This refutes the argument of those who maintain that Vattel doesn’t amount to anything. It is woven into SCOTUS precedent.

FROM THE ARTICLE:

"Finally it should be noted, that to define a term is to indicate the category or class of things which it signifies. In this sense, the Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term 'natural born citizen' to any other category than 'those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof'."

What’s interesting to me is the heavy reliance on the foreign Vattel by the SCOTUS when only recently Americans were screeching about the Supreme Court justices even acknowledging the merest whiffs of foreign law.

Please show us where exactly Vattel speaks of "logical answers."
Unless it is explicit quoted, it didn't happen.

No, it's not. Three of those cases do not deal with the question of natural-born citizenship and the fourth doesn't say what the author thinks it says.
