Federal Investigation Underway for Chipotle Sabotage

Chipotle #2

On Monday, February 8, 2016, Chipotle’s two thousand restaurants closed their doors for the day to customers, in order to hold special employee meetings regarding last year’s outbreak of E. coli, a bacteria often associated with food poisoning.

You may remember that last year Chipotle was the first restaurant chain to announce that it would phase out the use of genetically modified foods, also known as “G.M.O.’s”. Shortly thereafter, and quite mysteriously, an E. coli outbreak was reported, across fourteen states, from Washington to Pennsylvania, and only in Chipotle restaurants. According the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (C.D.C.), the odds of an E. coli outbreak crossing a single state line is only three percent, as restaurants generally buy their produce and meat regionally for freshness. The likelihood of an E. coli outbreak crossing fourteen state lines, coast to coast, is probably a small fraction of one percent. Additionally, as many restaurant chains use produce and meat from the same sources, it is probably a fraction of a fraction of one percent that such a nationwide E. coli outbreak would only affect one restaurant and not any others.

After six months of thorough investigation by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.), the C.D.C., fourteen state and local Health Departments, as well as scientists hired by Chipotle themselves, all have independently concluded that there is not a single traceable source of E. coli from any Chipotle restaurant, in any food ingredient, preparatory surface, or piece of equipment. Literally thousands of individual tests were conducted on the all the foods, on all the kitchen surfaces, and on all the appliances at the suspect Chipotles, and no trace whatsoever of E. coli was found in any restaurant or food ingredient. The C.D.C. being unable to trace the source of a restaurant’s food poisoning, after thousands of tests and half a year of effort, has never happened before in the entire history of the organization.

As employees of Chipotle enjoy free meals after a shift, it is also noteworthy to report that not a single employee suffered an illness, although customers did. Furthermore, with the advent of precise D.N.A. testing, there were two, specifically different, strains of E. coli discovered, when there should have been just one, though they both “coincidentally” appeared simultaneously in different locations, one type for eleven of the states, and another type for the other three states, the latter being a very rare strain of E. coli, normally found only in food research labs. There was also an additional “coincidence”, in that the C.D.C., known through their own interdepartmental memos and former employees as a submissive servant and propaganda arm of the G.M.O. food industry, “just happened” to have federal officers on a “random” visit to the very local Seattle Health Department lab, at the very time, where and when the Chipotle E. coli bacteria was first analyzed, so as to immediately report the incident nationally, even though this was quite the opposite of standard operating procedure, which was suddenly changed in Chipotle’s case, as normally the release of information about an outbreak is withheld until an in-depth investigation.

What does all this mean?

G.M.O.’s are estimated to be a twenty billion dollar a year industry. As G.M.O.’s are banned in much of both Eastern and Western Europe, in advanced countries like Germany, France, and Russia, one has to ask, “What do their scientists and doctors know that we don’t?”, or perhaps even better, “Why does Russia, Germany, and France care more for the health of their citizens than the United States Federal Government?”, as obviously the bans only exist because of ill health effects from eating such genetically altered “Frankenfoods”, as they have been nicknamed.

Taking the D.N.A. from a pig and an eel, two foods which religious theologians call “unclean” because pigs eat manure (a source of E. coli) and eels eat month old corpses (a source of E. Coli), and then putting these animal’s contaminated D.N.A. into “clean” meat such as salmon and otherwise healthy fruits and vegetables to allegedly “improve” them beyond eons of nature, has to be considered very odd at the least by any person searching for the truth about which foods are, and which foods are not, the healthiest to eat. As with cigarettes in the past, there were money hungry “doctors” and “scientists” who were willing to take large sums of cash from the tobacco industry to say that cigarettes were not only “perfectly safe”, that they actually “improved your respiratory health”! The same is true today of G.M.O. foods in America, which are strictly banned in other countries for their ill health effects.

Chipotle is one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the world, making their stock investor’s very wealthy, all the while pursuing a uniquely ethical, and therefore rare, approach to the “fast food” industry. In this way, Chipotle is not just a newcomer, they are a rare corporate outsider as well. If tens of thousands of other chain restaurants were to follow their profitable lead, then the G.M.O. industry could lose TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS. Do not think for a second that this does not threaten and frighten the G.M.O. industry. If I had twenty billion dollars of sales coming in, and some new guy on the block was threatening to take my twenty billion dollars away from me, I would take action. If I were soulless, as we know some people and corporations are, then I would take unethical action, including infecting my competitor’s businesses with E. coli, in order to discredit them and bring them to financial ruin. In fact, it has already worked. Since the reported outbreak, Chipotle’s stock and sales have dropped forty percent. This is a potential loss of three hundred million dollars.

