Orwellian nightmare becomes reality for Florida woman after judge declares living ‘off the grid’ illegal

waterNatural News – by Ethan A. Huff

A Florida woman who successfully converted the utilities in her house from city water and electricity from the local power company to rainwater and solar panels is being punished for her innovative efforts to live “off the grid,” which a local magistrate recently declared to be illegal and in violation of local code ordinances.

Though he admitted that the regulations are redundant and unreasonable, Special Magistrate Harold S. Eskin ruled that Robin Speronis, a 54-year-old former real estate agent currently living in Cape Coral, is violating city code, not to mention the International Property Maintenance Code, by generating and supplying her own water and electricity from natural elements rather than public utilities.  

“Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand,” stated Eskin, insinuating his own disagreement with the outrageous rules. Nevertheless, he insists that he is required to enforce them, “whether I want to or not.”

Government has no right to force individuals onto the grid, says self-sufficiency advocate

According to Off The Grid News, Speronis has been fighting the city of Cape Coral since November, when a code enforcement officer first showed up at her door and actually tried to evict her from her own property for not using public utilities. Speronis contends that relying on nature for sustenance is her personal choice, and that the city is violating her rights by trying to force her onto the grid.

“I am in compliance,” Speronis stated to the News-Press about the saga. “I’m in compliance of living… you may have to hook-up, but you don’t have to use it. Well, what’s the point?”

For the past year, Speronis has relied on solar energy and rainwater to power her small duplex located in the heart of Cape Coral. Her off-the-grid lifestyle also includes using a small camp stove to cook, a number of propane lamps to generate light and heat and even a camping shower hooked up to a rainwater tank for bathing.

Conflicting code requirements outdated, need to be abolished

Speronis, who is a vocal advocate of colloidal silver for health and healing, admits that she still uses the public sewer system for water waste but says she really has no need for public water or electricity. Even so, with the exception of a few alleged violations that were thrown out due to her not receiving proper notice, the city is insistent that Speronis comply with its demands.

“It was a mental fistfight,” says Todd Allen, Speronis’ lawyer who has agreed to represent her pro bono. “There’s an inherent conflict in the code.”

This conflict mainly arises from an outdated Cape Coral ordinance that requires homes located within a certain vicinity of municipal water to at least connect to the system, whether they use it or not. The original intent of this provision was to prohibit the use of water wells where public water is available, a limitation that the city is now applying to rainwater collection.

“The entire point seems to be to discourage an interesting lifestyle that’s independent of city systems,” writes J.D. Tuccille for Reason.com about the situation. “Restrictive, mindless, rules like those with which Speronis is threatened are a menace to both independence and innovation. But that’s how government officials roll.”

Meanwhile, Speronis is standing strong in her refusal to bow to the city’s demands, even though she now has liens on her property for unpaid fines associated with her “violations.” Speronis can still appeal the judge’s decision, however, which would allow her a stay on compliance.

“We’re in the preliminary stages of all this,” Speronis told the News-Press. “We have a long, long road to go. I’m sure justice will prevail.”

  1. “Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand,” stated Eskin, insinuating his own disagreement with the outrageous rules. Nevertheless, he insists that he is required to enforce them, “whether I want to or not.”

    Reasonableness and the NWO’s agenda don’t EVER go hand in hand.

    But rest assured, judge Eskin, treason and hanging ALWAYS go hand in hand, and we look forward to seeing a nice, new hemp rope around your neck.

    Whether you “want it to or not”.

    Not an option for you.

    1. that is what you do not want ppl need to learn
      The origins of words and power
      Why the true original meaning of so many words hidden
      The catch-22 of modern law and meaning of key words
      justice =
      From 13th Century Latin justus Old English justice, Old French justise meaning “LAWS, RIGHT of LAW- the exercise of legal authority in vindication of ancient Imperial (Roman) rights and precepts by assigning reward or punishment”. The word was formed upon the claims of the Roman Cult Popes to have in their possession “untampered” ancient legal documents from Constantinople such as the Codex Justinian and earlier which (apart from several extraordinary anomolies) also claimed the Catholic Church to be “above the law”–hence the ultimate origin of the word Justice = forged laws of Justin and Emperors = Church above the law. The first and foremost pledge of all senior legal representatives of the “Justice” systems in Western christian nations is not to impart fair and true legal judgment, but to protect the Roman Cult from being held accountable for their actions = fundamental meaning of Justice.
      there codez rulez statues do not apply to you stop allowing them to deceive you into arguing the code force them to show the contract you made that binds you to there codez there is none and as there supreme crossdressers in many cases have said if it does not name you in the code it does not apply to you only city officials city property ect, not private property

  2. Once again they are making their penis codes supersede the Constitution and Bill of Rights. These bastard judges (if you can even call them judges) these days are literally ignoring the fact that the Constitution and Bill of Rights even exist. It’s like they were never educated or have literally no idea what the Constitution and Bill of Rights is and believe the law of the land is ONLY their penal codes and nothing else. When people try to exercise their rights, the judges seem to give this confused, puzzled look on their faces saying, “What do you mean there’s a Constitution and Bill of Rights? I’ve never heard of such a thing in all my years.” Unflippinbelievable!

    But what do you expect from corporate courts?

  3. Oh no! The control freaks are freaking out. What this lady thinks she can live in this country without being under our control system. Everything in this country is about control now. How do you stop control? Force!

    1. Hardly surprising, given that their ‘god’ is Satan, and the ‘messiah’ they’re awaiting is the anti-Christ.

      It’s my belief that the top illuminati/Zionist/AshkeNAZI/OGKWE (only God knows what else) murdering so-called ‘jews’ are direct descendants of the ones that Jesus called sons of their father, the Devil.

      I have no absolute proof of this, although I have read some material to that effect.

      But you have to admit, it makes perfect sense.
