Private Border Wall Fundraiser Under Criminal InvestigationBrian Kolfage, the right wing grifter who started the fundraising effort to have Trump supporters build the border wall, is now under a criminal investigation, according to reports. His group, We Build The Wall, has raised millions of dollars for their project, and the state of Florida is investigating whether they are misusing those charitable funds. This isn’t the first time that Kolfage has hoodwinked donors, but now it appears that his grift may be over. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2019/08/private-border-wall-effort-now-under-criminal-investigation/ Become a member today!: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWIEbibRcZav6xMLo9qWWw/join Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

If you want to follow the link and go check it out. I suggest everyone does. But here is this story in a nutshell. You remember us talking about Brian Kolfage, right? A disabled military veteran who decided that he was going to start a charity, a go fund me and build that border wall because the Democrats aren't ever going to fund it. And he raised well over $20 million and we told you at the time that Mr. Kolfage actually does have a history of ripping off charities, starting these little groups saying he's going to give them money to this group. And then he never gives the money to the group. The guys at Grifter, he's a fraud basically. Well now his little, we fund the wall or we build the wall. Charity is under criminal investigation in the state of Florida where Mr Kolfage is based. Here's what's happened that we know of so far. Um, because reporters actually tried to reach out to law and law enforcement officers here in the state of Florida, but they could not comment on it because it is an ongoing investigation, but we do know a few things that they're looking into. First and foremost, the fact that they think this charity has misspent one point $7 million on non charitable items. Basically spinning them on political things. Now maybe that has something to do with the event they just hosted that featured Donald Trump jr Louie Gohmert and Corey Lewandowski. That seems like it was more political than charitable, don't you think? I mean after all you do have members of the Trump administration and of course one of the dumbest members of Congress available, Louie Gohmert that was purely political, but they use their charitable funds for that and you cannot do that. There's also the issue of Chris Kobach who happens to be running for Senate and also happens to sit on the board of directors and also happens to be the lawyer for we build the wall and what's happened is that a Kobach is actually triple dipping here because not only is he getting paid just to be a board member for we build the wall, he's also using their resources to help reach out to donors for his senate campaign. You can't do that. Again, this is a charity, this is a political thing. You cannot share these donor lists. You cannot use their information, the phone numbers, the addresses. You can not do that. It is illegal and yet according to the a investigations, that's what they believe Kobach is doing. And because Kobach happens to be on the board of directors of the charity and the candidate himself, this is not just Kobach doing something illegal.

Media LOSES IT Over Bloomberg 2020Former NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is preparing to enter the 2020 presidential race. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and Maz Jobrani, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. MORE TYT: https://tyt.com/trial Read more here: https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/07/bloomberg-preparing-to-file-for-alabama-presidential-primary-000322 "Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to file paperwork to qualify for the Democratic presidential primary in Alabama, ahead of a Friday deadline. The move would be a first step toward a national campaign, though Bloomberg has not made a final decision to run. "We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated — but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that," longtime Bloomberg aide Howard Wolfson said in an email. "If Mike runs he would offer a new choice to Democrats built on a unique record running America’s biggest city, building a business from scratch and taking on some of America’s toughest challenges as a high-impact philanthropist."

Trump Jr. Compares Himself To Fallen SoldierWhat was Don Jr. thinking when he wrote this? Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and Maz Jobrani, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. MORE TYT: https://tyt.com/trial Read more here: https://www.thedailybeast.com/donald-trump-jr-says-visit-to-arlington-cemetery-made-him-think-of-familys-business-sacrifices?ref=home “Anyone would find it hard not to be moved by a visit to Arlington Cemetery, the final resting place of hundreds of thousands of American troops dating back to the Civil War. Donald Trump Jr. had his own revelation at the military cemetery, according to his new book. In Triggered, the president's oldest son wrote that, when the first family visited the cemetery to watch his father lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns, it made him think of all the business “sacrifices” they had to make in their dad’s quest to become president. He wrote that he “rarely get[s] emotional, if ever,” but seeing the graves made him feel the “importance of the presidency and a love of our country.” He added: “In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we’d already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed—voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were ‘profiting off the office.’” The comments have provoked outrage among military veterans. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), who served in the Iraq War, has responded, saying: “Sacrifice is only a word to the Trumps.” Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Maz Jobrani Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Maz Jobrani *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
