As of 3:51 p.m., Brian Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall” Campaign has raised, thru its GoFundMe page, $20,572,372 of $1.0B goal. Screenshot below:
PROGRESSIVE REGRESSIVE FAIL:
Attempts to obstruct Brian Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall” Campaign is not going as Progressives would like it because Americans want border security. We want a border wall where none exists. What the left does not get is that this is about national security.
ORIGINAL POST PUBLISHED TO GRUMPY OPINIONS 1/13/2019:
The Progressive, correction REGRESSIVE agenda:
How Dare Americans Act to Secure Our Borders!
How Dare the President of the United States Act to Do the Same!
Not sarcasm: (a) Dismantle all efforts to make the wall, correction improved border security of which the wall plays a part a reality; and (b) destroy anyone who has designs on making it a reality by any means necessary
While several GoFundMe Pages have been launched by individuals, the purpose of which is to secure donations toward the construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, none have garnered nearly as much attention or support as that of Brian Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall’ Go Fund Me Campaign.”
As of this morning, Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall’ Go Fund Me Campaign” created December 16, 2018 has raised $20,405,395 of its $1.0B goal.
One can only surmise that Kolfage’s campaign is a threat to those who oppose a border wall, particularly since President Donald J. Trump has for several weeks sought funding for border security from Congress.
Thwarting the Border Wall, Trump, Campaigns to Build Wall and Brian Kolfage By Any Means
The usual suspects, i.e., the Communist media complex, NeverTrumpers, the Party of No, the Deep State and their globalist backers reported a few days ago verbatim that Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall’ Go Fund Me Campaign” had failed, it was over and that all monies collected was being refunded to donors of the campaign.
NOT TRUE. The usual suspects are pedaling FAKE NEWS, have declared war on Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran, Purple Heart recipient and the Campaign overseeing the campaign and who will in time will sever ties with GoFundMe.
For the record, Kolfage made clear from the inception of the campaign that “if we did not reach our goal we will refund donors.”
Enter Bobby Whithorne, director of North America Communications for GoFundMe and social justice warrior who emailed CBS a statement missed his goal and failed to abide by the rules (or something to that effect); therefore, all monies donated to the campaign would be refunded on April 11, 2018 one day after Buzzfeed’s attack on Kolfage.
Propaganda machine, BuzzFeed has launched a smear campaign against Kolfage. See their article, “I Felt Dirty”: Former Employees Of The Veteran Crowdfunding Trump’s Wall Say He Pushed Fake News To Get Rich.” Normally, I post excerpts when referring to articles but since BuzzFeed obliterated what little credibility it once had back in 2017, I won’t bother. Should you care to read the article, feel free to click on the link here.
The smear campaign against Kolfage is two years to the day that Buzzfeed released their very fake and equally salacious article entitled, These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia in which they published the infamous unverified Golden Shower dossier in a plot to destroy and take down now President Donald J. Trump. What a way to celebrate an anniversary.
Less than 24 hours after Buzzfeed wrote the article accusing Kolfage of pushing a “get rich” scheme, Bobby Whithorne in an email to CBS stated that GoFundMe would be refunding the donations.
…GoFundMe campaign to subsidize what it called “the Trump Wall” will refund all money to donors because it did not meet its $1 billion goal, said Bobby Whithorne, director of North America Communications for GoFundMe. Donors will receive their money on April 11, unless they choose to donate their contribution to the campaign creator’s new venture, GoFundMe said in an email to the campaign’s participants….
