Maggie McCarthy

    (formerly Maggie VandenBerghe & @fogcitymidge)

    Filmmaker. Journalist. Activist. Patriot. 🇺🇸

    I learned how to be a filmmaker from the ground up. Grunt-work, acting, story development, pre-production, packaging, writing, acting, producing—I did it all.


    Along the way, I discovered an important difference between me and those around me. I was conservative. Rather than hide it, I decided to embrace it...proudly. Today, I’m working to inspire & organize a new generation of conservative Americans.


    My videos have had more that 200 million views and been shared across the social media landscape. I’ve been invited to discuss social media at the White House, met President Trump, been featured in conservative media, and appeared as a regular on Steven K. Bannon’s WarRoom program.


    My work has been featured on Fox News, TheBlaze, OAN, NewsMax, The Epoch Times & InfoWars as well as shared by President Donald Trump, Don Jr, Sebastian Gorka, Sara Carter, Ben Shapiro & Dinesh D'Souza to name but a few. I've been interviewed and appeared for commentary on FoxNews, NewsMax, Real America's Voice, the BBC, and by Candace Owens, Dennis Prager, Fox Radio with Todd Starnes & many podcasts.


    I live in Arizona where I am committed to restoring & maintaining constitutional conservatism through my work with the Patriot Party of Arizona and with my husband Daniel McCarthy.


    Please, join me on an exciting adventure. Sign up for my email list at FogCityMidge.com and find out how you can be part of the resistance to tyranny. I recommend everyone support our work with the Patriot Party of Arizona as we create the blueprint for how freedom loving patriots can reclaim power from communists in America.

    #wanderlust: a comedic road trip adventure

    The Story: Two best girl friends from San Francisco set out on a Hawaiian car-camping getaway in search of adventure, Instagram likes, and the meaning of life. Along the way disaster ensues, a friendship is challenged, and spiritual fulfillment is realized during an unlikely series of events culminating in a sacred dance ritual.


    A coming-of-age tale for the millennial generation...it's kind of like Frances Ha meets Little Miss Sunshine with a touch of Thelma & Louise.


    Fin! The movie premiered at the Portland International Film Festival #PDXFF in Summer of 2017 and was nominated for Best Narrative Feature film of 125 movies. #wanderlust played at several other regional film festivals and on the Big Island Hawaii.
