Build the Wall GoFundMe is starting to dry up.

Over the first five days, it brought in about 15.5 million. On day 6, it brought in about 700K. Over the last 24 hours? 300K.

Could be that it's almost Christmas and people are doing other things. Or, as I tend to believe, everyone who was really enthusiastic about the wall donated right away because they were excited. Now that they're done, there's nobody left and it's drying up.

5. Indicative of the true percentage of people who are

still in the tank for him enough, to give him a dollar.
The internet isnt reflective of the true size of his following. They're mostly paid russians. Imagine 50 years hard labor in a gulag in Siberia...breaking rocks and forced to make 250 posts a night on every forum America uses. All for a crust of bread and some polonium water.
I remember the 'feel' of a paid poster as far back as 2001. Pretty sure back then it wasn't the reds though.

7. What, did the computer programs of Sheldon Adelson and the Mercers run out of names?

I can't imagine they sat at their laptops and made them all up one by one.

9. I am hoping we find out who is behind that, and raking up the money.


Actually, I suspect it is " John Barron".....nudge nudge wink wink.

10. I doubt we will, but I'm betting there are less than fifty people who contributed over $20

The rest were probably made-up or taken at random from the Chicago or L.A. phone books. $20 million is pocket change to people like Adelson and the Mercers.

18. One spot of cheer....


When I think of how many hundreds of rich right wing Trump buyers have lost good money on their "investment"....

On a more pleasant note.....hope you and yours are having a very good holiday.

19. We did, thanks!

Everyone is scattered to the four winds now. Mom in law is back in her village in the northwest. Daughters, boyfriend (Germany) and baby granddaughter are on their way down to the Lake of Constance, and fiancé to the other daughter is on a plane form NYC to Zürich, where he will rent a car and drive up to Germany and join the others before they all drive off for a couple of days of skiing in Austria while my wife and I head for South Carolina via Paris and Atlanta in about 3 hours.

There is never a dull moment, believe me!

Hope yours was somewhat more tranquil!

11. That's what I think GFM should do.

 

Keep the cut, refund the rest, bill the cut & service fees to Kolfage and finish the refund.

12. Maybe some of the high school magats ...

Figured out that $5 million is not 50% of 1 billion but rather 1/2 of 1% and that it’s going to take a gazillion years to reach $1billion, much less the $30 billion needed to build the fucking wall.

14. Here's one big contributor

Yelm resident J.Z. Knight is apparently a supporter of one man’s campaign to raise $1 billion in private donations to build President Donald Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

On Thursday, a “JZ Knight” donated $10,000 to the GoFundMe campaign called, “We The People Will Fund The Wall.”

Knight claims to channel the spirit of a man named Ramtha who lived more than 30,000 years ago. She runs a school in Yelm that purports to pass on his teachings.

Only three other donors gave more money than the $10,000 for the the wall campaign, which organizer Brian Kolfage says will be donated to the government.


And from an earlier article:

Ramtha predicts Trump will receive the protection of UFOs while flying in his jet: “And the first time he looks out the window … when he sees two silver disks as escort, he is going to know it all — and this is a man who is not afraid — he is going to know it all.”

20. I thought they raised 50% of their goal of $1 billion.

If I recalled it was $50 million and they were saying they were at 50%. Not good at math.