The refund announcement came a day after BuzzFeed News reported that Kolfage pocketed money in a previous GoFundMe campaign intended to help other wounded soldiers. Kolfage raised $16,246 for a veteran mentorship program, but BuzzFeed News reports that after collecting the funds, he didn’t use the money as promised: none of the partners he claimed to have worked with — including Walter Reed, Brooke Army Medical Center and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany — have any records that Kolfage worked with their patients or donated money, according to representatives at the centers that BuzzFeed News spoke to[…]
About GoFundMe’s intent to refund donors “on April 11, 2019” — Question(s): While it took and continues to take GoFundMe less than a minute to grab donations, i.e., $20,405,395 plus so far, it will take 1/4 of the year to issue refunds? Three months? Does that mean that GoFundMe as in “Cash Rules Everything Around Me” will collect interest on said donations in addition to securing its “fair share” of the pie? Or am I overthinking this?
END OF SIDEBAR
NeverTrumper websites also reported verbatim that GoFundMe was refunding all of the donations as in the case of RedState, who quoted the title from tweet posted by One America News.
As you can see above, Redstate chose to deceptively quote a portion of the tweet allegedly submitted by MAGA student. (???) They updated their article (lack thereof) by posting an update from Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall’ Go Fund Me Campaign” page, again verbatim.
“We Build the Wall” Campaign Remains an OnGoing Project Just Not at GoFundMe
The campaign to collect donations from Americans to build the much-needed border wall, etc. is still in gear except that eventually donations will cease going through Go Fund Me.
Disclosure: About two weeks ago, I donated to Kolfage’s “We The People Will Build the Wall’ Go Fund Me Campaign” . On Friday afternoon at 2:19 p.m., I received the following email from GoFundMe which I only noticed very early Saturday morning (links removed).
Dear GoFundMe Customer,
As explained in update #18 on the campaign, you have 90 days to let us know if you’d like your donation to be sent to the new 501(c)(4) organization: We Build The Wall, Inc. If we do not hear from you by April 10, 2019, your donation will be automatically refunded on April 11, 2019, as the specific plan for the use of funds raised on the campaign has changed from what was originally stated.
Please take action through the links below:
Yes, I want my donation to go to We Build The Wall, Inc.
Please refund my donation.
If we don’t hear from you, we will refund your donation on April 11, 2019.
Please do not reply to this message. If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center.
The GoFundMe Team
No problem, I re-directed my donation to the 501(c)(4) organization: We Build The Wall, Inc. as later confirmed by GoFundMe. In the meantime, Brian Kolfage who has been accused of changing the rules of the game is working overtime to update donors, refute allegations levied against him and at the same time respond to BuzzFeed’s smear campaign him. Immediately after Kolfage posts updates to the GoFundMe page, emails are dispatched to those who donated.
Endgame: An Attempt by the Left to Thwart Efforts by Americans to Build the Border Wall
If you have made a donation, see Kolfage’s latest update (excerpt below) or the email that you should have received from GoFundMe informing donors to opt-in or your donations will be refunded via GoFundMe on April 11, 2019 after GoFundMe has collected its share of the bounty. (Ah-hah! 2.9% and then some i.e., “+ $0.30 per donation”)

Eight days before Christmas I started this GoFundMe campaign because I was tired of watching the U.S. government’s inability to secure our southern border. Like most Americans, I see the porous southern border as a national security threat and I refuse to allow our broken political system to leave my family and my country vulnerable to attack.
The plan of action was simple and straightforward to raise money to construct a wall on our southern border. We have raised over $20 Million from 325,000 plus donors and we are only just getting started! I have been literally overwhelmed and inspired by the outpouring of support, calls, and emails from American citizens who support our efforts to Build the Wall. I got some hate as well but that was easy to ignore with all the positive feedback I was getting. I immediately sought out and consulted with some of our country’s leading professionals in law, politics, national security, construction, and finance. This team has spent countless hours over the holidays reviewing all issues pertaining to the construction of a southern border wall. Unanimously, we have all come to the conclusion that:
★ The federal government won’t be able to accept our donations anytime soon.
★We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border.
★ Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less time, and for far less money, than the federal government, while meeting or exceeding all required regulatory, engineering, and environmental specifications.
★ Our team strongly believes that we can complete our segments of the wall for less than half of the government’s estimated costs on a per mile basis.
