The United Nations has a lot of job openings listed on their UN Careers website. Among the job listings is this one: Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officers who will work under the UN’s Department of Peace Operations throughout the world. Including, apparently, in the United States.

The job listing for the position mentions a duty station as the UN’s New York City headquarters.

This position is located in the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) Section of the Office of Rule of Law and Security Institutions (OROLSI), within the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) in New York. New York is classified as a hardship “H” duty station and family duty station. The incumbent reports to and is under the overall supervision of the DDR Section Chief.

How does the UN describe the mission of a Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officer? Just what it sounds like.

• Acts as a Focal Point for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) components for two to three missions, responsible for planning, support to implementation and evaluation;

It sort of reads like the UN Secretariat is hiring cannon fodder. A “career” in disarmament that consists of two to three missions? Does that come with health burial insurance?

Sounds like UN management doesn’t have very high expectations for their disarmament officers.

The UN actually describes the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration mission as follows from the UN DDR webpage:

Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons of combatants and often also of the civilian population. Disarmament also includes the development of responsible arms management programmes.

Demobilization is the formal and controlled discharge of active combatants from armed forces or other armed groups. The first stage of demobilization may extend from the processing of individual combatants in temporary centres to the massing of troops in camps designated for this purpose (cantonment sites, encampments, assembly areas or barracks). The second stage of demobilization encompasses the support package provided to the demobilized, which is called reinsertion.

Reinsertion* is the assistance offered to ex-combatants during demobilization but prior to the longer-term process of reintegration. Reinsertion is a form of transitional assistance to help cover the basic needs of ex-combatants and their families and can include transitional safety allowances, food, clothes, shelter, medical services, short-term education, training, employment and tools. While reintegration is a long-term, continuous social and economic process of development, reinsertion is short-term material and/or financial assistance to meet immediate needs, and can last up to one year.

Reintegration is the process by which ex-combatants acquire civilian status and gain sustainable employment and income. Reintegration is essentially a social and economic process with an open time-frame, primarily taking place in communities at the local level. It is part of the general development of a country and a national responsibility, and often necessitates long-term external assistance.

That should make America’s law-abiding gun owners feel all warm and fuzzy, no?

• Supervises the Associate Expert (Junior Professional Officer) in the development and maintenance of the web-based United Nations DDR Resource Centre;
• Liaises with others (UN, regional organisations and Member States) providing DDR.
Other duties as required.

The one-world government types at the UN “strongly” encourage women to apply. Is this because women have unique skill sets that facilitate taking guns away from recalcitrant bitter clingers around the globe?

No. It has more to do with arbitrary “commitments”…

The United Nations Secretariat is committed to achieving 50/50 gender balance in its staff. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for this position.

Applicants should also know that “The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment.

Applicants might be non-smoking…unless and until they decide to take on the mission of ‘disarming, demobilizing and reintegrating’ the deplorables in America’s rural areas.

As people of the gun, we probably know plenty of gun owners who would go ‘weapons free’ at the sight of blue UN helmets attempting to disarm law-abiding Americans. If, that is, one of those Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officers ever decided to adopt the US as one of their missions.

    It’s past time to quit giving money to the UN and past time to boot them out of the USA. I hear there’s some space in Belgium for a building.

      “It’s past time to quit giving money to the UN and past time to boot them out of the USA.”

      The ‘plan’ they have admitted to makes *perfect* sense.

      They are probably fully aware that using the police to do their confiscation ‘dirty work’ will invite retaliation on the ones doing the seizing. They tend to live in the communities that they ‘police’.

      Using the UN ‘troops’ from other countries provides a blanket of anonymity for them. No way to easily know who their families are, so no way to retaliate…

      1. avatar M says:

        @Geoff, there’s more to it imo, if you give orders to our cops and military some will refuse, even in libtarded NYC. If you use foreign troops or mercenaries however, the overwhelming majority will follow orders without asking any question.

        1. avatar Rincoln says:

          Which makes them an occupying force and aggressor. It’s past time to kick them out. They’ve declared war.

        2. avatar LarryinTX says:

          I would suspect the Texas response to gun collectors from other countries would be to leave them where they fall, as a warning to their compadres, as opposed to giving them a burial. I bet that would stop blind obedience, when you have to step over the corpses of a few hundred friends.

        3. Within the US we currently have 120,000,000 gun owners who own some where in the neighborhood of 420,000,000 firearms, now if you include all of the worlds Armed Services as a UN Force, the Gun Owners in the US still out number them. Does anyone think for one moment that the United Nazis could field a combat force greater then the number of Gun Owners in the US. Within our own military 87% vote conservative and that same number are also private gun owners, according to numerous surveys over the past 15-20 years 90% of Rank and File Police are also Private Gun Owners. I would suggest that who ever in the United Nazis that is behind this re-think this idea. There is nothing to also prevent 120,000,000 gun owners from marching on their headquarters in NYC and removing them by force if necessary.

