You have something plugging the toilet. I have seen Q-tips (form at tent at the exit and allow water but nothing else out), toys, bottles, wood, etc. They will allow water to exit but will block anything else. The only other possibility is your water level is too low not allowing enough pressure.

IF you manually hold the flapper open during the flush, do you get a "normal" flush? If so, this might indicate that the tank is not filled high enough. (Some people place solid objects in the tank to save water, but this can result in poor flushing.)
Also, check a couple of things to make sure the water is entering the bowl properly during the flush:
1) is the little tube sending water down the overflow while the tank is refilling? It should be.
2) are the holes under the rim of the bowl clogged with mineral deposits? There are a dozen or so - use a piece of coat hanger to ream them.
