The Dark Truth About the History of the United States of America

1511 ratings | 259530 views
The Untold History of the United States (also known as Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States) is a 2012 documentary series directed, produced, and narrated by Oliver Stone. Stone is the director and narrator of all ten episodes. The series is a reexamination of some of the underreported and darkest parts of American modern history, using little-known documents and newly uncovered archival material. The series looks beyond official versions of events to the deeper causes and implications and explores how events from the past still have resonant themes for the present day. Stone said, "From the outset I've looked at this project as a legacy to my children and a way to understand the times I've lived through. I hope it can contribute to a more global insight into our American history."[7] The first three episodes of the series premiered at the New York Film Festival on October 6, 2012, with Indiewire describing them as "extremely compelling" and "daring."[8] The series was personally presented by Stone at the Subversive Festival on May 4, 2013, in Zagreb, Croatia, which next to film screenings also included debates and public lectures by prominent intellectuals such as Slavoj Žižek and Tariq Ali.[9] Stone described the project as "the most ambitious thing I've ever done. Certainly in documentary form, and perhaps in fiction, feature form."[10] Production took four years to complete. Stone confessed, "It was supposed to take two years, but it's way over schedule".[11] The premiere was finally set for November 12, 2012.[12] Stone spent $1 million of his own money on the film as the budget inflated from $3 million to $5 million.[13] The series premiered on Showtime in November 2012. The executive producers were Oliver Stone, Tara Tremaine and Rob Wilson. A book by the same name was also published. The Untold History of the United States was released on Blu-ray on October 15, 2013. All ten episodes of the show are featured on four discs, and the Blu-ray release also includes various bonus content, as well as two prologue episodes. The first prologue episode deals with World War I, the Russian Revolution and Woodrow Wilson. The second prologue episode highlights the pre-World War II era of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.[14][15] The series was released on DVD on March 4, 2014.[16] The series is currently available for streaming on Netflix. The ten-part series is supplemented by a 750-page companion book, The Untold History of the United States, also written by Stone and Kuznick, released on Oct 30, 2012 by Simon & Schuster.[17] Kuznick objected to the working title "Secret History", claiming that "the truth is that many of our 'secrets' have been hidden on the front page of the New York Times. If people think the secrets will be deep, dark conspiracies, they'll be disappointed. We'll be drawing on the best recent scholarship".[18] It was subsequently retitled The Untold History of the United States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Untold_History_of_the_United_States

Oliver Stone is a history revisionist. His, and Peter Kuznick's book claim that the USA didn't need to drop an Atomic bomb on Japan. Japan knew for well over a year that they could not win the war, but they still continued to fight, instead of sueing for peace. If there was no need to drop "the bomb", why did we have to drop a second Atomic bomb?

Kingsolver’s “The Laguna” made it more clear about events leading up to Stalin in Russia. Yesterday the memorial parades for Russian “Immortal Regiment” were not as big as I would have liked to see. Certainly if more people had seen “The Putin Interviews” they would have been better. The Teardrop Memorial Russia sent is really beautiful.

Elliot Roosevelt's book, “As He Saw It” is informative re the Churchill, Stalin, FDR relation. After the war Elliot’s information was neutralized by his marital distraction of Faye Emerson. Operation Paperclip then infiltrated Truman’s world as M.G. Lord, daughter of an American rocket scientist, describes in her book “Astroturf”. George Webb in Truth Leaks on Utube tears into the channeling of power in US by the elites using all the resources at their disposal prior to FDR to the present.

Every war since napoleons was bought and paid for on both sides by the royals, the banksters and the Vatican. There was no revolution, the civil war ww1 and ww2 when we were taken over by the nazi bush regime who were right hand men in hitlers brown shirt army. No 1776 no Independence Day no independence.slaves of white and black often slaved were the same color of each other. No brave George Washington no valley forge but a lot of forgery.

