    The fact that America’s national security is being sacrificed by radical federal courts should spur Congress to act, says a conservative member of Congress. Appearing Sunday on Fox News, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, remarked on how political correctness helps foment terror attacks like Saturday night’s tragedy in London — and how similar thinking in the United States judicial branch ought to be dealt with in light of the Constitution. “There’s been a lot of P.C. here that has caused us problems,...

    Normally, when a bipartisanly disliked and distrusted public administrator is removed from office, one would imagine that there would be some semblance of consensus – or, at least, consistency in how the news would fall. However, we find ourselves in the midst of the Trump administration, and consensus and consistency – even on political no-brainers – must always bring outrage from the opposition.