I have been a filmmaker and writer for most of my life, and half of my clients are corporations, some of which are multi-million dollar restaurant chains. In this capacity, I once worked on a project putting together a video of a focus group of customers of one such restaurant chain. This company spent an estimated fifty thousand dollars hiring an ad agency and me to put together a thirty minute film regarding their customer’s thoughts of their business. One week after the completion of the project, I received a telephone call from another client, also a restaurant chain, who was a competitor of the first, and was asked if I could duplicate an interdepartmental video. “Sure”, I said. “No problem”. When I watched the film to confirm it was being copied properly, I saw the very same video that their competitor had paid fifty thousand dollars for only a week earlier. I wondered to myself, “How on earth did they get a copy of this?”, and, “I wonder how much they paid for it?”

Unscrupulous people see business as literal war. To them, a few casualties, sick or dead, is normal operating procedure. Corporate espionage is nothing new. Nabisco, a multi-billion dollar bakery, used to have flyovers of aerial photography of their factories by competitors to tabulate trucking supplies for future projected revenue. General Motors president, James Roche, testified before congress that he had hired professional spies to follow, and try to discredit through illegal and disreputable means, Ralf Nader, who merely wrote a book criticizing the automobile industry, for fear Nader’s truthful revelations about inept car safety would lead to a loss in sales revenue of two million dollars. Imagine what they would be willing to do for twenty billion dollars!

Corporate espionage is real. I know this firsthand. In this, we have to remember, that espionage has two distinctive purposes, just as it did during World War Two, with the French Resistance for example. Purpose one, to collect information. Purpose two, to sabotage your opponent. We have to keep in mind that there are professional hitmen out there today, in every state, that will kill a total stranger for ten thousand dollars. This means for twenty billion dollars, you could kill two million people if you so desired, so what is it to make a few dozen people sick to their stomach for three hundred million dollars? . . . the profits of which you could make from selling your Chipotle stock right before the E. coli outbreak which you caused!

Recently a “theory” has surfaced, from “unknown sources”, to deflect the real cause of the Chipotle outbreak, that Australian beef was the culprit. Surely, in the thousands of individual tests the F.D.A., the C.D.C., and fourteen Health Departments did over the last six months of Chipotle’s food, this included the beef, one of their main ingredients. Give me a break. Again, corporate disinformation is the culprit, through the newspapers which they also own, in the form of “sources” which are as traceable as Chipotle’s E. coli.

The fact is, in an effort to improve the health of their customers and the quality of their food, Chipotle uses only grass-fed beef, the cows of which are allowed to freely roam in open pastureland, unlike practically every other restaurant chain in the country, which uses genetically modified corn-fed beef, of cattle held in unsanitary overcrowded cages, where E. coli is very prevalent. Because this less than ideal methodology is used in the vast majority of the United States industrialized beef production, Chipotle has chosen to import, at considerable greater expense, Australian beef, which meets their stricter quality and health requirements of grass-fed and free-range cattle, the supply of which doesn’t even exist in the U.S. to meet their customer’s demand for higher quality and healthier beef. The U.S. G.M.O. corn-fed beef farms are corporate cousins of the G.M.O. industry, which also often put profits before public health, and would also greatly benefit if their higher quality Australian beef competitor were put out of business by similar discrediting.

Not only did Chipotle’s stock drop forty percent after the E. coli outbreak, they have had to suffer the unfair implication that G.M.O. food is somehow safer, when the exact opposite is true, hence the ban of such in more enlightened countries. Television’s “Dr. Oz”, for example, simply said, albeit on nationwide television, that G.M.O. foods should be labeled as such. Immediately thereafter, he was targeted with a character defamation campaign, later proven to be conducted by former felons working for the G.M.O. industry.

Can you see how serious a matter twenty billion dollars is to unscrupulous people? Thusly, you can now comprehend how synchronized visits of corporate spies of the G.M.O. industry, to various Chipotle locations to taint the food in the dining rooms with E. coli bacteria, is not only plausible, it is very likely. This is precisely why there were no sick employees, no E. coli anywhere to be found in any kitchen, two different types of E. coli simultaneously appearing in different states, and one of which being a very rare strain often used in G.M.O. laboratories. On top of it all, perfectly synchronized as well, were assigned federal agents of the G.M.O. friendly C.D.C. “coincidentally” in the very local Health Department lab, at just the right time, to analyze and nationally publicize the first Chipotle E. coli sample, successfully defaming on the international stage the first and only anti-G.M.O. restaurant chain in the world, with its two thousand stores, and growing threat to the G.M.O. industry.

According to Reuters news service, an unidentified senior Chipotle executive disclosed that a federal criminal probe is now underway to investigate the sabotage of Chipotle’s reputation and stock deflation through the deliberate planting of laboratory bred E. coli bacteria onto their customer’s food.

