“STARTING TO GET FRUSTRATED”
by Sharon Rondeau
Lichter has been hospitalized at Kindred Hospital, a long-term, acute care facility in Peoria, AZ for the last several weeks after suffering complications from scheduled surgery in another facility.
Lichter was one of an original group of Surprise, AZ Tea Party members who approached Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to request an investigation into the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 which was soon after declared a forgery by several computer experts.
The White House appeared to have released the image in response to calls from real estate mogul and potential presidential contender Donald Trump, with whom Lichter and several other Arizonans met on April 8 of that year in Trump’s New York office. Lichter recalled to The Post & Email in a February 2014 interview that Trump had predicted that a forgery would be released without divulging his sources.
After returning to Arizona, Lichter gathered documentation on the meaning of the Article II, Section 1, clause 5 constitutional term “natural born Citizen” and sent the packet to Trump’s office. He told The Post & Email that he did not receive a response.
Arpaio agreed to have the Cold Case Posse associated with his office examine the image to put his constituents’ fears to rest that their votes would be disenfranchised in the upcoming 2012 presidential election in the event that the image were fraudulent.
The White House had said that the image was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s birth certificate obtained from the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) several days before it was posted. After 72 hours, the posse had determined that the image could not have begun with a paper document.
On March 1, 2012, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Arpaio held a press conference to reveal that the investigation had concluded that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”
A second press conference with additional details was given on July 17, 2012 in which Arpaio called upon Congress to launch its own investigation into the forgery posted, as Zullo said, “with the intent to deceive.”
Veteran journalist of Watergate fame Bob Woodward also felt threatened over his reporting of the effects of sequestration which took effect early last year.
Emails released under court order to Judicial Watch reveal that putative and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder was counseled on how to attempt to hide the fact that he knew about Operation Fast & Furious long before he said he did when he testified to Congress and that a former Holder press aide indicated that she would take steps to silence then-CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.
Obama has not been truthful about his signature law, Obamacare; the Benghazi terrorist attack; his intentions to scale back executive authority in response to President George W. Bush’s alleged overreach; and his relationship to William Ayers, a former domestic terrorist whose activities killed his former girlfriend, Diana Oughton and possibly a San Francisco police officer in 1970. Ayers and his wife became college professors, and Ayers and Obama served on the Board of the Woods Foundation while living in the same “neighborhood.”
Ayers launched Obama’s political career in his living room in 1995.
Obama said on Thursday that he was not changing existing federal law by announcing “executive actions” to defer deportations of illegal aliens under certain conditions. On Tuesday, in attempting to convince a Chicago audience that his actions were significant steps toward immigration reform, he claimed that he had taken “an action to change the law.”
In Obama’s America, Tea Party members, smaller-government advocates, religious groups, Second Amendment supporters, constitutional scholars, and many military veterans are called “potential domestic terrorists.”
Arpaio has stated in interviews over the past six months that he may release more information gleaned from the posse’s original probe and his own investigation launched as a corollary at an undisclosed time.
On November 17, Arpaio visited Lichter at the hospital. The Post & Email has been told that Zullo was also present at the time. On November 15, a get-well-card campaign was launched inviting members of the public to send greetings to Lichter en masse during his convalescence.
Lichter had told The Post & Email that he had been a swimming coach while employed as a school teacher in New York City, and the acquaintance noted during a recent conversation that Lichter was athletic up to the time he underwent surgery, including coaching a children’s baseball team.
