Father of the 14th Amendment Defined "Natural-Born Citizen"

This article is not about Obama's birth certificate. Instead, the attorney writing this article presents legal evidence that even though the Fourteenth Amendment seemingly bestows general citizenship to children born on U.S. soil, it does not confer natural-born citizenship status to children born of one or two foreign parents. Donofrio presents evidence in remarks made by Rep. Bingham (OH). Bingham is considered the father of the Fourteenth Amendment. The result of these findings is proof beyond a shadow of a doubt that Barack Obama is ineligible to serve as President because his father was a British citizen, which means Obama Jr. inherited dual citizenship status when he was born. Dual citizenship does not meet Bingham's definition of a natural born citizen.

United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Hugo Black, in a concurring opinion in Duncan v. Louisiana, 391 U.S. 145 (1968), emphasizes his reliance upon the statements made by Representative Bingham and Senator Howard in Congress which pertain to the drafting and adoption of the 14th Amendment.  Justice Black stated that “it is far wiser to rely on” the words of Bingham and Howard when analyzing the 14th Amendment.

This is crucial to understanding that Obama is not eligible to be President as it provides the strongest Supreme Court statement – post Wong Kim Ark – indicating that the current occupant of the White House is not in legal possession of the office of President.
Here is the relevant statement by Justice Black:
