    Monday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin had enough with the recent liberal media puff pieces on Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and said there is “nothing heroic” about Romney opposing President Donald Trump. “Mitt Romney is now working with the media and the Left and the NeverTrumpers to try and dislodge Trump. That’s what he’s doing; there’s nothing heroic about it, nothing heroic at all,” Levin said. “Because if Mitt Romney is successful, ultimately, one of those Democrats running for president will be the president of the United States, and our country will be changed forever.” “Mitt Romney is...

    Yujing Zhang stalled jury selection after appearing in court dressed in a brown jumpsuit instead of civilian clothes, claiming she wasn’t given any underwear. Dressing defendants in civilian clothing is common practice during trials to prevent jury prejudice. The 33-year-old Shanghai business consultant was eventually taken to a holding cell, where she changed into a blouse and khaki pants that were found in her hotel room after Secret Service agents arrested her at the Florida club in March. Zhang fired her public defenders in June against the recommendation of U.S. District Judge Roy Altman in order to represent herself with...

The company states you should swap out...

    OCALA, Fla. - Ocala police say they are looking for a woman who committed arson inside a Macy’s Tuesday morning. Officers said the woman entered the department store at the Paddock Mall shortly after 10 a.m. and walked around the store for approximately 45 minutes. Police said at some point the woman set fire to a rack of underwear. “It was a bunch of smoke rolling out and people were walking – running outside,” said Kortnee Eubanks, who was in the store at the time. “The [Macy’s] staff believe that they smelled gas, so we’re not sure if we tried...

    The seven women whose allegations ended Rob Miller's bid to lead Utah's Democrats say the party should continue an investigation of Miller because "a culture of pervasive sexual harassment has been revealed." The group, which includes a former Salt Lake County Democratic chairwoman and a former state Senate candidate among other well-known Democrats, sent a letter to party leadership Thursday after Miller announced his exit from the race to become chairman and his withdrawal from the party.

    COLLINSVILLE -- A special-education teacher has been removed from the classroom after allegedly forcing students to remove their underwear. According to a letter sent to parents earlier this week, the teacher observed feces on the classroom floor at Webster Elementary School on March 30. To determine which student had soiled his pants, the teacher had each child go into a private bathroom stall by himself, remove his underpants, put his clothes back on and exit the stall to show his underpants to the teacher. "The teacher was not present in the bathroom stall and at no time was your child...

    The Clintons donated used underwear to charity, wrote it off on taxes Posted on May 4, 2015 This tidbit is from the Arkansas years. While serving as Governor and First Lady of Arkansas, the Clintons donated used underwear to charity. Even worse, they claimed the donation as a deduction on their taxes. They must have really been “dead broke”…. Here is the report from The New York Times: In previous returns, when Mr. Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas and his wife was a partner in a Little Rock law firm, the Clintons had gone so far as to deduct...

    The LDS Church is asking for Mormons to weigh in about Temple garments. LDS officials are requesting public comments about the fit, fabric, size and style in an effort to propose changes and improvements. The move comes after last year when the Utah-based faith posted photos and videos of the misunderstood clothing to explain them to so-called gawkers.
  • State Takes Over Arkansas School District That Had To Make Teachers Wear Underwear

    In August 2013, the district announced — to the great dismay of the teachers union — a dress code that would require teachers to wear underwear. Every single day. Female teachers would have to wear bras, too. And the very worst of all: No spandex. (RELATED: Little Rock School District Will Now Make Teachers Wear Underwear) Now, a mere 18 months later, the Arkansas Department of Education has voted to assume control over management of the school district, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.

    The notorious underwear bomber's plot in 2009 to blow up a plane on Christmas Day failed because the explosives became 'degraded' after he wore the same pair of underpants for two weeks, according to a U.S. official. Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was on a suicide mission when he attempted to detonate a bomb in his underpants as the plane, en route from Amsterdam, approached Detroit.

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The anti-amnesty group, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), is calling on Americans to mail their “gently used underwear” to President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner in response to a government request for new briefs for the recent surge of illegal immigrants being held by border patrol. ALIPAC is responding to a Department of Homeland Security solicitation seeking thousands of pairs of “White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs” – ranging from medium sizes to hundreds of 6X-large pairs – to meet the basic clothing needs of thousands of immigrants detained by Immigration & Customs Enforcement. “Obama...

    Authorities say a man stole a New York City bakery truck and began delivering loaves of bread to random businesses. Police say David Bastar hopped into the Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on Manhattan's Upper East Side early Monday while the real driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria. Wearing only his underwear, Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread - but not to the bakery's customers. Joe Grimaldi is the owner of the Queens bakery. He says the bandit "dropped a lot of bread" worth about $5,000. He says the bakery later accommodated...

    NAIROBI, Kenya (CBSDC/AP) - A local pastor has ordered all women who attend service at Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church to refrain from wearing undergarments while attending so that they can more easily receive the spirit of Jesus Christ. The Kenyan Daily Post is reporting that a pastor identified only as “Reverend Njohi” claimed bras and underwear are not godly. Additionally, the paper says Njohi wants women who attend service at the church to be “free,” and that there would be consequences for those who do not comply. According to the UK Metro, most women did, in fact, show up at...

    300 students have signed a petition to have the creepy, yet lifelike statue removed. In part, the petition reads; "This highly realistic sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work in this space." The Boston Globe reports the piece is called "Sleepwalker," it was put up to...

    There has been a lot of very good discussion on yesterday’s blog post on the banishment of “dirty dancing” at many school dances. Much of the discussion has centered on modesty. Modesty is a beautiful, essential and often diminished virtue in today’s “tell-all,” ”show-all” world. There are many good definitions of modesty. Websters dictionary defines modesty first as freedom from conceit or vanity and secondly as propriety in dress, speech or conduct. It is the second definition that concerns us. While the Websters definition of modesty is surely accurate I would like to say that the most beautiful and thought-provoking...