    Lol they will say anything to distract from the fact that they chose to spend more time bashing GMOs than properly prepping their food. In case anyone wants to believe they are the target of some sort of conspiracy, allow me to point out the obvious. Organic produce has been around for decades, and Chipotle is hardly the first, or the largest business to switch to non-gmo products for marketing. Why would anyone go to the trouble of framing them, but not Whole Foods, Aldi, Kelloggs, and all the other businesses surrounding organic food?

  • nico101

    This article contradicts its own own sources. A) There are single original ingredients, and B) The first outbreak did not have the same DNA signature.

    • Bart Sibrel

      The fact that two different DNA signatures of E. coli appeared at the very same time in two different Chipotle restaurants is about a one in a million chance without being deliberate. The CDC admits this has never happened before in their entire 70 year history, neither has having a case unsolvable after six months of conducting thousands of tests.

      • nico101

        From your Food Poison Journal source.. “WGS was also performed on STEC isolates from four people in the second
        outbreak. All were highly related to one another, although not to the
        isolates from the first outbreak.” So…two isolates, not at the same time. Also, using Natural News as a source doesn’t bode well for credibility.

        • Bart Sibrel

          This means that if Chipotle had a normal E.coli outbreak, it would all be from the same source, not two, and certainly not one that can be traced to a laboratory.

          To put down Natural News, which presents evidence that natural remedies are more effective than man-made radioactive chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer, means that you trust man’s achievements over the last 50 years as more superior than God’s or “natures” eons of wisdom.

          No wonder you think taking DNA from an unclean eel and putting it into a healthy salmon improves it.

          • nico101

            There’s exactly zero evidence of corporate sabotage other than Natural News’ idea of source referencing itself. See; “reach-around” E coli 026 was not traced to a lab. It can be found in tainted dairy, for one.

            Please show me a single shred of peer reviewed evidence that natural remedies are superior to chemo.

          • Bart Sibrel

            There is also not one American textbook that says that the moon landings were fake, even though they were. The majority has always been wrong throughout history, only to be proven so centuries later.

            At one time there were many “Respected Peer Reviewed Papers” which said that bleeding a virus out of a person would heal them, when, in fact, it made them worse. The same will be proven of chemo therapy.

            There are hundreds of first hand testimonials from people who did not use chemo therapy and ate only a raw vegetable diet instead for six months and were cured of cancer.

            My friend, it only hurts your cause to say that others who hold different points of view than you are “irrational”, which is calling people who see things differently than you stupid. Doing so only digs your grave deeper by your own hand, showcasing the very arrogance which has blinded you from perceiving the truth.

            To take the federal government or corporations at face value in a perfect world without corruption and murder, would be a noble pursuit indeed. Yet to do so, as you have done, in such a depraved society such as ours, with its track record of lies after lies, crimes after crimes, and genocide after genocide, is overly optimistic.

            I am a very optimistic person, yet we have to accept the facts, even if they are deplorable, rather than defending criminals because we wish we lived in a better world than we actually do.

            Be Blessed!

      • Mark E. Reynolds

        It took me a minute, but now I remember you. You’re the dork that got his ass kicked by a 72 year old Buzz Aldrin. The fact that you’ve had more than fifteen minutes of fame is a sad statement on the state of science denial in this country.

        • Bart Sibrel

          Science, which you claim you follow, has to do with Laws. The Law of science says that a claim of a first time scientific achievement, such as landing on the moon or accomplishing cold fusion, has to be INDEPENDENTLY verified by an IMPARTIAL party and DUPLICATED. Only NASA claims to have landed on the moon, and only they offer the evidence of such. This is like letting a criminal in a court proceeding being the only one alowed to offer the evidence. This is not scientific at all. Neither is claiming that something done with 1960’s technology cannot be repeated today with 50 years more advanced technology by any nation on earth, including the one that allegedly did it 50 years ago.

          You represent the sad state of Truth denial in our country. Additionally, as science is all about Laws, why do you cheer a person who breaks the Law by committing felony assault upon another, simply for expressing their constitutional right of freedom of speech? Is it lawful to punch another person simply because they say something you disagree with? Apparently you think so, which means you really do not believe in Laws, constitutional or scientific. If I punched him, I would be in jail. He was not prosecuted because he once flew on a rocket. How is this an equal application of the Law? So everyone can see that you do not equally apply the Laws of the constitution or science in an impartial and objective way. You run on your emotions, not science at all.

          To call someone a name like a child does, such as “dork”, simply because they hold a different opinion than you, proves this lack of clarity in your mind. In such a condition, how could you possibly perceive the difference between propaganda and science when you are so overwhelmingly controlled by your emotions rather than scientific and Lawful facts?

