The viral GoFundMe campaign to build the wall is only 4 days old. Yet, it’s fast approaching the $12M mark.
One extraordinary veteran decided he’s had enough of congress fighting Trump. Promises made need to be promises kept.
And people like Brian Kolfage don’t just cast votes. They take action. And while Kolfage’s action is motivating hundred of thousands of people, the mainstream media is intimidated.
Now they’re trying to interfere with the power of the people. Enter Tony Romm.
According to his by-line bio, Romm is a technology policy reporter at The Washington Post. For the past eight years, he’s been covering the intertwining of big tech companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook and government regulations. But gone are the days where reporters, well, reported.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Objectivity is a lost art. And Romm proved that with his Twitter rant.
As the Gateway Pundit explains:
Romm tweeted Thursday about his attempt, writing, “So there’s an effort on GoFundMe to raise cash money for a border wall. Has more than $5M in donations (seeking $1B) and claims to have contacts in the Trump admin (have asked for more). But it got me thinking: is that, like, allowed on the site? (1/3)”
“GoFundMe terms prohibit attempts to raise cash money rooted in “intolerance of any kind relating to race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender or gender identity, or serious disabilities or diseases,” among other limits (2/3)”
“So I asked GoFundMe if this wall fundraiser violates that. Spox: “This campaign does not violate our terms of service. The funds are safely held by our payment processor and we will work with the organizer to transfer funds” or return them if target isn’t met (3/3)”
Romm then asked if it were even legal for the wall fundraisers to talk to the Trump administration, “this was my next question — how does that work, and what about the contention in the pitch itself that there are convos with Trump admin officials? are they allowed to have those convos?”
Obviously, everything about this campaign has liberals running scared. Now, they’re so upset that Trump might be able to fund the wall that they will insinuate it’s being done illegally.
However, this isn’t the first time private citizens funded a government project.
As we reported yesterday:
In July, 2012, a billionaire businessman, David Rubenstein, pitched in $7.5 million to help repair the Washington Monument. So it is possible for private citizens to fund government projects. However, this goes way beyond the dollars.
Clearly, the real fear lies in what this means for the 2020 election. If Trump mobilized a grass roots army that can raise $5 billion, he’s definitely here to stay. And that’s not the answer leftists want to hear.
Understandably, the people want a President who keeps his promises, but what boggles the mind is the idea that people are willing to put their own dollars behind the man they chose.
Gandhi once said: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Well, is there anyone who can deny that’s happening now? I’m not aware of any other time in history when the American people got together on such a massive scale to pay for the changes we want to see in our government.
Trump Won’t Back Down
Perhaps it’s so easy to get behind Trump because we know he won’t back down. For once, we really do have a leader who isn’t here for personal gain. Which is why Nancy Pelosi and her minions are shaking in their shorts.
A government shutdown is looming. Democrats Senator Maizie Hirono of Hawaii, doesn’t even know how to save face at this point.
First, Hirono decided all men need to “shut up and step up” when it comes to accepting the falsified charges of sexual harassment. Then, she actually said democrats don’t connect with voters very well because they’re so much smarter than the rest of us. But she really takes the cake with her latest headlines.
According to USA Today:
Hirono criticized Trump’s repeated defense of his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. Trump made that announcement yesterday but double-downed today following criticism from both sides of the political aisle.
Hirono called the decision a “Christmas present” for Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as Iran. She went on to say changes to asylum rules at the border could make things unsafe for people seeking help.
But it was on the subject of a possible government shutdown where she really let loose.
“Any effort on his part to blame the Democrats is such bulls–t that, as I said before, I would hardly be able to stand it.”
Hirono definitey found her 5 minutes of fame for the remark, but I think we all know where the bullsh-t really lies. Let’s just hope no one steps in it while building the wall.
