TTSA Splits

A lot of people have asked me to comment on the split in the To the Stars Academy for Arts and Sciences. Just before Christmas, three TTSA board members suddenly announced their resignation; Luis Elizondo, Chris Mellon and Steve Justice. Source: https://silvarecord.com/2020/12/21/elizondo-mellon-justice-out-at-ttsa/. The departure of Elizondo in particular is derailing because he has been the Academy's principle media spokesman. This has been described as a "break-up", however it is not quite that bad. The TTSA will continue without those three members. Tom DeLonge still has his remaining associates, including his co-founders Jim Semivan and Hal Puthoff. Some commentators have raised concerns about the TTSA's stock prices falling, but so long as the UAP revelation momentum doesn't slow down, and it shows no signs of doing so, then I doubt that will be a problem. The Academy has not commented on the resignations and nor has anybody else. However the day before Christmas Eve, Elizondo Tweeted: "New dawn, new beginning, same friends. 2021 is shaping up to be a banner year. In the midst of shifting into 'second gear' with plenty of room for all to jump on board! Thanks to amazing #UFOTwitter and others for your continued support." That sounds very positive. He has used the phrase "second gear" a few times now and he's not defined it completely, but he has hinted that he plans to launch a new campaign with a more international flavour. Apparently James Fox is involved, so it probably includes a new documentary film or TV series. We still don't know the full reasons for Elizondo, Mellon and Justice quitting the TTSA. We may find out more over time. However when I was on the Kev Baker Show last year, we addressed the interviews Luis Elizondo did at the time and we felt that he wanted to say an awful lot more than he did and that possibly the TTSA management had been clipping his wings a bit, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2019/06/ben-emlyn-jones-on-kev-baker-show-48.html. With just a few more days left of 2020, it's thrilling to think what a fully-fledged Luis Elizondo might achieve in the "banner year" to come.