            Obviously they had to launch a rocket as part of the deception. Duh! They just never left earth orbit, otherwise they would be leaving earth orbit today if they could do it on the first attempt 50 years ago.

            Can’t you share your thoughts without calling the other person a name like a child? How can the words of such a person be trusted or respected?

          • Mark E. Reynolds

            Whoa, don’t get mad. I don’t want you coming to my house to jump on the hood of my car like your arrest shows you have a propensity to do. Also, if you were in the right, why did you write him a letter of apology?

          • Bart Sibrel

            My friend, be careful not to make the centuries old mistake of criticizing the messenger because you do not like the message which destroys your paradigm.

            When an astronaut punches a person and is not prosecuted by the DA because he is a “national hero”, and the journalist who criticized him is arrested for punching a car, there is something very wrong with our government. In such a backwards government, moon landings are faked and larger businesses sabotage their smaller competitors with the help of such governments. Remember, Hitler was a “national hero” to most of his countrymen, even though only a few knew the truth that he was a scoundrel.

            To praise the punch of a man to a man ,and to criticize the punch of a man to a car ,shows that you do not see things in balance. As such, you cannot perceive the truth about the moon landings or the ruthlessness of the GMO industry.

            Aldrin admitted twice in “Astronauts Gone Wild” that I am right that the moon landings were false by saying, “I was only a passenger. Talk to the administrator of NASA about this”, even though the record shows that he was the Pilot and not “just a passenger”, as he would have just been if he never left earth orbit, as was the case. The second time he admitted the truth was when he angrily said to me, “And this makes you a real famous person for having discovering all this!”, when he thought the story had just broken worldwide.

            If I walked on the moon, I would find it extremely funny that someone did not believe me. Someone saying I did not walk on the moon, if I did, would be like throwing a feather at me. Why on earth would I get angry and punch someone for throwing a feather at me? If, on the other hand, I was exposing his corruption, which was hidden all this time and which had made him a millionaire, he would indeed be angry, as he was.

            I apologized to him afterwards because I was later shown in the scriptures where it says, “Do not rebuke an older man harshly, rather gently”, which I was guilty of not obeying.

            I wish you well in your pursuit of the truth. Perhaps I should apologize to you too, if I have spoken in any way to provoke you to the name calling I received from you.

            May God Bless you.

            I feel sorry for you. It must be horrible to live such a small, paranoid life. To get fired from a job, because you were harassing and trespassing on an astronaut’s property. To have to work as a cab driver, and then screw that up with multiple DUIs and the vandalism charge. It’s pretty pathetic life, but I guess that sort of mental illness explains why you feel the need to lash out at things you can’t comprehend and at achievements that you will never be able to remotely match. You should seek professional counseling support, that is if it hasn’t already been court ordered for you.

          • Bart Sibrel

            Thank you for your kind sympathy!
            Anyone who reads the above correspondence with your name calling and personal attacks, rather than discussing the facts, will be easily able to judge which of us has a sound mind.
            Take care my friend.

          • Mark E. Reynolds

            But those are the facts. Your film has been debunked, it’s been proven that you’ve doctored footage (I love the video of you trying to crawfish out of that one), and you’ve harassed individuals that deserve your respect, not your abuse. You obviously have some mental issues, and probably a drinking problem, based on your numerous DUI arrests, and the freak out over a parking spot. These things have brought you over a month of jail time served. When faced with the fact that numerous outside sources have confirmed that the Apollo missions went to the moon (telemetry) and landed (Chandrayaan-1) you have to claim collusion and bribery, even when some of the confirming sources were our sworn enemies at the time of their acknowledgement.

            And if all of that nonsense and banality weren’t enough, you’re now conflating a federal investigation pointed at Chipotle’s practices, and announced as part of their SEC filings, as a federal probe into sabotage. Chipotle themselves have clearly stated that there is no evidence of sabotage, and that their sourcing and handling practices have made them much more susceptible to these kinds of outbreaks. That is why they have had these issues (2008-2010) from long before they made their GMO stand. That is also why they are transitioning to “central kitchen” form of processing like every other major fast food operation utilizes.

            You continue to prattle on about facts, but you have a clear track record of presenting items out of context, falsifying records and fabricating lies as best fits your narrative. You’re not some enlightened free thinker, you’re an attention starved little man.

          • Bart Sibrel

            “Ye without sin, cast the first stone”.

            I guess that means you are without sin or error. Congratulations! I wish that were true of me! I openly admit at large that I used to be an alcoholic. Yet, whether I was a fireman who rescued a thousand people from burning buildings, or was killer of millions, it has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not the moon landings were faked.

            To resort to name slinging, personal insults, and attacking the messenger, only magnifies the proof of your error. You are such an angry person! Why? Are you not happy with your life? Why not? How can you be so emotional and expect to perceive the truth clearly of events that happened, or did not happen, as far away as the moon?

            To say that the irrefutable proof I discovered from NASA archives of the crew of Apollo 11 faking part of their photography was somehow manufactured by me, is only further proof that it is condemning evidence. First of all, it is an admission that the evidence clearly proves the missions were faked. Secondly, your rebuttal is far from an original counter argument, as this is exactly what OJ Simpson’s defense team was forced to say in response to overwhelming condemning evidence . . . “I know the evidence looks like it proves guilt, yet that is because the evidence was manufactured.”

            I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree.

            Be well.

          • Mark E. Reynolds

            Clavius.org doesn’t find your evidence as irrefutable as you think it is. Out of context, widely available footage that you have manipulated for your own means. This manipulation proves that you aren’t attempting to prove your theory because you truly believe in it, but that you are a mere huckster, trying to make a name and a dollar through misinformation.

            “Mr. Sibrel has no actual evidence that the Apollo spacecraft stayed in low earth orbit the whole time, nor can he explain how it was able to go for two weeks without being spotted in the night sky. It would have been the brightest object in the sky next to the moon and Venus. And it would have been moving so fast that it would have transited the night sky in about three minutes. Bright, fast-moving objects in the sky attract attention. Mr. Sibrel argue that billions of people over six missions lasting more than a week each failed to see it.

            What Mr. Sibrel supplies is footage of the astronauts practicing for an upcoming telecast. Because television was added at the last minute, they hadn’t had time to practice much with the equipment. So they were experimenting with different camera positions and exposure settings. Someone on the ground recorded it. Mr. Sibrel notes several observations which he can’t explain in terms of his expectations, therefore he concludes the astronauts “must” have been faking it. That’s it. That’s his “smoking gun.”

            And it’s not true that you can only see the footage by ordering Mr. Sibrel’s video. It is available — unedited and without Mr. Sibrel’s “interpretive” voice-over — on the Apollo 11 DVD set from Spacecraft Films. Mr. Sibrel allows you to see only bits and pieces of this evidence which he considers so important.”

            That is like saying, “I can run faster than you”, and the other person says, “Prove it”, and they say, “I could, but I don’t want to”.

            We paid about $500,000 to research, travel, and produce “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon” and only made about 100,000 in DVD sales so that we could share it for free on youtube.

            Do you ever say anything that is Truthful?

            Can’t you share your thoughts without calling the other person a name like a child? How can the words of such a person be trusted or respected?

            What you have posted is a quote from “wikipedia”, a very un-reliable source, posted there by a die-hard fan of the missions, who is in no way affiliated with NASA. They are desperately trying to defend the sinking federal government, just as you are. This is in no way an official statement from NASA, who has simply ignored my film without a formal comment, otherwise they would be admitting, as you just did, that the footage I uncovered was indeed staged. Thank you for doing so! Thank you for admitting that Apollo 11 contrived false photography!

            The Apollo missions cost about one million dollars per minute. If they were really half way to the moon, as they falsely claimed they were in the footage, instead of actually being in earth orbit for the entire mission as the footage I uncovered clearly proves, then they would just “practice” the photography WITH THE REAL EARTH OUT THE WINDOW, rather than wasting their precious time, and bringing unnecessary materials that consumed precious weight, to stage the photography with a one foot model of the earth, as you have just admitted that they did! Again, thank you for admitting that NASA staged part of the Apollo 11 photography!

            If they really went to the moon, then there would be no need to stage ANY of it. If they were falsifying the photography, as you just admitted they were, to “practice” the photography, then they would simply “practice” WITH THE REAL EARTH OUT THE WINDOW, rather than creating an elaborate fake model of such, which would consume far more of their precious time, energy, and materials. Thank you again for admitting that the Apollo 11 crew contrived fake photography of their mission which created the illusion that they were half way to the moon. I really appreciate this kind admission.

            You said, “you are a mere huckster, trying to make a name and a dollar through misinformation”, when you already know this to be a false statement. If you are in the right and hate lies, why on earth would you have to lie to make your point?

            I am the one who produced the film. I know exactly how much it cost and how much we made from DVD sales. I have already told you plainly in the above previous conversation, which anyone can read, that the film cost five times more than the money we made off of DVD sales. Yet even knowing this, you still continue to say I am in it for the money, when you ALREADY KNOW that the EXACT OPPOSITE IS TRUE. Why would you lie to make your point unless your point is invalid?

            Obviously loosing money and being the target of unfair ridicule, my motives can only be patriotic, to rebuke the government for blatantly lying to the people, even though some of the people I am trying to help mistakenly defend their criminal federal government and persecute the messenger of their crimes instead.

