The answer to Matriciana's questions is that Harry Potter and Scholastic have the fingerprints of the Committee of 300 all over them. The Committee of 300 is a group of wealthy European elitists (aka the Olympians) who practice witchcraft and satanism. They appear to have control of Scholastic. Combined with its monopoly in U.S. public schools, this presents the Olympians with the power to introduce and tempt vast numbers of children into dabbling in witchcraft. Scholastic International acquired the French publisher Lagardere in 2000 which makes them the largest publisher of children's books in the world (see http://www.iwon.com/home/careers/company_profile/0,15623,177,00.html). This gives Scholastic the perfect opportunity to brainwash children not just in America, but across the globe.
As of 9/30/01, 74.95% of the stock was owned by institutional investors (see http://www.nasdaq.com/asp/quotes_reports.asp?symbol=SCHL&selected=SCHL). This is interesting because at least five of the top 10 institutional holders are agents of the Committee of 300, according to Dr. John Coleman (see his book Committee of 300): JP Morgan Chase & Company, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Asset Management, Schroeder, and Barclays Bank (see http://biz.yahoo.com/hd/s/schl.html). Some of the other companies listed, such as Massachusetts Financial Services (MFS), may also be affiliated with the Olympians but are not referenced in Coleman's book.
A look into MFS, the largest institutional owner of Scholastic, is interesting. According to Arnold D. Scott of MFS, it is a subsidiary of Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada, which in turn is owned by Sun Life Financial Services. Sun Life Financial was founded in 1871 and entered Great Britain in 1893. Interestingly, their webpage has tranlastions in French Spanish, and both dialects of Chinese. The CEO of Sun Life is Donald Stewart, who graduated with honors in Natural Philosophy from the University of Glasgow. He then joined Sun Life in London and qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (see http://www.bluebook.ca/index.html?id=3184). In February 2001, Sun Life changed their logo. A news report said (see google's cache of http://www.inq7.net/issues/feb2001/feb09/features/fea_2.htm):
"Making people aware that Sun Life of Canada is more than just a life insurance firm was one of the motivations behind the group's decision to change its logo and embark on an aggressive marketing campaign...From a simple logo with the letter 'S' set on a red background, Sun Life chose the symbol of the globe combined with the sun. Sun Life says it wanted a logo that would stand out...The sun was supposed to represent Sun Life's heritage--symbolizing growth, energy and integrity. The globe, on the other hand, represents the international reach and the diversity of people and products."
CEO Donald Stewart said of the change: "At the center of our identity is a symbol of a globe combined with the sun. The sun is a powerful universal symbol with a unique focus on growth, excellence and integrity. The globe symbolizes our international reach, speaks to our diversity and the value we place on partnerships."
It should come as no surprise then that the largest controlling interest in the company marketing out Harry Potter has a New Age/Wiccan type symbol for the company logo.
An examination of Scholastic's officials is most revealing. The following Scholastic officers have worked for companies and/or organizations which are listed in Coleman's book as being controlled by the Olympians (see http://yahoo.marketguide.com/mgi/biograph.asp?rt=biograph&rn=A0344). Director Ramon C. Cortines was at Stanford University and is a Trustee of the J. Paul Getty trust. Interestingly, in 1992 he was chairman of a Dept. of Education transition team for President-elect Clinton. Director Jack Davies is an advisor at AOL (not listed in Coleman but the NWO agenda of AOL is well-known), was VP of RCA-Europe and prior to that at GE. Charles T. Harris III was with Goldman Sachs & Co. Director Linda B. Keene was a VP at American Express. Director Peter Mayer was Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Penguin Group Companies. Director John G. McDonald is on the faculty at Stanford University. Maurice Greenfield, Senior VP and Chief Information Officer was a VP for 14 years with NBC.
A previous director in 1997, John Brademas, was on the board at the Aspen Institute and Texaco (see http://www.edgar-online.com/bin/people/doc_frame.asp?first=ALEXANDER+S%2E&last=ONASSIS&fna me=0000930413%2D97%2D000433&qlastname=ONASSIS&qfirstname=ALEXANDE R+S%2E&qftype=ALL&qcompname=&qcik=&searchpage=%2Fbrand%2Fyahoo%2Fpe ople%2Fdefault%2Easp&nad=0).
Scholastic also has had financial insurance with Prudential Insurance Co., which is a well-known arm of the Committee of 300 (see http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/729057/0000729057-98-000130.txt and http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/srch-edgar?0000866729).
There was also an interesting incident that occurred in 2000 wherein Donna Yun, wife of Scholastic officer David A. Yun (see http://www.edgar- online.com/bin/people/doc_frame.asp?first=DAVID+D%2E&last=YUN&fname=000104 7469%2D99%2D033426&qlastname=YUN&qfirstname=DAVID+D%2E&qftype=ALL &qcompname=&qcik=&searchpage=%2Fbrand%2Fyahoo%2Fpeople%2Fdefault%2Eas p&nad=0) was found guilty of insider trading by a federal jury. Ms. Yun had given inside information to a real estate co-worker who then used the information to gain a $269,000 profit (see http://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/lr17047.htm). The two were ordered to pay a $100,000 fine each and repay the $269,000 profit (see http://flabusinessinsight.com/Articles/Columns/Dateline/dateline53.htm).
Perhaps not coincidentally, Scholastic also owns Pokemon, a series of popular children's characters which is used to subliminally push NWO philosophy on children (see http://biz.yahoo.com/e/010824/schl.html). For example, Pokemon features made-up cartoon creatures which "evolve" into other Pokemon creatures. By this method, even kindergarten children are indoctrinated into evolutionary concepts before they could even being taught them in public school. The very word "evolve" has now become part of children's vocabulary as a result of the widespread popularity of Pokemon.
Potter author J.K. Rowling claims to have come up with the idea for Harry Potter while on a cruise. But given the fact that she is British, that Britain has rampant witchcraft and occult activity, and that the British monarchy are avowed satanists and Committee of 300 members, this seems to be just a cover story. Instead Harry Potter appears to be just one more battle in a long war by Britain and the Olympians on America's (and the world's) Christian worldview. This assault really accelerated with the British export of satanic rock groups to America in the sixties. When we look at the damage they inflicted upon our country by using similar cultural manipulative techniques such as promoting rock concerts/illicit drugs, we must realize that the Harry Potter brainwashing is but yet another even more powerful, satanic attack that we can only resist with a supernatural effort through God.
