Precipice – Reveals, Exposes American ‘Leech Class’ – Corp CEO Aims to Protect American Dream from Leeches in Key Roles – Eye Opener for Biz, Policy Leaders, More; plus MHVille Stocks, REITs Updates


“We know who the enemy [i.e.: the leeches] is; let us engage in public discourse so that good prevails over evil.” “Indeed, if we don’t, America will soon go over the precipice – and into the history books, joining many other once-great civilizations.” “Precipice is an eye-opening read for business leaders, policymakers, and anyone who cherishes the liberties that define America.” So said Matthew Brouillette via RealClearWire and ZeroHedge. Brouillette is the president & CEO at Commonwealth Partners Chamber of Entrepreneurs, Inc., an independent, nonpartisan, 501(c)(6) membership organization dedicated to improving the economic environment and educational opportunities in Pennsylvania. Much of what Brouillette writes might sound similar to topics and themes raised on MHProNews, but are packaged under engaging nomenclature such as the “leech class.” Following his article about a new book will be the second segment of today’s report providing additional information with more MHProNews analysis and commentary.

Pulling America Back from the Precipice

By Matthew Brouillette
January 04, 2023

It’s not often than a CEO of a large, publicly traded company speaks bluntly in public about politics and political power. So, both “surprising” and “refreshing” describe energy executive Nick Deiuliis’s new book, Precipice: The Left’s Campaign to Destroy America (Republic Book Publishers).

Deiuliis, a chemical engineer and attorney by training, is director and chief executive officer of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based CNX Resources Corporation, one of the largest natural gas exploration, development, and production companies.

In addition to penning Precipice, Deiuliis is a prolific writer on topics ranging from the American Civil War to professional sports to the Federal Reserve to music. When he’s not writing, he hosts “The Far Middle,” a weekly podcast that tackles topics including energy, business, politics, culture, sports, and more.

In short, Deiuliis does not fit the stereotype of the CEO of a publicly traded company.

As an energy leader, Deiuliis is an unapologetic advocate for his industry, and he makes a strong case that abundant and affordable energy is indispensable for developing and prosperous civilizations.

But his book’s subtitle – “The Left’s Campaign to Destroy America” – best captures Precipice’s focus, which extends far beyond the energy industry. Deiuliis identifies four categories of members of modern society: “Creators,” “Enablers,” “Servers,” and “Leeches.”

Creators generate the wealth that leads to the civilization’s success. These include the scientists, surgeons, engineers, techies, manufacturers, constructors, and members of the building trades, who provide the foundation for any modern society.

Enablers support the Creators. They are the accountants, nurses, data clerks, financiers, bus drivers, and clerical workers. Their professions increase Creators’ efficiency.

Servers make up the largest societal member group and include those who improve the quality of life for individuals and increase efficiency for everyone – from the waitress in a restaurant to the mechanic who fixes your car to the landscaper who mows your lawn. Servers do the jobs you might be able to do yourself but are willing to pay someone else to do in order to free yourself up for other things.

Finally, Leeches, as their name suggests, live off the productivity of a host – with the hosts in this case being the members of the other three groups.

These four groups are not exactly the lens through which most Americans observe their society, but perhaps they should be. Deiuliis offers a unique and invaluable framework for understanding the basis of economic activity in America today.

Not surprisingly, while Deiuliis celebrates the first three member groups, he has disdain for the fourth category, the Leech. While the first three groups “built and fuel a culture of making” and make the world go round, the Leech “stands in stark contrast to and in direct conflict” with the first three and undermines the American Dream.

The Leech class is deeply embedded across multiple industries – members of the plaintiffs’ bar, who use the law against social flourishing; public sector unions (particularly teachers’ unions) that use tax dollars to thwart the public interest; members of the media, who act as a public relations arm for government, and members of academia, who formulate many of the premises on which leech-ism depends. But Deiuliis argues that the most troubling leeches are found in government bureaucracies. While he recognizes the need for rules and regulations, he argues that the government Leech has gone far beyond simply serving and protecting the public; he has crossed the line into making the lives of everyone more difficult.

The Leech class, Deiuliis writes, is destroying America—strategically.

