Presently before the Court is Petitioner Arthur D'Amario III's motion, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(6), for relief from the Court's December 7, 2005, Order (the "2005 Order"), denying his habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Also before the Court is Petitioner's motion for an expedited hearing on his pending Rule 60(b)(6) motion. For the reasons set forth below, Petitioner's Rule 60(b)(6) motion will be DENIED and his motion for an expedited hearing will be DISMISSED AS MOOT.
I. FACTUAL BACKGROUND AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY
This is the second time that Petitioner has moved for relief from the 2005 Order under Rule 60(b). Accordingly, the Court will set forth the factual background and procedural history discussed in its earlier opinion denying Petitioner's first motion.
On December 4, 2001, Petitioner was convicted of threatening to assault and murder a federal judge in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 115(a)(1)(B). Petitioner also had a previous conviction for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon for which he was sentenced to eighteen months in prison by United States District Court Judge Joseph DiClerico.

1. R.I. judges

So the way we left it is that nobody had better push me or I'll explode. Leave me the fuck alone!' I said, or I'll kill somebody. I also said that I will not do this time and plan to beat the judges however I can even if it means hanging myself....
But they have to let me out eventually. I've told them where we're at. If they don't drop these terror tactics immediately, I'm dedicated to killing R.I. judges when I'm out. I'll put the conspirators on the front page.... I dare anybody to push me. You can accept all they've done to me in this hoax case. I won't. If I'm in S.H.U. when this arrives, I expect ...
