    If an affair threatens national security then how doesn't illegal immigrants, a president & other leaders breaking the law or doing something that harms America not a threat and then not scrutinized by CNN & other news channels. Bring back integrity & stand up to those who break the laws of this Great Country. It isn't about race. It is about what saving our country & it's Constitution & our rights. Obama has led us down a Socialist road where he has near nullified our constitution & rights with executive orders. He maybe, be a citizen of America by his mom but he isn't eligible for presidency because both his parents are not american citizens. Article II of our Constitution has a lot to say about how a would-be President is born. "Natural born Citizen" status requires not only birth on U.S. soil but also birth to parents who are both U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization. This unity of jus soli (soil) and jus sanguinis (descent) in the child at the time of birth assures that the child is born with sole allegiance (obligation of fidelity and obedience to government in consideration for protection that government gives (U.S. v. Kuhn, 49 F.Supp.407, 414 (D.C.N.Y)) and loyalty to the United States and that no other nation can lay any claim to the child's (later an adult) allegiance and loyalty. Indeed, under such birth circumstances, no other nation can legally or morally demand any military or political obligations from that person. The child, as he/she grows, will also have a better chance of not psychologically struggling with conflicted allegiance and loyalty to any other nation Prayers
