Courthouse News on University of Chicago – Institute of Politics Survey Reveals Numbers of Americans Ready to ‘Take Up Arms’ Against ‘Corrupt’ Government; plus Manufactured Housing Stock Update


Some of the cross-currents in American politics, according to the University of Chicago Institute of Politics survey reported by Courthouse News, seem soberingly in keeping with the revolutionary spirit captured in the Declaration of Independence being celebrated on Monday, July 4, 2022. The report that follows is courtesy of the WND NewsCenter to MHProNews. It will be followed by related information and then our Daily Business News manufactured housing connected equities updates.

Prior to diving into the reports based on fresh research and on mainstream media insights that follow, consider these words from the Declaration of Independence. Then read the summary of the University of Chicago Institute of Politics research below. According to the federal, these are part of the famous words that fueled the Revolutionary War against England that resulted in their colonies breaking free and becoming the United States of America (USA). Note that the actual poll makes this allusion to the Declaration.

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. …”

With that backdrop perhaps the statements made below provided by the WND NewsCenter to MHProNews will be a bit more interesting.


Poll warns feds half of nation believes government ‘corrupt’

And large bloc open to idea it may ‘soon be necessary to take up arms’ against feds

By Bob Unruh
Published July 1, 2022 at 12:05pm

WNDnewscenterLogoQuoteWas Jan. 6, 2021, an “insurrection?”

The Capitol riot has been portrayed that way by Democrats and their allies in the legacy media ever since that day because it appears they want to use it to lash out angrily at those upset with the federal government’s actions, particularly regarding the 2020 election.

If they can harass and bully, even jail, dissenters, so much the better, it appears.

But now there’s a poll out that warns that more than half of the nation believes the government is “corrupt.”

And a large bloc is open to the concept it may “soon be necessary to take up arms” against the feds.

The poll is from the University of Chicago – Institute of Politics, and was described by Courthouse News.

The report said the poll “found that over a quarter of a deeply alienated American public, particularly those who identify as Republican, believe that it may ‘soon be necessary to take up arms’ against the government.”

The poll was a collaboration of Neil Newhouse, a Republican pollster, and Joel Benenson, a Democrat pollster, the report said.

They interviewed 1,000 registered voters.

“A slight majority of those, 56%, said they believed the government was corrupt and ‘rigged against everyday people like me,’ with self-identified Republicans polling substantially higher on that question than Democrats,” the report said.

“In total, 28% of voters agreed with the statement ‘it may be necessary at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government.’ That skewed heavily toward Republicans, with one in three Republicans and 45% of self-identified ‘strong Republicans’ agreeing with the statement. The GOP doesn’t hold a monopoly on the sentiment, though – one in five Democrats agreed, as did 35% of self-identified independent voters,” the report said.

About one-third of those in that category admitted to pollsters they had guns in their homes, the poll said.

“These really are stunning results, that really go to the depth of the nation’s partisan divide and the extent to which Americans really don’t trust the media to provide unbiased information,” Newhouse told CN. “The bottom line is, it’s worse out there than we thought.”

There long has been a divide in the nation between leftist and conservative thought, but it erupted openly on the stage during the presidency of Donald Trump, when Democrats conspired to create the false claim his campaign colluded with Russia, then used made-up evidence to get the government’s law enforcement agencies to investigate – and charge – some of Trump’s aides.

It was the subject of a special counsel investigation that clouded Trump’s term for years. What we now know is that it was created and orchestrated by twice-failed Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, aided by Democrats in power during the Barack Obama reign, up to and including those in the White House.

The legacy and social media industries proved themselves handmaidens of the Democrat Party during the Trump term, with reporters openly badgering the president, earning his label of them as the enemy.

Democrats tried twice – and failed both times – to impeach and remove Trump from office – once after he already had finished his term. And the current partisan committee assembled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was behind those two failed removal attempts, is viewed by many as a third attempt at impeaching Trump, this time with the goal, admitted by some Democrats, of stopping Trump from running for office in 2024.

The poll shows the depth of the divide now facing Americans, and the impact of that situation even on individuals.

“The data really shows that it has personal consequences,” Newhouse told CN. “People have lost friends. They’ve avoided discussions about politics. They’ve quit social media, they’ve stopped buying a brand because of their partisan views…. They have taken action because of their political experiences.”

Stunningly, 8% responded that they have sought therapy over the chasm. The poll confirmed 19% had lost a relationship with a friend or relative, and 25% claimed it had made them physically ill.

CN reported Newhouse explained both sides view the other with similar perspectives. Both, he said, are “ticked off at the other side, they don’t trust them, they think they’re pushing misinformation and that they’re bullies about what they believe.”

