In an emotional interview last night with his wife Ashley at his side, Judge Brett Kavanaugh told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that he strongly denies all the last minute, “totally false and outrageous” charges of sexual impropriety against him, that he will not withdraw from the Supreme Court nomination, and that he has faith in God and the fairness of the American people.
Kavanaugh said he’s already denied these allegations to the Senate under penalty of perjury, adding, "I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise. I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone." Ashley backed him fully, saying, "I know Brett. I've known him for 17 years. He's decent, he's kind, he's good. I know his heart. This is not consistent with Brett."
Kavanaugh said, "All I'm asking for is fairness and that I be heard in this process." Unfortunately, as we’ve already learned from Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, both of those things no longer apply if you are a man accused of a sex offense. You’re just supposed to shut up and admit it, even if you’re innocent. It’s apparently the Democrats' new standard of justice, replacing the old fashioned “rule of law” and “due process” that must be thrown out because they were invented by old, dead, white guys. Something for all men or any woman who loves any man to remember when voting in November.

Kavanaugh also offered up two defenses that I’d wager the Democrats howling for his head never saw coming: First, he actually kept a meticulous calendar of his high school and college years and still has it. It shows that he was away on vacation or busy with other things such as study, sports and church activities during most of the times that his accusers allege he was drunkenly partying.
And he also said that he was a virgin until well after college, and he never had sex with anyone or even close during that time. That’s something I’m certain his Democratic haters never counted on, because it's so far outside their frame of reference: a religious man openly declaring that he was a virgin until well into adulthood.
The left has spent decades swinging a pickax at the foundations of traditional Christian morality. They’ve attacked and ridiculed outdated notions such as charity, modesty, sobriety, self-discipline and respect for the Biblical definition of marriage. They’ve insisted that you can’t stop teenagers from having sex, so you should just give them free condoms. They’ve driven religious expression off campuses and undermined discipline by parents and teachers until they’re expected to be the kids’ “friends” and let them do whatever they want rather than “stifle” them. They’ve argued that it’s somehow empowering for girls to encourage them to binge-drink and have casual sex like drunken frat boys, and anyone who suggests that might be a bad idea is assailed as a “rape victim shamer.”
Then, having corrupted and demoralized youth culture, they seek to pull a 180 and destroy a Republican SCOTUS nominee by suddenly turning into Puritans and accusing him of the same behavior in school that they encouraged and fostered for decades – only to discover that thanks to his strong religious faith, he didn’t fall for their siren song and isn’t ashamed to admit it. It must be shocking for them to comprehend that they weren’t able to corrupt the one person they have worked so hard to attack for being corrupted.
