The objections are OVERRULED;
The Report and Recommendation is APPROVED and ADOPTED;
The Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus is DISMISSED with prejudice and
without an evidentiary hearing;
A certificate of appealability WILL NOT ISSUE as there is no basis for
concluding that “reasonable jurists could debate whether . . . the petition should have been
resolved in a different manner or that the issues presented were adequate to deserve
encouragement to proceed further;” 1 and
