In the wake of the disappearance of an EgyptAir plane yesterday, serial adulterer and author of Rediscovering God In America Newt Gingrich stopped by Fox News to have a chat about how to stop all the terrorism that has not yet been proven to be behind the plane’s disappearance. The Obama Administration (AND the Los Angeles Airport) have simply not done enough to prevent this sort of thing, he says, and they need to start doing what needs to be done. Like what, you ask?

Like, duh, testing all the airport workers to see if they believe in Sharia Law. Because one of the laws of Sharia Law is that if someone asks you if you believe in Sharia Law, you have to say yes. Just like cops pretending to be hookers have to do.

“But the idea that – we don’t even have the right standards. You know, the first test – and this is very hard to do – the first test ought to be, are we dealing with people who believe in Sharia and who want to impose Islamic supremacism? We don’t have any tests for that.”

What, exactly, would this test entail? Wave a piece of bacon in front of someone and see if they make a face? Say a novena over them and see if they burst into flames? Perhaps a Rorschach test? A physical challenge? Fill-in-the-blanks? A blood test? A breathalizer? Or perhaps something more traditional, like throwing them into water to see if they float, or simply asking them, “Do you now or have you ever believed in Islamic Supremacism?”

Of course, Gingrich notes that the OBUMMER administration would say that testing people for Sharia Law would be “Islamophobic and therefore inappropriate,” because they are jerks who secretly want everyone to be murdered by terrorists. But Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump are willing to do what needs to be done. And if that means they must personally strip every airport employee in the land down down to see if they have a third nipple or “witch’s teat” then SO BE IT.

Gingrich also had some words for former defense secretary Robert Gates, who criticized Donald Trump for immediately coming out and stating that the disappearance was terrorism-related, before that had been officially determined. ALL DUE RESPECT TO BOB GATES, Gingrich says that the popularity of Donald Trump proves that people don’t want to do things the “establishment” way anymore. Waiting for actual evidence is such an “establishment” thing to do, and that’s not how things are gonna be done now, in the era of Donald Trump. What? Do you expect TRUMP FANS to sit around all day waiting for “experts” to weigh in on things before yelling about Radical Islamic Terrorism? Heck no. What fun is that?

    Well Newt, since most guys like you profess to love Leviticus, which looks an awful lot like Sharia, I would “Frankly” say shut up.

    WTF, Newt? You used to not be insane. Stupidly far to the right, yes, but . . . WTF, Newt? What the ACTUAL fuck?

    • Tallmutha

      Careful, you’re saying the guy who said this used not to be insane:

      “If combat means living in a ditch, females have biological problems
      staying in a ditch for thirty days because they get infections and they
      don’t have upper body strength. I mean, some do, but they’re relatively
      rare. On the other hand, men are basically little piglets, you drop them
      in the ditch, they roll around in it, doesn’t matter, you know. These
      things are very real. On the other hand, if combat means being on an
      Aegis-class cruiser managing the computer controls for twelve ships and
      their rockets, a female may be again dramatically better than a male who
      gets very, very frustrated sitting in a chair all the time because
      males are biologically driven to go out and hunt giraffes.” Address, “Renewing American Civilization,” Reinhardt College (7 January 1995)

      • goonemeritus

        He got I point, I do love a nice ditch.

      • therblig

        so, do you drive the giraffes into the ditch in order to kill them?

        I don’t think the US has done trench warfare to any sizeable degree since maybe Korea, so why even wonder about ditches and having to climb out of them? Armoured warfare and overwhelming force has made that an antique for the US military.

    • Left Coast Tom

      When was he sane? I missed that.

    I think we need a test to see if politicians believe we are in the “end times”. I am not comfortable leaving the long term solutions of our nation to people who believe the world will be covered in rivers of fire by next Tuesday.

        It’s not funny anymore, is it? I’m seriously afraid, not just of a Trumpf presidency, but of the way he’s unleashed and given voice to the violent assholes. There were always enough of them to begin with, but finding out how many more were hiding inside their human suits is terrifying. I don’t think this country will be recognizable in 6-8 years.

    for a country with religious freedom, we sure want to control religions that aren’t chrisianist.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Here’s the rub: James Madison (you know, major mover in the writing of the Constitution, President of the United States, all around Founding Father extraordinaire) SPECIFICALLY used Islam as the example of what he meant when he authored Article VI, the “no religious test” clause.

