‘Ditch Your Car, Pickup or SUV’ say Jet-Set Limo-Leftist Billionaires-Corporate-Govt Leaders-World Economic Forum-But What Will Employees-Transporters Do? USA-MHVille Impacts–News-Analysis


On a periodic basis, social media posts and news stories have emerged for years about concerns about World Economic Forum (WEF) agenda items or plans which call for a drastic reduction in privately owned cars, pickup trucks, or SUVs. While some make the case that can be done in cities or numbers of suburbs, what about transportation in smaller towns and rural areas? According to left-leaning Bing’s artificial intelligence (AI) powered Copilot search/‘chat’ tool: “The World Economic Forum (WEF) encourages cities to contain the growth of private car use and aims to reduce the number of vehicles from a potential 2.1 billion to 0.5 billion by 20501While the WEF advocates for communal sharing of cars to lessen global demands for precious metals and fossil fuels, it has not directly called for ending private car ownership2Instead, the focus is on promoting car-sharing and sustainable practices to address resource scarcity23.” Are you ready for “communal sharing of cars?” A page on the World Economic Forum (WEF) website under the heading of “agenda” has this headline: “Goodbye car ownership, hello clean air: welcome to the future of transport.” In a right-leaning Fox Business article posted here quoted the WEF saying: “This transition from fossil fuels to renewables will need large supplies of critical metals such as cobalt, lithium, nickel, to name a few.” Fox said: “The international lobbying organization [i.e.: the WEF] based in Switzerland has proposed three solutions for lowering the costs of critical metals used in everything from cellphones and electric vehicles to wind turbines and efficient lighting.” Laptops and cell phones are also on the list of items the WEF says need to be reduced. As this exclusive report and analysis will reflect, the WEF has addressed our manufactured home industry a few times and in less than favorable ways. But with respect to vehicles, transportation, and the move to so-called green energy to reduce ‘greenhouse gas emissions’ and CO2: “Shortages of these critical minerals could raise the costs of clean energy technologies.” The WEF page that Fox Business report is based upon is found at this link here.

This news-analysis and fact check will explore several items directly quoting the WEF and others linked to that organization.


State Senator Josh Becker is a Democrat representing a Bay Area district 13, per Ballotpedia.


This will include insights from firms like Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway, and remarks by Kevin Clayton and Clayton Homes.

Their statements and the money deployed by firms and nonprofits in their orbit support of an agenda which own a stake or outright interest in firms operating in manufactured housing.

Like the agenda to push people out of privately owned cars, pickup, SUVs or not, these are issues that obviously impact everyone working in manufactured housing. In fact, as noted above, some direct quotes about “mobile homes” (i.e.: manufactured homes) from the WEF are also found in this report, which will be explored.


Part I

In no particular order of importance are the following items from the WEF, or sources as shown.

1) That WEF page has the following bullets and supplied the graphic below from a MacArthur Foundation.

  • Shifting from fossil fuels to renewables requires huge amounts of critical metals.
  • Recycling alone won’t be enough to sustain the amount of materials needed
  • We need to increase sharing, reuse and a preference for longevity to reduce demand.

2) The caption placed by the WEF on their website under the illustration and those three bullets said the following: “On the circular economy system diagram by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, metals fall on the right-hand side of the diagram. This diagram shows a prioritization of approaches. The levers in the inner circles such as “maintain” and “remanufacturing” should be prioritized over those further outside, such as recycling. Source: Ellen McArthur Foundation.”




3) What could possibly go wrong? The Biden-Harris Administration has been a supporter of the WEF and their agenda from the start. Their post-COVID19 Build Back Better plan is a phrase used by the WEF. The WEF are the same organization that publicly pushed for “you’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happier.” These are statements and remarks straight from the WEF that have apparently been adopted by the Biden-Harris and Democrats in several of their programs, so they cannot honestly be called “conspiracy theories.   Rather, to borrow Al Gore’s infamous phrase, these are inconvenient truths that everyone in MHVille and the U.S. needs to consider before voting or supporting this over that candidate. In the collage below, Joe Biden’s image is on the right side near the top. The collage was from the popular financial news and views site Zero Hedge.


