By Michael Hurley , CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox dropped a tough one against a last-place team on Wednesday night, losing 6-5 in 10 innings to the Detroit Tigers. If the attitude of starting pitcher Martin Perez is any indication, the team doesn’t seem to be too worried about it. Perez spoke to the media after the loss, in which he he allowed three runs (two earned) in his 5.2 innings of work. Any loss hurts, but Perez’s confidence in the team didn’t dip a bit after this particular loss. “We’re going to be fine, man. I mean, we just come every day and prepare ourselves to go out there and compete,” Perez said. The 30-year-old then called back to some offseason prognostications about the team to ensure that those doubters will not be correct. “I know that the people said we’re not gonna be good this year. I’m sorry with what I’m gonna say, but we’re [bleeping] good,” Perez said. Well, all right then. “So [Thursday], we just are gonna come here and do our job … [Read more...] about Martin Perez Not Worried About Red Sox’ Loss: ‘We’re [Bleeping] Good’

Wednesday, FNC host Tucker Carlson opened his program in support of those skeptical of the COVID-19 vaccine, who in some cases have been maligned by politicians, the media, and other aspects of American culture. Carlson said the vaccine was not without some level of risk, and the discussion of that risk was being shut down. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Here’s a very simple question. How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccines? That’s not Americans who have been killed by the virus? That’s a huge number. It is how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus? Do you know the answer to that question? Do you know anything about the downside? We know a lot about the upside of vaccines, we’ve been completely in favor of vulnerable people taking vaccines. But what about the potential risks? You think you would know more about that than you do? We talk a lot about vaccines constantly, not just on this show, but in this … [Read more...] about FNC’s Carlson: Americans Have an ‘Absolute Right’ to Question Vaccine Without Being Silenced, Censored or Mocked

On Friday, the European Union took aim at one of America’s most iconic companies, Apple, with a multibillion-dollar antitrust lawsuit . The Europeans are hopelessly uncompetitive in the major tech industries , so they resort to lawsuits to slash at American supremacy. The Euro-socialists want to pilfer as much as 10 percent of Apple’s profit stream. This flimsy charge of “monopoly behavior” by the EU is becoming standard practice as Germany, France and others continue to fall technologically behind and their citizens become rapid purchasers of Silicon Valley products and services. The move by the EU is a classic shakedown — the money it wants is akin to imposing a foreign tariff on American products. This could cost U.S. shareholders hundreds of billions of dollars . Europe has similar suits against another trillion-dollar American company, Google. So the U.S. government is rushing to defend America’s crown-jewel companies that have added hundreds … [Read more...] about Why isn’t Washington defending American companies from foreign assaults?
