Ever since last June when President Trump directed the Pentagon to create a Space Force, in order to “have American dominance in space,” speculation has run rampant among some that the real reason was to study UFOs and/or protect us from the intelligence(s) behind them.
1st a secret Pentagon program to investigate unidentified areal phenomena is revealed to the public & now Trump orders the establishment of a new branch of the military called the Space Force due to national security. Coincidence? #conspiracy #F2B #disclosure #UFO #SpaceForce

Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Pentagon’s UFO program, otherwise known as AATIP, (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) had this to say about that speculation last July during his lecture at the MUFON Symposium in Cherry Hill, New Jersey:
“AATIP is a ploy for the administration’s new Space Force. (laughs) Umm, I don’t even know where to begin with that. Umm. No. Now, could it be used to bolster that argument? Sure. Okay. In the end, if it helps us, go ahead, use it. I don’t care. I think that’s great. You wanna say that the UAP studies is now helping us create a Space Force so we can go ahead and look at this problem seriously? Sign me up. Sure. Again, here we go into the habit of filling in information points with things that we don’t know. I don’t know why the administration is creating a Space Force. Maybe it’s a good idea. Maybe it’s not such a good idea. I don’t know. I think ultimately it’s up to voters to decide. You make the decision if it is or not. But I will tell you, if, our humble little program, AATIP, helped inform that decision, and they’re going to come back and fund this program in a robust manner where we’re gonna at it logically and we’re gonna look at it with the best scientists and intelligence officers and critically really look at this. I mean alternative analysis. Healthy skepticism, but of source, alternative analysis. If it’s gonna help that, let’s do it.”

Then, in February of this year, Tom DeLonge, whose company, “To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science,” (TTSA) has turned the world of UFOs upside down in the past 18 months, posted this on his Instagram:
“We have also brought on a new TTSA ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER Chris Herndon from THE WHITE HOUSE, who has decades of US Gov Experience- Chris was until recently the Chief Information Officer overseeing all Secure Communications for the Executive Branch. Chris supports our effort, and believes strongly in our mission to learn more about revolutionary technologies, help the US Gov’s efforts on UAP matters, and to educate the public on our findings. Exciting times ahead.”
Herndon was the Deputy Assistant to Trump and Director of White House Information Technology from April 2017 to December 2018. He also follows me on Twitter to stay up to date on the latest in UFO news!
Herndon retweeted this quote from Elizondo that I tweeted in March:
Was Trump one of those individuals? Was Herndon trying to give us a hint?
After DeLonge made that announcement, the speculation raged on that Trump was secretly creating the Space Force to study UFOs.
Even before that, some in the mainstream media had made note of it:
President Trump’s order to create a military Space Force gave conspiracy theorists another tantalizing piece of evidence — some say the best yet — that the government is hiding the truth about extraterrestrial visitors. https://t.co/6nBmOzORnq #DeepState #UFOs #Aliens pic.twitter.com/1ru5SlgIcQ

Also in February, Travis Barker, drummer for Blink 182, which DeLonge formed and lead for many years, was on the Joe Rogan podcast and dropped this tantalizing piece of information:
"The other day I talked 2 [Tom #DeLonge). He's like, 'I'm on the way 2 the fucking White House, bro. And don't ask any questions.'" ~@travisbarker – The arrogance & ignorance of @joerogan on full display here. If TD said he's on way to WH, I believe him. But who did he meet? #ufo https://t.co/LO3wrxRZgz

Did DeLonge and other members of TTSA meet with Trump to brief him on the UFO subject? Will that be part of an upcoming episode of the TTSA docu-series, “Unidentified” on History Channel? Did Trump just violate his History Channel NDA and prematurely let the cat out of the bag, ruining a big surprise/reveal in a future episode of “Unidentified?” 🙂
We don’t know. And the NDA comment was a joke. But what we do know is that Trump was briefed about UFOs and he spoke about it to George Stephanopoulus of ABC News:
Stephanopoulus: Before we go, one of the things you have as president is the access to all the information…
Stephanopoulus: …in the world. All the mysteries out there. And I was just struck in the last couple of weeks…we’re reading more and more reports of Navy pilots seeing lots and lots of UFOs.
Stephanopoulus: Have you been briefed on that? What do you make of it?
Trump: I have. I have. I think it’s probably…I want them to think whatever they think. They do say, I mean, I’ve see…I’ve seen and I’ve read and I’ve heard and I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.
Stephanopoulus: Do you think you’d know if there were evidence of extraterrestrials?
Trump: I think my…our great pilots would know. And some of them really see things that are a little bit different than in the past. So we’re gonna see. But we’ll watch it. You’ll be the first to know.
Was this briefing/meeting back when Barker said DeLonge told him he was going to the White House? Or was it recent? Or was there was more than one?
As far as his comments to ABC? Does Trump not particularly believe what our Navy pilots have been saying about the UFOs they’ve seen? For me, the correct answer would have been, “Our fighter pilots are some of the best observers in the world when it comes to what’s in our skies. And they’re trusted to protect this country and if needed, fight wars. If they say they’re seeing UFOs, I believe them. We should support our troops. What are these UFOs? We don’t know. But if and when I find out, you’ll be the first to know. Nobody knows more about UFOs than Donald Trump. Believe me.”
What did Trump mean when he said, “And some of them really see things that are a little bit different than in the past.” Is it possible he learned about the upgrade in radar (AESA) that occurred in 2014 which allowed F/A-18 pilots based on the USS Roosevelt to start “seeing” these objects on almost a daily basis off the East Coast? I’m highly skeptical that he would know that.
Here’s one of the UFOs those pilots saw. Does Trump not believe this is a real video?
As far as if our pilots would know if there was evidence of extraterrestrials? Well, unless they open up a UFO, look inside and find an ET behind the wheel with a “Made on Mars” stamp on its ass, I don’t think they would. Believe me.
