Glenn Beck Hyperventilates About the End of America After Trump Indictment
Fox NewsThe indictment Thursday of former President Donald Trump over a 2016 hush money payment led to plenty of more-unhinged-than-usual opinions on Fox News, perhaps none more outlandish than those shared by former network host Glenn Beck.

During an interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Beck depicted the Manhattan grand jury's vote to indict Trump as a foreboding indicator that the United States is "no longer viewed as a superpower"—and more specifically a sign that Democrats want to see violence from Trump's supporters as a pretext to somehow strip them of their rights.

"What this is all about, I believe, is trying to inflame this country. They've wanted violence from the right from the beginning. They can't wait [for] it. They need it. Because if we strike out—look at January 6!" Beck said. He then for some reason called attention to the fact that "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley, one of the Capitol rioters who had been imprisoned for his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection, was moved into a halfway house this week.

Bernie Sanders vs. Howard Schultz: Longtime Starbucks CEO Grilled on Company's Union-Busting Tactics
Just weeks after the National Labor Relations Board accused Starbucks of engaging in "egregious and widespread misconduct" to prevent employees from unionizing, the company's longtime CEO Howard Schultz appeared before the Senate's Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Wednesday to answer questions. Committee Chair Bernie Sanders of Vermont grilled Schultz on the company's union-busting record and demanded an end to retaliation against workers. Since 2021, nearly 300 Starbucks locations have voted to unionize, but the company has responded by firing many organizers and shuttering unionized stores, among other tactics. Schultz is worth over $3 billion and has led Starbucks for much of its history, most recently as interim CEO for the last year as a permanent replacement was found. He stepped down on March 20. We feature excerpts from the hearing.

Enraged Fox News Host Warns After Trump Indictment: ‘People Better Be Careful'
Fox NewsOn the heels of the historic indictment of former President Donald Trump on Thursday, an enraged Fox News host Jesse Watters went on a rant seemingly warning of impending political violence.

The Fox host branded the indictment, which was announced during the latter half of The Five broadcast, "the stupidest thing I've ever seen" and a "disgrace" before seemingly threatening future violence.

"There's going to be a major ‘rally around the flag' feeling. I'm starting to feel it right now. I'm angry about it. I don't like it. This county is not going to stand for it," Watters warned. "And people better be careful. And that's all I'll say about that."

Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is off to Israel next month having voiced no concern about a three-fold increase in antisemitic incidents during his time in office.

DeSantis last visited Israel in 2019, shortly after he was first elected. He prayed at the Wailing Wall and signed a bill in Jerusalem outlawing antisemitism in Florida's public schools. The wife of now-deceased GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson introduced DeSantis at an event there just as he likes to imagine himself.

China's Middle East Deal: Iran & Saudi Arabia Reestablish Relations as U.S. Watches from Sidelines
Iran and Saudi Arabia have agreed to reestablish diplomatic relations after seven years and reopen their respective embassies within months, in a deal brokered Friday by China and signed in Beijing. The rapprochement between the two rivals is the latest sign of China's growing presence in world affairs and waning U.S. influence in the Middle East amid a shift in focus to Ukraine and the Pacific region. "If we have a more stable Middle East, even if it's mediated by the Chinese, that ultimately is good for the United States, as well," says author and analyst Trita Parsi, executive vice president of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft. He adds that the U.S. focus in the Middle East is mainly on helping Israel normalize relations with Arab states while "all of the pressure is taken off of Israel to end its occupation" of Palestinian territory.
