New StandByDaniel Video: 'DANIEL RETURNS' (June 2018)

Who is Daniel Smith?

This Preview will bring you up to speed about a decade-long, Federal-storm-trooper assault on a humble, caring soul who sought only to help disease-stricken fellow humans worldwide.

Why Daniel Smith has become a hero for tens of thousands of suffering people throughout the globe: Daniel founded Project Green Life (PGL), an alternative health association that made the first professional grade MMS (Master Mineral Solution)  ~ making it available in over 160 countries between 2007 and 2011.

Out of the blue the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began warning Daniel that they wanted the distribution of MMS to stop - immediately. Following legal consultation, Daniel wrote the FDA explaining how MMS was improving the health of multitudes around the world and asked them why they were making this demand. Silence. Daniel sent the document again. Continued silence. Daniel repeated a third time.

Rather than responding, the FDA initiated a year-long clandestine reconnaissance mission for the purpose of secretly securing search and seizure warrants aimed at putting PGL out of business in one fail swoop. It became obvious that this pursuit by the FDA was another example of a plethora of similar militant assaults on other Alternative Health companies and practitioners and in truth was a part of the agency's ongoing war against health freedom. In Daniel’s case they threatened him with 38 years in a Federal prison figuring Daniel would immediately close Project Green Life and thus block the distribution of MMS ever again.

Even though hundreds of users of MMS wrote the FDA declaring praises for the efficacy of MMS the FDA continued and intensified their unconstitutional actions. Daniel was arrested and charged with six felonies along with his wife and two employees. For what you ask? Helping people to get well.

Following a mockery of a trial in which Daniel was forbidden by the Judge to put on a defense he was convicted and sentenced to 51 months in a Federal Penitentiary. Even with this travesty-of-justice punishment the Prosecutor argued with the Judge demanding Daniel be sentenced to Life in Prison.

As you look through this fact-filled blog ( you’ll suspect a scheming collusion between the FDA and gigantic International Pharmaceutical entities. Daniel was portrayed as a conniving, evil, greedy Snake-Oil profiteer. One Federal employee even said, "I consider you a Domestic Terrorist!" Really? C’mon. Get real.

Truth is stranger than fiction. Right? This blog ~ ~ will answer this query.

A Special Request from Daniel Smith

Daniel Smith Asks: Please Help Me...If You Can

Daniel’s three years of being in SeaTac Federal Detention Center is finally coming to an end. He earned early release because of his superb behavior. So on July 2nd Daniel will exit the Prison and enter a Halfway House in Spokane for five (5) weeks. He’ll be able to have visits with his family.

In mid-August he’ll be sent home wearing an ankle monitor. For five (5) months he’ll have a set curfew while enjoying some free movement around Spokane.

We all had hoped, wanted, dreamed and prayed for this release!    IT IS ONLY 21 DAYS FROM TODAY. FREEDOM!!!

This freedom creates an urgent need. Daniel needs help with the high cost of re-entry. A job to support his family, rent, insurances, transportation, health care, food, etc. Several of you folks made payments on his huge Court fine...but a chunk still remains of that for him to pay.

Will the Justice System help with his finances? The Justice Department says they designed programs to assist felons to re-enter society. But they were underfunded meaning that now zero grants are available in most states including Washington. Further the Department warns against seeking help from would-be-private scams abound.

So Daniel needs our than ever before. And knowing how you folks have stepped up to the plate over & over again I’m more-than confident you’ll do so again. Your past sacrificial giving, continuous encouragement and earnest prayers deeply touched Daniel and were (and are) appreciated beyond expression. The caliber of your heart for caring and providing for this dedicated man is beyond measure!

Daniel requests two (2) things.

(1) Please consider a one-time boost in your giving so he can succeed in starting his life all over again. It is tough for a felon to make it on the outside, but this courageous, sacrificial man will not be denied. Believe it. He is a proven winner!!

(2) Please encourage family & friends to participate ~ a GoFundMe site has been started to help Daniel. Please share this link:

Daniel’s Heartfelt message from Prison

Dear Friends & Family,

Just a quick note to let you know that finally, after three years, I am less than four weeks from walking out of prison! I'll be going to a halfway house first, for about five weeks, and then home-confinement for five months. I am through the moon, to say the least, trying now just to make the most of the time I have left to contemplate and consolidate all I've learned along the way. Its been an unforgettable journey of self-awakening that would not have been the same without your deeply touching support of myself and family along the way. I'll write again as I get closer to the door, but in the meantime, I just wanted to stop ... and thank each and every one of you with this little song: "How Sweet It Is" -- as performed by Julia Stone.

With all my Love,

Please look at a powerful new Stand By Daniel video:

From a special supporter, "Ask your readers to exercise their positive power of intention in Daniel’s favour. It can and does work."

Daniel Smith | May Update

May 21, 2018

The Supremes Have Daniel’s Final Appeal

Daniel’s Lawyer, who has been rejected in every effort to get Daniel’s conviction overturned, sent the final appeal May 4th. It was electronically submitted to the highest court in America: The Supreme Court. The frantic, endless and exhausting work is now done. It is now in a wait-and-see status as the Supremes receive around 8,000 petitions annually...but only consider about 80.

Questions From Supporters

"Why keep trying? The odds are stacked against Daniel."
If you were innocent and yet convicted wouldn’t you almost rather die than give up?

"Since Daniel is likely going to a halfway house this Summer won’t that make his efforts moot?"
It is just the opposite: would you rather face 4 more years of penal monitoring and forever bearing the moniker Felon...or have the guilty verdict thrown out?