MG Smedley Butler warned the US President and Congress about the Military Industrial complex long before the started of WW2, but no one listened. In his book, War is a Reacket Butler explains his position. During President Eisenhower's final address to the nation he also warned of the power of the Military Industrial complex, but still no one listen. The poor and the middle class fight wars while the rich get richer.

the two atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were made in Germany as yellowcake has U235 the trigger and U238 to which deuterium was added to make U239, plutonium which is very explosive. The secret is the centrifuge that spins at 50,000 times a second. The cyclotron at Batavia, Illinois cannot make an atomic bomb.

+Andy Patterson I never said U238 was Plutonium. This last one is a man made radioactive element and is the most stable of the man made elements, with a 1/2 life of millions of years (Pu244), but this is irrelevant to what Oppenheimer was doing which was to make the first nuclear power for the US to be used for war purposes. After his development and the first 3 bombs were exploded, he was offered to develop the H bomb. He declined. Oppenheimer did not want to feel responsible for a weapon that was going to be so destructive, much more than the ones already in use. The End

Believe what you want, It is no difference to me. But don't trey to fool others. +Alberto Palma

U238 is nit plutonium. Plutonium is made by adding deuterium to U238 to make U239. To get yellowcake into the centrifuges you treat it with Hidroflouric acid. U235 goes up to another centrifuge, u238 to the side and down. After passing through 1.000 centrifuges. you treat the hydroflouicuranium gas with calcium and you get a salt. From a salt you can get the metal. U235 if the trigger that was heated by batteries to the inverted cone shape to shoot high temperatures into the plutonium to get the reaction of fission. Oppenheimer lied, Churchill lied, and Roosevelt was dead and his coffin wasn't open for viewing. +Alberto Palma
Alberto Palma (22 days ago)
+Andy Patterson He didn't lie. One of the bombs was made of Uranium and he other one was Plutonium. Little boy was made of U235 while Fat Man was made of Plutonium. U238 was not used to make the first 3 bombs. The Alamogordo test bomb was made of U235. Oppenheimer worked on that together with Enrico Fermi to make sure they had the bombs ready before Germany, even though Germany was 2 yeas ahead of them. They feared the Nazis could have had it ready before them but the bombardment over Germany intensified to avoid more weapons development. Then Germany was not able to put together enough raw material to develop their bomb because the country was almost in ruins like the city of Dresden and others. That's what I know.

To start, Germany created two atomic bombs and a German Army was raised and ready to drive the Russians back to Moscow with two. Mussolini was headed for Switzerland where he and would be flown into a field outside Berlin, German intelligence gave Mussolini's route, captured April 27, Brits said kill all as who has the bomb will rule the world, "Treachery" tells all, April 28, Mussolini is killed, 29 German Intelligence surrenders to British and American forces, April 30, Hitler kills himself but Borman put sedative in the coffee he gave Eva and Adolf, both fell asleep, Borman fakes their death, three planes land in a pasture outside Berlin and all are flown to Austria, then to Norway, a Submarine takes Hitler, Eva, Borman, and nuclear scientists to Argentina where the German scientists work on cold fusion with some success. Peron protects them and all are hidden away in Lake Bariloche in the Argentine Andes, and the Russians use the German scientists they captured and make the Czar Bomb, tested on Nova Zemlya 1960 at 1.570 more powerful than

Lol I'm Very Surprised Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick Pussy Foot around Roosevelt Lend lease Act its what saved Russians and British Ass's. Go to Wikipedia type Lend lease Act see the list of what the Americans Gave away for pennies to a dollar maybe. Especially to Russia than Stalin had the audacity to give the Americans the middle finger and good ole Churchill gave up Poland like a Bad fart to Stalin but British declared war on Germans for invading Poland, The Germans had good reason too but everybody likes the Hogans Heros Version Better. What a FN joke.

