Global New Deal Planned?

GORDON BROWN hopes to forge a partnership with President Barack Obama in Washington this week, to call for a “global new deal” to lift the world out of recession.

As he prepares for his first White House visit since the president’s inauguration, the prime minister has hinted that he is ready to make further tax cuts to boost the UK economy.

Brown will meet Obama on Tuesday and address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. Aides say he has both to demonstrate to a sceptical British public that he commands the respect of the president, and to persuade the American political establishment that global action is needed to rescue the US economy.

Brown is under pressure to persuade American political leaders to sign up to bold aims for the G20 summit of industrial and leading developing nations, which is to be held in London next month.

Can you tell me, you know, what is the G-20 doing? What is happening around the world with Gordon Brown — who will be in Congress next week — that says, hey, I think we should have a new New Deal but a Global New Deal?

PAUL: Yes, they're frantic, and they're panicking. And you have the central banks from the G7, and I'm sure, are meeting constantly to plan the next monetary structure. We had a major structure reform in Bretton Woods in '44, it collapsed in '71.

We've had the dollar reserve standard from '71 up until last year. That's collapsed. It's gone. It's done. And they have to have a new monetary standard. And they're planning behind the scenes. We're not entitled to know anything about it. Under the law, they don't have to tell us a thing.

But believe me, they're planning. They're panicky, because they don't have an easy answer but there are major changes going on. I have argued this case for years...

BECK: OK. But...

PAUL: ... that we were working on destroying our whole system the way we were operating.

BECK: OK. So, Congressman, I mean, no offense, because I think you are the one guy who has had this right from the very beginning, but the problem is, if you say stuff like this, it sounds like a conspiracy theory, and I can't get — I mean, there's nobody in the media that is reporting this, there's nobody that's talking about this stuff but it only makes common sense. If people know that the is end is coming of the system that we have, and I'm not saying that, you know, I'm not saying that we're all going to, you know, cats and dogs are going to be sleeping with each other, et cetera, what I saying is, there is going to be a change coming.

Rupert Murdoch said that nations will be redefined in this period. You know that people at the global level are looking at it and saying, OK, what's it going to look like? Where can we find out? Where do we start to look?

PAUL: Well, you should look to the Congress but they pay much attention either.

BECK: No, they're not.

PAUL: And there will be a realignment and there is a struggle going on with us who believe that we should have national sovereignty, we should be out of the U.N., out of the World Bank, out of the IMF, in no world government. But that is the movement that we're going in, that's the direction we're going in.

But others are planning to go one step further. They weren't satisfied with the Bretton Woods; they weren't satisfied with the dollar standard. Now, they want to probably modify the special drawing rights of the IMF which they tried and then failed, but they want to control capital and they want to control the natural resources of the world.

So — and they're not — they're not nationalistic at all. They believe in world government...

BECK: Well...

PAUL: ... and they're more out in the open now than they were 25 years ago.,2933,500065,00.html
