We confirmed, that they will listen on your call, your internet session, etc, particularly if you’re a foreigner; me and you.
The whole current B.S is about “So what you’re doing, is U.S constitutionally compliant ?” and everyone knows, if you’re asking the question at the first place, it’s probably because it is not and so people focus on having the U.S intelligence community to stop doing this. This might take a while doh…
What will happens after restriction applies (if it does) :
– NSA will act upon their new interpretation on the word “Spying” and will gather the same kind of data, in a different way, since it is presented in a different way.
– If they can’t, they will reach and use their CSEC friends or any five eyes friends and get that data since it was collected as normal spying operation from a foreign gov, but since they are friendly, they share the info and then it is not collected by the NSA but acquired.
Oath Of Office:
Oaths of office are a statement of loyalty to a constitution or other legal text or to a person or other office-holder (e.g., an oath to support the constitution of the state, or of loyalty to the king). Under the laws of a state it may be considered treason or a high crime to betray a sworn oath of office.
If you expose wrongdoing done by your gov, which is against the constitution, it should be seeing as Oath right of disclosure, in order to protect the constitution.

So what are your options ?
You should encrypt everything you do.
That simple. Don’t wait for U.S congress to say “The way you defined it, it is illegal”.
Move on and encrypt your communications right now.
The justice system, in the US and mostly around the world, works on a double standard and when it’s time to have privacy, you don’t have a word to say, or if you prefer your words will be listen.
Your pick on how you want to behave online.
