Tense Flag Day 2020, plus Sunday Weekly Headlines Review 6.7 to 6.14.2020



And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

– penned by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812,
the “Star-Spangled Banner” or the
national anthem of the United States of America.


E pluribus unum” – Latin for “Out of many, one” – is a traditional motto of the United States, per Wikipedia. In the wake of the most recent tragedy in Atlanta involving a black man and a cop – along with other troubling tensions – that may seem like a distant fantasy to many.

First, let’s look at Flag Day, then lets look at some relevant facts and evidence.


Flag Day commemorates, “In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress,” states Wikipedia.

The White House issued this statement on June 12, 2020. It is required by law, with respect to the annual Flag Day and Flag Week Proclamation.




Proclamation on Flag Day and National Flag Week, 2020

QuoteMarkManufacturedHomeLivingNewsOn Flag Day and throughout National Flag Week, we pay tribute to the American flag, the most recognizable symbol of the principles for which our Republic stands.  For more than 200 years, the Stars and Stripes has represented liberty, justice, and the rule of law.  Recently, as our Nation has come together to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, our flag has been a reminder of the courage, tenacity, and loyalty that define the indomitable American spirit.

Our great flag causes us to reflect humbly on the immeasurable price that has been paid to keep it “so gallantly streaming.”  Throughout our Nation’s history, proud patriots have nobly answered the call of duty when our country needed them most.  The Star Spangled Banner serves as an everlasting remembrance of the sacrifices heroes of every generation have made in conflicts from the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Our flag ensures that we never forget the incredible sacrifices our men and women in uniform have made to defend our liberty and way of life.

This year, Old Glory has waved over millions of brave Americans fighting the invisible enemy, often at risk to their personal health and wellbeing.  Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare professionals have treated and cared for those sickened by the virus, and countless American patriots have provided critical goods and services to their fellow citizens in these uncertain times.  These dedicated individuals have risen to the challenge, meeting the virus on the frontlines with the same conviction and unwavering determination that has empowered our Nation to overcome previous trials.  Just as we prevailed in those struggles, we will emerge victorious against this new enemy and again raise our flag in triumph.

The American flag represents the unity of our country and its people.  No matter what may divide us, Old Glory should be revered and cherished, as a symbol of all that makes America the greatest country in the world.  As we honor our beautiful flag on this day and throughout this week, let us vow never to forget the tremendous sacrifices made by patriots from generation to generation to ensure that the red, white, and blue continues to fly high and free.  Today, and every day, I am proud to join my fellow Americans in standing tall and saluting our great American flag.

To commemorate the adoption of our flag, the Congress, by joint resolution approved August 3, 1949, as amended (63 Stat. 492), designated June 14 of each year as “Flag Day” and requested that the President issue an annual proclamation calling for its observance and for the display of the flag of the United States on all Federal Government buildings.  The Congress requested, by joint resolution approved June 9, 1966, as amended (80 Stat. 194), that the President issue annually a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as “National Flag Week” and calling on all citizens of the United States to display the flag during that week.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim June 14, 2020, as Flag Day, and the week starting June 14, 2020, as National Flag Week.  I direct the appropriate officials to display the flag on all Federal Government buildings during this week, and I urge all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by displaying the flag.  I encourage the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twelfth day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.



Flag Day is also President Trump’s 74th birthday. It happens to coincide with this writer’s birthday too, although the Chief a Executive has a big head start in age seniority, not to mention more Twitter followers and more assets by a country mile. Congratulations, Mr. President,  Happy Birthday, prayers and best wishes during this difficult time in American history. You need all the prayers and wisdom a person in your role can get.

The week that passed was jammed with well-read reports on timely topics. But let’s first mention the one from June 5th linked below, because it is setting a the record for readership levels this month. There have been well over 500,000 hits on this one article in less than 9 days.

Webalizer reported the following on just one of a dozen cPanels, Generated 13-Jun-2020 07:09 CDT.

Hits                                   web address or URL

More on the timely report above after the headlines below, but let’s mention that in an era of spin and misdirection it speaks volumes. In an modest-sized industry that Cavco, citing the Manufactured Housing Institute, says has about 75,000 full time employees pre-COVID19, to have over 500,000 hits on a single article in just days is a an obvious indication that newcomers and long-term readers of MHProNews alike thirst for evidence and reason-based reports.

Note too that each reader here normally reads several articles per visit. People want to KNOW.

So, there is always more here. In no specific order of importance or in ranking of readership levels, but all well read are the following.

  • CHAZ – Few Dare Call it Conspiracy or Revolution – Seattle’s “Police Free” “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”
  • The Big Lie
  • Democrats Leaked Secret Memo on Black Lives Matter
  • Cavco
  • Skyline Champion
  • Nobility Homes
  • The Carlyle Group
  • Danny Ghorbani’s latest Q/A on the FHFA
  • ABC News Expose on Black Lives Matter

Those too are topics that are drawing professionals and readership from coast-to-coast, in Canada, and beyond.

Barring the unforeseen, an exclusive with and about one of the industry’s largest firms is planned for tomorrow. But let’s mention a few other mostly recent reports that are attracting strong followings.

By tackling tough topics with candor, third-party reporting evidence reflects that readership surges.

