Description
26Hun Exec Order Declares A National Emergency and Gives Sec Treas Paulson Presidential Executive Powers. It does not say when or where those powers are limited are indeed if they are, but it does say they are transferable to others....The Order appears to be limited to N Korea, but we have no knowledge of any other orders of Classified nature that do the same thing!! It would seem that Paulson is using some of these Presidential Powers in many peoples lives!!
