France's state-owned railway is set to be banned from bidding for a £4 billion contract in the USA because of its role in the World War II Holocaust, it emerged today. SNCF runs some of the fastest and most efficient lines in the world but has a dark history which saw it transport thousands of Jews to their deaths in German concentration camps. Now senators in the US state of Maryland have proposed a bill which would make it illegal for the French to apply for prestige projects.

But China is not banned for slavery and death today as opposed to over a generation ago.

China now exports more than America exports.

America runs a $300 billion / year trade deficit with China.

We only sell China $100 billion / year.

We buy $400 billion. Every year. And the amount is growing.

America it is time to pay a very large amount of attention to the single most highly-populated country on earth.

China is beating America, bigtime.

We are losing.

Badly.

If US politicians are going to pursue this course they will have to ban the democrat party and exhume half the Federal Government politicians from the WWII war years and the Cold War years.

After they dig them up they will have to be put on trial for everything from collusion with Nazis and Communists on up to openly traitorous action to aid and abet the enemy.

Then they can move on to arresting and prosecuting the new generation of democrat traitors in the White House and inside the beltway.

Let me guess, Deutsche Bahn will be free to bid.

We are governed by idiots, and I wouldn't be surprised if DB weren't paying them off.

Our elites have no interest in winning: they can simply take what they want from Treasury, earn interest on their overseas investments or make money re-selling Chinese crap.

Once they get another 20-40 million Mexicans 'voting', it will be nothing but an EBT card and a feather boa stomping on a human face, forever.

When will we stop beating the dead horse of WW II? How many generations must pass? Every nation has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. America and England bombed civilian targets in Germany killing millions of women and children. Japan killed millions of Chinese with germ warfare. Italy used poison gas in Africa-—It was a grim and terrible war.

It's interesting to me that more and more stories posted on FR about the outrageous stupidity or corruption of the US government at all levels, from the Feds, to the states or local police brutality are coming from the British press.

Guess we need our own 'Radio Free Liberty' now to cover what the Ministry of Propaganda here doesn't want known.

>>>Let me guess, Deutsche Bahn will be free to bid.<<<

Siemens company building these trains in Germany are famous for fabulous kickback schemes.
The French are only famous for building the best trains and their pricing is too transparent so they had no chance since the very beginning.

Old news trumps current events. China is welcomed to do anything here, France not so much.

Thank you. Hate to say it, but it’s a sacred cow - NAZIs and Jews.

A dead horse??? Really? You think Hitler and the Nazis were just another in a string of bad guys?

Eisenhower made sure we would never forget the particular evil the Nazi’s wrought upon the earth...
Never forget...
