“This is the moment Trump’s critics have been dreaming of for years. But something isn’t right here.” So reads the subheading of a story on left-leaning Vox entitled: “The Felon Frontrunner.” Biden backers hypocritically, or ironically, are saying the Trump conviction proves ‘that no one is above the law.’ But that remark ignores the evidence that the Biden family has been linked to millions of dollars of payoffs from China, Russia, and Ukraine – among other nations – in a foreign influence peddling scheme that was being documented for an impeachment case that may never be brought by House Republicans. But it isn’t just foreign influence peddling that the Biden’s have seemingly been involved in. It has been recently revealed that Joe’s son Hunter Biden has been getting funding from a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) linked professional. New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who brought the charges against Donald J. Trump, was supported by Democratic billionaire megadonor George Soros. Soros, among other billionaire and corporate giants who hate Trump and the “MAGA movement” and support Democrats and Biden in what would be a blatant criminally cronyism scheme if not for the woes caused by the left-right media divide in the U.S. On X.com, Shaun Maguire posted an article from a “tweet” that proclaimed: “I just donated $300k to Trump. I’m prepared to lose friends. Here’s why.” Maguire said he went from supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016 (voting against Trump), to disillusioned in 2020, to now supporting Trump with a $300,000 donation. Maguire explains his reasons why. Maguire states he is a partner in partner Sequoia Capital, has a physics PhD, and is into “quantum space crypto security (it’s a niche but high impact field).” Maguire isn’t alone. The GOP’s “WinRed” website went down for about 30 minutes yesterday, apparently due to the rush of donations from people in the wake of the deposed Trump’s conviction on all 34 counts charged by Bragg in what has been described by some as a hopelessly prejudiced Biden-supporting Judge Juan Merchan. The rule of law, per some sources, has been as much on trial as Trump has been in Merchan’s court. Why that matters to every American in or beyond MHVille will be explored following an array of insights that set the facts and examples of reports and reactions regarding this literally historic case. Because like it or not, Vox’s has a point. A ‘convicted felon’ is the ‘frontrunner’ in the 2024 race for the White House. “This is the moment Trump’s critics have been dreaming of for years. But something isn’t right here,” said anti-Trump Vox writer Andrew Prokop.



Vox’s Prokop who apparently authored that memorable first three words of the headline quoted above “The felon frontrunner…” is described as their: “senior politics correspondent” who previously wrote for the left-leaning New Yorker. Per Prokop article on 5.30.2024 is the following.

Donald Trump is now a convicted felon.

Donald Trump is also still the favorite to be the next president of the United States.

Since as far back as at least 2017, Democrats have dreamed about the moment when a jury would find Trump guilty of crimes. And on Thursday, a Manhattan jury found Donald Trump guilty on 34 felony charges of falsifying business records in the first degree.

But now that that moment has arrived, the vibes are all wrong.”

Left-leaning CNBC Shark Tank star and investor Kevin O’Leary has been saying for weeks that the prosecution of Trump in New York was going to harm the business climate in that state. O’Leary has been weighing in on housing and economic issues too.

O’Leary’s argument is that who among conservatives or even centrists would want to risk placing money in that blue or Democratic state, if what has been happening to Trump there could possibly happen to them too?

That there are business, political, economic, social, and other consequences to the ‘guilty on all counts’ verdict brought by a Manhattan jury against Trump is why this article with analysis will provide readers with various insights and reports following this historic event – the conviction of a former president, even if that conviction may well be overturned on appeal. To ignore this topic on MHProNews and pretend as if nothing unique just occurred would be journalistic malfeasance. To illustrate, let’s return to what apparently anti-Trump Prokop wrote for Vox yesterday.

What’s next? Sentencing. Juan Merchan, the New York justice overseeing the case, plans to sentence Trump on July 11. Trump was convicted of 34 counts of a nonviolent, Class E felony, and he has no prior convictions, which means he could receive anywhere from no prison time to up to four years incarceration.

What about the other criminal cases? Trump is still facing charges in three other cases, all of which have been delayed. It’s unlikely that any will reach a verdict before the election.

