An enormous swathe of the Gulf of Mexico, spanning an area the size of Italy, was put up for auction on Wednesday for oil and gas drilling, in the latest blow to Joe Biden’s increasingly frayed reputation on dealing with the climate crisis.

>Pursuant to the Property Clause of the United States Constitution (Article 4, section 3, clause 2), Congress has the power to retain, buy, sell, and regulate federal lands, such as by limiting cattle grazing on them. These powers have been recognized in a long line of United States Supreme Court decisions.

So Congress and the Supreme Court, both overwhelmingly controlled by Republicans.

Wipe that egg off your face.

TIL that the Senate is "overwhelmingly controlled by Republicans."

Yeah, this guy has been spouting nonsense all over this comment section.

For anyone who cares about the truth, here’s the senate distribution:

Majority (51): Democratic (48) Independent (3)

Minority (49): Republican (49)

"The president’s Department of the Interior offered up a vast area of the central and western Gulf..."

... has "nothing to do with Biden"?

In fairness, most of the Gulf is already an hypoxic dead zone.

You're a clown, read articles before posting sweeping judgements

Sorry but this is fucking hilarious: OP posted the very opening paragraph of the article, verbatim. Very clearly, you did not read the article at all, since you are claiming OP is making sweeping judgements himself.
