United States’ Senate Outlaws War in 1928 – Senate Ratifies – It is Still the Law of the Land

The Constitution of the United States of America declares a treaty is the highest law of the land.  The vote was 85 to 1.  The Senate ratified it.  It is on the State Department’s website.

In 1928 under the Kellogg-Briand Pact over 60 nations outlawed war.  In this interview, David Swanson discusses his book about the 1928 Kellogg-Briand Pact and how it makes current wars illegal .  Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as the Supremacy Clause, establishes the U.S. Constitution, U.S. Treaties, and Federal Statutes as “the supreme law of the land.”
