Jean-Claude bitch slaps leaders..

In Brandenburg, the Junker was originally one of the members of the higher edelfrei (immediate) nobility without or before the accolade.. It evolved to a general denotation of a young or lesser noble, sometimes politically insignificant, understood as "country squire"..The title today survives in its traditional meaning in the Netherlands and Belgium in the Dutch form Jonkheer.."The Junkers" of Prussia were often contrasted with the elites of the western and southern states in Germany, such as the city-republic of Hamburg (which had no nobility) or Catholic states like Bavaria, in which the "Junker class" of Prussia was often treated with contempt..SS-Junker or Standartenjunker was a paramilitary Nazi rank that was used by the Schutzstaffel (SS) between the years of 1933 and 1945.. The rank was a special position held by those aspiring for officer commissions in the armed wing of the SS, first known as the SS-Verfügungstruppe and later as the Waffen-SS..Château Mouton Rothschild has its vineyards on the slopes leading down to the Gironde Estuary, in the Bordeaux region, mainly producing grapes of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety..

We have visitors.. Tremendous visitors!..

Juncker shares a glass of wine with German leader Chancellor Angela Merkel..

Juncker was born in Redange, Luxembourg, and spent the majority of his childhood in Belvaux.. He studied at the Roman Catholic "école apostolique" (secondary school) at Clairefontaine on the edge of Arlon in Belgium, before returning to Luxembourg to study for his Baccalaureate at the Lycée Michel Rodange..In early November 2014, just days after becoming head of the commission, Juncker was hit by media disclosures—derived from a document leak known as LuxLeaks—that Luxembourg under his premiership had turned into a major European centre of corporate tax avoidance..In 2017, leaked diplomatic cables show Juncker, as Luxembourg’s prime minister from 1995 until the end of 2013, blocked EU efforts to fight tax avoidance by multinational corporations...Luxembourg's citizens are by far the wealthiest in Europe, with a gross domestic product per capita twice that of Germany and three times that of Britain...In July 2017, Juncker described the European Parliament as "ridiculous" after only a few dozen MEPs came to attend a debate dedicated to evaluating Malta’s six months in the EU presidency chair, accusing MEPs of showing a lack of respect for smaller EU countries..Although rebuked for his remark by the Parliament’s president, Antonio Tajani, Juncker responded “I will never again attend a meeting of this kind..‘The situation is desperate’: murdered Maltese journalist’s final written words..

1992 - Universal Soldier + Aldi Supermarket Scene..

He went to boarding school in Belgium and university in Alsace, where he met his future wife, Christiane Frising.. Her father was one of Hitler's so-called Propaganda Commissars, and was among those responsible for the 'Germanification' of Luxembourg.. He helped enforce the Nuremberg Laws which stripped Jews of their rights, and were a forerunner to the Holocaust..Like some parody of a Mafia don, Juncker darkly warned Britain that it would face 'consequences' for leaving..But then Juncker, known for his rumpled suits and alcohol-laced breath, is nothing if not a small-town bully-boy politician..While Juncker, seems to have expended much energy helping major corporations save millions of pounds, he is not averse to spending millions himself — as long as it is public money, of course..As for his drinking — which has afforded him a bitter-sweet relationship with that other renowned boozer Nigel Farage — Juncker is said to have a particular weakness for Glenfarclas malt whisky (which costs up to £130), bottles of which are said to be kept in the fridge behind his Commissioner's desk...Glenfarclas distillery is a Speyside whisky distillery in Ballindalloch, Scotland.. Glenfarclas translates as meaning valley of the green grass..The dining room of Ballindalloch is said to be haunted by a ghost known as The Green Lady... it is possible, let this chalice pass from me..But let your will be done..Where is the wine..The New Wine dying on the vine..Great merciful bloodstained gods!. Your pardon...
