I suggest you be very careful if using a snake - particularly extending the metal snake beyond what you can see. Depending upon the make of your head, there is a high risk of damaging rubber components which make up the valves and gaskets.

Try using a manual bilge pump to empty as much liquid from the bowl as possible and begin to disassemble the manual pump - working your way down to the discharge hose and finally, if the source of clogging isn't yet found, to the rubber joker valve at the base of the toilet.
