 THE EDGE: RUBIO ROCKETS AGAIN POST-DEBATE  
Another debate and another big boost for Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in media mentions. Following the October GOP debate, Rubio posted the largest single gain of any candidate so far in The Edge. This week, he beat his own record.           The Edge is a one-of-a-kind measurement from the New Analytics Company that “scrubs” television, radio, print, internet and social media for mentions of the 2016 candidates. It is not a public opinion survey, but the team at New Analytics has built an unsurpassed tool to measure which candidates are driving the national discussion. The data are compiled into a single score and provided to Fox News First. You can view the full results here.           This week, The Edge measures how much candidates were being talked about before the debate compared to immediately after. Along with Rubio, others who saw their (not necessarily favorable) media mentions spike post-debate include Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.  -Fox News

 ROMNEYSIANS PLOT A LATE ENTRY FOR MITT   WaPo: “According to other Republicans, some in the party establishment are so desperate to change the dynamic that they are talking anew about drafting [MittRomney — despite his insistence that he will not run again. Friends have mapped out a strategy for a late entry to pick up delegates and vie for the nomination in a convention fight, according to the Republicans who were briefed on the talks, though Romney has shown no indication of reviving his interest.”   -Fox News

 WITH YOUR SECOND CUP OF COFFEE   Today in Literature: “On this day in 1797 William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge began a walking holiday in the Quantock Hills of Somerset [England], during which they would conceive ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.’ The original idea was to produce a gothic pot-boiler, something to suit the popular magazines, and to help pay for their vacation. ‘Much the greatest part of the story was Coleridge’s invention,’ Wordsworth later wrote, though among his own contributions was the idea that the inciting incident should involve the killing of an albatross in the South Sea, for which ‘the tutelary Spirits of these regions take upon them to avenge the crime.’ Wordsworth soon realized that ‘the style of Coleridge and myself would not assimilate,’ and left the fate of the ‘Old Navigator’ in his friend’s hands. Here it evolved from a quick money-maker to a consuming, five-months’ labor; and if pot-boiler on the surface, within lay many of Coleridge’s philosophical and psychological concerns, roiling up as ghostly vision, tortured soul and the need to expiate.”    -Fox News

 FBI investigates potential false statements in Clinton email probe  
Fox News: “Fox News is told agents are looking at U.S. Code 18, Section 1001, which pertains to ‘materially false’ statements given either in writing, orally or through a third party….In this case, legal experts as well as a former FBI agent said, Section 1001 could apply if Clinton, her aides or attorney were not forthcoming with FBI agents about her emails, classification and whether only non-government records were destroyed. It is not publicly known who may have been interviewed.”   -Fox News

 ‘Over 300 million Muslims are willing to strap a bomb to their bodies..."  {themuslimissue.wordpress.com} ~ Many polls and surveys indicate that the number of Muslims out of the estimated 1.2 billion people (some figures say 1.6 billion Muslims around the world) that are eager to kill unarmed people milling about leading their lives without posting any provocation or threat is far higher than 15-20%... Out of 1.2 billion Muslims a 15-20% willing to strap a bomb around their bodies that would make it 180-240 million Muslim suicide bombers. Or if we take the volume of Muslims often quoted by Muslims themselves, 1.6 billion, we have 249-320 million Muslims willing to strap a suicide vest on themselves to kill other people. Add to that all the Muslims who don’t want to be suicide bombers but nevertheless want to kill infidels, the numbers are staggering.       https://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2015/11/15/video-over-300-million-muslims-are-willing-to-strap-a-bomb-around-their-bodies-and-kill-people/

 Enabling Terrorism – Arrest nObama, hanoi-Kerry And Johnson  
{rickwells.us/} ~ Turn off your televisions, folks. You’re being domesticated and lied to... Nowhere on the mainstream media anyone addressing the real issues, the fact that vulnerabilities, gaping, cavernous holes are being created in our defenses and that we are being put into harm’s way deliberately and systematically by the criminals who have hijacked our government. They’re changing the subject, saying we stand with France, which means absolutely nothing. France won’t do anything, they’re still going to let the Muslim occupation of their country continue, at least the current government intends to. They’re pitching the same old worn out PC garbage of diversity as a benefit and tolerance as a virtue. Baloney, all of these problems started when America became an Islamic third world dumping ground. Diversity and tolerance are a message of domestication, an acceptance of a Balkanized minority-favoring society. This is America; we’re a Christian nation built by white men with the help of others. Those are the facts, like them or not and we did quite well for ourselves, for all Americans. We became blind to color and ethnicity because we were all Americans first. We’re inclusive because we choose to be, not because others demand that we be, but we’re selective.        http://rickwells.us/archives/22237

