Perclusio (per-clu’-si-o): A threat against someone, or something.

If you don’t stop the political craziness in Washington, DC, we’re going to stop paying federal income tax.  We’re sick of shelling out money to pay for bickering boring bunglers blaming their way toward dystopia in buggies drawn by toadies, sycophants, and lickspittles wearing cocked hats, smelly wool suits, and manifest destiny flip-flops.
