Adam Milstein Meme Competition Offers Cash Prizes

From the mind of Adam Milstein and the folks of the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation comes a very interesting type of competition. They have teamed up with more than 12 other Jewish and pro-Israel groups to host a meme competition! The competition is currently open worldwide and invites anything who would like to participate as a “meme creator” or “meme artist” to submit a pro-Israel meme to the competition. Participants can submit up to five memes to the competition to be judged. Adam Milstein’s goal with the competition is to create memes that resonate with the younger generations who express themselves so throroughly through that medium. This competition is a lighter way to express thought and generate dialogue about Jewish and pro-Israel issues. There is no strict outline for submission – people are encouraged to take any tone that appeals to them, whether it may be comical or dramatic, topical or historical.

The competition will be open until Thursday August 3rd and judging will be open worldwide via Facebook. All memes are judged based on Facebook reactions such as “like” “love” “laugh” “angry,” etc. As a secondary goal of the competition, there will be a stash of pro-Israel memes developed that can be used over time to continually provide meme content that resonates with Millenialls and Gen Z.

Following the public judging, finalists will be judged by 6 well known pro-Israel activists and cash prizes will be awarded to the winners. The cash prizes will total $2,000.

Anyone and everyone is encouraged to enter and have your thoughts and voice heard through the Adam Milstein Meme Competition. You can simply visit www.milsteinmemes.org to enter.

George Soros Financial Effort to Boost Democratic Votes through Mobilizing Latino Voters

George Soros, the chairperson and founder of Open Society, is a reputable philanthropist who fled Hungary in 1947 after the Nazi occupation to expand the Soviet dominance. Through his unique foundation, he has been championing for an open society where the federal government is accountable, rights are respected, and with no individual owning the monopoly of truth. In addition, he is the chairperson and founder of Soros Fund Management LLC.

Political Financing

Apart from taking part in philanthropic activities, such as giving scholarships to black students, he has been an instrumental financier in the American political scene. In fact, he tops as the highest financier for political endeavors and politicians in the United States of America.

In a recent article posted in the New York Times, Soros and other donors are said to be behind the funding of a new political mobilization campaign. The campaign, which is expected to cost a whopping $15 million, is geared to drum up Latino as well as other immigrant individuals to vote for the Democratic candidates in the November 2016 elections.

Strategists have termed the funding as one of the leading Democratic Voter-turnout endeavor geared towards mobilizing immigrant and Latino voters only.

Money Usage

The larger share of the money is said to be spent via various organizations in the state of Nevada, Colorado, and Florida. These states are key to the campaign because they possess a large growth in the population of both Asian and Latino immigrants.

Super PAC

The Super PAC, the Immigrant Voters Win PAC, is charged with the role of coordinating the campaign or outreach, which is expected to be more partisan and political than in past endeavors. Strategists have asserted that the goals of the campaign will include boosting the number of Democratic immigrant voter turnout, and persuading politically non-committed Latinos to vote for the Democratic candidates. Consequently, the organizers are said to expect 400000 individuals as a minimum for fresh Democratic voters for the November Polls. Individually, Soros is proclaimed to contribute $5 million as facilitation funds for the Immigrant Voters Win PAC. This has turned Soros into a Liberal hero among various immigrants.

The campaign effort by Democratic financiers is said to have risen at a time when far signs of a Democratic enthusiasm split. Primarily, this is due to the existence of two chief candidates on the Democratic side, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

Other Funding Campaign Efforts

The Koch brothers’ political network is also said to be funding the Libre Initiative by spending an excess of $10 million in a bid to mobilize Hispanic voters. The political network has also deployed numerous field organizers in various states.
