Longtime radio host Alex Jones blasted the Biden administration and the FBI over the raid at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in Florida during his Tuesday appearance on the Charlie Kirk Show.
Kirk asked Jones, "The rubicon's been crossed. They come after you with this ridiculous judgment, they expand the IRS... raid Mar-a-Lago, are these connected events? What's the lesson here?"
"One hundred percent," responded Jones. "the corrupt multinational corporations that are anti-free market monopolists, they know the world's woken up to them, they know the people are saying no, and so they're bringing in every form of authoritarianism they can. Biden said over a year ago, he's going to declare questioning elections, or questioning lockdowns, or questioning forced inoculations as terrorism. So they're just simply trying to outlaw their political opposition right now."
When asked what could be done about it, Jones responded: "We don't get violent, we don't get baited by them, we are culturally winning not even as conservatives or Christians, but as populists that just want a free nation. And so, people know Biden increased the inflation, they know Biden cut off the pipelines, they know Biden imploded the borders, they know Biden did all these things and so they're just simply trying to change the subject, but the people are with us. So, if we just get out and vote, and expose election fraud, and we just promote our ideology of common sense and of family, people resonate with that. We're going to win, that's why we saw the tyranny, because culturally and politically, the power structure knows that they're not with the people.
"So, Alex let me ask you," Kirk replied. "Do you think yesterday's raid of Mar-a-Lago was an act of desperation? It certainly feels that way. That the great reset crowd, the Davos crew, that they are freaking out that the people are starting to actually restore to some voice. Do you feel that? Do you think all of a sudden that they're acting out of a sense of paranoia and last-minute desperation?
"I mean, I totally agree, Charlie. This is one hundred percent desperation. When you've got this incredibly popular president who is set to announce he's running again, and you don't know what to do, so you raid him when the federal law says a president can get anything he wants from the national archives or his presidential library. This is all a giant red herring to try and disqualify Trump from running in 2024 and I predict it will make Trump run, and it will make Trump win. I think they jumped the shark on this," he concluded.
Fox reported that more than 30 FBI agents raided the home, and were "not being judicious" about what they took from the home. Trump was New York at the time of the raid.
It was also reported that the Department of Justice had advanced notice that the raid would be taking place. The investigation's focus was on classified material that Trump brought with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House. According to The New York Times, Trump delayed returning 15 boxes of material to the National Archives which included documents that were marked as "classified national security information."
According to Fox News, the raid occurred early Monday morning and FBI agents brought a "safe cracker" and cracked a "relatively new" safe in Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. A source told the outlet there was "nothing in it."
Trump has been under persistent investigation by the January 6 Committee, which seeks to hold him accountable for a riot that occurred on January 6, 2021. The FBI has said that there was no evidence that the events of that day had been pre-planned.
The raid has sparked heavy criticism of Biden and his administration, including from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who said that the Biden "regime" had turned the US into a "Banana Republic."
DeSantis posted on Twitter, "The raid of [Mar-a-Lago] is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic."
