David Carlucci on Biden Extending Public Health Emergency | Faulkner Focus January 11, 2023
Last night on the Faulkner Focus, I shared some insight on the importance of President Biden's 90-day extension of the COVID-19 public health emergency. Everybody is experiencing Pandemic fatigue and wants to know if and when it will be truly over, but there is no precedent to follow to guide us to that conclusion. Therefore, the President needs to be extremely cautious when introducing and removing COVID-related protocols in the US. Just because we are done with COVID does not mean that COVID is done with us.
David Carlucci's Speculation on Kevin McCarthy's Speaker Bid | Fox News December 31, 2022
Kevin McCarthy has a tough road ahead of him between taking the Speaker seat. With only four votes to spare, he has a lot of maneuvering that he needs to do before the vote next Tuesday. But at the end of the day, it is concerning to see the extreme right's grip on McCarthy and how this could inherently shift all public policy drastically to the right next year. Things are not looking good for the Republicans and the country as a whole.
David Carlucci on New York City Crime | Fox News December 29, 2022
Home to nearly 9 million people, New York City is one of the most densely populated cities in the country. Because of this, it is only probable that horrific cases of criminal activity will occur within the city. These events are not representative of what is happening in New York. Since Mayor Adams came into office, murders are down 12% and shootings are down by 17%. New York City remains one of the safest cities even as crime is up around the United States.
David Carlucci Talks the Importance of the PACT Act | Fox News December 17, 2022
Recently on Fox News, I tackled President Biden's recent statements about his visits to the Middle East and the importance of the PACT Act. The speech the President gave at a National Guard center named after his late son, Beau, reflects Biden's dedication to our veterans and his mission to ensure their safety while in service and at home. The bi-partisan PACT Act is a historical piece of legislation expanding healthcare for veterans, especially those exposed to toxic substances during their service. When politicians get out of their own way and focus not on what is the Democratic or Republican way, but instead on what is right for the people, we see amazing results like the bi-partisan PACT Act. Please inform a veteran you know about the benefits of the PACT Act, it can literally save their life!
David Carlucci Provides Input on Senator Joe Manchin's 2024 Ambitions | Fox News December 16, 2022
Today I was on the Faulkner Focus debating against speculation about Senator Joe Manchin's chances in 2024. Currently, some believe that Joe Manchin will follow Senator Krysten Sinema and leave the Democratic Party due to his tendency to choose the needs of his constituents over party uniformity. The Democrats are a big party and Joe Manchin has proven to be an independent member of that camp. Manchin's independence, however, should not be the cause for concern for the Democrats. His keenness to debate his fellow Democrats on the issues is not only healthy for the party's platform, but for the policies that impact each and every one of us.
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus | Fox News December 2, 2022
Yesterday on the Faulkner Focus, I explained President Biden's chances of winning in 2024. Although the President does not have the highest approval rating, he has been tested, tried, and evaluated repeatedly- and proved to be an effective leader. Biden mediates between the two extremes in the US, leading to the best outcomes for all parties. Ron DeSantis is favorable right now, but he has a long haul in front of him. Potentially facing off against Donald Trump, DeSantis is in the position for a brutal campaign cycle, creating an uproar of infighting within the Republican Party. Overall, backing President Biden is critical for securing the Democratic win in 2024.
David Carlucci Discusses SCOTUS Immigration Case and Twitter Regulation | Fox News November 29, 2022
Last night, I was on Fox reflecting on the Supreme Court's recent hearing on President Biden's federal immigration policy and several Southern states' issues with contentions with it. The Executive Branch's main purpose is to enforce the laws and protect our country. Possibly overturning the White House's decision to execute specific immigration policies would be an extreme detriment to this charge. Not only that, but the Republicans' desired policy requires resources that the Department of Homeland Security seriously lacks. We cannot enforce stricter immigration laws on over 11 million undocumented immigrants if we do not have the staff to enforce them.
David Carlucci on the Southern Border and the Hunter Biden Investigation | Fox News November 22, 2022
Today, I was on Fox News discussing President Biden and Congress Republicans' differing stances on border security and immigration reform. There is no question that the United States requires a secure border. But at the same time, we must reform the current inhumane immigration policies that lead to a flux of people taking the dangerous trek over the border illegally. Kevin McCarthy and the Republicans have shown little to no interest in a bipartisan immigration plan, choosing to point fingers instead.
