Colorado is suffering under socialism. This once proudly Republican Western state is getting bluer and bluer.

Not only does the state have a far-left governor in Jared Polis, but bona fide Marxists and communists are winning public office in the Denver area and competing statewide.

Denver has a small Communist Party USA club and some Maoist presence in the form of Liberation Road and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and even a small section of the pro-North Korea Party for Socialism and Liberation. But the real mover and shaker on the Mile-High left is the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Despite its “moderate”-sounding name, the DSA is a bona fide communist organization that advocates for the abolition of all prisons, borders, and, through its Green New Deal, all significant private business and the U.S. military.

Colorado has had a tiny DSA presence in Boulder and Denver since the 1980s, but since the “Bernie revolution” in 2016 and the election of President Donald Trump, the small “c” communists have massively increased their number, activity, and influence.

Today, the DSA has a major local in Denver (about 300 members), a smaller branch in Boulder, plus active units in Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and La Plata County (Durango).

Former U.S. President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama have teamed up with a lifelong Marxist propagandist to distribute a major new documentary for Netflix.

“American Factory” tells the story of a “worker revolt” against Chinese company Fuyao Glass America’s factory in the Dayton, Ohio, suburb of Moraine.

The film premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and has earned very good reviews, with review website Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 96 percent “fresh” certification.

According to the Los Angeles Review of Books:

“The tale is rife with paradoxes: the communists are the capitalists; and the workers from the land of Reagan and Trump channel socialist solidarity as they move to form a union against the wishes of the folks from the People’s Republic.”

Read the Commerce Clause in the Light Cast by the Other Parts of Our Constitution

By Publius Huldah

The parts of our federal Constitution are so interrelated that it is impossible to understand a single clause therein without considering all of the other provisions of our Constitution.

Article I, §8, clause 3, US Constitution, states:

“The Congress shall have Power … To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;”

The original intent of the power to regulate commerce “among the several States” is proved here:  Does the “interstate commerce” clause authorize Congress to force us to buy health insurance?  That paper proves that the primary purpose of the power is to prohibit the States from imposing tolls and tariffs on articles of import and export – goods & commodities – merchandise – as they are transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling.

But recently, some have asserted that since “foreign Nations”, “the several States”, and “the Indian Tribes” are grouped together in the same clause, it necessarily follows that Congress’ power to “regulate commerce” with each of them is identical.  And since Congress has broad powers over foreign commerce, they conclude that Congress has those same broad powers over interstate commerce, and may lawfully, for example, ban the movement of physical goods [such as firearms] across state lines.

So let’s look at that clause in the Light cast by the rest of the Constitution.
