The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 6
Paragraph 2

This constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; 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 the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, any thing in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;

This provision is not as comprehensive as it sounds. The clause "under the Authority of the United States" ties the whole paragraph back to what We, the People, have authorized and empowered our Government to do on our behalf. The Federal Government can only pass laws pertaining to the powers that We the People have granted. Treaties, provided they do not violate God's Laws, our Common Laws, and the authority granted in this Constitution, will of necessity be the law of the land so that the judicial system established under the provisions of this Constitution has the ability to deal with such Treaties.

and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

This is a not a problem because the Constitution does not grant any power or authority over the Sovereign People, and, if anyone were to try to gain control of the People through a perverted Treaty, We the People still have our unalienable rights to immediately step forward and quash the Treaty.

This Constitution is made for the sole purpose of creating a government to secure our God given unalienable rights, any actions by our public servants toward anything else is of necessity, null and void, ab initio - from the beginning. The Authority of the united States, does not extend to any violation, or infringement of our unalienable rights. Our public servants in our Federal Government and in every State Government are specifically bound thereby, any thing in any Treaty to the Contrary notwithstanding.
