Just Show Us the Aliens Already

Editorial by Bridget Read                                    July 24, 2020                                   (thecut.com)

You know what? It’s time. We’ve waited long enough. After a slow drip, drip, drip of hints and tidbits of information about the longtime, formerly top-secret government project dedicated to exploring the existence of extraterrestrial life, we deserve some confirmation. Are we alone out here or not? Don’t we have enough to be confused about???

It’s been three months since the Pentagon officially released footage of three sightings of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” previously shared with the world by true believer and former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge’s company, To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science. At the time, the government said they were releasing these grainy videos to clear up any confusion that they might be fake. They are not fake! They are real, and the government can’t explain them!

Now, retired senator Harry Reid, who seems almost ready to confirm that he believes aliens are real, told the New York Times he “believes” that “crashes of objects of unknown origin may have occurred and that retrieved materials should be studied.” Um, okay! Yes, please can they be studied? According to former members of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force — the government’s exploratory program — now that the program is no longer “in the shadows,” it might actually be making its findings public. One official from the task force apparently told a Defense Department agency in March about the existence of “retrievals” he described as being from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.” !!

Give. Us. The. Aliens. Show us the pieces of their ships! Let us see! The fact that Donald Trump knows more than I do about whether or not the existence of aliens is close to being confirmed is unconscionable. Can I please just have this one thing?

Pentagon Has ‘A Lot More’ Classified UFO Videos, Ex Head of Secret Government Program Says

Article by Aristos Georgiou                            July 10, 2020                                (newsweek.com)

• “Am I surprised that the government acknowledged the validity and the veracity of those videos? Not at all,” says Luis Elizondo (pictured above), director of government programs at ‘To The Stars Academy’, told Newsweek. “It was a matter of time. They didn’t have a choice because ultimately, the paper trail goes back to the authenticity of these videos. And anybody who does a little bit of research will recognize that they are real.” “It is truly a historical moment.”

• Last year, both the Navy and the Pentagon publicly confirmed that the three UFO videos captured by Navy pilots in 2004 and 2015 are real. “I knew they were genuine,” says Elizondo. “[A]nd there’s also a lot more (UFO video) the Pentagon currently has, unfortunately (they) remain highly classified.” And he should know. Elizondo once ran the Pentagon’s secret government UFO research project known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which helped facilitate the release of three UFO videos.

• While the veracity of the videos have been confirmed, this does mean that they show alien spacecraft. Officials simply cannot explain the phenomena in the video clips. Some experts suggest that the objects could be atmospheric effects or technical glitches in the fighter jet imaging systems. Elizondo welcomes this kind of skepticism, but says, “I would just encourage those who jump to conclusions prematurely to take in all the data that’s available, because it’s not just eyewitness testimony. It is electro-optical data from some of the most sophisticated intelligence sensors that we have on the planet. It’s also radar data all looking at the same object and coming to the same conclusion that the eyewitnesses are coming to.”

• “Let’s not forget that in today’s age of social media, anytime a (UFO) video comes out, within 24 hours someone has been able to disprove it,” notes Elizondo. “In this case, that’s never happened. They truly are anomalous.”

 

The Pentagon has “a lot more” highly classified videos of so-called unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP,) the ex-head of a secretive government program has said.

Luis Elizondo—who once led the U.S. government’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which was set up to investigate UAPs—helped facilitate the release of three videos showing unidentified aerial phenomena captured by Navy pilots in 2004 and 2015.

In April this year, the Department of Defense published the declassified videos online, which had already been circulating in the public domain following unauthorized releases in 2017 and 2018 by The New York Times and a company co-founded by Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge called To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences (TTSA) that researches unidentified aerial phenomena.

Last year, Navy and Pentagon spokespeople confirmed that the videos—which show strange objects appearing to accelerate incredibly fast, travel at spectacular speeds and perform other unusual maneuvers—are real.

“Am I surprised that the government acknowledged the validity and the veracity of those videos? Not at all,” Elizondo, currently director of government programs at TTSA, told Newsweek. “It was a matter of time, they didn’t have a choice because ultimately, the paper trail goes back to the authenticity of these videos. And anybody who does a little bit of research will recognize that they are real.”

Tom DeLonge Says the Government Has Information That Would Change the World

Article by Emily Brown                              June 29, 2020                              (unilad.co.uk)

• Tom DeLonge, 44 (pictured above), former member of the rock band Blink-182 and currently a founding member of the UFO research organization ‘To the Stars Academy’, grew up in a ‘hardcore’ Christian family. But once he was touring with his band, there was ‘nothing to do but read books’ and his eyes were opened to different belief systems. He was consumed by an obsession to find out why we’re here on this planet and what it’s all about. The subject of aliens and UFOs seemed to encompass everything he wanted to know – dealing with religious beliefs systems, the potential for life out in the universe, and different ways of thinking and understanding new technologies.

