IDing Core Problems – Offering Fixes – ‘Project 2025-Mandate for Leadership’ – Concerns, Facts, Emerging Cures, Plans, and Analysis; plus MHVille Markets Update


Preface and disclosure: based on public polling in recent years, most adult Americans believe that the nation is on the “wrong track.” One should recall that the “word of the year” for 2022 was “gaslighting.” Per Merriam-Webster’s word of 2022 “Gaslighting” is “mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful.” MHProNews has reported in recent years the importance of understanding the tactics of manipulation that include paltering, posturing, and projecting onto others what the guilty party is doing themselves. Decades of research reflect hundreds of billions in waste fraud and abuse in federal programs alone. For example, left-leaning CNBC reported recently that: “The U.S. government wastes billions of taxpayer dollars every year. Improper payments, which refer to payments that are made incorrectly by the government, cost the U.S. $247 billion in 2022, according to the Government Accountability Office [GAO]” on 4.18.2023. Imagine, the federal government’s own accountability watchdog, the GAO has said that $247 billion dollars has been lost to waste, fraud, and abuse – and it is merely a blip in the news. Some reading this article may be learning about that GAO report for the first time. Our perception of reality is skewed – politicians on both sides of the two major parties have said “the system is rigged.” (Click to see the graphic for this and the proceeding hotlink.) People have their everyday lives on their minds, and only so much time remains for pondering issues like why there is a growing lack of affordable housing. The lack of affordable housing impacts millions, in some ways, it impacts everyone because housing values are driven by not only financing, but also by the laws of supply and demand (click for graphic).  Beyond housing needs, broken borders, increasing crime in major and other cities, record spending, exploding federal debts, Social Security, cases of apparent unequal and weaponized justice and crony bureaucratic behavior, concerns over election integrity, it quickly becomes apparent that the reasons to think the nation is on the ‘wrong track’ are many.  Those who think that government is ‘the solution’ to so many problems may be having a hard time reconciling that notion with the increasing evidence that public officials are often near the root of several problems. As but one example specifically related to housing and how government fails to be part of the solution, the AEI Housing Center’s Tobias Peter told U.S. Senators that public policies are causing problems rather than solving them.


Peter isn’t alone in that belief, because HUD’s own researchers reported approaching 2 years ago that the causes and solutions to the affordable housing crisis are largely known. But for 50 years, per those HUD researchers, politicians and public officials have made promises without delivering. See the details and manufactured housing related insights on that in the report linked below.




According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in November of 2022 the average cost for a single section manufactured home was about $88,000 (home only, not land). Divide that $247 billion figure cited above that the GAO thinks was lost to waste, fraud, and abuse in 2022 by that 88k dollar figure. Federal waste, fraud and abuse could have paid for about 2,806,818 brand new single section manufactured homes. Since HUD admits there are some 600,000 homeless – the worst total in years – the number of new HUD Code manufactured homes that could be built based on that waste, fraud, and abuse could in theory end homelessness several times over. That isn’t said as a policy proposal, but it is stated to highlight how government routinely fails to be the solution.  Some may recall that during the Obama-Biden Administration there were claims about ‘solving’ the health care crisis and how government intervention would solve problems. Because of his insights into reality, Thomas Sowell debunked that notion at that time in just a few words. In hindsight, Sowell proved to be correct. More than a decade after “ObamaCare” was enacted, the U.S. still has similar health care delivery problems, and in some instances, worse.





So, this high-level snapshot is not founded on hyperbole, but on reality. It also speaks to the issue that MHARR raised earlier this week with their report on the possible reversal of the Chevron deference. The system is so rigged that for decades, administrative agencies have had the benefit of the doubt on a range of issues despite the fact that those agencies are not solving the problems they were created to address.


Supreme Court Case Could ‘Significantly Alter’ Federal Regulatory Law Landscape, Including Key Matters Impacting Federally-Regulated Manufactured Housing Industry; plus MHMarkets Update


Against that backdrop, numbers of states in the U.S. are increasingly coming to realize the federal government’s failures on issues like the border. The leaky southern border obviously is causing millions to flood our nation at a rate that current home building production levels can’t keep up with.   That’s just one concern out of many from states, which are causing a growing number of states and citizens to rethink the structure of the U.S. Senate. Prior to the passage of the 17th Amendment, the states appointed senators to represent state interests to the federal government. The Texas GOP – and other groups – have proposed that the 17th Amendment should be abolished, and that the election of U.S. senators should once again be made state legislators. Originally, per the website: “Article I, Section 3, Clause 1: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.”



