Interest in national news has dropped, per several sources. While the reasons vary, a common point is because trust in news sources are often low. Another factor is that millions are sick and tired of the steady diet of bad news. Like it or not, what happens in our nation obviously impacts to various degrees the manufactured home industry. So MHProNews, which has periodically shared news reports on topics that are not directly related to manufactured housing is testing out this Saturday a ‘news roundup’ of stories that even those who follow mainstream media more closely may have missed. How these relate to manufactured housing will be made more apparent by additional information and linked reports from MHProNews/MHLivingNews.
In no particular order of importance are these topics:
- Ex-Obama-Biden Admin official, and CNN Commentator Van Jones describes Life for Blacks Under Biden
- Biden approval among Hispanics – the latest polling.
- Mortgage Demand – a leading indicator for housing demand and sales velocity – new data.
- Karma Flashback? 1 Year Ago Biden Said This About Those Who Got Covid Vax and Boosters.
- Congressman Questions William “Bill” Gates III, Warren Buffett strategic ally, on why he’s making big farmland purchases.
- Biden’s plans for bypassing Congress to ‘fight climate emergency.’
- Big Communist Chinese Plan Announced That Undermines Claims of Global Climate Change Threat
With that ‘news roundup’ plan, let’s dive right in.
The first in a series of reports made available to MHProNews through our strategic agreement with the WND NewsCenter is the following.
CNN’s Van Jones: Life ‘worse’ for blacks under Biden
Economy has ‘really walloped the community’
By Art Moore Published July 21, 2022 at 7:44pm
The poor economy is a “special heartbreak” for African-American voters, in part because of the trust they put in Joe Biden, says CNN contributor and longtime Democratic activist Van Jones.
First of all, he said in a segment Thursday, “the pain is more intense.”
“The rising gas prices, food prices really walloped the black community in a particular way,” Jones said.
“But the hope was so much higher,” he said. “You have a community that came out in huge numbers in 2018, huge numbers in 2020, expecting things to get a lot better and, instead – economically, at least – it didn’t come true. It got worse.
“And so, you’re going through a summer now of real heartbreak with black voters – the polls show that,” he said.
“And I think Biden has got to take that very seriously.”

Sen. Tim Scott: ‘Unprecedented progress’ for blacks under Trump
In June 2020, amid the COVID pandemic and racial turmoil in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows a remarkable 41% of blacks approved of the performance of then-President Trump.
In the 2016 election, Trump won only 8% of the black vote, a typical figure for Republican candidates.
While some might have viewed the survey by the “conservative” Rasmussen as an outlier, its finding in December 2019 of 34% approval among blacks was affirmed by an Emerson College poll that had it at 35%. And a Marist poll at the time found 33% of non-white voters in approval of the president.
At the time, Black Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina praised Trump’s work for the black community in an interview, saying “the last three years of progress have been unprecedented in my lifetime.”
Scott said there needs to be “a concrete conversation about the policies of Vice President Joe Biden versus the policies of President Trump.”
“If we have that conversation, there will be a clear delineation about progress that has been made on behalf of of the most vulnerable communities in this country under President Trump, and some of the challenges that were inspired and enacted by Vice President Biden,” he said. “So that would be a clear contrast and one that would be worthy of actual investment of time, energy to hear that debate.”
Meanwhile, one of Biden’s key black supporters, Rep. James Clyburn – credited with rescuing the former VP’s flailing campaign by endorsing him in South Carolina – said he “cringed” at Biden’s assertion in an interview that black voters “have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Among Trump’s accomplishments for blacks, Scott said, are permanent funding for historically black colleges and universities and the creation of 7 million jobs, two-thirds of which went to minorities and to women.
“We had an increase the labor force participation rate among African-Americans,” Scott said. “Home ownership, I believe, was up by two points under this administration. Access to a quality education improved, help for sickle cell anemia secured under this president, so when you look at the actual accomplishments – put aside all of the vitriol, all of the rhetoric, all of the things that some may find distasteful – the actual policy positions have been incredibly concrete.
“And I would say this has been the best policy position of a president in my lifetime, and that’s what I know from just personal experience and having watched this for the last 30 years of my life.”
Senior Trump campaign official Katrina Pierson, who is black, said Trump’s support among blacks was “going in the right direction.”
Pierson noted Trump had respect in the black community long before he ran for president, with Don King and Jesse Jackson counted among his friends. But when he ran for the presidency, she said, the Democrats smeared him as a “racist.”
“He couldn’t understand it at first, and it’s very frustrating,” said Pierson. “But it came with the baggage of running as a Republican.
“It went through a couple of years, during the campaign, where Trump’s a racist, he hates brown people, but yet he’s doing all of these things that the first black president never did for black people, and so you kind of have this new perspective on who Donald Trump is,” she said.
Trump also had the support of superstar rapper Kanye West, who advised black Americans in an appearance in New York City not to vote Democrat. And in an interview, he said black Americans have been “brainwashed” by Democrats who are making them abort their children. ##
Next up is this report about Democrats and Biden’s sagging support among Hispanics, which may foreshadow what’s ahead with Blacks and other minorities. From the WND NewsCenter to MHProNews is the following. Note: while this plays into the argument by those who say there is a ‘red wave’ coming in November that will sweep Democrats out of power in the U.S. House and possibly the U.S. Senate too, it should not be considered a ‘done deal’ until voters actually vote and those votes are properly tallied.
Biden’s approval among Hispanic voters plunges to 19%
And 45% would prefer GOP control of the Senate

