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 | March Update
March 11, 2017
See Personal Message From Daniel below.
NEWS FROM THE APPEAL’S COURT:
The 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals finally dropped their two legal road blocks and permitted Daniel’s attorney to file the huge appeal (hundreds of pages). He filed it on Feb. 14, 2017.
The Court ordered the Prosecutor (Government) to file their answer to Daniel’s appeal by March 14, 2017. BUT the Prosecutor begged for more time and the Court granted them until May 1st. Once the Government files against Daniel’s Appeal on May 1, 2017 then Daniel’s Attorney has until May 15 for any response.
So, focusing ahead to mid-May, the $64,000 Question is Will the appeal be decided shortly after May 15th? YES OR NO?
Well ~ the Appellate Court can decide to speedily approve or deny the appeal; or they can sit on their hands for as long as they want.
Please pray for the former. Their eventual response may result in any one of a variety of outcomes: viz., Overturn the Conviction; Deny the Appeal; Order a New Trial; etc.
Today, March 11, 2017, Daniel has been wrongly jailed for 654 days.
BACK AT SEATAC FEDERAL DETENTION CENTER:
Daniel has been deliriously feverish for more than a week...mostly stayed in bed. One person wrote asking: "How he can be so sick ~ isn’t he taking his MMS?" Inmates can NOT take MMS or any non-approved item. The Bureau of Prisons strictly enforces this prohibition.
Now that he is well Daniel continues to work as a chaufer for other inmates or whomever the Prison assigns him. He gets to transport the person to verious places such as medical appointments, to the Train or Bus Depot, Airport, etc. He is one of only 2 such inmates allowed to do this. What an honor! He is able to taste freedom each trip until he returns to SeaTac Prison. Sadness of a jailed lonely man who pleads "Please don't forget me, because the possibility of that hurts more than being in this prison."
DANIEL WROTE YOU A NOTE:
"Dear Friends and Family
This is Daniel Smith. I’m writing from federal prison where I will have been now for two years this coming May. I wanted to write to express my gratitude for all your continued support along this journey, without which I may have given in to much despair. This time has been exceedingly good for me, and I am eternally grateful to have had so many friends along the way; all your postcards, letters, books, photos, encouraging words... continue to bring me smiles, hope, and the reminder that I am not alone. Thank you!
Thank you also for your continued support of my family, especially Karis and Sabby. Your prayers and financial help have continued to bless and give them more hope than you can imagine. Sabby is now 12 years old and more than half her life has been over-shadowed by our struggle with the federal government. We are looking forward to a Grand Reprieve.
Speaking of Reprieve, if you haven’t already, please consider signing and sharing the petition to President Donald J. Trump to stay my sentence pending the outcome of my appeal. Mr. Trump has the authority to do so under the U.S. Constitution and this would return me home to my family while we await the appeals process. Here’s the Link:
A word about my appeal: The government has stated that it will file its response to our opening brief by May 1, 2017. However, we are informed that without either the facts or the law on their side, the Ninth Circuit will likely reverse. The appeal makes clear, for example, there was never even probable cause for an indictment to begin with, having failed to allege the essential elements necessary to comprise a single crime. It could take many months, however - possibly the remainder of this year - just for the Court to return its opinion.
Until then and after, I am exceedingly grateful for all your continued support. Special thanks to my father, Larry Smith who just had a Heart Defibrillator implanted, to Jim Humble, Mark Grenon, and you, my friends from all over the world who continue to believe and stand for truth in spite of unending adversity. Thank you all for your prayers, your signatures, for believing in me, and for never giving up.
Love and Light,
In addition to my Son please let me express my appreciation to each of you. You have given me the gift of encouragement and hope in a difficult time. I am so grateful for your support. Thanks for being there for Daniel and family.
How does a father of an innocent son get by his wrongful imprisonment? Reading uplifting quotes sure help. Like: be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. (quoted from blogspot)
Your sacrificial giving has provided Daniel’s commisary needs, allowed him to make phone calls, send emails, and mail brief letters, and make monthly payments on his gigantic fine. Even more you’ve made it possible to supply his family with their household needs: rent, groceries, transportation, insurance, clothing, etc. And more: your thoughtfulness has paid for buying paper and printing copies of his voluminous legal documents, and the postage to send him these documents, reference materials and more. Thank you for standing by Daniel for all this
time ... 654 days and counting.
