Trump has set Republicans up to fail in Georgia

In keeping with its surreal qualities, 2020 won't really end in December.

Abandoned churches left to decay

Across Europe, hundreds of churches that were once filled with worship and song are now at the mercy of the elements. With religion's role declining sharply around the continent in recent decades, the most promising outcome for many of these centuries-old structures is being reincarnated as residential or commercial properties.

Opinion: Crushing the pandemic could pave the way for Biden's bold agenda

President-elect Joe Biden has a tough road ahead. He lost valuable time during the transition as a result of President Donald Trump's refusal to acknowledge the outcome of the election.

Bill Barr has sounded the death knell on Trump's wild claims

If you're President Donald Trump, when Attorney General William Barr tells you it's over -- then it's over. Barr's statement to the Associated Press Tuesday that "to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election" should be a death-knell for Trump's effort to conjure a false narrative that the election was stolen from him.

Opinion: The only way Republicans can lead again

President Donald Trump is conducting an all-out assault on our democracy. There is no other way to look at this. The President lost the election and his legal team has failed to produce evidence of voter fraud. So now President Trump is attempting to convince state legislatures to overthrow the results. Voters made their decision, and yet he wants to force a different outcome. His attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is spewing the kinds of conspiracy theories that even conspiracy theorists shy away from.
