Activist Post Interrupted

By Rady Ananda

Without prior warning, on Friday, Sept. 23, Google took down the popular site, ActivistPost.com, as well as their back-up site, also hosted by blogger.com.

Co-founders Michael Edwards and Eric Blair are working closely with Google to restore their access to the site, at least “long enough so we can access all of our data, but we’ll see,” Blair told COTO Report.

The site has not been hacked, he assures AP readers. This was a deliberate move by Google.

Founded in June 2010, the site had a meteoric rise, as the visitor stats from compete.com reveal in the graph below:

Globalists secret weapon exposed: Tech kill chips!

By Alex Jones

May 16:  As the world is distracted by the royal nuptials and Obama’s ever changing death soap opera of CIA asset Osama bin Laden, the technocrats are rolling out the next phase of their global control grid.

Google’s “Double Irish” and the “Dutch Sandwich” to Avoid US Taxes

By Numerian

Google, which encourages employees to “Do No Evil”, managed this past quarter to reduce its international tax rate to 2.4% of net income, despite earning most of its revenue in countries like the US, the UK, Germany, and Japan that have corporate tax rates of at least 25%. In comparison, the average recent effective US tax rate for 2,000 companies was 28.3%.

In a report published today in Bloomberg, Google was described as using tax techniques known as the “Double Irish” and the “Dutch Sandwich” to avoid paying taxes in the countries in which it earns most of its revenue. Google uses a Dublin subsidiary and declares that 88% of its overseas sales are generated by this office which employs 2,000 people. Ireland maintains a very low tax rate to encourage foreign investment, but it then adds an important benefit: it allows companies to shift revenues to low-tax countries using transfer pricing. Google shifts its Ireland revenues to The Netherlands (Irish law requires using an EU country for the first leg of this shift). The revenue is then transferred to Bermuda, which has a minimal tax rate. In the meantime, Google uses transfer pricing to shift its expenses to high-tax countries in order to declare tax write-offs.
