MSNBC To Host Democratic Debate Ahead Of New Hampshire Primary

Source: CNN

MSNBC announced Sunday that it will hold a Democratic presidential debate Thursday, Feb. 4, in New Hampshire ahead of the first-in-the-nation primary.

The debate will take place at the University of New Hampshire in Durham at 9 p.m. Eastern and be moderated by Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow. All three Democratic presidential candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley are expected to attend.

The Democratic National Committee, which has been under pressure from voters and candidates to add more debates to the primary schedule, has said the debate will be sanctioned and is moving towards sanctioning additional debates with the agreement of the candidates.

UPDATE: Via CNN: Dem candidates to attend New Hampshire town hall:

The Democratic presidential hopefuls will make closing arguments to New Hampshire voters Wednesday during a prime-time CNN town hall in Derry -- less than one week before votes are cast in the New Hampshire primary.

Iran Offers to Mediate Talks Between Republicans and Obama (Borowitz Report)


TEHRAN (The Borowitz Report)—Stating that “their continuing hostilities are a threat to world peace,” Iran has offered to mediate talks between congressional Republicans and President Obama.

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, made the offer one day after Iran received what he called a “worrisome letter” from Republican leaders, which suggested to him that “the relationship between Republicans and Obama has deteriorated dangerously.”

“Tensions between these two historic enemies have been high in recent years, but we believe they are now at a boiling point,” Khamenei said. “As a result, Iran feels it must offer itself as a peacemaker.”

He said that his nation was the “logical choice” to jumpstart negotiations between Obama and the Republicans because “it has become clear that both sides currently talk more to Iran than to each other.”

He invited Obama and the Republicans to meet in Tehran to hash out their differences and called on world powers to force the two bitter foes to the bargaining table, adding, “It is time to stop the madness.”

Hours after Iran made its offer, President Obama said that he was willing to meet with his congressional adversaries under the auspices of Tehran, but questioned whether “any deal reached with Republicans is worth the paper it’s written on.”

186,116 signatures and rising quickly!

The petition to file charges against the 47 U.S. Senators who violated The Logan Act by attempting to undermine multilateral negotiations toward a nuclear agreement with Iran has garnered almost 200,000 signatures in less than two days. It currently has 188,072 signatures (6:45PM Pacific Time, Wednesday evening), and it has been steadily growing. It will likely hit 200,000 in under 48 hours, which to me seems significant. I think people are really pissed about this.

I know I am. This is serious business. This is intentionally throwing a monkey wrench into peace negotiations and undermining the authority of the Executive Branch. It also makes the United States look like anything but. What about our allies on the international stage and our partners in the nuclear negotiations? Well they have to be laughing...or crying...at how foolish and inept this makes our country's foreign policy look.

Are we the United States?? Or are our leaders just a bunch of squabbling kids trying to play quien es mas macho? I, for one, am deeply embarrassed - for my country, for myself and my countrymen, for the fact that THIS is what comes from the political opposition in my homeland. I am deeply embarrassed to have to share a nation with slimy rats who will go to any length to attempt to score some points and win a political football game. Even treason.

It is clear. Right-wing militarists control the Republican party. Their agenda will always be war. They are going to rattle their sabers, raise hue and cry and fearmonger for all their worth. Too many of them profit from the defense industry and do its bidding. If you support war, continue supporting Republican candidates.

I'm so pissed. How can they get away with this shit?!!


On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.

This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason.
