China Scandal? Voters Don't Believe Biden!
Questions about Chinese payments to President Joe Biden’s family are a serious scandal, according to a majority of voters, and most doubt the president is telling the whole truth about it.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 42% of likely U.S. voters believe it’s likely that Biden has told the complete truth about his family’s foreign business deals, including 24% who say it’s very likely. Fifty-four percent (54%) don’t think it’s likely Biden is telling the whole truth, including 38% who say it is mot at all likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

NJ Legislator Selects Chief Of Staff
New Jersey State Senator Kristin M. Corrado announced the appointment of Donald S. DeDio Jr. as the new chief of staff in her 40th Legislative District Office.
“Donnie has worked closely with me and my district office staff over the years in various capacities,” said Corrado (R-40). “He brings a wealth of experience to our office having served in various roles in the political and nonprofit worlds and in municipal government. I have no doubt that Donnie will hit the ground running in support of our efforts to fight for our constituents and maintain the high level of service that people have come to expect from our district office.”
DeDio is a lifelong resident of Wayne, New Jersey, and is an active member of the community. He is a graduate of Seton Hall University, where he obtained an undergraduate degree in political science in 2020 and a master’s degree in public administration in 2022.
He serves as the Chairman of the Passaic County Young Republicans—a position he has held since 2018—and most recently, was appointed in February 2023 as the Secretary of the Wayne Regular Republican Organization.
Additionally, DeDio serves as the President of the Wayne Police Athletic League (PAL) Board of Trustees, as a middle school travel basketball coach at the Wayne PAL, and as a member of the Wayne Township Zoning Board of Adjustment.
Previously, DeDio was employed by the Township of Montville where he served as a Confidential Assistant to the Township Administrator.
“Senator Corrado is a dedicated public servant who consistently stands up for her constituents and New Jersey taxpayers,” DeDio added. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to serve as her chief of staff and to build upon the already exceptional constituent services already offered by the 40th Legislative District Office.”

Who Woulda Thunk It?! . . . . .
So You Think You Know India, Huh? Think Again!
Ankush Bhandari has a fascinating story to tell about his journey from his hometown of Panchkula, India to America and its corporate world. It's a story repeated many times among Americans of Indian origin -- a highly motivated, value-centered, industrious group whose members are impacting many aspects of American life including our politics. We also talked with Ankush about India's history, its culture and the nation today as it continues to emerge as an economic powerhouse. Watch, listen, learn!
Biden Approval Rating Headed To Low Point!
In fact, Biden's approval rating this month has now hit the 38% mark, a significant slide from the 45% he "enjoyed" not very long ago. We say "enjoyed" relatively speaking because Biden's ratings have pretty consistently remained below 50% -- a sorry record by any measure. His lowest rating so far has been 36%, barely cracking the support of one third of the voters. The last time Biden topped 50% was in August, 2021 when he was still enjoying somewhat of a honeymoon with the voters.
Right now, his handling of the economy has an even worse rating with just 31% saying they like the job he's doing in that department. Only about a quarter of Americans say the national economy is good or that the country is headed in the right direction, the poll shows.
Let's face it, these figures are dismal. One has to wonder how Biden was elected in the first place or how he continues to hang on. He's old, seems confused and cantankerous, flees the presidency every weekend to run back to his bunker in Delaware and cannot point to any significant successes during his first term. And now he's shackled with a GOP House that he doesn't seem to be willing to work with, an ongoing economic crisis and a burgeoning family scandal. Not good. Not good at all!