Deiuliis also makes the case that our modern economy rests on four pillars: energy, finance, healthcare, and technology. Leeches target these pillars with the primary objective of controlling them, a process Deiuliis goes into great detail to explain. Creators, Enablers, and Servers suffer the negative consequences of these attacks.

Precipice is admittedly a depressing reality check on the state of America – but it is much needed. As President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Creators, Enablers, and Servers have made America the freest, most prosperous nation in history. The Leeches threaten that freedom and prosperity. Deiuliis’s conclusion is prescient: “We know who the enemy is; let us engage in public discourse so that good prevails over evil.” Indeed, if we don’t, America will soon go over the precipice – and into the history books, joining many other once-great civilizations.

Precipice is an eye-opening read for business leaders, policymakers, and anyone who cherishes the liberties that define America. ##


Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

Over 1½ years ago (May 11, 2021) this writer in a 500-word op-ed for WND said in part that: “Modern robber barons are dominating information and capital.” That pithy op-ed also had these pull quotes:

“The New York Times quoted Warren Buffett: “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

Buffett’s “class” profited wildly in the 2008 and 2020 economic upheavals. How? CNBC quoted billionaire Bill Gates: “I didn’t even want to meet Warren because I thought, ‘Hey this guy buys and sells things, and so he found imperfections in terms of markets, that’s not value added to society, that’s a zero-sum game that is almost parasitic.'”

The CDC defines parasitic: “A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host organism and gets its food from or at the expense of its host.” Compare that to the use of the term “leech” cited Brouillette in the book by Deiuliis. Per Oxford Languages, the second meaning for leech is “a person [organization or group] who extorts profit from or sponges on others.”


While the terminology is different, the meaning of the term leech or parasite are quite similar. Perhaps more important, the way that Brouillette summarizes Deiuliis’ book indicates a similar reading of what’s hobbling America.

As Brouillette stated: “Deiuliis’s conclusion is prescient: “We know who the enemy is; let us engage in public discourse so that good prevails over evil.” Indeed, if we don’t, America will soon go over the precipice – and into the history books, joining many other once-great civilizations.”

There are several names used by researchers, observers, and media for what Deiuliis labeled as the American “leech class.”

  • Oligarchs.
  • The donor class.
  • Modern Robber Barons.
  • Captains of industry.
  • Wealthy and powerful.
  • The elites.
  • The Establishment.
  • The 1 percent.

And the list could go on. It should quickly be pointed out that some are wealthy in more honest ways while others have grown wealth7 by ‘rigging the system’ or manipulating the ‘rigged system’ in their own favor. The leeches are those who are more interested in blood (money) sucking than creating new business units that are growing the economy in a more traditional and constitutionally minded ‘free market’ fashion.

That said, it is foolish to ignore the reality of the Establishment’s modern gilded age where “the leech class” has insulated themselves from the travails of the working class, retirees, and poor.   Those who are more economically fragile may be so for a range of reasons that in several instances can be tied to the ‘rigged system.’  The millions in the lower financial echelons of American society are the breeding ground for the roughly 600,000 homeless in the U.S.  A fascinating, although troubling, data point is that despite record spending under the Biden regime, HUD recently admitted that homelessness ticked upFor those who think that more funding will fix a problem, the HUD homelessness data demonstrates otherwise.

More fresh examples that big government programs often fail to address the underlying issues they promise to cure – including in the affordability crisis and the lack of sufficient homes in the U.S. housing market – are the following. Despite record spending and the hype about the Biden Housing Plan, which often mentioned manufactured housing, largely pro-Biden CNN reported that the data indicates that the number of first-time buyers has tumbled to an ‘all time low.’  One outcome is promised by politicos and those who put and keep them in power, but when the facts are examined, the opposite is all too often what is occurring.



A different report than the one linked above essentially underscored that sobering reality that first time buyers have plummeted. By reporting that some 9 million young adults have moved back in with their moms and dads in 2022 alone, it should be clear that big talk and actual delivery are often two different things.


Fears of Future – MILLIONS of Millennials Move Back in 2022 with Parents-Facts, Top Reasons, and Possible Silver Lining for Manufactured Housing Pros, Investors; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update

Why does such apparent paltering occur?  The quote below sheds light on that, and it often goes back to the notion of “the leech class.”



