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.

July 2019

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

Human Potential

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.

My Case

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!

My Dad

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.

Daniel

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.

And thanks again, to all of you, for all your love and support.  Looking forward to hearing from you.  If I've missed a previous email, please write again to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness.

Daniel Smith


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.

June 2019

As Daniel's father I've tried to only ask for help when a critical situation has arisen. But today I am asking for your help. His trust account has reached rock bottom. His family, thanks to each of you faithful supporters, has survived these many months. He couldn't have done it without you.  How I wish I was able to give the needed money and not have to ask you. You have been so compassionate and caring each step along the way.

Please Consider: I told Daniel that I'd try to explain to you why he still needs help. Please let me sincerely express how uncomfortable it is for Daniel to ask for your support. He feels upset that he still needs help. One person caustically wrote: "Don't send me anymore updates.  He's been out of prison long enough to earn his own living.  All you are doing is begging."

I apologize to any of you who feel this way; but the fact of the matter is Daniel has been helping a startup Internet company by programming and designing their web pages. He has put in long hours and many weeks of exhausting creative effort. But the company still hasn't launched and only has sent him chicken-feed pay so far.  Daniel trusts these owners and is expecting a good-sized check ~ hopefully very soon. And Karis is galiantly working two jobs which is a real blessing ~ providing a chunk of the family's needs.

Some write each month: "Thank you for letting us know what his needs are. I'm glad to help support him; he spent years in prison on our behalf." These caring comments always put a lump in my throat. With some reluctance I knew I had to share his serious situation again. Caring and faithful friends ~ I pray You can see
fit to help this time. Thank you in advance for doing so.

Daniel Smith | April Update

April 22 2019

Dad Is Proud Of His Son
As I consider what Daniel has gone through over most of the last 9 or 10 years I marvel at the character that has emerged from it all. Simply helping others he was selected by some in high positions to be ostracized and punished for doing so.When offered a plea bargain or lifetime in prison if he lost in court ~ he did not yield but braved the odds and maintained his commitment and conviction to stand firm. While languishing in prison he didn't get bitter, nor did he plan to retaliate. He came out of prison a bigger person than when he entered. Dan will always be a hero for that. I am proud just to know him and to be able to humbly say, I'm his Dad.

Daniel & His Family Are Well Now
The rush trips to the Emergency Room for Sabby and lingering, weakening and disabling illnesses that both Daniel & Karis endured have finally ended.

Daniel Has Tried So Hard To Earn a Sufficient Income To Meet Their Needs Now that they're well Daniel and Karis are making huge strides trying to generate an income sufficient to provide just for their needs. Daniel has exhausted himself exploring any opportunity to earn a living. Strange, but it seemed the released-from-prison inmate programs hindered more than helped him find a real job. But I believe just as he has always done ~ Daniel will finally succeed. Thanks to you dear supporters the family has survived! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your undying loving responses

The Funds Are At The Bottom Of The Barrel
In addition to what I've written above ~ finances have been really drained by car repairs, auto insurance, utility bills, etc. If you're able to help ~ just even a little bit ~ you will make such an impact. I thank you in advance for doing so ~ as you've amazed me at how you've helped each time the need is critical.

Daniel's Special Letter To You Folks

Dear Friends & Family,

Daniel here.  It's been a while since my last update.  Please forgive my silence.

First things first.  Some of you may remember a recent newsletter in which I pledged to give one random person an actual book that is very special to me and traveled with me in prison. I didn't mention the title but promised I would in my next newsletter, along with why I love this book so much.  Some of you might have thought it was going to be a Bible or some self-help book, but I have a surprise for you.  It was neither.   Before I share the title and the winning subscriber, I need to preface it with a short story:

Once upon a time, our dear Karis (
https://tinyurl.com/kariscopper) told me about a workshop she attended, during which a gentleman got on stage and exhibited a superhuman feat. He had the ability to "see through cards", that is: you could shuffle a brand new unmarked deck of cards and he could tell you what every card would be before you turned it over.  During his demonstration, he got only one card wrong out of 52.  He proceeded to tell the audience that anyone could learn this skill using the exact same method he had used to teach himself. He said his reference for learning the skill was "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar".  Although frequently published with fiction stories, this story is, ostensibly, true.  It is a story about
a man who could see through cards - but also about human potential and the power of a focused heart and mind.  

Prior to being sentenced to roughly four years, we'd been told I could get as many as 35 years.  I'll never forget what Karis said to me over the jailhouse phone one day: "If you're going to go to prison for 20 years, you better come out a bada@@".  Of course she didn't mean musclebound with tattoos.  I knew exactly what she meant.  And to that, I replied: "I suppose I should start with The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar."  She sent it straight away.

Out of the upwards of 150 books I read while in prison, this one was a favorite.  I can't tell you how many times I loaned or read it out-loud to other inmates.  They always loved it. It's no wonder.  We all love to hear how we are capable of so much more - especially in a place like prison.  I'd like to tell you that I came home with the ability to see through cards, but that is not the case.  As it turned out I had other internal work to do, but I am certain, if I had applied myself to that end, I might be really good at blackjack today.  =)

And now it's time for the winner!  Sadly, I can't reveal their name without permission, so that will have to remain a secret until I get it, but this person will be receiving an email requesting a mailing address so I know where to send their promised copy of Henry Sugar - the very one that traveled with me throughout my prison experience - torn pages and all.  (Keep an eye on your email in case it's you).

I still have a surprise for you, even if you're not the winner.   Recently, we celebrated our niece's birthday, who has been legally blind since almost birth.  As gifts this year we took turns recording audio books in our humble studio.  I'd like to share with you my recording of The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar that was recorded with all of you in mind.  If you'd like to stream it from the Internet, try this link:
https://soundcloud.com/dvotinomusic/the-wonderful-story-of-henry-sugar-read-by-daniel-smith-votino

If you'd like to download it to your computer, try this one:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zPzwz7wH33g1JIuGUM6N4oQa1QqvmSSC/view?usp=sharing

If for any reasons these links don't work, please email me and I will send you the file personally.  

I also have one more short song to share.  
It's a "scratch track" of a devotional project I'm working on in my spare time.

https://soundcloud.com/dvotino/may-the-longtime-sun-in-the-style-of-snatam-kaurscratch-track

I am still working on my book, which of course is dedicated and will be free in gratitude for all your love and support.  Things have been pretty challenging the last couple months. As you may already know, our daughter contracted EBV, which took a toll on her liver and four trips to ER to get figured out.   She's doing much better now - as is the whole family - just in time for Spring.  We continue to use and be grateful for the availability of various natural remedies that help with this sort of thing.  =)

We were excited this week to learn that Sabby was accepted to George Wright Academy for the remainder of her high school.  This will require a big move but change is always good.  I'm still working to get things back on track financially for our family.  I hope to be able to announce more in the next month or two.  As always, your prayers and support are very much welcome.

* I want to close in asking for your prayers for my Dad who has been a superhero to me and many others.  A couple weeks ago he was rushed to the hospital unable to breathe.  He was brought back from the brink and intubated and put under a 33 hour coma so his body could heal from the event.  He had 6-8 people working on him in the emergency room for over 2 hours straight.  He is home now and resting but needs your prayers and support.

This is all I have for now.  I'm sorry it's longer than usual but there was much to share.  Thank you again for all your love and support.

With Love, Light, Laughter & Limitlessness!
Daniel
