Ian Millhiser is a liar. He continually repeats claims such as this: The Constitution provides that duly enacted federal laws “shall be the supreme law of the land” — a provision known as the “Supremacy Clause”
FACT: Only those federal laws made in PURSUANCE OF THE CONSTITUTION, are supreme under Article VI, the “supremacy clause.”
FICTION: Millhiser wants you to believe that anything “duly-passed” by Congress is supreme. Just because something is passed according to Congressional procedure doesn’t mean that the new law is automatically constitutional. Under the proper view of the Constitution, very little of what they pass is.
