The Goldsmiths—Part CXXXV

-- Posted Friday, 2 April 2010 | | Source:

By R. D. Bradshaw


The Goldsmiths have previously cited the golden rule—He who has the gold does the ruling.  History for the last 6,000 years proves that little gem of truth.  More proof of that fact will follow below with a brief look at some history from Greece, the nation recently that has been in the news media with concern that she is bankrupt and may soon default on her debt.  It’s too bad that modern Greece lost sight of the value of gold in her philosophy of government.  If she would have focused more on gold and less on fiat money, she would probably be in good shape today. 


This backdrop takes us then to one of the most famous ancient writings expressing the philosophy of government some 2400 years ago in ancient Greece.  It was by the famous (or infamous), warped, Socialist Plato in his work on the Republic. has this commentary on Plato’s Republic:


“Plato believed that the ideal state comprises members of three distinct classes: rulers, soldiers, and the people. Although he officially maintained that membership in the guardian classes should be based solely upon the possession of appropriate skills, Plato presumed that future guardians will typically be the offspring of those who presently hold similar positions of honor. If citizens express any dissatisfaction with the roles to which they are assigned, he proposed that they be told the ‘useful falsehood’ that human beings (like the metals gold, silver, and bronze) possess different natures that fit each of them to a particular function within the operation of the society as a whole. (Republic 415a).”  


In other words, if you don’t like your station in life, while the super-rich plutocrats have higher positions, you must close your eyes and dutiful accept your destiny as being befitting your qualifications. 


Though the above remark uses the word soldiers for the number two, silver category, some translators from the Greek use other terms. calls them auxiliaries and says that they are in charge of the military, the police and executive duties.  Other reporters call the silver class “guards” for the rulers.  The soldier class was eventually modified to mean not just soldiers but also government bureaucrats designed to keep the rulers in power.  They are thus guards and assistants to the dynastic rulers with a task of protecting the rulers and insuring their hereditary continuation in power. 


Milan Martin (Vol 28, Ezekiel and YHWH’s Judgment for the Good News People at addressed this theme in his video on Lucifer’s Children:  He discussed the writings and philosophy of Plato.  Tragically, the ancient philosophy of people like Plato and his teacher Socrates have influenced Western Christian governments and our fiat, paper money system perhaps more than any other source in history.  It must be said that the concept of corporate ownership of property started in ancient Greece.  So the link to modern corporate Goldsmiths and money changers cannot be denied. 


Per Martin, Plato theorized that so-called humanity should be categorized and defined into the three specific groups, just noted above.  First, there was to be a gold class of people who would be ten super rulers over all other people. adds “Ruling and making laws is reserved for the Philosopher Rulers whose actions are all intended for the good of the state.”  Yes, we must be taught to believe that the gold, super-rich plutocrats ruling us do so for the good of the state and the people and not to benefit themselves or their own pockets. 


Apparently, these gold people were to essentially develop from ten monarchical families and/or other dynastic plutocratic families.  Typically, these families are the ones who fit into the super-rich, money-changer definition (as described in the Goldsmiths).  Hence, the position of being a gold ruler over so-called humanity would largely be an inherited right and especially in the vein of inherited money and/or power. 


Next, per Martin, there was to be a silver class of people who would number something much larger than the gold people.  The silver persons would be the movers, shakers, public rulers and visible leaders who would work for and serve the gold masters.  These silver people would be prostitute politicians, military leaders, government bureaucrats, guards, police supervisors, religious leaders, primary servants and workers for the behind the scenes gold masters. 


While the gold class was to involve ten dynastic families, there was a provision that some unique people in the silver class could in time and in theory graduate into the gold class.  So there always was a possibility of silver persons moving up in the hierarchy to become gold people (but this option would be very limited and hard to realize because the ten gold rulers received their rule as an inherited right of family descent and the total was limited to ten).  In that vein, it is almost impossible for a silver person to ever become a gold ruler (although it did happen in the 18th century when super-rich banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild became one of the ten.  Mayer and his money changing cousins slowly moved up to displace much of European royalty as gold class rulers). 


Since the silver people would be the visible, public leaders/workers, working for the gold rulers, they would be allowed to also become wealthy and powerful in their own right (as long as they continued to work for and serve the behind the scenes gold masters). 


Finally, Martin notes that there was to be the third category with everybody else.  These all others were in the bronze category.  This group consisted of the common people (as Bill Clinton calls them).  They are effectively cannon fodder and servants to the gold and silver rulers.  If some of the bronze people work hard and serve their masters well, they can, in time, possibly graduate into the silver class (of becoming leading politicians, preachers, militarists, businessmen, government bureaucrats, etc). 