The Great Reset in Action, ‘stakeholder capitalism’ in action. The Davos World Economic Forum agenda in action. First uploaded on MHProNews on August 21, 2022. 
This image was first uploaded by MHProNews on March 4, 2022. Since then, Biden-Harris era inflation has pushed the price of conventional housing and financing rates out of reach for most working and middle-class Americans. As MHProNews also reported that year, high ranking Democratic Majority Whip James “Jim” Clyburn (SC-D) told left-leaning MSNBC that Democrats knew their economic agenda would drive inflation. These are facts, not conspiracy theories. Inflation and unaffordable housing are two of the top issues in America, per various public opinion polls. “In the business world, the rear-view mirror is always clearer than the windshield.” – Warren Buffett. That begs a key question. Why don’t more people LOOK at the rearview mirror so they can learn more about the patterns that influence what’s caused us to get to this troubled place in time and as a warning for what else may lie ahead?

4) In an undated post on the WEF website under the ominous title: “Road Freight Zero” it says the following. “Convening CEO Champions of First-Movers across the value chain, Road Freight Zero is curated as a multi-stakeholder coalition of the willing and able, designed to advance the deployment of zero emission fleets and infrastructure by 2030.”


5) Note that they use the term ‘fragmented’ in describing the trucking market. That ‘fragmented’ phrase is the same terminology Flagship Communities and several others involved at the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) have used to describe various aspects of the manufactured housing industry that they and others have targeted for consolidation. “Given the fragmented market, asset lifecycles and massive infrastructure adaptation needed, urgent action is required now, to ensure the transition pathways may accelerate,” said that post by the WEF.


6) From another WEF post published, they said, in collaboration with Business Insider it said this. The article is entitled: “These are the jobs that are disappearing fastest in the US

QuoteMarksLeftSide8. Manufactured building and mobile-home installers

They move or install mobile homes or prefabricated buildings.

Median annual pay: $30,050

Number of people who held this job in the US in 2014: 4,000

Predicted number of people who will hold this job in 2024: 2,800

Projected decline: 30%”

On 5.20.2024, a MHProNews search of the WEF website found zero articles that use the term “manufactured home.” But there were 3 articles that used the term “mobile home,” and the above quote is one of those three.


7) From another article on the WEF website, one of the three that mention “mobile homes,” are these words.

“Anyone living in an emergency shelter, prisoners and long-term hospital patients, mobile home and shanty town dwellers and those forced to move in with family and friends should all be considered homeless, according to the OECD.”1

Bing’s Copilot explained that: “The OECD stands for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. It is an international organization that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people worldwide. The OECD provides research, data, and recommendations on various topics, including homelessness and housing issues.”


8) So, if someone is living in a “mobile home,” according to the OECD and the WEF, they “should all be considered homeless.” Ouch. Where is the pushback against that from the Manufactured Housing Institute? MHProNews asked Copilot.

Is there any reference you can find by the Manufactured Housing Institute or an Institute linked firm to remarks made by the WEF or the OECD saying that residents of “mobile homes” “should all be considered homeless”?

BingCopilotAI-Screen1.3.2024MHProNewsI apologize, but I couldn’t find any specific references from the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) or an affiliated firm regarding the WEF or OECD’s statement that residents of “mobile homes” should be considered homeless. However, it’s essential to note that the definition of homelessness can vary across different contexts and organizations. …”


9) The third mention, per the WEF’s site search tool, of “mobile homes” on this date is in a 92-page document on: “Rethinking Financial Innovation Reducing Negative Outcomes
While Retaining The Benefits.” Like the WEF claim: “Committed to Improving the State of the World,” it sounds noble. But questions must be asked to hold these power brokers to account. For instance. Committed to improving the state of the world for whom? For everybody? Or just for the governing and controlling plutocrats and oligarchs that want to lobby, exercise influence, and ‘rule’ through organizations like the WEF? Hold those thoughts as the quote regarding “mobile homes” [SIC] by the WEF is provided below.

Under the subheading “1.2 CDOs” is this statement by the WEF in an appendix found on page 76.

