Welcome to MOTIFS, where I follow cultural and literary images found in the Bible in an attempt to unearth God's meaning in His pattern of usage.


This recognition of the preventive scope of executive agreements was part of the movement to revise the Constitution in the 1950s to limit the president`s powers in this area, but this movement has failed.496 If the president makes an executive agreement, what kind of commitment does he impose on the United States? It is clear that it can impose international obligations with potentially serious consequences, and it is equally clear that these obligations can be extended over a long period of time.488 The nature of national obligations imposed by executive agreements is not so obvious. Do contracts and executive agreements have the same impact on domestic policy?489 contracts pre-exist state law by applying the supremacy clause. While agreements made under the authorization or contractual commitment of Congress also stem from the preventive force of the supremacy clause, this textual basis for the pre-emption period is probably absent for executive agreements based exclusively on the president`s constitutional powers. Another view seemed to be the basis of the Supreme Court`s decision in the United States. Belmont,491 gives effect to Litvinov`s allocation. The opinion of Sutherland J.A. was based on his curtiss-Wright492 opinion. A first instance would have erred in dismissing a complaint filed by the United States as an agent of the Soviet Union for certain funds formerly held by a Russian metallurgical group whose assets had been acquired by the Soviet government. The President`s act in recognizing the Soviet government and the agreements that accompany it represented an international pact that the president, as the “only body” of international relations for the United States, could enter without consulting the Senate. State laws and policies have also made no difference in such a situation; While the supremacy of treaties is explicitly defined by the Constitution, the same rule applies “in the case of all international pacts and agreements, that full power over international affairs belongs to the national government and cannot and cannot be subject to circumcision or interference by individual states.” 493 An executive agreement[1] is an agreement between the heads of government of two or more nations, which has not been ratified by the legislature, since the treaties are ratified. Executive agreements are considered politically binding to distinguish them from legally binding contracts. 497,539 U.S.

Regan, 453 U.S. 654 (1981), was rich in learning on many topics with executive agreements, but the preventive force of the agreements, which relied exclusively on the power of the president, was not on the agenda, as the Court concluded that Congress had authorized various presidential actions or had long accepted them in others. The U.S. Supreme Court Pink (1942) found that international agreements, which were concluded in law, have the same legal status as treaties and do not require Senate approval. To Reid v. Concealed (1957), the Tribunal, while reaffirming the President`s ability to enter into executive agreements, found that such agreements could not be contrary to existing federal law or the Constitution.
