It got almost no reaction from the pro-LGBTQ crowd gathered for the first-ever hearing on the so-called "Equality Act"...
But I was floored.
Rep. Tom McClintock entered into the record a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) document indicating that the National Institutes of Health had approved lowering the age for children to be included in government-funded studies about gender transition hormones from 13 to 8. As in EIGHT YEARS OLD!
I asked the Congressman's office for the document, and they sent it to me. Here is the excerpt:Read more
URGENT GRASSFIRE CITIZEN ALERT:
Anti-Faith "Equality Act" Threatens Christian Citizens
TOMORROW, the Pelosi-led House Judiciary Committee will begin expediting through Congress a very dangerous bill -- wrongly named the "Equality Act" -- that pushes a radical LGBT agenda and effectively criminalizes Christianity.
This bill is not about "equality." It is about stripping away religious liberties and putting people of faith on the wrong side of the law!
The bill does not exempt churches, religious organizations, or Christian schools. In fact, this hostile new bill specifically forbids citizens or organizations from raising a religious free exercise claim as a defense against it!
Dr. James Dobson has warned that the anti-faith Equality Act "is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to finish off religious liberty in America once and for all, which ought to be plainly obvious based upon a cursory reading of the First Amendment." Dobson also added, "By creating a protected class of citizens out of the LGBT community, this bill places Christians who believe in traditional marriage at grave legal and civil jeopardy."

GRASSFIRE (March 19, 2019) -- We have the names of all 12 Senate RINOs who refused to stand with President Trump -- and sided with Democrats -- in the fight against illegal immigration. This "Dirty Dozen" tried to hide behind the Constitution when casting their vote against our Commander-in-Chief and in favor of a resolution of disapproval last week.Read more
Today's the day for GOP Senators to stand with President Trump! Grassfire has learned that the Senate convened at 10:00 a.m. ET this morning to begin considering the resolution of disapproval (H.J.Res.46) against America's Commander-in-Chief for declaring a national emergency on illegal immigration.
When we learned this, our staff sent an email to the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), asking what time a vote will take place. Forty minutes later, they replied that it hasn't been scheduled yet. But 21 minutes after that email arrived, we received another one from McConnell's office. It informed us that the Majority Leader WILL stand with the President today when the vote takes place. In fact, McConnell said this on the Senate floor just minutes ago:Read more
GRASSFIRE (Feb 27, 2019) -- Shockingly (or maybe not), Democrats blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) on Monday. Only three Democrats sided with Republicans in a 53-44 vote that failed to advance the lifesaving bill to the Senate floor. Two Republicans missed the vote due to flight delays and "Queen RINO" Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) didn't vote at all. Not that it really mattered, because those three "missing" GOP votes wouldn't have been enough to reach the 60-vote threshold needed in the U.S. Senate to approve any legislation.Read more
CBS News' chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan has some revealing things to say about the liberal media:
"Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that."
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!
