[Marxism] "We don't care"

‘“There was polite applause, but a lot of people didn’t clap,” said a club
insider privy to the exchange. “There was a lot of talk that [Supreme Court
Justice Anthony] Kennedy sold out,” allegedly having agreed to retire from
the bench in exchange for President Trump’s picking his conservative former
law clerk *Brett Kavanaugh* to succeed him.

Who was saying this? Was it the “left” liberals who were saying that
Kennedy sold out? Nope. It was the elite of the capitalist class at the
Bohemian Club’s annual retreat in Sonoma County, California, according to
SF Chronicle reporters Matier and Ross
<https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/matier-ross/article/At-Bohemian-Club-retreat-conservative-crowd-13102110.php>
.

Matier and Ross continue: ‘In contrast, over at the Owl’s Nest encampment,
we’re told TV pundits *Chris Matthews*, *David Gergen *and *David Brooks *lit
up the crowd, especially when Brooks lamented the “loss of honesty, truth
and civility” during the Trump era, calling it a “disaster and threat to
democracy.”

‘“The entire camp erupted into applause,” says our spy.’
This anecdote is a window into what is happening within the mainstream of
the US capitalist class. They are in turmoil. Yet all too many socialists
wilfully ignore this. They think what's happening is simply a continuum of
what happened under Obama. They are greatly mistaken. They are also greatly
mistaken that we should not be paying attention.

The article contains links to the five news reports (that I know of) that
document Trump's role as a money launderer for the Russian mafia.
