Worst Colleges: Make Sure You Don't Go Here! Tabs, Fri., Dec. 18, 2020

"Trump silent as massive cyber hack poses grave risk to US." Well no shit, CNN, what do you want him to do, say don't do that Russia?

Buzzfeed congratulates itself on the FINCEN Files reporting, as it should, and notes that anti-money-laundering amendment finally tucked into the defense spending bill (which Trump keeps coming up with very odd reasons to veto!), after all these years.

How will we deal with the Q people, who used to be normal, just like us? "We Need To Learn To Talk To (And About) Accidental Conspiracists"

I bet you don't know who Ruby Freeman is, and that would make you a normal person. Here's some background.
In reality, Ruby runs one of those kiosks in the middle of the mall that sells ladies' accessories, purses — that sort of thing. She also helped count ballots in Georgia last month. Her business is called Lady Ruby's Unique Treasures, and I don't recommend you look at the Instagram comments for that store anymore.

That's because, on 4chan and far-right blogs, she is some sort of Sith Lord/Al Capone combo, who personally stole the election by doing…something with briefcases? That part's unclear, but what the QAnon people are certain of is Ruby Freeman — a 60-something election worker who also sells handbags at the mall — is part of the global conspiracy to steal the election.

These two California women are in prison for murdering their unborn children by using drugs. So that must be why Axios headlines that I don't click tell me California AG Xavier Becerra is "in the hot seat" or whatever. Because he shows up a couple thousands words into this story saying California law is clear that women can't be prosecuted for pregnancy outcomes in California, so he's probably "in the hot seat" for "baby killing extremist," yeah, it's probably that. — LA Times
