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
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.
