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.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
