Opinion | Republicans have only themselves to blame for Madison Cawthorn

Opinion | Republicans have only themselves to blame for Madison Cawthorn

It was quite a month for young Madison Cawthorn.The 26-year-old Republican congressman from North Carolina was caught bringing a through airport security, his second such incident. Police released of him getting pulled over for driving with expired tags and being told to surrender his revoked license. The Washington Examiner allegations against him of insider trading. Politico published of him partying while wearing women’s lingerie. And a former congressional aide a workplace complaint against him.Most public figures would call a stretch like that good reason to resign. Cawthorn might just...

Opinion | Republicans aren’t fighting Democrats. They’re fighting democracy.

Opinion | Republicans aren’t fighting Democrats. They’re fighting democracy.

Opinions (James Yang for The Washington Post) By On the conservative Bulwark this week, two admirable never-Trumpers marveled at what has become of the Republican Party since President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the election. “I am a little amazed by the willingness to go just authoritarian, to really go anti-democratic,” Bulwark editor-at-large Bill Kristol said. Columnist Mona Charen was likewise puzzled. “The attraction of authoritarianism, I don’t know, Bill,” she said. “I’m really at a loss.” And I’m at a loss to understand their confusion. The Republican Party’s dalliance with...

Opinion | Trump left them to die. 43 Senate Republicans still licked his boots.

Opinion | Trump left them to die. 43 Senate Republicans still licked his boots.

ADIn the end, the darkest truth of Donald Trump’s crime came to light.As his marauders sacked the Capitol on Jan. 6 in their bloody attempt to overturn the election, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy called the then-president and pleaded for Trump to call off the attack.Trump refused, essentially telling McCarthy he got what he deserved. Trump was, in effect, content to let members of Congress die.That damning account, in a Friday night from Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.), a Republican who defended Trump during his first impeachment, momentarily threw the Senate’s impeachment trial...

Opinion | The ‘civil war’ for the soul of the GOP is over before it began. Trump won — again.

Opinion | The ‘civil war’ for the soul of the GOP is over before it began. Trump won — again.

Opinions (James Yang for The Washington Post) By The supposed civil war within the Republican Party is over. The neo-Confederates have won. Just three weeks ago, congressional GOP leaders set out to reclaim their party from President Donald Trump and his violent supporters. Trump had frequently emboldened white supremacists and domestic terrorists, but never more visibly than when he recruited and incited those who on Jan. 6 — and then did nothing for hours as they rampaged, hunting for lawmakers, in hopes of overturning the election. From that deadly spree emerged a glimmer of hope that...

Opinion | Trump is gone, but Marjorie Taylor Greene is keeping up the cult

Opinion | Trump is gone, but Marjorie Taylor Greene is keeping up the cult

ADPresident Biden had been on the job for not quite 28 hours when Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, announced in a from the Capitol basement, sans mask, that she had “just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden.”She these articles “on” him based on things he years before becoming president, because his very “residing in the White House is a threat to national security.”Republicans love to say that Democrats were out to get Donald Trump from the start because one of their members, Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.), first filed...

Opinion | Biden will offer ‘unity’ and healing. But first we need the truth.

Opinion | Biden will offer ‘unity’ and healing. But first we need the truth.

ADOutside a Capitol ringed by 25,000 troops to guard against more violence by Trump supporters, President Biden will deliver an inaugural address at noon Wednesday billed as a “” and of healing.It is a noble sentiment. It is exactly what so many Americans want to hear. But it’s not what the country needs to hear — and it won’t work.There can be no unity without truth. There can be no healing without accountability.The outgoing president incited a failed coup d’etat. For hours, he declined to call off his supporters as they , leaving five dead and forcing lawmakers to hide in fear of...

Opinion | What is Arizona’s GOP doing to recover from defeat? Attacking Cindy McCain.

Opinion | What is Arizona’s GOP doing to recover from defeat? Attacking Cindy McCain.

ADIf you were holding out hope that Trumpism might end with Trump (oh, my sweet summer child), please allow me to present Exhibit A: the Republican Party of Arizona.You might think the state party would be chastened. Republicans in the state just lost a second Senate seat, leaving them without a Republican senator for the first time . (In a dubious first, the party’s nominee, Trump-tongued Martha McSally, managed to lose both seats in back-to-back elections.) The state also went for Joe Biden, for only the second time in 72 years.Next, two prominent officials in the Arizona GOP, Reps. Andy...

Opinion | We’ve finally identified the source of fraud in the 2020 election. It’s Ron Johnson.

ADFinally, significant fraud has been identified in the 2020 election. It is being perpetrated by Sen. Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin.President Trump lost the election. He lost the recounts. He lost the vote certifications, by Republican and Democratic officials alike. He 59 of 60 court cases. He lost the electoral college vote. His own attorney general “we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome.”But Johnson forges ahead with his fraudulent attempt to undermine the election — and the credibility of elections in the United States generally.Though...

Opinion | Biden’s win brings new hope for peace deals with Denmark and Canada

Opinion | Biden’s win brings new hope for peace deals with Denmark and Canada

ADI sensed it the moment I heard President-elect Biden Tuesday that “America is back.” Our long and bitter struggle with the Kingdom of Denmark may soon be coming to an end.It has been more than a year since President Trump that Greenland should be American, and demanded that the Danes sell him the territory. Then Trump a meeting with the Danish prime minister because she said Greenland wasn’t for sale.You don’t have to be Inuit to intuit that there hasn’t been such geopolitical tension in Greenland since .Soon, too, the United States may be able to negotiate a lasting peace with our...

Opinion | Trump came in promising so much winning. He’s going out with so much whining.

Opinion | Trump came in promising so much winning. He’s going out with so much whining.

ADIt’s all over but the pouting.Back during the Florida recount in 2000, George W. Bush loyalists made T-shirts altering the Gore-Lieberman logo to say “Sore-Loserman.” But “sore loser” doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum President Trump has performed to assuage his narcissistic injury. Trump-Pence has become Rump-Nonsense.Trump lost the 2020 election itself by more than , four percentage points, and an electoral vote margin his own team called when he was the victor in 2016.But that’s just the beginning of the losing.He has lost dozens of legal rulings in multiple states. He has failed...
