WATCH: The truth about anti-Trump reporter Jorge Ramos and his secret conflicts of interest

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

At a news conference, Mexican journalist Jorge Ramos confronted Donald Trump, heckling the candidate and eventually being expelled from the room.

Trump's handling of the situation was gorgeous -- and the liberal media's reaction to this squabble has been hilarious.

They're treating Ramos like a highly respected, objective member of their profession, but in fact, he's an advocacy journalist -- whose daughter works for Hillary Clinton.

That and another conflict of interest I'll tell you about should have precluded him from ever reporting on Trump's campaign, let alone trying to hijack a press conference.

There's more, like a revealing comment on Ramos' own website where he boasts about having dual loyalties.

Meanwhile, once again, this incident doesn't seem to hurt Trump's popularity with millions of average Americans.

Ramos? You sure that isn’t Terry Melewski? Same brand of condescending whining.
commented 2015-08-30 20:41:06 -0400
Without a doubt Ramos had clearly inappropriate conflicts of interest. However, I would not be happy with Donald Trump as president. He is like a bull in a china shop. It is scary to think of him negotiating with other heads of state. He just keeps shooting off his mouth and not caring. He is an accomplished businessman but not a wise person.

another activist joke…

Yes, I enjoy ALL of Ezra’s posts and videos. Ezra many of us are in your corner. Thank you for the honest and compelling stories you address.

Trump is the best choice the Americans have for a new President. Let’s hope they don’t blow it.

Ramos and Mulcair are a couple of left wing socialist elites cut from the same cloth. They both think that holding dual citizenships is as close as they can hope get for now to being citizens in a one-world government run by the likes of them. What’s next, Tom?…. singing the Internationale in the House of Commons or a “Free Quebec”? I hope S.Harper knocks Mulcair down a peg or two on the issue of dual citizenship like D. Trump has done with Ramos.

I am not a fan of Trump but I do believe in what he said to make ‘America great again’.

Sharon. Good point, in fact, since Trump knew who he was, he should’ve taken him to task about his work, as I’m sure in the US, like Canada, Ramos is engaged in “counseling to commit a crime” and should be arrested. Trump should’ve barraged him with questions!! Picture this;
Trump; Oh I know you, you’re the one advocating to break our immigration laws. That’s counseling to commit a crime – explain to me why that officer over there shouldn’t arrest you on the spot? Since you came here to get away from a lawless country, explain to me how ignoring our laws would improve things? If you want to live in a lawless country, why don’t you move home?
(you get the idea. Now, wouldn’t that have been even better? And avoid playing into his hands as I noted below?)
commented 2015-08-28 14:18:44 -0400
Ramos claims he should have “a right” to barrage Trump with “questions”, really a diuretic monologue, because he is a journalist. He is not a journalist; he is an pro-illegal-immigrant advocate for the far left. Not sure why Trump bothered with him at all, other than that it made him look very understanding and indulgent of the ass. On second thought ~ I suppose he is no different than most other journalists these days: partisan, ideological, liberal cheerleaders ~ much like Canada’s Supreme Court!

Canada needs a Donald Trump…oh, that’s right…we have Don Cherry! Grapes; looking for a job? Canada needs you!

A number of years ago I read Trump’s book The Art Of The Deal and I was impressed especially when he spoke of dealing with government bureaucracy and waste and inefficiency when it came to making an outdoor ice rink in New York City which after considerable sums of money and time was no where near being functional. From time to time he says things I wish he didn’t as well but then so do all politicians, some more so than others and some are simply the target of the main stream media which is why they either have to walk a oral tight rope (frightening image) or take a devil may care attitude. My belief is it is the main stream media’s persistent attacks on Trump that are helping to herald him to the front of the pack in the same way it does for Harper. After a while the people begin to see that such lop sided reporting betrays the very fairness these same reporters like to present themselves as champions of.

Lefty Head Games! I like Trump too, but Ramos won! HUH? Say wha’? Yeah, Ramos achieved what he wanted to – hence the smug smirk on his face afterwords. You think he didn’t know he was to wait his turn? Of course he did!!!! So why did he do it? Cause he wanted Trump to do exactly what he did, so he could then “play the victim”. To “draw Trump out” as a racist pig. You see, Cons don’t think the same as Lefty’s, so they never realize what they’re up to. Don’t believe me? Take a look at this article and how it’s now being played out in the media and the Latin community; Oh yes, Martin’s views are twisted, but Ramos knows how Lefty’s think, and being “wrong”, is irrelevant to them.
This is no different than Palestinians launching a war against Israel. You think they had no idea Israel could squash them like bugs? That they’d lose? Of course they knew!! Would we launch a war against the US and think we could win? Of course not! They did it to win the war of minds, as they knew the stupid Western mainstream media would see them as victims. It was a trick. They don’t care they had to sacrifice some of their own citizens, including children.

One of your best commentaries to date, Ezra.

