    No. Nothing can supersede the Constitution. A treaty can supercede other laws, though.

    No. The only way to ignore the constitution officially would be to declare martial law. The last time a national martial law was declared was in the 1860s. However, martial law has been declared in certain regions where natural disasters have occurred and they were afraid that crime would soar (e.g. martial law in NKY/Cincy during the 1997 flood, when they placed the National Guard as a police force. I was not in NKY/Cincy at the time.)

    Short answer : no.

    The Constitution is the law of the land. If another law comes to the land, the Constitution still overrules it.
