During the current on-going battle over Obama/Soetoro's usurpation of the office of the president and Americans trying to understand the difference between U.S. citizen and 'natural born citizen' as required by the U.S. Constitution, John McCain's name continues to be used as an example of a natural born citizen. But, is it true?
The chicanery that went on back in 2008 was for a reason, because as we know, nothing that goes on in the District of Criminals isn't well thought out by the evil doers.
Please note the dates of importance: McCain was born in 1936. Johnny boy claims he was born in a military hospital that wasn't even authorized until 1941. Act surprised. McCain lied and the lackeys in the "mainstream" media and cable network anchors were either too lazy to do serious research or politically biased to expose the truth. Again.
Clinton, Obama Sponsor McCain Citizenship Bill - 2008
"A candidate must be at least 35 years old, a resident of the United States for at least 14 years, and must be a "natural-born citizen." McCain qualifies on all three; but some commentators have questioned whether he can be considered to have been natural-born because he was born on a U.S. Navy base in the Panama Canal Zone."
McCain was born in Colon Hospital in Panama, which is not on an American military base.
"John McCain was born on August 29, 1936 at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone,"
"John Sidney McCain III was born on August 29, 1936, at Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, the second of three children born to naval officer John S. McCain Jr. and his wife, Roberta. At the time of his birth, the McCain family was stationed in the Panama Canal Zone, under American control."
EXECUTIVE ORDER 8981
NAVY HOSPITAL AREA, COCO SOLO, CANAL ZONE
December 17, 1941
"By virtue of the authority vested in me by section 5 of title 2 of the Canal Zone Code, approved June 19, 1934, and as President of the United States, it is ordered as follows:
"SECTION 1. Setting apart of reservation; boundaries. The following- described area of land in the Canal Zone is hereby reserved and set apart as, and assigned to the uses and purposes of, a naval reservation, which shall be known as Navy Hospital Area, Coco Solo, and which shall be under the control and jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Navy, subject to the provisions of section 2 of this order:" (Rest at link)

Bases in South America and the Caribbean Area, Including Bermuda
Johnny boy was born long before the military hospital he claims as his birth facility was built, but then, he's a pathological liar just like Soetoro.
McCain was the designated loser for 2008. Best to make sure your surrogate puppet gets on the ballot.
When attorney Leo Donofrio filed the first lawsuit in New Jersey in 2008, it was to keep McCain, Obama and Nicaraguan born Roger Colera, presidential candidate for the Socialist Workers Party, off the ballot.
Colera was removed from the ballot because he was obviously foreign born; he was in the country as a legal alien.
During my research at the time, I found this web site and cross checked every thing in it.
The Panmanchurian Candidate: McCain INELIGIBLE
THE PANAMANCHURIAN CANDIDATE:
Why John McCain is INELIGIBLE to be President of the United States
"The question has been raised of the citizenship on John McCain in terms of his eligibility to be President. Please follow this VERY closely, as it is lengthy, but it shows that he is NOT eligible to be President; therefore he should be disqualified, decertified, and removed from all present and future Presidential ballots. His past results should be disallowed as well and all of his committed delegates unbound. The usual disclaimer of “I am not lawyer; this is not legal advice and should not be taken as such, etc.” applies. Don't just take this document’s word for it: verify these facts. Resource citations are at the end.
"Please note that all references to "citizen" and "citizenship" refer to United States citizens and United States citizenship, respectively.
"To properly answer this eligibility question, several areas need to be examined: what the Constitution says on the issue, what the federal law says on the issue, what the federal regulatory policy is on the issue, and the legal status of John McCain’s place of birth. All of this, taken together, will determine what makes him eligible to be President, or not."
Rest at link. It is very detailed and took quite a bit of time to look up all the codes. I believe the author is correct and so was Leo to include McCain in his lawsuit to keep him off the ballot in 2008.
Leo filed an emergency application for stay. In it, he explains in specific language why McCain is not eligible to run for president. If you don't have time to read all of it, the legal analysis about McCain beings on page 14:
There is much hoopla going on regarding Sen. Marco Rubio as either a presidential candidate (he says he won't run) or VP candidate. Rubio is another band aid senator, but that aside, he's also ineligible to be president or VP. I believe you will come to the same conclusion after reading the legal analysis (Panamanchurian Candidate) and Leo's filing.
Obama’s ineligibility: Marco Rubio can't be President or Vice President
"Marco Rubio was born in the US, which makes him a US citizen. His parents were not US citizens at the time of his birth. Therefore, Marco Rubio is not a natural born citizen and not eligible for the office of President or Vice President.
"Although not defined in the Constitution, Article II, Section I, Clause 5 specifically requires, not just citizenship, but natural born citizenship.
"The Supreme Court binding precedent in Minor vs. Happersett (1874) provides the Constitutional definition of natural born citizenship."