            If you blatantly lie to others in an attempt to make your point, when you already know that you are making deliberate false statements, then this alone proves that your point is invalid.

            It is absolutely amazing that your accusation, “you are a mere huckster, trying to make a name and a dollar through misinformation”, is EXACTLY WHY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FAKED IT, yet you accuse the messenger of the crime of this instead, even though you already know this to be a lie, as I plainly told you previously that we lost money on the film. The government lies and you defend them with lies. Sad.

            If they really went to the moon, you would not have to defend the missions with repeated lies as you have done.

            The further lies in your above desperate defense of the lying federal government is the fact that you say, through your humorously un-credible “wikipedia” source, is that the footage I uncovered is “Readily available to the public”. LOL Really? Why then is there a stark waring at the beginning of the unedited behind-the scenes-footage which reads, “NOT FOR PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION”. You clearly know this, as you have seen my film. Yet again, you deliberately lie anyway, claiming the footage was publicly available when the very footage itself says it was not, in a desperate attempt to make your point, thereby proving, yet again, that your point is invalid, as you have to make it with lies.

            “Spacecraft Films”, which is funded by NASA, only released excerpts of the condemning footage I uncovered as “damage control” AFTER my film was released, as anyone can readily see from the links below. Not only do the Apollo 11 astronauts fake part of the mission photography right in front of your eyes in this newly discovered unedited reel of their behind-the-scenes outtakes of false photography, which you already admitted they indeed did falsify, there is a third party, likely the CIA, prompting the astronauts to speak only after four seconds have elapsed, in oder to create the false effect of an increased radio delay, as if they were half way to the moon, rather than in earth orbit for the entire time, as they really were.

            NASA says, “The TV picture looks good.” Then there is exactly a four second pause. A third party then says, “Talk”. Then Neil Armstrong immediately speaks after the prompting, only after the clandestine third party has given him permission to do so. According to official NASA statements, there are only supposed to be TWO parties on the line, not THREE, the later of which is crystal clear, unlike the others, coming from some secret base where the falsehood is being coordinated.

            If this incredible footage which I uncovered proves nothing, then why was it not previously released, only done so after my film debuted, and why did “Spacecraft Films”, who finally released the footage decades later, edit out “Talk” from their DVD excerpts, which they most definitely did!

            The fact that they edited out “talk” proves the coverup, as a third party saying “talk” after a four second delay proves the trickery of fake radio delays, inacted to give the false impression that the crews were further away from the earth than they really were. If they really went to the moon, there would be no reason to edit out the condemning “talk”, which they did to conceal the truth.

            The footage I uncovered was an unedited reel of an hour of behind-the-scenes outtakes of false photography, from which only about one minute was ever shown to the public in 1969, and then only after it was highly edited. This is admitted on camera by those faking the photography because they thought their remarks of such would be edited out before public release. That is why they are heard in the footage saying that the false footage is for “playback later”, even though the words “live” appeared on people’s TV screens when such footage was later broadcast. Why would they make this blatant lie on a truthful mission? These remarks exposing their falsehood were edited out in the public version and were only released in my film, which is linked below.

            Thank you for drawing attention to these important facts and admitting that NASA falsified part of the Apollo 11 record. Again, if the REALLY went to the moon, there would be no reason to stage ANY of it.

            If a serial killer of a hundred people is caught just ONCE in a SINGLE murder, it is enough to prove their guilt of the rest. Likewise, the discovery of only ONE segment of false photography from a mission that is supposed to be “real”, proves the falsehood of the entire mission. Thank you again for admitting the footage I uncovered was fake, and thusly proving the mission was fake. You’re awesome!

            Just as OJ Simpson had die-hard defenders of his likely murderous actions, claiming that ALL of the condemning evidence was falsified, there will always be people like you, who angrily foam at the mouth with only insults to retractors as evidence to make their case, that their long worshiped “heroes” are of nobel character, when in fact, they are the worst of scoundrels. Like many before me, the Truth is held by the minority in a world full of lies.

            I am very glad to be in the minority on this matter, for the Messiah said, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you for speaking the truth.”

            The world worships lying men like you do, so it is no surprise you lie to protect your brethren, unknowingly I hope. Only the power of the living Messiah could turn an alcoholic into a sober man, as “AA”‘s success rate is only 4 percent. Only the Messiah can turn your drunken rage about this into love, and open your eyes to the truth. I already prayed that He will do so.

            Be blessed my friend!

      The company responsible for these outbreaks is Chipotle, and they are currently under federal investigation for the handling of at least one outbreak, and possibly the rest of them as the investigation continues.

          So the outbreaks they had in 2008, 2009 and 2010, before the GMO announcement, were all pre-emptive strikes by Big Ag? Try a little critical thinking sometime.

