(American Thinker) – In 2016, Trump spoke to tens of thousands, and Hillary spoke to hundreds… and Trump won. In 2020, despite COVID, Trump spoke to tens of thousands, and Biden spoke to… well, not even tens. Maybe to fives, all of whom sat in little marked circles far away from each other. And yet it’s Biden who’s in the White House.
Now it’s 2022, and once again, Trump is speaking to tens of thousands, and Biden is speaking to tens. What can and should we take away from that?
The head-to-head comparison comes from Benny Johnson, who put together a video showing Trump’s and Biden’s appearances in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. It’s important to note that Wilkes-Barre is part of Luzerne County, a Republican-majority county. However, that majority is not equal to, say, San Francisco County, where Biden claimed 85.26 percent of the votes to Trump’s 12.72 percent – something that’s a totally believable result if one knows that San Francisco is self-destructing because of its unopposed leftism.
In Luzerne, the vote split 56.7 percent for Trump versus 42.3 percent for Biden. In other words, although Trump carried the day with almost 87,000 votes, over 64,000 people still supported Biden. Both men have a lot of supporters who can turn up at their rallies.
When it comes to Wilkes-Barre rallies in 2022, the video from Trump’s rally makes it look as if all 86,929 of Trump’s voters tried to squeeze into the venue, and all the attendees are wildly enthusiastic. Meanwhile, the video from Biden’s rally shows what looks like a debate at a high school gym when the candidates are the two unpopular kids whom no one in the school likes. The room is mostly empty, and the energy is non-existent:

Here is what they looked like back to back.

So what do these videos mean for 2022?
The G20 meeting this October will see the most powerful nations in the world - the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, China, Russia and Brazil among others - discuss climate policies that are already affecting billions of people around the world.
This powerful cadre of international leaders wants the world to run on solar and wind power, forcing an end to the use of gas, oil and nuclear power, as well as crushing beef farmers because of supposed methane emissions.
But the harsh impact of such policies is already being felt, with energy blackouts and soaring inflation hammering people around the world, making it beyond time for all of us to speak out.
SIGN: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
As western leaders turn off the oil spigots and impose draconian restrictions on farmers, we've all experienced the pain of increased prices, not least at the pump and the grocery store.
This inflation was entirely avoidable if only our politicians prioritized food and energy security over climate theories, but instead they have succumbed to radical environmentalists whose agenda would cripple the livelihoods and living standards of much of the globe.
Communities all around you are feeling the weight of crushing price hikes, which will soon reach your own food isles and gas pumps if it hasn't already.
The effects of inflation are being felt in the developing world most, as fuel and food prices sky rocket, making even worse poverty an inevitabilty for hundreds of millions of people.
Reality will hit home for us soon.
The harshest effects of energy shortages will be felt this winter in the west, when our leaders' decisions to cut oil supplies and reject Russian natural gas will:
- force heating, fuel and electricity prices to sky rocket
- continue to make food more expensive
- risk a global depression as inflation spirals out of control
- prompt more blackouts
- make civil unrest a real possibility
The media are already preparing people for rolling blackouts. States like California and countries like England are warning citizens that they face severe electricity and gas shortages.
Now is the time to speak out and be part of a movement that can prevent this disaster spreading.
SIGN the petition calling on international leaders to abandon their reckless energy agenda and return the world to economic stability.
The entire climate change industry is based on models that have been consistently inaccurate for decades, with Al Gore among the most infamous prophets of doom to be proven wrong.
In 2009 Gore told the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen that the North Pole would be ice-free by 2014, a claim that remains wildly off the mark.
Arctic sea ice has increased since 2012 and is now close to the average for 1991-2000 – another inconvenient fact for climate change alarmists, alongside thriving polar bears and more coral on the Great Barrier Reef. https://t.co/3m7jcaj1hV— Toby Young (@toadmeister) September 1, 2022
Al Gore is not alone in getting things wrong however, as this brief timeline of scaremongering headlines proves:
The world needs to wake-up to what's really happening: our lives are being upended on the basis of climate theories and models that have been consistently wrong for decades.
It's time to stop the scaremongering and push back against the radical agenda of international elites.
SIGN & SHARE: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
In 2016, Democrats didn’t take steps to address the possibility that Trump could actually win, so he won. In 2020, Democrats took lots of steps to address the possibility that Trump could win (none of which included a viable candidate), so he lost.
We can anticipate that, in 2022, which Democrats are making a referendum on Trump even though he’s not on the ballot, the Democrats will take lots of steps to ensure that any candidate who might possibly support Trump loses. They’ll probably get help from the pooh-bahs in the Republican Party who view Trump as a threat to their power.
However, unlike 2020, when the Democrats could focus their energy on a single candidate (Trump), plus a few important Senate seats, this year, there are too many local elections for Democrats to impose a top-down victory across the board. What will make the difference is turnout.
If Republicans allow themselves to be disheartened by polling (which no one should trust anymore), the ones who aren’t attending rallies may not vote. That’s a sure path to defeat. It’s a simple corollary: winners never quit, and quitters never win.
The answer for us is to do exactly what Rush Limbaugh always said: get out there and vote for the most conservative candidate who can win. And vote in numbers that will exceed the margin of fraud. Just remember, Trump is still filling stadiums, and Biden, with his “81 million votes,” can’t fill a high school gym.
One more thing: Remind your local GOP and/or candidate that they need to speak to voters first about the issues that matter: the economy, national security, and crime. Then talk about how appalling Biden and the Democrats are.