President Joe Biden’s approval rating fell to 19% among Hispanic voters in a Wednesday Quinnipiac poll.
Hispanics were the least likely demographic to approve of Biden, the poll of 1,523 Americans found. Among Hispanic respondents, 19% approved of Biden’s handling of the economy, 23% approved of his foreign policy, 45% approved of his coronavirus response and 22% approved of his handling of gun violence.

Hispanic respondents also appeared to prefer former President Donald Trump to Biden, with 38% holding a favorable view of Trump, the poll found. This demographic also favored Republicans in the coming midterms, with 45% wanting Republican control of the Senate and 43% preferring Democrat control.
This demographic also had more favorable views of the Supreme Court compared to Biden; 32% of Hispanics approved of how the court was handling its job, compared to 17% of black respondents and 42% of white respondents.
White and black voters were more likely to approve of Biden compared to Hispanics, at 29% and 61% respectively, the poll found.
Biden has fared poorly in other recent polls, hitting an all-time low in economic approval ratings Monday and consistently polling poorly among Hispanics. He won 63% of the Hispanic vote in 2020, but his approval rating in this demographic has been steadily declining.
The poll was conducted July 14-18 and had a margin of error of 2.5%.
The White House did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

FEARS OF THE FUTURE
Mortgage demand falls to lowest level since 2000
Refinance loans continue to drop
By WND News Services Published July 21, 2022 at 4:57pm
(BREITBART) – Higher interest rates and very high home prices dragged down demand for mortgages for the third straight week, data from the Mortgage Bankers Association indicated Wednesday. Mortgage applications fell 6.3 percent for the week ending July 15, 2022, the MBA said.
Applications for a mortgage to purchase a home dropped 7 percent for the week. Compared with a year ago, applications are down 19 percent.
Refinance loans, which are extremely sensitive to mortgage rates, continued to fall. The refinance index fell four percent from the previous week and is 80 percent lower than a year ago.
Next up, as manufactured housing industry professionals know, climate change and the DOE energy rule have been front and center in U.S. politics for years, but increasingly so during the Biden-Democratic control of the U.S. House, Senate and White House. While some in media and in power assert that climate change is undisputable science, others use scientific evidence to deny that claim. Still others have pointed to the behavior of some of the elites who promote the climate alarm message as either being hypocrites or contradicting through their lifestyle and choices their own narrative. Former President Barack Obama and PINO Joe Biden’s respective ocean-front residences are ludicrous and hypocritical choices if ‘rising sea levels’ are a serious threat. That supports the notion that climate change is a strategy with an unstated agenda rather than a genuine concern that threatens all life on the planet with extinction in a matter of years, as climate alarmists assert.

