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.
Reminder: Back in 2015 at Daniel’s trial the Court-Appointed Attorney refused to put on any Defense. That’s correct. When the Prosecution completed their case, the Judge recessed for lunch. After lunch Daniel’s attorney shocked everyone when he said, “Though my client will be furious at me, The Defense Rests.” He did not call any witnesses - Zero defense.
Thus Daniel was convicted without ever being able to call his witnesses. I guess that should be called “a one-half trial.”
Daniel immediately appealed the conviction. Over a year later the appeal was denied by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and then one year ago the U.S. Supreme Court didn’t look at the appeal. The Supremes are only able to consider 1% of all the appeals they receive.
That is why Daniel’s last chance to overturn his conviction is by filing a 2255 Motion with the Trial Judge. This is what I’ve been explaining in the last few Daniel Updates.
Please note that I’m not an attorney and may not be using the correct legalese - but I did the best I could to help you understand all this. Forgive me if I failed you.
Status of the 2255 Last-Hope Appeal.
As you read this the trial Judge is just receiving the masterfully prepared appeal. She has four or more options:
Daniel is battling discouragement and who can blame him? He has worked himself to the bone crafting this appeal. Now he must await the Court’s decision.
Please continue praying for him as you've been faithfully doing.
I know you folks want to be kept informed so in the next Update (November) I’ll explain the 2255 Appeal’s status at that time. I also hope my health will allow me to continue writing these Updates for you.
Thanks to each of you who have sacrificed to get Daniel this far. If the Court requires Daniel to pay for his Attorney ~ (Option 3 above) sadly Daniel’s Trust Account is still short to cover it. Should you be able to help now - just a bit - it will really help Daniel.
Should the Court decide Daniel doesn’t have to pay for the attorney then any donations will be put into his Trust Account which will continue to help with the family’s needs until he is paid enough to handle it himself.

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.
