(Humor)

The internet has been having a lot of fun doing book reports in the style of Donald Trump. We want to play! We don’t have English degrees, but we do have law degrees. Above the Law now brings you Donald Trump’s interpretation our most famous legal decisions.

IRONY ALERT - Bar Association declined to publish report calling Trump 'libel bully'

A group of media lawyers from the American Bar Association commissioned a report on Donald Trump’s history of filing lawsuits, determining that the GOP presidential nominee is a “libel bully,” according to the New York Times.

But that report was never published because the association said it feared it would be sued by Trump, the GOP presidential nominee. The report discovered that the suits he filed never won in court.

“It is more than a little ironic that a publication dedicated to the exploration of First Amendment issues is subjected to censorship when it seeks to publish an article about threats to free speech,” said David J. Bodney, a former chairman of the media-law committee. Other former chairmen of the committee were also said they were dismayed by the association’s decision not to publish.

Susan Seager, a former journalist and First Amendment lawyer, compiled the study and researched seven lawsuits surrounding free speech that Trump or his companies filed. She said in an interview with the Times that the report is “based on court records.”

The report found Trump lost four suits, withdrew two and received a default judgment on one.

“Donald J. Trump is a libel bully,” the report said. “Like most bullies, he’s also a loser, to borrow from Trump’s vocabulary.”

According to the Times, the association wanted to ax the conclusion and Seager pointed out that the group’s decision highlights the effectiveness of the real estate mogul’s threats.

“The A.B.A. took out every word that was slightly critical of Donald Trump,” she said. “It proved my point.”

Trump has repeatedly threatened to file lawsuits throughout the presidential campaign, most recently in the instances of accusations that he sexually assaulted dozens of women.

Faux Climate change causing China seas of desert sand to grow

creating thousands of climate refugees

Deserts in China have expanded by 21,000 square miles since 1975. Our reporters visited the remote Tengger Desert to examine how climate change is uprooting the lives of the villagers there. Read their story and see the dramatic aerial images.

Guns don't kill people, toddlers do



In a brutal video meant to highlight the glut of gun in the U.S., it is recommended that toddlers who get a hold of guns and accidentally shoot their siblings or parents be incarcerated or deported.

The video is the creation of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

The video – called “Guns Don’t Kill People, Toddlers Do,” – features an assortment of small children handling guns while the narrator ominously warns that toddlers can’t be trusted and should be sent away.

“We need to lock them up,” the narrator explains. “Not the guns – that’s just un-American. Round them up. Deport them. Get them out of our country. And keep them away from guns.”

The idea behind the video is the common refrain from the NRA that “guns don’t kill people, people do.”

Eight Alabama Counties Refusing to Issue ANY Marriage Licenses

Probate judges in at least eight Alabama counties continued to refuse to issue any marriage licenses as of Tuesday, nearly 16 months after the U.S. Supreme Court found that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.

More than a dozen Alabama probate judges stopped issuing marriage licenses to both gay and straight couples at various points after a federal judge struck down Alabama's gay marriage ban on Jan. 23, 2015, and in the wake of the June 26, 2015, Supreme Court ruling.

On Tuesday, AL.com spoke with representatives of 14 of 15 county probate courts that gay marriage advocates identified as having indicated in recent months that they would not grant marriage licenses. Calls seeking comment from Geneva County Probate Judge Greg Hamic's office were not immediately returned.

Six of the judges said Tuesday that they are now issuing the licenses, but employees of Autauga, Choctaw, Clarke, Cleburne, Covington, Elmore, Pike and Washington counties confirmed that their probate judges are not currently granting any marriage licenses.

What's the saying again..............cutting off one's nose to spite one's face?! TOO FUNNY

Anything is acceptable in the name of religion

Killing 50,000+ chickens, goats, and Jesus in the name of forgiveness

What do chickens, goats, and Jesus all have in common? If they are killed in the right way, your sins can be forgiven.

Kapparot, the ritual slaughter of chickens, coincides with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, October 11-12 this year. Participants and PETA estimate that 50,000 chickens will be slaughtered in Brooklyn alone. The bird carcasses are supposedly donated to the poor, though they are often thrown in the trash. [WARNING: There is video evidence of the birds being thrown away, but it is disturbing. It shows bloody, dying birds on the ground, and trash bags full of dead chickens being thrown in a dumpster. It also shows the actual killing of the birds.]

For the ritual, Hasidic Jews grab a chicken by the wings and swing it around their heads three times to transfer their sins to the bird. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, while swinging the birds, the soon-to-be-redeemed supplicants chant, “This be my substitute, my vicarious offering, my atonement. This cock [or hen] shall meet death, but I shall find a long and pleasant life of peace!” If you know religion, you should know what comes next. The bird is ritually slaughtered. The slaughterer is vicariously redeemed—cleansed of all sins.

What would happen if Trump Refuses to Accept Election Results

After Wednesday night’s debate, the pundits and various media personalities are now focused entirely on Donald Trump‘s apparent admission that he won’t commit to accepting the election results. Well, precisely, he told Fox moderator Chris Wallace, “I will look at it at the time. I will keep you in suspense.”

The reaction has been intense. The Associated Press opened their article about the debate by saying that Trump threatened “to upend a basic pillar of American democracy.’ CNN’s David Gregory said his comments, “undermine our democracy, it’s way outside the tradition of our democracy and presidential races.” University of California-Irvine election law professor Rick Hasen said, “Trump’s gambit may be planned or, more likely, he’s just making it up as he goes along. It is no joke. Our democracy is a fragile thing which depends upon accepting the rules of the game.” Clearly, this is serious stuff. And Trump’s unwillingness to commit to respecting the election results is pretty unprecedented.
