It is with deepest sorrow that I make this announcement. The nation has lost a great constitutional scholar, attorney, and patriot – especially in regards to his efforts to support and defend Article II Section 1 Clause 5, the presidential eligibility clause. He was a giant in that field of constitutional law.  I have also lost a good friend.

If you knew Mario, and/or would like to share your thoughts, please feel free to use the comments link.

  1. Mario’s passing is a devastating loss to those who revere the U.S. Constitution, particularly Article II, Section 1, clause 5 dealing with presidential eligibility. He had a brilliant legal mind, was a pleasure to interview, and worked incessantly to defend our founding documents and the rights they endow us. His place in history is solidified as an ardent Article II patriot.

  2. From Devvy Kidd:

    “Mario was one of America’s warriors who will be missed but not forgotten. Rest in peace and condolences to your family and friends.”

  3. It grieves me deeply upon the hearing of the passing of attorney Mario Apuzzo.

    I never got to meet Mr. Apuzzo in person but over a span of ten years I came to admire the man’s brilliant mind, unwavering dedication to justice, and his unbounded love of country.

    It was in the early days of what started out as a curiosity concerning the 2007 then-candidate Barak Obama’s pursuit of the presidency that I became involved with a group of volunteers who wanted to know more about Obama’s Arizona Candidate Nomination Paper, as to whether Obama was a Natural Born Citizen – or not.

    Through a loose association of contacts on the internet I was introduced to Mr. Apuzzo, who at the time was looking for volunteers to assist him in doing research. I did not know any of the other researchers Mr. Apuzzo had grouped together, and I think he knew the value in protecting us from the forces he was to face, if indeed it turned out that the candidate-Obama was in fact not eligible for the presidency.

    It wasn’t long before Mr. Apuzzo began to acquire quite a bit of ancillary information: the relationship between O and Bill Ayers, O’s 1964 family divorce papers, O’s childhood overseas life, the mysteriously unsolved murder of Lt. Quarles Harris, mandamus denials and petition-failure-attempts from various state courts, … just to name a very few strange and bizarre events. But I was not to be involved in any of these.

    Mr. Apuzzo assigned me to find historical resources as to why the Naturalization Act of 1790 was repealed and replaced by the Naturalization Act of 1795. This was not very exciting work – at first. But I came to see the wisdom of it.

    Mr. Apuzzo wanted a deep dive into the minds of the Founders: What were they thinking? What made the 1790 law problematic? How did the 1795 law correct the 1790’s weaknesses?

    I found the answers in letters from Madison to Jefferson, docketed by Jefferson on January 20, 1794, and Mr. Apuzzo was very happy.

    The next assignment came some time later but was very difficult: Mr. Apuzzo wanted to know the history of the American colonial administration of the Hawaiian islands from the end of the 19th century, as it pertained to the validation of births and birth certificates across the islands.

    This was very difficult since in most of the latter 19th century birth reports and records were transported by word-of-mouth or informal notifications, by ship or canoe, between the islands back to Honolulu. Only by April of 1911 did Act 96 provide for the standardized issuance of Hawaiian birth certificates. Mr. Apuzzo thought it important to know the evolution of the terms “Certification of Live Birth,” “Certificate of Live Birth,” “Certificate of Delayed Birth,” and “Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.” And only the history of the Hawaiian territory could provide the information.

    This is all to say: Mr. Apuzzo was dedicated to the factual assemblage of the historical, legal, and social elements that defined the issue, and from those elements distilled the vitally important relevancies of law that brought a clear focus on the Eligibility Clause.

    Anyone who has read any of his arguments before a court or drilled into his many articles on the Eligibility Clause can see the flawless precision of his brilliant mind.

    In my view, for such men there is a special place of honor at the table of our Founding Fathers in heaven; and not for his efforts, but for his love of this country that he toiled, was mocked, and paid the price of a devotee of truth.

    Rest in Peace, my friend. It was an honor to work with you. I pray you hear the words we all long to hear: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

  4. From William Baer:

    “I knew Mario was struggling for the past several weeks, but I am still stunned to hear of his passing. He was a fellow “officer of the court”. But much more so, he was an officer of the truth. He took on what no other attorney would touch, and for this, and for “the record”, we are grateful. Mario loved what this country was supposed to be, and tried his best to preserve, protect, and defend it. To his family: I am sorry. ”

  5. From Susan Daniels:

    “We have lost a good man and a great patriot. He fought the good fight and now he deserves to rest. God bless him and bring solace to his family.”

  6. America has suffered a great loss with the death of Mario Apuzzo, Attorney at Law. Mario was faithful to his Oath of Office, ‘to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic’. He never wavered from that mission and pursued his passion for the practice of law with integrity, dignity and purpose. While foreign born, Mario had a deeper understanding and respect for the Constitution of the United States, than many of his American born colleagues. Mario’s advanced education, here and abroad, served him well in the Courtroom as, in life. During the course of my career, it was my distinct honor and privilege to work with Mario and to experience his legal genius. May he rest in peace knowing he left no stone unturned in his pursuit of truth and justice and service to His Savior.

  7. From Helen Tansey:

    “Losing Mario is a true tragedy. His mind. His knowledge. His experience. All of it is a huge, huge loss.
    This news so saddens me, greatly. Thank you for introducing him to all of us in the Article II community/movement.
    My life was enriched by his presence. I will be keeping his family and you and Kevin in my prayers.
    May God be with you, always, Helen “

  8. From Linda Andzulis:

    “Thoughts and prayers are with the Apuzzo family. 🙏❤🙏 Attorney Apuzzo fought the good fight, finished the race, kept the faith, and helped so many along the way. A glorious crown of righteousness awaits.”

  9. Mario and I were among a handful of lawyers engaged against the unlawful presidency of a certain Barak Obama – who, as we all know, has yet to produce evidence of American citizenship. Mario was a gentle but confident warrior who pushed against this machine to a greater level than all of us – reaching the completely corrupted Court of Appeals where they sought to destroy him financially for even raising the argument. He fought back with a magnificent briefing that even caused those crooks to relent. Mario was one of the great warriors who worked tirelessly to preserve the constitutional republic and to hopefully prevent the fiasco we now find ourselves in. Great lawyer, Great Patriot, Great Man.

  10. While I had no association with Mario Apuzzo I did closely follow the work he was doing regarding the illegal presence of Barrack Obama in the White House. I deeply admired Mr. Apuzzo’s learned skills. Had he not been silenced from above I believe that ultimately he would have produced enough evidence to have DEPORTED Obama back to Kenya. I end this with a statement from Obama’s mouth…”.I am the first American president to have come from Kenya”. Thease were his words in a speech he gave at Kogele Kenya.
