Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh shared an update on his health with his radio listeners on Friday as he is battling stage 4 lung cancer: “The chemo drugs are working.”

Limbaugh, who took several days off from his show, assured his audience, “I’m fine. I’m sitting here at my official home library desk, and I am fine.”

“El Rushbo,” as he is popularly called, explained to his listeners that the lung cancer he has involved a rate mutation of a gene that occurs only in 1% to 5% of cancer patients.

“Now,” he said, “ordinarily that would be very bad news because it would be something that maybe there’s no medicine for or that there’s no targeted treatment for.”

However, Limbaugh said the rate mutation is a blessing in disguise.

“It turns out it was good news because there is a clinical trial of a combination of chemo drugs that has been very successful in attacking this particular gene mutation in melanoma cancers,” he said.

The chemotherapy drugs Limbaugh is taking is part of a promising stage 2 clinical trial to treat the specific kind of lung cancer mutation he has.

“America’s Anchorman” noted that although the four weeks of the therapy went “great,” he had to stop the treatment because of the medication’s painful side effects:

I guess it got bad enough last Monday or whatever that we had to pull the treatment. We had to pull the treatment, and it was going to be just temporary for a week or two to see what would happen. I’m now taking drugs, steroids, to reverse the effects of the chemo drug.

The good news is that “the chemo drugs are working,” said Limbaugh, or at least they were until he suspended them.

“Trust me, it was working,” he said while explaining he has to have quality of life with longevity.

For the time being, Limbaugh indicated he will stop participating in the clinical trial of the chemo medication, but that he remains optimistic about his prognosis.

“I’ve currently suspended the treatment and we’re looking at alternatives, and there are plenty of those,” he said. “But I’ve gotta get the swelling down and get this pain taking care of.”

    Bella Pelosi, better known as Dracula. Sneaked in a 1 billion Dollar funding for Plan Parenthood (The abortion factory) and other things that have nothing to do with the Coronavirus bill. Evil and Devious indeed! Never let a crisis go to waste is one of the Demoncrat 10 Satanic Commandments.

    Wuhan Virus Bioweapon AKA: China Virus, Coronavirus weaponized by China and their treasonous Godless demoncratic Commie party and cohorts the fake media, academia, Hollywood, Millennials.RINOs..to crash the greatest US economy ever! And to take down the greatest president ever, President Trump!! Keep up the great work President Trump! 2020 and beyond! From the Patriots of a Commie Demoncrat free America!

    *SCENE 1 :
    The curtain opens: China becomes ill, enters a “crisis” and paralyzes its trade. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE II.*
    The curtain opens: The Chinese currency is devalued. They do not do anything. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE III.*
    The curtain opens:: Due to the lack of trade of companies from Europe and the USA that are based in China, their shares fall 40% of their value.

    *SCENE IV.*
    The curtain opens:: The world is ill, China buys 30% of the shares of companies in Europe and the US at a very low price. The curtain closes.

    *SCENE V.*
    The curtain opens: China has controlled the disease and owns companies in Europe and the US. And he decides that these companies stay in China and earn $ 20,000Billions. The curtain closes. How is the play called?

    *SCENE VI:*
    *Checkmate!*

    *Amazing but true*

    At first they were too prepared. Three weeks after the start of the roll, 14 days and a 12,000-bed hospitals were already under construction. And they really built them in two weeks.

    Awesome.

    Yesterday they announced that they had stopped the epidemic. They appear in videos celebrating, they announce that they even have a vaccine. How could they create it so quickly without having all the genetic information? Well if you are the owner of the formula it is not difficult at all.
    And today I just saw a video that explains how Den Xiao Ping gave the west a half stick. Due to the coronavirus, the actions of Western companies in China fell dramatically. China I just hope, when they went down enough they bought them. Now the companies, Created by the USA and Europe in China with all the technology put in by these exchanges and their capital they passed into the hands of China, which is now rising with all that technological potential and will be able to set prices at will to sell everything they need to the West. How are you?

    None of this could have happened by chance. China who cared that a few old men died? Fewer old-age pensions to pay, but the loot has been huge. And right now the West is financially defeated, in crisis and stunned by the disease. And without knowing what to do.

    Masterfully diabolic. It had to be the communists. |

    Adding to this, they are now the single largest owners of US treasury with 1.18 trillion holding surpassing Japan.
    An instrument that has seen the most rally

    One ☝ prospective & Analogy

    How come Russia & North Korea have Low or Zero incidence of Covid- 19 ?

    Is it because they are staunch allies of China

    On the other hand USA / South Korea / United Kingdom / France / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit

    How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus?

    China says that the drastic initial measures that they took were very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas

    Why Beijing was not hit ? Why only Wuhan?

    It is interesting to ponder upon.. right ?

    Well ..Wuhan is open for business now

    Covid – 19 needs to be seen in the backdrop of the arm twisting of China by USA in the trade war

    America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially

    Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China.

    China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world.

    So use the virus…to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities.

    I am sure Nancy Pelosi got a part in this…. to topple Trump….

    Lately President Trump has always been telling of how the GREAT American economy was improving on all fronts and jobs were coming back to the USA

    The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an ECONOMIC HAVOC.

    Nancy Pelosi was unable to bring down Trump through impeachment…..so work along with China to destroy Trump by releasing a virus.

    Wuhan’s epidemic was a showcase.

    At the peak of the virus epidemic….China’s President Xi Jinping…just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas.

    As President he should have been covered from head to toe…..but that was not the case.

    He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus….that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released

    China’s vision is to control the World ECONOMY by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE…..Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus

    Now China shall OWN the stocks of All Western Alliances and these countries will soon be slave to their NEW MASTER….. CHINA

    I am so happy to read the chemo agents are working and that there are agents targeted for your particular mutation. Keep praying through this whole process; God will carry you and your family through this.
