So many take-aways. And Americans still care deeply about the future facing their young kin. . . .

1. Virginia and New Jersey

The despicable liars of the Left Media hide the true news by shading and shaping it. They color and distort public opinion. They lie to us, intimidating tens of millions of people and brainwashing the public. They distort polling. They tell people a “truth” from an alternate universe, often persuading the weak and impressionable to lose faith in their own common sense. That is why people like me devote the thousands of hours we invest each year in our writing efforts. We aim to assure our readers not to be fooled, not to be intimidated — because your gut instincts are correct:

For example: There are only two genders. Male and female He created them, the Torah tells us. Our eyes tell us. Our common sense tells us. It indeed is binary — two. Only two. Deux. Dos. Два. Shnayim. Zwei. Dwa. Male and female. The people with the attachment that transmits the seed, and the people with the aperture to receive the seed.

Yes, there are people with gender dysphoria. They are mentally ill in that way. Even the Mayo Clinic says so: “Gender dysphoria is a diagnosis listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association to diagnose mental conditions.” The Woke Left may not like reality. But gender dysphoria is a mental illness. Our hearts go out to those who are sexually confused. We wish for them the best medical treatment our society can offer, to learn to make peace with how G-d created them. For those born male, we wish for them peace so that they one day can appreciate that. If made female, we wish for them the peace to accept the glory of womanhood. But there are only two genders. The Left Media seek to make the public crazy, as though 3,000 years of recorded human history is false on its face. But, no, it never was false.

The Left Media — ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post — have done all they could to convince Americans that we now need to educate our children, from as early as grade school, that it is “normal” for a boy to want to have his male appendage cut off, for a girl to have her breasts chopped off, to be consigned to external medicines and steroids and hormones for the rest of their lives, to lose the chance to have their own children. It was been an uphill battle to overcome the media toxin, the day-after-day brainwashing, the poison being taught in so many American classrooms.

Side by side with inculcating transgender dysphoria, the same Left Media aim continually to reinforce the Democrat Left’s headstrong rush and determination to teach schoolchildren a falsified narrative of American history. They want children, from the start, to learn that America was created to be an outlet for slavery and racism. That is a pernicious lie. America was created to be an outlet for freedom. The Founding Fathers were not perfect — they were flawed in certain ways, deeply flawed by accepting and maintaining slavery. But they were children of their time, just as we are of ours. You can take this to the bank: Just as we look back today on them and recoil from the horror that they perpetuated with slavery, so it is that future generations will look back on our Woke era and will see the flaws and shame and madness of our times that include:

1. The mental illness of gender dysphoria that so many attempted to normalize;

2. The cruelty and barbarianism of transgender surgery;

3. The insanity of 1619 false history;

4. The mendacity that systemic racism exists in America against non-Whites;

5. The reality that systemic racism does exist in America against Caucasians;

6. The historic tragedy of importing millions of illegals to replace the moderate, conservative American majority; and

7. The historic error of teaching public school students “woke math” while assuring that those who avoid public schools would learn true 1776 history and honest numerical mathematics.

Tonight, Glenn Youngkin has soundly defeated Terry McAuliffe in a state where:

1. No Republican had won statewide for more than ten years;

2. The Democrat president (Biden, for those wondering who has been president since January) campaigned in the state;

3. The Democrat vice president (Kamala Harris, for those wondering when a vice president will be entering the picture to assume the country’s No. 2 office) had been barnstorming up and down the state;

4. The Democrats came into the evening holding the state houses; and

5. Obama barnstormed up and down the state.

Tonight showed a massive shift away from the Left, the Democrats, and the “progressive” media towards common sense and socially conservative Republicanism. The Commonwealth of Virginia may save the Republic in her eleventh hour.

Likewise, even in deep blue New Jersey, even if the incumbent Democrat, Phil Murphy, manages to cling to his office, the Republican Jack Ciattarelli achieved a massive turnaround. No one even imagined that the GOP candidate for New Jersey governor still would be in the running by 3 a.m. in the East. Only one day before the election, the polls had Ciattarelli down by eight points. Thus it has been all night, even with more than 87 percent of the vote tabulated in a state massively dominated by Democrats. Indeed, if the polls had not so wrongly predicted a Murphy mini-landslide but rather a true nail-biter, Ciattarelli very possibly might have succeeded in raising that extra little more money and voter enthusiasm he needed to win hands down. Still, even in New Jersey, regardless of final outcome, we have seen a massive shift away from Democrat “progressivism” and towards social conservatism. It is a statement that — even in deep blue New Jersey — people are sick of The Squad, the regressive “progressive” Left, and particularly of the garbage being taught to their children in public schools. Young kin matter in New Jersey, too.

An off-year breakthrough has been achieved. Just as the fall of Afghanistan and the botched evacuation from Kabul finally pierced through Joe Biden’s media firewall that had been protecting him from honest scrutiny, so it is that this off-year election result has broken through and shattered the Left Media’s false narrative about what Americans really want. Americans do not want critical race theory and false self-hating “1619 American history” taught to their children in the public schools. They want children to be safe in public bathrooms that are designated respectively either for boys or for girls. They want law and order at the southern border. Americans of good will and tolerance are sick and tired of being called racist. They want police funded and criminals suppressed. They are sick of “Black Lives Matter” and Antifa  racists and thugs defining them. They want home-sourced American energy, and they want inflation controlled. With election results like these recorded tonight in 2021, there stands enormous prospect that the Republicans will take back the House of Representatives in 2022. Nancy Pelosi will be free to return maskless to her hair salon in San Francisco, pack her freezer with all the $15 quarts of ice cream she likes, and end her days forgotten in solitude. We eagerly await the November 8, 2022 blowout.

2. Baseball and the Failed Georgia Boycott

Major League Baseball tried to hurt and crush the state of Georgia. MLB despicably moved its annual All-Star Game from Atlanta last July. The Woke Left attacked the state of Georgia for attempting to change state election law to assure fair and honest results in the future, and MLB caved to a Woke national boycott depriving Georgia of its long-awaited turn to be in baseball’s spotlight. Baseball — the one American sport that had not been stained and poisoned by the Left — had decided to go “Woke” and move out of Georgia. Tonight even that Woke initiative failed.

There will be more to say and write in the next 24 hours, but for now suffice to say that:

1. The general overall national boycott against Georgia has failed.

2. Baseball embarrassed itself by moving the All-Star Game away from Atlanta in July.

3. Fittingly, Major League Baseball was dragged right back to Georgia, against its will, by the Atlanta Braves.

4. The World Series now has been won by the team from Georgia.

5. That winning team remains named for Indians — the Braves — replete with ritual scalping tomahawk chops.

6. Georgia has not changed its voting laws despite the failed boycott.

7. The Woke have lost on that one. The mainstream norm has been preserved. Chop. Chop.

Chop.

Through the twilight’s last gleaming, amid the rockets’ red glare, and the bombs bursting through the air, we have proof through the night that our flag is still there. Our star-spangled banner yet waves tonight over a land that remains free and over the home of the Braves.
