Shareholder Warns Maker of Oreo That They are Endangering Their Brand

NLPC

Following the viral online ad it released about Oreo and its troubling partnership with LGBTQ advocacy group PFLAG, National Legal and Policy Center has published a follow-up video to promote a shareholder proposal it will present on May 22 at the annual meeting of Mondelez International, parent company of the cookie brand. NLPC’s resolution calls upon the multinational snack giant to scrutinize areas of risk where it has engaged in disturbing relationships with outside organizations, such as the one Oreo has with PFLAG. Other examples in the proposal cite Mondelez’s support for the Marxist, anti-law enforcement group Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, and the company’s partnership with the anti-Semitic UN Human Rights. “Mondelez is carelessly dashing through the consumer market dropping mines that very well could end up as tripwires for themselves,” said Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for NLPC. “It’s not surprising since Chairman/CEO Dirk Van de Put also serves on the board of Anheuser Busch InBev, the company that self-inflicted the greatest brand destruction in many years last April with Bud Light.” As NLPC pointed out with its Oreo video released in February, PFLAG condones gender transition treatments for children as young as three years old, and battles to make sure books with explicit content are allowed in public schools and libraries. NLPC initiated its campaign to highlight the cookie-maker’s inappropriate relationship with PFLAG after it noticed the brand’s social media accounts – primarily on X (formerly Twitter) – were heavily populated with posts in support of PFLAG’s various narratives, causes and social advocacy. The new video released today calls attention to Mondelez’s alliances with BLM and UN Human Rights, as well as PFLAG. In a white paper filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last month, NLPC also identified possible risky relationships the Chicago-based company has with organizations that include Human Rights Campaign, World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, and others. The broader media is noticing the increasing criticisms of Corporate America’s fealty to the radical LGBTQ+ agenda that includes the sexualization of children. The Wall Street Journal last week reported on NLPC’s proposal for Mondelez, and last month the nonprofit corporate watchdog earned widespread coverage of its proposal at Disney, which sought equal treatment for employees who have been victimized by radical gender ideology. “The political winds have shifted from just a few years ago, yet Mondelez is still living in the past as if nothing has changed,” said NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty. “Now that the extreme transgenderism push has inevitably progressed to endanger children, corporate involvement in social justice issues is more treacherous than ever. We urge Dirk Van de Put to wake up to the reality before it’s too late, or the consequences could be devastating.” ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

Teads Global Report Reveals New Auto Buying Landscape

Teads

Teads, the global media platform, today announced the findings of its latest global report, "Shifting Gears: Understanding the New Dynamics of Auto Buying Worldwide." Based on research conducted across 17 markets, these latest findings shed light on the key motivations, considerations, and emerging trends for auto buyers around the world. Here's what the data reveals: Brand Loyalty Wanes, Openness Soars: Consumer loyalty is taking a backseat, with a staggering 82% of respondents globally, open to switching brands. While this presents a critical opportunity for automakers to capture attention and build trust in a shorter timeframe, it also means that traditional marketing strategies may need a refresh to stand out in this new, competitive environment. Faster Decisions Demand Proactive Outreach: With a significant portion (42%) devoting two weeks or less to researching brands and models, consumer research timelines are shortening. To succeed in this environment, reaching consumers early and maintaining consistent engagement throughout their research journey is critical. The Green Wave: EVs and Hybrids Surge in Popularity: Sustainability is now a key buying factor, with 42% of consumers solely considering hybrid or electric. However, this trend varies regionally, with Mexico, Brazil, and the US still showing a stronger reliance on gas engines, Italy and Spain moving away from gas engines, but primarily focusing on Hybrid options, and France & Singapore showing the fastest adoption of both EVs and Hybrids. Russell Wager, VP of Marketing at Kia America, comments on this shift: 'Consumers are trying to understand what sustainability means for them and how much they should care. And I think that's actually on the OEMs to educate them, and we're taking that mission on as part of our global strategy. We have a combination of some new electric vehicles. We just revealed the K4, which is one of our newest gas-engine vehicles. We're giving choices to customers.' His insights underscore the evolving market dynamics and Kia's strategic response to meet diverse consumer preferences. Jen Brace, Chief Futurist, Ford, regarding electric vehicles, "It's clear that consumer curiosity and interest are high. However, potential buyers are seeking reassurance from trusted sources—friends, family, and acquaintances who already own EVs. They rely on these personal connections to provide them with the confidence they need to make the transition. Additionally, there is a strong desire to alleviate concerns about charging, which remains a significant barrier to adoption." Digital Dominates the Car Buying Journey: Consumers are overwhelmingly turning to the internet for car research. A whopping 43% say online resources are now more important than ever, and half of all car buyers begin their research into different brands and models online. This digital showroom shift demands automakers prioritize a user-friendly and informative online presence. Trusted Sources and the Power of Online Ads While online resources are crucial, car buyers still value trusted sources like manufacturer websites. However, the power of online ads cannot be underestimated. They inspire 81% of consumers to take action, particularly younger demographics, and EV considerers. What encourages users even more to consider a brand is to see it advertised across multiple screens (56%), highlighting the effectiveness of omnichannel marketing campaigns that combine online and TV advertising for a broader reach. The Always-On Branding Imperative Given the shortened decision-making timeframe, maintaining an always-on presence is crucial for automotive marketers. Brands must continuously engage potential buyers prior to and throughout their research journey, influencing them as the relevant set of options shrinks. Marisstella Marinkovic, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Nissan U.S. notes that a flexible ability to reach consumers wherever they are is imperative. She says, “It's really about understanding the behavior of customers. Some customers are online consuming different types of media, so we really have to be mindful of the different target audiences, how best to connect with the, and where they are." Henner Blömer VP of Global Client Partnerships, said: "In the face of seismic shifts within the auto marketing industry, proactivity is a winning strategy. By understanding the new dynamics of modern car buyers – driven by changing consumer behavior and a growing focus on sustainability – automakers and dealerships can optimize their strategies to cater to their evolving needs and preferences.” To explore these and other trends in the automotive buying journey, please download our report.