Another proposal to reign in a runaway federal government is the Article V Convention of the States (COS). Per the COS pocket guide the following. “The truth is the Washington establishment will never, ever limit its own power. We just can’t rely on the politicians who got us into this mess to get us out of it. We need a solution that will let us go around the Washington political establishment and rein in the out-of-control federal government, permanently.”

Recent COS news headlines speak volumes. Some examples:

Those survey results underscore point previously made in the deep dive into national issues in the MHProNews report linked below. Using sources from the left and right that include an extensive New York Times survey, public policies are examined in the report below that could unite the majority of the country on concepts widely agreed upon.




MHProNews has aimed for years to cite information from sources that span the left-right divide. By sifting the wheat from the chaff and offer insights and possible solutions based on those sources and sound principles hidden to blatant agendas can be separated from the cloud of confusion that often exists – often precisely for the purpose of benefiting a few while tens of millions may suffer consequences. As a disclosure, this is consistent with our parent company’s management being political independents who support, and vote, based on issues instead of blindly walking in lockstep with this or that political party.

Against the above foundation is a recent news release by the Heritage Foundation proclaimed: “2025 Presidential Transition Project.” It is the headline topic “Mandate for Leadership” offered by the Heritage Foundation which aims to fix the scores of disconnects between what a federal agency is supposed to be doing versus what they are actually doing – which is routinely less than their legally mandated functions.

According to the Heritage Foundation: “For over two years, the Left has ignored the voice of everyday Americans leading to crippling inflation, biological males dominating women’s sports, rampant violence, and a crisis in education not seen in decades. Our country is all but unrecognizable. This is why the conservative movement is coming together to prepare for the next conservative administration.” Their press release will be Part I of this article. Part II will provide some sifting of the wheat from the chaff in our additional information with MHProNews analysis and commentary.


Part I

Project 2025 Publishes Comprehensive Policy Guide, ‘Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise’

WASHINGTONWith the goal of shaping policy decisions among presidential candidates, the 2025 Presidential Transition Project announced the publication of the ninth edition of “Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise.” It’s the earliest publication of “Mandate” ever—months before candidates square off in the first presidential primary debate.

A comprehensive policy guide for the next conservative U.S. president, the book pulls from the expertise of hundreds of political appointees, policy scholars, and conservative leaders across the conservative movement. The book builds upon the legacy of the 1981 edition of “Mandate for Leadership,” which appeared on The Washington Post’s paperback bestseller list.

Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise” offers both specific proposals for addressing every major issue facing the country and a blueprint for how to restructure each agency to solve those issues.

Among the recommendations in this edition:

  • Restore the integrity of the Department of Justice to ensure accountability by giving the FBI a hard rest, ensuring consistent litigation decisions, and enforcing immigration laws.
  • Solidify our border by restructuring the Department of Homeland Security and its priorities in ways that streamline the immigration process, end unclear immigration visas, and create a more secure immigration process.
  • Break up the Department of Education to strengthen education freedom, enhance parental rights in education, and protect taxpayers from student loan “forgiveness.”

Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise” features 30 chapters spanning all aspects of the federal government. Editors Paul Dans, director of Project 2025, and Steven Groves, the Margaret Thatcher fellow at Heritage, worked with more than 35 primary authors and hundreds of contributors to assemble the 900-page book, which will be distributed Friday at Heritage’s two-day Leadership Summit in National Harbor, Maryland.

Heritage President Dr. Kevin Roberts released the following statement Friday praising the publication:

“For over two years, the Left has ignored the voice of everyday Americans leading to crippling inflation, biological males dominating women’s sports, rampant violence, and a crisis in education not seen in decades. Our country is all but unrecognizable.

“This is why the conservative movement is coming together to prepare for the next conservative administration. Heritage is convening the conservative movement behind the policies to ensure that the next president has the right policy and personnel necessary to dismantle the administrative state and restore self-governance to the American people.

“‘The Conservative Promise’ is just the first step in preparing future conservative leaders for the task of serving their country, and it will continue to guide the movement-wide coalition. We know what time it is; the conservative movement is on offense to restore our great nation.”

