|DANNY DEWAYNE BREWER,
GARY GIBSON, Warden,
ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA,
In his federal petition, Mr. Brewer argued ineffective assistance of counsel, denial of procedural due process and a fundamental miscarriage of justice. Upon recommendation of the magistrate judge, the district court denied the petition. On appeal, Mr. Brewer raises the same claims.
Mr. Brewer had different trial and appellate counsel and we agree with the State that the ineffectiveness claim raised in the petition concerning trial counsel does not require going beyond the record. See R. doc. 5 at 5. Accordingly, that claim is procedurally barred, and Mr. Brewer has not demonstrated cause and prejudice or a fundamental miscarriage of justice that would excuse that procedural default. See Coleman v. Thompson, 501 U.S. 722, 750 (1991); English v. Cody, 146 F.3d 1257, 1264 (10th Cir. 1998); Okla. Stat. Ann., tit. 22 § 1086. The OCCA rejected Mr. Brewer's other claims, including (and in the context of ) ineffective assistance of appellate counsel, R. doc. 5, Ex. F, after applying Strickland v. Washington, 466 U.S. 668, 687 (1984), and we cannot conclude that its resolution was contrary to federal law. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(1) & (2); Williams v. Taylor, 120 S. Ct. 1479, 1522-23 (2000).
Because Mr. Brewer has failed to make a "substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right," 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c)(2), we DENY his application for a certificate of appealability and DISMISS the appeal.

*. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. This court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
**. After examining the briefs and the appellate record, this three-judge panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not be of material assistance in the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1 (G). The cause is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.
