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.
October 16th 2017
In September's Daniel Smith Update the 3-Judge Panel had not ruled on Daniel's appeal yet.
Now another month has elapsed and we ask: How did the Judges rule?
No one knows...yet.
What? Is this for real?
Absolutely. Daniel sits in a prison cell marking Xs on the wall while the only message from the 3-judge Panel is Paul Simon’s classic: The Sound of Silence. How do you think Daniel feels since the Oral Appeal hearing was held 7 weeks ago (48 days) and nothing has happened?
I don’t think I remembered to tell you last month that Daniel’s superb Defense Attorney began that appeal hearing asking that the 3-Judge Panel release Daniel on bail while they were deciding how they were going to rule on his appeal. How did the Judges respond? The Sound of Silence.
I’ve anxiously been waiting for almost 2 months now to hopefully write great news from this 9th Circuit Court of Appeals 3-Judge Panel. But the turtle-pace of Justice continues.
Once their ruling is in I’ll update you ASAP.
Today, October 16, 2017, Daniel is in his 3rd year in prison. He has been jailed for 908 days after not being allowed to even put on a defense which is every American’s Constitutional right...isn’t it?
BACK AT SEA-TAC FEDERAL DETENTION PRISON
Daniel had a minor surgery this month that appears to be healing fine. He is loving the contact that many of you have been making: letters, greeting cards, books, magazines, even emails. Let me mention how it works if you’d like to try to send him an email.
It can be done - but not easily. He has two email accounts. One is available to all Federal Inmates and it requires considerable red tape to set up ~ getting through all of their approvals. It limits how many people with whom he can email. All emails are delayed about 2 hours which allows guards to prescreen.
Then Daniel found an email server for which we pay a small monthly fee. I’m unsure how the Bureau of Prisons deals with it since they provide the computer. It has occasional glitches and then at other times works fine. I’m sure the guards prescreen this as well.
With either email server ~ he can not use the Internet, receive attachments or pictures. It is strictly a way to communicate with simple electronic letters. If you’d like to give it a try here is that second email address:
Some supporters say it works OK, others have had problems. Sorry, but if it doesn’t work - I’m clueless to help you...as I’m not a techie at all.
Personal Message from Daniel:
"Dear Ones, Here it is a time of Hopefulness though I am a bit mystified why the Judges' decision isn't known yet. If it wasn't for all of your prayers and encouragement this could have been far worse. But thanks to you for your letters and cards from all over the world. I have been embraced and loved by each and every one of you. Thank you from all of my heart. May your days and weeks be most warm and special." ~ Daniel
