Would it be legal to take articles from one website, translate them roughly / rewrite them to another language, don't give any source (except for the photos) and then post them on a blog for ad revenue?

Yes of course, but what if I take a buzzfeed article and rewrite it into another language?
What if I took half of a buzzfeed article and half of anothers site's article and mix it together?
I mean buzzfeed usually sources reddit or twitter so I could source those links as well.
Nobody can prove I stole content?
You could try the kpop approach:
>find articles about major kpop news
>post translated excerpts and comments
>get hundreds of international kpop fans commenting on the translations
>make $$$ from all the ads posted all over your site
