President Trump has big rallies. He always has. He talks about his rallies, especially the size, every time he has one. He even talks about them when he hasn’t had one in a while. It’s important, and not just for the sake of stroking his own ego.
Last night’s rally in New Hampshire was a standard gargantuan affair. This time, it actually made history by drawing the largest attendance ever at the venue, eclipsing the previous record held by an Elton John concert.

One of the images the President Tweeted, which can be seen at the top of this article, shows thousands of people watching his speech. It’s more people than currently attend any of the Democrats’ rallies. But here’s the thing. These weren’t the attendees surrounding the President for his speech. This is the overflow, the people who couldn’t get inside because it filled up too quickly. They’re watching him from outside on the big screen.
Inside, there were many more people who were smart enough to get there earlier.
When the Democratic field is whittled down to two or three, we can expect the survivors to have bigger crowds than they’re getting now. Bernie Sanders had famously large crowds when he was running, but at the time he was the only socialist and most of America hadn’t even heard of the candidates other than Hillary Clinton. This time, his crowds are modest by comparison because he’s splitting the socialists with Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and to some extent Pete Buttigieg.
But it’s important and quite telling that President Trump is still getting such large crowds coming out to see him. There are three small reasons for this and one huge one. The three small reasons are:
- Optics: Nothing gives the visual of a “winner” like a huge crowd of supporters.
- Buzz: Today, tens of thousands of people are going to talk about how great the rally was or how they had to watch it from outside. Either way, the stories being told will spread across New Hampshire.
- Confidence: Seeing rallies like these, whether in person, in replay, or on articles like this one, give the confidence voters need to hand over their hard-earned money in the form of campaign contributions. Moreover, it eases concerns of voters sitting on the fence that they’re not considering backing a lost cause.
These three are all important, but there’s a much bigger reason President Trump’s huge rallies are so important. They drive the passion necessary to win a presidential election. The base needs to be energized, and rallies do the trick. As these supporters feel the energy, they’re able to spread it. I hate to sound like Marianne Williamson talking about spirit and energy and other new age gobbledygook, but campaign passion is a real phenomenon that’s necessary to drive the base to do more than just vote. It mobilizes the campaign troops, so to speak, and fills them with the Trump juice the need in order to spread his message to friends, family, and even strangers.
The last president to win an election even though his base was not passionate was Lyndon B. Johnson. But like George H. W. Bush, Johnson still had a passionate base, just not for him. They loved John F. Kennedy just as they loved Ronald Reagan. Both Bush and Johnson won an election riding the wave of passion carried over from their predecessor. Neither won again.
Right now, there are two conflicting passions. One supports President Trump. One opposes him. But none of the candidates are generating enough passion on their own. If all they have is anti-Trump passion devoid of passion for the candidate, none of them have a chance of beating him in 2020. Right now, the only passionate support seems to be for Andrew Yang, and that passionate base is very small. All of the other candidates are still busy convincing people they can defeat President Trump while ignoring the need to drive passion about what they’ll do instead. Even the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-All, and gun control are only energizing the far left base. Every other Democrat is scratching their collective heads.
Let legacy media and the Democrats downplay the size of President Trump’s rallies until they’re blue in the face. It’s their mistake and as long as they think size doesn’t matter, they’ll continue down the road towards losing big time to the GOP in 2020.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
