Plaintiff’s objections to the R&R do nothing more that repeat his sweeping claims that
he is a state prisoner in “long-term, supermax, solitary confinement” and that his constitutional
rights were violated by prison officials. Similar to the narrative in his Amended Complaint,
Plaintiff makes no targeted factual averments against any named Defendants within this
submission, and merely demands that we “accept my penalogical complaint of authenticity and
send all court-filing papers to the highest state-appointed officials.” (Doc. 13, p. 2). Because
Plaintiff makes no availing argument against the Magistrate Judge’s clearly correct analysis and
reasoning, we shall reject the his objections in toto.
