Buckle up. Because two different Democrats, one belatedly but intentionally, the other unintentionally, are each seemingly demonstrating in their own way the adage “a stitch in time saves nine.” Oxford Languages explains that phrase means: “if you sort out a problem immediately it may save a lot of extra work later.” Merriam Webster stated: “a stitch in time (saves nine) idiom — [is] used to say that it is better to fix a problem when it is small than to wait and let it become a bigger problem.” Per Wonderopolus: “Its meaning is quite simple: Don’t procrastinate! Procrastination means to delay or put off doing something until a later time.” Another pragmatic aspect to the “a stitch in time saves nine” maxim is that the sooner a problem is fixed rather than later the cost, not only in terms of time, but also in terms of money or discomfort, is often reduced. For example, anyone that has ever seen someone with a leaky roof knows that the sooner it is fixed, the less the damage and the lower the cost.
With that predicate, Part I of today’s report will be the announcement by federal officials that Democratic Senator Robert “Bob” Menendez (NJ), his wife, and others have been indicted for bribery. Per left-leaning Wikipedia: “Robert Menendez is an American lawyer and politician serving as the senior United States senator from New Jersey, a seat he has held since 2006.
Part II a Democratic Mayor of Dallas has announced via a letter to the editor in the Wall Street Journal that: “Democratic policies have exacerbated crime and homelessness.” Several of Mayor Eric Johnson’s remarks have been carried from news media that spans the left-center-right news landscape, which in and of itself may be a good indication of its importance.
Part III in our additional information with more MHProNews analysis and commentary segment, we will provide other facts and examples that will highlight why these two seemingly disconnected announcements involving two distinct Democratic figures is relevant to our profession and affordable housing, and to the broader issues facing the U.S. as the 2024 primary campaign heats up.
Part I – Per left-leaning CBS News, “New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez and wife indicted on federal bribery charges.”
CBS stated: “Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and his wife have been indicted by a federal grand jury, according to court filings unsealed Friday, with prosecutors alleging the couple accepted lavish bribes in exchange for official acts.
The bribery offenses against Menendez stem from a yearslong public-corruption investigation by the Justice Department. The indictment unsealed Friday charges Menendez and his wife, Nadine Menendez, with three counts in connection to their relationship with three New Jersey businessmen. …
Menendez vehemently denied the charges, but a chorus of New Jersey Democrats began urging him to step down later Friday. Gov. Phil Murphy said the allegations are “so serious that they compromise the ability of Senator Menendez to effectively represent the people of our state,” calling for his “.”
“Those who believe in justice believe in innocence until proven guilty,” Senator Menendez said. “I intend to continue to fight for the people of New Jersey with the same success I’ve had for the past five decades. This is the same record of success these very same leaders have lauded all along. It is not lost on me how quickly some are rushing to judge a Latino and push him out of his seat.”
Per CBS: “The 39-page indictment claims that from roughly 2018 to 2022, Menendez and his wife accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars of bribes in exchange for using his power and influence as a U.S. senator to enrich and protect the three businessmen and benefit Egypt’s government. Federal prosecutors in New York announced the charges during a press conference Friday morning and said the investigation is ongoing.” The link is to the indictment.
“As we allege in the indictment, the senator agreed to do these things and use his power in this way because Hana was paying bribes, because Uribe was paying bribes and because Daibes was paying bribes,” said Damian Williams, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
Part II – Per Left-Leaning Axios “Dallas mayor Eric Johnson switches to the Republican party.”
Why it matters: Johnson is now the only Republican mayor among the nation’s 10 largest cities. And even though its electorate remains majority Democratic, Dallas is now the largest Texas city with a GOP leader.
Flashback: Johnson served as a Democrat for nine years in the state House.
- He became mayor in 2019 after a runoff against longtime Councilman Scott Griggs. At the time, Johnson was backed by the city’s biggest donors and outgoing Democratic mayor Mike Rawlings.
- he ran for reelection unopposed.
- The mayor noted the perception of Dallas as a safe city and his opposition to “defunding” the police department in 2020. At the time he instead pushed to “defund the bureaucracy” by cutting city staff salaries.”
