Pulling Weeds in the DC Startup Garden

If the DC Startup ecosystem was a garden and all the startups were plant life, the good companies would be flowers, especially Urban Stems and Bloompop that happen to sell flowers. If the DC Startup ecosystem was a garden than the DC Startup Tech "Journalists" would be the farmers who shine sunlight and spread manure in our gardens. "Journalists" from Tecnical.ly DC and DCInno do a great job of spreading the crap. They indiscriminately spread life-giving nutrients to all plants be they flowers or weeds. That's great because every garden needs fertilizer. If the DC Startup ecosystem was a garden it would be a small garden and unfortunately, this garden is over-fertilized with poo and is infested with weeds. The weeds you ask? They are companies like Trustify, Chalant Health, Union, and LifeFuels, with "Venture Craptial" firms like 3Si, with false prophets like Paul Singh, Evan Burfield, Jonathon Perrelli. they are the second tier, phonies who don't even qualify to the 1st class huckster status like, Jason Feimster, Matthew Pugsley, and Janet Ridgely. To the outright abusive criminals like Andy Powers, Danny Boice, and Jen Mellon. If the DC Startup ecosystem was a garden, this garden would need a gardener willing to get his or her...

Jen Mellon is Unfaithful

Mr. Cranky opens up his mail today. And today's entry from Mr. Cranky's mailbag is from a first time writer who submits the case that Jen Mellon is unfaithful. I'm sorry fans, but Mr. Cranky doesn't control his incoming mail so once again we talk the Trustify Danny Boice and Jen Mellon story. What is Faith? Jen Mellon, alledged cofounder of Trustify proclaims to be a woman of faith. She claims to be born again. Yet all who know her intimately will share that Jen Mellon is unfaithful to her faith. Jen Mellon cheats and lies to her investors. She uses money intended to build Trustify for personal use. For a lavish life. Jen Mellon is unfaithful as a corporate officer to her investors. Jen Mellon abuses her employees. Jen Mellon is unfaithful to her employees. Jen Mellon is unfaithful to her husbands, boyfriends, fiances, and friends. Jen Mellon is unfaithful to her friends and lovers. [caption id="attachment_78892" align="alignright" width="385"] Jen Lies about her Family Ties with the real Mellon Family[/caption] Update July 6th, 2018: Jen is a social climber. She's always looked to upgrade. In fact, she use to tell people that she was part of the prestigious Mellon Family. Funny story there. Jen was at a...

Hear Trustify’s Jen Mellon Lie on June 20th

Yes I know I'm talking about Jen Mellon, the horrible human masquerading as a do-gooder and founder of a great startup and wife of Danny Boice. For my regular readers, this is old hat and you don't have to read it. I know, I'm a bulldog with a bone that won't let go. This post is targeted for those who are not regular readers and who may be taken in by the classy facade of the rotting Potemkin Villiage that is Trustify and it's leaders. There is a group of people, sponsoring a talk by Mellon and these people who are putting their reputations on the line. I can only assume they haven't looked behind the curtain. These sponsors are aiding and abetting criminal activity by seeming to endorse two criminals. Want to hear a bunch of lies? Want to meet a pathological lying sociopath in person? Then come and hear Trustify's Jen Mellon lie about all kinds of things including how she retroactively founded a company (neat trick Jen Mellon). Multiple people forwarded to me the invitation pictured below. Not because they thought the meeting was worthwhile. Even  I, politically incorrect Mr. Cranky won't repeat the Samantha-Bee-Type-verbiage used in the emails making fun of this event featuring Jen...

Why Won’t Danny Boice and Jen Mellon Sue Me?

They threatened, they told me if I didn't take down my blogs and apologize they'd sue me. So I posted more blogs. More posts incriminating these crooks and you know what happened? No lawsuit. Not a peep. Nothing! Nada! Why won't Danny Boice and Jen Mellon sue me? It's been over a year since they threatened me but it appears it was an empty threat. No lawsuit. They used a joke of an attorney. A cheap-ass ambulance chaser...

Matthew Pugsley is a conman and he Strikes Again

Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Not everyone knows this about him as evidenced by a phone call I just had with a friend. This buddy, who shall remain nameless, was recently at a cocktail party where he met a guy who had no idea Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Over drinks and small talk their conversation went something like this: Sucker: "So what do you do?" Friend: "I'm a Venture Capitlist." Sucker: "Really? I just made my first venture investment." Friend: "In what company?" Sucker: "A little company called Chalant Health. I don't know much about it or how they're doing but my boss invested six figures." <Awkward Silence as Friend struggles not to lose his drink through his nose> Friend: "You know you might want to google them." Hey Sucker, let me google that for you! Try this link. See how easy that was? Do you know what you would have learned had you done that before you stroked a check? Matthew Pugsley is a conman. Let me make this perfectly clear, Pugsley ain't no businessman. Pugsley ain't no saint. Pugsley ain't no upstanding citizen. Matthew Pugsley is a conman, and Chalant Health is a house of cards. This isn't Matt's first con. This isn't Matt's first company from which he embezzled...