Georgetown professor is spot on. Stalin apologists are just as bad as fascist apologists. Oliver Stone and Noam disappoint me. They idolize the Soviets and are giving Putin a pass right now. NO COUNTRY should get a pass that invades, terrorizes and stomps through countries like Soviets did w Hungary,Poland Czechoslovakia, E Germany etc., after WW11. Whether it's colonial Britain, America and the West, or Russia and former Soviets. Please, no childish idealizations. Wallace would have been interesting indeed. He was outnumbered. The Soviets didnt believe in the rise of 'the common man' any more than western capitalists.

.EXCUSE ME ! Oliver Stone is full of s.... The USA lifted 1 BILLION Chinese and Indian nationals from subsistence level poverty in less than 20 years. The USA feeds over 2 BILLION people from starvation year in and year out for decades in Third world countries. The USA rebuilt ALL of Europe after WW2 and fed Europe for decades after WW2. The Marshall Plan was $Trillions in today's dollars and NEVER has been repaid by Europe ! The USA liberated the 300 MILLION people from the (Cold War) Mass murder by starvation, forced labor and disease of MARXISM in the USSR under Stalin and up until the 1980's. (50 MILLION killed in peacetime) DEMOCIDE (70 MILLION Chinese under Mao Tse Tung)

John Adams "There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by sword. The other is by debt." Franklin Delano Roosevelt “All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service.” George Patton “The loudest voices in support of war always comes from those who've never seen one." Dwight Eisenhower "As we peer into society's future, we -- you and I, and our government -- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow." Patrick Henry “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to RESTRAIN THE GOVERNMENT - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." Henry Ford “It is well enough that the people do not understand banking or the monetary system, for if they did there would be revolution before tomorrow morning." Andrew Jackson "It is one of the serious evils of our present system of banking that it enables one class of society, and that by no means a numerous one, by its control over the currency to act injuriously upon the interests of all the others and to exercise more than its just proportion of influence in political affairs." James Madison "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance." Thomas Jefferson "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson "The system of banking we have both equally and ever reprobated. I contemplate it as a blot left in all our constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction, which is already hit by the gamblers in corruption and is sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens".

America’s greatest enemy, is and has always been its own government The criminals destroying our country, are our elected rape-resentatives we keep electing into our governing system. These political parasites, are sucking Liberty’s tits dry at the expense of our own stupidity. We the people, have been dumbed down and long conned, for generations by criminals pretending to be politicians. The democratic and republican parties have both, repeatedly taken turns raping the system, for a 167 years, dividing to conquer us and our political system. Divided and conquered, we are. They fucked things up, so badly that socialized retardation, is now trying to pimp our country into a brothelized nation full of socialism whores. This diseased ideology directly conflicts with the United States Constitution, yet America has its very own DSA political terrorist group in a none socialist country destroying what’s left of our constitution. When a free country starts trying to enslave itself by sucking off socialism, that’s how stupid America has become.

There is no evidence that , "Japan was was in the process of surrendering ", when the US doped the first atomic bomb on them and none between the first and second bomb either. The truth is ( Fact Based) that they were preparing for a massive defenses of the homeland using women,children and every able body person they could muster. Based on casualties suffered by US forces received in taking Iwo Jima and Okinawa were set at up to one million. So the bombs saved lives by the hundreds of thousands.

Oliver Stone, Spielberg is truly the most honest affiliated with Hollywood. As far as so-called A-Listers go. Beyond this, I'm afraid History is lost on millennials and kids born within the past ten years. Which I refuse to put those kids in the millennial category. Because when they were born there was either a cell phone or computer attached. Sad none of which look up history nor just words. A tool so convenient yet utilized solely as an entertainment device. No idea of a Supreme Creator much fewer questions about why we are here or our purpose. Empathy is a word loss on these same kids. Back to Oliver Stone. He rocks and definitely has done his job as being a writer and director. Very easily could have decided to help dumb down America with candy-coated movies that turn the mind away from reality but he didn't. Would love to hear his thoughts about Christianity. Anyways Happy New Year and may God shine his loving light on all of you. Even if you are agnostic and or atheist. Peace. -Jason

We live in a world with so many military conflicts, that most are not on any ones minds. Just the big one for this particular week week on the cable and network channels.