          No….. This article seems to forget that most militaries in the world are composed for internal security. Nobody has an expeditionary force large enough or a depth of logistics sufficient to subdue the U.S. dating back to the revolution. The founders, Lincoln, Yamamoto, etc. have all made cute little statements about the militia and 2nd amendment and how foreign subjugation is impossible.

          This article is garbage. All the U.N. has to do is sit back and cross it’s arms. National suicide is our lot.

      Little hard to do, considering the land on which the UN Building is sitting on isn’t US Territory. J.D. Rockefeller, Jr. deeded the land to the United Nations free of charge in 1946, and neither the United States and/or New York have a say as in it…

      1. avatar FUN says:

        Considering who owns the deed means absolutely nothing when it comes to the govt doing whatever it wants to with land, that is not a barrier to ejecting the UN. The process could be approached from many directions. Maybe eminent domain could be used as converting it to luxury apartments would generate more tax revenue. Maybe launching a criminal investigation into the UN could lead to its assets being seized (and I can guarantee you there’s enough filth in the UN that even a cursory investigation would find it if there was the political willpower to take a look.)

      3. avatar Mercury says:

        I can donate my land to any foreign government I want. That just means they own it though, not that it becomes their sovereign territory.

        What that building does have is a provisional extraterratorial status wherein they must still abide by state and federal laws, but that means that the agreement could simply be unilaterally revoked (it is not an embassy as such, so doing so would not be a declaration of war, not that you can declare war in a legal sense on something that claims not to be a country anyway) or they could be forced to follow a law that says “no UN activity within the borders of the United states”.

        They’d still own it, yes, but that would just be ownership. No different from any of the other foreign powers which own land in those states that permit it (which is most of them.)

        1. avatar Anymouse says:

          Even if it were to be sovereign territory (of a non-government that doesn’t have laws, issue passports, citizens, trade, currency, etc), the US could simply deny utilities and access. They don’t have a treaty with the US. We don’t have to let Russians, NorKs, Iranians, or anyone else in, especially if they weren’t here to visit us. The UN building is old and decrepit. They could sell the land and build elsewhere. People claim that without the US, the bad guys would run the show. Without the US, the UN is illegitimate, and nobody would care how many condemnation they pass against Israel or whose phony human rights council is staffed by terrorists and torturers who execute dissenters and homosexuals and legislatively discriminate against women, religious minorities, etc.

        2. avatar William Burke says:

          The buildings are over 70 years old, and surely condemnable on any number of grounds. I can almost guarantee you there’s asbestos aplenty.

          The WTC was loaded to the gills with asbestos, and abatement was estimated to be in the many, many billions. Fortunately for Larry Silverstein a different abatement method was found…

      4. avatar LarryinTX says:

        Don’t be silly, happens all the time. Cuba, Venezela, several African countries, Iran, over and over, you just show up at headquarters with a group of men with guns and attitudes, announce “you have one hour to be out of the country or be buried here. The government now owns this property.” Took care of that, huh? Easy peasy.

    It’s horseshit. This stuff is about UN peacekeeping missions in shit holes in Africa and other such lovely vacation spots.

    And the hardship rating for taking a job in NYC is about a pay adjustment for the cost of living there. Been paid hardship per diems many times to many cities when traveling for my defense industry employer. Happily, it never had to include NYC.

    1. avatar Ragnarredbeard says:

      Thank you for clarifying things. I get the feeling John Boch doesn’t have a clue what the UN job is or where it operates.

      “two to three missions” is referring to supporting peacekeeping missions, not going out on an op. The job is basically desk duty providing logistic support for the peacekeepers in the field.

Which means that law abiding citizens will be disarmed when the “conflict” had ended. What constitutes a conflict needs be be defined, but for my purposes a “conflict” is a military take over. I’m not ok with only arming myself during a military take over, then handing over my arms to a gov’t that couldn’t hold it position in the 1st place.

          Yup, they were trying to do this in S. Sudan while I was “vacationing”. The UN would love to disarm us, however, they don’t have the logistical strength take on the Puerto Rican Natl Guard much less all of us. Our own politicians and voter apathy is the concern.

      The relevant take-away for us is to be aware that the mindset and apparatus exists for the United Nations to “make things right” (by disarming people and helping them become good worker bees). I don’t see this as any immediate threat to our nation and firearm owners at this time.

    So my friends and I are buying ammo every month. Are we the only ones getting ready for a the next revolution? Keep your powder dry.

    1. avatar Perry says:

      You need not buy ammo. Collect range brass, then buy powder, primer, and projectiles.

      1. avatar enuf says:

        Only buy ammo on sale. I use the points on my Cabela’s Club Card, but even then only when on sale. Makes for some smoking deals that way!

