Millions Want Affordable Home-‘No Pro Can be This Incompetent’ ‘Solutions to Crony Capitalist Suppressing Trusted News, Media’-WND Puts Tony Kovach Op-Ed on Homepage; plus MHMarkets Update


“About 28 million Americans plan on buying a home in the next 12 months, according to NerdWallet’s recent annual Home Buyer Report. Typically, they’re hoping to spend $200,000. This will be extremely difficult when the national median sales price of all homes, including condos, is $342,000, according to the latest data from Zillow,” said MarketWatch and MSN, which amplified the Nerd Wallet produced research on 1.31.2023. Not unlike the recent Freddie Mac research report unpacked on MHLivingNews published last week that says 25 million American renters are “mortgage ready” for a manufactured home, these and other mainstream and research headlines practically beg the question. How can any serious professional promoting HUD Code manufactured housing at the national association level be so incompetent that they can’t lead manufactured housing to production levels 5 to 10+ times their current levels?

Hold that apt inquiry, because a new Q&A with Danny Ghorbani, former Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) vice president and the founding president of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) is nearly ready for publication. It specifically looks at MHI’s role in the woefully underperforming status quo of manufactured housing. That pending exclusive Q&A with RV MH Hall of Fame Inductee Ghorbani will be published in the next few days here on MHProNews. Note, Ghorbani’s take is his unique take. So, don’t expect him to say the same things, or the same way, that this article does.

Speaking of exclusive, on WND’s home page for 1.30.2023 and 1.31.2023 was the featured image shown above. It included this teaser by WND: “Exclusive: L.A. “Tony” Kovach goes to bat for WND, others struggling under establishment’s boot.”

Solutions to crony capitalists’ suppression of trusted news sites

Exclusive: L.A. “Tony” Kovach goes to bat for WND, others struggling under establishment’s boot

By WND Guest Columnist Published January 30, 2023 at 7:20pm

L.A. “Tony” Kovach

QuoteMarksLeftSideWND.comParlerOANN TVNewsmax TVPrager U videos. A deposed President Donald J. Trump. These are just some of the media operations and a high-profile billionaire that have been substantially demonetized, throttled, and/or “deplatformed” in recent years by powerful corporations. Parler was taken completely offline for weeks before finally making a comeback. Thankfully, WND has avoided Parler’s fate (being taken offline). But what is to be done about this pattern of abusive misbehavior by corporate giants? Are not millions of Americans hurt by this nefarious process? How can those impacted fight back?

Let’s note that antitrust and other laws may create penalties for calling for a boycott of a named business. So, let’s be clear that we are not hereby calling for a boycott.

That said, as to who is harmed, Reuters reported research that determined that oligopoly style of monopolization spreading in the U.S. costs Americans jobs and reportedly reduces employees pay by some 20%. So, this threat goes beyond dissenting liberals or conservatives in media. This hurts YOU and your loved ones financially.

Notable Democrat-supporting liberal Robert F. Kennedy Jr., J.D., (RFK Jr.) is suing corporate media giants. As WND reported, Kennedy said, “Nobody has ever complied their way out of totalitarianism.”

Kennedy’s lawsuit is significant because it is based on antitrust law.

Unlike some who file suits and never win, Kennedy and his organization have enjoyed several big court victories, including a recent one. The Defender explained, “Federal antitrust law prohibits firms from colluding to deny critical facilities or market access to rivals.”

From the complaint itself: “CHD with this lawsuit aims to vindicate the freedom of speech and of the press. The Defendants are the BBC, The Washington Post, the Associated Press, and Reuters.”

There are other hopeful developments about pushback against corporate giants.

“Red state” attorneys general and a treasurer reviewed their states’ investments and made the decision to pull investments in those corporate giants. State-level probes foreshadow litigation. Several in big tech had their stocks take big hits in 2022. When “get woke and go broke” becomes a meaningful risk, it could in time cause changes among leftist corporate leadership.

If individuals decide to no longer do business with a company or a parent company of a firm because they have targeted liberal or conservative voices that don’t blindly follow the corporate-government party line, so be it. Given the moves outlined by state officials, those who make such a choice could be in good company. Furthermore, we still possess First Amendment and other God-given and constitutionally protected rights. Obviously, people should avoid feeding hands that bite theirs.

People of goodwill should actively support – financially and through reading/viewing engagement – operations like WND that have been wrongfully targeted by corrupt crony capitalists and their federal, political henchmen.

The Civic Alliance and World Economic Forum (WEF) are two umbrella groups that have used corporate influence to push public officials for policies that big businesses apparently favor. Civic Alliance and WEF corporate member lists are found at this link. You may be surprised how many of those firms are often the epitome of the 0.1 of 1 percent “establishment elites” who have “rigged the system” in their own favor and that your business and/or family are buying products or services from.