David Carlucci on the Lessons from the 2022 Midterm Elections | Fox News November 17, 2022
This year, Republicans and Democrats both learned to be aware of the extremes in their party. Not only does this cause infighting, but also the American people prefer compromises. Luckily, President Biden has done a superb job at bridging those differences and delivering results for Americans.
David Carlucci Talks Midterms on the Faulkner Focus | Fox News November 7, 2022
One day before the Midterm Elections, I was on Fox News discussing the Democrats' strategy and possible performance come Tuesday. As a Democrat, I have been concerned about the midterms knowing that historically they can be devastating for presidents and their parties. However, this midterm cycle has surprised me. Seeing how close the Democrats are fairing in the polls and the number of early voters truly showcase President Biden and the Democrats' work towards taking the initial steps against inflation and also preserving the rights of every American.
Rafael Mangual Responds to David Carlucci's Stance on Cash Bail | Fox News November 3, 2022
Earlier this week, I defended Governor Hochul's cash bail policy reform on Fox News. No data shows cash bail to be the actual perpetrator of rising crime in New York. However, not everyone thinks this. Check out this clip to hear Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Rafael Mangual's analysis of the data.
David Carlucci on New York Crime and Cash Bail Reform | Fox News November 1, 2022
When talking about legal reform, one thing must stay true: justice is blind. It is absurd that some individuals await their trial in jail while on the other hand, those who have been accused of the same crime get to spend time with their families - just because they can afford it! Cash bail reform is necessary for maintaining a fair and equitable criminal justice system within New York. There is no proof that it creates a "revolving door" for violent offenders is jumping the gun. No data proves that cash bail reform is the sole contributor to the nationwide surge in crime. Instituting cash bail will not solve crime, finding the root causes and investing in proper emergency services will.
David Carlucci on Biden, Big Oil and Inflation | Fox News November 1, 2022
It is about time that President Biden tells big oil companies that enough is enough. These companies have made record profits this year, and only plan to "give back" through dividends! I commend the President for telling these companies that it is about time they pay their fair share for the American people and to help relieve that nationwide economic burden. Inflation is always an incumbent killer during the Midterm Elections, but President Biden's work must be recognized by voters. Fortunately, under the President's leadership, the United States is in a much better economic situation compared to other countries around the globe.
David Carlucci on President Biden's Mental Health | Fox News, October 24, 2022
I agree with President Biden when he says that age should be somewhat of a concern, but showing up and taking action is really what characterizes a President. And this is what we have seen from President Biden. Sure, the President has messed up his words during live interviews sometimes, but those “fumbles” have no effect on his work in the Oval Office. Competency goes far beyond what someone says, it is characterized by what a person does, and their actions and so far, President Biden’s actions have proven that he is fit to be President.
David Carlucci on Inflation & the Midterms | Fox News, October 24, 2022
There is no question that there are issues in the economy right now. Inflation is a global issue that not every country has countered as well including the United States. President Biden has made strides during his presidency, passing historical legislation towards our economy, the environment, and healthcare. Republicans on the other hand just play the blame game and plan on increasing the national deficit if they regain power in Congress.
David Carlucci on the Georgia Governor Race and Biden's Immigration Efforts | Fox News October 18, 2022
Due to our polarized political environment, voters already have their minds made up for them. This leads political superstars like Abrams and Kemp to attack each other in order to demobilize the other side. Right now, the Georgia governor race is neck-to-neck with both leading candidates at a one-point difference and the Libertarian nominee polling at 2%, meaning we could be seeing a run-off election in November.
David Carlucci on the Legislative Signing Process | California Today October 7, 2022
It was great to be invited onto California Today to explain the legislation signing process. Believe it or not, turning a bill into law is not a linear process. Rules vary state by state, but there are multiple tools at the hand of governors and state legislatures to implement or veto legislation aside from simply getting a bill passed and signed. Some states have rules for pocket vetoes, while California allows for unsigned bills to become implemented after a certain period of time.
David Carlucci on the Expansion of the Inflation Reduction Act | Fox News October 6, 2022
We are all in agreement that climate change is a rule issue with potentially devastating effects. The question now is how aggressively we should tackle it. The Inflation Reduction Act, although not a silver bullet for inflation, is a terrific foundation for addressing the environment, jobs, and health care.