QuoteMarksLeftSideIn the 1990s, CDO managers generally purchased corporate and emerging markets bonds and bank loans. However, after the liquidity crisis in the financial markets triggered by the Russian devaluation of August 1998, returns on asset-backed securities rose and CDO managers saw an opportunity to innovate by creating “multi-sector CDOs” backed by new collateral types, such as mobile home loans, aircraft leases and even mutual fund fees.”


10) To put that quoted statement on mobile homes into its context is the following from that same document and section.

“1 Historical Background to Selected Financial Innovations”

Jumping ahead to section relating to what the WEF errantly called “mobile homes.”

QuoteMarksLeftSide1.2 CDOs

The bonds underlying a CDO can vary in kind from corporate bonds to securitized loans and leases, including MBS, and the favoured collateral changed over time.164 In the 1990s, CDO managers generally purchased corporate and emerging markets bonds and bank loans. However, after the liquidity crisis in the financial markets triggered by the Russian devaluation of August 1998, returns on asset-backed securities rose and CDO managers saw an opportunity to innovate by creating “multi-sector CDOs” backed by new collateral types, such as mobile home loans, aircraft leases and even mutual fund fees.

These securities performed poorly in the period after the dotcom bust and the economic slowdown following the Al Qaeda attack on the World Trade Center in New York in September 2001. The widely accepted explanation was that CDO managers could not become experts in such a wide array of underlying asset classes and industries. CDO managers, in a further innovation, therefore turned to the non-prime mortgage market, where they believed – wrongly, as it turned out – that the risk drivers were better understood. By 2004, MBS accounted for more than half the collateral in CDOs, making CDO managers key purchasers of lower rated (e.g., BBB) MBS tranches. In the same way that investor demand for MBS had funnelled money to the underlying mortgage market, the success of CDOs helped to further fuel the MBS market.”

In that remark, the WEF did several things. In no particular order of importance,

a) they confirmed key statements made by this writer for MHProNews at a Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) listening session with the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, linked here.  That statement, quoting an industry source, said that the meltdown of the manufactured home financing that began in the late 1990s was a “pimple on an elephant’s ass” compared to what occurred to the balance of the housing-finance industry.

b) Focusing briefly on this CDO topic: “These securities performed poorly in the period after the dotcom bust and the economic slowdown” – which named “mobile home loans” specifically.  But they then admitted that asset managers turned to “non-prime mortgage market, where they believed – wrongly, as it turned out – that the risk drivers were better understood.” While they phrased that very politely, it was what was often called the “Great Recession” and the biggest financial crisis the U.S. (and world) had seen since the Great Depression. The closest linked footnoted to the “mobile home” and CDO products was this 164 and 165, both of which cited the following.

QuoteMarksLeftSideNational Commission on the Causes of the Financial and Economic Crisis in the United
States. (2011) The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report: Final Report. Available at: http://www.gpo.

That page linked above says the following: “In the wake of the most significant financial crisis since the Great Depression, the President signed into law on May 20, 2009, the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009, creating the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.” That would have been the Obama-Biden Administration.

c) Note that the WEF, in each reference made to “mobile homes,” puts our homes product in a poor light.

d) This report began with the headline about the plan to dramatically reduce the use of privately owned cars, pickups, SUVs and other vehicles.  This is all in support of a climate agenda that while popular on the left and with numbers of left-leaning billionaires and corporate interests is hardly ‘settled science.’ MHProNews has explored that subject numerous times, including the one linked below. So, an agenda is being pressed that is in dispute, that seems to be beneficial to the interests of billionaires, corporate leaders, and their allies. But that agenda has been used to press programs that have fueled inflation, made housing and transportation increasingly unaffordable for the majority of Americans. There are those who argue (see below) that increased temperatures and more CO2 are increasing crop yields and thus make feeding more people easier and less costly.


Dr. William Happer Explains Science on CO2 and Climate – Happer, Other Experts on Motivation, Agenda, Psychology and Sociology Behind Agenda Driven Big Lies – Why it Matters to USA-World-MHVille


e) While there are exceptions, that agenda has been vigorously opposed by many Republicans and has been promoted by the Biden-Harris regime and Democrats. Who says? Leading Democratic Representative James “Jim” Clyburn (SC-D).




