Monday Executive News Summary

Americans eschew race-based limit for SCOTUS pick, Biden doubling down on his war on energy, Cheney challenger rakes in big bucks, and more.

Top of the Fold

  • Americans eschew Biden’s race-based limit for SCOTUS pick: The vast majority of Americans reject Joe Biden’s decision to play identity politics by pledging to nominate a black woman to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court. According to a recent ABC News-Ipsos poll, 76% of Americans, including a majority of Democrats (54%), want Biden to consider “all possible nominees” regardless of their race or sex for his Court pick. In fact, just 23% agree with Biden’s decision to restrict his pick to a black woman. Dr. Ben Carson blasted Biden’s decision to inject race into his SCOTUS choice, arguing that “to create that kind of situation in the highest court in the land is really abominable, and very detrimental to our freedoms.”

  • Biden doubling down on his war on energy: Evidently, Joe Biden likes the idea of Americans having to shell out more of their hard-earned yet increasingly lower-valued dollars (inflation is at 7%) to pay for energy. Biden’s EPA is in the process of creating new rules for fossil fuel-based energy plants that will raise the price of electricity. Furthermore, Biden is set to revive the Obama-era “clean energy” debacle that created the $500 million Solyndra disaster, only this time the amount is doubled. Biden’s attempt at picking winners and losers will give $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to a Nebraska company to make “clean” hydrogen. Meanwhile, Americans are still paying an average of $3.33 at the pump, and heating oil prices have risen 40+% over last year. The cherry on top? None of this stops China’s and India’s continued increase of CO2 emissions.

  • Trump-backed Cheney challenger rakes in big bucks: Rep. Liz Cheney, the most senior of 10 House Republicans to vote in favor of impeaching Donald Trump, finds herself facing a tough primary challenger. Harriet Hageman, a Wyoming native backed by Trump, has hauled in over $1 million since she entered the primary race last September. Beyond impeachment, Cheney has further angered constituents by participating in Nancy Pelosi’s sham January 6 Committee. Hageman, who once supported Cheney, explained, “Wyoming deserves to be represented by someone who cares about Wyoming, not someone who is consumed by her own personal war with President Trump.” Yet Cheney still has a big war chest of roughly $4.5 million, and much of it is thanks to Trump’s attacks against her.

  • U.S. “already in a warfare state” with Russia: R.P. Eddy, CEO of cybersecurity firm Ergo, recently told a bipartisan group of governors that if Russia does invade Ukraine, and the U.S. follows through on promised sanctions, then Russia is “very likely to increase cyberattacks,” which he noted would be “an easy move for them.” Eddy warned that “U.S. states and U.S. private companies need to be taking this very seriously … [as] we are already in a warfare state right now, and we need to be aware of that.” Jen Easterly, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, says the agency is taking the threat of a Russian invasion “very seriously,” but urged the American public not to view it as signifying an imminent cyberattack.