    2. avatar Bernard says:

      There’s no point. All the US has to do to destroy the UN is simply cut off their funding. The UN only exist because of American tax dollars. We could make short work of the entire UN in only an afternoon, and still have time left over for drinks before dinner. All we have to do is turn off the waste of money spicket.

    Don’t believe everything you read, but be prepared for ANYTHING to happen at any given time….

  33. avatar Ogre says:

    If the UN was half-competent at carrying out the jobs specified for it when it was formed in 1945, the world would be a much more peaceful place and the money the American people pay to the UN would be money well spent. Unfortunately, the UN has proven itself as being as useless as teats on a bullfrog, and money we pay to support it goes primarily to support a bunch of self-important bureaucrats whose only job is to set up impotent peacekeeping forces (that do nothing to stop conflict), schedule yet more meaningless meetings, and to plan how to suck up more of our money. Get the U.S. out of the UN now!

        If you mean that they are good at wasting money and being inefficient, sure. But if you mean bad as in “they’re going to come deprive us of our liberties”, well, that’s very foolish.

        1. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

          I think the going theory is that if the blue helmets were to be sent in it would be more mercenaries from various unfriendly combat zones that would be more than willing to oppress Americans. That similar tactics were used throughout history doesn’t make it too outlandish but would require cooperation from our government at many levels to be possible let alone effective.

        2. avatar Bubba says:

          If our government were ever to allow such a thing to happen, it would immediately become illegitimate and subject to Constitutionally justifiable abolition by use of armed force.

    2. avatar Victoria Illinois says:

      The UN is responsible for lots of assaults of young girls in those poor war torn countries. They know what’s happening over there. The UN “soldiers” have taught the girls to trade sex for food. Those are the guys that should be strung up until the birds eat their eyes out.

      1. avatar Bubba says:

        Amen sis.

        Not much different from US college girls whoring themselves out on “Sugar Daddy” websites, then.

  36. avatar The Crimson Pirate says:

    I should apply for the job. I propose the best way to accomplish “the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons of combatants” is to import them to America and sell them to us cheap.

      Why settle for only half of the world’s gun’s in our borders.

  37. avatar Shawn says:

    Of course they’re looking to fill a position in New York. It’s where the UN is. This is a glorified desk job working with participating states. Real threats to the 2A here at home and you got to pimp bullshit conspiracies.

  38. avatar Sisted Twister says:

    Um, as much as the UN sucks, this is pure hype. This hiring bulletin is for ONE position, not to assemble an army of BLUE helmeted goons to seize guns door to door.

    The people who will be going door to door for Red Flag Day will be your local BLACK helmeted SWAT team, y’know, the one with the huge budget to buy Bearcats, MRAPs, helos, armored shields, full auto MGs, and K9s in matching armor.

    They will have a little piece of paper signed by a weirdo judge who lives far away, stating your wife/gf/manwife/tranny claims you slapped her and hate the govt and are dangerous and have a huge arsenal. THAT is what will bring the black helmeted goons, not the blue helmeted ones.

    If you care about your guns, be careful who you let into your bed.

    1. avatar Julio says:

      A huge budget isn’t necessary. The 1033 program allows excess military hardware to be given away to local police departments through the DLA. They just have to pay for fuel, maintenance, and parts—which are NOT cheap. Most departments jumped at the chance to take custody before realizing how much that would cost later down the road.
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1033_program

  39. avatar Miner49er says:

    “The United States is the largest provider of financial contributions to the United Nations, providing 22 percent of the entire UN budget in 2017 (in comparison the next biggest contributor is China with 12.5 percent, while EU countries pay a total of above 30 percent).[1] From July 2016 to June 2017, 28.6 percent of the budget used for peacekeeping operations was provided by the United States.[2] The United States had a pivotal role in establishing the UN.”

    All you guys making fun of conspiracy theories, just remember, at this point in time, we are deep into one of the greatest conspiracies ever in the history of America, thanks to democrats and their useful idiots…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    It’s also amazing to me, that the leader of the militia attacking our embassy in Iraq, was in the White House at the invitation of Obama some years ago. Now suddenly the media is screaming: “Trump’s Benghazi”. Isn’t that strange…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    Benghazi was blamed by the Obama administration on a video…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    The sons of famous politicians, Pelosi and Biden, along with John Kerry and Obama’s assistant secretary of defense and other U.S, politicians are all on board with Burisma, the Ukraine’s corrupt energy company… But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    Epstein dies in his cell…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    NATO decides to open up a “reintegration an disarmament” office in New York…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    Our enemies in the government say: “of course we’ll never come and take your guns”…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    Greedy liberals are making millions/billions out of global warming hysteria…But as you say, no such thing as conspiracy.

    Well, I say to you all, that being asleep at the wheel is the surest way to self-destruction.