Biden bypassing Congress to fight climate ’emergency’
It ‘is literally and not figuratively a clear and present danger’
By Art Moore Published July 20, 2022 at 3:47pm
After failing to convince Saudi Arabia to increase oil production, President Joe Biden announced Wednesday his plans for executive action on climate change, contending he needed to act on his own because he couldn’t advance his agenda in Congress.
Speaking at the site of a Massachusetts coal-burning power plant that was shut down five years ago, Biden said the world is facing an “emergency.”
“As president, I have a responsibility to act with urgency and resolve when our nation faces clear and present danger. And that’s what climate change is about,” he said. “It is literally and not figuratively a clear and present danger.”
Biden touted a plan underway to build 100 wind turbines off the Atlantic coast, each mounted on 2,500 ton concrete platforms.
In Congress, Biden’s green agenda stalled when Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia declared to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer he won’t vote for any climate-change legislation or tax increases.
In a statement Friday, Biden vowed that if the Senate “will not move to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen our domestic clean energy industry, I will take strong executive action to meet this moment.
Biden stopped short on Wednesday of officially declaring an emergency that would enable him to use the Defense Production Act to increase production on solar panels and other renewable energy products.
The senators also called on Biden to use the White House “bully pulpit” to advance the climate agenda.
In an interview with CNN before the speech, the White House national climate adviser, Gina McCarthy, said the president will “move forward with every power available to him” to eliminate fossil fuels.

Marc Morano, a former Capitol Hill staffer who now runs the climate-change skeptic site Climate Depot, criticized Biden’s use of executive action.
“The Biden administration believes that when democracy fails to achieve its climate goals, it’s time to bypass democracy and Congress and follow the COVID model,” he said.
Morano noted that some climate activists have suggested adopting the COVID lockdowns as a model and implementing climate lockdowns to reduce emissions.
He warned that throughout history, “emergency declarations have been used and abused to crush freedom.”
“For those who loved how unelected officials ruled our lives under COVID lockdowns, prepare for the attempts to make climate lockdowns permanent,” Morano said.
One unelected leader who is influencing environmental policy is former Democratic senator John Kerry, who serves as Biden’s special envoy for climate. Fox News reported Kerry’s private jet has emitted 715,886 pounds, or 325 metric tons, of carbon dioxide since he assumed the post. Meanwhile, the typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Kerry has predicted that the U.S. will stop burning coal by 2030. Nearly 25% of the nation’s electricity comes from the fuel, and many of the largest power companies don’t plan to phase out the use of carbon-based fuels until 2050.
“The problem with folks like John Kerry and the climate hypocrites who run the green movement is that they want to use the coercive power of government,” Daniel Turner, the executive director of Power The Future, told Fox News.
The activists, he continued, “refuse to voluntarily live how they want the rest of us to be forced to live.”
“It doesn’t just make them hypocrites, it makes them, quite frankly, a threat to the rights and freedoms of people around the world,” Turner said. “When John Kerry voluntarily lives the way he wants the rest of us to be compelled to live, then we can talk about his climate goals.”

