Is Rodney Martin Obsessed with Indians or is He One?
Rodney Martin, "The only good nazi is a dead nazi."
They don't call him "Wounded Knee" for nothing!
With my recent claim that Rodney Martin looks like an Indian, Mexican or combination of the two and my accompanying video, a regular you-tube commenter of mine named "Yo Mama" brought out some information I hadn't seen that is pretty damning.

Rodney Martin is 100% American Indian. He has worked as an American Indian tribal administrator and in American Indian tribal government for most of his adult life. Now here's the really interesting part that Carolyn Yeager and Renegade Broadcasting won't talk about. Before he began his long career in American Indian tribal government, Rodney Martin was in the U.S. Army. This signifies that Rodney Martin is probably a Dept. of Defense intelligence operative of some sort, working for either U.S. Army intelligence or the Defense Intelligence Agency. The question is, why did the Dept. of Defense think that an obvious 100% American Indian would be able to fool American white nationalists into thinking that he was white? Maybe Rodney Martin's operation was a psychological experiment to determine how stupid and gullible the average American white nationalist is.
New Tribal Administrator makes his Mark on Reservation
Rodney “Wounded Knee” Martin: Amerindian Tribal Administrator
We now know, contrary to Martin's assurances that his wife was white, thanks to this 2007 article noting Martin getting a job working with Indians that stated matter of factly that his wife is full-blooded Cherokee. I am going to post the short article that claims this. The second one is much longer and worth your time if you wish to link to it. There are some juicy pictures with, interestingly, all democratic political operatives. In the 2nd article, he defames Nazis and neo-Nazis on multiple occasions and praises diversity
Folks, at best, what we have here is a government agent infiltrating the movement to cause dissension who justifies his lying by his hatred of who he is lying to. Mr. Coalburner defamer himself literally has been playing your movement since the day he entered it and reminds me again of his good buddy and why they are good buddies, David Cole-Stein
New tribal administrator makes his mark on reservation

TULE RIVER INDIAN RESERVATION - When he talks about his professional love, his face brightens, his eyes widen and his cadence becomes rapid fire - the kind of thing that happens to speech when a person is passionate about what they do.
Rodney Martin, the newly appointed Tule River Tribal Council administrator, is not shy about how he feels about his job.
I love what I do,” he said, the smile on his face punctuating his declaration. “This is where you make an impact on cities, towns and reservations. I've worked in government and I know you don't see the impact on the people you serve. I'd rather have real time here than show time there.”
If it's real time he wants, he has it.
Martin, 36, was appointed by the Tribal Council Aug. 20 and began work at the post Aug. 25. He spends long days overseeing tribal government affairs - long meaning from 6:30 or 7 a.m. and leaving “when I've accomplished what I needed to accomplish for the day.”
Federal, state and local government tenure are all part of the repertoire of Martin's experience and skill set. He has served in tribal government for 13 years, and came to the Tule River Indian Reservation from Yuma, Ariz., where he served on the Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs.
He founded his economic and community development consulting firm in 2000 - specializing in inter-governmental relations - which he owned and operated until accepting his current position.
Martin took multitasking to new heights during that period, including accepting the position of Arizona Commission of Indian Affairs. His appointment was made by then-Arizona Gov. June D. Hull; he served a full three-year term.
The 1993 graduate of William Jewell University was awarded the Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson Congressional Fellowships, and was a congressional intern for Arizona Rep. Ed Pastor during that time.
Just say he has a plethora of accomplishments, because it's true,” said Jennie Perez, his assistant. His accomplishments are so many there is no way to list them all.”
Those accomplishments and experience won him the job, according Tribal Chairman Neal Peyron. Martin came to the tribe in August, but still had an integral part in completing a list of important projects, including restructuring tribal budgets.
He burned the midnight oil on those budgets during the first two weeks he was here,” Peyron said. I'm very pleased with the work he's done. We hired him partly because of his experience working with other tribes and his experience with planning and development. We have a lot of development here that we're doing, from housing to community buildings, our domestic water system and our current waste system.
And his professionalism,” Peyron said. He is very professional.”
Martin, as busy as he is in his professional life, is a dedicated family man. He has been married to his wife Peggy, an Eastern Cherokee, for 12 years. The couple has five children: Johnathan, 11, Justyn, 9, Abby, 8, Destiny, 8 and Ana, 4.
His personal life is made more complete when he can spend time with his family, whether it's camping, reading or enjoying a television movie together.
His job, however, consumes a large chunk of his day.
One of the accomplishments Martin is exceptionally pleased with is the establishment of the Tribal Police Department. The plan is to have five officers in the reservation community, which has a population of about 1,000.
The council currently contracts with the Tulare County Sheriff's Department for law enforcement. A collaborative arrangement will continue while the council builds its force.
Three officers have already been recruited, Martin said.
Porterville Adult School Superintendent Bob Perez was among those invited to the Dec. 15 public safety ceremony, where those in attendance were updated on the new law enforcement program. It was there he met Martin.
Perez has been supportive of and involved with the tribe since the 1970s, he said.
They have worked for a long time for people on the reservation and southeastern Tulare County as a whole,” Perez said. As a sovereign nation they are self-sustaining, but continue to reach out beyond the reservation. They are a major contributor socially and economically to their community and outside of it.
I'm sure Rod [Martin] will contribute greatly,” Perez said. I met him and I was very pleased with his knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment to the Tribal Council and the reservation community. I think he will be an excellent link to southeastern Tulare County, which includes Porterville, Springville and surrounding areas.”
