    Remington Outdoor Company Inc, one of the largest U.S. makers of firearms, has reached out to banks and credit investment funds in search of financing that will allow it to file for bankruptcy, people familiar with the matter said on Thursday. The move comes as Remington reached a forbearance agreement with its creditors this week following a missed coupon payment on its debt, the sources said. The company has been working with investment bank Lazard Ltd (LAZ.N) on options to restructure its $950 million debt pile, Reuters reported last month. Remington is seeking debtor-in-possession financing that will allow it to...

    TWO BIG THINGS threaten the improving U.S. economy: a weak dollar and trade protectionism. Both routinely seduce policymakers, and both always result in bitter aftermaths with terrible political consequences. Yet some in the Trump administration are playing with both--and with fire. 1) The dollar. Great nations do not have weak currencies. Nonetheless, with a surety born of ignorance, Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin has bluntly stated his desire for a weak dollar. Thankfully, President Trump immediately contradicted him. But the fact that Mnuchin and his department want to undermine the value of our currency is troubling. Mnuchin has bought into the...

Ms Ball told the BBC: "We are asking people to be considerate regarding the items they place into coffins before the cremation process. "We have seen a rise in things like e-cigarettes, bottles of whisky and...

    Speaking to reporters during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, President Trump touted his decision to officially move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and slammed the Palestinians for their ongoing disrespect of the peace process. "What I did with Jerusalem was my honor," Trump said. "We give [Palestinians] hundreds of millions of dollars of aid and support. Tremendous numbers. Numbers nobody understands. That money is on the table and that money's not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace. Because I can tell...

    As part of their broad effort to distract from the Trump-Russia investigation and undermine its foundation, President Trump’s allies in Congress seek any way to discredit the now famous “dossier” authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, including by tying it or him to the Obama administration. Their latest target for guilt by association is the State Department under John Kerry. The suggestion by Trump allies is that somehow Kerry’s State Department was involved in the compilation or distribution of the dossier, an allegation for which there is zero direct evidence. While it’s true that Steele did have connections to...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to...

    Hillary Clinton’s dirtiest political trick to date is the multi-million dollar Russia dossier her campaign paid for to not only smear a political opponent, but to illegally spy on the campaign as well. The 35 page salacious document compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele is central to what prompted Mueller’s Russia witch hunt.