9.11.01 Untold Lessons – After 20 Years, Betrayal and Botched Policies Reveal Corporate-U.S. Politicos Polices Harm Most Americans of All Backgrounds, Facts, Figures, and Solutions – plus MH Market Updates
There are competing narratives on the alleged climate crisis, and the push for electric cars, more solar and wind created energy is explored in greater depth in the report below. The Wall Street Journal report cited in the report below clarifies some of the practical challenges of EVs, or electric vehicles vs. gas powered cars.
The often-referenced political junky site, FiveThirtyEight said on 7.22.2022 the following:
“In mid-January, the Pew Research Center asked Americans which among 18 issues should be a top priority for Congress and the president to address, and 65 percent of Democrats selected climate change, ranking it as their fourth-most-important issue.”
“For instance, even though climate change was a top priority for Democrats in the January Pew poll, it was only the 14th-most-important issue for voters overall. That’s in part because Republicans do not prioritize climate change: Just 11 percent said it should be a top priority for Congress and the president, compared with 65 percent of Democrats. In fact, climate change was the most polarizing issue Pew asked about — even more so than views on dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak.”
Restated, despite nearly daily hype about ‘the climate crisis,’ even among those who ‘believe’ in the ‘reality’ of the crisis, it only ranked as the #4 leading concern among Democratic supporters. While a few years ago, Democrats outnumbered Republicans, with the shift of over a million new registered Republicans in the U.S., the widespread skepticism or ‘denial’ that there is a man-made climate change is challenge for its adherents. If the majority of Americans don’t think it is the top issue now – given all the hype, and that is what the polling reflects – will its backers ever persuade the vast majority of the population? Pushback to the climate agenda is growing in other nations too, as the example of farmer protests in Europe reflect. Again, more facts and evidence on the issue is found in the MHProNews report linked above.
As a kind of possible kiss of death to the hype-driven belief in a manmade climate crisis is the recent announcement out of Communist China. “China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) said Thursday it approved a coal mine project worth 3.1 billion yuan ($458 million) in the country’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Reuters reported,” in a news item unpacked by Breitbart. MHProNews recently examined the drive in both India and China for more coal-fired electric generation plants. The details are below, but the bottom line is this. There is nothing that the U.S. can do solo that will outweigh what in carbon reduction the increased carbon output from nations like China and India. Are those nations and their leaders suicidal? Or do they rather see that the evidence for man-made climate change is so doubted that they do not think there is the kind of risk that climate activists and their backers claim? These are serious questions that impact manufactured housing professionals and all others, because energy demand touches every American.
Next to claims of a climate crisis are the increasingly dubious claims that were made about the severity of COVID19 and the efficacy of the vaccinations that claimed to ‘stop the spread’ of COVID and its variants. That the virus is real is not disputed. The question is, has the response to the virus been the correct one? The report below from the WND NewsCenter to MHProNews helps address those concerns as seen through the lens of statements made by candidate Joe Biden and now claimed President Biden.
Biden promised 1 year ago today shots would prevent COVID
‘You’re OK, you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations’
By Art Moore Published July 21, 2022 at 2:21pm
It was one year ago today when President Biden promised Americans that if they got vaccinated they would not contract COVID-19.
On Thursday, after four COVID-19 shots, the White House announced that the president had tested positive for the disease and was experiencing mild symptoms while isolating from his staff.
Nevertheless, Biden said Wednesday in response to a reporter’s question that his plan to address a rise in COVID-19 cases was that Americans should be “getting vaccinated.”
The administration finally, reluctantly, has acknowledged the shots don’t stop infection or transmission but continues to insist they prevent severe illness, hospitalization and death.
Biden’s top coronavirus adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci – who tested positive for COVID-19 last month after being quadruple vaccinated – acknowledged in a recent interview that the COVID vaccines “don’t protect overly well” from infection. But he maintained they still have virtue.
“One of the things that’s clear from the data [is] that even though vaccines – because of the high degree of transmissibility of this virus – don’t protect overly well, as it were, against infection, they protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalization and death,” Fauci said.
However, an analysis of Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine trials found the mRNA shots are more likely to land a recipient in the hospital than to provide protection from a severe adverse event. The findings were similar to those of a recent pre-print analysis that found “no evidence of a reduction in overall mortality in the mRNA vaccine trials.” And a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that two doses of the mRNA vaccines increased the risk of COVID-19 infection during the omicron wave.
Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the technology platform behind the mRNA vaccines and a leading critic of the COVID-19 shots, summarized Thursday on Gettr what current scientific research and real world data indicate.
“The highly inoculated are the ones at most risk for clinical COVID, hospitalization and death with these escape mutant variants, and they are the ones breeding the next round of escape mutants,” he wrote.
Dr. Harvey Risch, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, said in EpochTV interview published Wednesday that the antibodies triggered by COVID-19 vaccines are interfering with people’s immune systems as newer virus variants emerge.
The White House said Biden is being treated with the antiviral drug Paxlovid, which is produced by Pfizer. Fauci said he experienced a rebound of COVID symptoms after he was treated with the drug. In fact, Pfizer’s own trial data showed the drug may not be effective for people who have received a COVID vaccine.
The Pfizer Paxlovid trial was stopped, pointed out Malone, due to a lack of efficacy in standard risk patients. Lab studies, he further noted, show coronavirus has been able to evade the drug in multiple ways.
Last fall, Risch was among scientists and physicians who said in Senate testimony that thousands of lives could have been saved if treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine had not been suppressed.

