GRASSFIRE -- Republicans and Democrats have reportedly come to terms on a spending bill that could avert another partial government shutdown at 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday. But the budget deal, as it stands now, is likely to be a huge disappointment to President Trump and his supporters. According to The Associated Press, the "still-secret agreement" provides less than $1.4 billion to build just 55 miles of new border barriers:Read more
GRASSFIRE -- Another partial government shutdown is now less than five days away. If Democrats and President Trump can't agree on border-wall funding by midnight on Friday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be furloughed or forced to work without pay -- again!

Pro-life Americans across the country are shocked and outraged by the recent passing of a New York law effectively legalizing abortion until just before birth. Other states' willingness to join the Empire State on the infanticide bandwagon has fanned the flames of controversy, keeping this life-or-death issue at the top of the headlines.

GRASSFIRE (Jan 31, 2019) -- Now that New York state has passed a law effectively legalizing abortion until just before birth, other states are jumping on the infanticide bandwagon. A state legislator in Virginia has proposed a bill that would allow abortion, in her words, "through the third trimester... all the way up to 40 weeks."

GRASSFIRE (Jan. 29, 2019) -- Millions of Americans were shocked when New York state passed a law effectively legalizing abortion during the full nine months of pregnancy, right up until the moment of live birth.

On their website, pro-life Live Action says those other states with "barbaric abortion laws" are Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont.Read more
Here's what the New York Times learned from this week's media fiasco surrounding the Covington High School kids...
It's time to target Christian schools!
The lesson wasn't that journalists shouldn't jump to conclusions, or pre-judge a situation, or wrongly stereotype a teenager because he is wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat. No. The lesson the New York Times learned is that we must double down in our attacks on Christian schools.
NYT "reporter" (in actuality, an "opposition researcher") Dan Levin was put on assignment on a story to "expose Christian schools." So he sent out this tweet:Read more
