Tom DeLonge's To the Stars Academy Posts Declassified UFO Videos
Blink-182 member's company employs intelligence officer once tasked with leading Pentagon's secret UFO investigation program.
Tom DeLonge's To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science posted a pair of declassified U.S. military videos Saturday purportedly showing evidence of unidentified flying objects.
The findings by the Blink-182 member's To the Stars were released at the same time that both the New York Times and Politico reported that the Pentagon had a secret $22 million program investigating "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAPs).
Military intelligence officer Luis Elizondo oversaw the program – dubbed the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – until it was reportedly shuttered in 2012; Elizondo remained at the Pentagon until October, when he left to become Director of Global Security & Special Programs for To the Stars Academy. DeLonge is the Academy's President and CEO.
Tom DeLonge's To the Stars Academy posted a pair of declassified U.S. military videos purportedly showing evidence of unidentified flying objects.
Speaking to the New York Times, Elizondo revealed that he resigned from the Pentagon due to the secrecy and "internal opposition" against the program, as well as budgetary cuts. "Why aren't we spending more time and effort on this issue?" Elizondo wrote of UAPs in his resignation letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.
The Pentagon confirmed to Politico that the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program did exist until 2012, when "it was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the [Department of Defense] to make a change."
Former U.S. senators Harry Reid, Daniel Inouye and Ted Stevens all helped spearhead the AATIP program in 2009 with help from aeronautics billionaire Robert Bigelow, whose company was contracted to oversee the project; witnesses told the New York Times that Bigelow's headquarters houses recovered pieces of UAP crafts.
While neither video offers conclusive evidence of the existence of UFOs, both videos – shot in 2004 by U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet aircrafts – show a UAP, in this case a whitish oval-shaped object the size of a commercial plane, moving at high velocities and hovering in unexplainable ways.
In one of the videos, two pilots marvel at the object, which they initially label a "drone" before it displays velocity and rotation abilities outside of a drone's framework. "Look at that thing, dude," the pilot exclaims in cockpit audio. The New York Times also posted the Navy pilots' firsthand account of the encounter.
To the Stars Academy wrote that the footage "comes with crucial chain-of-custody (CoC) documentation because it is a product of US military sensors, which confirms it is original, unaltered, and not computer generated or artificially fabricated. While there have been leaked versions on the internet, the CoC establishes the authenticity and credibility that this version is the original footage taken from one of the most advanced sensor tracking devices in use."
Elizondo added of Saturday's disclosure, "That fact is not something any government or institution should classify in order to keep secret from the people."
DeLonge, who penned "Aliens Exist" for Blink-182 in 1999, spoke to Rolling Stoneearlier this year about his UFO obsession and what it would mean for mankind if extraterrestrials did exist. "What would happen if those intelligences were roaming around the universe and getting involved in the genetics and colonization of other types of life?" DeLonge said. "Look, we do that to animals and indigenous tribes."

Blink-182 WikiLeaks: Read Tom Delonge’s Emails To Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta
“Aliens Exist.” At least, that’s what Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge was implying to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, in two emails recently uncovered by WikiLeaks. Now, you can read the entirety of DeLonge’s emails to Podesta for yourself. Do Tom’s emails to Clinton’s campaign chair prove the government’s knowledge of UFOs? Dark and scary, ordinary / Explanation, information.
As recently reported by Rolling Stone, a new WikiLeaks email dump showed that Tom DeLonge emailed Podesta about UFOs. Podesta, currently chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, was previously chief of staff for Bill Clinton and a counselor to the president for Barack Obama. Interestingly, Podesta also has a longtime fascination with the extraterrestrial, making him an ideal investigative partner for DeLonge — emails from the same WikiLeaks dump show Podesta discussing UFO technology with a former NASA astronaut.
Tom DeLonge’s first email to the Clinton campaign chair came in October 2015. In the message, Tom writes as if the two had previously met, and the former Blink-182 guitarist intimates that a filmed interview between himself and John had already taken place. In the email, titled “Important things-,” Tom indicates that the aforementioned interview was earmarked for a “special documentary.” As published by WikiLeaks, you can read the email here.
