(Kalispell,MT)  With the Western United States being overrun by federal tyranny, one of the methods that is used by perpetrators to gain additional control is the use of treaties.  It has been reported of late that a treaty is the “supreme law of the land,” even taking precedence over the US Constitution.  But, is that really true?  Who better to ask that question than two bonafied treaty experts, Elain Willman and Lawrence Kogan, Esq.?  I was delighted when they both agreed to stop by the NorthWest Liberty News studios in Kalispell, Montana to enlighten us on the very important distinction between a treaty and the US Constitution.  Please take time to view the brief video below as Elaine and Larry drill down to the real truth.

  1. Treaties and the Constitution
    One of the most outlandish ploys being used to break down our Constitutional government is the promotion of the false notion that treaties ,when confirmed by the Senate , are more powerful then the Constitution, and can actually override our national charter in both foreign and domestic matters. Of course, this notion is ridiculous. America’s founders would never have worked so wisely to limit and contain government powers and then hold American freedom hostage to some to some future unwritten treaty with a foreign power. Let’s take a look at the second paragraph in Article V1 and consider its meaning: This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance there-of and all treaties made or which shall be made, ,under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and judges in every state shall be bound thereby , any thing in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

    The clause, ‘supreme law of the land” does not mean that a treaty is somehow superior to the Constitution; it means that treaties made in pursuance of ( in conformance with ) the U.S. Constitution are the only U.S. treaties.

    Almost as if he were responding to modern schemers who view treaties as a method of overriding the Constitution , James Madison stated :
    ” I do not conceive that { treaty- making } power is given to the President and the Senate to dismantle the empire, or to alienate any great , essential right. I do not think the whole legislative authority have this power. The exercise of the power must be consistent with the object of the
    delegation”

    That is ,the treaty power must be consistent with the government’s delegated powers.

    Madison further said of the treaty clause : “Here the supremacy of a treaty is contrasted with the supremacy of the laws of the States. It cannot otherwise be supreme.” And Alexander Hamilton said, ” A treaty cannot be made which alters the Constitution of the country, or which infringes any express exceptions to the power of the Constitution of the United States.”