My Take


In my thinking about Plato, he manifestly described the reality of the ensuing 2,400 years.  The governed Western world has been populated by these three classes of people.  In the gold class, we have seen the likes of dynastic families like the Rockefellers/Rogenfelders, Rothschilds, Warburgs, Bronfmans, Cecils, Oppenheimers, Lazards, etc (to include some part of European royalty in previous centuries).  It is these gold rulers who are the primary pushers for world government--thus, each one of them hopes to be the coming world ruler once the pecking order is established. 


Most of the world’s politicians and so-called government leaders are all in the silver class.  Also, many or most of the religious leaders also seem to be in the same silver state (although some students of history might argue otherwise).


Of course, the famous military and police leaders of history have traditionally been of the silver class while many of the lower ranking soldiers, policemen and peons probably were in the bronze class.  The Feb 24, 2003, “American Free Press” (p. 2) had a news item which quoted Rothschild relative and agent Henry Kissinger who said-- “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”  Possibly, this description fits some of the bronze and silver people in the military. 


In comments, in the Goldsmiths’ series, on the different groups working for world government, it must be pointed out that most of the group rulers are in the gold and silver classes.  While there can be some bronze participation, these bronze people are generally uninformed lackeys and janissaries (janissaries are blind, ignorant followers who have the same devotion to the cause as the top leaders) who simply don’t understand what all is going on (as evident with the lay people in most of the religious groups, low ranking soldiers, some government workers, etc). 


A Revisit to the Goldsmiths 98


In the Goldsmiths 98, focus was made to some more remarks from Milan Martin in his video on Lucifer’s Children.  Martin gives a good summary of people’s habits and thinking.  He noted that there are a few people out in the world who can be classified as doers.  They are the people who will get up off of their duffs and do things—either for good or for bad.  Some of them are different from most persons who believe “they don’t owe anything to others” or like to ask “what’s in it for me?”  But the doers, both good and bad, are a very small group of people—perhaps 2-3% of the population. 


There is a larger group (perhaps 4-6%) who can be defined as watchers.  They watch what the doers are doing and critique the doers.  Sometimes the watchers will do something; but almost always with the selfish attitude of getting something out of it for themselves.  And then, there are the all others (maybe around 92% of the population). 


The all others usually don’t do anything and don’t care about anything.  Perhaps their focus is more on who won this week’s football game; which movie star is dating whom at this time; what they are going to have for dinner tonight; what happened today with Tiger Woods, O. J. Simpson or Michael Jackson; and/or what color to paint their rooms/houses (as speaker David Wegener used to say). 


And just like the all others don’t do anything or care about anything, most of them will never spend their own money on anything except their own, selfish, frivolous pursuits of nothing (the same thing on money is often true with the doers and watchers as well).  If the all others do anything at all, it is selfishly to get something out of it in the way of personal gain for themselves (yes, the “what’s in it for me” thinking).  It’s too bad, but most Americans fit into this third category.  They are truly in the bronze class of people described by Plato. 


Government Workers


Yet, while it is probably true that many of the peon or lower level government workers are in the bronze class, along with the rest of Bill Clinton’s common people, many of the higher level government workers and bureaucrats are manifestly in the silver class.  For sure, it is their job to protect, guard, and support the ruling plutocratic families now making up the modern Rothschild Cabal of super rich bankers. 


In this context, the silver workers will always expend all of their energy, means, resources and efforts to promote the safety, security and benefits for the ruling gold masters.  This is why in a state of internal revolution, anarchy and uprising, the government leaders will pull out all of the stops with martial law and a dictatorship to protect and serve the gold rulers.  The elite rulers are always the primary focus and devotion of the silver workers running the government(s); in contrast to the bronze masses which get little or nothing from the silver government bureaucrats. 


But I mention these government workers at the supervisory and management levels to stress the point that though the Rothschild Cabal is presently trying to force deflation on the contemporary American society, and though many or most workers are getting laid off and/or receiving little or no pay raises, the Cabal has arranged for its silver class of guard people to receive a different future in 2010.  This little fact proves conclusively that Plato’s Republic guides and directs public affairs here in 2010. 


For a backdrop on this issue, the reader may recall a story from USA Today on Dec 11, 2009 by Dennis Cauchon which said that in the first 18 months of the current recession, federal employees making $100,000 or more per year in basic salary (not counting bonuses or overtime) had increased from 14% to 19% mainly due to pay hikes.  Cauchon contrasted this rise to a loss of 7.3 million jobs in the private sector in the same period.  So while 7.3 million private sector jobs were lost, almost one in five federal workers saw their annual pay go to $100,000 or more.  Also, it was revealed last week that at least a couple of thousand Congressional staff people are now making $100,000 or more per annum. 


