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.

GOOD NEWS ~ SO FAR ~ ON DANIEL'S FINAL APPEAL

Last month I tried to explain how Daniel’s Last-Ditch Appeal would work. I concluded the explanation with some alternatives that could happen:

“The trial Judge has four or more options:

  • She can Deny It - thus ending all hope to overturn his conviction.
  • She can appoint an attorney to argue for Daniel’s appeal.
  • She can require Daniel to pay for his attorney to argue for Daniel’s appeal.
  • She could order it sent to an Appellate Court.”

Today I’ll bring you up to speed on Daniel’s Last-Ditch Appeal

GOOD NEWS SO FAR ~ ~ ~

Updates on Daniel’s Status of the 2255 Last-Hope Appeal.

  1.   The Judge received Daniels 27-page last-hope appeal on Sept 30, 2019.
  2.   The Judge did not deny it - instead she placed it on the Docket
  3.   She ordered the Feds to write an answer to Daniel’s Appeal by Oct. 29th.
  4.   The Feds responded writing a 9 page rebuttal to Daniel’s Appeal to the Court on Oct. 29th.
  5.    Now the Judge has given Daniel until November 12th to answer the Fed’s Rebuttal.     

               This brings us up to date.

                                      ~  ~ ~  ~ ~

What’s ahead Before Daniel will learn the results of this final appeal?  

      7.  Once the Judge reads Daniel’s Answer to the Fed’s Rebuttal she will give a written decision on November 15th.   In that decision she has at least the following options: 
                     
           A.   Dismiss Daniel’s Appeal
           B.   Hold an in court hearing with Daniel’s Attorney & The Prosecutor
           C.   Then she will make her final decision:
                          * Refuse His Appeal,
                          * Overturn His Conviction or
                          * Order a new trial.

As I wrote last month: “Please note that I’m not an attorney and may not be using the correct legalese - but I did the best I could to help you understand all this. Forgive me if I’ve made it confusing.
 
This is the first hint of good news in just about the last 10 years of my Son’s nightmare. I’m praying that when the Judge writes her decision on Nov. 15th ~ ~ ~ she’ll not dismiss his appeal - but order an in court hearing. (B above).

In the December Update I will give you the Appeal status at that moment.

The Holidays are fast approaching and I wish you and yours a splendid holiday season.

Reminder: Back in 2015 at Daniel’s trial the Court-Appointed Attorney refused to put on any Defense. That’s correct. When the Prosecution completed their case, the Judge recessed for lunch. After lunch Daniel’s attorney shocked everyone when he said, “Though my client will be furious at me, The Defense Rests.” He did not call any witnesses - Zero defense.

Thus Daniel was convicted without ever being able to call his witnesses. I guess that should be called “a one-half trial.

Daniel immediately appealed the conviction. Over a year later the appeal was denied by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and then one year ago the U.S. Supreme Court didn’t look at the appeal. The Supremes are only able to consider 1% of all the appeals they receive.

That is why Daniel’s last chance to overturn his conviction is by filing a 2255 Motion with the Trial Judge. This is what I’ve been explaining in the last few Daniel Updates.

Please note that I’m not an attorney and may not be using the correct legalese - but I did the best I could to help you understand all this. Forgive me if I failed you.

Status of the 2255 Last-Hope Appeal.

As you read this the trial Judge is just receiving the masterfully prepared appeal. She has four or more options:

  1. She can Deny It - thus ending all hope to overturn his conviction.
  2. She can appoint an attorney to argue for Daniel’s appeal as it must be argued by an Attorney.
  3. She can require Daniel to hire and pay for his current attorney to argue for Daniel’s appeal.
  4. She could order it sent to an Appellate Court.

Daniel is battling discouragement and who can blame him? He has worked himself to the bone crafting this appeal. Now he must  await the Court’s decision.

Please continue praying for him as you've been faithfully doing.

I know you folks want to be kept informed so in the next Update (November) I’ll explain the 2255 Appeal’s status at that time. I also hope my health will allow me to continue writing these Updates for you.

Thanks to each of you who have sacrificed to get Daniel this far. If the Court requires Daniel to pay for his Attorney ~ (Option 3 above) sadly Daniel’s Trust Account is still short to cover it.  Should you be able to help now - just a bit - it will really help Daniel.

Should the Court decide Daniel doesn’t have to pay for the attorney then any donations will be put into his Trust Account which will continue to help with the family’s needs until he is paid enough to handle it himself.

Dan and I finally  got  together  again. Since his probation forbids him from leaving Eastern Washington we met just inside it. I was able to drive up the Columbia River Gorge about 60 miles where we met for lunch and two games of chess. Who won? One game each.

It was so good to see my Son but boy does he look exhausted. He has been working day and night (literally) trying to earn a living and getting the appeal ready. To cap it off his daughter, Sabby, is just starting High School.

Many have asked…How Is Daniel’s-Last-Chance Appeal Doing?

As of today it is still being assembled. It was a massive case the Government used to convict Dan. Just imagine having to go through over 900,000 emails as well as all the other pieces of evidence. Daniel now has less than a month to get the new motion filed. It primarily pertains to prosecutorial misconduct...and may include incompetent defense by his trial attorney.  Your prayers are appreciated.  

Daniel asked me to update you on how I’m spending my “spare time.” I’ve been writing true stories, somewhat like “Chicken Soup for the Soul” (of course not as good :) .  None of these are borrowed. They’re all unbelievable wonders I witnessed  the Lord work for many individuals, couples and groups...and in my own life as well over my 4 decades of counseling ministry.  Some have written, “They’re so touching why don’t you put them in a book?”  But you can read them for free anytime at GodApplause.com    Currently there are about 25 true stories and more being added each week.

 As you all know my Son sacrificed nearly a decade helping humanity and was imprisoned for doing so. I only got to visit Dan three times in prison. But I knew you folks would want to be kept informed so I began penning these Updates. They are quite a bit of work but I intend to continue as long as my health allows. Thank you for your gracious appreciation.

At this moment I’m concerned as the clock is ticking on Daniel’s last-chance appeal.  He has only a short time remaining before his allotted time will expire. Thanks to those of you who have dug deeply and sent donations to fund the appeal. Yet, the total received is still shy of meeting both the known and unknown costs involved.

His new legal motion provides real hope for success. He'd no longer be called a felon - restoring his well-deserved good name. His 3+ remaining years of probation would be cancelled and his criminal charges blotted out. This is great news!   If he prevails, it could mean a complete reversal, which would mean the world to his family, to me and all of you as well!.