"Should I keep hoping and praying about this final appeal?"
Ponder: Years back ~ a town in Oregon state elected its mayor by a whopping difference of one vote. One vote elected a mayor. Your one prayer has crucial value: "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results." (TLB)

Daniel’s Heartfelt message from Prison

Dear Friends & Family,

This month will mark three years in prison. Being only 48 years old, that's still only a small percentage of my life, and I'm grateful for all of it! I marvel at the whole journey.

I'll never forget three years ago -- almost to the day, on the eve of trial -- I received a call from my federal defender who said the government was offering a last minute "plea deal". They said if I would plead "guilty" to two counts of "felony misbranding" they would drop all other charges. However, they couldn't give me any idea what my sentence would look like or when I would have to begin serving it. I immediately saw two problems with this:

The first problem was I couldn't imagine telling a lie just to guarantee a lesser sentence. I knew this was a defining moment. Not only had I not "misbranded" MMS, I certainly hadn't done so with intent to defraud or mislead, and I wasn't about to stand up and swear I had, even if it meant less time in the pokey. What is a little more freedom if I have to live the rest of my life with a lie? The idea of being strong-armed to make the Government's job easier coupled with the tactics used to extort lesser pleas from my friends and family made me all the more resolved.

But the biggest problem was my daughter, Sabrielle, who was turning 11 that week -- the week of trial. I had already acquired, as a surprise, backstage tickets to a sold-out show of her favorite artist, Lindsey Stirling. I feared it might be our last Dad/Daughter Date Night in awhile and I couldn't bear to miss it. I subsequently rejected the Government's offer.

That weekend, after the prosecutor rested his case, after my federal defender rested without presenting a defense solely "for lack of preparation", after I was refused an opportunity to present my own defense in his stead, after the jury was sent home for the weekend before making its decision, I just put everything out of my mind and took my daughter to dinner and a concert.

I'll never forget it. She wore a brand new dress she and her mother had picked out that week for the occasion. It was a shimmering silvery-blue dress with blue sparkles that matched her eyes. I'll never forget how she lit up when she realized who everyone was standing in line to see that night. She had no idea Lindsey was even in town and hadn't bothered to look at the reader board when we parked.

We hurried past the line, showed our passes and disappeared backstage where we got our picture taken with Lindsey and sat for a private unplugged session. Lindsey did a Q&A with the few of us there. It was inspiring, but I'll never forget the concert... how Sabby leaned forward on the edge of her seat the whole night, her eyes as wide as saucers, just taking it all in, the whole stage on fire as Lindsey danced across it playing her violin. It was unforgettable pure magic.

I don't regret my decision for a minute. Had I "pled guilty" we would not likely have shared this memory and I would've gone to prison anyway in exchange for a lie.

This Monday, the 21st of May, Sabby turns 14. I can't wait to see her when I finally walk out the door. She's three years older now and becoming quite the young lady. This week she traveled across the state with her classmates to sit for opening arguments in a case pertaining to charter schools before the Washington State Supreme Court.

I think for this month, I'll dedicate, to all of you, Sabby's favorite Lindsey Stirling song: "Elements":

 Also, for those who enjoy Circque shows with silk routines, here is a video of our "younger" Sabby "On the Silks" in 2013:

Our petition for review by the U.S. Supreme Court was submitted on May 4, 2018. I'm told the Court grants review of less than 1% of the petitions it receives. Please send your prayers and good vibes. For now, we wait.

In closing, thank you from the depths of my heart for your continued love and support of my family.

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness!


How Dad Views Daniel

Today Daniel has been in custody for 5 full years. Two (2) years house arrest before his trial and three (3) years in a Federal Prison following his conviction. Thus this caring, compassionate and giving man, whom we all know was innocent and whose purpose in life was to help others, was quarantined by the "Justice" System. But...finally... a change is on the horizon!!

Summer 2018 is almost here and there’s a light ahead in the tunnel. The light is not an incoming train ~ it is Freedom!

If the Justice System keeps its word ~ my Son is to be released to a halfway house near his home in Spokane ~ sometime in July and shortly thereafter to his family home. This brings great joy, sad memories and colossal needs.

Great Joy: I am ecstatic that he will breathe fresh air every day, squeeze his beloved wife and daughter, visit family and friends, and maybe stop at a Starbucks on the way to another concert with his daughter.

Sad Memories: I’ve never been a grudge carrier so I can only be disappointed that the Federal Prosecutor wanted to crucify Daniel...sending him to life in prison. Even worse was when Daniel’s attorney stood and said, "Your honor my client is furious but I have decided to not put on a defense."

Her honor smiled and said, "Bring in the jury." I’ll never forget how Daniel stood and pled with her to "allow me to present my defense...I have people ready to testify...sitting here." Brusquely she thundered, "Denied." Daniel then requested he be returned to home custody until his appeal (filed that very day) was heard by the 9th Circuit Appelate Court. Her response was even faster: "Denied."

So, instead of sending him to home confinement, where he had spent the two (2) prior years, she had deputies immediately remove and cast him into the Courthouse jail. In her lightning hurry she denied each of us from hugging him goodbye. So, unable to even glance our way, he was rushed out of the courtroom ~ having been deprived of true justice and his Constitutional right to defend himself.

Five (5) months later, it was disheartening to watch what the Judge did, at his sentencing hearing. I handed her a 5,000-signature petition in which worldwide supporters begged her to not sentence Daniel to prison. She opened the bound petition and read only one comment and then slammed it shut...and immediately sentenced Daniel. Unbelievable! She ignored more than 5,000 supporters.

Yes, these memories are very sad to me. Yet I know my Lord used Daniel to help scores of Inmates, kept his heart optimistic...if not even cheerful and employed you supporters to place a canopy of love and care over him.