The apparently pro-Biden, pro-Democratic bias of Vox’s Prokop is reflected what follows. This is an apparent example of posturing, projecting, and paltering in action.

Trump’s conviction on charges of falsifying business records comes as he has held on to a stubborn lead in both national and swing state polls for months, and as Democrats have grown increasingly anxious about Biden’s reelection chances.

Some might hope the conviction and ensuing sentence will be a turning point for the 2024 campaign — that it will be the moment when the public is jolted into realizing that, actually, they don’t want a felon as president. There’s been at least some basis for that hope in polls showing a significant share of voters saying they would switch from Trump to Biden after a conviction.

But amid a long track record of Trump surviving past scandals, a robust right-wing media ecosystem peddling alternative narratives that Democrats are the corrupt ones, and widespread dissatisfaction with Joe Biden’s presidency, it’s far from clear a conviction would really make such a difference in practice.

What seems to have happened here is that, over the past decade, the idea of having a major political figure in prosecutorial jeopardy has been normalized. First, we got used to Trump being under investigation and then under (quadruple) indictment. Now, Team Trump has successfully warped the rules of politics to the point where even a felony conviction may not matter.”  And those remarks illustrate what former President Barack Hussien Obama (D) aptly said some years ago.


“If you watch Fox News you are living on a different planet than you are if, you, you know, listen to NPR.” – former President Barack H. Obama. While that bears nuance, it is an apt observation. The quote by President Obama is quite correct about political issues, but also with respect to manufactured housing. The source someone reads or views matters. In order to win over more people, the prevailing narrative must be challenged. It must be repeatedly challenged. That challenge to prevailing narratives should be done by considering insights across the left-right divide. 
Vox writer Prokop has an apparently anti-Trump biased, but nevertheless apt point. Precisely because there is a reasonably resilient right-leaning, not just left-leaning, media echo system there is sufficient media support to allow Trump to not only potentially endure this historic – and very troubling outcome for millions – verdict.  It could prove pivotal in the 2024 contest. And years of gathering facts and evidence about media bias from across the left-right divide will prove useful to our readers once more.  Yesterday, shortly after the verdict was announced, MHProNews monitored Washington D.C.’s news-talk WMAL. Among the callers who phoned in was a self-described 70s-something-year-old grandmotherly type woman who said she had never made a campaign donation in her life. That is, until yesterday. The woman announced her in call on WMAL that she was a person of modest means who just made her first campaign donation to Donald J. Trump.
While the AllSides media bias chart has some differences from the one provided by Sharyl Attkisson, they often agree. A close look at Attkisson’s chart reveals that often larger media outlets are in the hands of the political left. Additionally, Google, Bing (Microsoft-MSN), Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube and other big tech platforms are also on the political left. Thus, former Democrat and former award-winning CNN Washington, D.C. correspondent Chris Plante has observed that Democrats and the left have “media dominance.’
The left demonstrably has media dominance. But the right has for years been building their own media ecosystem.
At this time, with big tech, big media, and big business largely on the political left, it should be stunning to some who have not yet recognized what is occurring in the U.S. to see that Bidenomics and the apparent high-tech smear campaign against their political rival Trump has both achieved their goal (getting a Trump conviction), and yet they have failed at improving the lives of the American people in general.  So, the Biden-Harris campaign has had to double down on smearing Trump as a felon (in what has been described as an apparently flawed legal process), double down on January 6 (J6) and claims of “insurrection” vs. a protest gone array (or hijacked), and they are doubling down on pushing abortion rights, even though there were more abortions in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade than there were before. The left is seemingly ascendent at this time. They have the levers of power in Washington, D.C. and in states like New York, California and the left coast, IL, MA, VT and more. But despite the leftist tilt in the U.S., traditionally Democratic supporting Blacks, Hispanics, single women, and youth are drifting towards Trump and the MAGA movement. What was once unthinkable is occurring. So, while Vox’s Prokop is lamenting about the ‘normalization’ of prosecuting a political opponent – something that the left is obviously guilty of doing against Trump. What remains is that the lives of everyday Americans are worse off.  As a WMAL caller just said, Marion Barry (D) was a convicted felon, but he also won re-election as the mayor of Washington, D.C.
When the boil is lanced, it is painful and ugly. But in the wake of lancing the boil, healing can occur.
With a little less than 6 months to November 5, 2024 even Joe Biden’s email machine has admitted that Trump will have to be defeated at the ballot box.  The reports that follow will round out some insights on the trial, what may be grounds for appeal, and other legal maneuvers still to come. That will be followed by a reasonably focused analysis by MHProNews before pivoting to our Daily Business News on MHProNews market report.

