#unsolvedpostmortem while we’re at it, @shanemadej ‘s theory that the government might be using aliens as a distraction is SO smart, cos there might be smth else that they are working on that’s a more immediate threat than ‘small green creatures with large heads’ @ryansbergara.

@murpharoo Here we go... “Donald Trump has declared China is a threat to the world “in a sense” and raised the spectre of Australia joining a coalition of military action against Iran as he characterised his ally Scott Morrison, as a “man of titanium”..

@RealCandaceO @kathleen_belew @kathleen_belew has a PhD from Yale. And the DHS literally just identified white nationalism as a major terrorist threat..

@DHSgov @FBI this person needs to be investigated for a threat to Justice Kavanaugh https://t.co/JVsdiXdK1f.

I wanted to rewrite and replace both Republican senator(s) with Steve Daines... but that seems like the kind of thing a man that hides in the bathroom from his constituents might consider a real threat. So I decided to not threaten Daines with Trump. #mtpol https://t.co/y0HdcbHqie.

This great piece by @JosephNSanberg & @rhealthmaster underscores why the for-profit health industry is a middle class economic threat. As health care costs skyrocket and wages stagnate, American businesses & workers need relief: they need #MedicareForAll. https://t.co/NeKepYdkoK.

UPDATE: nothing happened at the school yet students are still making jokes taking it as a joke and the person who made the threat was LET GO like are you fucking serious??.

@weberosie Is this a threat?.

I’m NOT a morning person lol a ballistic missile threat could be going on and I’ll be sleeping through it, true story.

...the Framers... created a mechanism for considering whether a president is subverting the rule of law or pursuing his own self-interest at the expense of the general welfare—in short, whether his continued tenure in office poses a threat to the republic https://t.co/skurngZ8GV.

DHS Just Finally Recognized White Nationalism as a Major Terror Threat https://t.co/qvWiF3g4zQ.

@Matthew_Shadle @Max61725792 @DeanDettloff @MBoudway @THBevilacqua @MatthewSitman Fascism only arises in the context of a communist threat you numpty. Read theory.

@HouseDemocrats @AOC @SenateDems @RepAdamSchiff The U.S. has no rules for when the president is a national security threat. The #Whistleblower controversy reveals the limits of our system’s defenses. #USNeedsPresidentialNationalSecurity https://t.co/XOrB4mmVBr.

@mkelly007 @Elb3001 I heard a rumor APD was concerned you were a threat to others based on your posts about being harassed and protecting yourself from cyberbullying with firearms and wanting to beat people up. But who knows.

@journalsentinel Actually she just made an implicit threat of violence against the governer. A federal crime..

@repgregwalden @HouseVetAffairs Representative Walden, Those brave people fought for their country. They were willing to give their lives. You are in a position in history where you can defend this country with more effectiveness than they did against just as big a threat. But you are afraid to lose your job..

@dsfreem @MaxBoot “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time, Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat..

@JLo finally getting notice for her hard work! Y’all been sleeping on her for years! She’s honestly a triple threat! Y’all ain’t shit for not supporting the Latin queen! #jlo #jenniferlopez https://t.co/F2EY8bFFQF.

This is the second incident of this type in the last month, the last was a car running into Trump Plaza in upper State New York. This is a real threat, and precautions should be taken to reduce the threat. Parking cars and or truc…https://t.co/tk9JHBPM9b https://t.co/BpVDiMoiDX.

@nytimes Liar, liar 🤥. Trump’s a threat to the world!.

@brianstelter @jaketapper @TheLeadCNN Yes WSJ stressing no quid pro quo, I can already hear the Trumpies defense... yeah sure, everything about leaks was right EXCEPT a “promise”. But even if true, clearly the Ukraine understood what the mobster was implying even if there was no explicit threat or bribe “promise”..

@AntonChigurh81 Healthy Nkeal Harry could be a big threat down the road, either this year or in upcoming years.

#savehazem My brother has been kidnapped by the Egyptian regime. He has is an apolitical person. I received a threat yesterday from the Embassy in Washington and when I rejected their offer.