Colossal Needs: Sometime in July when Daniel transitions to Spokane he’ll face a herculean task that most of us would stress over if in his shoes. "I’m a felon now. Who will employ me? How do I earn a living to support my family, finish paying the balance of the large Court fine, walk a strictly straight and narrow path to please the probation officer...for four (4) full years, and somehow help others as they so desperately need someone to do?" Doesn’t it seem to you that for Daniel this will be like starting life all over again?

I’ve never overstated the financial help Daniel’s ordeal has required. But with this albatross of obligations ~ help is sorely needed now. After all, he and his family’s needs will continue while he remains in prison. Then when he is released it may take days, weeks and more likely tough months before he can adequately support his family. I firmly believe that we’ll all gather together to support him through this rebuilding time.

And for those who can help Daniel at this crucial time...

Daniel doesn't know yet but in September Daniel & Dad have tickets for a concert. Not just a concert but an incredible concert. Finally we can sit together again...the first time in over half a decade ~ and feast our souls as a gospel icon: David Phelps enthralls the audience. Here’s a link to get a taste of what we’re anticipating:
(More than 1,999,219 have viewed this song. PS: tickets are still available! :)

Well its time to thank you for listening to an old man’s remembrances but before I stop let me humbly thank the Lord and express: I will ever admire and love my devout Son as I am positive " ...all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans." (Rom. 8:28, TLB)

Daniel Smith | April Update

April 16, 2018

There's Just One Final Appeal Left For Daniel

2017 & 2018 were years when Daniel was told, "it is DENIED," in each Appeal Hearing by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. In a few weeks Daniel's Attorney will file the last possible appeal** ~ with the United States Supreme Court. It is hoped the Supreme Court Justices will overturn Daniel's conviction or order a new trial. We are praying the next news Daniel hears is: "it is OVERTURNED... defendant is released from custody." (** Technically Supreme Court appeals are called: a Petition for Certiorari).

President Trump?  Some ask: "Why not ask President Trump to set Daniel free?" Well, we have done that...actually several times...even to the 1st Lady and other White House staff. Previously we did the same with President Obama. Each attempt had thousands of supporters whose signed petitions were included. Result: NO RESPONSE.


A review by the United States Supreme Court is not an easy thing to acquire, but as Daniel said last month, "and by grace we may prevail." A recent news video of the storage section of the Supreme Court building showed huge stacks of these Petitions for Certiorari. Then an Aide said, "We receive about 8,000 appeals each year and we are only able to consider 80." 80 out of 8,000.
What are the odds? We're asking for divine intervention.


8,000 of these Petitions for Certiorari are received by the Supreme Court each year.  But they only consider 80 of these!

Daniel's Heartfelt Message From Prison

April - 2018.

Dear Friends & Family,

Greetings to everyone from SeaTac Federal Detention Center.  =)  Next month will mark three years in prison!  Already another month has gone by, which brings me closer to my family ... and to freedom.

Many of you have written and asked about my time here, so I will begin with that.

First, I am very blessed with a special position which allows me to drive inmates to various medical and release locations and also to work as an orderly for the prison's administration.  I am grateful for the trust that is given me, which affords the rare opportunity to get outside and feel the wind and sun on my face, and always leaves me feeling renewed.

While behind the prison's walls I like to read, write, and meditate (and play some chess).  I also like to walk laps (21 laps make a mile).  I meditate daily, although the noise can make it difficult.  I have read well over 100 non-fiction books -- mostly of a spiritual, scientific, or esoteric nature -- some several times -- and I listen to music on my Mp3 player that is available for download through the prison's TRULINCS system.

Music is such an integral part of my soul.  It helps me stay grounded and mentally "away" from here.  I usually dedicate a song to all of you every month, but I would love to hear some of your suggestions.  I like all kinds of music.  The system doesn't carry everything, but I am often surprised with what they do have.

A few people have written and suggested I write a book.  Its seems there are enough books about MMS and it doesn't feel indicated to dwell on the past, prison life, or political issues.  That leaves only my inner journey, one of learning to allow, relinquish and release, getting to know my own soul; one I would be happy to share.  If this is something that interests you, please let me know.

An update on the case: my attorney is still working on our petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.  We have narrowed down what we believe are our most "cert-worthy" issues, including the appellate court's denial of the right to a meaningful appeal and the district court's denial of the right to present a defense at trial.  The other issues are more legal and complex.  The petition is due on May 7, 2018.  By this time next month it should already be filed.

I never watch much television here but they played two of my favorite movies this week: Braveheart and The Lion King.  I was reminded of the message I have always loved from Braveheart: that no matter what we're facing, our hearts are always free; we just have to have the courage to follow them.  Indeed, every man dies, but not every man truly lives.

Then there is "The Lion King", a beautiful story of Manifest Sonship or, as some would call it, the hero's journey.  A favorite part is where Mufasa reminds Simba that he is his father's son and must take his rightful place in the kingdom.  Some of you will remember the line from the movie: "Remember who you are."  This was the first thing I saw scrawled on a jail cell wall when first arrested in 2013.  It was a great kindness in a terrifying moment, a gentle reminder that we are all on the hero's journey, destined to realize we are all Sons and Daughters of the Most High.

I didn't think I'd have a song to share this month but this portion of my letter compels me to share "Circle of Life", performed by Lebo M. and Carmen Twillie, followed by "Who You Say I Am", by Hillsong.   I hope you will pull them up and have a listen with me.

Carmen Twillie, Lebo M. - Circle Of Life

Circle of Life
"From the day we arrive on the
planet and blinking step into the sun,
there's more to see than can ever be seen,
more to do than can ever be done.

There's far too much to take in here,
more to find than can ever be found.
But the sun rolling high through the safire sky,
Keeps great and small on the endless round.