Jury convicts Trump in hush money case on all 34 charges

(The Center Square) – A Manhattan jury on Thursday convicted former President Donald Trump on all counts in his hush money case, a history-making verdict that could reshape the 2024 presidential election.

Trump was convicted of 34 counts of falsifying business records for disguising hush money payments to an adult film actress as legal costs ahead of the 2016 election.

Under New York state law, falsifying business records in the first degree is a Class E felony that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Judge Juan Merchan set sentencing for 10 a.m. July 11, days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, which is scheduled for July 15-18, when Trump is likely to be selected as the party’s nominee for president.

A jail or prison sentence could have implications for the 2024 rematch between Trump and President Joe Biden.

After the verdict was announced, a defiant Trump said voters would decide his guilt or innocence in November.

“This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge that was corrupt,” Trump said. “They wouldn’t give us a venue change. We were at 5% or 6% [support] in this district, in this area. … Everyone knows what happened here. We didn’t do a thing wrong. I’m a very innocent man. It’s OK. I’m fighting for our country. I’m fighting for our Constitution.”

Trump said the case was brought by Biden, his political rival.

“Our whole country is being rigged right now,” Trump said. “This was done by the Biden administration. I think it is just a disgrace. Our country has gone to hell. We are a nation in serious decline. This is a rigged decision right from day one.”

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records related to money paid to keep an adult actress from talking about an alleged affair with Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Bragg has alleged Trump broke New York law when he falsified business records with the intent to commit or conceal another crime.

Prosecutors allege Trump falsified internal records kept by his company, hiding the true nature of payments that involve adult actress Stormy Daniels ($130,000), former Playboy model Karen McDougal ($150,000), and Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen ($420,000). Prosecutors allege the money was logged as legal expenses, not reimbursements.

Both Daniels and Cohen testified during the trial.

Daniels detailed the alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump and testified she “blacked out.” She also said Trump didn’t wear a condom. Defense attorneys asked for a mistrial after that testimony, which they argued was prejudicial. Merchan denied that request for a mistrial.

Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election is at the center of the case.

Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws in 2018 in relation to the payment. Cohen, a convicted perjurer, also pleaded guilty to other crimes, including tax evasion. He was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion, making false statements to a federally insured bank, and campaign finance violations in 2018.

Trump has denied having sex with Daniels in 2006 while he was married to Melania Trump.

Prosecutors called 20 witnesses to the stand during four weeks of testimony before the jury of 12 along with six alternates.

Cohen testified Trump knew about the hush money payment. On cross-examination, Cohen also testified he stole tens of thousands of dollars from Trump while he worked as Trump’s attorney. Cohen said he stole the money that he was supposed to use to pay another company on Trump’s behalf because his annual bonus had been reduced. After falling out with the former president, Cohen vowed to get revenge against Trump.

Trump’s defense team called two witnesses, including one who contradicted Cohen’s testimony. Robert Costello, a defense attorney Michael Cohen spoke to in 2018 while under federal investigation, refuted Cohen’s testimony that Trump knew about the $130,000 hush money payment to adult actress Stormy Daniels.

During the trial, Merchan repeatedly fined Trump for his comments and social media activity outside the courtroom. He ordered Trump to pay a total of $10,000 for violating his gag order.

The gag order remains in place. Trump, the nation’s 45th president, is prohibited from making or directing others to make public statements about the jurors, witnesses, attorneys, court staff, district attorney staff and family members of staff.

Trump, 77, is the first former U.S. president to be charged with a felony. He did not take the stand in his own defense.

In late March, Trump said that he wasn’t worried about a conviction when asked if he thought a conviction could hurt his chances of returning to the White House.

