Trump is a false prophet if all he does is ** talk ** of draining swamp or building wall. Republican landslide will give him carte blanche for years. Going to look into it, is he?

Does Treaty Law supersede the Constitution? While this notion that Treaty Law supersedes the constitution seems counter-intuitive to the layman, many legal scholars seem to agree that treaties are the supreme law of the land; and therefore, it follows that treaties supersede the constitution. Let’s take a closer look at the wording and intent of the authors of the “Supremacy Clause”. Does it logically follow that supremacy implies non-constraint?

This is why you have to watch the UN bullshit very carefully. If we sign into something non-constitutional the Supreme Court could rule in favor and simply ignore that section of the constitution for as long as we are in the agreement.

That looks like the plan: sign treaty with UN banning guns/free speech or both. Take it to loaded Supreme Court for rubber stamp.
