(John Hinderaker) Last summer, my friend David Lebedoff published a thriller titled Buzz, in which a terrorist group found a way to weaponize mosquitoes.

Meanwhile in Syria

(Paul Mirengoff) Who’s winning in Iowa? That’s the question of the moment. But it’s also pertinent to ask who’s winning in Syria. The answer is the very bad guys. Which very bad guys? It depends on the part of Syria in question. In the east, ISIS seems to be winning, happy talk from the administration notwithstanding. Show More Summary

Is Trump just “being himself” in skipping the Fox News debate?

Jeb Bush’s joyless campaign

(Paul Mirengoff) Before entering the presidential race, Jeb Bush said he wanted to run “joyfully.” And when Bush appears on talk shows, he seems sunny (especially for a candidate who is running, what, in the fifth place with about 5 percent support in the polls) and eager to talk policy.

Vacuous Vox Boxes Itself

(Steven Hayward) It was only a few days ago that I took note of the sorry Politifact people for jumping on Marco Rubio for supposedly distorting the role Ronald Reagan played in the denouement of the Iranian hostage crisis back in January 1981, and now Vox has weighed in also with the purpose of disputing Rubio and denigrating Ronaldus Magnus.