 nObama, not so secret servant of the Muslim Brotherhood  
{John Velisek USN (Ret)} ~ In 1953 during the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower, the Muslim Brotherhood began infiltrating the federal government... It is a scheme which has accelerated rapidly under Barack nObama, a willing partner and Muslim/Marxist whose anti-American agenda includes the creation of a caliphate in the U.S. In an outright display of support for the Brotherhood, nObama has refused to stem the infiltration of our nation by Jihadists. In fact, he has chosen to bring 100,000 to 200,000 Muslim “refugees” into the United States from Syria; refugees who can never be vetted    and whose numbers are comprised of some 85% males, aged 15-35.         http://www.coachisright.com/barack-obama-the-not-so-secret-servant-the-muslim-brotherhood/

 Watch How Hilly Responds When Asked..."  
{Oliver Darcy} ~ Preesidential candidate Hilly Clinton refused to use the term “radical Islam” at Saturday’s Democratic debate, just one day after the deadly terror attacks in Paris... “Marco Rubio, also running for president, said this attack showed that we are at war with radical Islam. Do you agree with that characterization, radical Islam?” the CBS News moderator asked. “I don’t think we are at war with Islam,” Clinton replied. “I don’t think we are at war with all Muslims. I think we are at war with jihadists.”

 Carrier USS Harry S. Truman to Deploy to Middle East   
{Sam LaGrone} ~ The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (CSG) — centered on nuclear aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-71) — is slated to depart Naval Station Norfolk on Monday... to join the U.S. led coalition against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL). The Truman CSG deployment will include guided missile cruiser USS Anzio (CG-68) and guided-missile destroyers USS Bulkeley (DDG-84), USS Gravely (DDG-107) and USS Gonzalez (DDG-66) as well as Carrier Air Wing 7. “While deployed, the strike group will serve in the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts,” read a Friday statement from U.S. Fleet Forces.

 On the Paris terrorist attacks  
{Danielle Pletka} ~ Terrorism has forced the world into the intolerable habit of gathering around our screens to witness the carnage of innocents... Each time we see it — in Paris now twice this year, in the Sinai, throughout Syria and into Iraq, in Mali, Algeria, Lebanon, Libya and beyond — there come almost immediately rote recitals of determination, calls for justice, paeans to the strength of the victims and their countrymen, and… failure. Yes, that’s what the campaign against Islamist extremists is: A failure. Because while successful campaigns result in casualties (though not normally among dozens of innocents in the streets of Europe), they also are on the pathway to “degrading and ultimately destroying” the enemy. And we are not on track to do that by any standard. The White House will claim that the death of Jihadi John and the retaking of Sinjar are somehow signals of the success of its policy. But events in Paris last night are not ISIS thrashing out in its death throes. Far from it.       http://www.aei.org/publication/on-the-paris-terroristattacks/utm_source=paramount&utm_medium=email&utm_content=AEITODAY&utm_campaign=111615

 French Bombs Isis Headquarters In Raqqa  
{Armée française} ~ The Isis command center, recruitment center, and their ammunition storage base, training camp, have all been obliterated according to Mickael Soria, the press adviser for France’s defense minister... ISIS has stationed Raqqa as their caliphate capital. It is known that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks on Paris. Such  crime was considered to be “an act of war” by France’s President.        http://godfruits.tv/french-france-bombs-isis-headquarters/?ref=11a

 Political Correctness allowing Radical Islam to destroy Western World 
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ “Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy, but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.”-Sun Tzu, The Art of War... Sun Tzu is credited with writing those words 2,500 years ago, but they could have been written as a warning to Western leaders as they refuse to acknowledge what we are fighting against, radical Islam. And allow me to suggest that it is this silly game of political correctness that is allowing the cancer of radical Islam to metastasize and spread terrorism throughout the world. Saturday evening’s Democratic Party debate displayed the full range of liberal thought on the war against Islamic terrorism; all three candidates refused to use the “R” word—radical Islam.        http://lidblog.com/avoiding-a-war-with-radical-islam-allows-them-to-destroy-the-west/ utm_source=The+Lid+List&utm_campaign=4537be6cc1RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_597b72c01c-4537be6cc1-291705165

 Texas warns nObama: No Syrian refugees here!  
{LEO HOHMANN} ~ Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas has become the latest governor to go on the record in no uncertain terms – telling President nObama his state will not accept anymore refugees from Syria in the wake of the Paris terror attacks... The GOP governors of Michigan and Alabama came out with similar statements Sunday, and Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson tweeted Monday that he is closing his state to Syrian refugees. Others like Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence announced they would suspend relocation of refugees in their states. An official in the office of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory told WND that McCrory was “working on coming out with a statement” on Syrian refugees this afternoon.        http://www.wnd.com/2015/11/texas-warns-obama-no-syrian-refugees-here/

The Myth of H-1B Job Creation
MICHELLE MALKIN

.
     {freedomsback.com} ~ Every day brings new headlines, ignored by the Washington press corps, of U.S. workers losing their livelihoods to cheap H1-B visa replacements.
.
     Just this week, Computerworld reported: “Fury and fear in Ohio as IT jobs go to India.”
.
     Yet, it remains an article of faith among Big Business flacks and Beltway hacks that H-1B not only protects American jobs, but also fuels miraculous job growth.
.
     The myths are recycled and regurgitated by the likes of Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who claims that “foreign-born STEM workers complement the American workforce, they don’t take American jobs.”
.
     Bill Gates, citing the National Foundation for American Policy, which is run by one-man Beltway advocacy research shop operative Stuart Anderson, testified before Congress that “a recent study shows for every H-1B holder that technology companies hire, five additional jobs are created around that person.”
.
     Citing another NFAP study by economics professor Madeline Zavodny of Agnes Scott College, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce asserted: “2.62 MORE JOBS are created for U.S.-born workers for each foreign-born worker in the U.S. with a U.S. STEM graduate degree.”
.
     But even the reliably pro-immigration expansionist Wall Street Journal had to call out Bill Gates on his misleading testimony to Congress regarding oft-cited NFAP job-creation figures. First off, the data set was confined to S&P 500 technology companies, which “excludes the leading users” of H-1B visas — offshore outsourcing companies from India such as Infosys, Wipro and Tata.
.
     Moreover, Carl Bialik, the newspaper’s “Numbers Guy,” reported that the study Gates cited to claim amazing H-1B job generation “shows nothing of the kind. Instead, it finds a positive correlation between these visas and job growth. These visas could be an indicator of broader hiring at the company, rather than the cause.”
.
     University of California, Davis professor Norm Matloff explained that Gates’ false conclusion is a common analytical error known as Simpson’s Paradox, “in which the relation between two variables is very misleading, due to their mutual relation to a third variable.”
.
     NFAP’s Zavodny study was published by the American Enterprise Institute, sponsored by open-borders billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Partnership for a New American Economy and touted by the open-borders U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the pro-H-1B FWD.us.
.
     Zavodny’s study initially examined data from the years 2000 to 2010. She hypothesized that states with more foreign-born workers would have higher rates of employment among native-born Americans. Initially, she was unable to find a significant effect of foreign-born workers on U.S. jobs.
.
     So what changed? In correspondence with John Miano, co-author of our new book “Sold Out” on the foreign guest-worker racket, and I, Zavodny revealed that when she showed her initial results to the study sponsor, the backers came up with the idea of discarding the last three years of data — ostensibly to eliminate the effects of the economic recession — and trying again.
.
     Voila! After re-crunching the numbers at the sponsor’s request, Zavodny found the effect the study sponsor was hoping to find.
.
     Standard research practice is to formulate a research hypothesis and specify a study sample before the analysis has been completed. The practice of “data dredging” — that is, tweaking the sample data until one gets rid of “anomalous results” — is frowned upon.
.
     To her credit, Zavodny provided her data to a curious software developer in Silicon Valley who was interested in immigration policy. The blogger, R. Davis, discovered a number of serious methodological deficiencies in Zavodny’s work.
.
     Most importantly, he documented that Zavodny’s results are highly sensitive to the date range selected. When she studied the years 2000-2007, she found 100 foreign-born workers in STEM fields with advanced degrees from U.S. universities were associated with 262 additional jobs for native-born Americans. But change the date range a little bit to 2002-2008, and the exact same regression model shows the destruction of 110 jobs for natives, according to the independent researcher.
.
     Also, Zavodny’s “262 additional jobs” factoid deals not with H-1B visa holders but with foreign-born workers in so-called STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) who have advanced degrees (that is, a master’s or doctorate) from U.S. universities. About 45 percent of H-1B visa holders do not have advanced degrees (as noted above), let alone advanced degrees from U.S. universities.
.
     According to public policy professor Ron Hira of Howard University, only 1 in 206 of H-1B workers at offshore outsourcing giant Infosys holds an advanced degree from a U.S. university. Even fewer of Tata Consultancy Services H-1B workers do — just 1 in 222. So there is almost no overlap between the highly educated workers in Zavodny’s “262 additional jobs” analysis and the mostly entry-level workers who actually come to the U.S. on H-1B visas.
.
     While industry lobbyists have to employ dubious and convoluted means to show H-1B creates jobs, it is brutally simple to show that H-1B workers take American jobs. Just ask the folks who trained their H-1B replacements at Disney, Southern California Edison, Toys R Us, Fossil and countless other companies across the nation.
