Senate Hearings, “High Tech Lynching” plus MH Market Updates

CNNmoney9.4.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere are those who believe that the politics and media bias have never been nastier than it is now.  While there is a case to be made, it would be inaccurate to presume that the tactics visible today have not been previously employed. In fact, they’ve been used to various degrees for decades. This evening, we’ll sneak a peak at the highly charged hearings in the Senate, which could shape the business and legal environment for years to come.  That will be our focus for tonight.


If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


The Kavanaugh Hearings, Legal and Business Certainty

Manufactured home industry attorneys Kurt Kelley and Mark Weiss are among those quoted in the report below, as to why legal certainty helps foster a better business environment.

“Fear Mongering,” and Manufactured Housing Advancement

When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, he was determined not to get “Borked.” 

So, when the cheap shots came Thomas’ way during his Senate confirmation hearings, here is how he handled them.

That’s classic, “high tech lynching” quote from now-Justice Clarence Thomas is a wise insight that applies to much of what is taking place in Washington, and around the country, aimed at the Trump Administration.

To give readers a sense of how the hearing began today, here are two videos from generally left-of-center media. While there is some overlap, each highlights different protests and events.  Dozens of interruptions of the GOP hearing chair occurred, per media reports, most by his fellow U.S. Senators.

It is expected that Judge Brett Kavanaugh will win by a narrow vote, that will largely follow party lines.

Time will tell.
