The Court in Minor determined that before it could decide the issue of whether the petitioner (who was an adult White woman) had any Federal right to vote based on the 14th Amendment, it first had to decide whether or not she was a citizen, and if so on what basis? The Court held that the petitioner was in fact a US citizen, and had been such from birth, before the ratification of the 14th Amendment. The reasoning the Court used to reach that holding is actually central to the question of the Supreme Court's definition of "natural born citizen." AND...that definition is pivotal regarding obama's legitimacy to hold the office of POTUS...reason why? Re-read above.
Obviously obama was not vetted properly and by his own admitted parentage, he's ineligible to legally hold the office of POTUS. Minor vs. Hapersett used the 14th Amendment as the basis for its second principal holding concerning the right to vote, but not for its first principal holding concerning whether or not the petitioner was a US citizen (court decisions can involve multiple holdings, which are the precedent-setting decisions the court makes in order to decide the legal and/or factual issues before the court in a particular case.)
US citizens, even if born in the US to parents who were both US citizens, who have any foreign citizenship, no matter when or how acquired, are not eligible to be President. This issue has nothing to do with race or ethnicity. It's a question of loyalty and avoidance of even the appearance of conflict of interest. Nothing more, and nothing less. The only explicit definition of "natural born citizen" in the historical record, that was provided by one of the Founders, defines it as meaning a person born in the country to citizen parents. No testimony from any other Founder or delegate of the Constitutional Convention exists that claims any other definition.
Based on the law and SCOTUS definition of natural born citizen, obama is not legally eligible to hold the office of POTUS though. Based on Minor vs. Hapersett, 88 U.S. 162, the Supreme Court defined "natural born citizens" as "all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens." "Natural born citizen" is defined as the purest form of citizenship, requiring both jus soli ("law of the soil") citizenship and jus sanguinis ("law of the blood") citizenship—with BOTH parents being citizens.
As American, we may be at odds with each other because of this administration and POTUS, but we still don't take kindly to having some foreign toad try to interject his influence and opinion into our affairs. You've certainly shown us what a pompous, arrogant and ignorant a$$ you are piers, now crawl back under the rock from whence you came.
Nah...that takes a riot...not mouth open drooling. (GAG)

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced - a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level." - excerpt, UN Agenda 21

47 is in regard to UN AGENDA 21. If you haven't heard of it or read it, I suggest you do. Everyone should be aware of this. Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced — a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.

46. Under the guise of providing free health care for the poor, seize control of the entire national health care apparatus including the health insurance industry. Under the guise of ‘fairness’, institute price controls and rationing, and control the behavior of all citizens through regulation of their access to health care. 47. Under the guise of protecting the planet and the environment from pollution and “climate change”, establish massive new federal bureaucracies to regulate all industrial and personal activities. Use these regulations to reward political friends and punish political enemies.
