Jeff Lichter, a very active member of the Surprise, AZ Tea Party, is showing improvement after a long hospitalization

(Nov. 11, 2014) — Surprise, AZ Tea Party member and eligibility activist Jeff Lichter is showing more encouraging signs, according to a friend.

Along with several others, Lichter met with Donald Trump in early April 2011 after Trump publicly called upon Barack Hussein Obama to release his “long-form” birth certificate to show that he was born in the United States and presumably eligible to serve as president and commander-in-chief.  Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the chief executive of the nation to be a “natural born Citizen.”

Last February, Lichter shared his recollections of the meeting with Trump with The Post & Email, recalling that Trump had predicted that the White House would release a forgery of a birth certificate in response to the public pressure he had placed on Obama at the time.

Trump’s attorney, Michael D. Cohen, was present at the meeting.  On Tuesday, The Post & Email wrote to Cohen on a related matter.

Published reports that Obama was born in Indonesia or Kenya conflicted with his claimed birth in Honolulu, HI on August 4, 1961.  No hospital has confirmed Obama’s birth there or anywhere else in the world.

Lichter had responded to Trump’s request to assemble and send him information on the meaning of the Article II requirement of “natural born Citizen” for the President of the United States.  Lichter related to The Post & Email that he mailed a packet of what he believed were the best materials available, including the work of Atty. Mario Apuzzo and others, but that he never heard from Trump again.

On Monday, Trump told the co-anchors of Fox & Friends that “Obama” is using a name not given to him at birth; that name, Trump said, was “Barry Soetoro.”  Trump was not asked, nor did he divulge, how he arrived at that conclusion.

Obama’s life story states that after divorcing his father, Barack Hussein Obama, his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, married an Indonesian man named Lolo Soetoro.  Many have speculated that Soetoro adopted the boy while he was in Indonesia attending school. It is unknown if any of Obama’s public life story is accurate, as he and his wife have made public statements which conflict with his official biography.

Since 2007, anyone questioning Obama’s background, biographical narrative or veracity has been ridiculed, harassed, spied upon, and labeled a “racist” by sycophants supportive of Obama’s ideology.

In September 2011, members of the Surprise Tea Party approached Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as his constituents, asking for an investigation into the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website on April 27 of that year in response to Trump’s demands.  Within 24 hours, the image was denounced as a forgery by several graphics and computer experts, and the Tea Partiers feared their votes in the upcoming presidential election would be disenfranchised.

Arpaio agreed to have his Cold Case Posse, which works at no expense to taxpayers, investigate the image.  To their surprise, the five-member posse found that the image could not be verified as having originated with a paper document.

On March 1, 2012, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Arpaio held a press conference in which they declared that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”

The Post & Email and Lichter have had several conversations since that time as the posse’s investigation has continued.

In September, Lichter suffered complications from surgery and was placed on a ventilator.  The Post & Email has received a report that he is no longer using the ventilator after having been moved to a new facility within the last ten days.

On Tuesday, the friend reported, “A little bit of good news. Today he smiled and moved his feet when asked by the doctor. He nodded yes when XXXXXX ask him if he wanted to see XXXXXX who is planning to fly in soon from XXXX. He also nodded yes when she asked him if he wanted to see his dog.”

Lichter is a native of New York but retired some years ago to the warmer Arizona climate.  During our February interview about his meeting with Trump nearly three years before, Lichter related that he was watching a ball game while our local temperature was in the 20s and snow and ice covered the ground.
