IRS Scandal Will Take Down The Entire Government: FBI, ATF, OSHA and EPA All Involved

No, USG will not cease to exist, but this scandal is going to explode and bring down the entire Obama Administration and multiple agencies.

Once more we have evidence of a coordinated attack on enemies of the government (and note that this is not politically motivated in all cases, criticizing the Federal Reserve economic policy, with no mention of politics, is grounds for a federal assault).

Agencies now involved in this scandal include: IRS, FBI, EPA, ATF and OSHA.

How the world works

Britons warned to steer clear of Turkey as 1,700 protesters arrested after riots rock the country for a third day
Calling the protesters 'a few looters', Erdogan said he would press ahead with redeveloping Istanbul's Taksim Square, a project which provoked the demonstrations that have widened into a broader show of defiance against his Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP).
Erdogan singled out the Republican People's Party (CHP) - set up in 1924 by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk who founded Turkey's modern secular state - for attack over a dispute he described as ideological. 'We think that the main opposition party which is making resistance calls on every street is provoking these protests,' Erdogan said on Turkish television.
Turkey's fiercest anti-government unrest for years erupted when trees were torn down at a park in Taksim Square under government plans to construct a new mosque and rebuild a replica Ottoman-era barracks. 
No one believes trees are the reason for these protests, but they were the spark. What is the fuel? We can see it below: the Turkish lira has been falling, tumbling to $0.52 at the end of May. Economic deterioration can take place for a long time before people decide to react.

The IRS Cannot Be Reformed

The IRS scandal is going to explode. It is not a localized scandal targeting Tea Party groups, as the Michael Burry example shows. Here is the text from the linked portion of that video:
In 2010, I published an op-ed in The New York Times posing what I thought was a valid question of the Federal Reserve, Congress, and the President: “I saw the Crisis coming, why did not the Fed?”
Never did any member of Congress, any member of government for that matter, reach out to me for an open, collegial discussion on what went wrong, or what could be done. Rather, within two weeks, all six of my defunct funds were audited. The Congressional Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission demanded all of my emails and lists of people with whom I had conversed going back to 2003. And a little later, the FBI showed up.
A million in legal and accounting costs, and thousands of hours of time wasted, all because I asked questions. It seemed they would pump me at gunpoint, or not at all.
It goes even deeper than that. Not only did they scrutinize conservative groups and target people who spoke out in the media (and in the case of Burry, he didn't even take an ideological stance), they targeted people who sent money to "conservative" groups.

IRS may have targeted conservatives more broadly
Catherine Engelbrecht’s family and business in Texas were audited by the government after her voting-rights group sought tax-exempt status from the IRS.
Retired military veteran Mark Drabik of Nebraska became active in and donated to conservative causes, then found the IRS challenging his church donations.
The government is at war with conservatives. There is no way to reform the IRS or the other branches of government because reform would involved firing 50% of the workforce and replacing them with conservatives. It's just not going to happen. The system is so unjust that no amount of reform will keep this from happening again. The only solution is abolition.