Then on December 24, 2009, the Wall Street Journal had a story by Damian Paletta and James R. Hagerty that the Federal Housing Finance Agency had approved compensation plans for the top executives at the government run Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac agencies whereby each will receive from $4 to $6 million per year.  These hefty salaries come just after the US taxpayers forked over hundreds of billions of dollars to bail out the agencies. 


I have mentioned before in the Goldsmiths that many post office clerks are making $35,000 a year with annual pay raises and regular step pay increases.  In terms of qualifications, postal clerks do not begin to compare with most responsible positions in the private sector. 


If all of this wasn’t bad enough, the Obama administration has announced that Federal workers are to receive an over-all pay increase of two percent this year.  The military soldiers are also getting an across the board pay increase.  Who is not getting pay increases from the Rothschild Cabal controlled state?  Well, social security recipients are not getting Cost of Living increases.  As the Rothschild Cabal bureaucrats explain, there was “no inflation” in 2009 to grant social security recipients any COLA increases. 


In another matter, Obama recently proposed giving social security recipients each $250.  Immediately, the same people in Congress who weeks earlier voted to send multiplied billions overseas in foreign aid (which benefit the big banks and super rich plutocrats) and give the To-Big-To-Fail Banks $700 billion in TARP funds and $800 billion in stimulus money, and allowed the Fed to give the same big banks $2 trillion in bailout money said no on giving $250 to social security people.  You can readily see who calls the shots in the US Congress—the voters or the gold masters who own the To-Big-To-Fail Banks?


Interestingly, besides the pay increases coming to the silver guards, auxiliaries, and government bureaucrats, working to support and protect the ten super-rich gold rulers, some of the silver executives in the private sector are also either getting huge pay raises or bonuses.  Many of them are now in the millionaire or billionaire category, as was described in the Goldsmiths 133 and 134. 


Now, with this back-drop, who else in society is not getting pay raises?  Well, the push is on throughout the private sector to hold salaries and pay flat for workers at the lower levels of employment.  Even many state and local government workers are learning that this year they will not get a pay raise.  In fact, many can expect to be laid off. 


The Bottom Line


So what we have happening is that the ten super-rich, gold-class, dynastic families ruling the Western Christian civilization are making profits hand over fist in their controlled depression that they have forced on much of the world (on how the bankers have caused the current depression, see Understanding Money and War XIV at  Along with the gold-class making more and more money and wealth, they have arranged for their subordinate silver class supervisors, managers, sub-bosses, guards, auxiliaries, government workers, etc to also get huge pay raises and bonuses. 


And who has been left out of this cycle on getting more money?  Why, the so-called common people at the low, bronze level.  Generally, they will get nothing; except increasing numbers of them can expect to be laid off and out of work as the gold-class Rothschild Cabal bosses further the current depression.  So we are fast developing into a world of haves versus have-nots as described in the Goldsmiths 133 and 134. 


Plato may have been confused and a very evil man.  But his ideas on the future for man’s government(s) have come true.  Certainly, his take is the ruling philosophy today.  None of us can deny the real world.  Finally, I have long argued that the ten dynastic families, ruling the Western Christian civilization today, will continue their rule for the immediate future (on this, see Understanding Money and War XV at 


Some persons would like to see the Cabal lose its ruler-ship.  But I don’t think it can happen any time soon.  It will take a major upheaval to upset the power and control that the gold rulers (in the form of ten dynastic families connected by blood, race and genes) have over the rest of the people.  I am sorry to say I don’t see the Cabal losing out in the immediate horizon. 




Back issues of the Goldsmiths, by the editor of the Analysis of News, can be accessed from a Google or Yahoo search engine by typing in “R. D. Bradshaw” Goldsmiths.  Several hundred web sites can be found with the back issues and with translations to Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Polish, Chinese, Japanese and other foreign languages.  Finally, the “Archives-Goldsmiths” of this website ( ) has all of the Goldsmith articles issued to date. 


Besides the revelations contained in the Goldsmiths’ articles, the work of the plutocratic financial market manipulators to conspiratorially manipulate and control the financial markets (to make more and more profits and install a world government under their management) is also addressed at length in the periodic analysis of the news and in other articles produced at  This website has an article of interest to any person interested in understanding the market Manipulators.  It is the Hidden Secret of the Manipulators, why they succeed and how to follow their manipulations. 


Readers of the above articles are invited to visit and become a subscriber to regularly read some of the material from the world of information which will further reveal how extensive the manipulation, control and dishonesty realities are in the financial, currency and commodity markets, not only in the US, but indeed around the world.  To go to the Home Page of this web site, click here:
