    At the rate it's increasing, it could hit 10 million by tonight if it gets a bit of publicity. Go Wall!

    The SJWs tried to stop the GoFundMe Wall effort and in backfired. The backlash forced them to put the page back up and exposed another of their attempts at political oppression.

    That is what's in the back of my mind. The donation amounts are not large. Wait until the hitters come in at a Grand a pop. Rush, Hannity, Levin, and Savage could lay out some serious money. A hundred grand from each would be nothing. They would get that back from advertiser in no time.

    I suggest you call your Congress Representative and Senator and ask them to donate. Let the bells of freedom ring in their ears.

    Border fence in Israel cut illegal immigration by 99 percent, GOP senator says
    Need an example of a border wall that works? Look to Israel, President Donald Trump has repeatedly said.

    Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., echoed the idea during a Feb. 3 CNN interview, claiming that a border fence in Israel has drastically cut illegal immigration along its southern border.

    Our ruling
    Johnson said Israel cut its illegal immigration rate by "99 percent" by constructing a 143-mile fence along its southern border.

    Israeli government data support Johnson’s statement.

    https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...ration-99-per/








    Chairman Johnson Releases Report On Israeli Homeland Security and Applicable Lessons for the United States
    Key Findings of the report:

    - Israel constructed a fence along its border with Egypt in approximately two years.

    - Israel spent $415 million ($2.9 million per mile) to construct a 143-mile fence on its border with Egypt. The United States has spent $2.3 billion to construct 654 miles of pedestrian and vehicle barrier fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, averaging about $3.5 million spent per mile—representing a 21 percent higher cost per mile than Israel.

    - Israel spends approximately $8.3 million annually ($58,000 per mile) to maintain its 143-mile fence bordering Egypt. The United States spends $50 to $55 million annually ($77,000 per mile) maintaining its 650 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico—33 percent more than Israel.

    - Israel stations approximately one person for every 1.2 miles of fencing along its border with Egypt. The United States stations approximately 1 person for every 2.2 miles of its border with Mexico.

    - The number of illegal crossers on the Israel-Egypt border dropped after the construction of the fence, from more than 16,000 in 2011 to less than 20 in 2016—a 99 percent decrease.

    The report can be found here:

    I just sent President Trump an update on Brian Kolfage Go Fund the Wall. Along with a Merry Christmas. President Trump has done more for Vets in 25 months than what has been done in the last 25 years. Heck we can even wash our hands at the VA with both hot and cold water. Under Bam only cold.

    We got your back on this one President Trump.

    I'm surprised Go Fund Me hasn't pulled his campaign.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

All you folks that have been bah humbugging Trump are finding out that we DO still support our President and if Congress doesn't they can be removed or shown to be the cowards they always have been.......
    This is part and parcel of what I was trying to get across the other day when everyone was ragging on Trump and I asked that member what they were doing to help Trump. It really does start with we the people!

    There's also the issue of the monarch butterfly sanctuary that's being threatened by said wall.

    The government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different.

    Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.

    As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.

    I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it's time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.


    • How will we get the funds to the right place? We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all the funds will go upon completion. When we get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping.

    • Republican Representative Steven Palazzo of Mississippi is introducing legislation to direct the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds which would allow us to fund the wall with this method. This is just one option, there are others on the table being discussed.

    • 100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall.

    • We are working with a law firm on a legal document that will bind the government to using the funds for the border wall itself, nothing else.

    • We will hold all funds and not release a single penny until we have all legal aspects covered to ensure our money goes only to the wall.

    • If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny. We are working on a time frame to achieve.

    LET'S GET THIS WALL BUILT! And make America Safe Again!

    I just jumped on board with my offering. Not in the neighborhood of the 'Highest' donations thus far, but well above the current average. If it fizzles . . . so what, I'm on record as trying.

    FYI - CNBC is running an article on the fundraiser today. LOTS of people checking that, given recent market activity today and the past couple weeks.

    It will likely hit the MSM airways at the 6 pm news, given Trump isn't going to sign the funding bill - without wall funding. Those parts of the gov not already funded, will shut down at midnight tomorrow, unless a deal is reached before then. Given the related newsworthiness (is that a word?) of the fundraiser, it'll at least get a mention during that coverage.

    If the goal is reached, and adequate guarantees are provided that the money WILL go the wall; I think there'll be a way for the gov to accept the donation and make it happen. Might set precedent; I don't recall anything like this in the past... but where there's a will there's a way. Yeah, it'll likely conform to gov contracting regulations.

    The political part of this fundraiser, and where the numbers will send a message to congress critters of all stripes, is in the number of people donating; how much is raised in a short amount of time. They keep pushing their social-marxist BS on the country, or fighting against Trump's agenda and I dare them to TRY to imagine what else can be organized to "contain" them, before they can wrangle tv airtime to whine about unfairness or brag about how patriotic they are.

    Maybe if they just look at what they've tried to exhort their own loyal cadres to... they'll start to get a clue.

    U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo said Monday he is introducing the “Border Bonds for America Act of 2018,” which would allow Americans to purchase revenue bonds to help finance construction of a wall between the United States and Mexico.

    “During World War II, 85 million Americans purchased $185 billion in war bonds and financially supported our troops while they were defending our country,” Palazzo said in a written statement. “This legislation would allow for the patriots of today’s era to help support American security in the same way as previous generations.”

    Yes, I have a bunch of thoughts on this fund drive that I'm not able to pull together at the moment. I like the bonds idea the best, there's a lot that could go right and a lot that could go wrong. I think what I like best about this is this is sending a loud message to congress who needs to do their damned jobs.

    Rush has mentioned it. Scanning radio stations in the car, almost powered through it - but heard enough to put it out here.
    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace .

    Actually, it's substantially different. The Washington Monument repair didn't have every Marxist in the country (and in congress) against it. They (the Marxists in congress) will try to "Kavenaugh" any attempt to use those funds. Remember, delay, delay, delay...