Since the first edition of “Mandate for Leadership” more than 40 years ago, this “policy bible” aims to provide administrations with a blueprint of policy solutions. The Reagan administration implemented nearly half of the ideas included in the first edition by the end of his first year in office, while the Trump administration embraced nearly 64% of the 2016 edition’s policy solutions after one year.

The following is a list of the 30 chapters and authors for each.

Chapter 1: White House Office, Rick Dearborn
Chapter 2: Executive Office of the President of the United States, Russ Vought
Chapter 3: Central Personnel Agencies: Donald Devine, Dennis Dean Kirk, and Paul Dans
Chapter 4: Department of Defense, Christopher Miller
Chapter 5: Department of Homeland Security, Ken Cuccinelli
Chapter 6: Department of State, Kiron K. Skinner
Chapter 7: Intelligence Community, Dustin J. Carmack
Chapter 8: U.S. Agency for Global Media, Mora Namdar; Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Mike Gonzalez
Chapter 9: Agency for International Development, Max Primorac
Chapter 10: Department of Agriculture, Daren Bakst
Chapter 11: Department of Education, Lindsey M. Burke
Chapter 12: Department of Energy and Related Commissions, Bernard L. McNamee
Chapter 13: Environmental Protection Agency, Mandy M. Gunasekara
Chapter 14: Department of Health and Human Services, Roger Severino
Chapter 15: Department of Housing and Urban Development, Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., MD
Chapter 16: Department of the Interior, William Perry Pendley
Chapter 17: Department of Justice, Gene Hamilton
Chapter 18: Department of Labor and Related Agencies, Jonathan Berry
Chapter 19: Department of Transportation, Diana Furchtgott-Roth
Chapter 20: Department of Veterans Affairs, Brooks D. Tucker
Chapter 21: Department of Commerce, Thomas F. Gilman
Chapter 22: Department of the Treasury, William L. Walton, Stephen Moore, and David R. Burton
Chapter 23: Export-Import Bank, Veronique de Rugy and Jennifer Hazelton
Chapter 24: Federal Reserve, Paul Winfree
Chapter 25: Small Business Administration, Karen Kerrigan
Chapter 26: Trade, Peter Navarro and Kent Lassman
Chapter 27: Securities and Exchange Commission, David R. Burton; Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Robert Bowes

Part II – Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

MHProNews is not necessarily endorsing each and every aspect of what the Project 2025 ‘Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise.’ That said, for reasons noted above and linked from reports herein, MHProNews does see the need to reign in the regulatory state and fix the issues of waste, fraud, abuse and more.  A more efficient government  which operates within constitutional and other legal/moral norms could be useful in fixing what’s gone wrong in America.

With such notions in mind, MHProNews previously published items like insights by Theo Wold, linked below. What Wold exposed, Project 2025 produces a detailed plan for a fix. Heritage is also developing a list of possible officials that could be ready to step into office should a disruptor like Trump or another figure comes into office in 2025. On the Democratic side, there are also developments that may be promising, as will be noted below.


‘What Should the GOP Do Now?’ Theodore ‘Theo’ Wold Rips – ‘Republicans Are Failing Unless They Are Disrupting, Discrediting, and Destroying the Federal Bureaucracy – Statements, Facts, Analysis


As MHProNews noted yesterday and previously, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., J.D., has come out swinging in his bid to be his party’s nominee for a 2024 presidential candidate. He’s saying that what’s gone wrong in America has much to do with the unholy alliance between big corporate interests, numbers of billionaires, and governmental powers.

The Bobby Kennedy Jr. speech referenced in the tweet above is found in the report linked below.


‘Spirit of Rebellion’ RF Kennedy Jr ‘My Candidacy for Democratic Nominee for President Aims to End Corrupt Merger of State-Corporate Power Threatening New Feudalism in USA;’ plus MHMarkets Updates






Those tweets and topics are a taste of the flavors of thoughtful concerns and possible solutions to long festering issues in the U.S. Time and again, Kennedy brings an national problem back to its corporate-governmental links.  Per Kennedy at his kickoff speech: “My mission over the next 18 months of this campaign and…throughout my presidency will be to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power that is threatening now…to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism in our country.”  On September 13, 2020, the  image to the linked report below was uploaded. It specifically mentions the rise of feudalism in the U.S. and also outlines the corrupt merger of corporate and governmental power.