“It could also make me more popular because the people know it’s a scam,” he said. “It’s a Biden trial, there is no trial, there’s a Biden trial.”

Whatever happens, Trump will be protected by the U.S. Secret Service.

Even if convicted and sentenced to jail, Trump could continue his campaign to retake the White House.

“The Constitution does not bar felons from serving as President,” said Richard Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Trump could not pardon himself from any state charges, Hasen said. ##

Verdict has ‘guaranteed’ Trump victory in November, warns conservative ‘hardball’ expert

‘Landslide’ now forecast

A verdict from a jury in far-left Manhattan has opined that President Donald Trump is guilty of 34 counts of misreporting business costs, one of the Democrats’ lawfare cases they have launched against the GOP candidate for president this year.

It’s going to cost them, one expert suggests.

“Today’s verdict from this partisan, corrupt, and rigged trial just guaranteed Trump’s landslide victory on November 5, 2004,” said Mike Davis, of the Article III Project.

His organization was set up after he helped win the Senate confirmation battles of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

It “defends constitutionalist judges, punches back on radical assaults on judicial independence (like court-packing) and opposes judicial and other nominees who are outside of the mainstream,” its own description charges.

“This is a disgraceful, inexcusable verdict. This case should never have been brought to trial in the first place. The D.A. never explained the underlying crime, and his political motivations were clear — he was elected after having promised to ‘get Trump’ during his election campaign. Judge Merchan was equally abysmally biased, issuing absurd jury instructions that make the verdict vulnerable to appeal. The jurors themselves clearly were either biased, given the overwhelming liberal make-up of Manhattan, or did not understand the law. What we’re left with is an unprecedented day in American history: A presumptive presidential nominee convicted for a made-up crime to weaken him in an election campaign. President Biden and the Democrats are smiling today. But Trump will prevail come November, and the tables will turn. The Democrats should be careful what they wish for,” explained Jenny Beth Martin, a honorary chairman of Tea Party Patriots Action.

Kari Lake, candidate for Senate, said, “We just witnessed the most egregious example of election interference and an outright mockery of the rule of law in the 246-year history of our Republic. This entire process right down to the verdict itself has been nothing but a shameful political stunt.

“This is a non-crime that a Soros-backed DA conjured out of thin air and placed in front of a highly conflicted Democrat judge, all in an effort to imprison Joe Biden’s political opponent.

“The star witness in this case was a convicted perjurer, whose testimony before the court was one of the most embarrassing debacles ever seen in a courtroom.”

A statement from Trump’s campaign appeared immediately, explaining, “I was just convicted in a RIGGED political Witch Hunt trial: I DID NOTHING WRONG! They’ve raided my home, arrested me, took my mugshot, AND NOW THEY’VE JUST CONVICTED ME! But with your support at this moment in history, WE WILL WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Leftists jumped immediately to their expected comments.

Quin Hillyer at the Washington Examiner said now Trump must withdraw from the presidential race. He said “it matters not” that Trump could be vindicated on appeal.

Curiously that publication also released a report that while many voters dislike Trump, and even more dislike Joe Biden, that group that dislikes both candidates dislikes Biden MORE.

“According to the latest NPR/Marist poll of the national electorate, Biden earns just 18% of the double hater voter, while Trump wins 34% and Kennedy (RFK Jr.) another 22%,” the report said. ##


Part III – The Center Square to MHProNews


Trump, Biden head for election battle after guilty verdict

(The Center Square) – Former President Donald Trump lost in the courtroom Thursday, but Trump and his rival, President Joe Biden, are looking ahead to the November election.

A jury convicted Trump of 34 counts of falsifying business records to cover up hush money payments to an adult actress before the 2016 election. That conviction makes Trump the first former president to be convicted of a crime and could shape the presidential election.

After the guilty verdict, Trump said he was focused on the election.

“The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5, by the people,” Trump said after leaving the Manhattan courtroom.

The White House didn’t comment on the verdict, but Biden’s campaign said the real battle was in November.

“There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box,” a campaign spokesperson wrote in a statement. “Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president.”

Thursday’s verdict ended Trump’s criminal trial, but the legal process will continue. Judge Juan Merchan scheduled a sentencing hearing for July 11.

