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.
August 14th, 2017
In July’s update we learned that the Trial Judge denied Daniel’s release on bail while he awaits his appeal. The next day Daniel’s Attorney appealed her denial to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
So, did the Appellate Court release Daniel on bail? Of course not.
Here is the denial signed by the Appellate Court Clerk ONLY. "Accordingly, appellant’s motions for bail pending appeal (Docket Entry Nos. , ) are denied. Briefing is completed.  (ME) [Entered: 07/10/2017 05:46 PM]"
To add insult to injury ~ in denying Daniel’s release pending the outcome of his appeal: No judges even ruled...just the clerk - who sided with the trial judge.
So, what lies ahead for Daniel? Daniel's Appeal
(This is the ONLY RULING REMAINING FOR DANIEL!) The Appellate Court decided to focus attention on Daniel’s appeal. They have ordered the attorneys to verbally argue his appeal in Seattle (not San Francisco) on August 31, 2017. This oral hearing is a rare occurrence and it obviously evidences that the Appellate Judges find Daniel's case to be very unusual if not noteworthy. I am thankful that his appeal finally has a set date...and it’s 17 days from today.
UPDATE: But the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) is bound and determined to not have Daniel's case overturned. So they've convinced the Justice Department to drastically elevate their complete support of The FDA by scheduling their top attorney ... H. Thomas Byron... to soundly annihilate Daniel’s appeal. ( I think I heard over the water cooler: Don't let Daniel win ~ no matter what. ) This opposing attorney is the very same attorney who recently argued President Trump’s appeals with the US 9th Circuit Appellate Court. WHY would the FDA want the Justice Department to use their #1 Attorney? Does this suggest to you that they want Daniel to stay behind bars ~ or what?
Today, August 14, 2017, Daniel is in his 3rd year in prison. He has been jailed for 845 days after not being allowed to even put on a defense which is every American’s Constitutional right...isn’t it?

personal note from Daniel:
"Dad, please let all my friends and family around the world know how much I cherish them. I feel so blessed with every email, card, picture, and book from supporters. It keeps me strong. I’ve learned so much and really love making new friends. Its hard to explain, but every one feels like a long-lost friend from the other side.
Most inmates here have very limited support, if any, which is very sad. It makes me realize how lucky I am. When I get out, I’d like to help others in this same way. More than anything though, I’m so grateful for the support that comes in for my family. I want to give everyone a BIG HUG and say THANK YOU as loudly as I can!
It occurs to me once in awhile that its not just me doing this time, its everyone... Karis and kids, my parents and siblings, my closest friends, and all those out there who are standing by through all this. What a wonder. And what a marvelous reunion it will be some day when this is all over. Please give them all my love and deepest thanks for their continued support. Love, Daniel"
Don't you wonder...
How peculiar it is that the trial Judge and 9th Circuit Appellate Court clerk wouldn’t release Daniel on house-curfew bail yet the Bureau of Prisons continues to trust Daniel to leave the prison and transport inmates to various appointments. This honor of driving freely outside of the prison is only given to one other inmate. Nearly 100 times Daniel has driven far beyond the prison walls and always returns faithfully ~ demonstrating he is not a flight risk. Go figure?
Last Month I was admittedly discouraged. I’m sorry I let it show in my writing. But, out of the clear blue, I received cards, letters and emails from you folks. Lifting me up. Encouraging me. Helping me re-focus. Trust more. You deeply strengthened me. God bless you.
Years ago I wrote an article, How did Jesus' mother react when she took her first communion? When she heard what the emblems stood for? His body. His blood. I'm sure I didn't begin to give an adequate answer then. Nor can I adequately answer about my son now, Why on earth has Daniel been so unfairly singled out to be viciously assaulted, ripped from his loved ones and left to rot behind bars? He is not some atrocious criminal.
Then I realized Mary's Son was treated far worse and without any wrong ever having been done. An old, old song was saved in the Library of Congress in 1941: It says, "We'll understand it all bye and bye."
