(RepublicanDaily.org) – President Joe Biden has so far been unable to get Senate support for two of his nominees for administration positions. In March, senators rejected Neera Tanden for the top position in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), while David Chipman’s nomination for the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco, and Explosives (ATF) failed earlier this month. Now, it looks like another of Biden’s picks could be in danger.
Tracy Stone-Manning is the president’s selection to head up the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Stone-Manning’s previous ties to ecoterrorism and her problematic views on population control have made her unpopular among Conservatives, but Senate Democrats appear determined to get her into office.

Several Conservative figures have spoken out against Stone-Manning’s nomination. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), the ranking member on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, claimed GOP senators were united in their position against her.
It’s not just Republican lawmakers voicing their concerns; some private groups have also criticized Stone-Manning. Ben Cassidy, a senior figure in Safari Club International, expressed misgivings about her failure to answer questions about her past actions and statements transparently.
Tracy Stone-Manning was involved in a tree-spiking plot in Idaho in 1989. Tree spiking is a conservation tactic whereby metal rods are put into trees, making them more challenging to cut down. It damages machinery and causes serious injury to logging workers.
