Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Globalization is Back

“America is back.” So, what can we expect? Certainly more unemployment, more outsourcing, a further shift of wealth from the middle class to the ruling elite. Multinationals will be the beneficiaries. The US economy may surely decline. We might expect to see more Chinese Communist infiltration into US society as well as international governance.  

The Great Currency Reset may be harder to predict. An international crypto currency based on gold or other commodities, might be a more secure form of cash, but it would remove what little advantage the US still has in international trade. The World Trade Organization might attempt to foster greater international equality with its currency reset — again, at the expense of the US in general. 

For now, equalities may be safer to hold than cash, as long as the Federal Reserve keeps expanding the US money supply. Many hedge with Bitcoin, but Chinese investors more or less control that market, and its still awkward to deal with Bitcoin as a currency. In a sense Bitcoin is a bet on China. This of course is all speculation, but we need to be aware of coming change.

Plato’s Republic, book VIII described a democracy evolving into an oligarchy and thence a tyranny. — I hope not.

An Act of War or the End of Freedom

While rioters set fire to the streets of our cities, China conducts “Unrestricted Warfare “ against America and the West, without firing a single shot.

Globalization or Democracy 


I finished editing Globalization or Democracy over a year ago. I reported on both  the progression of globalism, and the economic war waged against America by China. The book further outlined the origins and abetment of our leadership in selling out the wealth of our nation, and exposed the resulting carnage. 


In looking back over the events of the last twelve months, however, the reality appears far darker. Espionage, bribery, blackmail and disinformation kindled a takeover of our media, our schools and our government. A growing Oligarchy appears complicit. A communistic idealogical subversion undermines our freedom with political chaos, propaganda and widespread censorship. 


I don’t think either political body wants this, but will they wake up to the war we have all but lost — perhaps not until shots are fired, or the People’s Liberation Army invades Alaska.

Early High-Titer Plasma Therapy to Prevent Severe Covid-19 in Older Adults

NEJM 2021 January 6 


Romana Libster, M.D. Argentina, Fundación INFANT

A year later and evidence based medicine, that is medicine by bureaucratic edict, only now publishes results that, I wager, every clinical physician knew or at least strongly suspected from the outbreak. The president’s physicians at Walter Reed treated appropriately and early. Why were physicians attempting early treatment punished, some even loosing their license or their jobs? If evidence based authorities assessed outcome by correct diagnosis and the experience of the clinical physician and the clinic, they might find a more efficacious treatment for their guidelines, but even then, the protocol would be outdated because medicine moves so fast. 

In the case of this pandemic, lives could have been saved. Convalescent plasma, Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, Vitamin D, C and Melatonin all found advocates. It would not be a secret to also credit the presence of a trusted family physician giving emotional support, mitigating fear, thus strengthening the patient’s immune system spontaneously from within by some ill defined neural-humeral pathway. Yes, early convalescent plasma works, but we knew that all along.

Gross Domestic Product and Horsepower

 Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve and politicians attempt to stimulate the economy by increasing the money supply by clever means. This is like pulling away from the stop sign with the gearshift left in high gear.  Nothing much happens.

RPM X Manifold pressure = Horsepower. 

Turnover X M1 money supply = GDP

Without sufficient RPM, stepping on thee gas not only strains the engine but the hoped for acceleration comes very slowly. The same thing happens with the economy. The perceived energy in the economy comes from the turnover, productivity and innovation. The money supply turns over many times in the economy in any given time, say a year, presently a little over five times. With a more energetic economy that turnover may exceed ten times. The Fed. Struggles to find a means of stimulating the turnover. Spending alone does not do it. You need productivity, jobs and discretionary income, both liquidity and RPM.

EmpIrical Proof

A new form of deductive logic entails the irrefutable proof of a negative by not looking. If you don’t look at it, “There is absolutely no evidence of its existence.”

By the same deductive logic, the investigator has no rectum, because he or she never looked. Therefore, by extension, the investigator is full of – what?

Communist Manifesto

 Ten Planks of Marx and Engel’s Communist Manifesto

Democracy, Globalism or Communism; pick only one. We progress from Democracy to Globalization to Technocracy to totalitarian Socialism or Communism. We seem to already be halfway there without even noticing. Dystopia, be careful what you wish for. Note the ten planks of Manifesto. Marx called it dialectic materialism, a formula for endless subversion. Dystopia entails loss of freedom, equality under slavery or death and full obedience to the state. Our independence, freedom and Democracy are still worth fighting for, but how? 

