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 (StandByDaniel.com) 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 ~ StandByDaniel.com ~ will answer this query.

Daniel Smith | February Update

Feb. 2019

Late January and so far in February 2019 horrendous weather and nasty sicknesses are sweeping across our country.
And Daniel & family have really been impacted beyond belief. Daniel is weak, plagued by some virus as has been Karis.
They're struggling to get by each day...you know...just putting one foot in front of the other...and trying their best to keep it up.

BUT sweet Sabby hasn't done well at all. Her folks have rushed her to the emergency room over and over, spending hours and hours in the hospital. This last week the E-Room phoned Daniel and said "You need to bring Sabby back in ~ tonight ~ her blood test is really at a dangerous level." Very worried parents made the long drive again and then the doctor told them: "Sabby's liver enzymes are more than 12 times above the top of the scale."

As I write this update she is back home but really going through both physical and emotional trauma.

Since you folks really have included Daniel, Karis and Sabby in your personal family I knew you'd want me to get a hold of you and let you know about them. Your loving prayers and concerns are greatly needed right now. I knew Daniel would not be able to write his cheerful note to you awesome supporters...so I decided it was more important that I rushed this news to you. Hopefully they will all get their strength and health back soon and then Daniel will really want to write again.

I know he has that book to send out that he found so helpful in prison. Many of you also wrote asking him to write a heart-touching book about his last 9+ years. He's got that pulsing through his creative mind while also struggling to earn enough to support his family.

Plus now he has hospital e-room bills and all of that. I think each of us know what that's like. My last hospital stay nearly would have bought me a new SUV. :):) But the Lord is good and He takes care of each of us. Daniel's donation trust account is scraping the bottom with all this going on. Knowing you folks I am convinced you'll help as you always have when the occasion really needs it. 

Last Update ~ Daniel in his incredible thankful soul ~ wrote an unbelievable letter to you supporters. I am going to end this update by resending brief sentences Daniel wrote last month.

Dear Friends & Family,

Well, for good or bad, I've decided to share my story in a forthcoming book.  I admit, it's a bit presumptuous to think anyone would want to read it, but many of you expressed an interest and so it is time.  This will not be a typical, run-of-the-mill, self-aggrandizing memoir though, I hope.  We all know there are too many books in the world not worth the time to read, let alone write them.

But what excites me the most about this project is that it's my gift to all of you who supported me over the years.  Its a labor of love and its free.  I've been wondering for months what I could do to give back to everyone who offered their love, prayer, and support along the way so the blessing doesn't just stop with me.  Writing our story and presenting it as a gift is really only the tiniest way to say thank you and to acknowledge that the journey was never mine alone, but yours also, who walked beside me all this way.  It's your story as much as it is mine.

With that, I send you all my love and gratitude for standing by me all these years ... and for taking this amazing journey with me.  I hope you will all stay in touch!

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness!
Daniel Smith

Daniel Smith | January Update

Jan. 2019

DANIEL IS FREE AND HE ENJOYS BIRDS CHIRPING, FRESH AIR, AND CELEBRATING HIS JOYFUL MUSIC.

Daniel just wrote to me:  I'm FREE. The ankle bracelet is removed. Now I only deal with my Probation Officer.

DANIEL'S HAPPY NEW YEAR HEART MESSAGE FOR YOU FOLKS

Dear Friends & Family,

     I can't begin to adequately express how it felt to be HOME this Christmas, instead of talking to loved ones from a prison phone for 15-minutes @ $3.21 a call.  And I can't begin to tell you what it feels like to be starting out this new year a free man!

     During my time in prison, however, I learned that freedom is really just a state of mind.  I've probably shared already how, from time to time, I would look up at my surroundings and catch myself saying, "Oh yeah ... I'm in prison", as if it had slipped my mind.

     That's because, over time, I came to accept the whole ordeal as a gift -- the fulfillment of a long-desired (and much needed) retreat.  Where else can you find the time to sit and read 150 books you always wanted to read?  (Special thanks to those of you who sent them!)

     Want to know what books I read?  Or what my favorite one was, and why?  Want to hear more than just the "CliffsNotes" of this whole experience?

     Well, for good or bad, I've decided to share my story in a forthcoming book.  I admit, it's a bit presumptuous to think anyone would want to read it, but many of you expressed an interest and so it is time.  This will not be a typical, run-of-the-mill, self-aggrandizing memoir though, I hope.  We all know there are too many books in the world not worth the time to read, let alone write them.