So, on one level, people should discern if they should or should not financially support companies or organizations because their politics threaten the people’s rights and livelihood.

Congress and state officials can and should hold hearings on these issues.

Republicans were punished by numbers of Civic Alliance/WEF members following the 2020 elections. NPR didn’t mention the Civic Alliance or WEF in its report on corporations that punished the GOP, perhaps in part because some of those firms are donors to PBS and NPR. But a check of that corporate member list of WEF and Civic Alliance firms reveals several “hits” with companies NPR affiliate GBU named.

Popular author and WND columnist Patrice Lewis made a related point recently. Those threatened or oppressed by corporate powers ought to establish their own list of parallel institutions.

As an example of how readers can promote “A Free Press for a Free People,” which WND has been for 25 years, consider this. If you call into talk radio, why not mention on air? Make WND part of the point you’re making. Mention an article you read. Keep in mind that call screeners are looking out for plugs, so you may candidly mention a generic point to a call screener, but specifically mention an article’s headline and by name once on air.

Social media may throttle conservatives and liberals who oppose the rigged system, but sharing links to a topic whenever possible can help.

Fine examples of recent WND reports worth sharing are the ones linked here and here. Both are hot topics.

Those points said, let’s pivot back to the example from RFK Jr’s legal action. Per the pleadings are the following.

“1. This is an antitrust action.
2. It is also an action to defend the freedom of speech and of the press.”

Note how the following applies to WND, OANN, Newsmax, or Prager U, among others.

  1. The world’s dominant Internet platforms are facilities essential to the ability of small news publishers to compete and even to survive in the online news market. Indeed, for all practical purposes, to be denied access to those platforms is to be denied access to the market itself.
  2. Thus the TNI [Trusted News Initiative] is a classic group boycott: “a concerted attempt by a group of competitors” to “disadvantage [other] competitors” by “cut[ting] off access” to a “facility or market necessary to enable the boycotted firm[s] to compete.” Northwest Wholesale Stationers, 472 U.S. at 294.
  3. Plaintiffs are among the many victims of the TNI’s agreement and its group boycott.
  4. Plaintiffs are online news publishers who, as a result of the TNI’s group boycott, have been censored, de-monetized, demoted, throttled, shadow-banned, and/or excluded entirely from platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Linked-In.
  5. While the “Trusted News Initiative” publicly purports to be a self-appointed “truth police” extirpating online “misinformation,” in fact it has suppressed wholly accurate and legitimate reporting in furtherance of the economic self-interest of its members.
  6. For example, TNI members have deemed the following to be “misinformation” that could not be published on the world’s dominant Internet platforms: (A) reporting that COVID may have originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China; (B) reporting that the COVID vaccines do not prevent infection; (C) reporting that vaccinated persons can transmit COVID to others; and (D) reporting that compromising emails and videos were found on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.”

There are numbers of takeaways from the above. One is that Kennedy, a Democrat, is indirectly exposing the Biden family and Democratic corruption through this litigation. Conservatives should bear in mind that perhaps 65 to 80% of the country largely agree on a range of issues. Strategic thinkers should carefully unpack the information linked here, because bigger audiences – and more supporters – are available.

Let’s conclude by citing two items on WND that point to solutions to these vexing issues.

The first by this writer made the case for robust antitrust action.

Another is a related December 2022 topic that is essential for Christians and people of good will to grasp.

Lawmakers and public officials must be pushed into action. Elections are important, but engagement must be ongoing. The political left and corporate power have made an unholy alliance that never sleeps in the view of observers like Justin Haskins at the Heartland Institute. The money power must be uprooted to turn the tide in the battle for America’s future and that of you and your loved ones. Carefully read the linked items to learn more. Prayer with good deeds works. ##


L.A. “Tony” Kovach is the co-founder of MHProNews and MHLivingNews which are widely acknowledged to be the largest, most-read and evidence-based trade media serving the affordable housing and mobile home/manufactured housing profession and consumers. ###


Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

The same WND column by Kovach cited liberals as well as more conservative observers like Justin Haskins at the Heartland Institute’s or WND columnist Patrice Lewis. Each of those writers have raised concerns about the problems caused by the steady consolidation of business and wealth in the hands of a relatively few people, who often support Democratic causes and candidates. Publisher Joseph Farah cited the retiring conservative author and former independent and Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan. Citing the left-leaning and billionaire Jeff Bezos Washington Post, Buchanan observed in a column that ““As a class billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year, totaling $13.1 trillion.”

“While most of the world’s wealthiest people prospered during the pandemic, thanks in part to stock prices,” writes the Post, “millions of Americans grappled with job loss, food insecurity, debt, eviction and poverty.” Query: Where was the outrage?” wrote Buchanan.