- What he’s saying: Johnson said Democrats leading many cities treat them as “laboratories for liberalism.”
- “Unfortunately, many of our cities are in disarray. Mayors and other local elected officials have failed to make public safety a priority or to exercise fiscal restraint.”
Via Twitter (Elon Musk owned “X”) Governor Greg Abott (TX-R) said this.
Texas is getting more Red every day.
Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson switches to Republican Party.
He’s pro law enforcement & won’t tolerate leftist agendas.
Two of the 10 largest cities in America now have Republican Mayors & they are both in Texas. https://t.co/Qn9SM7UZ1G
— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) September 22, 2023
Axios is speculating that Johnson may push for a shift to the strong mayor system and away from the city manager system.
From right-leaning Breitbart are these points.
Johnson, who assumed the mayorship in 2019, cited the need for metropolitan leaders to embrace “law and order and practice fiscal conservatism” as the main driver behind his decision to become a Republican.
“Our cities desperately need the genuine commitment to these principles (as opposed to the inconsistent, poll-driven commitment of many Democrats) that has long been a defining characteristic of the GOP,” Johnson said.
“In other words, American cities need Republicans — and Republicans need American cities,” the mayor added. “When my political hero Theodore Roosevelt was born, only 20% of Americans lived in urban areas. By the time he was elected president, that share had doubled to 40%. Today, it stands at 80%. As America’s cities go, so goes America.”
As Fox News noted, Dallas experienced a drop in crime after Johnson took over as mayor. Speaking to the news outlet in 2021, the mayor attributed the decrease to his pro-police policies and “community buy-in” on actions to tackle crime.
“Gratuitously cutting police departments to send a political message contributed to crime starting to move maybe even faster in the wrong direction in Dallas and other places,” he said at the time. “But I stood pretty firm right away to the position against making cuts to our police department’s overtime budget or any other aspect of our police department just for the sake of cutting for political reasons.”
Some Texas political observers say that Johnson’s decision to become a Republican is yet another illustration of the issues still plaguing the Democrat Party in the Lone Star State.
“This is certainly a smart move for his career,” Vinny Minchillo, a Republican consultant, told the Texas Tribute. “If you want to stay in Texas politics, you want to have the ‘R’ by your name.”
Right-leaning ZeroHedge said this in quoting Mayor Johnson’s announcement.
The future of America’s great urban centers depends on the willingness of the nation’s mayors to champion law and order and practice fiscal conservatism.
Our cities desperately need the genuine commitment to these principles (as opposed to the inconsistent, poll-driven commitment of many Democrats) that has long been a defining characteristic of the GOP.”
ZeroHedge elaborated with a mix of data, more from Mayor Johnson, and some of their own analysis and commentary.
As we have written in detail previously, cities governed by Democrat mayors have seen the largest increases in homicide rates over the past year as well as registered the highest homicide rate per capita in Q1 out of 45 cities, according to a new report.
Homicide rates in 45 of the most populated American cities rose by approximately 10 percent on average between Q1, 2021 and Q1, 2023, and continue to rise, according to an April 26 report by WalletHub. Blue cities were found to have a higher increase in homicide rates compared to red cities. The report designated a city as red or blue based on the mayor’s political affiliation.
The top five cities that saw the greatest increase in per capita homicide are Richmond, Virginia; Memphis, Tennessee; Durham, North Carolina; Garland, Texas; and Washington, D.C.
Except for Garland, where Mayor Scott LeMay is a Republican, the remaining four cities have mayors who are affiliated with the Democratic Party.
The highest homicide rate per capita in the first quarter of 2023 was in Memphis at 14.19 per 100,000 residents. New Orleans, Louisiana, came in second at 12.76, followed by Baltimore, Maryland, with 10.47, St. Louis, Missouri, with 9.91, and Detroit, Michigan, with 8.52.
Excluding St. Louis, the other four cities have mayors affiliated with the Democratic Party. The mayor of St. Louis, Tishaura Jones, was a former Democrat member of the Missouri House of Representatives.
“In other words,” the Dallas Mayor adds:
“American cities need Republicans – and Republicans need American cities.”
And that’s exactly what he does – changing his party affiliation to ‘Republican’, ready to leave office in 2027 as a Republican.
