WARREN, Mich. (WJBK) - A valet attendant who intervened in a stabbing at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren on Wednesday says he has been fired.
Didarul Sarder, an SP+ Valet Supervisor, was heading into work that morning when he heard the cry for help.
"The lady kept saying 'I'm dying, someone help' and it was just natural reaction," says Sarder. "I just see this lady getting stabbed. I only had like half a second to think and I unholstered my firearm and pointed it at her to drop the knife."
The stabbing happened right outside the main entrance of the central office building. Warren
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The University of Houston will host a Republican presidential debate prior to Super Tuesday after all.
The school sent out a release on Wednesday, saying it's been selected by CNN, the RNC and Telemundo as the host site for the debate on Thursday, Feb. 25.
The university was chosen to host a debate months ago, but that was in question after the Republican National Committee switched the broadcast from NBC to CNN. U of H says it will hold voter registration drives and other election related events before the debate.
The debate will be moderated by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
Over the last few months a stream of articles have crossed my screen, all proclaiming the need of governments and banks to eliminate cash. I’m sure you’ve noticed them too.
It is terrorists and other assorted madmen, we are told, who use cash. And so, to protect us from being blown up and dismembered on our very own street corners, governments will have to ban it.
It would actually take some effort to imagine a more obvious, naked attempt at fearmongering. Cash – in daily use for centuries if not millennia – is now, suddenly, the agent of spring-loaded, instant death? And we’re supposed to just accept that line?

I suggest everyone else in NH who may be considering not voting or supporting someone else in the primary - get out and go vote for Rand! Rand carried the ball as far as he reasonably could, put himself and his family through hell, all while supporting liberty in the senate full time. Rand is on the ballot in all 50 states, he simply stopped campaigning. It doesn't mean anyone should sit it out or actively support anyone else right now, primaries are about the direction we want to move the party.
What better message could we send the GOP than a strong showing for Rand despite him not actively campaigning anymore. He is on the ballot, lets stand with him.
Nearly one hundred liberty-loving early movers were in attendance for the press conference this morning held by the Free State Project at the Radisson in Manchester. FSP founder Jason Sorens spoke on the creation of the FSP and why the first 5,000 participants chose New Hampshire as the destination. Jason said,
“The free state project is working because it gives people hope”
That’s definitely true for me. When I moved here as an early mover for the FSP in 2006 I was pretty angry about the government. I felt very lonely in Florida, with little more than a handful of libertarians in the area. Now there are more liberty-minded people living at my intersection in Keene than there were in the entire city where I’m from.
With over 1,600 having moved across NH from all around the globe as early movers, (the official FSP move begins today) and having a major impact, it’s clear that there is hope for liberty here in the Shire. I’m not angry anymore and haven’t been for many years. I expect other libertarians who feel isolated or cornered where they live will have a similar transition when they are surrounded by people who actually care about liberty and are willing to do something about it. It’s quite encouraging to be here. Here’s the full video of the press conference:
After Jason Sorens’ speech, FSP president Carla Gericke got up to address the crowd and journalists in the room, officially announcing that the FSP has reached its goal of 20,000 liberty-minded folks signing and promising to move to New Hampshire within five years of today, Feb 3rd, 2016. It’s now been dubbed “Porcupine Day”, and happens right after Groundhog Day. (The porcupine is the mascot of the FSP.) Once here, the FSP movers are to put forth the maximum practical effort to achieve liberty in our lifetime. Carla explained to the audience what it took to get the project to completion, including a sustained, expensive ad campaign on Facebook, for which much credit was given to Vince Perfetto who is well known in the NH liberty community as the producer of the excellent documentary, “101 Reasons Liberty Lives in New Hampshire“.
When thinking about all the work we still have to do, it’s important to keep in mind that we don’t need majority support. If you’re waiting for 51 percent of the population to say “I’m libertarian and I believe everything you say,” you’ll lose your mind. What we need for success is intellectual leadership in a country that can influence government and the society overall.
That’s where the progress is being made. We’re only talking about 7 or 8 percent of a country that is necessary to provide the kind of influence you need. This was the case during the American Revolution, and it’s true today. You are part of that 8 percent.
Governments are constantly trying to outfox economic laws. Whether it's printing money, creating minimum wages, or even "regulating" companies to gain votes, the government continues to fight battles that it cannot win. The market is forever undefeated and always trumps the state. Ron Paul is back with another edition of Myth-Busters! Enjoy!

But this isn’t a political obituary for the 53-year-old Kentuckian. Despite his failed foray into presidential politics, there are many reasons to think his future is bright.
Assuming he successfully defends his Senate seat, he’ll begin his second term in 2017 unencumbered by aspirations for higher office—a position most suited to his strengths—and poised for relevance whether a Republican or Democrat is in the White House. He is a leading GOP voice on reforming the criminal-justice system, a policy issue that is all but destined to loom large in the next several years.
Without worrying about his path to the White House, he is likelier to emerge as the Senate’s leading critic of reckless foreign policy, helping to build an Inside-the-Beltway counterweight to the bipartisan establishment of overconfident interventionists.
The rise of facial-recognition technology, license plate readers, self-driving cars, and other “smart” consumer products makes future privacy showdowns an inevitability. No one is better positioned to capitalize on public anxiety or outrage.
Early Voting begins on March 3 -- just 27 days from now.
My campaign is organizing volunteers to stand outside the polling locations and serve as "Election Day Ambassadors" during Early Voting hours to put out yard signs and pass out literature to folks as they come to vote.
Can I count on you to put in a few hours working at the polls for me?
All you have to do is CLICK HERE to sign up for a shift at your local early voting location.
We will then send you an "Election Day Ambassador Packet" which will have yard signs and materials to work the polls.
I can't stress how important it is to have each polling location covered during Early Voting.
As you know, polls show that anti-establishment voters for the Presidential Primary make up nearly 70% of the GOP electorate in North Carolina.
These anti-establishment voters also cast their ballot for U.S. Senate on the same day they vote in the Presidential Primary.
That's why it's critical I have as many polling locations covered as possible with supporters passing out literature.
So won't you please CLICK HERE and sign up to volunteer at an Early Voting location near you?
