Politicians (Edwards, Clinton) Holding Babies: What else do they have in common?

“Life imitates art”, it was once said.  But here in the City of Arts & Innovation we mostly have government-approved art, which is not nearly as creative.  And so Oscar Wilde, upon watching events unfold on both a national level and here in the ole’ River City as of late, might’ve instead observed, “Lowlife imitates lowbrow,” … had he not passed away 118 years ago.  The Big O, during his days above-ground, may even have heard of Riverside, California, established in 1870 by John North, and the richest per-capita City at one point in all the land…but that was then, and this is now.

As you might remember dear readers, in 2016 the nation was rocked by the revelation that Donna Brazile, one-time interim chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), was fired from her position as a political commentator at CNN over e-mail leaks suggesting she had improperly supplied Hillary Clinton’s campaign with advance knowledge of questions to be posed to her during Democratic campaign events hosted by the news network.

The Bernie-crats were outraged at this ethical breach, as it stoked their imaginations as to whatever-else mischief the party elites had conspired to cheat their favorite socialist son out of his proper accession to the throne.  In our humble opinion, this event was straw that broke the back of the Clinton-memorial Democratic Party, which has since escalated to the attempted socialist takeover of the DNC, led by entitled millenials like “15-minutes-of-fame” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and company.

California (and Illinois, the Northeast) being the last refuge of political scoundrels these days, while the rest of the country takes at least a momentary breather from progressivism (aka, “we preach tolerance, but hate diversity of thought”) and the nanny-state, we will instead double-down and dive head-first into the socialism pool because … “this time it’s different!”  Enter the 2018 mid-term elections, where the Bernie-crats had great success here in the Sunshine State turning Orange County blue and picking up targeted seats, much to the dismay of the RivCo good-ole-boys, in many local elections…which brings us to the Spring of 2019.

Enter Erin Edwards, a relative newcomer to the Riverside scene whose political platform essentially seems to be, “I’ll solve homelessness, support everything good, and I’m a gay woman.  Vote for me – I’m a millenial, which means I’ve got it all figured out.  Hold my cell phone, while I do some City Council-ing.”  Ms. Edwards recently received the endorsement of the local Democratic Socialist Party despite being here for what amounts to a cup of coffee and understanding our particular local issues a little bit better than our neighborhood cat Jakey.  (Jakey is decidedly against coyotes and for long naps in the sun.)

Will Edwards learn the Importance of Being Earnest?

Jakey will Make Riverside Great Again by eating all the vermin at City Hall

Now we at TMC do not begrudge anyone because of their sexual orientation or gender – heck, we’re jealous we didn’t think of drag queen storytelling time first – but we abhor the identity politics of the left (“vote for me, I look like you!”), which only divides us more.  We also know, as we’ve been sounding the fiscal clarion call for almost a decade now: a) that Riverside is broke, b) Measure Z was a bait & switch designed to keep our public employees atop the food chain, and c) we need leaders willing to make tough fiscal decisions, not placators unwilling to stop the vicious cycle of government taxation and spending, which makes us all poorer and contributes to our Day of the Living Dead homeless problem by increasing the cost of things.

Upon Closer Inspection, “There’s a Wocket in His Pocket!”

Just Another Day Down at the River Bottom

We’ve been told Ms. Edwards is a nice enough human being, but this being Riverside, we also know that quality attracts those with less savory aspirations – those willing to bend a few rules in order to cling to someone with a less-sullied reputation.  Those with ambitions: wannabe puppet-masters.  And with that long-winded and overly-dramatic intro, we were the least surprised people in Southern California today when we received the following email from the camp of one of Ms. Edwards’ political opponents:

Is this “the smoking gun”?  Who is Deep Throat?

Enter Chani Beeman, long-time Downtown Area Neighborhood Alliance representative, likely supporter of whomever is in power locally (or aspires to be), and general do-gooder.  Ms. Beeman is an avid supporter of Ms. Edwards, obviously impressed with her extensive background in running billion-dollar organizations like the City of Riverside.  Apparently, Ms. Brazile Beeman is such an eager beaver that she is willing to do just about anything to give Ms. Clinton Edwards the upper hand to be the next Ward One City Councilmember, including impugning the integrity of upstanding groups like the Neighbors of the Wood Streets, the Ward One Neighborhoods United election effort, the Downtown Area Neighborhood Alliance, and the League of Women Voters. How?  By using her credentials as a member of League and the Downtown Alliance to pre-screen the questions asked of the candidates at last week’s forum at Riverside Community College despite her obvious conflict.  In shorthand, she done NOWS, WONU, DANA, and LOWV dirty at RCC.