Credibility comes from many things. Among them is accurate evidence-based reports and analysis that cites sources across the left-right divide so that their validity can be prudently assessed and relied upon. In an era where corporate media often has agendas, this separating the wheat from the chaff method that bears good fruit.

Understanding media bias is useful to sifting through possibly hidden agendas.

The Latest Tragedies…

Let’s be clear. Does our nation have dark points in our history? Absolutely. But so does every other nation. What should not happen is the weaponization of history, taking facts out of context so that they lose their meaning. Or worse, to twist history in a way that angers people of all backgrounds that may not have been properly grounded in historic facts and realities.

Every continent on earth has had slavery for centuries, with the exception perhaps of icy Antarctica which only has a relatively few scientists in the modern era. Some nations ended slavery before America, but they also existed before the first colonies in what become the U.S. too. Here is evidence.

From WikiCommons – Click the image to see it full size.

As important as the above is the reality that while slavery is technically illegal world-wide, slaves and human trafficking still exists. The chart below is from the Obama Administration era. It should be stressed that these stunning modern issues – not history long past – have crossed Democratic and Republican administrations. The tragedies that went with slavery, serfdom and involuntary servitude are what most people throughout history experienced.



Much of human history can be viewed as the story of one group, nation, or alliance trying to manipulate or oppress others. It is often the richer and better connected that try to oppress or control the masses. Who says? How about big-time Democratic backer Warren Buffett?

When you see a photo like this, the reason that the report linked here has had over 500,000 hits in 9 days becomes clearer. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/dark-money-billionaires-buffett-gates-soros-funding-black-lives-matter-antifa-named-by-ag-barr-in-riots-looting-hijacking-peaceful-george-floyd-death-racial-justice-protests/

The facts are inconvenient to some. With so much information pouring forth daily, even fairly recent history can be obscured.  That’s accomplished by a variety of means, including false information being passed off as true. Which is why the Big Lie report, found among others linked below, is so important.

Day by day at MHProNews, we strive to unpack timely topics in an evidence-based fashion, clearly labeling what is reporting, fact-checks, analysis and commentaries. Readers like you flock by the thousands. Coincidence? Hardly.

There are major newspapers and news sites that don’t often get 500,000 hits on a single report. People like yourself may not always like what they read here, but they know that there are reasons to believe it is so. That one report’s readership dwarfs what our would-be rivals in manufactured housing trade media get for weeks on end. We dominate in our space because only “the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32).

Regardless of party or political affiliation, President Bill Clinton said it well. What’s wrong with America can be remedied by what’s right with America.


Absent applying the ancient principle of separating the wheat from the chaff, who would we ever find to quote, save God himself?

There is work to do. That includes the very things that President Donald Trump has already been trying to do for the past 3.3 years. Namely, lift all boats by increasing economic opportunities and working on racial, legal and other injustices.

Don’t miss some lighter and heavier topics just beyond the headline recaps.

With no further adieu, let’s pivot to the headlines from the week that was on 6.7 to this Flag Day 6.14.2020.

Political cartoons can often capture penetrating thoughts in a few words and simple images.


Keep in mind that there is documented evidence in the report linked below that it is billionaires who are funding the unrest in American cities. See the facts for yourself, then do what others do and share that link with others.

Why is there wealth inequality to begin with? These are issues that reports like those found here and on our sister site have explored for years. One key fact to recall is that affordable housing is a key to building personal or household wealth.  When people are deprived of authentic history and accurate information, the results aren’t funny. They are tragic.

Let’s pivot back to the issues that divide so many.

We are not Johnny come lately to issues of social and racial justice. We’ve been spotlighting that through the lens of affordable housing for years.

Some cheer others jeer Malcom X, but this quote is an insightful example of separating the wheat from the chaff. While quite different than Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcom X had some interesting thoughts on media.
Timely thoughts for manufactured housing professionals and affordable housing advocates.



Not to brag, but few in our industry would dare claim that they have the training, education, or experience to see what is possibly fake news or what is begging for added scrutiny.

But let’s give credit where it is due. Because what we have in the way of gifts ultimately comes from above. We all need each other’s gifts.

  • “Jesus said: “Watch out that no one deceives you.” (Mt. 24.4).
  • My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6.
  • And do not argue on behalf of those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah loves not one who is a habitually sinful deceiver. [Quran, 4:107]” – according to the Understand Quran Academy.
  • All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War, per GoodReads.
  • Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
    ― Criss Jami, per GoodReads.
Deepa Kumar quote from the thought-provoking video documenatary, Shadows of Liberty.
Dan Rather quote from the compelling video, Shadows of Liberty.

There’s always more ahead, because news and historic insights are always developing.

All on Capitol Hill were welcoming and interested with the discussion of manufactured housing related issues on our 12.3.2019 meetings. But Texas Congressman Al Green’s office was tremendous in their hospitality. Our son’s hand is on a package that included the Constitution of the United States and other goodies.

The featured image includes several metaphorical items. It can be seductive – but dangerous – to believe certain things. A mask, among other meanings, is used to project a false face, often used by actors. The eye conveys vision or understanding, which that woman and the mask partially obscures. The wall can stand for the harsh reality that sets in when illusion and the hard facts meet. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/masthead/the-party-is-over-so-whats-next/
