Despite pressure from senators to scrap the nomination amid recent controversy, President Biden is standing by Tracy Stone-Manning in her bid to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
“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,” the official stated. “She is exceptionally qualified to be the next Director of the Bureau of Land Management.”
This statement from the White House comes despite a recent bombshell concerning Stone-Manning and her links to eco-terrorism and her highly controversial views on population control.
According to documents obtained by Fox News, Tracy Stone-Manning “collaborated with eco-terrorists” to spike trees.
Stone-Manning garnered legal immunity in exchange for her testimony. In her testimony, Stone-Manning admitted to retyping and sending a letter to the U.S. Forest Service on behalf of John P. Blount. The letter alleged that hundreds of trees in an Idaho forest had been spiked. Blount was eventually sentenced to 17 months in prison for the tree spiking.
For much-needed context, tree spiking involves placing metal rods into trees. These rods are intended to damage saws that have, in turn, severely injured loggers. In other words, Stone-Manning confessed to helping carry out this dangerous eco-terrorist strategy.
Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) has been at the forefront of this controversy, pointing out that Stone-Manning lied to Congress when she claimed that she had never been under federal investigation.
“This investigator has confirmed what I have been saying. Tracy Stone-Manning collaborated with eco-terrorists who had booby-trapped trees with metal spikes. She mailed the threatening letter for them and she was part of the cover-up,” Mr. Barrasso commented to the Washington Times on Friday. “She did not cooperate with investigators until she was caught.”
To make matters worse, Stone-Manning’s graduate thesis suggested that population control could help to protect the environment.
Stone-Manning also developed a political advertisement that labeled American children as environmental hazards.