      Oh, the ironing. It’s just bursting at the seams.

      • malsperanza

        Would love to know the citation for this. I found this, but it suggests that Jefferson, not Madison, was the more open-minded one on the religion clause.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          Madison was once asked by some contemporary Christianist if the “no religious test” clause applied to “musselmen” and Madison explicitly said “yes” right in the asshole’s face.

Ask the people at Midway or La Guardia about how all that chronic understaffing affects safety

    • malsperanza

      I was at O’Hare last week … 3-hour lines for TSA, 10% staff cut, and summer ain’t even here yet. Tell me how this is keeping our air travel safe.

      Also, PS: being a TSA employee is a grueling, low-paid job in which the public harasses you constantly, and if you accidentally blink and miss something, 400 people die. The thing those people need most is to be subjected to loyalty tests by an aggressive and hostile government. Yes, that will really help them do a tedious, exhausting job better.

        Not to mention how easy it will be to replace the staffers who will leave just because it’s such a shitty job, when they have to undergo a grilling about their fucking religion. Christ on a cracker, I’m tired of these people.

      • Courser

        I actually applied to TSA after 9/11. I thought it’d be patriotic, so this was back in 2012 probably. I hope they’ve changed it.

        Oh man, talk about fucking grueling! After you pass the initial screening test, you were invited to a FULL DAY of interviews and testing. Only *after* all that, you were told that you would start part-time only and there was *no* assistance with transportation way the hell out there. Minimum wage starting pay.

        I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement because they don’t want the bad guys to know what to expect. Fair enough, so I won’t go into any more detail. But if it’s still as shitty job as it was back then, I can’t believe they can get anyone with half a brain to do that job.

    Wait, who are we talking about again?

    Newt’s just trying to gail relevance in the 21st Century and failing.

  • ContextIsKey

    He knows of what he speaks, because he was turned into a Newt.

    • peekay

      But he didn’t get better.

    Or we could just ask immigrants if, as proof of their strongly-held belief in traditional marriage while serially adulterizing their serial wives, if they’ve ever served any serial wife with divorce papers whilst said serial wife is suffering near death in the hospital from cancer.

      Nah, they were smart enough to figure things out.

    It would be easier to screen television pundits and guests for Stupidity.

    -Alleged Military Career?
    -# of mistresses?
    -Loudmouth christian?

    If the answer is yes to three or more then don’t even let them in the building.

    • addison_da_wit

      Unfortunately for this proposed test, Bernie would have to respond in the affirmative to the first three.

      • Be Gin

        Doesn’t Senator Sanders have better things to do than get on TV and run his mouth?

        Like running for President?

        Like doing some actual good in the Senate?

        Of course he does!

  • mailman27

    Somebody once observed that Newty G was a stupid person’s idea of what a smart person sounds like. The passage of time has done nothing to dispel with that observation.

  • Why is newt gingrich?

    • Jonny On Maui

      Because of duality. As protons and anti-protons exist, so does the anti-newt.

      • ConnieHinesDorothyProvine

        Protons and anti-protons are why Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston have to turn their proton packs on the walking pile of marshmallows that is Newt.

        poor Lori, can`t find any good roomies, they all suck and she has to kick them out, daily. principled girl to, considering how much monies her roomies all seem to be making.

      Mention Gnut and Jody appears. How does that work? Leakage from the Griftosphere?

  • tegrat

    We spend billions on useless security measures for the means of travel of those who are privileged. Yet no one is looking out for the well-being of the Wonkettebago. Help us, Bernie…

  • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

    Some new evidence points to a possible electronics fire aboard EgyptAir. If that turns out to be the cause of the crash instead of the results of a bomb blast, a few right wing politicians are going to look really stupid. No, not their normal stupid, REALLY STUPID.

    • Rickyphoo

      I thought “right wing politicians” and “REALLY STUPID” meant the same thing.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Lotsa Venn diagram overlap, for sure.

