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 19, 2018

Thinking Back

In last month’s update we learned the dismal decision the Judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals made about Daniel’s Appeal. They denied it again. First back in December by a 3-Judge panel and in Feb. by all 29 Judges. I was stunned when the 9th Circuit Court Clerk wrote: "The full court has been advised of the Petition for Rehearing En Banc and no judge of the court requested a vote on the Petition...it is DENIED."

Well so ~ is there any hope left for Daniel? Or is he going to go through his life a convicted felon...for helping people? Every job he applies for he is a felon. Every house he tries to rent he is a felon. Every loan he applies for he is a felon. He can’t vote - he’s a felon. And he can’t dare miss a meeting with his parole officer...for years. Is there any thing else that could help him? Is there someway his conviction can still be overturned? What is left?

By the way ~ don’t think we’ve been sitting on our hands. We’ve been active behind the scenes. President Trump has been sent a special request (by an astute Daniel supporter) to release him. Another determined supporter contacted the President, his wife and some of his staff as well. So far we’ve received no response. I’m praying for one.

So...What IS LEFT? Looking Ahead

Daniel, with his super outlook, refuses to give up. He brought us current on the one procedural hope remaining: "So what's next ? My attorney is preparing to submit a Petition for Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court based upon these and other issues in which the panel -- or its clerk -- ignored the law. A review by the Supreme Court, however, is not an easy thing to acquire, but we will try, and by grace we may prevail." Will you pray with me for this?

Daniel’s Heartfelt message from Prison:

Dear Friends & Family,

Its been another month and each one that goes by brings me closer to family and Home. Seeing my freedom in the offing brings a great joy and longing I can't describe.

A quick update: my attorney is still working on our Supreme Court petition. We are expectantly hopeful for a reversal but I will accept whatever the outcome because this journey has already been its own reward.

As many of you know by now, I like to communicate with music. One song that has remained with me for the length of this journey is "Through All Of It" (by Colton Dixon), and this is the first song I'd like to dedicate to all of you in this letter.

I feel so blessed and thankful, not only for this experience, which I look forward to sharing one day in more detail, but for all your love and support of myself and my family along the way. If God is Love then, truly, you are all God to me, and have been, at least in part, my God, "through all of it":


Colton Dixon - Through All of It

There are days I've taken more than I can give - And there are choices that I made
That I wouldn't make again - I've had my share of laughter
Of tears and troubled times - This has been the story of my life

I have won - and I have lost
I got it right sometimes - But sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey - I've seen joy, I've seen regret
Oh and You have been my God - Through all of it

You were there when it all came down on me - When I was blinded by my fear
And I struggled to believe - But in those unclear moments
You were the one keeping me strong - This is how my story's always gone

I have won - and I have lost
I got it right sometimes - But sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey - I've seen joy, I've seen regret
Oh and You have been my God - Through all of it

Through all of it - And this is who You are
More constant than the stars up in the sky - All these years of our lives, I...
I look back and I see You - Right now I still do - And I'm always going to

I have won - and I have lost
I got it right sometimes - But sometimes I did not
Life's been a journey - I've seen joy
I've seen regret - Oh and You have been my God

Through all of it - Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it - Oh and You have been my God      
Through all of it

I'll never forget my first day standing in a line for the computer at the first prison. In the midst of all the culture shock and wondering how I had ended up here, one person on in the line informed me he'd previously used MMS to eradicate his prostate cancer while another told me his wife was using it for a skin condition. I marveled, asking myself what were the chances I would be given such a timely reminder of what a wonderful thing I have been given the opportunity to be a part of.

And so there is another song I'd like to share... an "oldie but a goodie"... but one for ALL of us. It is "We Are the World". I enjoy very much the version with Luciano Pavarotti & Friends.

I hope you will enjoy it also and smile because you too are a part of an important movement - one of improving the quality of people's lives and thereby raising the world's consciousness at an important time in our history. Indeed, we are the world... we are the children... we are the ones who make a brighter day.

Thank you for being such an inspiration.

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness

Daniel


How Dad Views Daniel

To this old Father ~ an old poem, in part, expresses Daniel’s plight:

"Like an eagle caged, it had striven, and worn
The frail dust ne’er for such conflicts born,
Till the bars were rent, and the hour was come|
For its fearful rushing through darkness home."

(The German Poet, Johann Matthaeus Bechstein in 1856)

eagle

Today Daniel has been behind bars for 1,062 days since his conviction. Plus he was in house curfew for years before the trial. How I grieve that this incredible, giving, caring, creative soul has indeed been caged. He deserves to be freed. Please uncage this eagle and let him fly once more.

And for those who can help...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many of you folks that gave a love gift last month to help Daniel and his family’s needs! Also, a substantial payment was made on Daniel’s Court fine thanks to those of you who made that possible.

One wrote, "I don’t send this out of obligation. I love Daniel and what he did for us. I cheerfully donate this wanting to help him all I can." That placed a lump in my throat.

I’ve never met such a loving and caring support group. It is not possible to really tell you how much you are appreciated or how touched I am by your warmth. One day when Daniel walks free it will all be worth it.

Any assistance can best be sent through PayPal’s Send Money. When PayPal asks for the email to which your donation is to be sent, simply type (copy & paste does not work) ~ ~ either type:

If you prefer to send your donation conventionally: USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc. please send it to:

Larry Smith 9208 NE Highway 99, Suite 107-165 Vancouver, WA 98665-8986

This "suite" is simply a type of a post office box - with a street address.

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.

With Gracious Thankfulness

Larry Smith
Daniel’s Father
