FrontFront groups are intended to deceive the casual observer by carrying out actions without disclosing who instigated them. They include astroturf (fake 'grassroots' organisations) operated by legitimate companies as well as fronts operated by groups with more questionable legitimacy to provide plausible deniability to as criminal groups, governments or intelligence agencies.
Front groupSpooky activities occur behind closed doors under the cover of a front group.
Hit squadTeams of assassins
Intelligence agencyThe distinction between secret societies, intelligence agencies or international groups may be slightly moot on occasions. Many are officially allowed to commit serious crimes such as murder, and are subject to minimal effective oversight anyway.

MilitaryMilitary groups, generally hierarchical in nature, often controlled by nation states, are organisations that specialise in using violence to achieve political ends of their masters.
Muslim Brotherhood
Proud BoysA FBI affiliated "opposition" group.
RegulatorGovernment agencies tasked with trying to make markets work in the public interest by e.g. protecting the environment, preventing fraud etc. Often (especially in US) these are subjects of "regulatory capture" whereby they are effectively controlled by the exact same commercial groups they are nominally in charge of regulating.
