It has absolutely everything to do with it, unless of course, you think that you know of some law that trumps the US Constitution and it's equally binding treaties. whistle
Timbo, your factoids are based on false assumptions. Treaties are not equally binding and are not legally binding unless passed by Congress as ratified by the US Senate. They are merely an Act of Congress and every act of Congress super cedes every prior act of Congress. Your comprehension of the English language eludes me, as there is no apostrophe in it's, unless used as a conjunction of it is. That can be a problem when teaching yourself how to read.

Read and Learn:

Article VI states that, along with the U.S. Constitution and federal law, ratified treaties 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. Treaties trump state law.
ARTICLE VI
All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

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, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

Breaking down your selected paragraph:

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,

anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

ALL of the above constitute the Supreme Law of the Land, which includes any laws passed by Congress.

You DO know what the word AND means, such as in the Carcieri case.

I agree, treaties trump state law which does not change what I already pointed out that you replied to.
