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.
As Daniel's father I was thrilled to read the awesome message he wrote for each of you supporters. It is a must read ~ as: 1) it reveals a brand new age-lowering process, 2) daily ways to live better right now and 3) announces a last-chance legal motion to overturn his conviction. This is being prepared as you read these words. Dan also adds many more intriguing matters.
I've decided to not waste any more of your time so you may quickly feast on Daniels message. Here it is:
Dear Friends & Family,
It has been a while since my last update. I hope this email finds you in Love, Light, Laughter and Limitlessness.
Many of you have written over the last few months to ask how I've been doing. It is always so nice to hear from each of you. I remain ever-grateful for your continued love, encouragement and support.
Work & Play
One of the questions I often get is what am I up to. Well, besides enjoying every little thing I ever took for granted, I am looking ahead and keeping myself busy. I am presently working for a small software company while trying to get my feet back on the ground. The pay is low and I work more than I get paid for, but I'm thankful for the opportunity. I am also working on my e-book (which will be made available for free soon), in addition to spending time in the studio, either recording, studying, or researching.
Health & Wellbeing
Most recently, I've taken to the kitchen culturing my own bacteria, specifically, L-Reuteri yogurt. New MIT studies reveal an astounding number of age-reversing benefits derived from two special strains of this probiotic seemingly missing from the average diet. Dr. William Davis (Wheat Belly author) has recently brought this research forward even explaining how we can all culture this probiotic in our homes to take advantage of the benefits revealed in these studies.
One of the things I love about this yogurt, besides it's taste, is its anti-inflammatory effects and its ability to boost oxytocin levels, which is a master hormone produced by the pituitary - the gland that controls the function of most other endocrine glands, including youthfulness. I'm feeling great on intermittent fasting and one serving a day. If you're interested in learning more, or how to make this yogurt for yourself, I've prepared a link list here: https://tinyurl.com/Yogurt-Elaridi-Links
There's something else I'm pretty excited about. Some of you may recall I recently recorded the audiobook version of "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar" by Roald Dahl - ostensibly, a true story about a man who learned to see without his eyes.
For those of you who missed it, you may still be able to listen to it here: https://soundcloud.com/dvotinomusic/the-wonderful-story-of-henry-sugar-read-by-daniel-smith-votino
The reason I bring this up is because it turns out that people all over the world are learning to see without their eyes - from India, Malaysia, Germany, Romania, Russia, UK, even the USA. Truly it's a wondrous time to be alive! And because seeing is believing, be sure to check out these clips from independent journalist, Frank Elaridi, included in the previously mentioned link list here: https://tinyurl.com/Yogurt-Elaridi-Links.
Something else I am working on is my case. I only have a little over two months to file this last-ditch appeal which is based upon new critical evidence exposing prosecutorial misconduct. If we prevail, it could mean a complete reversal, which would mean the world to my family. Your prayers and good wishes are so important and highly appreciated!
I'd like to close with a little something about my Dad, Larry Smith. As many of you know, my Dad is a Hero to me. During my time in prison he was always there, daily, either by email or phone, encouraging me and keeping me strong. He created and maintained StandByDaniel.com, rallying friends and family, making sure, with your help, that my family's needs were always met. He continues his support today, unwilling to rest until he's seen me back on my feat again.
What many of you may not know is how my Dad came to be my hero almost 49 years ago. I couldn't tell you the number of times I've heard the story how, as a pastor of a small church in St. Helens Oregon, my Dad knew he had to adopt me the moment our eyes met and I smiled. I wasn't even up for adoption at the time and barely a year old. Had I not been adopted by my Dad soon after, my life would be much different than it is today.
Growing up as a "PK" (a pastor's kid), I recall sitting in the second row next to my sisters every Sunday and Wednesday as my Dad would preach the sermon and my Mom would play the piano or organ. One of my Dad's favorite hymns was "It Is Well With My Soul", a song I listened to and reflected upon more than once in prison.
Retired now after 40 years of ministry, my Dad has taken up blogging to memorialize the moments that forged his faith throughout the years. You can read his blog at GodApplause.com.
I often share or dedicate songs in my updates. This time I want to dedicate a song to my Dad who turned 76 this last month. The song is For F.F.B. by Michael Card. I love you Dad. Thank you for being my hero.
With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness.
Some write each month: "Thank you for letting us know what his needs are. I'm glad to help support him; he sacrificed dearly for each of us." These caring comments flood my heart with tears. Caring and faithful friends ~ I appreciate you more than I can possibly say. Thank you for being you.
His new legal motion provides real hope for success. He'd no longer be called a felon - restoring his well-deserved good name. His 3+ remaining years of probation would also be cancelled and his criminal charges blotted out. This is great news! The only drawback is it will be costly hiring an attorney and paying all the legal filing fees, etc.
Daniel was informed to get an attorney hired immediately or he won’t have enough time to prepare and file this appeal.
I used the last of my Savings to help pay this attorney. But it is far to little to do so.
If you are able to graciously help ~ just a little bit ~ we’ll be able to hire the attorney. I’m praying that this appeal will finally overturn his totally wrong conviction. I even launched a new Go Fund Me page but after 2 days GoFundMe DELETED my new Campaign, and another Campaign and Blocked Access to my decade-long Account. The Internet says GoFundMe is totally deleting any Accounts in which any claim of healing is mentioned.
Never again will donations from GFM or any other sources be received. Your thoughtful caring sacrifice is now Daniel's only possibility as Income from his new employer is barely dribbling in. His new appeal will fail unless we can step up to the plate. He would have been so overjoyed to not be called a felon since all he did was help and provide hope to any or everyone who sought 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). Please either type:
Some find it even simpler to just click the PayPal logo below:
If you prefer to send bitcoin, you may use the following address: 17qhzb7UYyWNjyZWUpMegyPqah24TqVEKY
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 still not possible for Daniel to have his own bank account ~ that’s why, I his father, receive it for him. For any checks to be deposited for Daniel’s and his family’s use it needs to be made out to Larry Smith.
Exciting Days Are Coming
PS: RE: Future Daniel Smith Updates ~ I’ll continue to send Updates to you regularly (health allowing) as I know you folks love Daniel and want to be kept informed.
