    Loved this special man for MANY years.. RIP Rush..!!!!!

    Rush Limbaugh Tribute

    In honor of Rush's life and legacy, share how the "Great One" impacted your life and our nation....

    Rush Limbaugh was one of the nation's leading conservative voices for more than three decades. He championed America's founding ideals of liberty and limited government like few talk-radio hosts ever. On Wednesday, February 17, at the start of "The Rush Limbaugh Show," his wife Kathryn announced that he died from lung cancer at the age of 70.

    We're saddened by his passing and what it will mean to the future of the conservative movement in America. But we are grateful for the decades that he served as such a strong voice for this great nation. Please join us in praying for his family and friends during their time of loss.

    (Grassfire President Steve Elliott's Tribute.)

    Please use this "Rush Tribute" to share how Rush impacted you personally and how grateful you are for the way he has impacted our nation.

  • Sign The Statement of Support Saying, "I'm Praying For The President, First Lady, Their Family And White House Staff"

    After the President and First Lady both tested positive for COVID-19, Mr. Trump spent three days at Walter Reed Medical Center receiving treatment. With his blood-oxygen levels normal and no fever, America's Commander-in-Chief made a triumphant return to the White House.

    But the President's doctor says Mr. Trump is "not completely out of the woods yet" and needs to be closely monitored in case his symptoms return or get worse. Also, several White House staffers and others close to the Trumps have tested positive for coronavirus. With less than four weeks until Election Day, the First Family needs the prayers of a faithful nation behind them.

    In response to the coronavirus outbreak and other threats to the President, First Lady, their family and staff, Grassfire is "doubling down" on our "I'm Praying" initiative. We now want 20,000 team members to add their names to our national Statement of Support. Stand with thousands of American patriots declaring, "I'm Praying For The President And The First Family"!

    When Grassfire reaches 20,000 "I'm Praying" signers, we'll deliver this Statement of Support to the White House. Please add your name below.

    Here's the Statement of Support:

    6,127 signatures

    President Trump... I'm praying for you and the First Lady. May God bless and protect both of you, your family and those closest to you, including your friends and staff at the White House.

  • Join thousands of Americans telling President Trump: "We love you!"

    The energy and enthusiasm surrounding President Trump's re-election is unprecedented. At recent campaign rallies, supporters have been chanting: "We love you! We love you! We love you!" Journalists who have covered politics for decades can't remember EVER hearing that kind of affection and appreciation for a candidate.

    Because COVID-19 restrictions are limiting large gatherings, most Americans can't attend a Trump rally. So Grassfire wants to give you the opportunity to join thousands of supporters who are telling President Trump exactly how they feel. Take action now by signing the national "We Love You, President Trump!" Petition.

    Simply complete the form below to let the President know how much you appreciate what he's done and will continue doing to "Make America Great Again!" After adding you name, please consider sharing this petition with your pro-Trump friends and family members, and urge them to sign, too. When we reach our goal of 10,000 signers, we will deliver your name to the Trump campaign.

    Tell President Trump:

    Mr. President,

    I'm one of the millions of Americans who is so thankful that God has chosen you to lead this great nation. I stand with them today in saying: "We love you!" In the fight against the radical Left, the Deep State, the D.C. Swamp, Establishment Republicans, NeverTrumpers, FAKE NEWS and the Hollywood "elite," you have done a tremendous job "Making America Great Again." I pray you have four more years to complete the amazing work you've accomplished by putting America First. Thank you for your service to the USA. May God bless and strengthen you in your re-election campaign and as you serve "We the People" as Commander-in-Chief.

    Sincerely,

    A Patriotic, Pro-Trump American

  • signed "Expose ObamaGate!" Petition 2020-05-28 14:33:46 -0400

    Sign The National "Expose ObamaGate!" Petition NOW!

    "ObamaGate" is a suspected Deep State conspiracy meant to take down President Trump! Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has promised to "get to the bottom" of possible corruption by members of the Obama administration. Based on sworn testimony and recently de-classified documents relating to the federal investigation into the Russian-collusion hoax, questions are swirling about the actions of the former president, members of his administration, the FBI, the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    Grassroots patriots MUST demand accountability from anyone involved in this "soft" coup d'etat against a duly elected president of the United States of America. For more than a year, Sen. Graham (R-SC) has promised to use the subpoena power of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee to call key figures to testify. On June 4, the committee is expected to vote on whether or not to give Graham the subpoena power needed to expose ObamaGate. The first witness in the Russia probe, former acting-Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, will appear before senators on June 3.

    Sign the national, "Expose ObamaGate" Petition and call on Senate Republicans to conduct a full investigation and to demand the prosecution of anyone involved in attempts to destroy President Trump. Grassfire wants to hand-deliver your signature and tens of thousands more to Sen. Graham and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on June 2. Take action now to add your name and make your voice heard!

