The ex-president’s blog has drawn a considerably smaller audience than his once-powerful social media accounts, according to engagement data compiled with BuzzSumo, a social media analytics company. The blog posts come in the form of statements that are also sent to supporters via email. A blow to the newest blog’s reach came last week when Twitter booted an account with more than 2,100 followers that primarily shared Trump’s blog posts. Trump’s Twitter ban is permanent, and his temporary YouTube suspension will be lifted when the company decides that the threat of violence is no longer imminent. Research has consistently found no evidence of anti-conservative bias from the most popular social media platforms.

Lafayette Square near the White House reopens to public

WASHINGTON — Lafayette Square, the park across from the White House, reopened Monday to the public nearly a year after federal authorities fenced off the area at the height of nationwide protests over policing following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The square, which offers perhaps the best view of the White House to the public, was closed after U.S. Park Police officers last June forcefully dispersed protesters who had gathered near the White House. The protesters were ejected from the square shortly before then-President Donald Trump walked across the park to stand near St. John’s Church to pose before cameras holding a Bible. Fencing still surrounds the square named after the American Revolutionary War hero, but entryways on the northern side of the park were quietly opened to the public on Monday morning. Lafayette Square has long been one of the nation’s most prominent venues for demonstrations.

Commodity gains restrain dollar ahead of inflation data

TOKYO/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The dollar hovered near multi-month lows on Tuesday with lofty commodity prices lending support to exporters’ currencies, though caution about U.S. inflation bringing forward rate rises kept the greenback from sliding. The similarly exposed Canadian currency, which hit an almost four-year high on Monday, held at C$1.2096 per dollar. The euro was broadly steady at $1.2142 after hitting a two-month top on Monday and the yen held at 108.81 per dollar. [MKTS/GLOB]“There are a lot of cross currents,” said Bank of Singapore currency analyst Moh Siong Sim, as surging commodity prices on one hand lift commodity currencies and on the other add to the inflationary pressure that has got risk assets jittery. The Canadian dollar is within striking distance of a six-year peak and copper exporter Chile’s peso held near its best since 2019.

The DarkSide ransomware group appeared to acknowledge the hack and said it would change its approach to future targets. The group accused of carrying out the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack has said that it never intended to cause disruption to society, and would approach targets differently in the future. A ransomware group compromised the pipeline on Friday and demanded money in exchange for its release. The FBI said on Monday that DarkSide ransomware was responsible for the hack. Joseph Blount, the pipeline's CEO, told State Department officials at a Monday meeting that fuel shortages were likely, Bloomberg reported.

Reporters covering the Biden administration are frustrated with the White House's "quote approval" rules. "Every reporter I work with has encountered the same practice," another reporter told Politico. Reporters are usually unwilling to push back on or reject interviews from the White House, considering the competitive nature of the industry. One reporter told Politico: "If you start fomenting an insurrection, keep me updated." "We're never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access," she continued.

Colonial Pipeline shutdown: Here’s the latest.
  + stars: | 2021-05-11 | by ( Clifford Krauss | Niraj Chokshi | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
The vital fuel pipeline stretching 5,500 miles from Texas to New Jersey remained largely shut down on Tuesday after last week’s ransomware attack. Colonial Pipeline, the company that operates the pipeline, said Monday that it hoped to restore most operations by the end of the week. The pipeline provides the Eastern United States about half its energy. Brian Kemp of Georgia has signed an executive order suspending his state’s gasoline tax through Saturday, which amounts to roughly 20 cents a gallon. Gas Buddy, a website that tracks gas prices, reported that nearly 8 percent of Virginia gas stations were without gasoline, apparently more a result of panic buying than a shortage of gas.

This is going to be a supply event," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.com. Landlocked Southern cities — Atlanta, in particular — risk running low on fuel, numerous oil analysts said. "If the pipeline doesn't restart, refiners have to reduce their operation, because they're going to run out of storage space," Lipow said. DeHaan said any event that would slow refining capacity heading into the summer driving season would be bad news. "The more hoarding happens, the longer this event impacts supply," DeHaan said.