It's the Circle of Life,
and it moves us all...
through despair and hope,
through faith and love,
'til we find our place...
on the path unwinding...
In the Circle ... the Circle of Life."
Hillsong - Who You Say I Am

May we all "re-member" who we are ... through all the despair, the faith, hope and love...  May we find our way in our bid to return to Source and awaken that divine destiny of Sonship that sleeps within us all.

My family and I remain ever-blessed by your continued companionship - your prayers and support.  Thank you, from the deepest parts of our hearts, for your love, your friendship, your prayers, donations, and words of encouragement, without which we would never know such great depths of hope and love.

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness!

Dad's Concerns

This week has been traumatic as we had a death in the family (my wife's Mother). The hundreds of miles to the Hospice and days watching her struggles has been exhausting and emotionally draining. Thus I'm trying to not forget to include all-important concerns for you awesome folks. As briefly as possible:  (1) You're receiving this in Tax Payment week. I pray this won't diminish too much your gracious donation for Daniel and his family. (2)  It appears Daniel will be released to a halfway house in Spokane this Summer, Lord Willing. AWESOME news. This becomes of URGENT concern as his family is forced to make costly preparations for he'll be able to likely go home on weekends and then after a month or two be released to the family home. So they're moving to a larger apartment, need additional furnishings, provisions, food, personal necessities, etc.  A handful of Supporters have sent some of the financial help already...for which I thank them so much.  Still there are many needs that need to be met.

For you Supporters who can help with these urgent needs and his continued support for the upcoming months...

My soul deeply appreciates the sacrifices each of you Supporters, Prayer Warriors and Donators.  Further, I marvel at the graciousness and goodness of your hearts. In 75 years I've never met such a loving, caring and supportive group. It is not possible to really express how much you are appreciated or how touched I am by your warmth. One day when Daniel walks free ~ it will be worth it all.

The Story of Daniel’s Stand for Health Freedom (02-02-2015)

Please watch

In late 2007, when Daniel Smith became aware of an inexpensive and natural water purifying substance having a positive impact on Malaria in Africa, he left his career in technology and founded Project GreenLife in hopes to make a difference in the human health experience.

The effectiveness of this water purifier can be seen in the Ugandan pilot project video posted directly below.

daniel smith family

Daniel is facing 37 years in prison for helping save lives and defending our Health Freedom.  

After he helped tens of thousands of people all around the world, the FDA raided his organization, seized his assets, handcuffed and forcibly removed both he and his wife from their home in front of their eight-year old daughter, threw them in jail, threatened his family and slandered them in the media – all to demoralize them, taint any future jury, and decrease their chances of winning.

But Daniel has not given up.  He can still win – with our support. Learn more about Daniel’s story below and help Daniel win by giving whatever you can to the MMS Health Freedom Defense Fund today.*

*Information on year-end charitable tax deductions available upon request.

Please share this GoFundMe campaign and the YouTube video below on your Twitter and Facebook accounts.  Thank you for all your vital help.

This fight is our fight.  It is the fight of thousands of us who use MMS and of course people who may want to use MMS in the future… Please everyone, give whatever you can to Daniel’s MMS Defense Fund today because it is really the defense fund for all of us.” ~ Jim Humble

“Daniel Smith and his family need our urgent financial help to win this legal battle they’ve been fighting on our behalf for the last two years.” ~ M.H., Florida, USA

“This is not just about MMS.  Every person who cares about health freedom needs to understand how the outcome of this case will impact not only our own lives, but the lives of our children, and our children’s children.” ~ R.J., Colorado, USA

“Thank you for standing, Daniel.  We are standing with you to leave this mark on history.  Together we will help make a difference that will positively impact the entire world.” ~ R.C., Washington, USA

Your contribution will help make a major difference in the outcome of Daniel’s trial.  Help save this father-of-four from 37 years of prison and tell the FDA to stay out of our homes!

Malaria Meets MMS: Ugandan Case Study

Background (2007-2013)

Little did Daniel know that four years after launching Project GreenLife, it would turn his life – and the lives of everyone he loved – upside down. Much of these life-altering and traumatic events are already subject of various articles published by independent news sources like the U.S. Observer, News with Views and Thought For Food.

What has not been well published is that in January of 2013, nearly two years after the armed raids, asset seizures, and a host of constitutional infringements, Daniel and his beloved partner Karis, along with two others, were indicted (and arrested) in the USA on a trumped-up six-count indictment charging violations of near century-old draconian food and drug law – each facing up to 37 years in prison.

Shortly after the charges were filed, Daniel and Karis were arrested by FDA agents who entered their home in Ashland Oregon on an early Monday morning while waking their daughter for school.  Armed agents loomed at the foot of their daughter’s bed while her parents consoled her with their hands cuffed behind their backs.

Young Miss Sabby was forced to leave her home and all her friends at the Waldorf School in Ashland to travel back to Spokane Washington where she would not see her parents again for almost a month – the time the government would take to extradite her parents from Oregon to Washington.

Sabrielle – “Sabby”

A Call for LOVE: The Matter of MMS, the FDA, and Daniel Smith by Adam Abraham

What was Daniel’s “Crime”?

Between 2007 and 2011, Project GreenLife made various alternative health products available online.  One product in particular was the water purifier used in the Ugandan pilot project (seen above).  This product is referred to throughout the world as “MMS”.

ProjectGreenLife Website (2011)

No Warning Letter ever issued from the FDA for any product carried by PGL, including MMS.

However, in 2010, PGL’s attorney, Nancy Lord, M.D., was contacted by the FDA following a surprise “regulatory inspection” in which the agency related their dislike for the product based upon claims by FDA science officers that would later prove by experts to be false.  The FDA “asked” PGL to conduct a “voluntary recall” of all MMS.