David Carlucci on the Wisconsin & Pennsylvania Midterms | Faulkner Focus October 3, 2022
Although Republicans are moving the needle by doubling down on crime, they fail to recognize that the economy is still the number one issue for voters. Through the Inflation Reduction Act, canceling of student debt, Democrats have been proving to Americans that they have an action plan to fix the economy. At the end of the day, voters in states with close races like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are going to elect someone with a plan - not someone who just blames the President.
David Carlucci on the Fox News | Fox News October 1, 2022
Looking at all 32 million eligible Latino voters as one group is a tremendous mistake when trying to make predictions. The community is far too diverse to say that Latinos are leaving the Democratic Party when looking at one state. Historical data has shown that Latino voters are strong Democrat supporters, especially after the Dobbs decision this summer.
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus | Fox News September 23, 2022
There is little that Congress and the President can do about inflation, but President Biden and the Democrats in Congress have done everything in their power to reduce it. There are no reports that say the Inflation Reduction Act will make inflation worse for the country. Instead, the law will have a dramatic effect on both the long-term prosperity of our economy and climate.
David Carlucci on Raise the Age Legislation | NewsNation September 22, 2022
This week I was on NewsNation discussing the importance of Raise the Age legislation for the New York criminal justice system. Raise the Age will grant 16 and 17-year-olds who commit crimes comprehensive treatment to deter them from breaking the law again. The number one way to increase recidivism is to lock up children. Confinement without support services does not lower the crime rate - it creates a vicious cycle. Raise the Age will ensure that New York's children will remain outside of the criminal justice system by focusing on treatment, not punishment.
David Carlucci on the Mar-a-Lago Investigation | Fox News September 20, 2022
As the Mar-a-Lago investigation continues, one thing is clear: former President Donald Trump was in possession of documents owned by the National Archives and asked to return them. Trump can claim executive privilege and that he declassified the documents, but that right is qualified not absolute and declassification requires a specific process outlined in the Presidential Records Act. These documents were classified for a reason and could put the public at risk if placed in the wrong hands.
News12: Debating the issues – the home stretch of the mid-term elections | September 11, 2022
I was on News12 explaining the benefits of several major bills signed under President Biden. Whether it be student loans, Medicare, or climate - this one video is the one-stop place to learn about the historical legislation passed just this year. Thank you News12 for this great opportunity, especially with the Midterm Elections just two months away!
David Carlucci on Stacey Abrams's Governor Campaign| Fox News September 8, 2022
I was on the Faulkner Focus yesterday discussing Stacey Abrams’s governor campaign in Georgia. Having the potential to become the first black woman elected into the governor’s mansion, Abrams has dealt with plenty of vilification, racism, and sexism throughout her campaign. Despite this, she has set herself as a key figure in Georgia and has a great likelihood to win the election come November.
David Carlucci on Biden's Comments on MAGA Extremism| Fox News August 31, 2022
President Biden's speech was an attempt at reaching across the aisle and calling out a threat to our democracy, not to write off half of the country. His statements were purely about the MAGA ideology, an extremist movement with s a stranglehold on the GOP. President Biden is saying that it is the responsibility of everyone, Democrat, Independent, and Republican to stand up against MAGA extremism and preserve the sanctity of our nation.
David Carlucci on Fox News | Fox News August 30, 2022
Prior to President Biden’s ‘Battle for the Soul of the Nation' speech, I was on Fox News clarifying the President’s language towards MAGA Republicans and Trump’s ideology. Biden is not demonizing half of the American electorate when he calls the MAGA movement “semi-fascist”. Instead, he is condemning the extreme few affixed on lies about the 2020 election and supporting the events on January 6th. President Biden is calling on all Americans, Republicans, Independents, and Democrats alike to push back on the extreme MAGA ideology.
David Carlucci on President Biden's Student Debt Plan | Fox News August 29, 2022
I was on Fox News yesterday discussing President Biden’s student loan debt forgiveness plan. Although the plan is not the fix-all solution for student loan debt, it is a step in the right direction. Over 60% of borrowers also receive Pell Grants from the federal government, meaning that they can get up to $20,000 through the plan. Even more so, 20 million borrowers will have all their debt forgiven. Yes, this is not universal debt forgiveness, but Biden is taking off the burden of so many Americans and following through on his campaign promises.
