Too many people — particularly political journalists — simply do not seem to understand that outside Trump, the Republican Party is not controlled by lawmakers as much as it is controlled by media personalties such as Hannity, Limbaugh, Levin, Beck, Carlson, Ingraham, etc.

A big reason GOP lawmakers cave to Trump and do his bidding is because the entire political universe in which they operate in is governed by people who have willingly decided to serve as his propagandists. If you play along, you're rewarded. If you don't, you're attacked.

If impeaching Trump would "further divide the country," as Republicans claim, then what did the GOP think challenging Biden's election win would do?

Arizona GOP censures Cindy McCain
The Maricopa County GOP has voted to censure Cindy McCain, with the full Arizona GOP scheduled to vote on the censure resolution on January 23rd.
They charge that she had the gall to defend her husband, Senator John McCain, from Trump.
They also say she’s a drug addict and a radical liberal in disguise who supports “globalist” (aka Jewish) policies. ...

they still voted to object to the results of an election that was proven, repeatedly, to be free and fair.

'The American Abyss,' Timothy Snyder's op-ed in the NYTimes is scary accurate, and pulls no punches
American historian Timothy Snyder is the author of On Tyranny, a slim volume from February 2017 that presaged what we could expect from the Trump administration as it became obvious almost immediately that the forthcoming four years would be among the most tumultuous and stressful this country had ever experienced. For those who have yet to read it, it describes, in twenty separate segments, what we must expect and how we must contend, cope with, and combat tyranny, incipient fascism and proto-fascism of the Trump variety.

On Saturday the New York Times published a lengthy opinion essay by Snyder, titled ‘The American Abyss’. It is probably the single most cogent reflection thus far on the meaning of what we witnessed this week that you are likely to read, possibly even throughout the coming year (although the year, of course, is young).

Snyder begins by explaining some basic truths about how Trump operates and how he fits in to what Snyder refers to a post-truth, pre-fascist continuum in America’s political structure.

More importantly, he illustrates how the Republican Party has, both before and after Trump’s election loss and the subsequent violence of January 6th, essentially divided into two separate factions—those who seek to game the political system for their own ends to maintain power while paying lip service to democratic principles (the Mitch McConnell wing, which he refers to as the “gamers,”) and those who seek to overthrow—or “break”-- our democratic system of government altogether (the “breakers” wing such as Cruz, Hawley, and others of their ilk). ...

... After reading Snyder’s essay (and again, those four paragraphs can’t do it proper justice) I was left with the strong impression that the path that Republicans choose to pursue over the next four years will make or break this country’s future as a democracy. And that, in turn, will depend on whether Republican voters will ever accept that they were lied to by Donald Trump.

Trump’s insurrection wreaks havoc on the Grand Old Party
Republicans have been torn apart by the events of the past week with no clear path forward

... A civil war has opened up within the party between Mr Trump’s defiant loyalists and a growing cast of critics, and between Republican lawmakers and their disillusioned corporate donors. The party is split on whether to engage with the incoming administration of Joe Biden or obstruct it.
Adding to these dilemmas is the question of the party’s relationship with Mr Trump and his family once he leaves office. Members of the First Family have repeatedly threatened to crush any Republican who did not support the president’s efforts to overturn the election.
The conservative electorate, meanwhile, remains in lock-step with the outgoing president. According to a snap YouGov survey released on Thursday, just 27 per cent of Republicans considered the attack on the Capitol a threat to democracy, while 45 per cent of them approved of the storming of the halls of Congress....

... Senior Republican lawmakers who tolerated, collaborated and heaped praise on Mr Trump over the years have suddenly turned on him, including Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, and Paul Ryan, the former House speaker. Meanwhile, John Boehner, who led the Republican-controlled House of Representatives during Barack Obama’s term as Tea party lawmakers laid the groundwork for Trumpism, issued his own call for change.
“I once said the party of Lincoln and Reagan is off taking a nap. The nap has become a nightmare for our nation. The GOP must awaken,” Mr Boehner wrote on Twitter. “The invasion of our Capitol by a mob, incited by lies from some entrusted with power, is a disgrace to all who sacrificed to build our Republic,” he said.