With that backdrop, let’s pivot to a prior report on the WEF website that goes into greater detail on their thinking on privately owned cars, pickup trucks, SUVs or other vehicles.

11) Per the WEF: “Goodbye car ownership, hello clean air: welcome to the future of transport”

“Imagine instead a world where fleets of autonomous vehicles that are electric and shared (FAVES) slash the number of vehicles on the road by as much as 90%.” This is a parallel to the WEF theme previously cited above in #3, “You’ll Own Nothing, and You’ll be Happy.” What is apparent is that the elites will be allowed to have vehicles, but the vast majority of the population will not. So, while some say that the impact of this plan may be a cut of over 70 percent of privately owned transportation, the WEF’s own website says that it may be as much as a 90 percent reduction in vehicles that is planned. These are hardly conspiracy theories, when they are openly promoting these notions as part of the goals to recreate the world in their desired image.


12) The nature of propaganda is to sell a narrative. That has always been the nature of propaganda, which routinely means repeating a story time and again until it is believed by many. Telling that narrative or story is obviously going to be done in a way that seems appealing, even if (or especially if) the outcome is less than guaranteed and the outcome may not at all align with the claims being made. So, for instance. From that same WEF page: “Perhaps best of all, imagine wider, less congested streets with more room for pedestrians and bicycles.” Cleaner air is promised, along with “much less global warming, shorter commutes, and even “crowd-funded” fleets of vehicles whose routing and pricing software is tuned to minimize energy use or provide low-cost transportation to underserved regions.” That all sounds marvelous, doesn’t it?

  • But the reality is that anyone who has ever tried to ride a bus to work knows, it routinely takes longer to get from point a to point b using public transportation.
  • So, commutes aren’t likely to be shorter, they are likely to become longer.
  • While it may be true that money is ‘saved,’ if someone can’t afford to own a house, and is renting ‘everything’ (one would hope foot isn’t included in ‘everything’ being rented), how will it make life better? Recall what the young housing agent said via his viral TikTok video, posted below. At the current pace, people will be paying $8500 monthly to rent.




13) Like having your own ride? Like the freedom that personal transportation can provide you? Do you want to be able to decide if you can own a gas or electric vehicle? Or perhaps you live in a rural or lower population area where the WEF’s agenda simply will not work? Then it is in your best interest to oppose the agenda being pressed by the WEF, which includes the direct and indirect support of some powerful individuals who influence manufactured housing and other industries too. What should be obvious is that since Biden-Harris (D) took office and the Democrats have controlled the federal bureaucracy, the cost of living has skyrocketed. Affording cars, insurance, housing, gas, food, utilities – almost everything is more expensive.  So much so, that many believe that the American Dream is over.




14) That’s not just conservative, centrist, or moderates saying so. It isn’t just pro-Trump, or pro-Republican thinking remarks that hammer at Biden-Harris and Democratic policies. Even left-leaning FactCheck.org has steadily documented similar facts.


“The income needed to comfortably afford a home is up 80% since 2020, while median income has risen 23% in that time,” the report states. That equates to $47,000 more than four years ago.

“Home shoppers today need to make more than $106,000 to comfortably afford a home,” according to the report. “That is 80% more than in January 2020.” – per the Center Square on 3.14.2024 based on Zillow Research.

15) As interest rates and other costs rise, and because wages are not keeping up, this is harming the “kitchen table” economy of most Americans. Consider the implications of Democrat and Biden-Harris era appointee Jonathan Kanter at the Department of Justice (DOJ) antitrust division.  So, while facts may have partisan implications, facts and evidence are not per se partisan. Note to new readers, MHProNews management is politically independent, not a member of either major party.




16) Small businesses are feeling the pinch too. Some headlines and pull quotes illustrate.

QuoteMarksLeftSideWhy small businesses hate Bidenomics

Apr 25, 2024 — “Smaller businesses are being crowded out by complex regulations and direct competition from the $35 trillion national debt,” Malpass concludes.

Why Small Businesses Hate Bidenomics, by Stephen Moore

Per the Boston Herald: May 1, 2024 — Small company CEOs are even more fearful of the future today than during the COVID-19 pandemic, when most businesses were shuttered.”

