Skip to comments.Trump as Hercules Cleaning Out the Augean Stables

Last week in Viareggio, Italy, the citizens paraded with a huge float depicting President Trump as Hercules. Looking at his many accomplishments against countless enemies and political opponents, the depiction was not inapt. Like Hercules, he defeated the Queen of the Amazons, and this week, he's going on to clean out the Augean Stables. In this respect, he's aided by the utter stupidity of his opponents.
A. The Green New Deal
For decades now, under the guise of environmental protection, the far left has tied down America's economy. It's been largely gradual, hidden in fancy language and supported by those little harmed by these restrictions. Last week, freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose previous experience was bartending, and Senator Ed Markey, whose commercial experience before entering the political ring was driving an ice cream truck, proposed a Green New Deal. Without reading it, all or most (I can't keep track of all of them) of the announced Democratic presidential candidates endorsed it, to their subsequent embarrassment when the details they hadn't bothered to read became known. Ocasio-Cortez kindly provided a FAQ cheat sheet, which revealed how insane the plan was. When the details were known, she withdrew it, offering up various versions of why it wasn't the real Cliff's Notes of the deal.
In any event, taking advantage of the opportunity to put the Democrats to the test, Senator majority leader Mitch McConnell announced he'd bring the resolution to the Senate floor for a vote, at which time cosponsor Ed Markey accused McConnell of "sabotage" and trying to "silence" voters.

Great explanation of the national emergencies legislation. It should be repealed.
It gives the President far too much power.
Maybe the Congress can repeal it after the Republicans take back the house.
No way should a future Democrat president be allowed to exercise this much power.
Well, if Paul Ryan had done his job as Speaker (he did nothing that I can discern other than serve his Bushmasters in the corporate class and Establishment), quitting early to ensure that they got even more, we wouldn’t have to worry about the President exercising his emergency powers.
Feldman is an idiot. Trump was depicted as the God Emperor of mankind from the game WarHammer 40k.
Hercules? As the Germans say, mine arshe.
He needs to put down the Greek classics and get out of his ivory tower.
Would have meant more if he hadn’t signed the Rat open borders bill.
I suspect that if the Republicans win back the House, Speaker McCarthy is not going to be much of an improvement over Speaker Ryan.
“He” needs to...? Who “he”?
clarice feldman, may not be a he
Clarice Feldman is a she.
McCarthy is Ryan’s hand picked successor and was actually Boehner’s first choice to succeed him.
In todays culture you may be missgendering.
bump for later
In today’s culture it would be all to easy to mis-species.
Ummm . . . if you want to ridicule your target, its best not to make a ridiculous critique like that.Hint:In order to raise animals to produce meat and eggs you have to feed them. And you have to feed them more vegetable protein than you will have to substitute for the meat you dont eat.
Thanks for posting the pic.