He is able to lift the ‘mask’ and see the problem that troubles so many of America’s cities.
“Unfortunately, many of our cities are in disarray… Most of these local leaders are proud Democrats who view cities as laboratories for liberalism rather than as havens for opportunity and free enterprise.”
Again, he nails it, daring to suggest the unmentionables that we have previously reported, Gregg W. Etter, a professor at the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Central Missouri, blamed the tendency of politicians to seek “simplistic, one-size-fits-all solutions to complex problems” as a reason behind the spike in homicides across the nation.
Politicians offer such solutions to gain favor with political interest groups during elections, he pointed out. For instance, when faced with the issue of police using force in isolated instances, such politicians might support defunding the police rather than dealing with problematic officers.
This ends up resulting in a less-effective police force, higher response times, lower morale among officers, and an “increasing unwillingness” to engage in proactive policing, he said.
“This has left many police forces in a strictly reactive mode, only responding to crimes that have already occurred. In addition, no-cash bail rulings have put many dangerous criminals back onto the streets even though they are arrested several times for violent crimes,” Etter said.
“In cities where these two things are happening, the crime rate has spiked. You have less police officers and more dangerous criminals at large.”
“Too often, local tax dollars are spent on policies that exacerbate homelessness, coddle criminals and make it harder for ordinary people to make a living,” writes Johnson.
“And too many local Democrats insist on virtue signaling – proposing half-baked government programs that aim to solve every single societal ill – and on finding new ways to thumb their noses at Republicans at the state or federal level. Enough. This makes for good headlines, but not for safer, stronger, more vibrant cities.”
He concludes, with a strong suggestion at the ballot box
“…the overwhelming majority of Americans who call our cities home deserve to have real choices—not “progressive” echo chambers—at city hall.”
We can only imagine the anger raging among the leftists as this one man steps up and unleashes the terrible truth about liberal-run urbania. You’re not supposed to say any of that in your out-loud voice. …”
Part III – Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary
We began with the word in the preface: “Buckle up.”
There are several broad categories of individuals in the U.S. For instance, there are those who think ‘nice thoughts’ that are ‘inclusive’ and ‘progressive’ which when those thoughts are translated into policies that they hope will yield a ‘nice’ or good result. Unfortunately, as millions already know, that belief doesn’t hold true. Merely wishing something works in a certain way is not how life works. As with any generalization, these are imperfect but potentially useful.
- Millions already grasp reality, and how tapping into reality is an authentic way can advance someone personally and professionally.
- Millions have been taught or lulled into behaviors deemed addictive, and we aren’t necessarily talking about booze, drugs, porn, or sex. That category is both apolitical and, in some instances has partisan implications.
- Yet another group is in between those camps, sitting on a fence.
For decades, American cities have been increasingly Democratically led. Problems that resulted from Democratic ‘feel good’ policies in those cities have risen. For example. Chicago’s problem with retail theft became so serious, numbers of retailers closed. Per Mid Michigan Now on 9.22.2023: “Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson announced a plan last week to explore opening a city-run grocery store to help underserved neighborhoods that have become food deserts.” Ponder that for a few moments. The ‘fix’ for the lack of neighborhood grocery stores for essential items, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson is proposing government owned stores instead. But policies were a driver that resulted in increased crime that yielded those ‘food deserts.’
This is but one of several examples of how failing to stem crime through poor policy choices is akin to ignoring “a stitch in time saves nine” maxim.
In part of California, and other Democratically run districts, rising crime due to no cash bail, ‘legalizing’ theft under $1000, or similar policies are backfiring. Left-leaning Desert Sun, part of the USA Today group of news publications said: “Theft wave and organized smash-and-grab shoplifting show California law needs change.”
Gen Z increasingly distrusts institutions. Is it any wonder?
By the way, per Beresford Research: Gen Z was born from “1997 – 2012,” which in 2023 means they are about age “11 – 26.” Per Gallup on 9.14.2023: “Overall, young people in the U.S. lack trust in several key political and social institutions, with those aged 18 to 26 expressing even less trust than their younger peers in most institutions. With the exception of science, no institution is trusted by a majority of Gen Z members.” Insider Intelligence said: “Generation Z is broadly defined as the 72 million people born between 1997 and 2012.” Some sources put that total as more like 68 million. The graphic below shows about how many millions of people are in each generational group.
