To me, this means that you cannot amend the Constitution so that the Constitution is no longer the supreme law of the land, because that amendment would be a "thing in the Constitution" that would be in conflict with this section.
I think that phrase is best understood as meaning anything in the State constitutions.

You know, now that I reread that with different emphasis I can see your point.
I was reading that as "any (Thing in the Constitution) or (Laws of any State) to the Contrary notwithstanding" when I should have been reading it as "any Thing in the ((Constitution or Laws) of any State) to the Contrary notwithstanding."
This changes everything.