Russia was just as genocidal and brutal to its neighbors as Germany. There was no good ethical choice, just strategic. We could never have been friends with Russian leaders or tolerate their actions. The recent invasion of Crimea was nor that big a deal to many Eastern Europeans because the Russians had already killed off the native population in the early part of the century.

Oliver Stone wrote a book called, "The Untold History of the United States?" I would think it might be named, "The UNTRUE History of the United States." This guy is a schmuck. "JFK" anyone??

Al Loomis, you also may have forgotten: Christopher Columbus, Winston Churchhill, Scum-bag King Leopold of Belgium, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and practically all the U.S. presidents, including George Bush, Mr. 41, and the list is endless. Perhaps you, like millions of American, will disagree; that is understandably okay as long as some people know the truth.

• HOW THE WAR MAKES THE SILENCE OF THE DRAMATURGWhen people die heroically for their homeland, not timeshow them to beloved and wives, fathers and mothers, that they fall victimmisses committed by idiots, a victim of the capitalists' greed, ambitionconquerors, electoral fevers of demagogues, pharisaism of patriots, sacrificeLust and Lies, Malice and Bloodthirst, always indulging in war, becauseshe unlocks the doors of their prisons and seats them on the throne of power and popularity. Aif all of them are ruthlessly unmasked, they will also be hiding under the scenea cloak of ideals, just as they hide themselves in real life. You are demagogues

What are pro-communist propagandist Oliver Stone is, fuck this guy ! Does he have any appreciation of how National Socialism was the arch enemy of the bane of the world that is communism ? Of course he doesn't ! He can't make a documentary like Adolf Hitler, the greatest story never told !

Bleeding heart liberal spin on history. 'Oh the tragedy of the Japanese American internment! They were paid pitiful wages for the work they did.' But how many died???? No mention of the Russian Siberian Gulags and the millions of Russian citizens who died. Barely a mention of the Japanese prisoner of war camps and how many Americans died, and the German concentration camps, just mentioned in passing. 'Oh how inhuman were the Americans!' Did America start WWII? Oliver, you should thank God that we finished it or you would have experienced real brutality!

America wouldn't be any different today even if the Kennedy's Weren't killed, because the next president always comes along and undoes whatever good the last president has done or started to try to do do; so there's not ever much change for the good and when there is, it doesn't last very long. It's like silly silly 2 step; 2 steps forward and 2 steps back, leaving you with nothing.  Mostly everything just stays the same, crappy; unless your part of the 1% on top. Fuck it; why even bother?

Anyone else bothered by how TERRIBLE this guy's hairpiece is? Man, I am sure he can afford a hair transplant or maybe just a better hairpiece. It's distracting me.

This isnt some "the real truth" video, this is just going deeper into history. You didnt expose anyone, just wrote a book about known events in history.

Oliver, google the unabomber morph, it will blow your mind. Absolute indisputable proof the case we have been brainwashed to believe is absurd, was actually a government operation A to Z !!!

Stones realizes there was a conspiracy involved in the assassination of JFK but just can't quite get to the point of blaming FDR for sacrificing Pearl Harbor. FDR goaded the Japanese into war by denying them strategic materials, the U. S. military had broken the Japanese Naval code and our carriers were conveniently on exercises outside of the harbor on December 7th. Very disappointing Oliver. Not even you can be relied upon to write the unvarnished truth.

Over 28 to 30 million people where murder in gaul work camps Communist pure evil. American have know understanding the Russian fear of Stalin and his government and they had to live in toldly fear just speaking out of there government..People talking about free health care you speak out about Stalin you gotten nothing but slow death in one of his work camp. Nothing change in till Stalin die.The government stop some of the Murdering of their own people and did allow better treatment to their people.The system fall because They strip Russian People common encouragement of self worth. They told you what you should be and do.You did not have freedom to be something different.I remember Russia and east Germany very well how depressing the people truly were there. America are so foolish think communist is good. Stone know nothing about these nation except reading it He never live in it.