David Carlucci on the Mar-a-Lago Investigation | NewsNation August 28, 2022
It was a pleasure to be on NewsNation and express my thoughts on the FBI’s raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. Situations like these require one thing: clarity. With a polarizing figure like Donald Trump involved, conspiracy theories and assumptions are prone to flood public opinion. The American people need to be left in the loop as much as possible throughout the process in order to keep opinions reliant on the facts and for proper justice to be served. Hopefully, with a special master involved with the DOJ’s investigation, future proceedings will be transparent and clear.
David Carlucci on Florida Governor Race | NewsMax August 24, 2022
Ron DeSantis has proven one thing throughout his time as Governor of Florida: his influence. He has broken fundraising records for school board elections in order to infiltrate schools with the Trump ideology. But the Florida Governor race will be a referendum on Ron DeSantis and the Trump agenda. Charlie Christ is not the “woke” opponent that draws voters towards Governor DeSantis. Because of this, DeSantis might have to abandon his crusade against the “woke left” and move towards the center to secure more votes.
David Carlucci on the Reality of Crime Rates | Fox News August 19, 2022
Although it might be reported by the media that crime is soaring in states run by Democrats, the truth is that crime is an issue for both red and blue states. In fact, the crime rate in Florida is higher than that of New York! Even more so, the crime rate now pales in comparison to the recession in the 2000s and the 80s and 90s. Resolving crime continues to be a work in progress. From installing more security cameras to fixing the unfair justice system, and gun control, there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done within the country.
David Carlucci on the CDC Overhaul | Fox News August 18, 2022
It was great to talk about the overhaul within the CDC and the Inflation Reduction Act. Dr. Walensky deserves credit for being able to admit the mistakes made by the CDC during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Reflecting on the missteps under the Trump Administration, it is clear that the CDC needs reform to keep politics out of public health. Although the Inflation Reduction Act is not the cure-all solution to inflation, it is still a major tool for remedying it and many of the United States’s long-term issues. The Inflation Reduction Act is about a lot more than inflation: it is about affordable medicine, protecting the environment, and economic equity. Many worry that the Inflation Reduction Act is just a ploy to overtax the middle class - but that could not be farther from the truth. The IRA will allow for the IRS to meet the match of the corporate entities that have exploited our tax system for years on end, not tax the middle class.
David Carlucci on the Expansion of the IRS Under the Inflation Reduction Act | Fox News August 12, 2022
I was on Fox News discussing the expansion of the IRS under the Inflation Reduction Act. Expanding the IRS is necessary for the taxation issues created by modern, globalist corporations. The Inflation Reduction Act will simply create specialized forces to match these issues - not to tax the middle class. In fact, it is far more likely that middle-class families will face fewer audits due to the Inflation Reduction Act.
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus August 8, 2022
I had the opportunity to highlight the victories of President Biden & talk about how the focus should be on delivering results like passing the historic Inflation Reduction Act - not playing political theatre and hypothesizing on 2024.
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus July 26, 2022
Although it is true that most Democrats prefer some flawless, fictional candidate for 2024, the truth is that if President Biden runs for reelection, he will win - especially against Donald Trump. He is showing the American people what he can do about gas prices and inflation while the Republicans just play the blame game! But by 2024, the public will vote based on results, not pointed fingers.
David Carlucci on Speaker Pelosi's Trip to Taiwan July 23, 2022
President Biden is doing the right thing by walking the fine line between supporting Taiwan and also strengthening the U.S.'s strategic partnership with China. Especially following the Trump Presidency and the war in Ukraine, it is more important than ever for the United States to maintain a stable relationship with China. As Speaker Pelosi said, Taiwan's independence is up to Taiwan - not the United States.
David Carlucci on Political Personalities with Skye!
Being on City & State's Political Personalities with Skye earlier this week was a pleasure. Watch us talk about the interesting political history of the old Tappan Zee Bridge, now named the Governor Mario Cuomo Bridge. Once again, thank you Skye and City & State for welcoming me on your show!

David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus July 14, 2022
Although the Democrats are not performing well in the polls, things are even worse for the Republicans. Historically, the sitting President’s party always loses popularity around the midterms. Neck-to-neck polls are a clear indication that President Biden’s plan is working - and that the American people approve.