     But what excites me the most about this project is that it's my gift to all of you who supported me over the years.  Its a labor of love and its free.  I've been wondering for months what I could do to give back to everyone who offered their love, prayer, and support along the way so the blessing doesn't just stop with me.  Writing our story and presenting it as a gift is really only the tiniest way to say thank you and to acknowledge that the journey was never mine alone, but yours also, who walked beside me all this way.  It's your story as much as it is mine.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  In a previous update I forgot the "2018" in the address so I'm afraid I might not have received some of your emails (please resend).  Oh yeah, and feel free to write and ask for my messenger ID or telephone number if you'd prefer to communicate that way.

     I have one more surprise.  Sometime in the next few weeks I will be randomly selecting one subscriber from the StandByDaniel.com email list to receive the one and only actual hard copy -- torn pages and all -- of my single most favorite book that I read over and over to myself and others while in prison.  Its about a two-hour read and worth every minute!  Yeah, I know, it's kind of a weird giveaway, but its all I have and, to me, it's worth a lot!  At least the winner will be able to say one of the books on their bookshelf went to federal prison and came out inked and alive!  =)

     So, I'll be announcing in the next StandByDaniel.com newsletter who the winner is, as well as the title, and sharing how it came into my life, and why I believe its one of the most important books of all-time for every child and adult.   You'll never guess it, so don't even try.  =)  Be sure to subscribe to the newsletter for your chance to be the new owner of this one-of-a-kind "tattered tome" and hear the cool story behind it.  I think you'll enjoy it.

     With that, I send you all my love and gratitude for standing by me all these years ... and for taking this amazing journey with me.  I hope you will all stay in touch!

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness!
Daniel Smith

Brief Comments from Dad

(1) Finances have made quite an improvement thanks to those of you who dug deeply in November and December. Daniel nearly got caught up. The only glitch is he still hasn't received his first pay checks as of today. Once the paychecks arrive he'll have most of the family's needs met. Still a little less than truly needed but hopefully his new Tec-employment income will steadily increase.

(2) The GoFundMe site, designed for those who are unfamiliar with his story, also received some appreciated donations over the holidays. Thank you for those of you who  sent the link to family & friends.

The GoFundMe link is:

We all can rejoice that Daniel now has a job and is knit tightly with his family again.  A fresh new life has come in all its splendor.  Your sacrificial love has been like a box of presents every step of the way. We pray that your New Year will be your best ever...as it will be for Daniel and his family.

If you can help Daniel at this crucial time...until his paychecks come and he can fully meet his and his family's needs please consider doing so. I thank you for all your loving support throughout these years.

Daniel Smith | December Update

December 2018

DANIEL'S  HOUSE IS FULL OF MUSIC

Some of you know that Daniel was (and is) a gifted musician:  vocally, arranging, key board, piano, and more. He held concerts throughout Washington State and  won the GMA 1997 song of the year (regional) and competed on a national level in Nashville during the Dove Awards in 1997.  He was offered a record deal but it eventually fell through.  . As the Bureau of Prisons still has him confined mostly to home ~ Daniel has set up his music studio. In the November Update he did the arranging for both Karis and Sabby's beautiful songs.

This month Daniel took to the studio to record a special Christmas Thank You song  ~ just for you, his supporter.  He and his daughter Sabby sing this together.  

ONE MORE MONTH OF BUREAU OF PRISONS CUSTODIAL MONITORING TO GO  ~ probably shortly after New Years 2019.  Finally then ~ ~  he’ll be free other than reporting to probation ~ for 4 additional years.

DANIEL'S HEART TALK TO YOU FOLKS & A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SONG

Dear Friends & Family,

I'll keep this update short.

This last week was my first Thanksgiving holiday with family in four years!  It was magic.  I dug up the old turkey brine recipe, Karis made her green bean casserole, Sabby made her macaroons with rose and orange blossom water, and I made root-beer-float cookies.  =)  We all broke from keto to enjoy the fresh rolls, cranberry and sweet potato casserole.  We had 13 for dinner and it was SO MUCH FUN!  The day reminded of me of just how much I have to be grateful for.

I have been trying to think of a way to express my gratitude to all of you with more than just words.  I don't have much to give yet, but I do have music.  So ... this week I took to the studio to record a special Christmas song just for you.  I asked my daughter, Sabby, if she would join me and she said yes!   So ... this is our early Christmas present to all of you from all of us, saying thank you, once again, for all your prayers and support.

Here's the link to listen online:

https://soundcloud.com/dvotino/thats-christmas-to-me-acapella-performed-daniel-sabby-for-friends-family-christmas-2018

If you'd like a copy of the mp3, write me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I'll email it to you directly!  I would love to hear from you.

Some potentially good news ... if everything goes as planned, I start work for a tech company this month.  There are a number of projects they need help with and I look forward to being of service.  I will still be able to work on other projects that are important to me, which I hope to share with you after the New Year.

Until then, I'm sending my love and wishing you all the most delightful holiday season ever.  For you, I am grateful.  Thank you.

With all my Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness
~ Daniel"
