    In the U.S. no one is Above the Law, as this especially Applies to Public Servants such as any President, Governor, Congressperson, Senator, Board of Supervisor's Member, Mayor, City Councilperson, Judge, Court Clerk, Police Officer, etc.!

    CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 20 MISCELLANEOUS SUBJECTS, Section 3, Members of the Legislature, and all public officials and employees, executive, legislative and judicial …shall, before they enter upon the duties of their respective offices, take and subscribe to the following oath or affirmation:

    I ,__________________________________do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties that I am about to enter.


    Book I, Chapter X, Of Wages and Profit in the Different Employments of Labour and Stock, PART II, Inequalities occasioned by the Policy of Europe, I.10.67

    “The property which every man has in his own labor, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable. The patrimony of a poor man lies in the strength and dexterity of his hands; and to hinder him from employing this strength and dexterity in what manner he thinks proper without injury to his neighbor, is a plain violation of this most sacred property. It is a manifest encroachment upon the just liberty both of the workman, and of those who might be disposed to employ him. As it hinders the one from working at what he thinks proper, so it hinders the aothersa from employing whom they think proper. To judge whether he is fit to be employed, may surely be trusted to the discretion of the employers who se interest it so much concerns. The affected anxiety of the law–giver lest they should employ an improper person, is evidently as impertinent as it is oppressive.”-Adam Smith

    LA City Charter, Section 215. Oath of Office. Every officer provided for in the Charter shall, before entering upon the discharge of the duties of office, take the following oath or affirmation:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California and the Charter of the City of Los Angeles, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office (Mayor, LA City Councilperson) according to the best of my ability.”

    I have received calls daily from creditors who I believe are associated with the debt I owe associated with Los Angeles Superior Court Cases 10K18049 (WINN LAW GROUP vs. Michael Lofton) and Los Angeles Superior Court Case BC511443 (Lang, Richert & Patch vs. Michael Lofton). Daily phone calls from any creditor (s) or a creditor's representatives, will not resolve or result in any debt being paid by Michael L. Lofton to any creditor.

    I believe in paying my bills. However, unless the DWP, the City of Los Angeles, and the County of Los Angeles, specifically the Superior Court of the County of Los Angeles, and the elected officials who are sworn under oath to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law when government violates the rights of any law abiding citizen, namely the Constitutional and property rights of Michael L. Lofton, which is documented by Los Angeles Superior Court Case BC385899, Los Angeles City Attorney Claim C14-1466, and/or related cases, respects my Constitutional and property rights there is no chance that any creditor will receive the debt due.

    Paying any debt owed to any creditor, is only possible when the City of Los Angeles, the DWP, the Los Angeles Superior Court, and the appropriate elected officials competently (as mandated by the Constitution, the Oath of Office, the LA County Charter, the Los Angeles City Charter and respect the rule law) serve all U.S. citizens, U.S. born descendants of slavery being inclusive, namely Michael L. Lofton et al, in this instance.

    Verbal Testimony before the LA City Council, August 16, 2013

    I, Michael L. Lofton testified at this public meeting.

    Michael. " I'm one of the former LADWP employees that you guys have been talking about and I'm not getting my retirement...and I'm really upset because this is supposed to be a country of law and not men...And the problem I have, especially with Herb Wesson, My Mom went to his office to petition her elected official regarding my retirement benefits not being issued and Herb Wesson had my Mom arrested for trespass. And that is not supposed to happen in the great United States of America. I'm giving Herb Wesson a chance to redeem himself because that was wrong. I have a clean record, no criminal history. Water and Power came to my house, twice. I gave it a month because I had a generator running. I climbed the pole, reconnected, myself, because you can't live in this country without money. In addition to that, Water and Power deprived me of other earned income that I have, which is savings and that caused me to max out my credit card. ...I expect an apology from Water and Power, a formal apology. In addition to that I expect to have all of my retirement benefits restored that I have earned...and the Mayor is aware of this."
