Prince Charles is warning the world that it could soon be too late to tackle climate change, and countries must act decisively. Charles, the heir apparent to the British throne, said Saturday that “we now have a dangerously narrow window of opportunity in which to accelerate a green recovery, while laying the foundations for a sustainable future.” The 72-year-old monarch made his grim prediction in a recorded message to the Saudi Green Initiative Forum, just a week before the U.N. Climate Change Conference, or COP26, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 12. COP26 wi...
Donald Trump on Friday questioned whether Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Bob Woodward was "allowed" publish books about him.
Woodward was not granted his interview requests for his 2018 book Fear: Inside the White House. Trump then agreed to 18 interviews for his 2020 book, Rage. The final book in his trilogy, Peril, was published on Sept. 21 and co-written with Robert Costa.
"Does anybody really believe that longtime Con Man Bob Woodward, and his lightweight lapdog assistant Robert Costa, are implying in their book of fiction that I was planning to go to war with China, but that one of the dumber generals in the military called the Chinese to tell them that he will inform them if this action proceeds further. Milley may have called, but if so, he should be tried for treason. I never had even a thought of going to war with China, other than the war I was winning, which was on TRADE," Trump argued in a statement.
"To make up stories like this and to sell it to the public is disgraceful. I watched that craggy smug face of Woodward as he 'bullsh*ts' the public and said to myself, 'I wonder if history will really believe this stuff?' How do you get your reputation back?" Trump wondered. "I was the only President in decades to not get us into a war—I got us out of wars!"
"Our Country has been taken over by Scammers and Hoaxsters, and we have to take it back. Just like the Russia, Russia, Russia Scam has now been totally debunked and discredited as a FAKE Democrat/Crooked Hillary Plot, the 'go to war with China' story is even more ridiculous. It's incredible that someone is even allowed to write this stuff," Trump said ominously. "We no longer talk about greatness for our Country, everything is about political investigations, hoaxes, and scams."
Cell phone video from Georgia documented a fracas at a Locust Grove McDonald's after a customer grew irate over the lack of a zero calorie coffee sweetener, WSB-TB reports.
The incident reportedly occurred around 9 p.m. on Tuesday night when the store was being staffed by multiple 16-year-old workers.
WSB's Matt Johnson spoke to one worker
"I was scared, because like, you never know how crazy people are like," one employee said. "He could have had a gun and shoot us all."
"They want to keep arguing with us about Splenda and then, next thing you know, they're throwing coffee at me and my co-workers," the teen explained.
The teenagers responded in-kind by throwing a drink in "self-defense." Multiple teenage employees reportedly resorted to hiding in a refrigerator.
The workers reported calling police "like, four times" but the couple had left before officers arrived.
The family of the worker interviewed for the story says she has since quit her job.

A Colorado judge slapped two attorneys with a substantial penalty for pursuing Donald Trump's election lies in court, and provided a blueprint for punishing the twice-impeached one-term president's legal enablers.
Magistrate judge N. Reid Neureiter ordered attorneys Gary D. Fielder and Ernest John Walker to pay nearly $190,000 to the defendants they sued in baseless election fraud case over Trump's loss, and Los Angeles Times columnist Mark Barabak hailed the news as a victory for truth and democracy.
"Here's hoping the action by the U.S. district court judge sets a precedent that spreads widely through the land, as former President Trump and his enablers continue to push the 'Big Lie' of rampant voter fraud and seek to undermine the legitimacy of the current chief executive," Barabak wrote. "It's one thing to market that mendacity to fleece donors, salve the former president's velveteen ego or build an audience on Fox News, OAN or other Trumpaganda media outlets. Things are different in a court of law, and must be."
The pair's lawsuit, supposedly filed on behalf of 160 million voters, sketched out a vast conspiracy involving Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and the company Dominion Voting Systems to deprive Trump of another term in the White House, but Neureiter hauled the duo back into court after dismissing the case in April to consider possible sanctions for their actions.
"He asked if it occurred to the co-counsel — Walker, a former government lawyer; Fielder, a onetime local prosecutor — that they were being used by Trump to spread his self-serving propaganda?" Barabak wrote.
Fielder claimed they had a "good faith" belief that President Joe Biden had stolen the election, based on conspiracy theories from Trump and others, including MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, which the attorney described as "serious allegations made by serious people."
"While they were at it, Fielder and his co-counsel might have consulted the works of Dr. Seuss," Barabak wrote, "who had some interesting and authoritative things to say about Lorax and Sneetches, which would have held just as much water and benefit to their case."
Neureiter wasn't impressed by the duo's claims, and he took action against Fielder and Walker, just as other judges and legal authorities have against Trump allies who tried to overturn the election results in court -- including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Lin Wood.
"For that reason it's worth toasting Neureiter's decision to slap a price tag on the spread of Trump's Big Lie. Maybe dollars and cents will prove a deterrent," Barabak wrote. "Cheers."
