Corey Stapleton Announces Support for Increased Ukraine Aid

Republican Presidential candidate criticizes Biden's removal of U.S. Naval assets from Black Sea prior to Russian invasion.

DES MOINES, Iowa - November 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Former Montana Secretary of State and current Republican presidential candidate Corey Stapleton says the United States needs to be significantly more involved in both the defense and rebuilding of Ukraine following its February invasion from neighboring Russia.

While crediting President Joe Biden for publicly sharing numerous intelligence reports showing the buildup of Russian troops prior to the invasion, Stapleton was critical of Biden's decision to vacate U.S. naval forces from the adjoining Black Sea prior to the telegraphed conflict.

Turkey has since closed off passage into the strategic Black Sea for ships not homeported there.

Stapleton, a former U.S. naval officer, cited the Marshall Plan as a model for both rebuilding the infrastructure in Ukraine and providing comprehensive assistance to the devastated nations facing energy and food shortages heading into winter.  The original Marshall Plan was passed in 1948 by the U.S. Congress following World War II, to help finance the rebuilding of Western Europe.

"The Western front may be further East now," said Stapleton, "but genocide and war are just as real as then."

Stapleton called on President Biden and the U.S. Congress to pass Marshall Plan II, providing an infrastructure and financial roadmap for war-torn Ukraine, coordinating with European and NATO allies and ending the Russo-Ukrainian War.

Rehab Warriors Faces the Housing Problem Head-on, Commits to Upskilling Veterans

By repurposing them as our nation's most highly skilled and cross-functional asset and empowering them on a mission to rebuild underserved communities.

FORT WORTH, Texas - November 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reported there were more than 30,000 homeless veterans in 2022, with many struggling to find their footing transitioning from life after combat.

Andy Williams - U.S. Marine and co-host of HGTV's "Flip or Flop Fort Worth" - founded Rehab Warriors with one mission, to upskill veterans while rebuilding communities.

Rehab Warriors is leveraging veteran leadership to build a workforce as they provide veterans with world-class training in residential construction, remodeling, and small-scale development, empowering them with the necessary skills to be a force multiplier as Rehab Warriors collectively rebuilds communities that have been undercapitalized and underserved.

"The easiest way to help veterans transition is to double down on underserved communities and rebuild them with a purpose," said Williams. "We at Rehab Warriors handle the American Dream of housing like a wounded warrior - we handle it with care. Everyone, especially veterans, deserves a pathway to housing and freedom."

Those pathways have become impossibly steep in recent years. Home prices rose 19% in 2021, after rising 10% in 2020. There were just 250,000 homes available nationwide for families earning $75,000 to $100,000 a year, barely one-third of the inventory from before the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) found, and in almost 500 U.S. cities, the average home price is more than $1 million. As the working class struggles to find housing for entry-level homes, the veteran is a perfect pipeline for local governments to increase their local housing supply while empowering veterans with high-earning careers, as they return home looking for their next mission.

As the economy corrects and layoffs continue, it is only natural for Rehab Warriors' cause to maintain focus on employment and economic pathways specifically for veterans.

The Rehab Warriors leadership team has led the organization into early success with active development projects totaling over $400 million dollars in economic impact in the DFW metroplex alone, pioneering this integrated workforce development model in the real estate development industry. Rehab Warriors worked closely with the United States Department of Labor to build the first-of-its-kind apprenticeship program, then went on to gain approval with Texas Workforce Commission for a Career School that trains veterans in the fundamentals and principles of real estate development with emphasis on Project and Construction Management

"Underserved communities are economically viable today as America maintains its housing deficit. These communities should be rebuilt with purpose and capitalized using incentives like CRA funds, HUD dollars, and opportunity zone tax advantages that lead to pathways of economic mobility for the underserved, but we must start with the veteran," said Williams. "Nonprofits are challenged with the level of competition that capitalism brings as Wall Street continues to aggregate old housing stock and simultaneously build new housing stock for rent at scale."

