WASHINGTON: In two days, just under 10,000 Americans raised $588,130 dollars to help pay for the wall. Donation range from $5 to hundreds. In the last minute, donations of $5, $10 (x3), $20 and $25 have added $80 to the fund. In under four days the We The People Will Fund The Wall has raised over $12, 259,249. That was over an hour ago. Now it’s at $12,519,919. By the time this publishes, it should be over $13million dollars.
If Congress refuses to help President Trump keep his promise, Americans will by putting their money where their mouth is, saying we will raise the funds if Congress refuses.
While the number is in dollars, what it really represents is America’s voice and votes.
The fund seems to be adding more than $100,000 every hour ($12,259,240 / 96 hours equals $127,792. 29) At this rate, the fund will reach $1 billion in less than two months. These donations have been made by over 200,000 people so far
According to Bustle (How Many People Voted In The 2016 Election? – 11/9/2016):
As of 3:30 p.m. ET, with the majority of results counted, Hillary Clinton had received more than 59,600,000 votes and Donald Trump had received more than 59,400,000 votes, meaning a grand total of at least 119,000,000 people voted in the 2016 election.
Thus meaning that only a small portion of those people that voted for Trump are so far donating to the Go Fund Me. Additionally, according to Kolfage, it is not just conservatives and republicans donating, he is receiving a significant amount of donations from Democrats as well.
The Go Fund Me account, started by former USAF veteran and wounded warrior Brian Kolfage, should embolden President Trump to hold his position, shut the government down and demand the Congress do their job.
Senator Chuck Schumer call it Trump’s Temper Tantrum, but it is not.
Chuck Schumer, rheumy eyes looking over magnifying glasses perched on the end of his thin nose, is failing to see the truths. Possibly he needs to push them up on his nose so that he can see that:
- He, Senator Schumer, Pelosi and then Senator Barack Obama all called for enhanced border security.
- In September, President Trump told the Congress that he would not sign another bill that did not contain funding for a full border wall.
- Schumer whines that Trump did not spend the money already allocated to border security. Schumer fails to understand that tossing pennies at a ten dollar problem does not solve the problem
- President Trump offered Democrats a deal on DACA far sweeter than Dems demanded as long as the wall and border security were enhanced to stop more illegals entering the US.
Democrat’s feckless, false narrative is about nothing but politics and power
Democrats, favoring politics over people, ignored a January 2018 CNN Poll saying that finding a DACA fix was more important to blocking illegal immigrants entry. The President previously offered a DACA fix in exchange for a $25 billion border wall last March.
However, a year later, with the Democrats screams of “what about the children” fading away as no longer politically prudent, DACA is barely mentioned in a current news search.
The bottom line is that Democrats will not give Trump a Wall victory. And they do not want to be held accountable for the shutdown. Though the President has accepted responsibility for the shutdown, there is little doubt in anyone’s mind that the Democrats are behind the shutdown.
It is the Schumer Shut Down Re-Deux.
Trump is seeking a fraction of an original $25 billion demand made last March.
What the media and politicians are forgetting is that Trump has moved on this issue. Has compromised on this issue. It is Democrats who, desiring an open border that will lead to new voters via amnesty type citizenship, who have created and continue to acerbate the miseries of which we suffer.
They call them Angel Moms
They are the people who are tired of an open border over which drugs, child trafficking, and illegal immigrants are flowing. The people who have lost loved ones to the criminal element.
President Trump brought Angel Moms, and Dads, to the campaign arena stage. These are the parents who lost a family member. Most often a child, to criminal illegal immigrants. Vox coverage of one of those rallies introduced us to Trump’s Angel Moms:
A line of bereaved parents and relatives, their shirts plastered with the faces of lost loved ones, lined up behind him. Trump stood aside as one by one the parents — “angel moms” — shared stories of losing a son or daughter to an “illegal alien.”
“My son Ronald da Silva was murdered April 27, 2002, by an illegal alien who had been previously deported,” one “angel mom,” herself an immigrant, said. “And what makes me so outraged is that we came here legally. Thank you, Mr. Trump. I totally support you. You have my vote.”
“My cousin Rebecca Ann Johnston — known as Becky — was murdered on January the 1st, 1989, in North Little Rock, Arkansas,” another woman said. “If you don’t vote Trump, we won’t have a country. Trump all the way.”

Gustavo Garcia – departed twice, back in America killing Americans
These families were impacted by criminal illegals like Gustavo Garcia who just went on a murder rampage in Visalia, California. Garcia is one of many criminals who has illegally crossed the border. According to ICE, Garcia was deported from the U.S. in 2004 and in 2014. Garcia spent 27 months in federal prison for re-entering the country before being deported again in 2014.
According to the Tulare Country sheriff, Gustavo Garcia, 36, was arrested yesterday. A after a caller told police Garcia was acting strange in public and police determined Garcia was under the influence of a controlled substance. Immigration Customs and Enforcement had issued a detainer on Garcia. However, due to Sanctuary laws, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office was unable to hold him.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux says
“The state law is missing a component and that component is us working together with our immigration enforcement and customs agency, that tool has been removed. … That tool has been removed from our hands and because of that our county was shot up by a violent criminal,” Boudreaux said.
According to an ICE spokesperson:
“This deadly rampage could have been prevented if ICE had been notified of his release. This is an unfortunate and extremely tragic example of how public safety is impacted with laws or policies limiting local law enforcement agencies ability to cooperate with ICE.”
According to Fox News, the Government Shutdown means:
“With the current 60-vote threshold, the House-approved bill is unlikely to advance out of the Senate – and a government shutdown looms.
About one-quarter of the government would be affected in a shutdown. Nine of the 15 Cabinet-level departments will shutter, along with dozens of agencies. Those departments are: Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, State, Transportation and Treasury.
Essential personal would still be required to work but without pay. Nearly 90 percent of the Homeland Security staff is deemed essential.
With the Interior Department shuttering, national parks and forests would likely close. This could impact the traditional Bracebridge Christmas dinner at Yosemite. During the government shutdown in January, the Interior attempted to make parks still accessible, but it’s unclear if it will do that again this go round.
More than 380,000 people would be furloughed in the shutdown – meaning they would experience a temporary leave from their work. This would include most of NASA, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Commerce Department and National Park Service workers. Additionally, about 52,000 IRS workers would be furloughed.”
