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.

I've always praised you folks for helping Daniel when things are tough. I've also told you I won't ask for help unless the need is urgent. We're there today.

His account is now almost bone dry. I'm praying we can help him meet his current requirements since his family is really struggling today.

But...Good News is ahead. It looks like his work will finally be paying him enough in February to where he can finally be self-sustaining by March. All his patient, industriousness is finally going to be rewarded.

For those of you who have been following the status of his final appeal. Daniel had to have his final paperwork in on Nov. 12th. Then the Judge was to rule 3 days later ~ on Nov. 15th. She has not done so. Today is the first day back after the New Year recess for the Court. Will she rule this week?

A criminal defense attorney wrote explaining the response time for a 2255 Judge's decision. "2255 actions can take a long time for the courts to rule on. Unfortunately, there's no time limit on the courts to rule on them and the due process implications, such as your right to a speedy trial, don't come to play in the 2255 context. Good luck with your case."

After Daniel is self sufficient by March I'll try to continue sending out monthly updates for you folks ~ to keep you informed about his future creative pursuits and the final decision of the Court. I've sincerely enjoyed getting to know you and will miss you once we don't have these exchanges.

Please help this last urgent need..

In November I explained what the Court had left to do. Daniel filed his Rebuttal to the Fed’s Opposition to his Appeal in time on November 12th. The Judge stated she would issue her Ruling on Friday, November 15th. She has not done so. Today is the first day back after the Thanksgiving recess for the Court. Perhaps she’ll issue her decision today.

So, as a reminder to you folks let me go over what options Her Honor has with Daniel’s 2255

Appeal:

   A. She can Deny Daniel’s Appeal outright; or
   B. She can Order an in-Court Hearing with Daniel’s Attorney & The Prosecutor; then
   C. She can make her final decision:

  • End his appeal by denial; or
  • Overturn His Conviction; or
  • Order a new trial.

As I’ve mentioned, 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.  

So I hope you like Paul Simon’s, The Sound of Silence, because now we start the Christmas Season with only those lyrics...since there's no decision from the Court. There is an old adage, “No news is good news.” I’m praying that is what is happening now.

Thanks to your generous love gifts Daniel's family's November was most special. From purchasing food, a car repair, household necessities, house rent and utilities paid it concluded with a Thanksgiving Honey Baked Spiral Ham.

Your thoughtfulness not only made the whole month of November wonderful for Daniel & his family but also made this month extra special for me knowing you helped him so wholeheartedly.

Daniel may soon finally have some funds coming in from all his hard work. They probably will start early in January.

I’m hoping we all can pitch in just a little bit to secure needed funds for them to complete this calendar year. I know you folks have made all the difference to get them this far.  Also ~ ~ Feel free to send a Christmas Card, Letter, Poem ~ ~ ~ whatever greeting you want and I’ll forward them to Daniel, Karis and Sabby. That’ll make this season extra meaningful.

After two 5-day Intensive Care stays this year I’m very thankful to still be sharing with you and still hugging my wife, Daniel, 3 other sons and 2 daughters, 9 grand children and one great-great grand daughter. I feel blessed!

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.