Before the hearing, defense attorneys and prosecutors will submit sentencing recommendations to the judge.

Under New York state law, falsifying business records in the first degree is a Class E felony with a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Trump, 77, is a first-time offender, but that doesn’t preclude a jail or prison sentence.

The conviction won’t affect Trump’s ability to campaign for president.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who campaigned for his position on targeting Trump, declined to provide details when asked what sentence prosecutors would recommend. He said Thursday those details would come in future court filings.

Trump is expected to appeal the verdict and could ask that any sentence be postponed during the appeal process. ##


Part IV – from the Daily Signal to MHProNews is the following.


Political World Erupts After Jury Declares Trump Guilty on All 34 Counts

A Manhattan jury found former President Donald Trump guilty Thursday on all 34 charges of falsifying business records to hide “hush money” payments in 2016 to former pornographic movie actress Stormy Daniels.

Upon leaving the courthouse, Trump called the trial a disgrace and said, “This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who is corrupt.” He continued: “The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5 by the people.”

Trump faces up to four years in prison.



Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts issued a statement on the conviction:

This verdict is a travesty to our republic. This was a bogus prosecution engineered by President Biden and his weaponized DOJ that has made the New York justice system look like that of a third-world country where government officials engage in partisan prosecutions against their political opponents.

(Read the rest of Roberts’ statement here.)

The Heritage Foundation launched The Daily Signal in 2014.

The Biden campaign put out a statement saying that “no one is above the law.”



Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said in a statement that the verdict represents a “dark day” in America:

This is a dark day for America. This entire trial has been a sham, and it is nothing more than political persecution. The only reason they prosecuted Donald Trump is because Democrats are terrified that he will win reelection. This disgraceful decision is legally baseless and should be overturned promptly on appeal. Any judge with a modicum of integrity would recognize that this entire trial has been utterly fraudulent.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said in a statement on X that a guilty verdict never would have been reached if Trump wasn’t the person being charged.



MoveOn.org, a liberal advocacy organization, called the verdict a “small degree of justice” in a statement:

Today, a jury concluded that Donald Trump broke the law. This verdict represents a small degree of justice against Trump and his enablers and now millions of MoveOn members will keep up their work to guarantee he loses at the ballot box, too.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., the No. 4 Republican in the House, said the verdict demonstrates that the nation’s legal system under President Joe Biden is “rigged.”



Before beginning to deliberate on a verdict Wednesday, the 12-member jury received unusual instructions in Manhattan Criminal Court from Judge Juan Merchan, as Fox News’ John Roberts reported on X.


The former president spoke to reporters and onlookers Tuesday outside the court before closing arguments in his trial.


Also before those closing arguments, actor and liberal activist Robert De Niro showed up at the courthouse to denounce Trump and his supporters and express his own support for Biden.


Inside the courtroom during closing arguments, Trump’s lawyer argued that the prosecution had failed to come up with any evidence that Trump committed a crime.

“President Trump is innocent,” defense attorney Todd Blanche said. “He did not commit any crimes, and the district attorney has not met their burden of proof, period.”

Blanche was referring to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, an elected Democrat.

Trump’s attorney also pointed to the prosecution’s star witness, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, as an unreliable witness with a history of lying.

“You cannot send someone to prison based on the words of Michael Cohen,” Blanche told the jury.

Merchan, the judge, reprimanded Blanche for this remark, calling it “outrageous” and “highly inappropriate.”

The prosecutor, Joshua Steinglass, rested his case by arguing that Trump’s defense was built on deception.

“The name of the game was concealment and all roads lead to the man who benefited most, the defendant, Donald Trump,” Steinglass said.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated. ##


Part V – While Not Trial Related, the Following from the Daily Signal is Potentially Among Reasons Why Trial Result May Not Help Biden Campaign


Report Details How Much Biden’s Regulations Cost Americans

The Biden administration has set in motion a wave of new regulations that already have cost more than $1 trillion, which equates to thousands of dollars per family, according to a new report from the Job Creators Network.