Rick Wiles Challenges Rep. Brian Mast in Florida's House District 21

Faith & Values News

A competitive two-candidate race has heated up in Florida's House District 21 after Florida's Secretary of State certified the name of a Ft. Pierce businessman to appear on the Republican Party primary ballot next to Congressman Brian Mast. Rick Wiles is a businessman, media entrepreneur, 25-year broadcasting and podcasting veteran, film producer, author, and retired pastor. He filed a certificate of candidacy in Tallahassee to unseat Congressman Brian Mast in the August 20 Republican primary election. Over 210,000 people viewed his candidacy announcement on X (formerly Twitter). Wiles said he was motivated to challenge Rep. Mast by four issues. Wiles said he was shocked and disgusted when he saw a photograph of Rep. Mast wearing an Israeli military uniform in Congress and learning that Mr. Mast has traveled to Israel to participate in IDF activities. Wiles blasted Mast's actions as "treasonous." He vowed to introduce the Brian Mast Foreign Military Uniform Anti-Treason Act that would make it a felony punishable by ten years in prison for any member of the U.S. Congress or congressional staff members to wear any foreign military uniform and to participate in foreign military activities in another country outside the legal jurisdiction of the Department of Defense or NATO. "Brian Mast dishonored every member of the American Armed Forces and all our veterans by wearing an IDF uniform and volunteering to serve in Israel,” said Wiles. "He particularly insulted my good friends in the USS Liberty Veterans Association who lost 34 shipmates during a surprise IDF attack in 1967.” Wiles said Mast's allegiance to the Israeli army makes the Florida congressman a national security risk. "Mr. Mast cannot be trusted with classified national security information that would benefit Israel." Wiles vowed that he would never wear a foreign military uniform. "Where do we draw the line?," Wiles asked. "Should we have a National Foreign Military Uniform Costume Day? If Mast can wear an IDF uniform to Congress, why can’t others wear Chinese, Ukrainian, French, or Russian army uniforms? Mr. Mast’s traitorous behavior crossed the line and opened the door for more members to wear foreign uniforms in Congress,” warned Wiles. "I hope the voters reprimand Mr. Mast for his undignified and outrageous behavior." Funding for foreign wars is the second reason Mr. Wiles decided to challenge Brian Mast for the Republican nomination. "Our Congress has lost its mind," said Wiles. "The Congress spends one trillion dollars every 100 days that it must borrow from foreign lenders so that Washington can give away the money to foreign governments. Brian Mast loves to finance foreign wars, especially Israel’s genocidal war against the Palestinian people," said Wiles. The challenger promised to vote against all bills that finance foreign wars and militaries. "It is time we take care of America,” said the Republican populist. Wiles said he would wage an aggressive door-to-door campaign throughout District 21 to meet voters face-to-face. "Mr. Mast already has millions of dollars in his campaign account, most of it from pro-Israel donors. I don’t have money, but I have the time and energy to walk door-to-door between now and August 20." Mr. Mast's support for a federal ban on semi-automatic rifles and shotguns was the third issue that motivated Mr. Wiles to challenge the incumbent. "Brian Mast has something in common with Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, and Adam Schiff. All five want to ban your ownership of semi-automatic rifles and shotguns,” said Wiles. “Mast is a gun-grabber. He’s got to go.” Rep. Mast's derogatory remarks about Fort Pierce were the fourth issue that pushed Wiles to enter the House race. "Mr. Mast trash-talked about my hometown. He humiliated the citizens of Ft. Pierce by calling it a God-awful, dilapidated city. He also embarrassed our Republican Mayor Linda Hudson by demanding her resignation. I hope the people of Fort Pierce teach Brian Mast a lesson in good manners on August 20," said Wiles. Mr. Wiles' company, Faith & Values Media Group Inc., produces and distributes faith-based media content. Mr. Wiles is a retired pastor of Flowing Streams Church. The church recently sold its 10-acre complex in Vero Beach, FL, and transitioned to a digital-only media church. Mr. Wiles teaches an online Bible study called Morning Manna that attracts thousands of students each weekday. Mr. Wiles has long hosted TruNews, a hard-hitting and controversial weekday news analysis and commentary program. He traveled twice as a news reporter to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, with the Trump White House in 2018 and 2020. Mr. Wiles has also attended numerous technology and FINTECH conferences in Europe and Asia. Jordan’s King Abdullah II invited Mr. Wiles in December 2022 to a royal banquet in Amman where the King unveiled his ambitious plan to preserve and enhance the historic site where Jesus was baptized in Jordan. The new Republican candidate is the author of Final Day: 10 Characteristics of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Mr. Wiles is the executive producer of Sacrificing Liberty, an epic four-part documentary film about Israel's 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. Mr. Wiles is an honorary member of the USS Liberty Veterans Association. Mr. Wiles and his wife Suzie will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on June 1. They have a son in Palm City and a daughter in Fort Pierce. The couple has ten grandchildren. Eight of them are adopted. Mr. and Mrs. Wiles reside on Muller Road in Fort Pierce.
