Jace Burk can’t remember anything about his life before his adoption at age nine. Now, at fifteen, while he and his sister attempt to discover who murdered their aunt, the missing years bleed into his mind. Like ghost ships returning to a foggy port, each memory carries terror, fear, and anguish. What he remembers, he desperately wants to forget and what he can’t remember, he desperately needs to know. The chilling answers he seeks are in his late Aunt Betsy’s haunted Mansion…if he can survive long enough to find them.
Treason on the Mississippi is a story of death, love, and redemption. An act of treason, a calculated murder…Grant’s campaign in the West is finished unless the case is solved.
The John Brown depicted is not the infamous Brown who ignited the War Against the States but a former Boston detective who solved a gruesome child murder case which caught the eye of Abe Lincoln, appointing him to U.S. Grants army. Brown uncovers treason at the highest levels of the Union Army. He sends for the one person who can help him with the investigation, Cpt. Alphonso Clay but before Clay could meet with Brown, Brown is assassinated. Now it is up to Cpt. Clay to decipher Brown’s cryptic notes and follow his deductive instincts to solve the murder, unveil the traitors, and ensure the Union’s victory at Vicksburg, a decisive battle of the war.

For all those who still do not believe that there is a Muslim invasion, please watch and listen. This is a Holy War whether it is with vest bombs or through subterfuge by coming to the U.S. legally or not and taking over via our own laws, then instigating Sharia – (/ʃəˈriːə/, Arabic: شريعة [ʃaˈriːʕa]), Islamic law or Sharia law is a religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition. It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. This must be stopped before whole towns and states are consumed. Their goal is the world.

ONE HELL OF A GOOD LETTER!
For those not familiar with military rank, the stripes on this man’s uniform are worn by only “one man” in the entire USAF, the “chief master sergeant of the United States Air Force.” He is the highest-ranking enlisted man in the USAF. He is said to speak to only two people, God and the Air Force Chief of Staff!
George Roof, Chief Master Sergeant, USAF (Retired)
For the validity of George Roof’s rant search it on Truth or Fiction: https://www.truthorfiction.com/george-roof-presidents-ive-known/
Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that bastard Robert McNamara, LB Johnson, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.
After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his ass waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. Nixon was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented. Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ Carter who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 and even the White House suffered the austerity.
Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they all loved him back. Esprit d’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism. Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.
Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the ‘Oral’ Office, sending a bomber to blow up Qaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.
I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah-rah patriots of WWII when they were ‘simply socialists’ waiting to feed him to the sharks.
Then there came the Manchurian Candidate Obama with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been ‘sealed.’ (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle, OR their two faked kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissension of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the crap that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us bullshit about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries.
Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had balls to impeach this charlatan Obama.
Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice Scalia suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some balls and rejects Obama’s Supreme Court, Justice nomination. The Libertards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros ‘has paid’ demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings.’ Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.
But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum.
Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince middle America not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform. Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote, and creamed it.
The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the old hag Ginsburg who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually retire and leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.
Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election ‘was’ rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.
This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-assed whimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us.
Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America. Donald Trump has done more in his short time in the public eye … he prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming president!
So for you liberal lurkers and you half-assed fence-sitters, tough shit! You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BASTARDS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril. You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace.
This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you ‘forfeit’ your American citizenship, YES, HE IS YOUR PRESIDENT!!!! Go cry a river some place they need water.
SEND THIS TO OTHER AMERICANS YOU KNOW … Like it, share it.
‘In God We Trust’ Will be on every e-mail I send out from now on because, I don’t want to lose our right to say it! And I repeat “God Bless America.

Lewis has been invited to speak on Inspiring Teachers Show @ ShowTeachers podcast May 1st at 4:30 EST. We will be discussing How Missing Pieces can lift up a classroom.
“Missing Pieces, while fictional, is laced with reality. The character Melvin Bramble is based on my stepfather who took pleasure in abusing my mother, my two brothers, and myself. Fortunately, I had a courageous mother, who on a cold winter’s night loaded a car with her three boys and escaped that house of horrors. She had no job and no money, but she did have a sister who took us in while she looked for work. As you read this, thousands of families are going through the same nightmare as I did. Only for them, they have no place to go, no one to turn to, and no hope for escape. Maybe you are a member of one of those families. If you need a safe loving home for your children until you can get on your feet, contact Nana’s House. Their Mission is to provide a safe, secure, loving home where children ages newborn to eleven-years-old can come and experience God’s love. They can help you find the missing pieces and turn your negatives into positives.” RH Lewis
In Missing Pieces, an unconscious nine-year-old boy is rushed to an emergency room in Anchorage Alaska. A victim of a severe beating, he awakens with no memory of who he is or what his life was before that moment. Fearing for his life, philanthropist Betsy Fletcher changed his name to Jace Burke and placed him with a family in Florida. For six years, Jace grew up happy with his rambunctious step-sister Cailey. Through the years the two kept in touch with Ms. Fletcher, lovingly calling her Aunt Betsy.
But happiness turns to anger when Aunt Betsy is found dead in a small town deep in the backwoods of Maine. Jace and Cailey are convinced Aunt Betsy was murdered. But asking questions in a small town comes with grave consequences, and to prove murder may cost them their lives. As they dig for answers, dark, missing pieces of memories bleed into Jace’s mind. Like ghost ships returning to a foggy port, each carries terror and fear. What he remembers he desperately wants to forget and what he can’t remember he desperately needs to know. The truth is hidden in Aunt Betsy’s haunted mansion if they can live long enough to find it.