About $1.6 trillion in costs have been imposed by a total of 923 new regulations finalized under President Joe Biden, with $1.2 trillion of that put in place in just the past few months, according to the business organization.

In just the first two years of the Biden administration, new regulations are estimated to have led to an average of almost $10,000 in added future and present costs to American households, which could jump to $60,000 if the trend continues across a two-term presidency.

“Federal bureaucrats are pushing an unprecedented regulatory agenda that’s crushing American small businesses and families at a time of already high inflation,” Alfredo Ortiz, CEO of the Job Creators Network, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Not only are they exceeding their authority, but the economic strain is creating long-term problems for the folks that are the backbone of our economy.”

The most costly regulation is represented by recently finalized emission standards for light- and medium-duty vehicles, totaling around $870 billion, according to the report. The emission standards introduce increasingly steep requirements over time that vehicles be either hybrid or electric, costing more than traditional cars, as a part of the president’s climate agenda.



The Biden administration has also instituted several regulations on appliances amid the president’s bid to lower household emissions. New standards for washing machines are estimated to cost $200 per unit, gas furnace efficiency standards will cost $494 on average, and a ban on select refrigerants for air conditioners will cost $1,000, according to the report.

Despite the president’s outward support for the manufacturing sector, the industry has suffered from the surge in regulation in recent years. In 2022, regulations cost American manufacturers $350 billion, up 26% from a decade earlier, the equivalent of around $29,000 per employee in compliance efforts, according to the Job Creators Network.

Agencies within the Biden administration have rushed to finalize new regulations ahead of the 2024 presidential election in an effort to entrench them in case Biden doesn’t win a second term. New regulations are subject to a “lookback period” of 60 days before the end of a session of Congress, where they can be more easily repealed due to the Congressional Review Act.

Since the Obama administration in 2009, federal agencies have finalized more than 5,300 regulations, for a total of $2.6 trillion in present and future costs, according to the Job Creators Network. Looking across similar timelines, the Trump administration reduced the cost of regulations by $159.4 billion compared to the Obama administration, which added $309 billion.

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment before publication.

Part VI Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

The reason this case matters so much can be illustrated by remarks by attorney and rival trade publisher Kurt Kelley.  Kelley said that predictability in law is the key to a prosperous republic. While MHProNews has publicly disagreed with several of the reports from Kelley’s quarterly, those remarks directly to MHProNews are arguably spot on.




There are companies in manufactured housing that have millions to billions invested in this industry. There appears to be more than sufficient evidence against Joe Biden and his family to impeach the man and then prosecute him. But as the impeachment of DHS Secretary and Biden (Democratic) appointee Alejandro Mayorkas revealed, the Democratically controlled Senate simply never considered the case. While that may be unconstitutional, what is there that can be done about that concern in a practical level before the next election?

So, much of this is going to play out at the ballot box. Vox’s apparently pro-Democratic writer Prokop noted in the following in his report yesterday. Having noted that numbers on the left think that this conviction will sink Trump, Prokop wrote this.

QuoteMarksLeftSideConsider me skeptical. For one, people have been predicting that this or that scandal will finally be the thing that takes Trump down — driving away enough of his support so that his political career is over — since he first entered politics in 2015. Such predictions continued during his presidencyafter his loss to Joe Bidenand after his attempt to steal a second term for himself ended in violence at the US Capitol. But Trump’s dominance over the GOP base and the Republican Party in general has been unshakable.

I’m also doubtful that swing voters will be particularly affected by this. Trump has long been scandal-plagued, and voters have heard of his legal jeopardy for many years. It is not as if voters are suddenly learning for the first time that he is unethical. The trial itself focused on a matter — hush money Michael Cohen paid to keep Stormy Daniels from going public to allege a sexual encounter with Trump — that was first reported back in 2018. The specific charges are technical, focused on whether internal Trump Organization documents about repaying Cohen were falsely categorized as being for “legal services.”

But Trump tried to steal the 2020 election in plain sight. If voters are still considering voting for him even despite that, it seems unlikely that this conviction on the far less consequential business records matter would be the thing that stops them.

