Maggie McCarthy (formerly Maggie VandenBerghe) / "Fog City Midge"
Filmmaker. Journalist. Activist. Patriot.
Hello! I am Maggie McCarthy (although you may know me by my maiden name—Maggie VandenBerghe). I am a filmmaker, turned citizen journalist, turned conservative social media influencer, turned activist—and a patriot! (I definitely wear many hats!)
I started my career 20 years ago as a model & actress and then later I fell in love with producing and making movies. I worked in the entertainment industry for over 15 years with extensive credits in front of as well as behind the camera.
I've acted in over a hundred projects including commercials, major Hollywood movies, and independent films. I have produced an award-winning web series, penned feature films, directed shorts and music videos, and wrote and directed a feature film.
I have been passionate about conservative politics & causes since I was a teenager, but when I moved to LA to work in the entertainment industry I was told not to share my conservative beliefs or else I would lose jobs and opportunities. It gnawed at my conscience, and I had to bite my tongue constantly. I never spoke up publicly until I got involved in late 2017, lending my filmmaking skills to other conservative YouTubers to help create content to help spread the conservative message.
My conservative viral videos have had over 200 million views since I began posting my own videos in 2018 and I have been blessed to work alongside some of the biggest names in conservative politics.
My work has been featured on Fox News, TheBlaze, The Red State, Rebel Media,America’s Voice News, The Epoch Times, InfoWars, Louder with Crowder as well as shared by President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Sara Carter, David Horowitz' Freedom Center, Dan Scavino, Ben Shapiro, and Dinesh D'Souza. I have been interviewed on NewsMax, i24 News, Fox Radio with Todd Starnes, The Answer and Salem Radio, local Fox11 and ABC7, and many podcasts.
I appeared daily on Steve Bannon's WarRoom from November 2020 - January 2021, extensively covering the fraud which took place in the 2020 election.
After seeing the abysmal failure of the Republican Party and the way they turned their back on the American people after the 2020 election I started to question my loyalties to the GOP.
I got involved with the Patriot Party of Arizona to help maintain & restore constitutional conservatism to this great state which I now call home. I moved cross country to get involved with their grassroots activism and to help them save Arizona, and America.
I met my husband Daniel McCarthy through the Patriot Party. Daniel ran for US Senate in 2020 in the Republican Primary and realized that election fraud had occurred his election. Daniel immediately went to work to sound the alarm and inform the world that they were about to rig the election against Donald Trump in November 2020.
Daniel and the Patriot Party of Arizona went to work immediately to create legislation to change the current election laws which can be easily rigged via machines connected to a network and unsecure mail-in ballots. You can learn more about HB 222289, the election legislation we wrote here.
Daniel & I are committed to spending the rest of our lives fighting communism in our government and to do all we can to help ensure future generations of Americans enjoy the freedoms guaranteed to us in the US Constitution.
