She is a dangerous radical who has tried to kill loggers. She has advocated Chinese Communist type population control. She has lied to the Senate. Tracy Stone-Manning is not fit to be a janitor for the feds, much less the head of a federal Bureau. Republicans have her on their target list.
FNC: “Fifteen Republican lawmakers in the House of Representatives on Monday sent a letter to Senate Energy and Natural Resource Committee chairman Joe Manchin, D-W.V., urging him to oppose President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Rep. Yvette Herrell of New Mexico led a letter with 14 of her House GOP colleagues for Manchin and the committee’s top Republican, Wyoming’s Sen. John Barrasso, outlining their concerns over BLM nominee Tracy Stone-Manning, citing her ties to a 1989 Idaho tree spiking plot. Stone-Manning has come under fire over allegations that she misled senators about her links to the eco-terrorist plot. She has also faced scrutiny for urging population control…”

“Given the Biden Administration’s supposed concern for domestic terrorism, this nomination is particularly puzzling and worrisome,” the letter reads. “Tree-spiking is a form of ecoterrorism, considered by the FBI at one point as one of its highest domestic terrorism priorities. Someone who has participated in such activities clearly does not have the judgment to serve in such an important position…We believe that she is not fit to lead an agency that is integral to the economic and environmental viability of our districts,” the lawmakers wrote of Stone-Manning. The Biden administration responded.
“Tracy Stone-Manning is a dedicated public servant who has years of experience and a proven track record of finding solutions and common ground when it comes to our public lands and waters,” a White House official told press on Monday. “She is exceptionally qualified to be the next Director of the Bureau of Land Management.”
The ranking Republican on the pertinent Senate committee disagrees. “Ranking Member Barrasso is deeply concerned that Tracy Stone-Manning collaborated with eco-terrorists, did not cooperate with investigators for years until she was caught, and then misled the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources,” said a spokesperson for Senator John Barrasso in a Monday email. “He finds these actions disqualifying and has called on President Biden to withdraw her nomination.”