  45. avatar Thomas Pruitt says:

    Great to repeat Infowars click bait. Hate to break it to you, but the UN headquarters is in NEW YORK, and that’s where INTERNATIONAL disarmament efforts are coordinated.

  46. When the u.n. starts patrolling, with weapons in my sight, in my area ,i will start killing them, and continue to do so, With their own weapons too. RANGERS LEAD THE WAY. Sissies stay home and watch😀

    “The one-world government types at the UN “strongly” encourage women to apply. Is this because women have unique skill sets that facilitate taking guns away from recalcitrant bitter clingers around the globe?”

  50. avatar Gene Ralno says:

    I cannot imagine anything more odious than a pack of foreign enforcers in blue hats on American soil. I wonder if the UN knows how close they came to having their headquarters stormed when they came as monitors of the American voting system. Recall it was Sheila Jackson Lee who demanded that they be allowed free movement, even where campaign signs are not allowed. Fortunately, little came of it. This may pass the tolerance mark for democrat hysteria. National colors? Temporarily, they might be red splattered on blue and covered with quicklime.

  51. avatar Chuckers says:

    President Trump. Get us the hell out of the United Nations.

  52. avatar Chuck Klasek says:

    I know where this is coming from and while it WAS in the spirit of re-integrating ‘child soldiers’ and others in far-flung war zones, it obviously wouldn’t fly here. Not by the time WE got done with ’em. (BY the way…it’s “eminent” domain, not “Imminent. BIG difference)

    The UN is a worthless pile of blue shite, and after the 1960’s, it just got worse – bloated incompetent and lazy, like the ‘ambassadors’ appointed TO it. No one’s ever paid their fair share (save us and the UK), they’ve never been anything but unwilling (and highly visible) targets in their deployments, and they’re generally a sad & sick embarrassment to the UN’s original ideal. I’m no Bircher, but it’s time for them to go away…one way or the other.

  53. avatar Ton E says:

    Besides speculation and UN HQ being in NYC. How does this affect American gun owners in anyway? Damn if you’re trying to convince people who probably aren’t threatened by a job posting alone. Try and provide proof.

  54. avatar Will Drider says:

    Perfect job for all those “moms demand action” folks, Shannon Watts STEP RIGHT UP. Get some Level IIIA ballistic protection before you going door to door confiscating weapons: people tend to dislike those who attempt to disarm them.

  55. avatar 1SG Retired says:

    It’s well past time to stop supporting this terrorist organization. We need to immediately stop paying for our enemies to attack us, and to boot them out of the USA. A great New Year resolution is to have the U.N. and all of its personnel ejected by 30 June 2020. Then spend 3 days cleaning and fumigating the property and reopening it as the new Headquarters of the V.A on the 4th of July 2020. Let’s call this the “Freedom 2020 Festival”.

  56. avatar Marilyn Camden says:

    No UN. Stop funding.

  57. avatar Djea3 says:

    POTUS has not done enough to end the problem of the UN. The UN is the main reason we have wars and terrorism. We need the UN off our shores, we need to continue to REDUCE the financial burden of the UN. We need to demand REPAYMENT for excessive payments made to the UN WITH INTEREST.

  58. avatar Donna says:

    We need to get out of the UN because they are invading our country and telling us what they want to do here. Read Nikki Haley’s book, With All Due Respect. She explains clearly why the UN is stacked against America . We need to move it out of the US and get out of it. They hate America and Israel but love our money. If governments do not support us, we do not give them money peruod.

  59. Yes…. So which department – entity is going to fly a drone / 830 Boeing into the UN bldg like was done on Tuesday 9-11-2001 ? Since Rockefeller donated the propery and neither NYC -NY state – USA owns the real Estate. Hmmm, could be designated as a Hazardous Waste Site and cordoned off ! EPA, lissen up, you got some work to write up now.

  60. avatar teri says:

    I remember first going on line in 2011 that it was reported they had 11 country UN forces on stand by here in the USA. They also have recruited and use MS13 and other gang members in their regular criminal activities. This is a decades old plan well prepared for. This will not be easy. NY is base, Virginia is the target. I have also noticed that the fema cams are on train lines like the nazi camps were. Also sat stations in close proximity and private gas stations as well. If Trump doesn’t take steps in this, then he is part of it. I don’t care if he took us out of the UN gun agreement. It’s just paper with out action. Start blasting Trump at whitehouse.gov with emails. We need him to be proactive in this now.

  61. avatar John Walker says:

    I have been against the UN since the Korean war. They have become a place that is corrupt, inefficient and lead by those who despise our way of life, our liberty, and our pursuit of happiness. They would trample our Declaration of Independence, our constitution, and our christian values.
    From what I’ve see the UN is a socialist organization dedicated to a one world government. Do we really need this organization on US soil?
    I think not!, send them packing to some remote island in the south pacific.
