The chief of the United Nations will be front and center as America rings in the new year, pushing the button that starts the Times Square New Year’s Eve countdown clock.
EDITOR’S NOTE: On December 23rd, the United Nations launched a blistering attack on the sovereign nation of Israel. On December 31st, the secretary general of the United Nations will symbolically stand over the pinnacle of the world’s most powerful city with his hand on the button that will drop the ball to usher in the new year. Is this just an amazing coincidence, or a message being sent by the New World Order? One thing’s for sure, the world that’s coming in is nothing like we’ve ever seen.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will push the Waterford crystal button that kicks off the official 60-second ball drop to the new year, per the Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, co-organizers of the annual Times Square New Year’s Eve event.
“At a time when the world seems ever-more fractured, divided and disconnected the symbolism of our global celebration highlighting the United Nations and its Global Goals could not be more important,” said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance. “Unlike too many other voices in the world today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s legacy of bringing people and nations together, supporting refugee relief efforts and opposing war align perfectly with New Year’s hopes for a better and more just world.”
The event will mark the final act for Ban, of South Korea, as secretary-general: The last day of his 10-year term is Dec. 31. Portugal’s Antonio Guterres will take over on Jan. 1. source
