Sun Communities CEO Shiffman Exposed Biden Tax Scheme Benefits Consolidators – Dem Biden Speech, Senator Tim Scott GOP Response – Industry Lemons or Lemonade – News Analysis


Each aspect of the headline will be addressed in this lemons or lemonade examination of the decades of mendacious hypocrisy used by America’s so-called corporate and political elites, much of which are on full display this week. For decades, American working class, middle class, retirees, independent smaller business owners – including people from all backgrounds and beliefs – have swallowed the bitter dregs of programs and policies that postured one thing but delivered another. Thanks to voices across the left-right divide, that problematic pattern is now out in the open. It is on full public exhibit, thanks in part to the revealing deeds of the billionaire and big corporate-backed Civic Alliance and their Biden-Harris led political front team. Ironically, it is Sun Communities Inc (SUI) Chairman and CEO Gary Shiffman who perhaps unwittingly exposed how a key element of the White House Resident Biden tax hikes plan benefits consolidators, that includes Shiffman’s own virtue-signaling ESG embracing firm.




Here is a key pull quote from Shiffman’s recent Sun Q1 2021 earning’s call. More on that later below.

I think that we’re seeing a little bit more outreach than we even expected with some of the discussion about change in capital gains and things like that moving forward by the current [Biden] administration, with obviously uncertainty as to where that’s going.”

~ Gary A. Shiffman — Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), emphasis added by MHProNews. Apr 27, 2021, Q1 2021 Earnings Call, available on Motley Fool and MHProNewsPut differently, Shiffman has revealed how fear of higher taxes and more regulations are being used as a barrier of persistence that are driving more selling by independents, which benefits consolidators.

Let’s note this insightful pull quote from the Biden-Harris Campaign website: “In Washington, the ability to schedule a meeting with an elected official or his or her staff is a form of currency.” That’s demonstrably true. Biden-Harris pledged a new era of transparency and accountability. It begins with this guarantee. Not a promise or pledge, but a guarantee.

We the people.” Those words changed everything. Power rested in the people, not the government. Freedom to think, to speak, to act, to criticize your government, all protected. We became the model for the world. […] Our Constitution doesn’t begin with the phrase, “We the Democrats” or “We the Republicans.” And it certainly doesn’t begin with the phrase, “We the Donors.

– Joe Biden, 2020 presidential campaign kickoff, May 18, 2019

But as MHProNews previously reported, White House Resident Biden began delivering favors to his political allies, backers, and donors literally on his first day in office.

Those favors included an obvious day one gift to the Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway conglomerates various tentacles can be fed or deployed as desired.



Before digging into more specifics on affordable manufactured housing impacts and implications, let’s pivot to several aspects of the Biden address to a deliberately thinned out gathering in the Capitol Building last night and Senator Tim Scott’s (SC-R) response. These will be laced and followed with pull quotes that illustrate and highlight what this means for our industry’s savvy and freedom-loving professionals of whatever party, belief or background. Because the bold, big lie, mendacious hypocrisy is so stunning it simply begs for being highlighted in this factual, evidence-based fashion.


President John F. “Jack” Kennedy was a Democrat, but his policies were dramatically different on several scores than White House Resident Joseph “Joe” Biden.
More government borrowing to pay for a supposedly ‘free’ program means a bigger part of the budget will go to those who lend money to the government. It benefits lenders, which are often the banking, capital, and international money sources.


The Sun CEO Shiffman insight reveals that the claim that only the rich will pay comes into focus as this list of supposedly ‘free stuff’ is made by Biden. Indeed, similar claims were made during the Obama-Biden ere regarding healthcare. They proved to be false promise. Yet, conservative or libertarian thinkers said in advance that it would prove to be false. The quote below by Thomas Sowell shows one of several reasons why these faux promises can not work. It is simple math or economics 101. There is no free lunch. Someone always pays. That someone is routinely the middle class and smaller businesses.


Just as the health care promises of Obama-Biden proved to be false, so too the promise of free college education – or free anything else – will prove to be false. Someone always pays.


The laundry list of Biden-Harris promises are a parallel to what occurred with ObamaCare.  Just listen to what ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber explained why it was a lie from the start. Gruber was defending the lie, saying it was necessary to get the bill passed into law.



Among the [already broken] promises from the Biden-Harris campaign website was the following items. These are not necessarily in the sequence displayed in their document, which can be accessed originally posted at this link here.



  • Reduce the corrupting influence of money in politics and make it easier for candidates of all backgrounds to run for office;
  • Return integrity to the U.S. Department of Justice and other Executive Branch decision-making;
  • Restore ethics in government;
  • Rein in Executive Branch financial conflicts of interest; and
  • Hold the lobbied and lobbyists to a higher standard of accountability.


