We investigate magnetic and superconducting instabilities of the two-dimensional t-t(') Hubbard model on a square lattice at van Hove densities from weak to intermediate coupling by means of the two-particle self-consistent approach. We find that as the next-nearest-neighbor hopping \t(')\ increases from zero, the leading instability is towards an incommensurate spin-density wave whose wave vector moves slowly away from (pi,pi). For intermediate values of \t(')\, the leading instability is towards d(x)(2)-y(2)-wave superconductivity. For larger \t(')\>0.33t, there are signs of a crossover to ferromagnetism at extremely low temperatures. The suppression of the crossover temperature is driven by Kanamori screening that strongly renormalizes the effective interaction and also causes the crossover temperature to depend only weakly on t('). Electronic self-energy effects for large \t(')\ lead to considerable reduction of the zero-energy single-particle spectral weight beginning at temperatures as high as Tless than or similar to0.1t, an effect that may be detrimental to the existence of a ferromagnetic ground state at weak coupling.