U.S. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (MO-8-R) said this in an April 2024 press release.

“Small businesses and workers who lose their job are paying the price for Democrats’ failed leadership.”

“The clear winner of ‘Bidenomics’ continues to be big government. The latest job report shows that nearly a quarter of new jobs were created by government, while Mom-and-Pop stores had to cut 100,000 jobs in the last six months. Small manufacturers alone had to cut over 10,000 jobs just last month and the latest report shows manufacturing job growth at close to zero. What further proof is needed that President Biden’s ‘manufacturing boom’ is a bust, given his record of high prices and high interest rates. Small businesses and workers who lose their job are paying the price for Democrats’ failed leadership.

“Small businesses and families need tax relief. The Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act will make it easier for small businesses to expand, create jobs, and compete against China. Working parents will have more money in their pocket to deal with Bidenflation. The Senate should quickly consider and pass this pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-America bill.”


17) That same press release by House Ways and Means Chairman Smith stated the following.


Survey: Mom-and-Pop Businesses Are Cutting Jobs

According to the Intuit QuickBooks Small Business Index, small businesses are cutting jobs because of skyrocketing costs:

  • Small businesses with between 1-9 employees have cut jobs each month for the last six months since October, totaling over 100,000 jobs.
  • In March, small businesses with between 1-9 employees cut 12,900 jobs.
  • Small manufacturers cut 10,800 jobs just in March.

Key Background

  • Bureaucrats Over Blue-Collar Workers: In March, nearly a quarter (23 percent) of new jobs were created by government agencies, while manufacturing employment showed “little or no change.”
  • Prices have increased 18.6 percent since President Biden took office.
  • Real wages and benefits have fallen 4.2 percent since President Biden took office.
  • Inflation outpaced wages for 26 straight months of Biden’s presidency.
  • Mortgage rates reached a 23 year high of 7.8 percent in October. The average monthly mortgage payment has increased by $959 and is 85 percent higher than when President Biden took office in January 2021.
  • Credit card interest rates are at the highest level in nearly three decades, while consumer credit debt has reached an all-time high of just over $1 trillion and the number of Americans struggling to pay credit card bills has increased sharply.”

Note that some of those figures may be low, as they rely upon inflation calculations that some economists say understate the real rate of inflation.


18) Biden’s response to these problems? He has repeatedly, in recent days, falsely claimed that inflation was at 9 percent when he took office and that he has brought inflation down. Even left-leaning outlets like CNN have said that is simply not true. The fact-check by the left-leaning Washington Post on that statement by Biden, in an article headlined: “Biden’s false claim that inflation was 9 percent” said that merits: “Four Pinocchios.”  Four Pinocchios has been WaPo’s ‘biggest lie” rating for years. But perhaps they will need to create a 5 Pinocchios rating if team Biden-Harris keeps this up? Per the Philadelphia Inquirer three days ago: 

“President Joe Biden erroneously said twice in one week that inflation was at 9% when he took office in 2021. In reality, inflation stood at 1.4% when Biden assumed the presidency in January of 2021. Biden made the false statements in interviews with CNN on May 8, and with Yahoo Finance on Wednesday.”

Rather than admit the failures of his policies, he has attempted to blame Trump. Par for the course? Unfortunately for Biden, elements of the Democratic base have been steadily drifting toward Trump. Others have stated their support for lifelong Democrat turned independent Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.).  Kennedy and his wealthy run mate are creating concerns for Biden-Harris and Democrats on the left, because they are gaining ballot access in states that may tip the election away from Biden.


Part II – Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

1) In a recent report, MHProNews informed readers of the history – and track record – of those who have pressed for experts running the government and finance systems in the U.S. That movement included the efforts of President Woodrow Wilson, and scores of others since.




2) The “Ellen MacArthur Foundation” is credited with that image above in Part I #2 used by the WEF. Per their website: “Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. We develop and promote the idea of a circular economy.” Influence Watch said the nonprofit group is British based and is not as transparent as many U.S. based groups. 

According to Influence Watch on the Ellen MacArthur Foundation is the following.