          Also please note that Chipotle themselves have stated that there is no evidence of sabotage, and that their sourcing and handling procedures made them more susceptible to food borne illnesses.

        The criminal part of the investigation is to determine if Chipotle should be held criminally negligent for their failure to alert authorities of the outbreak in a timely manner. Did you even read the article you cited?

        • Bart Sibrel

          You’re asking ME if I read it? LOL Did you?

          Your above statement is NO WHERE to be found in the ENTIRE article. The illnesses were reported faster than any other E. coli outbreak that I have ever heard of in my 50 years!

          Who do you work for to make such a lying statement against Chipotle and in favor of GMO’s?

          Chipotle has been exonerated in EVERY article and news story about this, ALL of which say that ZERO E. coli was found in ANY of their restaurants. CASE CLOSED.

          The reason there is a CRIMINAL investigation is because the E. coli was NOT ACCIDENTAL, it was DELIBERATE, hence “CRIMINAL”.

          If someone hits a pedestrian with their car ACCIDENTALLY, they are free to drive away from the scene after completing the paperwork. If they DELIBERATELY hit a person with their car, they are taken to jail because it is CRIMINAL.

          ZERO E. coli was found in ANY of their restaurants. If Chipotle were the ones being investigated, it would be the authorities making the announcement of such, not them, and it would be all over the news everywhere, which is not the case. The have been EXONERATED in EVERY news story.

          Even if E. coli was found in a food ingredient, it would be ACCIDENTAL and not CRIMINAL. It is a CRIMINAL investigation because the poisoning was DELIBERATE.

      • Pamm Larry

        Thanks…but nowhere in the link does it say that the federal investigation is about sabotage. Please be careful about making inflammatory statements with nothing based in fact. As far as I can see, at this point in time, it is about the Norovirus and how Chipotle responded, not about them being sabotaged. I am a total supporter of Chipotle and think that it’s not outside the realm of possibility that they were sabotaged. But until we have clear, verifiable evidence that they were, you do not do the Food Movement any good by publishing things that have not been proven. Best Regards- Pamm

            Bart..we are talking about two different organisms that Chipotle was having issues with.

            One is the E Coli…this is what you are referencing and talking about. They are NOT being investigated federally for that. They are being investigated federally for the NOROVIRUS which is NOT E. Coli. E Coli is a bacteria. Norovirus is a virus. E Coli happened in many states, Norovirus in Simi Valley in CA.

            http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/01/06/462147245/chipotle-faces-a-criminal-investigation-into-its-handling-of-a-norovirus-outbrea

            And there are tons more references if you google norovirus chipotle.

            It’s confusing, I know, but you are conflating/confusing the E. Coli with the Norovirus. The CDC has definitely cleared Chipotle of the E. Coli. The Norovirus investigation is via the FDA and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California.and is an ongoing investigation.

            Hope that helps.

            And, again…I fully support Chipotle. I have always and continue to know they are one of the most ethical companies on the planet. I ate there on the 9th even without the coupon for a free burrito as I want to support them as they have supported real food and taken strong stands. It’s my “go to” place when traveling. I am a food justice advocate (worked on Prop 37 in CA in 2012 and keep working for labels) and can think of no other business that I admire more for their stand on real food. There are tons of “fishy” circumstances around this whole thing..I totally agree.

            But we HAVE to be accurate in our reporting to be credible as a movement. And I am asking you to dig deeper to understand what’s going on before writing false titles that get spread around the internet. Thanks much!!

  • Food Dude

    And little green men were the ones mysteriously – and invisibly – floating through Chipotle restaurants “contaminating” people’s meals without their knowledge. Food prepared in front of them and carried to their table by themselves. Yep, tons of opportunities to unwrap that burrito in the foil, unroll it, tamper with it, roll it back up, and re-wrap the foil with no one noticing someone messing with someone else’s meal. Flaw #1.

    Flaw #2 – You assume that the $20 billion dollar market the G.M.O. market would lose would go where? Perhaps the moon. As someone who worked for a supplier to Chipotle, we didn’t send little greend men, spies, or anyone else to sabotage their desire for a pasture based product. Our desire to do business with them led us to the continue our efforts to transition our suppliers (farms) to meet their requirements. Yes, continue, because we had already started before ever talking with them. How did we accomplish this? By incentivising our suppliers with a premium paid for a product that met our, and their, requirements. No business would idly sit by and lose their piece of a $20 billion dollar market – particularly one growing as quickly as Chipotle – when they can easily change their business model slightly. You have no real idea what you are talking about.

    Now, where did it come from that could affect people in multiple states, eating different products? Let’s see, e Coli comes from fecal matter and the majority of people spend less than 7 seconds washing their hands after using the bathroom. Could it possibly be something so simple as poor personal hygiene, thus the shutdown to do food safety training.