    The "Expose ObamaGate!" Petition States:

    I'm calling on the Unites States Senate, especially members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to expose ObamaGate. Sworn testimony and recently de-classified documents relating to the federal investigation into the Russian-collusion hoax have revealed possible corruption by members of the Obama administration. ANY former FBI, DOJ and DNC officials involved in a soft coup d'etat against President Trump MUST be held accountable. They should be subpoenaed to testify under oath about their actions and, if appropriate, their actions should be punished by the Justice Department to the full extent of the law. Please respond to this petition by taking swift action to expose ObamaGate.

    Simply complete the form below to add your name to the national "Expose ObamaGate!" Petition. Grassfire representatives will hand-deliver your petition to Congress, as soon as we reach the important, 10,000-signature plateau.

  • signed "Censure Schumer!" Petition 2020-03-09 22:20:05 -0400

    Sign The National "Censure Schumer!" Petition NOW!

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) may have thought he was simply delivering an "applause line" in front of a "friendly" crowd of abortion supporters on the front steps of the Supreme Court of the United States on March 4, 2020. But, in fact, it was a totally inappropriate threat against two excellent and esteemed jurists: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

    "I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind," Sen. Schumer yelled. "And you will pay the price! You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."

    As a direct response to Schumer's hateful rhetoric, Grassfire is empowering our team members to call on Congress for the immediate censure of the Senior Senator from New York. His totally inappropriate verbal attack against the judicial branch, which exists to protect the rights of EVERY AMERICAN, demands a retraction, full apology AND his immediate resignation.

    13,037 signatures

    The "Censure Schumer!" Petition States:

    I'm calling on members of Congress to censure Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) for his appalling threats against two highly esteemed jurists for the Supreme Court of the United States: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. In fact, I think the Senior Senator from New York should resign immediately for his offensive, inappropriate verbal attack on members of the judicial branch.

    Americans are tired of the hateful rhetoric that has infected Congress and its so-called "leaders." The fact that it came out of the mouth of the highest-ranking Democrat in the United States Senate is especially troubling. The Senate Minority Leader knows better and should immediately retract his awful, threatening statements, personally apologize to the Justices and resign from the Senate. Please respond to this petition by taking swift action to censure Mr. Schumer and see him removed from office.

    Simply add your name to the national "Censure Schumer!" Petition below. Grassfire representatives will hand-deliver your petition to Congress, as soon as Grassfire reaches the important 20,000-signature plateau.

    Stand With The President And Support Life!

    Sign The Petition To "End Abortion In America"!

    Abortion is the scourge of our generation -- tens of millions of babies have been lost despite the overwhelming scientific and medical evidence proving that life begins at conception. Yet, eight states and Washington, D.C. have legalized abortion until the very moment before live birth

    Enough is enough! It's time for citizens to take a stand! Please sign the national petition to "End Abortion In America" now.

    By speaking at the 2020 March for Life Rally, President Trump proved he's one of the most pro-life presidents EVER. There has been no better time since the horrific 1973 Roe v. Wade decision for pro-life patriots to act against abortion!

    Please add your name and then share this petition with your friends and family members. When Grassfire reaches the important 25,000-signature plateau, we will hand-deliver your petition to congressional leaders. Add your name to the "End Abortion In America" national petition by completing the form below.

    21,711 signatures

    The Petition States:

    I'm taking a stand by signing the petition to "End Abortion In America." I am calling for Roe v. Wade to be reversed, and I support the confirmation of Supreme Court justices who will end abortion. I support any and all judicial and legal remedies that will declare abortion illegal and unconstitutional. I strongly oppose my tax dollars being used to fund any organization or entity that funds or provides abortion services. Finally, I am praying that God will remove the scourge of abortion from our land.

    Thank you for letting your voice be heard!

    D.C. Spending COLLUSION! GOP and Dems merging to support Big Spending and $1 Trillion Deficits! 

    Thank you for taking a stand on this critical issue! Republicans and Democrats are working together on a DIRTY DEFICIT DEAL that greatly expands government spending and creates $1 Trillion deficits for the foreseeable future -- with no real spending cuts! And not only have most Republicans been silent, they are COMPLICIT in the spending madness. As Rush Limbaugh noted, "Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore."

    This dirty deal will make the Spending Madness extend for years to come! Sign the STOP THE DIRTY DEFICIT DEAL petition!

    (The petition states)

    1,571 signatures

    I am outraged that Republicans and Democrats are joining together to pass the DIRTY DEFICIT DEAL -- a massive, debt and deficit ridden budget that adds an additional $2 trillion to the debt and creates annual deficits of over $1 trillion. I'm signing this petition to say STOP THE DIRTY DEFICIT DEAL! Congress must HOLD THE LINE on spending and balance the budget within five years.
