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.

Just before Christmas I excitedly wrote, "Day 534 (Nov. 14, 2016) opened a new segment for this gallant warrior...his Appeal began. The Appellate process to overturn Daniel’s conviction is finally actually underway." Hope was finally budding...or so it seemed.
Today is Day 596 (Jan. 12, 2017) and the Appeal is on hold because the Appelate court (1) has refused to respond to a simple request by Daniel’s Attorney; and instead (2) has granted the Prosecution an-unlimited-extension-of time to respond to Daniel’s Appeal.
As my soul cried out this isn’t fair. It isn’t right. It isn’t just - I pondered: Why have hallowed words been ignored, man-handled and spat upon by our Criminal Justice System? "Justice delayed is justice denied!" said William E. Gladstone in the late 1800s. That’s more than 200 years ago. We can fly to the stars, manipulate DNA and communicate globally in seconds. But one critical flaw still hampers, humilates and overwhelms sincere and honest hearts worldwide. Justice is unjust.
Scottish poet Robert Burns might well have been also referring to Justice when he wrote, "The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry." He only lived 37 years before his death in 1797. If he could witness Daniel’s case (and thousands more judicial cases) ~ the atrocious scandals called Justice he would turn over in his grave where he’s been for more than three centuries.
One survivor of the holocaust wrote: "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." - Elie Wiesel.
Back at SeaTac Federal Detention Center Daniel is nearly beside himself knowing he is missing his youngest daughter’s life, Karis’ companionship and holding his grandchild. Parents are aging. Friends are ghosts. Freedom is a memory.
Please don’t say, "Oh what’s the use." Please don’t stop hoping. Please keep protesting. Please keep supporting Daniel. Please keep helping the ongoing needs of his family, his battle and pray unceasingly.
Emily Dickinson’s poetic thoughts seem fitting right here:
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”

Please Note: It is not possible for Daniel to have his own bank account while in prison ~ that's why, I his father, receive it for him. To be deposited for Daniel's and his family's use it needs to be made out to Larry Smith.
