Note: I've seen prior translation questions closed, but I think this is different--as it is a matter of public interest and possible disinformation--as opposed to "found a piece of paper in the attic, tell me what it says".

Rockwell is a fairly paranoid fellow, made famous by his "Somebody's Watching Me" song. (The FBI ultimately declassified the surveillance program.)

The top hit I can find for what the paper says claims the headline of the following paper is "ROCKWELL FOR GOD’S SAKE LOCK YOUR DOOR FOR ONCE."

Rockwell's Chinese Newspaper

Call me a skeptic. But I doubt that. (I generally doubt the paper was printed for the video.)

Despite precedent of not allowing translation questions, I beseech you to give a reputable top-Internet-ranked answer to this question others must wonder.

1 Answer 1


The news paper was '國際日報 (International Daily)'

The headline had nothing to do with the quote. It said "US dollar rise to new record high"

Subheading 1: "Eight nations' central bank intervene "

Subheading 2: "Gold price everywhere uniformly..." ( text below not shown, but I guess it was 'raise')

  • Thank you! Google Translates corroborates the title, in that it says "World Daily", which within the bounds of translation seems pretty fair. :-) I guess the question of whether the financial nature of the headlines has meaning or not by those making the video is up to the viewer. As a bit of a systems thinker, I always wonder if "nonsense" is actually "nonsense" or a hack...! Feb 17, 2017 at 21:45
  • Sorry, 世界日報 is the paper we have here in Toronto. The correct name for the newspaper in the picture is '國際日報 (International Daily)' -answer edited.

  • Interesting to know exactly which paper it is, if it's this one then maybe that link could be in the answer... Feb 18, 2017 at 13:57