The burning debate is not Left or Right, but rather globalization or the Constitution, internationalism or nationalism.

1.     Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

2.     A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3.     Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4.     Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5.     Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly

6.     Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

7.     Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8.     Equal obligation of all to work.  Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9.     Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

10.  Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

Oligarchy and Pseudo Democracy

 If looking at the future, Bill Gates’ purchase of vast American farmlands, for shadows a return to an agrarian economy with cheap immigrant labor, all manufacturing in China or Asia and Chinese ownership of big tech. The ruling class as oligarchs under the guise of socialism, would further enrich themselves and institute a more totalitarian form of pseudo democracy to control descent and further idealogical reprograming. The big question, would the totalitarian oligarchy survive or would communism prevail as normalization and solution to the chaos with subsequent termination of the oligarchs? Think about it.

Political Medicine

 Most discouraging to see medicine become politicized, public health officials or others who take a political position loose all credibility as physicians. As the pandemic lead to the blame game, politicians without any medical knowledge jumped in trying to gain political leverage. Some of this political positioning cost lives. The politicized medical bureaucracy needs to get out of the way of credible clinical medicine. Http://

Interesting, why not say sooner?

RE: A Brain Surgeon's Perspective on Biden's Neuro Medical Status

For those of you who are worried about patient confidentiality, Biden disclosed the aneurysms in a report he filed before announcing his run for the Presidency.


First of all, I have had enough of the mainstream media! While I do not consider myself a political person, I am a practicing neurosurgeon with a background in cerebrovascular surgery, and I must scream "Foul!" on the media and here avenge the late Paul Harvey with 'the rest of the story' hidden from the American public!

How many of you know that Joe Biden has had 2 brain surgeries, one on each side of his head?

How many people know that Joe had a head full of blood after an aneurysm exploded in his head in 1988?

How many know that the resulting brain damage from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, as the blood breakdown products bathe the brain, are significant and permanent damage, let alone the compression and damage due to the jet of blood from the rupture itself.

Why has the media not asked for his medical records, list of medications, EEG, or at least an angiogram of his brain's blood vessels? Multi-aneurysm patients like Mr. Biden have a tendency to form new ones and are recommended to have an angiogram every 5 years; where is the report? Really, the NY Times couldn't do a piece on this? How about a CT scan to document what his brain looks like or verify he does not have hydrocephalus or a ventricular peritoneal shunt or seizure disorder? Where is the outrage?

The fact of the matter is the media conspiracy to elect Mr. Biden is unbelievable and wholly liable if he gets into office, while overlooking these significant medical issues. I mean, really, shouldn't there be some sort of medical prerequisite for the office and all of the stress it induces?
 Are we that desperate to install the first black female president? Shouldn't the first black female president be duly elected on her own merits rather than hiding behind a 77 year old sub-arachnoid hemorrhage survivor?

Love him or hate him, you do have to admire Mr. Biden for overcoming all these issues in the last 38 years but this disqualifies him in my eyes to hold the nuclear codes. Hell, in most states, he couldn't even get a driver’s license without a letter from a neurologist saying he was seizure free for a year.

Instead, we have almost elected him the leader of the free world and the keeper of the launch codes with no one knowing the truth, no one asking any health questions! Especially when he can’t remember who he is running against or who his wife is. Really, these are our choices: a subarachnoid hemorrhage survivor or a narcissist?

Whether you are for Biden or against him, please be honest enough to spread the truth about his medical issues before he's sworn in as our next president with no one knowing the medical issues he suffers from.

Unrestricted Warfare

A must read. Most of the election may be valid along with the outcome as many claim, but the smoke looks overwhelming. Like the flu, the odds of getting it are remote, but the consequences if you do get it can be sever.

Subversion, another invisible enemy, if present, threatens as well. We might better investigate the extent of China’s payments and benefits to American citizens. Follow the money! Look for the hacking! And read the extent of the PLA’s plans. If you still believe in American history and democracy, take a couple of turns and check your 6. It may be later than you think.
