South Carolina woman jailed after telling restaurant that ‘Jesus’ would pay her tab

Published

A 51-year-old Myrtle Beach, South Carolina woman was jailed on Sunday night after she created a disturbance in a local restaurant then refused to pay her tab, saying that “Jesus” was going to pay for her dinner.

According to WBTW, police were summoned to Bennetts Calabash seafood restaurant at around 9 p.m. on Sunday. Management informed them that April Lee Yates had been on the premises for nearly four hours and had started a disturbance with other customers.

When she became disruptive, restaurant employees asked her to pay her bill and leave, which was when Yates explained that she did not have the $26 to pay for her food. When asked who she expected to pay the bill, Yates replied “Jesus.”

She was arrested and taken into custody at the Myrtle Beach jail. She has been charged with defrauding a restaurant.

The case echoes a similar incident that took place in October of 2014 in Lawton, Oklahoma in which patron Kristi Rhines ran up a bar tab at Mexican restaurant El Chico, then explained to restaurant staff that her husband would pay for her drinks.

When asked who her husband is, Rhines replied “Jesus,” but was unable to produce a certificate of marriage or marriage license.

Jesus would be back soon, she said, however, insisting that he would “be able to walk in and produce U.S. currency to pay for her bill.”

She, too, was arrested and taken into custody for defrauding a restaurant.

Vice President Mike Pence is seemingly complicit in President Donald Trump's apparent extortion and bribery plot, based on the transcript of a press conference the VP held in Poland on September 2. At issue is a whistleblower's complaint that the White House refuses to release. It is believed it says Trump repeatedly threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine until, or in exchange for, that country digging up and handing over dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. There is no evidence any dirt was found or even exists.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Published

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.

As the movement in Congress to impeach President Donald Trump continues to grow, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is considering starting a select committee to focus the investigations into President Donald Trump.

"A senior Democratic aide tells The Daily Beast that the idea of a select panel has 'been raised by some members' as a way to consolidate impeachment proceedings around Donald Trump."