But whether the Republican party can use the opportunity of Mr Trump’s downfall to unite around a return to its earlier days is questionable. ...

Remember the Republicans who stood by Trump as the Capitol was mobbed
Remember, too, the ones who are trying to rewrite history. As the resignations pour in, note that it only took a violent attempted coup in which four people died for these people to see the light

Three major corporations say they will stop donating to members of Congress who tried to overturn the election
... The mob was summoned and whipped into a frenzy by Trump, who still maintains he won the election and relentlessly pushes baseless allegations of fraud. But none of it would be possible without the complicity of certain Republican members of Congress. January 6 is normally of no particular significance in the process of selecting a president. Congress opens up some envelopes and confirms the winner, who was already determined by the meeting of the Electoral College in December.

But there were 147 Republican members of Congress, including eight Senators, who objected to the certified results of the Electoral College in one or more states. The participation of these members of Congress convinced millions of people that it was possible that, on January 6, the results of the election could be overturned and Trump could be installed for a second term. This was a lie, but tens of thousands of people showed up in Washington D.C. anyway.

Before the riots began, 14 Senators said they planned to join the objections for one or more states. But eight Senators — Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Rick Scott (R-FL), Roger Marshall (R-KS), John Kennedy (R-LA), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) — followed through with their objections when the Senate reconvened after order was restored. As the world watched in horror, these Senators carried through with their plans to validate baseless allegations of fraud and undermine the democratic system.

The Kansas City Star said that Hawley had "blood on his hands" and should resign. The Houston Chronicle said Cruz's "lies cost lives" and called for his resignation. ...

U.S. Capitol siege a 'wake-up call' for democracies, top EU diplomat says
The European Union’s top diplomat said on Sunday that last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol exposed the dangers of allowing the degradation of democratic values to go unchecked and disinformation to spread on social media.

“What we saw on Wednesday was only the climax of very worrying developments happening globally in recent years. It must be a wake-up call for all democracy advocates,” EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said in a blog post.

“Everybody needs to understand that if we accept setbacks after setbacks, even if they seem minor, democracy and its values and institutions can eventually and irreversibly perish,” said Borrell, who speaks on behalf of the 27 EU member states.

Sasse says Trump was 'delighted' and 'excited' by reports of Capitol riot
“As this was unfolding on television, Donald Trump was walking around the White House confused about why other people on his team weren’t as excited as he was as you had rioters pushing against Capitol Police trying to get into the building,” Sasse told conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt in an interview. “That was happening. He was delighted.”

Republicans’ Ominous Warnings About Donald Trump Haunt Them In CNN Supercut
“Before they were sycophants, they were psychics,” said “Newsroom” anchor Brianna Keilar.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Monday rebuked the Republicans who condemned Donald Trump during his 2016 election campaign, but went on to enable his dangerous behavior that culminated in last week’s Capitol riot by a violent mob of his supporters.
The “Newsroom” anchor aired a supercut of old footage in which prominent Republicans ― including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany ― slammed Trump before he became president.

Keilar then noted that “all of those Republicans went on to broadly support or to work for Donald Trump’s administration, ignoring his nods to extremists, acting like they didn’t see his tweets, playing whataboutism with liberals instead of acknowledging the uniquely troubling nature of President Trump.”
“All of that emboldened him to fulfill the predictions of those very Republicans who sounded the alarm on Donald Trump and then pretended for years that it wasn’t going off,” she added.

Growing GOP problem: Powerlessness
Republicans are losing power where power matters most at the national level: in politics, media, technology and the workplace.

Why it matters: Republicans often felt mistreated when they had real power in the form of the presidency and Senate. Watch Fox News or listen to Ben Shapiro, and you will see and hear how this new isolation will feed Republican worries and grievances in the months ahead. ...
