California woman fighting traffic code

Many of you probably know that I "don't enjoy the luxury of a drivers license". What you may not realize is that I am merely one of thousands of people who refuse to ask for permission to exercise our right to travel. I recently spoke to a woman from San Luis Obispo (where I used to live) who has continued to fight this issue in the California courts. The state confiscated her car for over a year, and then offered to return her property is she would sign away her right to sue the state. Instead, she has found an attorney from Colorado who is willing to handle her case pro-bono if she can find a California attorney willing to "sponsor" the guy from Colorado. I don't understand all those details, but here is the letter I invited her to write about her situation.


Thank you very much for being supportive of my case. As you’ve said we all have to draw our line in the sand sometime.

On January 6, 2009 I was traveling through San Luis Obispo in my private automobile which did not have the fees for my state protection service paid on it. Apparently and unknown to me, in California if you do not pay your registration for an excess of six months they can tow your automobile according to their statutes. In my glove compartment I carry a document known as "Warning Actual Notice" which clearly outlines the Supreme Court decisions I rely on protecting me against such government intrusion upon my freedom. I gave this document along with a copy of the Constitution that is printed by the Fully Informed Jury Association to the police officer who stopped me. He called a supervisor and they decided to tow my automobile. I actually read them the 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution right out the window of my car and demanded a jury trial before they took my property. They just ignored them.

Immediately upon arriving home I wrote a letter to the City Attorney and explained in detail what took place and demanded my property returned to me or I might bring suit against the City. The City Attorney invited me to sue them. I wrote a letter addressed to every person who had the authority to return my automobile to me, and they all were ignored. So I filed a lawsuit against the City, the Supervising Officer, the Tow Company, and the owner of the Tow Company.

It has been an ugly war that has raged on now for over 15 months and I have done a decent job of defending myself. They really have tried to paperwork me to death and it has been hard to keep up with. Demurrers were heard in December and the City’s demurrer was denied. The Tow Company was released, and I have filed an appeal of that decision. During the case we have come to find out that the statute they tow your automobile under has no judicial oversight whatsoever. You are not cited for the offense and you never have the opportunity to have the tow reviewed by a judge. That is an unconstitutional "Bill of Attainder". Thousand of people lose their cars every year because of this statute. We need to get it overturned.

Luckily for me I was able to find an attorney who is a Patriot and when he heard about my case he immediately wanted to help. Gary Fielder, from Denver, Colorado, is the attorney who refused to go through the body scanner at the Courthouse in Denver and they got it all on video. At this point we need another attorney who is registered with the California Bar Association to sponsor him into the state so he can represent me at the trial. If any of your readers can help us, or know of anyone who would, I would be very grateful for the help. Finding an attorney to help is turning out to be quite a challenge.

Well, Michael, thank you again for your encouragement. Please take care of yourself and if you ever doubt that you are making a difference, don’t. I am proof positive that you are changing people’s hearts!

Fourth amendment

I find this a fascinating case for several reasons.  First, my husband's car was towed by the Costa Mesa, CA police dept. illegaly because they said his license was suspended.  They were wrong.  Their system that checks DMV records was wrong.  His license was newly issued and we found out from the DMV that the information this was based on was 10 years old and had been resolved and his license restored almost as many years ago.  It took us 10 days to get all the paperwork from out of state to PROVE HE WAS INNOCENT!  We aren't even trying to drive around without paying all the fees and extortion money and we got screwed!  I paid over 900.00 in impound fees to get his car back and the police dept. could have waived the fees but didn't.  We have never received a remedy and this was 2 years ago.
The second reason I am interested in this case is because I am interested in ending this illegal, 4th amemdment right violating practice of towing people's cars for victimless crimes.  It is a total violation of the Constitution!  No due process, no right to bring evidence or defend yourself and no remedy when you prove you are innocent!  Many people loose their cars altogether because they cannot aford to pay the impound fees.  This is just tragic!  It really devistates the most vulnerable in our society.
The third reason I'm interested in this case is because my home town is San Luis Obispo.
And, finally, I am familiar with the Lawyer from Colorado Mr. Fielder from his work with We Are Change, Colorado and I have the greatest respect for him.   Michael, please post the outcome of this case or some updates as I am hoping this case could create the potential for us end the unconstitutional practice of towing people's cars for good.

Secured Party Creditor class

If you really want to exercise your right to travel freely, along with myriads of other freedoms, I suggest you take a 'Secured Party Creditor Class'. I took this class yesterday in Hattiesburg, MS and was amazed at the information provided in learning how to restore our rights.  Please contact me if you would like contact info as they can help you file the documents you need to beat them at their own game and to enjoy your God-given rights.

There is a way out of this nonsense by emailing Bill Thornton  He is the guru on common law and is helping many people use common law to w/regard to such gross violations as this case or taxes, or any other issues that has to do w/Statutory law.   Per Bill, Common Law is at the top of the law tier, then statutory law, then regulations, then codes, etc.  The significant and most prolific thing about common law is that it cannot be challenged by the state or federal supreme court of the land, once it has been declared as standing.   That is how powerful it is.  Bill will help you get your car back, and damages that the state of CA has inflicted upon you.  Please update us on how things progress.  Good luck!

Yes, common law is at the top of tier.  And, a decision out of a common law court of record may not be reviewed in any court.  The remaining hierarchy is Constitution, statutes, codes, regulations, rules.  Despite rumors, I don't help people get their cars back.  But, you can get a lot of great information at  And, you can contact me at if you have any questions about that website.
