Caldwell: Trump’s Charlottesville comments are his Achilles’ heel and won’t go away

“The president speaks for himself,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on “Fox News Sunday.” He was addressing President Trump’s blaming of “both sides” in the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Va. Tillerson declined to say whether Trump’s response represented “American values.” The frustration over President Trump’s attitude toward race relations has boiled over to […]

I’m from Chicago. Our leaders need to work with Trump [VIDEO]

It pains me to write this. As a person born and raised in Chicago, I know the devastation that is plastered all over cable news isn’t something that just happened. It has been this way for decades and has become progressively worse. Let me take you on a journey through my lens. I am an […]

The Left’s visceral hate of Trump is causing racism and radicalism to flourish

Last Tuesday, people all over the world were saddened, horrified, and disturbed by what they read and saw on their TV screens. This is a story that personally troubled me and left me seeking answers as to why this happened. In my very own hometown of Chicago, four African American youth did the unthinkable. They […]

Trump’s aftermath: The Democrat brand is now “dog food”

I recall being new to the GOP in 2008 when former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.) called the GOP brand “dog food” after Obama won the presidency and Republicans lost the House and Senate. As someone who recently joined the party at that time, I was disappointed with the characterization, but found it to be true. […]

Finished: The saga that could finally end Hillary’s 30-year reign

Hillary Clinton has finally done it. She’s broken through that hard glass ceiling and become the first candidate of a major party to be criminally investigated by the FBI, not once, but twice. What’s even crazier is who would have thought, a Weiner would be the cause of her campaign collapse. FBI Director James Comey dropped a […]

Black lives don’t matter to Hillary Clinton – Black votes matter to Hillary Clinton

Last week while on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on Fox News channel I said something I believe to my core: Black lives don’t matter to Hillary Clinton; black votes matter to Hillary Clinton. As a young, black, educated millennial from the South Side of Chicago, I grew up seeing politicians come into my community every […]

Trump divorces the GOP and forms the ‘Party of Trump’

In the last days of this election Trump has done it again. A hat trick none of us expected. He has divorced the Republican Party and formed the “Party of Trump” — a party I will not be joining. The Trump phenomenon is something that will be discussed for the next 50 years. Some have […]

Trump did the impossible: He won the second debate (and everyone knows it)

Last Friday, I wrote a piece for Red Alert Politics titled, “Liar”: Millennials reject Clinton, but will they show up to the polls?” Hours after the story was published, something happened that completely changed the political landscape of this election. Footage was published of Donald Trump from 2005 saying some offensive things about a woman, which […]

“Liar”: Millennials reject Clinton, but will they show up to the polls?

In 2008, millennials voted in full force. In 2012, they handed President Obama a decisive victory again. Obama easily won the youth vote nationally at 67 percent, or 23 million votes, and young voters made the difference in Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio, according to an analysis by the Center for Research and Information on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts […]

Can Mike Pence be the Joe Biden of the 2012 VP debate?

In the 2012 vice presidential debate, the weight of the entire Obama reelection campaign was on one man: Joe Biden. The Obama campaign desperately needed a win after Obama’s performance against Mitt Romney, which pundits, analysts, and voters agreed was the worst they’d seen from the president. Or as Politico put it, “Obama snoozes and loses.” In fact, […]

Trump lost with the political class — but won with voters

One topic that many pundits, strategists, and media outlets agree upon is that this is an unconventional election cycle. The “Trump Effect” hasn’t been easy to evaluate using the conventional standards and wisdom we’ve come to rely on in traditional presidential races. Last night, Donald Trump lost the debate among the typical political class, however, he won with the […]