As a precautionary measure, and in an effort to avoid retaliation by the agency, PGL effected the “voluntarily recall.”

Shortly after, PGL underwent a reorganization into a private member association.  Prior to the reorganization, Daniel wrote the FDA and asked if they had any legal valid objection to their making their products available to private members under the First Amendment Right of Association clause.  The letter was sent to multiple FDA officials stating clearly that PGL would do so only if the FDA had no objection.  The FDA provided no objection leading PGL to believe they had none.

Rather than be forthcoming, FDA agents began sneaking around Daniel’s home and other properties taking photos, going through trash, and attaching warrantless GPS devices to vehicles.  Daniel would later learn that the FDA was creating a dossier for the purpose of convincing a federal magistrate to issue seizure warrants to allow the FDA to seize all of PGL’s assets.

It would not be until late June of 2011 when armed federal agents came from all over the country to take part in a well-organized raid of three locations: Daniel’s home, a bottling facility, and a fulfillment company.  The FDA also raided Daniel’s and the Association’s bank accounts, effectively putting PGL out of business in a single day.

Surely if the FDA had a valid legal objection or were genuinely concerned about people’s use of MMS, they would have answered PGL’s letter, rather than sit by while PGL made MMS available to its members for another year, all the while secretly planning the raids.

FDA’s Goal: Make an Example of Daniel and Teach the Health Freedom Movement that Nobody Stands Up to the FDA

What Exactly is “MMS” or Acidified Sodium Chlorite?

MMS (Miracle [Master] Mineral Solution) is a simple solution of sodium chlorite dissolved in distilled water.

Sodium chlorite is perfectly legal to buy, sell, import, export, and possess.  It is still available to this day on Ebay, Amazon, and from scores of online distributors worldwide.  It has been marketed throughout the world for nearly a century, most notably for use in water purification.

When mixed with weak acids, such as citric acid, sodium chlorite is a precursor to a dynamic array of redox molecules effective in the eradication of yeasts, molds, fungi, viruses, and bacteria, all which thrive in aqueous solutions (including human body water) and are a leading cause of various disease symptoms throughout the world.

Sodium chlorite, properly acidified, contains no residual sodium chlorite, as this is all spent in the reaction. Hence, alleged “dangers” of sodium chlorite is a misnomer.  The resultant chemistry, if and when ingested, breaks down internally to oxygen, sodium, and chloride – all essential nutrients for the sustenance of human life.

The Politics of “Your” Health

The archaic laws and overbroad policies of the FDA, which unquestionably favor large corporations, allow the agency to arbitrarily define what would otherwise constitute natural and ubiquitous substances as “drugs” whenever the agency declares their “intended use” to “mitigate, treat, cure, or prevent disease.”

In that sense, the FDA has become an agency that maintains and enforces what is, effectively, a monopoly over human health.

The absurdity of this proposition should be almost immediately obvious and, for those interested, a more in-depth analysis of the politics driving the machinery is provided at the bottom of this page.

Your Health Freedom vs. Their Special Interest

It was no surprise then when, in June of 2013 (after the arrests), sodium chlorite suddenly received “orphaned drug status” in the EU for the treatment of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).  See Sodium Chlorite (NP001) Receives Orphaned “Drug” Status in the European Union.

It was also no surprise to find that clinical studies were already under way for the use of sodium chlorite (designated “NP001″) in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s.

Neither was it a surprise to find numerous patents – many based on clinical studies – for the use of acidified sodium chlorite in the safe and effective treatment of HIV, dermatologic and inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, cancers, and diabetic ulcers, to name a few.  See also, Immunokine designated “WF10“.

More recently, the U.S. military has turned to sodium chlorite to generate chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to fight the spread of dread Ebola.

On December 17, 2014, Genesis II reported the defeat of Ebola in Sierra Leone West Africa using MMS.

These late revelations merely confirm what Daniel Smith and others have known for some time, having themselves heard and been witness to thousands of testimonials and stories from all over the world.

While the FDA has had full knowledge of scientific studies and clinical data supporting the safe and effective use of acidified sodium chlorite for an increasing number of human health concerns, the agency along with the Department of Justice have together pretended that no such data exists – all the while referring to Daniel and his friends in the media as snake-oil salesmen in a coverup effort to demonize the personal use of acidified sodium chlorite.

This of course begs the question, just who are these agencies really working for?

MMS – 101 Household Uses

Sodium chlorite solution (MMS) has an untold number of household uses, not the least of which is to purify untreated well water or chlorinated city drinking water from carcinogenic THMs.

Chances are, you’ve already ingested acidified sodium chlorite if you’ve ever traveled to – or are lucky enough to live in – a city that already uses chlorine dioxide rather than chlorine to purify its water.   Is the FDA going after water municipalities?

Acidified MMS can be used in almost every room of a home… in the kitchen, to clean hard surfaces, meat, or store-bought vegetables; in the laundry, to eradicate odors; in the bedroom, to get rid of bed bugs; the bathroom, to kill shower mold and other germs; the basement, to get rid of mildew; and air ducts to neutralize mold spores.

The number of external uses for MMS acidified sodium chlorite far exceed the internal ones, but its the internal ones that pose the biggest threat to the pharmaceutical industry and are thus problematic for the FDA.

It doesn’t take long to see how Daniel and Project GreenLife, making a year’s worth of sodium chlorite solution available for pennies a day (as little as $10 a bottle) that consumers, in turn, could acidify for any one of a plethora of personal reasons, would awaken this less than sleeping giant.

“Daniel” vs. Goliath

Shortly after his arrest, Daniel Smith read a message etched into the cinder block walls of his jail cell, a message left by a former prisoner that read these simple words: “REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.


