Republican Glenn Youngkin Elected Governor
of Virginia, Besting Terry McAuliffe after
Eight Years of Democratic Rule

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 11/3/2021 12:45:02 AM

Republican Glenn Youngkin was declared the winner of the Virginia gubernatorial race by a number of outlets and election analysts on Tuesday night after a hard-fought campaign that he entered as a significant underdog. Despite trailing former governor Terry McAulife by as much as six and a half points in the RealClearPolitics polling average as late as the last week of August, Youngkin ultimately triumphed thanks to a hyper-focus on local issues and a commitment to walking the line between Trump supporters in rural, southern Virginia and wealthier suburbanites who were alienated by the MAGA wing of the party. Youngkin will take office in 2022 after eight years of Democratic control

I know this isn't a done deal yet--well said #1--, but the fact that I didn't wake up to "McAuliffe won" is encouraging. I think that in reality Youngkin stomped him of course, but that didn't matter in 2020. It's much harder to pull something like this off when everyone KNOWS what you are doing and they're extremely motivated to stop you. Yes, praise the Lord!!!!!!! First glimmer of hope I've felt in awhile. Also a bit worried they might try a major false flag.....petulant spoiled and wicked brats.

FTA: "Despite trailing former governor Terry McAuliffe by as much as six and a half points in the RealClearPolitics polling average as late as the last week of August..." This statement and the fact that Youngkin won by more than 2 points tells you everything you need to know about the communist propaganda masquerading as "polls".

it appears that I was so wrong in my predictions if these results hold and I couldn’t be happier! I am so proud of Virginians for stepping up for freedom. Maybe the sleeping giant has really stirred. Clearly, we are more “American” in our spirit than democrats thought. This is a small step but it definitely is in the right direction. Don’t look for dems to slow down, they won’t. In fact, they may double down but now at least they have a fight on their hands. It is going to be interesting to see how McConnell and McCarthy react to this. Everyone knows just how ineffective they have been and just maybe they will, at least, appear to want to lead. Not getting my hopes up on that one. However, bravo, Gov. Elect Youngkin! Well done!

Virginia is one happy state this morning. Youngkin will address their most serious problems immediately. I wish the media would stop dragging Trump into this because he had nothing to do with the win or the local issues but then they never do the right thing. Unless you count the stolen election that made poll watching a critical part of the win.

Fightin' Roy campaigned tirelessly - - for months - - all over Virginia. And then - - in his spare time - - worked feverishly in New Jersey. Where Fightin' Roy gets all that energy - - only God knows - - but we all benefit from his hard work - - his tireless efforts - - his strategic thinking - - his brilliant oratory - - and his incredible leadership skills.

I just spoke to my daughter who lives in Loudoun County and her town’s representative for the county just flipped to red too.

The Takeaways from the Virginia Election: 1. You can't give the finger to parents then expect that they're going to vote for your sorry ass. You get between a Mamma Bear Soccer Mom and her kids at your own peril. 2. Merely running around screaming TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP! and trying to gin up hysteria over January 6 is a losing strategy. It's the economy and education issues, stupid. 3. Obozo still has no coattails. Neither does Demented Poopypants. 4. Being a defeatist and spreading doom and gloom on social media forums makes you look rather silly when you turn out to have been completely wrong.

McAuliffe is one bad apple and good for the people of Virginia to see through the corrupt fraud that he is. About as likable as Billary, Chuckie, and Nanie. Good riddance to bad rubbish. And if the Virginia pubbies gain control of the state house, all the better - currently some of these races are still up in the air. I really expected massive voting fraud to push McAuliffe over the top. Grateful that I was wrong. But, kudos to biden the cheater, Kamalie, Obie, and Virginia's msm to help bury McAuliffe and provide Virginia with a good man in Youngkin.

I also have been skeptical of there ever being another honest election, and there probably was substantial fraud by the dems, but this was a huge victory! This Republican rout will have all of the wretched, devious Marxist operatives out there shaking in their boots. It shows the deep state's power is limited. They can and will be defeated.

Not a Regan and not a Trump. Just a highly socialized business type who would have been a "moderate" Democrat in years past. But I'll take the win for it's value in stifling the national Democrat jihad. More impressed with the school board team in Denver.

Now Youngkin has to deal with a demoslut controlled legislature, the socialist teacher's unions, and school boards. Remember too, the parents are still considered domestic terrorists by the DOJ, and FBI. Republicans may control the top of the plant, but the roots are still socialist/communist. That needs to change as well.

