This article was spotted by E.G. and passed along, and I need to talk about it, because my antennae are pulsing with suspicion, and my nose detects a malodor wafting through events.  Mr. Putin, it seems, has declined an invitation to be present during the current G-20 summit  hosted by Indonesia:

Russia's Putin won't attend upcoming G-20 summit in Bali

Needless to say, the speculation abounds on why Mr. Putin is not attending. There are internet rumors that he has begun to suffer the effects of Parkinson's. But the article offers a more plausible explanation from Indonesian President Joko Widodo and conference security chief Panjaitan:

“It has been officially informed that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin will not attend the G-20 summit, and will be represented by a high-level official, and this has been discussed by President Joko Widodo and Putin in previous telephone conversations," Pandjaitan said after meeting security officials in Denpasar, the capital of Bali.

“Whatever happens with Russia’s decision, it is for our common good and the best for all of us,” added Pandjaitan, who is is also the coordinating minister of maritime affairs and investment. He said earlier that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will lead the Russian delegation.

Pandjaitan did not know why Putin decided not to come but said “maybe it’s because President Putin is busy at home, and we also have to respect that.” Pandjaitan confirmed the same reason may be keeping Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy at home as well.

The article then cites recent Russian military reverses in Kherson as being perhaps the central reason for Putin's non-attendance.

That does, indeed, make some sense, because the reversals are bound not to help Mr. Putin's position at home:

Putin’s decision not to attend the summit comes as Russian forces in Ukraine have suffered significant setbacks. Russia’s military said it will withdraw from Kherson, which is the only Ukrainian regional capital it captured and a gateway to the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula.

The article also notes that Mr. Bai Den Jo will be meeting with Mr. Xi Jinping in Bali, in a meeting the former will doubtless be getting his marching orders since the cutout method of communication, Hunter's laptop, has been taken out of the mix.

There are, however, other explanatory possibilities for Mr. Putin's non-attendance.

I am one of those Ukrainian narrative skeptics. I'm just not buying the idea that Russia has suffered some sort of vast defeat in the Ukraine. One reason I'm not buying it is my age. I grew up in the aftermath of the Deep State murder of JFK, and watched as Lyndon Johnson sank the USSA deeper and deeper into the Vietnam quagmire. I remember the endless press conferences and briefings from Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and of General Westmoreland, Chief of all US forces in Vietnam. I remember the confident CBS news broadcasts with the aptly surnamed Walter Cronkite  (Krankheit, German: "sickness, illness") talking confidently about body counts, that we were killing much more of the enemy than they of us, and so on.

Then came the Tet Offensive, and the supposedly on-its-knees enemy struck a blow that doomed the American effort in Vietnam. The "narrative" unraveled before our eyes, every night, on television. America beat back the offensive, to be sure, But the fact that the offensive was launched at all gave lie to the carefully crafted, media-spun narrative. Even Krankheit could not spin it any more.

So, yes, colour me "skeptical" about the West's narrative in the Ukraine, especially since the collapse of FTX and what it is beginning to suggest and reveal about the American role in all of this. I have no doubt that the Ukrainian people are fighting doggedly and determinedly.  It is after all, their country that's at stake. I just hope that they wake up and realize that they may have bet on the wrong horse, whose modus operandi has been to enrich oligarchs - Syngman Rhee in South Korea, Nyugen van Thieu in South Vietnam - devastate countries, and eventually lose wars and leave vast amounts of material and ruin behind.

Which brings us back to Mr. Putin's non-attendance in Bali. I rehearsed all that stuff about Vietnam because, as I said, I'm not buying the narrative that the Ukraine and its Western backers are winning. It's a war that, from the start, the US and NATO have made no secret of backing for what they hope is a "regime change" in Moscow, and a step along their long-sought goal of dismembering Russia. So  my suspicion is that Mr. Putin's security services probably have learned information - which they're not releasing presently - that his life may have been in danger had he decided to go to the summit. If that's the case, if the other dons at the table have assented to a hit on Don Putin, then one may expect a payback in kind to eventually come...

... and the bad thing is, with the current incompetence of the Western leadership, the Dons may order other hits, and blame it all on Russia...

See you on the flip side...

    Parkinson’s my eye… I’m also somewhat skeptical about Russian reversals in the Ukraine being very significant. My money is on the security services having gotten wind of a potential “hit” or someone fearing some kind of palace coup, or similar high-level insider political chicanery, if Putin were to be absent.

    >So, yes, colour me “skeptical” about the West’s narrative in the Ukraine, especially since the collapse of FTX and what it is beginning to suggest and reveal about the American role in all of this.<

    Well, maybe this will remove all doubts: "As the situation became increasingly dire, Sullivan & Cromwell and Alvarez & Marsal were engaged to provide restructuring advice and services to the Debtors."
    That appeared in an article in Zerohedge titled: ""This Is Unprecedented": Enron Liquidator Overseeing FTX Bankruptcy Speechless: "I Have Never Seen Anything Like This""

    Afterall, a top notch outfit like Sullivan & Cromwell, Allen Dulles' old firm, supports the idea of a "certain context" to this whole thing….. or am I just being a conspiracy theorist?

