U.S.C. § 2255 (2012) motion and dismissing it on that basis.
The order is not appealable unless a circuit justice or judge

United States v. Winestock, 340 F.3d 200, 208
In order to obtain authorization to file a
successive § 2255 motion, a prisoner must assert claims based on
(1) newly discovered evidence that . . . would be
sufficient to establish by clear and convincing
evidence that no reasonable factfinder would have
found the movant guilty of the offense; or
(2) a new rule of constitutional law, made retroactive
to cases on collateral review by the Supreme Court,
that was previously unavailable.
28 U.S.C. § 2255(h).
Burgess’s claims do not satisfy either of
successive § 2255 motion.
We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal
this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
