Just looking at the title and doing a little Googling (well, Duck, Duck Go-ing) confirmed that Beck is a conspiracy theorist (although I remember thinking that he was a nutter)
Wikipedia
A November 2020 article in The Daily Beast said that even before Biden became president, his "incoming White House already ha[d] its first conspiracy theory to deal with"—the Great Reset conspiracy theory.[66] Mainstream media outlets such as The New York Times,[67] the BBC,[1] and The Guardian traced the spread of the latest conspiracy theory on the Great Reset, which had integrated anti-lockdown conspiracies, to internet personalities and groups, including Candace Owens, Glenn Beck, Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson,[49][68][1][69] and Paul Joseph Watson,[70] the UK-based editor of Alex Jones' website Infowars, where he advanced the New World Order conspiracy theory.[71]

Re: Introducing Peter Zeihan
I looked at Zeihan, and while he seems better qualified than your usual sources I noted some worrying signs.
See what Kirkus Reviews had to say Wikipedia
Zeihan is enthusiastic in his writing, and he covers a great deal of territory, some of it in superficial or questionable fashion. Are countries really going to develop their own pirate fleets to seize supply ships? Will the U.S. establish a quasi-empire of the Americas, using food as a weapon of intimidation? Is China facing collapse within a decade?
There certainly needs to be more done to restrict climate change, and moving to alternative power sources. But the doom and gloom seems to be going too far.

Re: Candace Over AOC
quote:
Candace Owens is far smarter than Alexandria Occasio Cortez could ever hope to be. She is articulate, well-read, and blessedly conservative. You will have to show me where she ties in with the Great Reset conspiracy.
Why would I have to do that?
At best she’s a grifter preying on the far right’s love of hate and lies and racism. If that’s your ideal, I feel sorry for you.
