Warren Buffett Supported Prosperity Now Celebrates Biden-Future, RNC’s Tone Deaf Message, plus Manufactured Housing Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones1.21.2021ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesBroaderMarketSnapshotIn a message forwarded to MHProNews was this from the Republican National Committee (RNC).

In less than one day, Joe Biden has already undone many of President Trump’s – and the Republican Party’s – accomplishments that put AMERICA FIRST. Here are just a few of the many Executive Actions that he signed yesterday:

  • Construction at the Border Wall has STOPPED.
  • Illegal Immigrants will be counted in the United States Census.
  • The Keystone Pipeline has been CANCELED → thousands of jobs will be destroyed.
  • Rejoined the World Health Organization that helped China cover up their terrible handling of the Coronavirus.
  • Reversed the travel ban to keep radical terrorist groups out of the United States.
  • And, so much more…”

It is one of several such messages sent for MHProNews feedback and analysis. Of course, it includes a fund-raising pitch. Similar Democratic messages forwarded to MHProNews have their own messaging, in reverse, of course. New reader disclosure, MHProNews’ management are political independents, not registered with any political party.

Related to report linked below, MHProNews reached out to the “Patriot Party.”


In response to our inquiry, the Patriot Party sent the following reply.

We will be making announcements soon for a Patriot Party Virtual Convention as well as conferences in various states over the summer. Cannot comment on Trump team at this time.” There was more, but that is perhaps the key points from a party spokesperson.

The Chris Salcedo Show on Newsmax this evening did a segment which included a pair of panelists. One panelist argued for not splitting the GOP by witnessing a serious Trump-connected Patriot Party creation. The other argued for the new party, pointing to the frustration with millions in the GOP base over the dozens in the House and Senate who threw away an opportunity on and before January 6, 2021 to #StopTheSteal.

MHProNews has over 20,000 articles online. The largest of our cPanel, each of which collects site data, reports the following as the most accessed reports month-to-date. The split between industry-laser focused articles vs. those that have a broader appeal is noticeable. Perhaps as or more important, these topics are witnessing a surge of traffic on MHProNews. The second one below was published months ago, and topped 1.5 million hits within the first few weeks of publication.

The point? Several. Professionals and others are increasingly seeing the importance of how politics impacts their business.




On our MHLivingNews sister site, among the top articles is this Clayton Homes expose linked below, which has apparently topped 1 million hits.

That noted, in the wake of political topics on MHLivingNews, again an even larger surge of traffic is occurring on our sister-site.

Tens of millions of Americans seem to feel that President-Select Joe Biden* is not a legitimate president at all.



Perhaps because MHProNews provides meaty references, instead of mere word salads and verbal bomb tossing, we have been the industry’s leading publisher for over a decade. While some may begrudge their prior plugs for our accuracy and objectivity, our methodology has only become more focused on facts and sound analysis, not less so.

Be it investors or industry professionals, the growing realization that the #SystemIsRigged is fueling interest here and on our sister site. Because we are not blind political partisans, but rather are facts, results, and policy focused, industry pros make us their source for news tips.

Most of the facts in the reports linked below were available to the RNC and those GOP lawmakers who did not stand up for President Trump on and in advance of the January 6, 2021 Congressional ‘certification’ of the Electoral College. When someone looks at the evidence, how could several GOP elected and party officials have failed to rally around President Trump?


Part One – The Immaculate Deception


Part Two – The Art of the Steal


Part Three – Yes, President Trump Won



The apparent answer is quite simple. In both major parties, there are donors who are just fine with the status quo ante with respect to President Trump’s efforts to #MAGA and #DrainTheSwamp.

Until dozens of GOP lawmakers and party officials figure out how to make amends with and reconnect with disgruntled-to-angry Trump voters, it is one more reason why the wishful thinking that the GOP ‘retakes the House and Senate in 2022’ is just that…wishful thinking.

As a related to the reports above, the links below include the recent report from the Director of National Intelligence, describing how the CCP interfered with our elections last November 3rd. It also essentially describes how the CIA – think Deep State – colluded with this effort.

That said, let’s press ahead to those features. That White House list is one of several items that may well prove historic. It may also prove a thorn in the side of the Biden-Harris team and those billionaires, corporate, tech, media and other forces that are poised to place them in power. It was Biden who said this would be a dark winter.

Preparing for a Bright Year Ahead

From the President and CEO


Dear Friends,

Happy new year! I hope you are all staying safe and well.

This year started off in a way that surprised and saddened me. As we all know, the Capitol came under siege on January 6 by a mob of insurrectionists bent on overturning our election. It was a dark day for our democracy. I also acknowledge the stark contrast in how the extremists at the Capitol were treated on January 6, and how peaceful demonstrators were treated this summer in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. For many reasons, this is a painful and shameful time in our country.

As we consider the heinous events at the Capitol and the myriad implications of those events, we also need to consider what needs to happen to effectively address racial economic injustice in America. It is clear that we need new and innovative approaches to make real progress and lasting change.

I believe we need to consider new ways of framing issues of racial economic justice that focus on the unique strengths of BIPOC communities and the immeasurable positive impact they have had on our democracy. To that end, I recently published an article in Nonprofit Quarterly discussing the power of building identity from a strength-based framework, rather than through a deficit-focused lens. Though there are, indeed, systemic problems that must be addressed in seeking economic justice for BIPOC communities, I want to challenge our field to more frequently and more publicly acknowledge the power of their stories and strengths.

Another area we’re keenly focused on in the new year is effective advocacy, which is essential for addressing the “wicked problems” of economic injustice. There are both immediate needs, such as pandemic relief, and long-term solutions, such as an expansion of low-income tax credits and other specific policies to address the racial wealth divide. And, when nearly all business is being done virtually, it’s even more imperative that our community members have the tools they need to advocate effectively in this changed environment. Check out this blog authored by my colleagues Vanna Cure and Arohi Pathak outlining ways to effectively advocate virtually for policy change in 2021.

We look forward to continuing our efforts with you this year. Though the first weeks of 2021 have been dark, I am confident that our work together will lead to brighter days ahead.


In solidarity,




Gary L. Cunningham
President & CEO