Part of how they pledged to make this happen? “…the Commission on Federal Ethics (CFE) will be tasked with establishing an, a new one-stop destination for Americans interested in learning about the elected and appointed officials who serve them, and those who seek to influence that service.”


100 days in, how is that “guarantee” to the American people going? This screen capture below by MHProNews this morning tells the tale at a glance.

Try this test yourself. Go to and see for yourself.






What CNN’s Jim Acosta and “lunch bucket Joe” who has multiple mansions, somehow magically ‘earned’ while in public office, is not mentioning is how leftist billionaires like Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and George Soros have been documented to have funded literal insurrection in America for much of the last year, following the tragic death of George Floyd.





The Washington Post is a left-leaning media source, clearly in the Biden camp. Which makes their spotlighting of Biden’s real estate holdings all the more telling.
Biden has repeatedly touted the lack of ethical scandals during the Obama-Biden years. This is arguably the Big Lie and the demonstrable value to ruthless politicos repeating a lie over and over without serious scrutiny by much of the mainstream media. Even the Brennan Center, pro-Obama-Biden, admits there were scandals in that administration and several failures to keep their pledges of transparency and ethics

Nor does CNN mention that the Capitol riot insurrection narrative is falling apart. Who says? Liberal attorney-turned-journalist and openly homosexual Glenn Greenwald. 



Put differently, the blinding blizzard of lies and faux promises that are flowing from Joe Biden and the Biden-Harris ‘led’ team reveal themselves to be little more than sock puppets for corporate interests. Who says? In several cases, those claims and concerns come from Democrats. The examples below make the point.


These plans will routinely benefit the billionaires and the corporate interests behind the Civic Alliance nonprofit and other groups that big business, big media, and big tech deploy along in concert with Iron Triangle or ‘Deep State’ allies.

For those who may not know, Naomi Wolf opposed Bush-Cheney deception and threats, and is now blowing the whistle against Biden-Harris threats to liberty.

Voices on the left and right are blowing the whistle on the increasingly open efforts to subvert the rights of Americans by making promises that history repeatedly shows are not kept, nor could they be kept.



This video was GOP Senator Tim Scott (SC-R) response to the Biden address. Scott was a key figure in the passage of the Trump-tax cuts, Opportunity Zones, and criminal justice reform. Note, several of the tweets that follow the video below were identified by Breitbart. 





The Trump Shadow over Biden-Harris’ D.C…

The Trump team has been working for weeks on putting into place their counteroffensive against what some have called an American coup.

There is no guarantee that President Donald J. Trump will run again. Some were so impressed with Tim Scott’s reply to Biden’s presentation that they are talking about a Gov Ron DeSantis and Scott ticket for the White House by the GOP in 2024. Some of this may appear at first blush to be partisan. But upon closer examination, this is a battle between the powerful vs. the rest of society. While the powerful have demonstrably coopted much of the Democratic Party in the past few decades, they also held sway over numbers of Republicans too. It was the Trump tornado that challenged the Washington, D.C. and broader American status quo.  Only 100 days into a Biden-Harris regime, and all of the concerns raised by MHProNews and MHLivingNews during the 2020 campaign and aftermath are now obvious and in the open.  The evidence is clear. These are moat-building tools for oligarchs and plutocrats who are trying to turn American into a new form of feudalism.

What Shiffman, perhaps innocently, did was reveal once more what Carol Roth and other thinkers long ago made plain. High taxes, high regulations, these are barriers that benefit the rich and powerful.  What these patterns are revealing is highlighted in our industry in how the FHFA has dodged on a relatively simple ethical and disclosure question. If they think they can dodge disclosure on something important – but relatively easy to fix – why should rationale people think that others in the Biden regime behave differently?

No objective person believes that President Trump was a paragon of perfection or an icon of saintly virtue. But he was demonstrably better for the working and middle class than Obama-Biden or now Biden-Harris are proving to be. The facts do not lie.

CNN is not a pro-Trump media outlet, but using federal data, this graphic from their news company reflects the upward trend of income following President Trump’s enactment of the tax cuts and jobs act. It is worth noting that Democratic President John F. Kennedy Jr. did similarly. Income and productivity also rose. During the Reagan Administration, former Democrat turned Republican Ronald Reagan cut taxes with a similar outcome as Presidents Kennedy and Trump. Facts matter.
During both Democratic and Republican administrations, despite claims by both that they desire to see more home ownership, the overall rate in the U.S. is lower today than in 2000. This is but one of several possible examples of why failure to implement the 2000 Reform law matters.





Once the basic principles are understood of how people and the system are being manipulated, then clarity can replace the blinding propaganda that so many have been warning about that is bringing a ruling class to power in America. The lemons that are being found in every direction can be turned into lemonade. But it will take understanding and then a prudent, organized pushback by people of good will from many backgrounds to make that happen.





There are voices from both sides of the left-right divide that have for years made similar points.
