George Zimmerman's lawyer has chided him for visiting a Florida firearms factory that makes the type of gun he used to kill unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin last year.
Zimmerman in July was acquitted of murder in Martin's death in a racially charged case that polarized the U.S. public and raised questions about Florida's loose gun laws and equal justice.
"We understand how George visiting the factory that produces the gun used to shoot Trayvon Martin is seen as inappropriate," Shawn Vincent, spokesman for Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara, told Reuters on Friday.

President Obama: Native American Relations With Administration At Turning Point

Bill John Baker, principal chief of the largest Indian tribe, the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma, said before the conference that American Indians have been both "well-served" and "hurt" by other administrations, but Obama has "backed up his words with actions that have made a positive impact on the lives of Native people."

"Obama has done better for tribes than the others, except for the Nixon administration," said Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a former Republican senator from Colorado. President Richard Nixon advocated tribal self-determination as official U.S. policy.

With the accomplishments come greater expectations from a people whose rates of unemployment, violent crime, youth suicides, poverty and high school dropouts are significantly higher than in the rest of the country.

"It's two steps forward, one step backward," Campbell said. "No matter what we do, we have to find a way for Indians to be self-sufficient and not dependent on the federal government, except for those services required by treaty in the old days."

The administration still must implement laws Obama signed and fund lawsuit settlements. Also, tribes want to see the administration push legislation through Congress to get around a 2009 Supreme Court decision limiting the interior secretary's authority to accept land into federal trust on behalf of Indian tribes. The decision has held up economic development for tribes.

Salazar told the leaders Friday the court's decision was a "wrong decision" and needs to be fixed.

"We still need improvements in roads, bridges, schools, hospitals as well as addressing the digital, electrical and clean water disparities that hamper development and quality of life issues for our people," Baker said.

Still, Obama has assembled a respectable bragging list.....

...."We should be proud of what we've done together, but of course that should sharpen our resolve to do even more because as long as Native Americans face unemployment and poverty rates that are far higher than the national average we are going to have more work to do," Obama said. He said his jobs bill would help.

Jacqueline Johnson Pata, executive director of the National Congress of American Indians and an Alaska native, said native peoples' enthusiasm for Obama goes deeper.

Obama has embraced Native American tribal sovereignty preserved in the Constitution, court decisions and treaty agreements and made that the foundation for his administration's dealings with tribes, Pata said.

Like former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Obama appointed a Native American to his Intergovernmental Affairs staff. But he also appointed Kimberly Teehee, a member of the Cherokee Nation, as senior policy adviser for Native American Affairs.

In addition, Obama reminded executive department heads and agencies in a November 2009 memo of their obligation to regularly consult and collaborate with tribal officials on policies that impact Native Americans.

"I think we have made strides under the Obama administration the likes of which tribes have not seen for 30 years," said Stacy Bohlen, executive director of the National Indian Health Board. Bohlen is a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians in Michigan.

However, if you're really interested, watch the documentary "Out of the Blue". You can find it on Netflix or in its entirety on YouTube. It goes into great detail and shows clips of the press conference with those involved in the Disclosure Project.

If you don't believe UFOs and alien beings are visiting our planet, there's no doubt in my mind you will be after watching it.

But nothing to be concerned about. They've been here for a long time and are doing more to help us. They would have already shown intent to harm us if that was their intention.

Martin Luther Kingís Dream Still Lives

In an interview with Allison Samuels, Bernice King talks about her fatherís legacy, civil rights today and the Trayvon Martin case

Letís talk about Trayvon Martin. How do you think your father would have handed the aftermath of the unarmed teenagerís death?

Obviously a childís death upsets me and the idea that so much had to be done just to get an arrest really does make the point that this country and African-Americans have to be fully aware of whatís going on around us. We have to know and understand the laws and how they pertain to us and fight those that donít support our rights. Itís also important to understand that my father would have reached out to both the Martin family and to [shooter George] Zimmerman in a situation like this. He would have extended his hand to both to begin the healing because we have to heal in order to move forward. Daddy fought for both justice and peace so he would have cared about both families and worked with both families to bring them to a better place in a very tragic situation.

George Zimmerman was found not guilty which outraged a great number of people. How do you feel?

I understood the reason behind peopleís anger since I thought evidence was there to show that Zimmerman was responsible for this young manís death. Manslaughter certainly seemed very reasonable. But with my law background Iím not sure the prosecution did all it needed to do make the case and I donít understand why. There were many issues from that night that werenít addressed and many statements about young black men that werenít rebutted by the prosecution. That was bothersome, as was the District Attorneyís upbeat demeanor after the verdict. I thought it was totally inappropriate and made you wonder if there wasnít some kind of arrangement in the end. Iíve never seen a DA so upbeat after losing such a high profile case.

Wayne Williams didn't need a gun to murder all those children in Atlanta.
For some reason, mass murderers are attracted to the Democratic Party. We even have a manager in DHS promoting mass murder.
Why is that?
Now, let's solve the problem. First, we have to understand why it is only Democrats committing these mass murders.
Why is it only Democrats committing these mass murders? What is your opinion on that fact?
Interesting that you knew all these mass murderers so well personally that you knew their political persuasion...

BTW as for Major Nidal, he's a Muslim Terrorist and against all U.S. political parties.

Pray tell, please enlighten all of us and provide some concrete evidence of your statements

first we have to ask, why is it that conservatives make huge assumptions with no basis in facts or reality?

All this happened in New York State, which, even back then, had much tougher gun and self defense laws than the state of Florida has.
What are the legal similarities and differences between this case and the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case?
You lack in comprehension, heavily! Zimmerman wasn't even charged for over a month. Had the police charged Zimmerman like they shouldn't, nobody outside the state of Florida would've even heard of Zimmerman or, Trayvon Martin. I don't care what the circumstances, if a blackman shoots &, kills anyone, he will be charged &, face a trial. The cases are identical if not for that 1 gigantic difference!