As for those polls in which many voters said they’d ditch Trump if he’s convicted: Voters there are responding to hypothetical questions in a vacuum. But in the real world, these voters will also be exposed to pro-Trump messaging: his complaints that he was unfairly treated, that the prosecution was brought by a partisan Democrat in an extremely Democratic area, that the underlying offense is no big deal, etc.

Finally, there’s another issue: It’s a two-candidate race, and many on-the-fence voters are frustrated with Joe Biden’s presidency. It’s easy to say, in theory, that no one who’s a convicted felon should be allowed to be president. In practice, there will only be two options on the ballot, so the lesser-of-two-evils reasoning will be strong.

That means that if voters decide they really want President Biden out, they may conclude that the only realistic alternative is President Convicted Felon.” ##


MHProNews has noted for some time that this is not a simple left vs. right issue. It would be easier to report on and provide an analysis for is that were the case. America has been steadily infiltrated by what left-leaning billionaire Warren Buffett said is class warfare. That class warfare has pitted leftist billionaires, like himself, worming their way via donations and other mechanisms into the favors of some on the right and even some media on the right. It is such nuance and complexity that must be exposed and defeated. It has taken time and effort to document those links on MHProNews, while maintaining our focus on manufactured housing specific issues.













Chomsky is from the political left. He is arguably at times guilty of paltering. But he has at times aptly described how ‘consent’ in the U.S. is ‘manufactured’ through ‘indoctrination’ fomented by mass media and big tech. This is “manufacturing consent,” to borrow a phrase Chomsky used.  By clouding issues through massive amounts of propaganda that deploys half-truths, paltering, big lies often repeated and more, much of America has been lulled into thinking and behavior that has routinely benefited the very billionaire and 1 percent class that Democrats claim to be running against.









Democrats have apparently been trying to rig the 2024 election through lawfare.  The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) considered the evidence against Trump years ago and declined to prosecute him. Most federal offices in D.C. quite apparently have far more Democrats than Republicans in them, per voting patterns and research.  It is no guarantee that the problematic nature of the charges, an apparently tainted Biden-donor Judge Merchan, or the bevy of weaknesses in the case brought by Bragg provides ample grounds for appeals. The rigged system that could bring this outcome in Manhattan yesterday might continue to work against Trump on appeal. Time will tell. But what is at stake is the traditional American way of life. If the legal system can be so rigged, as in this case and the civil case brought for E. Jean Carroll that Trump lost, as to cause a billionaire and ex-president to lose, how can the ordinary citizen hope to succeed in such an environment? That notion appears to be  part of what is drawing Black men – among others – more into the Trump orbit. There is growing empathy for Trump. There is also the reality that the Trump economy was better for most Americans than “Bidenomics” has proven to be.

It is possible, not a given, but possible that Trump could benefit from this outcome. It is too early to talk landslide or anything like that, because much work with public opinion remains to be done.  But like Trump or not, agree with his policies or not, it is possible that this apparent injustice could prove to be a benefit because he has been willing to take on a rigged system, expose it and fight it.

Despite often key roles played by Democrats in the past, more recently Dems have demonstrably not benefited manufactured housing in the Biden-era. More on such issues in the days ahead. Until the next such report, dig into the insights from the linked reports herein to learn more. The more people grasp how the system is rigged, and how the headlines can best be understood, the better our nation’s odds for a more prosperous future – if a rigged system can be uprooted. Prokop at Vox is a good stand-in for much of the political left. “This is the moment Trump’s critics have been dreaming of for years. But something isn’t right here.” So, “The Felon Frontrunner” could overcome – not because MAGA supporters are brainwashed, but because MAGA supporters grasp the political and media realities. Those realities impact businesses, jobs, and careers. No one is above the law? What about Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, G.W. Bush, and Obama-Biden? For those who want to live in a society where true, not faux, freedom of choice exists, the America First or MAGA movement may well bring in more people as a result of this malicious Manhattan outcome. Time will tell. MHProNews plans to monitor and report as warranted.























In an email to MHProNews, former Trump-era HUD Secretary Ben Carson, M.D., said in part: “Today, these important foundational principles are under siege from the radical left leading America down a dark path. The moral foundation of this country is being stripped away before our very eyes and the future of America hangs in the balance.” ##
