January 17, 2015 – Archives/Pod Casts Hour 1 – Hour 2 – Hour 3
Hour 1: OPEN DISCUSSION (Barb Adams & John Higgins) on “Expats, Bitcoin, and Deep Pockets”
Prominent bitcoin investor Roger Ver, aka “Bitcoin Jesus,” has been denied a visa to enter the U.S., even though he was born in America. According to consulate officials, there is a risk of him staying in the U.S. illegally due to the lack of “ties” to his residence country in the Caribbean islands.
Ver was en route to a bitcoin conference in Miami to give a speech on digital currency, and this latest refusal was the third time in eight days Ver was denied a U.S. travel visa.
Last year, Ver renounced his citizenship and moved to St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean, an island known for its favorable tax situation. Under a program called “Citizenship by Investment,” the government of St. Kitts and Nevis offers citizenship for those who want to avoid high taxation levels in their home countries.
Which brings up a related topic, corporations and taxes. Quite possibly the biggest tax scam ever, corporate America parks profits overseas to avoid paying billions in taxes. Corporate tax inversions are an area of tax law that has brought recent scrutiny. Politicians call the practice “un-American,” while many corporations embrace the practice as a legal way to reduce tax burden.
JOIN Barb and John as they talk everything from renouncing citizenship to bitcoin to corporate tax inversions.

Hour 3: William von Holst – for Imre Vallyon
Joining the show during the final hour is William von Holst, Editor of author Imre Vallyon’s new book, The New Heaven and the New Earth.
The New Heaven and the New Earth completes Imre Vallyon’s trilogy (along with Planetary Transformation and The New Planetary Reality) and explains the inner causes of the coming planetary changes (the New Heaven) and how the changes will play out in real-world events (the New Earth).
We see these changes all around every day – global upheaval and natural disasters, global divisions and alarming cosmic forces. Why are these changes occurring, and will how we react to them decide human destiny?
To help humanity respond correctly, William will talk about Imre’s esoteric knowledge and understanding from his direct perception of Higher Reality. He’ll also provide practical meditation and other techniques which will assist in raising the consciousness.
Imre Vallyon was born in Budapest, Hungary, and emigrated to New Zealand at the age of sixteen. Since 1980 he has dedicated his life to teaching the Wisdom Science through his extensive writings and through workshops and retreats around the world.
In 2008 Imre won the Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Book Award for his four volume treatise Heavens and Hells of the Mind, which the judges described as “…a remarkable and exhaustive work on human consciousness and the wisdom of the ages.”
Imre is also the author of Planetary Transformation, The Art of Meditation, The Divine Plan, The Magical Mind, and The New Planetary Reality.
Vallyon is the Founder of the Foundation for Higher Learning, an international spiritual school formed to help provide people with the opportunity to practice spiritual work within a group environment, and the Director of Sounding-Light Publishing, which was founded in 2006 “to produce high-quality books and multimedia for those who feel an affinity for universal wisdom and multi-disciplinary knowledge.”
