Recently a friend of mine who works for KLA-TV created a short (17 minute) interactive documentary about the history of Jeanette Rankin, Missoula, MT. Several people from the local area did the voiceovers and I was pleased to be able to participate as well, reading a quote from Harton W. Sumners, a Texas Congressman.
For those who are not familiar with Jeanette Rankin, she was the first female member of Congress, elected in 1916, partly due to her anti-war stance, and cast a “No” vote when Woodrow Wilson requested that Congress declare war on Germany in 1917. She then lost her seat for a number of years, but ran again in 1940, also on an anti-war platform and regained the office. She then made history by casting the only “No” vote on FDR’s request for approval following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 07, 1941.
Yes, you read that right. She stood alone against the entire mood of the country and made her position very clear.
This is a very well made video and raises considerable questions about America’s entry into both WW1 and WW2. My part begins at 13:42. Click on one of the links at the bottom of the page.

Today is the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, which caused America’s entry into World War 2. But did you know that one person voted against going to war on December 8th 1941? Get to know who that was and why she did it in this broadcast. (Click one of the links below)
Why is this relevant today? Aren’t we in a very similar situation. A regional war that could be expanded into a world war at any time. Will we go along or ask the critical question: Qui bono? Will truth and peace prevail this time? It’s up to us.
Please watch and share this critical broadcast on this historical day, so that entries into war remain dark days in history that never repeat.
