Statement on the Recess Appointment of Charles W. Pickering To Serve on 
the United States Court of Appeals for the
Fifth Circuit


January 16, 2004

    Today I was proud to exercise my constitutional authority to appoint 
Judge Charles W. Pickering to serve on the United States Court of 
Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Judge Pickering has served with 
distinction as a United States District Judge since he was unanimously 
confirmed by the Senate in 1990. He is highly qualified to serve on the 
Court of Appeals and has widespread bipartisan support from those who 
know him best.
    For the past 2\1/2\ years, Judge Pickering has been waiting for an 
up-or-down vote in the Senate. A bipartisan majority of Senators 
supports his confirmation, and if he were given a vote, he would be 
confirmed. But a minority of Democratic Senators has been using 
unprecedented obstructionist tactics to prevent him and other qualified 
individuals from receiving up-or-down votes. Their tactics are 
inconsistent with the Senate's constitutional responsibility and are 
hurting our judicial system.
    As a result of today's recess appointment, Judge Pickering will fill 
a seat on the Fifth Circuit that has been designated a judicial 
emergency. He will perform a valuable service on a court that needs more 
judges to do its work with the efficiency the American people deserve 
and expect. Again I call on the Senate to stop playing politics with the 
American judicial system and to give my nominees the up-or-down votes 
they deserve.

Notice--Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to 
Terrorists Who Threaten To Disrupt the Middle East Peace Process

January 16, 2004

    On January 23, 1995, by Executive Order 12947, the President 
declared a national emergency pursuant to the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
economy of the United States constituted by grave acts of violence 
committed by foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East 
peace process. On August 20, 1998, by Executive Order 13099, the 
President modified the Annex to Executive Order 12947 to identify four 
additional persons, including Usama bin Laden, who threaten to disrupt 
the Middle East peace process.
    Because these terrorist activities continue to threaten the Middle 
East peace process and continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States, the national emergency declared on January 23, 1995, as 
expanded on August 20, 1998, and the measures adopted on those dates to 
deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond January 23, 
2004. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the 
national emergency with respect to foreign terrorists who

[[Page 92]]

threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                George W. Bush
The White House,
January 16, 2004.

2004]

Letter to Congressional Leaders on Continuation of the National 
Emergency With Respect to Terrorists Who Threaten To Disrupt the Middle 
East Peace Process

January 16, 2004

Dear Mr. Speaker:  (Dear Mr. President:)

    Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) 
provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, 
prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President 
publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice 
stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the 
anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have sent the 
enclosed notice, stating that the emergency declared with respect to 
foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process 
is to continue in effect beyond January 23, 2004, to the Federal 
Register for publication. The most recent notice continuing this 
emergency was published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2003 (68 
FR 3161).
    The crisis with respect to the grave acts of violence committed by 
foreign terrorists that disrupt the Middle East peace process that led 
to the declaration of a national emergency on January 23, 1995, as 
expanded on August 20, 1998, has not been resolved. Terrorist groups 
continue to engage in activities that have the purpose or effect of 
threatening the Middle East peace process and that are hostile to United 
States interests in the region. Such actions constitute an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
economy of the United States. For these reasons, I have determined that 
it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared with respect 
to foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace 
process and to maintain in force the economic sanctions against them to 
respond to this threat.
     Sincerely,
                                                George W. Bush

Note: Identical letters were sent to J. Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the 
House of Representatives, and Richard B. Cheney, President of the 
Senate. This item was not received in time for publication in the
