What law is based on US Constitution and Supreme Court decisions?

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. All the amendments, clauses, articles, and paragraphs are laws. Currently, all 27 of these laws are a contract between the U.S. citizens and our Government. They cannot violate these laws or they risk certain liabilities. However, the government has the ability to bend these rules through bills and laws, but cannot legally strip them or excessively restrict them. Each of the 50 states in the U.S. government is required to abide by the U.S. Constitution through law. It's required for statehood itself. A states' constitution is founded on all 27 amendments to the U.S. constitution. The states constitution can enumerate other powers not delegated to the Federal Government. That's 10th Amendment's law.

Can branches bend?

It depends on the branch's moisture content. Dry branches break if you try to bend them. The greater the moisture content of the branch, the further you can bend it before it breaks. Manufacturers who need to bend wood, for example when making musical instruments or wooden wheels, put it in a steamer to increase the moisture content. Immediately after removing the wood from the steamer, the worker bends the wood into the shape he/she wants then clamps the wood to hold that shape until it dries.