The foundation also created the Circular Economy 100 (CE100), a network of businesses including Apple, Avery Dennison, the Coca-Cola Company, HP, McDonald’s, Microsoft, Target Corporation, and Teleplan, committed to its environmentalist ideology. 3

Apple and Coca-Cola have large stakes from Berkshire-Hathaway. Meaning, Buffett-led Berkshire and Bill Gates ally co-founder of Microsoft linked brands are supporting the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.


3) Also from Influence Watch: “The Ellen MacArthur Foundation receives funding from multiple sources including private foundations, and its global partners include organizations such as Google, Renault, Philips, and BlackRock. 6” As MHProNews previously reported, BlackRock has a large stake in several Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) linked companies, including Berkshire. Also, as MHProNews has reported, several red or Republican led states have been sounding the alarm about BlackRock and private equity firms like that one which are using their economic clout to mold U.S. economic and political policies.


Edit Post “BlackRock Sounds Alarm-Financial Cracks Emerge from Interest Rate Hikes, CEO Larry Fink ‘Polycrisis’-Signals De-Emphasis on ESG ‘Not Environmental Police’ Govs PushBack;plus MHVille Stocks Update” ‹ Manufactured and Mo

Per Influence Watch:


BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm, partnered with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and created the BGF Circular Economy Fund in 2019. The fund, which was provided $20,000,000 in initial seed money by BlackRock, will invest in companies that set their own circular economy targets and provide solutions to accelerate the implementation of a circular economy. 23 The global head of thematic and sector investing at BlackRock had been working on creating a fund focused on recycling and sustainable batteries, but the focus changed to the circular economy on the theory that it presents more opportunity to invest on trends like climate change, resource scarcity, and urbanization. 24

Google, another global partner, co-released a report with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation which focused on ways artificial intelligence can accelerate a circular economy. The report suggests artificial intelligence can exploit “real-time and historical data from products and users.” 25


4) Note that the contradictions in organizational or politicians’ own policies and claims are often exposed in the longer-form journalistic articles on MHProNews?  When BlackRock ‘sounded the alarm’ on interest rates, that is arguably posturing. They have their own economists.  They had to know that the policies they were pushing were going to fuel inflation. BlackRock and other larger corporate organizations were part of the ‘coalition’ that pushed for Biden over Trump in 2020. Note that the reports linked below reflect that before and after the 2020 and 2022 elections, MHProNews correctly forecasted the problematic economic, financial, political and other outcomes caused by the policies pressed by certain corporate giants.  If MHProNews could do so, surely BlackRock, Buffett, and Biden-Harris (among others) could too?






5) Note that in the above and the new report linked below, MHProNews has consistently and for years pointed out the ties between nonprofits, including so-called “dark money” groups, and the financial power and influence of Warren Buffett and his ultra-wealthy fellow oligarchs and plutocrats. Just a basic understanding of economics will often expose the bold and positive sounding claims being made are in the end hot air and illusions that turned into nightmares for millions of souls in the U.S. and beyond. Poverty increased with the WEF-supported and Biden-Harris embraced Build Back Better agenda in the U.S. and elsewhere.




6) That should lead curious people to wonder. Why would Buffett, Larry Fink, Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerburg, George and Alex Soros, and others in that leftist-corporate orbit support policies that undermine the economy? The answer is troubling. Economic turmoil often results in massive transfers of wealth into the very hands that pushed for the policies that caused the economic unrest in the first place. Just follow the evidence and the money. Rephrased, it isn’t just that a crisis is an opportunity that should not be wasted, it apparently is a case where crises are deliberately fostered so that a crisis will follow, which will hurt millions. In the wake of those often-predictable events, private equity is able to step in with large piles of cash and/or the credit needed to scoop up ‘bargains.’






By keeping the market underperforming, it de facto causes all business in it to be undervalued. Just luck, or is it part of the Buffett ‘Castle and Moat’ strategic plan to create a slowly developing monopoly?




7) From Berkshire-owned Clayton Homes ‘social responsibility’ (think ESG) page are the following.

