The Pentagon Has No Intention of Sharing UFO Information

• All of the UFO/UAP (‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’) news this summer created a considerable excitement in the air. Florida Senator Marco Rubio made an unprecedented request for a report from the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force. Most people, civilians and government officials alike, didn’t even know we HAD a UFO task force. Then the Pentagon came out and officially announced the ‘formation’ of the task force. Then the NY Times published an article alluding to additional programs and an acknowledgment of a government “crash retrieval program” that could be in possession of “off-world materials”. Heady stuff.

• Journalist Roger Glassel contacted Pentagon UAP spokesperson Susan Gough with some specific questions about the new task force. Ms. Gough provided answers in a professional fashion, but seemingly doused most hopes for some new era of government transparency on the subject.

• Question: Will the public be informed about any findings from the UAPTF of the nature and/or origins of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena?   Answer: “[T]o avoid disclosing information that may be useful to our adversaries, DOD does not discuss publicly the details of either the observations or the examination of reported incursions into our training ranges or designated airspace, including those incursions initially designated as UAP.” (ie: “No.”)

• Question: Will the newly established UAP Task Force look into other aspects of the nature and origins of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or will the UAPTF just look at the aspect of UAP being a potential threat to U.S. national security?   Answer: “The Department of Defense established the [task force] to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAP incursions into our training ranges and designated airspace. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAP incursions that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security. (ie: Pentagon is sticking to its position that they have no curiosity as to what these things are or where they came from, and are solely focusing on the potential national security threat, severely limiting the scope of what might be examined.)

• To summarize, the Pentagon’s UFO task force will take reports about UAP encounters if they might constitute a threat to national security and they promise to do a better job collecting and correlating such reports. But they won’t be releasing any of it for public consumption. The same goes for the Senate Intelligence Committee and the report the “requested”. That committee request may not even make it to the House bill, much less law. Furthermore, Congress hasn’t tied the request to any funding, so the DoD is under no obligation to comply. They can simply thank Congress for their input and proceed to ignore them, just as Ms Gough evaded the journalist’s questions.

• If there’s going to be any serious UFO disclosure it’s going to be up to the private sector and organizations such as Tom DeLonge’s ‘To The Stars Academy’, or whistleblowers like Luis Elizondo, or some high-ranking deathbed confessions – which the Pentagon can deny or obfuscate.

Some disappointing news on the UFO front came out this week, likely dampening the hopes of many people in the ufology community who have been eagerly looking forward to some sort of forthcoming disclosure from the government on this subject. As regular readers are already aware, there was considerable excitement in the air this summer following a number of revelations and surprising announcements on the topic of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs). First we saw a request from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, led by Marco Rubio, for a public report from the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force. This came as quite a surprise to people, including many in the government, who didn’t even know that we had a UAP Task Force.

That was followed by an official announcement of the formation of the task force by the Pentagon. After that, major newspapers such as the New York Times began digging into the subject, even raising the prospect of the potential disclosure of additional programs that might even include an acknowledgment of a government “crash retrieval program” that could be in possession of “off-world materials.

This led journalists in the ufology field to press the Pentagon for additional details. One such person was investigative journalist Roger Glassel, who contacted Pentagon UAP spokesperson Susan Gough with a number of specific questions about the new task force and its anticipated activities as they proceed to compile existing information on UAP encounters by the military and create channels for the collection of future reports. I first saw the article teased on Twitter.

The answers Roger received give us the disappointing news I alluded to above. Ms. Gough (which is pronounced “Goff,” by the way, as I only learned from her this week) provided Glassel with answers in a professional fashion, but seemingly doused most hopes for some new era of government transparency on the subject. Here are two of the key questions that produced bad news.

Tom DeLonge and His Obsession With UFOs

Article by Bec Heim                              August 31, 2020                             (filmdaily.co)

• People believe in the existence of alien life. One in five Americans believe that UFO sightings prove the existence of extraterrestrials. Former Blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge (pictured above) is one of those people. In the early 2000s, DeLonge told an interviewer that he believed that the US military knew more about UFOs than they were letting on. He claimed to have spoken with someone who ran into an alien seven stories underneath the Pentagon.

