CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): The left always said defund the police. No, we need to defund the police state – defund the administrative state.


But I'm just going to level with you guys. The likelihood of the uni-party, the likelihood of the Republican Party defunding the IRS this January is very low – and then getting Joe Biden to agree to it by the way, or whomever is president in January to agree to it.

You see, Republicans were too busy passing tax cuts for Goldman Sachs and for Google than to go and fund the IRS. You might say, Charlie, that's a pretty hopeless message. No it's not.

Just be ready for the audits. It's going to be another thing you're going to have to deal with. If you run a business, you'll probably be audited. If you run a non-profit, you'll be audited. And they will have the deluge, the football stadium of IRS agents will be coming knocking to a door near you.

And I believe the raid is a microcosm, is a metaphor for the attitude that the Washington, D.C. administrative state will now have. They better be careful though. The people are not going to put up with this. Honestly, what states need to do – states should say – like, Arizona should say the IRS is not welcome in Arizona. Just an idea.
