After the junta declared domestic terrorism a top priority, it appointed a domestic terrorist to head the Bureau of Land Management. Tracy Stone-Manning was aware that she was being investigated in 1989 and again in 1993 when she agreed to an immunity deal with the government to avoid criminal felony prosecution. Stone-Manning was involved in tree-spiking incidents with the eco-terrorist group Earth First!. Stone-Manning wrote and sent an obscenity-laden letter to the Forest Service warning “we” spiked trees with 500 pounds of spikes. Tree-spiking is the hammering of a nail or metal rod into a tree trunk, with the deliberate intent to cause death or serious physical harm to logging personnel. When the blade hits the spike, the spike fragments like shrapnel. Stone-Manning admitted to writing the letter. The immunity deal required Stone-Manning to rat out her fellow terrorists and co-conspirators. Investigators testified Stone-Manning was involved in planning the tree-spiking incident in the Clearwater National Forest in 1989. Stone-Manning lied on her Senate questionnaire denying that she had never been involved in, or under criminal investigation for, tree-spiking. Sen. John Risch said at Stone-Manning’s confirmation hearing:
She perjured herself in two ways. One is when she denied having been investigated as the record is absolutely clear she was investigated. And the second, when she said she did not participate in this tree spiking. This was one of the questions that was asked, ‘Did you have personal knowledge of, participate in, or in any way directly or indirectly, support activities associated with the spiking of trees in any forest during your lifetime?’ “No.” Under oath, “no”, “no.” Under oath.You know, I’ve prosecuted, I don’t know how many cases. This, for a prosecutor, is shooting fish in a barrel. She shouldn’t be in front of this committee for confirmation to a major position in this administration. She should be in front of a jury explaining to them why she committed perjury, and why she lied to Congress.
My friends, if you want to confirm her, you absolutely can. But believe me, this stain on this administration will last for the next three and a half years. If the Biden administration wants to have the face and the character of their administration represented by this individual, this attempted murderer, this perjuror, this liar, this conspirator if that’s what you want in the administration and that’s what you want for the face of the administration, here’s your person. Confirm her.
A Freedom of Information Act request revealed that NBC News colluded with the Biden Administration to go easy on Tracy Stone-Manning during her confirmation hearing, and whitewash over her terrorist history.
This is pretty incredible…
Think about the media circus a few years ago when US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assaulting someone when he was a teenager.
There was no promise from NBC News (and other mainstream propagandists) to go easy on the allegations against Justice Kavanaugh that went back 30+ years.
Instead, they smeared his name and deemed him guilty.
It’s also noteworthy that, during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, several protestors stormed the Capital and physically accosted United States Senators in order to prevent the Constitutional voting process from occurring. Yet NBC News declined to label those protestors ‘domestic terrorists’, or to claim that democracy was ‘under attack’ because they had criminally trespassed into the Capitol. Instead, they, along with the Biden junta, label anyone who questions the 2020 stolen election or attended the January 6th, 2021 protest at the Capitol Building a domestic terrorist.
