No longer #1: U.S. not the fattest country in the world anymore

America has long prided itself on being the fattest nation on the planet. We love our fatty foods and ability to pound back grotesque amounts of food. Yet despite the best efforts of America's rotund (like Jeff Fisher) to keep us #1, we've been dethroned… by Mexico.

“We have lost our place as the number one nation on Earth,” Pat lamented. “We lost the title of being number one in a lot of things, but this I thought we'd hang onto for a while. I really thought we would forever be the fattest nation on Earth.”

TheBlaze reports:

And the reason for the surge in Mexican weight gain?

“Modern Mexicans’ urban lifestyle, rising incomes and myriad consumption vices have fed a seemingly endless struggle that’s killing thousands more of them each year,” Dudley Althaus writes for Global Post.

“Even as nearly half its people are poor and as officials launch a national anti-hunger campaign, Mexico by some accounts recently has replaced the United States as the chubbiest of the globe’s larger countries,” the report adds.

“Diabetes and cardiovascular ills spike, plus sizes cram clothing racks and Mexicans keep eating, eating, eating.”

“It's sad, and it might be your fault, Jeffy. Might be your fault,” Pat said.

We have all watched Jeffy’s dramatic weight loss over the past year, and now it seems his quest to get in shape may have cost America’s its title.

“Yeah, if you know Jeffy, Jeffy was potentially, I mean, would you say, Jeffy, do you know, the fattest man on Earth,” Stu explained. “But then he lost over 100 pounds, and I believe that's the difference. When you do the average, that's the difference between us and Mexico now.”

Beyond Jeffy’s obvious culpability, Stu had another theory as to why Mexico was able to take the crown – their delicious native cuisine.

“But I have to say when you look at Mexico and I mean, I don't know. I assume, you know, Mexicans actually eat Mexican food typically in Mexico,” Stu said. “And I know when I eat Mexican food, I eat 5,000 times as much as I do of any other kind of food. Like, I can't go to a Mexican restaurant without eating three weeks' worth of food. It's so good. I love Mexican food. And I've got to say, if I lived in Mexico and had authentic Mexican food available to me all the time, I would weigh 54,000 pounds… So I would be roughly half the size of Jeffy.”

While Stu’s logic makes quite a bit of sense, it looks like America may in fact somehow be to blame for Mexico’s weight gain.

TheBlaze writes:

Others blame the U.S. for exporting cheap and unhealthy foods.

“Urban Mexicans wolf down pizza, hamburgers and deep-fried chicken with abandon,” Althaus writes.

“Relatively cheap chips, cookies and sugary soft drinks pack the shelves of the convenience stores and mom-and-pop groceries that are as common here as cacti, even in poor rural towns and villages.”

Regardless of the reason, one thing is certain – American is no longer the fattest country in the world.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
