    Breitbart ^ | 02/05/16 | Matthew Boyle
    Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner who's polling ahead of all his opponents here in New Hampshire, told Breitbart News on Friday morning that America is in dire straits if voters don't elect someone president who can get the nation's immigration crisis under control. "If somebody great doesn't get in as president, we don't have a country anymore," Trump responded when asked by Breitbart News for his thoughts on recent congressional testimony by border patrol agents that the nation's immigration laws are basically nullified. "We're not going to have a country anymore." The testimony, as reported by the Washington...

    New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities. The Globe urges them to support John Kasich, whose record as governor of Ohio shows him to be a pragmatic, fiscally responsible executive, but one who is also concerned with helping the poor. His success in that important swing state, and his record as a moderate conservative who is willing to compromise in pursuit of results, suggests he...

    A Somali immigrant was arrested yesterday for hitting an MBTA bus driver and records show transit cops have locked him up three times for violent assaults in less than three years, officials said. Mohamed Noor, 29, of Brookline was arrested after he boarded a bus at about 12:45 a.m. on Commercial Street in Malden, but refused to pay the fare, police said. “The (driver) explained to Noor he would have to pay his fare or exit the bus,” police said in a statement. “Noor began to make verbal threats and insults towards the victim and in doing so placed other...

    America looks different in 2016 than it did the last time Hillary Clinton ran for president: The economy has come out of free fall, the military has left the quagmire of the Iraq war, barriers to equality have toppled, and universal access to health care has become a reality. Tumultuous as they’ve been, the Barack Obama years have proved transformative — and the priority for Democratic voters should be to protect, consolidate, and extend those gains.

    Workers from nine U.S. airports are planning to block bridges, march through terminals and protest at airline headquarters during a day of civil disobedience on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The workers - a mix of cleaners, baggage handlers, fuelers and wheelchair attendants - will risk arrest at airports and other locations including the Mall, to bring attention to their campaign for better wages, the Service Employees International Union said. The actions are the latest in the airport workers' campaign for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a benefits package and job protections. They're also protesting threats against their efforts to unionize....

    Sunday night's presidential debate should be the most closely watched meeting of the party's candidates this year. But once again, thanks to the Democratic National Committee"s schedule, debate viewership will not be even close to what it could have been. **SNIP** But not only will this debate air at 9 p.m. on Sunday, in the middle of a three day weekend, but it will also run during National Football League playoff games and - dare we say - a new episode of PBS's popular series, "Downton Abbey."

    The US Supreme Court rejected on Monday an appeal from a pro-Israel group seeking to place ads on the Boston-area mass transit system, AP reports. The ads are sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), also known as Stop Islamization of American, and they describe the Israel-Palestinian conflict as a war between the "civilized man and the savage." The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) initially rejected the AFDI ads, asserting they could be construed as "demeaning or disparaging" to Palestinian Arabs and Muslims. ...

Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) and first reported on by the Washington Free Beacon, affirms the Senate's belief "that the United States must not bar individuals from entering into the United States based on their religion, as such action would be contrary to the fundamental principles on which this Nation was founded." The language was offered in response to recent comments from a presidential candidate who called on Muslims to be barred from...

    A veteran MBTA bus operator has been suspended while transit police investigate an incident captured on video that appears to show the driver attacking a rider who threw a drink on her while leaving the bus. Transit Police are working to identify the woman who assaulted the bus operator, MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said of the video, which has been posted online. The woman was upset because the bus operator had asked her to pay the bus fare. Its unclear why the woman felt she didnt have to pay.

    Heres a fun one for all of our beloved gun owners out there. Boston just reinstated its Your Piece for Peace gun buyback program this past Wednesday, despite the fact that the tally this year has amounted towait for itone single firearm. Thats a massive undercut from 2014s intake of 410 guns. Theres no question why the total number is down: The gun buybacks numbers clearly arent on the same level as the guns taken a year ago, police spokesman Officer James Kenneally said. According to him, though, the program's lack of success isnt enough to shut it down: As...

    Curt Schilling took on the Internet and the entire Muslim world on Tuesday and lost. Badly. The two-time National League strikeout king took to Twitter to voice his concern over Islamic extremism. He posted a photo of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler with the words, It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go? The 48-year-old also tweeted, The math is staggering when you get to true (numbers). Schilling, who won three World Series championships during his 20-year MLB career, deleted the post after 10 minutes. Currently working with...

    After more than four years as an intern-turned-employee at this great outlet, I am now writing to inform you that today is my final day at Townhall. As such, this will by my final post as a member of the Townhall editorial team. I am not leaving, however, because I have suddenly grown angry or cynical about politics as usual – although it is hard not to become cynical at times. It comes with the territory. On the contrary, I have relished and cherished my time here, and thus will deeply miss the people with whom I’ve worked for so...

Walsh said yesterday, hours after the city was hit by two shootings in a span of five minutes that left three young men dead — one of them the nephew of a Boston
