“encouraged Americans to only have two children and no more”
We recently wrote that Tracy Stone-Manning, Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management, once worked with eco-terrorists. Now we have learned that she also advocated for population control.
Is this person really the best we can do for this position?
Houston Keene reports at FOX News:
Biden nominee called for population control to protect environment: ‘We must breed fewer consuming humans’
Tracy Stone-Manning, President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), argued in her graduate thesis that Americans need to engage in population control to protect the environment.
Stone-Manning has already come under fire in recent weeks for her connection to a tree spiking incident – an ecoterrorism tactic – in Idaho in the 1980s, where she traded her court testimony for legal immunity.
But her past links to ecoterrorists aren’t the only controversial material in her background. In her graduate thesis, a copy of which was reviewed by Fox News, Stone-Manning also urged Americans to have no more than two kids in order to protect the environment.
“The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact,” states the thesis, which was first flagged by the Daily Caller on Thursday. “We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans.”
Stone-Manning created a series of eight advertisements for her thesis that focused on the issues of overgrazing, overpopulation, a mining law from the late 1800s and the lumber industry.
One ad refers to a human child as an “environmental hazard” and encouraged Americans to only have two children and no more.
The Chinese Communist Party would undoubtedly approve.

Even Obama’s head of the Bureau of Land Management has backed out of supporting Stone-Manning.
Samuel Chamberlain reports at the New York Post:
Former Obama official calls on Biden nominee to pull out over tree-spiking case
A former head of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) under Barack Obama called on President Biden’s pick for the same post to withdraw her nomination Monday over her ties to a “tree-spiking” operation meant to sabotage logging efforts in the 1980s.
Robert Abbey, who headed BLM between 2009 and 2012, told E&E News that he had initially supported Tracy Stone-Manning’s nomination, but now believed that “that she should withdraw her name from further consideration for the BLM director position.”…
“As a 30-year BLM career employee, I don’t take her actions lightly, nor should anyone else,” Abbey said, according to The Hill. “If Stone-Manning participated in any aspect of planning, implementation or cover-up in the spiking of trees, then she should not be confirmed.”
Republicans should oppose her confirmation. There have got to be better candidates available.DONATE