Political science professor David Schultz of Hamline University told CN the poll confirms that “we live in two different partisan worlds, with each side having its own facts, its own bubbles, its own visions of the world.”

Schultz turned grim about ways to reduce political division, the report said.

“A lot of people need to die,” he said. “Part of what’s going on here is that we have an enormous generational divide.”

The report said 2020 was the first time in 20 years that Baby Boomers were not the majority of voters.

The Washington Times said the poll “reveals not only the growing divides we have witnessed in recent years but strong sentiments that the majority of media outlets contribute to these divisions by intentionally misleading their audiences to promote a political point of view.”

The poll also showed 30% say religion is important when they make friends, and 20% consider ethnicity, but a majority 52% consider the new person’s “views on politics.”

Fifty-six percent trust elections are conducted fairly and accurately counted, but 39% don’t. Nearly half “feel more and more like a stranger in my own country.” Another majority, 54%, are dissatisfied with what kids are being taught in schools, and 47% consider politics so “divisive” they avoid such discussions.

Startlingly, 32% would not be comfortable with someone from the other party babysitting their kids, 28% would not want someone in the other party doing their taxes and 27% would not want them watching a home while on vacation.

Thirty-nine percent said they do not want the other party teaching their kids in schools, and 46% would doubt the other party’s count of local precinct votes.##


In a report that supports the concerns that general disdain for current policies – even among Democrats – which is also courtesy of the WND NewsCenter to MHProNews, is the following.



Nearly 80% of DEMOCRATS believe America on wrong track

‘I’m a Democrat so I had to vote Democrat, but that’s going to change’

By WND News Services
Published June 30, 2022 at 3:35pm

WNDnewscenterLogoQuoteNearly 80% of Democrats believe the United States is headed in the wrong direction under the leadership of Democratic President Joe Biden.

Overall, 85% share that belief, according to a poll commissioned by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

 Among Democrats, 67% called the economic conditions poor amid record-high gasoline and food prices. The AP interviewed a loyal Democratic voter in Las Vegas who believes Biden is “doing the best he can.”

However, said Chuck McClain, 74, “I can’t say he’s doing a good job.”

Only 14% say the country is going in the right direction, down from 21% in May and 29% in April.

In a news conference Thursday at the end of the NATO summit in Madrid, a reporter referenced the new AP poll as she asked Biden how he can say – as he did at the previous NATO summit – that “America is back” as the leader of the free world.

Biden insisted there are no world leaders who believe America is going backwards, declaring the nation “is better positioned to lead the world than we have ever been.”

“But one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of United States in overruling not only Roe v. Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy,” he said.

The AP interviewed another voter who said she voted for Biden in 2020 but won’t support a Democratic ticket in 2024.

“I’m a Democrat so I had to vote Democrat, but that’s going to change,” said Dorothy Vaudo, 66, of Martin County, North Carolina.

In an interview with the AP earlier this month, Biden said the decline in his popularity was due to the rise in gas prices, which he blamed on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

After the report earlier this month that inflation in May hit an annual rate of 8.6%, Biden invoked his “Putin’s Price Hike” mantra in a statement.

“Putin’s Price Hike hit hard in May here and around the world: high gas prices at the pump, energy, and food prices accounted for around half of the monthly price increases,” Biden tweeted.

Shortly after the tweet was posted, however, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell denied under oath in a Senate hearing that the war is the primary driver of inflation, arguing it was high long before Putin’s invasion.

The AP said that Biden’s one bright spot in the poll is the 53% of Americans who approve of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Biden’s chief pandemic policy has been to push the COVID-19 vaccines, including imposing mandates on both federal and private workers that have cost many their jobs and hampered major industries. Meanwhile, health officials have acknowledged that the vaccines do not prevent infection and transmission of the virus, as they had promised. And studies, confirmed by real world data, indicate the vaccines are compromising immune systems, making people more vulnerable to infection and severe illness from COVID-19 along with the risk of potentially deadly side effects. ##


Additional Information, More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

Students of history, which includes the likes of one Warren Buffett, realize that political forces and public opinion matters. In this current era which has been called by what former Google executive called the Creepy Line, what once was smeared as ‘conspiracy theories’ are now being proven true, even by Biden Administration officials. One difference between garden variety ‘conspiracy theories’ and serious concerns is actual evidence. See these quotes from left-leaning CNN captured in the tweet below.

How this this will play out God knows and time will tell. But the related reports below reflect more evidence why this shift away from support for left-leaning Democratic driven policies is occurring and why a red wave is building. That red wave might head off the threat of violence against government the University of Chicago Institute of Politics survey suggested is building in the U.S.A.