    • Axomamma

      As if. OF COURSE Obummer would say it was an electrical fire, to protect his mooslum BFFs. Pfffffft.

    • Usedtobeyellerdawg

      My own personal theory: Electronics fire caused smoke in the cockpit. Pilots descended blind, and maybe without instrumentation, until they reached and altitude where, in desperation they broke open the cockpit window to try to clear the smoke so they could at least see. Not discounting the idea of a terrorist bomb, or even sabotage, but this is at least as credible maybe.

      • Thatsitfor Theotherwon

        I agree. I had two squadron mates bail out of an F-111 shortly after takeoff from Incirlik AB when they had an electronics fire in the cockpit. They could not clear the smoke and they could not see a fucking thing, including the 5″ ADI only an arm’s length away.
        Given that no group has claimed responsibility for a bomb on EgyptAir, this may not have been a terrorist act. Doesn’t matter to the souls on board, but it matters to me. I’d like to jam Donny Trump’s knee jerk vitriol up his ass.

  • kareemachan

    Newtie, give it up. You haven’t been newsworthy for quite a while, and this isn’t gonna help.

  • bubbuhh

    Food for thought. Most TSA workers make about a third more than fast food workers. TSA Supervisors make around 40,000 a year. Halp!!!! Our gubmint is being invaded by former fast food workers and security guards!

    • CATMAN

      Better than pre 9/11 where the private sector did the security with people paid minimum wage and the only qualifications were being human and breathing

      • bubbuhh

        Well U R right in sense. Pre-9/11 there was no security in US of A at all other than making sure the passengers were wearing clothes and had a boarding pass. It’s much better now that they take pichers of your underwear, sniff your shoes and randomly take your stuff for their own enjoyment. Evill villians never gonna think of a way to beat them security, like hijack a small small plane and load him up with explosives or drop a federal express jet on a selected place(GPS attached to a bomb’s controls is clever, no?) or simply load the suicidal passengers’ luggage with scent protected c-4 shaped liked innocent everyday items, even clothes.

      They’ll understand why comments aren’t allowed here.

  • ConnieHinesDorothyProvine

    I’ve got a better idea: test all political candidates to ensure that they aren’t delusional maniacs (understanding that this would eliminate much of our government).

  • Paul Tomlinson

    Who the f*** is Newt Gingrich?


  • Rickyphoo

    Someone is trying really hard for that coveted VP slot.

  • Bill Slider

    Sharia law is good when applied to Christian Republicans. Before these idiots complain about it, they need to read a history book or three. They were once great believers in barbaric punishment. Those who support The Donald still are.

  • PRUtoo

    Indeed, the popularity of Trump will relieve us all from that pesky due process and silly investigation nonsense before judgement is pronounced!


    let’s crowdfund Newt’s Moonbase idea–just as long as he is the first to go and the last to come back. Maybe Elon Musk will give us a discount on one of his used rockets

    You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you
    look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach
    down, you flip the tortoise over on it’s back. The tortoise lays on it’s
    back, it’s belly baking in the hot sun, beating it’s legs trying to
    turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. Then you cut its head off and shout “Death to America!”. Why is that?
    – Actual question from the Voight-Kampff-Gingrich Sharia Test

    • Usedtobeyellerdawg

      Because everyone knows Tortuga is a snitch.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Maybe we could just have all TSA employees marry and divorce at least two different people, because that would clearly show that they don’t follow Sharia law.

  • Aquaria

    I have never understood this bizarre hangup that conservatards have about Sharia law.

    It’s like they’ve never heard of Catholic canon law and ecclesiastical courts.

    Or Jewish halacha and Bet Dins (Jewish religious courts).

    Do we dare tell them about the major cities in the US that have adopted aspects of halacha by allowing eruvs to extend over several blocks or even miles?

    • phoenix00

      Because it was invented by brown muslim peoples, and brown muslim peoples are evil and to be hated to the end of the earth and back.

    • Shartiblartfat

      ALL religions and sects have “courts” or “sees,” to scare the people who believe in such things. If you don’t belong to their religion, or any religion, for that matter, they’re meaningless.
