Happy Election Day Anniversary, America. Was This Year a Success?

It’s been one year since Election Day 2016. How far have we come? What promises are we still waiting on? This year has been both better and worse than expected. The economy is on the rise, a Supreme Court justice who respects the Constitution has been confirmed, and Republicans say tax reform is on the horizon.

Glenn took a look at what President Donald Trump has accomplished since he was elected a year ago and reminded Republicans that they still have a lot of work to do on today’s show.

“If the GOP could actually cut the spending and actually reduce the taxes in a meaningful way, we’ll have a really, really good 2018 as well,” Glenn said.

GLENN: So happy anniversary, America. Happy anniversary. Today, President Trump celebrating 365 days in office. It's been an incredibly tremendous year, that's what he promised. Has it been an incredibly tremendous year? Probably not. But there's been some good things that I think we should mention. Trump has made great appointments. Neil Gorsuch. Betsy DeVos. Scott Pruitt. Probably most people would say the most impressive accomplishment of the last year is the economic landscape. Under Trump, we have seen a healthy and robust economy come flourishing back from the grave.

All three quarters of Trump in office have resulted in a 3 percent or more of GDP growth. Unmatched achievement, by any other president in our history.

That's significant. The numbers aren't fantastic when you compare them to the eight years of Obama's miserable 1.6 percent average.

Unemployment under Donald Trump has gone down to 4.1 percent. As of October's job report released on Friday. That is a 16-year low. Consumer confidence is skyrocketing. Hit 125.9 in October. The highest level since December of 2009.

The Dow Jones is up 29 percent since Trump was elected. Now, there's lots of things that I could say back and forth on all of them. But you do have to recognize, whether you like Donald Trump or you agree with all of these or not, these stats are true. They're hard, fast facts.

And that's good for America. We still have a long, long way to go. But some really good things have happened last year. And, you know what, if the G.O.P. could actually cut the spending and actually reduce the taxes in a meaningful way, we'll have a really, really good 2018 as well.

One of the big changes that has happened in the last year, and this is significant -- is the destruction of ISIS. We talked about it for a very long time, after we created it.

We talked about destroying it. This has been the one big change. Donald Trump destroyed it. Now, I highly doubt that ISIS would be destroyed. And I highly doubt our economy would have turned around with Hillary Clinton at the helm. But we'll never know.

And, by the way, I would like to recognize one other milestone, it's been exactly one year today that Hillary lost for the last time.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Why Eric Weinstein Is Finally Talking to Glenn Beck | Ep 93

Eric Weinstein is not a conservative, but he talks to conservatives because he says, more often, they're the ones who let him speak his mind without branding him (a Jew) a Nazi. He tells Glenn why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast. In the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol riot and President Trump's second impeachment, Eric and Glenn probe the historical, economic, social, and even scientific reasons for the events of the last week. They also tackle some of the hardest questions our country faces: What do we do about a power-grabbing Big Tech, a dishonest media, Wokistan vs. MAGAstan, and the destruction of American culture? How do we restore civility between the Left and the Right? How do we save the UNITED States of America? In an honest conversation that will stretch your comfort zone, Glenn and Eric show us where to start.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

Dan Bongino details behind-the-scenes 'SMEAR' against Parler

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually VALUES free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…
