The FDA has been going after small farmers for decades and if they haven’t been doing so in your state, they will soon. What’s to stop them?
For evidence of FDA and USDA abuses, watch Farmageddon on Amazon or Netflix. This has been going on for far too long and it’s time to stop it. Only YOU and I can do that!
Just lately these agencies have been particularly venomous toward the Amish. Reining in federal agencies is a huge promise made by almost every politician of late. Let’s hold them to it!!!
Sally Oh blocks comments on WordPress. An obvious control freak.
I sometimes do when they appear to be from trolls or comments that are just too whacked or stupid (IMO) to share. What comment did I block that has you in a tizzy?
Hi Sally oh,
I have been trying to get on to your fb page but I am not managing it. Just comes up page not found.
So all I know is that he is facing sentencing on the 16th June and found guilty on all counts.
I don’t know the full details.
Love Christine Hendrie (Scottish dude)

I am so sorry to read about this tragedy. I do not really use this kind of social media. But clearly I have missed Sam’s trial so therefore I do not know the outcome of his trial.
I am not exactly a local resident…..I live in Scotland. I send all my love to Sam and his family from across the water.
This is truly abhorrent behaviour and it is quite clear who the criminals are. Corporate companies and their friends in office
Love Coming from Christine Hendrie
Thank you! It is truly an injustice. Please sign the petition even though you are not in America. The world is as outraged as Americans are! bit.ly/freeamishsam
Where is Sam now, and what is his status? I want to help but also want to know the latest information available.
He’s in jail awaiting sentencing on 6/16 :(
So what was the verdict? I couldn’t find you on Facebook to check
Guilty on all counts, sentencing is 6/16. http://facebook.com/xosallyoh is me
I read about this in Natural News, a publication I respect or I would have thought it was a joke! 58 years for labelling? This is a disgusting abuse of power that can’t go unanswered. The FDA has long been known to protect the interests of corporations over the public, even here in the UK we see how they ruin anything natural or healthy on behalf of big pharma.
I sincerely hope that justice prevails in this case. I have just read that he was found guilty on all counts and can only shake my head in disbelief. The entire jury should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves! There is just no excuse for their decision whatsoever. We should all be free to produce and use any product, for any reason health or otherwise, as long as no harm is caused. As this is the case here how could they possibly find him guilty? It just beggars belief.
Hopefully sanity will be restored soon and he is returned to his family.
I have used all three of his products for which Samuel is being crucified. All three are wonderful products. I removed a skin cancer from my arm using Tomorrow Be Gone. This is a MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE! Bankrupted the family, stole Samuel’s products and the FEDS have harassed the family to death! FREE SAMUEL GIROD, allow him to go home to his family, holding him in jail with NO BOND! Samuel could have shot a man in cold blood and received better treatment. Tyranny!
I drove Sam and his Family for 3 weeks 6000 miles across the country in a ’79 trans van, amazing memories. They are a wonderful family and he does not deserve this for making a completely safe product to support his family all over some labeling…
Sally, what happened today? Is there any news? I know prayer has no geographical limitations, but my heart hates being states away.
:) xoxoxo thank you for caring so much. I’m right here but couldn’t go yesterday and can’t go today, breaks my heart to miss it. I’ll be there tomorrow. But a very close personal friend was in the courtroom and provided me with a detailed update. Posting now!
I hope the Amish farmer doesn’t go to jail. It might be faster to send Donald Trump a message on Facebook or even better yet a tweet on Twitter. Natural News should do a story on this. Thanks for reporting it, Sally Oh!
Several people have written Trump and Sheriff Richard Mack is working on a presidential pardon for Samuel and many other unjustly imprisoned humans — see thefreedomcoalition.com. And Natural News did a story last night!!! That was pretty sweet — at least now the cockroaches can’t do their dirty work in the dark :)
Wow True Activist and We are Change reported on this! I just read the Natural News article. They also have a petition that needs to be signed because Google wants to censor their work.
Free Sam Girod
I am continuely disgusted how the gov’ts lack of integrity pollutes,literally, people’s lives by allowing corporate & big pharma to get away with murder(again, literally), & destroying individuals lives.I go out of my way to get & use products that are home based or more integritous companies, products that resonate more naturally w my body. I pray this situation comes to a resolve of freedom for Samuel & the continuance of his business.
When I began reading about the FDA abuse of governmental power when I was in high school, I began referring to the FDA as the Fraud and Delusion Administration. Now 72, I am convinced by the continuing trail of evidence since then that they have well earned this epithet.
Sally, Thank you for all you do to help others.
Can you please provide addresses and a printable petition for those who do not have access to computers?
Is it possible to subscribe to The Kentucky Free Press – to receive in snail mail rather on the computer?
I’m so sorry, I just found this comment! I don’t print and mail the newsletter (just no time and money to do that, sorry), but you can mail your signature to me and I will add your name to the petition! Sally Oh, 1555 E New Circle Rd Ste 142-117, Lexington, KY 40509.
So sad that the government has too be SO involved with everything. Sad
Isn’t it though?
This makes me want to buy some chickweed salve.
I do not need the FDA and DOJ to “protect” me from an Amish farmer selling home remedies, nor do I want my federal tax dollars used to persecute a man who has harmed nobody and is only working to support his family.
FDA: The Affordable Care Act is currently being dismantled and good riddance. I hope that bureaucratic nightmare is replaced by a market based system because that will be patient oriented. To reduce healthcare costs, the FDA needs to be reigned in at the same time. Their two goals seem to be growing the power of the FDA and protecting the large pharmaceutical cartel from competition from smaller upstart companies, and yes, even from Amish farmers.
DOJ: I learned everything I needed to know about the DOJ when Eric Holder intentionally ran guns to the Sinaloan drug cartel in Mexico during Operation Fast & Furious, as a means to implicate US firearms to provide political cover for further depriving US citizens of the right to keep and bear arms. US Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting in her jet with Bill Clinton to make his wife’s private email server crimes disappear only confirmed what I already knew about the Department of Just Us.
It’s a shame there’s not a federal court in Bath County. If Sam’s case goes to trial in Lexington, oh how I hope I’m on that jury. The representatives of our feral government will get the electric chair!
I love their salve and I love the Girods’ warmth and humor and gentle nature. That something like this can happen in America, Land of the Free, is bewildering.
