Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system.
The Indiana Religious Coalition for Reproductive Justice is coming to the defense of a St. Joseph County woman charged with feticide.
Too bad this group can’t take the time to actually read Indiana law on the subject:
Ind. Code Ann. § 35-42-1-6 specifies that a person who knowingly or intentionally terminates a human pregnancy with an intention other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus commits feticide; the law does not apply to an abortion. The law was amended in 2009 to change feticide from a Class C to a Class B felony. (2009 Ind. Acts, P.L. 40, SB 236)

International fast food behemoth Burger King Worldwide Inc. confirmed Tuesday that it will pay about $11 billion to buy Canadian chain Tim Hortons Inc., which sells coffee, donuts, and other breakfast food fare. The deal would merge America’s second-largest burger chain, which is valued at nearly $10 billion, with the Canadian equivalent to Dunkin’ Donuts, which is valued at more than $8 billion. It would also move the new company’s headquarters to Canada, where corporate taxes are significantly lower.
More big U.S. companies are reincorporating abroad despite a 2004 federal law that sought to curb the practice. One big reason: Taxes.
It is a tax trick that has been around for years, but the pace of companies moving their headquarters overseas to lower their tax rate has sped up in the last decade.
Some wealthy Americans have moved overseas to avoid the long arm of Uncle Sam. Now, a growing number of companies are looking to do the same.