Put differently, while there are obviously differences between Kennedy’s take on some issues – like climate change – and those of this evidence-based publication’s editorial stances, nevertheless, one must lean in and recognize that Democrat Kennedy is a throwback to his late Democratic uncle, President John F. Kennedy. The Kennedy Democrats of yesteryear have been described by award winning former journalist turned WMAL pundit Chris Plante as being closer to the modern GOP than they are to contemporary Democrats. In short order, some polls put Kennedy’s modest budget campaign at 21 percent, more than double where they started. As a point of comparison, RJK Jr.’s campaign is polling at about the same level now as Governor Ron DeSantis (FL-R) is, and DeSantis gets far more mainstream media coverage. The Wall Street Journal and NBC News recently reported that DeSantis is at about 24 percent. While not officially declared, DeSantis is considered deposed President Donald J. Trump’s chief rival. Which begs the question: why aren’t more mainstream media outlets giving the Kennedy 2024 its earned due?

The answers to that are as troubling as the reasons why the corrupt, crony “merger” of what Kennedy said was “state and corporate power that is threatening now…to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism in our country.”

This column began with the reminder Merriam-Webster’s word of 2022 “Gaslighting” is “mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful.” 



Gaslighting isn’t new.



It has been occurring in the U.S. and abroad for generations, although some might debate whether the intensity of gaslighting today is greater than in years past. That remark attributed to Ford dates back to the 1930s. If there was ignorance of the complete reality then, why should we be surprised that there is a similar ignorance today?




That ignorance is rooted in a series of system failures. Well informed manufactured housing professionals know that there is a widespread ignorance about the realities of modern manufactured homes. Who is responsible for that ignorance? Ignorance is not a dirty word – Oxford Languages says it means a: “lack of knowledge or information.” MHProNews has periodically pointed out the systemic failures in education, media, among numbers of political figures/public officials, nonprofits and corporate powers. It may be tempting to say it is hopeless. Kennedy doesn’t seem to think it is hopeless, or he wouldn’t be running for his party’s nomination. The Heritage Foundation doesn’t think it is hopeless, they are laying out a broad strategy for the next conservative president. The Article V Convention of the States (COS) movement doesn’t think things are hopeless, they are fighting for positive, peaceful, constitutional changes. MHARR doesn’t think matters in our profession are hopeless, they are fighting day by day to inform the industry and explain what is vs. what should be occurring. MHProNews/MHLivingNews don’t think things are hopeless either. Rather, we have long cited the principle which is the motto of the Christophers – It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

It is time for more of our industry’s professionals to get engaged in the fight against ignorance, against gaslighting, and against the corrupt merger of corporate and governmental power. One day at a time, one candle at a time, one mind at a time, until the light of truth prevails. The alternative to spreading hopeful truth is to surrender to the rising police state that billionaire Nick Hauner predicted some eight years ago. RFK Jr. is warning about the same things, as are others. ##

There are various attributions to this motto, including Confucius and Elanor Roosevelt. But MHProNews’ first encounter with this maxim was the motto of the Christopher Society. Light and heat are fine cures for specific needs. Only light can cast out the darkness.


PS: history provides lessons that can be inspirational when understood and applied.  Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, for decades, billions believed the odds were low that numbers of formerly Communist countries aligned with the old USSR – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – could ever fall. But in nations like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Yugoslavia – movements for freedom from communist and socialist rule bubbled for years.  The police states that existed in the former eastern European Warsaw Pact nations aligned with the old USSR regained their independence. The map of Central and Eastern Europe has changed dramatically, as did the map of the former Soviet Union. Those stand as modern examples of circumstances that are arguably more difficult than what exists in the Western world, including the U.S., today. The battle we face today is winnable. The first step is to understand reality instead of the cleverly crafted gaslighting of a large part of the population and numbers of professions, including, but not limited to the manufactured housing industry. The temptation to ‘give in’ may seem like it ‘can’t be wrong.’ Whatever the effort, others before us did it. We can too. The music video based on Rocky IV below has had 38 million views. Without the effort, there is no victory. No pain, no gain.






There are millions more ‘of us’ than there are of ‘them.’ They are called the 1 percent, or the one-tenth of 1 percent, for a reason.

In conclusion for this segment of today’s report, it is obvious that manufactured housing is underperforming. The questions that must be asked and authentically answered must include the answers to – why is this so? Some of the factors are internal to the industry. Others are external. To learn more about the latest factual data, evidence and related analysis, see the report linked below. ###