• DeLonge’s fascination with UFOs and aliens has been well documented and praised by the community. In 2015, DeLonge left the band to work on non-musical endeavors. Later he became the president and CEO of the UFO research organization, ‘To The Stars Academy’, which he founded due to his frustration with government secrets regarding space and the universe at large.

• In an interview with Papermag, DeLonge claimed that while camping on a flight path to Area 51, he tried to project his thoughts and “made contact with aliens”. That night, DeLonge claims he was “woken” at 3am. “My whole body felt like it had static electricity,” says DeLonge. “It sounded like there were about 20 people there, talking. And instantly my mind goes, OK, they’re at our campsite, they’re not here to hurt us, they’re talking about shit, but I can’t make out what they’re saying. But they’re working on something.”

• In 2016, WikiLeaks exposed emails between DeLonge and Hilary Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta. DeLonge was trying to arrange a meeting with Podesta about “intellectual life and greater government disclosure.” DeLonge also assisted Air Force Major General William N. McCasland in assembling his UFO advisory team. DeLonge’s research into UFOs gave him inroads with officials in government and the military.

• In 2017, as a New York Times article revealed the existence of Pentagon videos of Navy jets chasing UFOs, DeLonge’s ‘To The Stars Academy’ ‘unofficially’ released those videos. Those UFO videos were officially released by the Pentagon in 2020.

• In 2019, DeLonge struck a deal with the History Channel to produce a six-part series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation” in which DeLonge and others investigate the secret UFO program of the US government. “I’m thankful to History for giving the To The Stars Academy team of world-class scientists, engineers, and intelligence experts the opportunity to tell the story in a comprehensive and compelling way,” said DeLonge in a written statement. “I think everyone that watches the show will walk away with questions answered and a feeling of, ‘Wow, I get it now.’”

• In October 2019, ‘To the Stars Academy’ entered into a five-year, $750,000 cooperative agreement with the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command to “to advance To The Stars Academy’s (exotic) materiel and technology innovations in order to develop enhanced capabilities for Army ground vehicles.” Dr. Joseph Cannon of US Army Futures Command said, “[W]e look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.”

• In June 2020, DeLonge announced that ‘To the Stars Academy’ was able to have language regarding ‘unidentified aerial phenomenon’ (ie: UFOs) added to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Authorization Act. The act, if passed, will change how the government reports and conceals classified info about UFO sightings and related topics.

People believe in the existence of alien life. In fact, one in five Americans believe that cases of UFO sightings are, in fact, confirmation of alien visitation. There have been some odd UFO sightings over the years, infamous cases of probably alien abduction, and, of course, the infamous Pentagon tapes, that make people look to the sky and think “maybe”. One of those people? Former Blink-182 singer and guitarist, Tom DeLonge.

The “All the Small Things” singer has been looking into the existence of UFOs for decades. One of Blink-182’s

Maj General William N. McCasland

songs is entitled “Aliens Exist” and DeLonge also has his own UFO research organization called To The Stars Academy. DeLonge’s decades-long research and fascination with UFO sightings and aliens has been well documented and praised by the community. Here’s a somewhat condensed version of things.

Early 2000s — DeLonge talks about hidden UFO info in the military

In the early 00s, DeLonge had an interview with an unidentified person in which he shared his thoughts on the US military and their knowledge of UFO sightings. DeLonge mentions a friend who talked with government employees about UFO sightings and activity. DeLonge also has a collection of over 100 hours of testimonies about UFOs.

In one testimony, DeLonge claims, he has a story of a man who went seven stories underground of the Pentagon and ran into an alien.

2015 – DeLonge ramps up with his UFO investigation

2015 was a busy year for DeLonge, who left Blink-182, in order to work on non-musical endeavors. During that year, he claimed to have made contact with aliens in an interview with Papermag. He said that while camping on a flight path to Area 51, he tried to project his thoughts. DeLonge was woken up at 3am by the following:

“My whole body felt like it had static electricity . . . It sounded like there were about 20 people there, talking. And instantly my mind goes, OK, they’re at our campsite, they’re not here to hurt us, they’re talking about shit, but I can’t make out what they’re saying. But they’re working on something.”
Later in 2015, he founded To The Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, where he is also President and CEO. The company was created due to DeLonge’s frustration with government secret regarding space and the universe at large.

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?
