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.

WATCH: The DIVIDED States of America: Is It Time for a National Divorce?

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