Daniel pondered what it meant to remember who he was – starting with his given name, Louis Daniel.  Louis, he knew meant “Famous Warrior” and Daniel, “God is my judge.”  With that, Daniel knew he had to fight.

Because Daniel lacked adequate funds to hire a team of lawyers experienced in FDCA law – something the government made sure of by first seizing all his assets – the moment Daniel was released from jail, he entered his appearance in the case “pro se” – representing himself as his own attorney.

Over the course of two years (2013 – 2014), Daniel researched and filed upwards of 100 pleadings in the form of motions, responses, and replies, attacking jurisdiction, prosecutorial misconduct, discovery and constitutional violations, and various procedural errors.  These filings are all available on the public record.

Not surprising, the government-paid defense attorneys (for co-defendants) filed little to nothing, seemingly waiting for a palatable plea offer to avoid having to try a complex case.  It has since been learned that upwards of 97% of all cases never go to trial for this very reason.

THREE FELONIES A DAY – How the Feds Target the Innocent, by Harvey A. Silverglate

In his foreword of Silverglate’s “Three Felonies a Day“, Harvard Law professor, Alan M. Dershowitz writes:

“Harvey Silverglate, an experienced and astute criminal lawyer, makes a compelling case that federal prosecutors are abusing their power by using the criminal law to prosecute law abiding citizens whose conduct is arguably covered by extremely vague criminal statutes that are capable of reaching acts which are believed to be lawful by those who commit them.

“These prosecutors threatened to indict underlings for conduct that is even further away from the core of criminality unless they cooperate against the real targets.  Because federal criminal law carries outrageously high sentences – often with mandatory minimums – these prosecutorial threats are anything but illusory.  They turn friends into enemies, family members into government witnesses and employees into stool pigeons.

“Silverglate believes that we are in danger of becoming a society in which prosecutors alone become judges, juries and executioners because the threat of high sentences makes it too costly for even innocent people to resist the prosecutorial pressure. That is why nearly all criminal defendants today plead guilty to “reduced” charges rather than risk a trial with draconian sentences in the event of a conviction.”

Licensed to Lie – Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice by Sidney Powell

“WHEN THE GUARDIANS OF JUSTICE BECOME THE PERPETRATORS OF INJUSTICE – Licensed to Lie is the story of the strong-arm, illegal, and unethical tactics used by headline-grabbing federal prosecutors in their narcissistic pursuit of power.”

Author, Sidney Powell, served in the Department of Justice for ten years in Texas and Virginia and has devoted her private practice to federal appeals for the past twenty years.  In Licensed to Lie, Powell leads readers through the disturbing missteps, cover-ups, malfeasance, and corruption of justice that have caused her to question the system she has been committed to for over thirty years.

“This book should serve as the beginning of a serious conversation about whether our criminal justice system continues to live up to its vaunted reputation.  As citizens of a free society, we all have an important stake in making sure that it does.” – From the Foreword by Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in his personal capacity.

Some Motions Filed By Daniel Smith

Over the last two years, Daniel has argued several of his motions before the judge.  Each time, under the guidance of those more experienced, Daniel’s level of confidence and presentation improved.  Seasoned attorneys commented that Daniel argued better than 90% of all other attorneys they’d seen.  Others agreed, Daniel had outargued the prosecution hands down. Nevertheless, the judge’s rulings always ended in one word: “DENIED“.

Where the prosecution faltered, the judge covered for the government.  Where the prosecution failed to argue, the judge argued for the government.  Where the prosecution filed false pleadings, the judge swept them under the rug.  When Daniel’s argument could not be easily overcome, it was omitted or liberally misconstrued to clear the way for a ruling in favor of the government.

This is the current state of our federal district courts in America.  The doctrine of Separation of Powers is an ideal that lost its way when the courts became embroiled in securitizing – and thus monetizing – the cases that it hears.

In summary, every attempt made by Daniel to obtain a just ruling was met with a clear and unmistakable demonstration of judicial bias.

Following one such denial, Karis wrote the following tender note to Daniel:

“I’m sorry the judge is so adversarial to you, specifically.  It’s not fair …  and I believe in my heart that you have the ability to see through it to a solution that really changes things for everyone.”

“You have become a warrior through all of this, and that is admirable, but remember that David had smooth stones and a soft heart.  Remember that your greatest gift in this world is your sweet heart.”

“I know this can’t be any help or comfort right now, but I suppose I’m just committed to reminding you of this over and over.  Who you are is not an angry, defiant, warring victim to the government.

“You are creative, visionary, generous, tender and loving.  Those are your five smooth stones.”  ~ Karis

Five Smooth Stones

Daniel’s Case Severed on Spurious Grounds : Co-Defendants “Plead Out”

On November 7, 2014, with trial less than 30 days out, after learning Daniel’s co-defendants had refused the government’s “plea offers”, the judge severed the case into two separate trials – one for Daniel and one for the remaining co-defendants – setting Daniel’s trial off by three months.  This effectively forced Daniel’s co-defendants into either pleading guilty to lesser charges, or risk going to trial in less than 30 days without Daniel – the only one preparing for trial.

The judge justified the ruling by falsely branding Daniel a “sovereign citizen” (the top domestic terrorist threat in America according to the Department of Homeland Security), asserting that Daniel’s co-defendants would be “prejudiced” if they had to go to trial with him.

Watching their attorneys do little-to-nothing for almost two years and the judge deny every one of Daniel’s motions in favor of the government, Daniel’s co-defendants were effectively forced into pleading guilty to lesser charges in order to avoid having to go to trial virtually alone, where the stakes were high and there were no guarantees of a fair trial.  They were told by their attorneys their pleas would likely mean no jail time.

