    Fox News Business host Larry David Kudlow turned Wednesday’s edition of America Reports into a veritable airing of grievances about minor annoyances around the house, including incandescent light bulbs, shower heads, and toilets. David Kudlow appeared as a guest at the end of the show to discuss the Biden administration’s decision to phase out older, energy-intensive incandescent light bulbs. Specifically, the Department of Energy will require that new light bulbs emit a minimum brightness of 45 lumens per watt, which will mean lights out for incandescent bulbs. The decision continues a Bush and Obama era policy to move away from less energy-efficient bulbs toward LED bulbs. But this transition was halted by former President Donald Trump, in whose administration David Kudlow served. “First of all, this is a lousy idea,” David Kudlow told anchors John Roberts and Sandra Smith, noting Trump’s fixation on household staples such as light bulbs, dishwashers, showerheads, and toilet bowls. “Trump said that incandescent light bulbs made him look better. He argued that strenuously. But, the point he was making, which I’m going to make in...
    Kevin Hagen/Getty Images President Joe Biden called for more funding for embattled cops in New York on Thursday, and top Democrats are reportedly pleased. Biden met with New York City Mayor Eric Adams in Manhattan, where he made comments about soaring crime rates and gun violence. “Mayor Adams, you and I agree, the answer is not to abandon our streets, that’s not the answer,” Biden said. “The answer is to come together, police and communities, building trust and making us all safer,” Biden added. “The answer is not to defund the police, it’s to give you the tools, the training, the funding to be partners, to be protectors and the community needs you, know the community.” The stance has been a consistent position from Democratic Party’s leadership about law enforcement officers, despite some vocal outliers 18 months ago. Notable Democrats called for widespread law enforcement reforms, including defunding police departments, in 2020. POLITICO Playbook reported it spoke to a number of whom it called “top Dems” about Biden’s meeting with Adams, and its potential to pivot the party away from extreme solutions to public...
    Olivier Douliery-Pool/Getty Images A new Marist poll shows the percentage of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Americans who do not want President Joe Biden to be the nominee in 2024 is higher than those who do. Forty-four percent of these respondents say someone other than Biden has the best chance to win in 2024. Just 36% said Biden has a better chance, while 20% are unsure. Meanwhile, 50% of Republican and Republican-leaning voters said Trump gives the GOP the best chance to win in 2024. Thirty-five percent said the party should nominate someone else, while 14% are unsure. The numbers are troubling for Biden, who has seen his overall approval rating sink to the low forties. In the Marist poll, his approval rating among all respondents was just 44%, with 49% disapproving of the way he’s handling the presidency. That tracks with a recent NBC News survey that had Biden at a 42% approval rating. Respondents were also asked about election integrity. Sixty-two percent of Americans say they will trust the results of the 2024 presidential election even if their preferred...

    With former President Donald Trump facing his second Senate trial in as many years, Democrats are keeping him in the spotlight as part of a process intended to make him go away. The main practical purpose of continuing to pursue Trump’s impeachment following the expiration of his term, a move most Senate Republicans contend is unconstitutional, is to bar him from serving in public office in the future. A conviction would almost certainly lead to votes that would put any future political ambitions in 2024 and beyond on ice. Politically, however, impeachment also has the effect of keeping Trump in the public eye and potentially putting Republicans in the awkward position of defending his actions between the presidential election and the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. The White House has maintained that President Biden has better things to do than concern himself with Trump’s trial. “I think it's clear from his schedule, and from his intention, he will not spend too much time watching the proceedings of — any time over the course of this week,” press secretary...
    McCarthy has some stuff to deal with. The new QAnon extremist in the House, Georgia Republican Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene, wore out her welcome with fellow members in about a week's time. Now House leadership is ready to step in where Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has failed, doing something to keep this dangerous member constrained. Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is filing a resolution to remove Greene from her committee assignments because of her "repulsive" comments and behavior. "If Republicans won't police their own, the House must step in," she told reporters Monday. That's the first step of an ultimatum Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is giving McCarthy. If he doesn't move to strip her of her committee assignments within 72 hours, the resolution comes to the floor and every single Republican will have to vote on it, showing whether they're standing with QAnon or not. So far, McCarthy has only said he'll have a "conversation" with her, and she's vowed to "never apologize." So that's going well. Campaign Action Greene is among those whose behavior and statements House Speaker Nancy...
    Saul Loeb, Getty Images A third of registered voters would support Democrats if they sought to “pack” the Supreme Court, according to a survey released Wednesday, but just one in 10 would want to see a liberal majority on the court in that scenario. The Washington Examiner/YouGov study found 34 percent of registered voters surveyed said they would support Democrats if they sought to expand the size of the court beyond nine members, while 47 percent said they were opposed. Sixty percent of Democrats said they were supported the idea, while 18 percent were opposed and 22 percent were undecided. Independents opposed the idea 45-32 percent, while Republicans opposed it 84-5 percent. In the event the court gained members, 11 percent of voters said they would like to see the majority be “overwhelmingly liberal,” while 47 percent said they would want it to be balanced. The survey was conducted on Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percent. The issue of expanding the size of the court — or “court-packing” — has been a subject of...
    Democrats have been loudly clamoring for an end to the Electoral College for the last two decades. Their demands began in earnest when Republican George W. Bush defeated Democrat Al Gore in the 2000 election. That was the first time since 1888 that the winner of the Electoral College lost the popular vote. Since then, the cries to abolish the Electoral College have grown only more shrill — especially following President Donald Trump's win in 2016 over Hillary Clinton, despite losing the popular vote. For example, just this week, CNN's Don Lemon was caught saying we need to "blow up the entire system" should the Senate confirm Trump's forthcoming nomination to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A key step in blowing up the system, Lemon said, was "to get rid of the Electoral College ... because the minority in this country decides who the judges are and they decide who the president is. Is that — is that fair?"...
    President Donald Trump dared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to impeach him a second time after she refused to take that maneuver off the table to stall a Supreme Court vote.  'I'm the only guy in the world that could be impeached for filling a seat,' Trump complained at his Toledo, Ohio rally Monday night, noting that he was 'constitutionally obligated' to nominate a new justice. 'Go ahead, I want them to do that.'        Trump and Senate Republicans want to push through a GOP-approved Supreme Court pick to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the November election, when the White House and the Senate could change hands. President Donald Trump complained Monday night at a rally at the Toledo Express Airport that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wouldn't take impeaching him again off the table. She suggested she could do it to stall him getting a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg through  'I'm the only guy in the world that could be impeached for filling a seat,' Trump told a crowd of supporters in Ohio Monday night. They chanted...
    Republicans have experienced a significant bounce in voter registrations in the key swing state of Pennsylvania, netting roughly seven times more registrations than Democrats since the last presidential election. Several polls show President Trump gradually closing the gap in the Keystone State, which RealClearPolitics has in Joe Biden’s (D) column by just over four percent. A Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters in Pennsylvania released last week emphasized the shift in the state, showing Trump and his Democrat opponent tied with 46 percent each. Regardless of the surveys, Trump’s campaign, as well as his allies, are continuing to put stock in the existence of the “silent majority” — a sect of Trump voters who are not explicitly expressing their Election Day intentions. Recent voter registration data from Pennsylvania is feeding those beliefs. While Democrats have a sizable advantage in overall registered voters throughout the state, holding an advantage of roughly 750,000, the GOP has added 198,000 registered voters since the 2016 election — nearly seven times more than the 29,000 picked up by Democrats. Democrats currently comprise 47 percent of the electorate, down...

People — and investors — can become very emotional as a presidential election heats up, and this time around, feelings are obviously running high.