A terrific win we all prayed for, but there's a concern. Fairfax County stopping the counting last night. Reminiscent of the 2020 fraud election where the counting was stopped and "ballots" were found. We believe that Youngkin won by more than 2%, probably 8-10%. Thank God there was overwhelming voting for Youngkin, otherwise crooked McAwful would have won. That's what's going on in New Jersey with Jack for Governor. With all of the voting corruption, it's a miracle he's ahead in the count. Pray people because the demonrats want to steal this NJ election too like last year. Prayer can stop the enemy's plan to destroy our Country!

The fun is only beginning. If Republicans don't screw this up - which is a very real possibility, unfortunately - this momentum can last years and it can fundamentally change the political landscape.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said again on Thursday that there will be no mandates for children to receive coronavirus vaccinations in Florida. He also said officials will not set up state-run vaccination sites similar to the ones opened at the beginning of the year for adults, WFLA reported. “The vaccines are going to everybody in the normal medical system the way it is,” DeSantis explained. “So we’re not doing vaccine sites. They’re at the pharmacies. They’re readily available for everybody.” “I don’t think there’s any difference in the vaccine that’s doing,” he continued. “I think they may take a lower dosage.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that his state will officially file a lawsuit against President Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. During a press conference with state Attorney General Ashley Moody in Tampa, DeSantis said Florida would be joining Georgia, Alabama and private plaintiffs in suing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) over its vaccine mandate for employers. "This is not consistent with a government of limited and enumerated powers," the Republican governor said. "There is no general police power, there is no power to mandate on the American people from the federal government." "Individuals should make informed choices about their own healthcare," he added.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis appears unstoppable. A year before the Florida gubernatorial election, the Republican governor has nearly $60 million in the bank. The GOP is on the cusp of becoming the state’s majority party after erasing Democrats’ enormous voter registration advantage. The Democratic field is splintering and support for President Joe Biden has collapsed in the state. It’s a situation that has alarmed Democrats, who fear that Florida’s days as a battleground state are over and that national donors will write off their candidates. “Right now Democrats are engaged in Powerball politics.

President Joe Biden, having failed twice to convince House Democrats to back his legislative agenda, resorted Thursday to personally calling lawmakers to beg them to vote for the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tentatively scheduled a vote on the Build Back Better Act, or the Democrats’ social welfare and climate change spending reconciliation act. Biden has pinned his legislative agenda on his passing dual infrastructure bills, the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the Build Back Better Act. He expected his legislative majorities in the House and Senate to pass these bills despite the frictions between House moderate and progressive Democrats.

The U.S. Department of Justice is suing Texas over its new voting law, passed earlier this year in the Legislature. The Texas voting law will “disenfranchise eligible Texas citizens who seek to exercise their right to vote, including voters with limited English proficiency, voters with disabilities, elderly voters, members of the military deployed away from home, and American citizens residing outside of the country,” the suit claims. The law, which was ushered through by Texas Republicans as Senate Bill 1, further tightens state election laws and constrains local control of elections by limiting counties’ ability to expand voting options.

Braun is the ranking member of the Senate Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety. Biden’s mandate, to be written by the Department of Labor and enforced through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is expected to be completed and distributed any day now. The subcommittee has jurisdiction over OSHA. There are some notable exemptions to Biden’s vaccine mandate, besides religious objections and medical exemptions.

Texas voters took to the polls Tuesday to decide on eight proposed amendments to the state Constitution. These were passed as bills during this year’s legislative sessions but require voter approval. Unofficial results show that Texans are poised to approve all eight amendments, including one proposal barring the state from limiting religious services, even during disasters like the coronavirus pandemic, and another changing eligibility requirements for judges. Turnout this year was lower than the last constitutional amendment election in 2019, with only about 9% of registered Texas voters casting a ballot. Turnout in odd-numbered years has always been low.

Middle Peninsula voters overwhelmingly want to keep their Confederate monuments, according to results of advisory referendums in Mathews and Middlesex counties. Mathews voters rejected a proposal to relocate the county’s Soldier’s & Sailor’s Monument on its court green at the corner of Court and Church streets by 3,778, or 80% of ballots cast, to 939, or 20%. In Middlesex, the vote against moving its Civil War Monument from the courthouse grounds in Saluda was 3,229, or 75% of ballots cast, to 1,076.
