Triple-Amputee Vet Is Raising Money To Build Trump’s Wall

Published

on

Brian Kolfage, joined the Air Force after almost 3000 Americans were killed in the September 11, 2001 terror attacks that also destroyed the Twin Towers in New York City.

On September 11th, 2004, exactly 3 years to the day since the 9/11/01 attacks, a 107 mm rocket landed feet from Airman Kolfage. He lost both of his legs just below the hip and his right hand. Doctors didn’t expect him to live or walk again, but he did.

After almost a year recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Kolfage walked out of the facility.

After graduating from college as an architect, Kolfage became interested in news publishing and began managing pages on Facebook for news websites. He also started his own coffee company, Military Grade Coffee.

Airman Kolfage is now raising money to build Trump’s wall. Kolfage literally began fundraising to build the wall on Monday, and in a few hours had raised over $22,000. On Tuesday, over $300,000 had been raised. On Wednesday, over $2 million had been contributed, and by Thursday morning, $5.4 million had been raised for the wall as word spread of the wounded veteran’s effort.

This is from Kolfage’s fundraising page:

“My name is Brian Kolfage, I have a verified blue check facebook page as a public figure and I’m a triple amputee veteran.

Like a majority of Americans, we elected President Donald J Trump 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.

“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.

Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victory. They’d rather see President Trump fail than see America succeed. However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.

This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!

Where the money will go? We are reaching out to the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all funds can be sent to. When we get this information secured we will update.

100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall… If for ANY reason we don’t reach our goal we will refund your donation.

We are working with a law firm on a legal document that the government will sign and be held to only 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.

LET’S GET THIS WALL BUILT!

Brian Kolfage Jr”

Federal Judge Rips IBWC During Hearing Over Construction Of Our Second Border Wall

Published

on

...

* By

The International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) has made it clear that they don’t like us, or that we’re securing our border by building walls. The IBWC is half controlled by Mexico. We have to get permission from them to build if we construct the wall near any waterways connected to Mexico. They’re making us jump through hoops that they haven’t made anyone else jump through. The federal judge ripped into them for that today. If you recall, the IBWC tried to stop us from building a gate at our first border wall in New Mexico because it ended at a dam on the Rio Grande River. We got the job done, though. This case will end the same way. We’ll get our wall in Texas built!

“McAllen, Texas — Despite District Court Judge Randy Crane’s befuddlement over the International Boundary and Water Commission’s (IBWC) treatment of Fisher Industries, contracted by non-profit We Build The Wall to construct a border barrier in Mission, TX in the Rio Grande Valley, the group still won’t be able to build for at least another week.

“I’m concerned that different people are being treated differently,” Crane said to Dr. Padinare Unnikrishna, the IBWC’s Chief of Engineering Services.

Unnikrishna testified for the federal government against Fisher Industries Friday in a hearing that was supposed to decide whether a previous injunction levied by the court would be lifted, allowing the group to build a crucial 3.5 miles of border wall in an area highly trafficked by cartel members and illegal border crossers. The venue for the hearing is the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Despite Fisher Industries’ compliance with every demand made by the IBWC, and the fact that the IBWC appears to be putting Fisher Industries through the ringer, the court was still bound by The Treaty of Nov. 23, 1970, which gave power to the IBWC to make the final say on who and what can be built in flood plain areas of the Rio Grande Valley.

After coddling by the federal government’s attorneys, Unnikrishna was torn to shreds by Fisher Industries’ lawyers, and eventually Judge Crane himself. Two main topics were at issue: why Fisher Industries was required to provide 1D and 2D environmental impact models for the IBWC to examine when other private organizations have not had to jump through such hoops, and why the IBWC seemingly delayed notifying Fisher Industries of those requirements for more than one month.

“No private organization has ever been required to [provide 1D and 2D models to the IWBC], to the best of your knowledge?” Crane asked Unnikrishna incredulously.

Unnikrishna couldn’t point to a single example, though he said it was common for government organizations like U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide such information to the IBWC.

Crane pushed, demanding to know what guidelines the IBWC uses to decide what environmental modeling it requires of builders in flood plain areas. He asked about a local shopping mall, which apparently did not have to provide 2D modeling to the IBWC. Then he asked about local residents who build structures or fences on their own property, and whether they had to provide such environmental impact modeling to the organization. Unnikrishna couldn’t define the parameters, eventually agreeing that he does not know “where the line is drawn” by the IBWC.

Intermittently, Crane questioned Unnikrishna about his dealings with Fisher Industries.

Fisher Industries met with the IBWC in El Paso, TX, on Oct. 3, to discuss proposals for a border barrier at the current job site. It wasn’t until more than a month later, in mid-November, that the IBWC told Fisher Industries it would have to provide them with the environmental impact modeling. By that time, land was already being cleared, and the federal government sought an injunction against Fisher Industries and We Build The Wall. The latter organization was eventually dropped as a defendant in the case. Judge Crane seemed perturbed, noting that Unnikrishna and the IBWC likely knew Fisher Industries’ intentions to build a bollard wall on the land, and thus should have informed them of the requirements to build such a structure.

The totality of the testimony was quite suggestive, painting the picture that the IBWC might intentionally be building its own barriers to purposefully slow or halt Fisher Industries’ progress on securing the border at its current job site.

Judge Crane called it a potential due process issue, but was forced to defer to the Treaty, which only allows for building in flood plain arears once the IBWC signs a letter saying building is permitted. After a half-hour recess during which attorneys for all parties were called to Crane’s chambers, Fisher Industries decided to save its witnesses for a continuance hearing next Thursday. The temporary restraining order was upheld, though some land-clearing orders were modified.

The IWBC, which is half-controlled by Mexico, and half-controlled by the United States, has not exactly been friendly to Fisher Industries or We Build The Wall. Combined with the local social justice brigade, the private organizations looking to close the border for the good of the American people have been met with stiff resistance.

Also party to the lawsuit are the National Butterfly Center (NBC), a nature preserve run by an avid leftist by the name of Marianna Trevino Wright, and a second private company, Neuhaus & Sons. Part of the North American Butterfly Association, NBC owns property near Fisher Industries’ worksite, which is on land owned by Neuhaus & Sons. It is concerned with the environmental impact that a wall would potentially cause, and Friday called a witness to testify about those concerns.”
