All time moves at precisely the same pace, yet we’ve all experienced time when it seems to move more slowly, or more rapidly.

For tens of millions, this time between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s often seems to go by very quickly.  Jewish and Christian holidays, secular celebrations, shopping, gatherings, parties, and travel.

January 2017 will be upon us soon.

What will that new year bring?

Properly looking at history – recent and more long term actions – may offer clues.

But ultimately, each of us responds or reacts to the ebbs and flows of tide-like events.

epluribusunum-coincurrencypeoplecollage-masthead-industrycommentary-mhpronews
The Washington Post and others reported that some 200 counties that voted for Barack Obama where switched to voting for Donald Trump. This election was status quo vs. shaking up the system. Trump significantly outperformed Romney with minorities. Trump attracted many blue-collar union voters, of all backgrounds. Millions believed that Trump would not be business as usual. Yet some on the left are trying to paint this as an election about “white nationalism;” what nonsense. The Masthead’s writer doesn’t know a single person who voted for Donald Trump who is racist, do you? As Democrat James Carville once quipped, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

E Pluribus Unum

From the Many, One.”  This is the translation of the Latin motto on much of U.S. money.

It is fair to say, along with the president-elect, that healing the nation – and what ails it – will take time.

Some are still in shock, having bought into their own or other’s oft-repeated narrative that the election was over before November 8th.  They believed that Secretary Hillary Clinton would be crowned by the many elites in media, arts, philanthropy, globalists, business and voters as our next president.

The elites weaved a tale on sensationalized facts, painting Donald J. Trump – and several of his key team members – as racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, homophobic, monsters and con artists with a terrible temperament that could only end in nuclear winter for the world.  To them, the GOP nominee had to be stopped.

Ronald Reagan’s oldest son, Michael, opposed Trump at various points in time, but now is coming around and seeing hope in moves like saving 1100 jobs at Carrier. Photo above – Ronald Reagan, left, Donald Trump, right, photo credit – People.

Perhaps part of the problem was that a similar play book was used by Democratic candidates against Republicans for many, many years – going back to at least the time of Ronald Reagan.

Once elected, did President Reagan bring us to nuclear winter? Hardly.  Instead, he brought us the end of the then Cold War, and along with faith-filled freedom seekers in Poland and elsewhere, brought about the fall of the Soviet Union and their Eastern European empire.

Back to events in this recent race.

It’s as if now President-elect Trump’s opponents went to see D’nesh D’Szoza’s movie – Hillary’s America – plus the Clinton Cash movie – got out their spin machine, and projected onto Trump all that those two video documented that the Clintons’ and their political machine were guilty of doing.

An “America First” – Hostile Takeover by a Populist…

To produce relevant and useful news, you first must absorb news. You always begin with more information than you can use, and select what frames and builds out a story well told that will be useful to readers.

presidentelecttrumpsupporters-postedmastheadblogmanufacturedhousingindustrydailybusinessnewsWe won’t look today at why and “how MHProNews got so much right on this past election” – as a regular reader put it – when so many in media got it so wrong.

We will note that Team Trump first beat successful, accomplished GOP rivals.  Then Trump’s unorthodox campaign upended his Democratic rival, all while beating much – not all – in the media.

It was akin to a hostile takeover in business, and Trump beat the elites in politics and the media at their own game.

By doing so, much has been exposed or brought into sharper focus.

The results will become known.

But we already have clues.

The first three weeks after Trump’s unprecedented victory left some in shock, denial and protesting.

Meanwhile, others are celebrating – including many in manufactured housing, as Warren Buffett, Sam Zell, Jim Clayton, Sam Landy, Mark Weiss, DJ Pendleton and Tim Connor – among others – have shared with us.

The markets have responded positively to what economists are calling a pro-growth agenda.

Are we about to enter what could be the most exciting time ever for professionals to tap the opportunities made possible by manufactured and modular housing?

2017 will be a true adventure; exciting.

The Louisville Show lies ahead, followed by the big Tunica Manufactured Housing Show.

With the White House, the House and Senate all under GOP control:

  • Will regulatory and tax policies be rapidly and favorably changed?
  • Will the border be secured?
  • Will the rule of law return?
  • Are you seeing the potential for anti-trust action by a Trump Administration?

Time will tell.

Count us among the prayerfully hopeful that a pro-growth, pro-business, pro-jobs protecting and creating era is about to be ushered in for the U.S.A.