Former President Bill Clinton (D) Labor Secretary Robert Reich recently launched into a critique of this growing pattern of rising concentration of wealth, economic, and political power. Reich’s analysis called for a “break up of monopolies.” The application of Reich’s thesis is explored in a recent MHProNews report linked below.

‘U.S. Should Break Up Monopolies’ Democrat Robert Reich Guardian Plan Would Hit Clayton Homes, Skyline Champion, and Cavco Industries with Costly Antitrust Lawsuit – Statements, Facts, Analysis

So, from the left-center, and right, there appears to be a growing realization of the need to break up monopoly power that is being reported by MHProNews.

Per Buchanan’s column referenced above, he said the following. “today’s billionaires’ boys club has come to understand how to make its astonishing wealth acceptable, by ingratiating themselves with their old ideological enemies.”

Buchanan continued, “Set up a tax-exempt foundation, fund it with billions of dollars, invite in liberals to sit on the board, and, at munificent salaries, to run it and distribute its income to liberal causes. The way to diminish leftist resentment at huge piles of private wealth is to give them a cut.”  More pull quotes from Buchanan’s “Where did all those Capitalist Pigs go” column are as follows.

  • QuoteMarksLeftSideForbes’s 35th annual ranking of billionaires, last year witnessed a population explosion. Some 660 new billionaires were added to the number for a total of 2,755.
  • And more than one in every four billionaires is an American.
  • “As a class billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year, totaling $13.1 trillion,” says the Washington Post.
  • “The United States had the most billionaires, at 724, extending a rapid rise in wealth that hasn’t happened since the Rockefellers and the Carnegies roughly a century ago. China, including Macau and Hong Kong, had the second highest number of billionaires: 698.”
  • “While most of the world’s wealthiest people prospered during the pandemic, thanks in part to stock prices,” writes the Post, “millions of Americans grappled with job loss, food insecurity, debt, eviction and poverty.”
  • Query: Where was the outrage?
  • In previous times like these, where the rich got richer and the poor and working class rode the rails, we would have heard the excoriations of economic populists and echoes of TR’s “malefactors of great wealth” and FDR’s “forces of entrenched greed.”
  • But Forbes’ report of the population explosion among billionaires in 2020 passed seemingly without protest.
  • The dogs did not bark. Why not?
  • Also, today’s billionaires’ boys club has come to understand how to make its astonishing wealth acceptable, by ingratiating themselves with their old ideological enemies.
  • Set up a tax-exempt foundation, fund it with billions of dollars, invite in liberals to sit on the board, and, at munificent salaries, to run it and distribute its income to liberal causes. The way to diminish leftist resentment at huge piles of private wealth is to give them a cut.

Buchanan noted to how Jeff Bezos’ Amazon made it easier for Americans to ‘survive’ the lockdowns, which may have bought them a measure of good will.  He apparently hints that there are other factors, without going specifically into their respective media interests.

While Buchanan mentioned some insightful factors without specifically ‘naming names,’ the WND Kovach op-ed made the point that:  “”Red state” attorneys general and a treasurer reviewed their states’ investments and made the decision to pull investments in those corporate giants.” By citing liberal Democrats, like RFK Jr’s antitrust action, or Robert Reich’s call for antitrust effort, which has been the runaway top report on MHProNews in January 2023.

Partisanship is therefore not the driving force behind the desire to see oligopoly monopolists and their corporate interests broken up and reigned in. Meaning, this is a trans-partisan movement that has the potential for uniting much of the left and right for those who provide the correct messaging and efforts.

Circling back to the concerns about MHI’s apparent failure to take massive opportunities and translate them into millions of new manufactured home sales is but one of several possible takeaways from this evidenced-laden article. The fact that MHI corporate and staff leaders, nor their attorneys, will respond to these concerns, is a fact that should be evaluated by independents, investors, consumers, and others.  But the fact remains. Numbers of third-party reports and studies have recently made similar points. The opportunities for manufactured housing are large to massive. Yet the results observed are only about 30 percent of the last manufactured housing industry high in 1998. How can MHI leaders be singing their own praises, given such a tepid results that have fostered consolidation in it wake?

If not for alternative media, in your face issues that the mainstream media often manages to ignore, or that big tech manages to censor, throttle or suppress, might not be known at all by thousands of industry pros, investors, and potentially millions of affordable housing seekers.  There are reasons why millions of pageviews are occurring every year on MHProNews, MHLivingNews, or by the tens of millions on sites like WND. Inquiring minds, the curious who seek not mere answers but want the truth, they want to know. They also want to know what can be done to remedy what’s gone wrong in America.
