"The proposition that treaties can increase the power of Congress is inconsistent with the text of the Treaty Clause, the Necessary and Proper Clause, and the Tenth Amendment. "

And common sense.

Interesting.

When I was in practice the Fed Cir also seemed to get overruled quite a bit. What is it about that Court?

That one and the 9th Circuit, which is the most overturned.
