Democratic Lawmakers Join GOP Ask for U.S. Oil, Energy Boost, Sliding Manufactured Home Equities Soar on UAE Announcement – Why Russia-Ukraine-USA Oil-Fuel Price Spike Was Avoidable; MHVille Markets


Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Jon Tester (D-MT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) in distinct statements joined numbers of Republican lawmakers and other leaders in calling on the Biden Administration to boost domestic crude oil production. Those individual statements via left-leaning CNN and MSNBC will be shown further below. Meanwhile, on 3.9.2022 as word that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said they would favor producing more oil drove crude oil prices down, virtually all of the manufactured housing connected tracked equities rose. More on that connection shortly in this MHProNews “Intelligence for your MHLife” © fact-packed report and analysis.

“Global oil prices fell Wednesday by the most in nearly two years after OPEC member the United Arab Emirates said it supported pumping more oil into a market roiled by supply disruptions due to sanctions on Russia after it invaded Ukraine,” reported right-leaning Newsmax.

“Brent crude futures settled down $16.84, or 13.2%, at $111.14 a barrel, their biggest one-day decline since April 21, 2020. U.S. crude futures ended down $15.44, or 12.5%, at $108.70, their biggest daily decline since November.

“We favor production increases and will be encouraging OPEC to consider higher production levels,” Amb. Yousuf Al Otaiba said in a statement tweeted by the UAE Embassy in Washington,” per Newsmax. “In this moment of crisis we need more supply,” U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm told attendees at an industry event in Houston. “Right now we need oil and gas production to rise to meet current demand.” “They (UAE) can probably bring about 800,000 barrels to the market very quickly, even immediately,” said Bob Yawger, director of energy futures at Mizuho.

As noted above, on 3.9.2022 as word that the UAE said they would favor producing more crude oil drove crude oil prices down, virtually all of the manufactured housing connected tracked equities rose. Possible takeaways?

Among them is that the manufactured housing industry, along with other sectors of the U.S. economy, are connected to and to a significant degree dependent on moderate and affordable energy prices.

Wild swings up in oil prices were entirely predictable based on known factors detailed in an exclusive op-ed published on 3.9.2022 on the Tampa Free Press. That deep dive into behind the scenes and in your face facts and evidence is found via the linked report below.



On 3.7.2022 as reactions to the Russian-Ukrainian War drove oil prices higher, virtually all of the tracked manufactured housing connected equities dropped.

While this was hardly unique, it illustrates several things.

Among the possible takeaways?

Manufactured housing, along with much of the U.S. economy, is highly energy dependent. Specifically, oil and fuel dependent.

Where was the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) in advocating for policies in Washington, D.C. that undermines independent businesses plus the interests of tens of millions of affordable housing consumers?

Information without sufficient context can be of fleeting or no value. This mainstream news from just days ago video mimics the headlines on so many news channels, publications, and websites. But it can all change rapidly, based upon factors lurking in the background.

Democratic Lawmakers Joining GOP Ask for U.S. Oil, Energy Production

Per CNN are the next two items.

Tester: ‘We Shouldn’t Be Advancing’ Iran, Venezuela, We Can Create Energy Jobs Here

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase energy imports from Iran and Venezuela by stating that the United States shouldn’t be helping out countries that don’t share America’s values and that there is an opportunity to boost American energy production and create jobs in America.

Tester said, “Well, we shouldn’t be advancing other countries that don’t share our values. So, I think that the opportunity here is to do it domestically, create jobs here, deal with it domestically, and also see if we can help Europe out, too.”

Manchin on Boosting Iranian, Venezuelan Energy: ‘Go Back’ to Domestic Production Policies ‘We’ve Had Before’

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase energy imports from Iran and Venezuela by calling for a return to prior energy production policies to boost domestic energy production.

CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju asked, “So, should the administration ease restrictions on production?”

Manchin responded, “Go back to the policies that we’ve had before.”

After referencing leases in the Gulf of Mexico and production on lands controlled by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), He added, “All of this has to go back into production. That’s all we’re asking for. And if we’re asking the rest of the world to step up, let’s show that we’re going to step up and any oil that’s needed to our allies around the world, we produce it cleaner than anybody.”

———– MSNBC ———-

Menendez: We Don’t Need Venezuela’s Oil, Biden Said Maduro Was a Security Threat Five Days Ago

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase oil imports from Venezuela by stating that there is no need to go to the Maduro regime in Venezuela that President Biden declared a national security threat five days ago for more oil when there are other nations the U.S. can get oil from and domestic production that is already licensed.

Menendez doubled down on his statement referring to Maduro as a “cancer” and arguing that “we should not breathe new life into his reign of torture and murder.”

He continued, “Look, I understand the economic consequences that the president is trying to avoid for the American people. I share that concern. But there [are] places like Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, as well as domestic production that has already been licensed, that should be able to [offset] the consequences of the loss of Russian oil. You don’t have to go to a dictator that, ultimately, has created enormous consequences for his people, that kills people, that imprisons them, and for which President Biden extended the decree that declared Maduro and his regime a national security threat.”

