There are some great weaselly-worded phrases to look out for - once spotted, I recommend you treat everything the organisation says as deceitful and utter rubbish:

"The Discovery Institute" (American fundamentalist group opposed to 'discovery' of anything by the scientific method, but instead tell you to believe what a lot of old, wealthy white men tell you about god)
Ahh; so a form of oxymoron then like 'American Intelligence'.
