"As we wrote before, the CLOUD Act is a far-reaching, privacy-upending piece of legislation that will:
Enable foreign police to collect and wiretap people's communications from U.S. companies, without obtaining a U.S. warrant.
Allow foreign nations to demand personal data stored in the United States, without prior review by a judge.
Allow the U.S. president to enter "executive agreements" that empower police in foreign nations that have weaker privacy laws than the United States to seize data in the United States while ignoring U.S. privacy laws.
Allow foreign police to collect someone's data without notifying them about it.
Empower U.S. police to grab any data, regardless if it's a U.S. person's or not, no matter where it is stored.
And, as we wrote before, this is how the CLOUD Act could work in practice:
London investigators want the private Slack messages of a Londoner they suspect of bank fraud. The London police could go directly to Slack, a U.S. company, to request and collect those messages. The London police would not necessarily need prior judicial review for this request. The London police would not be required to notify U.S. law enforcement about this request. The London police would not need a probable cause warrant for this collection."

This is pretty much what the NSA and Jewgle does anyway, it's not like Jewgle ever needed a warrant to hand off the goyim's data at the drop of a hat. You can protect yourself the same way you did before, by not creating this data in the first place.
-Host your own email (mailinabox, it's not that hard)
-Use Tor and (not or) a VPN for anything you don't want recorded indefinitely. You can connect to a VPN over Tor to access things you can't normally get over Tor (torrents, etc), the VPN provider doesn't get your IP, its the Tor exit node. This means nothing if you pay for the VPN, use a free one (vpngate)
-If your going to carry around botnet in your pocket, root the phone, use a custom rom without google services installed, install a firewall that requires root, block app permissions (gps, camera, mic, etc).
-Do not use services that collect large amounts of data in the first place, you know what these services are. (Gmail/Dropbox/Yahoo/Microsoft)
-Install gentoo (seriously get the fuck off windows 10)
-Do not use any cloud based services, encrypted messaging apps with a middleman in the cloud are not secure are never will be.
-Use PGP encrypted messaging to send messages securely over the internet.