These statements from left-leaning mainstream media sources were not cited in the Tampa Free Press expose, but they nevertheless underscore the logic found in the “Vlad The Impaler’ – Ukraine, USA, EU, NATO, Oil, Green Energy, Oligarchs, George Soros, Paltering, Affordable Housing 2022 – Costly Facts You Have And Haven’t Been Told” report and analysis.

Indeed, whatever happens in the next few days arguably won’t harm any of the factual and evidence based insights found in that linked TampaFP op-ed report. Why? Because authentic and objective media should seek insights from a range of sources that inform readers, which that op-ed diligently provided. 

As this CNBC video from 2018 illustrates, these issues were entirely predictable. The points then President Donald J. Trump raised foreshadowed by years what has unfolded in terms of energy and European geo-politics with respect to Russia, Ukraine and NATO.



Similarly, this April 10, 2019 video from the Associated Press (AP) illustrates President Trump’s push for U.S. energy independence. When certain Democratic lawmakers, without necessarily mentioning Trump’s name, say there needs to be a return to previous policies or domestic oil production, it is a back-handed acknowledgement to the 45th President Trump’s pragmatism. One should keep in mind that before becoming a Republican, Trump was a Democrat and for a time supported a third-party. In this video, Trump touted an executive order that did the opposite of what Biden’s “day one” and more recent executive order did. The Trump policies made the U.S. wealthier and more geo-politically independent because it made the U.S. less dependent on foreign oil supplies.



Editorially speaking, such policies could be done by any public official that is not tethered to special interests. This is less a pro-Trump ‘rah rah’ than it is an evidence-based analysis that what is occurring since he was ousted from the White House which demonstrates time and again the prudence of pragmatic policies that benefit the U.S. public at large. The lessons of those policies could be implemented by any politician of any political party, if they were motivated to do so.


Additional Information, more MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

Swinging back to manufactured housing, there are any number of commodities or other factors which influence the production and operations of manufactured home producers, sellers, communities, installers, transporters, vendors, financial services, and other professionals. If the Manufactured Housing Institute, which claims to represent “all segments” of manufactured housing were doing its job, it would be publicly lobbying the Biden White House on such issues. MHI should have done so weeks ago. But instead, it is busy promoting its newest hire, its next meeting, and so on. The TMHA, perhaps unintentionally, stepped on MHI’s messaging as was illustrated by a report earlier this week.

Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA), Texas RE Research Center Make Surprising Admissions About Manufactured Housing Industry Risks – Facts & Analysis – plus MHVille Market Updates

MHI has been exposed time and again as taking steps that benefit the few at risk or harm to the many. Those with deeper pockets can naturally weather short or longer market storms that are caused by policy decisions that may be problematic.  The purpose of a good trade group is to make sure that ALL of their members are playing on a level playing field and that their business interests are being protected when policies are made and then executed. Former MHI chairman Nathan Smith admitted that MHI had failed to be pro-active and was too often reactive. He then pledged to reverse that trend. How is that pledge worked out in practice? Isn’t Smith still on key MHI board and policy forming positions?

Part of a video recorded interview with MHProNews with Nathan Smith, produced before the scandals involving his company became known. In hindsight, his comments may mean more than when they were first said.

It isn’t just crude oil, labor, lumber, etc. The Masthead report below on looming tax policies is another example that industry independents must grasp.


MHI must be called to account publicly. They could do so live, in front of an audience at an event such as Biloxi or Orlando. Or they could do so virtually. The longer they duck, the more flawed, feckless, or con-game style behavior they apparently exude with their false hubris.  The message is simple. MHI should do their job properly, not in a way that benefits a few insiders while harming or putting others at risk. Otherwise, MHI should be supplanted by a new post-production trade group that will work with MHARR, which has proven their reliability for their members throughout their history. See more linked here, here, and below. That report is as relevant today as it was when it was first published.


Manufactured housing thrives or dies to a large extent based upon public policies. That’s a key takeaway from this oil, energy and fuel cost issue. Smith said the right thing, the industry should be pro-active and not reactive. But in fact, the industry’s largest trade group is at times working against the interests of the industry’s independents and consumers. A key job of media is to shine a light on the powerful who are abusing or failing in their use of authority or influence. Why is it that others who claim to be ‘trade media’ in manufactured housing continue to brownnose MHI when the emissions there are so routinely harmful or distasteful?

There are ethical and unethical ways of earning money.


There are people who say something but don’t follow through. For those objectively paying attention to the details, it should be clear that President Trump has worked steadily – often in the face of stiff opposition – toward fulfilling campaign promises he made that would bring jobs and wealth back to America. It was working, until the pandemic hit. Post-pandemic, the efforts to restart the economy are also working.