BFF’s as of 3/18/2019

“The League of Women Voters is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government” Oh really?

Ms. Beeman was seen on-stage with friend(?), LOWV President, and moderator Joan Donahue before the event (confirmed by several sources now) reviewing and, gasp, editing the questions for the candidates prior to the forum apparently just minutes after Riverside taxpayer and ratepayer champion, Jason Hunter, handed over the list to Ms. Wasserman-Schultz Donahue.  Reached for comment Mr. Hunter stated, “The whole point of waiting until the last minute to hand over the list of questions to the moderator was to prevent any candidate from accessing it to get an unfair advantage.”  Poor Mr. Hunter.  If he had only been reading Thirty Miles as often as he should’ve over the years, he would’ve handcuffed the list to his wrist until seconds before the forum.  But alas, he didn’t and now we are left to wonder how the unlevel playing field potentially created by Ms. Beeman’s actions will bias our future representation in Riverside’s Ward One.

Beeman, Brazile – Sisters from Different Misters?

Would the Real Joan Donahue Please Stand Up?

Did Ms. Edwards get a copy of the questions beforehand so as to be better prepared than the other candidates?  Were questions changed to Ms. Edwards’ benefit?  Who knew what, and when?  Oh the humanity!  Where’s Wikileaks when you truly need them?  Of one thing we are certain:  Ms. Beeman’s continued involvement in either WONU or Ms. Edward’s campaign will alert us as to whether the fix is in …. and also clue us in towards the character of Ms. Edwards herself.  On the other hand did the DNC murder Seth Rich because it was necessary for the political narrative?

Whatever Happened to Voting For the Best Candidate?  TMC detests identity-based politics.

But hey, at least we know the Bernie-crats are capable of adapting their strategy to accommodate the dirty tricks they once despised.  But will they work?  Stay tuned for the next WONU forum, currently scheduled for March 27th, where you might catch an Edwards supporter shining laser-pointers in Mike Gardner’s eyes or passing out videos of Phillip Falcone’s crazy antics at his 18th birthday party (just last year?).  In any case, we here at TMC are baaaaack, and just in time for our favorite time of the year – the election silly season, where logic ceases to exist and folks no one had ever heard of 12 months ago become the next big thing for “hope and change” in Riverside.  Or do voters stick with old Mike, who is like an old sofa that is somewhat comfortable if you sit just right, but really should’ve been replaced 4 years ago?

No man can serve two masters – Matthew 6:24

Is there a family resemblance?

We know we’ll be watching…and reporting for the sake of our loyal 4 readers (and Jakey, who likes to look at the pictures).

Smiling faces, smiling faces, sometimes
They don’t tell the truth

    Very interesting. It’s too bad some folks don’t see the wrongs in what they have just learned. Dr Phil says “A good predictor of future behavior is bad behavior.”

    This comes as no surprise! More will be revealed.

    So the basis of this accusation is that someone saw someone talking to a person who had questions for candidates and went to talk to the candidate? So we don’t know whether Ms Beeman was asking the candidate if she needed some water or whether she was prepared for the debate or, in fact, telling her about the questions. This is really irresponsible. If there’s concern about conflict of interest then explore the issue, make a formal complaint but don’t cast aspersions on someone without evidence. That makes you worse than the people you have issues with.

    • It is our understanding they were reviewing the actual submitted questions that was handed to them. We also have confirmation from Mr. Jason Hunter, who submitted the questions, that the questions were indeed revised. We reached out to the Erin Edwards campaign for comment but received no answer. Hence, since then Chani Beeman has stepped down as alleged Campaign Manager for Council Candidate Erin Edwards.

    The Homeless word is used incorrectly to describe Bums. It takes twenty percent down to buy a home plus closing cost. So, to make it simple a hundred thousand dollar home you would have to have twenty thousand dollars down and another five thousand for closing costs and Supplemental taxes. Bums chose to live that way. Also, socialism equals communism. Wake up property owners the socialist want to stick you with the bills so they can run around and protest in the streets while they live at home with their parents.