KevinClaytonPhotoWarrenBuffettPhotoBerkshireHathawayClaytonHomesManufacturedHomeProNewsKEVIN CLAYTON, CEO of Clayton Homes:


“At Clayton, we understand the positive impact companies have when they do good and drive change. Through our social responsibility efforts we will help guide the housing industry forward to improve lives and build a better tomorrow for everyone.”

Sounds grand, doesn’t it? From that same page are these others claims.

QuoteMarksLeftSideWe will fulfill our vision by focusing on four key areas:

  • Deliver an Outstanding Team Member Experience

  • Invest in Our Communities

  • Democratize Attainable Homeownership

  • Build a Sustainable Future”
Those buzzwords are in keeping with the WEF and remarks made by BlackRock. Before pressing on, the validity of those claims about their so-called ‘outstanding’ team experience needs to be questioned in the light of what actual Clayton team members have said and done.
That segue about Clayton’s disputed employee experience claims noted, BlackRock has a sizable stake in Berkshire Hathaway and several other prominent MHI member firms.


8) The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) recently reframed their previously expressed concerns about MHI and how they are shifting the terminology used to promote affordable manufactured homes. While accurate, it is also accurate to note that companies and organizations beyond Clayton are MHI are pushing the lingo that Clayton and MHI are steadily adopting. All of those adopted terms are routinely from the narratives supplied by firms that support the WEF and the political left.




The WEF has pages of content pushing against gas powered vehicles. They also have content that promotes self-driving electric trucks. These are despite the fact that Biden-era policies that aim to promote more electric vehicles and drive up the cost of owning a gas- or diesel-powered vehicle have reportedly ‘invested’ 7 billion in adding electric stations and reportedly only 7 such EV charging stations have been installed. More on that topic another time, because if true, that is yet another scam or scandal of epic proportions. Several sources argue that electric-powered trucks are years away from being useful as a substitute for gas-, diesel-, or other fuel-powered trucks.


Showing this image is not meant as an endorsement of the WEF nor of their claims. As this report illustrates, MHProNews is a critic of the WEF.



10) The hypocrisy on the left is nothing short of stunning. The WEF, and those in that orbit, is seemingly increasingly being called out by not only conservatives, but so too are billionaires and corporate interests in the WEF orbit are being called out by voices on the left too.  Note that MHProNews has periodically reported on WEF related issues to inform our readers for some years. As a look at this report and those prior ones would confirm, these reports have stood the test of time for accuracy.






To see this remark in context, the featured report further below. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/dirty-great-reset-secretthe-great-resetabout-money-and-power-plenty-available-for-ruling-class-elites-justin-haskins-heartland-institute-nbc-news-warren-buff/


11) As a shameless but fact-based plug for what makes our platform by far the largest and apparently runaway most popular trade media serving manufactured housing, unlike others in MHVille trade media, MHProNews provides periodic reports that looks at issues involving employees, trucking, installation, and related. We also appear to have more articles on climate and energy issues than others in MHVille too.



12) Summing Up. All industries and most people could be impacted by the plans being pushed year after year by the elites that are behind the WEF.  As surveys and research reported below reflects, there is a ‘Grand Canyon’ sized gap between the so-called and often self-proclaimed ‘elites’ and the rest of the 99 percent.


‘Grand Canyon Sized Gap’ Between the Elites and Most of Us – Research Reveals What the 1 Percent Think of the 99 Percent – Survey Results, Facts, with Population Manipulation MHVille Analysis

a) The plans being advocated and advanced by the elites, when carefully examined, routinely benefit the elites at the expense of the rights and opportunities of the vast majority of the population.

b) While there are some on the right that appear to buy into the WEF and globalist agenda, for the most part those who do so are progressives, Democrats, and leftists.



c) As an industry news, tips, and views pros can use platform, we are certainly in a position to observe that Trump was right on several issues and Biden-Harris were wrong.  But even as young people, Blacks and other minorities are steadily drifting into the Trump camp, there are those who may be ‘never Biden,’ but may also be ‘never Trump.’ For those, there are Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and some libertarians and leftists. Kennedy appears to be routinely polling higher at this time than any third-party candidate since Ross Perot did in the 1990s.





d) Trump went to the WEF to tell them to their faces that he was promoting “America First” policies, not globalist ones.