Biden, in an effort to justify his vaccine mandates and press more people to get the shots, warned last December of “a winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated.” And he scolded the COVID vaccine skeptics by repeatedly declaring the nation is experiencing a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
Dr. Peter McCullough, a prominent cardiologist, epidemiologist and critic of the COVID vaccines, wondered Thursday how Biden will walk back that statement.
Really many are concerned now about his physical health being breakthrough quadrupled with the acute illness, but how does one walk back this “pandemic of the unjected” comment. Never was a correct statement. Will keep it for the White House domestic propaganda files. pic.twitter.com/Wfi5ukeSsp

Spencer Brown, managing editor of Townhall.com, spotlighted President Biden’s tweet Thursday assuring American’s he’s “doing great” and “keeping busy.”
“I’m old enough to remember when official photos of Trump working at Walter Reed when he had COVID were called ‘propaganda’ by the mainstream media,” Brown wrote.

In his interview July 12 with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Fauci said that “even though [vaccination] didn’t protect me against infection, I feel confident that it made a major role in protecting me from progressing to severe disease.”
“And that’s very likely why I had a relatively mild course. So my message to people who seem confused because people who are vaccinated get infected – the answer is if you weren’t vaccinated, the likelihood [is] you would have had [a] more severe course than you did have when you were vaccinated.”
However the consensus among physicians and scientists has been that, regardless of vaccination status, the current BA.4 and BA.5 omicron subvariants, while very contagious, present with mild symptoms in most people.
‘I will shut down the virus’
On the Powerline blog, John Hinderaker recalled that during a campaign debate, Biden blamed then-President Trump for every American COVID death, saying that anyone “who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America.”
At the time, the U.S. had recorded 220,000 COVID deaths.
Biden also campaigned on promises to stop the pandemic, Hinderaker noted, saying “I will shut down the virus” and “I will beat this virus.”
“Since Biden became president, more than 750,000 Americans have died from (or with) covid, per the CDC,” he wrote. “If you take Biden’s election rhetoric seriously, he bears responsibility for those 750,000 deaths. And maybe we should take it seriously, because without covid and the ensuing panic, and without Biden’s wild covid claims and promises, he would not have been elected president.”

