RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

And a dirty dozen more
Napolitano made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

Judge Andrew Napolitano is a former Judge of the New Jersey Superior Court and current libertarian pundit on that CNBC knock-off no one watches Fox Business Network who has a sweet Don Corleone coiffure. He is a major case of stopped clock syndrome. Ed Brayton has this to say about him:

He's one of those guys who can be absolutely right or batshit crazy depending on the issue being discussed. When it comes to civil liberties, he's actually pretty strong. He's an outspoken critic of asset forfeiture laws, prosecutorial immunity, abuse of eminent domain and is in the right on many other issues. But he's also one of those folks who rants about the evils of the 17th amendment, which is definitely crank territory.[1][2]

Napolitano is also notable for being one of the few pundits openly supporting Wikileaks and not calling for Julian Assange's assassination. On the other hand, he's incredibly paranoid and has endorsed 9/11 conspiracy theories,[3] gold buggery,[4] and Federal Reserve conspiracies.[5] Your mileage may vary.
