Vindication, thy name Is Tom DeLonge. After leaving Blink-182 a few years ago, Tom’s mission has been to expose government cover-ups and prove the existence of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (that’s “aliens” for you civilian-types).
A couple of years ago Tom’s UFO research company, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, published alleged leaked videos from 2004 of U.S. fighter pilots spotting UFOs. Then, last fall, the U.S. Navy confirmed the videos were actually real. And now, The Damn Pentagon has doubled down on the legitimacy of the footage and released it themselves. Hey, maybe now Tom can finally get that meeting with Hilary Clinton!
Tom Delonge getting vindicated by the US Navy for posting authentic UFO videos really must have kicked shit into high gear in the alien/UFO/UAP community, because people are really trying to get their asses arrested or at least make it on the news in the name of aliens. That joke event-turned-real life poor decision, Storm Area 51, has gotten real. People have descended on the small towns which neighbor the alleged alien-holding-government facility and they are causing more trouble than they’re worth.
We all laughed when Tom DeLonge quit his once-hugely successful punk-pop band Blink-182 in order to follow his dream of finding aliens or some shit. Well, Tom DeLonge found UFOs. Bet his wife wants him back now–he’s a space traveling frontiersman. His company, the To the Stars Academy, published videos which have now been confirmed to be legitimate. So technically he leaked private information? Is he gonna get the full Julian Assange, or?
Remember how there was that whole “Storm Area 51!” thing going around the internet for a while? Well, some dumbass actually did it. But it wasn’t hundreds of thousands of curious alien-lovers going to Area 51 to rescue whatever alien species they think are locked up there. It was a YouTuber and his friend, and they got arrested because that’s what happens when you trespass on highly-secret government facilities. Who’d of thought? Oh yeah, everyone.
File this under: Shit Bored People Do. Because you really have to be bored out of your damn mind to want to take a pilgrimage to Area 51, better known as the place the government allegedly hides all their secret information about aliens.
Tom DeLonge used to be the hottest member of Blink-182 (according to high school Allison), but he’s currently living life like the pop-punk Kanye West, which is to say he’s burned a bunch of professional bridges and is now a UFO expert.
A few years ago, Tom traded in Blink-182 for aliens and government cover-ups. Sadly, all that UFO research hasn’t been profitable for Tom, and his UFO truth-hunting company claims they’re more than $37 million in debt.
