Blink 182 fans congratulate guitarist Tom DeLonge after his involvement in the search for UFOs was recognized nationally.
On Wednesday (July 26), the US Congress heard from a former military intelligence officer turned whistleblower who claimed the government had been kept in the dark about unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs), better known as UFOs.
During the historic House Oversight Committee hearing, David Grusch claimed that law enforcement agencies had covered up the existence of UAPs.
He was joined by former Navy commander David Fravor, who also testified to having seen an object flying across the sky during a training mission in 2004.
At one point in his testimony, Fravor mentioned that former Pentagon official Luis Elizondo resigned from directing the agency’s secretive UFO/UAP program in 2017 in “protest.”
“It was brought to my attention that Luis had left the Pentagon in protest and joined forces with Tom DeLonge … and others to found To The Stars Academy, an organization that has been promoting the issue with leading industry experts and US government officials.” said Fravor.
They worked with New York Times He urged journalists to publish a series of articles in 2017 that would “remove the stigma surrounding UFOs,” he explained.
“These articles have opened a door for the government and the public that cannot be closed. This has sparked an interest from our elected officials, who care not about little green men, but to find out where these crafts are, where they come from and what technology they possess [and] how they work.”
In 2017, To The Stars released three shared videos containing clips of what appeared to be UFOs captured by Navy pilots. Two years later, the military recognized the legitimacy of the footage and worked with the company to study alien alloys.
According to Fravor, the clip in which he mentions DeLonge by name was shared on X (formerly known as Twitter), with several Blink 182 fans applauding the rocker’s persistence.
“I once had a friend who said that Tom DeLonge’s fondness for aliens is something you only hear in movies,” one person commented. “And she was so right [because] This movie just got to the good part where the guy who’s crazy isn’t actually crazy, it’s the one who was right all along.”
“Your name and To The Stars were mentioned at the hearing!” a second commented. “Good work [clapping emoji].”
A third added: “Have said it before and will do it again. It’s really great that our government was forced to admit the existence of UFOs by the guy who wrote Dysentery Gary.”
“Tom DeLonge tried to tell us,” said another, sharing a headline about the hearings.
The singer and guitarist has long been public with his theories about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
In conversation with The Independent In a new interview, DeLonge said, “Everything that’s happening right now is 100 percent thanks to To The Stars.”
“I mean, I knew that, and my people know that… we really feel like we’ve really changed the way the world runs at our company.”
