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.

Just before Christmas I excitedly wrote, "Day 534 (Nov. 14, 2016) opened a new segment for this gallant warrior...his Appeal began. The Appellate process to overturn Daniel’s conviction is finally actually underway." Hope was finally budding...or so it seemed.
Today is Day 596 (Jan. 12, 2017) and the Appeal is on hold because the Appelate court (1) has refused to respond to a simple request by Daniel’s Attorney; and instead (2) has granted the Prosecution an-unlimited-extension-of time to respond to Daniel’s Appeal.
As my soul cried out this isn’t fair. It isn’t right. It isn’t just - I pondered: Why have hallowed words been ignored, man-handled and spat upon by our Criminal Justice System? "Justice delayed is justice denied!" said William E. Gladstone in the late 1800s. That’s more than 200 years ago. We can fly to the stars, manipulate DNA and communicate globally in seconds. But one critical flaw still hampers, humilates and overwhelms sincere and honest hearts worldwide. Justice is unjust.
Scottish poet Robert Burns might well have been also referring to Justice when he wrote, "The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry." He only lived 37 years before his death in 1797. If he could witness Daniel’s case (and thousands more judicial cases) ~ the atrocious scandals called Justice he would turn over in his grave where he’s been for more than three centuries.
One survivor of the holocaust wrote: "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." - Elie Wiesel.
Back at SeaTac Federal Detention Center Daniel is nearly beside himself knowing he is missing his youngest daughter’s life, Karis’ companionship and holding his grandchild. Parents are aging. Friends are ghosts. Freedom is a memory.
Please don’t say, "Oh what’s the use." Please don’t stop hoping. Please keep protesting. Please keep supporting Daniel. Please keep helping the ongoing needs of his family, his battle and pray unceasingly.
Emily Dickinson’s poetic thoughts seem fitting right here:
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”

What Daniel Experiences Each Day, Week, Month, Year...
TODAY IS DECEMBER 6, 2016
Three weeks ago (Nov. 14, 2016) I attempted to email you the November 2016 DANIEL SMITH UPDATE and Google G-Mail refused. So in this update I will include some key sections of the November 2016 update.
534 Days and Finally The Appeal Begins
556 days ago the Judge threw Daniel in Prison...just moments after the Jury said guilty. Though Her Honor would not allow Daniel to put on a defense, though the Prosecution and Judge pulled some unforgivable shenanigans, though Big Pharma colluded with the FDA Daniel was ripped from his family and loved ones...in court without being able to get our hugs or speak to us. Ever afterwords to be known as the MMS Scapegoat /almost Martyr with Felon for his nickname.
Day 534 (Nov. 14, 2016) opened a new segment for this gallant warrior...his Appeal began. The Appellate process to overturn Daniel’s conviction finally is actually underway. Step 1 - on 11-14-16 was completed when his attorney filed the appeal - his file had hundreds of pages petitioning the 9th Circuit Appellate Court to either Reverse Daniel's conviction OR order a New Trial. Keep in mind this Appeal is a PROCESS.
(Step 1) ~ Monday, Nov. 14th Daniel’s opening brief for the direct appeal arrived at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals;
(Step 2) ~ Then the Government has 30 days to respond. Daniel expects the Government will seek and be granted an extension...perhaps for several months which could delay their filing by months;
(Step 3) ~ Once the Government’s filing is posted ~ Daniel will have 14 days to reply.
(Step 4) ~ Once all briefs and arguments are in, the Court can rule immediately or take as long as it needs or wants to to decide it.
DANIEL’S SUMMATION: "Dad...please tell my Supporters that I need them each and every day ~ as I do not expect a decision sooner than six months from now. Worse, though I hate to imagine it, it could be another year. It could also go miraculously smooth and be just a few months."
SOME HEART-BREAKING NEWS:
Lonely days and Lonely nights are taking their toll...Please continue praying for Daniel and his wife and daughter (Karis & Sabby). Loneliness. Separation. Missing life’s Hallmark Moments while being detained among hundreds of criminals...which is always a serious concern.
SOME HOUSE DANGER NEWS: ~ ~ Daniel’s wife and daughter have been getting sicker by the week. Why? Inspection of their rental house has uncovered mold throughout. The amount is unbelievable and the consequences of continuing to live in the mold are unthinkable. Renting a different home is a horrendous moving chore, school disrupting and a big jolt to the pocket book...but they are packing right now...they need our help. But ~ ~ ~ GOOD NEWS UPDATE: Thanks to you awesome supporters ~ who came through in the clutch AGAIN ~ you made it 75% financially possible for them to move to a healthy, mold-free house. You were joined by a giving-hearted Spokane supporter who also gave a short-term loan to Karis for the balance needed. Karis says "Thank you from the bottom of my heart; we are feeling better as each new day dawns."
SOME GOOD NEWS: Finally the Prison is allowing Daniel to receive books ~ which must be Paperback and, if new, sent by the book store or other publisher. Currently he requests Technical - Scientific - and documented Alternative Health genre.
His address for letters, books, etc. is:
Federal Detention Center,
Louis Daniel Smith, #74882-065,
Unit EA, PO Box 13900,
Seattle, WA 98198.
(a) Daniel's Court fine is a quite serious debt...it has more than $10,000 left to be paid. It will sure help Daniel if we can reduce it so it won't end up penalizing him. The Court is allowing us to make payments...which has helped the debt to be reduced regularly. AND (b) Karis & Sabby need to be able to fill their cupboards and refrigerator and take care of all the Utility fees, winter warm clothing and repay the short-term loan. ~ ~ Yes winter has hit Spokane and it is forecast to be a bad one. If you're able ~ and inclined to help ~ please see how to donate on the lower part of this Update.
Supporters ~ ~ can we meet their needs: Financially, Sending Encouragement, Prayer, and more?
Thank you faithful supporters for nudging Daniel’s trust fund last month. It is still lower than needed but we can’t say, Thank You" enough. Perhaps...in this special holiday season...You'd enjoy sharing your giving heart and make Daniel and his family part of your family. And your uplifting Christmas / Seasonal card to an Inmate, as loved as Daniel, would encourage him greatly!!

Don't quit reading yet
Because, after 7 years of silence Daniel just blistered ABC's TV NEWS for their fabricated, false-investigative broadcast about MMS, Genesis 2 Church, Jim Humble and Mark Grenon ... and Doug Nash's seemingly deliberately false allegation that MMS-caused the death of Sylvia Fink..his reported wife. Daniel titled this response: Who Killed Sylvia Fink? It is posted on www.StandByDaniel.com. When an MMS hero like Daniel reveals buried secrets it is breathtakingly powerful.
I'll bet you'll read this more than once! :):)
With Gracious Appreciation