The lack of trust by Gen Z in government, media, and other institutions is fueled by reality. When public officials say X in order to achieve a supposed result, but that promised result doesn’t occur, a loss of trust is no surprise. Experiences become a reality check. A ‘wake up call.’
Then, when a prominent Democratic lawmaker is charged with bribery and other possible crimes tied to foreign and domestic influence peddling, it would not be a surprise if that too erodes trust in Democrats and big government.
That doesn’t, however, automatically translate into more votes for Republicans. Some on the right believe that Mayor Johnson’s becoming a Republican, or Senator Menendez and others getting charged in what looks like a strong case for corruption will automatically translate into votes. That will only occur if Republican candidates and elected officials advance examples that cause previously Democratic or Democratic leaning independent voters to want to shift their allegiance.
Former award-winning CNN reporter Chris Plante, who left and eventually became an award-winning satirical talk-radio pundit on Washington, D.C.’s WMAL has seen the news business from the inside. He says the left has achieved information dominance. That information dominance favors Democrats. The Democratic party, say Plante and others, have largely been captured by deep pocketed donor class corporate interests and ultra-wealthy billionaires with tens or a hundred billion dollars or more in personal wealth. Several left-leaning news platforms have published reports that tend to support some of Plante’s assertions.
It isn’t just big news, but big tech (Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc.) and other sources that give Democrats an edge that Plante calls information dominance. Again, that’s not just a Republican leaning claim. It is a stance supported by longtime Democrats, liberals, etc.
Greenwald aptly calls some Republicans “Establishment Republicans.” Meaning, they are willing to vote for those special interests that are represented by deep corporate pockets and their often-left-leaning billionaire backers.
While Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.) is certainly a problem for Democratic strategists that back Biden-Harris, or whomever they decide to put up in their place, what Kennedy 2024 is doing is speaking to some disaffected Democrats, as well as finding some agreement among independents and even some Republicans.
Summing up, both major parties have their potential tools that could lead to victory in swing states. Those who think it is hopeless to think that Democrats can be beaten are mistaken. Those who think that Republican victory in sufficient races to yield control of the House, Senate, and White House to the Republican nominee are perhaps too optimistic. Specific races are winnable for those who lay out the facts and track records, and who give voters plausible reasons to trust a candidate’s campaign promises. What’s fascinating at this point is that polling often indicates that deposed President Donald J. Trump can beat Biden, or whomever the Democratic nominee will be. Mug shots and dozens of charges have not dimmed his prospects up to this point.
The planning and advocacy by some for Project 2025 and other logical related concepts could prove pivotal in getting voters off their couches and into polling booths.
The stich in time saves nine mantra certainly will make sense to tens of millions of more mature, seasoned, or ‘older’ voters. Perhaps if enough candidates and others stress the value of common sense, that too may have a salutary effect. Words don’t always translate into deeds. Those growing numbers in MHVille who have been following the drama of MHI’s claims vs. MHI’s outcomes get it.
That Republicans have been on record opposing, for example: open borders, defunding the police, changes in bail laws, or lax law enforcement by left-leaning DAs could, if they press those themes properly, pay off for them. That some problems have be worsened by policies and corruption like what Menendez or the Biden family is credibly accused of could be connected to the lessons learned from a stitch in time saves nine. Had Biden finished the wall that Trump and Republicans started, it might have played better for his or Harris’ possible run for another White House term. Had Biden not eroded U.S. energy independence, had he not made mistakes in thwarting Russian threats pre-invasion of Ukraine, or the debacle in Afghanistan, they might have better chances. Information dominance can certainly help Democrats, including Biden-Harris. But there is a point where reality sets in. Where people realize that they have been ‘played.’ More moderate Democrats like RFK Jr. and ‘Americans First and ‘America First’ type Republicans can gain ground, so long as they improve their messaging and show how their track record differs from their opponents. This phase of the campaign is obvious important to both major parties and to businesses, employees, retirees, investors, and others.