Rehab Warriors is actively partnering with communities and municipalities, building off early success in cities such as Arlington, Hurst, Balch Springs, and Fort Worth, Texas, to provide post-certification pathways to veterans as they deploy back to local communities to lead the local rebuild efforts as Rehab Warriors starts their campaign to rebuild America's housing supply.

NEW BOOK: David McCormick’s Battle Plan to Renew America

Former CEO, combat veteran and Senate candidate David McCormick outlines a conservative vision and leadership principles that can win elections and rescue America from decline.

WASHINGTON - November 29, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

In the wake of failed GOP efforts to take back the Senate, including in battleground states like Pennsylvania, conservatives need a new principled, optimistic vision for how they will address the problems of our time. Given most Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, America needs a path out of its current downward spiral of stagnation, disillusionment and decline. And in the face of China's campaign for global supremacy, the nation needs leaders who will fight to preserve America's superpower status. 

In Superpower in Peril: A Battle Plan to Renew America (Center Street, March 14, 2023), David McCormick - former CEO of Bridgewater Associates, U.S. Army paratrooper and candidate for the U.S. Senate - outlines a conservative agenda for American renewal that fuses the populist impulse with common-sense reforms that would expand access to the American dream, enable U.S. technological supremacy, and confront China.  

Drawing on management and leadership lessons honed in uniform, in the boardroom and at the highest levels of government, McCormick issues a call for servant leadership that is as relevant for entrepreneurs and those in business as for politicians and policymakers. Recognizing the talent and untapped potential in the American people, he argues that if we commit ourselves to renewal and reviving the restless American spirit of hard work and self-confidence, America will see a new birth of dynamism, strength, and exceptionalism. In Superpower in Peril, McCormick details: 

  • The need for new, transformational leadership in Washington, in business and across society that will boldly set a vision for the future of America. Inflation, stagnation, and the lingering effects of the pandemic threaten the American dream. Our values are under assault. Our country is being pulled apart by polarization, and the Chinese Communist Party threatens our way of life. Yet our nation's leaders have failed to chart a path forward or answer the critical question: "What comes next?" 
  • The story of the most contested, high-profile Republican primary in the country, and how what happened there paved the way for Republicans to fail to win the majority in the Senate and for Pennsylvania to not have a Republican senator for the first time in seven decades.
  • The most serious external risk to American renewal - the Chinese Communist Party - and what America must do to overcome this existential threat. China has a plan to dominate global affairs, cement its preeminence and end America's role as a superpower. It is time for America's leaders to confront Communist China and establish a comprehensive strategy to preserve American supremacy. 
  • A bold vision for the future of the country and a battle plan to keep America exceptional by revitalizing the American dream and unleashing the potential in all Americans. In order to be competitive in the years ahead, we must harness the vast potential of the digital age and win the race for technological supremacy. 

PRAISE FOR SUPERPOWER IN PERIL

"In Superpower in Peril, David McCormick answers the most important question of our time: How do we save America from the forces that want to tear it apart? This book is a must-read for all who care about the fight for our republic." - Mark Levin, Radio and Television Host

"Superpower in Peril is a manifesto for national renewal, a powerful riposte to those who claim America's best days are behind it. Immigration reform, a National Innovation Council, a bonfire of the Biden administration's regulations, reform of Big Tech, not to mention Big Defense." - Niall Ferguson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Author of Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe

"Superpower in Peril is a timely and provocative guide for what our country must do next, full of lessons from David McCormick's time as a CEO, military officer, and statesman. - Marillyn Hewson, Former Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Lockheed Martin Corporation 

"Superpower in Peril is a book to be read and discussed, but it is also a book to be implemented. It is up to us to ensure that David McCormick's recommendations carry on beyond its pages, drive real change, and restore confidence in our ability to build a better future for generations of Americans to come." - H.R. McMaster, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Author of Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World
