Actually, taxes on corporations ultimately are paid by their customers, who provide the revenue stream for them to stay in business.
The Free Beacon noted, “A number of economic studies have found that consumers bear approximately 31 percent of the cost of corporate tax increases through higher prices on consumer products.”
Columnist David Harsanyi wrote, about her comments, “The way the Biden administration talks about economics isn’t only transparently dishonest, it’s embarrassingly juvenile. Economic realities aren’t predicated on ‘fairness.’ Perhaps in the progressive Shangri-La where a $3.5 trillion bill is ‘free’ and throwing trillions into the economy helps lower inflation one has the luxury of pretending that taxes do not pass through to consumers.
“Companies are in the business of making a profit — and the bigger the profit the better. Otherwise, they do not exist,” he said.
“This is how the economy grows. This is how jobs and technologies are created. These are the realities, unfair or not. Democrats have adopted a — sorry, I’m not sure how else to put it — fascistic notion that businesses exist to participate in the ‘common good’ as dictated by the state (when they run it). If this had been the case over the past century, many of the great efficiencies and technological comforts you enjoy would probably not exist.”
He charged that the rhetoric “is an outgrowth of the extraordinarily stupid idea that ‘free’ college and ‘free’ health care exist. These are the same people who tell you there will be no serious trade-offs when greening the economy and artificially spiking energy prices. Good and services do not spring forth from the ether without costs simply because voters are big fans of windmills and community college.”
This third and final report for today from WND Newscenter cites a survey from left-of-center Axios. It is worth noting that such surveys may skew higher numbers of Democrats in their sampling.
Not even half of Americans believe Biden to be accurate about COVID
Poll shows 53% ‘don’t trust him very much or not at all’
Published September 28, 2021 at 7:43pm
By Ailan Evans
Daily Caller News Foundation
Americans’ trust in President Joe Biden to offer accurate information on COVID-19 is at its lowest point ever, according to a new poll.
Just 45% of Americans say they trust Biden to give them correct information on the coronavirus, while 53% say they don’t trust him very much or not at all, according to the results of the Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index, conducted between Sept. 24-27. Trust in Biden has dropped substantially since the president took office, with 58% saying they trusted Biden in an Axios/Ipsos poll conducted between Jan. 22-25.
Similarly, only 49% of Americans say they trust the federal government to provide accurate COVID-19 information, down from 54% two weeks ago.
“Delta and other issues have really undermined the public’s perception,” Cliff Young, president of Ipsos public affairs, told Axios, saying that the lack of a clear resolution to the pandemic and COVID-19 restrictions have contributed to a decline in trust.
Predictably, there is a substantial partisan divide in trust, with 81% of Democrats, 42% of independents and 11% of Republicans saying they trust the president to provide accurate information on COVID-19. Biden’s decline among independents has been the largest, dropping 17 percentage points since he took office.
Fewer Americans are also seeing COVID-19 as threatening as they did earlier in the pandemic, with only 13% saying in-person gatherings with their families pose a threat to their health, and 12% saying eating in a restaurant is a risky activity. These numbers are each down five percentage points from two weeks ago.
The poll sampled 1,105 adults between Sept. 24–27 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
This story originally was published by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
MHProNews notes. The reports above continue to reflect from left (Axios) and right (WND) sources how the Biden White House is distrusted and why. It is an ongoing string of lies, as Unruh reported John Daniel Davidson said, citing evidence. But it isn’t only Biden, there are RINOs, other DINOs and politicos in the pockets of the Civic Alliance. Keep in mind, in Washington, the two rules of thumb are follow the money trail to see who is benefiting from a policy. Thee second rule of thumb is there are no coincidences in Washington, D.C. When a pattern emerges, that’s not coincidence.
With that backdrop, let’s pivot to how these policies are impacting Americans and our profession. In no particular order of importance, the following.
- Manufactured housing are by design homes that could be afford by those on lower incomes.
- As the price-points are surging due to inflation, supply chain, labor, and other Biden-DINO-induced policies, that could over time undermine new manufactured home sales.
- Keep in mind that JCN and Carol Roth are among those who say that there is a war against small businesses underway.
- The Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) response to these issues has been either silence, praise, support, and an occasional muted critique to policies that are harming not helping manufactured homes and the cause for affordable housing in the U.S.
With that backdrop, the next segment is per left-of-center MSN – think Microsoft founder and Warren Buffett ally Bill Gates – reporting on 9.30.2021 by finance platform Zacks, they probed the question, “When Will the Housing Market Normalize?”