As Harvard Law professor, Alan M. Dershowitz, pointed out, defendants in similar situations eventually “plead” not because they believe they have done anything wrong, but because the government effectively extorts from them a “lesser” conviction by threatening a heavy prison sentence and never seeing their families again.

As the prosecutor (Christopher E. Parisi) admitted to an attorney for one of Daniel’s co-defendants at the beginning of the case, “We know [your client] is not as culpable; it’s really Mr. Smith we’re after.”  This was in spite of charging her with 37 years as well.

Daniel’s Trial Currently Set for March 3, 2015

Daniel’s trial is now set for March, 3, 2015 – less than 90 days away.  The government has access to unlimited resources.  Daniel requires financial assistance to consult with highly experienced counsel and to pay for other legal expenses, including expert witnesses and transportation of witnesses from various locations around the world.

Experts say that Daniel’s case is winnable for several reasons that cannot be discussed in open forum.   Dr. Mary J. Ruwart wrote something about Daniel’s legal challenges in a 2010 article entitled, The FDA Wants Jurisdiction Over Your Kitchen!

Voir Dire – Questions the Government Intends to Ask Prospective Jurors

When selecting a jury, both parties are given an opportunity to ask questions to help identify and eliminate jurors that may exhibit a bias.

The prosecution has submitted a set of revealing questions it intends to ask the jury lending insight into the heart of this prosecution.

“1.  Do you believe the FDA protects the public health by making sure drugs are safe and effective for their intended uses?”  

If you answered NO to this question, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  This is in spite of the fact that statistics show 290 people are killed every day by FDA-approved prescription drugs.  Other statistics show that someone dies from FDA-approved drugs every 14 minutes.

“2.  Who here believes that a person who wants to sell a new drug to people as a cure for diseases should get FDA approval first by showing that it is safe and effective?”  

If you answered NO to this question, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  See what the UK thinks about FDA approved drugs vs. non-FDA approved supplements here; and how more than 60,000 people died from taking Vioxx alone – a drug the FDA found to be both “safe and effective”.

“3.  Do you believe that consenting adults should be allowed to buy and sell alternative medicines without interference from the FDA?”  

If you believe this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury – or people like these men and women testifying before Congress.

“4.  Who thinks that the government cannot be trusted to protect the public health?”

If you think this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  This is in spite of the fact that even the prestigious Harvard University Center for Ethics has found the FDA cannot be trusted.

“5. Do any of you believe that the FDA cares more about drug company profits than the public health?”

If you believe this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  This is in spite of the fact that even the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics (2013, Vol. 14, No. 3: 590-610) published that since 1906, heavy commercial influence has compromised legislation to protect the public from unsafe drugs and that the authorization of user fees in 1992 “turned drug companies into the FDA’s prime clients, deepening the regulatory and cultural capture of the agency.”  See Institutional Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and the Myth of Safe and Effective Drugs.  The prestigious journal further writes, “unless this corruption of regulatory intent is reversed, the situation will continue to deteriorate.”

“6.  Do any of you think that the FDA has blocked public access to effective medicines for improper reasons?”  

If you think this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.   This is in spite of evidence that the FDA does in fact block effective medicines.

“7.  Who agrees with the following statement: regular vaccinations protect the public against the spread of illnesses and diseases like chicken pox or measles?”

If you did not agree with this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  This is in spite of the tremendous weight of evidence that vaccination is a fundamentally flawed science and causes more harm in our society than good.

“8.  Who here believes that children should not be required to get vaccinated in order to attend public school?”

If you believe this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.  Perhaps the most telling of all the questions, the prosecution here obviously believes that one’s right to not have themselves or their children injected with a neurotoxic cocktail containing heavy metals and foreign disease matter has no place in our society.

“9.  Does anyone here think that the government should not put fluoride in our drinking water?”

If you think this, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury.   This is in spite of copious evidence that fluoride is a poison that decreases the IQ of adults and children.

“10.  Would any of you have difficulty finding someone guilty if she committed a crime because she believed she was helping people?”  

If you answered yes to this, the prosecutor definitely would not want you on the jury.

In other words – if you are an informed, thinking, compassionate human being, the prosecutor would not want you on the jury!

What if Daniel Loses?

If Daniel loses this case, he could spend up to 37 years in federal prison.  In turn, the FDA will use its victory as a precedent to launch a campaign against resellers of sodium chlorite solution worldwide.  PGL was selectively targeted by the FDA to set an example.

MMS and sodium chlorite are still available today on Ebay, Amazon, and from scores of distributors throughout the the world; but not for long if the FDA gets their conviction.

Daniel is standing not only for his family but for all of us in the health freedom movement.  With the right legal team, the right experts, and a well-prepared defense, we can all win.  Without these, we all lose and Daniel goes to jail.  Any one of us could be next.

This is your opportunity to make a difference.

As the 1992 Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential Candidate, Attorney Nancy Lord, M.D., said on June 6, 1994 in closing argument in the famous case of FDA v. Roger Sless:

“Tell the FDA that you want them to leave Dr. Priestley and all of her colleagues in the supplement industry alone.  Tell the FDA to go back to Rockville, Maryland. Tell them to take their guns and their badges with them. Tell them that the only thing in this trial that isn’t safe and effective is the FDA.  Remember what Dr. Priestley said.  Those guns are loaded.  Somebody could get hurt…”

A Letter from Daniel to Supporters

“Dear friends, words cannot express our family’s gratitude for all your prayers and support in the last seven years – particularly in the last three.

In 2012, many of you gave to a fund collected by Genesis II and/or the U.S. Observer, and many of you have continued to send support personally since.  Thank you.