“…a disrespect for that class of elites that the rest of us wish that we could disrespect…” I think that that is Trump’s biggest strength. He has tried, failed, tried again, and succeeded. A number of times. He doesn’t need the political gig, and behaves like he knows this. He’s used to running things as an executive – very different from other politicians who have never worked in a competitive environment let alone tried to manage a business. Romney was also an executive, but was too self-effacing and nice to get his message out. Trump is more likely to channel the same fire as Reagan, for example the quip “It’s a recession when your neighbour loses his job, it’s a depression when you lose your job, and it’s a recovery when Jimmy Carter loses his.”
Do I agree with Trump’s social views? No. Do I think he’d be an effective president who would strengthen the US (and Canada, because the US is our single largest trading partner)? Yes. There is enough of Trump’s personality out in public to know that China and Russia would adopt a very different stance in dealing with the US with Trump in charge. And that’s a good thing.

Keith, he could become the Republican party’s Trump card if they nominate him!

America and the rest of the western world needs someone like Trump. Let us hope that he is in time to stop the start of WW3, being engineered by Whackobama and the Clinton thing. Cannot wait to see the Democrats get Trumped. (Sorry)

I, too, like your analysis of Trump Ezra and the background of Ramos.
I’m still trying to stay away from calling him a spectacle. He is most certainly talking about the right issues in the right way. And people, like me, do like it.. His methodology is certainly wanting. But, I’m waiting to see if Reality kicks in. His magic wand does not work well in Reality.

When Trump win’s the Presidency, I truly hope he dispatches the Marines into Canada
to “cleanse” us of all the “loony lefties”…
Gone-tario & All but dead Alberta come to mind.

Just saying…

I like Trump. But the 2016 election is a very important one. We can’t afford to get it wrong.

I realize Fiorina says she knows all the Arab leaders and plans to ask them what they need to defeat ISIS. But that is not the only issue, not the only challenge. Defeating ISIS will require more than just arms to Jordan and shared intelligence with Egypt. And American-led boots on the ground, which is what is needed to defeat ISIS, will likely trigger war with Iran. Can Fiorina handle that?

As for the illegals issue, Trump surely is right on with his idea to build a fence because if he puts boots on the ground to defeat ISIS, ISIS could well fund Mexican and South American illegals to enter the IS, take out their power grid, and wage holy terrorist war inside the USA all the way up to Canada.

Without a wall, it is easy for enough illegals to cross the border, get control of some small border towns, behead the local law enforcers, video tape it, use it to generate more funding and recruit more fighters to illegally enter via Mexico and escalate the terrorism.

We need a wartime president. Carly Fiorina is a great Republican with great contacts but can she hold the course when things get hot and Americans want her brought down? Can she defeat Iran?

I still like the Trump odds. He may not be peacetime presidential material. But this is wartime.

Luv your analysis Ezra. Stuff like Ramos background that so few know about. Yup, Trump is a guy who is going where not man has gone before, (to borrow from the original Star trek :).
commented 2015-08-27 19:54:52 -0400
Personally, I think that it is Mr. Trump’s fearless comments that are attractive to the public. A lot of people are very tired and fed up with this “politically correct” culture that has permeated our society and when Mr. Trump pushes back, completely unscripted, people are attracted to that freedom of speech.
I do not know whether or not he will be elected, but I also think that part of the surprise on the MSM media’s part, is that they really do not know what to do with Mr. Trump. They cannot push him around, they cannot dig around and find some story about him that we all have not heard. So I believe that they are quite shocked to find themselves in the position of truly not knowing what to do with Mr. Trump. He honestly does not care what he says or what they think.
commented 2015-08-27 19:46:17 -0400
I totally agree with your comment about liking Carly Fiorina more and more, but still enjoying the Trump spectacle. He’s certainly ticking off the elites and the entitled.

Jorge Ramos, scheduled for deportation, number one in the list…
commented 2015-08-27 19:00:05 -0400
Trump speaks his mind and walks where others fear to tread. This is why the left hate him so much. And probably why he is resonating with the common folk. Is he suitable for the White House? Who knows. The current incumbent certainly is not. For America and the free world to extricate from the cesspool we seem to be in, will require some kick ass attitude and chutzpah to accomplish. Every institution will need critical examination and every rock upturned! Is “the Donald” the right man? Can’t say. Are American voters gutsy enough to turn away from the Socialist path they are currently headed down at present? Only they can make that determination, and filter out the drivel from their version of Socialist Media!
commented 2015-08-27 18:47:28 -0400
I find that Mr. Trump reminds me of Mr. Reagan in 1980, with the exception that Mr. Reagan was a gentleman. But both campaigns’ theme: getting things fixed and regaining respect for the States. I remember one Republican supporter’s sign on C.B.C. in 1980, of course denigrated by C.B.C., responding to Mr. Reagan being a B-actor: “Why not an actor? We’ve had a clown for the past four years.” Mr. Reagan wasn’t supposed to win in 1980…Mr. Trump is not supposed to win in 2016, and he has the advantage of an 8 year clown.

Mexican journalist Jorge Ramos – there is no such thing as a Mexican – the Spanish slaughtered them all hundreds of years ago.

You, Jorge Ramos, are Spanish – likely from some part of Spain, or Portugal, perhaps Morocco.
