Simple Process of Logic:
Since the Constitution was "Ordained" / Chartered by "WE THE PEOPLE"
from which All Government Powers are Derived, including the Power by
which the Executive and with two thirds of the Senators present
concur, to make treaties, The Constitution is primary i.e. holds
precedence / superiority.
Since a Treaty is essentially "law" and Any Law which is repugnant
to the Constitution is Null and Void at its inception, Article VI
paragraph 2 was the "expressed" safegaurd that all subsequent Laws
and / or treaties must be made in Pursuance thereof lest either the
Legislature, or the Executive with the Senate attempt to circumvent
the Constitution by federal law and / or treaty.
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your
getting, Get understanding. Proverbs 4:7

Supreme Court has held that treaties must be in conformity with the
Constitution. The only authority the makers of treaties have comes
from the Constitution.
