That there are so many that this would be breaking news to is scary.  

Its proof enough to me that sheeple are real and they are now the majority.

and what is stunning is that people can look at this, look at the level of our govt's participation, the actual "russian" info put out there and still hold the beliefs that they do

Threat being the key word and yes anyone on a computer is under threat anywhere at any time so of course there should be due diligence to prevent out and out hacking no question about that. I would reiterate though the rest of the world is under more threat from us then Russia or even China regarding election meddling mostly through the CIA.

2016 was likely a first attempt/dry run. They attacked at least 21 voter systems and successfully penetrated at least a handful of them.

The thing they were likely doing was probing for weaknesses and learning about the systems so that any future interference might be less obvious/easily detected.  

The "nothing to see here" stance in the face of such facts  strikes me as foolishly naive (or maybe politically motivated?). 

Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems, top U.S. official says

Never said that, it is all true. I just don't see the problem, how are you going to stop internet trolls and bots cause essentially that is what we are talking about.

Russian Threat To Elections To Persist Through 2018, Spy Bosses Warn Congress

February 13, 2018 • Moscow's interference in the United States and the West has continued since 2016 and is forecast to persist through this year's midterm races, the U.S. intelligence community says.
I think this is the story where the GOP guy says it's clear they tried, and most likely failed, in 2016, but their efforts are clearly refined and are likely to be directed at soft targets as a proof of the system.

I don't get it, what is the problem with this? The United States has been and does far more direct meddling with boots on the ground than Russia ever could. Meddling in elections is one of the few categories we are still undisputed leaders of. Is this illegal? I don't think so. Did they influence any votes with these tweets? Probably, good for them and bad for anyone who is influenced by such silliness as a tweet. I hope Putin gives those trolls and bot creators raises, they have done a good job. How many voting machines have they hacked into and changed the results on? Wake me up when you find that.

concerning the current production?

i think in the end they've got to come up with something/anything

even if it is inventing a new "political" standard on a go-forward basis

and speaking of bovard...