Important things-From:firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Date: 2015-10-26 23:13 Subject: Important things-
Hi John- Tom DeLonge here, The one who interviewed you for that special documentary not to long ago. Things are moving with the project. The Novels, Films and NonFiction works are blooming and finishing. Just had a preliminary meeting with Spielberg's Chief Operating Officer at DreamWorks. More meetings are now on the books- I would like to bring two very "important" people out to meet you in DC. I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic. Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you. I just need 2 hours from you. Just looking to have a casual, and private conversation in person. --Here are some photos from the material I am using as I meet with Studio Partners.
Best, Tom DeLonge TOM DELONGE | FOUNDER TOM@TOTHESTARSINC.COM | (760) 518-7801 | TO THE STARS MEDIA SAN DIEGO | 1053 S Coast Hwy 101 Encinitas, CA 92024
DeLonge’s email goes on to state that this supposed “project” was moving along swiftly, and that DeLonge was then hoping to introduce John to “two very ‘important’ people” in Washington, D.C. Was Tom trying to set up a meeting among Podesta and other government officials concerning John’s (and these “important” officials’) knowledge of UFOs? Tom tells John that the meeting’s “sensitive topic” would relate to “Classified Science and DOD topics,” with DeLonge requesting a “casual, and private conversation in person.”
As previously reported here at the Inquisitr, this Blink-182 WikiLeaks story concerning DeLonge and the Clinton campaign chair was initially broken by the Wall Street Journal. In addition, the Inquisitr has previously covered Tom DeLonge’s post-Blink-182 written works, Tom’s similarities to new Blink guitarist Matt Skiba, DeLonge’s corporate connections to Pearl Jam, and his musical project besides Blink-182 (and latter-day band, Angels & Airwaves), Box Car Racer.
DeLonge’s second email to Podesta was sent this January with the subject heading of “General McCasland.” The full email, from WikiLeaks, can be read here. As mentioned in the previously linked Rolling Stone piece, while John Podesta seemingly didn’t reply to these emails (or his reply emails simply weren’t discovered by WikiLeaks), a calendar notification from the day preceding the “General McCasland” email insinuates that a person by the name of Susan McCasland Wilkerson accepted a meeting invitation from Podesta and DeLonge. Tom’s “General McCasland” email suggests the titular “General” had inside knowledge of the Roswell UFO incident.
“Trust me, the advice is already been happening on how to do all this. He just has to say that out loud, but he is very, very aware- as he was in charge of all of the stuff. When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. General McCasland was in charge of that exact laboratory up to a couple years ago.”
As indicated in the Blink-182 lyric excerpt at the top of this article, Tom DeLonge told Blink fans in 1999, via song, that there’s “something very wrong” about our current understanding of extraterrestrial life and the UFOs they may navigate. Referencing the Majestic 12 UFO conspiracy theory, hit Blink album Enema of the State‘s “Aliens Exist” heavily foreshadowed Tom’s eventual Jovian pastime and progressive involvement in UFO investigation.
Tom DeLonge: UFO Hunt Hasn't Ended My Time With Blink-182
The 40-year-old rocker took a hiatus from the pop punk group early last year (15), and was replaced by Alkaline Trio musician Matt Skiba for the recording of their forthcoming album California.
In an interview published by American website Mic last week (beg13Jun16), the rocker appeared to give a bizarre explanation for his departure, saying that he planned to devote his future to investigating UFOs after writing a book, titled Sekret Machines, about the subject.
However in a post on Facebook, the star denied his departure from the band would be permanent, writing that he was discussing a full return with the group's drummer Travis Barker.
"Quitting the band to search for UFOs? Hahhaha WTF (what the f**k) is wrong with you media," he wrote. "I'm actually talking to Travis about us right now... Never did quit, remember?"
Despite denying his time with Blink-182 was at end, he claimed he was working with government officials on UFO related projects.
"But- Am I currently working with people in the Government? YES," he added. "Including leadership from DOD (U.S. Department of Defence), (American) Intelligence (agencies) and Executive Branch (of the U.S. government)? YES."
His indication that he was in discussions with Travis about playing with Blink-182 again was in contrast to his comments in the Mic interview.
Speaking about his work research into extra-terrestrials he said, "I can't tour nine months out of the year with enough time to do the enormity of what I'm setting out to do."