    Time for you to go meet Art Bell and Oliver Stone behind the grassy knoll for lunch.

  • Ira Lee White

    As a former UDSA meat inspector for nearly 27 years, I would like to add my two bits. The fact that the incidents happened close to each other combined with the fact that the beef was grass fed leads me to believe that it could have happened without sabotage but not likely. I have done work in plants with grass fed beef and other naturally grown species as well as in plants with the common corn fed beef and can tell you that e coli is quite rare in the grass fed beef. That 11 of the samples came up one species of e coli and the other 2 came up a different species is not in itself cause for alarm bells. However, the exact species was not cited in this article. E coli 0157 is the dominant species but there are others as well. If it turned out the contamination was by one of the lessor known species, that would be quite special. The fact that the second species, also not named, is found only in a laboratory is quite confounding and does show a reason to think it was planted purposefully.

    I am also suspicious of the source not being found either in source food, equipment or producer practices and that the staff ate the same food without getting sick. After their investigation the teams working this case should have been able to find where the e coli was coming from.

    The charge that the CDC is pro GMO may or may not be true. I haven’t looked into this at all. I do know that the USDA is GMO friendly and the FDA is as well. I am not GMO friendly. As for it being suspicious that the CDC had people right there to investigate- that is what they do. They have teams on standby ready to fly to wherever they are needed. Rereading the part where this article talks about the CDC coming in, I noticed that this section was unclear. Was the same lab used for all the samples and the CDC was there at the lab when they came in? Was this the case in each of the instances where samples were sent to each of several labs? Our government has been bought lock stock and barrel and could easily be influenced to participate in such a

    So, the fact that Chipotle themselves are publicly saying they weren’t sabotaged doesn’t dissuade people from saying things, right?

  • David Kaplowitz

    so people across those 14 states reported getting sick from food at Chipotle? this isn’t clear in this article. if so, and this was sabotage, were these people hired by the GMO industry? I find all this intriguing and potentially very disturbing but the voices of the customers who were purportedly poisoned are conspicuously absent in this article.

  • Tim St John

    Chipotle needs to do what jack In The Box did in the 90’s following their problems with E-Coli. Chipotle already has the script, they only need to implement it.

    Fantastic truthful article. Thanks Bart for continuing to write about the things that most people don’t want to accept as truth.

    • Michelle

      One of the most interesting talking points in this article is the one “rare” form of e coli. Typically, you have to be on the “inside” to actually get a strand of that bacteria. Not just anyone has access to “strands” of bacteria.

  • Bill fogel

    The truth is out there somewhere. Who knows if it will ever be found or authenticated. Speculation is paramount to decisive beliefs. Wait and see then decide.

  • Interesting theory that I’ve speculated about myself since as you say the statistical probability of an outbreak such as this is almost zero. But the million dollar question is how would the perps get the e coli onto the food and manage to poison only customers but not employees? I work in a restaurant kitchen and I believe that’s not easy. You could adulterate the food fairly easily but everyone would end up eating it – not just customers – since we all eat from the same sources of food that customers do.

    • Michelle

      Where there’s a will, there’s a way. We all know that it’s possible to do anything if you get someone performing the job who is sticking with the agenda. It’s really not hard and I’ve worked in the restaurant business myself; even wait staff are willing to do a little something extra for a price! Everyone is for sale now-a-days.

  • Kay Larkin

    You cited some references, but none of those references speak to the detail to which you are saying. Where are you getting your information regarding the investigation? I love Chipotle, and I loathe GMO’s and avoid them like the plague, so I’d really like to believe what is being suggested here, but I refuse to make my judgements without specific sources cited. For example, this opinion piece states:
    “After six months of thorough investigation by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.), the C.D.C., fourteen state and local Health Departments, as well as scientists hired by Chipotle themselves, all have independently concluded that there is not a single traceable source of E. coli from any Chipotle restaurant, in any food ingredient, preparatory surface, or piece of equipment. Literally thousands of individual tests were conducted on the all the foods, on all the kitchen surfaces, and on all the appliances at the suspect Chipotles, and no trace whatsoever of E. coli was found in any restaurant or food ingredient. The C.D.C. being unable to trace the source of a restaurant’s food poisoning, after thousands of tests and half a year of effort, has never happened before in the entire history of the organization.”

    I clicked on every reference, and then followed their references, and didn’t see anything that said thousands of tests, or that Chipotle had hired Scientists and that such detailed investigating was done on all parts of the Store equipment and surfaces. At the very least, I think if you write that, you’re source should be cited at the end of those statements.

    ……. Can you please be more specific with where you got this information? I would love to share this with the world, but I and committed to only sharing proven factual information.

    Thank you.