These facts in a fascinating fashion underscore a point made by the Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) Tom Hardiman, who flatly called out elements of the Biden-Democratic agenda as “political payoffs.” Those trillions of dollars are clearly ending up in the pockets of organizations and companies that often benefit the Democratic party and its “donor class.” As MHProNews documented through a simple Google search, Democrats have in recently years been largely coopted by the nation’s wealthy. Note that Google search reveals mainstream sources that make the point of that search phrase.

There are RINOs just as there are DINOs. The billionaire class and their corporate interests wield enormous influence over U.S. politics. Something similar is often true in other nations too. Numbers have said for years that there is a two-tiered justice system in America, citizens must ponder the meaning of the Trump property raid by the FBI as a possible example of an excessive show of force that have been displayed against other Trump supporters in recent years, often with little or no result in terms of convictions for a serious crime.

What that means is that the people that are often described as the purported beneficiaries of various policies and programs – i.e.: the poor, lower middle class, minorities, retirees of modest means, etc. – are often more window dressing than actual ‘winners.’

The elites routinely got wealthier during COVID19. While those same uber wealthy have been shedding wealth at a brisk pace as stocks have largely dropped in value 2022, one must not forget that for those who have sizable cash reserves – i.e.: think Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway – this drop in values means there are more ‘bargains.’ A temporary hit on their net worth could be followed by a big surge in their wealth once markets magically recover.

That economic recovery could occur by simply returning to more sane economic policies. But the point is that by creating a crisis opportunities arise. It is still the deep pocketed “leech class” that is waging “class warfare” and “winning” that can glom onto bargains among equities or other businesses during periods of depressed valuations. Grasping that patterns through that prism will be useful to those who are trying to make sense of why certain outcomes seem to contradict the boldly proclaimed promises by politicos who are often in the pockets of the donor class and their respective allies in that process.

While such broad-brush strokes paint a useful picture, of course, it must be noted that there are other consequential details.

That said, for decades, the influence (and/or ownership) of that “leech class” over the assets of America has increased. At its core, this isn’t a left or right issue. It is a reality check that merits the attention of millions of Americans.

This pattern isn’t new. As Students of History noted the following.

QuoteMarksLeftSideGilded Age Robber Barons

During the Gilded Age, a number of businessmen made large sums of money by putting themselves in control of whole industries, such as railroading, banking, oil, and others. The practice of being the only person who controls a particular industry is known as having a monopoly over that industry. Four men in particular made names – and, subsequently, much money – for themselves during this time: JP Morgan, Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, and Andrew Carnegie. …”


While the names of those robber barons have changed since that era, and there are more industries and communications avenues now than then, something similar is apparently occurring.

What can be done?

The answers are what has been previously noted in that May 2021 WND op-ed, in which this author for MHProNews said the following. This program could perhaps bring together 65 percent of the nation’s voters including members of the political left, center, and right. Because it doesn’t require new laws, even a smaller but vocal group could accomplish.

QuoteMarksLeftSideWhen carefully examined, these oligarchs and their businesses employ “parasitic” “moat” and “sabotage monopoly” methods. They create a slow-motion monopoly of various markets. Experts like James Schmitz say monopolies “inflict great harm on low- and middle-income Americans.”

The solution? Enforce existing laws. Break these pernicious giants up. They cause social, economic, and moral harm. Once broken up, watch the economy and America soar.”

Those two paragraphs summarize/outline the vexing reality and a workable solution. Are there more things that could and should be done? Of course. But breaking up the modern monopolies is as important now as it was over a century ago when antitrust advocates in that era pressed for similar policies.

In manufactured housing, the alarm over the ongoing press for consolidation – i.e. a form of monopolization – has been sounded by MHProNews, MHLivingNews, and by outsiders looking in such as Samuel “Sam” Strommen and James A. “Jim” Schmitz Jr.  Doug Ryan at Prosperity Now flatly called what has occurred in manufactured housing as a monopolization of the industry. Kevin Clayton totally embraced in a video interview the “moat” principles that Warren Buffett preaches as a way of thwarting competition.

Applying the notions that Brouillette and Deiuliis described as problems in America caused by the “leech class” are sucking the life blood out of manufactured housing’s vitality.  Restated, what Brouillette and Deiuliis have described as “the leech class” could easily be applied to what has occurred in manufactured housing in the 21st century.
