    "Capitol Punishment" director Chris Burgard described the chilling visit he got from the FBI after making his movie about January 6 and said "if this can happen to me, it can happen to anybody."

    Burgard has been making films for decades, and he told The Daily Wire on Friday that not once with any of those movies, about everything from the Vietnam War to an exposé on our southern border, has he had a visit from the FBI. In his movie, he challenges the media's "insurrection" narrative and gives protestors, who say they never entered the building, the chance to speak, after being vilified and more, as previously reported.

    The director, who lives on a large ranch with a quarter-mile driveway in Texas with his family, said it was his wife Lisa who discovered the FBI agent's card on the door of her home.

    "There was no note attached, so I wasn't sure, like, was it for Chris, was it for me, was it for the whole family?" Lisa shared with PJ Media. "Were we supposed to call them back? I really didn't know what to make of it, but it was a warning. I mean, I've never had anything like that happen before."

    She called Chris and he said he got an attorney. When they reached out to the FBI agent, Burgard said he told him "that they had a call in to the terrorist threat center that I was a terrorist because I had made the movie 'Capitol Punishment' and they had orders from DC I needed to be investigated," the outlet noted.

    "We had to have a family meeting afterwards because, you know, from doing the movie, my daughter knows those other girls that had their house raided, and pulled out into the street," Burgard said. "One of them was handcuffed. They were flash-banged. And my daughter's like, 'Dad, you think they'll raid us tomorrow? Should I keep the dogs in my room? Cause I don't want them to shoot my dogs.' I can't tell you the stress this caused my family."

    "To call me and my family a terrorist threat ..." he told The Daily Wire, mentioning what his daughter said to him, "it's not stuff that you should have to live with."

    When asked why he thought this happened, he said, "If this can happen to me, it can happen to anybody."

    "But in the United States of America they [someone] can say 'oh, he's a terrorist' cause I made a movie?" Burgard added.

    He wanted to press the fact that there are "good FBI agents," and said the "agents were very professional." The agent told them they needed answers to three questions, which he was able to submit in writing, the outlet noted. Those turned into nine sub-questions. He said as of now, he hasn't heard another word from them, but has no idea if there's still an investigation.

    Producer and actor Nick Searcy talked to The Daily Wire about his tweet regarding Burgard's FBI visit and said Chris is right when he said if "it can happen to" him, "it can happen to anybody."

    "Well, Americans that disagree with the Biden administration are being silenced through the FBI and law enforcement and now they are going through Chris because he made a movie," Searcy told The Daily Wire. "This is not something that should be happening in the U.S. where we are supposed to have free speech."

    "No one is safe from this," he added. "There's no legal reason that someone can say that guy's a terrorist and then the FBI goes to investigate. ... You have to have a crime first."

    Searcy then asked what could be in the film that would cause them to go visit Burgard. He also encouraged people to go watch the film that can be seen by going to His Glory TV.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

We should always remember that this could be your fate as well: To know what is real, and to be disabused of such by a formerly mostly just institution.
