They claimed they were not against gun owners, they just did not like people exercising the Second Amendment in their stores. From Citing a recent incident in which a customer was injured after the gun they...

    American denim giant Levi Strauss & Co. announced Tuesday that it is launching a series of new initiatives to benefit groups working to prevent gun violence. Levi Strauss’ CEO and President Chip Bergh wrote it Fortune on Tuesday that the company “simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work.” “You may wonder why a company that doesn’t manufacture or sell guns is wading into this issue, but for us, it’s simple,” Bergh wrote. “Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear of gun violence. It’s an...

    Levi Sanders, son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), said that if he's elected to Congress he won't support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) keeping her top spot in the Democratic Party. The younger Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District where, like his father, he supports far-left proposals, including Medicare for all and free public college. Sanders announced that instead of supporting Pelosi he would support Rep. Barabara Lee (D., Calif.) for the top spot among House Democrats, CBS News reports. Lee, who was co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus from...
  • 124-Year-Old Never-Worn Levi's Found in Arizona Cedar Chest

    They looked like brand-new blue jeans, but Jock Taylor knew those Levi's sat in an old family trunk for decades - maybe a century. Judging from their size (W: 44, L: 37) they probably belonged to his great-great grandfather Solomon Warner, an Arizona pioneer from the 1800s. If so, they're worth a small fortune, says Brit Eaton, a dealer in old jeans who actually searches abandoned mines for inventory. "Vintage denim can be worth thousands of dollars," Eaton says. "Finding Levi's pre-1900 is a massive rarity. That's the Holy Grail." ------------- Auctioneer Daniel Buck Soules recalls Taylor approaching him. "Why...

    Levi Johnston arrives at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday Aug. 9, 2009, in Universal City, Calif. NEW YORK — Levi Johnston writes in his upcoming book that his ex-girlfriend Bristol Palin was so angry about her mother's pregnancy with son Trig that she wanted to get pregnant, too. Johnston says when Bristol found out her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was expecting a baby she responded she should be having a baby, not her mother. He says she told him in March 2008, "let's get pregnant." His book, "Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs,"...

    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...

    Levi Johnston is appearing on "The Early Show" Friday (Aug. 27), but CBS has released some juicy tidbits from the interview. When asked by "Early Show" correspondent Betty Nguyen if he has any regrets, Johnston says, "I don't really regret anything. But the only thing I wish I wouldn't have done is to put out that apology [to Sarah Palin] 'cause it kind of makes me sound like a liar. And I've never lied about anything. So that's probably the only thing. The rest of the stuff I can live with." Really? He doesn't regret that silly Playgirl photoshoot? Hmm....

    Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have called off their second engagement after he told her he may have fathered a baby with another girl. The other girl was not identified, but a pregnant ex-girlfriend of Johnston has publicly denied he is the father. The 19-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told People magazine that the "final straw" was when Johnston told her he was going to Hollywood to see a hunting show, but actually went there to star in a music video mocking her family. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, says she hopes her daughter...

PHOTOS: Bristol and Levi, a look back But there's at least one voter who won't be swayed. "I never knew he had political aspirations," Palin, 19, sniffs to the new issue of Us Weekly about the father of her 19-month-old son, Tripp. "I'm glad that Levi has not given up on completing his education and is looking for steady employment."

    Levi Johnston is setting his sights on the dysfunctional family business. Johnston will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska -- yes, the same job that propelled Sarah Palin to governor of Alaska (and later, the vice presidential nomination) -- in a new reality project being pitched by Stone and Co. "Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office" will center on Johnston's newfound fame as the baby daddy to Palin's grandson Tripp. Johnston will trade on that notoriety to make his run for the Wasilla City Hall -- when he's not pursuing a career in Hollywood, of course.
