This treaty if signed would have the force of law UNTIL the SENATE affirmativly (sic) voted it down.

NONSENSE!

The Constitution provides that the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur"

"provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur"

Key word here is present. Full 2/3 is not required.
