The Wickedpedia glossary of terms is down currently while we update the program. The Wickedpedia is a glossary of common terms (kafkaesque, Orwellian, etc.), people, places, health, etc. with convenient tooltips that popup in a display with a summary and ‘Read More…’ link. Look for a new improved tooltips soon.
A privately held security company launched in 2007 headquartered in Switzerland and with over $1bn in international sales. They link data from the Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics and Cloud Computing to form a spy grid for governments. The AGT family of companies have participated in numerous suspect, if not criminal activities. The leaders of the company were Clinton friends and major donors to the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons in turn helped promote AGT. AGT then participated in numerous shady and criminal activities, the worst of which were selling US ITAR regulated products and information to the Russians and Chinese. The DOJ/FBI started an investigation of AGT but then covered it up. The investigation into the Clinton Foundation and AGT was material to the 2016 US election and yet the FBI and DOJ concealed it from the American public. (Read more at Gateway Pundit)
One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to “fabricate an enemy”. Al Qaeda is an outside, fabricated enemy personified by Osama bin Laden to have “threatened and attacked America”. Ironically, Al Qaeda –the “outside enemy of America” as well as the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks– is a creation of the US Central Intelligence Agency and Israel. Pre-emptive war directed against “Islamic terrorists” is required to defend the Homeland. In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this “outside enemy” served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a “just war” with a humanitarian mandate.Continue reading
A trade association founded more than 140 years ago as the Manufacturing Chemists’ Association and is now an operation with a $100 million annual budget representing the interests of 155 corporate members, including chemical companies Dow, DuPont and Olin; pharmaceutical firms Bayer, Eli Lilly and Merck; and petrochemical conglomerates BP, ExxonMobil and Shell. Over the years, the organization has successfully delayed, weakened and blocked science-based health, environmental and workplace protections at the state, national and even international levels.

A leftist, secular-progressive organization. It was run for its first 30 years by an American named Roger Baldwin, who helped found it in 1920. Baldwin supported communism, but later denounced it in his book, A New Slavery, which condemned "the inhuman communist police state tyranny". This organization pursues a leftist agenda that includes censoring prayer and recognition of God in public institutions, such as public schools. Currently, Anthony Romero is the first openly gay CEO to run the organization. Declassified documents and letters link early ACLU leaders with Communist Party. Helen Chaffee Biehle also indicated in her article "Focus: The Seduction of the American Public Library" that the ACLU was also nihilistic and individualistic in its philosophy since its founding.Continue reading
A nonprofit organization founded in 1978 by Elizabeth Whelan that bills itself as an independent research and advocacy organization devoted to debunking "junk science" however it is a a group of scientists and journalists that report findings of studies done by the companies that manufacture pesticides and the philosophies shared by big business with financial interests at stake in the name of Biotechnology. It often does battle with environmentalists and consumer safety advocates, wading into public health debates to defend fracking, to fight New York City's attempt to ban big sugary sodas, and to dismiss concerns about the potential harms of the chemical bisphenol-A (better known at BPA) and the pesticide atrazine. The group insists that its conclusions are driven purely by science. It acknowledges that it receives some financial support from corporations and industry groups, but ACSH, which reportedly stopped disclosing its corporate donors two decades ago, maintains that these contributions don't influence its work and agenda.

The year is 1847. Physicians in America are not enjoying competing with inexpensive, natural remedies, which are offered by Indians and skilled midwives. These are remedies which are effective but are not profitable or patentable, so elitist physicians join forces and form an alliance called the AMA, the American Medical Association. Not just any doctor was allowed to join this new, prestigious organization, but only the “regulars” everyone knew well, and those who did NOT use herbal remedies, homeopathy or Native American remedies – for anything. By the turn of 1900, word got out fast. The AMA is “hiring” and if you join the “patentable remedy industry” there would be plenty of money to go around. Critics called it the “Great American Fraud,” and the AMA doesn’t like critics, so they created an anti-critic department called the Department of Investigation, or DOI, to hunt down and SHUT DOWN doctors and healers alike that were still using natural remedies, and thus digging into the profits of the AMA.

the largest 'scientific' and 'professional' organization of psychologists in the U.S. with around 117,500 members with an annual budget of around $115m. The organization is controlled by the NWO culture destroying interests and homosexual lobby. This lobby has, since 1973, managed to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder from the DSM and turn the tide such that now 'homophobia' is the actual mental illness. Likewise, in 2012, Gender Identity Disorder was removed under pressure from the powerful lobby. There are 54 divisions of the APA—interest groups covering different subspecialties of psychology or topical areas. The APA "makes resolutions and public policy statements on issues for which there is little or inadequate science." (source) According to newsmagazine Newsweek the APA represents psychotherapists without medical degrees and in 2006 had 150,000 members. Continue reading
A chain of over a dozen abortion facilities on the east coast that has seen more than its share of scandal. There have been ample legal grounds for the closure of its seven New Jersey abortion facilities, which should have been shut down years ago. Yet, American Women’s Services has survived of one legal disgrace after another. “The fact that this seedy abortion chain remains open is one of the greatest failures of the age of modern medical oversight,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. American Women’s Services was founded by the notorious abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, whose long and sordid history of deceit, corners-cutting on women’s health, and criminality could fill a book.

An organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state and federal levels. AFP consist of more than 1.2 million members in all fifty states. Founded by David Koch in 2004, Tim Phillips is the organizations president. They are based in the Washington, D.C. area and operate 30 chapters nationwide. As citizen activists, they organize events, write letters to the editor, and petition their lawmakers to uphold freedom and prosperity. AFP has a separate entity called Americans for Prosperity Foundation that is committed to educating citizens about economic policy and a return of the federal government to its Constitutional limits. Interestingly, the Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor-class organizations is fighting President Trump’s economic nationalist agenda ahead of the 2020 election with efforts to give amnesty to illegal aliens and an anti-tariff legislation campaign that would hurt American jobs.1 Continue reading
They call themselves “antifascists” (Antifa for short). They are most notable for wearing masks and dressing all in black (known as Black Bloc) when they engage in violent, criminal activity. They claim to be fighting against fascism, racism, sexism, and capitalism. They claim to be fighting against hate — as they scream hateful profanities and beat their targeted opponents to bloody pulps. They have attached themselves to the Democratic Party and to liberal-left activist groups, none of which seem inclined to disassociate themselves from the violent anarchist/communist terrorists masquerading as defenders of the downtrodden. Indeed, the liberal elites in political circles and the establishment media have embraced the Antifa militants, excusing their examples of “excessive” violence as understandable outbursts of youthful idealism and necessary resorts to force when confronting the evil Nazis, fascists, racists — or Republicans. The movement has both above-ground and underground elements. The above-ground activists will engage in public demonstrations with their faces uncovered, and some will publicly identify with Antifa and even give interviews. The most notorious aspect of Antifa, apart from its violence, is its Black Bloc side, the underground members who dress in black, cover their faces, and carry out collective “direct action” (often criminal activities) as coordinated units.

A centralized hub that runs nonprofit arms that in turn have spawned a nexus of hundreds of front organizations outwardly designed to appear grassroots but actually working against ordinary people by expanding government control in the lives of Americans. Arabella’s vast network was unmasked in an extensive exposé by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, which documents the shadowy system developed by, housed in and staffed by the for-profit, privately held Arabella Advisors. The Arabella firm in turn manages four nonprofits: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund. These nonprofit entities play host to hundreds of groups and projects that promote interests and political movements strategically deployed in a long-term campaign to nudge the country to the left.
A dirty offshore bank that the CIA used to run guns to Hussein, finance Osama bin Laden, move money in the illegal Iran-Contra operation and carry out other "agency" black ops. The Bushes also benefited privately; one of the bank's largest Saudi investors helped bail out George W. Bush's troubled oil investments. BCCI was founded in 1972 by a Pakistani banker, Agha Hasan Abedi, with the support of Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and head of the United Arab Emirates. Its corporate strategy was money laundering. It became the banker for drug and arms traffickers, corrupt officials, financial fraudsters, dictators and terrorists.Continue reading
The apex of the financial control system in Basle, Switzerland - a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks, which are themselves private corporations, and only interacts with central banks. It is self-described as the "central bank for central bankers" that controls the vast global banking system with the precision of a Swiss watch. Little is known or written about the BIS and that is how they like it. It is not accountable to any public authority and operates with complete autonomy and self-sufficiency. Some historians credit Owen Young as the idea-man for the BIS. It was actually Hjalmar Schacht who first proposed the idea, which was then carried forward by the same group of international bankers who brought us the Dawes and Young Plans. As Georgetown historian, Carroll Quigley noted: "The Power of financial capitalism had another far reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole."

The Bilderberg Group is an annual conference of elites so secretive it was nameless until being coined “The Bilderberg Group” after its original meeting place. There is a core of 39 regulars with nearly 130 elites in politics, banking, business, and the media invited each year. For over 20 years, Daniel Estulin has investigated and researched the Bilderberg Group’s far-reaching influence on business and finance, global politics, war and peace, and control of the world’s resources and its money. His book, “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,” states that in 1954, “the most powerful men in the world met for the first time” in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, “debated the future of the world,” and decided to meet annually in secret. They called themselves the Bilderberg Group with a membership representing a who’s who of world power elites, mostly from America, Canada, and Western Europe with familiar names like David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, Lloyd Blankfein, George Soros, Donald Rumsfeld, Rupert Murdoch, other heads of state, influential senators, congressmen and parliamentarians, Pentagon and NATO brass, members of European royalty, selected media figures, and invited others – some quietly by some accounts like Barack Obama and many of his top officials.

In 1999, Microsoft founder Bill Gates gave over $20M to Johns Hopkins to establish a wing of the hospital where the Foundation was born and is now the largest private foundation in the world and easily the most powerful. This foundation has always hidden behind the mantra of “Health and help” for women in third world countries thus manufacturing consent for its activities through the manipulation of public opinion. The thrust of the foundation has been working with the big Pharma companies, to create vaccines for the masses in these impoverished countries. Continue reading
