A message we sent you on Friday really struck a cord with our team members. So, we want to make sure a busy weekend didn't keep you from reading it.
The email focused on an iconic scene in one of the greatest Christmas films of all time... "It's a Wonderful Life." After Twitter's and Facebook's latest social-media censoring came to light, Grassfire employees were reminded of how often we feel like George Bailey battling the evil Mr. Potter.
But just like in "It's a Wonderful Life", Grassfire knows that -- in the end -- we can count on friends like you for help. Please see below for the full story.

One of the best scenes in the classic film "It's a Wonderful Life" is when George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) takes on Mr. Potter. The greedy miser, played very convincingly by Lionel Barrymore, runs most of fictional Bedford Falls, New York -- including the local bank.
After the death of Peter Bailey, George's father, Potter suggests dissolving the Bailey Building & Loan. Why? Because the longtime, family-run business is his direct competitor. Like any good son should, George defends his dad and his humble, honorable legacy.
"You're talking about something you can't get your fingers on, and it's galling you," he insists. "This town needs this measly one-horse institution if only to have someplace where people can come without crawling to Potter."
If you've ever watched the perennial Christmas favorite, that confrontation is hard to forget. (See it here.) Grassfire staff members were reminded of the scene last week, after Twitter AND Facebook revealed their blatant, censoring double standard -- again.
Like Bailey Building & Loan, Grassfire is a family-owned business with only a few employees. But each one is fiercely dedicated to defending America's founding principles of life, liberty and limited government. Our mission is to REPORT TRUTH and empower you to TAKE ACTION on key issues of our day.
As a small, media company that provides grassroots-activism services to our team members, we face our own "Mr. Potters." The social-media censoring of a bombshell New York Post article -- and the silencing of conservatives who shared it -- helped Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. (Note: The New York Post, America's fourth-largest newspaper, is STILL locked out of Twitter for refusing to take down the article. They haven't been able to tweet since October 14. That's FIVE days ago!)
It's not the first time these Big Tech, social-media giants have done this. Many critics of Twitter and Facebook were quick to point out that this kind of "shadow banning" and outright censorship has become common place on the social-media platforms. They also insisted that it seems to happen ONLY to conservatives.
The Wall Street Journal called it an "unprecedented speech blackout," adding: "The political actions taken Wednesday by Twitter — and to a lesser extent Facebook — went far beyond normal content moderation."
Grassfire has spent years fighting against the censorship of conservative speech and ideals. You could call us, "Grassfire Building For Liberty." We're confident America "needs this measly one-horse institution if only to have some place where people can come without crawling to" Twitter and Facebook.
If you believe in the mission and work of Grassfire, we're asking you to prayerfully consider helping us remain a VOICE FOR TRUTH amidst the tidal wave of Big Tech CENSORSHIP on social media right now.

Before November 3, we want to launch new initiatives that empower our team members to push back against Big Tech's blatant censorship and possible election interference. If you can help Grassfire amplify YOUR VOICE, we'll continue fighting for your right to be heard on Capitol Hill and beyond.
By special arrangement, we acquired a limited quantity of collectible "TRUMP 2020" coins. These unique presidential keepsakes are a great way to show your family and friends that you want "FOUR MORE YEARS!" of our Commander-in-Chief's "Make America Great Again" agenda.
While these unique commemorative coins have no cash value, one side features an image of President Trump with the words "Liberty," "In God We Trust" and "2020." The opposite side is emblazoned with the presidential seal and "Donald Trump 45th President of the United States." Each one comes in a protective plastic case, which makes them perfect to carry with you and share with family members and friends.
If you can support Grassfire with a contribution of $30 or more to help us fight back, we'll send you three "TRUMP 2020" Coins. (Contribute $20 to receive one "TRUMP 2020" Coin.) We'll cover shipping and handling. Go here to request your "TRUMP 2020" Coins when you help Grassfire today:
