President Trump awards Rush Limbaugh Presidential Medal of Freedom; Nancy Pelosi sulks

Two days ago, conservative talk-show titan Rush Limbaugh told his listeners that he’s been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

Stage 4 lung cancer means the cancer has metastasized (spread) throughout the body to other organs. Distressingly, the median life expectancy of stage 4 lung cancer is only around 8 months; the 5-year survival rate after diagnosis is only 4%.

Last night, at his State of the Union (SOTU) address, President Trump saluted and conferred on Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal are the highest civilian awards in the United States. Established in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy, the Presidential Medal of Freedom recognizes those people who have made “an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors”.

Demonrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who will be 80 years old on March 26, with her botoxed, many-times lifted, wrinkleless face, pointedly remained seated and refused to applaud.

Pelosi also showed her disdain by tearing up a printed copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

Earlier, when Trump walked into the House chamber to raucous applause from GOP members and chants of “four more years,” Trump snubbed Pelosi by refusing to shake her hand, turning his back on the House Speaker who led his entirely-baseless and blatantly-partisan impeachment in the House of Representatives.

In a rage, Demonrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI), Tim Ryan (OH) and Bill Pascrell (NJ) stormed out of the SOTU address. Other Demonrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA), Steve Cohen (TN), Al Green (TX), Hank “Guam would tip” Johnson (GA), Frederica Wilson (FL), and Earl Blumenauer (OR), boycotted the SOTU.

In his SOTU address, the “Great American Comeback,” President Trump graciously made no mention of the Democrats’ impeachment witch-hunt, focusing instead on his administration’s many accomplishments, policy goals and the eternal American spirit. He said:

“America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise and the America’s future is blazing bright. In just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny. We are moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago, and we are never going back!”

Callling every child “a gift from God,” President Trump also spoke out for the unborn, calling on Congress to ban late-term abortion.

Thank you and God bless you, President Trump.

Please pray for Rush Limbaugh.

Please pray for President Trump.

Please pray for America.

Pray for Rush Limbaugh, who has advanced lung cancer

This is awful, devastating news.

From AP via Page Six:

“There are going to be days that I’m not going to be able to be here. Because I will be undergoing treatment,” said the syndicated conservative radio host of “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” according to a C-Span rep in a tweet.

Limbaugh, 69, said he went to the doctor after experiencing shortness of breath and was eventually diagnosed.

He told listeners that he would be out for the next few days for treatment and hoped to return to the air Thursday, The Hill said.

“Those of you who are listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show now. Pray with us. Thank you. God bless you Rush Limbaugh. Love you so much Rush,” his producer, Bo Snerdley, tweeted.

Limbaugh, a buddy of President Trump, told listeners before signing off, “Every day I’m not here I’ll be missing you and thinking about you.”

He just signed a new “long-term” contract last month with a subsidiary of iHeartMedia, The Hill said.

There have been three times in my life when I had a premonition of death.

The first two times were of two friends, seemingly healthy at the time when I last saw them when I had a feeling they would not be long for the world. Sadly, my premonition turned out to be true in both cases.

My husband passed away last August. Soon after his death, I was listening to Rush Limbaugh one morning on the radio when, out of nowhere, I had a feeling that he wouldn’t be long for the world.

Since that feeling, I had tried to tell myself that I was being silly because Rush has longevity in his genes — both his father and grandfather had lived a long life.

So you can imagine my utter dismay when I saw the New York Post news just a few minutes ago.

Lung cancer often has no or few symtoms until it is advanced. Reportedly, Rush’s only symptom was loss of breath. That is why about 40% of people with lung cancer are diagnosed when their cancer is already advanced or stage 4, which means the cancer has metastasized (spread) throughout the body to other organs such as the brain, bones, or liver.

There are many variables (age, gender, general health at diagnosis, response to treatment, other health conditions such as emphysema, and where it spreads) which can affect lung cancer survival. That being said, the median (the time at which 50 percent of patients are alive and 50 percent have passed away) life expectancy of stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer is only around 8 months. The 5-year survival rate after a diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer is sadly only 4%.

Rush Limbaugh has been stalwart and unwavering in his support for and defense of President Trump. The loss of Rush to the conservative cause will be incalculable and devastasting.

Please pray for him.

Please pray for America.
