President Biden has nominated Montana environmental activist and Democrat operative Tracy Stone-Manning of Montana to head the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management.

Stone-Manning got her start in environmental activism as the spokesperson for the mother of all radical organizations — Earth First.

Only after entering politics did Stone-Manning claim she left the job because the monkey wrenchers were just too darn angry.

Who knew that ecoterrorism and arson had a dark side?

PeakNation™ will recall the monkey wrenching of Aspen’s natural gas pumping station over the Christmas holiday that left the resort in the cold for days.

The culprit claimed to be an eco warrior for Earth First.

Stone-Manning was former Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s chief of staff, and worked as an aide to that state’s U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, both Democrats.

More recently she’s been with the National Wildlife Federation, a fluffy-sounding group that pursues policies to lock up public lands from the public.

She’s the kind of nature lover who prefers trees to remains untouched by anything except wildfire.

Stone-Manning is too radical for the job, and Colorado U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper would serve the Western Slope well to say no to this nominee.
