UPDATE: Thanks to Amy Herz Juviler for this update: Trump went to Camp Davidto plot war plans for Afghanistan.
Tomorrow is Donald Trump’s last weekend in Bedminster, in his favorite self-named golf course, from which he has spent the week degrading the presidency itself. Gonna wave him bye-bye, bigly. Want to tell you about plans in 4 places for tomorrow:
This is a week to show up! Bring signs! Members of all many of the resistance groups have helped to organize all this – among them New Jersey Resistance, Indivisible, Action Together, Progressive Hunterdon Democrats, We the People, and Evict Trump-Kushner. I am assuming all are rain or shine [Partly cloudy, mid 80s is forecast]. Donald Trump has spent the last week of his extended golf vacation illustrating precisely his failure to understand basic American history, and a complete inability to distinguish right from wrong. He demonstrated, twice this week, his willingness to coddle anti-Semite Holocaust denier David Duke happy, while feebly trying to make the case that “both sides” are responsible for what organized white supremacists marching through the streets carrying Nazi flags and shields, shouting “Jew will not replace us!” have wrought in Charlottesville.
Bedminster: The Original People’s Motorcade
When: Saturday: Convene 9:00 am, proceed together past golf course,
Where: Convene at Ten Eyck Park at 9AM [GPS address: 1005 Route 28, Branchburg – map]. No Hate Rally follows after the Motorcade – at Clarence Dillon Public Library 11:00 am [GPS address: 2336 Lamington Rd, Bedminster – map]. This is the ongoing weekly event that has been going on throughout the summer.
Colts Neck – Motorcade Outside Trump National Golf Club
Meet: Visitor Center parking lot at Dorbrook Recreation Area on Route 537 [GPS address: 209 Route 537]
When: Saturday 10:00 am. At about 10:45 am, the vehicles will line up and begin the Motorcade:
The Route: The route cars will follow was worked out with local officials, for as little inconvenience to the public as possible. It will follow a route past the golf course several times.
Jersey City – Get Outta Jersey: Trump Eviction Notice Rally
When: Saturday 11: am
Where: 88 Morgan Street, Jersey City
More detail: Donald Trump left his Bedminster golf course this week. Evict Trump-Kushner plans to give him a grand send-off, Jersey style, by serving him an eviction notice from the people of Jersey City.
The specific issue for this event: The American people have no record of foreign entities staying at Trump hotels. The Trump and Kushner families continue to create deals in foreign countries while using the name and influence of the American government. The American taxpayers deserve nothing less than transparency and ethical practices by any member of the Trump administration or family, though the line between the two is quickly dissolving. This demonstration aims to call the public’s attention to the many abuses of power and unpopular policies pursued by this president and his administration, and to seek change in order to restore our American values.

Atlantic City – We Need More than Empty Words
When: Saturday 10:30 – 11:30 am
Where: 2225 Boardwalk, Trump Plaza, Atlantic City

Here are some more actions planned for this weekend:
August 19, 12 noon, Say No to White Supremacy, Quaker Meeting House, 225 Watchung Ave., Plainfield
August 19, Fascists are holding a “Free Speech Rally” at Boston Commons. There will be a counter demonstration. If you go, please be brave, careful and peaceful and only act DEFENSIVELY and NON VIOLENTLY. DO NOT BE PROVOKED. THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT. Have your phone charged and take video. Don’t go alone. Go with people you TRUST to handle themselves well.