    Right from the start, I had a feeling this thing was going to be pinada of deep state entertainment.

    I hope FTX's new CEO/liquidator, John Ray, knows he might be in the middle of a real jackpot.

      It looks like your intuition was right — the FTX op sure seems to involve a whole lineup of corrupt bigwigs and influential financial malefactors. Even Blackrock was a shareholder in FTX.

    The Iliad – that Tolstoy compares his “War and Peace” to – is a circumscribed narrative, symbolised by the shield of Achilles.

    Likewise, the pyramid is also a circumscribed narrative – which basically any compass is, when used as a time-compass. (Isaiah 19:19)

    Further, the dual concept of temporal interval & shift (Elohim-Yahweh), does point towards circumscription of the year.

    The conclusion is, that man himself is a circumscribed narrative, that incarnates spatial realm, and so is Scythian Russia in the world (wer+eld).

    The West has been a Crime Syndicate for centuries but we shouldn’t be dragging the title Don through the mud, the brightest are not as stupid to commit dumb crimes like these.

    Excellent analysis, with a bit of astute prophecy as well with this last statement you made, “…the Dons may order other hits, and blame it all on Russia.” Although Putin is no saint, and one can even throw Trump’s name into the equation, there is one fact we should keep in mind which is that the world needs a few of these men to keep the really bad, and truly evil men from running roughshod over the good folks all the time.

      Yes well said. I couldn’t agree more with all you’ve said here.

    First off, assassination comes to mind.
    Two, what a symbolic location. Just think of the 1965-66 mass killings, a million admitted to? For what? A very good reason? To transition to the New World Order? Just think: Now than can discuss the new transition; rebranded, The Great Reset.
    Thirdly, Putin is siding w/the industrial capitalism system. The G-20 is siding w/Financial capitalism. aka, the Rentier Economy. You’ll own nothing; and rent everything from the >.0001%[or, even less].

      Yes, Good old Walter Cronkite.
      Trusted reader of government press releases[by way of CIA?]?
      Made his bones by keeping public unaware of JFK assassination as an inside job?
      AS then the U.S. has no reliable trusted public voice.
      At least now; more & more people are pointed fingers at the U.S. press for not doing their job. Trillions are at stake; not to mention all the B9ill of Rights.
      Soon, if not now; there should be an immersive popularized journalism simulator game where players use a wide variety of narratives to change public perspectives in different directions. It could be called, Soma For the Masses. Objective, to increase the happiness and complacency of the global population by W.E.F. establishment “Climate Change” standards.

        My sister, who worked at NASA KSC for 35 years after a stint with the FAA in Seattle and then Stapleton Airport in Denver followed by a brief stopover in Huntsville, Alabama, met Cronkite and interchanged with him a number of times during launches said he was the most aloof, nasty person she had ever met at the Space Center, but that he was very smart as opposed to Dan Rather who she said was completely insane as well as being a lightweight. Yep, dear old Walter.

      Loved the ending of “hits’ being blamed on Russia.
      False Flag “hits”?
      A t1t for tat, of falling dominoes[high value targets on all sides]?
      I wonder if “they’ll” want to pull that trigger?
      Talk about “blowback”!

      What’s black[s] & white[s] and read all over?
      High-value targets bled all over the globe?.
      Will the hoi polloi be shedding rivers of tears – for these “caring” elites?

    «Nothing is accomplished in haste. It’s not difficult to take a fortress, but difficult to win a campaign. And for this you need not to storm and attack, but patience and time,» Field Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov said in the Leo Tolstoy classic “War and Peace”.

        Basically, the Russians engage in warfare between tea times, and now its tea time, with a dash of lemon…

        It is difficult to understand for westerners, but time runs differently in Russia. It flows like the river.

        Perhaps Mark Twain, while river rafting the Mississippi, had a similar mind, of a not so different Huckleberry.

        Tolstoy’s novel “War and Peace” transcends time, into spatial dimension.

    I don’t even know what to think of Westeners and sanity? A full blown war would be suitable right about now with that FTX debacle, one should think. But then again, is a deversion even needed? In those crypto circles they still blabber on how blockchain is impervious to hacking when managed right?! It just needs good regulation?! I suppose that regulation will come from the same fiends that set up the money laundering caroussel and fleeced so much from the common people it’s hard to believe the heist took place in the first place. Plowing and buiding on the technical railroads of the enemy is a logical fact now for the average Westener. It can only lead to doom but alas Westeners and the Ukrainians seem to prefer to learn it the very hard way.
