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.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

Will vaccinated Americans still need mask regulations by Memorial Day?

With Texas' recent elimination of state-mandated COVID regulations, Major League Baseball was back full swing in the Lone Star State; the Texas Rangers just held the first full-capacity sporting event since the start of the pandemic. In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
