Former Blink-182 guitarist-vocalist Tom DeLonge reportedly reached out to Hillary Clinton’s campaign regarding the existence of UFOs. Hey, “Aliens Exist,” right?
As evidenced by the latest WikiLeaks email dump, and reported by The Wall Street Journal, Tom DeLonge’s e-mails to the Clinton campaign consisted of his correspondence with John Podesta, a high-ranking Clinton administrator. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Tom’s affinity for all things extraterrestrial is well-documented. Apparently, Podesta is known to be something of a UFO buff, himself.
The leaked communications between DeLonge and Podesta seem to center around a project Tom was working on about UFOs. As gleaned from their email exchange, Tom had seemingly interviewed John about the extraterrestrial topic. Other details from within the emails indicate that DeLonge was trying to set up a meeting between Podesta and other officials regarding the release of government documents on UFO technology.
In an e-mail from 2015, Tom is shown to be pitching a “sensitive” meeting with said bureaucrats to John. As covered by The A.V. Club, DeLonge’s emails to Podesta has the former Blink-182 songwriter mentioning the “A-Level officials” he wants John to meet regarding their apparently previously-discussed “sensitive topic.” Tom further states to the Hillary Clinton campaign officer that the subject relates to “Classified Science and DOD topics.”
“I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic. Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you.”
Within the emails, DeLonge and Podesta also made reference to the well-known Roswell UFO incident, the supposed 1947 occurrence of the U.S. government taking jurisdiction over a crash-landed alien spaceship. In his email conversations with the Clinton associate, Tom mentions a “General McCasland” who he says was in charge of a laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where DeLonge claims Roswell UFO remains were stored.
As detailed at length by the Inquisitr, Tom’s interest in aliens and UFOs may have very well been the cause of his split with Blink-182. Regardless, both DeLonge and his replacement in Blink-182, Alkaline Trio guitarist-vocalist Matt Skiba, are both conspiracy enthusiasts. Longtime Blink-182 bassist and singer, Mark Hoppus, is apparently one of the few Blink members who doesn’t entertain ideas of UFOs and government conspiracies.
DeLonge’s investigation of such “secret machines” extends to his book series, Strange Times. Tom recently released Strange Times: The Ghost in the Girl, the follow-up to his graphic novel Strange Times: The Curse of Superstition Mountain. Earlier this year, DeLonge authored Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows with academic A. J. Hartley. It is yet to be seen if Tom’s UFO discussions with the Clinton office will make their way into a future DeLonge tome.
Longtime fans of Tom DeLonge and Blink-182 are well aware of the musician’s love of alien lore. As introduced above, Blink’s smash 1999 album Enema of the State featured a signature DeLonge tune, “Aliens Exist,” the composition exploring Tom’s belief in extraterrestrials and his fear of their unknown intentions toward humankind.
What if people knew that these were real?
Leave my closet door open all night
I know the CIA would say
What you hear is all hearsay
Wish someone would tell me what was right
