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.
Although I have been a lifelong conservative, I was never vocal about my politics (for fear of being blacklisted) until I left the entertainment industry for good and started to produce videos with other conservative YouTubers in 2018.
My conservative viral videos have had hundreds of millions of views. 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 moved cross-country to get involved with the grassroots activism of the Patriot Party of Arizona. We are committed to restore & maintain constitutional conservatism in the state of Arizona.
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 started speaking out about the impending fraud which was coming up in Donald Trump's 2020 election.
Daniel and the Patriot Party of Arizona started to draft legislation to amend 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.
