Let me give you a recent example. The United States Supreme Court is hearing a case in which, if upheld by the Court, the Congress of the
States will be authorized to pass
legislation that is inconsistent with the United States Constitution, as long
as the legislation is an extension of the treaty power.

The husband of Carol A. Bond of
impregnated Myrlinda Haynes.
Mrs. Bond told Haynes, “I am going to make your life a living hell.” Federal
postal inspectors videotaped Mrs. Bond stealing mail and putting poison in the
muffler of Haynes’s car.Bond was indicted for stealing mail and for violation
of the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act of 1998. Her appeal
argued that applying the chemical weapons treaty to her violated the Tenth
Amendment. The Court of Appeals found Bond lacked standing to make a Tenth
Amendment claim. Lansdale, Pennsylvania