There are several useful facts and potential pull-quotes. But with the missing comma in the original, this quote merits multiple stars. Following this report will be additional MHProNews information, analysis and commentary in brief.
>>> “So inventories need to increase much more before the situation normalizes.”
Manufactured housing could be surging, but instead hit a wall in July. With August data just days away, how will this shake out? Note one of the headlines from left-of-center CNN below is this:
>>> “So long, pandemic pricing. Rents are skyrocketing”
With that backdrop, per MSN, the following from Zacks.
When Will the Housing Market Normalize?
The housing crunch is still a reality. This is seen in the still-low inventories and the still-soaring prices. And it’s despite the fact that buyers are holding off due to a combination of factors, including market conditions, affordability issues, summer distractions, the fall schooling season, as well as the need to start holiday shopping earlier this year.
What the Numbers Say
Zillow data shows that after increasing at an accelerated rate for each month since January, price increases started moderating in August to $303,288 (including across 43 of the 50 largest major metros). A year-over-year deceleration isn’t expected until Jan 2022.
The price moderation is of course related to inventories, which climbed for the fourth straight month in August, while remaining 22.7% lower than last year. So it’s easy to see why the firm sees home values continuing to increase (by 4.7% between August and November this year and 11.7% between Aug 2021 and Aug 2022).
So inventories need to increase much more before the situation normalizes.
As far as new homes are concerned, the Census Bureau and HUD say that privately-owned housing starts in August were up 3.9% (±11.3%) from July and up 17.4% (±12.1%) from August 2020. But housing completions slowed 4.5% (±11.1%) from July although they were up 9.4% (±10.3%) from August 2020.
Also, single-family starts slowed while completions increased. New home sales were 1.5% (±15.1 percent) above July, but 24.3% (±19.1%) below August 2020. Inventory at August-end was 378,000, representing 6.1 months of supply at the current average sales price of $443,200 (median $390,900).
According to the National Association of Realtors, existing home sales dropped 2.0% from July and 1.5% from last year with the median price of $356,700 increasing 14.9% year over year. Days on the market was level with July at 17 but down from 22 in Aug 2020.
Single-family home sales dropped 1.9% with the median existing single-family home price of $363,800 increasing 15.6% from August 2020. Inventories dropped 1.5% from July and 13.4% from last year, representing 2.6 months of current sales.
Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said, “Although there was a decline in home purchases, potential buyers are out and about searching, but much more measured about their financial limits, and simply waiting for more inventory.”
Factors Driving Inventory Supply
One factor that has driven sales since the pandemic hit is the low mortgage rate, which for the 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate loan was 2.84% in August and sub-3% through 2021. It was 3.11% in 2020. If things continue per plan, the mortgage rate will increase next year, making it that tiny bit harder for buyers and leading to some inventory increase.
The second factor that could increase inventories is the mortgage forbearance program, which is set to lapse today. Some of these home owners may now opt to sell these properties, rather than start making payments again.
Zillow is looking for existing home sales growth of 5.1% this year, making it the strongest year for existing home sales since 2006. It now expects 5.93 million units to sell this year, up from 5.89 million estimated last month, so it’s an accelerating trend. This acceleration could be on account of existing home owners who had been holding out because of pandemic concerns deciding not to wait any longer to grab the sky-high prices.
Third, HUD stats seem to indicate that new home starts and completions are increasing substantially from last year, while permits are increasing faster than starts. So new projects are in the pipeline. Despite the land, labor and other constraints, the trend supports inventory growth.
Finally, price increases and limited inventories are keeping most buyers out of the market. Since buyers are researching but waiting, inventories are bound to build up.
The August unemployment rate of 5.2%, although above pre-pandemic levels of 3.5% (in Feb 2020), is down substantially from the pandemic high of over 14% in May 2020. So the ability to buy continues to improve. This along with positive demographics and increased staying at home is a highly conducive situation for a strong housing market. Given the above estimates, it appears that the situation will normalize in another six to nine months.
Additional Information, more MHProNews Commentary and Analysis in Brief
Zacks clearly missed this one: “Despite the land, labor and other constraints, the trend supports inventory growth.” There is no evidence that sufficient inventory is coming online. Their own report contradicts that claim.
That said, the reports linked demonstrate why manufactured housing could be soaring but instead is snoring.
There is a growing case that MHI is allowing, or in some cases, fostering conditions that result in consolidation. Several MHI member brands have said publicly that consolidation is their focus.
The facts, evidence, and logic do not lie, even if some in Arlington, VA – where MHI happens to be headquartered, and other MHI member bases seem to be into paltering, deception, and misdirection.