‘Stop extending the national emergency’
Phil Kerpen, president of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, tweeted: “If a medically frail 80 year-old can work all day with COVID, he should stop extending the national emergency.”
The federal public health emergency was set to expired in mid-July but was extended for another month. The declaration allows for the granting of emergency authorizations of drugs and vaccines and the issuance of special benefits such as health coverage through Medicaid.
In May, more than 17,000 physicians and medical scientists from around the world signed a declaration calling on nations to lift health emergency declarations, restore scientific integrity and address “crimes against humanity.”
Among the signatories is Dr. Malone, who argues that the concerns raised in the declaration go beyond COVID-19, threatening constitutional rights.
The declaration asserts a “corrupt alliance” of pharmaceutical, insurance and health care institutions continues “to advance unscientific claims by censoring data, and intimidating and firing doctors and scientists for simply publishing actual clinical results or treating their patients with proven, life-saving medicine.”
See the White House press briefing Thursday on Biden’s COVID-19 diagnosis:
Fauci: Vaccines ‘virtually 100% efficacious’
At the launch of the vaccines, Fauci, other health officials, pharmaceutical companies and media declared the coronavirus shots to be virtually 100% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID-19 then gradually lowered their estimations to as low as 20% after only six months.
Fauci is seen in a media interview touting the vaccines as “virtually 100% efficacious” and stating in congressional testimony that the “real world effectiveness is even more impressive than the results of the clinical trial.”
Moderna boasted its vaccine was 100% effective in teenagers. Pfizer said its vaccine was 100% effective in preventing COVID infections. In other statements, the shots were declared to provide 100% protection against severe disease, hospitalization and death.
However, by October 2021, a study of real world data showed Pfizer’s COVID vaccine was only 20% effective against infection after six months.
A CNN headline one year earlier, before the vaccines were launched, said “Past vaccine disasters show why rushing coronavirus vaccine now would be ‘colossally stupid.”

The facts, evidence, and insights from the above were presaged by months of reports on these topics by MHProNews/MHLivingNews. For example, in 2020, MHProNews highlighted the organized pushback by the medical and healthcare community under the banner of the Great Barrington Declaration, which took issue with the public policies in the U.S. or other nations that resorted to lockdowns and other drastic measures in response to COVID19.
Some years ago, MHProNews highlighted this statement by now former President Obama. Obama candidly admitted that there were two world views, two views of what ‘reality’ amounted to.
While Fox News has since moved more toward the left (but is still considered by many to be a more ‘conservative’ news source), Mr. Obama’s point is quite apt. Obviously, he wants people to believe the leftist-Democratic narrative. But his own choices belie his support for issues like the reality – or lack of it – in so-called man-made climate change. If the seas and oceans are rising, why does he have two ocean front properties?
When even the segment of the population that votes Democratic don’t think climate change is the top issue, those who push that Democratic policy narrative in business, media, big tech, and other institutions have a problem. When entire nations – think China and India – are moving in the opposite direction, and advocates like ex-President Obama and his wife Michelle are living as if there are no serious risks from the claimed rising oceans, is the time approaching when those claims are more widely viewed as mere propaganda?
The evidence that propaganda has driven much of the political agenda in the U.S. is mounting. The reason that big tech and others have tried to censor free speech is because it is the only way to keep the illusion going. An important piece of evidence for that is Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s laptop story was widely suppressed as ‘disinformation’ in the run-up to the 2020 election. But more recently, left-leaning news outlets have had to walk back their feigned skepticism about Hunter’s laptop and its shocking contents. Several right-leaning pundits have referred to the Bidens as “the Biden crime family” and point to deals by Hunter and his colleagues in Russia, Ukraine, and China as part of the evidence. Once more, MHProNews examined the evidence in near real time and provided reports like the one below in September of 2020 that proved to stand the test of time. What major media outlets have since had to walk back, by examining the evidence, MHProNews reported far more accurately months or years before others in media.
News is supposed to inform, but propagandists learned years ago in places like National Socialist (Nazi) Germany, Soviet Russia and Communist China that manipulating the ‘news’ can manipulate the population. That troubling reality is not entirely new. President Abraham Lincoln dealt with propaganda and sometimes bold lies in his era too. Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, noted that bold lies could hold sway for a time. The goal of bold liars has long been the same. It is money and power. Who says? In our own time, Warren Buffett and his longtime vice chairman Charlie Munger, J.D.

The truth of a subject is not always immediately evident. Manufactured housing pros should know that better than most, facts emerging in recent years have proven what industry proponents have touted for decades despite pushback. In a time of big, bold lies that are all too common, it takes effort to sift out what is fact from fables or fantasies that happen to benefit some special interest.