REUTERS/Kevin LamarqueWASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday defended himself against critics who say expanded unemployment benefits offered in the COVID-19 relief bill passed in March are keeping Americans from taking new jobs. Biden said the administration will remind U.S. states this week that any unemployed American offered a comparable job must take it or risk losing unemployment benefits. He is also directing the U.S. Labor Department to work with states to reinstate requirements that those receiving unemployment benefits must demonstrate they are actively looking for work. “If you’re receiving unemployment benefits and you’re offered a suitable job, you can’t refuse that job and just keep getting unemployment benefits,” Biden said. Republican lawmakers blamed a bad jobs report last week on the Democratic president’s decision to offer expanded unemployment benefits through August.

The federal government issued a rare emergency declaration on Sunday after a cyberattack on a major U.S. pipeline choked the transportation of oil to the eastern U.S. The Colonial Pipeline, responsible for the country’s largest fuel pipeline, shut down all its operations Friday after hackers broke into some of its networks. The emergency declaration from the Department of Transportation aims to ramp up alternative transportation routes for oil and gas. The cyberattack is believed to be the work of a Russian cybercrime gang called DarkSide. Many Russian cybergangs work as independent operations, though they are sometimes recruited to work for Russian intelligence — and they generally avoid attacking targets in Russia.

Biden will also discuss the rules of unemployment insurance, according to the official. The New York Times reported on Biden's expected announcement earlier on Monday, saying the efforts would be related to the continued implementation of his coronavirus relief plan. Republicans have blamed enhanced unemployment benefits for the numbers, saying the benefits discourage people from returning to work.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said the House-passed legislation would “in effect repeal Title IX” by making it easier for transgender women to play on girls teams. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., said that allowing “male-bodied athletes” to compete against females would “totally undermine” girls basketball. The International Olympic Committee has allowed transgender athletes to compete for years under specific parameters, and, to date, there have been no known transgender women compete in the Olympics. Republicans contend the Equality Act would open the floodgates for transgender girls and women to play on female sports teams and hurt others’ chances to compete. “Let us be clear, there are many real threats to girls’ and women’s access and opportunity in sports,” the group said.

Colonial Pipeline/Handout via REUTERS./File PhotoThe attack on Colonial Pipeline last week was one of the most disruptive digital ransom schemes ever reported and has sent shockwaves across the industry. The southeastern United States would likely be the first to see price increases at retail pumps, and demand has already picked up as drivers fill regional storage tanks. Colonial said on Sunday it restarted some smaller lines between fuel terminals and customer delivery points but its main lines remained shut. It moves over 2.5 million barrels per day (bpd) of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, supplying motorists and major airports. If the disruption stretches on, fuel suppliers would need to use trucks and rail to transport fuel to compensate.

WASHINGTON — The Department of Homeland Security has begun implementing a strategy to gather and analyze intelligence about security threats from public social media posts, DHS officials said. They said DHS officials have been consulting with social media companies, private companies and nonprofit groups that analyze open-source social media data. DHS officials say that the counterterrorism case for analyzing social media is strong and that they believe social media can be a useful predictor of threats. "We do not, as the FBI, simply patrol social media looking for problems," he said. In a sense, DHS will now do just that, officials said — patrol public social media looking for intelligence pointing to threats.

France’s third-largest listed bank said it is looking to boost profitability in the investment banking division and stabilise revenue after its flagship equity derivatives business, long a strength, was hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic last year. “Global Markets will deliver... a more predictable performance,” SocGen’s head of Global Markets Jean-Francois Gregoire told analysts. The bank said it targeted a return on normative equity of more than 10% in its global banking and investor solutions businesses from 2023, up from 7% now. It also either quit or cut back some corporate and investment bank (CIB) activities, such as commodities trading.