• DeLonge says there are ‘thousands and thousands of documents and pieces of evidence (about UFOs) that have come out from the [US] government’, whether they be from ‘flag level (military) officers, or CIA declassification, or people that work on programs’. He is convinced that government officials are hiding information that could change life as we know it. He and fellow ‘To The Stars’ researcher, Luis Elizondo, who headed a Pentagon UFO research program, have created the History Channel show, “Unidentified”, which just began its second season. The show discusses sightings, patterns and experiences that suggest we’re not alone in the universe. “Do they have things that I think would blow it wide open and change the world in 10 seconds? Yes, I [think they] do,” says DeLonge. “But I don’t have any evidence of that myself, and I can’t prove that to the world. But I have my reasons, and I hope that one day that does happen, in a constructive way that doesn’t scare people.”

• DeLonge believes the government has its reasons for keeping information classified. It could be ’embarrassing or scary’, or even dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands. But he stressed that government officials ‘don’t have a monopoly on info’. He says that his own research academy has ‘a great deal of information’ it’s hoping to release ‘when the time is right – when it makes sense and when [they] can do it respectfully and in a way where it’s not adversarial with [their] partners in the US government.’

• DeLonge says that humans are making ‘gigantic strides’ on the subject of extraterrestrial life. Through ‘To The Stars’, he hopes everyone will be ‘part of this awakening’ in a way that is ‘scientifically accurate, scientifically based, and credible.’ He points to a memo by US Air Force General Nathan Twining in the early 1950s, in which Twining states, ‘not only are these (aliens) real, but they’re not visionary, they’re not fictitious’. Said DeLonge, “I remember reading that in my early 20s and I was just floored by it, I was like ‘oh my God’. People [ask] ‘where’s the evidence?’, well (Twining) came out and said it. That’s just one of tens of thousands of documents that have come out on the stuff but… that was one particular piece that I’ve always remembered.”

• In his UFO research, DeLonge started to notice patterns emerging. Then he started to draw attention from ‘a lot of people from the government’ and found himself in ‘a little hot water’ as a result of his findings. While he couldn’t go into detail, DeLonge admitted to finding something that ‘really scared him’ during his research. “If you’re in the ocean and you saw a great white shark, does that mean everything in the ocean is a great white shark? No, it means that one particular species is pretty dangerous if you’re dealing with it in a certain environment. It doesn’t mean that blue whales are dangerous, or that dolphins are dangerous. You’ve got to think of the universe as teeming with life and different types of supernatural forces.”

• “I think that we’re dealing with multiple frequencies of existence as well as linear travel,” explains DeLonge. “So my analogy is: you’re in the ocean and you see a jellyfish, then you see a dolphin, then you see a blue whale and you think you’ve seen it all. Then, all of a sudden, a coke can drifts by and you’re like, ‘What’s that? What the hell?’, when you don’t even know there’s land and humans making cans of soda. You’ve got to think of the universe that way – it’s not just one group, it’s not just one thing, it’s everything. It’s infinite, so I just think we have to wrap our heads around that.”

• The government might have details that would blow our minds, but it’s key that those in charge understand it first. DeLonge admits that he would ‘absolutely be thinking the same thing’ when it comes to keeping information classified and making sure ‘people don’t lose control of their emotions over a subject that we don’t even understand yet’. The government is not ‘one symbiotic, perfect functioning organism. There may be some people who agree with keeping information secret while others are keen to share it. But DeLonge says that, ultimately, ‘what everyone’s after are peaceful, progressive conversations that don’t scare people [and] that can help us achieve the things we need to achieve with regards to (the extraterrestrial) subject.’ Until then, the best we can do is explore the evidence and keep an open mind.

 

DeLonge, 44, has long been open about his interest in aliens; a subject he first delved into while on tour with Blink-182 before the days of smartphones, when there was ‘nothing to do but read books’ during long trips.

           Luis Elizondo

The musician grew up in a religious household, his mother a ‘hardcore devout Christian lady’ who made the family go to church multiple times a week, so it wasn’t until he started touring that DeLonge realised his mother’s beliefs weren’t upheld by everyone.

     General Nathan Twining

DeLonge told UNILAD that learning about different belief systems really ‘opened his eyes’ and incited an ‘obsession’ with finding out ‘what is this all about? Why are we here? Is it really an accident?’

The UFO enthusiast was determined to discover how humans could ‘change the way we think so we can progress as a species’, and found that the subject of aliens seemed to encompass everything he wanted to know, dealing with ‘religious beliefs systems, the potential for life out in the universe, different ways of thinking and [the] potential for understanding new types of technologies.’

DeLonge ultimately put music on the backburner to focus on his research with the help of his company To The Stars Academy, and in recent years the team has made waves with their work, one of the most recent accomplishments being the release of three videos showing UFOs.

The former frontman further explores the subject alongside Luis Elizondo, who headed the US government’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) between 2007-2012, in the new series of Unidentified.

In the show, airing on BLAZE between June 29 and July 4 as part of UFO week, the researchers discuss sightings, patterns and experiences that suggest we’re not alone in the universe.

While it can be hard to wrap your head around the idea of life beyond Earth, DeLonge has stressed there’s ‘thousands and thousands of documents and pieces of evidence that have come out from the [US] government’, whether they be from ‘flag level officers or Central Intelligence Agency declassification or people that work on programmes’.

In spite of the abundance of information that’s been made public however, DeLonge is convinced officials are holding some information close to their chests; information that could change life as we know it.