Thousands of you, from all over the world, sent sworn declarations, some directly to the grand jury foreman, care of the prosecutor who, as it turns out, deliberately withheld them from the jury – though the government admits receiving them in a recent filing.  Nonetheless, thank you.

While the government’s allegations have tested our strength and resolve, it has been your continued and often unsolicited support that has reminded us we are not alone.

I realize I have been off-radar for a considerable amount of time. This has, in part, been due to sheer exhaustion.  When the government has marshaled considerable resources against you, it can be hard to get out of bed some mornings.

Its also been difficult because the prosecutor dragged my friends and family into harms way so I have felt compelled to keep a low profile so the government did not retaliate against them.

I am reminded as I type this email, I am wearing a government issued monitoring device, which has been married to my ankle for the last two years (a form of house arrest – a condition of my pre-trial release).

I’m attaching a photo of this clever device, which assures the government I am safe and sound in my home every night between 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M.  In the beginning, it insured that I never left home at all – not even to the grocery.   Other than keeping me from going swimming with the kids, I hardly notice its there anymore.  This device communicates with an alien-looking GPS-device that sits on top of our piano.

A lot has changed in the MMS universe since 2011, but the challenges we face in the health freedom movement are not limited to MMS.

There are some who would say that, since its inception, the FDA has abused legal process to limit the availability of all manner of safe, effective, and affordable alternatives to allopathic medicine.  Never has the “business of cancer”, for example, been so well documented as in the case of Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D.

Burzynski: Cancer Is Serious Business (Trailer)

Attorney Nancy Lord, M.D. once argued in her closing of the famous Roger Sless trial:

[Start quote.] “The idea of government control of medicine occurred to two people — Benjamin Rush, George Washington’s personal doctor and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and Thomas Jefferson.

“Benjamin Rush warned: ‘Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship… To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science.  All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic… The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom.’

“The Founders guaranteed that we would remain free of government interference in our choice of religion.  When the founders wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they knew that government would try to dictate religion, because it always had.

“But in spite of Dr. Rush’s prophetic warning, the right to freedom in our choice of health care is not part of the Bill of Rights.  The founders never imagined that a trial such as this would ever take place in America.  Because they never thought the federal government would even attempt to control what we keep in our medicine cabinets and kitchen cabinets.  There was no such thing as the FDA until 1906, when the Pure Food and Drugs Act permitted the government to seize dangerous substances.  Then in 1938 they required that safety data be submitted for evaluation.  In 1962, all of those products and any new ones had to submit data on effectiveness and wait until the FDA approved the drug before it could be marketed.”  [End quote.]

Friends, 2015 will be a decisive year for all of us. Ultimately, our success depends upon our ability to gain support in this eleventh hour.  We have reached the end of our own resources, but have so much more to accomplish in the next 90 days.  Although we are on the homestretch, we still need substantial funding to see this through.

Many of you have helped us before, and this has made it possible for us to fight the battle up to now.  If you’ve ever thought of contributing more to help preserve our right to health freedom, now is the time.

The results of this campaign will determine not only my own family’s future but the future of MMS, and help establish an important trajectory in the health freedom movement.  Please stand with us in solidarity at this critical time.

I hope to write more of the journey soon, and to give those who remain interested, a glimpse into the countless miracles that have sustained us – no doubt, because of all your prayers and support.

Thank you for everything.

More About Daniel and Karis

Daniel and Karis founded Project GreenLife in 2007, a vision that began in 2004 when Daniel’s biological mother suddenly passed after being poorly diagnosed – left to starve on a hospital bed in the advance stages of cancer.

When Daniel inquired regarding the hospital’s inattentiveness to his mother’s nutritional requirements, her doctor replied, “I eat Twinkies and drink Coca-Cola. I’m a medical doctor.  I know nothing about nutrition.” Daniel would later learn that many practicing MD’s never receive more than an hour of nutritional education during medical training.  This launched Daniel on a course that eventually led to Project GreenLife.

Daniel and Karis have four children, two girls, two boys (ages 10-22), and one grandson.  Karis is a natural healer, versed in various modalities including Massage, Directed Breath and Matrix Energetics.  Daniel and Karis home-schooled all three of their children for their early years.

Daniel’s first love has always been music.  You can hear him perform one of his songs here:  Peace Be Still

Politics of Sodium Chlorite (continued from above)

The archaic laws and overbroad policies of the FDA allow it to arbitrarily declare less novel (and thus less patentable) substances “drugs” whenever the agency decides the “intended use” of the substance is to “mitigate, treat, cure, or prevent disease”.

The absurdity of this proposition should be almost immediately obvious, for this suggests the agency may convert, for example, a standard household toilet into a “medical device”, for the purposes of regulating, or Vitamin C for the treatment of scurvy into a “drug”, water for the treatment of dehydration the same and, invariably, water purification drops such as MMS into a “drug”, because these all “prevent disease” in one way or another.

In turn, the law declares that any interstate transfer of such a device or substance (or any component thereof) absent a near half billion dollar right-of-passage fee to the agency (i.e., a “drug application fee”) to be an “infamous crime” – that is, if the agency should find a technical error in the labeling such to declare the article “misbranded”.

Not surprisingly, it was the pharmaceutical companies that first lobbied Congress for such high barriers to entry – the purpose of which to keep “the little guy” from entering the market with products that could take billions from publicly traded companies.  This is the lifeblood of the FDA and the trillion dollar sickness industry that props a failing world economy.

In short, it is the “public policy” of the FDA to protect “public health”, which really means protecting publicly traded companies from potential losses.  In this sense, the FDA is fulfilling its prime directive perfectly when it suppresses affordable alternatives, but it does so at the expense of your personal health and freedom.

Please give today.   With your help, we can achieve a successful outcome in this struggle we all share against this modern day Goliath.