NewsNation Appearance July 7, 2022
We are very fortunate to have digital technology as a tool for criminal investigations. That being said, we cannot allow the court of public opinion to become judge, jury, and prosecutor for alleged crimes. You can never title someone guilty or innocent based solely on a soundless clip. We must ensure that justice is executed accurately through unbiased, thorough investigations - not online discussion of a single video.
David Carlucci on Fox News Fourth of July 2022
Look at the historical data, the President’s party always takes a hit before the midterm elections. Biden’s approval ratings are nothing to worry about for the Democrats - Presidents Clinton and Obama had similar numbers at this point in their presidency. President Biden is doing the right thing by staying on track: fixing the economy, protecting abortion rights, and implementing stricter gun control. He is focused on what is best for Americans and not his political campaign!
David Carlucci on The Faulkner Focus June 28th, 2022
The President has limited resources when it comes to combatting global inflation and the price of gas. He has unclogged the ports around the country and asked Congress to suspend the gas tax. He has done what he can to support the United States and its allies worldwide.
David Carlucci on the Rebuttal with Dan Bongino June 25, 2022
It seems that Dan Bongino and I can agree on one thing: President Biden's federal gas tax holiday is a great idea. The President's policy will help return money to working-class families suffering from global inflation and gas prices. Our consensus breaks on gun laws, however. Gun control works! State laws have been shown to directly impact the decrease of violence in a city. The Supreme Court's recent ruling which struck down a 110 New York concealed carry law will only make New York and all other affected states more dangerous.
June 23, 2022: President Biden's Federal Gas Holiday
President Biden’s federal gas holiday is more than just a gimmick for the midterm elections. Rather, it is one of the few tools the President and Congress have to combat global inflation accelerated by Putin’s war with Ukraine. The temporary pause on gas taxes for the summer months will grant Americans some relief at the pump.
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus: Donald Trump is a Gift to the Democrats!
Republicans have every right to be excited for the midterms, but they neglect to notice how much of a gift for the Democrats Donald Trump will be in 2024. Look at the January 6th trial and Trump’s actions and inactions on that day; not to mention his party’s unpopular stances on gun control and women’s rights. For Republicans to think that the 2024 Election is a slam dunk is absurd!
David Carlucci on Fox News June 9, 2022
The arrest of an armed man outside of Justice Kavanaugh’s home makes it more clear than ever that the extremist rhetoric on both sides must end. The language from both Republican and Democrat leaders has plagued our political environment into one where individuals use violence and fear as means of persuasion. I condemn the protests outside of Justice Kavanaugh’s home, but there is no reason to charge those who displayed peaceful protest. There is a clear line between civil protesting and violent intimidation. I hope that Congress passes the bipartisan Supreme Court Police Parity Act to ensure the safety of all Supreme Court Justices, their staff, and their families.
David Carlucci on Fox News June 6, 2022
Globally and domestically, there are a multitude of factors contributing to inflation. It is wrong to blame a singular President - both Presidents Trump and Biden overstimulated the economy during the COVID-19 Pandemic. If they didn't stimulate the economy, we would be in even worse shape. President Biden's work especially has pointed us towards long-term stability and prosperity!
Fox News Appearance May 31, 2022
I was as on Fox News Media opposing New York State’s new redistricting lines! The new map has the potential to spring a crisis of infighting within the Democratic Party and an unfair Republican advantage. We cannot let this map degrade the political process for New York Democrats!
David Carlucci on the Faulkner Focus
President Biden will do everything he can to show the people that he is in it to win it for 2024. The American people care most about seeing results, and that is what Biden does best. If the Democrats can overcome gridlock and pass legislation that combats the major issues like inflation and crime rates, we can count even more on a Biden victory in 2024!
Talking Redistricting on the Faulkner Focus
I was on Fox News Media opposing New York State’s new redistricting lines! The new map has the potential to spring a crisis of infighting within the Democratic Party and an unfair Republican advantage. We cannot let this map degrade the political process for New York Democrats!

David Carlucci on Fox News at Night March 15, 2022
Although gas prices have been increasing steadily since the COVID-19 Pandemic, Putin's invasion of Ukraine has exasperated inflation. This situation is a prime example of why the United States needs to move towards energy independence!
